The Huang-ti nei-ching : the structure of the compilation, the significance of the structure by David Joseph Keegan( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic (Huang-ti nei-ching) sk60 is the preeminent early text of Chinese medical theory. This dissertation analyzes the history and texts of the extant Nei ching editions in order to demonstrate that the Nei ching was a compilation of many small "primary texts" by many different authors. Some advanced various medical theories; others then expanded, modified and challenged these theories. The result was a debate on medical theory which evolved over time, revealing by its gradual compilation both the substance and ritual of medical teaching and transmission
The historical vision of Kung Tzu-chen (1792-1841) / by Judith Anne Whitbeck by Judith Anne Whitbeck( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation presents a study of the intellectual development of Kung Tzu-chen (1792-1841) as an historically-minded critic who perceived that the fortunes of the Ch'ing dynasty were declining. The social and intellectual context to which Kung was exposed as a child are revealed through an examination of his family background and his family's intellectual associations. Special attention is given to the relationship between Kung and his maternal grandfather, Tuan Tu-ts'ai (1735-1815). The second chapter examines the formation of Kung's identity as an ardent critic of his generation. The third chapter analyzes his early reform writings and historical theories within the specific context of Ch'ing intellectual history. The last chapter surveys the dual commitments of political criticism and classical learning that provided the dual foci of his adult life
The rise of medical practitioners in sixteenth-century France : the case of Lyon and Montpellier by Alison K Lingo( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the social aspirations and social mobility of the three legal medical practitioners in sixteenth century France, the physicians, apothecaries and surgeons--as revealed in their publications on specialized medical subjects and archival sources documenting their marriage patterns, wealth, jobs, and political activities. Specifically, the cities of Lyon and Montpellier were chosen to study because of their contrasting yet representative characteristics. Lyon, a progressive, expanding city with economic traditions that reinforced mobility was a center of medical publication although it had no university. Montpellier a conservative, tradition-bound city, did have a university and therefore was a center of medical education. These cities attracted medical practitioners both from the publishing elite and the more representative ordinary physicians, apothecaries, and surgeons who constituted the larger structure underlying this elite
English army finance and logistics 1642-1660 / by James Scott Wheeler by James Scott Wheeler( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English governments of the 1640's and 1650's depended upon two general types of revenues: regular and irregular. The regular revenues were the Customs, Excise and Assessment, and the irregular revenues were all other sources of money which, like Sequestrations and the proceeds from the sale of crown and church properties, were one-time in nature. This dissertation studies the development, efficiency and importance of the Customs, Excise, and Assessment in great depth during the years 1642 to 1660 and summarizes the financial productivity and importance of the irregular revenues. These analyses reveal that the regular revenues provided significantly more money for the Parliamentary cause and Interregnum governments than did the irregular revenues, although the latter were important. In addition, the regular revenues improved in yield over time
Religion and society in late Ming : sectarianism and popular thought in sixteenth and seventeenth century China by Richard Hon-Chun Shek( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peasant economy in early Japan, 650-950 by Dana Robert Morris( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peasants societies are distinguished by the social and economic autonomy of farmers, and by the physical and cultural separation of farmers from the ruling class. By these criteria, Japanese farmers had become a peasantry by the late seventh century. Social and economic autonomy was fostered by rice culture, which resists directed manorial cultivation. To a remarkable degree, the developing central government itself promoted the spread of rice culture through semicompulsory loans of seed, direction of rice field development, and the allotment of rice fields
Mathematics in the Enlightenment : a study of algebra, 1685-1800 / by Robin Elaine Rider by Robin E Rider( )

The mind of Frederick Douglass by Waldo E Martin( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Without a doubt, Frederick Douglass was the foremost Negro American of the nineteenth century. His life and thought represent a significant feature of nineteenth-century American social and intellectual history. The substance and development of Douglass' thought, in particular, pointedly illustrate the intrinsic interrelationship between the Afro-American and Euro-American intellectual traditions. As a thinker, Douglass embodied this inextricable connection. Most important, Douglass' mind vividly reflected the pervasive impact of race on nineteenth-century American thought and life. The central thrust of Douglass' thinking, consequently, was to resolve the deep-seated tension between his identities as a Negro and an American
Religious rites and riots : from community identity to communalism in North India, 1870-1940 by Sandria B Freitag( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Asians historically have possessed a variety of loyalties which combined to create their sense of identity. The process by which these multiple identities were tested, refined, defended and--to the degree possible--reconciled, is at the heart of the social history of the subcontinent. As a process it was particularly pronounced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and was dramatically enacted in the north Indian area, the United Provinces. The dynamics of the process moved Indians from recognition of competing group identities, through a sense of still amorphous but coalescing community identity, to a frame of mind now labeled "communal": a position in which a politicized religious identity claimed primary loyalty

Huasteca crude Indians, ecology, and labor in the Mexican oil industry, northern Veracruz, 1900-1938 by Myrna I Santiago( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1921, Mexico was the third largest oil producer in the world. The fields responsible for such prodigious wealth were concentrated in a northern Veracruz tropical forest named after its indigenous inhabitants, the Huasteca. The English and American entrepeneurs who extracted the region's fossil fuels, this work argues, also produced complex and contentious local social and environmental changes until they were expropriated in 1938. To illustrate those developments, this dissertation focuses on three actors overlooked in the historiography of Mexican oil: the most affected indigenous peoples (Huastecs and Totonacs), the oil workers, and the environment. The argument is that as the oil companies destroyed the tropical forest, they constructed a human ecology determined by class and nationality that led to the nationalization of the oil industry. In transforming the Huasteca and the port of Tampico into a gigantic oil field, the oilmen reconfigured local land ownership patterns, altered the landscape, organized a labor hierarchy that discriminated against Mexicans, and passed the environmental costs of oil production onto the Mexican work force

Nixon, Kissinger, and Allende a study of U.S. involvement in the 1973 Coup in Chile by Lubna Z Qureshi( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the years since his departure from Washington, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has denied any involvement in the 1973 overthrow of President Salvador Allende of Chile. At the same time, however, he seems to justify that involvement by arguing that Allende presented a grave threat to the physical security of the United States
