Roots of modern Mormonism by Mark P Leone( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Leone comes to new conclusions about the evolution of Mormonism, both as a self-sufficient religious sect and as a movement within the broader context of American history. Applying the tools of anthropology for the first time to this subject, he identifies the features that have allowed an outcast utopia of the nineteenth century to achieve worldwide success in the twentieth. The author explores the ways in which a minority survives in a hostile environment, both physical and cultural. He focuses especially on the Mormon settlements of eastern Arizona, whose rich records reveal in microcosm the workings of a modern theocracy. The early Mormon radicalism emerges as an appropriate response to contemporary conditions. With the shift of Mormonism from independence to colonial status at the turn of the century, Mormon ideas begin their transformation to conservatism, again illustrating the flexibility that is a key to the religion's stunning success. Leone's broad range of sources, including diaries, native histories, judicial records, and correspondence, gives a full picture of Mormon life and history. He has also done extensive ethnographic field work in the Mormon settlements along the Little Colorado River, so as to be able to describe the movement in its own terms

The archaeology of liberty in an American capital : excavations in Annapolis by Mark P Leone( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What do archaeological excavations in Annapolis, Maryland reveal about daily life in the city's history? Considering artifacts such as landscapes, printer's type, ceramics, and spirit bundles, this study illuminates the lives of the city's residents - walking, reading, talking, eating, and living together in both freedom and oppression for more than three hundred years. Interpreting the results of one of the most innovative large-scale and long-range projects in contemporary American archaeology, The Archaeology of Liberty in an American Capital speaks powerfully to the struggle for liberty, particularly among African Americans and the poor." "Leone uses material excavated from several dozen sites in and around Annapolis to show what historical archaeology can tell us about the past and present of this key city in American history. We learn how slavery and racism coexisted with freedom and how deepening poverty coexisted with wealth amassed in ever fewer hands. We come to understand how a steep hierarchy of wealth before the American Revolution produced an independent America with that hierarchy intact afterwards, but with the wealthy even more powerful than before. This study of power uses the archaeological record to connect social conditions in the eighteenth century to their results in the twenty-first."--Jacket
Historical archaeologies of capitalism by Mark P Leone( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new edition of 'Historical archaeologies of capitalism' shows where the study of capitalism leads archaeologists, scholars and activists. Essays cover a range of geographic, colonial, and racist contexts around the Atlantic basin: Latin America and the Caribbean, North America, the North Atlantic, Europe, and Africa. Here historical archaeologists use current capitalist theory to show the results of creating social classes, employing racism, and beginning and expanding the global processes of resource exploitation. Scholars in this volume also do not avoid the present condition of people, discussing the lasting effects of capitalism’s methods, resistance to them, their archaeology, and their point to us now.0Chapters interpret capitalism in the past, the processes that make capitalist expansion possible, and the worldwide sale and reduction of people. Authors discuss how to record and interpret these. This book continues a global historical archaeology, one that is engaged with other disciplines, peoples, and suppressed political and economic histories. Authors in this volume describe how new identities are created, reshaped, and made to appear natural.0Chapters in this second edition also continue to address why historical archaeologists study capitalism and the relevance of this work, expanding on one of the important contributions of historical archaeologies of capitalism: critical archaeology."--Publisher's website
Critical historical archaeology by Mark P Leone( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we use the past to make sense of the issues and problems that concern us in the present? Mark Leone, the leading critical theorist in historical archaeology, urges archaeologists to view their discipline as an activist pursuit. This volume is partly his autobiographical reflection on a thirty five year career, part a collection of Leone's classic writings on Annapolis, Williamsburg, Shakertown, St. Mary's, and other key sites, and part a synthesis of his current thinking on how historical archaeology can engage the cultural and political issues of our time. Critical Historical Archaeology is an important summary of the work and thinking of one of our most thoughtful, influential archaeologists. --Book Jacket
Atlantic crossings in the wake of Frederick Douglass : archaeology, literature, and spatial culture by Mark P Leone( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlantic Crossings in the Wake of Frederick Douglass takes its bearings from the Maryland-born former slave Frederick Douglass's 1845 sojourn in Ireland and Britain--a voyage that is understood in editors Mark P. Leone and Lee M. Jenkins' collection as paradigmatic of the crossings between American, African American, and Irish historical experience and culture with which the collection as a whole is concerned. In crossing the Atlantic, Douglass also completed his journey from slavery to freedom, and from political and cultural marginality into subjective and creative autonomy. Atlantic Crossings traces the stages of that journey in chapters on literature, archaeology, and spatial culture that consider both roots and routes--landscapes of New World slavery, subordination, and state-sponsored surveillance, and narratives of resistance, liberation, and intercultural exchange generated by transatlantic connectivities and the transnational transfer of ideas

Optimizing ML with run-time code generation by Mark P Leone( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We describe the design and implementation of a compiler that automatically translates ordinary programs written in a subset of ML into code that generates native code at run time. Run-time code generation can make use of values and invariants that cannot be exploited at compile time, yielding code that is superior to statically optimal code. But the cost of optimizing and generating code at run time can be prohibitive. We demonstrate how compile-time specialization can reduce the cost of run-time code generation by an order of magnitude without greatly affecting code quality. Several benchmark programs are examined, which exhibit an average cost of six cycles per instruction generated at run time."
Deferred compilation : the automation of run-time code generation by Mark P Leone( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper describes deferred compilation, an alternative and complement to compile-time program analysis and optimization. By deferring aspects of compilation to run time, exact information about programs can be exploited, leading to greater opportunities for code improvement. This is in contrast to the use of static analyses, which are inherently conservative. Deferred compilation automates the translation of ordinary programs into native machine code that performs fast optimization and native-code generation at run time
