This book was published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1989. However, it is more than simply an exhibition catalogue, and in fact there isn't even a full listing in the book of the items that were on display. However, what this book does do is explore the changes of costume in France and America that occurred during the years of Napoleon's rule in France from 1789 to 1815.

The Renaissance: An Encyclopedia for Students (4 vol.set)
Charles Scribners Sons/Reference
2004
Format: PDF
Size: 39 Mb
Language: English

Charles Scribner’s Sons presents The Renaissance: An Encyclopedia for Students, a condensed version of ER written especially for students. Like ER, it covers people and events beginning in Italy about 1350, then broadens geographically to embrace the rest of Europe in the middle to late fifteenth century. The coverage ends around 1620, when Europe once again moved into a new age with different values and
events. Between these dates the encyclopedia discusses important political events, concepts, ideas, works of art and literature, and scientific achievements across Europe. It incorporates the most recent scholarship on these subjects. In particular, it addresses the three most important developments in the study of the Renaissance in the second half of the twentieth century: the numerous studies of humanism throughout Europe, the increased concentration on the social history of the Renaissance, and the study of the many roles of women. The Renaissance: An Encyclopedia for Students provides comprehensive discussions of all aspects of the European Renaissance. Coverage of the rest of the world is limited to how Europeans influenced other continents, and discussion of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations is limited to the way they affected the Renaissance and vice versa.

The Jews of Odessa: A Cultural History, 1794-1881
Stanford University Press
1991
Format: PDF
Size: 56 Mb
Language: English

Founded in 1794 as a frontier city on the Black Sea, Odessa soon grew to be one of Russia's busiest seaports. Settlers of all nationalities went there to seek their fortune, among them Jews who came to form one of the largest, wealthiest, and most culturally fertile Jewish communities in Europe. This history of Jewish Odessa traces the rise of that community from its foundation in 1794 to the pogroms of 1881 that erupted after the assassination of Alexander II. Zipperstein emphasizes Jewish acculturation: changes in behavior, attitude, and ideology as reflected in schools, synagogues, newspapers, and other institutions of the period. The patterns set then affected the community's cultural development well into the second decade of the twentieth century. More a modern metropolis than any other Russian city with a significant Jewish population, Odessa offers a window into the diversity of Russian Jewish experience.

John Pope's Army of Virginia, and a battle of much larger scale and numbers than the First Battle of Bull Run (First Manassas) fought in 1861 on the same ground.

The eyes of Europe are directed towards Russia, the European China, where the scion of the house of Romanov is seated on his tottering throne, frightened at the phantom of an approaching Revolution. Convulsively he is clinging to the throne of his ancestors, reluctant to give up what he considers his right. But has Nicholas II a right to the Russian throne? Yes, the right of the usurper! Michael Romanov was elected Tsar of Russia by the voice of the nation, but Peter I, his grandson, was the son of an unknown parent. The Tsar himself knew that he was not the son of Alexis, and one day he asked Count Yaguzhinsky to tell him whether he was his father. The Count, however, replied that it was difficult to say, as the Tsaritza had so many lovers. Elizabeth may or may not have been the daughter of Peter the Great. She was in any case the daughter of Catherine I, a former Livonian servant. The legitimacy of Paul I is doubtful, and if one is to believe the confessions of Catherine 11 he was not a Romanov. For nearly three centuries these so-called Romanovs have ruled over Russia, but they have remained strangers to the people under the sway of their sceptre.
