"Ein Hauptforschungsgebiet des Verfassers betrifft die Ausbreitung des ägyptischen Kulturgutes zur Eisenzeit in den Mittelmeerraum. Im vorliegenden Band, dem zusammenfassende Bearbeitungen der entsprechenden Aegyptiaca Altitaliens, des phönikisch-punischen Sardinien sowie der maltesischen Inseln vorausgegangen sind, werden in erster Linie die bislang unpublizierten Amulette und Skarabäen aus Al Mina an der Orontesmündung (heute Türkei) präsentiert. Ausführliche Kommentare mit Vergleichsmaterial aus Ägypten und dem gesamten Mittelmeerraum sowie die zum Teil farbige fotografische Dokumentation erläutern die einzelnen Stücke. Diese stammen aus den Grabungen von Sir Leonard Woolley der Jahre 1936 und 1937 und kamen mehrheitlich nach Antakya, aber auch ins Ashmolean Museum in Oxford und ins Britische Museum, London. Dem Katalog hinzugefügt wurden einerseits die Skarabäen aus Tarsos (Grabungen Hetty Goldman, 1934-38) in Neubearbeitung und andererseits erreichbare Streufunde von Skarabäen in den Museen von Adana und Gaziantep. Sie sollen dem besseren Verständnis der kulturellen und handelsmäßigen Wechselbeziehungen dienen, welche die Aegyptiaca vermitteln. Ein besonderes Anliegen ist die Herausarbeitung der Bedeutung der präsentierten Funde innerhalb des weiteren Bereiches um den Golf von Iskenderun in späthethitischer und neuassyrischer Zeit. Dafür konnten auch die vom Verfasser studierten, aber noch nicht in Veröffentlichungen fassbaren Aegyptiaca von den Tells der Amuq-Ebene (im Hinterland von Al Mina) herangezogen werden, die die amerikanischen Missionen der dreißiger Jahre des vorigen Jahrhunderts ans Licht gebracht hatten"--Back cover.

Desert Island Discs has run on BBC radio since 1942 and its archive is now accessible. This book is the first to assess the programme from a scholarly perspective. Chapters by musicologists, sociologists, and media scholars are complemented by personal spins by 'castaways', who reflect on talking publicly about the role of music in their lives.

  • 'In memoriam: Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell (14 July 1868-12 July 1926)' / Janet E. Courtney (née Hogarth), introduced by Moayad Hanoush.
"This is a major re-evaluation of the life and legacy of Gertrude Lowthian Bell (1868-1926), the renowned scholar, explorer, writer, archaeologist, and British civil servant. The book examines Gertrude Bell's role in shaping British policy in the Middle East in the first part of the 20th century, her views of the cultures and peoples of the region, and her unusual position as a woman occupying a senior position in the British imperial administration. It focuses particularly on her involvement in Iraq and the part she played in the establishment of the Iraqi monarchy and the Iraqi state. In addition, the book examines her interests in Iraq's ancient past. She was instrumental in drawing up Iraq's first Antiquities Law in 1922 and in the foundation of the Iraq Museum in 1923. Gertrude Bell refused to be constrained by the expectations of the day, and was able to succeed in a man's world of high politics and diplomacy. She remains a controversial figure, however, especially in the context of the founding of the modern state of Iraq. Does she represent a more innocent age when the country was born out of the remnants of the Ottoman Empire, or does she personify the attitudes and decisions that have created today's divided Middle East? The volume's authors bring new insights to these questions" -- Provided by publisher's website.
