Republic of debtors : bankruptcy in the age of American independence by Bruce H Mann( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

".. Examines changing attitudes towards insolvency and their importance to the economy and self-image of the early American republic. Mann, a professor of law and history at the University of Pennsylvania, shows how debtor-relief movements like Shay's Rebellion, a post-Revolution wave of business failures and the need to pay off the public Revolutionary War debt made the problem of debt central to the politics of the new Republic, while the growth of consumer and credit markets enmeshed ever greater portions of the public in debt. A complex imagery of manhood, honor and dependency surrounded the perception of debt in the public mind, while debtors began to invoke the Rights of Man as an argument against debtors' prison. The result, Mann argues, is that by the end of the 18th century insolvency increasingly came to be viewed as economic misfortune rather than moral failure-but only for some. Bankruptcy laws were written to shield wealthy commercial debtors, while broke farmers and workers continued to face prison. Mann examines the political, class and regional antagonisms surrounding the issues of debt and bankruptcy, and draws on newspapers, popular literature and profiles of individual debtors to evoke the complex emotions aroused by debt ..."--Publishers Weekly

Neighbors and strangers : law and community in early Connecticut by Bruce H Mann( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book I have written ... is a study of legal change and community from the middle of the seventeenth century to the eve of the Revolution. In it, I have tried to accomplish two tasks---first, to identify how law and the ways people used it changed, and, second, to explain those changes in the context of other, often related, changes in economy and society. To these ends, the book melds legal history and social history and offers a rethinking of the relationship between law and society in, if not western civilization, at least early Connecticut"--Introduction, page 2

Three moments of an explosion : stories by China Miéville( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London awakes one morning to find itself besieged by a sky full of floating icebergs. Destroyed oil rigs, mysteriously reborn, clamber from the sea and onto the land, driven by an obscure but violent purpose. An anatomy student cuts open a cadaver to discover impossibly intricate designs carved into a corpse's bones-designs clearly present from birth, bearing mute testimony to ... what? Of such concepts and unforgettable images are made the twenty-eight stories in this collection-many published here for the first time. By turns speculative, satirical, and heart-wrenching, fresh in form and language, and featuring a cast of damaged yet hopeful seekers who come face-to-face with the deep weirdness of the world-and at times the deeper weirdness of themselves-
