In 1621, fifty-six English women crossed the Atlantic in response to the Virginia Company of London's call for maids 'young and uncorrupt' to make wives for the planters of its new colony in Virginia. The English had settled there just fourteen years previously and the company hoped to root its unruly menfolk to the land with ties of family and children. While the women travelled of their own accord, the company was in effect selling them at a profit for a bride price of 150 lbs of tobacco for each woman sold. The rewards would flow to investors in the near-bankrupt company. But what did the women want from the enterprise? Why did they agree to make the dangerous crossing to a wild and dangerous land, where six out of seven European settlers died within their first few years - from dysentery, typhoid, salt water poisoning and periodic skirmishes with the native population? And what happened to them in the end? Delving into company records and original sources on both sides of the Atlantic, Jennifer Potter tracks the women's footsteps from their homes in England to their new lives in Virginia. Giving voice to these forgotten women of America's early history, she triumphantly invites the reader to journey alongside the brides as they travel into a perilous and uncertain future.

In 1656, a planter in colonial Maryland tortured and killed one of his slaves, an Angolan man named Antonio who refused to work the fields. Over three centuries later, a Detroit labor organizer named Simon Owens watched as strikebreakers wielding bats and lead pipes beat his fellow autoworkers for protesting their inhumane working conditions. Antonio and Owens had nothing in common but the color of their skin and the economic injustices they battled—yet the former is what defines them in America’s consciousness. In A Dreadful Deceit, award-winning historian Jacqueline Jones traces the lives of these two men and four other African Americans to reveal how the concept of race has obscured the factors that truly divide and unite us. Expansive, visionary, and provocative, A Dreadful Deceit explodes the pernicious fiction that has shaped American history.

Dieses eBook: "Der grüne Pompadour" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Aus dem Buch: „...Gott allein weiß, wie sehr ich sie geliebt habe, meine schöne aber leider so widerstandslose Lili, die ihrer Mutter gegenüber keinen Willen hatte und vor ihr in einer Furcht lebte, die ich zwar nicht begriff, deren Resultat ich aber greifbar vor mir hatte. Das war sozusagen »zwischen den Schlachten« dieser furchtbaren Basartage, an denen das arme, gequälte Wesen in griechischer Tracht, schön wie ein Traum aussehend, in einem Zelte stehen und Blumen verkaufen mußte. Am dritten Tage früh erhielt ich des Rätsels Lösung: die Verlobungsanzeige Lilis mit dem Grafen Meersburg, dem steinreichen Majoratsherrn. Er hatte ihr schon lange in seiner faden Weise den Hof gemacht, aber ich hatte nur lächelnd zugeschaut, weil ich ja meiner Sache so ungeheuer sicher war.“ Eufemia von Adlersfeld-Ballestrem (1854-1941) war eine deutsche Schriftstellerin. Ihre Liebes- und Kriminal-, gelegentlich sogar ihre humoristischen Romane bezogen dabei ihre Spannung oft aus geschickt eingesetzten phantastischen Motiven, die Beiwerk sein können, aber auch handlungsrelevant.
