Egyptology at the Dawn of the Twenty first Century
This comprehensive three-volume set marks the publication of the proceedings of the Eighth International Congress of Egyptologists, held in Cairo in 2000. This massive and impressive 1693-page work encompasses the research of over 350 of the world's leading Egyptologists -- writing in English, French, or German -- and contains over 600 illustrations. A dedicated team of editors, proofreaders, and designers worked hard for three years to bring all the disparate elements of this publication -- including photographs, tables, graphs, hieroglyphs, hieratic script, and Greek, Arabic, Coptic, and Hebrew fonts -- together to create a work that is a benchmark in Egyptological publishing. Organized thematically to reflect the breadth and depth of the material presented at the Congress, these papers provide a survey of current Egyptological research at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The proceedings include the eight 'Millennium Debates' led by esteemed Egyptologists, addressing key issues in the field, as well as nearly every paper presented at the Congress. The 248 papers cover the whole spectrum of Egyptological research, and contain many photographs, maps, and plans, that are published here for the first time. Grouped under the themes of archaeology, history, religion, language, conservation, and museology, these contributions together form the most comprehensive picture of Egyptology today. Contributors include: John Baines, Zahi Hawass, Antonio Loprieno, William J. Murnane, Aly Radwan, Donald Redford, Edna Russmann, Helmut Satzinger, Regine Schulz, W. Kelly Simpson, Hourig Sourouzian, Herman te Velde, Kent Weeks.

This book introduces readers to the concept and implementation of positioning techniques in the context of the wine industry. Featuring 30 case studies on brands and wine regions around the world - all based on the same principles - it presents a successful, cutting-edge strategy for the marketing of wine. Rather than focusing on a small group of elitist appellations, the Grand Crus universe and a handful of star brands, the book addresses the real, day-to-day wine world. In light of globalization, it introduces state-of-the-art wine positioning techniques, with an emphasis on the identity, segmentation and positioning of wine appellations and wine brands. In its analysis of wine appellation models, the book examines local parameters like geology, history and wine growing techniques; compares facts, figures and actors; analyzes the signals that are being sent to the market and presents a range of key factors for success. Similarly, the wine brands models are analyzed on the basis of their respective brand identity and apparent marketing policy. In the book’s final part, it summarizes recent developments in wine marketing, including the growing importance of wine brands as new territories in the global vineyard, and the role of appellations as the essence of cultural diversity.

Parallelement, elle se forme a larcheologie de terrain a Lattes et participe a la mission greco-francaise dItanos (Crete orientale). Dautres chantiers suivent notamment a Eleutherna (Crete centrale), ainsi que, plus brievement, a Philippes (Macedoine orientale). Ses interets la portent sur lhabitat, et, plus encore, sur la ceramique et le materiel metallique, domaines dans lesquels elle a publie plusieurs articles en grec, italien et francais.

Ce livre se fonde sur des depouillements exhaustifs, lexamen personnel dans les musees grecs, francais et anglais de ce materiel, une connaissance approfondie des alliages cuivreux et des techniques utilisees dans leur fabrication, ainsi que sur la lecture minutieuse des sources antiques et byzantines traitant de leclairage. Il fournit surtout le premier essai de typologie concernant les lampes et les luminaires metalliques de lAntique tardive, ouvrant de nouvelles pistes sur leur origine, leur datation et les echanges ou relations dont ils temoignent.
