Indiana University Press, Bloomington, 1985, ISBN:025333960x 
BUSHNELL, John. Mutiny amid Repression : Russian Soldiers in the Revolutionof 1905-1906. Bloomington : Indiana University Press, (1985). First Printi ng. Pp (6),v-ix,(3),1-334,(4). 8vo, maroon cloth, gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Indiana-Michigan Series in Russian and East European Studies. "Deeply religious, steadfast in battle, instinctively deferential to hisofficers - this was the established image of the Russian soldier at the ti me of the revolution of 1905. The Russian army’s principal role in that upheaval, it is generally believed, was the suppression of civil disorder. Challenging this conventional wisdom, John Bushnell’s startling study shows that the army itself was in a state of rebellion. The author presents detailed evidence that at least 400 mutinies occurred between October 1905 and July 1906, involving one-third of the infantry units with which the regime presumably put down revolution. Periods of rebellion and repression followed in rapid succession, as soldiers alternately pressed their own revolutionarydemands and dutifully crushed civilian upheaval. What explains this parado xical behavior, and why did the Tsarist regime ultimately prevail? Bushnellpoints to the psychology of Russia’s peasant soldiers, who mutinied when t he regime wavered and quickly knuckled under when they believed the authorities had the upper hand. Workers, revolutionaries, peasants, and soldiers, each with their own agenda of grievances, failed to make effective common cause against the Tsarist regime." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Officers andmen in the Russian army. 2. Enemies domestic: Russia moves toward revoluti on. 3. Failing to contain revolution: January-October 1905. 4. Revolution in the army. 5. December 1905: mutineers save the regime. 6. Preparations for the second round. 7. "Theses words pleased us very much": soldiers and politics. 8. July 1906: the revolution that might have been. Conclusion: Russian society viewed through Russian mutiny. Appendix I. Mutinies in 1905. Appendix II. Mutinies in 1906. Very good in dustjacket (short tear). 50.00

6 EGENTER, Nold. Architectural Anthropology : Semantic and Symbolic Architecture : Am architectural-ethnographic survey into hundred villages of central Japan. First Printing
Structura Mundi, Lausanne, 1994, ISBN:3905451026 
EGENTER, Nold. Architectural Anthropology : Semantic and Symbolic Architecture : Am architectural-ethnographic survey into hundred villages of centralJapan. (Lausanne) : Structura Mundi, (1994). Pp [1]-250,(2). Illustrated. Maps. Triple Column. Oblong 8vo, illustrated red card covers, French flaps."Egenter's investigation is based on fieldwork which he did from 1972 to 1 976, concentrating on temporary cultic structures and festivals in the region of Omihachiman near Lake Biwa and including about one hundred surrounding villages. He considers this naturally bounded area to have preserved an "isolated sphere" in terms of cultural history and thus to have preserved very ancient practices side by side with the imposition of more modern ones. One of Egenter's main theses is that these temporary structures, when studied objectively in terms of their material and techniques of construction, will yield important information about the original layers of Japanese culture and religion. By systematically identifying the original elements - on the grounds of material and technique - a kind of cultural history can be reconstructed in which many of the ideas about gods and cults of fertility can be seen as later accretions. For, Egenter holds, the cults associated with regional or national gods and festivals represent layers of Shinto which have been attached to the autochthonic tradition because of social or political developments. For this reason, he deals with the cultic structures andaccompanying rituals not as integrated wholes but as agglomerates or accum ulations of different layers of development. In unraveling these layers of accumulation and reaching the ealiest autochothonic layer, Egenter lays down an important methodological presupposition: the most ancient circumstances are better preserved in the material tradition (Sachtradition) than the ideal tradition, although of course both are transmitted together. That is, the actual materials, technique of construction, and cultic behavior represent a material tradition which tend, at least in an isolated sphere, to be passed on relatively unchanged from the most ancient times." (Theodore M. Ludwig, quoted on the flaps). Light spotting to bottom edge, else very good.60.00

LEVIN, Michael D. (ed.). Ethnicity and Aboriginality : Case Studies in Ethnonationalism. Toronto / Bufffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (1993). Pp (6),[viii]-xiii,(3),[3]-179,(7). 8vo, yellow and green card covers, lettered in maroon and green. "Ethnonationalism is a phenomenon of great importance in many parts of the world today. In this collection of papers, nine distinguished anthropologists focus on Canadian and international casestudies to show how ethnonational claims of cultural groups have been expr essed and developed in specific historical and political situations, from observations of Quebec to the former Soviet Union, through problems of the Australian aborigines, Malay identity, the Avaglogoli in Western Kenya, and ethnic cultures in Nigeria, the essays reflect the complexity of the claimsand aspirations of different groups. Some deal with intractable demand for sovereignty, others with solutions that attempt to achieve a level of auto nomy and recognition short of sovereignty. The intellectual history of the right of self-determination is little more than 200 years old. It is only since that time that the ideal of popular sovereignty by any group that views itself as a people became an accepted view. These writers have used a paper by Walker Connor, ‘The Politics of Ethnonationalism’ as a foil against which to develop their own theses. Connor argues that claims to self-determination based on ethnic identity present problems to all but a few states, and since these claims are unlikely to be satisfied, ethnonationalism is disruptive of political order. The papers in this volume do not accept his negative conclusions, although they share a sense of secession and division are less worthy outcomes than pluralist structures. Nevertheless, in Valery Tishkov’s discussion of the former Soviet Union, secession appears to be theonly solution. Since ethnonationalism will continue to be a political issu e for some time, these papers form a significant base for future political debate." (Abstract). Contents : Introduction (by Michael D.
