Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use by visitors and residents alike. Made in the USA.
Human clustering in coastal areas The coastal zone has gained a solid reputation as a place vocated for recreational activities and this is generally related to the presence of the sea. The relationship, however, does not appear univocal or simple: the sea can be perceived as a hostile element by humans and the more general question of whether the presence of the shore is in itself a favourable, repulsive, or irrelevant factor to settlement is a debatable point, at least for pre-industrial societies. Back in the early part of the 19th century, Friedrich Hegel regarded oceans and rivers as unifying elements rather than dividing ones, thus implying a trend towards the concentration of human settlements along them. 'The sea', he wrote, 'stimulates 1 courage and conquest, as well as profit and plunder', although he realized that this did not equally apply to all maritime peoples. In Hegel's view, different approaches to the sea were mainly the results of cultural factors and, in fact, he recognized that some people living in coastal areas perceive the sea as a dangerous and alien place and the shore as aftnis terrae.

The East Syriac Psalm headings reflect the exegesis of the Antiochine school, with the most important stimuli the commentaries of Diodore of Tarsus and Theodore of Mopsuestia. The latter's commentary on the Psalms was translated into Syriac. Abridged versions of that commentary were also compiled. Theodore's exegesis had a profound influence on East Syriac interpretation of the Bible, and especially on the study of the Psalms. The East Syriac headings contain a summary of Theodore's exegesis and this exegesis had an important influence on the work of Syriac interpreters such as Ishodad of Merv and Bar Hebraeus. This edition of the East Syriac Psalm headings describes the history of research on these headings, beginning with the first publications from the nineteenth century, with special attention given to the work of Baethgen, Voste, Devreesse and Bloemendaal. It presents a new critical edition of these headings, using unpublished manuscripts not previously utilised. This includes the headings in the important manuscript 12t4, presently in Baghdad, containing at least four different sets of headings. This edition contains a translation and a detailed discussion of these headings."
