Excerpt from Chambers's Journal of Popular Literature, Science and Arts, Vol. 7: January-June, 1857 After this rude fashion they feasted day after day, until New-year's-eve, when the king dismissed his guests with handsome presents, giving to the most distinguished persons among them gold-mounted swords, which had been prepared for the occasion. These festal Christmas customs were introduced by the Northmen into Great Britain, which, during the ninth and tenth centuries, suffered severely from the continual inroads of these hardy and adventurous Norsemen, by whom eventually a large portion of Scotland and of England was populated. They brought with them their deep reverence for law, their true loyalty of heart, and - alas! That there should be a dark shade in the picture - their inordinate love of the foaming horn, now exchanged for the tankard.

THE pleasures of social intercourse are amongst the best and truest enjoyments in which we can participate—the desire for the friendship of others is more or less inherent in human nature. There are nevertheless thousands upon thousands who are surrounded by every opportunity for realising these pleasures, and who yet fail to benefit by their influence, either for temporary and healthy pastime, or for permanent good. Most people have doubtless many amongst their circle of acquaintance who are easily distinguished from others by the term ‘unsociable.’ It would, however, be both unfair and incorrect to estimate that a large proportion of a given number of people have a decided objection to and shun all society. The habitually unsociable people are frequently those who would readily confess to a liking for society, but who do not enter into it on account of the various and numerous obstacles which, they will tell you, are in the way. It is not so much on account of an innate and acknowledged indisposition for social intercourse that the saying, ‘Some folk are as unsociable as milestones,’ is proverbially correct, as that many barriers have been erected by the suspicious imaginations of those concerned. People are often heard to complain of the unsociability of others; but it is not unseldom that the very people who adopt this standpoint are those who, at the least approach from others, retire almost entirely within their insignificant individuality, and assume a reserve of manner and constrained mode of conversation, that of itself forbids any attempt to cultivate their acquaintance. Something like a hedgehog which, should you happen to catch sight of it, instead of making friends, rolls itself up into a ball, and shews off its bristles to the best advantage.

The social, political, and cultural consequences of attempts to cheat death by freezing life. As the planet warms and the polar ice caps melt, naturally occurring cold is a resource of growing scarcity. At the same time, energy-intensive cooling technologies are widely used as a means of preservation. Technologies of cryopreservation support global food chains, seed and blood banks, reproductive medicine, and even the preservation of cores of glacial ice used to study climate change. In many cases, these practices of freezing life are an attempt to cheat death. Cryopreservation has contributed to the transformation of markets, regimes of governance and ethics, and the very relationship between life and death. In Cryopolitics, experts from anthropology, history of science, environmental humanities, and indigenous studies make clear the political and cultural consequences of extending life and deferring death by technoscientific means. The contributors examine how and why low temperatures have been harnessed to defer individual death through freezing whole human bodies; to defer nonhuman species death by freezing tissue from endangered animals; to defer racial death by preserving biospecimens from indigenous people; and to defer large-scale human death through pandemic preparedness. The cryopolitical lens, emphasizing the roles of temperature and time, provokes new and important questions about living and dying in the twenty-first century.

Dickens Journalism and Nationhood

Dickens, Journalism, and Nationhood examines Charles Dickens’ weekly family magazine Household Words in order to develop a detailed picture of how the journal negotiated, asserted and simultaneously deconstructed Englishness as a unified (and sometimes unifying) mode of expression. It offers close readings of a wide range of materials that self-consciously focus on the nature of England as well as the relationship between Britain and the European continent, Ireland, and the British colonies. Starting with the representation and classification of identities that took place within the framework of the Great Exhibition of 1851, it suggests that the journal strives for a model of the world in concentric circles, spiraling outward from the metropolitan center of London. Despite this apparent orderliness, however, each of the national or regional categories constructed by the journal also resists and undermines such a clear-cut representation.

Capitalism and Classical Social Theory Second Edition

Most texts on classical social theory offer exhaustive coverage of every possible theorist, making it difficult to use the book in one semester. Capitalism and Classical Social Theory, Second Edition represents a departure from this approach by offering solid coverage of the classical triumvirate (Marx, Durkheim, and Weber), but also extending the canon strategically to include Simmel, four early female theorists, and the writings of Du Bois. The result is a manageable, but thorough, examination of the key classical theorists. The second edition has been updated throughout and includes two new chapters: one on Weber and rationalization, and one on Du Bois and his writings on race. A new concluding chapter links classical theory to current developments in capitalism during an age of austerity.

This is the memoir of Daniel Moginié, a Swiss adventurer, first published in French in Lausanne in 1754 under the title l'Illustre Paisan. Further editions soon appeared in London, Frankfurt and Berne. As a young man Daniel travels to the Netherlands Indies and from there to Persia where he participates in the civil unrest, successively helping the Afghans, the reigning Shah and the usurper Nadir Shah. On Nadir's behalf he fights the Turks and undertakes a mission to Constantinople. Falling from favour he escapes to his former friends in Kandahar and then to India where he serves the Moghul Muhammad Shah. Daniel survives as a titled supporter of the Moghul and marries one of his daughters. When illness overtakes him he longs for reunion with his younger brother François. A sub-plot has it that the Moginié family derives from a line of west Asian kings, who settled in Switzerland after losing power. Daniel also seeks to regain the family status and fortune in the land of his forebears. The two Moginié brothers undoubtedly existed, but much of the book was probably the work of the political writer J-H. Maubert de Gouvest. His convenient plagiarisms show us the east through European eyes before the rise of colonialism and orientalism in the nineteenth century. The condition of Persia and Turkey directly affected Europe because of their borders with the Austrian and Russian empires. The tale is both an adventure and a review of a powerful and important region, its politics, trade and military potential. As the same time it is also a detective story in which the mysteries have not yet been resolved. Did Daniel write the memoir? Was it ghosted by Maubert or entirely written by him? If Maubert wrote it all, did Daniel even reach India? Did François collect his legacy? Who is the author of the notice in the Gentleman's Magazine in 1750? What part was played by the Chollets, father and son? Was François the subject of a hoax or the originator of one (or neither)? Were the Moginie ancestors kings or cowherds? One day the pieces may fit together to form a complete picture. Daniel's brother François/Francis was the founder of an English branch of the family, now established in Australia and New Zealand.
