  • Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan

    Karton Kapak
    An urgent, on-the-ground report from Pakistan-from the best-selling author of Descent Into Chaos and Taliban Ahmed Rashid, one of the world's leading experts on the social and political situations in Pakistan and Afghanistan, offers a highly anticipated update on the possibilities-and hazards-facing the United States after the death of Osama bin Laden and as Operation Enduring Freedom winds down. With the characteristic professionalism that has made him the pre-eminent independent journalist in Pakistan for three decades, Rashid asks the important questions and delivers informed insights about the future of U.S. relations with the troubled region. His most urgent book to date, Pakistan on the Brink is the third volume in a comprehensive series that is a call to action to our nation's leaders and an exposition of this conflict's impact on the security of the world.

  • Dictionary of the Ancient Near East

    Dictionary of the Ancient Near East

    Karton Kapak
    Selected by Choice magazine in 2000 as an Outstanding Academic Book The earliest farms, cities, governments, legal codes, and alphabets developed in the ancient Near East. Four major religions—Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam—began in the region. Ideas, inventions, and institutions spread to all parts of the globe from the urban centers of the ancient Egyptians, Syrians, Hittites, Assyrians, Babylonians, and other peoples of the biblical world. For good reason is the ancient Near East known as the cradle of civilization. The only single-volume dictionary to embrace the whole of the ancient Near East, this major reference work covers Anatolia, Mesopotamia, the Levant, and the Arabian peninsula from the earliest times, through the Old Testament period, until the fall of Babylon to the Persians in 539 B.C. From "Achaemenids" to "Ziwiye," "administration" to "ziggurat," in 500 concise, cross-referenced, and comprehensively indexed entries, the Dictionary of the Ancient Near East describes and explains the major ideas, institutions, places, peoples, and personalities that shaped the earliest development of Western civilization. Architecture, literature, economics, labor, religion, and society are all extensively treated, as are such subjects as crime, dreams, drunkenness, shipwrecks, and sexual behavior (and misbehavior). Each entry, written by a scholar of international standing, includes up-to-date bibliographic references. The book is richly illustrated with photographs, maps, and plans of major sites.

Collins (freelance lecturer in the Ancient Near East, London), Stephanie Dalley (Shillito Fellow in Assyriology, Oriental Institute, Oxford University), Anthony Green (Lecturer in Near Eastern Archaeology, Free University of Berlin), Gwendolyn Leick (Lecturer in Anthropology, the American International University, London), Michael Macdonald (Research Fellow, Oriental Institute, Oxford University), Roger Matthews (Director, British Institute for Archaeology, Ankara), Gerald L.

  • Le mystère des manuscrits de la mer Morte

    Le mystère des manuscrits de la mer Morte

    Karton Kapak
    Dans la vallée de Qumrân, un jeune bédouin du nom de Mohamed el-Hamed déniche par le plus grand des hasards, dans une grotte à un kilomètre de la côte de la mer Morte, un certain nombre d'antiques parchemins. Nous sommes en 1947, et cette découverte va bouleverser notre connaissance des textes bibliques, car les parchemins en question sont les plus anciens manuscrits de l'Ancien Testament jamais retrouvés. Dominique Lormier, historien, nous raconte la fabuleuse histoire des rouleaux de Qumrân. Il nous livre un récit complet, mené sur le mode de l'enquête, de l'incroyable découverte des parchemins. Il revient sur le contenu des textes eux-mêmes, leurs décryptages successifs réalisés par les plus grands spécialistes de l'histoire des religions. Enfin, il s'attache aux polémiques et controverses, quelquefois très vives, qui s'ensuivirent, en particulier sur les nouvelles , hypothèses émises quant à la figure historique de Jésus. Un ouvrage passionnant sur l'une des " plus importantes découvertes des temps modernes ".
