Between the ancients and the moderns Baroque culture in Restoration England by Joseph M Levine ( )
12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The quarrel between the ancients and the moderns was an old dispute when it was resumed with special ferocity in the later seventeenth century as writers and artists, their friends and patrons, debated how far to risk the freedom to innovate. In this book Joseph M. Levine argues that it was this tension that gave unity to the cultural life of the period and helped define its baroque character. He also asserts that, contrary to public opinion, neither side won - even as modern superiority was being proclaimed in philosophy and the sciences, the precedence of the ancients was being reaffirmed in literature and the arts."--BOOK JACKET

The autonomy of history : truth and method from Erasmus to Gibbon by Joseph M Levine ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In these learned essays, Joseph M. Levine shows how the idea and method of modern history began to develop during the Renaissance, when a clear distinction between history and fiction was first proposed and defended both in practice and in theory. The dependence of history on rhetoric and theology dissolved as history gradually won its autonomy. He offers a number of case histories to show that by the end of the eighteenth century, recourse to "matter of fact" became pervasive, and the new claims for history were met by skepticism in a debate that still echoes today."--BOOK JACKET

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joe DiMaggio was more than the most complete all-around player of his generation, more than an icon: he was the one and only Joe DiMaggio. He burst onto the scene in 1936, helping the Yankees to win 10 pennants and 9 Series. When he retired in 1951, he had a lifetime average of .325, and two home run crowns--after serving three years in the military during World War II. Combining historic photographs, newsreel footage, and film clips with reminiscences by former teammates, journalists, chance acquaintances and biographers, this film presents a look at the life of an enduring symbol of baseball greatness, a living symbol of excellence, elegance, power, and gentleness

The honorable burden of public office: the rise of English civic humanism in the sixteenth century by Jeffrey M Anderson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Arguing against current historiography, I contend that humanism remained viable in England throughout the sixteenth century in the form of civic humanism. I expose the interaction between humanist education and political, cultural, and intellectual life. I trace the connection between English humanism and practical politics in the lives and careers of six eminent Elizabethans, who received an almost exclusively classical education at Cambridge University for the explicit purpose of public service. This education imbued them with the same goals and aspirations, above all new ideals of citizenship, which guided their public and private conduct. It set them on a common project in practical affairs (diplomacy, economic affairs, domestic matters, and educational policies, for instance) which their humanism helped to shape. My goal is to demonstrate both the humanist connection behind their undertaking and the significance of this movement for our understanding of Elizabethan political and cultural life
