Détails: Hundreds of thousands of British and Irish men, women, and children crossed the Atlantic during the seventeenth century as indentured servants. Many had agreed to serve for four years, but large numbers had been trafficked or “spirited away” or were sent forcibly by government agencies as criminals, political rebels, or destitute vagrants. In Indentured Servitude Anna Suranyi provides new insight into the lives of these people. The British government, Suranyi argues, profited by supplying labour for the colonies, removing unwanted populations, and reducing incarceration costs within Britain. In addition, it was believed that indigents, especially destitute children, benefited morally from being placed in indenture. Capitalist entrepreneurs who were influential at the highest levels of government made their fortunes from Atlantic trade in goods, indentured servants, and slaves, and their participation in the servant trade contributed to the commercialization of criminal justice. Suranyi breaks new ground in showing how indentured servitude was challenged: once in the colonies, indentured servants adapted resourcefully to their circumstances and rebelled against unfair conditions and abuse by suing their masters, by running away, or through outright revolt. Emerging ideas about race and citizenship led to vehement public debate about the conditions of indentured servants and the ethics of indenture itself, prompting legislation that aimed to curb the worst excesses while slavery continued to expand unchecked.

Détails: Focusing primarily on three early modern French authors, this book explores the erotics and politics of "voluntary servitude" in classical antiquity and the early modern period. These authors-Étienne de La Boétie, Michel de Montaigne, and Marie de Gournay-pursue related inquiries into voluntary servitude and self-control in marriage, friendship, pederasty and politics. Marc Schachter shows how Montaigne's intimate textual relationship with La Boétie provides him the opportunity to honor his beloved friend while transforming many of his ideas. Similarly, Marie de Gournay's editorial voluntary servitude to Montaigne provides her the occasion to authorize her own practice as a woman author and to engage critically with Montaigne's ideas even as she celebrates her friendship with him. Schachter's analyses are pursued particularly through the lens of Michel Foucualt's concept of governmentality which, like voluntary servitude, operates on three interrelated scales: self-control, control in interpersonal relationships, and political control. Schachter argues that thinking about the function of voluntary servitude through the lens of governmentality leads to a more nuanced understanding both of Foucault's late work and of the transformational possibilities offered by friendship and voluntary servitude in early modern France.

Détails: Steve Schwoeble is a greedy and arrogant billionaire, telecommunications tycoon and one of Hollywood’s most celebrated filmmakers. But unbeknownst to those who know him in that light, he is also a ruthless California mafia boss, and the head of a powerful transnational sex trafficking criminal organization that imports women from Asia and Europe. The tentacles of his empire stretch from as far away as Israel to the Cayman Islands. Someone is trying to assassinate the top echelon in Steve’s organization, and they have no idea who is behind it. Felipe Santos, a feared, no-nonsense cop leads the investigation into Steve’s dealings. After Steve is badly wounded in an assassination attempt, he flees to Grand Cayman to recuperate at his luxurious canal front home. Superintendent Lascelles Bodden keeps him under surveillance for the FBI, who is steadily building a case against him and his cronies, but someone else is equally determined to kill him and bring his powerful organization to its knees.

Détails: REVEALING THE ONLY "PROCLAMATION OF FREEDOM" DOCUMENT (Emancipation Proclamation if you will) FOR WHITE SURVIVORS OF THE 1st WHITE SLAVE COLONY (IN VIRGINIA) THAT WAS OFFICIALLY ISSUED IN 1618 AD, BUT IT WAS DELIVERED IN 1619 AD. AND NOW, 400 YEARS LATER WITH TENS OF MILLIONS OF WHITE DESCENDANTS (OUR WHITE BROTHERS & SISTERS AND FELLOW AMERICANS), WITH US ALL CO-EXISTING AND HAVING THE ABILITY TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION ABOUT REVEALING THIS NOTED TRUTH, WE CAN ATTEMPT TO PLANT SEEDS FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS TO HELP HEAL THE MENTAL ILLNESS CALLED RACISM IN AMERICA, FOR THAT MATTER, GLOBALLY. WE BELIEVE THAT PLANTING SUCH SEEDS WILL ALLOW THE OLDER GENERATION TO DISPEL FALSE PRETEXTS PROMOTED ABOUT SLAVERY IN AMERICA WITHIN OUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. IF THIS IS ATTEMPTED HENCEFORTH, TRUTH WILL EVENTUALLY REFLECT ITSELF THROUGH MOVIES/FILMS/LITERATURE/COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA ABOUT THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD FOR WHITE SLAVERY IN AMERICA FOR OVER 240 YEARS—1620 AD UNTIL PRESIDENT LINCOLN ISSUED THE 1863 EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION TO ABOLISH SLAVERY FOR WHITES & BLACKS … HENCE, WHAT SHORTLY FOLLOWED IN 1865 WAS THE 13TH AMENDMENT OF THE US CONSTITUTION THAT LEGALLY ABOLISHED SLAVERY AND INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE FOR THOSE WHO ESPOUSED SUCH STATUS. Go back in history with us over 400 years (1607 AD) to the 1st established English Colony in America, Virginia when the 1st system for the Institution of Indentured Servitude was attempted and failed in the New World but did succeed during the 1st Period of this launched institution that began in 1620 AD. From our formative years, however, we all learned that these Indentured Servants came from different parts of Europe to settle in the New World; but little did we know this was the 1st European Slave Colony in Virginia that lasted until 1619 AD. How do we know? Because 12-years later, in 1619, a 12-page document considered the Survivors' "Proclamation of Freedom" (Emancipation Proclamation if you will) presented in our 2nd eBook called "Novemberteenth / Aprilteenth" has been revealed, which makes this document to-date, 399 years old. And … we included a sneak preview of our Screenplay timeline for this 1st 12-year period (1607 to 1619 AD). After you read this scenario and hear some of the actual words of those who survived the 3 consecutive years of starvation (1607 to 1610) and 9 consecutive years of slavery (1610 to 1619) of these 1st 12-years--which is also presented in our 2nd eBook--challenge yourself to determine whether you can answer the 36 questions posed ... So, join us in this quest as we take a giant leap into: 1. Who really was the Indentured Servant in America for over 240 years [which had a double meaning, i.e. certain individuals in the colonies were subject to labor contracts while others were subject to the conditions of slavery--which equated itself to the process of underground White Slavery for over 240 years (based on authentic documentation)]; and 2. The 5 designated periods that evolved and represented the Institution of Indentured Servitude that later followed this 1st 12-year period of the Virginia Colony, 1607 to 1619 AD. Beyond those, find out more about from Whom, When, Why, and How the word "Negro" and its Cousin the "N" word got their negative wings for flight that is 600 years old. And last, learn why Nubian Pageant Systems called this Cultural Theme: “Indentured Servitude Unchained”

