Can participatory governance really improve the quality of democracy? Concentrating on democracy beyond governmental structures, this Handbook argues that it is a political task to engage individuals at all levels of governance. The Handbook on Participatory Governance reveals that transforming governance arrangements does in fact enhance democracy and that the democratic quality of participatory governance is crucial. The contributors reflect on the notion of democracy and participatory governance and how they relate to each other. Case studies are presented from regional, national and international levels, to identify how governance can be turned into a participatory form. With chapters reviewing participatory governance's role alongside power, science and employment relations, innovative ideas for future progress in participatory governance are presented. Academics and postgraduate students with an interest in governance and public policy will find this Handbook a useful guide for further and future research. Practitioners interested in improving citizen participation will also benefit from the insight into increasing participation at every level of governance.

Every plant has its own distinct spiritual energy or its own deva. Devas are the radiant light of the Universal Divine which permeates all things.Since the earliest times people were aware that all of Nature is divine. Great and wondrous myths were told which explained the presence of divine energy as it exists in thunder, in trees and in sunlight. Some of this lore was the foundation of religions. But the simpler stories such as those of a plant's energy explored day-to-day matters like health and love. This understanding of the world has been preserved in folklore through poems, chants, ditties and spells.From researching the history of folklore from cultures around the world, patterns emerge which enable us to approach the true nature of plants' devas. This compendium presents the lore and the corresponding usage for 330 magickal herbes. Great care was taken only to include folklore that was documented as being authentic.You will meet many new herbes in this text and explore fascinating magickal and religi uses. But most of all we hope you come to respect the divine that surrounds your everyday life.

This is the eighth volume of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names to be published, a work which offers comprehensive documentation of named individuals in the Greek-speaking world in the period from c. 700 BC to 600 AD, drawn from all sources (predominantly written in Greek and to a lesser extent in Latin). It is the third of three volumes that comprise the personal names attested in Asia Minor: this particular volume is concerned with its interior, incorporating the ancient regions of Phrygia, the Kibyratis/Kabalis, Milyas, Pisidia, Galatia, Lykaonia, Isauria, Kappadokia, Paphlagonia, Pontos, and Armenia Minor. In contrast to its coastal regions, inland Asia Minor was untouched by Greek settlement until after the conquests of Alexander the Great, and Greeks and Romans were but two comparatively late entrants into this multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, and multi-cultural world. Comparatively little of the documentation predates the period of the Roman Empire but the surviving sources document a large number of non-Greek names originating in the languages of the indigenous peoples, which are of particular interest. Some of them are descended from the Hittite-Luwian languages spoken in Anatolia in the second and early first millennia BC, while others reveal the influence of a foreign ruling class, whether the Persians in Kappadokia or the Celts who settled in what became known as Galatia in the third century BC. This volume provides the raw material that allows us to see how Greek and, later, Italian names entered into the name stock of these indigenous peoples, and also the varying resilience of native naming practices from one region to another as one aspect of those processes of acculturation labelled as 'hellenization' and 'Romanization'. It documents more than 42,500 individuals bearing in excess of 7,300 different names and includes a detailed Introduction which addresses the definition of each of the regions and their cultural identity, guides the user through some of the problems of geography and language, and provides detailed statistics that point to interesting regional patterns.
The discovery of cheese is a narrative at least 8,000 years old, dating back to the Neolithic era. Yet, after all of these thousands of years we are still finding new ways to combine the same four basic ingredients - milk, bacteria, salt, and enzymes - into new and exciting products with vastly different shapes, sizes, and colors, and equally complex and varied tastes, textures, and, yes, aromas. In fact, after a long period of industrialized, processed, and standardized cheese, cheesemakers, cheesemongers, affineurs, and most of all consumers are rediscovering the endless variety of cheeses across cultures. The Oxford Companion to Cheese is the first major reference work dedicated to cheese, containing 855 A-Z entries on cheese history, culture, science, and production. From cottage cheese to Camembert, from Gorgonzola to Gruyere, there are entries on all of the major cheese varieties globally, but also many cheeses that are not well known outside of their region of production. The concentrated whey cheeses popular in Norway, brunost, are covered here, as are the traditional Turkish and Iranian cheeses that are ripened in casings prepared from sheep's or goat's skin. There are entries on animal species whose milk is commonly (cow, goat, sheep) and not so commonly (think yak, camel, and reindeer) used in cheesemaking, as well as entries on a few highly important breeds within each species, such as the Nubian goat or the Holstein cow. Regional entries on places with a strong history of cheese production, biographies of influential cheesemakers, innovative and influential cheese shops, and historical entries on topics like manorial cheesemaking and cheese in children's literature round out the Companion's eclectic cultural coverage. The Companion also reflects a fascination with the microbiology and chemistry of cheese, featuring entries on bacteria, molds, yeasts, cultures, and coagulants used in cheesemaking and cheese maturing. The blooms, veins, sticky surfaces, gooey interiors, crystals, wrinkles, strings, and yes, for some, the odors of cheese are all due to microbial action and growth. And today we have unprecedented insight into the microbial complexity of cheese, thanks to advances in molecular biology, whole-genome sequencing technologies, and microbiome research. The Companion is equally interested in the applied elements of cheesemaking, with entries on production methodologies and the technology and equipment used in cheesemaking. An astonishing 325 authors contributed entries to the Companion, residing in 35 countries. These experts included cheesemakers, cheesemongers, dairy scientists, anthropologists, food historians, journalists, archaeologists, and on, from backgrounds as diverse as the topics they write about. Every entry is signed by the author, and includes both cross references to related topics and further reading suggestions. The endmatter includes a list of cheese-related museums and a thorough index. Three 8-page colour inserts and well over a hundred black and white images help bring the entries to life. This landmark encyclopedia is the most wide-ranging, comprehensive, and reliable reference work on cheese available, suitable for both novices and industry insiders alike.

