Description : Wise, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, Persepolis tells the story of Marjane Satrapi's life in Tehran from the ages of six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah's regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken child of radical Marxists, and the great-grandaughter of Iran's last emperor, Satrapi bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Amidst the tragedy, Marjane's child's eye view adds immediacy and humour, and her story of a childhood at once outrageous and ordinary, beset by the unthinkable and yet buffered by an extraordinary and loving family, is immensely moving. It is also very beautiful; Satrapi's drawings have the power of the very best woodcuts.

Description : At the distant beginning of Western civilization, according to European tradition, Greece stands as an insular, isolated, near-miracle of burgeoning culture. This book traverses the ancient world's three great centers of cultural exchange--Babylonian Nineveh, Egyptian Memphis, and Iranian Persepolis--to situate classical Greece in its proper historical place, at the Western margin of a more comprehensive Near Eastern-Aegean cultural community that emerged in the Bronze Age and expanded westward in the first millennium B.C. In concise and inviting fashion, Walter Burkert lays out the essential evidence for this ongoing reinterpretation of Greek culture. In particular, he points to the critical role of the development of writing in the ancient Near East, from the achievement of cuneiform in the Bronze Age to the rise of the alphabet after 1000 B.C. From the invention and diffusion of alphabetic writing, a series of cultural encounters between "Oriental" and Greek followed. Burkert details how the Assyrian influences of Phoenician and Anatolian intermediaries, the emerging fascination with Egypt, and the Persian conquests in Ionia make themselves felt in the poetry of Homer and his gods, in the mythic foundations of Greek cults, and in the first steps toward philosophy. A journey through the fluid borderlines of the Near East and Europe, with new and shifting perspectives on the cultural exchanges these produced, this book offers a clear view of the multicultural field upon which the Greek heritage that formed Western civilization first appeared.

Description : The acclaimed author of TYRELL and KENDRA returns to PUSH to continue Tyrell's astonishing story. Tyrell's father is just out of jail, and Tyrell doesn't know how to deal with that. It's bad enough that his brother Troy is in foster care and that his mother is no help whatsoever. Now there's another thing up in his face, just when he's trying to settle down. Tyrell's father has plans of his own, and doesn't seem to care whether or not Tyrell wants to go along with them. Tyrell can see the crash that's coming -- with his dad, with the rest of his family, with the girls he's seeing -- but he's not sure he can stop it. Or if he even wants to.

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 : The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 was a landmark event in Egyptology that was celebrated around the world. Had Howard Carter found his prize a few years earlier, however, the treasures of Tut might now be in the British Museum in London rather than the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. That's because the years between World War I and World War II were a transitional period in Middle Eastern archaeology, as nationalists in Egypt and elsewhere asserted their claims to antiquities discovered within their borders. These claims were motivated by politics as much as by scholarship, with nationalists seeking to unite citizens through pride in their ancient past as they challenged Western powers that still exercised considerable influence over local governments and economies. James Goode's analysis of archaeological affairs in Turkey, Egypt, Iran, and Iraq during this period offers fascinating new insight into the rise of nationalism in the Middle East, as well as archaeological and diplomatic history. The first such work to compare archaeological-nationalistic developments in more than one country, Negotiating for the Past draws on published and archival sources in Arabic, English, French, German, Persian, and Turkish. Those sources reveal how nationalists in Iraq and Iran observed the success of their counterparts in Egypt and Turkey, and were able to hold onto discoveries at legendary sites such as Khorsabad and Persepolis. Retaining artifacts allowed nationalists to build museums and control cultural heritage. As Goode writes, "Going to the national museum became a ritual of citizenship." Western archaeologists became identified (in the eyes of many) as agents of imperialism, thus making their work more difficult, and often necessitating diplomatic intervention. The resulting "negotiations for the past" pulled patrons (such as John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and Lord Carnarvon), archaeologists (James Breasted and Howard Carter), nationalist leaders (Ataturk and Sa'd Zaghlul), and Western officials (Charles Evan Hughes and Lord Curzon) into intractable historical debates with international implications that still resonate today.

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.

The authors cover a wide swath of issues, ranging from a detailed examination of Shi'i traditions governing legal interpretations about everyday affairs like prayer to the intellectual exchanges between Jewish and Muslim scholars of medieval Islamic tradition on works of logic. Taken together, these articles develop key inquiries concerning Islamic law in unique ways.

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.
