001277 Vazov, I. Under the Yoke.
In "Under the Yoke" Ivan Vazov has brought to life the entire cosmos of Bulgarian people, has formulated its philosophical and everyday-life views not clad in words by anyone before him, describing the relations between enslaved and enslavers: "Enslaved peoples have their own philosophy that reconciles them with the life as it is... A people enslaved, though without hope, never commits suicide: it eats, drinks and makes children, it makes its time pass in merriment". Of course, this suggestion refers to "little" peoples, the "big" ones simply never fall under slavery... Although the novel presents a specific historical moment along with a national story, "Under the Yoke" expresses in fact the pathos of the struggle for freedom that had pervaded the nation, that had transformed the temporary into eternal, the national into something common to all mankind. It is no wonder then that this novel-epopee proved to be the most popular work of Bulgarian literature abroad. Especially in countries whose historical fate was similar to Bulgarian one...

001844 Kandjeva, V., A. Handzhiiski Koprivshtitsa: Hystory and Architecture
Koprivshtitsa is a picturesque little town-museum and is also a reserve of architecture and history, tucked away amidst the pretty rounded ridges of Sredna Gora Range. It is located at a distance of 100 km east of Sofia (the capital city of Bulgaria) and offers to everybody who visits it an unforgettable stroll into the kaleidoscope of the past. The meandering, cobblestone-paved little streets that squeeze between the tall stone-wall fences, the heavy wooden gateways with little built-in doors, and the beautiful wooden houses - symbol of wealth and prosperity of their owners, the wonderful arched bridges over river Topolnitsa and its tributaries, and the numerous stone fountains are a remarkable expression of the creative inventiveness and the high building culture of the men that built them. Finding oneself among those dear old-time relics, one has the feeling that one has also landed in another epoch, namely the second half of 19th century, the epoch of Bulgarian Renaissance. And only the fast modern automobiles, the up-to-date dressed inhabitants of the town and the numerous groups of Bulgarian and foreign tourists somewhat upset this picture. When did this settlement come into being, who was its founder and where its name has come from is difficult to tell nowadays: many centuries have past and there is no one we can ask these questions. Probably this was the reason for the people's fantasy to invent numerous legends and sagas…

Hille for the representation by series in Hermite polynomials is included and a new approach to the corresponding result of H. Pollard for the Laguerre polynomials, based on an operator of Riemann-Liuville type, is proposed. The roleof the classical Hankel, Meijer, Laplace and Fouries integral transforms in solving the representation problem for Laguerre and Hermite systeems is also clarified. Convergence and Cesaro summability of series in Jacobi, Laguerre and Hermute polynomials on the boundaries of their regions of convrgence is studied. A review on singular points and analytical continuation of holomorphic functions defined by Jacobi, Laguerre and Hermite series is given.

003721. Nikola Obrechkoff Selected Papers. Volume 1
The scientific heritage of the outstanding Bulgarian mathematician Nikola Obrechkoff (1896-1963) is impressive with its variety and deepness. Classical algebra, analysis, Diophantine approximations, mechanical qudratures and numerical analysis, probabilities and statistics, integral geometry - these are the main regions in which he has got a number of remarkable results. Some of them are unsurpassed even till now. In the first volume the reader will find the general form of a pair of entire-functions which are uniform limits of polynomials with only real and interlacing zeros, an interesting version of the classical Taylor's formula, results about the expansion of holomorphic functions in series of Bessel's polynomials and in their associated functions, Tauberian type theorems for the classical Laplace transform as well as the most for reaching generalization of this transform already bearing the name of Obrechkoff. In the same volume are included results for the limit values of functions and their derivatives on the positive real axis obtained on the basis of a new formula for the Newton's quotients and generalising classical theorem of G. H. Hardy and J. E. Litlewood, E. Landau, T.Kubota, G. Doetsch. Further, a quadrature formula of a quite general form is given having as particular cases classical formulas of this type as that of Newton and Maclaurin.

003722. Nikola Obrechkoff Selected Papers. Volume 2
The second volume contains Obrechkoff 's works in one of the most actively elaborated regions of investigations in the classical analysis in the 20th century. Deep results for the summation of the Taylor, Dirichlet, Fourier and Laplace series by means of the classical method of Riemann, Cesaro, Riesz, Euler-Knopp, Borel, Mittag-Leffler and Hausdorff are included. For the first time is studied the summation of Taylor's series of a function, holomorphic at the origin, at points on the boundary of its Borel's polygon of summation. An absolute summation by typical Riesz means is introduced and applied to the classical Dirichlet series. In particular, the connection between the abcissas of summability and convergence of such series is cleared as well as their summation at points on the boundary of the region of summability is studied. Further, the comparison of Doetsch's and Knopp' s summations, both generalizing the classical Borel’s summation, has given that the second one is more powerful than the first. A method of summation is defined by using continuous and non-decreasing function having "regular" growth on the positive semi-axis. This method which unifies the methods of Borel, Riesz and Mittag-Leffler, applied to the Dirichlet series, leads to well-known properties of the Riesz summation proved earlier by M. Riesz and G. Hardy.

Unfortunately, our knowledge about the cult practices of the Thracians is extremely insufficient from the point of view of both the written sources and the archaeological documentation. Therefore, every theory or hypothesis that tries to be based on a certain cult tends to be dubious as reliable evidence. However, this does not prevent the permanent use of that concept. It is most frequently applied when there is no consistent system of arguments for a differentiated characterization of an event. Therefore, in most cases the concept remains blurred and does not turn into a working term. One of the most frequently cited theories in the specialized literature on Thracian studies claims the real existence of a "solar cult" among the ancient Thracians. The attempts to support it with arguments are based on fragmentary written evidence (in interpretation) or of separate iconic signs, but it has not been proven so far on the basis of the results of the investigation of an entire complex.

006894. Ivan Iordanov Corpus of Byzantine Seals from Bulgaria, Vol. 3. Part 1 and part 2
Richly illustrated edition. It includes all Byzantine seals found in the territory of modern Bulgaria - more than 3,200 specimens. The material is arranged in keeping with the existing classifications and serves as an illustration of the administrative and rank hierarchy in the Byzantine Empire. Due to the nature of the documented material, the author felt his obligation to include a seventh chapter or Supplement comprising seals with incomplete texts or texts posing difficulties for reading (nos. 2586-3200). Their inclusion is also based on the fact that the find-spots of many are known, and thus they appear to be major sources for the history of the respective settlements. According to established tradition, the Corpus is provided with indexes of proper, family and geographical names as well as of the titles and positions inscribed on the seals. An iconographic index and an index of the seals with metrical texts are also included. One new index deals with the provenance of the seals. The specific advantage of the seals from Bulgaria is that information on find-spots is available for a large number of them. This index is perhaps the beginning of a future investigation of the settlements, towns and regions in medieval Bulgaria as based on the sigillographic data.

