Modernist cultures ( file )
in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"Modernist Cultures seeks to open modernism up to new kinds of inquiry, new subjects, and new arguments, and to examine the interdisciplinary and international contexts of modernism and modernity. The journal is committed to innovative scholarship and to dialogue across international borders, and intended as a genuinely interdisciplinary space for the lively, polemical discussion of contemporary trends in the field, a discussion that will, we hope, represent a range of critical approaches and foster debate between scholars working within different intellectual traditions. Modernist Cultures invites essays from various fields of inquiry, including anthropology, art history, cultural studies, ethnography, film studies, history, literature, musicology, philosophy, sociology, urban studies, and visual culture, in an attempt to reanimate the discourses through which modernism's diverse cultures have hitherto been conceived."

The settler and the savage : a tale of peace and war in South Africa by R. M Ballantyne( Book )
2 editions published in 1877 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
Ruyter quietly told the savage that he would then have to take the consequences, and urged, in addition, that it was folly to suppose the Kafirs were in a condition to make war on the white men just then. It was barely a year since they had been totally routed and driven across the Great Fish River with great slaughter. No warrior of common sense would think of renewing hostilities at such a time--their young men slain, their resources exhausted. [Publit]

Walking with James Hogg : the Ettrick shepherd's journeys through Scotland by Bruce Gilkison( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
James Hogg, also known as the 'Ettrick Shepherd', was a writer, poet, sportsman, musician and larger-than-life personality. In 1802, uneducated and still unknown, he set out on the first of a series of journeys through Scotland, from the Borders to the Highlands and Hebrides. The journeys were inspiring, life-changing and often frightening. They led him to a life of chaos, failures, fame, fun and literary masterpieces. Now, a descendant follows his footsteps and reflects on his experiences, and on the remarkable rediscovery of Hogg's works a century after his death. It is a story of tenacity, of daring to be different and, against all odds, success and a flourishing legacy. It is a lively look at an extraordinary life and some of his works, including Confessions of a Justified Sinner, considered by many to be one of the greatest novels ever written. Bruce Gilkison, a New Zealander and a great-great-grandson of Hogg's, walked through Scotland to discover what was special about him and his journeys. Like Hogg, he had no idea where these travels might lead. He found a world of stunning landscapes, fairies and mystery, genius and ambiguity, friendships and back-stabbings, and learnt about his flawed, lovable and eccentric ancestor
