Description : The Achaemenid Persian Empire, at its greatest territorial extent under Darius I (r.522–486 BCE), held sway over territory stretching from the Indus River Valley to southeastern Europe and from the western Himalayas to northeast Africa. In this book, Matt Waters gives a detailed historical overview of the Achaemenid period while considering the manifold interpretive problems historians face in constructing and understanding its history. This book offers a Persian perspective even when relying on Greek textual sources and archaeological evidence. Waters situates the story of the Achaemenid Persians in the context of their predecessors in the mid-first millennium BCE and through their successors after the Macedonian conquest, constructing a compelling narrative of how the empire retained its vitality for more than two hundred years (c.550–330 BCE) and left a massive imprint on Middle Eastern as well as Greek and European history.

Description : This incisive study analyzes young adult (YA) literature as a cultural phenomenon, explaining why this explosion of books written for and marketed to teen readers has important consequences for how we understand reading in America. As visible and volatile shorthand for competing views of teen reading, YA literature has become a lightning rod for a variety of aesthetic, pedagogical, and popular literature controversies. Noted scholar Loretta Gaffney not only examines how YA literature is defended and critiqued within the context of rapid cultural and technological changes, but also highlights how struggles about teen reading matter to—and matter in—the future of librarianship and education. The work bridges divides between literary criticism, professional practices, canon building, literature appreciation, genre classifications and recommendations, standard histories, and commentary. It will be useful in YA literature course settings in Library and Information Science, Education, and English departments. It will also be of interest to those who study right wing culture and movements in media studies, cultural studies, American studies, sociology, political science, and history. It is of additional interest to those who study print culture, publishing and the book, histories of teenagers, and research on teen reading. Finally, it will offer those interested in teenagers, literature, libraries, technology, and politics a fresh way to look at book challenges and controversies over YA literature.

Description : Spanning over a period of more than five decades since its inception, Iran’s nuclear programme is the most protracted civilian nuclear program in the world and one of the most politicized projects in Iran’s history. 'Iran and the Nuclear Question' offers a historiographical portrait of Iran’s early nuclear program under Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi. Using declassified archival material, the book thematically chronicles the program’s genesis, evolutionary trajectory, and devolution from the 1950s through to the 1970s. It also catalogues the Revolutionary Iran’s early socialization into the atom and the Islamic Republic’s gradual change of heart about nuclear energy that culminated in the incremental resuscitation of the Shah’s nuclear enterprise in the 1980s. As the first archive-based account of one of the most long-lasting and capital-intensive nuclear enterprises during the Cold War, ‘Iran and the Nuclear Question’ is a valuable resource for students and scholars of Iranian, Middle East and Security Studies. Written in a clear and accessible format, it will also appeal to those with a more general interest in Iran and its nuclear journey.

Description : Scholars working in a number of disciplines _ archaeologists, classicists, epigraphers, papyrologists, Assyriologists, Egyptologists, Mayanists, philologists, and ancient historians of all stripes _ routinely engage with ancient textual sources that are either material remains from the archaeological record or historical products of other connections between the ancient world and our own. Examining the archaeology-text nexus from multiple perspectives, contributors to this volume discuss current theoretical and practical problems that have grown out of their work at the boundary of the division between archaeology and the study of early inscriptions. In 12 representative case-studies drawn from research in Asia, Africa, the Mediterranean, and Mesoamerica, scholars use various lenses to critically examine the interface between archaeology and the study of ancient texts, rethink the fragmentation of their various specialized disciplines, and illustrate the best in current approaches to contextual analysis. The collection of essays also highlights recent trends in the development of documentation and dissemination technologies, engages with the ethical and intellectual quandaries presented by ancient inscriptions that lack archaeological context, and sets out to find profitable future directions for interdisciplinary research.

