Jewish fringes Texas fabric: Nineteenth-century Jewish merchants living Texas reality and myth by Marilyn Kay Cheatham Goldman( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many historians of American Jewish history focus their studies on the area spreading along the eastern coast of the United States and on large urban areas. Such emphasis leaves undocumented the experience of American Jews who settled in the South, the West or in small towns. This work begins to fill that gap by focusing on the Jewish entrepreneurs who made their way to the frontier of Anglo-European society while settling in Texas

Strangers for family : gifts, reciprocity, and kinship in Caddoan-Euroamerican relations, 1685-1835 by David L La Vere( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prior to regular contact with Europeans, the Caddoans created a complex, hierarchical, and highly organized society which participated in a far-flung trade with other native peoples. As they came into contact with other Indians, the Caddoans' kin-ordered mode of production allowed them to incorporate these strangers and their goods into Caddoan society. In their lands in what became Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma, the Caddoans often adopted foreign ideas, tools, and goods and then adapted them to Caddoan ways. With the coming of the French and Spanish after 1685, Caddoan society found itself under tremendous pressures, such as a dependency on manufactured goods and population loss from disease and increased warfare. The Caddoans found that their kin-ordered mode of production worked equally as well with Europeans. For successful diplomacy and trade, Europeans found they had to work within this Caddoan system in which gift-exchange established fictive and affinal kinships. From these kinships, the Caddoans expected the Europeans to uphold a host of reciprocal obligations, such provide loyalty, advice, protection, and of course, more gifts of valuable manufactured goods. As long as the Europeans needed these native peoples as military allies and as trade partners who provided hides and horses for their mercantilist empires, the Caddoans could remain politically and economically independent. Still, loss of land as well as population decreases from disease and warfare forced alterations in Caddoan society. Despite these changes, the Caddoans continually chose traditionally Caddoan ways to deal with them. Though Caddoan communities coalesced, they maintained their class, lineage, and leadership systems. Only with the coming of United States and the advent of agricultural capitalism did the Caddoans find themselves losing their political and economic independence. Rather than hides, Americans desired Caddoan land, so they pushed them off the land. In 1835, the United States government forced the Caddoans to cede their land in Louisiana and move west
Over a barrel : government influence and mergers and acquisitions in the petroleum industry : the case of Sun Oil Company, 1938- 1980 by William Preston Powers( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the nature of government business relations, as perceived by the owners and managers of the Sun Oil Company, a large integrated oil and gas producer, transporter, refiner, and marketer. Sun has had a long and profitable career in the oil industry, success which came despite a complex, often bitter relationship with government in its regulatory and antitrust capacity. The founding Pew family has historically been quite outspoken in its opposition to what they perceived to be the government's chronic, unwelcome intrusion into the affairs of business. Sun's almost one hundred year history can be readily divided into two distinct phases. The first, the period from 1938-1947, could best be characterized as the time when Sun Company officials fought bitterly against what they thought to be excessive government domination over their industry, fearing either the government's outright takeover, or its imposition of burdensome restrictions. After freeing themselves from the government's oppression, Sun management then set out to build a growing, profitable oil concern. From 1938 to the present, Sun has undertaken several transactions that have established the firm as a highly successful petroleum company, including a merger, an aborted takeover, and a successful acquisition. Sun's survival in an endeavor where many perish, either purchased or driven out, provides the focus of this dissertation

Politicians, the press and power : Lord Beaverbrook's introduction to British politics, 1910-1918 by Anne Airth-Kindree Kelsch( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lord Beaverbrook's political career followed an unorthodox path. Within months of emigrating from Canada to Britain, he became an M.P. and a consort of the Tory elite. His character and methods suited behind-the-scenes maneuvering. Historians have credited him with masterminding manipulations at several decisive junctures in British history: most notably Bonar Law's accession to the leadership of the Conservative Party in 1911 and the pulling together the men who toppled Asquith from power in 1916. The primary objective of this research is to determine Lord Beaverbrook's appropriate place in the history of Britain during the years 1910-1918 which encapsulate a revolutionary phase in Beaverbrook's life. In those eight years Max Aitken evolved from an upstart colonial financier to a notable Conservative politico and, ultimately, a notorious press baron. This dissertation is the first work to seriously consider Beaverbrook's role as a constructive politician. As such it reveals much about the nature of Edwardian politics and about the Conservative Party's attempts to adapt to the demands of a changing electorate
