This is an exploration into how town dwellers experience their environment in a complicated way. As people in urban milieus relate themselves to the environment, this takes place on many levels, where especially the time level becomes problematic. The urban buildings and settings can be looked upon as a kind of collective history, as carriers or witnesses of times past. But it is only the town dwellers that experience urban time itself, the time they live in, but through their memories also times past. In this past some elements take symbolically dense expressions. Through reliving and narrating their experiences the symbolically important factors in the this urban relationship will be outlined for investigations concerning three towns, Helsinki, the capital, Viborg, the ceded and lost Carelian town, and Jyvaskyla, a town with dense commercial and civilisatory dimensions in the middle of Finland. The symbolic aspects are the kern in all the articles of the book Memories of my Town. The aim of the book and its articles has been to use different theoretical concepts as guidelines in analysing the different narrative texts. Thus the articles are to be seen as independent contributions to the scientific discussion about places, urbanism, memories and narratives. The ethnological outlook is on the other hand an outcome of the joint project Town Dwellers and their Places., whereby the articles substantially relate to one another. Thus the book can also be seen as a joint result of this urban project, which was sponsored by the Finnish Academy. 249pp.

Gilmore, James R.
This is the sequel to "The Rear-Guard of the Revolution", published in 1886 under Gilmore's pseudonym, Edmund Kirke. In the first volume, Gilmore traced the career of John Sevier (1745-1815) the popular Tennessee frontiersman, land speculator, and politician, from his arrival in the Tennessee country in the early 1770s until the end of the American Revolution. In this volume, originally published in 1887, Gilmore continues the chronicle of Sevier's life from 1783 until his death near Fort Decatur, Alabama. 321pp. N.B. Small mark to front board.