007415. Bozhidar Dimitrov Bulgarian Christian Civilization
Bulgaria was blessed to receive the words of God from two of Jesus Christ's apostles. In 52, Apostle Andrew set off on a tour in the affluent and populous cities along the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. It was the time when the first Christian communities headed by bishops were established. In the third and fourth centuries large groups of Proto-Bulgarians settled near the Black Sea coast. In 632, Khan Kubrat established the state that the Byzantine historians named Great Bulgaria. Religious tolerance in the Bulgarian society allowed the quick spread of Christianity among the population. The founder of Old Great Bulgaria, Khan Kubrat adopted Christianity in Byzantium's court. His descendants of the Dulo clan, rulers of Bulgaria till 759, were Christians. In 864 annalists from all over Europe recorded: "He, Bulgaria's King Boris and his whole people accepted the Holy Baptism". Bozhidar Dimitrov

008307. Mikhail Enev Bansko - a center of culture through the ages
The historical depth, into which we can penetrate into the past of the cultural-and-spiritual center of the Bulgarian city Bansko, extends as far back as to that limit, which marks the beginning of the legends and the traditions. That is the reason why every story about Bansko, even the most common one, heard in that town, sounds lifelike when told in the irresistible in its charm “Bankovskite speech”, which is both music and poetry with an inimitable dramatic intonation. The conquering with its magnificence mountainous scenery, allotted to Bansko, is a perfect natural creation which has in itself been a challenge to the artists, the poets and the singers of that region to always strive for the unattainable. And it still is. The air, which the Banskovites have been breathing for ages, is fresh and, in the metaphoric sense, deprived of a spiritual pollution, saturated, today as well, with that “ozone” of the Renaissance, which one feels in both the architectural silhouettes of the Revival Period and in the living bond of the people with the national cultural traditions. That is why Bansko has indeed much to be proud of.

009448. Co. Atlas. Bulgarskite zemi v srednovekovnata arabopismena kartografska traditsiia ot (IX – XIV v.) / Atlas. The Bulgarian Lands in the Medieval Arabic Cartographic Tradition (9th - 14th Centuries)
Text in Bulgarian and English. This is a continuation of the edition "Bulgarskite zemi v evropeiskata kartografska traditsia (3-19 v.) / The Bulgarian Lands in the European Cartographic Tradition (3-19 c.)". This volume is an attempt to present the historical-geographic perspective of the East to the Bulgarians and the Bulgarian lands through the Arabic-written cartographic tradition for the period of so called Golden Age of Bulgaria (9th-14th c.). This perspective is very interesting in some reasons. The Bulgarians came from the Indo-Iranian massive. They migrated from Asia to Europe through the borders of the Persian-Midian world. They established their ethno-cultural model by the huge influence of the millennium aged culture of Ancient Iran. After the conquering of Iran from the Arabians, the Arabian culture changed itself by the influence of the Ancient-Persian cultural tradition. These sources also point to the Bulgarians as one of the active historical factors in the social-cultural amalgam of Eurasia in the mentioned period. The present edition will help in forming the historical-geographic and cartographic segment in the Bulgarian national culture.

009249. Dimana Trankova, Anthony Georgieff A Guide to Jewish Bulgaria
Text in English. For the first time in English, this book is for anyone with an interest in Jewish history in Eastern Europe in general and Bulgaria in particular. Bulgaria, one of Europe's least known lands, famously did not report about 48,000 Jews during the Second World War. Many Bulgarians now extol this as a heroic deed, possibly omitting to mention the fate of 11,343 Jews from Aegean Thrace, Vardar Macedonia and Pirot who were sent to concentration camps by the pro-Nazi Kingdom of Bulgaria. Similarly to other countries in Eastern Europe, history is being interpreted according to whoever is in power and does the talking. The debate, if there is any, focuses on who is to take the credit for the rescue: the Communist Party, the Orthodox Church, a bunch of forthright MPs who openly opposed the planned deportations, or the power of Bulgaria's civil society. These questions generate other questions. If the Bulgarians were so good to their Jews during the war, why were thru so few Jews left in the Bulgaria of the Warsaw Pact? What happened to their heritage, a remnant of at least 18 centuries of Jewish presence in these lands? "A Guide to Jewish Bulgaria" will take you to the relatively well-known Jewish heritage sites in Sofia, Plovdiv, Samokov, Pazardzhik, Ruse and Shumen, but will also detour off the beaten track to the lesser and sometimes unexpected sites of Jewish interest in Vidin, Lom, Silistra, Dobrich, Varna, Burgas, Yambol, Stara Zagora, Dupnitsa, Kyustendil, Gotse Delchev and many others. Richly illustrated with superb photography and voicing independent research and opinion, "A Guide to Jewish Bulgaria" is designed to be a journey through both territory and time: illuminating the backgrounds while directing through the topography. Many of the monuments described are hard to find and in various stages of disrepair. Some are poignant, others are stomach-churning. But once discovered, they will hold a reward as they will open up the gateways to a fascinating if largely forgotten part of Europe's Jewish heritage.

009663. Ivan Iordanov The collection of Medieval Seals from the National Archaeological Museum Sofia
The medieval seals collection of the National Archaeological Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is the oldest in Bulgaria. It includes nearly two hundred seals accumulated over the museum's long history. The first seal entered the museum as early as the first year of its separate existence in 1892, the second one in 1893 and the third in 1894. Towards the year 1934 the collection amounted to nearly 159 specimens, of which 84 were acquired from Istanbul, while the remaining 67 were discovered in Bulgaria. In the past seventy years or so their number has not increased much. Other collections were formed in the country during that time. The total number of Byzantine seals found in modern Bulgaria has already surpassed 3,300 specimens. The collection shared the fate of the other monuments of the Archaeological Museum; it suffered bombing, as a result of which the original inventory book was destroyed. The current one is a reconstruction made by Todor Gerasimov. Some specimens published by Nikola Mushmov in 1934 were probably lost again as a result of the same air raid. They have also been included in the present catalogue noted as missing and most probably destroyed during the bombing. The present book is the most current edition which presents the collection. Each description begins with the inventory number of the seal; in cases when it is not indicated, it means that the seal is missing.

