The Reformation: A History

By MacCulloch, Diarmaid

NY: Viking Adult, 2004. 1st Edition 3rd Printing. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 6.4 x 2.1 x 9.5 inches. VERY GOOD BOARDS, NO DJ - CLEAN TEXT AND NO MARKINGS. The Reformation and Counter-Reformation represented the greatest upheaval in Western society since the collapse of the Roman Empire a millennium before. The consequences of those shattering events are still felt today-from the stark divisions between (and within) Catholic and Protestant countries to the Protestant ideology that governs America, the world's only remaining superpower.In this masterful history, Diarmaid MacCulloch conveys the drama, complexity, and continuing relevance of these events. He offers vivid portraits of the most significant individuals-Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Loyola, Henry VIII, and a number of popes-but also conveys why their ideas were so powerful and how the Reformation affected everyday lives. The result is a landmark book that will be the standard work on the Reformation for years to come. The narrative verve of The Reformation as well as its provocative analysis of American culture's debt to the period will ensure the book's wide appeal among history readers.

The Hundred Years War: The English in France, 1337-1453

By Desmond Seward

NY: Atheneum, 1978. 1st Edition Printing Unknown. Hardcover. Near Fine. 9.1 x 6.1 x 1 inches. DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT I LIVE BY WAR AND THAT PEACE WOULD BE MY UNDOING?" - Sir John Hawkwood. From 1337 to 1453 England repeatedly invaded France on the pretext that her kings had a right to the French throne. Though it was a small, poor country, England for most of those "hundred years" won the battles, sacked the towns and castles, and dominated the war. The protagonists of the Hundred Years War are among the most colorful in European history: Edward III, the Black Prince; Henry V, who was later immortalized by Shakespeare; the splendid but inept John II, who died a prisoner in London; Charles V, who very nearly overcame England; and the enigmatic Charles VII, who at last drove the English out. Desmond Seward's critically-acclaimed account of the Hundred Years War brings to life all of the intrigue, beauty, and royal to-the-death-fighting of that legendary century-long conflict.

The Spartans

By Paul Cartledge

NY: Overlook Books, 2003. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 5 x 1 x 8 inches. CLEAN TIGHT, LIKE NEW BOOK. NOR WRITING OR MARKINGS. The Spartans is a compelling. narrative that explores the culture and civilization of the most famous. "warrior people": the Spartans of ancient Greece, by the world's. leading expert in the field. Sparta has often been described as the original. Utopia--a remarkably evolved society whose warrior heroes were forbidden any. other trade, profession, or business. As a people, the Spartans were the living. exemplars of such core values as duty, discipline, the nobility of arms in a. cause worth dying for, sacrificing the individual for the greater good of the. community (illustrated by their role in the battle of Thermopylae), and the. triumph of will over seemingly insuperable obstacles--qualities that today are. frequently believed to signify the ultimate heroism. Paul Cartledge is the. distinguished scholar and historian who has long been seen as the leading. international authority on ancient Sparta. He traces the evolution of Spartan. society--the culture and the people, as well as the tremendous influence they. had on their world and even ours. He details throughout the narrative the lives. of such illustrious and myth-making figures as Lycurgus, King Leonidas, Helen. of Troy (and Sparta), and Lysander, and explains how the Spartans, although. they placed a high value on masculine ideals, nevertheless allowed women an. unusually dominant and powerful role--unlike Athenian culture with which the. Spartans are so often compared. In resurrecting the ancient culture and society. of the Spartans, Cartledge delves deep into ancient texts and archeological. sources and complements his text with illustrations that depict original. Spartan artifacts and drawings, as well as examples of representational. paintings from the Renaissance onwards--including J.L. David's famously. brooding "Leonidas." This illuminating volume that ties in with the. PBS television series of the same name, airing in the summer of 2003. Booklist. called Cartledge's The Greeks: Crucible of Civilization, a companion to the PBS. series, "superb," while The International History Review called. Cartledge's The Cambridge Illustrated History of Ancient Greece "an. original and insightful work." Hardcover: 304 pages Publisher: Harry N.
