The Encyclopedia of New York State is one of the most complete works on the Empire State to be published in a half-century.

The Encyclopedia is packed with details in fields ranging from sociology and the arts to geography and history. Entries by experts chronicle New York's rich cultural, ethnic, and political history with a cornucopia of subjects from environmentalism to higher education to railroads, weaving the state's diverse regions and peoples into one idea of New York State. Lavishly illustrated with 500 photographs and figures, 120 maps, and 140 tables, the Encyclopedia is key to understanding the state's past, present, and future. It is a crucial reference for students, teachers, historians, and business people, for New Yorkers of all persuasions, and for anyone interested in discovering more about New York State.

Spanning all fields of human effort-from literature and the arts to philosophy and science-and touching on topics from multiple areas of mythological study, including Norse, Greek, and Roman, this extraordinary reference guide continues to be one of the most thorough and accurate collections of biographical data ever created. Combining mythological and biographical entries into a single, comprehensive list, and incorporating a unique system of indicating pronunciation and orthography, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology offers readers an unparalleled record of historically significant identities, from the obscure and forgotten newsmakers of yesteryear to the highly celebrated shapers of history that remain influential today. Volume II (CLU-HYS) of this exquisite four-volume set includes information on such names as Clytemnestra, Constantine the Great, Charles Dickens, Stoic philosopher Euphrates, English author John Fox, Galileo, Hercules, and many more. JOSEPH THOMAS (1811-1891) also wrote A Comprehensive Medical Dictionary, various pronouncing vocabularies of biographical and geographical names, and a system of pronunciation for Lippincott's Pronouncing Gazetteer of the World.

Genre: Fiction

Rowland Mallet, ein wohlhabender Kunstliebhaber, wird zum Mäzen des jungen Bildhauers Roderick Hudson, den er in der Enge der amerikanischen Provinz entdeckt und mit nach Europa nimmt. In der ersten Begeisterung über die Kunstwerke Roms und die belebende Atmosphäre der Stadt gelingen Roderick Hudson einige vielversprechende Skulpturen. Doch dann erstarrt er immer mehr in Eitelkeit und Selbstherrlichkeit und sucht Zerstreuung im gesellschaftlichen Leben Roms und auf Reisen. Er verliebt sich leidenschaftlich in die extravagante, ehrgeizige Christina Light, die jedoch bald seine Charakterschwächen erkennt und ihn zurückweist. Rowland Mallet, der sich durch Rodericks selbstzerstörerische Entwicklung in seinen Erwartungen in den jungen Künstler enttäuscht sieht, versucht noch vermittelnd einzugreifen; er läßt Rodericks Mutter und Braut aus Amerika kommen. Aber Roderick Hudsons moralischer und künstlerischer Verfall ist nicht mehr aufzuhalten.
