History

The study of history has sometimes been classified as part of the humanities and at other times as part of the social sciences. It can also be seen as a bridge between those two broad areas, incorporating methodologies from both. Some individual historians strongly support one or the other classification. In the 20th century, French historian Fernand Braudel revolutionized the study of history, by using such outside disciplines as economics, anthropology, and geography in the study of global history.

...<b>Memoirs of General W.T. Sherman  </b><br>, (Library of America) Sherman, William Tecumseh

New York: Library of America, 1990.

 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
Hailed as prophet of modern war and condemned as a harbinger of modern barbarism, William Tecumseh Sherman is the most controversial general of the American Civil War.

“War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it,” he wrote in fury to the Confederate mayor of Atlanta, and his memoir is filled with dozens of such wartime exchanges. With the propulsive energy and intelligence that marked his campaigns,

This complex self-portrait of an innovative and relentless American warrior provides firsthand accounts of the war’s crucial events—Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, the Atlanta campaign, the marches through Georgia and the Carolinas.

The history of the American rebellion against England, written by one of America's preeminent eighteenth-century historians, differs from many views of the Revolution. It is not colored by excessive worship of the Founding Fathers but, instead, permeated by sympathy for all those involved in the conflict.

Clearly the best one-volume history of the Revolution written so far. -- Jack P. Greene, Professor of History, John Hopkins University

 Hardcover in Jacket,
 
No flaws or blemishes but minimal retail handling, still gift quality. Bindings square and tight, clean text.

The French Revolution of 1789, sparked off an extraordinary explosion of political, economic and social agitation, the effects of which are still felt today in all parts of the world. German philosophers, French politicians, Russian aristocrats, poets and working-men of varying nationalities and origins were caught up in this ferment; but its two towering figures were Marx and Engels, the archangels of the international Socialist movement.

The great German poet, Heine, called them "Doctors of the Revolution", and this term is used to include other unique and passionate fighters for social justice and equality who are described here: firebrands like Bakunin, Herzen, Hess, Lassalle and many more.

This book explores the complex ties that bound these characters to one another throughout their lives in relationships covering the whole gamut from admiration to animosity, manipulation and violent clashes. <

>This is an account of these apostles of the rival creeds of Communism, Socialism, Anarchism, Russian Populism, Bolshevism as well as Zionism, whose conflicts and triumphs have dominated our own ideology-ridden century.

14 Barnard, F. M. ...Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics: Themes and Voices of Modernity (McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas)
Canada: Mcgill Queens Univ Press, 2007. 0773531297 / 9780773531291 First Edition. Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality
F.M. Barnard goes beyond the seventeenth-century understanding of the social contract by making national self-enactment contingent on public reasons for individual liberty within civic mutuality.
He examines the possibilities and limits for a self-enacting, principled politics, acknowledging reason and self-enactment as central concepts of historical and political thinking. He argues, however, that reason must be seen as practical reason, which only indirectly acts as a cause, while self-enactment must be understood as operating in relation to reciprocity with the other. Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics also offers a reappraisal of basic political principles and constructs.
Barnard argues for bridging differences among a plurality of truths and forming practical judgments through cultivation of a sense of situational appropriateness.
