Universal empire : a comparative approach to imperial culture and representation in Eurasian history by Peter F Bang( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The claim by certain rulers to universal empire has a long history stretching as far back as the Assyrian and Achaemenid empires. This book traces its various manifestations in Near Eastern and classical antiquity, the Islamic world, Asia and Central America as well as considering seventeenth- and eighteenth-century European discussions of international order. As such it is an exercise in comparative world history combining a multiplicity of approaches, from ancient history, to literary and philosophical studies, to the history of art and international relations, and historical sociology. The notion of universal, imperial rule is presented as an elusive and much coveted prize among monarchs in history, around which developed forms of kingship and political culture. Different facets of the phenomenon are explored under three, broadly conceived, headings: symbolism, ceremony and diplomatic relations; universal or cosmopolitan literary high-cultures; and, finally, the inclination to present universal imperial rule as an expression of cosmic order."
Fremmed og moderne : glimt af antikken i Europa by Peter F Bang( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fremmed og moderne søger at ændre vores syn på den antikke kulturs efterliv i europæisk civilisation. I dag betragter vi antikken som stivnet tradition, en forbigangen fortid. Men antikken har ikke primært fungeret som udtryk for det etablerede. Derimod har antikken inspireret generationer af europæere, fordi den repræsenterede noget fremmedartet og genstridigt i deres univers. Den antikke erfaring har modsagt mange efterfølgende tidsaldres forestillinger. På den måde kom den til at virke som en kreativt, udfordrende og inspirerende kraft i europæisk kultur. Den udfordrede europæerne ved at vi

The Oxford handbook of the state in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford Handbook of the State in the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean offers a comprehensive survey of ancient state formation in western Eurasia and North Africa. Eighteen experts introduce readers to a wide variety of systems spanning 4,000 years, from the earliest known states in world history to the Roman Empire and its immediate successors. They seek to understand the inner workings of these states by focusing on key issues: political and military power, the impact of ideologies, the rise and fall of individual polities, and the mechanisms of cooperation, coercion, and exploitation. This shared emphasis on critical institutions and dynamics invites comparative and cross-cultural perspectives. A detailed introductory review of contemporary approaches to the study of the state puts the rich historical case studies in context. Transcending conventional boundaries between ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean history and between ancient and early medieval history, this volume will be of interest not only to historians but also anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, and political scientists. Its accessible style and up-to-date references will make it an invaluable resource for both students and scholars
The Roman bazaar : a comparative study of trade and markets in a tributary empire by Peter F Bang( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has long been held by historians that trade and markets in the Roman Empire resembled those found later in early modern Europe. Using the concept of the bazaar, however, Peter Bang argues that the development spawned by Roman hegemony proves clear similarities with large, pre-colonial or tributary empires such as the Ottoman, the Mughal in India, and the Ming/Ch'ing in China. By comparing Roman market formation particularly with conditions in the Mughal Empire, Bang changes our comparative horizons and situates the ongoing debate over the Roman economy firmly within wider discussions about world history and the 'great divergence' between east and west. The broad scope of this book takes in a wide range of topics, from communal networks and family connections to imperial cultures of consumption, and will therefore be of great interest to scholars and students of ancient history and pre-industrial economics."--Jacket
