A Comparative Approach to Imperial Culture and Representation in Eurasian History

ISBN: 1139560956

The claim by certain rulers to universal empire has a long history stretching as far back as the Assyrian and Achaemenid Empires. This book traces its various manifestations in classical antiquity, the Islamic world, Asia and Central America as well as considering seventeenth- and eighteenth-century European discussions of international order. As such it is an exercise in comparative world history combining a multiplicity of approaches, from ancient history, to literary and philosophical studies, to the history of art and international relations and historical sociology. The notion of universal, imperial rule is presented as an elusive and much coveted prize among monarchs in history, around which developed forms of kingship and political culture. Different facets of the phenomenon are explored under three, broadly conceived, headings: symbolism, ceremony and diplomatic relations; universal or cosmopolitan literary high-cultures; and, finally, the inclination to present universal imperial rule as an expression of cosmic order.

The Welsh princes were one of the most important ruling elites in medieval western Europe. This volume examines their behaviour, influence and power in a period when the Welsh were struggling to maintain their independence and identity in the face of Anglo-Norman settlement. From the mid-eleventh century to the end of the thirteenth, Wales was profoundly transformed by conquest and foreign 'colonial' settlement. Massive changes took place in the political, economic, social and religious spheres and Welsh culture was significantly affected. Roger Turvey looks at this transformation, its impact on the Welsh princes and the part they themselves played in it. Turvey's survey of the various aspects of princely life, power and influence draws out the human qualities of these flesh and blood characters, and is written very much with the general reader in mind.

Approaches to Inuit Literature

In an age where southern power-holders look north and see only vacant polar landscapes, isolated communities, and exploitable resources, it is important to note that the Inuit homeland encompasses extensive philosophical, political, and literary traditions. Stories in a New Skin is a seminal text that explores these Arctic literary traditions and, in the process, reveals a pathway into Inuit literary criticism. Author Keavy Martin considers writing, storytelling, and performance from a range of genres and historical periods – the classic stories and songs of Inuit oral traditions, life writing, oral histories, and contemporary fiction, poetry and film – and discusses the ways in which these texts constitute an autonomous literary tradition. She draws attention to the interconnection between language, form and context and illustrates the capacity of Inuit writers, singers and storytellers to instruct diverse audiences in the appreciation of Inuit texts. Although Eurowestern academic contexts and literary terminology are a relatively foreign presence in Inuit territory, Martin builds on the inherent adaptability and resilience of Inuit genres in order to foster greater southern awareness of a tradition whose audience has remained primarily northern.

Unlike much of the instant analysis that appeared at the time of the Iranian revolution, Iran: From Religious Dispute to Revolution is based upon extensive fieldwork carried out in Iran. Michael M. J. Fischer draws upon his rich experience with the mullahs and their students in the holy city of Qum, composing a picture of Iranian society from the inside—the lives of ordinary people, the way that each class interprets Islam, and the role of religion and religious education in the culture. Fischer’s book, with its new introduction updating arguments for the post-Revolutionary period, brings a dynamic view of a society undergoing metamorphosis, which remains fundamental to understanding Iranian society in the early twenty-first century.

In this revealing study, the intriguing story behind the accusation and conviction of Sir John Perrot of Carew, Pembrokeshire for treason is related together with the first fully edited transcript of his trial to appear in print since 1816. It is a compelling story with a rich cast of dubious characters and a splendid plot involving espionage, counterfeiting, double-dealing, lies and betrayal, together with the added spice of combative courtroom drama. This absorbing study will reveal how, and why, Perrot was framed for a crime he did not commit. But who was Sir John Perrot? He was a man of remarkable personality - 'a tempestuous and choleric character of Shakespearian proportions' - whose varied career touched on sixteenth-century society at many points. He attended the courts of three Tudor monarchs, served in the armies of two and was handsomely rewarded for his royal service by the last and perhaps greatest of them, Elizabeth I. He was appointed the First Lord President of Munster and was later made Lord Deputy of Ireland. His successful Irish service earned for him a seat on Elizabeth's Privy Council and thus a place among the Elizabethan elite. A powerful and forthright figure, Perrot was loathed by his adversaries but admired by friends and allies. However, his sometimes reckless behaviour, blunt manner and plain-speaking often left both friends and family exasperated. His greatest failing was in giving vent to his anger and frustration by publicly criticizing the queen whose inconsistent policy decisions and lack of support for him in Ireland, often left him in a rage. These publicly uttered indiscretions would later come back to haunt him. For these reasons alone, the activities of Perrot's public and private life deserve comprehensive study.