This comprehensive Handbook showcases the burgeoning and cutting edge research that has come to constitute the study of gender and International Political Economy (IPE). It surveys the diversity of contemporary feminist IPE research, exploring a range of different theoretical and methodological traditions and reviewing the broad empirical scope of this research. The Handbook also critically interrogates the intersections and points of tension between the different disciplines that have inspired contemporary approaches. Expert contributors offer insights into how to the categories of 'masculine' and 'feminine' have been established and maintained globally, while also documenting and challenging the privileging of the former over the latter in different sites and spaces. They further show how gender power relations are shaped by race, nationality, sexuality, class, and more. The Handbook explores and demonstrates how gender operates as a relation of social power in the global political economy. The Handbook on the International Political Economy of Gender will appeal to undergraduate and post-graduate students of politics and international relations, security studies, development studies, economics, and gender and queer studies, as well as policymakers and practitioners interested in issues of global (in)equality and development.
Events such as the global financial crisis have helped reveal that the drivers and contours of governance on a national and international level remain a mystery in many respects. This is so despite the ever-increasing complexity and sophistication in the management and understanding of economic, legal and political spheres of global society.

Sydney J. Freedberg presents an interpretive analysis and a full Catalogue Raisonne of Andrea del Sarto's achievement. The interpretive work includes an account of Andrea's career as a painter, illustrations of all his authentic paintings and many of his drawings, a brief biography, and a selective bibliography. The painter's style and its place in the history of Italian painting are discussed in detail. The author questions current concepts of a sudden "triumph of Mannerism" in Florence after 1520 and presents a more balanced interpretation of this era. The Catalogue Raisonne includes a complete critical catalogue of Andrea's paintings and drawings, an inventory of lost works, and a full account of paintings and drawings attributed to the artist. Documentary information on Andrea's life and the details of dating and attribution which are the basis for the interpretive text are also included. The illustrations in this volume supplement those in the interpretive work and will be of particular interest to scholars and art historians.
