"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.

The Alexander Romance by Ps.-Callisthenes of Krzysztof Nawotka is a guide to a third century AD fictional biography of Alexander the Great, the anonymous Historia Alexandri Magni. It is a historical commentary which identifies all names and places in this piece of Greek literature approached as a source for the history of Alexander the Great, from kings, like Nectanebo II of Egypt and Darius III of Persia, to fictional characters. It discusses real and imaginary geography of the Alexander Romance. While dealing with all aspects of Ps.-Callisthenes relevant to Greek history and to Macedonia, its pays particular attention to aspects of ancient history and culture of Babylonia and Egypt and to the multi-layered foundation story of Alexandria.

"The animal-human relationship challenged not only disciplinary boundaries--between poetry and science, art and animal husbandry, natural history and fiction--but also the basic assumptions of human intellectual and cultural activity, expression, and self-perception. This is specifically apparent in the re-evaluation of sentiment and sensibility, which constitutes a major theme of this chronologically organised volume. Authors engage with contemporary reactions to the commodification of animals during the period of British imperialism, tracing how eighteenth-century ecological consciousness and notions of animal identity and welfare emerged from earlier, traditional models of the cosmos, and reassessing late eighteenth-century poetic representations of the sentimental encounter with the animal other. They show how human experience was no longer viewed as an iterative process but as one continually shaped by the other. In concluding chapters authors highlight the political resonances of the animal-human relationship as it was used both to represent and to redress the injustices between humans as well as between humans and animals. Through a multi-faceted study of eighteenth-century European culture, authors reveal how the animal presence--both real and imagined--forces a different reading not only of texts but also of society."--Page 4 of cover.

Authorship and Greek Song is a collection of papers dealing with various aspects of authorship in the song culture of Ancient Greece. In this cultural context the idea of the poet as author of his poems is complicated by the fact that poetry in archaic Greece circulated as songs performed for a variety of audiences, both local and "global" (Panhellenic). The volume's chapters discuss questions about the importance of the singers/performers; the nature of the performance occasion; the status of the poet; the authority of the poet/author and/or that of the performer; and the issues of authenticity arising when poems are composed under a given poet's name. The volume offers discussions of major authors such as Pindar, Sappho, and Theognis.

"Arthur Woodburn's autobiography provides an exceptionally rich insight into the development of labour politics in Scotland in the first half of the twentieth century, into the experience of coalition government during the Second World War and of reconstruction and the government of Scotland in its aftermath. Woodburn was prominent within the labour movement and the Labour Party, but unlike many of his contemporaries his autobiography was never published at the time. It records his Edinburgh childhood, his route to socialism, his imprisonment as a conscientious objector during the First World War, educational and journalistic activities as well as his official roles in the Labour Party and government during the 1930s and 40s. This volume provides a clear annotated modern edition of Woodburn's text, together with a full scholarly introduction explaining the historical significance of the autobiography and Woodburn himself" -- Provided by publisher's website.

"Der Band bringt den von Sigmund von Birken selbst gesammelten Teil seiner lateinischen Produktion in die Ausgabe ein. Die chronologisch angelegte und von ihm selbst handschriftlich geführte Sammlung BETULETUM enthält von 1645 bis 1662 entstandene lateinische Gedichte, Briefe und Andachtstexte Sigmund von Birkens. Sie sollte weitergeführt werden. Das ergibt sich aus Fortsetzungslisten mit Titeln und zwei chronologisch an diese Listen anschliessenden, ihrerseits chronologisch geführten Arbeitsbüchern. Die in den Listen genannten und in den Arbeitsbüchern enthaltenen und zur Aufnahme bezeichneten Texte sind, der Planung des Autors gemäss, in den Band aufgenommen. Die Sammlung lässt gut erkennen, bei welchen Gelegenheiten und zu welchen Zwecken sich die Autoren des 17. Jahrhunderts der lateinischen Sprache bedienten. Im Kommentarteil werden alle Texte in ihr zeitliches, soziales bzw. epistolographisches Umfeld eingeordnet, erklärt und übersetzt. Der Band erschliesst der Wissenschaft eine bislang gänzlich unbekannte Facette des Birken'schen Werkes und ermöglicht neue Erkenntnisse hinsichtlich der sozialen Funktion von Literatur im 17. Jahrhundert"-- Provided by publisher.
"The volume contains Sigmund von Birken's (1626-1681) collection of his favorite Latin poems, letters, and devotional texts, augmented by other texts included in supplementary lists and the contents of two workbooks that were intended to be part of the collection. All of the texts are published here for the first time, with extensive commentary and a German translation. They offer novel insights into the literary world of the 17th century"-- Provided by publisher.

With roughly 25% of those teaching college classes belonging to a union, higher education is one of the most heavily organized industries in the United States. Substantial research-based literature exists as scholars have been studying the topic for a half of a century. Following an overview of its history and context, this monograph synthesizes and analyzes the existing research on faculty and graduate student unionization. It points to evolving understandings of faculty attitudes regarding collective bargaining and the findings on the relationships between unionization and compensation, satisfaction, procedural protections, organizational effectiveness, and related issues for tenure-line faculty. Additional chapters consider the more limited research on non-tenure-line faculty and graduate student instructors. As such, this monograph illuminates the accepted understandings, contested arguments, and the substantial gaps in understandings that remain. This is the third issue of the 43rd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

The twelve studies contained in this volume discuss some key-aspects of citizenship from its emergence in Archaic Greece until the Roman period before AD 212, when Roman citizenship was extended to all the free inhabitants of the Empire. The book explores the processes of formation and re-formation of citizen bodies, the integration of foreigners, the question of multiple-citizenship holders and the political and philosophical thought on ancient citizenship. The aim is that of offering a multidisciplinary approach to the subject, ranging from literature to history and philosophy, as well as encouraging the reader to integrate the traditional institutional and legalistic approach to citizenship with a broader perspective, which encompasses aspects such as identity formation, performative aspect and discourse of citizenship.

"Dramatic shifts in the demographic and labor diversity of American faculty have pressed institutions and the profession to clarify who the 'real' faculty are. Emblematic of this struggle, full-time, non-tenure tract faculty are often caught in between the world of tenured faculty, where they fulfill many of the same roles, and that of adjunct faculty, with whom they experience similar employment insecurity and minimal institutional support. Efforts to equalize respect, resources, and treatment, although laudable, may be missing a vital aspect of the conversation: the role of collegiality and the collegium. Collegiality, the cultural, structural, and behavioral components, and the collegium, or the shared identity collegiality serves, are ancient concepts that in contemporary contexts often receive more regard than clarity. The intersection of these conceptual and practical challenges raises timely questions for the faculty profession. What is it about the history of the professoriate in America that has rendered the collegium inadequate and yet so important in an age of differentiated labor? How might a renewed vision for collegiality bring clarity to the question of which faculty should be regarded as experts? How can we adapt and leverage these important concepts for a professoriate that is increasingly diverse by demographics and employment category in ways that result in a more inclusive and robust profession? Engaging in these questions through the extant literature will call faculty, administrators, and graduate students into a compelling new conversation about the needs of and possibilities for the professoriate"--Back cover.
