            This volume presents a much-needed rethinking and proposes a more nuanced, inclusive, and capacious approach to energy ethics that will help us grapple with some of the most pressing issues of our time. The contributors demonstrate how ethics emerge through people's everyd...ay thoughts and practices, whether they work in renewables, nuclear, or fossil fuels; whether they work in industry, policy, or advocacy; whether they produce, distribute, or consume energy It shows how to create an analytical space in which we can attend to people's own experiences and evaluations without uncritically imposing judgements of how we would like the world to be By attending to the broader political and economic contexts in which these everyday energy encounters take place, this volume draws attention to the plurality and complexity that characterises the multiple and overlapping 'ethical worlds' in which we, our interlocutors, and other beings participate

            Children in the Bible and the Ancient World: Comparative and Historical Methods in Reading Ancient Children
             

            Children in the Bible and the Ancient World: Comparative and Historical Methods in Reading Ancient Children (Hardback)

            The topic of children in the Bible has long been under-represented, but this has recently changed with the development of childhood studies in broader fields, and the work of several dedicated scholars. While many reading methods are employed in this emerging field, comparative w...ork with children in the ancient world has been an important tool to understand the function of children in biblical texts. Children in the Bible and the Ancient World broadly introduces children in the ancient world, and specifically children in the bible. It brings together an international group of experts who help readers understand how children are constructed in biblical literature across three broad areas: Children in the Hebrew Bible and the Ancient Near East, Children in Christian Writings and the Greco-Roman World, Children and Materiality. The diverse essays cover topics such as: vows in Ugarit and the Hebrew Bible, obstetric knowledge, infant abandonment, the role of marriage, Greek abandonment texts, ritual entry for children into Christian communities, education, sexual abuse, and the role of archaeological figurines in children's lives. The volume also includes expertise in biological anthropology to study the skeletal remains of ancient children, as well as how ancient texts illuminate Mary's female maturity. The volume is written in an accessible style suitable for non-specialists, and it is equipped with a helpful resource bibliography that organizes select secondary sources from these essays into meaningful categories for further study. Children in the Bible and the Ancient World is a helpful introduction to any who study children and childhood in the ancient world. In addition, the volume will be of interest to experts who are engaged in historical approaches to biblical studies, while appreciating how the ancient world continues to illuminate select topics in biblical texts.

            This book explores the human past in Egypt's `capital zone': the nexus of social activity located at the junction of the Nile valley and the Nile delta, the archaeology of which is a template through time for the development of Nile valley civilization as a whole. Instead of a li...near narrative, the volume takes a wider four-dimensional approach, considering ecology and climate change, the Nile regime and human response to it over time, the cognitive aspects of the environment; and instead of insisting on a compartmentalised division based on a dynasty-led system of time parcels, it argues for natural and social continuity in a broader context over 5000 years or more.

            How do children cope when their world is transformed by war? This book uses oral histories to construct an historical anthropology of childhood in Second World Britain, focusing on objects and spaces such as gas masks, air raid shelters and bombed-out buildings. In their struggle...s to cope with the fears and upheavals of wartime, children reimagined and reshaped these material traces into toys, treasures and playgrounds. With families divided by military service, war work and evacuation, this study of the material worlds of wartime childhood offers a unique viewpoint into an extraordinary period in history with powerful resonances across time and space into the present day.
