The frequent comments about gossip in the Pastoral Epistles are noteworthy, and it often has gender implications. Insights from the growing field of gossip studies from multiple disciplines help to interpret what role gossip plays, especially in relation to how power and authority are distributed and promoted. A presentation of various texts from antiquity shows that the relation between gossip and gender is multiple and complex: to gossip was typical for all women and risky for elite men who constantly had to defend their masculinity. The ancient gossip discourse helps to understand more of the social dynamics of early Christianity, to fill in the imaginative picture and generate ideas to how Christian identity and theology were constructed.

Moreover, this book explains how to manage, in real time, the processes of attacking enemy organizations or defending friendly ones. By integrating artificial intelligence, game theory, control theory, management science, organizational science, and cognitive modeling, this resource helps professionals rethink the relations between organization, warfare, and information.

For nearly two decades, and particularly since the civil war, Somali men, women - and sometimes even children without family - fled the country in droves. This book represents the first attempt to map the social and cultural contours of the Somali diaspora in a global context. Using case studies from Somali communities in Africa, Europe and North America, the contributors to this volume construct a global framework for studying the Somali diaspora - comparing dispersed Somalis in different cultural, economic, political and racial contexts.

Part of the Ritual Studies Monograph Series Examining the secretive dynamics of competing land claims among the Arosi of the island of Makira (Solomon Islands), Michael W. Scott demonstrates the explanatory power of ethnographic attention to the nexus between practice and indigenous theories of being. His focus on the ways in which Arosi understand their matrilineages to be the bearers of discrete categorical essences exclusively emplaced in ancestral territories forms the basis for a timely and accessible rethink of current anthropological representations of Melanesian sociality and opens up new lines of inquiry into the transformative relationships among gendered metaphors of descent, processes of place making, and the indigenization of Christianity. Informed by original historical research and newly documented variants of regionally important mythic traditions, The Severed Snake is a work of multidisciplinary scope that proposes critical and methodological shifts relevant to historians, development professionals, folklorists, and scholars of religion as well as anthropologists.

How do people perceive the land around them, and how is that perception changed by history? This book explores this question from an anthropological angle, assessing the connections between place, space, identity, nationalism, history and memory in a variety of different settings around the world. Taking historical change and memory as key themes, it is a broad study that will appeal to a readership across the social sciences.Contributors from North America, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Europe explore a wide variety of case studies that includes seascapes in Jamaica; the Solomon Islands; the forests of Madagascar; Aboriginal and European notions of landscape in Australia; place and identity in 19th century maps and the bogs of Ireland; contemporary concerns over changing landscapes in Papua New Guinea; and representations of landscape and history in the poetry of the Scottish Borders.

"Social Discord and Bodily Disorders is a monograph based on two years of field research carried out in collaboration with medical doctors. It explores Yupno conceptions of the link between personal illness and disturbed social relations. Using the sickness and treatment of a small child as a central narrative device, Keck shows how the Yupno chart the onset and course of sickness in relation to imbalances in bodily humors caused by disturbed, burdened social relations. She also compared Yupno ways of diagnosing and treating illness with those of biomedicine - in particular, as these were in evidence in the treatment of the sick child - in order to underscore their specificity and to show how they link to local conceptions of personhood, emotions, and social equilibrium. This book will be of interest for all scholars working in the field of medical anthropology and for a general readership interested in Melanesia and the Pacific."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
