Historical romances : the prince and the pauper ; A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court ; Personal recollections of Joan of Arc by Mark Twain( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prince and the pauper: When young Edward VI of England and Tom Canty, a poor boy who looks just like him, exchange places, each learns a valuable lesson about the other's very different station in life in sixteenth-century England. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court: A blow to the head transports a Yankee to 528 A.D. where he proceeds to modernize King Arthur's kingdom by organizing a school system, constructing telephone lines, and inventing the printing press. Personal recollections of Joan of Arc: Twain's most ambitious work is a fictional translation of Sieur Louis de Conte's memoirs, the one person who was with Joan during the three important stages of her life: as a visionary village peasant, as a military genius and as the defendant at her trial
God's arbiters : Americans and the Philippines, 1898-1902 by Susan K Harris( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the U.S. liberated the Philippines from Spanish rule in 1898, the exploit was hailed at home as a great moral victory, an instance of Uncle Sam freeing an oppressed country from colonial tyranny. The next move, however, was hotly contested: should the U.S. annex the archipelago? The disputants did agree on one point: that the United States was divinely appointed to bring democracy--and with it, white Protestant culture--to the rest of the world. They were, in the words of U.S. Senator Albert Beveridge, "God's arbiters," a civilizing force with a righteous role to play on the wor

The courtship of Olivia Langdon and Mark Twain by Susan K Harris( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Passionate readers both, Olivia Langdon and Mark Twain courted through books, spelling out their expectations through literary references as they corresponded during their frequent separations. Their letters reveal Olivia Langdon not as a Victorian prude, as many twentieth-century critics have portrayed her, but as a thoughtful intellectual, widely read in literature, history, and modern science. Not surprisingly, the letters show Twain as a critic, a suitor who lampooned Langdon's interests even while he sought to win her love. While Langdon's letters show her carefully considering her culture's array of possible role models, Twain's exhibit his conservatism about women's nature and roles. At the same time, they show him resisting many of his culture's basic assumptions. Working with Langdon's own letters and diaries as well as Twain's, Harris traces the complexities of Langdon and Twain's courtship within their larger contexts, showing how they negotiated their relationship through the mediums of literature, material culture, and the dynamics of the extended family."--Jacket

The cultural work of the late nineteenth-century hostess : Annie Adams Fields and Mary Gladstone Drew by Susan K Harris( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cultural Work of the Late Nineteenth-Century Hostess explores the influence well-placed, energetic women had on literary and political culture in the U.S. and in England in the years 1870-1920. Fields, an American, was first married to James T. Fields, a prominent Boston publisher; after his death she became companion to Sarah Orne Jewett, one of the foremost New England writers. Gladstone was a daughter of William Gladstone, one of Great Britain's most famous Prime Ministers. Both became well known as hostesses, entertaining the leading figures of their day; both also kept journals and wrote letters in which they recorded those figures' conversations. Susan K. Harris reads these records to exhibit the impact such women had on the cultural life of their times. The Cultural Work of the Late Nineteenth-Century Hostess shows how Fields and Gladstone negotiated alliances, won over key figures to their parties' designs, and fought to develop major cultural institutions ranging from the Organization of Boston Charities to London's Royal College of Music
A New-England tale by Catharine Maria Sedgwick( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this New England variation on the Cinderella plot, the orphan Jane Elton fights to preserve her honesty and her dignity in a household where religion is much talked about but little practiced. Through Jane, A New-England Tale (1822) celebrates the evolution of the American subject, situating the heroine among a cast of characters who embody various shadings of moral, religious, and civic virtues and vices. Among the virtuous are the affectionate servant Mary Hull, a pious Methodist, and Mr. Lloyd, a kind Quaker; among the vicious are her aunt, a repressive Calvinist, and her cousins, deceitful, dishonest, and dangerous. Ultimately, A New-England Tale is about the connection between parenting and governing, and the key role women play in shaping a fledgling nation."--BOOK JACKET

Settlement pattern and lithic tool technology changes during the Mesolithic of southwest Germany by Susan K Harris( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surface sites can provide a much broader view of settlement patterns as well as give a more accurate view of the number of sites present for specific time periods. However, currently there are few available methods for dating surface assemblages beyond listing artifacts diagnostic for a particular time period. In many cases diagnostics are not available or do not accurately represent the time periods present at a site. These problems with the available data and current methods for dating surface sites make it impossible at present to determine if a population decline did occur
