  • Remembering Violenceby Nicolas Argenti; Katharina Schramm

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    Psychologists have done a great deal of research on the effects of trauma on the individual, revealing the paradox that violent experiences are often secreted away beyond easy accessibility, becoming impossible to verbalize explicitly. However, comparatively little research has been done on the transgenerational effects of trauma and the means by... more...

    BRILL 2008; US$ 159.00

    Referring, by way of example, to the chronicler's story about a dynastic conflict in medieval Poland, this book offers an insight into the modes of using ritual as an effective tool of political action in the Middle Ages-both in the practice of political entreprising, and on the level of narrative information about that practice-and then reflects... more...

  • Anthropology of Violence and Conflictby Bettina Schmidt; Ingo Schroeder

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 49.95

    Anthropology of Violence has only recently developed into a field of research in its own right and as such it is still fairly fragmented.

The study of important conflicts, such as wars in Sarajevo, Albania and Sri Lanka as well... more...

  • Concubines and Powerby Heidi J. Nast; Hausatu Abba Ado Bayero

    University of Minnesota Press 2004; US$ 70.50

    The palace of Kano, Nigeria historically housed hundreds of concubines whose influence has been largely overlooked. In Concubines and Power, Heidi J.

Social forces undoubtedly shaped concubinage, but Nast shows how the women?s... more...
