Der Journalist und Historiker Wilhelm Lauser (1836 – 1902) war einer der wenigen deutschen Augenzeugen des Aufstands der Pariser Kommune. Detailreich hielt er in seinem Tagebuch die Entwicklungen bis zur Niederschlagung der Kommune durch die konservative französische Regierung ab dem 21. Mai 1871 fest, die schließlich in einem Massaker an den Kommunarden mündete. Nachdruck der 1878 erschienenen Originalausgabe.
A biography of the woman who founded a commune, published a radical newspaper, spoke out against slavery and for women's rights 140 years ago.
According to Nichols, what Jesus said to do is the same thing that David the Psalmist said to do about 3,000 years ago: Be still and commune with your own heart. This is how we purify our heart; it is how we discover the truth that sets us free; it is how we find peace, joy and happiness--what everyone desires.
In the days leading up to the Franco-Prussian War of the late nineteenth century, the political and social climate of Paris shifted dramatically. English teenager Cuthbert Harrington has been stripped of his inheritance due to the malfeasance of his attorney and drifts toward Paris to pursue his education. Once there, he and a friend find themselves mired in very different circumstances than they had imagined.
Italy in the Middle Ages was unique among the countries of Europe in recreating, in a changed environment, the urban civilization of antiquity - the society, culture, and political formations of city-states. This book examines the origins and nature of this phenomenon from the fall of Rome to the eve of its consummation, the Italian Renaissance. The explanation is sought in Italy's singular `double existence' between two contrasted worlds - ancient and medieval. The ancient was characterised by the total predominance of the landed aristocracy in economy and society, enforced through a peculiar system of city states embracing town and country. The new medieval influences were marked by the separation of town, country and aristocracy, by the identification of towns with trade and a mercantile bourgeoisie, and by commercial and proto-industrial revolution. Italy shared in both worlds. It remained a land of cities and of an urbanized ruling class (except in the Norman South) and re-established territorial city states; but the staes were very different from those of antiquity, the city leaders in the commercial revolution, and Italy itself seen as a nation of shopkeepers, birthplace of capitalism. In this fascinating and ground-breaking study, Philip Jones traces in detail the tension and interaction between the two traditions, civic and patrician, mercantile and bourgeois, through all phases of Italian life to their culmination in two rival regimes of communes and despots.
This is the second book based on the author's journals about life at one of the most famous communes of the "back to the land" era.
