From admired historian—and coiner of one of feminism's most popular slogans—Laurel Thatcher Ulrich comes an exploration of what it means for women to make history. In 1976, in an obscure scholarly article, Ulrich wrote, "Well behaved women seldom make history." Today these words appear on t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, greeting cards, and all sorts of Web sites and blogs. Ulrich explains how that happened and what it means by looking back at women of the past who challenged the way history was written. She ranges from the fifteenth-century writer Christine de Pizan, who wrote The Book of the City of Ladies, to the twentieth century’s Virginia Woolf, author of A Room of One's Own. Ulrich updates their attempts to reimagine female possibilities and looks at the women who didn't try to make history but did. And she concludes by showing how the 1970s activists who created "second-wave feminism" also created a renaissance in the study of history. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A selection from the admired history Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History, the story of how one of feminism’s most popular slogans came to life. In the opening paragraph of an obscure 1976 scholarly article investigating the prim and proper women celebrated in Puritan funeral sermons, Harvard professor Laurel Thatcher Ulrich penned the phrase, “Well-behaved women seldom make history.” Since then, Ulrich’s slogan has been put on bumper stickers, T-shirts, and tote bags, in greeting cards and political speeches, entering the cultural consciousness in all sorts of unexpected ways. In “The Slogan,” Ulrich gives a brief history of her much-quoted words, and sketches out a primer on feminism today and the way it continues to make history. An eBook short.

Schicksalhafte Begegnungen Charlotte Baird interessiert sich mehr für Fotografie als dafür, einen Ehemann zu finden. Doch als der charmante Bay Middleton auftaucht, verliebt sie sich in ihn. Er zählt zu den besten Reitern Englands, ist jedoch mittellos und nicht von Stand. Bay scheint der Einzige zu sein, der in Charlotte nicht nur die reiche junge Erbin sieht, sondern ihre unkonventionellen Ansichten und ihren feinen Witz zu schätzen weiß. Als die legendäre Pytchley-Jagd ansteht, erhält Bay einen Auftrag, um den ihn alle beneiden: Er soll Kaiserin Sisi auf der Jagd begleiten. Charlottes Freude darüber schwindet schnell. Denn die Kaiserin gilt nicht umsonst als die schönste Frau ihrer Zeit. Und sie ist Bay in einer Weise zugetan, die die Zukunft aller bedrohen könnte. «Exzellent und absolut fesselnd. Höchst unterhaltsam.» (The Times) «Eine überaus vergnügliche Lektüre.» (Mail on Sunday) «Ein bezaubernder, wunderschön geschriebener Pageturner.» (Publishers Weekly) «Zeitlos, spannend, absolut überzeugend. Ein großartiger Roman.» (Richard and Judy Book Club)

'And I quote...'

A history of using other people's words

Quotations are an essential part of the fabric of the language. In And I quote, Elizabeth Knowles draws on her experience editing the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations and employs a wide repertoire of examples, ranging from the classical canon to contemporary popular culture, to illuminate just how and why we quote. Her investigation focuses on how we find, choose, and use quotations in 21st century English, but it also leads her back in time to follow the journeys taken by individual quotes, as their meaning changes subtly - and sometimes not so subtly - over the decades and in many cases the centuries. In following the often-surprising stories of individual quotations, we gain an understanding of how they establish themselves, and to what degree they can develop a life independent of their original coinage. Everyone has their own quotations 'vocabulary', and each reader of the book will think of further items that they would use and wish to explore, but the journeys mapped here illuminate the many fascinating ways in which quotations have embedded themselves in the language, from the earliest dictionaries of quotations to the online world we experience today.
