Colorado encyclopedia( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Colorado Encyclopedia, is a twenty-first-century reference work on the Centennial State. From the start, a few principles have governed the development of the Encyclopedia: its entries and essays had to be authoritative but also accessible to a wide audience, and it had to be an online publication in order to remain up-to-date and reach as many people as possible. To ensure the Encyclopedia is relevant to students and educators in the state's school system, it includes entries and essays leveled for 4th, 8th-, and 10th-grade students and curricular materials such as primary sources and Annotated Resource Sets. Finally, the Encyclopedia includes information for scholars and researchers interested in an in-depth understanding of the state's development
A prehistory of South America : ancient cultural diversity on the least known continent by Jerry D Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A Prehistory of South America is an overview of the ancient and historic native cultures of the entire continent of South America based on the most recent archaeological investigations. For more than 12,000 years, South American cultures ranged from mobile hunters and gatherers to rulers and residents of colossal cities. In the process, native South American societies made advancements in agriculture and economic systems and created great works of art--in pottery, textiles, precious metals and stone--that still awe the modern eye. Organized in broad chronological periods, A Prehistory of South America explores these diverse human achievements, emphasizing the many adaptations of peoples from a continent-wide perspective. Moore examines the archaeologies of societies across South America, from the arid deserts of the Pacific coast and the frigid Andean highlands to the humid lowlands of the Amazon Basin and the fjords of Patagonia and beyond. Illustrated in full color, accessible to undergraduate and beginning graduate students, and suitable for an educated general reader interested in the Precolumbian peoples of South America, A Prehistory of South America is a long-overdue addition to the literature"--

The anthropological study of class and consciousness by E. Paul Durrenberger( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presenting prehistoric, historic, and ethnographic data from Mongolia, China, Iceland, Mexico, Brazil, and the United States, this book offers a first step toward examining class as a central issue within anthropology. Contributors to this volume use the methods of historical materialism, cultural ecology, and political ecology to understand the realities of class and how they evolve. Five central ideas unify the collection: the objective basis for class in different social orders; people's understanding of class in relation to race and gender; the relation of ideologies of class to realities of class; the U.S. managerial middle-class denial of class and emphasis on meritocracy in relation to increasing economic insecurity; and, personal responses to economic insecurity and their political implications. Anthropologists who want to understand the nature and dynamics of culture must also understand the nature and dynamics of class. "The Anthropological Study of Class and Consciousness" addresses the role of the concept of class as an analytical construct in anthropology and how it relates to culture. Although issues of social hierarchy have been studied in anthropology, class has not often been considered as a central element. Yet a better understanding of its role in shaping culture, consciousness, and people's awareness of their social and natural world would in turn lead to better understanding of major trends in social evolution as well as contemporary society. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of anthropology, labour studies, ethnohistory and sociology

Re-creating primordial time : foundation rituals and mythology in the postclassic Maya codices by Gabrielle Vail( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Re-Creating Primordial Time offers a new perspective on the Maya codices, documenting the extensive use of creation mythology and foundational rituals in the hieroglyphic texts and iconography of these important manuscripts. Focusing on both pre-Columbian codices and early colonial creation accounts, Vail and Hernandez show that in spite of significant cultural change during the Postclassic and Colonial periods, the mythological traditions reveal significant continuity, beginning as far back as the Classic period. Remarkable similarities exist within the Maya tradition, even as new mythologies were introduced through contact with the Gulf Coast region and highland central Mexico. Vail and Hernandez analyze the extant Maya codices within the context of later literary sources such as the Books of Chilam Balam, the Popol Vuh, and the Codice Chimalpopoca to present numerous examples highlighting the relationship among creation mythology, rituals, and lore. Compiling and comparing Maya creation mythology with that of the Borgia codices from highland central Mexico, Re-Creating Primordial Time is a significant contribution to the field of Mesoamerican studies and will be of interest to scholars of archaeology, linguistics, epigraphy, and comparative religions alike."--

Soils, climate and society : archaeological investigations in ancient America by John Davis Wingard( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Much recent archaeological research focuses on social forces as the impetus for cultural change. Soils, Climate, and Society, however, focuses on the complex relationship between human populations and the physical environment, particularly the land--the foundation of agricultural production and, by extension, of agricultural peoples. This volume traces the sociocultural implications of agriculture, agriculture's effects on population, and the theory of carrying capacity, considering the relation of agriculture to the profound social changes that it wrought in the New World. Soil science plays a significant, though varied, role in each case study and is the common component of each analysis. Contributors use information derived from dendrochronology, ground-penetrating radar, soil chemistry, and meteorological records, along with a variety of analytical techniques and computer simulations to determine the amount of food that can be produced in a particular soil and the effects of occupation and cultivation on that soil. They also consider the resulting consequences for future cultivators. Soils, Climate, and Society demonstrates that renewed investigation of agricultural production and demography can answer questions about the past, as well as stimulate further research. It will be of interest to scholars of archaeology, historical ecology and geography, and agricultural history"--

Hayden's landscapes revisited : the drawings of the Great Colorado Survey by Thomas Patrick Huber( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is about Colorado’s landscapes—the landscapes of the nineteenth century as experienced by the explorers/discoverers of one of the great surveys of the West, that of Ferdinand Vandeveer Hayden and the landscapes of today as experienced by those who live in and visit the highest state. Landscapes have a context in which they reside and are experienced; they have a language that can be read more naturally than a book. The dialogues that Hayden and his survey participated in with their landscapes and the ones that take place today consist of or can be read only through some specific vocabulary and understanding that vocabulary requires some comprehensive knowledge. Hayden collected the best scientists available to provide the knowledge he needed to read and survey the lands of Colorado
