On a cold wet May day in 1813, during the War of 1812, Colonel William Dudley led a green regiment of Kentucky militia against the British and their Indian allies in an effort to relieve the siege of Fort Meigs. Their effort to capture the British cannons on the shore opposite Fort Meigs proved to be a success. Their failure to follow orders and return to their boats and cross over to the safety of Fort Meigs would lead to what would become known as Dudleys Defeat or the Dudley Massacre. Base on several years of research, James Emch has pieced together a chronological running narrative of the Dudley Massacre based on military reports, accounts of those present, family histories, old manuscripts, and diaries. The result of his effort is the first book ever written about those fateful events on May 5, 1813, that helped changed the old Northwest Territory forever.

The Bumper Book of Slightly Forgotten British Olympians and Other Sporting Heroes is just that: a collection of stirring tales of pluck, grit, triumph, disaster and on occasion, ineptitude, featuring a host of former sportspeople who've been utterly forgotten by history. From Maude Waveney, the plucky servant girl who bravely took half a day off work scrubbing kitchen floors to win a gold medal folding bedsheets in the first London games, to Tom Drake, Dressage's first punk, who shocked the sport with his slashed jacket and swear words on his hat.There's the tale of the Lincolnshire javelin thrower who fell under the spell of a cult devoted to the eating of egg and chips; of the mascot of Bexhill-on-Sea's ill fated bid to host the Olympics and "Ample" Arthur Cartwright, whose football career was blighted by an obsession with archaeology. They, and many others, all have a story to tell.

Rarely has an individual's life been so inseparable from his writing as was Randolph Bourne's. His work reveals not only his political viewpoints but also his humanistic personality and the tumultuous era during which he lived. Forgotten Prophet carefully examines the intellect and personality of the "born essayist" who saw clearly both his century's potential for harmony and the danger that it faced from the lingering tides of nineteenth-century European nationalism. Disfigured and hunchbacked, Bourne reacted to his disability not with bitterness or self-pity, but rather with an exuberant love for beauty and a compassion for humanity that created in him a longing for a truly cosmopolitan society--a "trans-national America" that would draw its strength from ethnic diversity and political pluralism. Nearly alone among American intellectuals, Bourne actively denounced involvement in World War I. He foresaw that, beyond the horrible cost in young lives, the war would bring in its wake the spiritual impoverishment of the nation and the disillusionment of its youth; it would strangle reform and social tolerance, exacerbate racism and nativism, and plant the seeds for further international instability. Although derided and largely ignored at the time they were written, Bourne's fearful predictions would all too quickly be confirmed in the dissolute frenzy of the jazz age, the turmoil of the 1930s, and the social chaos that brought about the rise of fascism in Europe and, soon, an even more destructive war. Bourne did not live to witness this terrifying unfolding of events. His career as a social critic was brief but prolific. When he died in 1918 at the age of thirty-two, a victim of the flu epidemic, he had completed three books and more than a hundred essays. His first book, Youth and Life, is considered by some to be the original manifesto of the counterculture. From his earliest years as a writer, Bourne was identified as a voice for youth, idealism, and progress in human relations. Forgotten Prophet characterizes Bourne not just as a foreseer of this century's bloodshed but, equally important, as an apostle of hope--a champion of what was best, most truthful in the arts, in politics, and in the conduct of our daily lives.

The success of the historiography of Humanism is one of the central phenomena in the history of scholarship in the Early Modern Age, but the reasons for this have never been satisfactorily explained. The authors of these conference proceedings search for answers by approaching the historical writings from different perspectives. They discuss both the semantics and the literary methods of the texts, as well as the social positions of the authors. Closely related to both themes is the question of the historical spaces dealt with in the works, in which the humanists show the way as far as the New World.