009664. Konstantin Totev Thessalonican Eulogia found in Bulgaria
Lead ampules, enkolpia and icons from the 12th–15th centuries. The present study focuses on a group of monuments of Byzantine applied art recently unearthed on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria. All are made of lead and represent part of the pilgrimage items produced in the second largest city of the empire -Thessaloniki, associated with the miracles and relics of St. Demetrius. In addition to the patron of the city whose relics begin to exude myrrh, here are venerated other local saints as well - St. Theodore, St. Matrona, St. Teodulus, St. Frontonus, some of whom are also myrrh-gushers. Very often the images of St. Demetrius are accompanied by effigies of his direct followers Nestor and Loup, as well as the military saints George, Theodore and Procopius. The study devotes some space to all pilgrimage objects whose terminological definition and classification raises the question of continuity between early-, medium-and late Byzantine ampoules, pilgrim tokens, philacteria, souvenirs etc., which can be generally labeled as eulogia. The preservation of relics in specially made small size artefacts, decorated with a selection of images and scenes, enables the possibility of their easy distribution in all parts of Christendom. Usually these are relic holders or reliquaries. Nowadays, only single copies with images of St. Demetrius can be connected with Thessaloniki. They are made of gold, silver and cell enamel cell and contain relics of the saint. Most of them are kept in the treasuries of famous Orthodox monasteries and Western European cathedrals, as well as in world famous museums and galleries. The Byzantine author Manuel Philes calls them enkolpions-reliquaries. The presence of a whole group of expensive reliquaries shows that besides the mass production of eulogia of cheaper materials such as lead, in Thessaloniki were also made reliquaries of precious metal for pilgrims of high rank, senior clergymen and guests with diplomatic missions. The lead koutrubia ampoules are meant for storage of myrrh (fragrant oil), whose production from the 12th century onwards is associated with the cult of the defender of the city, St. Demetrius, and together with him the other local saints, whose images decorated the sides of the ampoules. Different is the case of the lead koutrubia ampoules for the storage of myrrh (fragrant oil). In the 12th century the ointment is associated with the cult defender of the city, St. Demetrius, and possibly, along with him, also other local saints, whose images decorated the walls of the ampoules. It oozed only from the bodies of ?????????? (myrrh-gushing) saints. Through it the pilgrims communicated with the relics and the miraculous power of saints. Of another nature and artistic decoration are the extremely rare lead enkolpions with the scene The miracle of the Greek youth rescued by St. Demetrius and a leaved cross, as well as an image of the three warrior saints Theodore, George and Demetrius and a leaved cross, made and used as pilgrim tokens as it seems during the Latin rule in Thessaloniki. So far unknown was a series of bilateral eulogia icons cast of lead with varied iconographic repertoire, through which one can also can follow the trailof pilgrims in Southeastern Europe. The images and stories presented on them are usually directly related to the protection of those who wear them - pilgrims and soldiers. The study of items of similar function and decoration, generally called eulogia, i.e. various pilgrimage tokens or souvenirs, enables to ascertain certain features and mutual interferences, which appeared during the crusades in the art of Byzantium and the Latin West. The Thessaloniki lead ampoules, enkolpions and icons indicate not only the manufacture and distribution of eulogia in the middle and late Byzantine period, but also reflect the mass nature of their production and the diversity of art subjects on these pilgrimage products. The presented new material from Bulgaria includes more than 100 lead eulogia found during archaeological excavations or acquired as purchases in the museum network of this country, as well as those owned by private collectors. They are successively discussed in three groups, accompanied by a general catalogue. The newly found ampoules, enkolpions and icons significantly expand the circle of monuments of Byzantine metal plastics associated with pilgrimage. The material in question creates a real picture of the production in Thessaloniki of this mass products intended for pilgrims from the whole Christian world. The availability of primitive traits in the design of some images and the cheap materials used show that these are objects which were widely popular. Their recovery in Bulgaria traces the paths of pilgrims from Thessaloniki to the Bulgarian towns and fortresses in the 12th—14 th centuries.

009893. Alexander Gungov, Karim Mamdani Rights and Values in an Expanding Europe: A Mutual Enrichment through Different Traditions
One of the crucial questions, which emerges in the process of the EU expansion is “How to avoid the alienation of the values and rights from the vivid culture of the European nations?” No doubt, they should not be limited to formal principles of communication. The point is to determine what should be done within the frame of politics, economy, education, healthcare, legislation, art, etc. in order to implement the principles of the European culture as guidelines for European citizens. Discussing rights and values in the Enlarging EU, it is usually assumed that the new member states are going to adopt the standard of the current members or at least appreciate an ideal set of already existing exemplary items. It is a common place that values such as humanism, rationalism, social cooperation as well as various human and civic rights and freedoms need to be confirmed and improved among the countries accessing to the Union. However, it is worthwhile to ask if the approbated rights and values themselves will remain the same or should undergo a certain transformation. In its Contribution to the October Meeting of the Heads of State and Government entitled “European values in the globalised world”, the European Commission concludes: “Through modernisation, we will preserve our values” (25.10.2005). All kinds of transformation within the EU always presuppose keeping intact the values and rights. Is this the only productive position or some different approaches are possible too? Can the nations that have just entered the Union contribute to the common values and rights or the only thing they could do is to stick to the approved ones? Is there any chance a need for change in this field to arise after the EU expansion even though the traditional members and the new members share the same standard? The International Symposium on Rights and Values in Expanding Europe (University of Sofia, June 3-4, 2006) addressed the above questions from an interdisciplinary and multinational angle. It was co-organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in Sofia, Goethe Institute Sofia, Austrian Science and Research Liaison Office Sofia, Institute for Axiological Research – Vienna, and University’s of Sofia Graduate Program in Philosophy Taught in English. Among the participants were scholars representing some long standing EU countries such as Italy, Germany (Professor Dr. Maurizio Bach’s, University of Passau, paper "The Enlargement Crisis of European Union: from Political Integration to Social Disintegration?" was presented at the Symposium but not submitted for inclusion into the proceedings), and Austria. A number of Bulgarian experts took part too. Prof. Dr. Mihail-Constantin Eremia from the University of Bucharest passed away just before the Symposium. We are publishing here the summary of his presentation.

