Spivak, Gayatri Chakravorty
In this book, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak - teacher, feminist, cultural critic, literary theorist - addresses the crisis of multiculturalism. How are debates over the canon, ethnicity, Third World feminism, and the new cultural studies shaping our understanding of "culture"? One of the most influential scholars in critical theory today, Spivak's writing and lectures have become crucial to the understanding of both feminism and cultural studies. In this new volume, she addresses a wide range of issues affecting multicultural thinking in the university, such as ideas of post-coloniality and international feminism. 335pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Fading and crease to spine. Annotation to page 55.

Howells, William
Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution. 266pp.

Edited By Ostrem, Eyolf Etc.
The concepts of genre and ritual are central for the overall occupation with the relationship between the History of the Arts and the History of Christianity in Western Culture. In particular, these two concepts have important bearings for the research carried out at the Centre for the Study of the Cultural Heritage of Medieval Rituals which has been established at the Faculty of Theology at the University of Copenhagen through funding from the Danish National Research Foundation. The first of the annual conferences of the Centre was dedicated to the question of ritual and genre. The present volume was planned on the basis of this conference: a collection of 15 essays with a wide range of topics both in terms of chronology and subject matter. The individual essays have been written partly by scholars at the Centre, partly by colleagues from universities in Denmark, Norway , Sweden, Germany and the USA with which the Centre collaborates. The aims has been to publish a volume which in a facetted way sheds light on the complex relationship between the two broad and difficult terms, genre and ritual, within the cultural history of Europe.336pp.

Minear, Tish and Limon, Janet
The Ancient Pueblo people, also known mistakenly as the Anasazi, were a prehistoric Native American culture located around the present day 'Four Corners' areas of the Southwest United States. This area encompasses the Colorado Plateau, and extends from central New Mexico to southern Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The topography of this panoramic region varies greatly, including high plateaus, vast horizontal mesas, sleep walled canyons, and sandstone windows and bridges sculpted by water erosion. In cliff areas with harder stone, rock overhangs formed and served as building sites for adobe dwellings often accessible only by rope or rock climbing. Numerous national parks and monuments such as Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, Sunset Crater and Chaco Canyon provide stunning scenery and a well-preserved window into the area's fascinating prehistoric past.Divided geographically, this expanded edition includes tips on visiting reservations, attending ceremonies, buying arts and crafts, and adjusting to 'Indian time'. The revised format provides easy reader access to a wealth of information, and includes dozens of new sites, selected places to stay, eat and shop, a calendar of various powwows and other tribal ceremonies, a section on language, points of interest, maps, and 16 pages of full colour photographs. This book also examines locations such as the Gila Cliff Dwellings Monument, the Taos Pueblo, and The Denver Art Museum, which houses an extensive collection of North American native art. 481pp.
