In this exciting book Michel Maffesoli argues that the conventional approaches to understanding solidarity and society are deeply flawed. He contends that mass culture has disintegrated and that today social existence is conducted through fragmented tribal groupings, organized around the catchwords, brand-names and sound-bites of consumer culture. The book provides a rich backcloth against which to consider the rise of `identity politics' and the `proliferation of lifestyle cultures'.

The emergence of Islam has in recent years become a matter of heated debate, mainly because Islamic historiography is a battle-field of contradictory versions of the past. In this second collection of studies, several of which appear here for the first time, Michael Lecker distances himself from the clash of theories, concentrating instead on several basic issues. They all belong to the preparatory work that still remains to be done on the social and economic environment in which Islam emerged. The volume includes the following sections: Arabia on the Eve of Islam; Muhammad and his Companions; and Arabian Tribes in Pre- and Early Islamic Arabia. The third section includes much extended and fully-documented versions of nine Encyclopaedia of Islam articles dealing with Arabian tribes and tribal society.

France held dominion over much of North America when Nicolas Perrot, a Jesuit, entered the fur trade among the Ottawa Indians in 1665. He became well acquainted with the Algonquian tribes of the upper Mississippi valley and Great Lakes region. Perrot’s Memoir on the Manners, Customs, and Religion of the Savages of North America, written in French from about 1680 to 1718, is an invaluable record of early aboriginal life. First published in 1864, it can be found in The Indian Tribes of the Upper Mississippi Valley and the Region of the Great Lakes. Also included is the History of the Savage Peoples Who Are Allies of New France by Claude Charles Le Roy, Sieur de Bacqueville de la Potherie. First published in 1716, it portrays the Indian tribes west of Lake Huron and contains much first-hand information about their customs, history, and relations with each other and the French. Finally, documents by Major Morrell Marston and Thomas Forsyth, commander and agent, respectively, at Fort Armstrong in present-day Illinois, provide richly detailed accounts on the Sauk and Fox tribes in the 1820s. This Bison Books edition is the first in more than eighty years to make widely available The Indian Tribes of the Upper Mississippi Valley and Region of the Great Lakes, which was originally published in two volumes in 1812. It retains the text and feature of the original two volumes. Emma Helen Blair, a respected scholar, died in 1911, before her monumental work was released.

More than two centuries ago, President Thomas Jefferson sent a hardy band of explorers on an unparalleled voyage of discovery across uncharted America. Members of the Lewis and Clark expedition were the first U.S. citizens to cross the Continental Divide, the first to reach the Pacific by land, the first to map the landscape that would someday become central to the nation's identity. They also were the last to describe the West before it underwent radical change at the hands of traders, trappers, soldiers and settlers. As the 2003-2006 bicentennial of the expedition approached, veteran journalist John Krist set out to retrace the explorers' path, hoping to answer a few deceptively simple questions. What is it like on the trail today? What was it like 200 years ago? What can we learn about the West, and about the nation itself, by examining it through the unique lens of the explorers' journals and letters? Voyage of Rediscovery interweaves tales from the trail with analysis of some of the most compelling environmental issues facing the region. Mixing adventure, history, science and sorrow, it paints an evocative portrait of the modern American West and the people who call it home.
