Getting To The Heart Of The Matter: Collected Letters And Papers, Robert K. Thomas Jan 1990

Getting To The Heart Of The Matter: Collected Letters And Papers, Robert K. Thomas

Robert K. Thomas

This collection of some of the writings of Robert (Bob) Thomas, Cherokee elder, practitioner of the Cherokee traditional religion, mentor to a wide variety of younger Indian leaders, and anthropologist at the University of Arizona, were written over the last twenty-five years. They were written for different groups of people - some for Indians and others directed more to non-Indians, some for academics and others for a general audience. They cover a wide range of subjects and use a variety of writing styles. But all display Bob's great concern and passion, that which drives him - the survival of Indians as ...

Beadmaking In Islam: The African Trade And The Rise Of Hebron, Peter Francis Jr. Jan 1990

Beadmaking In Islam: The African Trade And The Rise Of Hebron, Peter Francis Jr.

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

This paper complements one which appeared in volume 1 of this journal, as it also deals with beads in the Islamic world. However, the present work takes a somewhat different approach, being based primarily on historical sources. It also has a different geographical orientation, dealing with commerce between the Islamic world and the northern portion of Africa. Concentrating mostly on the period from the 12th to the 20th century, it documents the rise of a new beadmaking center at Hebron, in the West Bank. The name "Kano beads" has recently been assigned to one class of Hebron beads, and their ...


Science: The End Of The Frontier, Leon M. Lederman Jan 1990

Science: The End Of The Frontier, Leon M. Lederman

University of Wyoming National Park Service Research Center Annual Report

Once upon a time American science sheltered an Einstein, went to the moon, and gave to the world the laser, the electronic computer, nylon, television, the cure for polio, and observations of our planet's location in an expanding universe. Today we are in the process, albeit unwittingly, of abandoning this leadership role. It is up to the President, the Congress, and the American people to decide whether this is really the road we want this country to travel.

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner Jan 1990

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner

Department of Anthropology Papers

First published in 1969, Simin Daneshvar's Savushun has gone through sixteen printings and sold half a million copies -- a record for a work of literature in modern Iran. The reason is not obscure. Daneshvar's style is sensitive and imaginative. Her story follows basic cultural themes and metaphors. It goes straight to the hearts of a generation of Iranian readers, striking special chords of emotion and memory of the recent past. Savushun enriches a generation's understanding of itself. It encap­sulates the experience of Iranians who have lived through the midcen­tury decades which led up to the ...

Observations And Problems In Researching The Contemporary Glass-Bead Industry Of Northern China, Roderick Sprague, An Jiayao Jan 1990

Observations And Problems In Researching The Contemporary Glass-Bead Industry Of Northern China, Roderick Sprague, An Jiayao

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

The status of glass-bead manufacturing in northern China is undergoing rapid change due to the development of the plastic-bead industry. Several manufacturing plants, including the large Beijing Glass Ware Factory, are no longer making beads and several other plants are contemplating changes. The variety of domestic glass beads available for purchase today would indicate a greater number of manufacturing sites than are mentioned in the popular literature.

Review Of Robert Ackerman, J.G. Frazer: His Life And Work, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1990

Review Of Robert Ackerman, J.G. Frazer: His Life And Work, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

"Darwin, Marx, Frazer and Freud are among the most important thinkers of the past century, and are significant shapers of the modern mind and of the present century" (Stanly Edgar Hyman, The Tangled Bank: Darwin, Marx, Frazer and Freud and Imaginative Writers [1966], p. x). Of these four, Frazer is probably the only one who has written more books than has books written about him. Surely, references and allusions to his works abound. In 1922 T.S. Eliot cited in his "Notes on 'The Waste Land' " Frazer's The Golden Bough as a work "which has influenced our generation profoundly ...

It was determined that the planned construction would have no impact on archaeological resources. However, if further alterations to the park are planned, monitoring should be considered.