009894. Alexander Gungov, Karim Mamdani The Addressees of the EU Internal and External Policy: De Jure and De Facto
The International symposium dedicated to the 120th Anniversary of Sofia University and the 50th Anniversary of the Commencement of the European Economic Community was organized by the Department of Logic, Ethics, and Aesthetics at Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, the Italian Institute of Culture in Sofia, and the Austrian Science and Research Liaison Office Sofia. It was held at the SU main campus on 15 Tsar Osvoboditel Blvd., known as the Rectorate, on September 23-25, 2008 as the news of the bizarre and troubling financial crisis poured in from all sides. The conference organizers observed that since the last two enlargements of the EU a number of new challenges face its citizens, institutions, legislation procedures, economic and moral principles. The same recent developments have been affecting the EU allies, neighbors, friends, competitors, and critics. The conference was convened with the intention of examining how the Union copes with this situation through its various internal and external policies; and most importantly—to whom are these policies addressed. What are the reasons for optimism or pessimism? In a lively and friendly exchange, the participants and the audience spent two days enjoying themselves in defiance of the mounting financial catastrophe. The convivial gathering (based on a radical pessimism concerning the current state of affairs) maintained the highest level of scholarly rigor throughout the symposium and ended with an official dinner at the Czech Club just a short walk from the University. The topics included in the current proceedings range from whether the European community is a political construction to who are the beneficiaries of EU expansion, cover the issue of the dismantling of the nation-state, touch upon the controversy of international law versus supranational sovereignty, consider European and American educational traditions as well as the opposite directions of reform export: from West to East and from East to West. A number of the papers presented could not be included in these proceedings for various reasons. Among them are Assoc. Prof. Dr. Maria Dimitrova’s (Sofia University) “Challenges to the Common European Social Space Construction,” Assoc. Prof. Dr. Valentin Petrusenko’s (University of Plovdiv) “Institutional Framework of the New EU-Latin American Approach,” Mr. Nicola Zambelli’s (Italy) “Philosophy of Mirroring in the Bulgarian Context,” Mr. Ted Efremoff’s (USA) “Intercultural Collaboration for Artistic Response to Global Hatred,” Ms. Hege C. Finholt’s (Boston University) “The Non-Sovereign Nation-State: A Cultural Interpretation of National Self-Determination,” and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Alexander Gungov’s (Sofia University) “Intellectual Isolation in Europe: Some Reflections on the History of Italian Philosophy.” The editors hope that this collection will go some way toward dispelling the mist surrounding the fate of Europe or at least do it no great harm.

The participants' contributions were arranged in seven plenary sessions and more than eighty associated round tables and panels of free communications, displaying an amazing variety of directions of research. The present edition reflects the event. It is published in three volumes - volume I "Plenary Papers", volume II "Abstracts of Round Table Communications" and volume III "Abstracts of Free Communications". The texts in the edition are written mostly in English, but there are also papers in one of these languages: French, Russian, German, Greek or Italian.

010060. Vasilka Tupkova-Zaimova, Anisava Miltenova Historical and Apocalyptic Literature in Byzantium and Medieval Bulgaria
The book presents a panorama of the extraordinarily rich and varied tradition of historical and apocalyptical literature in tenth- through seventeenth-century medieval Bulgaria. A number of Old Church Slavonic texts are described and analyzed, as both a critical edition and a translation with commentary. These texts include The Vision and Interpretation of Daniel, The Revelation of Pseudo-Methodius Patarensis, The Last Vision of Prophet Daniel, Prophet Isaiah’s Vision of the Final Days, The Oracles of Leo the Wise, and Andreas Salos’ Apocalypses. The Bulgarian tradition is analysed by examining not only the reception of Byzantine texts in Bulgaria, but also the reproduction and transformation of such texts, as well as the creation of an impressive number of original works, including Isaiah’s Narrative, The Bulgarian Apocryphal Chronicle, Pandeh’s Prophetic Story, The Story of Sibyl, and Razumnik-ukaz. The production of this type of medieval literature in the Byzantine-Slavonic commonwealth covers a wide variety of genres, including narrative works, chronicles, questions and answers, and brief oracles. The proliferation of this unique phenomenon of historical and apocalyptic works in medieval Bulgaria has no analogue in other Slavic literatures.

The book is bilingual - in Bulgarian and English. The book contains the researches of the famous Bulgarian archeologist Daniela Agre on the results from the archaeological survey of the Goliamata Mogila (the Grand Mound, the region of South East Bulgaria) which was held by her. There was found an intact grave of a supreme Thracian aristocrat - one of the richest funerals from the age of the Thracians fond in the Bulgarian lands. Except a detailed analysis of the finds from the mound, the author propounds some new untraditional hypotheses and interpretations, which have the strength to change today's points of view on the Thracian art. The book is written in strictly scientific style, but it might be interesting also on a wide range of readers interested of the history, culture and believes of the Thracians.

The present issue of ZooKeys comprises a series of papers honoring Prof. Kumar Krishna, the leading authority on the systematics and biology of termites (Isoptera). After becoming exposed to termite systematics under the tutelage of Mittan L. Roonwal in India, Kumar received his doctoral training from the legendary termite systematist and evolutionary biologist Alfred E. Emerson at the University of Chicago. Subsequently, Kumar moved to the City University of New York and the American Museum of Natural History from here, even today, he has produced some of the most important contributions to the study of termites, most notably his two-volume set, Biology of Termites (1969–1970, Academic Press), and the forthcoming monumental Treatise on the Isoptera of the World (AMNH). Herein colleagues and friends recognize his lifetime of accomplishments in biological systematics by presenting original papers on insect lineages as diverse as termites and grasshoppers, and flies and bees, among others. A brief biographical account and list of his publications to date are provided.

010433. Terry L Erwin ZooKeys #147. Proceedings of a symposium honoring the careers of Ross and Joyce Bell and their contributions to scientific work. Burlington, Vermont, 12–15 June 2010
On the occasion of the 80th birthday of Ross T. Bell, Professor Emeritus of Entomology at the University of Vermont, his colleagues and former students staged a Festschrift in his honor that included his wife and oft-times co-author, Joyce Bell. Two days of scientific presentations and a field day resulted in twenty-six manuscripts on such diverse organisms as Coleoptera, Collembola, and Diptera and in such disparate fields as taxonomy, phylogeny, ecology, with a sprinkling of natural history and cyberinfrastructure. Mostly, the theme of the papers focus on the beetle family Carabidae, on which the Bells spent a number of decades in pursuit of information on taxonomy and biology, particularly for the wrinkled bark beetles, the rhysodines. Twenty-six scientific contributions make up this volume and they are introduced by the preface and first two papers on the Bells themselves and their other contributions to teaching and natural history studies in the environs of Burlington, Vermont.

