Alexander Mackay: Missionary Hero of Uganda (1894) (With interactive table of contents)

Alexander Mackay: Missionary Hero of Uganda (1894) (With interactive table of contents)

https://www.amazon.com/Alexander-Mackay-Missionary-interacti...
"...Mackay jumped between the poor men who were attacked and their assailants. With great pluck he snatched a spear from the ringleader, and threatened to spear him unless he delivered up the stolen property. The canoe-men were thorough cowards, and, alarmed by Mackay's fierce manner, they at once gave up the bundles. The owners were full of gratitude, and fell down on their knees to thank Mackay for saving their lives and property...."Charles Thomas Wilson (1851-1917) was the first part of missionaries deputed by the Church Missionary Society in 1876 to form a station in the capital of King Mtesa, at the north-west corner of the Victoria Lake in Equatorial Africa, in reply to the challenge of Henry Stanley. In 1894, he published the book "Alexander Mackay: Missionary Hero of Uganda."Alexander Mackay, Missionary Hero of Uganda is another volume well worthy of taking its place in the “Splendid Lives Library.” It tells the life-story of its hero in language clear, forcible, and to the point. A good insight into the early history of the much-talked-of Uganda is given by this book, which shows plainly the almost insuperable difficulties the English missionaries had to deal with. Another point which is well brought out is the all-round capability of Mackay, which gained him the name of “White Man of Work” from the King, Mtesa. Much of his influence among the natives was due to their respect for his great practical knowledge of engineering. ContentsI. A GOOD BEGINNING.

James Wilson, Patriot, and the Wilson Doctrine

James Wilson, Patriot, and the Wilson Doctrine

https://www.amazon.com/James-Wilson-Patriot-Doctrine-ebook/d...
This volume was published in 1906." 1 cannot do better than base my theory of governmental action upon the words and deeds of one of Pennsylvania's greatest sons, Justice James Wilson." PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT. With these words Theodore Roosevelt, in a recent oration,* focussed public attention upon James Wilson, who through the vista of the nineteenth century is looming the intellectual colos- sus of the formative years of the Republic, and whose principles must eventually be the basis for the solution of those subtle constitutional problems which result from our closely inter- locked dual form of government. To many in our day, James Wilson will prove a revelation; to others, to an unnumbered throng ever increasing with the oncoming years, his governmental theories will be a never-failing source of inspiration; and to the nation the Wilson doctrine is the harbinger, the hope and the salvation for untrammelled forward progress in the field of destiny.The object of these pages shall be to place this man in true perspective before the people whom he loved and in whose service he died. In order to do so, the writer will not confine himself to the enunciation of his personal views, lest in the recital Wilson suffer; but, with "wealth of quotation," he will draw from the opinions of that little band of constitutional lawyers and his- torians who, in the examination of the great problems of gov- ernmental action, are never satisfied until they have mastered the principles and sought the sources, and who, in seeking, found James Wilson, luminous, transcendant, constitution-maker, nation-builder; the intellectual giant, in whose train have followed that great galaxy of constitution interpreters Hamilton, Jay, Webster, Bradley, Taney and, peer of all, John Marshall whose work and whose names are an immortal part of our com- mon heritage. * Dedication of Pennsylvania's new Capitol, October 4th, 1906.

The Moral Sense (Free Press Paperbacks)

The Moral Sense (Free Press Paperbacks)

https://www.amazon.com/Moral-Sense-Free-Press-Paperbacks-ebo...
Are human beings naturally endowed with a conscience? Or is morality artificially acquired through social pressure and instruction? Most people assume that modern science proves the latter. Further, most of our current social policies are based upon this “scientific” view of the sources of morality. In this book, however, James Q. Wilson seeks to reconcile traditional ideas with a range of important empirical research into the sources of human behavior over the last fifty years. Marshalling evidence drawn from diverse scientific disciplines, including animal behavior, anthropology, evolutionary theory, biology, endocrinology, brain science, genetics, primatology, education and psychology, Wilson shows that the facts about the origin and development of moral reasoning are not at odds with traditional views predating Freud, Darwin and Marx. Our basic sense of right and wrong actually does have a biological and behavioral origin. This “moral sense” arises from the infant’s innate sociability, though it must also be nurtured by parental influence. Thus, this book revives ancient traditions of moral and ethical argument that go back to Aristotle, and reunifies the separate streams of philosophical and scientific knowledge that for so long were regarded as unbridgeable.

The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America

The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America

https://www.amazon.com/Earth-Shall-Weep-History-America-eboo...
Now available in paperback, The Earth Shall Weep is a groundbreaking, critically acclaimed history of the Native American peoples. Combining traditional historical sources with new insights from ethnography, archaeology, Indian oral tradition, and years of his original research, James Wilson weaves a historical narrative that puts Native Americans at the center of their struggle for survival against the tide of invading European peoples and cultures. The Earth Shall Weep charts the collision course between Euro-Americans and the indigenous people of the continent, from the early interactions at English settlements on the Atlantic coast, through successive centuries of encroachment and outright warfare, to the new political force of the Native American activists of today. It is a clash that would ultimately result in the reduction of the Native American population from an estimated seven to ten million to 250,000 over a span of four hundred years, and change the face of the continent forever. A tour de force of narrative history, The Earth Shall Weep is a powerful, moving telling of the story of Native Americans that has become the new standard for future work in the field.

Thinking About Crime

Thinking About Crime

https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-About-Crime-James-Wilson-ebo...
As crime rates inexorably rose during the tumultuous years of the 1970s, disputes over how to handle the violence sweeping the nation quickly escalated. James Q. Wilson redefined the public debate by offering a brilliant and provocative new argument—that criminal activity is largely rational and shaped by the rewards and penalties it offers—and forever changed the way Americans think about crime. Now with a new foreword by the prominent scholar and best-selling author Charles Murray, this revised edition of Thinking About Crime introduces a new generation of readers to the theories and ideas that have been so influential in shaping the American justice system.

Crime and Public Policy

Crime and Public Policy

https://www.amazon.com/Crime-Public-Policy-James-Wilson-eboo...
Crime in the United States has fluctuated considerably over the past thirty years, as have the policy approaches to deal with it. During this time criminologists and other scholars have helped to shed light on the role of incarceration, prevention, drugs, guns, policing, and numerous other aspects to crime control. Yet the latest research is rarely heard in public discussions and is often missing from the desks of policymakers. This book accessibly summarizes the latest scientific information on the causes of crime and evidence about what does and does not work to control it.Thoroughly revised and updated, this new version of Crime and Public Policy will include twenty chapters and five new substantial entries. As with previous editions, each essay reviews the existing literature, discusses the methodological rigor of the studies, identifies what policies and programs the studies suggest, and then points to policies now implemented that fail to reflect the evidence. The chapters cover the principle institutions of the criminal justice system (juvenile justice, police, prisons, probation and parole, sentencing), how broader aspects of social life inhibit or encourage crime (biology, schools, families, communities), and topics currently generating a great deal of attention (criminal activities of gangs, sex offenders, prisoner reentry, changing crime rates).With contributions from trusted, leading scholars, Crime and Public Policy offers the most comprehensive and balanced guide to how the latest and best social science research informs the understanding of crime and its control for policymakers, community leaders, and students of crime and criminal justice.
