Faith in Shakespeare

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/faith-in-shakespeare...
Speculation about Shakespeare's own religious beliefs and responses to the Reformation have dominated discussions of faith in the playwright's work for decades. As a result, we often lose sight of what's truly important-the plays themselves. By fo

Alterations of State: Sacred Kingship in the English Reformation

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/alterations-of-state-sacred...
During the English reformation, writers like John Skelton, Shakespeare, John Milton, and Andrew Marvell grappled with the idea of kingship and royalty, its real presence and figurative power. McCoy explains why religious devotion to the royal person became both more acute and more problematic during England's turbulent seventeenth century.

Beyond Confederation

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/beyond-confederation...
Beyond Confederation scrutinizes the ideological background of the U.S. Constitution, the rigors of its writing and ratification, and the problems it both faced and provoked immediately after ratification. The essays in this collection question much of the heritage of eighteenth-century constitutional thought and suggest that many of the commonly debated issues have led us away from the truly germane questions. The authors challenge many of the traditional generalizations and the terms and scope of that debate as well. The contributors raise fresh questions about the Constitution as it enters its third century. What happened in Philadelphia in 1787, and what happened in the state ratifying conventions? Why did the states-barely-ratify the Constitution? What were Americans of the 1789s attempting to achieve? The exploratory conclusions point strongly to an alternative constitutional tradition, some of it unwritten, much of it rooted in state constitutional law; a tradition that not only has redefined the nature and role of the Constitution but also has placed limitations on its efficacy throughout American history. The authors are Lance Banning, Richard Beeman, Stephen Botein, Richard D. Brown, Richard E. Ellis, Paul Finkelman, Stanley N. Katz, Ralph Lerner, Drew R. McCoy, John M. Murrin, Jack N. Rakove, Janet A. Riesman, and Gordon S. Wood.

The Structure of Political Thought

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-structure-of-political-...
Originally published in 1963, this classic book is a rethinking of the history of Western political philosophy. Charles N.R. McCoy contrasts classical-medieval principles against the "hypotheses" at the root of modern liberalism and modern conservativism. In Part I, "The Classical Christian Tradition from Plato to Aquinas," the author lays the foundation for a philosophical "structure" capable of producing "constitutional liberty." Part II, "The Modern Theory of Politics from Machiavelli to Marx," attempts to show, beginning with Machiavelli, the reversal and destruction of the pre-modern "structure" postulated in Part I. McCoy stresses the great contributions of Aristotle to political thought found in his more familiar Ethics and Politics, but also includes key insights drawn from Metaphysics and Physics. These contributions are developed and perfected, McCoy argues, by Augustine and Aquinas. Two other important features include McCoy's epistemological insights into Plato's work that will be new to many readers and the author's juxtaposition of traditional natural law with "the modernized theory of natural law." The modern account of autonomous natural law, in McCoy's view, helps explain the totalitarian direction of key aspects of modern political thought. This classic volume on the origins of modern philosophical thought remains a standard in the field.

Ranger Winds: The New Breed

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/ranger-winds-the-new-breed...
In their early years, the Texas Rangers protected the settlers from Mexicans and Indians along the river. As time passed, the Rangers became lawmen, protecting Texas after the Civil War. Now, times are changing and the Rangers must change with them. These men are known as the new breed. In this fourth book in the Ranger Winds Series by author E. Richard Womack, the Rangers still mourn the death of Ranger Captain Laughlin McFarland, a legend and the fastest gun in Texas. Captain Jones has been selected to replace McFarland, Dusty McFarland and Boots Law have become Ranger Captains in Uvalde and Abilene respectively, and Ryder McCoy has been assigned to establish a new station in Fort Worth. Newfangled inventions, such as one of the first horseless carriages in Texas, keep the men on their toes-as do a gang of highwaymen and the Pinkerton detective sent to catch them. Although new forensics and techniques have made detection procedures more efficient and simple, there's still plenty to keep the Rangers busy as murder, robberies, rustling, and general mayhem still plague the West as they rush headlong into the twentieth century.

Ornamentalism

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/ornamentalism-the-ar...
A pleasurable and illuminating collection that sets out the important implications of accessories and shows how conspicuous consumption and ornamental ostentation aim to secure status and display affiliation. Ornamentalism explains how accessories carry heavily laden symbolic and mnemonic significance, given their age, beauty, and value." -Richard McCoy, Queens College, Graduate Center, City University of New York "A wealth of information about fascinating stuff. This well-conceived volume features contributions from the most interesting, influential, and deservedly well-known scholars working in the field of early modern material culture." -Steven Mullaney, University of Michigan Renaissance people understood that honor and good graces were marked by being properly attired and by wearing distinctive ornaments. An examination of material life and fashion in the early modern period reveals the crucial role ornaments played in social, political, and cultural negotiations of power and identity. Signs of wealth, possession, and ownership, accessories were wrought from any number of materials, from gold and silver, to pearl, to starch and linen, to metal, to silk, to wax, to bone, to leather, or even human flesh. Accessories could mark or help construct gender; they could be a product of women's work, a symbol of chastity, a sign of good breeding. They could suggest sexual prowess or facilitate seduction, betrothal, and marriage; signal the boundaries between public and private, the conflict between excess and restraint. Ornamentalism is the first book to focus on Renaissance accessories, their histories and meanings. The collection's eminent contributors bring accessories to the center of a discussion about material culture, dress, and adornment, exploring their use, significance, and multiple lives. Defining an "accessory" in the broadest sense-including scents, veils, handkerchiefs, lingerie, codpieces, dildos, jewels, ruffs, wax seals, busk
