A lively and provocative account of the arts in Britain, Building Jerusalem suggests that even after fifty years of state planning of Britain's "leisure industries" the country is nevertheless approaching the millennium in a state of cultural confusion. Drawing on a wealth of historical material from Scotland, Wales, and English provincial towns, as well as the more familiar London story, Pick and Anderton contend that the original meaning of cultural language has been distorted by the fashionable phrase-making of modern government agencies, and by the inaccurate and misleading view of cultural history that is constantly presented to the public. The authors unfold fascinating stories of Britain's cultural past, before state support of the arts. They vividly relate the great changes wrought by the industrial revolution and by the development of the twentieth century media and describe the long history of Church and Royal support for the arts, as well as the long periods when all of the arts

Kinship is at the heart of European society, sharing with the state responsibility for welfare and social reproduction. But the workings of kinship and their connection to state policies remain controversial. Received theories have had to be revised in the light of social and demographic change and accumulating evidence of long-standing cultural differences. --

Ebenezer Sibly M.D. was the inventor of Dr. Sibly's Reanimating Solar Tincture- - a panacea advertised for its many applications, including restoring the newly dead to life if applied promptly and according to the doctor's specifications. It was therefore difficult to explain why the doctorhimself died before he turned fifty, surrounded by dozens of bottles of the stuff. Ebenezer's brother Manoah was asked to execute his will, which urged the executors to find the funds to continue manufacture of Solar Tincture, and left legacies for multiple and concurrent wives as well as anillegitimate son whose name Ebenezer could not recall. Manoah Sibly, a minister responsible for shepherding the recently established New Church into solid bourgeois respectability, found his brother's record of financial and moral indiscretions so upsetting that he immediately resigned hisexecutorship. Ebenezer's death in 1799 brought a premature conclusion to a colorfully chaotic life; one lived on the fringes of various fascinating and interconnected esoteric subcultures meandering through late-eighteenth century London. The Siblys were neither rich nor famous, nor were they desperate criminals,and thus it is their ordinariness that makes them such valuable filters through which to view the era in which they lived. Drawing on such sources as ratebooks and pollbooks, personal letters and published sermons, burial registers and horoscopes, Susan Sommers has woven together an engagingmicrohistory that offers useful revisions to existing scholarly accounts of brothers Ebenezer and Manoah, while placing the entire Sibly family firmly in the esoteric byways of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Their myriad personal connections and professional activities provide asingular insight into how various esoteric trends in late-eighteenth century fascination and belief affected the lives of people who lived just outside our usual historical range of vision.
