Excerpt: Rosendale Village is a hamlet and census-designated place within the town of Rosendale in Ulster County, New York, United States, with a population of roughly 1,500 people. The area was originally settled in the late 17th century by Jacob Rutsen, a merchant from Albany, but did not become a major population center until the 1825 discovery of Rosendale cement in the region; the development of the cement industry, and the growth of the Delaware and Hudson Canal along the Rondout Creek and Main Street, gave rise to substantial economic development in Rosendale. The town's cement was used in the construction of numerous national landmarks. The Wallkill Valley Railroad reached the village in 1871, and its depot in the village was the largest station on the Wallkill Valley line. Rosendale was formally incorporated as a village in 1890. An 1895 fire destroyed half the village, as it had no form of fire protection at that time. Throughout the 20th century, the decline of the natural cement industry caused Rosendale to suffer economically and lose population. The village was also battered by a series of severe floods, and the center of commerce began to shift from Main Street to Route 32. By the 1970s the village was having severe problems with its utilities and tax code, and was no longer producing cement. The hippie movement brought many artists to the village during this time, which lead to ideological clashes between the newcomers and the more conservative, established residents. In 1976, the...

The Encyclopedia of New York State is one of the most complete works on the Empire State to be published in a half-century. In nearly 2,000 pages and 4,000 signed entries, this single volume captures the impressive complexity of New York State as a historic crossroads of people and ideas, as a cradle of abolitionism and feminism, and as an apex of modern urban, suburban, and rural life. The Encyclopedia is packed with fascinating details from fields ranging from sociology and geography to history. Did you know that Manhattan's Lower East Side was once the most populated neighborhood in the world, but Hamilton County in the Adirondacks is the least densely populated county east of the Mississippi; New York is the only state to border both the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean; the Erie Canal opened New York City to rich farmland upstate . . . and to the west. Entries by experts chronicle New York's varied areas, politics, and persuasions with a cornucopia of subjects from environmentalism to higher education to railroads, weaving the state's diverse regions and peoples into one idea of New York State. Lavishly illustrated with 500 photographs and figures, 120 maps, and 140 tables, the Encyclopedia is key to understanding the state's past, present, and future. It is a crucial reference for students, teachers, historians, and business people, for New Yorkers of all persuasions, and for anyone interested in finding out more about New York State.

»Die präzise Beschreibung einer realen Begebenheit aus dem letzten Jahrhundert, die ein erhellendes Schlaglicht auf die USA von heute wirft.« Thomas Wörtche Über das Buch 20. Oktober 1907 in Kingston, Ulster County, irgendwo in den Catskill Mountains. Ein Galgen wird gezimmert, Strick und Fallhöhe getestet, die braven Bürger strömen herbei, die Musik spielt fröhliche Weisen. Der Delinquent ist Oscar Jukes, Sippenoberhaupt einer Familie, die man heute »white trash« nennen würde. (Halb-)Analphabeten mit betrüblichen hygienischen und moralischen Standards und viel krimineller Energie. Die Stützen der Gesellschaft, die ihn zum Tode verurteilt haben, sind religiöse Eiferer voll alttestamentarischem Furor mit Sympathien für den und eigenen politischen und ökonomischen Interessen. Angeklagt ist Oscar Jukes unter anderem wegen Kannibalismus, weil man im Kochkessel einschlägige Rückstände gefunden hat. Was ist aber wirklich passiert? Was wird gespielt? Und muss Oscar Jukes am Ende hängen? »The Cannibal of Pang Yang« ist schon allein deshalb eine Sensation, weil es die erste Erzählung des Edgar-Preisträgers Thomas Adcock nach einer jahrelangen Pause ist. Zudem ist der Text selbst ein kleines Juwel konzentrierter und sarkastischer Erzählkunst.
