To Live Ancient Lives signals a sharp redirection of Puritan studies. It provides the first comprehensive study of Puritan primitivism, defined as the drive to recover and return to church and society the ordinances of biblical times. This work traces a campaign to purify English Christianity of postapostolic accretions from the Henrician Reformation to the Great Migration of 1630 and through the first five decades in New England. Taking their bearings from a special past, Puritans were not concerned with the future in a modern sense. The Great Migration was not intended as an errand to reform the world or inaugurate the millennium, but as a flight to a free world in which long-lost biblical rules and ways could be reinstituted. Drawing on hundreds of sermons and tracts, Bozeman demonstrates how the search for the long-lost helps to identify Puritanism as a discrete order within Protestant dissent, and he locates that movement within the larger spectrum of restorationist Christian movements and of Western mythology.

Sandra Gustafson examines the verbal art of speech in sacred, political and diplomatic forms as it was created and practiced in colonial America and the early republic. She demonstrates that, in the distinctly American interaction of cultures, contact and conflict among Europeans, native Americans, and Africans gave particular significance and complexity to the uses of the spoken word.

This handbook is the first publication to systematically present the history of slavery in the context of global history. The point of departure is an understanding of slavery as the capitalization of the human body. The most diverse types of slavery are analyzed – on all continents, under its respective names and in its historical context. This broad empirical basis leads to a history of slavery beginning around 10,000 BC and continuing to the present day.

Mit dem Blick auf das Wissen bietet dieser Band eine neue Perspektive auf die Bedingungen in Nordwesteuropa kurz vor der Industrialisierung. In einer Verbindung von Wirtschafts- und Kommunikationsgeschichte prasentiert Anja Timmermann ein Modell fur die systematische Analyse von Spezialwissen in den Enzyklopadien und Fachschriften des 18. Jahrhunderts als den "Massenmedien" der Zeit. Im Zentrum der Quellenstudie steht eine der bedeutendsten und teuersten aussereuropaischen Handelswaren: Der Blaufarbstoff Indigo war auf besondere Weise mit der Produktion und Zirkulation von Spezialwissen verbunden. Indigo stand im Zentrum der Herstellung modischer Kattune, dem ersten industriell gefertigten und global nachgefragten Massenprodukt. Ein "innovativer" Umgang mit Wissen seit der Jahrhundertmitte bildete dafur die Voraussetzung. Das Werk setzt Wissen als wirtschaftshistorischen Untersuchungsgegenstand in Wert und enthalt Aspekte der Global-, Ubersee-, Kultur-, Technik-, Kunst- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte.

The history of German Jews in America has until now mainly been studied as an area of modern history. This volume now analyzes the influence that German Jews exerted in the development of an "American Judaism" with a marked bourgeois identity, which began with the first German-Jewish mass immigration to the United States in 1830.
