23 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,878 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( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 393 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 world stage. Mining letters, speeches, textbooks, poems, political cartoons and other sources, Susan K. Harris examines the role of religious rhetoric and racial biases in the battle over annexation. She offers a provocative reading both of the debates' religious framework and of the evolution of Christian national identity within the U.S. The book brings to life the personalities who dominated the discussion, figures like the bellicose Beveridge and the segregationist Senator Benjamin Tillman. It also features voices from outside U.S. geopolitical boundaries that responded to the Americans' venture into global imperialism: among them England's "imperial" poet Rudyard Kipling, Nicaragua's poet/diplomat Ruben Dario, and the Philippines' revolutionary leaders Emilio Aguinaldo and Apolinario Mabini. At the center of this dramatis personae stands Mark Twain, an influential partisan who was, for many, the embodiment of America. Twain had supported the initial intervention but quickly changed his mind, arguing that the U.S. decision to annex the archipelago was a betrayal of the very principles the U.S. claimed to promote. Written with verve and animated by a wide range of archival research, God's Arbiters reveals the roots of current debates over textbook content, evangelical politics, and American exceptionalism-shining light on our own times as it recreates the culture surrounding America's global mission at the turn into the twentieth century. --Provided by publisher

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Early American Women Writers series offers rare works of fiction by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century women, each reprinted in its entirety, each with a foreword by General Editor Cathy N. Davidson, who places the novel in a historical and literary perspective. Written in 1822, A New-England Tale is the first of the many novels, tales, and short magazine pieces Catharine Sedgwick published during her lifetime. The story of an orphan girl in rural New England and the moral trials she faces as she grows up, this early example of the popular nineteenth-century women's novel provides a unique look at the religious and social climate at this crucial period in America's national development. Addressing many of the complex religious, political, and philosophical issues of the time, as well as concerns of the woman writer, A New-England Tale is a classic story of a young woman's moral and material triumphs

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 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An analysis of lithic debitage from well excavated assemblages within the project study area is used to evaluate differences between the Late Paleolithic, Early Mesolithic, and Late Mesolithic of southwest Germany. This data is then used to construct a classification model to date lithic assemblages. Seven test sites resulting from the Southwest German Regional Archaeological Survey Project are presented and classified to time period using the mode, which in turn reveals that analysis of diagnostic artifacts alone does not provide an accurate dating of surface assemblages. Only a thorough review of both diagnostic tools and debitage can accurately assign a potentially mixed surface assemblage to the correct time period or periods. With the inclusion of surface sites in our data base for the Mesolithic a more complete settlement pattern analysis will be possible that will answer the puzzle of site number decline in the Late Mesolithic
