Excerpt from The Origin and Influence of the Thoroughbred Horse It only remains for me to express my gratitude to the many kind friends who have aided me in various ways: Dr James Cossar Ewart, Regius Professor Of Natural History in the University of Edinburgh, has given me much of his time and has read through all my proofs, and twice through those Of the first two chapters; whilst Mr R. I. Pocock, F the Superintendent of the Zoological Society's Garden, Regent's Park, has given me valuable aid by reading the proofs Of the chapter on the Living Equidae. Mr A. E. Shipley, Fellow Of Christ's College, and University Lecturer in In vertebrate Zoology, and editor Of the Cambridge Biological Series, has also read the proofs and has aided me with various suggestions. Had it not been for their criticism and advice the shortcomings Of this book, of which no one can be more sensible than the writer, would have been still more numerous; but for the many that remain I alone am responsible. TO Dr W. L. H. Duckworth, Fellow Of Jesus College, University Lecturer in Physical Anthropology, I am indebted for various important references, and above all for having called my attention to a hitherto unpublished head and neck of a quagga in the Elgin Museum, which I figure and describe (pp. 438 Mr A. W. Howitt, Hon. D.sc., the well-known Australian ethno logist, Of Metung, Victoria, has supplied me with the valuable account Of the feral horses Of Eastern Victoria, which I have embodied; Dr R. S. Conway, Professor Of Latin in Manchester University, and late Fellow Of Gonville and Caius College. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Cosmopolis

Author: Daniel S. Richter
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199773203
Release Date: 2011-04-01
Genre: History

This is a book about the ways in which various intellectuals in the post-classical Mediterranean imagined the human community as a unified, homogenous whole composed of a diversity of parts. More specifically, it explores how authors of the second century CE adopted and adapted a particular ethnic and cultural discourse that had been elaborated by late fifth- and fourth-century BCE Athenian intellectuals. At the center of this book is a series of contests over the meaning of lineage and descent and the extent to which the political community is or ought to be coterminous with what we might call a biologically homogenous collectivity. The study suggests that early imperial intellectuals found in late classical and early Hellenistic thought a way of accommodating the claims of both ethnicity and culture in a single discourse of communal identity. The idea of the unity of humankind evolved in the fifth and fourth centuries as a response to and an engine for the creation of a rapidly shrinking and increasingly integrated oikoumenê . The increased presence of outsiders in the classical city-state as well as the creation of sources of authority that lay outside of the polis destabilized the idea of the polis as a kin group (natio). Beginning in the early fourth century and gaining great momentum in the wake of Alexander's conquest of the East, traditional dichotomies such as Greek and barbarian lost much of their explanatory power. In the second-century CE, by contrast, the empire of the Romans imposed a political space that was imagined by many to be coterminous with the oikoumenê itself. One of the central claims of this study is that the forms of cosmopolitan and ecumenical thought that emerged in both moments did so as responses to the idea that the natio - the kin group - is (or ought to be) the basis for any human collectivity.
