In this pioneering new work, based on a thorough re-reading of primary sources and new research in the Austrian State Archives, Franz Szabo presents a fascinating reassessment of the continental war.
Professor Szabo challenges the well-established myth that the Seven Years War was won through the military skill and tenacity of the King of Prussia, often styled Frederick the Great. Instead he argues that Prussia did not win, but merely survived the Seven Years War and did so despite and not because of the actions and decisions of its king.
With balanced attention to all the major participants and to all conflict zones on the European continent, the book describes the strategies and tactics of the military leaders on all sides, analyzes the major battles of the war and illuminates the diplomatic, political and financial aspects of the conflict.
After a childhood divided between America and Europe, Henry James settled with his family in New England, first in what he regarded as an outpost of Europe, Newport, and later in Cambridge. The family letters (the initial inspiration for this autobiographical enterprise), many of which recount the early career of William James at Harvard and in Germany, also reveal Henry James Sr.'s views on the intellectual, philosophical, and social issues of the time. Henry Jr., aspiring to be "justliterary," acknowledges his indebtedness to the widely cultured artist John La Farge, whose friendship he enjoyed during adolescence. The Civil War is recorded through the letters of his younger brother, Wilky, while Henry recalls a Whitmanesque longing for the Union soldiers he met and talked to. The death of a beloved cousin, Mary Temple, who would become the inspiration for some of his greatest fictional heroines, is documented through the passionate, questioning letters she wrote in her final year of life. In The Middle Years James, newly resident in London, gives his impressions of some of the literary "lions" of the time, most notably George Eliot and Tennyson. This first fully annotated critical edition ofNotes of a Son and Brother and The Middle Years both offers the reader extensive support in appreciating the demands of James's late prose and illuminates the context in which one of literature's most influential figures developed a characteristic voice.
At first glance, Linda McElroy looked to be another ordinary house cleaner. Sixty-four years old, overweight and with glasses, she had settled into an anonymous life in Pulaski, Tennessee. "She blended into the community," forensic psychologist Paula Orange said. "Her employers all said the same thing about her. That she was a delight. Hard-working, friendly, and trustworthy." McElroy had remained in small, rural town of Pulaski for over thirty-five years. The reputation she had earned was hard-won. No one knew about her previous life. She was a convicted murderer. But now she was for all intents and purposes, a respected member of the community. A wife, mother and now grandmother to eight grandchildren. Unassuming and harmless. But the past thirty-five years had to have been tortuous ones for McElroy. Any unexpected knock on the door must have sent her heart racing. Any police siren in the distance must have sent her on edge. Could this be the day? The day when the authorities finally catch up with her. In 2007, they finally did.

The Society for Creative anachronism, which started out essentially as a backyard party in the '60s, is now a world-wide organization with members in the tens of thousands. To mark the occasion of the Society's 50th anniversary in 2016, Steven Muhlberger was asked to write a history of the organization, from its fledgling days when hobbits and elves were not an uncommon sight, to recent times when much more emphasis is placed on historical accuracy. Dr. Muhlberger was uniquely qualified for this task. He is a professional historian with seven scholarly books to his name, and has a long and diverse experience in the SCA, where he is known as Duke Finnvarr de Taahe. Under that name he has been recognized for excellence in tournament combat, reigned twice as king, and been honored for high accomplishment in the arts and exceptional service to the organization. Dr. Muhlberger describes how the Society originated in the unique environment of California's Bay Area; how a combination of discontent and whimsical creativity led a small group of young people to stage a tournament and then found "the Current Middle Ages;" and how this movement grew to include, eventually, participants on every continent. This is the story of how 20th-century America produced one of its most interesting and popular historical hobbies. This volume is a must for anyone interested in the SCA and its origins, in medieval re-enactment and its connection to science-fiction and fantasy fandom, and in what has been called "inter-kingdom anthropology" - how the Society relates to the larger society around it.
