The Evolution of the Gilgamesh Epic
Author: Jeffrey H. Tigay

The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of the world's oldest known epics—it predates Homer by several centuries and is recognized as seminal to the cultural history of the Ancient Near East. Interpretation and decipherment of the story of Gilgamesh—fragmentary and contradictory as its several variants are—has been a monumental scholarly task, spanning more than a century . . . until Jeffrey Tigay teased out the epic's evolution. In this volume, Tigay traces the development of the composition of The Gilgamesh Epic over nearly two millennia and through the several languages in which it has been transmitted. The result is a study both comprehensive in breadth and impressive in methodology. The author breaks from his scholarly predecessors in relying on documented textual evidence rather than on critical analysis and hypotheses.

Another totalitarian system began vigorously marching across the borders of Central Europe. The violent collectivization, mandatory atheist education, crude interrogations and imprisonment were just a few of the many experiences that profoundly affected the life of Slovak people. Cardinal Korec's book leads us vividly in the middle of this reality. Night of the Barbarians is an honest and sincere account of events as they began to unfold in front of the author's eyes beginning the night of April 13, 1950 and ending December 8, 1968.

Though Poles have played an important role in world history for more than 1,000 years, reference books devoted to the accomplishments of these men and women have been virtually nonexistent.
