First published in 1992 this anthology quickly became the standard for multicultural introductions to philosophy. Composed of a group of culturally diverse readings addressing a selection of seminal philosophical questions in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics, VOICES OF WISDOM introduces students to the traditional terrain of philosophy as developed in the European tradition, yet in a manner that embraces significant philosophical insights borne out of different cultural legacies.

First Encounters compiles a wealth of writings that describe, from Indigenous perspectives, five centuries of European encroachments into indigenous worlds. Editor Leavitt, a retired professor of education and international development official, provides 42 accounts that both chronicle initial impressions of Europeans' beliefs, strategies, and technologies, and describe the destabilizing effects on traditional cultures. Accounts range from the 16th century through the 1980s, arranged in five groupings: Africa; North America, including Mexico; South America (Peru); Greater Australia (Papua New Guinea); and Asia. The sections vary widely in length and strength. Although the writings are described as "authentic, first-person" accounts, this notion is interpreted broadly. Some are interviews, transcribed and translated by Europeans of varying degrees of sympathy, or fictionalizations such as Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart (1958), along with autobiographical narratives and critiques inevitably expressing the complicated reactions wrought by exposure to Western schooling. Although all of the accounts have been previously published, some are buried in earlier volumes or are otherwise difficult to obtain. Leavitt has provided a valuable service by bringing them together in a single, well-organized anthology. The volume also includes time lines and an annotated bibliography. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers. General Readers; Lower-division Undergraduates; Upper-division Undergraduates; Graduate Students; Researchers/Faculty.

Mesoamerican Lithic Technology

Author: Conference on Ancient Mesoamerican Obsidian Blade Production

Publisher:

Page: 350

Any overview of prehispanic society in the Americas would identify its obsidian core-blade production as a unique and highly inventive technology. Normally termed prismatic blades, these long, parallel-sided flakes are among the sharpest cutting tools ever produced by humans. Their standardized form permitted interchangeable use, and such blades became the cutting tool of choice throughout Mesoamerica between 600-800 B.C. Because considerable production skill is required, increased demand may have stimulated the appearance of craft specialists who played an integral role in Mesoamerican society. Some investigators have argued that control over obsidian also had a significant effect on the development and organization of chiefdom and state-level societies. While researchers have long recognized the potential of obsidian studies, recent work has focused primarily on compositional analysis to reconstruct trade and distribution networks. Study of blade production has received much less attention, and many aspects of this highly evolved craft are still lost. This volume seeks to identify current research questions in Mesoamerican lithic technology and to demonstrate that replication studies coupled with experimental research design are valuable analytical approaches to such questions.

"In spite of the sexism that has denied women full active status in their religions, the editor calls this title a "celebration" of the scholarship of recent years. In order to offer a global perspective, contributions were sought from non-Western as well as Western scholars for the 600 signed articles. Entries encompass individual religions and their variations, biographies, movements, issues, and the relationship of religion to the study of art, literature, and science. While broadest coverage is given to the major religions of the world, information is also provided on Sikhism, African religions, Santeria, and Native American religions and many others. An added feature is the synoptic outline, which provides conceptual themes to the reader. This valuable resource is accessible to the high school and college student, to the researcher and the general reader"."In spite of the sexism that has denied women full active status in their religions, the editor calls this title a "celebration" of the scholarship of recent years.

"Bison in the Bronx and a theology of creation? Hip-hop culture and a transformed understanding of church? In rich and often provocative essays, the contributors to In Our Own Voices rethink and reconsider important theological themes in a variety of idioms, vibrant idioms that reflect the depth and the breadth of Latino/a theologies. Drawing not only on the 'classical' sources of Western European and North American scholarship, they demonstrate in compelling ways that intentionally contextual theologies in our own voices have important resonances across communities, contexts, and cultures."-Jean-Pierre Ruiz, S. John's University, New York --

The biographies are followed by a set of 4–6 related primary sources, many in the individuals' own voices, a "Questions to Consider" section, and an annotated bibliography.
