Gathering Hopewell: Society, Ritual and Ritual ...
142,94 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Among the most socially and personally vocal archaeological remains on the North American continent are the massive and often complexly designed earthen architecture of Hopewellian peoples of two thousand years ago, their elaborately embellished works of art made of glistening metals and stones from faraway places, and their highly formalized mortuaries. In this book, twenty-one researchers in interwoven efforts immerse themselves and the reader in this vibrant archaeological record in order to richly reconstruct the societies, rituals, and ritual interactions of Hopewellian peoples. By finding the faces, actions, and motivations of Hopewellian peoples as individuals who constructed knowable social roles, the authors explore, in a personalized and locally contextualized manner, the details of Hopewellian life: leadership, its sacred and secular power bases, recruitment, and formalization over time; systems of social ranking and prestige; animal-totemic clan organization, kinship structures, and sodalities; gender roles, prestige, work load, and health; community organization in its tri-scalar residential, symbolic, and demographic forms; intercommunity alliances and changes in their strategies and expanses over time; and interregional travels for power questing, pilgrimage, healing, tutelage, and acquiring ritual knowledge. This book is useful to scholars, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates interested in the workings and development of social complexity at local and interregional scales, recent theoretical developments in the anthropology of the topics listed above, the prehistory of eastern North America, its history of intellectual development, and Native American ritual, symbolism, and belief.

The Rise of the Rich: A New View of Modern Worl...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The rise of the West has long been the accepted doctrine for framing analyses of world history. Privileging a Eurocentric approach, this traditional paradigm obscures the significance of the indigenous rich in non-Western regions and fails to recognize the contributions of the Orient. In this book, Peter Gran seeks to reframe current historical debates, presenting a model of analysis based on the rise of the rich. Gran outlines the structure of this new paradigm, building upon metanarrative concepts from Marxism to liberalism. Rather than a history of clashing civilizations, he identifies a history of resolving conflicts through negotiations among the wealthy classes of various regions. Fundamental to his theory is evidence demonstrating the existence of non-European ruling classes with power in interregional affairs. Far-reaching in its historical scope, Gran's work lays the foundation for a critical rethinking of world history and offers a vital contribution to the field. 1. Language: English.

The Syrian Crisis: Effects on the Regional and ...
113,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book analyses the Syrian crisis from an international relations perspective. Developing into a proxy war, the Syrian crisis has been a battleground for regional dominance. It has also created an opportunity for new states to emerge in the world affairs scene. For example, Russia, which since the fall of the Soviet Union has retreated from world affairs, has reasserted itself by taking a leading role in the Syrian crisis. The Syrian crisis has had an important impact on interregional as well as international relations. It has also been a catalyst that reshaped the many interstate relations and allowed countries such as Russia, Iran, Turkey and China to play an increasingly important role in international affairs. While the crisis led to an Iranian Russian rapprochement and to more cooperation between Russia and Saudi Arabia, the crisis drove states that have opposing views of the crisis, Turkey, Iran and Russia, to forge an alliance. China on the other hand, a country focused on its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative is trying to walk a fine line between the Arab Gulf and Iran. This book looks at the tools, actors, and structures that have emerged out of this conflict. The conflict is distinguished by a rise in extremism, an unprecedented use of violent non-state actors, propaganda and by a sectarian narrative which will have an effect on the region for the years to come. The only light at the end of the tunnel are the local councils that can create a foundation to stabilise Syria. This book would be a valuable read for scholars as well as students of the Middle East in general and the Syrian crisis in particular.
