In Gardens of the Roman Empire, the pioneering archaeologist Wilhelmina F. Jashemski sets out to examine the role of ancient Roman gardens in daily life throughout the empire. This study, therefore, includes for the first time, archaeological, literary, and artistic evidence about ancient Roman gardens across the entire Roman Empire from Britain to Arabia. Through well-illustrated essays by leading scholars in the field, various types of gardens are examined, from how Romans actually created their gardens to the experience of gardens as revealed in literature and art. Demonstrating the central role and value of gardens in Roman civilization, Jashemski and a distinguished, international team of contributors have created a landmark reference work that will serve as the foundation for future scholarship on this topic.

Der Ungarnaufstand des Jahres 1956 markiert mittlerweile vielfach den frühen Beginn des Zerfalls des Ostblocks. Dabei wird das Ereignis in der historischen Analyse oft verklärt, das Verhalten des (westlichen) Auslands mitunter auch unreflektiert kritisiert. Ziel der Kritik ist meist auch die UNO, der nicht nur von den Ungarn Versagen vorgeworfen wird. Hierbei bleiben aber die tatsächlichen Möglichkeiten der Kritisierten im Dunkeln, althergebrachte politisch motivierte Thesen werden nicht weiter hinterfragt. Georg Kastner wählt in "Ungarn 1956 vor der UNO" eine andere Herangehensweise als die bislang zum Thema Ungarn 1956 verfassten Studien. Die Entwicklung und ihre Vorgeschichte werden im ersten Teil unter Analyse von Berichten der DDR-Botschaft in Budapest, der CIA und der UNO rekonstruiert; es wird dargestellt, wer wann über welchen Informationsstand verfügte. Im zweiten Teil steht die Debatte in den UN-Gremien im Mittelpunkt, wobei sich zeigt, dass die Vereinten Nationen bei weitem nicht so untätig waren, wie ihnen vielfach unterstellt wurde und wird.

What was a book in early modern England? By combining book history, bibliography and literary criticism, Material Texts in Early Modern England explores how sixteenth- and seventeenth-century books were stranger, richer things than scholars have imagined. Adam Smyth examines important aspects of bibliographical culture which have been under-examined by critics: the cutting up of books as a form of careful reading; book destruction and its relation to canon formation; the prevalence of printed errors and the literary richness of mistakes; and the recycling of older texts in the bodies of new books, as printed waste. How did authors, including Herbert, Jonson, Milton, Nashe and Cavendish, respond to this sense of the book as patched, transient, flawed, and palimpsestic? Material Texts in Early Modern England recovers these traits and practices, and so crucially revises our sense of what a book was, and what a book might be.

The Early Textual History Of Lucretius De Rerum Natura

This is the first detailed analysis of the fate of Lucretius' De rerum natura from its beginnings in the 50s BC down to the creation of our earliest extant manuscripts during the Carolingian age. A detailed investigation of the knowledge of Lucretius' poem among writers throughout the Roman, and subsequently the medieval, worlds allows fresh insight into the work's readership and reception, and an assessment of the value of the indirect tradition for editing the poem. The first extended analysis of the 170+ subject headings (capitula) that intersperse the text reveals the close engagement of Roman readers. A fresh inspection and assignation of marginal hands in the poem's most important manuscript provides new evidence about the work of Carolingian correctors and the basis for a new Lucretian stemma codicum. Further clarification of the interrelationship of Renaissance manuscripts of Lucretius gives additional evidence of the poem's reception in fifteenth-century Italy.

The contributors to this book focus on the relationship between nature and society from a variety of theoretical and ethnographic perspectives. Their work draws upon recent developments in social theory, biology, ethnobiology, epistemology, sociology of science, and a wide array of ethnographic case studies -- from Amazonia, the Solomon Islands, Malaysia, the Mollucan Islands, rural comunities from Japan and north-west Europe, urban Greece, and laboratories of molecular biology and high-energy physics. The discussion is divided into three parts, emphasising the problems posed by the nature-culture dualism, some misguided attempts to respond to these problems, and potential avenues out of the current dilemmas of ecological discourse.
