"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.

Véritable 'Strabon français' pour ses contemporains, Jean-Baptiste d'Anville est considéré comme l'un des plus grands géographes des Lumières. Ce livre, fruit du travail d'analyse d'une dizaine de spécialistes internationaux, fondé sur des sources nombreuses et souvent inédites, est la première monographie à lui être consacrée. Comment cet inconnu, fils de tailleur parisien, se retrouve-t-il à vingt-deux ans géographe du roi et précepteur du jeune Louis XV? C'est ce parcours extraordinaire que retracent les auteurs de cet ouvrage, en reconstituant le réseau qu'il a su se créer tout en s'assurant la protection des ducs d'Orléans sur trois générations et l'intérêt de la couronne portugaise. Au fil des chapitres se révèle l'impressionnante habileté intellectuelle de d'Anville, capable de satisfaire les exigences de ses mécènes sans trahir ses sources, conservant son intégrité de savant malgré la pression des enjeux diplomatiques. Sans quitter son cabinet parisien, par le seul exercice d'une critique aiguisée et d'un croisement systématique des sources (textes anciens, récits de voyage, mesures astronomiques, informations orales...), d'Anville remodèle les contours du monde ancien et moderne, avec une exactitude qui sera validée par les mesures de terrain a posteriori. Ce livre dresse un portrait tout en nuances d'un géographe de cabinet au siècle des Lumières. Penché derrière l'épaule du savant, le lecteur découvre comment il élabore très tôt une rigoureuse méthodologie de travail, bâtit sa carrière, constitue l'une des plus grandes collections de cartes du XVIIIe siècle, et influence jusqu'à nos jours la représentation du monde et de ses frontières.
True 'French Strabo' for his contemporaries, Jean-Baptiste d'Anville is considered one of the greatest geographers of the Enlightenment. This book, the fruit of the analytical work of a dozen international specialists, based on numerous and often unpublished sources, is the first monograph to be dedicated to him. How does this stranger, the son of a Parisian tailor, find himself at twenty-two a geographer to the king and tutor to the young Louis XV? It is this extraordinary journey that the authors of this book retrace, reconstructing the network that it has been able to create while ensuring the protection of the Dukes of Orleans over three generations and the interest of the Portuguese crown. Over the course of the chapters reveals D'Anville's impressive intellectual ability, able to satisfy the requirements of his patrons without betraying his sources, maintaining his scholarly integrity despite the pressure of diplomatic issues. Without leaving his Parisian cabinet, by the only exercise of a sharp criticism and a systematic crossing of the sources (old texts, stories of voyage, astronomical measurements, oral informations ...),a posteriori . This book paints a portrait in nuances of a cabinet geographer in the Age of Enlightenment. Leaning behind the scholar's shoulder, the reader discovers how he elaborates very early a rigorous methodology of work, builds his career, constitutes one of the largest collections of cards of the eighteenth century, and influences to this day the representation of the world and its borders.--Voltaire Foundation.

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.

Feasting and commensality formed the backbone of social life in the polis, the most characteristic and enduring form of political organization in the ancient Greek world. Exploring a wide array of commensal practices, Feasting and Polis Institutions reveals how feasts defi ned the religious and political institutions of the Greek citizen-state. Taking the reader from the Early Iron Age to the Imperial Period, this volume launches an essential inquiry into Greek power relations. Focusing on the myriad of patronage roles at the feast and making use of a wide variety of methodologies and primary sources, including archaeology, epigraphy and literature, Feasting and Polis Institutions argues that in ancient Greece political interaction could never be complete until it was consummated in a festive context.

Homer and the Good Ruler in Antiquity and Beyond focuses on the important question of how and why later authors employ Homeric poetry to reflect on various types and aspects of leadership. In a range of essays discussing generically diverse receptions of the epics of Homer in historically diverse contexts, this question is answered in various ways. Rather than considering Homer's works as literary products, then, this volume discusses the pedagogic dimension of the Iliad and the Odyssey as perceived by later thinkers and writers interested in the parameters of good rule, such as Plato, Philodemus, Polybius, Vergil, and Eustathios.
