Reflecting the best recent scholarship of Early America and the Early Republic, the articles in this collection study the many dimensions of American political history. The authors explore Native American interests and encounters with settlers, diplomatic endeavors, environmental issues, legal debates and practiced law, women's citizenship and rights, servitude and slavery and popular political activity. The geographical perspective is as expansive as the topical, with strong representation of trans-Atlantic and continental interests of many nations and peoples. The international and interdisciplinary perspectives illustrate the dynamic transformations of America during this era of settlement, conquest, development, revolution and nation building.

A Divinity for All Persuasions uncovers the religious signifiance of early America's most ubiquitous popular genre. Other than a Bible and perhaps a few schoolbooks and sermons, almanacs were the only printed items most Americans owned before 1820. Purchased annually, the almanac was a calendar and astrologically-based medical handbook surrounded by poetry, essays, anecdotes, and a variety of practical information. Employing a wealth of archival material, T.J. Tomlin analyzes the pan-Protestant sensibility distributed through the almanac's pages between 1730 and 1820. By disseminating a collection of Protestant concepts regarding God's existence, divine revelation, the human condition, and the afterlife, almanacs played an unparalleled role in early American religious life. Influenced by readers' opinions and printers' pragmatism, the religious content of everyday print supports an innovative interpretation of early American cultural and religious history. In sharp contrast to a historiography centered on intra-Protestant competition, Tomlin shows that most early Americans relied on a handful of Protestant "essentials" rather than denominational specifics to define and organize their religious lives.

Deutschland nach der Revolution von 1848 - repressive Regierungen, soziale Unsicherheit und zerschlagene Traume. Die Zahl der deutschen Auswanderer in die Vereinigten Staaten steigt jahrlich an. Unter ihnen viele namhafte Vorstande und Mitglieder der sogenannten freien und deutschkatholischen Gemeinden - einer religiosen und politischen Oppositionsbewegung -, die in den USA einen neuen Wirkungskreis aufbauen. Ihre Ideen pragen nicht nur das Sozial- und Schulwesen der Deutschen, sondern tragen entscheidend zum Aufbau einer deutsch-amerikanischen Kultur bei. Das vorliegende Buch untersucht die Ideologie der deutschen Bewegung der freien Gemeinden und Freidenker Vereine in den Vereinigten Staaten anhand des Freidenker-Almanachs, einem Jahrbuch, dass von 1878 bis 1901 von fuehrenden Mitgliedern der Bewegung gestaltet wurde und Schluesseltexte zu religiosen, sozialen, politischen und literarischen Vorstellungen enthalt. Neben einer erstmaligen Zusammenfassung der Geschichte der deutschen freien Gemeinden in den USA und der Analyse der Texte im Almanach, enthalt die Arbeit einen umfangreichen bio-bibliografischen Uberblick ueber alle Autoren, in dem zahlreiche deutsch-amerikanische Literaten zum ersten Mal Erwahnung finden. "Das groae Verdienst des Werkes liegt in der breit basierten, gewissenhaften Aufarbeitung des Stoffes, die so ueberzeugend gelungen ist, dass man hier getrost von [einer] definitiven Studie a sprechen kann." Das Historisch-Politische Buch.

Généralement traitées dans un cadre national, les lectures populaires sont ici abordées dans un espace lame, celui des échanges entre l'Europe et l'Amérique. Pour répondre à la lancinante question du contenu des lectures du peuple, on a choisi d'examiner en priorité l'évolution des almanachs de grande diffusion publiés entre le XVIe et le XXe siècle. Vecteur privilégié de l'information, de la vulgarisation des connaissances, de l'hygiène, de la médecine, mais aussi de la farce et de la superstition, de la fiction comme des prédictions les plus fantaisistes, l'almanach est toujours présent en Amérique du Sud et en Europe en 2003. Objet de lamentations des élites qui le méprisaient ou de l'admiration de ceux qu'étonnaient sa longévité, sa capacité à s'adapter aux us et coutumes les plus variés, l'almanach est au cœur de cette plongée dans l'univers des objets de large consommation. Promenant le lecteur de son aire de naissance, l'Europe de l'Ouest, jusque dans les deux Amériques, ce volume se veut une contribution aux travaux qui placent la culture populaire, les représentations ou les systèmes de croyances des hommes de toutes conditions au centre de leurs interrogations. En ce sens, il devrait trouver tout naturellement sa place dans cette histoire culturelle en plein renouvellement depuis une dizaine d'années.

