Here we examine two case studies in which this occurs: first, the emergence of literacy from the behavior of writing, which ultimately yielded meta-awareness of conceptual domains, and second, change in lithic technologies and associated behaviors that may index the emergence of conceptual

The International Journal of Jungian Studies (IJJS) bridges the professional, clinical, and academic worlds of Jungian Studies for an international audience. It brings Jungian theory and practice into dialogue and debate with a wide variety of academic areas of study, and therapeutic concerns.

The editors encourage the submission of papers from Jungian Studies academics, psychoanalysts of all traditions -including analytical psychology, philosophers, anthropologists, critical theorists, feminists, political theorists, world-religious studies, sociologists, bio-ethicists, neuroscientists, and other sciences including students of these approaches in an ongoing critique/engagement with Analytical Psychology such as literature, film and media studies and fine art or art history. The IJJS wishes to continue the tradition of C.G. Jung in being open to a broad range of intellectual and experiential traditions while seeking to understand the human experience.

The IJJS publishes peer-reviewed, cutting-edge original articles of high academic quality. The journal is committed to embracing the diversity of Jungian thought and welcomes articles reporting research on:
  • analytical psychology themes from academic, clinical, symbolic, cultural and inter-cultural perspectives
  • comparative Jungian research in relation to other psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic themes
  • the interface between Jungian studies and other academic disciplines

The IJJS is published by Brill in collaboration with the International Association for Jungian Studies.

Res Gestae originally consisted of thirty-one books, although the first thirteen books have been lost. The surviving eighteen books (books 14-31) cover the period from 353 to 378.

  • Review
    "A monumental work of scholarship that no historian of the late fourth century can afford to ignore. [...] One could hardly expect more of any commentary."
    - Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2018.09.50
The Encyclopaedia of Islam Online (EI Online) is a unique and invaluable reference tool, an essential key to understanding the world of Islam. Brill was the first academic publisher to publish an encyclopedia on Islam, and the Encyclopaedia remains a cornerstone of its publishing program. The Encyclopaedia is a large-scale collective reference work compiled by the most prominent scholars in the field, touching on all aspects of Islam from the time of the Prophet to the present day.

Two 'editions' are included in the EI Online:
The Encyclopaedia of Islam Second Edition (EI2, published from 1955-2005)
A continuation of the highly acclaimed Encyclopaedia of Islam First Edition (1913-1936)*. The EI2's geographical scope encompasses the old Arabic-Islamic empire, the Islamic countries of Iran, the Ottoman Empire, Central Asia, the Indian sub-continent, Indonesia and many other Islamic countries. Entries are on religion, geography, ethnology, history, topography, culture and Muslims who have distinguished themselves in any particular aspect. Finished in 2005, the EI2 is a massive resource spanning five decades of scholarship.

The Encyclopaedia of Islam THREE (EI3, Third Edition, 2007- present day)
The Third Edition of Brill's Encyclopaedia of Islam is an entirely new work, with new articles reflecting the great diversity of current scholarship and developments in methodology. EI3 is a 'work in progress', appearing in regular installments every year. Many of its entries have been completely rewritten from previous editions. Alongside 1400 years of history, the new scope includes comprehensive coverage of Islam in the 20th and 21st Centuries, an even larger geographical scope (worldwide), a stronger focus on history, art, society, and culture, as well as Muslim minorities all over the world.

Combined as the EI Online, these two resources provide the most comprehensive and insightful coverage of the world of Islam available today. It is indispensable to scholars working in Islamic Studies, geographers, sociologists, journalists, policy makers and NGO's with an interest in Muslim culture and Islam. A must-have addition for any library collection.

Features and Benefits
  • The most complete, well-balanced and insightful reference work in the world of Islam available today
  • Includes all material from EI2 and EI3: decades of scholarship from two highly acclaimed sources
  • Over 17,000 entries from hundreds of scholars
  • Many full color illustrations
  • 6 updates per year including images and approximately 800,000 words of content
  • Includes all maps from the Historical Atlas of Islam

    "Continues the heritage of the previous editions in striving to achieve excellence, and it remains an essential acquisition for libraries supporting academic study of Islam, Middle Eastern studies, or the Arabic language. Summing Up: Essential." - C.A. Sproles, University of Louisville, in: CHOICE connect, December 2016

    *Encyclopaedia of Islam First Edition and the EI-2 French Edition are not included in the EI Online, but available as separate products.

    British Intelligence on China in Tibet, 1903-1950
    India Office Political and Secret Files and Confidential Print

    India Office Political and Secret Files and Confidential Print
    In addition, significant material is included that will provide insights into diplomatic, governmental and intelligence missions and contacts of the three major powers involved (Britain, Russia and China). This release was preceded by the release of “The India Political Intelligence (IPI) Files, 1912-1950”.

    Different imperatives
    Much of the value of this collection lies in the way it shows how the three players on the British side – that is, the Government of India, the India Office, and the Foreign Office – grappled with different imperatives. The view from the British Embassy in Peking, and later from wartime Chungking, was frequently at odds with that from Delhi or the India Office. For decades, the British side juggled with the self-imposed conundrum that recognition of Chinese suzerainty should be conditional upon China’s recognition of Tibetan autonomy, while avoiding precise definitions of either concept. Meanwhile, Tibet went its own way in a semi-independent limbo, subject to varying degrees of British intervention and support channeled through Government of India officials at Gyantse and Gartok (in Sikkim), or latterly in its Lhasa Mission.

    Historical status
    The collection begins with Lord Curzon’s “forward policy” of 1903-04, which was designed to create a Tibetan buffer state against Russian influence - significantly, all this material was printed by the Foreign Office. Then follow negotiations to keep Russia at a distance, and the return of the 13th Dalai Lama to Tibet from China. There is extensive coverage of Tibet’s break with China after the 1911 Revolution, the subsequent Simla Conference of 1912, and the delimitation of Tibet’s borders.
    One fascinating group of files details an attempt to turn four young Tibetans into a vanguard of “modernizers” through the medium of an English public school education. Another large group of files records the way in which access to Tibet was closely controlled by the British.

    Internal affairs
    Tibet’s internal affairs and British encouragement of de facto semi-independence during the 1920s and 1930s, led to a renewed concern for Chinese Nationalist claims during World War II. Particularly interesting from this period are the files on the “discovery” of the 14th (i.e., the present) Dalai Lama in 1937-39. The collection ends with the complete reversal following the Independence of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the Communist victory in China.

    Provenance & historical background
    All the files and related confidential print reproduced, form part of the papers of the Political & Secret Department in the India Office Records (with the exception of three items from the Military Department and its World War II offshoot, the War Staff – Fiche 29-35 and 299).
    The files comprise a wide variety of papers received from the Government of India Foreign Department and other sources in India, and from the Foreign Office in London, together with India Office-generated minutes, comments, and replies. In 1982 the Foreign & Commonwealth Office transferred the administration of the India Office Library & Records to the British Library, where it now forms a part of the Library’s Oriental & India Office Collections.
