Classroom in Conflict
Classroom in Conflict (September 1994)
Teaching Controversial Subjects in a Diverse Society
John A. Williams - Author

This book transcends recent debates about political correctness to address the underlying problems of teaching controversial subjects in the college and university history classroom. The author criticizes both sides of the debate, rejecting, on the one hand, calls for a uniform, chronological history curriculum and, on the other hand, claims that only ethnic or racial "insiders" are qualified to teach about their communities.
In chapters on colo...(Read More)

Baroque Festive Performances as Rhetorical Discourse
Kristiaan Aercke - Author

"While most scholars who have worked on the relationship of art and power in the Renaissance and Baroque ages have limited their focus to one national tradition, or at best to England, France, and Italy, Aercke brings the baroque spectacle performance to life as a truly pan-European phenomenon, as interesting for its common characteristics as for its particular formulation in particular courtly settings. The depth and breadth of his research are mo...(Read More)

Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge
Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge (July 1994)
Murray G. Murphey - Author

"This is philosophy of the highest order. Several of the most fundamental and challenging philosophical problems are discussed with analytical rigor, subtlety, originality, technical sophistication, detailed familiarity with the vast relevant literature, and lucidity. What I find most exciting is the way Murphey is able to make a powerful case for pragmatic naturalism and natural realism on the basis of an amazing mastery of the vast recent literatu...(Read More)

Edmund Burke and the Politics of Progress
James Conniff - Author

Neither a polemic nor a highly specialized study, this book is a comprehensive assessment of Burke's political thought. Using evidence from such neglected sources as Burke's essays on history and law and making full use of his extensive correspondence, the author places Burke in the context of developments in a number of areas of eighteenth-century British intellectual life, ranging from philosophy to literature, and presents him as a key figure in ...(Read More)

The Reign of Hisham Ibn 'Abd al-Malik and the Collapse of the Umayyads
Khalid Yahya Blankinship - Author

Demonstrates for the first time that the cause of the Umayyad caliphate’s collapse came not just from internal conflict, but from a number of external and concurrent factors that exceeded the caliphate’s capacity to respond.
Stretching from Morocco to China, the Umayyad caliphate based its expansion and success on the doctrine of jihad--armed struggle to claim the whole earth for God's rule, a struggle that had brought much materia...(Read More)

It is a study that vividly displays the dynamic interrelationship between capital, labor, and the state on a regional basis....It is well-researched, well-written, and a much-needed study of an important period of American labor history.” —American Historical Review

“I heartily recommend this bo...(Read More)

Protestants and Public Culture in Antebellum Cleveland
Michael J. McTighe - Author

This book examines the role Protestants played in the formation of the public culture of antebellum Cleveland, a developing commercial city typical of many cities throughout the Midwest. The author analyzes the extent to which, and the way in which, Protestants were able to exercise power in the city, concluding that they achieved a measure of success during the years 1836 to 1860, after which their power began to erode. As a framework for this an...(Read More)
