3 ABED, Shukri B. AL-FARABI, Abu Nasr Mohammed) ARISTOTLE) Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi
State University of New York Press, Albany, 1991, ISBN:0791403971 
ABED, Shukri B. Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi. (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1991). First Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-xxv,(1),[1]-201,(3). 8vo, decorated pink glossy paper covered boards, dark blue titles to front and spine. "This book explores the reaction of tenth-century Arab philosopher Abu Nasr Alfarabi to the logical works of Aristotle. From numerous short treatises the author develops a systematic and comprehensive topical survey of Alfarabi's logical writings. The book is divided into two major parts: language as a tool of logic (chapters 1-5) and logic as a tool with which to analyze language (chapter 6). The first five chapters deal with Alfarabi's analysis of the meanings of various terms as they are used in logic and philosophy. Alfarabi refutes the Artab grammarians who claimed that Arab logicians were building a language within a language and shows that the philosophical meanings of terms are in fact their most original and essential meanings. The final chapter deals with Alfarabi's analysis of certain aspects of the Arabic language (such as copula) and demonstrates that Arabic, like any natural language, conforms to universal logical structures of which natural languages are only a concrete expression." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Particulars and Universals: An Introduction to Alfarabi's Logical Lexicon; 2. Definition and Description in Alfarabi's System; 3. The Concept of Essence in Alfarabi; 4. The Concepts of Demonstration, Division, and Classification and Their Relationship to Definition;5. The Term Mawjud in Nonlogical Contexts; 6. Alfarabi's Linguistic Philos ophy. Very good. 37.50

5 ABENDSCHÖN, Simone Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation
ECPR Press / European Consortium for Political Research Press, 2013, ISBN:1907301429 
ABENDSCHÖN, Simone. Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation. (Colchester, UK) : ECPR Press , (2013). Pp (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]- 280. 8vo, blue hardcovers. In the ECPR Studies in European Political Science series. "This book presents up-to-date empirical research on crucial questions of political socialisation. It suggests new approaches and answers to a classic, but still valid question of political socialisation research: 'Who learns what from whom, under what circumstances, and with what effects?' (Greenstein 1965: 13). The volume maintains that political socialisation is no universal or independent phenomenon, but one significantly shapedby the surrounding parameters of the society in which it is embedded. Ther efore, deficits in political socialisation research have become especially clear in light of political and societal changes over recent decades. The book contributes to two important discussions in the study of political socialisation: first, the question of the (relative) importance of socialisation agents and contexts, second - inextricably interwoven with the first - the timing of political socialisation. From a European perspective, articles in the volume shed light on old problems and topics of the field, using newmethodological approaches or dealing with long-neglected perspectives such as young children's democratic learning or political socialisation.. Inclu des quantitative approaches as well as innovative and explorative case studies." from rear cover. Contents : 1.

Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, Maryland, 2013, ISBN:9781612513096 
ABOUL-ENEIN, Youssef and Basil ABOUL-ENEIN. The Secret War for the Middle East : The Influence of Axis and Allied Intelligence Operations during WorldWar II. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2013). First Printin g. Pp. (6),vii-xxiii,(1),1-263,(1). 8vo, red paper-covered spine with off-white patterned paper-covered boards, silver lettering to spine. Foreword byEd Mornston. "Although often overlooked in studies of World War II, the Mi ddle East was actually a key theater for the Allies. Though the threat of direct Axis invasion by Rommel's Afrika Corps never materialized beyond the Egyptian Western Desert, this did not limit the Axis from probing the Middle East and cultivating potential collaborators and sympathizers. 'The Secret War for the Middle East' explores the infusion of the political language of anti-Semitism, nationalism, fascism, and Marxism that was among the ideological by-products of Axis and Allied intervention in the Arab world. The status of the British-dominated Middle East was tailor-made for exploitation by Axis intelligence and propaganda. German and Italian intelligence efforts fueled anti-British resentments; their influence shaped the course of Arab nationalist sentiments throughout the Middle East. These actions left an indelible mark on the sociopolitical evolution of the modern states of the Middle East, and their effects continue to be felt today. A relevant parallel to the pan-Arab cause was Hitler's attempt to bring ethnic Germans into the fold of a greater German state. In theory, as the Sudeten German stood on par with the Carpathian German, so, too, according to doctrinal theory, did the Yemeni stand in union with the Syrian in the imagination of thoseespousing pan-Arabism. As historic evidence demonstrates, this very common ality proved to be a major factor in the development of relations between Arab and fascist leaders. The Arab nationalist movement amounted to little more than a shapeless, fragmented counter-position to British imperialism, imported to the Arab East via Berlin for Nazi aspirations." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. The Palestine Question; 3. Hashemite Iraq; 4. Vichy French Syria: Operation Exporter; 5. Iran: Operation Countenance; 6. Turkey: Balancing Neutrality; 7.

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.

"ResurgentIslam: 1500-1700" (Molly Greene); 8. "The Mediterranean as a battleground of the European powers: 1700-1900" (Jeremy Black); 9. "A globalized Mediterranean: 1900-2000" (David Abulafia).

18 ADAMS, S.M. SOPHOCLES. Phoenix Supplementary Volumes, 3). Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Associationof Canada, Supplementary Volume III. Hardcover in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1967, 
(SOPHOCLES). ADAMS, S.M. Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Association of Canada, Supplementary Volume III. (Toronto): University of Toronto Press, (1967). Third Printing. Pp. (4),v-viii,(2),[1]-182. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In Professor Adams' view, a Sophocles play is not the work of a writer feeling his way, with occasional flashes of genius, towards a later and more effective art-form, but one possessing complete dramatic unity. To contemporary Athenians nothing in these plays was undramatic; nothing was superfluous and nothing missing; the plays were artistic wholes. To recognize the basic unity of Sophocles' plays, one must fully realize the importance of religion in the drama of the time. Tragedy in ancient Greece was a form of religious observance, its subject matter drawn almost exclusively from legend. The controlling power of the gods, and their participation in the affairs of men, are the apparatus on which the dramatic unity depends. It is easy to lose sight of the religious aspect of the plays, for Sophocles, in particular, presents his human story so powerfully that a modern audience might easily see it as the only important aspect of the play. However, a Sophoclean drama is at once the fascinating presentation of a story, and a demonstration of the way in which mortals, with all their strength and greatness, are guided or supported by Olympian will and wisdom. The plays of Sophocles were constructed within theforms peculiar to their day, and should be judged accordingly." - from the dustjacket.

ADAS, Michael. Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, (1979). Pp (6),[vii]-xxvii,(3),3-243,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in Comparative World History series. "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 unacceptablesociocultural systems by extralegal means rather than by constitutional me thods, 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 authorviews these rebellions from the perspectives of both the colonizer incumbe nts and the participants themselves. He analyzes the causes which give riseto these movements of protest gainstst the changes and dislocations engend ered by European conquest and colonization of diverse societies in Africa, Asia, and POceania. 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 wereused to offset European technological superiority. He pays special attenti on 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 theNetnerlands 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)."
