Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Yolana Pringle

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, includ...

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

Ancient chariots of the Sahara (The forgotten civilisations of Africa)

by Taklit Mebarek

The war chariot pulled by horses is one of the most prestigious inventions ever. It is common to think that any invention in the Ancient Times, any form of civilization can only come from the East. It is the same for the invention of the chariot.

But what is the reality?

The war chariot drawn by horses was introduced in East and Ancient Egypt, around 1900 before Christ, by invaders that had swept the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Babylonia, Palestine, Syria and in Egypt. Then these invaders settled and created new civilizations in the East and in Egypt.

Who are they and where do they come from?

For the Egyptologists, these invaders who destabilized the pharaonic power in Egypt are Palestinians. However, Palestine is itself destroy...

Shaping Natural History and Settler Society: Mary Elizabeth Barber and the Nineteenth-Century Cape (Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series)

by Tanja Hammel

This book explores the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Barber, a British-born settler scientist who lived in the Cape during the nineteenth century. It provides a lens into a range of subjects within the history of knowledge and science, gender and social history, postcolonial, critical heritage and archival studies. The book examines the international importance of the life and works of a marginalized scientist, the instrumentalisation of science to settlers' political concerns and reveals the pivotal but largely silenced contribution of indigenous African experts. Including a variety of material, visual and textual sources, this study explores how these artefacts are archived and displayed in museums and critically analyses their content and silences. The book traces Barber’s legacy ac...

Egyptian Mythology: A Fascinating Guide to Understanding the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and Mortals (Greek Mythology - Norse Mythology - Egyptian Mythology Book 3)

by Matt Clayton

Enjoy Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and MortalsFrom what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedroc...

We are all the Same Species: A Former Rwandan Refugee's Observations and Reflections on the Survival of Mankind.

by John N G Muyenzi

In his book, WE ARE ALL THE SAME SPECIES, John N G Muyenzi expresses his concern that humanity, in general, seems to have learned little, if anything at all, from the horrors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in his country Rwanda. Illustrating his point of view from incidents and personal experiences (ranging from the amusing to the sad, poignant and even tragic) gathered during a life, first as a young boy living in colonial Rwanda, then as a refugee in Uganda and Kenya and finally back in Rwanda after the genocide against the Tutsi, John paints a picture of a human species in danger of self-destruction. He argues that the most likely cause of the demise of our species is war in spite of the stark frightening precedents of two devastating world wars and numerous other murderous arme...

The Term Democracy throughout the Islamic History

by Fatima Al-Barwari

The long-lasting swell of the „Arab Spring“ [arab. al-Rabīʻ al-ʻArabī], a Nations Movement which has extended from its Birthplace in Tunisia to the Arabian Peninsula and beyond, was at its core a national call for social and political change and security, fairness and equality under a noncorrupted rule of law. Most importantly it was a „Bread Revolution“ [arab. thawrat al-ʻaysh], reflecting the radical hardships of affording nourishments the people have been facing daily.For similar demands, the people of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Algeria aroused and infected States such as Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain. Through my researches I was aiming to discover the realism behind some voices chanting for Democracy during the revolutionary „Arab Spring“ uprisings all over the Middle East a...

Christianity, Islam, and Orisa-Religion: Three Traditions in Comparison and Interaction (The Anthropology of Christianity Book 18)

by J.D.Y. Peel

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous orisa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres we...
