‎KNAB TIMOTHY J‎

‎Dialogue Of Earth And Sky: Dreams Souls Curing And The Modern Aztec Underworld‎

‎University of Arizona Press Tucson . Softcover. Brand new book. In Mexico's Sierra Norte de Puebla beliefs that were held before the coming of Europeans continue to guide the lives of modern Aztecs. For residents of San Mart’n Zinacapan life in and on the earth is animated by the same forces through which people seek to maintain a cohesive view of the relationship of mankind the cosmos and the natural world. This delicate balance of the human spirit maintains the health and well-being of villagers and is an essential part of the social and ideological framework that makes a person's life whole. This book describes the basic elements of a belief system that has survived the onslaught of Catholicism colonialism and the modern world. Timothy Knab has spent thirty years working in this area of Mexico learning of the Most Holy Earth and following what its people there call "the good path." He was initiated as a dreamer learned the prayers and techniques for curing maladies of the human soul and from his long association with the Sanmartinos has constructed a thorough account of their beliefs and practices. Learning to recount dreams forming a dreamtale and "carrying it on one's back" to the waking world is the first part of the practitioner's labor in curing. But dreamtales are shown to be more than parables in this world for they embody the ethos and cosmovision that link Sanmartinos with their traditions and the Most Holy Earth. Building on this background Knab describes how the open-ended interpretation of dreams is the practitioner's primary instrument for restoring a client's soul to its proper equilibrium thus providing a practical approach to finding and resolving everyday problems. Many anthropologists hold that such beliefs have long since disappeared into the nebulous past but in San Mart’n they remain alive and well. The underworld of the ancestors talocan or Tlalocan for the Aztecs is still a vital part of everyday life for the people of the Sierra Norte de Puebla. The Dialogue of Earth and Sky is an important record of a culture that has maintained a precolumbian cosmovision for nearly 500 years revealing that this system is as resonant today with the ethos of Mesoamerican peoples as it was for their ancestors.

