Auxiliary Verb Constructions in Altai-Sayan Turkic is a comprehensive survey of the rich system of auxiliary verbs found in the Altai-Sayan Turkic languages spoken in south central Siberia. This includes a discussion of the range of patterns of inflection in the auxiliary verb constructions, the development of various verbal affixes that were originally auxiliary verbs, and the wide array of functions that auxiliary verb constructions have in this group of languages. These latter include the usual tense, mood, and aspect categories that are commonly associated with auxiliary verbs across the languages of the world. In addition, auxiliary verb constructions have several less typical functions in the Altai-Sayan Turkic languages. These include both unusual modal or aspectual categories like unexpected action or 'pretend to' forms and categories relating to so-called verbal 'orientation' or 'direction' and 'version'. In the former instance, the forms mark motion toward or away from the subject, topic, or discourse locus, while the latter formations indicate whether a subject or a nonsubject is the participant primarily affected by the action of the verb.

China's re-engagement with global capitalism has enabled and made possible new forms of politics. In northwestern China's mountainous Altai region, problems of poverty, or income disparity when Altai is compared with other regions, as well as problems of grassland degradation and desertification, are said to be related to the cultural practices of the region's minority nationality and nomadic pastoral Kazakh residents. These cultural practices---said to be traditional forms of land tenure, management, and other use practices associated with transhumant pastoral production---are referred to as primitive and backwards, and thus, residents are said to lack the scientific knowledge and technical expertise that sustainable development---whether framed in terms of increasing incomes or conserving grassland resources---in the region requires.

The book you are about to read presents the outlandish theory that all human civilizations and languages began once at a single point on earth and a specific point in time. It is a rereading of history up to the modern day that witnesses the spread of culture from this single point and how it changed and whom it touched and how. It posits the notion that the original, or primordial, knowledge of human beings was something pure and useful but over time has been distorted into something that is too often wicked and harmful. From simple beginnings when humans lived as part of nature, knowledge was a necessary means of understanding nature, and in the authors view, knowledge has become an end in itself, pursued for its own sake and in disregard of the real difficulties humanity now faces.

When a fire rips through the Venetian Arsenal in 1569, the enigmatic Emanuele De Zante, spy-catcher and secret agent, is betrayed by his lover, imprisoned, and accused of treason. Given the chance to escape, he embarks on a trans-European odyssey that will test his loyalty and force him to question even his own identity. Through a series of deadly political games leading all the way to the Sultan’s palace in Constantinople, De Zante and his companions spiral headfirst toward a conflict in which the great empires of the Republic of Venice and the Ottomans threaten the very foundations of civilization.
