British North America in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries

British North America in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 13/10/2016

Until relatively recently, the connection between British imperial history and the history of early America was taken for granted. In recent times, however, early American historiography has begun to suffer from a loss of coherent definition as competing manifestos demand various reorderings of the subject in order to combine time periods and geographical areas in ways that would have previously seemed anomalous. It has also become common place to announce that the history of America is best accounted for in America itself in a three-way melee between settlers , the indigenous populations, and the forcibly transported African slaves and their creole descendants. The contributions to British North America in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries acknowledge the value of the historiographic work done under this new dispensation in the last two decades and incorporate its insights. However, the volume advocates a pluralistic approach to the subject generally, and attempts to demonstrate that the metropolitan power was of more than secondary importance to America in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The central theme of this volume is the question to what extent did it make a difference to those living in the colonies that made up British North America in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that they were part of an empire and that the empire in question was British? The contributors, some of the leading scholars in their respective fields, strive to answer this question in various social, political, religious, and historical contexts.

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/09/2009

The Premiership is not all glamour, particularly not now Stoke City - the ugly ducklings - are involved...In 2008, Stoke City managed to grind their way into the Promised Land of the Premiership. Under the uncompromising guidance of manager Tony Pulis, they were never going to be pretty to watch.

The Project MKULTRA Compendium: The CIA's Program of Research in Behavioral Modification

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/03/2009

In the 1950s and 1960s, the CIA undertook a series of research and operational programs aimed at gaining control of human behavior, commonly known as mind control. The most famous and notable of these was MKULTRA, which from 1953 to 1964 spawned 149 subprojects that developed and studied a number of procedures for influencing and predicting human behavior by chemical and psychological means. The intention for the techniques was to have both defensive applications ...and offensive applications (e.g. the use of psychochemicals to control or discredit an individual). The Project MKULTRA Compendium presents the results of investigations into these programs, offering views on the ethics and limits of medical research.

From Working Class Hero to Absolute Disgrace

From Working Class Hero to Absolute Disgrace

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/02/2009

When Stephen Foster departed for London from his hometown of Stoke, he was wearing an army surplus jacket accessorised with a CND badge, and he took with him a distinct set of attitude problems. It was the late Seventies; the south-east was on the brink of a social and economic boom - think Thatcher, Yuppies, Wham! and Essex Man. These were awful times for working-class heroes like Stephen, those who believed in Arthur Scargill, who listened to Dylan and Joy Division, and who reviled the Porsche 911. The south was a travesty. He would never fit in - he couldn't. Three decades later he had turned into the kind of poseur who had a recipe book with instructions for making Eton mess and Smoked aubergine puree lying on his ornamental butcher's block next to his six-burner range in his nice middle-class kitchen. How had this disastrous state of affairs come about? From Working Class Hero to Absolute Disgrace is a riveting cultural memoir, funny and touching in equal measure. It will transport you back to one of the great con eras - when we were encouraged to put gel in our hair, wear blazers with rolled-up sleeves and turn our back on our roots...

Walking Ollie Winning the Love of a Difficult Dog

Walking Ollie Winning the Love of a Difficult Dog

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/03/2007

One winter's afternoon, Stephen Foster walked into a dog re-homing centre with the intention of picking up a retired greyhound. Instead, he acquired an abandoned lurcher pup. Foster's knowledge of dogs was so vague that he had to look up 'lurcher' in key reference work The Giant Book of the Dog , to find out what sort of animal was coming to join the family. His research counted for little: the new arrival did not conform to any known breed standard, or indeed any standard whatsoever that might be considered dog-normal. Walking Ollie is a hilarious - and often heartrending - account of one man's attempt to turn a psychotic wild animal into something resembling a domestic pet.

Strides

Strides

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 05/08/2002

'Being in love with someone else's girlfriend should be of slightly more concern than the size of your trouser-band relative to your own actual girth . . . shouldn't it?' Philip Marlowe would never have played it this way. But then Philip Marlowe hadn't just stolen an ancient relic from the city museum. Philip Marlowe wasn't in love with a girl who had a boyfriend called Spurs. And Philip Marlowe never, ever gave a thought to the cut of his own trousers. Winger is doing his best to play it cool. He's avoiding job interviews, he's bonding with the cat, he's making a mean zabaglione. But how do you win over a girl you met by bringing her down in an offside tackle? And how do you convince her that you love her when all you can think about is trousers? Strides is a sharp and funny look at the hang-ups and self-deceptions of the modern male, from a writer whose work has been described as 'raw and vital' by the Independent on Sunday.

The Long Argument English Puritanism and the Shaping of New England Culture, 1570-1700

The Long Argument English Puritanism and the Shaping of New England Culture, 1570-1700

Author: Stephen Foster Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/03/1996

In this wide-ranging study Stephen Foster explores Puritanism in England and America from its roots in the Elizabethan era to the end of the seventeenth century. Focusing on Puritanism as a cultural and political phenomenon as well as a religious movement, Foster addresses parallel developments on both sides of the Atlantic and firmly embeds New England Puritanism within its English context. He provides not only an elaborate critque of current interpretations of Puritan ideology but also an original and insightful portrayal of its dynamism. According to Foster, Puritanism represented a loose and incomplete alliance of progressive Protestants, lay and clerical, aristocratic and humble, who never decided whether they were the vanguard or the remnant. Indeed, in Foster's analysis, changes in New England Puritanism after the first decades of settlement did not indicate secularization and decline but instead were part of a pattern of change, conflict, and accomodation that had begun in England. He views the Puritans' own claims of declension as partisan propositions in an internal controversy as old as the Puritan movement itself. The result of these stresses and adaptations, he argues, was continued vitality in American Puritanism during the second half of the seventeenth century. Foster draws insights from a broad range of souces in England and America, including sermons, diaries, spiritual autobiographies, and colony, town, and court records. Moreover, his presentation of the history of the English and American Puritan movements in tandem brings out the fatal flaws of the former as well as the modest but essential strengths of the latter. |Despite almost four centuries of black independent self-help enterprises, the agency of African Americans in attempting to forge their own economic liberation through business activities and entrepreneurship has remained noticeably absent from the historical record. Juliet Walker's award-winning book is the only source that provides a detailed study of the continuity, diversity, and multiplicity of independent self-help economic activities among African Americans. This new, updated edition divides the original work into two volumes. This first volume covers African American business history through the end of the Civil War and features the first comprehensive account of black business during the Civil War.
