The civil war in Afghanistan gave unparalleled impetus to the rapacious excavations of the burial mounds and graves of Ancient Bactria, once situated on the territory of modern-day Afghanistan. All kinds of funeral offerings -mostly seals and amulets decorated with intricate narrative images - have appeared on the counters of antiques stores throughout the world. The one thing that saved these items, excavated by amateur archeologists, from disappearing altogether, was the fact that some of them ended up in large private collections and museums. It was only thanks to the kindness of true antique connoisseurs like Ron Garner, Andrew Hale and Jonathan Rosen, that the author was able to compile a summary description of these seals and amulets, in an attempt to save this precious material from disappearing forever. The subjects depicted on the seals and amulets reflect the myths of the Bactrians, giving us a unique opportunity to look into the intellectual world of a people who did not leave behind any written records. Definite parallels can be drawn between most of the images depicted on the seals and amulets, and the Syro-Hittite glyptics of the Bronze Age, leaving no question as to the historical succession of the two. The author was able to date the Bactrian seals and amulets with a certain degree of accuracy thanks to his discoveries of identical or very similar articles during scientifically-controlled excavations in neighboring Margiana (on the territory of what is now Turkmenistan). This study examines over 1,800 seals and amulets, 95 percent of which are being published for the first time. Having been put together in a single volume, they indisputably attest to the existence of a separate Bactro-Margianian school of glyptics and sphragistics.Издательство: Pentagraphic, LtdАвтор: Victor Sarianidi
On October 4–6, 2017, The International Scientific Conference «Capital of Revolutions» was held at the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the epoch-making event – The Great Russian Revolution of 1917, which predetermined the course of the world history of the 20th century. The conference was organized by the Financial University and the Institute of Russian History of Russian Academy of Sciences. The concept of the event is distinguished by the original approach of analysis of revolutions from viewpoints of various types of capital: political, economic, social and cultural. Revolutions are ambiguous, but very important historical phenomena on the significance of their causes and consequences. Within the framework of the conference, scientific discussions took place on the most important substantive issues: what are the costs and benefits of revolutions, the causes and driving forces, technologies and processes, and the consequences of such events? Particular attention was paid to the relationship between the state, elites and society in a revolutionary situation. This scientific monograph summarizes the scientific discussions and creates an idea of the multifaceted nature of the phenomenon of revolutions, as well as the ways and methods of researching them.
Cancer imposes daunting effects on the nervous system Brain cancer is one of the most devastating diagnoses a physician can deliver. Cancer of the nervous system can take many different forms. Treatment is specific to the type of malignancy, its location in the nervous system and, increasingly, its molecular characteristics. The challenges manifest further when management choices need to be made, and multidisciplinary approaches are required. Additional complexities arise in children, where the developing neurological system requires more sensitive treatment. Neuro-oncology unmasks the complexities to provide a straightforward guide to cancers of the nervous system. Following a general approach to diagnosis and treatment, the clinical aspects of specific cancer types in adults and children are explained in practical terms. A final section considers the effect of system cancer on the nervous system and the side effects of treatment. Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuro-oncology will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively. Neurology in Practice Series Editors Robert A Gross , MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA Jonathan W Mink, MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA The Neurology in Practice series provides clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guides to effective patient care for neurologists. The tone is practical, not academic, with authors offering guidance on what might be done and what should be avoided. The books are informed by evidence-based practice and feature: Algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate 'Tips and Tricks' boxes – hints on improving outcomes 'Caution' warning boxes – hints on avoiding complications 'Science Revisited' – quick reminder of the basic science principles Summaries of key evidence and suggestions for further reading
