"In 1706-1707, a proposed union of the Scottish and English kingdoms excited vigorous debate. Dozens of Scottish burghs, shires and parishes sent petitions to the Scottish parliament, known as addresses, to protest against the treaty of union. The addresses reveal local opinions and feelings, as expressed through a sophisticated petitioning campaign. They show how Presbyterians and Jacobites joined in an oppositional coalition, which disagreed on most matters of church and state, but agreed to oppose the union. Thousands of male tenant farmers, artisans and servants subscribed with their own hands, or via notaries and church elders. Campaigners argued that these opinions mattered and that parliament should listen to the 'mind of the nation'. Though ultimately unsuccessful, the campaign had a strong impact on the shape of the union. This volume provides a transcript of each local voice from the original handwritten documents, explaining the circumstances in relation to the voting patterns of members of the Scottish Parliament. An introduction sets the addresses in their historical context" -- Provided by publisher's website.

During the Neogene - covering the last 23 Million years - the evolution of the environmental setting in Africa was subject to considerable changes. Natural shifts, slow and rapid, evidenced by modifications in palaeogeography, geodynamics, climate, and vegetation have caused repeated and strong changes of ecosystems in the lower latitudes. Using a variety of proxy data - researched and applied by many authors from numerous disciplines - an attempt is made to reconstruct African landscapes over space and time. Besides such spatio-temporal oscillations in recently humid, semi-humid, and dry areas of Africa, this volume of Palaeoecology of Africa (PoA) focuses on long term interrelationships between ecosystem dynamics and climate change, not ignoring the ever growing and ongoing influence of humans on natural ecosystems since the Quaternary. Regionally, this volume lays a strong focus on Nigeria (Niger Delta). Facing the omnipresent challenges of Global Change, an increasing number of African scientists is involved in palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic research, both theoretical and applied. PoA systematically supports established as well as junior African scientists in the field of sustainable cooperation and academic capacity building. This book will be of interest to all concerned with or interested in up-to-date research on Neogene to Quaternary low latitudes ecosystem changes and their respective interpretation in the framework of natural climate and vegetation change evidenced by a variety of methods that allow to read and learn from the past by following the motto, "The geologic foretime as the key to the present, and possibly to the future." Palynologists, Geologists, Geographers, Archaeologists, and Geomorphologists will find this edition equally useful for their work.

In 'Caesar's Civil War: Historical Reality and Fabrication' Westall combines literary analysis of Caesar's Bellum Civile with a concern for the socio-economic history of the Roman empire. The 'Bellum Gallicum' and the Shakespearean play are better known, but Caesar's partisan account of the Roman civil war culminating in the battle of Pharsalus offers a historical text of perennial interest and relevance. Two introductory chapters contextualize this book and offer a traditional narrative of political and military history for 49-48 BCE. There follow seven chapters dedicated to each of the geographical theatres of civil war. These chapters show how Caesar's testimony sheds important light upon the nature of Roman rule in the Mediterranean, but also explore the problems to be encountered in using potentially tendentious testimony.

Characterization in Ancient Greek Literature is the fourth volume in the series Studies in Ancient Greek Narrative. The book deals with the narratological concepts of character and characterization and explores the textual devices used for purposes of characterization by ancient Greek authors spanning a large historical period (from Homer to Heliodorus) and a variety of literary genres (epic, elegy, historiography, choral lyric, drama, oratory, philosophy, biography, and novel). The book's aim is not only to describe these devices, but also to investigate their effects and the implications of their use for our interpretation of the texts.

"Following this discovery and further detrital-zircon studies of Mesozoic strata on the Colorado Plateau, Dr. Dickinson began preparing this volume in order to identify key aspects of the sedimentary and tectonic history of Mesozoic strata of the Colorado Plateau and directly adjacent areas. He divided the strata into seven depositional systems"--Provided by publisher.
"William R. Dickinson (1931-2015) formally retired in 1991, but he didn't stop working, researching, and writing. His work with University of Arizona professor George Gehrels on identifying sandstone provenance using detrital-zircon U-Pb geochronology led to the determination that much of the Pennsylvanian to Jurassic sandstone of the Colorado Plateau was derived from the orogenic belt now associated with the Appalachian Mountains. Further detrital-zircon studies led to Dickinson preparing this publication in order to identify key aspects of the sedimentary and tectonic history of Mesozoic strata of the Colorado Plateau and directly adjacent areas. Dickinson divided the strata into seven depositional systems, but completed writing on only the lower five (Moenkopi, Chinle, Glen Canyon, San Rafael, Morrison) before his death in July 2015. The manuscript, however, was comprehensive in its treatment of upper Paleozoic strata and the lower five Mesozoic "deposystems," and an abstract and concluding text by Jon Spencer helped to complete the work" -- Publisher's description.

The Acanthaceae are among the 10 or so most taxonomically diverse families of flowering plants. Taxonomically, northern regions of the Neotropics including Mexico and much of Central America have been studied to a greater degree than have more southerly regions of the Neotropics including most of South America. In particular, the Acanthaceae biotas of Venezuela and Colombia are believed to be particularly rich as well as home to numerous endemics. Recent fieldwork by the authors in both countries has yielded some of the first targeted, modern collections of the family since the mid-twentieth century and has made possible a focused taxonomic study of Ruellia—the second most species-rich genus of Neotropical Acanthaceae. The present study contributes a taxonomic revision of the 29 species of Venezuelan Ruellia, including in-depth assessments of type material for all names, new typifications, extensive discussion of taxonomy, biogeography, and ecology of species; field photographs of species and habitats and botanical illustrations of species not previously illustrated; International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) conservation assessments (for the 13 endemic species only); ArcGIS-based maps showing geographical distributions as well as protected areas; and dichotomous keys to facilitate identification of all 29 species. Most collections of Ruellia derive from regions of Venezuela not currently contained within a protected area. Of the 13 endemics, three were assessed as Critically Endangered, five as Endangered, two as Vulnerable, one as Near Threatened, one as Data Deficient, and one as Extinct. Thus, all but four are at severe risk of extinction in the wild, highlighting the growing crisis around habitat destruction in the Neotropics.

"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.
