Current Perspectives in the Archaeology of Ghana

Author: Anquandah, James
Publisher: Sub-Saharan Publishers
ISBN: 9789988860233
Release Date: 2015-04-26
Genre: Social Science

This collection of essays on archaeology and heritage studies is authored by local and expatriate scholars who are either past or current practitioners in archaeological work in Ghana. They are from Ghana, UK, US and Canada. The subject matter covered includes the history and evolution of the discipline in Ghana; the method and theory or 'how to do it' in archaeology, field research reports, and syntheses on findings from past and recent investigations. The eclectic or multidisciplinary strategy has been the research vogue in Ghanaian archaeology recently, and this is reflected in the various chapters. The essays engage with current theoretical trends in global archaeology and also focus on the role and status of archaeology as a discipline in Ghanaian society today. Archaeology is a relatively 'novel' subject to many in Ghana. This Reader will, therefore, be a huge asset to local students and experts alike. Foreign scholars will also find it very useful.

The Unseen Face of Japan

Author: David C. Lewis
ISBN: 1908860030
Release Date: 2013-06-01
Genre: Religion

The things which are right in front of us can often be the things which are most hidden. In Japan, the word omote means 'face'. But it also means 'mask' - something that a person uses to hide an inner reality. Face-value questions - 'Are the Japanese religious?' 'What do they believe?' - produce face-value answers. We need to delve deeper. This book explores the motivations behind why Japanese people act in a 'religious' way, based on what ordinary people say about their attitudes and experiences. In the process it also uncovers core values within Japanese culture. By understanding these motivations and values, we discover that the Son of Man came not to destroy Japanese culture but to fulfil it. This fully revised and updated edition includes data from the latest surveys of Japanese attitudes, church statistics, and the most recent research into Japanese society and religion.
