WITCHES WEREWOLVES AND FAIRIES: SHAPESHIFTERS AND ASTRAL DOUBLES IN THE MIDDLE AGE
INNER TRADITIONS INTERNATIONAL, 2003

Resumen del libro

Reveals the true nature of medieval belief in the Double of the Soul • Demonstrates the survival of a pagan belief that each individual owns three souls, including a double that can journey outside the physical body • Explains the nature of death and the Other World hidden beneath the monsters and superstitions in stories from the Middle Ages Monsters, werewolves, witches, and fairies remain a strong presence in our stories and dreams. But as Claude Lecouteux shows, their roots go far deeper than their appearance in medieval folklore; they are survivors of a much older belief system that predates Christianity and was widespread over Western Europe. Through his extensive analysis of Germano-Scandinavian legends, as well as those from other areas of Europe, Lecouteux has uncovered an almost forgotten religious concept: that every individual owns three souls and that one of these souls, the Double, can--in animal or human form--leave the physical body while in sleep or a trance, journey where it chooses, then reenter its physical body. While there were many who experienced this phenomenon involuntarily, there were others--those who attracted the unwelcome persecution of the Church--who were able to provoke it at will: witches. In a thorough excavation of the medieval soul, Claude Lecouteux reveals the origin and significance of this belief in the Double, and follows its transforming features through the ages. He shows that far from being fantasy or vague superstition, fairies, witches, and werewolves all testify to a consistent ancient vision of our world and the world beyond. ... Leer resumen completo

TRENCH ART: MATERIALITIES AND MEMORIES OF WAR
BERG PUBLISHERS, 2003

Resumen del libro

Trench art is the evocative name given to a dazzling array of objects made from the waste of industrialized war. Each object, whether an engraved shell case, cigarette lighter or a pen made from shrapnel, tells a unique and moving story about its maker. For the first time, this book explores in-depth the history and cultura l importance behind these ambiguous art forms. Not only do they symbolize human responses to the atrocities of war, but they also act as mediators between soldiers and civilians, individuals and industrial society, and, most importantly, between the living and the dead. Trench art resonates most obviously with the terror of endless bombardment, night raids, gas attacks and the bestial nature of trench life. It grew in popularity between 1919 and 1939 when the bereaved embarked on battlefield pilgrimages and returned with objects intended to keep alive the memory of loved ones. The term trench art is, however, misleading, as it does not simply refer to materials found in the trenches. It describes a diverse range of objects that have in some way emerged from the experience of war all over the world. Many distinctive objects, for example, were made during conflicts in Bosnia, Vietnam, Northern Ireland and Korea. Surprisingly, trench art predates World War I and it can be made in a number of earlier wars such as the Crimean War, the American Civil War, and the Boer War. Saunders looks at the broader issues of what is meant by trench art, what it was before the trenches and how it fits in with other art movements, as well as the specific materials used in making it. He suggests that it can be seen as a bridge between the nineteenth century certainties and the fragmented industrialized values and ideals of the modern world. This long overdue study offers an original and informative look at one of the most arresting forms of art. Spanning from 1800 to the present day, its analysis of art, human experience, and warfare will pave the way for new research and will be of great interest to cultural and military historians, anthropologists, art historians and collectors. ...

LES DANSEUSES SACREES D'ANGKOR
SEUIL, 2002

Resumen del libro

De la magnificence d’Angkor, l’ancienne capitale de l’Empire khmer, il ne reste pas seulement les plus beaux temples d’Extrême-Orient, vertigineuses cathédrales surgissant de la jungle tropicale. Un art sacré, la danse, a survécu à l’effondrement de l’Empire au XVe siè cle, à la colonisation et même au génocide khmer rouge. Cet art aurait disparu s’il ne touchait pas à l’identité même du Cambodge. Il est l’âme d’un peuple. Grâce à l’obstination des quelques survivants, les Apsaras, ces fameuses danseuses célestes sculptées sur les murs d’Angkor Vat, sont à nouveau les intermédiaires entre les dieux, le roi et le peuple khmer. La fille aînée du roi Norodom Sihanouk, la princesse Buppha Devi, était danseuse étoile dans les années 1960. Elle est aujourd’hui ministre de la Culture du royaume. Sous sa direction, le Ballet royal a retrouvé sa splendeur d’antan. Pendant quatorze ans, le photographe Christophe Loviny a suivi cette résurrection. Il est revenu chaque année s’installer pendant quelques semaines, quelques mois, dans l’unique village encore habité au c?ur de cette cité perdue que les dieux-rois khmers façonnèrent dans le grès. Finalement, grâce à l’aide de la princesse Buppha Devi, il a pu photographier les parties les plus importantes du répertoire dans le lieu même où officiaient les ancêtres des Apsaras. Des statues de pierre aux ballerines du Ballet royal contemporain, la danse sacrée est le fil conducteur pour découvrir non seulement Angkor mais aussi comprendre un pays dont le seul nom évoque une danseuse. L’auteur a retrouvé d’extraordinaires photos inédites des temples ensevelis sous la jungle ainsi que des dessins peu connus d’Auguste Rodin et de George Groslier. Etayé par les textes des plus grands spécialistes khmers, français et américains - Suppy ... Leer resumen completo

