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 )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 398 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 wor

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

Previous work on the Mesolithic of southern Germany has revealed a sharp decline in the number of sites known from the Early to the Late Mesolithic. The apparent decrease in site numbers may indicate a population decline, or alternatively, an adaptive change in settlement patterns that is less visible archaeologically. Current understandings of the Mesolithic in southern Germany rely heavily upon information provided by a few excavated sites, mostly in caves or on lake shores. This reliance upon only excavated sites has created a large bias in the way archaeologists view the Mesolithic. The lack of regional survey for much of southwest Germany has contributed greatly to this problem
