The Barbarians Speak

The Barbarians Speak re-creates the story of Europe's indigenous people who were nearly stricken from historical memory even as they adopted and transformed aspects of Roman culture. The Celts and Germans inhabiting temperate Europe before the arrival of the Romans left no written record of their lives and were often dismissed as "barbarians" by the Romans who conquered them. Accounts by Julius Caesar and a handful of other Roman and Greek writers would lead us to think that prior to contact with the Romans, European natives had much simpler political systems, smaller settlements, no evolving social identities, and that they practiced human sacrifice. A more accurate, sophisticated picture of the indigenous people emerges, however, from the archaeological remains of the Iron Age. Here Peter Wells brings together information that has belonged to the realm of specialists and enables the general reader to share in the excitement of rediscovering a "lost people." In so doing, he is the first to marshal material evidence in a broad-scale examination of the response by the Celts and Germans to the Roman presence in their lands. The recent discovery of large pre-Roman settlements throughout central and western Europe has only begun to show just how complex native European societies were before the conquest. Remnants of walls, bone fragments, pottery, jewelry, and coins tell much about such activities as farming, trade, and religious ritual in their communities; objects found at gravesites shed light on the richly varied lives of individuals. Wells explains that the presence--or absence--of Roman influence among these artifacts reveals a range of attitudes toward Rome at particular times, from enthusiastic acceptance among urban elites to creative resistance among rural inhabitants. In fascinating detail, Wells shows that these societies did grow more cosmopolitan under Roman occupation, but that the people were much more than passive beneficiaries; in many cases they helped determine the outcomes of Roman military and political initiatives. This book is at once a provocative, alternative reading of Roman history and a catalyst for overturning long-standing assumptions about nonliterate and indigenous societies.

The University of Idaho is Idaho's flagship and oldest public university, located in the rural city of Moscow in Latah County. It is the state's land-grant and primary research university.

The Role of Foreign Aid in Combating Rural Poverty
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As I travel to rural Armenia as a program assistant of a development project, I observe instances of poverty and increasing divergence in living standards. The divergence becomes more arresting the farther our car departs from the capital city Yerevan. We divert from the highway to visit a number of communities where project specialists are training local farmers on how to irrigate their land plots. I listen to the questions raised by the farmers about malfunctioning institutions, high costs of irrigation water, selective marketing opportunities and the government's reluctance to support local agricultural production.Most of the training participants welcome the initiative of trainings in the scope of the development project but also raise doubts whether it is timely. How effectively will the knowledge they gain be invested to boost their incomes if the system does not provide incentives for them to be more productive? More pessimistic farmers question whether corruption at the government level and dependence on the rest of the world does not escalate as more foreign funded projects "enter" the country under the guise of developing it.

The high volume of tourists in different regions of Guilan (province) has brought many economic impacts to the local and rural communities. The main aim of this book is spatial analysis of tourism activities on rural economy based on the spatial distribution of tourism's benefits. Study area of the research was Rezvanshahr in the North of Iran. Research required data were collected through field study and some documents. Collected data have analysed based on spatial analysis using Geographical Information system. The results showed that tourism both positively and negatively affect rural settlements, including an improvement in local inhabitants' qualities of life and resettlement of mountainous areas, increased land demands especially in coastal and mountainous areas and environmental damages, respectively. Therefore, it is necessary for the specialists and authorities to stabilize and legalize land use in order to preserve the natural resources as well as preventing illegal changes by adopting effective deterrent laws and regulations since the results indicate that favourable outcomes of tourism activities are achieved along with productive activities.

Improved Local Chicken Rearing in Uganda
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While farming innovations have been undertaken, aimed at boosting unit production, factors affecting the innovation adoption have had little attention. Experience has shown that whereas the benefits of innovations to the intended beneficiaries are obvious, often there is no corresponding interest from the beneficiaries. This has caused frustrations among the research scientists, social workers and policy implementers. This book is based on study conducted in Uganda, it examines the factors responsible for the improved local chicken rearing innovations. Statistical analysis revealed the relationship of the socio-demographic and socio-economic factors, and the innovation adoption. The analysis attempts to identify key considerations while implementing the poultry innovations. This book is useful to animal husbandry scientists (at both research stations and the field), innovation specialists, government departments and policy implementers. Rural based NGOs implementing community livelihood activities, no doubt will find the book resourceful. Attempt has been made to simplify and make it readable and understandable for academic and ordinary use.