Research on Chrysomelidae vol. 3 continues a series which began under Brill Academic Publishers, Leiden, with volume 1 in 2008. Volume 2 appeared in 2009 and had four regularly submitted papers and the Proceedings of the 7th International Symposium on the Chrysomelidae (held 6-8 July, 2008 at Durban, South Africa) with nine papers based on presentations to this meeting. The present volume also combines a number of regular papers with the proceedings of a symposium. In 2010, the European Symposium on the Biology of the Chrysomelidae was held within the frame of the IXth European Congress of Entomology (ECE) at Budapest, Hungary, on August 23. Hungary – as the host country of the congress - has a long tradition of entomological research and always had a marked bridging role in the social life of entomologists of Europe. The ECE has been co-organized by the Hungarian Entomological Society which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010. The Hungarian Entomological Society is one of the oldest scientific societies in Hungary with continuous activity, including the 1950s, when most Hungarian societies were dissolved by the communist government. This congress offered an important opportunity for entomologist to exchange ideas, results, and social matters. On top of all, the city of Budapest provided a beautiful background to this memorable scientific and social event. We, the organisers of the Symposium on Chrysomelidae, are proud and happy to see our conference represented by five papers based on contributions to it in vol. 157 of ZooKeys (Research on Chrysomelidae vol. 3). Four more papers on leaf beetles complete this volume. We thank authors and publishers for helping to make research on leaf beetles more visible and easier to access.

The book revise the New World species of the subgenera Allotrichoma Becker and Neotrichoma (new subgenus) (genus Allotrichoma). For phylogenetic perspective to this revision, the authors have studied all genusgroup taxa within the tribe Hecamedini and reassessed their cladistic relationships. Their phylogenetic study for taxa within the genus Allotrichoma has been done at the species-group level, and they have attempted to approach this globally by examining species from throughout the world and placing them into appropriate species groups. Within Allotrichoma, present three subgenera. All known species from the New World are described with an emphasis on structures of the male terminalia, which are fully illustrated. We more than double the number of species known from the New World with six of 12 species in the subgenus Allotrichoma being described herein, and in a newly described subgenus, Neotrichoma, two of the three species from the New World are also described.

010428. Co. ZooKeys #167. Systematics, conservation and morphology of the spider genus Tayshaneta (Araneae, Leptonetidae) in Central Texas Caves
The book revises the spider genus Tayshaneta based on results from a three gene phylogenetic analysis (Ledford et al. 2011) and a comprehensive morphological survey using scanning electron (SEM) and compound light microscopy. The morphology and relationships within Tayshaneta are discussed and five species-groups are supported by phylogenetic analyses: the anopica group, the coeca group, the myopica group, the microps group and the sandersi group. Short branch lengths within Tayshaneta contrast sharply with the remaining North American genera and are viewed as evidence for a relatively recent radiation of species. The authors study and compare variation in troglomorphic morphology to patterns found in other Texas cave invertebrates. Several species previously known as single cave endemics have wider ranges than expected, suggesting that some caves are not isolated habitats but instead form part of interconnected karst networks. Distribution maps are compared with karst faunal regions (KFR’s) in Central Texas and the implications for the conservation and recovery of Tayshaneta species are discussed. Ten new species are described: T. archambaulti sp. n., T. emeraldae sp. n., T. fawcetti sp. n., T. grubbsi sp. n., T. madla sp. n., T. oconnorae sp. n., T. sandersi sp. n., T. sprousei sp. n., T. vidrio sp. n. and T. whitei sp. n. The males for three species, T. anopica (Gertsch, 1974), T. devia (Gertsch, 1974) and T. microps (Gertsch, 1974) are described for the first time. Tayshaneta furtiva (Gertsch, 1974) and T. uvaldea (Gertsch, 1974) are declared nomina dubia as the female holotypes are not diagnosable and efforts to locate specimens at the type localities were unsuccessful. All Tayshaneta species are thoroughly illustrated, diagnosed and keyed. Distribution maps are also provided highlighting areas of taxonomic ambiguity in need of additional sampling.

010921. A Miller, C Griswold ZooKeys #195. The velvet spiders: an atlas of the Eresidae (Arachnida, Araneae). Special Issue
The family Eresidae C. L. Koch, 1850 is reviewed at the genus level. The family comprises nine genera including one new genus. They are: Adonea Simon, 1873, Dorceus C. L. Koch, 1846, Dresserus Simon, 1876, Eresus Walckenaer, 1805, Gandanameno Lehtinen, 1967, Loureedia gen. n., Paradonea Lawrence, 1968, Seothyra Purcell, 1903, and Stegodyphus Simon, 1873. A key to all genera and major lineages is provided along with corresponding diagnoses, as well as descriptions of selected species. These are documented with collections of photographs, scanning electron micrographs, and illustrations. A new phylogeny of Eresidae based on molecular sequence data expands on a previously published analysis. A species of the genus Paradonea Lawrence, 1968 is sequenced and placed phylogenetically for the first time. New sequences from twenty Gandanameno Lehtinen, 1967 specimens were added to investigate species limits within the genus. The genus Loureedia gen. n. is proposed to accommodate Eresus annulipes Lucas, 1857. Two species, Eresus semicanus Simon, 1908 and Eresus jerbae El-Hennawy, 2005, are synonymized with Loureedia annulipes comb. n. One new species, Paradonea presleyi sp. n. is described. Eresus algericus El-Hennawy, 2004 is transferred to Adonea Simon, 1873. The female of Dorceus fastuosus C. L. Koch, 1846 is described for the first time. The first figures depicting Paradonea splendens (Lawrence, 1936) are presented.

