"The First Pagan Historian traces the reception history of a text that is now largely neglected but once occupied a central role in the ancient canon-the De excidio Troiae historia or History of the Destruction of Troy of one Dares Phrygius, who claimed to have been an eyewitness observer of the Trojan War. From late antiquity (when most scholars today now agree that the extant Latin version of the text was written) to the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, this study charts the many surprising twists and turns in the afterlife of an author long considered the first of the pagans to write history. It examines the subversive challenge that Dares posed to other ancient canonical traditions (especially the poetry of Homer and Virgil), and the manner in which Dares' bold rewriting of the Troy story enabled centuries of postclassical readers to forge their own-sometimes radical-visions of the distant past. In doing so The First Pagan Historian moves back and forth between the ancient world itself and various moments in the Middle Ages and the early modern period, using the fortunes of a forged text to interrogate approaches to history, fiction, myth, philology, criticism, authorship and numerous other topics of profound importance to the interplay between antiquity and modernity"--

Most historians rely principally on written sources. Yet there are other traces of the past available to historians: the material things that people have chosen, made, and used. This book examines how material culture can enhance historians' understanding of the past, both worldwide and across time. The successful use of material culture in history depends on treating material things of many kinds not as illustrations, but as primary evidence. Each kind of material thing-and there are many-requires the application of interpretive skills appropriate to it. These skills overlap with those acquired by scholars in disciplines that may abut history but are often relatively unfamiliar to historians, including anthropology, archaeology, and art history. Creative historians can adapt and apply the same skills they honed while studying more traditional text-based documents even as they borrow methods from these fields. They can think through familiar historical problems in new ways. They can also deploy material culture to discover the pasts of constituencies who have left few or no traces in written records. The authors of this volume contribute case studies arranged thematically in six sections that respectively address the relationship of history and material culture to cognition, technology, the symbolic, social distinction, and memory. They range across time and space, from Paleolithic to Punk.

This work presents a new aspect of the emergence of the Eastern Question - the displacement of the Ottoman Empire from Southeastern Europe - seen from the perspective of the small, but strategically important city-state of Dubrovnik, placed precariously between the Habsburg and Turkish empires. Between the Double Eagle and the Crescent offers an excellent example of the ability of small states in the Balkans to engage and use larger empires to preserve their independence and freedom to manoeuvre, which set a precedent for the patron-client relationships between the great powers of Europe and the Balkan states in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The new edition of Civilization Past and Present is a major revision of a classic text (the last edition had Wallbank as the lead author). Civilization Past and Present has a strong European core with excellent global coverage and is well known in the marketplace as a highly readable, accessible survey text.

This edition is available electronically on CD-ROM that includes the entire text, study guide, videos, web links, maps, charts, and photos. Free when bundled, this exciting new multimedia learning tool is easy to navigate and makes reading the textbook fun. Students will love how simple it is to take notes online, search for a topic, create a binder of documents, take practice tests, and watch historical videos.

Greeks and Romans felt that nationality could be identified by dress as well as by language. Examining the ways the women and men of antiquity presented themselves through their dress provides valuable insight into their social institutions; concepts of rank, gender, and status; cultural symbols; role playing; and self-identification. These concerns shape The World of Roman Costume, an extensive investigation of Roman dress, following the pioneering studies of the the 1920s and 1930s by Lillian Wilson. These essays combine the expertise of archaeologists, philologists, anthropologists, and historians. Together they form a transdisciplinary view of the functional and symbolic values of costuming within Roman society and other societies where Roman influence was pervasive. Because habits of dress were determined by, and hence are expressions of, the traditional roles and everyday activities assumed by the Romans, these essays aim to provide a valuable resource for historians of culture, the arts, and religion.
