Foundations of Just Cross-Cultural Dialogue in Kant and African Political Thought by Gemma K. Bird
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 223 Pages | ISBN : 3319979426 | 3.3 MB

This book addresses the potential existence of shared foundational principles in the work of Immanuel Kant and a range of African political thought, as well as their suitability in facilitating just and fair cross-cultural dialogue. The book first establishes an analytical framework grounded in a Kantian approach to understanding shared human principles, suggesting that a drive to be self-law giving may underpin all human interactions regardless of cultural background.

Caroline's Dilemma: A colonial inheritance saga by Bettina Bradbury
English | November 1st, 2019 | ISBN: 1742244661 | 352 pages | EPUB | 7.20 MB

Caroline Kearney faced a heart-breaking dilemma. She was 31 years old and had six children when her husband died in 1866. She had hoped that her sons would inherit the sheep station they owned in the Wimmera in Victoria. But she had no right to it herself. Her husband's will offered a reasonable annuity to support her and the children. But, it had a catch: for that support to be paid, she had to move to Ireland with her children and live in a house her brothers-in-law would choose. English-born, she had migrated to Australia with her family when she was sixteen.

The Expatriate Myth: New Zealand Writers and the Colonial World by Helen Bones
English | October 31st, 2019 | ISBN: 1988531179 | 242 pages | EPUB | 1.12 MB

Many New Zealand writers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century traveled extensively or lived overseas for a time. In The Expatriate Myth, Helen Bones presents a challenge to this conventional understanding that writers had to leave in order to find literary inspiration and publishing opportunities. Was it actually necessary for them to leave to find success? How prevalent was expatriatism among New Zealand writers? Did their experiences fit the usual tropes about expatriatism and exile? Were they fleeing an oppressive society lacking in literary opportunity?

Witchcraft in Colonial Virginia by Carson O. Hudson Jr.
English | August 26th, 2019 | ISBN: 146714424X | 128 pages | EPUB | 4.51 MB

While the witchcraft mania that swept through Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 was significant, fascination with it has tended to overshadow the historical records of other persecutions throughout early America. Colonial Virginians shared a common belief in the supernatural with their northern neighbors. The 1626 case of Joan Wright, the first woman to be accused of witchcraft in British North America, began Virginia's own witch craze. Utilizing surviving records, local historian Carson Hudson narrates these fascinating stories.
