"Le nom de l'abbé Bignon est connu de tous ceux qui fréquentent l'actuelle BnF du "site Richelieu", mais aucune biographie n'a été consacrée à celui qui fut le réorganisateur de la bibliothèque du Roi, lors de son installation rue de Richelieu où elleest restée jusqu'à nos jours, malgré les transformations apportées par Labrouste au XIXe siècle et k déménagement plus récent des livres imprimés sur le site dit "de Tolbiac". Ce personnage, issu du monde parlementaire et oncle du ministre Maurepas, eut également la tutelle des Académies des sciences et des inscriptions et belles-lettres auxquelles il insuffla une nouvelle activité. Enfin, par un réseau international de correspondants à l'étranger, il fut sans conteste l'un des plus grands citoyens de la République des Lettres au Siècle des Lumières. Il enrichit considérablement les collections de manuscrits, d'imprimés et d'estampes et mena à bien le premier catalogue imprimé des collections de la bibliothèque auxquelles il donna un classement qui demeura jusqu'à nos jours. C'est cette activité multiple qui est retracée ici."--Page 4 of cover.

"[The] third child of Attorney General Robert Kennedy and nephew of JFK takes us on an intimate journey through his life, including watershed moments in the history of our nation. Stories of his grandparents Joseph and Rose set the stage for their nine remarkable children, among them three U.S. senators--Teddy, Bobby, and Jack--one of whom went on to become attorney general, and the other, the president of the United States. We meet Allen Dulles and J. Edgar Hoover, two men whose agencies posed the principal threats to American democracy and values. Their power struggles with the Kennedys underpinned all the defining conflicts of the era. We live through the Cuban Missile Crisis, when insubordinate spies and belligerent generals in the Pentagon and Moscow brought the world to the cliff edge of nuclear war. At Hickory Hill in Virginia, where RFK Jr. grew up, we encounter the celebrities who gathered at the second most famous address in Washington, members of what would later become known as America's Camelot. Through his father's role as attorney general we get an insider's look as growing tensions over civil rights led to pitched battles in the streets and 16,000 federal troops were called in to enforce desegregation at Ole Miss. We see growing pressure to fight wars in Southeast Asia to stop communism. We relive the assassination of JFK, RFK's run for the presidency that was cut short by his own death, and the aftermath of those murders on the Kennedy family. These pages come...to life with intimate stories of RFK Jr.'s own experiences, not just with historical events and the movers who shaped them but also with his mother and father, with his own struggles with addiction, and with the ways he eventually made peace with both his Kennedy legacy and his own demons."-- Dust jacket.

Applied Soils and Micromorphology in Archaeology provides the most up-to-date information on soil science and its applications in archaeology. Based on more than three decades of investigations and experiments, the volume demonstrates how description protocols and complimentary methods (SEM/EDS, microprobe, micro-FTIR, bulk soil chemistry, micro- and macrofossils) are used in interpretations. It also focuses on key topics, such as palaeosols, cultivation, and occupation surfaces, and introduces a range of current issues, such as site inundation, climate change, settlement morphology, herding, trackways, industrial processes, funerary features, and site transformation. Structured around important case studies, Applied Soils and Micromorphology in Archaeology is thoroughly-illustrated, with color plates and figures, tables and other ancillary materials on its website (www.cambridge.org/9781107011380); chapter appendices can be accessed separately using the web (www.geoarchaeology.info/asma). This new book will serve as an essential volume for all archaeological inquiry about soil.

"Si la préhistoire de la Côte d'Ivoire est encore peu connue, l'histoire des recherches menées à l'intention de son exploration l'est certainement encore moins. Or, la recherche archéologique en Côte d'Ivoire a en réalité aujourd'hui plus de 100 ans et a connu un développement lié à l'histoire mouvementée du pays. La reconnaissance et l'analyse de cette longue et complexe histoire de la recherche locale permet de situer et de comprendre les méthodes originales et les objectifs spécifiques des archéologues ivoiriens ainsi que les cadres tant contextuels que théoriques dans lesquels ceux-ci évoluent. Cet ouvrage propose donc à la fois une histoire, celle de recherche archéologique dans un pays ouest-africain, ainsi qu'une analyse, celle de sa situation et de son fonctionnement actuel. Il retrace ainsi la succession des projets et des réalisations des différents chercheurs et chercheuses qui ont parcouru et qui sillonnent encore les routes, les meilleures comme les moins bonnes, afin d'explorer, de comprendre et de transmettre le passé de la Côte d'Ivoire."--Page 4 of cover.

Jousting is the most iconic form of mounted combat. For more than five hundred years, the sport itself, and the chivalric culture that surrounded it, took on almost mythical qualities. Here, Tobias Capwell explains the glitz and glamour of a sport that attracted enormous popular audiences throughout the late middle ages. Though he deals almost exclusively with weapons and warriors, Capwell tells a story not of war and destruction, but of pageantry and valour. This is the story of the armour of peace. The book forms part of a series of introductions to aspects of the Royal Armouries' collection of arms and armour. Written by specialists in the field, they are packed full of fascinating information and stunning photography. Royal Armouries is the national museum of arms and armour, with sites at Leeds, the Tower of London and Fort Nelson, Hampshire.

