Product Description
Customer Reviews
Throughout the six decades of Queen Victoria’s reign, France underwent immense political changes, fluctuating between monarchies, empires and republics. Relations between Britain and France were equally variable, as the shadow of Napoleon Bonaparte still hung over the collective memory, and it was widely believed on both sides of the Channel, that one day his successors would attempt to avenge the defeat of Waterloo.<br />Against this background, Queen Victoria was forced to navigate the tumultuous waters of international relations, balancing her personal feelings with her role as a constitutional monarch. Despite the mistrust between Britain and France, and the animosity between the Orléans and Bonaparte families, she succeeded in forming firm friendships with both King Louis Philippe d’Orléans, and Napoleon’s nephew, Emperor Napoleon III without compromising her position as Queen.

The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed <b>MITCHELL </b>(<b>MITCHEL</b>) (with 52 queries total), as well as <b>MITCHUM</b>, <b>MITCHNER</b>, and <b>MITNER </b>(with 1 query apiece).<br /><br />The focus is on families in the southern United States.<br /><br />Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although these queries were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you're working on the same names or lines.<br /><br />Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!<br /><br />Note: If you aren't sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?<br /><br />Other surnames occurring incidentally in the queries reproduced in this volume include ABERCROMBIE, ADAMS, ALLEN, ANDERSON, ARNOLD, AUGHTRY, AUNSPAUGH, AUSTIN, AVERY, AYERS, BAILEY, BAKER, BANNISTER, BARBER, BARCLAY, BARTON, BASDALE, BAXLEY, BEAN, BEAVERS, BETTY, BISHOP, BLANKENSHIP, BOND, BONDURANT, BONSALL, BOOTHE, BOTTOMS, BOX, BRADLEY, BRANDON, BRANOM, BREEDLOVE, BREWER, BRIDGES, BRIGHT, BROWN, BROWNING, BRUMMIT, BUFFORD, BULLOCK, BURKENHEAD, BURKHEAD, BURKS, BUSH, BUTLER, CAISON, CALENDAUGH, CALLEY, CAMPBELL, CANNON, CARLISLE, CARTE, CATES, CATO, CATTERTON, CHAFFIN, CHALKER, CHANEY, CHISM, CLARK, CLEILAND, COFFEY, COFIELD, COLE, COLESON, COLLINS, CONWELL, COOK, COOPER, COX, CRINER, CROW, CUPP, DALTON, DANIELL, DAVIS, DAWSON, DEASON, DELONG, DeLONG, DENNIS, DESHA, DEVANE, DONAHUE, DONELSON, DOWEL, DOWELL, DOWNEY, DRUMMOND, DUFF, DUNBAR, DUPREE, DUPUY, DWIRE, EBBERHEART, EDMONDS, ELLIS, ELMORE, ENLOE, ENLOW, ESTES, ETHERIDGE, EUBANKS, FINGER, FLETCHER, FORD, FOX, FRANKLIN, FRASIER, FRIDAY, FRIERSON, FUQUA, GAINES, GANDY, GARNER, GATEWOOD, GAY, GIBBONS, GILLIAM, GILSTRIP, GOODEN, GOODING, GOODWYNNE, GORDEN, GOREE, GORMAN, GREENING, GRIFFIN, GRINNIN, HAAS, HALEY, HALF, HALL, HAMILTON, HAMM, HARPER, HARRELL, HARRIS, HARRISON, HART, HATCHER, HAWKINS, HAYS, HEFFERMAN, HEFLIN, HICKMAN, HIGGINBOTTOM, HIGGINS, HINTON, HOPKINS, HUDNELL, HUFFMAN, HUGHES, HUGHS, HULL, HULSEY, HUTCHESON, INMAN, IVY, JACKSON, JAMES, JENNINGS, JOHNSON, JONES, KEITH, KELLEY, KING, KINGSLEY, KNIGHT, KORNEGAY, LACKHART, LANDRUM, LANFORD, LANKFORD, LASATER, LEE, LEFTWICH, LEWIS, LINDSAY, LOCKETT, LOCKHARD, LOCKHART, LOFTUS, LOGAN, LONG, LONGBOTTOM, LOVE, LOVETT, MADDOX, MADDREY, MAJOR, MALONE, MANDAY, MANN, MARTIN, MASSEY, MATTISON, MAXWELL, McABEE, McALLISTER, McCULLOUGH, McFADDEN, McGHIE, McGINNIS, McKINNEY, MILES, MILLER, MILLIKEN, MIXON, MOORE, MORGAN, MORRIS, MOYE, MULL, MULLINS, NABORS, NABOURS, NEAL, NEWBY, NICHOLS, NORMAN, OGBURN, OLIVER, ONEY, OTEY, OTTS, PACE, PARKER, PEARCE, PETERSON, PEYTON, PINKSTON, PLANKINHORN, POPE, PRINGLE, RAINES, RAINEY, REID, RICE, RICHARDS, RICHARDSON, RICHRDSON, RIDASEL, RIDEOUT, ROBINSON, ROGERS, ROUSE, ROWE, RUCKER, RUFF, SCARBOROUGH, SCHIMITTER, SEXTON, SHEHORN, SHIP, SHIPP, SHOTWELL, SIMS, SLADE, SMITH, SNEAD, SNEED, SNELLING, STANCIL, STANLEY, STAPLES, STARKEY, STEPHENS, STEPHENSON, STEWART, STORY, STRADER, STRICKLAND, SULLIVAN, SUMMERS, SWIFT, TAYLOR, TENNIS, TERRY, THOMAS, THOMASON, THOMPSON, TOVERY, TUCKER, USSERY, VANN, VAUGHAN, VINSON, WALKER, WALLACE, WARD, WARREN, WATFORD, WATTS, WEATHERED, WELLS, WHATLEY, WHEELER, WHITE, WIGGINS, WILLIAMS, WILLIAMSON, WILSON, WITHERSPOON, WOOD, WRIGHT, YOUNG, YOUNGBLOOD, and YOUNGUE.

