Joseph II by Derek Edward Dawson Beales( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emperor Joseph II (1741-90) tried to carry through something like a 'revolution from above' in the vast, varied, and mainly backward provinces of the Austrian Monarchy. Until now, no full-scale and reliable study of his life and work has been written. Professor Beales's book attempts to fill that gap. This first volume carries the story down to 1780. It describes the claustrophobic atmosphere, in which Joseph was trained to rule, his tragic marriages, and his attempts after 1765 as co-regent with his formidable mother, empress Maria Theresa, to dictate the domestic and foreign policy of the Monarchy. The author shows that previous historians have been deceived by false sources and that the picture they have given of the emperor, his strange character, his tempestuous relationship with his mother, and his political aims, needs drastic revision

Europa 1750. Die katholischen Klöster erleben eine bespiellose Hochblüte. 25.000 Ordenshäusen und 350.000 Mönchen und Nonnen prägen als Lehrer, Gelehrte, Priester, Missionare, Grundbesitzer, Bauherren und fürstliche Berater das gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Leben in Deutschland und Österreich, in Frankreich, in Spanien und Portugal. Viele von ihnen sind wohlhabend, wie die Benediktiner, die Zisterzienser, die Augustiner oder Kartäuser, manche bleiben Bettelorden . Im gesamten sind sie aber Grundbesitzer und Herren über Millionen Bauern, sie besitzen Höfe und Wälder, sie bauen Vorstädte auf, produzieren und verkaufen Bier, Wein und Schnaps und übernehmen die Aufgaben einer Bank. Aber sie verstrickten sich auch in religiöse, wirtschaftliche und politische Kontroversen, die im Zuge der Aufklärung und der Französischen Revolution zu ihrer Zerstörung führten. Das reich illustrierte Werk stützt sich auf unbekanntes Quellenmaterial, das den Text durch authentische Zitate und unterhaltsame Anekdoten belebt

History and biography : essays in honour of Derek Beales by T. C. W Blanning( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too long, too many historians have been too much concerned with impersonal forces, underlying structures and long term developments. Now, 'people' are back. In a post modern age it is easier to appreciate the decisive role played by individuals, as they ride their luck and seize their opportunity to bend the world to their will. As these essays by twelve eminent historians demonstrate, biography is too important to be left to the amateurs. Among the rich variety of strong characters analysed here are an Austrian emperor, a German kaiser, a Victorian prime minister, an Italian dictator, and an American president

History and biography : an inaugural lecture by Derek Edward Dawson Beales( Book )

7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans tend to think of the Revolution as a Massachusetts-based event orchestrated by Virginians, but in fact the war took place mostly in the Middle Colonies--in New York and New Jersey and the parts of Pennsylvania that on a clear day you can almost see from the Empire State Building. In My American Revolution, Robert Sullivan delves into this first Middle America, digging for a glorious, heroic part of the past in the urban, suburban, and sometimes even rural landscape of today. And there are great adventures along the way: Sullivan investigates the true history of the crossing of the Delaware, its down-home reenactment each year for the past half a century, and--toward the end of a personal odyssey that involves camping in New Jersey backyards, hiking through lost "mountains," and eventually some physical therapy--he evacuates illegally from Brooklyn to Manhattan by handmade boat. He recounts a Brooklyn historian's failed attempt to memorialize a colonial Maryland regiment; a tattoo artist's more successful use of a colonial submarine, which resulted in his 2007 arrest by the New York City police and the FBI; and the life of Philip Freneau, the first (and not great) poet of American independence, who died in a swamp in the snow. Last but not least, along New York harbor, Sullivan re-creates an ancient signal beacon. Like an almanac, My American Revolution moves through the calendar of American independence, considering the weather and the tides, the harbor and the estuary and the yearly return of the stars as salient factors in the war for independence. In this fiercely individual and often hilarious journey to make our revolution his, he shows us how alive our own history is, right under our noses."--Publisher's website
