ABULAFIA, David, ed. The Mediterranean in History. Edited by David Abulafia. Texts by David Abulafia, Oliver Rackham, Marlene Suano, Mario Torelli, Geoffrey Rickman, John Pryor, Michel Balard, Molly Greene, Jeremy Black. Los Angeles : The J. Paul Getty Museum, (2003). First US Printing. Pp. (4),[5]-320. With 161 colour and 147 black-and-white illustrations. Large 8vo, bluecloth with gilt lettering to spine. "For over four thousand years the Medi terranean was the center of Western civilization. Geographically, it is a world in miniature, an inland sea whose shores encompass every type of terrain and climate -- barren deserts, fertile plains, snow-capped mountains, peninsulas, islands, and separate minor seas with distinct characters of their own. Historically, it has been the meeting place of the cultures of Europe, Asia, and Africa, the battleground of races and nations, and the focus of three great religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The distinguished Mediterranean scholar David Abulafia has brought together a team of eightleading specialists from many countries to tell this enthralling and compl ex story as a connected narrative: from a description of the physical setting, the prehistoric traders, and the struggle between Phoenicians, Greeks, and Etruscans ending in Roman victory, to a discussion of the post-Roman nations, the Christian powers in the north, the Islamic powers in the south, the domination by England and France, and, finally, the twentieth century, divided between war and mass tourism. This richly illustrated book offers contemporary historical writing at its best and will engage specialists, students, and general readers alike." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. "Thephysical setting" (Oliver Rackham); 2. "The first trading empires: prehist ory to c.1000 BC" (Marlene Suano); 3. "The battle for the sea routes: 1000-300 BC" (Mario Torelli); 4.

ADAS, Michael. Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, (1979). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxvii,(3),3-243,(1). With a few illustrations in the text. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine.

A volume in the Studies in Comparative World History series.

Michael Adas (b. February 4, 1943, Detroit, Michigan).

"This study provides new approaches to the writing of comparative history and to the analysis of social protest movements, by combining five case studies with other evidence on millennial movements, Michael Adas constructs a framework for the study of the relationship between millenarian expectations, prophetic leaders, and violent social protest.

The participants in these rebellions sought to change unacceptable sociocultural systems by extralegal means rather than by constitutional methods, by force rather than by reform, withdrawal, or passive resistance. Each of the groups mounted a rebellion aimed at the overthrow not only of the political regime but also of the existing sociocultural order. The author views these rebellions from the perspectives of both the colonizer incumbents and the participants themselves. He analyzes the causes which give rise to these movements of protest gainstst the changes and dislocations engendered by European conquest and colonization of diverse societies in Africa, Asia, and Oceania. He moves from an examination of causation to a consideration of the factors that influenced the mode of protest that was adopted and he discusses the techniques of organization, ritual, and magic that were used to offset European technological superiority. He pays special attention to the careers of the prophets who played central roles in these movements and to the importance of their millenarian visions as catalysts of protests. The work concludes with a discussion of the patterns displayed by the actual revolts, the campaigns of repression launched by the Europeans, and the historical legacy of these movements.

The five rebellions that Michael Adas examines in this study are: the revolt led by Prince Dipanagara in the Netnerlands East Indies (1825-1830), the Pai Maire or Hau Hau movement of the Maoris of New Zealand (1864-c. 1867), the Birsa disturbance among the Mundas of Chota Nagpur in east-central India (1890-1900), the Maji Maji rebellions in German East Africa (1905-1906), and the Saya San uprisings in Burma (1930-1932)." (from the dj).

In assembling these narratives from the unwritten literature of this area, Dr. Radin has drawn upon the so-called true Negro tribes of west Agfrica, the Bantu-speaking tribes of central, east, and south Africa, the half-Hamites of the Nile headwaters, and the Bushmen and Hottentots of the extreme south and south-west. Dr. Radin emphasizes that theirs is possibly the most sophisticated of all aboriginal literatures, though it has not become so well known as the sculpture of native Africa, which during the past fifty years has so strongly influenced the art of the contemporary western world."

(6),[vii]-x,(2),[3]-292,(2). 8vo, greycloth with metallic purple lettering to front and spine. "In her introduct ion to 'Resisting Discrimination', Vijay Agnew quotes Keibo Oiwa: 'We rarely encounter accounts of what the persecuted themselves felt, thought, wished to do, and actually did or failed to do; what meanings they attached to their thoughts and actions.' As Agnew observes, there is little Canadian feminist literature, from a minority perspective, on racism in feminist practice. 'Resisting Discrimination' is ground-breaking book. Focusing on the experiences of women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, the volume exploresthe realities of race, class, and gender discrimination in twentieth-centu ry Canada. Agnew uses an integrated approach, adopting methodologies from political science, hiostory, sociology, and women's studies to investigate history and politics of Asian and black women throughout this century and the exclusion of these women from theory and practice of mainstream feminism.She also looks at the relationship between the state and community-based o rganizations of immigrant women, and the struggles of these women to provide social services to non-English-speaking working-class women through theircommunity-based organizations. Agnew's views are critical of white feminis t theories and practices. Her goal is to sensitize the reader to another perspective and to empower minority women by making them the subject of theirown recent history and politics. She seeks to open up the possibility of f uller cooperation among feminists across lines of race and class, and to suggest new lines of development for feminist theories and methodologies." - from the introductory blurb.

She was pushed to her death from an eighth-storey window and they calledit suicide. Blaney remembered her from Berlin all those years ago -- that maniacal laugh of hers with the remorseless rhythm of a police siren. People were always reminding Blaney of something he already knew: he was not cutout to be a spy. That's why he'd left it all behind in the early 1960s and taken to selling people 'security' against a rising tide of armed crime. I t was currently his opinion that there was no such thing as security, just as there was no such thing as an ex-spy. Here he was, seventeen years later, with McIver breathing down his neck to discover why everyone connected with the Berlin operation was suddenly dropping dead. It was an interesting enough question, since Blaney had a fine chance of being next." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. Uncommon. 100.00

ALBION, Robert Greenhalgh. Seaports South of Sahara : The Achievements of an American Steamship Service. With the Collaboration of Jennie B. Pope.[With a foreword by VIce Admiral Edward L. Cochrane]. New York: Appleton-Century-Crofts, (1959). Pp. (4),v-xii,1-316, frontis.+ 8 leaves of plates. Illustrated. Map endpapers. 8vo, blue cloth. "This is the story of American maritime relations with South, East, and West Africa, where the unexpected has suddenly become the order of the day. It is there that the trade of the United States has increased at a faster rate during the past four decades than anywhere else in the world. In this book, intertwined with the broad aspects of African trade and national shipping policy, is the specific achievement of the Farrell shipping service in helping link them together. [...] Having visited the coasts of Africa all the way from Cape Town to Zanzibar and from the Canaries and the Guinea Coast to the Congo, [Albion] gives a colorful picture of all sorts of ports of call and exotic cargoes in the amazingcontrasts of Africa today. There is much about the ships, of course, and l ong sea run down the South Atlantic and into the gales ofthe Indian Ocean; but also about the actual workings of a steamship line -- a mystery to mostof us. We hear of the captains and crews, the stevedores and longshoremen, the agents and overseas representatives, and the New York headquarters all the way up to the two Farrell brothers." - from the dj.
