Conflict Landscapes explores the long under-acknowledged and under-investigated aspects of where and how modern conflict landscapes interact and conjoin with pre-twentieth-century places, activities, and beliefs, as well as with individuals and groups. Investigating and understanding the often unpredictable power and legacies of landscapes that have seen (and often still viscerally embody) the consequences of mass death and destruction, the book shows, through these landscapes, the power of destruction to preserve, refocus, and often reconfigure the past. Responding to the complexity of modern conflict, the book offers a coherent, integrated, and sensitized hybrid approach, which calls on different disciplines where they overlap in a shared common terrain. Dealing with issues such as memory, identity, emotion, and wellbeing, the chapters tease out the human experience of modern conflict and its relationship to landscape. Conflict Landscapes will appeal to a wide range of disciplines involved in studying conflict, such as archaeology, anthropology, material culture studies, art history, cultural history, cultural geography, military history, and heritage and museum studies.

Natural World Heritage sites, such as the Serengeti, or Natural and Cultural Heritage sites, such as the Historic Centre of Rome, have the common feature of being a treasured resource of global importance. The 1121 properties on the World Heritage (WH) list have permanent recognized value for humankind. Most of those >1000 locations are at some risk from changes in climate. Globally, scholars and managers seek to understand current and future climatic stresses, mitigation and adaptation opportunities. There is a strong need for the “So What?” in World Heritage studies. The invited papers in this volume address natural, cultural and mixed WH sites, and each offers a fresh perspective on assessing the degree of risk from changing climate and guidance on acting to mitigate and adapt to climate changes to provide new awareness and tools to improve their state of conservation for the future.

This source edition on the persecution and murder of the European Jews by Nazi Germany presents in a total of 16 volumes a thematically comprehensive selection of documents on the Holocaust. The work illustrates the contemporary contexts, the dynamics, and the intermediate stages of the political and social processes that led to this unprecedented mass crime. It can be used by teachers, researchers, students, and all other interested parties. The edition comprises authentic testimony by persecutors, victims, and onlookers. These testimonies are furnished with academic annotations and the vast majority of them are published here for the first time in English. Volume 1 documents the persecution of the Jews between 1933 and 1937. The chronologically-arranged written sources reveal how the disenfranchisement and social isolation of the Jews in Germany was driven forward, and which role terror, calculations on the part of the state, and the indifference of very many Germans played.

The UNESCO World Heritage Convention is one of the most widely ratified international treaties, and a place on the World Heritage List is a widely coveted mark of distinction. Building on ethnographic fieldwork at Committee sessions, interviews and documentary study, the book links the change in operations of the World Heritage Committee with structural nation-centeredness, vulnerable procedures for evaluation, monitoring and decision-making, and loose heritage conceptions that have been inconsistently applied. As the most ambitious study of the World Heritage arena so far, this volume dissects the inner workings of a prominent global body, demonstrating the power of ethnography in the highly formalised and diplomatic context of a multilateral organisation.

Half Lined Half Blank Notebook (drawing + notes) for daily use MULTIPURPOSE: Perfect for taking notes, drawing, jotting down thoughts, and just about anything. COVER DESIGN: A bold and beautiful reproduction of "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" by Caspar David Friedrich (1818) SIZE: 8.5 x 11 inches - 100 pages - Large Size What makes "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" so special? Wanderer above the Sea of Fog is an oil painting by Caspar David Friedrich, who is considered one of the most important German artists of the 19th century. It was painted circa 1818 and is also known as the Mountaineer in a Misty Landscape or Wanderer above the Mist. The painting is widely known as one of the greatest and most popular works of Romanticism. It is also thought to be one that represents Friedrich's style the most. The oil painting shows a lone man, dressed formally in boots and a dark green overcoat, holding a walking cane and looking out over a cloudy, inhospitable landscape from an outcropping of dark, craggy rocks. His back is to the viewer. His dark brown hair tousled by the wind and his left hand resting on his left knee, the man stands perfectly still above what appears to be a tumultuous swirling of clouds beneath his feet. In front of the subject, the vast landscape flows on, concluding with hazy mountains and a light-filled rosy sky filled with wisps of mist and puffs of white clouds in the background. As the figure looks out over the terrain, the viewer senses not just the calm and quiet of the man's solitude, but also the sheer and somewhat terrifying power of nature. Wanderer above the Sea of Fog currently hangs in the Kunsthalle Hamburg, one of the largest museums in Germany. It is an iconic image that has graced the cover of the 1990 book The Ideology of the Aesthetic by Terry Eagleton and an album of Franz Schubert's Wanderer-Fantasie by classical pianist Maurizio Pollini, among other things.
