The Apocalypse of John is a work of immense importance and learning. Yet among the major works of early Christianity included in the New Testament it has received relatively little scholarly attention.This work is a significant contribution to remedying this neglect. The author examines the meticulous literary artistry, creative imagination, radical political critique and profound theology of the Apocalypse of John. It is a sustained enterprise to understand both the form and the message of the Apocalypse in its literary and historical contexts.An invaluable and illuminating work for students, scholars and ministers

White Cargo is the forgotten story of the thousands of Britons who lived and died in bondage in Britain’s American colonies. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves. Urchins were swept up from London’s streets to labor in the tobacco fields, where life expectancy was no more than two years. Brothels were raided to provide “breeders” for Virginia. Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock. Drawing on letters crying for help, diaries, and court and government archives, Don Jordan and Michael Walsh demonstrate that the brutalities usually associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence, but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history. This is a saga of exploration and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery. White Cargo brings the brutal, uncomfortable story to the surface.

This charming account of life, circa 1956, in a remote mining town in central Colorado, depicts a vivid sense of the intensity of a child’s world - its passions, fears, anxieties, joys and pleasures. Contrasted with the ambience of family life in all its detail and devotion are sharp, but often wry, scenes where the young protagonist strains against the restrictions and prohibitions that are a natural part of growing up and the testing of which in large part measures that growth. The storyline is interwoven with historical vignettes regarding the molybdenum mining industry during it’s heyday, and the foundation and maintenance of the town of Climax at 11,300 feet - a unique community and an important part of Colorado history.

Gallipoli: the mere name summons the story of this well-known campaign of the First World War. And the story of Gallipoli, where in August 1915 the Allied forces made their last valiant effort against the Turks, is one of infamous might-have-beens. If only the Allies had held out a little longer, pushed a little harder, had better luck—Gallipoli might have been the decisive triumph that knocked the Ottoman Empire out of the First World War. But the story is just that, author Rhys Crawley tells us: a story. Not only was the outcome at Gallipoli not close, but the operation was flawed from the start, and an inevitable failure. A painstaking effort to set the historical record straight, Climax at Gallipoli examines the performance of the Allies’ Mediterranean Expeditionary Force from the beginning of the Gallipoli Campaign to the bitter end. Crawley reminds us that in 1915, the second year of the war, the Allies were still trying to adapt to a new form of warfare, with static defense replacing the maneuver and offensive strategies of earlier British doctrine. In the attempt both the MEF at Gallipoli and the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front aimed for too much—and both failed. To explain why, Crawley focuses on the operational level of war in the campaign, scrutinizing planning, command, mobility, fire support, interservice cooperation, and logistics. His work draws on unprecedented research into the files of military organizations across the United Kingdom and Australia. The result is a view of the Gallipoli Campaign unique in its detail and scope, as well as in its conclusions—a book that looks past myth and distortion to the facts, and the truth, of what happened at this critical juncture in twentieth-century history.

The Christological Climax of Paul's Defence

In this book we attempt to discover what Luke wants to say in Ac 26. We claim that this chapter forms the Christological climax of Paul's defence (Ac 22-26). To prove this we divide our material into eight chapters; the first chapter is nothing but the history of the significant investigations of Ac 26. The second chapter lays down the directions which our investigation must follow. Perhaps, the most difficult aspect of this chapter remains our definition of uChristological. Now Ac 26 contains all of the following data: what happens to Christ happens to Paul, and so we have a comparison between Christ's appearance before Pilate and Herod Antipas and Paul's hearing before Festus and Agrippa II; our speech is held together by the resurrection of Christ who dominates the scene; Paul and Christ have the same mission; finally, Paul fulfils the predictions (Lk 12:8-12; 21:12-19) which Christ made and thus becomes a model for Christians. When one seeks an adjective to describe this varied material found in Ac 26, Christological comes to mind because some of the above aspects can only be called Christological while the others can be sufficiently well classified under an extended use of the term. We find a double diptych in 25:13-26:23. First, Ac 25:13-26: 1a fall into two parts each of which contains the same seven points. Secondly, the speech offers a similar structure; after the capitation benevolentiae (26:2-3) we find a diptych (26:4-8,9-23).

Rarely has a third political party in the United States exerted a force upon national events comparable to that of the Populists during the 1890s. This force reached its climax in the presidential race of 1896, when the national reforms epitomized in the cry for free silver were at issue. Yet despite a number of recent studies, confusion and error regarding the Populists in the crucial election of 1896 still persist. Robert F. Durden, by extensive use of the papers of Marion Butler, Populist senator from North Carolina and national chairman of the party during the campaign, sheds new light upon many points -- the conduct of the St. Louis convention, the role of Tom Watson, and the fusion strategy. Durden's work is not only valuable for its clarification of the Populist campaign, but also for the example it offers of the practical working of American politics with the baffling balances among regions and groups.
