Building the kingdom : a history of Mormons in America by Claudia L Bushman( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mormonism is one of the world's fastest growing religions, doubling its membership every 15 years. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the formal denomination of the Mormon church) is now 10 million strong, with more than half of its membership coming from outside the United States. More than 88 million copies of The Book of Mormon have been printed, and it has been translated into more than 50 languages. Mormons in America tells the tumultuous story of this religious group, from its humble origins in small-town New York State in 1830 to its present heyday. Claudia and Richard Bushman introduce us to charismatic leaders like Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, go deep behind Mormon rites and traditions, take us along the adventurous trail of the Mormon pioneers into the West, evoke the momentous erection of Salt Lake City in the desert, and draw us into the dozens of skirmishes, verbal attacks, and court battles between Mormons and their neighbors, other religions, the media, and the American government

In old Virginia : slavery, farming, and society in the journal of John Walker by Claudia L Bushman( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walker's journal describes the legal cases he tenaciously pursued, records devotion to the local Methodist church, and explains his practice of Thomsonian medicine on slaves and family members alike. He provides insight into women's work and lays out the drama of blacks and whites living in close intimacy and constant fear. Walker humbly referred to himself as "a poor illiterate worm," but his diary dramatically captures the life of a small planter in antebellum Virginia."--Jacket

Federal financial incentives to induce early experience producing unconventional liquid fuels by Frank A Camm( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The government, as a principal, may seek to induce a private investor, as an agent, to build and operate an unconventional-oil production plant to promote early production experience with such plants. Given this goal, facing significant uncertainty about the future, the government wants to limit the cost to the public treasury of doing this. This report offers an analytic way to design and assess packages of policy instruments that the government can use to achieve its goal. It starts with general principles of the economic theories of contracting and agency. Looking across many alternative futures helps the authors design incentive packages that are robust from a private perspective and limit costs to the government. As these principles would predict, cash-flow analysis demonstrates the cost-effectiveness of using investment incentives rather than operating incentives and the powerful effect that a higher debt share has on the private rate of return. Cash-flow analysis also reveals specific opportunities that the government has to change course among policy alternatives as it seeks the lowest-cost way to increase the private rate of return associated with a project
Pansy's history : the autobiography of Margaret E.P. Gordon, 1866-1966 by Margaret Elizabeth Schutt Gordon( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margaret "Pansy" Gordon's life covered a remarkable span of years and territory. She lived one century, and the years took her from England to residences in British Columbia, Salt Lake City, and an Ojibway village on Georgian Bay; back to Utah and then Canada to homes at the shore of Bear Lake, on an Alberta farm, and in a prairie town; and to Los Angeles for the last decades of her life. She had gone to British Columbia as the daughter of an Anglican missionary to the Tsimshian Indians. She lived in Los Angeles as a Mormon missionary assigned to work as a genealogist. Her personal j
Going to Boston : Harriet Robinson's journey to new womanhood by Harriet Jane Hanson Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One nineteenth-century woman's journey in a changing Boston: As a poet, author, and keen observer of life in 1870s Boston, Harriet Robinson played an essential--if occasionally underappreciated--role in the women's suffrage movement during Boston's golden age. Robinson flourished after leaving behind her humble roots in the mill town of Lowell, Massachusetts, deciding to spend a year in Boston discovering the culture and politics of America's Athens. An honest, bright, and perceptive witness, she meets with Emerson and Julia Ward Howe, with whom she organizes the New England Women's Club, and drinks deeply of the city's artistic and cultural offerings. Noted historian Claudia L. Bushman proves a wonderful guide as she weaves together Robinson's journal entries, her own learned commentary, and selections from other nineteenth-century writers to reveal the impact of the Industrial Revolution and the rise of women's suffrage as seen through the experience of one articulate, engaged participant. Going to Boston will appeal to readers interested in both the history of Boston and the history of American progress itself; 'With observations as astute and as lively as those of her subject, Claudia Bushman shows us how Harriet Robinson, former mill-girl and aspiring middle-class housewife, became an activist for women's rights. Interspersing her own interpretations with vibrant selections from Robinson's diary, Bushman demonstrates that engagement in the cause was transformative even though the ultimate goal--votes for women--remained elusive'--Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, Harvard University; 'A sharp-eyed woman steps out of this book, a woman who filled her journal with vignettes of everyone from Emerson and aging abolitionists to up-and-coming reformers agitating for women's rights. A writer and reformer herself, Harriet Robinson becomes an insightful guide to Boston in 1870 ... A gem of a book'--David D. Hall, Harvard University; 'A richly rewarding encounter with a conventional middle-class wife and mother in the postbellum period as she gains a growing devotion to the cause of women's suffrage. You'll feel almost as though she were a personal friend'--Armand L. Mauss, Washington State University"--Publisher description
