"Based on a study of the 6,700 editorials published in Le Devoir during the Henri Bourassa years (1910-32), this volume seeks to outline the ideological positions defended by Bourassa as French-Canadian nationalism was emerging for the first time in full force. During these two decades, Le Devoir was instrumental in defining the place of French speakers in Canada and in spelling out their aspirations as a separate people within the federation. The book is an anthology of sixty of the most significant editorials, translated into English, each situated in its historical context by the editor, historian Pierre Anctil. Examined together, the editorials offer a global picture of the evolution of French Canada at a crucial time in its history. They also paint a clear image of the tensions that emerged between Francophone and Anglophone Canada shortly after the signing of Confederation and at the turn of the twentieth century."-- Provided by publisher.

Counsel was a fundamental element of the theoretical framework and practical workings of medieval and early modern government. Good rule was to be ensured by governors hearing wise advisers. This process of counsel assumed particular importance in England and Scotland between the 14th and 17th centuries because of the close adherence to ideas of the common good, commonwealth, and community in this period. Yet this era saw major changes in who gave counsel and how it operated. This volume identifies both patterns and moments of change while also recognising continuities. It examines counsel in the context of Anglo-Scottish warfare and unions, the Reformations, and early colonising ventures, as well as in the contingent circumstances of individual reigns and long-term evolutions in the nature of government. Depicting counsel as ubiquitous yet archivally elusive, this volume uses government records, pamphlets, plays, poetry, histories, and oaths to establish a new framework for understanding advice. As it shows, a widespread belief in good counsel masked fundamental tensions between accountability and secrecy, inclusive representation and political cohesiveness, and between upholding and restraining sovereign authority.

Repräsentation' ist ein schillernder und uneindeutiger Begriff, der in verschiedenen Disziplinen der Sprach- und Kulturforschung eine zentrale Rolle spielt. Der Band fragt nach Unterschieden, Ähnlichkeiten und Gemeinsamkeiten des Verständnisses von Repräsentation in Linguistik, Kognitions- und Translationswissenschaft, Literatur-, Kunst- und Musikwissenschaft, mit unterschiedlichen Akzenten auf kunst- oder sozialgeschichtlichen Fragenstellungen. Theoretische Perspektiven werden durch praktische Anwendungsbeispiele ergänzt. 00Der Band versteht 'Repräsentation' als einen Vorgang des Repräsentierens und nicht als fertiges ?Produkt". Dieser Vorgang ist ein kontinuierlicher und tendenziell unendlicher, denn an ihm wirken alle an einer Repräsentation Beteiligten mit - die Autorinnen, Aufführenden und Rezipientlnnen -, freilich in historisch wie aktuell unterschiedlicher Weise und in unterschiedlichen Bezügen zueinander. Vorgänge des Repräsentierens sind ?lebendig", das heißt, Unvorhergesehenes spielt in Absichtsvolles, ?Diffuses" in Bestimmbares hinein. Diese Dynamik spiegelt sich in allen Beiträgen. 00Ohne eine allgemeingültige Definition von 'Repräsentation' anzustreben, fragt der Band nach Strukturierungen des Betrachtungsfeldes. Da ist erst einmal die Frage nach der Repräsentationsleistung unterschiedlicher Medien und Kommunikationsformen. Wie verhalten sich verfolgte Absichten und bereits vorhandenes Wissen zueinander? Aus einer zweiten Perspektive werden die Repräsentationsmedien - Sprache, Gestik, körperliche Bewegungen, Bild, Klang und komplexe Inszenierungen aus diesen Elementen - näher untersucht. Schließlich ist nach Repräsentationsfunktionen zu fragen. Hier zieht sich der enge Bezug von Repräsentationen zur Macht durch alle Beiträge.

An authoritative summary of the results of the archaeological excavations in the middle Senegal River valley, site of the ancient African Empire of Takrur. A summary of archaeological discoveries in the middle Senegal River valley, this authoritative volume presents new data on iron production, population settlement, and environmental change on the site of the ancient West African empire of Takrur, the first kingdom south of the Sahara mentioned by medieval Arab chroniclers. This authoritative volume should prove of great value to students of archaeology, anthropology, and African history, as well as to climatologists, geomorphologists, and ecologists.

Sir Joseph Banks was one of the great figures of Georgian England, best known for participating as naturalist in Cook's Endeavour voyage (1768-71), as a patron of science and as the longest-serving President of the Royal Society (1778-1820). This volume brings together all Banks's papers concerning Iceland and the North Atlantic, scattered in repositories in Britain, the United States, Australia and Denmark, and most published here for the first time. A detailed introduction places them in historical context.