Détails: This book provides the most comprehensive history of German migration to North America for the period 1709 to 1920 than has been done before. Employing state-of-the-art methodological and statistical techniques, the book has two objectives. First he explores how the recruitment and shipping markets for immigrants were set up, determining what the voyage was like in terms of the health outcomes for the passengers, and identifying the characteristics of the immigrants in terms of family, age, and occupational compositions and educational attainments. Secondly he details how immigrant servitude worked, by identifying how important it was to passenger financing, how shippers profited from carrying immigrant servants, how the labor auction treated immigrant servants, and when and why this method of financing passage to America came to an end.

Détails: Disability Servitude traces the history and legacy of institutional peonage. For over a century, public and private institutions across the country relied on the unpaid, forced labor of their residents and patients in order to operate. This book describes the work they performed, in some cases for ten or more hours a day, seven days a week, and the lawsuits they brought in an effort to get paid. The impact of those lawsuits included accelerated de-institutionalization, but they fell short of obtaining equal and fair compensation for their plaintiffs. Instead, thousands of resident and patient-workers were replaced by non-disabled employees. Disability Servitude includes a detailed history of longstanding problems with the oversight of the sub-minimum wage provision in the Fair Labor Standards Act oversight. Beckwith shows how that history has resulted in the continued segregation and exploitation of over 400,000 workers with disabilities in sheltered workshops that legally pay far less than minimum wage.

Détails: This book examines how language is a central resource in transforming migrant women into transnational domestic workers. Focusing on the migration of women from the Philippines to Singapore, the book unpacks why and how language is embedded in the infrastructure of transnational labor migration that links migrant-sending and migrant-receiving countries. It sheds light on the everyday lives of transnational domestic workers and how they draw on their linguistic repertoires, and in particular on English, as they cross geographical and social spaces. By showing how the transnational mobility of labor is dependent on the selection and performance of particular assemblages of linguistic resources that index migrants as labor and not as people, the book provides a powerful lens with which to examine how migration contributes to relationships of inequality and how such inequalities are produced and challenged on the terrain of language.

Détails: Examining, for the first time, the compositions of Johann Joseph Fux in relation to his contemporaries Bach and Handel, The Musical Discourse of Servitude presents a new theory of the late baroque musical imagination. Author Harry White contrasts musical "servility" and "freedom" in his analysis, with Fux tied to the prevailing servitude of the day's musical imagination, particularly the hegemonic flowering of North Italian partimento method across Europe. In contrast, both Bach and Handel represented an autonomy of musical discourse, with Bach exhausting generic models in the mass and Handel inventing a new genre in the oratorio. A potent critique of Lydia Goehr's seminal The Imaginary Museum of Musical Works, The Musical Discourse of Servitude draws on Goehr's formulation of the "work-concept" as an imaginary construct which, according to Goehr, is an invention of nineteenth-century reception history. White locates this concept as a defining agent of automony in Bach's late works, and contextualized the "work-concept" itself by exploring rival concepts of political, religious, and musical authority which define the European musical imagination in the first half of the eighteenth century. A major revisionist statement about the musical imagination in Western art music, The Musical Discourse of Servitude will be of interest to scholars of the Baroque, particularly of Bach and Handel.