010853. Darren Pollock ZooKeys #188. Review of the Eustrophinae (Coleoptera, Tetratomidae) of America north of Mexico
Based on examination of more than 6,600 adult specimens, this work treats the Nearctic fauna of Eustrophinae (Tetratomidae), a relatively obscure, but potentially ecologically significant, group of beetles associated with wood-rotting fungi in most forest ecosystems. Five genera and 12 species are recognized: Pseudoholostrophus (Pseudoholostrophus) impressicollis (LeConte), P. (Holostrophinus) discolor (Horn), Holostrophus bifasciatus (Say), Eustrophus tomentosus Say, Eustrophopsis confinis (LeConte), E. bicolor (Fabricius), E. brunneimarginatus (Dury), E. indistinctus (LeConte), E. arizonensis (Horn), E. ornatus (Van Dyke), and Synstrophus repandus (Horn). A new species, Eustrophopsis crowdyi is described from southern Arizona. An identification key, supplemented with color photographs of the body (dorsal and lateral), frontal view of head, prosternal process and other structural features, is presented. Distribution maps of known geographical rang! es in Canada and the United States (and Mexico for three southern species) are included, supplemented by detailed locality data. In addition to the taxonomic analyses, preliminary comments are made on the biogeography of the Nearctic Eustrophinae, as well as their natural history and ecological importance in forest habitats.

010851. David Houghton ZooKeys #189. Biological diversity of the Minnesota caddisflies (Insecta, Trichoptera)
This work contains illustrations, statewide abundances, distributions, adult flight periodicities, and habitat affinities for all of the 277 known Minnesota caddisfly species. These species are based on examination of >300,000 specimens from 2,166 collections of 937 Minnesota aquatic habitats from 1890 to 2007. Four species: Lepidostoma griseum (Lepidostomatidae), Psilotreta indecisa (Odontoceridae), and Phryganea sayi and Ptilostomis angustipennis (Phryganeidae) are added to the known fauna. An additional 31 dubious species records are removed for various reasons. Biological diversity was highest in the Lake Superior and Northern regions of the state, intermediate in the Southeastern, and lowest in the Northwestern and Southern. Many species, especially within the long-lived shredder families Limnephilidae and Phryganeidae, have decreased in distribution and abundance during the past 75 years, particularly those once common within the Northwestern and Southern regions. Many species now appear regionally extirpated, and a few have disappeared from the entire state. This loss of species in the Northwestern and Southern regions, and probably elsewhere, is almost certainly related to the conversion of many habitats to large-scale agriculture during the mid-20th century. With aseline data now in place, any future changes to the Minnesota caddisfly fauna can be evaluated with much greater confidence and precision.

010923. N Yonow ZooKeys #197. Opisthobranchs from the western Indian Ocean, with descriptions of two new species and ten new records (Mollusca, Gastropoda)
This large work on sea slugs of the Western Indian Ocean is a major contribution to our knowledge of opisthobranch diversity and biogeography. The western Indian Ocean has long been known as a distinct biogeographical region, and reports of opisthobranchs from the province have been sporadic. Despite nearly 200 years of study, recent work estimates that there are more than 1000 undescribed species in the whole of the Indo-Pacific region. There have been considerable developments in the study of many taxonomic groups for the area in the last 50 years, including opisthobranchs, and this paper describes 70 species, of which ten species are recorded from the western Indian Ocean for the first time. Many phyllidiids and chromodorids seem to have a distribution limited to the western Indian Ocean, whilst there seem to be differences in species richness between coastal areas and island groups. Further work will shed light on many of these issues.

011026. Aleksandur Peikov Katalog na monetite ot Trakiia ch.1 / Catalogue of the Coins from Thrace part 1
English and Bulgarian text. The beginning of the research work of the Thracian coinages has been started more than two centuries ago. The main reason for this is the fact that the Thracian civilization is narrowly connected with the Greek one. Almost hundred years have passed from the moment when the prominent Bulgarian numismatist Nikola Moushmov has published his capital work "The Antique Coins on the Balkan Peninsula and the Coins of the Bulgarian Tsars". The information for the coinages of the Thracian tribes and rulers and for those of the Paionean and Scythian king has increased significantly during this period. Large number of unknown coin types have been published, a second group has been re-dated and a third one - attributed to the coinages of other rulers. All of these points determine the necessity of such a book, which containes possibly the most complete information in this field. It is unthinkable for anyone to compile such catalogue without the labour of tens of researchers and numismatists, who are cited and to whom we owe gratitude. The described in this Catalogue coins are one of the first minted in Europe. Their number is significantly limited in comparison with the coin production of ancient Greece, Roma and Byzantium but strictly they are the ones to determine the economic, social and aesthetic trends in the means-of-payment production. In short, they are the beginning of the classical numismatics. And exactly because of this fact it is very strange that this fractured information has not been collected and summoned together and a common picture, attested in these first expressions of the material and spiritual culture, of that time has not been presented. The present work aims to fill, at least partially, this vacuum. Data for all Thracian coins which have reached us is included in the Catalogue. Nominals, coin types and variants are described together with their metrical characteristics and approximate datings. The more significant publications are marked for those who need additional information. The classes of rarity according to our examinations are included to help the collectors in their activities. Once more for them, we will remember, that the price of a certain coin depends on the first place on its stage of preservation and after that on its class of rarity. The illustrations are an important advantage for the users of the catalogue. Almost all of the depicted coin types are presented with photoes or drawings, which helps the readers to find their way in this not an easy field. All the illustrations are shown with the real dimensions of the coins and, where it is possible, for the small nominals - in scale 2:1. The larger part of the coins of the Thracian tribesand rulers are distinguished for their extremely high class of rarity, significant art value and even for their enigma. These are the facts which determine the rising interest of the collectors towards the Thracian coinages during the last several decades and which make them a good investment as well.

Serdica is the old name of today's capital of Bulgaria - Sofia. Serdica certainly has an ancient and rich history long before its first "Golden Age". This study, however, focuses exclusively on the turning point for the Roman Empire and the Christian church over a period of the middle of the III century to the middle of the VI century. The aim is not to be explored but to be brought out the main stages in the rising of the Roman and Christian Serdica, to be indicated the main reasons that led to this rising and to be focused on its nature. The emphasis is on the close relationship between the transformation of the Empire and the Church, on the one hand and on the other hand - on the urban development, cultural traditions, the population and the rulers of the city. The basis of the book are the historical sources, preserved their local and foreign memory for the city and the huge work of the Bulgarian archaeologists started in the late XIX century and especially active in the XXI century.