Ci sono motel, grattacieli, diner, drive-in, fast food, ponti, parchi, battelli a vapore. Ci sono metropoli, ghetti, piccole città e città fantasma. Ci sono treni, taxi gialli e aquile solitarie. Ci sono orsi, orsetti, trote e alligatori. Ci sono toffolette, apple pie, hamburger e hot dog, ziti e zeppole. Ci sono cowboy, telepredicatori, wobblies e flappers, quaccheri e mormoni. Ci sono Peanuts, Simpson, Barbie, nerd, supereroi e ufo. Ci sono i re Elvis e Michael, Charlie Parker, Dolly Parton e Billie Holiday. Ci sono Hollywood e Broadway, Dallas e E.R., Walker Evans e Edward Hopper, Dean Moriarty, Huck Finn, Gatsby, Achab e Rossella. E poi femministe tenaci, capi tribù, intellettuali radical, esploratori coraggiosi, scienziati visionari... Ma anche ammutinamenti di schiavi, massacri di indiani, battaglie coloniali, guerre sanguinose, lotte operaie, movimenti di protesta, scandali politici, armi, stragi, catastrofi ambientali. L’avete riconosciuta? È l’America che avete sognato nei film, letto nei romanzi, ascoltato nel rock e nel blues, amato di un amore totale oppure odiato senza riserve: l’avete vista, fotografata, perduta, ritrovata. È l’America delle grandi città, certo, ma anche delle isole, dei luoghi isolati e sperduti, delle «cinture» della Bibbia e del cotone, delle aree postindustriali e postminerarie. È l’America dei deserti e del Mississippi, delle praterie e della Silicon Valley, della Route 66 e di Roswell, delle frontiere di ieri e di oggi. Ma poi, che cos’è l’«America»? Da che parte sta? A queste domande cerca di rispondere «Americana», dizionario atipico di più di trecento voci a stelle e strisce. Non per tracciare un’impossibile cartografia definitiva degli Stati Uniti, non per «dire tutto» sull’America, ma per cogliere e interpretare l’affascinante, e a volte disturbante, complessità di un paese-mondo, attraverso storie note e meno note, singolari ed emblematiche, reali e mitiche.

True or False? Benjamin Banneker used a telescope and mathematics to predict a solar eclipse. True! In 1789, Banneker calculated when the moon would pass between the earth and sun. And he did it without any formal math or science training. As a young boy, he worked on the farm owned by his father, who was a freed slave in Maryland. He helped to survey and plot out the site for the U.S. capital city, Washington, D.C. He also published several almanacs that helped farmers, merchants, and sailors predict the weather and know the dates of holidays and festivals.

In the fall of 1965 the Israeli newspaper Haaretz sent a young journalist named Elie Wiesel to the Soviet Union to report on the lives of Jews trapped behind the Iron Curtain. “I would approach Jews who had never been placed in the Soviet show window by Soviet authorities,” wrote Wiesel. “They alone, in their anonymity, could describe the conditions under which they live; they alone could tell whether the reports I had heard were true or false—and whether their children and their grandchildren, despite everything, still wish to remain Jews. From them I would learn what we must do to help . . . or if they want our help at all.” What he discovered astonished him: Jewish men and women, young and old, in Moscow, Kiev, Leningrad, Vilna, Minsk, and Tbilisi, completely cut off from the outside world, overcoming their fear of the ever-present KGB to ask Wiesel about the lives of Jews in America, in Western Europe, and, most of all, in Israel. They have scant knowledge of Jewish history or current events; they celebrate Jewish holidays at considerable risk and with only the vaguest ideas of what these days commemorate. “Most of them come [to synagogue] not to pray,” Wiesel writes, “but out of a desire to identify with the Jewish people—about whom they know next to nothing.” Wiesel promises to bring the stories of these people to the outside world. And in the home of one dissident, he is given a gift—a Russian-language translation of Night, published illegally by the underground. “‘My God,’ I thought, ‘this man risked arrest and prison just to make my writing available to people here!’ I embraced him with tears in my eyes.” From the Trade Paperback edition.
