Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author's own survey work and the latest first-hand information. Although much of the new material affects the Ionian and southeastern Aegean, this new edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide. The redrawn and amended plans and new photographs, many of which have been taken from the air, complement the revisions in the text, refreshing this work which is now in its eleventh edition. The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot's status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece. 'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell's enviable experience of Greek cruising.?' Royal Cruising Club 'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become 'the bible' for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association '... his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it's with justification that they are often referred to as 'the bible'.'

In this book, Thomas F. Tartaron presents a new and original reassessment of the maritime world of the Mycenaean Greeks of the Late Bronze Age. By all accounts a seafaring people, they enjoyed maritime connections with peoples as distant as Egypt and Sicily. These long-distance relations have been celebrated and much studied; by contrast, the vibrant worlds of local maritime interaction and exploitation of the sea have been virtually ignored. Dr Tartaron argues that local maritime networks, in the form of 'coastscapes' and 'small worlds', are far more representative of the true fabric of Mycenaean life. He offers a complete template of conceptual and methodological tools for recovering small worlds and the communities that inhabited them. Combining archaeological, geoarchaeological and anthropological approaches with ancient texts and network theory, he demonstrates the application of this scheme in several case studies. This book presents new perspectives and challenges for all archaeologists with interests in maritime connectivity.

Greece is a source of linguistic and literary tradition that spans millennia and two of its writers have been awarded Nobel Prizes for Literature within the last thirty years. The proverbial crossroads of civilisations, religions and continents, Greece has also nurtured an adventurous, risk-taking, seafaring people who now control the largest merchant fleet in the world. Having become involved in all the major 20th-century European conflicts and having suffered severely from the self-inflicted wounds of a devastating civil war, Greece has emerged as a modern European nation and a full member of international bodies such as the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This fully revised bibliography updates the 1979 edition, and includes entries on the most important publications on Greece in the English language published between 1980 and 1997. It will be of use to the millions of people who visit Greece every year as well as to researchers and librarians.

Eine wichtige Voraussetzung fur das Verstandnis von historischen und kulturellen Prozessen bildet die Untersuchung ihrer naturlichen Umwelt, denn bereits mit dem fruhesten Auftreten des Menschen entsteht ein Beziehungsgefl echt, das eine stringente Trennung von Naturraum und Kulturraum obsolet werden lasst. Der Sammelband zeigt in Fallbeispielen die Moglichkeiten zur Analyse derartiger historischer Mensch-Umwelt-Gefl echte auf. Neben grundsatzlichen methodischen Erwagungen zur Siedlungsarchaologie wird die Rekonstruktion der Umwelt und ihrer Fauna und Flora ebenso behandelt wie dorfl iche Okonomien, Wasserversorgung und Wasserbau. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf Beispielen im ostlichen Mittelmeerbereich, fur die Problematik von Flussveranderungen wird aber auch der Rhein einbezogen. Neben der Geographie, der Palaobotanik und der Archaologie sind so auch die Alte Geschichte und die Altorientalistik in Beitragen vertreten und zeigen damit, auf welch vielfaltige Weise gemeinsame Fragestellungen zum Verhaltnis des Menschen zu seiner Umwelt bearbeitet werden konnen.
