Susanah Shaw Romney locates the foundations of the early modern Dutch empire in interpersonal transactions among women and men. As West India Company ships began sailing westward in the early seventeenth century, soldiers, sailors, and settlers drew on kin and social relationships to function within an Atlantic economy and the nascent colony of New Netherland.
In the greater Hudson Valley, Dutch newcomers, Native American residents, and enslaved Africans wove a series of intimate networks that reached from the West India Company slave house on Manhattan, to the Haudenosaunee longhouses along the Mohawk River, to the inns and alleys of maritime Amsterdam. Using vivid stories culled from Dutch-language archives, Romney brings to the fore the essential role of women in forming and securing these relationships, and she reveals how a dense web of these intimate networks created imperial structures from the ground up. These structures were equally dependent on male and female labor and rested on small- and large-scale economic exchanges between people from all backgrounds. This work pioneers a new understanding of the development of early modern empire as arising out of personal ties.
It sounds like the plot to a steamy soap opera or an episode of E True Hollywood Story-By night a gigolo and stripper to politicians and very wealthy and well-known clientele, surrounded by fame, sex, drugs, and obscene amounts of money; by day, a heartbroken father embattled in a bitter custody battle with a former lover which eventually leads to his arrest. Overcoming his demons, he finds God, becomes a respected writer and musician traveling the country performing his one man show to sold out audiences and sharing his tumultuous story with thousands.
El objeto de esta monografía es ayudar a ampliar el conocimiento sobre el tardofranquismo, un periodo clave para comprender la historia reciente de España. Para ello recurrimos a una fuente tan útil como infravalorada: la información publicada en los medios de comunicación extranjeros sobre los cambios políticos y sociales operados en nuestro país durante aquellos años. El presente libro analiza la cobertura informativa ofrecida por The New York Times, una de las cabeceras más emblemáticas de la prensa escrita norteamericana y todo un referente a nivel mundial. A través del estudio de sus editoriales, sus artículos de opinión y las crónicas enviadas por los corresponsales desplazados en nuestro país, seremos capaces de reconstruir la imagen que España proyectaba hacia el exterior y, sobre todo, percibir cuál era la opinión del periódico estadounidense acerca del progresivo cambio político que comenzaba su andadura durante los últimos años de la dictadura franquista.
The New York Times has called Carl Dennis's poetry "wise, original, and deeply moving." A poet with a growing audience of admirers, Dennis writes in a clear, classically simple language that is both personal and universal. Making use of a rich variety of genres--advice, meditation, elegy, and prophecy--his poems take unexpected turns as they explore their subjects, catching the reader off balance in a way that is liberating. This new anthology gathers the best of his eight previous books along with a generous sampling of new poems.
