TL;DR: The use of historical sources in geomorphological analysis has had a long tradition in geography and is now undergoing a resurgence as discussed by the authors, and a substantial body of data is available, and the search for it should extend from the National Archives to state and company records and county and city offices.

TL;DR: In a study of an Anglo-American cemetery used between the 1830s and 1907, contemporary mortuary trends and cultural attitudes toward death provide the historical context necessary to interpret variation in mortuary display as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: In this study of an Anglo-American cemetery used between the 1830s and 1907, contemporary mortuary trends and cultural attitudes toward death provide the historical context necessary to interpret variation in mortuary display. Analysis of skeletal remains provides information on dental caries, dental care, and enamel hypoplasia and allows comparison of the relatively high-status Weir family"s health with that of other population samples. Analysis of artifacts reveals four styles of grave decoration attributed not to intrasite status variability but to the appearance, peak, and decline of Victorian era cultural expressions of the "beautification" of death. Within this wider cultural trend, intersite comparisons may be made of status display. The rise and decline of the nineteenth-century ideal of the beautification of death adds vital cultural content for understanding the material expression of an observed process that is a cycle of display.

Abstract: To the SIGSAM Editors: I'm writing this letter to draw SIGSAM reader attention to two active and growing bibliography projects, the TeX User Group bibliography archive at Much of the software that supports the bibliography archive is available at the first two locations above, and important related software can be found at These collections are mirrored nightly to several other sites around the world, and traffic in the bibliography archives alone has averaged l l l M B daily for the past half year. The bibliographies in the archives cover recent literature in linear algebra, numerical analysis, symbolic algebra , electronic document production, fonts, typography, and major parts of computer science; some are subject-specific, some are journal-specific, and in the BibNet Project archive, some are author-specific.

TL;DR: The story of how antebellum America's most important intellectual current, Romanticism, shaped the coming and course of the nation's bloodiest -and most revolutionary - conflict is described in this article.
Abstract: On the cusp of the American Civil War, a new generation of reformers, including Theodore Parker, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Martin Robison Delany and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, took the lead in the antislavery struggle. Frustrated by political defeats, a more aggressive Slave Power, and the inability of early abolitionists like William Lloyd Garrison to rid the nation of slavery, the New Romantics crafted fresh, often more combative, approaches to the peculiar institution. Contrary to what many scholars have argued, however, they did not reject Romantic reform in the process. Instead, the New Romantics roamed widely through Romantic modes of thought, embracing not only the immediatism and perfectionism pioneered by Garrisonians but also new motifs and doctrines, including sentimentalism, self-culture, martial heroism, Romantic racialism, and Manifest Destiny. This book tells the story of how antebellum America's most important intellectual current, Romanticism, shaped the coming and course of the nation's bloodiest - and most revolutionary - conflict.