Description : IMAGINAIRE DU JARDIN Le jardin, espace matriciel du surgissement de la vie Terre de jouvence, le jardin exalte le renouveau continu de la nature dans ses rythmes et ses manifestations, en prise avec le grand agencement cosmique qui fait succéder la nuit au jour, l’ombre à la lumière, la mort à la vie dans une régénération continue. Terre matricielle, il accueille en son sein la figure de l’énigme par excellence : le surgissement de la vie qui porte en elle les germes de son déclin et conduit à la mort annonciatrice d’une nouvelle vie, dont témoigne le cycle annuel de la végétation. Terre matricielle de jouvence, en phase avec le grand cycle cosmique de l’ombre et de la lumière dont la végétation est emblématique dans son devenir cyclique, le jardin est l’emblème de la métamorphose et de la création permanente au cœur de la mutation universelle. Espace matriciel du surgissement de la vie, le jardin est un espace médian qui sépare et unit la potentialité et son actualisation, le non-être et l’être, l’ombre et la lumière ; le retour au non-être, à la potentialité, à l’indéterminé étant le passage nécessaire conduisant à un nouvel accomplissement, au renouvellement et à la régénération. Énigme qui fait du jardin à la fois un lieu de dissolution, d’absorption dans le non-être et d’éternel renouveau de l’être. C’est cette énigme, ancrée au plus profond des représentations du monde du cosmothéisme de la Haute Antiquité du Moyen-Orient, portant sur la dissolution et le renouvellement, sur la récurrence au cœur de la mutation universelle de la vie, qui flue en un dépassement toujours dépassé, que nous nous proposons d’accompagner, au gré des questionnements et des réponses que les grands foyers de civilisation qui ont rêvé les jardins : l’Égypte, la Mésopotamie, la Grèce et l’Iran, lui ont apporté entre la fin du Néolithique (VIIe-VIe millénaire), et l’avènement de l’empire perse, qui déploie sa domination sur l’ensemble du Moyen-Orient à la charnière des VIe et Ve siècles avant notre ère. Notre propos ne sera pas de retracer l’histoire de l’art des jardins dans ces aires de civilisation, mais de les interroger, au long de leurs parcours, afin d’appréhender la façon dont chacune rêva le jardin, pour en faire – à l’aide d’une tétrade de signes conventionnels : la source, le mont, l’arbre et l’oiseau (serpent) –, le symbole d’une « Terre de rêve », « en suspens entre terre et ciel », qu’elle soit « jardin funéraire », en Égypte, « jardin du prince » ou « jardin du philosophe », en Mésopotamie et en Grèce, ou encore « temple-dans-un-bosquet » ou « jardin-paradis », en Élam ou en Perse, sur le Plateau iranien.

Description : Some of the most noteworthy graphic novels and comic books of recent years have been entirely autobiographical. In Graphic Subjects, Michael A. Chaney brings together a lively mix of scholars to examine the use of autobiography within graphic novels, including such critically acclaimed examples as Art Spiegelman’s Maus, David Beauchard’s Epileptic, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, Alan Moore’s Watchmen, and Gene Yang’s American Born Chinese. These essays, accompanied by visual examples, illuminate the new horizons that illustrated autobiographical narrative creates. The volume insightfully highlights the ways that graphic novelists and literary cartoonists have incorporated history, experience, and life stories into their work. The result is a challenging and innovative collection that reveals the combined power of autobiography and the graphic novel.

Description : Although frequently vilified, Iran is a nation of great intellectual variety and depth, and one of the oldest continuing civilizations in the world. Its political impact has been tremendous, not only on its neighbors in the Middle East but also throughout the world. From the time of the prophet Zoroaster, to the powerful ancient Persian Empires, to the revolution of 1979, the hostage crisis, and the current standoff over Iran's nuclear ambitions, Michael Axworthy vividly narrates the nation's rich history. He explains clearly and carefully both the complex succession of dynasties that ruled ancient Iran and the surprising ethnic diversity of the modern country, held together by a common culture. With Iran again the focus of the world's attention, A History of Iran is an essential guide to understanding this volatile nation.
