              The Umayyad World captures the new wave of scholarship on the formative era of Islam and helps shape fresh avenues of inquiry. The volume integrates early Islamic history into wider global history, through the growing recognition that the first century or so of Islam (c. 610-c. 7...50 CE) belongs in many respects to a 'long late antiquity'. With this recognition in mind new approaches to thinking about the nature of the earliest Muslim Empire are explored, often in a comparative world historical perspective, as well as examining the development of the religion of Islam itself.

              The Early Christian World
               

              The Early Christian World (Hardback, 2nd New edition)

              Since its publication in 2000, The Early Christian World has come to be regarded by scholars, students and the general reader as one of the most informative and accessible works in English on the origins, development, character and major figures of early Christianity. In this new... edition, the strengths of the first edition are retained. These include the book's attractive architecture that initially takes a reader through the context and historical development of early Christianity; the essays in critical areas such as community formation, everyday experience, the intellectual and artistic heritage, and external and internal challenges; and the profiles on the most influential early Christian figures. The book also preserves its strong stress on the social reality of early Christianity and continues its distinctive use of hundreds of illustrations and maps to bring that world to life. Yet the years that have passed since the first edition was published have seen great advances made in our understanding of early Christianity in its world. This new edition fully reflects these developments and provides the reader with authoritative, lively and up-to-date access to the early Christian world. A quarter of the text is entirely new and the remaining essays have all been carefully revised and updated by their authors. Some of the new material relates to Christian culture (including book culture, canonical and non-canonical scriptures, saints and hagiography, and translation across cultures). But there are also new essays on: Jewish and Christian interaction in the early centuries; ritual; the New Testament in Roman Britain; Manichaeism; Pachomius the Great and Gregory of Nyssa. This new edition will serve its readers for many years to come.

The volume also looks at the new development of mass media over this period and emerging trends in culture, such as advertising and conumption, film and publishing, as well as the technological and scientific changes that shaped the world at the turn of the nineteenth century, such as the telephone and transport, and eugenics and physics. This title also turns to consider issues such as selfhood in chapters looking at gender, sexuality, adolescence, race and class, and considers the importance of different religions, both old and new, at the turn of the century. Finally the volume examines emerging and important trends in art, music and literature alongside movements such as realism and aesthetisism. Taking a truly global focus, the volume conveys a vivid picture of how politics, religion, popular and artistic culture, social practices and scientific endeavors fited together in an exciting world of change. It will be invaluable reading for all students and scholars of the Fin-de-Siecle period.

              The World of the Indigenous Americas is a comprehensive look at issues that concern indigenous people in North America. Though no single volume can cover every tribe and every issue around this fertile area of inquiry, this book takes on the fields of law, archaeology, literature..., socio-linguistics, geography, sciences, and gender studies, among others, in order to make sense of the Indigenous experience. Covering both Canada's First Nations and the Native American tribes of the United States, and alluding to the work being done in indigenous studies through the rest of the world, the volume reflects the critical mass of scholarship that has developed in Indigenous Studies over the past decade, and highlights the best new work that is emerging in the field. The World of the Indigenous Americas is a book for every scholar in the field to own and refer to often.
