The preface to this work describes how its authors: Cambridge University Press. Cambridge University Press, 2014. 620p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Library Collection - Egyptology. The preface to this work describes how its authors, Charles Irby (1789?1845) and James Mangles (1786?1867), both officers in the Royal Navy, left England in 1816 for a tour of the continent. 'Curiosity at first, and an increasing admiration of antiquities as they advanced, carried them at length through several parts of the Levant.' On their return to England, interest in Egypt being at its height, they were persuaded to compile this book from their letters to friends and family at home, and had it privately printed in 1823. Their account begins in Cairo, whence they made a journey down the Nile, meeting with Giovanni Belzoni at Abu Simbel. They then travelled from Cairo across the desert and along the coast of the Holy Land, reaching Aleppo and exploring Syria. This detailed account of their two-year travels provides much information of continuing interest to archaeologists and historians. (Publisher's information)., Cambridge University Press, The Author., 2009. A very good 240 page coffee-table hardback book. Inscription dated July 2014 by the president of the Famagusta Association of Great Britain, otherwise unmarked , unworn, and could pass for new. Photographs in the category of Close-ups; Village Life; Culture; Religion; At Work; Education; and Modern Cypriots. Doros Partasides was born in Cyprus in 1944 and joined the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation's film unit as a cameraman in 1966. His work was soon acknowledged to be outstanding and imaginative and he gained a scholarship for a post-graduate diploma in Film and Television at the Royal College of Art in London in 1971. He went on to produce some of Cyprus's most memorable documentaries. During the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus Doros was on the front lines filming and photographing the trauma of his country. Soon after Doros produced his first photographic book. Cyprus 1974: Days of Disaster, which also exhibited at The Photographer's Gallery, in London. The outstanding body of work has become one of the most important documents on the tragedy of the island. In the months after the invasion Doros moved with his family to Britain and settled in London where he continued to work as a London correspondent and cameraman for CyBC. Today he covers the major news and cultural events of the Cypriot diaspora in Britain and Europe. And his photographs appear regularly in the British and European press, including the Observer, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Both Doros's film work and photography has continued to attract acclaim in Britain and Cyprus and he worked on several critical documentaries for Channel 4, most notably. The Green Line, and Unemployment by the Unemployed, and Between Two Cultures. Also Crossing the Line, Cyprus, the Holy Island. Cypriot Diaspora, and Theogonies. Doros has also produced for several photographic books, including Rebecca is a Cypriot, The Portraits of Makarias and The Green Line —The Division of Cyprus. For Doros, living away from Cyprus has made his bond to the country stronger and it has become central to the work he has produced. Portrait photography soon became his specialism as he enjoyed the candid emotions he could draw from his subjects. The pictures in Faces of Cyprus are the results of a lifetime's work. Doros lives in London with his wife and family. . First Edition.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine., The Author., 2009, Cambridge University Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 260 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.The island of Cyprus was conquered from its Byzantine ruler by Richard I of England in 1191 during the Third Crusade, and remained under western rule until the Ottoman conquest of 1570-1. From the 1190s until the 1470s the island was a kingdom governed by the members of the Lusignan family. The Lusignans, who hailed from Poitou in western France, imposed a new European landowning class and a Catholic ecclesiastical hierarchy upon the indigenous Greek population. Nevertheless, their regime provided long periods of political stability and, until the late fourteenth century, a considerable period of prosperity. In the thirteenth century the island was closely linked to the Latin states in Syria and the Holy Land by political, social and economic ties and, with the fall of the last Christian strongholds to the Muslims in 1291, it became the most easterly outpost of Latin Christendom in the Mediterranean. This new study, which is based on original research, traces the fortunes of Cyprus under its royal dynasty and its role in the Crusades and in the confrontation of Christian and Muslim in the Near East until the 1370s. It is both a major contribution to the history of the Crusades in the Levant and the only scholarly study of medieval Cyprus currently available. This item ships from multiple locations.

She demonstrates how rivalries among the royal families and the disintegration of indigenous institutions contributed to the development of nationalism. The author also shows how religious symbols and practices going back to the seventeenth century were reformulated and acquired a new significance in the colonial context.

She demonstrates how rivalries among the royal families and major zamindari temples, and the disintegration of indigenous institutions of rule, contributed to the development of nationalism and identity amongst the people of southern Tamil country. The author also shows how religious symbols and practices going back to the seventeenth century were reformulated and acquired a new significance in the colonial context. Arguing for a reappraisal of the relationship of Hinduism to politics, Price finds that these symbols and practices continue to inform popular expectation of political leadership today.List of illustrations, Acknowledgements, Glossary, Introduction, 1. Honour, status and state formation in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Maravar country, 2. Cosmological fragmentation in the public sphere, 3. Domain formation in mid-nineteenth-century Ramnad, 4. Human and divine palaces in the fragmentation of monarchical cosmology, 5. Ritual performances, the ruling person and the public, 6. Raja Baskara Setupati and the emergence of a new political style, Conclusion, Bibliography, Index.'Kingship and Political Practice in Colonial India is a solid piece of scholarship. Professor Price is at her best when she treats the litigation of the nineteenth century and its effects on the kingdoms of Ramnad and Sivagangai . a useful reminder that present day politics in India (or for that matter much of the rest of the world) have deep roots that go directly back to precolonial times.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society'Overall, her book is compelling and original, and will force scholars to examine afresh the nature of south Indian kingship as it is transformed under British colonial rule.' The Journal of Asian Studies'The strength of Price's book is to consider honour and ritual not as means to a political end, but as independent ends in themselves . the text is the product of careful research . Using methodological insights from Weberian sociology and steeped in the anthropology of South Asia, Price has produced a cultural history which argues, contra Dirks, for the continuity and evolution of royal symbols and values under colonial rule and in contemporary south India.'