The Sofia Art Gallery (SAG) is a museum with longstanding traditions. Its role is to present the facts of Bulgarian cultural history in an analytical and modern way and to actively intervene in art developments by original and impressive projects. The project curator Dr. Maria Vassileva has invited 43 prominent Bulgarian art and cultural historians belonging to different generations and fields of work (lecturers, researchers, museum curators, directors of art galleries, museums and nongovernmental organizations, art critics, curators and freelance researchers) to each choose an artwork from the Sofia City Art Gallery collection regardless of historical period, genre or media, an artwork they like and consider to be important, justifying their choice in a text comprising a single page. The project aims to look into the factors that single out an artwork as valuable and important for the development of Bulgarian art from today’s perspective; to establish whether selection criteria have changed as compared to the ones applied in decades past; whether the best textbook examples of artworks have stood the test of time; whether the language of art criticism has changed; what is the personal stance of the most prominent Bulgarian art historians. The point is to look closely at an artwork and analyze it both in view of its specific features and the features it shares with other works belonging to the same historical period.

Parallel text in Bulgarian and English. The archaeological investigations in Sboryanovo National Archaeological Reservation are of articular importance for the study of the past of Ancient Thrace. The favorable natural conditions, abundant water sources, lush vegetation, and the animal diversity attracted humans to this region of present-day Bulgaria since time immemorial. Most significant are the remains of the culture of the northern Thracian tribes that are known from the written tradition under the collective name Getae. Imposing tumular necropolis, situated on both sides of an important Thracian city, along the river Krapinets, outline the place of the large political, economic and cultural center of the Getae in present-day Northeastern Bulgaria in the Hellenistic Period. This book presents the work of the author in this area. The author - Associate Professor Maria Chichikova is the archaeologist, under whose leadership in 1982 has revealed the biggest and most delicious secret reserve "Sboryanovo". The book is richly illustrated with photos of finding and architecture diagrams from the area mentioned above.

011080. Petko Khristov Migration and Identity. Historical, Cultural and Linguistic Dimensions of Mobility in the Balkans
This book focuses on the social phenomenon of migrations and human mobility in their socio-cultural, ethnological and linguistic aspects, showing the historical roots, specifics and stages of development, with the example of the Balkans and the diaspora of Balkan people scattered in different directions and on different continents. This issue became even more up-to-date in the last decade of the 20th century, a “decade of transition” for Eastern Europe, characterised by the movement of new waves of emigrants and gastarbeiters to Western Europe, America and Australia. We are faced with an ever increasing diversity and intensity of the movement of people, information, goods and services, both within the separate Balkan states and across their borders. Often, current social processes demonstrate a clear continuity with traditional social practices and cultural patterns; referring to a “Balkan culture of migrations and mobility” is becoming more and more justified.

Broken grounds 1: Mass Communication and Transformation The period in which we live corresponds to an era during which traditional grounds once more breaking both in terms of mass media communication forms and applications and its terms of culture, life forms and social rules. In this study is analyzed the period in which walls are being pulled down, when inter-social relations are passing beyond boundaries, to live together (with different identities and cultures), new social discourse and representations that show attempts to make it a part of a shared future correspond to the transformation of mass communication devices and are affected by its power to transform culture. Broken grounds 2: Intercultural Communication, Multiculturalism In the two-volume book titled “Broken Grounds”, you will find many international and national articles in which you will witness the transformational impact of mass communication and mass media devices. The drive that has initiated the reason for which this book has been prepared in two volumes is to trace the marks of this era on different societies and social layers and to explicate the relationships and communication ways which have emerged from it. The study which brings together the different conceptions in national and international level introduces the new quests to its audience through the route map of communication sciences.

011860. Co. The Turks of Bulgaria: History, Traditions, Culture
Bulgaria is the member of the European Union with the largest Muslim minority that is not exclusively immigrant: Turks havå uninterruptedly lived in these lands for centuries. Both the Ottoman and modern Turkish culture have left a significant impact on the national consciousness and identity of modern Bulgarians. However for many and varied reasons that have to do with political attitudes and propaganda especially during Communism, the influences have been downplayed or ignored. From the aroma of freshly baked borek and borrowed words like keyif, balik and kahir to pehlivan wrestling. Hidrellez songs, and the stories about Nastradin Hodzha and Hitar Petar; from the presence of Jesus in the Qur`an to the scary stories of beans turning into demons; from chotgiya to cholgo and from bulamac to baklava; from the relative calmness of Pax Ottomana to the forcible migrations, name-changings and the so-called Revival Process: The Turks of Bulgaria highlights the history, customs, culture, beliefs, music, cuisine and traditions of the biggest ethnic minority in Bulgaria. The Turks of Bulgaria is a collection of articles by prominent Bulgarian researchers in history, philology, musicology, archaeology, religion and ethnology, who depict Turkish culture in Bulgaria and analyse how it influences Bulgarian culture, to reach the conclusion that drawing strict demarkation lines is difficult and often impossible. It is a book as much about the Turks in Bulgaria as it is about the Bulgarians themselves.

011914. Angel Pachev Sociolinguistics of European Integration. Sociolinguistic Structure of the European Union
The present study examines the unity in the sociolinguistic diversity of the European Union. The European languages are presented as among the few common European achievements which have been fulfilling their European functions for a long time. The latter today constitute the foundation of the sociolinguistic structure of the European Union. In that structure, the languages are changing their original sociolinguistic functions and the language communication in uniting Europe attains new sociolinguistic dimensions which specificity and regional originality fill with meaning and contents the terms “Euroglossia” and “Eurolingualism”, coined to reflect the unity in the sociolinguistic diversity of the linguistic regime of the European Union. The book is intended for specialists in the sphere of sociolinguistics, sociology of language, general and applied linguistics, for psychologists, anthropologists, political and cultural scientists who work in the sphere of European integration, language policy and linguistic human rights protection, but also for a broader circle of readers who are interested in the social being of European languages.

011218. Adriana Oliva, Andrew Short ZooKeys #206. Review of the Berosus Leach of Venezuela (Coleoptera, Hydrophilidae, Berosini) with description of fourteen new species
The water scavenger beetle genus Berosus Leach is the largest of more than 170 genera in the superfamily Hydrophiloidea. Although it is better known that some aquatic beetle groups, many new species in the genus remain to be discovered. This work treats the Berosus of Venezuela—a country that lies at interchange of several major Neotropical regions, including the Andes, the Amazon, the Guiana Shield, and the West Indies. Previously, only nine species of the genus were known from Venezuela, while this work records 36, including fourteen new species. Among these new species are several that are only found in water-filled holes and seepages on ancient granite outcrops in the Guiana Shield region in Amazonas and Bolivar States. Venezuela’s central Llanos, or savannah region, is particularly rich in species. Several species that were previously known only from Brazil have their ranges extended far northward. It is likely additional fieldwork will yield yet even more discoveries.