In the 1980s, somewhere in Austin, Helton was young, married, and jobless. After a few strung-out years trying to make it as a writer, he was caught in a cycle of drunken, coked-up nights, crashing on friends' couches and looking for money in the morning. Succumbing to the daunting reality of what it means to support both himself and a troubled marriage, he became a housepainter. He sold pumpkins on the side of the road, delivered firewood, ran a crew of illegal immigrants hauling railroad ties across the empty plains of Kansas, and then he painted even more. Despair is transformed into resilience as Helton insightfully narrates his wayward years, enduring hateful employers and mind-numbing manual labor. Along the way, the people toiling beneath the saccharine veneer of wealth that was the Reagan years are brought to vivid life: the ambitious and the lazy, the potheads and the racists, as well as Vietnam vets too shaken to hold a paintbrush and deadbeat fathers straining to pay child support. With intoxicating, blase-faire sentiment, Helton shows that everyone-from the beauties at the rodeo to the lowest laborers-is tethered by a common desire to just pay the bills and balm the loneliness. A raw and moving account, Bad Jobs and Poor Decisions captures a microcosm of left-behind America that straddles a dangerous line between ruin and redemption.

"Quel critique n'a jamais recouru à la biographie d'un écrivain dans l'espoir d'y trouver des clefs secrètes de son oeuvre ? La vie des auteurs nous permet de découvrir des relations réelles ou imaginaires entre leur for intérieur et leur production littéraire. Les contributions à ce volume visent à questionner l'objet de l'oeuvre littéraire dans son rapport à la vie de son auteur : que sait la biographie ? Quels choix fait-elle ? La prolifération des biographies prouve la pertinence de la réhabilitation d'un genre jadis jugé désuet et dépassé, mais elle suscite aussi quelques interrogations et soupçons. On assiste aujourd'hui à une résurgence de biographies qui tentent de redéfinir le genre."--Page 4 of cover.

This volume explores a web of complex relationships between body and mind, discussing the efforts of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds to define, to achieve, or to reject the "normal"; and, in some cases, to put something else in its place. After considering the problems arising from other people's perceptions of non-standard bodies, the book turns to gender: is it written "upon the body", established at birth, determined only by physical traits and distinguished by material things such as clothes; or is it written "within the body", defined through the subject's own feelings? It considers what happens when "males" consider themselves "female", and "females" consider themselves "male".It concludes with the analysis of four books, by different authors with different sexual orientations. Two of these volumes might be considered "genuine autobiographies", while the other two are novels which include numerous autobiographical features that reflect the authors' own thoughts.

As much as we may like to evade them, illness and disability inescapably attend human embodiment - we are all vulnerable subjects. So it might seem natural and inevitable that the most universal, most democratic, form of literature - autobiography - should address these common features of human experience. Yet for the most part, autobiographical writing expressive of illness and disability remained quite uncommon until the second half of the twentieth century, when it flourished concurrently with successive civil rights movements. Women's liberation, with its signature manifesto Our Bodies Ourselves, supported the breast cancer narrative; the gay rights movement encouraged AIDS narrative in response to a deadly epidemic; and the disability rights movement stimulated a surge in narratives of various disabilities. Conversely, the narratives helped to advance the respective rights movements. Such writing, then, has been representative in two senses of the term: aesthetic (mimetic) and political (acting on behalf of). It has done, and continues to do, important cultural work. This volume explores this phenomenon using the latest critical theories and from the perspectives of patients and creative writers as well as academics. It attends to the problematic intersection of trauma and disability; it encompasses graphic narratives, essays, and diaries, as well as full-length memoirs; and it examines the ethical as well as the aesthetic dimensions of narrative. This book was originally published as a special issue of Life Writing.

In Creating Conversos, Roger Louis Martinez-Davila skillfully un - ravels the complex story of Jews who converted to Catholicism in Spain between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, migrated to colonial Mexico and Bolivia during the conquest of the Americas, and assumed prominent church and government positions. Rather than acting as alienated and marginalized subjects, the conversos were able to craft new identities and strategies not just for survival but for prospering in the most adverse circumstances. Martinez-Davila provides an extensive, elaborately detailed case study of the Carvajal-Santa Maria clan from its beginnings in late fourteenth-century Castile. By tracing the family ties and intermarriages of the Jewish rabbinic ha- Levi lineage of Burgos, Spain (which became the converso Santa Maria clan) with the Old Christian Carvajal line of Plasencia, Spain, Martinez-Davila demonstrates the family's changing identity, and how the monolithic notions of ethnic and religious disposition were broken down by the group and negotiated anew as they transformed themselves from marginal into mainstream characters at the center of the economies of power in the world they inhabited. They succeeded in rising to the pinnacles of power within the church hierarchy in Spain, even to the point of contesting the succession to the papacy and overseeing the Inquisitorial investigation and execution of extended family members, including Luis de Carvajal "The Younger" and most of his immediate family during the 1590s in Mexico City. Martinez-Davila offers a rich panorama of the many forces that shaped the emergence of modern Spain, including tax policies, rivalries among the nobility, and ecclesiastical politics. His text is strengthened by many family trees that assist the reader as the threads of political and social relationships are carefully disentangled.

Cultural heritage communities of interest have increasingly expanded from cultural heritage professionals to volunteers, special interest groups and independent citizen-led initiative groups. Digital technology has also increasingly impacted cultural heritage by affording novel experiences of it - it features in a number of activities for all the aforementioned groups, as well as acting as support for visitors to cultural heritage centres. With different degrees of formality and training, these communities are increasingly defining and taking ownership of what is of value to them, thus reconfiguring the care, communication, interpretation and validation of heritage. Digital technology has played a crucial role in this transformative process. In a fully international context, cultural heritage practitioners, community champions and academics from different fields of study have contributed to this book. Each chapter brings to the fore the multiple relationships between heritage, communities and technologies as a focus of study and reflection in an inclusive way. Contributions touch upon present and future opportunities for technology, as well as participatory design processes with different stakeholders. This book brings together ideas from different disciplines, cultures, methods and goals, to inspire scholars and practitioners involved in community heritage projects.
