Kingship in the Mycenaean World and its reflections in the Oral Tradition

Kingship in the Mycenaean World and its reflections in the Oral Tradition

This part of the complex was entered from the central courtyard on the west by
way of two sizable ramps (7.72 m x 5.75 m and 5.12 ... The ramps facilitated the
movement of large quantities of goods which were to be stored within the
building.

Section 508 Compliant During the last few decades, there has been great interest in the problems of defining the extent and nature of kingship in the Mycenaean world. Questions concerning the degree of economic and religious power held by the king have been given special emphasis. This book surveys the conclusions drawn by individual scholars studying the Linear B tablets, contrasts their theories with our knowledge of the Mycenaean kingdoms as derived from the archaeological record, and finally compares this evidence with possible reflections in the oral tradition, specifically in the Iliad and Odyssey . This approach leads to the suggestion that the king in the Mycenaean period had only limited power over the society and its economy. Although the king appears to have controlled a large segment of the economy, it is argued here that other individuals and family groups within the kingdom also had a certain degree of economic independence.

This volume contains selected papers of Lawrence R Klein in economics, econometric theory and applications in modeling, forecasting, macroeconomic analysis, international economics and public policy. Nobel Laureate Lawrence Klein's bibliography spans a half-century, including books, articles, and chapters in conference proceedings, festschriften, and thematic books. One such volume of solely scientific collections, mainly from his relatively early articles, has already been published. The present volume is different, it includes some articles, but largely chapters, or book excerpts that were mostly written since 1980, the approximate cut-off date of the prior volume, and the year of his Nobel Prize. Also, it includes things that were published in very limited or obscure editions. Thus it provides a more complete picture of his scholarly career and his current reflections on the state of economic science. All these writings are in the vanguard of thinking about economics in a global domain. The thirty-five-plus selections are organized in five parts, by major themes. An editorial commentary introduces each part. The introductory chapters include Klein's autobiographical research commentary, and his professional life philosophy.

This volume marks fifty years of an innovative approach to writing economic history often called "The Cliometrics Revolution." The book presents memoirs of personal development, intellectual lives and influences, new lines of historical research, long-standing debates, a growing international scholarly community, and the contingencies that guide and re-direct academic careers. In conversation with cliometricians of the next generation, 25 pioneering scholars reflect on changes in the practice of economic history they have observed and have helped to bring about, examining the rise of Western economies and their economic interrelationships, and the impact of modern economic growth on human health, mortality and even happiness. The conversations presented here are engaging, informative and – more often than one might expect – humorous. Together with a framework provided by the editors, they tell a tale of how cliometricians, their allies and their critics, have helped to transform what we know about the economic past.

Immigrants from South Asia first began settling in Washington and Oregon in the nineteenth century, but because of restrictions placed on Asian immigration to the United States in the early twentieth century, the vast majority have come to the region since World War II. Roots and Reflections uses oral history to show how South Asian immigrant experiences were shaped by the region and how they differed over time and across generations. It includes the stories of immigrants from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka who arrived from the end of World War II through the 1980s.

In recent years, the number of empirical studies examiningattachment in adolescence has grown considerably, with mostfocusing on individual difference in attachment security. Thisvolume goes a step further in extending knowledge andunderstanding. The physical, cognitive, emotional, and socialchanges that characterize adolescence invite a closer conceptuallook at attachment processes and organization during this period.The chapter authors, leading researchers in attachment inadolescence, address key topics in attachment process inadolescence. These include issues such as the normative distancingfrom parents and the growing importance of peers, the formation ofvaried attachment hierarchies, the changing nature of attachmentdynamics from issues of survival to issues of affect regulation,siblings' similarity in attachment representations, individualdifferences in social information processes in adolescence, andstability and change in attachment representations in a risksample. Together the chapters provide a compelling discussion ofintriguing issues and broaden our understanding of attachment inadolescence and the basic tenets of attachment theory at large.

A delightful book from beginning to end.” An eye-opening read! “This has been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time. Well written and stimulating one’s thoughts about this world we live in and what we hold dear and important.” Insightful and uplifting- great way to look at life! “Joe’s reflections are fun and inspiring, thought-provoking and charming. He takes ordinary moments and turns them into spiritual awakenings. He proves the bit of knowledge that Bagger Vance taught Junuh–there are no “ordinary moments.”
