There is a purging of sorrow in the very pageantry of funerals. Carelessness about death might reflect a carelessness about life.

57227 VAN DOMMELEN, Peter, and A. Bernard KNAPP, eds. Material Connections in the Ancient Mediterranean : Mobility, Materiality and Identity. First Edition, hardcover.
Routledge, London and New York, 2010, ISBN:9780415586689 
VAN DOMMELEN, Peter, and A. Bernard KNAPP, eds. Material Connections in theAncient Mediterranean : Mobility, Materiality and Identity. Edited by Pete r van Dommelen and A. Bernard Knapp. London and New York : Routledge, (2010). First Printing. Pp. (4),[v]-xvi,[1]-256. 8vo, blue glossy paper covered boards with white lettering to front board and spine. "'Material Connections in the Ancient Mediterranean' explores the social identity of prehistoricMediterranean peoples through the combined lenses of materiality, migratio n, colonial encoutners, hybridisation and connectivity or insularity. Whereas Mediterranean archaeology has traditionally focused on excavating major sites, isolating cultural 'firsts' and describing fine artworks, the main resource of this collection is the material culture of everyday life: this allows the authors to look well beyond the rather narrow lens of archival, epigraphic and literary written evidence. The volume moves beyond established approaches and engages activtely with the interrelated issues of colonialism, material culture and identity on a comparative basis. The authors explore in particular how 'things' mediate the experience of ancient Mediterranean peoples, and how these relations are shaped and informed by long-term collective memories of movement, colonisation or localisation. By analysing concepts like migration, materiality, identity and connectivity, the authors breathe new life into theoretical and methodological approaches, and foster new dialogues and understandings of trans-regional and trans-cultural practices." - from the introductory preamble.

57234 Van ESBECK, Edmund One Hundred Years of Irish Rugby : The Official History of the Irish Rugby Football Union. First Edition in dustjacket.

Van ESBECK, Edmund. One Hundred Years of Irish Rugby : The Official Historyof the Irish Rugby Football Union. (Dublin) : Gill & Macmillan, (1974). Fi rst Printing.. Pp (10),[1]-246 + 24 pages of photos. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Rugby football has long been popular in Ireland. Within a few years of its 'invention' at Rugby School in 1823 the game spreadto Ireland, and in 1874 the Irish Rugby Football Union was founded, enabli ng Irish teams to contest international matches. But the real roots of rugby may lie much deeper - in a primitive form of football played for centuries in the Irish countryside. In this official history, published to mark thecentenary of the IRFU, the evidence for both theories of origin is careful ly investigated and an unexpected link between them is brought to light . The establishment of the game on an organised basis in the mid-nineteenth century is then examined and Ireland's dramatic entry on the international rugby scene described. Basing his carefully researched narrative on all the available source material, the author traces the progress of Irish rugby through times of uncertainty and failure to eventual triumph and glory. The players themselves are the heroes of the book. Famous personalities of past and present are vividly depicted; their performance in Ireland's greatest games is assessed and the contribution of each in developing particular skills and techniques is analysed. The text is supported by extensive appendicescontaining a complete statistical record of Irish rugby and by a superb co llection of historic photographs. Tradition and change are the keynotes of Irish rugby. The fast-moving expertise demonstrated by present-day players is far removed from those early, more informal days when one player might take the field wearing white kid gloves and khaki putteees while another would carefully remove his monocle before making a tackle. But the standard ofsportsmanship has remained consistently high, the spirit of fraternity is as strong as ever, and the game continues to flourish under an all-Ireland constitution. This dual strain is the heritage not only of those who now wear the green jersey but also of their supporters who pack the stands at Lansdowne Road. All such enthusiasts will find in this book an enthralling account of a century of Irish rugby. " - from dj flaps. Contents: Foreword by Mr H.R. McKibbin; 1.

"In a major departure from the usual approaches to pre-Conquest Aztec culture, Rudolph van Zantwijk offers here a new interpretation of the origins and development of Aztec society. The Aztecs are usually viewed as a rigidly stratified society of royalty, nobility, priestly elite, and commoner, derived from a single group, the Toltecs, and originating in the legendary 'Tula'. The author, on the contrary, maintains that the 'Aztecs' were peoples of multiethnic, heterogeneous origins who came together in the Valley of Mexico. To build a stable, unified society in harmony with their cosmos and create an empire, they 'rewrote' their history, bringing all these diverse peoples under the 'umbrella' of the Toltecs. To legitimize that origin, their ancestors became the people of Tula, 'the Place Where Authority Originated'." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. The Historical Sources as Starting Points; 2. "From the Mists, from the Clouds, from the Seven Caves":History or Myth?; 3. The Social History of Mexitin; 4. Aztec Social Organi zation at the Founding of Mexico-Tenochtitlan; 5.

VANAUKEN, Sheldon. The Glittering Illusion : English Sympathy for the Southern Confederacy. With a Foreword by Lord Beloff. (Worthing, Sussex) : Churchman Publishing, 1993 First Edition. Pp (8),[1]-182,(2). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spne. "In The Glittering Illusion bestselling autobiographpher Sheldon Vanauken reveals that he is also an historian of skill and creative insight. His thesis in this volume is both original and controversial- that the overwhelming inclination of the English during the Great Confli ct between North and South was to enter the War on the side of the Confederacy. Indeed, he demonstrates w ith convincing evidence the dominance of such a sentiment, despite some contrary activity on the part of anti-slavery forces. Why, then, didn't England make such a fateful commitment and ensure the victory of the Southern forces? Vanauken argues that the answer to thatquestion lies in a single "glittering illusion" that hypnotized those that might otherwise have acted — the idea that Robert E. Lee, the enormously s uccessful commander of the Southern forces was all but invincible, that with so brilliant a strategist in the field there was no need for England to commit its own considerable resources. A must for all who are interested in American or English history, The Glittering Illusion is that contemporary rarity, a scholarly book that reads with the same grace and excitement as a popular novel; for Vanauken is both a meticulous documentor of facts and a consummate prose stylist.
