Moving with her mother from Vancouver to Wells, British Columbia, Elizabeth Connell longs for the excitement of the city and her father, brother, and friends left behind. While she is in the peaceful graveyard of nearby Barkerville she finds a small gold ring that has very special powers. By twisting the ring on her finger, Elizabeth is transported to the nineteenth century during the heyday of the gold rush. Caught between her present life with family and friends and a love in the past, Elizabeth learns more than history.

The Muqaddimah, often translated as "Introduction" or "Prolegomenon," is the most important Islamic history of the premodern world. Written by the great fourteenth-century Arab scholar Ibn Khaldûn (d. 1406), this monumental work laid down the foundations of several fields of knowledge, including philosophy of history, sociology, ethnography, and economics. The first complete English translation, by the eminent Islamicist and interpreter of Arabic literature Franz Rosenthal, was published in three volumes in 1958 as part of the Bollingen Series and received immediate acclaim in America and abroad. A one-volume abridged version of Rosenthal's masterful translation was first published in 1969. This new edition of the abridged version, with the addition of a key section of Rosenthal's own introduction to the three-volume edition, and with a new introduction by Bruce B. Lawrence, will reintroduce this seminal work to twenty-first-century students and scholars of Islam and of medieval and ancient history.

The Royal Historical Society's Annual Bibliography of British and Irish History provides a comprehensive and authoritative survey of books and articles on historical topics published in a single calendar year. It is available before the end of the following year, and is an indispensable tool for historians. The volume is divided into sections to cover periods of British and Irish history from Roman Britain to the late twentieth century and includes works on imperial and commonwealth history. Over two hundred journals are searched annually and the aim of the editors is to list all relevant books and articles published in the U.K. The editors have established a comprehensive and continuing computer database, which facilitates rapid publication in volume form and enables access to this invaluable body of information in a variety of ways. The book's contents are indexed by author, place, personal name, and subject. The subject keywords enable scholars to trace publications in which they are interested, beyond the information conveyed in the title.

The information world has undergone drastic changes since the publication of the 3rd edition of The Oxford Guide to Library Research in 2005, and Thomas Mann, a veteran reference librarian at the Library of Congress, has extensively revised his text to reflect those changes. This book will answer two basic questions: First, what is the extent of the significant research resources you will you miss if you confine your research entirely, or even primarily, to sources available on the open Internet? Second, if you are trying to get a reasonably good overview of the literature on a particular topic, rather than just "something quickly" on it, what are the several alternative methods of subject searching--which are not available on the Web--that are usually much more efficient for that purpose than typing keywords into a blank search box, with the results displayed by relevance-ranking computer algorithms? This book shows researchers how to do comprehensive research on any topic. It explains the variety of search mechanisms available, so that the researcher can have the reasonable confidence that s/he has not overlooked something important. This includes not just lists of resources, but discussions of the ways to search within them: how to find the best search terms, how to combine the terms, and how to make the databases (and other sources) show relevant material even when you don't know how to specify the best search terms in advance. The book's overall structuring by nine methods of searching that are applicable in any subject area, rather than by subjects or by types of literature, is unique among guides to research. Also unique is the range and variety of concrete examples of what to do--and of what not to do. The book is not "about" the Internet: it is about the best alternatives to the Internet--the sources that are not on the open Web to begin with, that can be found only through research libraries and that are more than ever necessary for any kind of substantive scholarly research. More than any other research guide available, this book directly addresses and provides solutions to the serious problems outlined in recent studies documenting the profound lack of research skills possessed by today's "digital natives."

Transnational religious and faith-based movements play crucial roles in peacebuilding with their strong faith-based motivation, long term commitment, religious, spiritual and moral authority and ability to facilitate constructive social relations between different groups of population. It is not religion itself that is influential, but rather the ways in which it has been interpreted and practiced that is influential in religion's orientation toward radicalism, violence, conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Thus, it is necessary to elaborate upon what Islam and Muslims have to say about peacebuilding. The exploration of the contributions to this volume is made with regards to the title in hand by the thought and practice of the global movement associated with the Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah Gnlen. Gnlen is described in this volume as "border transgressor" between East and West. Gnlen's discourse is analyzed and contextualized along with a detailed analysis of intercultural dialogue in his theology and thought. Contributors also observe Gnlen's discourse in action and its impact in different actual settings. The importance and distinctiveness of teaching of Gnlen and the practice of the movement is that it is rooted in a confident Turkish Islamic heritage while being fully engaged with modernity. It offers the possibility of a contextualized renewal for Muslims in the modern world while being fully rooted in the teachings of the Qur'an and the practice of the Prophet. It advocates the freedom of religion while positively contributing to the wider society based on a commitment to service of others. Fethullah Gnlen has inspired many people in Turkey to establish educational institutions that combine modern sciences with ethics and spirituality. He is perhaps the most significant Muslim theologian and activist in contemporary Turkey. His efforts have resulted in the emergence of a civil society movement, which academics name after him. The actual size of Gnlen's millions of followers and sympathizers is not exactly known. But it is agreed that it is the largest civil movement in the country. Gnlen holds an inclusive, universalist and transcending Islamic conception. He does not claim ownership to a monopoly of truth, and the Movement is not an ideological movement, thus it is inclusive as opposed to exdusivist Islamist ideologies. The Gnlen Movement "aims to revitalize faith in secular regimes and not against them." In Gnlen's view, the faithful can reside comfortably in secular environments. He makes reference to an Anglo-Saxon understanding of passive secularism and argues that within the boundaries of this type of secularism, Islam and secularity of the state could be compatible. Gnlen's theology of peace is based on the integrity of the individual regardless of ethnic or religious background and approach to peacebuilding, therefore, is one of "bottom-up" social change. Scholars of peacebuilding consider forgiveness essential for peacebuilding, and in Gnlen's theology of peacebuilding, there is no place for revenge. Chapters in this edited volume substantiate that both Muslim teachings and Gnlen discourse and practice support acceptance of diversity, pluralism, nonviolence, alliance of civilizations and peacebuilding. John L. Esposito is University Professor of Religion and International Affairs at Georgetown University and Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. Ihsan Yilmaz is a professor of political science at Fatih University, Istanbul. His research areas include the Turkish diaspora, Turkish politics, Islamic movements, Muslim legal pluralism and Fethullah Gnlen's faith-based movement.

PATTERNS ACROSS CULTURES is a rhetorically organized reader driven by the principle that as the world gets smaller, students should be exposed to a wide variety of cultural perspectives--both from within the United States and from other countries. Many of the reading selections in the text are by writers who have never been anthologized, providing an invigorating alternative to traditional readers. Post-reading features for each selection, including questions on author's "Meaning," "Technique," and "Language," help students examine how the selection utilizes both the primary mode and other modes as well; calls out key vocabulary terms; highlights thematic connections between selections; and provides prompts for both personal and critical writing. To assist those instructors who prefer a thematic framework for discussing the selections, a thematic Table of Contents and Thematic Links questions connecting each essay with one or more others on similar themes will provide inspiration for theme-based discussions and writing assignments.
