Abraham in arms : war and gender in colonial New England by Ann M Little( )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a reinterpretation of the years between 1620 and 1763, Ann M. Little reveals how ideas about gender and family life were central to the ways people in colonial New England, and their neighbors in New France and Indian Country, described their experiences in cross-cultural warfare. Little argues that English, French, and Indian people had broadly similar ideas about gender and authority. Because they understood both warfare and political power to be intertwined expressions of manhood, colonial warfare may be understood as a contest of different styles of masculinity
The many captivities of Esther Wheelwright by Ann M Little( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born and raised in a New England garrison town, Esther Wheelwright (1696-1780) was captured by Wabanaki Indians at age seven. Among them, she became a Catholic and lived like any other young girl in the tribe. At age twelve, she was enrolled at a French-Canadian Ursuline convent, where she would spend the rest of her life, eventually becoming the order's only foreign-born mother superior. Among these three major cultures of colonial North America, Wheelwright's life was exceptional: border-crossing, multilingual, and multicultural. This meticulously researched book discovers her life through the communities of girls and women around her: the free and enslaved women who raised her in Wells, Maine; the Wabanaki women who cared for her, catechized her, and taught her to work as an Indian girl; the French-Canadian and Native girls who were her classmates in the Ursuline school; and the Ursuline nuns who led her to a religious life"--Publisher's website
A 'wel ordered commonwealth' : gender and politics in New Haven Colony, 1636-1690 by Ann M Little( )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is an examination of the social hierarchies and distribution of political power in early New England. A hierarchy based in gender, or patriarchy, was not just a ranking of men over women, but a comprehensive social hierarchy that also encompassed distinctions of status, class, ethnicity, and eventually race. New Haven Colony's extensive collection of town and colony court records, probate records, and narratives of its earliest settlers furnish evidence that as a colony far from a centralized state or national church, a gendered hierarchy based in the household was especially important for the maintenance of the social order in early New Haven
Developmental Needs Data as Determinants for Professional Development Offerings in University Settings by Ann M Little( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the objectives of assisting state educators in designing school leadership programs, school administrators in Tennessee were surveyed to determine levels of training and perceived training needs. Questionnaires were administered in 1986 to school board members, principals, and superintendents. Part 1 of the questionnaire dealt with biographical and professional characteristics. The questionnaire and nine tables that summarize findings are appended and comprise nearly one-half of the document. Data gathered on demographic characteristics include age, sex, years of experience in educaiton and as an administrator, and undergraduate and graduate preparation. Recommendations derived from these data suggest that results be compared with relevant national and regional studies. Part 2 requested respondents to rank 15 topics that might prove beneficial for training/inservice activities. The following observations are made: (1) The need for first priority was ranked differently by each of the three groups; for example, "law/policy" ranks very high among board members and very low among principals and superintendents. (2) Leadership was in the top three needs identified by each group. (3) Principals and superintendents ranked public relations higher than did board members. The inservice needs identified in this survey therefore indicate areas that administrator education and reform efforts should address. (Cjh)
