"Corn occupied an important place in the lives of many Native communities that lived along the Upper Missouri River. In this landmark book, George F. Will and George E. Hyde introduce readers to some fifty varieties of native corn discovered in the Missouri Valley. Equally important, they provide an indispensable overview of Indian agricultural techniques there, including methods of harvesting and storing the crop, the preparation of corn for food, and the role of the crop in intertribal and Indian-white trade. Corn was not only grown, traded, and eaten, it also had spiritual significance.

Stalin's railroad : Turksib and the building of socialism by Matthew J Payne( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Annotation. <div>The Turkestano-Siberian Railroad, or Turksib, was one of the great construction projects of the Soviet Union&rsquo;s First Five-Year Plan. As the major icon to ending the economic "backwardness" of the USSR&rsquo;s minority republics, it stood apart from similar efforts as one of the most potent metaphors for the creation of a unified socialist nation.<br /><br />Built between December 1926 and January 1931 by nearly 50,000 workers and at a cost of more 161 million rubles, Turksib embodied the Bolsheviks&rsquo; commitment to end ethnic inequality and promote cultural revolution in one the far-flung corners of the old Tsarist Empire, Kazakhstan. Trumpeted as the "forge of the Kazakh proletariat," the railroad was to create a native working class, bringing not only trains to the steppes, but also the Revolution.<br /><br />In the first in-depth study of this grand project, Matthew Payne explores the transformation of its builders in Turksib&rsquo;s crucible of class war, race riots, state purges, and the brutal struggle of everyday life. In the battle for the souls of the nation&rsquo;s engineers, as well as the racial and ethnic conflicts that swirled, far from Moscow, around Stalin&rsquo;s vast campaign of industrialization, he finds a microcosm of the early Soviet Union.</div>
The Past before us : contemporary historical writing in the United States by Michael G Kammen( file )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Is there a distinctive American style of historical scholarship? To what extent have quantitative methods and computer technology affected the writing of history?

The contributors, twenty-one distinguished historians, discuss the state of their profession today and describe their interests, activities, and problems. Reflecting new and exciting trends in historical research, their essays, taken together, provide a searching assessment of the major advances in historical methods as well as in historical knowledge during the 1970s"--Jacket
