In the rotunda of the nation´s Capital a statue pays homage to three famous 19th-century American women suffragists: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucretia Mott. ´´Historically´´, the inscription beneath the marble statue notes, ´´these three stand unique and peerless.´´ In fact, the statue has a glaring omission: Lucy Stone. A pivotal leader in the fight for both abolition and gender equality, her achievements marked the beginning of the women´s rights movement and helped to lay the groundwork for the eventual winning of women´s suffrage. Yet, today most Americans have never heard of Lucy Stone. Sally McMillen sets out to address this significant historical oversight in this engaging biography. Exploring her extraordinary life and the role she played in crafting a more just society, McMillen restores Lucy Stone to her rightful place at the center of the 19th-century women´s rights movement. Raised in a middle-class Massachusetts farm family, Stone became convinced at an early age that education was key to women´s independence and selfhood, and went on to attend the Oberlin Collegiate Institute. When she graduated in 1847 as one of the first women in the US to earn a college degree, she was drawn into the public sector as an activist and quickly became one of the most famous orators of her day. Lecturing on anti-slavery and women´s rights, she was instrumental in organizing and speaking at several annual national woman´s rights conventions throughout the 1850s. She played a critical role in the organization and leadership of the American Equal Rights Association during the Civil War, and, in 1869, cofounded the American Woman Suffrage Association, one of two national women´s rights organizations that fought for women´s right to vote. 1.

In the quiet town of Seneca Falls, New York, over the course of two days in July 1848, a small group of women and men, led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, held a convention that would launch the woman´s rights movement and change the course of history. The implications of that remarkable convention would be felt around the world - and indeed are still being felt today. In Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Woman´s Rights Movement, the latest contribution to Oxford´s acclaimed Pivotal Moments in American History series, Sally McMillen unpacks, for the first time, the full significance of that revolutionary convention and the enormous changes it produced. The book covers 50 years of women´s activism, from 1840 to 1890, focusing on four extraordinary figures: Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, and Susan B. Anthony. McMillen tells the stories of their lives, how they came to take up the cause of women´s rights, the astonishing advances they made during their lifetimes, and the lasting and transformative effects of the work they did. At the convention, they asserted full equality with men, argued for greater legal rights, greater professional and education opportunities, and the right to vote - ideas considered wildly radical at the time. Indeed, looking back at the convention two years later, Anthony called it ´´the grandest and greatest reform of all time - and destined to be thus regarded by the future historian.´´ In this lively and warmly written study, Sally McMillen may well be the future historian Anthony was hoping to find. A vibrant portrait of a major turning point in American women´s history, and in human history, this book is essential for anyone wishing to fully understand the origins of the woman´s rights movement.The ´´Pivotal Moments in American History” series seeks to unite the old and the new history, combining the insights and techniques of recent historiography with the power of 1.

Befestigungsanlagen zwischen Havel un Oder in H...
17,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Anhand archäologischer, bauhistorischer, kartographischer und historischer Quellen wird ein Katalog von 225 Befestigungen in sechs Typen vorgelegt. Die Beziehungen deutscher Burgen zu slawischen Anlagen werden ebenso betrachtet wie die Kontinuität mittelalterlicher Höfe zu jüngeren adligen Wohnhöfen oder dörfliche und bäuerliche Befestigungen. In der ersten Phase der Ostsiedlung spielten Burgen der Askanier und Wettiner, die von ca. 1150-1200 slawische Niederungsburgen [Typ 1] übernahmen, die Hauptrolle. In der zweiten Stufe ab 1200 entstanden Burgen mit hohem Ausbaugrad [2], häufig auf Anhöhen, die im 13. Jh. in Stein oder später Ziegel ausgebaut wurden. Kleine Befestigungen [3] finden sich nach 1200 v. a. im östlichen [Turmhügelburgen] und südöstlichen [Viereckwälle] Barnim. Der häufig erwähnte, aber selten nachweisbare Typ 4 [befestigte Höfe] ist z. B. durch repräsentative Plankenzäune und Fachwerktürme greifbar. Dorfbefestigungen [5] markierten mit Palisade, Wall und Graben den Rechtsbereich und schützen vor Raubtieren und dem Entlaufen von Nutztieren. Im Spätmittelalter entstanden Landwehren [6], [Wall-Hecken]Graben-Hecken, die Raubzüge bei Fehden behinderten. On the basis of archaeological, architectural, cartographical, and historical evidence a catalogue of 225 fortifications of six types has been compiled. The relations of German castles to Slavic strongholds are considered, as are the continuity from Medieval farmsteads to later mansions of the gentry, village fortifications, and rural strongholds. In the initial phase of eastward expansion, the castles of the houses of Ascania and Wettin, who took over Slavic lowland forts [type 1] from ca. A.D. 1150-1200, played the leading part. In the 2nd phase after 1200 highly elaborate castles were built, mainly on hilltops [2], and changed into stone or later brick in the 13th century. Small fortifications [3] concentrated in the eastern [motte type] and south-eastern Barnim region [square earthworks] after A.D. 1200. The frequently mentioned but rarely documented type 4 [fortified farmsteads] is attested e. g. by representative plank fences and timber framed towers. Village fortifications [5] of palisade, bank, and ditch designated juridical spheres, protected against predators, and prevented cattle going astray. In the Late Middle Ages linear earthworks [6] of ditch and hedge [+/- bank] hindered raids in the context of feuds.

From the author´s first glimpse of a magical recording studio in the mid-1960s up through a busy career that continues to the present day, this rollicking story can only be told by those that were there. As the young tape operator on sessions for the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Joe Cocker at the famed Olympic Sound Studios in London, Phill learned the ropes from experienced engineers and producers such as Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer. Phill soon worked his way up engineering sessions for Mott the Hoople, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and many other legendary rockers. He eventually became a freelance engineer/producer and worked with Roxy Music, Go West, Talk Talk, and Robert Plant. But more than a recollection of participating in some of the most treasured music of the past 40 years, this is a man´s journey through life as Phill struggles to balance his home and family with a job where drug abuse, chaos, rampant egos, greed, lies and the increasingly invasive record business take their toll. It´s also a cautionary tale, where long workdays and what once seemed like harmless indulgences become health risks, yet eventually offer a time to reflect back on. 1. Language: English.
