Описание:In order to arrive at this conclusion Cameron D. Flint examines the history of Scottish mercenary service and Highland clan political loyalties beginning in the late medieval era through the formation of Highland regiments within the British army during the eighteenth century and culminates with these regiments land grant based settlement of North America in the era of the French and Indian War through the War of American Independence. Scottish Highland soldiers have a long history of mercenary service with the armies of Europe and the British diaspora to the New World. This study analyzes the motivations for Scottish outmigration to British North America during the 18th century from both an economic as well as cultural perspective. It also demonstrate that Scottish Highland Loyalism during the War of American Independence was not an abnormality, as some have suggested, but rather a continuation of certain Highland clans and families adherence to a martial code of mercenary service for land. This book proposes that Scots utilized the mercenary profession that had long been a part of their way of life in order to achieve economic security and a degree of cultural preservation.

The Columbia History of the British Novel

Even lesser characters have their hobbyhorses, for example, the grotesque Lismahago, a Scottish soldier scalped by North American Indians, "a tall meager figure, answering with his horse, the description of Don Quixote mounted on Rozinante," whose imagination dwells on his exotic adventures. Of the five main figures, Jery and Matt play off each other: young and old, sensible and irritable, rational and sentimental. Careful scrutiny of Bramble is needed before his type of sentimentalism is understood, but there are also similarities between the two men when it becomes evident that Bramble's earlier libertinism accompanied an ingrained benevolence. Indeed, this coupling of robust sexuality and human goodness seems to be one of Smollett's main themes, and literally produced the hero for whom the book is named, Humphry Clinker-Matt's real son. The remarkable twist in character development is that Bramble's satiric proclivity wanes as he recovers the "good life" (as described above). Smollett suggests through his satiric persona that the healthier we grow, the less we carp about the physical and moral decay surrounding us; and he defines «health» as equally partaking of "mind and body." Still, Smollett's materials did not end here ...»

This study therefore intended to explore and describe the prevalence of bullying behaviour among a sample of grade 8 learners and the prevalence of previous chronic bullying at school among a sample of young adults in the Nelson Mandela Metropole. In addition, the study aimed to explore and describe the possible impact of chronic bullying at school on victims' self-esteem and attachment styles.
