The discovery of gold in California in 1848 sparked a frenzy that shook the world. People swarmed to the gold fields from as far as China and Australia. They came by ship and overland, braving Tierra del Fuego and the pestilence of Panama, lured by the promise of riches. At the heart of The Age of Gold is the story of Captain John Fremont, the flamboyant adventurer who "liberated" California from Mexico, only to find himself accused of mutiny. Fremont met his match in young Jessie Benton, a headstrong, fiercely intelligent Senator's daughter. Together, John and Jessie Fremont would play a fateful role in the drama unfolding on the gold fields as they lurched, like so many others, from financial ruin to astonishing riches.

In this original and provocative book Russell Fraser has set himself no less a task than the description and interpretation of one of the signal "facts" of Western history—the breaking away of the present from the medieval past. He locates this break in England in the sixteenth century, and on the continent two hundred years earlier. Unafraid to synthesize, he weaves a rich fabric of quotations, allusions, and examples from art, music, philosophy, theology, and physical science to explain the cultural transition to the modern world. Although the author ranges from Plato to the present, his focus is concentrated on the major figures of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, especially Shakespeare, "the last and greatest of medieval artists." His intention is always to draw together and compare medieval. Renaissance, and contemporary attitudes so that the reader can see the past becoming the present, how and when this transformation occurred, and for what reasons. Originally published in 1973. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

"The age of aging will begin in 2014 as the last of the baby boomers turn 50. No other global trend will do more to impact the way we live, think, act, and interact with brands for the next twenty years. The Old Rush: Marketing for Gold in the Age of Aging is an invaluable primer for marketers who want to seize the next big fast-growth opportunity-a chance to propel their brands and businesses forward rapidly and on a global scale. In this book, Peter Hubbell makes a strong case for why the nearly 80 million baby boomers are marketing's most valuable generation and then outlines the basic rules of marketing engagement with this cohort along with practical ideas that brands and businesses can use to create their own success. The lessons from the Gold Rush are particularly apt to the modern-day Old Rush: decisiveness, agility, creativity, and perseverance will be the skills needed to thrive with the aging consumer"--Publisher description.
