Reluctant heroes : rickshaw pullers in Hong Kong and Canton, 1874-1954 by Chi Ming Fung( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reluctant Heroes is a study of rickshaw pullers in Hong Kong and Canton. The author reconstructs the daily lives and social environments of rickshaw pullers, the majority of whom were emigrants who differed in the loyalties of dialect, place of origin and kinship. Low skilled yet partially self-employed, rickshaw pullers relied on entrepreneurial flair, in addition to physical stamina, to tout for fares, thus bridging the culture of petty traders and physical laborers. In the volatile urban environment, they were subjected not just to patron-client problems, but also the directives and regulations of the state, and interventions of the police, and the British colonial and Chinese authorities." "Set against the backdrop of two contrasting yet interrelated cities in South China, "Reluctant Heroes" brings a richer understanding of urban living through a comparative study of the historic pattern of adaptation in the urban workplace, the powers of the state, and the repertoire of mass activism."--BOOK JACKET

Investigates how women, religion and culture have interacted in the context of 19th and 20th century Iran, covering topics as seemingly diverse as the social and cultural history of Persian cuisine, the work and attitudes of 19th century Christian missionaries, the impact of growing female literacy, and the consequences of developments since 1979
Muhammad Juki's Shahnamah of Firdausi by Barbara Brend( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Shahnamah of Firdausi produced for the Timurid Muhammad Juki (a grandson of Timur) in the 1440s is one of the finest surviving Persian manuscripts produced between the heyday of Baysunghur's academy in Herat and the appearance of Bihzad." "It has thirty-one exquisite miniature paintings depicting scenes from the epic tale and fine illumination on two pages. The manuscript was presented to the Royal Asiatic Society in 1834 by Lt. Col. C.J. Doyle who had probably received it as a parting gift from Lord Hastings on leaving India. It had previously been in the Mughal Imperial Library and bears the seals of the Mughal emperors Babur, Humayun, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzheb; there is an autograph note by Shah Jahan and further notes reveal its subsequent history." "This monograph written by Dr Barbara Brend is the first complete study of the manuscript and provides a detailed analysis of the cycle of illustrations; a commentary on the Mughal notes by A.H. Morton which offer telling insights into the practices of the Mughal library"--Jacket

The rise of the Ottoman Empire : studies in the history of Turkey, 13th-15th centuries by Paul Wittek( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Wittek's The Rise of the Ottoman Empire was first published by the Royal Asiatic Society in 1938 and has been out of print for more than a quarter of a century. The present reissue of the text also brings together translations of his other studies on Ottoman history; five closely interconnected writings from the founding of the state to the Fall of Constantinople. All but one of these pieces reproduces the texts of lectures or conference papers delivered by Wittek between 1936 and 1938 when he was teaching at Université Libré in Brussels, Belgium. The journals in which they were originally published are for the most part inaccessible except in specialist libraries, in a period when Wittek's activities as an Ottoman historian are coming under increasing study within the Anglo-Saxon world of scholarship. An introduction by Colin Heywood sets Wittek's work in its historical and historiographical context for the benefit of those students not privileged to experience it firsthand. This book is an interesting contribution to studies on Asian and Middle East history"--

Studies in Turkic and Mongolic linguistics by Gerard Clauson( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, now back in print after having been unavailable for many years, is one of the most important contributions to Turkic and Mongolian linguistics, and to the contentious áAltaic theory'. Proponents of the theory hold that Turkic is part of the Altaic family, and that Turkic accordingly exists in parallel with Mongolic and Tungusic-Manchu. Whatever the truth of this theory, Sir Gerard Clauson's erudite and vigorously expressed views, based as they were on a remarkable knowledge of the lexical of the Altaic languages and his outstanding work in the field of Turkish lexicography, continues to command respect and deserve attention."--Jacket
