"In 1922, Howard Carter peered into Tutankhamun's tomb for the first time, the only light coming from the candle in his outstretched hand. Urged to tell what he was seeing through the small opening he had cut in the door to the tomb, the Egyptologist famously replied, 'I see wonderful things.' Carter's fabulous discovery is just one of the many spellbinding stories told in Three Stones Make a Wall. Written by Eric Cline, an archaeologist with more than thirty seasons of excavation experience, Three Stones Make a Wall traces the history of archaeology from an amateur pursuit to the cutting-edge science it is today by taking the reader on a tour of major archaeological sites and discoveries, from Pompeii to Petra, Troy to the Terracotta Warriors, and Mycenae to Megiddo and Masada. Cline brings to life the personalities behind these digs, including Heinrich Schliemann, the former businessman who excavated Troy, and Mary Leakey, whose discoveries advanced our understanding of human origins. The discovery of the peoples and civilizations of the past is presented in vivid detail, from the Hittites and Minoans to the Inca, Aztec, and Moche. Along the way, the book addresses the questions archaeologists are asked most often: How do you know where to dig? How are excavations actually done? How do you know how old something is? Who gets to keep what is found? Taking readers from the pioneering digs of the eighteenth century to the exciting new discoveries being made today, Three Stones Make a Wall is a lively and essential introduction to the story of archaeology"--

Secrets we kept : three women of Trinidad
Sital, Krystal A., author
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2018]
Trinity -- Beginning -- Arya: 1972-1986. Witness -- Betrayal -- Beaten -- Exams -- Wooing -- Propose -- House -- Accident -- Interim -- Tradition -- Foundation -- Blows -- My grandfather: 2006-2008. Legacy -- Bond -- Unsettling -- Glint -- Rebecca: 1954-1980. Coffee -- Dougla -- Days -- Look -- My mother: 1997-2007. Cheated -- Realm -- Letters -- Crushed -- Weighted: 2007-2010. Memories -- Funeral -- Eulogy -- Epilogue.

"There, in a lush landscape of fire-petaled immortelle trees and vast plantations of coffee and cocoa, where the three hills along the southern coast act as guardians against hurricanes, Krystal A. Sital grew up idolizing her grandfather, a wealthy Hindu landowner. Years later, to escape crime and economic stagnation on the island, the family resettled in New Jersey, where Krystal's mother works as a nanny, and the warmth of Trinidad seems a pretty yet distant memory. But when her grandfather lapses into a coma after a fall at home, the women he has terrorized for decades begin to speak, and a brutal past comes to light. In the lyrical patois of her mother and grandmother, Krystal learns the long-held secrets of their family's past, and what it took for her foremothers to survive and find strength in themselves. The relief of sharing their stories draws the three women closer, the music of their voices and care for one another easing the pain of memory. Violence, a rigid ethnic and racial caste system, and a tolerance of domestic abuse--the harsh legacies of plantation slavery--permeate the history of Trinidad. On the island's plantations, in its growing cities, and in the family's new home in America, Secrets We Kept tells a story of ambition and cruelty, endurance and love, and most of all, the bonds among women and between generations that help them find peace with the past.

Foucault's Orient : the conundrum of cultural difference, from Tunisia to Japan
Lazreg, Marnia, author
New York : Berghahn Books, 2017
The Chinese Encyclopedia and the Challenge of Difference -- Madness and Cultural Difference -- Foucault and Kant's Cosmopolitan Anthropology -- Foucault's Negative Anthropology -- Foucault's Anthropology of the Iranian Revolution -- The Heterotopia of Tunisia -- The Enigma of Japan -- Japan and Foucault's Anthropological Bind -- Epilogue.

Foucault lived for two years in Tunisia and travelled to Japan and Iran more than once. Yet throughout his critical scholarship, he insisted that the cultures of the Orient and the Occident constitute the "limit" of Western rationality. Using interviews with scholars familiar with him from Tunisia and Japan, the book examines the manner in which Foucault experienced and explained his encounters with non-Western cultures.
