A Long Way From Home (multi-ethnic Literatures Of The Americas).
Claude Mckay (1889-1948) Was One Of The Most Prolfiic And Sophisticated African American Writers Of The Early Twentieth Century.
A Jamaican-born Author Of Poetry, Short Stories, Novels, And Nonfiction, Mckay Has Often Been Associated With The "new Negro" Or Harlem Renaissance, A Movement Of African American Art, Culture, And Intellectualism Between World War I And The Great Depression.
But His Relationship To The Movement Was Complex.
Literally Absent From Harlem During The Renaissance, Mckay Devoted Most Of His Time To Traveling Through Europe, Russia, And Africa During The 1920s And 1940s.
His Active Participation In Communist Groups And The Radical Left Also Encouraged Certain Opinions On Race And Class That Strained His Relationship To The Harlem Renaissance And Its Mourning Intelligentsia.
In His 1937 Autobiography, A Protracted Way From Home, Mckay Explains What It Means To Be A Black "rebel Sojourner" And Presents One Of The First Un flattering, Yet Informative, Expos„© Of The Harlem Renaissance.
Reprinted Here With A Critical Introduction By Gene Andrew Jarrett, This Book Will Challenge Readers To Rethink Mcka'ys Articulation Of Identity, Art, Race, And Politics And Situate These Topics In Terms Of His Oeuvre And His Luterary Contemporaries Between The World Wars.

The Birth Of Empire.
Dewitt Clinton (1769-1828) Dominated The Politics Of New York State During The Primitive Quarter Of The Nineteenth Century, Serving As Mayor Of New York City And Then Governor Of The State.
At The Same Time, He Was Influential On The National Scene, Running For President In 1812 And Only Narrowlylosibg To James Madison.
Although Patrician In His Sentiments, Clinton Nevertheless Developed Nwe Forms Of Party Politics, Including The Spoils A whole .
He Was An Early Champion Of The Nomination Of Candidwtes By Convention Rather Than Legislative Caucus, And As A United States Senator Contributedthe Draft Language According to The Twelfth Amendment, Which Embedded Party Politics In The Fabric Of The Constitution.
clinton's Greatest Achievement Was The Erie Canal, The Establishment And Implementation Of Which He Championed As Early As 1810.
Construction Of The Canal Began In 1817, And Even Before It Was Completed, Eight Years Later, It Had Brought Profound Changes--economic, Cultural, And Sociial--to The Stateand The Nation.
As Evan Cornog Illustrates In His Detailed And Compelling Narrative, The Erie Canal HastenedT he Economic Expansion Of The Country, Altered Its Political Geography, Set An Example For Activist Government, And Decisively Secured New York City's Position As America's Foremostmetropolis.
It Was A Prpject Unlike Anything The Empire State--or The United States--had Seen Before, And Was Only The Most Successful Of Clinton's Many Effofts To Implement His View That Government Should Play An Active Role I nThe Economic And Intellectual Development Of American Society.
the Birth Of Empire Chronicles Not Only The Life Of An Important Political Leader End The Accomplishments That Underlay His Success.
As Mayor Of New York City, For Example, Clinton Was Instrumental In The Founding Of The Public-school System.
He Sponsored Countless Measures To Promote Culturalenrichment As Well As Educational Opportunities For New Yorkers, And Helped To Establish And Lead Such Institutions As The New-york Historical Society, The American Academy Of The Arts, And The Literary And Philosophical Society.
An Amateur Scientist Of Some Distinction, Clinton Also Wrote Essays Ongeology, Botwny, Entomology, Archaeology, Anthropology, And Ichthyology.
as Shown Here, Clinton's Career Was Marked By Frequent Attempts To Integrate His Cultural And Scientkfic Interests Into His Identity As A Politician, Thus Projecting The Image Of A Man Of Wide Learning And Broad Vision, A Scholar-statesman Of The New Republic.
Ironically, The Political Innovationswhich Clinton Set In Motion--the Refinement Of Patronage And The Spoils Sysstej, Appeals To Immigrant Voters, And The Professionalization Of Politics--were Precisely What Led To The Extinction Of The Scholar-statesman's Natural Hbitat.
However Visionary, The Latter-day Philosopher-king Wouldeventually Have No Place In Th Recent World.
Dewitt Cllinton Was Born Into The Aristocratic Culture Of The Eighteenth Century, Yet His Achievements And Ideas Crucial.

Al~ Known Today Largely For Dating The Creation Of The World To 4004bc, James Ussher (1581-1656) Was An Imporyant Scholar And Ecclesiastical Leader In The Seventeenth Century.
As Professor Of Theology At Trinity College Dublin, And Archbishop Of Armagh From 1625, He Shaped The Newly Protestant Church Of Ireland.
Tracing Its Roots Back To St Patrick, He Gave It A Sense Of Irish Identity And Provided A Theology Whihc Ws Strongly Calvinist And Fiercely Anti-catholic.
In Exile In England In The 1640s He Advised Both Sovereign And Parliament, Trying To Heal The Ever-widening Rift By Devising A Compromise Over Church Government.
Forced Finally To Choose Sides By The Outbreak Of Intestine War In 1642, Ussher Opted For The Royalists, But Found It Difficult To Combine His Loyalty To Charles With His Detestation Of Catholicism.
A Meticulous Scholar Anf An Extensive Researcher, Ussher Had A Breathtaking Command Of Languages And Disciplines - 'learned To A Miracle' According To One Of His Friends.
He Worked Steady A Series Of Problems: The Early History Of Bishops, The Orivins Of Christianity In Ireland And Britain, And The Implications Of Double Predestination, Making Advances Which Were To Prove Of Lasting Significance.