‎Knorozov alternatively Knorosov Yuriy Valentinovich 1922 1999‎

‎Comendio Xcaret de la escritura jeroglifica maya descifrada‎

‎3 volumes. 246 pages with diagrams tables and bibliography; 10 pages with photographic reproductions of the Codice Dresde 37 pages Codex Madrid 56 pages; Codice Paris 12 pages; 279 pages. Quarto 11" x 6 1/2" bound in brown with gilt lettering to spine and cover and housed in a slipcase. Prepared by Patricia Rodriguez Ochoa Edgar Gomez Marin and Myriam Cerda Gonzalez. First edition.Yuriy Valentinovich Knorozov was a Russian linguist epigrapher and ethnographer who is particularly renowned for the pivotal role his research played in the decipherment of the Maya script the writing system used by the pre-Columbian Maya civilization of Mesoamerica. In 1952 Knorozov published a paper which was later to prove to be a seminal work in the field Drevnyaya pismennost Tsentralnoy Ameriki or Ancient Writing of Mesoamerica. The general thesis of this paper put forward the observation that early scripts such as ancient Egyptian and Cuneiform which were generally or formerly thought to be predominantly logo-graphic or even purely ideographic in nature in fact contained a significant phonetic component. That is to say rather than the symbols representing only or mainly whole words or concepts many symbols in fact represented the sound elements of the language in which they were written and had alphabetic or syllabic elements as well which if understood could further their decipherment. By this time this was largely known and accepted for several of these such as Egyptian hieroglyphs the decipherment of which was famously commenced by Jean-Franois Champollion in 1822 using the tri-lingual Rosetta Stone artifact; however the prevailing view was that Mayan did not have such features. Knorozov's studies in comparative linguistics drew him to the conclusion that the Mayan script should be no different from the others and that purely logo-graphic or ideographic scripts did not exist. Knorozov's key insight was to treat the Maya glyphs represented in de Landa's alphabet not as an alphabet but rather as a syllabary. He was perhaps not the first to propose a syllabic basis for the script but his arguments and evidence were the most compelling to date. He maintained that when de Landa had commanded of his informant to write the equivalent of the Spanish letter "b" for example the Maya scribe actually produced the glyph which corresponded to the syllable /be/ as spoken by de Landa. Knorozov did not actually put forward many new transcriptions based on his analysis nevertheless he maintained that this approach was the key to understanding the script. In effect the de Landa "alphabet" was to become almost the "Rosetta stone" of Mayan decipherment. A further critical principle put forward by Knorozov was that of synharmony. According to this Mayan words or syllables which had the form consonant-vowel-consonant CVC were often to be represented by two glyphs each representing a CV-syllable i.e. CV-CV. In the reading the vowel of the second was meant to be ignored leaving the reading CVC as intended. The principle also stated that when choosing the second CV glyph it would be one with an echo vowel that matched the vowel of the first glyph syllable. Later analysis has proved this to be largely correct. Knorozov further improved his decipherment technique in his 1963 monograph The Writing of the Maya Indians and published translations of Mayan manuscripts in his 1975 work Maya Hieroglyphic Manuscripts. During the 1960s other Mayanists and researchers began to expand upon Knorozov's ideas. Their further field-work and examination of the extant inscriptions began to indicate that actual Maya history was recorded in the stelae inscriptions and not just calendric and astronomical information. The Russian-born but American-resident scholar Tatiana Proskouriakoff was foremost in this work eventually convincing Thompson and other doubters that historical events were recorded in the script. Other early supporters of the phonetic approach championed by Knorozov included Michael D. Coe and David Kelley and whilst initially they were in a clear minority more and more supporters came to this view as further evidence and research progressed. Through the rest of the decade and into the next Proskouriakoff and others continued to develop the theme and using Knorozov's results and other approaches began to piece together some decipherments of the script. A major breakthrough came during the first round table or Mesa Redonda conference at the Maya site of Palenque in 1973 when using the syllabic approach those present mostly deciphered what turned out to be a list of former rulers of that particular Maya city-state. Subsequent decades saw many further such advances to the point now where quite a significant portion of the surviving inscriptions can be read. Most Mayanists and accounts of the decipherment history apportion much of the credit to the impetus and insight provided by Knorozov's contributions to a man who had not as yet set foot outside of his native Russia but had still been able to make important contributions to the understanding of this distant ancient civilization.Corners bumped edge wear to slipcase else a very good set.

‎KONEFAL BETSY‎

‎For Every Indio Who Falls: A History Of Maya Activism In Guatemala 1960 1990‎

‎University of New Mexico Press Albuquerque. Softcover. Brand new book. In 1978 a Maya community queen stood on a stage to protest a massacre of indigenous campesinos at the hands of the Guatemalan state. She spoke graphically to the dead and to the living alike: "Brothers of Panz—s your blood is in our throats!" Given the context her message might come as a surprise. A revolutionary insurgency in the late 1970s was being met by brutal state efforts to defeat it efforts directed not only at the guerrilla armies but also at reform movements of all kinds. Yet the young woman was just one of many Mayas across the highlands voicing demands for change. Over the course of the 1970s Mayas argued for economic cultural and political justice for the indigenous "pueblo." Many became radicalized by state violence against Maya communities that soon reached the level of genocide. Scholars have disagreed about Maya participation in Guatemala's civil war and the development of oppositional activism by Mayas during the war is poorly understood. Betsy Konefal explores this history in detail examining the roots and diversity of Maya organizing and its place in the unfolding conflict. She traces debates about ethnicity class and revolution and examines how some Mayas became involved in opposition to a repressive state. She looks closely at the development of connections between cultural events like queen pageants and more radical demands for change and follows the uneasy relationships that developed between Maya revolutionaries and their Ladino counterparts. Konefal makes it clear that activist Mayas were not bystanders in the transformations that preceded and accompanied Guatemala's civil war--activism by Mayas helped shape the war and the war shaped Maya activism. 6 x 9 inches 264 pages 21 halftones 1 map Betsy Konefal is associate professor of history at the College of William & Mary. "Konefal presents a dramatic complex and harrowing story of contemporary conflict and genocide in which the Maya were too often used as pawns or victims seen as a unit rather than as individuals." -- Book News Inc. "An important highly readable addition to recent scholarship. Essential." -- Choice University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque paperback‎
