BOOK EXCERPT:

The pallium was effective because it was a gift with strings attached. This band of white wool encircling the shoulders had been a papal insigne and liturgical vestment since late antiquity. It grew in prominence when the popes began to bestow it regularly on other bishops as a mark of distinction and a sign of their bond to the Roman church. Bonds of Wool analyzes how, through adroit manipulation, this gift came to function as an instrument of papal influence. It explores an abundant array of evidence from diverse genres - including chronicles and letters, saints' lives and canonical collections, polemical treatises and liturgical commentaries, and hundreds of papal privileges - stretching from the eighth century to the thirteenth and representing nearly every region of Western Europe. These sources reveal that the papal conferral of the pallium was an occasion for intervening in local churches throughout the West and a means of examining, approving, and even disciplining key bishops, who were eventually required to request the pallium from Rome.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Keratin fibres, particularly wool fibres, constitute animportant natural raw material in textiles due to their comfort andthermal proprieties. Wool coloration demands an understanding ofthe complex nature of the interplay between wool fibre chemistry,morphology and the coloration processes. The Coloration of Wool and other Keratin Fibres is acomprehensive treatment, written by leading international experts,of the chemistry and chemical processes involved in wool dyeing,printing, preparation and finishing. The book covers: the chemical and physical structure of wool keratin fibres,detailing their complex heterogeneity and the subtle links betweenfibre structure and dyeability the coloration of fabrics containing wool, including a varietyof wool blends such as wool/silk, wool/polyester and wool/cotton,and luxury keratin fibres such as mohair, cashmere and camel the chemistry of the various types of dyes utilised in wooldyeing and in-depth discussions on the physical properties tooptimise these processes practical application of dyes to wool in all its forms, loosestock, combed tops, yarns and piece goods, is covered in thechapter on wool dyeing machinery two chapters, one on bleaching and whitening and one on dyeinghuman hair, provide a valuable extension to the topic of cosmeticchemistry The Coloration of Wool and other Keratin Fibres isessential reading for professionals world-wide working in companiesinvolved in the dyeing and printing of wool, wool blends and otherkeratin fibres and also for the producers of dyes and auxiliarydyeing agents. It is a valuable resource for teachers and studentsof universities and technical institutes, as well as forresearchers who are focusing their investigations on wool, woolblends, human hair or dyes and auxiliaries.

A New History of Ireland is the largest scholarly project in modern Irish history. In 9 volumes, it provides a comprehensive new synthesis of modern scholarship on every aspect of Irish history and prehistory, from the earliest geological and archaeological evidence, through the Middle Ages, down to the present day. The third volume opens with a character study of early modern Ireland and a panoramic survey of Ireland in 1534, followed by twelve chapters of narrative history. There are further chapters on the economy, the coinage, languages and literature, and the Irish abroad. Two surveys, `Land and People', c.1600 and c.1685, are included.
