The Evolution of Social Hierarchy in a Muisca Chiefdom of the Northern Andes of Colombia

The Evolution of Social Hierarchy in a Muisca Chiefdom of the Northern Andes of Colombia

Autor: Ana María Boada Rivas ,

Número de Páginas: 250

An archaeological study of the evolution of social complexity in the Valle de Samacá, Colombia, between AD 800 and AD 1600. This research documents the development of social hierarchy in one Muisca community and assesses the roles of resource control, wealth accumulation, prestige, and authority, as well as the interplay between these things as registered in the archaeological evidence recovered from the site of El Venado. The archaeological and ethnohistorical data analyzed indicate that emerging elites at El Venado did not rely on a single economic or ideological strategy for building social hierarchy, but instead on several intertwined strategies for gaining and maintaining social prestige and wealth.Complete text in English and Spanish.

One Eagle's Journey to Glory

One Eagle's Journey to Glory

Autor: Gerardo Solórzano Garcia ,

Número de Páginas: 222

As the Mexican golden eagle is raised and prepared by its parents to go out south in search of a magical moment where a new nation would take place, after the accomplishment of this journey, some nasty snakes kill his parents in an effort to kill him to prevent this magical moment from happening. Having experienced this nasty event, the eagle swears revenge and takes a flight to the south. The snakes realize that this eagle is still alive and team up with a big flock of bloodthirsty scavengers and, flying on top of them, head south to stop this eagle. Parallel to this eagle’s journey, the Aztecs too have to head over to the south in pursuit of this magical moment where an eagle has to be on top of a nopal devouring a serpent. There is where their empire and Tenochtitlan would be built. Both know that this is a god’s mandate and they have to do it even at the risk of their lives, for if they fail, a spell could fall on them forever.

The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, vol 2

The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, vol 2

Autor: Teresa of Avila ,

Número de Páginas: 504

This volume contains two of Teresa's most popular works: The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle. Shortly after writing The Book of Her Life for her confessor, St. Teresa wrote The Way of Perfection at the request of her nuns who were eager to learn about prayer and contemplation. Throughout this work she teaches her nuns about prayer and also teaches us. Toward the end of her life, after she had experienced both the spiritual betrothal and spiritual marriage, Teresa wrote The Interior Castle, her own panoramic view of her relationship with God, from the lowest stages to the highest. Teresa here demonstrates her great gift for writing about that relationship and attracting us to explore the possibility of pursuing it. Along with these two classics, Volume Two also includes one of Teresa's minor works, her Meditations on the Song of Songs. Nothing provided

Don Quixote: T.2.

Autor: Cervantes Saavedra de M. ,

Although the two parts are now published as a single work, Don Quixote, Part Two was a sequel published ten years after the original novel. While Part One was mostly farcical, the second half is more serious and philosophical about the theme of deception. Part Two of Don Quixote explores the concept of a character understanding that he is written about: an idea much explored in the 20th century.

The Falklands Regime

The Falklands Regime

Autor: Dr. Mike Bingham ,

Número de Páginas: 308

This true story tells how twenty years after British troops died for democracy in the Falklands War, a British citizen would be forced to flee the Falklands to escape political corruption and death threats, to seek democracy and freedom of speech in Argentina. When a British biologist dared to connect the starvation of 5 million penguins to commercial fishing that was making the Falklands elite rich, a deadly game of cat and mouse was unleashed. Bungled attempts to deport, imprison and kill Bingham, landed the Falkland Islands Government in the Supreme Court, which ruled that the Governor, Attorney General, Chief Executive and Executive Council had committed acts of human rights abuse that were “morally and constitutionally indefensible”. When the Falklands Government stated in public that they were not going to be stopped by the Supreme Court ruling, Bingham was forced to seek safety in Argentina. It is good to know that British troops did not die in vain.
