Despite considerable attention from "new left" historians during the s and early s, and more recently from cultural and "public sphere" historians in the mids, the idea of America as a colony and nation deeply infused with a culture of public performance has not been widely demonstrated the way it has been in Britain, France, and Italy.
In this important volume, leading American historians demonstrate that early America was in fact an integral part of a broader transatlantic tradition of popular disturbance and celebration. The first half of the collection focuses on "rough music" and "skimmington"--forms of protest whereby communities publicly regulated the moral order.
The second half considers the use of parades and public celebrations to create national unity and overcome divisions in the young republic.

Twin sisters Sunshine and Margot are as different as chalk and cheese, but what they do have in common is a complete lack of luck when it comes to love. Emotionally stunted by a mother who dropped everything to follow boyfriend after boyfriend, the sisters have ever only had each other for support and to share a pint of post-heartache ice cream.
Born into privilege, obscurity, and even slavery, from the Soong sisters to the Dionne quintuplets, these sisters left their mark on history. They were close in childhood and even married in a dual ceremony in Rivalry between the two set in when they became competing advice columnists. Full disclosure: I have not read this one but I am really looking forward to learning more about the three literary sisters who gave us Jane Eyre , Wuthering Heights, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
The Content and Color of a “Riot” | Sport in American History
The Mitford sisters were notorious figures in the s. The youngest sister, Deborah, became Duchess of Devonshire. After Emancipation, they continued touring by choice and learned to speak several languages. They used some of their earnings to open up a school for African American children. The Soong sisters were highly influential in the political sphere of early 20th century China.
Part of an eccentric family that spoke out against the ruling regime, the two would become the wives of presidents of the Republic of China. This biography of the sisters also traces the history of China through the two world wars. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her sister, Lee Radziwill, had a close but complicated relationship. Both women were at the center of style, fashion, and design during their lifetimes. Three of them were assassinated in and remain symbols of popular and feminist resistance.