The Jewish War (illustrated)

Customer Reviews
The Jewish rebellion against Rome was a significant turning point in Jewish history. Although Josephus is known for his divided loyalties in the rebellion, his account is the most detailed record available of the Jewish life and revolt under Roman rule. Born in Jerusalem to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry, Josephus was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, hagiographer, and historian.<br /><br />Josephus began as a Jewish leader of the rebellion but when captured by the Romans, he switched sides to work as a negotiator in their effort to suppress the resistance. As Josephus was in a position to view the conflict from both sides, his account is extremely insightful. Josephus’s words create a vivid picture from the capture of Jerusalem to the mass suicides at Masada. The Jewish Wars is a historic account useful not only for biblical study but for history lovers as well. Josephus’s recorded histories include the Antiquities of the Jews, along with The Jewish War.

<b>William Gifford Palgrave</b>, (1828 à Westminster- 1888 à Montevideo - Uruguay), est un explorateur, écrivain et spécialiste de la langue arabe. Après avoir quitté les <b>Jésuites</b> il entra dans <b>le service diplomatique du Royaume-Uni</b>.<br /><br />Immédiatement après ses études universitaires, il part en Inde où il sert durant un temps dans l'armée anglaise. Peu de temps après, il se convertit au catholicisme, est ordonné prêtre et rejoint <b>l'ordre des Jésuites</b>. Il exerce en Inde, à Rome et en Syrie, en tant que membre de cet ordre. C'est en Syrie qu'il apprend à parler arabe.<br />Il réussit à convaincre ses supérieurs religieux de financer une mission à l'intérieur de l'Arabie, qui était à l'époque encore une <i>terre inconnue</i> aux yeux du reste du monde. Il s'assure également le soutien de l'empereur Français Napoléon III, l'ayant convaincu qu'une meilleure connaissance de l'Arabie servirait <b>l'impérialisme français en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient</b>.<br /><br /><b>Palgrave</b> retourne en Syrie, où il dissimule son identité en se faisant passer pour un physicien syrien en voyage. Chargé de bagages recelant des médicaments et des marchandises échangeables, il part pour Najd, dans le nord de l'Arabie centrale, accompagné d'un serviteur. <br /><br />Il voyage en se faisant passer pour un <b>musulman</b>, car affirmer son catholicisme aurait certainement causé la fureur des tribus arabes, qui l'auraient tué. Ainsi, toutes les missions qu'il mena pour la <b>Compagnie de Jésus</b> et pour <b>l'empire français</b>, il les réalisa en tant qu'explorateur et non en tant que missionnaire.<br /><br />Après avoir visité durant un an des régions allant de la <b>Syrie</b> au <b>Bahrein</b>, en passant par <b>Najd</b> et par <b>Oman</b>, il retourne en Europe où il rédige le récit de son voyage : <b>UNE ANNÉE DANS L’ARABIE CENTRALE</b>, sans jamais y faire aucune allusion aux motivations de ce séjour. <br /><br />Ce récit a connu un grand succès, et a été réédité de nombreuses fois depuis. <br /><br />Après avoir rédigé ce livre, Palgrave fera une volte-face et renoncera à son appartenance à l'Église catholique en 1865. Il entrera au service du <b>British Foreign Office</b>, et sera nommé consul à Sukhoumi en Géorgie en 1866. Il partira pour Trabzon en Turquie en 1867. En 1868, il épousera Katherine, la fille de George Edward Simpson, originaire de Norvège, avec laquelle il aura trois fils. Il sera nommé consul à Saint Thomas et à Sainte-Croix aux îles vierges américaines en 1873, à Manila en 1876 et en Bulgarie en 1878, où il sera nommé consul général.<br /><br />En 1879, il partira pour Bangkok. En 1884, il sera nommé ministre résidant et consul général en Uruguay, poste qu'il occupera jusqu'à sa mort. Il décèdera le 30 septembre 1888 à Montevideo, victime d'une bronchite.<br /><br />En plus de son travail sur l'Arabie centrale, Gifford Palgrave a publié des <b>Essais sur la question orientale</b>, un roman appelé <b>Hermann Agha</b>, des croquis de la Guyane hollandaise et un volume d'essais intitulé <b>Ulysses</b>.

From the Summary:<br /><br />The Belgian underground, one of the best organized in occupied Europe, contains active and passive resistance formations. The passive resistance groups, which have been organized mainly by the leaders of the pre-war political parties, aim at the liberation of the country in order to foster their own programs of economic, social, and political reforms. The active resistance forces, on the other hand, do not follow distinct party lines, and have organized sabotage and para-military groups. Their goals are the obstruction of the German administration and the undermining of the German war effort.
