"Druidism was the religion of the Celts and the Druids themselves were all-powerful, taking precedence over the Celtic kings: Over and above the evidence of classical texts and of archaeology, the richest source of information about the Druids is the vernacular material from Ireland and Wales. It is the author's unparalleled familiarity with the Gaelic texts, and her ability to see Druidism through Celtic eyes, that marks out this study from earlier books and strips away modern myths about the Druids."--Jacket

Indigenous peoples and the collaborative stewardship of nature : knowledge binds and institutional conflicts by Anne Ross( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation of the value of collaborative natural resource management partnerships between Indigenous communities and government agencies. Using case studies from Australia, the United States, Thailand and India, the authors examine why Indigenous peoples and their knowledge about natural systems are often denied a place at the natural resources management table. A range of management options that claim to have integrated Indigenous peoples and their knowledge into mainstream natural resources management are investigated. The book has a particularly focus on 'co-management' agreements, and the authors demonstrate that such frameworks perpetuate many of the barriers between scientific and Indigenous ways of thinking. An innovative, alternative example of co-management, the Indigenous Stewardship Model, developed in a North American Native context, is outlined. This model has the potential to transcend some of the usual barriers to equal partnerships in natural resources management
Celtic civilization by Jean Markale( Book )

3 editions published between 1967 and 1975 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cornerstone of western civilization and the major source of its social, political, and literary values, Celtic civilization occupied the whole of western Europe for more than a millenium and, unlike the Middle Eastern forerunners of the Greco-Roman world, is still alive today. Historians have tended to accord the Celts a place of minor significance in comparison to the Romans when, in fact, the shamanic, mythical, and spiritual traditions of the Western world have their roots in Celtic culture. Regarding myth as an indispensable branch of history, Markale has thoroughly explored Celtic mythology to reveal the culture that gave rise to it. "The Celts, " one of the most comprehensive treatments of this subject ever written, firmly aligns the Celtic peoples as the primary European precursor to Greco-Roman sovereignty, restoring Celtic culture to its true importance in the development of European civilization. The new historical vision that emerges is both convincing and exciting
