With this collection, first published in 1975, Heaney located a myth which allowed him to articulate a vision of Ireland--its people, history, and landscape--and which gave his poems direction, cohesion, and cumulative power. In North, the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the north allows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to memories of the Scandinavian and English invasions which have marked Irish history so indelibly.

**Zum Dahinschmelzen, selbst an eisigen Wintertagen** Blumen aus Eis, Wasser, das in der Luft gefriert, und blattlose Bäume – viele Geschichten ranken sich um das ferne Winter, doch die 16-jährige Rae hat es noch nie zu Gesicht bekommen. Wo sie herkommt, sind die Wiesen immer grün, die Ernten immer reich und das Leben sorgenfrei. Erst als Juni, die Sommerprinzessin, spurlos verschwindet und der Verdacht auf ihren Zwillingsbruder Luca fällt, scheint die Kälte sich auch in ihr Leben zu schleichen. Um ihm zu helfen, begibt sich Rae auf die lange Reise in das Königreich von Frost und Kälte und trifft unterwegs auf North, den Jungen mit Augen so kalt wie der Winter selbst. North versteht zwischen den Jahreszeiten zu wandeln wie kein anderer, aber sein Vertrauen zu gewinnen, ist alles andere als einfach… //Textauszug: Ihre straffen Schultern entspannten sich ein wenig und sie lehnte ihren Rücken gegen seine Brust. Seine Körperwärme und das Adrenalin hatten die Kälte aus ihren Gliedern vertrieben. Sie zählte nicht länger seine Herzschläge, aber ihre Finger lagen noch immer um Norths Handgelenk. Fasziniert strich sie seine Handinnenseite hinauf. »Du bist ganz warm«, sagte Rae verwundert. »Was hast du erwartet?« Sie konnte sein Lächeln nicht sehen, aber sie spürte es hinter seinen Worten. »Wintermänner sind nicht aus Eis.«// //Alle Bände der märchenhaften Reihe: -- Winteraugen (North & Rae 1) -- Sommerkälte (North & Rae 2)// Die »North & Rae«-Reihe ist abgeschlossen.

Power is understood to be manifested in a multiplicity of ways: through cosmology, economic control, and formal hierarchy. In the Native societies examined, power is continually created and redefined through individual life stages and through the history of the society. The important issue is autonomy - whether, or to what extent, individuals are autonomous in living their lives. Each author demonstrates that women in a particular cultural area of aboriginal North America had (and have) more power than many previous observers have claimed.

The North-south Divide

The Origins of Northern Consciousness in England

The North-South divide in England is rooted in prehistory and attested throughout recorded time in widely varied sources. This book traces its development from earliest times and provides a corrective to the popular notion that the divide only originated with the Industrial Revolution. A major theme of the study is the development of northern consciousness, and the presence of Scotland across the northern border is seen as an important factor in shaping northern English identity, as well as the attitudes of southern kings and governments to the north. Evidence of the divide is taken from chronicles, administrative sources, travellers' accounts and letters, and literature, from earliest times to around 1760 when the Industrial Revolution brought significant changes. Different placings of the dividing line are accounted for and the author also explores why the sense of difference was emphasized more at some periods than others.

North Africa has been a vital crossroads throughout history, serving as a connection between Africa, Asia, and Europe. Paradoxically, however, the region's historical significance has been chronically underestimated. In a book that may lead scholars to reimagine the concept of Western civilization, incorporating the role North African peoples played in shaping "the West," Phillip Naylor describes a locale whose transcultural heritage serves as a crucial hinge, politically, economically, and socially. Ideal for novices and specialists alike, North Africa begins with an acknowledgment that defining this area has presented challenges throughout history. Naylor's survey encompasses the Paleolithic period and early Egyptian cultures, leading readers through the pharonic dynasties, the conflicts with Rome and Carthage, the rise of Islam, the growth of the Ottoman Empire, European incursions, and the postcolonial prospects for Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Western Sahara. Emphasizing the importance of encounters and interactions among civilizations, North Africa maps a prominent future for scholarship about this pivotal region.
