Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0044
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

This book presents a comparative study of church order in the East and West of the Christian world. It deals with the development of canon law from the 6th century, the time of Dionysius Exiguus and John Scholastikos, up to the period of Balsamon and Gratian. While the focus is upon Rome and Constantinople, the author includes in his discussion the churches under Islamic rule, in Syria and Persia, and describes the beginnings of Slavonic canon law in Moravia. The issues of church government, the discipline of the clergy (married or celibat...

(P/B) ORIENTPOLITIK, VALUE AND CIVILIZATION
Εκδότης: BERGHAHN BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0658-0022
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

This is the first collection of Franz Steiner's keynote papers on comparative economics and the classification of labor,complemented by major unpublished texts on politics, civilization, and cultural criticism. This enables a complete re-evaluation of Steiner's thought. His ideas on truth, value, and civilization are highly critical of Western culture and offer perhaps the earliest critique of Orientalism in British anthropology. Equally significant is the inclusion of Steiner's unpublished lectures on Aristotle and Simmel, the latter prob...

(H/B) PISCINAE
ARTIFICIAL FISHPONDS IN ROMAN ITALY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0887-0010
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

This book had its beginnings with my work as part of the excavations at Paestum (Italy) carried out by the Universities of Michigan and Perugia (Italy) under the direction of Professors John Griffiths Pedley and Mario Torelli. During four seasons of excavations between 1982 and 1985, I supervised the stratigraphic excavation of a small Roman fishpond which was part of the extramural sanctuary in the localita Santa Venera. Study of this pond fostered my interest in Roman piscinae that culminated in this book. I owe a great deal to my collea...

(P/B) WOMEN'S INFLUENCE ON CLASSICAL CIVILIZATION
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-0485
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Written by an international range of renowned academics, this volume explores how women in antiquity influenced aspects of culture normally though of as male. Looking at politics, economics, science, law and the arts, the contributors examine examples from around the ancient world asking how far traditional definitions of culture describe male spheres of activity, and examining to what extent these spheres were actually created and perpetuated by women. Women’s Influence of Classical Civilization provides students with a valuable wider per...

(P/B) RITUAL AND DOMESTIC LIFE IN PREHISTORIC EUROPE
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-0626
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Richard Bradley argues that for much of the prehistoric period, ritual was not a distinct sphere of activity. Rather, it was the way in which different features of the domestic world were played out with added emphasis until they took on some of the qualities of theatrical performance. Farming, craft production and the occupation of houses are all examples of this ritualising process. Successive chapters discuss the ways in which ritual has been studied and presented, drawing on a series of examples ranging from Greece to Norway and from R...

THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF MAINLAND SOUTHEAST ASIA
FROM 10,000 B.C. TO THE FALL OF ANGKOR
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3933-0844
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Southeast Asia was the scene of one of the world's major civilisations, that of Angkor, until it was sacked in the early fifteenth century. The origins of Angkor were barely known until recent archaeological excavation and field research began to reveal the region's dynamic prehistoric development and to raise new questions to serve in its understanding. This important new synthesis focuses on the social world of early mainland Southeast Asia: Thailand, Vietnam, Kampuchea, Laos and adjacent areas. The book begins when the area was occupied...

(H/B) HUSBANDS, WIVES AND LOVERS
MARRIAGE AND ITS DISCONTENTS IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY FRANCE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0115
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

In this interdisciplinary exploration of the cultural and social history of early 19th-century France, Patricia Mainardi focuses on what was considered a major social problem of the time - adultery. In a period when expectations about marriage were changing, the problems of husbands, wives and lovers became a major theme in theatre, literature and the visual arts. The author demonstrates that this intense interest was historically grounded in the post-revolutionary collision between the new concept of the individual's right to happiness an...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Humans perch homes in trees and float them in lakes; they build them to last for centuries and make them portable enough to carry on their backs; they look for design inspiration in the landscape, in the human body, and in flora and fauna. A Home in the World offers a deep perspective on home design by revealing how different cultures have handled the essential task of building houses that reflect their ideals and values. In a time when home improvement is all the rage, this book sheds light on other, more global, meanings of the word "hom...

