Saving the Holy Sepulchre : how rival Christians came together to rescue their holiest shrine by Raymond Cohen( )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Saving the Holy Sepulchre, Raymond Cohen tells the story of how three major Christian traditions - Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Armenian Orthodox - each with jealously guarded claims to the church, struggled to restore one of the great shrines of civilization. It almost didn't happen. For centuries the communities had lived together in an atmosphere of tension and mistrust based on differences of theology, language, and culture - differences so sharp that fistfights were not uncommon. And the project of restoration became embroiled in interchurch disputes and great power politics. Cohen shows how the repair of the dilapidated basilica was the result of unprecedented cooperation among the three churches. It was tortuous at times - one French monk involved in the restoration exclaimed: "I can't take any more of it. Latins - Armenians - Greeks - it is too much. I am bent over double." But thanks to the dedicated efforts of a cast of kings, popes, patriarchs, governors, monks, and architects, the deadlock was eventually broken on the eve of Pope Paul VI's historic pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1964"--Jacket
Amarna diplomacy : the beginnings of international relations by Raymond Cohen( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1887, a peasant woman stumbled across a 3,000-year-old trove of cuneiform tablets in the ruins at Amarna, in Upper Egypt. The find, mostly letters from foreign kings to the Egyptian court, was part of the palace archive of the mysterious, sun-worshipping Pharaoh Akhenaten. The documents tell an unsuspected tale of intensive diplomatic contacts among the great powers of the time - Egypt, Mittani, Babylonia, Hatti, Assyria, and numerous other independent and vassal states - shedding light on the very origins of international relations. They also reveal treachery and intrigue among the petty kings of Canaan and provide insight into the foundations of biblical Israel." "In William T. Moran's definitive English translation, The Amarna Letters, published by Johns Hopkins in 1992, the texts seem to raise as many questions as they answer. How did Pharaoh run his empire? Why did the god-king consent to deal with his fellow mortal monarchs as equals? Indeed, why did kings engage in diplomacy at all? How did the great powers maintain international peace and order?" "Raymond Cohen and Raymond Westbrook have brought together a team of specialists, both social scientists and ancient historians, to explore the world of ancient Near Eastern statecraft portrayed in the letters. This book will be of interest to scholars not only of the ancient Near East and the Bible but also of international relations and diplomatic studies."--Jacket

Negotiating across cultures : international communication in an interdependent world by Raymond Cohen( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For this substantially revised edition of his 1991 book, Raymond Cohen has added two new chapters, updated previous examples, and added numerous recent ones, especially concerning U.S. trade agreements." "In this revised edition, as in the first, Cohen explores how cultural factors have affected U.S. dealings with Japan, China, Egypt, India, and Mexico. He demonstrates that there are two quite different models of negotiation: "low context." a predominantly verbal and explicit style typical of individualistic societies such as the United States, and "high context," a style associated with nonverbal and implicit communication more typical of traditionally interdependent societies. He concludes the book with ten specific recommendations for the intercultural negotiation."--Jacket
