London Labour and the London Poor: The Condition And Earnings Of Those That Will Work, Cannot Work, And Will Not Work, Volume 3

by Henry Mayhew Victor Neuburg

London Labour and the London Poor originated in a series of newspaper articles written by the great journalist Henry Mayhew between 1849 and 1850. A dozen years later, it had grown into the fullest picture we have of labouring people in the world's greatest city in the nineteenth century: a four volume account of the hopes, customs, grievances and habits of the working-classes that allows them to tell their own stories. Combining practicality with compassion, Mayhew worked unencumbered by political theory and strove solely to report on the lives of the London poor, their occupations and trades. This selection shows how well he succeeded. From costermongers to ex-convicts, from chimney-sweeps to vagrants, the underprivileged of London are uniquely brought to life - their plight expressed through a startling blend of first person accounts, Mayhew's perceptions, and sharp statistics.

Netsukes (Routledge Revivals)

by Albert Brockhous

First published in 1924, no book had ever before emerged dealing with Netsukes, one of the most fascinating and interesting forms of expression of the Japanese in art. Netsukes are the exquisitely carved and infinitely varied little knobs used by the Japanese to keep from slipping all kinds of articles which are hung from girdles. For collectors who cannot afford originals in most of the arts, Netsukes offer an alluring field. Here is a branch in which originals are accessible. The Netsuke is a work of art that can only exist once in this world. It is found in Japan only and like the leaves of the trees, there are never two pieces of it alike. This book describes, in a fascinating way, whether you are a collector or the subject is new to you, the use and various kinds of Netsukes, the method of their carving, their subjects, the many extant collections, their history and their mythology.

The Civilization of Greece in the Bronze Age: The Rhind Lectures 1923 (Routledge Revivals)

by H.R. Hall

First published in 1928, this volume contains six sequential lectures delivered by H.R. Hall in 1923 detailing the archaeological remains of Bronze Age Greece.

Each of the author’s lectures was strictly chronological, with the main feature of each period being described in order. The profuse illustrations recreated here were fundamental to his view, with each Age defined through its art, pottery and stone carvings. These printed lectures follow their spoken counterparts closely and are brought to life with 320 illustrations inserted in places which reflect the original performances.

Some Aspects of Japan and Her Defence Forces (Routledge Revivals)

by M.D. Cpt. Kennedy

First published in 1928, this collection of previously published articles entered the fray of rising tensions between Japan and Anglophone countries such as Britain, Australia and America. Japanese expansion into China had led to fortification of Britain’s Sembawang Naval Base in Singapore and Pearl Harbour in America as deterrents against the increasingly ambitious Japanese Empire. ‘The bogey of Japanese militarism’ had become ever more feared, in what the author felt was a deplorable lack of understanding about Japan and its affairs. Highlighting parallels between Japan sixty years prior and China in the present, the author began with an exploration of the effect of Far Eastern and Pacific affairs on the Anglo-Japanese alliance which, for twenty years, had formed the basis of Japan’s national defence policy. He then proceeded with an exploration of Japan’s attitudes towards contemporary issues such as armament reduction, America’s immigration laws, Britain’s Singapore base, the Chinese situation and Soviet activities in Manchuria with the hope of maintaining peace in the Far East and the Pacific.

Understanding Human Nature (PDF)

by Alfred Adler

1927 English Edition. Adler provides a practical understanding of how childhood shapes adult life, which in turn might benefit society as a whole. Unlike the culturally elitist Freud, Adler believed that the work of understanding should not be the preserve of psychologists alone, but a vital undertaking for everyone to pursue, given the bad consequences of ignorance. This approach to psychology was unusually democratic for psychoanalytic circles. It is a work that anyone can read and understand.

Anthropology and Modern Life (Routledge Revivals)

by Franz Boas

Anthropology and Modern Life, first published in 1929, addresses itself to an immensely broad field with clarity, introducing anthropology as a unique and coherent discipline, and demonstrating its importance in the understanding of socio-cultural change throughout history. The author covers varied and diverse areas of study: ethnicity, including a lengthy discussion of the concepts of ‘race’ and ‘nationality’; criminology, and the importance of hereditary and environmental factors in producing criminals; education, and the associated issues of gender, class, and what would now be called ‘brainwashing’; and also the comparison between ‘modern’ and ‘primitive’ cultures, taking note of the development of socio-political institutions such as marriage and property.

Tellings and Texts: Music, Literature And Performance In North India

by Francesca Orsini Katherine Butler Schofield

Examining materials from early modern and contemporary North India and Pakistan, Tellings and Texts brings together seventeen first-rate papers on the relations between written and oral texts, their performance, and the musical traditions these performances have entailed. The contributions from some of the best scholars in the field cover a wide range of literary genres and social and cultural contexts across the region. The texts and practices are contextualized in relation to the broader social and political background in which they emerged, showing how religious affiliations, caste dynamics and political concerns played a role in shaping social identities as well as aesthetic sensibilities. By doing so this book sheds light into theoretical issues of more general significance, such as textual versus oral norms; the features of oral performance and improvisation; the role of the text in performance; the aesthetics and social dimension of performance; the significance of space in performance history and important considerations on repertoires of story-telling. The book also contains links to audio files of some of the works discussed in the text. Tellings and Texts is essential reading for anyone with an interest in South Asian culture and, more generally, in the theory and practice of oral literature, performance and story-telling.

Jews in Britain (Shire Library #734)

by Richard Goldstein Michael Leventhal

This book tells the epic thousand-year story of Britain's Jewish community, the country's oldest minority group, replete with the dark episodes of persecution and expulsion, but also with positive periods of acceptance and toleration. Some Jews came as wealthy traders, others as desperate refugees; some had to lead secret lives, and others in different times stood shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the nation against threats to the British way of life, which included the Nazis. The impact of Jewish culture on daily life – on language, on food, on religion, art and business – has been inestimable, and this book is a fully illustrated introduction and fitting tribute.

Celtic Myth and Legend

by Charles Squire

The legends of ancient Britain retain a profound allure for readers around the world, assuring a warm reception for this introduction to the colorful pageant of Celtic myth. Its wondrous tales range from the oft-told deeds of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to the less-familiar adventures of the mighty Finn and his Fenians, Ulster's Champions of the Red Branch, and other figures from the Gaelic pantheon. Tracing the exploits of kings and saints back to their earliest origins, the author reveals the pagan roots beneath the medieval Christianity and follows the stories' transformations into the fairy tales of the Victorian age. Minimal use of scholarly notes and a highly accessible style make this reader-friendly volume an ideal steppingstone in the path toward the magic cauldron of Celtic myth.
