It examines what we know about how horses understand us and how we perceive them, as well as the implications of actively recognising other animals as actors within shared social lives. This book explores how interspecies relationships work, using a variety of examples to demonstrate how horses and people build social lives. Considering horses as social actors presents new possibilities for improving the quality of animal lives, the human condition and human-horse relations.

Iranica in the Achaemenid Period ca 550 330 B C

Author: Jan Tavernier
Publisher: Peeters Publishers
ISBN: 9042918330
Release Date: 2007
Genre: History

This book collects and discusses the Old Iranian divine names, personal names, geographical names (toponyms, hydronyms and oronyms) and loanwords, which are attested in texts written in Aramaic, Babylonian, Egyptian, Elamite, Lycian, Lydian and Phrygian. The texts, both royal inscriptions and documentary texts, are discovered in the entire territory of the Achaemenid Empire (from Egypt to Bactria), which controlled the Ancient Near East from ca. 550 to 331 B.C. The Iranica discussed in this book are divided into four categories: (1) directly transmitted Iranica, (2) semi-directly transmitted Iranica, (3) foreign Iranica and (4) indirectly transmitted Iranica (the so-called "Altiranische Nebenuberlieferung"). All expressions, which do not belong to one of these categories, are brought together in a section called "Incerta". The etymology and linguistic setting of each Iranian expression is studied and a list of occurrences is added to this analysis.

A Critical Survey of Studies on Dutch Colonial History

Author: W.Ph. Coolhaas
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401187862
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: History

This volume of the Bibliographical Series is a thoroughly revised English edition, with many additions, of the author's 'Chronique de l'histoire coloniale. Outre-mer neerlandais' published in May 1958 in the French periodical 'Revue d'histoire des colonies' (Tome XLIV, 1957, pp. 311-448). A stricter observance of bibliographical detail has been aimed at, mainly through the efforts of the editorial staff of the Institute. In some instances, however, the form of a continuous narrative, chosen for this bibliography, made it impossible to give full titles. The spelling of geographical names and names of languages is according to the English romanization of Malay. CONTENTS Page Introduction 1 I. Archives 3 II.

Nathan Coley To the Bramley Family of Frestonia

Author: Nathan Coley
Publisher:
ISBN: 1910221058
Release Date: 2015-07-19
Genre:

'To the Bramley Family of Frestonia' is a publication documenting a public art project in London by Glasgow-based contemporary artist Nathan Coley (b.1967). At a time when housing and the property market are at the center of much social, political, economic, and cultural debate, Coley's project is a pertinent and thought-provoking exploration of issues of housing, ownership, history, and activism. In the mid-late 1960s, the Greater London Council moved local authority tenants out of their run-down terraced houses in the Freston Road area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and into newly built blocks of flats nearby. The Greater London Council was planning to knock down the terraced houses and to regenerate the area, but the plans were beset by delays so the houses lay derelict for almost a decade. During the 1970s a group of squatters began moving into the old houses - there were around 150 people living in 35 houses at one point toward the end of the decade. The group, which was an eclectic mixture of freethinkers, hippies, creatives, drop-outs, and activists, became a somewhat radicalised community calling themselves the "Free Independent State of Frestonia", taking the name Frestonia from Freston Road. The squatters self-organised to the point that they printed their own stamps, had their own passports and even applied to the UN for independence from the rest of the United Kingdom. In a legal manoeuvre to prevent the authorities from evicting them without rehousing them, all the members of the community made themselves into one large family and changed their surname to Bramley, taking the name of another road on the estate. They adopted the latin phrase "nos sumus una familia" - "we are all one family" as their motto. The residents of Frestonia developed a strong social fabric and complex cultural life before it fell into decline due to the crime, drugs, and social problems that gradually infiltrated the community.In late summer 2015, on the site where Frestonia once stood, the first phase of apartments designed by Haworth Tompkins Architects and built by the charitable organisation The Peabody Trust was completed and its new residents moved in. With one third of the properties for sale, one third for rent, and one third under the management of the Housing Association, the complex, called The Silchester (More West) development, will consist of 112 apartments.Nathan Coley was commissioned to make new artwork for the site. With its shapes and forms based on those of an apple tree - inspired by the history of the Bramley apple that gave its name to the Frestonia residents - Coley has not only made a striking steel and gold leaf rooftop sculpture, but also 112 small versions of the same sculpture that have been given to each of the residents as a house warming present. In doing so, Coley not only connects the new housing complex and its residents with its local history, but to wider discourses of modernism and sculpture, art and society, capitalism and alternative modes of living, hegemony and dissent. The publication, which forms part of the artist's commissioned project, presents a variety of texts, images, and documentation relating to the new housing development, to the history of the Bramley apple and to Frestonia - including a selection of archive photographs of Frestonia taken by former resident Tony Sleep.

Epistemic Freedom in Africa

Author: Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9780429960192
Release Date: 2018-06-27
Genre: Education

Epistemic Freedom in Africa is about the struggle for African people to think, theorize, interpret the world and write from where they are located, unencumbered by Eurocentrism. The imperial denial of common humanity to some human beings meant that in turn their knowledges and experiences lost their value, their epistemic virtue. Now, in the twenty-first century, descendants of enslaved, displaced, colonized, and racialized peoples have entered academies across the world, proclaiming loudly that they are human beings, their lives matter and they were born into valid and legitimate knowledge systems that are capable of helping humanity to transcend the current epistemic and systemic crises. Together, they are engaging in diverse struggles for cognitive justice, fighting against the epistemic line which haunts the twenty-first century. The renowned historian and decolonial theorist Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni offers a penetrating and well-argued case for centering Africa as a legitimate historical unit of analysis and epistemic site from which to interpret the world, whilst simultaneously making an equally strong argument for globalizing knowledge from Africa so as to attain ecologies of knowledges. This is a dual process of both deprovincializing Africa, and in turn provincializing Europe. The book highlights how the mental universe of Africa was invaded and colonized, the long-standing struggles for 'an African university', and the trajectories of contemporary decolonial movements such as Rhodes Must Fall and Fees Must Fall in South Africa. This landmark work underscores the fact that only once the problem of epistemic freedom has been addressed can Africa achieve political, cultural, economic and other freedoms. This groundbreaking new book is accessible to students and scholars across Education, History, Philosophy, Ethics, African Studies, Development Studies, Politics, International Relations, Sociology, Postcolonial Studies and the emerging field of Decolonial Studies.

The Buried War

Author: Bill Beltz
Publisher: Balboa Press
ISBN: 9781504345514
Release Date: 2016-03-07
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

The Buried War is a bugle cry; a Reveille of rage and a eulogy for the lost souls of war. It is the story of my father, his PTSD as a WW II veteran, my own journey as a Franciscan monk and heartfelt struggle with depression throughout my life. It is the story of a family from Alliance, Ohio weathering the storm of incredible poverty and hopelessness while living with the insanity of a father impaired and afflicted by the war. It is the story of my search for purpose and meaning by following the way of St. Francis of Assisi even after leaving behind the robe, the cord and the sandals.
