Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Epitome of Military Science

Author: Flavius Vegetius Renatus

Publisher: Liverpool University Press

"The only Latin art of war to survive, Vegetius' Epitome was for long an essential part of the medieval prince's military education. The core of his proposals, the maintenance of a highly-trained professional standing army and navy, was revolutionary for medieval Europe, while his theory of deterrence through strength remains the foundation of modern Western defence policy. This annotated translation highlights the significance for his own age of Vegetius' advice, written just before the fall of the Roman Empire in the West, at a time when economic weakness and political disintegration threatened to undermine the strategic defensive structure that had underpinned the Roman State for so long." "The main thrust of his reforms is to confront the problems of the fragmentation of the army, the barbarization of its personnel, the loss of professional skills, and the substitution of mercenaries for standing forces. The accent of the work is on the practicalities of recruiting and training new model armies (and navies) starting from scratch, and on the strategies appropriate to their use against the barbarian invaders of the period."--BOOK JACKET.

An invaluable collection of images, descriptions and bibliography of each of the 288 artifacts of the exhibition, covering a wide range of historical, archaeological, cultural and artistic aspects of the two city-states of Athens and Sparta from the Archaic to the Classical periods, when both were the protagonists of affairs in the ancient Greek world. Athens-Sparta explores the cultural development of the two most important city-states in ancient Greece, along with the two cities' formations. Artistic, social, and cultural developments from the Late Geometric period through the Archaic period (8th to the 5th centuries B.C.) are scrutinized as well as the continuously changing dynamic between the two cities during the Persian Wars (500 B.C. to 449 B.C.) and the Peloponnesian War (431 B.C. to 404 B.C.). This fully illustrated volume not only focuses on the objects, such as the metal work and pottery that were included in the exhibition, but through a series of extensive essays examines the broader context of the artistic developments of the time. Contributors to the exhibition catalogue include, in addition to the editor, Dr. Donald Kagan, Sterling Professor of History and Classics at Yale University; Dr. Paul Cartledge, Professor of Greek History, Chairman of the Faculty of Classics, and a Fellow of Clare College, at the University of Cambridge, as well as eminent Greek historians and archaeologists like Georgia Kokkorou Alevras, Professor of Classical Archaeology at University of Athens; Dr. Yanis Pikoulas, Professor at University of Thessaly (IAKA), Editor of Horos; Dr. Yannis Touratsoglou, Emeritus Director of the Numismatic Museum and of the National Archaeological Museum; and Ismini Trianti, Professor of Classical Archaeology at University of Ioannina.
