Hufton, Olwen
This book brings together a mass of detailed and dispersed material on women in early modern Europe, as well as giving readers a new interpretation of the considerable study of women which has emerged over the list two decades. The author's range is ambitious and, unlike previous works in the field which isolate particular aspects of the lives of women or of the versions of woman, she considers the situation of all kinds of women, all aspects of their lives, across the whole of Western Europe, particularly England and France, and over three centuries. The book's approach is thematic with chapters on female rites of passage - girlhood marriage, married life as well as norms, sexuality, witches and saints. 654pp. N.B. Reading crease to spine. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Alston Jr., Alex A. And Dickerson, James L.
Recalling the state's shameful racist history of lynching, arson, denial of rights, false imprisonment, and other heinous crimes, this riveting narrative explores how Mississippi became a safe haven for the most violent and virulent racists, who were immune to prosecution for their crimes. This sanctuary of the then status quo emerged from the 1956 Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission's efforts to preserve segregation and 'Mississippi Values' by declaring the state outside the jurisdiction of the federal government. This title presents an analysis of the major crimes, the institutional collusion, delayed and never-delivered justice, and the state's attempts at atonement are interspersed with the authors' recollections of what they saw, heard, and experienced as whites - thus 'insiders' - during this troubled time. With commentary extending to the present day, this is both a well-researched history and an eyewitness record of living through an era of judicial, media, and economic terrorism directed against African Americans. 369pp.
