The Battle of Adwa African victory in the age of empire by Raymond Anthony Jonas ( )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Main description: In March 1896 a well-disciplined and massive Ethiopian army did the unthinkable-it routed an invading Italian force and brought Italy's war of conquest in Africa to an end. In an age of relentless European expansion, Ethiopia had successfully defended its independence and cast doubt upon an unshakable certainty of the age-that sooner or later all Africans would fall under the rule of Europeans. This event opened a breach that would lead, in the aftermath of world war fifty years later, to the continent's painful struggle for freedom from colonial rule.Raymond Jonas offers the first comprehensive account of this singular episode in modern world history. The narrative is peopled by the ambitious and vain, the creative and the coarse, across Africa, Europe, and the Americas-personalities like Menelik, a biblically inspired provincial monarch who consolidated Ethiopia's throne; Taytu, his quick-witted and aggressive wife; and the Swiss engineer Alfred Ilg, the emperor's close advisor. The Ethiopians' brilliant gamesmanship and savvy public relations campaign helped roll back the Europeanization of Africa.Figures throughout the African diaspora immediately grasped the significance of Adwa, Menelik, and an independent Ethiopia. Writing deftly from a transnational perspective, Jonas puts Adwa in the context of manifest destiny and Jim Crow, signaling a challenge to the very concept of white dominance. By reopening seemingly settled questions of race and empire, the Battle of Adwa was thus a harbinger of the global, unsettled century about to unfold
The tragic tale of Claire Ferchaud and the Great War by Raymond Anthony Jonas ( )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the moving and improbable story of Claire Ferchaud, a young French shepherdess who had visions of Jesus and gained national fame at the height of World War I as a modern-day Joan of Arc. From her modest origins to her spectacular ascent, Claire's life and times are deftly related with literary verve and insight in a book that gives a rare view of the French countryside during the Great War. Claire experienced her first vision of Jesus after a childhood trauma in which her mother locked her in a closet to break her stubborn willfulness. She developed her visionary gifts with the aid of
Industry and politics in rural France : peasants of the Isère, 1870-1914 by Raymond Anthony Jonas ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
French socialism in the nineteenth century was confined largely to its Parisian adherents, but the process of industrialization in rural France began to create opportunities for socialists to expand their movement after the fall of the Paris Commune in 1871. In this book Raymond A. Jonas offers a study of socialist success by focusing on one department in southeastern rural France, the Isere, where the silk industry converted peasants into workers and brought a thriving and dynamic local economy to towns, villages, and hamlets. Analyzing peasant society and public opinion through a close study of rural household formation and through systematic use of press reports and electoral returns, Jonas explores in detail the consequences of the development of rural industry for politics, work, population movement, public opinion, and gender relations. He argues that work in dozens of the new textile mills gave thousands of women a public profile in rural society that a patriarchal peasant society would not otherwise have afforded them. Men stayed on the farms, and women departed for the mills. Jonas shows how women's wages arrested the rural exodus because they subsidized peasant farming and gave women a powerful lever with which to reshape household relations and village society. At first their efforts were tentative - the weapons of the weak. But by the first decade of the twentieth century, they had learned how to influence public debate. Their presence "feminized" the public realm; the textile villages were the mirror images of such "masculinized" places as garrison towns and port cities - profoundly gendered places

The birth of mankind : otherwise named, The woman's book : newly set forth, corrected, and augmented : whose contents ye may read in the table of the book, and most plainly in the prologue by Eucharius Rösslin ( Book )
5 editions published between 1552 and 1634 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between 1540 and 1654, The Byrth of Mankynde was a huge conunercial success. Offering information on fertility, pregnancy, birth, and infant care, and written in a chatty, colloquial style, it influenced most other literary works of the period bearing on sex, reproduction, and childcare. Until now, this important text has been unavailable except for a microfilm of the 1654 edition. For this new annotated edition of the 1560 version, Elaine Hobby has modernized the spelling and included informative notes. In her critical introduction, she not only traces the development of the book from its German origins, but also shows how early-modern ideas about the reproductive process combined ancient, medieval, and contemporary conceptions. Combining editorial rigour with a concern for the needs of the informed non-specialist, Hobby has made available a text that will be useful to scholars and students in a range of academic disciplines, including literature, history, and women's studies."--BOOK JACKET
