Содержание:
A Traveler's Guide to Railroad 1869 will show you ''What to See'' and ''How to Find It'', from the railroads first tunnels and bridges and the rusted remnants of those short lived ''hell-on-wheels'' town to the construction camps. A companion to Railroad 1869, Along the Historic Union Pacific, this is for those curious travelers who want to ''explore'' the locations that figured prominently during the construction years of the Union Pacific Railroad. You will find suggestions about What to see along the railroad's 1094 miles from Omaha to Promontory through Nebraska, Wyoming and Utah. With the many detailed maps and driving instructions you will discover How to find it. Many of the historic locations have become active modern towns; at other locations there are only the rusted remnants of historic ''hell-on-wheels'' ghost towns. All locations evoke a tremendous appreciation of those challenging historic times.

Permutation Groups (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

Permutation Groups (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

Permutation Groups form one of the oldest parts of group theory. Through the ubiquity of group actions and the concrete representations which they afford, both finite and infinite permutation groups arise in many parts of mathematics and continue to be a lively topic of research in their own right. The book begins with the basic ideas, standard constructions and important examples in the theory of permutation groups.It then develops the combinatorial and group theoretic structure of primitive groups leading to the proof of the pivotal O'Nan-Scott Theorem which links finite primitive groups with finite simple groups. Special topics covered include the Mathieu groups, multiply transitive groups, and recent work on the subgroups of the infinite symmetric groups. This text can serve as an introduction to permutation groups in a course at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level, or for self- study. It includes many exercises and detailed references to the current literature.
Death or Liberty: African Americans and Revolutionary America

Death or Liberty: African Americans and Revolutionary America

In Death or Liberty, Douglas R. Egerton offers a sweeping chronicle of African American history stretching from Britain's 1763 victory in the Seven Years' War to the election of slaveholder Thomas Jefferson as president in 1800. While American slavery is usually identified with the cotton plantations, Egerton shows that on the eve of the Revolution it encompassed everything from wading in the South Carolina rice fields to carting goods around Manhattan to serving the households of Boston's elite. More important, he recaptures the drama of slaves, freed blacks, and white reformers fighting to make the young nation fulfill its republican slogans. Although this struggle often unfolded in the corridors of power, Egerton pays special attention to what black Americans did for themselves in these decades, and his narrative brims with compelling portraits of forgotten figures such as Quok Walker, a Massachusetts runaway who took his master to court and thereby helped end slavery in that...

The Voyage of the Beagle - A Naturalist's Voyage Round the World

The Voyage of the Beagle is a title commonly given to the book written by Charles Darwin published in 1839 as his Journal and Remarks, which brought him considerable fame and respect. The title refers to the second survey expedition of the ship HMS Beagle, which set sail from Plymouth Sound on 27 December 1831 under the command of captain Robert FitzRoy. While the expedition was originally planned to last two years, it lasted almost five-the Beagle did not return until 2 October 1836. Darwin spent most of this time exploring on land (three years and three months on land; 18 months at sea).
Reclaiming Catherine of Siena: Literacy, Literature, and the Signs of Others

Reclaiming Catherine of Siena: Literacy, Literature, and the Signs of Others

Catherine of Siena (1347–1380) wrote almost four hundred epistles in her lifetime, effectively insinuating herself into the literary, political, and theological debates of her day. At the same time, as the daughter of a Sienese dyer, Catherine had no formal education, and her accomplishments were considered miracles rather than the work of her own hand. As a result, she has been largely excluded from accounts of the development of European humanism and the language and literature of Italy. Reclaiming Catherine of Siena makes the case for considering Catherine alongside literary giants such as Dante and Petrarch, as it underscores Catherine's commitment to using the vernacular to manifest Christ's message—and her own.Jane Tylus charts here the contested struggles of scholars over the centuries to situate Catherine in the history of Italian culture in early modernity. But she mainly focuses on Catherine’s works, calling attention to the interplay between orality and textuality in the...
