NELSON'S YANKEE CAPTAIN: The Life of Boston Loyalist Sir Benjamin Hallowell

Год издания: 2009
Страниц: 416
Sir Benjamin Hallowell, one of Admiral Horatio Nelson's famous "Band of Brothers," served a lifetime in the navy of Great Britain through the American and French Revolutions between 1775 and 1815. His drama filled life was profoundly shaped by the currents of history, with strong connections with Canada and the United States through his Boston-bred, staunchly Loyalist family. Bryan Elson's thoroughly researched biography illuminates Hallowell's career and his personal life during these history-shaping events. Through Hallowell's eyes, readers will witness key events in British imperial history during this dramatic period when Britain was able to gain ascendancy over its arch-rival France to "rule the waves."

In this book, I am describing a happy year that I spent at Hope House, New Orleans, helping needy people and, as such, also the community.

I also found a renewed love for New Orleans, a city that had formed my life for the past 43 years.

Looking Back

Initially, the book discusses how it was researched, formed, and collaborated on. It then gives some history of Russia, the Czars, and the contemporary relationship between Russia and the United States. It also provides some background on the effects of the Russian Revolution, and how it literally revolutionized even the Cyrillic alphabet and spelling. Then we meet Isadore Weiss, the author of the manuscript, "Looking Back", the centerpiece around which the book is formed. Isadore gives a unique personal view and descriptive account of World War One and the Russian Revolution from a child's perspective. The child, Isadore Weiss provides fascinating insights into the economics, living conditions, and religious practices of the Jewish community of Minkovitz in the Ukraine. The reader also gets a rare insight of the community's reaction to the first cars, trains, and airplanes ever seen by people in that region. Contrary to popular thought, we also see the excellent relationship...

Charles Dickens (Authors in Context) (Oxford World's Classics)

The Authors in Context series, a subseries of the Oxford World's Classics series, examines the work of major authors in relation to their own times and to the present day. Combining history with lively literary discussion, each volume provides comprehensive insight into texts in their context. Charles Dickens was both a representative Victorian and an artist who is quintessentially a "Post-Romantic." He was the most popular author of his age and the one who most vividly reflected the contradictory impulses of Victorian society, its energy and invention as much as its social and political anomalies. This book explores Dickens's interest in the urban phenomenon, which so marks nineteenth-century culture, and it looks at the vital interconnection between his life and his art. Like his character, David Copperfield, Dickens lived his life and pursued his career "thoroughly in earnest," but he was also a great comic writer whose work resonates well beyond his own age and continues to...

Lawyers, Leaders and Litigants: Biographical Essays

This is a book of biographical essays on lawyers and other individuals whose careers intertwined with law, public policy and politics. This collection of essays may especially appeal to many readers who may be daunted by huge biographical tomes, and who thereby welcome shorter works that convey much of the essence and flavor of prominent personalities and their careers. People covered include: William Beveridge (founder of the welfare state); Tommy Corcoran & Ben Cohen (key aides to FDR); Dwight Eisenhower; Felix Frankfurter; Averell Harriman; Pat Moynihan; Belle Moskowitz (key aide to Al Smith); Kenny O'Donnell (key aide to JFK); Bayard Rustin (key aide to Martin Luther King); Adlai Stevenson; Joe Tumulty (key aide to Woodrow Wilson); the Wright Brothers; and others.
