Prosopography of the Byzantine Empire ( Book )
in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Prosopography of the Byzantine Empire is designed to record, eventually in a computerised relational database, all surviving information about every individual mentioned in Byzantine textual sources, together with as many as possible of the individuals recorded in seal sources, during the period from 641 to 1261, and every individual mentioned in non-Byzantine sources during the same period who is 'relevant' (on a generous interpretation) to Byzantine affairs. The project covers the period from 641 (the terminal date of Volume III of the publication Prosopography of the later Roman Empire) to 1261 (the commencement date of the publication Prosopographisches Lexikon der Palaiologenzeit)

Auditor Independence Auditing, Corporate Governance and Market Confidence by Ismail Adelopo( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Auditors' independence has been called into question in the light of their being complicit in some of the corporate misbehaviour exposed in recent years. Here, the author examines the historical role of auditing in corporate governance and the regulatory context. He sets the function within a theoretical framework and then provides empirical analysis of problem issues such as the relationship between audit committees and external auditors and the probity of providing non-auditing services to audit clients. The focus on matters that are damaging to market confidence and threatening to the reput

Engaging with some of the central issues in the sociology of religion, this volume investigates the role and significance of churches and religion in contemporary Western and Eastern Europe.

Norman tradition and transcultural heritage : exchange of cultures in the 'Norman' peripheries of medieval Europe by Stefan Burkhardt( Book )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this volume look at questions of Norman traditions in some of the peripheral Norman dominions. Divided into two sections, the volume begins with eight chapters focusing on Norman Sicily. These essays demonstrate both the degree of cultural intermingling that made this kingdom an extraordinary paradigm in this regard, and how the Normans began to develop their own distinct origin myths that diverged from those of Norman France and England. The second section of the volume provides four essays that explore Norman ethnicity and identity more broadly, including two looking at Norman
Policy expertise in contemporary democracies by Stephen Brooks( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the world of Wikipedia, blogging and citizen journalism where huge masses of information and the capability to disseminate opinions, thoughts and ideas is available at the click of a mouse what is the role and impact of political experts? The contributors to this insightful and original volume argue that across the western world in general, the political expert occupies as important a role today as at any time in the past. The ubiquity of information and the fact that the experts and the organizations to which they are affiliated may be viewed as having an ideological agenda has not diminished their role, influence or status. Governments and the media still rely on them for information and advice whilst organizations in civil society need them in order to provide the evidence, arguments and policy recommendations that are essential to having a voice in the public conversation. By examining how these policy experts and their think tanks continue to exert influence across a range of modern western democracies a better understanding of the role of policy expertise and an examination of how it may develop and evolve throughout the rest of the world is reached

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reception of imperial ekphraseis in Hagia Sophia to the sounds and smells of the back streets of Constantinople, the sensory perception of Byzantium is an area that lends itself perfectly to an investigation into the experience of the Byzantine world. The theme of experience embraces all aspects of Byzantine studies and the Experiencing Byzantium symposium brought together archaeologists, architects, art historians, historians, musicians and theologians in a common quest to step across the line that divides how we understand and experience the Byzantine world and how the Byzantines th
Approaches to the Byzantine family by Leslie Brubaker( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The study of the family is one of the major lacunas in Byzantine Studies. Angeliki Laiou remarked in 1989 that 'the study of the Byzantine family is still in its infancy', and this assertion remains true today. The present volume addresses this lacuna. It comprises 19 chapters written by international experts in the field which take a variety of approaches to the study of the Byzantine family, and embrace a chronological span from the later Roman to the late Byzantine empire."--Prelimimary page