A TRAVELLER'S HISTORY OF SCOTLAND (4TH ED)
CASSELL PLC, 2002

Resumen del libro

This book is part of a series for those who want a comprehensive view of a nation's past history from earliest times up to the present day. This book begins with Scotland's first people and their culture. Before the Vikings in 900 it was a land of romantic kingdoms and saints, gradually overtaken by more pragmatic struggles for power. Centuries of strife led up to the turbulent years of Mary Queen of Scots, the Calvinist legacy of Knox and the bitterness of final defeat. The dreams of the Jacobites are contrasted with the cruel reality of the end of the Stewarts and the Act of Union with England. Scotland now saw an age of industry and despoliation. The result was much emigration and an obsession with the nation's past which glorified the legends of the Highlander and the Clans. In this century, a loss of identity and a drift to the south has been followed by a new surge of national pride with higher aspirations for the future. This book explains the roots of Scottish history and aims to be a useful companion for visitors. ... Leer resumen completo

THE GENERAL STRIKE: A HISTORICAL PORTRAIT
HOUSE OF STRATUS, 2001

Resumen del libro

In May 1926, Britain was gripped by what became known as the General Strike. This downing of tools lasted for nine days, during which time it divided the people, threatened the survival of the government of the day and brought the country nearer to revolution that it perhaps had ever been. In this accurate and lively accoun t, Symons draws on contemporary press reports, letters and oral sources, along with TUC records to provide an invaluable historical account of the remarkable event and the people and places that featured so prominently in it. Julian Symons is primarily remembered as a master of the art of crime writing. However, in his eighty-two years he produced an enormously varied body of work. Social and military history, biography and criticism were all subjects he touched upon with remarkable success, and he held a distinguished reputation in each field. His novels were consistently highly individual and expertly crafted, raising him above other crime writers of his day. It is for this that he was awarded various prizes, and, in 1982, named as Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America - an honour accorded to only three other English writers before him: Graham Greene, Eric Ambler and Daphne Du Maurier. He succeeded Agatha Christie as the president of Britain's Detection Club, a position he held from 1976 to 1985, and in 1990 he was awarded the Cartier Diamond Dagger from the British Crime Writers for his lifetime's achievement in crime fiction. Symons died in 1994. ... Leer resumen completo

Mead's anthropological examination of seven Pacific island tribes analyzes the dynamics of primitive cultures to explore the evolving meaning of "male" and "female" in modern American society.

THE PALAEOLITHIC SOCIETIES OF EUROPE: THE PALAEOLITHIC SETTLEMENT OF EUROPE (2ND ED.)
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 1999

Resumen del libro

Palaeolithic societies have been a neglected topic in the discussion of human origins. In this book, which succeeds and replaces The Palaeolithic Settlement of Europe, published by Cambridge University Press in 1986, Clive Gamble challenges the established view that the social life of Europeans over the 500,000 years of the European Palaeolithic must remain a mystery. In the past forty years archaeologists have recovered a wealth of information from sites throughout the continent. Professor Gamble now introduces a new approach to this material. He examines the archaeological evidence from stone tools, hunting and campsites for information on the scale of social interaction, and the forms of social life. Taking a pan-European view of the archaeological evidence, he reconstructs ancient human societies, and introduces new perspectives on the unique social experience of human beings. ...

ART OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN FRONTIER
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS, 1994

Resumen del libro

Art of the American Indian Frontier examines an incomparable collection of nineteenth-century Native American art from the North American Woodlands, Prairie, and Plains. The collection resulted from the efforts of Milford G. Chandler and Richard A. Pohrt, whose early childhood fascination with the Indian frontier past evolv ed into a deep and comprehensive interest in Native American ceremonies, beliefs, and art. Though neither was wealthy or enjoyed the sponsorship of a museum, they traveled extensively early in the twentieth century, buying or trading for objects they could not resist. This volume presents the Detroit Institute of Art's Chandler-Pohrt collection with detailed documentation and commentary. Clothing and accessories of porcupine quill and buckskin, woven textiles, bags, beadwork, necklaces, rawhide paintings, smoking pipes, tools, vessels and utensils, pictographs, and visionary paintings are portrayed in 220 stunning color plates. Complementing the illustrations are essays dealing with historical context, ethnographic issues, and the lives and philosophies of the collectors. ... Leer resumen completo