Détails: In African-American Servitude and Historical Imaginings Margaret Jordan initiates a new way of looking at the African American presence in American literature. Twentieth-century retrospective fiction is the site for this compelling investigation about how African American servants and slaves have enormous utility as cultural artifacts, objects to be acted upon, agents in place, or agents provocateurs. Jordan argues that those who even those seemingly innocuous, infrequently visible, or silent servants are vehicles through which history, culture and social values and practices are cultivated and perpetuated, challenged and destabilized. Jordan demonstrates how African American servants and servitude are strategically deployed and engaged in ways which encourage a rethinking of the past. She examines the ideological underpinnings of retrospective fiction by writers who are clearly social theorists and philosophers. Jordan contends that they do not read or misread history, they imagine history as meditations on social realties and reconstruct the past as a way to confront the present.

Détails: Emancipation brought an end to many of the evils of slavery, but it did not do away with involuntary servitude in the South. Even during Reconstruction, state legislatures passed laws that bound laborers to the landowner with a nearly unbreakable tie -- which still chains many a rural black to what a 1914 Supreme Court ruling called an "ever-turning wheel of servitude." Daniel Novak shows how federal, state, and local regulations combined in an undisguised effort to keep southern agriculture supplied with black labor. A freedman who did not immediately enter into a labor contract was subject to arrest as a vagrant. Once a contract was agreed upon, it was a criminal offense for a laborer to fail to carry it out, no matter how unfair the terms might be. If, as was almost inevitable, the freedman fell into debt to the landowner, he could be kept in service until repayment-and exorbitant interest rates and judicious bookkeeping could often postpone that day indefinitely. Novak traces the sporadic efforts of the federal government to do away with this kind of peonage. In studying the details of the legal basis for peonage in the South, he breaks new ground. The institution has aroused surprisingly little interest in the past; this compelling account should do much to establish that peonage is one of the most severe and widespread violations of civil rights in the nation.

Détails: The Authors experience dealing with the IRS and Congress has led him to know that most Americans earn insufficient income to have a tax liability. The current taxing system, Title 26 United States Code, is all based on semantics, not fact of law. This experience culminated with the IRS placing levies and liens against him and his wife. He knew the IRS had no authority to use these penalties and set out on a journey to prove this true. This book documents that most people who work in the private sector of the economy do not owe the Federal or State income tax, are not subject to levies or liens and have a right to challenge Congress and demand their monies returned. (The statute of limitations for getting you money back is 3 years) What the IRS is doing, with Congress’s blessing is fraud. The author hereby offers Congress and/or Treasury the opportunity to rebut the documented facts in this book. An open forum in the media, preferably the Chris Mathews or Ed Shultz shows on the MSNBC Network would allow the American public the opportunity to hear the truth concerning their taxes. I request your help in making this happen by contacting your representative.

Détails: The history of domestic labor markets in 19th century America From the era of Irish Famine migration to the passage of quota restrictions in the 1920s, household domestic service was the single largest employer of women in the United States, and, in California, a pivotal occupation for male Chinese immigrants. Servants of both sexes accounted for eight percent of the total labor force – about one million people. In Brokering Servitude, Andrew Urban offers a history of these domestic servants, focusing on how Irish immigrant women, Chinese immigrant men, and American-born black women navigated the domestic labor market in the nineteenth century – a market in which they were forced to grapple with powerful racial and gendered discrimination. Through vivid examples like how post-famine Irish immigrants were enlisted to work as servants in exchange for relief, this book examines how race, citizenship, and the performance of domestic labor relate to visions of American expansion. Because household service was undesirable work stigmatized as unfree, brokers were integral to steering and compelling women, men, and children into this labor. By the end of the nineteenth century, the federal government became a major broker of domestic labor through border controls, and immigration officials became important actors in dictating which workers were available for domestic labor and under what conditions they could be contracted. Drawing on a range of sources – from political cartoons to immigrant case files to novels – Brokering Servitude connects Asian immigration, European immigration, and internal, black migration. The book ultimately demonstrates the ways in which employers pitted these groups against each other in competition for not only servant positions, but also certain forms of social inclusion, offering important insights into an oft-overlooked area of American history.

Détails: For many American Catholics in the twentieth-century the face of the Church was a woman's face. After the Second World War, as increasing numbers of baby boomers flooded Catholic classrooms, the Church actively recruited tens of thousands of young women as teaching sisters. In Into Silence and Servitude Brian Titley delves into the experiences of young women who entered Catholic religious sisterhoods at this time. The Church favoured nuns as teachers because their wageless labour made education more affordable in what was the world's largest private school system. Focusing on the Church's recruitment methods Titley examines the idea of a religious vocation, the school settings in which nuns were recruited, and the tactics of persuasion directed at both suitable girls and their parents. The author describes how young women entered religious life and how they negotiated the sequence of convent "formation stages," each with unique challenges respecting decorum, autonomy, personal relations, work, and study. Although expulsions and withdrawals punctuated each formation stage, the number of nuns nationwide continued to grow until it reached a pinnacle in 1965, the same year that Catholic schools achieved their highest enrolment. Based on extensive archival research, memoirs, oral history, and rare Church publications, Into Silence and Servitude presents a compelling narrative that opens a window on little-known aspects of America’s convent system.
