As research continues on the earliest migration of modern humans into North and South America, the current state of knowledge about these first Americans is continually evolving. Especially with recent advances in human genomic studies, both of living populations and ancient skeletal remains, new light is being shed in the ongoing quest toward understanding the full complexity and timing of prehistoric migration patterns. Paleoamerican Odyssey collects thirty-one studies presented at the 2013 conference by the same name, hosted in Santa Fe, New Mexico, by the Center for the Study of the First Americans at Texas A&M University. Providing an up-to-date view of the current state of knowledge in paleoamerican studies, the research gathered in this volume, presented by leaders in the field, focuses especially on late Pleistocene Northeast Asia, Beringia, and North and South America, as well as dispersal routes, molecular genetics, and Clovis and pre-Clovis archaeology.

Juxtaposition of the Septuagint Translation with the Hebrew Text

This book is essentially a very exacting comparison between the Septuaginta translation of the Esther Scroll and its Hebrew text. Each and every verse in the Scroll is graphically presented in a four columned table in which we inserted the Hebrew text, broken up into syntactically coherent short phrases, its Greek counterpart and the English translations of the Hebrew and Greek phrases respectively. In the running commentary we discuss the additions and the omissions, examine how the Translator succeeded in rendering especially difficult and complicated Hebrew verses, and try to throw light on his language, his methods and his translational idiosyncrasies. We also quote the Vulgate, the Aramaic Targumim and the Greek A Text and, in most cases translate them too in English. The added value of this book is the synoptic graphic presentation of each verse which enables one to get an immediate impression of the two texts and their juxtaposition.

This highly detailed study examines both Greek tragedy and comedy and argues that all genres of Greek drama were aware of their own theatricality and developed sophisticated devices to hide their reflexivity and artifice. Dobrov suggests that this is particularly apparent in the characterisation of tragic and comic stage figures. Sophocles' Aias and Tereus , Euripides' Bakkhai , Peirithous and Bellerophontes as well as Aristophanes' Peace , Birds and Frogs are discussed and compared in detail.

This book sheds light on the interpenetration process between practice and theory of "Japanese management accounting" by using historical methods. Japanese management accounting can be characterized by the fact that it not only emphasizes the management of entities, such as JIT, and kaizen activities both in the company but also suppliers.

»Was ich gesucht, habe ich gefunden, / Was ich fand, das fand auch mich. « Friedrich von Hardenberg, besser bekannt als Novalis, ist 22, als er Sophie von Kühn erstmals trifft – eine Viertelstunde, die über sein Leben entschieden hat, wie er später seinem Bruder gestehen wird. Hals über Kopf hat er sich verliebt und verlobt sich schon bald mit »Söphgen«. Für den romantischen Dichter ist die viel Jüngere seine blaue Blume, die Verkörperung seiner Poesie und all seiner Sehnsucht. Doch das Glück steht unter keinem guten Stern: Sophie erkrankt an Tuberkulose ... Penelope Fitzgerald erzählt die dramatische Liebesgeschichte des Paares, dessen Schicksal bis heute berührt, und sie zeigt Novalis in einem neuen Licht.
