La Mésopotamie antique fait l’objet de passionnantes découvertes depuis le xixe siècle. Berceau de notre civilisation, elle a vu naître l’écriture vers la fin du IVe millénaire av. J.-C. Les centaines de milliers de textes qui nous sont parvenus de ces époques lointaines, alliés aux témoignages archéologiques, nous font connaître un monde enchanté où tout, à divers degrés, est sacré. Chaque activité humaine implique l’intervention d’un dieu. Dans ce contexte, les temples consacrés aux divinités ont de quoi nous surprendre. Loin d’être simplement des lieux de culte, où le clergé prenait soin des divinités présentes dans des statues, ils étaient le cadre d’activités de la vie quotidienne : les temples de Shamash, dieu de la justice, fonctionnaient comme des tribunaux ; ceux de Gula, déesse de la santé, comme des centres de cure ; ceux de Nabu, dieu de l’écriture, comme des bibliothèques ; ceux d’Ishtar, déesse de l’amour, comme des maisons de plaisir. En un mot, retracer la vie méconnue de ces temples, c’est tenter de recouvrer celle de ces hommes d’un autre temps. Tel est l’objet de ce livre issu de l’enseignement de Dominique Charpin au Collège de France.

How does intentionally inflicting damage to material objects mediate the human experience in the prehistoric eastern Mediterranean? For all of the diversity in cultural practice in the civilisations of the Greek mainland and Aegean islands, Crete, Cyprus and the eastern coast of Italy between 4000-750 BC, archaeologists consider the custom of ritually killing objects as a normative, if inconsistent practice. Yet as artefacts that are alike only in that they have been disarticulated, intentionally destroyed objects defy easy characterization. Such pieces frequently stand outside of clearly defined patterns. This volume is an initial step in addressing a gap in the scholarship by aiming to deconstruct and contextualize the practice of intentional fragmentation. The case studies in this volume present a diverse range of evidence, including pottery, lithics, metals, jewellery, figurines, buildings and human remains, in an exploration of the wide spectrum of meanings behind material destruction.

Infection Control In The Intensive Care Unit

Intensive care is a rapidly changing area of medicine, and after four years from the 2nd edition the volume editors and authors have deemed necessary to update it. In the recent years, in fact, five new randomised controlled trials and five new meta-analyses demonstrate that selective decontamination of the digestive tract [SDD] is an antimicrobial prophylaxis to prevent severe infections of not only lower airways but also of blood. Additionally, SDD has been shown to reduce inflammation including multiple organ failure and mortality. An intriguing observation is the evidence that SDD using parenteral and enteral antimicrobials reduces rather than increases antimicrobial resistance. Moreover, a new chapter on microcirculation had been added. The volume will be an invaluable tool for all those requiring in depth knowledge in the ever expanding field of infection control.

This book uses insights from religious studies, literary theory, and the history of science for understanding the Sumerian composition "Nanse and the Birds" in the context of the Old Babylonian scribal school. The discussions of Babylonian religion, literature, and scholarship focus on the usefulness and relevance of these modern concepts for categorizing the ancient text. The volume presents the first critical edition of "Nanse and the Birds," as well as editions of the hymn Nanse B and all third millennium and Old Babylonian lexical lists of birds. It includes 37 plates with photographs and line drawings, including many previously unpublished tablets. The final chapter discusses the identity and orthography of all Sumerian bird names in literary, administrative and lexical texts.

Current popular interest in bodies, fitness, sport and active lifestyles, has made bodybuilding more visible and acceptable within mainstream society than ever before. However, the association between bodybuilding, drugs and risk has contributed to a negative image of an activity which many people find puzzling. Using data obtained from participant observation and interviews, this book explores bodybuilding subculture from the perspective of the bodybuilder. It looks at: * How bodybuilders try to maintain competent social identities * How they manage the risks of using steroids and other physique-enhancing drugs * How they understand the alleged steroid-violence link * How they 'see' the muscular body. Through systematic exploration it becomes apparent that previous attempts to explain bodybuilding in terms of 'masculinity-in-crisis' or gender insecurity are open to question. Different and valuable insights into what sustains and legitimizes potentially dangerous drug-taking activities are provided by this detailed picture of a huge underground subculture.
