A concise history of Spain by William D Phillips( Book )

32 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rich cultural and political life of Spain has emerged from its complex history, from the diversity of its peoples, and from continual contact with outside influences. This updated edition traces that history from prehistoric times to the present, focusing particularly on culture, society, politics, and personalities. Written in an engaging style, it introduces readers to key themes that have shaped Spain's history and culture. These include its varied landscapes and climates; the impact of waves of diverse human migrations; the importance of its location as a bridge between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and Europe and Africa; and religion, particularly militant Catholic Christianity and its centuries of conflict with Islam and Protestantism, as well as debates over the place of the church in modern Spain. Illustrations, maps and a guide to further reading, major cultural figures, and places to see make the history of this fascinating country come alive
Slavery in medieval and early modern Iberia by William D Phillips( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enslaved population of medieval Iberia composed only a small percentage of the general populace at any given point, and slave labor was not essential to the regional economy during the period. Yet slaves were present in Iberia from the beginning of recorded history until the early modern era, and the regulations and norms for slavery and servitude shifted as time passed and kingdoms rose and fell. The Romans brought their imperially sanctioned forms of slavery to the Iberian peninsula, and these were adapted by successive Christian kingdoms during the Middle Ages. The Muslim conquest of Iberia introduced new ideas about slavery and effected an increase in slave trade. During the later Middle Ages and the early modern period, slave owners in Christian Spain and Portugal maintained slaves at home, frequently captives taken in wars and sea raids, and exported their slave systems to colonies across the Atlantic. Slavery in Medieval and Early Modern Iberia provides a magisterial survey of the many forms of bound labor in Iberia from ancient times to the decline of slavery in the eighteenth century. William D. Phillips, Jr., examines the pecuniary and legal terms of slavery from purchase to manumission. He pays particular attention to the conditions of life for the enslaved, which, in a religiously diverse society, differed greatly for Muslims and Christians as well as for men and women. This sweeping narrative will become the definitive account of slavery in a place and period that deeply influenced the forms of forced servitude that shaped the New World. -- Publisher

National remotely piloted aircraft system by William D Phillips( Book )

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

The value of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) is being recognized across multiple government sectors. In terms of law enforcement, public safety, and defense the utility of these vehicles is rapidly translating to requirements. Fiscal constraints, however, weigh against establishing separate capabilities and agencies across the federal government, all in pursuit of seemingly distinct, but ultimately similar ends. In the pursuit of these ends, however, any given agency must pay due homage to the traditional notion of privacy and civil liberties in this country while executing "reconnaissance operations" in the domestic environment. This paper will propose the establishment of a centralized federal agency, charged with fulfilling diverse RPA mission sets in support of the domestic security of the United States. It will suggest structure and processes that will allow for servicing law enforcement, defense and other governmental functions through the use of RPA's, while adhering simultaneously to concerns of economy and efficiency. Finally this paper will suggest near term and (if necessary) future safeguards that will allow for these economies and efficiencies without impeding upon the rights of United States persons and citizens
