Between Islam and Byzantium: Aght`amar and the Visual Construction of Medieval Armenian Rulership

Lynn Jones

Between Islam and Byzantium: Aght`amar and the Visual Construction of Medieval Armenian Rulership by Lynn JonesBetween Islam and Byzantium provides the first complete analysis of the development of the visual expression of medieval Armenian rulership during the years 884-1045 CE. During this period, the Armenian rulers had loosened the ties that subjected them to the Arab caliphate, but by its end the Byzantine empire had instead become dominant in the region. The influences exerted by these external, opposing powers are a major theme in this book. Lynn Jones re-contextualizes the existing royal art and architecture by integrating analyses of contemporary accounts of ceremonial and royal deeds with fresh...

The Spiritual Expansion of Medieval Latin Christendom: The Asian Missions

James D. Ryan

The Spiritual Expansion of Medieval Latin Christendom: The Asian Missions by James D. RyanDuring the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries religious zeal nourished by the mendicants' sense of purpose motivated Dominican and Franciscan friars to venture far beyond Europe's cultural frontiers to spread their Christian faith into the farthest reaches of Asia. Their incredible journeys were reminiscent of heroic missionary ventures in earlier eras and far more exotic than evangelization during the tenth through twelfth centuries, when the western church Christianized Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. This new mission effort was stimulated by a variety of factors and facilitated by the establishment...

Crusades - Medieval Worlds in Conflict

James L. Naus

Crusades - Medieval Worlds in Conflict by James L. NausThese essays, selected from papers presented at the International Symposium on Crusade Studies in February 2006, represent a stimulating cross-section of this vibrant field. Organized under the rubric of "medieval worlds" the studies in this volume demonstrate the broad interdisciplinary spectrum of modern crusade studies, extending far beyond the battlefield into the conflict and occasional cooperation between the diverse cultures and faiths of the Mediterranean. Although the crusades were a product of medieval Europe, they provide a backdrop against which medieval worlds can be observed to...

The Cultural Politics of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici

Konrad Eisenbichler

The Cultural Politics of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici by Konrad EisenbichlerWhen he suddenly came to power in Italy in 1537, the young Duke Cosimo I de' Medici amazed friends and foes alike with his ability to extricate himself from mortal danger, affirm his authority and revive a dying state. He doubled the size of his duchy and established a dynasty that ruled unchallenged for 200 years. This volume is the first book-length study in any language to approach the figure of Duke Cosimo I from the point of view of his cultural agenda. The contributors examine the political, economic, cultural and linguistic strategies that made Cosimo a successful leader, and in the process...

De-Radicalisation in the UK Prevent Strategy: Security, Identity and Religion

M. S. Elshimi

De-Radicalisation in the UK Prevent Strategy: Security, Identity and Religion by M. S. Elshimi

This book examines de-radicalisation policy in the UK and addresses the contradictions evident in the conceptualisation and practice of de-radicalisation.

It explores three main themes that touch upon some of the most pressing issues of our day: security, identity and religion. Situated within the Prevent strand of the UK Counter-Terrorism policy and administered by the police through the 'Channel Programme', policymakers have promoted de-radicalisation as a vital instrument in the fight against terrorism. Despite the political and legal importance of de-radicalisation as an instrument of counter-terrorism,...

Quest for Blackbeard: The True Story of Edward Thache and His World

Baylus C. Brooks

Quest for Blackbeard: The True Story of Edward Thache and His World by Baylus C. BrooksDo you know who "Blackbeard the Pirate" was? Probably not! Born into a substantial family in Bristol, the eldest son of Capt. Edward and Elizabeth Thache sailed for Jamaica with his family sometime before 1695. Capt. Edward Thache of St. Jago de la Vega or "Spanish Town" died there at age 47 while his son, Edward "Blackbeard" Thache Jr. joined the Royal Navy and fought in Queen Anne's War aboard HMS Windsor. Thache resembled more a Robber Baron of the early 20th century than a poor downtrodden member of Benjamin Hornigold's "Flying Gang" in the Bahamas - or even his "pupil." Capt. Charles Johnson's...

This distinguishes it from printed editions of individual texts of Aristotle and other authorities. It is presented as a dialogue between master and pupil, covering the seven liberal arts, natural philosophy and moral philosophy, and with illustrations throughout.

The Propeller under the Bed: A Personal History of Homebuilt Aircraft

Eileen A. Bjorkman

The Propeller under the Bed: A Personal History of Homebuilt Aircraft by Eileen A. Bjorkman

On July 25, 2010, Arnold Ebneter flew across the country in a plane he designed and built himself, setting an aviation world record for aircraft of its class. He was eighty-two at the time and the flight represented the culmination of a dream he�d cultivated since his childhood in the 1930s.

