Section 508 Compliant During the last few decades, there has been great interest in the problems of defining the extent and nature of kingship in the Mycenaean world. Questions concerning the degree of economic and religious power held by the king have been given special emphasis. This book surveys the conclusions drawn by individual scholars studying the Linear B tablets, contrasts their theories with our knowledge of the Mycenaean kingdoms as derived from the archaeological record, and finally compares this evidence with possible reflections in the oral tradition, specifically in the Iliad and Odyssey . This approach leads to the suggestion that the king in the Mycenaean period had only limited power over the society and its economy. Although the king appears to have controlled a large segment of the economy, it is argued here that other individuals and family groups within the kingdom also had a certain degree of economic independence.
Large operations constitute a special category, both because it is difficult to

This volume contains selected papers of Lawrence R Klein in economics, econometric theory and applications in modeling, forecasting, macroeconomic analysis, international economics and public policy. Nobel Laureate Lawrence Klein's bibliography spans a half-century, including books, articles, and chapters in conference proceedings, festschriften, and thematic books. One such volume of solely scientific collections, mainly from his relatively early articles, has already been published. The present volume is different, it includes some articles, but largely chapters, or book excerpts that were mostly written since 1980, the approximate cut-off date of the prior volume, and the year of his Nobel Prize. Also, it includes things that were published in very limited or obscure editions. Thus it provides a more complete picture of his scholarly career and his current reflections on the state of economic science. All these writings are in the vanguard of thinking about economics in a global domain. The thirty-five-plus selections are organized in five parts, by major themes. An editorial commentary introduces each part. The introductory chapters include Klein's autobiographical research commentary, and his professional life philosophy. Contents: Introduction to the Series:More on “Forty Years of ‘Rigorous Observational Positivism’” and Years Beyond (K Marwah)An Autobiographical Research Commentary, Continued (L R Klein)My Professional Life Philosophy (L R Klein)Economic Theory ReconsiderationsEconometric Models and MethodologyApplied EconometricsPolicy FormulationClosing ReflectionsIndex Readership: Graduate students, advanced undergraduate students, and researchers in macroeconomic theory & analysis, econometric models, methodology & applications, forecasting, public policy and international economics. keywords:Macroeconomics: Theory, Policy Formation, Reconsiderations;Macroeconometric Models: Methodology, Forecasting, Debate, Prospects;International Economics: Capital Flows, Exchange Rates;Expectations

Thomas H. Olbricht grew up in Churches of Christ, has taught in several of their universities, and has given religious lectures on six continents and in most states in the United States. He has met most leaders in Churches of Christ globally. He has been active in several religious and rhetoric societies and has worked with leaders in all these organizations to bring about changes over the past sixty years. C. Clifton Black and Duane F. Watson wrote about Olbricht, "Tom Olbricht possesses a memory of elephantine proportions. Not only does he have at his fingertips the names and places and dates; better than most he understands how the study of rhetoric has flourished among, while cross-pollinating, multiple disciplines in the humanities, classics, English, speech communication, and religion."

Immigrants from South Asia first began settling in Washington and Oregon in the nineteenth century, but because of restrictions placed on Asian immigration to the United States in the early twentieth century, the vast majority have come to the region since World War II. Roots and Reflections uses oral history to show how South Asian immigrant experiences were shaped by the region and how they differed over time and across generations. It includes the stories of immigrants from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka who arrived from the end of World War II through the 1980s.

In recent years, the number of empirical studies examiningattachment in adolescence has grown considerably, with mostfocusing on individual difference in attachment security. Thisvolume goes a step further in extending knowledge andunderstanding. The physical, cognitive, emotional, and socialchanges that characterize adolescence invite a closer conceptuallook at attachment processes and organization during this period.The chapter authors, leading researchers in attachment inadolescence, address key topics in attachment process inadolescence. These include issues such as the normative distancingfrom parents and the growing importance of peers, the formation ofvaried attachment hierarchies, the changing nature of attachmentdynamics from issues of survival to issues of affect regulation,siblings' similarity in attachment representations, individualdifferences in social information processes in adolescence, andstability and change in attachment representations in a risksample. Together the chapters provide a compelling discussion ofintriguing issues and broaden our understanding of attachment inadolescence and the basic tenets of attachment theory at large. This is the 117th issue of the Jossey Bass quarterly reportseries New Directions for Child and AdolescentDevelopment.
