Respectable burial : Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery by Brian J Young( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Respectable Burial is a social history of death, burial, and Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery. A place of great beauty, the Mount Royal Cemetery was an inspiration for Frederick Law Olmstead's adjacent Mount Royal Park and played a part in the development of the city of Montreal. Brian Young shows how the history of the Mount Royal Cemetery mirrors the evolving social makeup, changing mores, and tragic events of what was long Canada's largest city. He examines the changes in the cemetery's landscaping, architecture, and use and shows how, in its evolution from a rural burying ground founded by Montreal's Protestant elite to an urban cemetery, Mount Royal Cemetery has introduced Montreal to new customs and sensibilities from Jewish, Chinese, Greek Orthodox, Buddhist, and other communities."--Jacket
Patrician families and the making of Quebec : the Taschereaus and McCords by Brian J Young( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History has often ignored the influence in modern Quebec of family dynasties, patriarchy, seigneurial land, and traditional institutions. Following the ascent of four generations from two families through eighteenth-century New France to the onset of the First World War, Patrician Families and the Making of Quebec compares the French Catholic Taschereaus and the Anglican and English-speaking McCords. Consulting private, institutional, and legal archives, Brian Young studies eight family patriarchs. Working as merchants or colonial administrators in the first generation, they became seigneurial proprietors, officeholders, and prelates. The heads of both families used marriage arrangements, land stewardship, and judgeships to position their heirs. Young shows how patriarchy was a central force in both domestic and public life, as well as the ways in which Taschereau and McCord family strategies extended into the marrow of Quebec society through moral authority, influence on national identities, and their positions within senior offices in religious, judicial, and university institutions. Through courthouses, cemeteries, belfries, and their own chapels and neoclassical estates, they created encompassing cultural landscapes. Later generations used museums, archives, historian collaborators, photography, and modern print to elevate family achievement to the status of heroic national narratives. Sagas of the monied and entrepreneurial, nationalist imperatives to protect a vulnerable people, and skepticism about the lasting power of great families and historical institutions have relegated the influence of the Taschereaus and McCords to obscurity. Patrician Families and the Making of Quebec resuscitates the central role these elite families played in English and French Quebec.--

Economy, polity, and society : British intellectual history, 1750-1950 by Stefan Collini( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economy, Polity, and Society and its companion volume History, Religion, and Culture bring together major new essays on British intellectual history by many of the leading scholars of the period, continuing a mode of enquiry for which Donald Winch and John Burrow have been widely celebrated. This volume addresses aspects of the eighteenth-century attempt, particularly in the work of Adam Smith, to come to grips with the nature of 'commercial society' and its distinctive notions of the self, of political liberty, and of economic progress. It then explores the adaptations of and responses to the Enlightenment legacy in the work of such early nineteenth-century figures as Jeremy Bentham, Tom Paine and Maria Edgeworth. Finally, in discussions which range up to the middle of the twentieth century, the volume examines particularly telling examples of the conflict between economic thinking and moral values
Une mort très digne : l'histoire du Cimetière Mont-Royal by Brian J Young( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une mort très digne est l'histoire sociale de la mort, de la sépulture et du cimetière Mont-Royal de Montréal. Lieu de grande beauté, le cimetière Mont-Royal a inspiré Henry Law Olmsted lors de la création du parc voisin du Mont-Royal et a joué un rôle notable dans le développement de Montréal. Brian Young démontre que l'histoire du cimetière Mont-Royal renvoie à l'évolution du tissu social, au changement des moeurs et aux événements tragiques dans ce qui a longtemps été la plus grande ville du Canada. Il examine les changements dans l'architecture, l'utilisation et l'aménagement paysager du cimetière et montre comment l'évolution du lieu de sépulture rural fondé par l'élite protestante de Montréal en un cimetière urbain a fait connaître les coutumes et sensibilités différentes des communautés juive, chinoise, grecque orthodoxe, bouddhiste et autres à Montréal
History, religion, and culture : British intellectual history, 1750-1950 by Stefan Collini( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in History, Religion and Culture begin with discussions of eighteenth-century historiography, especially Gibbon's Decline and Fall; they then take up different aspects of the place of religion in nineteenth-century cultural and political life, such as attitudes toward the native religions of India, the Victorian perception of Oliver Cromwell, the role of the Quarterly Review and the religious sensibility of John Ruskin; and finally, in discussions that range up to the middle of the twentieth century, they explore relations between scientific ideas about change or development and assumptions about the nature and growth of the national community