(H/B) THE AZTEC WORLD

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0011-0304
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The Aztecs were the last of the great prehispanic civilizations of central Mexico. In their two-hundred-year history, the Aztecs grew from a band of landless nomads to become the rulers of an extensive, dazzling empire. The Aztec capital, Tenochtitlan, was a large, diverse city of 150.000 - 200.000 people. Government officials, military officers, skilled artisans, priests, curers, and cosmopolitan merchants rubbed shoulders in the city streets. Well-ordered roadways and canals linked the capital to agricultural fields in the Aztec heartlan...

(P/B) GENDER IN ANCIENT CYPRUS
NARRATIVES OF SOCIAL CHANGE ON A MEDITERRANEAN ISLAND
Εκδότης: ALTAMIRA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0228-0005
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Archaeological research of the Near East lags behind other regions in its consideration of gender-related issues in its treatment of the past. Diane Bolger's present work contributes to the nascent research that aims to fill this gap. Gender in Ancient Cyprus examines some of the fundamental facets of gender as they intersect with the dynamics of social, political, and economic change in Cyprus, beginning with the earliest traces of human habitation on the island to the final phases of the Bronze Age. The book closely analyzes gender as it...

(P/B) ANCIENT MESOAMERICAN WARFARE

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0228-0006
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The understanding of warfare in ancient Mesoamerica has blossomed in recent years. In this volume, the authors use recent empirical studies to help us understand the patterns and nature of Mesoamerican warfare. Using evidence from ceramics, settlement pattern, epigraphy, ethnohistory, and ethnography, these projects define the martial nature of Mesoamerican societies and link it to ritual, political economy, and other cultural systems. The studies range from preclassic to post-contact and from Belize to Central Mexico. A comparison between...

(H/B) UNDERSTANDING BYZANTIUM
STUDIES IN BYZANTINE HISTORICAL SOURCES

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0046
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Paul Speck's work is acknowledged to be of profound importance for the study of the history and culture of the Byzantine world. If at times controversial, it has proved highly influential in terms of the approaches to be taken to historical and literary sources. For many, however, it has remained largely inaccessible in its original German. To help overcome this, the selection of studies presented here have been specially translated into English. Taken together, they make a substantial contribution to a critical understanding of Byzantine ...

(H/B) CYPRUS AND THE DEVOTIONAL ARTS OF BYZANTIUM
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0050
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Professor Carr is concerned here with the devotional arts of the Byzantine world in the period from the twelfth to the sixteenth century. The first set of studies deals with groups of illuminated manuscripts of the twelfth century, mostly connected with the Eastern Mediterranean, while the second focuses directly on Cyprus and its rich Orthodox visual heritage in the later Middle Ages. As Byzantium's strongest bridgehead to the Crusades and its heir in the Levantine balance of power, the island of Cyprus retains an exceptionally rich legac...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Seven of the twelve studies included in this collection have morphed -generally shortened- into chapters in books since their first publication. Republishing them in their original versions in Ashgate's Variorum series serves a purpose that was brought home to me only in the last stages of reviewing them for republication. (Until then I was pleased simply that anyone might want to read them again.) While they had become a part of a focused thesis in the books in which they later appeared, they seemed to me, looking at them in this collecte...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The subject of the crusades is enormous, covering seven hundred years from the First Crusade (1095-1102) to the fall of Malta (1798) and comprising scholars working on theatres of war, their home fronts and settlements from the Baltic to Africa and from Spain to the Near East and on theology, law, literature, art, numismatics and economic, social, political and military history. Although in almost every one of the many topics into which the subject is divided there is lively debate and development, there has not been a journal dedicated to...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Taking their inspiration from the work of Thomas N. Bisson, to whom the book is dedicated, the contributors to this volume explore the experience of power in medieval Europe: the experience of those who held power, those who helped them wield it, and those who felt its effects. The seventeen essays in the collection, which range geographically from England in the north to Castile in the south, and chronologically from the tenth century to the fourteenth, address a series of specific topics in institutional, social, religious, cultural, and...

(H/B) THE NEW BOSNIAN MOSAIC
IDENTITIES, MEMORIES AND MORAL CLAIMS IN A POST-WAR SOCIETY
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0175
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Since the violent events of the Bosnian war and the revelations of ethnic cleansing that shocked the world in the early 1990s, Bosnia has become a metaphor for the new ethnic nationalisms, for the transformation of warfare in the post-Cold War era, and for new forms of peacekeeping and state-building. This book is unique in offering a re-examination of the Bosnian case with a 'bottom-up' perspective. It gathers together cultural anthropologists and other social scientists to consider the specificities of the Bosnian case. However, the book...
