The New York Times Bestseller *One of Rolling Stone's 10 Best Music Books of 2015* An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write. Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, to producing Del Shannon, backing Bob Dylan, putting together a band with George Harrison, Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, making records with Johnny Cash, and sending well more than a dozen of his own celebrated recordings high onto the charts, Tom Petty's story has all the drama of a rock and roll epic. Now in his mid-sixties, still making records and still touring, Petty, known for his reclusive style, has shared with Warren Zanes his insights and arguments, his regrets and lasting ambitions, and the details of his life on and off the stage. This is a book for those who know and love the songs, from "American Girl" and "Refugee" to "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," and for those who want to see the classic rock and roll era embodied in one man's remarkable story. Dark and mysterious, Petty manages to come back, again and again, showing us what the music can do and where it can take us.
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 1,5, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Volkskunde/Kulturgeschichte), Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Kulturkontakt: Die Engländer und die gälische Kultur, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Normalfall wird unter Reisen die Spannweite der Abwesenheit vom Wohnort verstanden. Reisemotive und Reisebedeutungen dagegen gibt es unterschiedlich viele. Sei es nur zur privaten Nutzung, um einem Publikum nach der Rückkehr zu begeistern. Das Reisen trug zum beruflichen Weiterkommen bei oder sollte zur Reifung des Reisenden beitragen. In jedem Fall erschien es sinnvoll, wie es die Historie zeigt, Reiseberichte anzulegen. Reiseberichte gehören zu einer der ältesten Literaturen, z. B. schrieb schon Odysseus über seine Reiseerlebnisse.1 Ab Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts änderte und erweiterte sich das geografische Wissen der Menschen. Die Welt wurde als ein Ganzes betrachtet, mit allen Meeren zusammen hängend. Es begann das Zeitalter der Entdeckungen. Die verschiedenen Gründe für den Entdeckungsdrang der Europäer waren z. B. Bevölkerungsverluste, Humanismus, wirtschaftliche Interessen und sie reisten auch aus religiösen Faktoren.2 Beide letzteren waren auch ausschlaggebend für die Engländer mit Blick auf Irland. Dennoch hatten die Reisenden, geprägt von der mittelalterlichen Literatur Schwierigkeiten die neuen Welten zu beschreiben. Ihre Denkformen wurden an das Fremde herangetragen und man konnte schwerlich zwischen fiktional, bzw. vorstrukturiertem Denken und der Realität unterscheiden. 3 Aber, dass diese Reiseberichte unersetzliche Erkenntnisobjekte für Historiker geworden sind, wundert nicht, versuchen sie doch die Realität vergangener Zeiten zu erlesen. Auch die Reiseberichte des 17. Jahrhunderts der Engländer über Irland waren von subjektiven Ansichten durchzogen. Die vorliegende Arbeit, die einen Reisebericht von William Petty behandelt, versucht über das Bild der Iren aus der Sicht der Engländer Aufschluss zu geben. Welche Kulturstände aufeinander stießen. Zu einer Zeit des politischen Umschwungs in England geschrieben, ist es herauszufinden, ob es neuzeitliche Ansichtspunkte bzw. Beschreibungspunkte über die Iren gab, um die realistischen Verhältnisse heraus zu kristallisieren, sowie die eher subjektiven Ansichten für England und näher für den Verfasser, z. B. in wirtschaftlicher Hinsicht. Ebenso stellt sich die Frage, welche Rolle der unterschiedlichen Konfessionalität zu teil kam. 1 Vgl. Maurer, Michael, Vorlesung: Geschichte des Reisens.

Low Law and the Sessions System in Charlotte County, New Brunswick, 1785-1867
Author: Paul Craven
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
Until the late nineteenth-century, the most common form of local government in rural England and the British Empire was administration by amateur justices of the peace: the sessions system. Petty Justice uses an unusually well-documented example of the colonial sessions system in Loyalist New Brunswick to examine the role of justices of the peace and other front-line low law officials like customs officers and deputy land surveyors in colonial local government. Using the rich archival resources of Charlotte County, Paul Craven discusses issues such as the impact of commercial rivalries on local administration, the role of low law officials in resolving civil and criminal disputes and keeping the peace, their management of public works, social welfare, and liquor regulation, and the efforts of grand juries, high court judges, colonial governors, and elected governments to supervise them. A concluding chapter explains the demise of the sessions system in Charlotte County in the decade of Confederation.
Winner of the Women's History Network Book Prize, 2007 A large proportion of late medieval people were accused of some kind of misdemeanour in borough, manorial or ecclesiastical courts at some stage in their lives. The records of these courts bring us as close to ordinary townspeople and villagers as it is possible to get, and show what behaviour was considered reprehensible in men and women. This book is the first full-length study of gender and crime in late medieval England. Based on a meticulous analysis of the records of local jurisdictions in Kent, and bringing in a wealth of evidence from numerous individual cases, it shows how charges against women typically differed from those against men, and how contemporary assumptions and fears about masculinity and femininity were both reflected and reinforced by the local courts.