Eileen Bjorkman � herself a pilot and aeronautical engineer � frames her father�s journey from teenage airplane enthusiast to Air Force pilot and Boeing engineer in the context of the rise, near extermination, and ongoing interest in homebuilt aircraft in the United States.

Symptoms of an Unruly Age: Li Zhi and Cultural Manifestations of Early Modernity

Rivi Handler-Spitz

Symptoms of an Unruly Age: Li Zhi and Cultural Manifestations of Early Modernity by Rivi Handler-Spitz

Symptoms of an Unruly Age compares the writings of Li Zhi (1527�1602) and his late-Ming compatriots to texts composed by their European contemporaries, including Montaigne, Shakespeare, and Cervantes. Emphasizing aesthetic patterns that transcend national boundaries, Rivi Handler-Spitz explores these works as culturally distinct responses to similar social and economic tensions affecting early modern cultures on both ends of Eurasia.

The paradoxes, ironies, and self-contradictions that pervade these works are symptomatic of the hypocrisy, social posturing, and counterfeiting that afflicted...

The Diary of A.J. Mounteney Jephson: Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, 1887-1889

Dorothy Middleton

The Diary of A.J. Mounteney Jephson: Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, 1887-1889 by Dorothy MiddletonThis is a first-hand account of the expedition led by H. M. Stanley in 1887-89 to the relief of Emin Pasha, Governor of Equatoria. A. J. Mounteney Jephson, a typical late Victorian traveller, took part in Stanley's last expedition in Africa. His recently-discovered diary describes the voyage out of the mouth of the Congo; the journey up the Congo and across the Ituri forests to Lake Albert; the meeting with Emin Pasha; the mutiny of Emin's troops and their imprisonment of Emin and Jephson; and the journey back to the East coast. Though it fell short of its political and commercial aims, the expedition...

A banker who inherited the leadership of Florence, Italy during the 15th century used his charisma and financial influence to create a humanistic city full of art and culture despite plots against him by Pope Sixtus IV, the Pazzi family and King Ferrante of Naples who would mummify those whose spirits he desired to be surrounded by.

Historical Mechanisms: An experimental approach to applying scientific theories to the study of history

Andreas Boldt

Historical Mechanisms: An experimental approach to applying scientific theories to the study of history by Andreas Boldt

Historical Mechanisms argues that scientific method can provide key new insights about events that took place long ago. Taking a fresh approach to historical method and theory, this book contends that there is enough data to show that under certain circumstances societies have behaved, and will continue to behave, in similar ways throughout history.

In this book, Andreas D. Boldt discusses the possibility of utilizing natural scientific theories in order to explain historical processes, focusing on the question of how nations and empires rise, succeed, fail and then assume another form in which...

VC10: Icon of the Skies: BOAC, Boeing and a Jet Age Battle

Lance Cole

VC10: Icon of the Skies: BOAC, Boeing and a Jet Age Battle by Lance ColeOther books have charted the VC10 in airline life, but this book blends that story with a well-researched tale of corporate and political power play. It asks; just what lay behind the sales failure of the VC1O? Politics played an important part of course, as did BOAC's tactics, and a 'who dunnit' cast of politico-corporate events and machinations at the highest level of society during the dying days of Empire in 1960s Britain. Key players in the story, from Tony Benn to famous test pilot Brian Trubshaw (Concorde), are cited and quoted. The VC10 was the nation's biggest jet airliner of its age...

Buying for the Home: Shopping for the Domestic from the Seventeenth Century to the Present

Margaret Ponsonby

Buying for the Home: Shopping for the Domestic from the Seventeenth Century to the Present by Margaret PonsonbyBuying for the Home is a book about the experiences and also the polarities of shopping and the home. It analyses the ways in which the agencies and discourses of the retail environment mesh with the processes of physical and imaginative re-creation that constitute the domestic space, teasing out the negotiations and interactions that mediate this key arena. The study examines how the strategies of retailers were both arbitrated by and negotiated through the actions and desires of the homemaker as consumer. Drawing on the recent CHORD (Centre for the History of Retail and Distribution) colloquium...

Spices in the Indian Ocean World

M. N. Pearson

Spices in the Indian Ocean World by M. N. PearsonBy turns exotic, valuable and of cardinal importance in the development of world trade, spices, as the editor reminds us, are today a mundane accessory in any well-equiped kitchen; in the 15th-18th centuries, the spice trade from the Indian Ocean to markets all over the world was a major economic enterprise. Setting the scene with extracts from Garcia da Orta's fascinating contemporary Colloquies on the drugs and simples of India [Goa 1563], this collection reviews trade in a wide variety of spices, exploring merchant organisation, transport and marketing as well as detailing the quantitative evidence...
