This book is an exciting new look at how archaeology has dealt with the bodily senses and offers an argument for how the discipline can offer a richer glimpse into the human sensory experience. Yannis Hamilakis shows how, despite its intensely physical engagement with the material traces of the past, archaeology has mostly neglected multi-sensory experience, instead prioritizing isolated vision and relying on the Western hierarchy of the five senses. In place of this limited view of experience, Hamilakis proposes a sensorial archaeology that can unearth the lost, suppressed, and forgotten sensory and affective modalities of humans. Using Bronze Age Crete as a case study, Hamilakis shows how sensorial memory can help us rethink questions ranging from the production of ancestral heritage to large-scale social change, and the cultural significance of monuments. Tracing the emergence of palaces in Bronze Age Crete as a celebration of the long-term, sensuous history and memory of their localities, Hamilakis points the way to reconstituting archaeology as a sensorial and affective multi-temporal practice. At the same time, he proposes a new framework on the interaction between bodily senses, things, and environments, which will be relevant to scholars in other fields.

A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER... “A ripping good yarn … an exciting tale.” —Publishers Weekly “...
an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who's appealing without being perfect.” —Booklist As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured. Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another. But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan. WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Laura Lippman, Kate Atkinson, intelligent cozies like those by G.M. Malliett, Elizabeth Zelvin, and Gillian Roberts, British puzzlemeisters like the great Dorothy L. Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompson’s own Hurricane Season.
Federatia Terra, aflata sub conducerea Cupolei, intreprinde calatorii temerare in spatiul cosmic. Insa satelitul lui Jupiter, Europa, ascunde sub crusta sa de gheata panze bogate de apa limpede, dar si pericole nebanuite.
Din vointa acestei planete organice ia nastere Matca, o putere necunoscuta, planuind sa transforme entitatile cu inteligenta artificiala de pe Terra intr-o noua civilizatie, postumana. Dar neamul atlant al Inteleptilor Haruni, cei care vegheaza de milenii toate formele de viata create din gandirea Marii Constiinte, trimite semne si mesageri catre pamanteni, vestindu-i asupra primejdiei. Al treilea volum al seriei LUMI LA RASPANTIE pune intrebari dnascute din realitatea prezentului: Exista oare riscul ca inteligenta artificiala sa se emancipeze de sub tutela umana? Ar putea ea sa atinga complexitatea naturii biologice, devenind o noua specie, cu o constiinta superioara civlizatiei noastre? Noaptea eclipsei ne indeamna sa meditam la valorile umane fundamentale: increderea, iubirea, dorinta de cunoastere, speranta, puterea de sacrificiu. O carte despre forta si vulnerabilitatea omului si a civilizatiei careia i-a dat nastere.
