NEW FIELD, NEW CORN is an anthology of research papers that explore a range of topics from the rich legal history of the state of Alabama and its influential legal and judicial figures. Contemporary photography and maps are featured as well. “New Field, New Corn presents eight new essays on Alabama legal history from the pre-Civil War era through the Civil Rights era. These elegant and novel chapters survey a broad spectrum, from economics, race, education, and professional concerns of lawyers, to plain old legal doctrine, to show how those variables affected the state’s development. These essays reveal why we need intensive studies of American law at the state and county level in the 19th and 20th centuries. For they demonstrate that law is embedded in our culture. These invite many other studies, from the county level on up, in other states, to demonstrate how law lies at the center of nation’s history. They reaffirm my faith that there are many, many fascinating stories left to tell about our nation’s journey towards fulfilling the promises of law.” — Alfred L. Brophy Judge John J. Parker Distinguished Professor of Law University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill Author, Reparations: Pro and Con (2006) and Reconstructing the Dreamland (2002) “Alabama legal history can be surprising. Usually, this history is identified with dominant one-party politics, slavery, racial segregation, and limited social welfare. University of Alabama Law School legal historian Paul Pruitt’s collection of young lawyers’ research reveals a new field. It extends out from legal subjects, embracing new perceptions of law in society across Alabama history. The collection rests on broad research. Lawyers working in diverse fields have produced Alabama legal history that sets a new standard.” — Tony Freyer University Research Professor of History and Law, Emeritus University of Alabama Author, Hugo L. Black and the Dilemma of American Liberalism (2007), and coauthor, Democracy and Judicial Independence (1996) The volume’s contents include: • Bryan K. Fair’s Foreword: “Critiquing Our Present, Interrogating Our Past” • Paul M. Pruitt, Jr.’s Introduction: “Alabama Legal History as a Field of Study” • Warren Hoffman: “Developments of the Enclosure Movement in Alabama: Disrupting the Free Roaming” • Paul Rand: “Flush Times in the Chancery: A Brief Note on the History of Equity and Trusts” • Helen Eckinger: “The Militarization of the University of Alabama” • Eddie Lowe: “Economic Growth in Blount County/Onteonta: Attorneys, Companies, and Cases” • Mike Dodson: “Pioneers in Alabama Legal History: A Firm Understanding of the History of Alabama” • Courtney Cooper: “A Man in a Boy’s Coat: The Evolution of Alabama’s Constitutions” • Deirdra Drinkard: “The Uniform Beneath the Robe” • Ellie Campbell: “The ‘Breakthrough Verdict’: Strange v.

Als im April 1861 der Amerikanische Bürgerkrieg ausbricht, ist der 21jährige Sam Watkins aus Maury County, Tennessee einer der tausenden von Kriegsfreiwilligen, die sich zu den Armeen der Südstaaten melden. Watkins schließt sich der „Co. Aytch" (so die lautmalerische Ausschreibung für „Kompanie H") des 1. Tennessee-Infanterieregiments an und folgt dem Regiment von den ersten kleinen Gefechten in Virginia bis zur vernichtenden Niederlage der konföderierten Tennessee-Armee in der Schlacht von Nashville. In seinen im Jahre 1881 entstandenen Kriegserinnerungen schildert Watkins mit scharfem Blick für das Erzählenswerte und feinem Sinn für Humor all jene furchtbaren und absurd-komischen Geschehnisse, die der Wahnsinn des Krieges für einen Soldaten der konföderierten Tennessee-Armee bereithielt. Dabei gewährt „Co. Aytch", das zu Recht als Standardwerk der Bürgerkriegsliteratur gilt, nicht nur einen wertvollen Einblick in die Erlebnisse und Gedanken des durchschnittlichen „Johnny Reb", sondern ist zugleich bewegendes Zeugnis eines Versuchs der literarischen Vergangenheitsbewältigung. Ein Anhang der erhaltenen, vom Regimentskommandeur verfassten Gefechtsberichte des 1. Tennessee-Regiments zu den Schlachten von Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro und Chickamauga ermöglicht einen aufschlussreichen Vergleich zu den Schilderungen des unmittelbar beteiligten Soldaten.

«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post

"Bummel durch Europa" (Original: "A Tramp Abroad") ist ein halb-fiktiver, satirischer Reisebericht des amerikanischen Autors Mark Twain, der erstmals 1880 erschien. Das Buch beschreibt eine Reise von zwei Freunden durch Deutschland, die Alpen und Italien im Jahr 1878. Der Ich-Erzähler ist Mark Twain selbst, der Reisebegleiter seinem Freund Joseph Twichell nachgebildet. Beide Reisenden hatten sich eigentlich vorgenommen, den größten Teil des Weges zu Fuß zurückzulegen, finden dann aber doch ständig andere Möglichkeiten der Fortbewegung. Twain spielt auf dieser Reise den typischen amerikanischen Touristen jener Zeit, der angeblich alles sofort versteht, was er sieht, in Wahrheit aber häufig daneben liegt.