011988. Christer Hansson, Ekaterina Shevtsova ZooKeys #232. Revision of the European species of Omphale Haliday (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea, Eulophidae)
The European species of Omphale are revised, including 37 species, of which 11 are new. All species are described, thoroughly illustrated, and included in gender-specific identification keys. Two new morphological character-sets are introduced for the classification, male genitalia and wing interference patterns (WIPs). Both sets are used to identify species, and the former is also useful for classification of species-groups. Hosts are known for 14 species and all are primary endoparasitoids of immature stages of gall-midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae). Host preferences are unique for each species, suggesting host specialization as a driving force for speciation. Several of the species are known only from females or have a strong female-biased sex-ratio, indicating thelytokous parthenogenesis. Distributional data point to a pan-European distribution for most species. New synonyms and combinations affect the nomenclature in subfamily Entedoninae.

011987. P Sereno ZooKeys #226. Taxonomy, morphology, masticatory function and phylogeny of heterodontosaurid dinosaurs
This major study on heterodontosaurid dinosaurs is the first to review the taxonomy, morphology, functional anatomy, and phylogeny of this important early radiation of small-bodied herbivores. Heterodontosaurids persisted for approximately 100 My, from Late Triassic to Early Cretaceous time, during which they evolved some of the most sophisticated dentitions for processing plant materials. Some species required reevaluation to establish unequivocally their status as heterodontosaurids, such as Echinodon from rocks in southern England, one of the first and smallest dinosaurs ever described. Tianyulong from northern China is described in more detail in the study and is shown to have unusual skeletal proportions, including a relatively large skull and very short forelimb. A new taxon, Pegomastax africanus gen. n. sp. n., is described from southern Africa with a short parrot-shaped bill. Tooth replacement and tooth-to-tooth wear is more common than previously thought among heterodontosaurids, which the author argues are herbivores despite their prominent caniniform teeth. Heterodontosaurds appear to have split early in their history into a northern group with primitive, subtriangular crowns and a southern group with deeper crown proportions.

Three aviculariine genera endemic to Brazil are revised. Typhochlaena C. L. Koch, 1850 is resurrected, including five species; Pachistopelma Pocock, 1901 includes two species; and Iridopelma Pocock, 1901, six species. Nine species are newly described: Typhochlaena amma sp. n., T. costae sp. n., T. curumim sp. n., T. paschoali sp. n., Pachistopelma bromelicola sp. n., Iridopelma katiae sp. n., I. marcoi sp. n., I. oliveirai sp. n. and I. vanini sp. n. Three new synonymies are established: Avicularia pulchra Mello-Leitao, 1933 and Avicularia recifiensis Struchen & Brandle, 1996 are junior synonyms of Pachistopelma rufonigrum Pocock, 1901 syn. n., and Avicularia palmicola Mello-Leitao, 1945 is a junior synonym of Iridopelma hirsutum Pocock, 1901 syn. n. Pachistopelma concolor Caporiacco, 1947 is transferred to Tapinauchenius Ausserer, 1871, making the new combination Tapinauchenius concolor (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. n. Lectotypes are newly designed for Pachistopelma rufonigrum Pocock, 1901 , Iridopelma hirsutum Pocock, 1901 and Pachistopelma concolor Caporiacco, 1947. Cladistic analyses using both equal and implied weights were carried out with a matrix comprising 62 characters and 38 terminal taxa. The chosen cladogram found with X-Pee-Wee and concavity 6 suggests they are monophyletic. All species are keyed and mapped and information on species habitat and area cladograms are presented. Discussion on biogeography and conservation is provided.

A revision and the first phylogenetic analysis of the widely distributed plant bug genus Tytthus is presented. All 24 species of this genus, including five described as new, prey exclusively on planthopper (Delphacidae) eggs, making them of great importance on agricultural monocots. Two species have been used successfully in biocontrol programs to suppress populations of sugarcane delphacid on sugarcane and brown planthopper on rice. All species of Tytthus are relatively small, but the tiny brachypterous males of one species, ranging from 1.08–1.30 mm long, rank it as possibly the world’s smallest known plant bug. Members of this genus are found in nearly all biogeographic regions, including 18 restricted to the Nearctic and Neotropics and three from the eastern Oriental and Indo-Pacific regions. There are also two Holarctic and one circumtropical (Afrotropical, Neotropical, and Oriental) species. A hypothesized relationship with several Nearctic plant bug genera suggests a New World origin for this group of important predatory bugs.

011219. Vladimir Blagoderov, Vincent Smith ZooKeys #209. No specimen left behind: mass digitization of natural history collections. Special Issue
Centuries of exploration and discovery have documented the diversity of life on Earth. Records of this biodiversity are, for the most part, distributed across varied and distinct natural history collections worldwide. This makes the task of extracting and mobilising the information within these collections an immense challenge. In this special issue of ZooKeys, 18 papers by 81 authors examine progress and prospects for mass digitising entire natural history collections. These papers provide a snapshot of activity, in what is a fast moving field that is seeing ever-increasing degrees of collaboration across disciplines and between collection-based institutions. Examples of research covered by these articles include a description to efforts digitise 30 million plant, invertebrate and vertebrate specimens at NCB Naturalis in the Netherlands; new scanning and telemicroscopy solutions to digitise the millions of pinned insect specimens held in the Australian National Insect Collection and its European and North American counterparts; citizen science projects being used to crowdsource the transcription of thousands of specimen labels and field notebooks; and new data portals providing central access to millions of biological specimens across Europe. Many of these projects deal with the unique challenges associated with major collections that have built up over several centuries, with different communities of practices and different user communities. Despite many differences, standards for collection acquisition, preservation and documentation are broadly consistent, meaning that there is sufficient common ground to bring together the enormous amounts of data that are being exposed through mass digitisation efforts. These data will become the new frontier for natural history collection management and research in the next decade.

The New World species of the subgenera Allotrichoma Becker and Neotrichoma (new subgenus) (genus Allotrichoma) are revised. For phylogenetic perspective to this revision, we studied all genus-group taxa within the tribe Hecamedini and reassessed their cladistic relationships. Our phylogenetic study for taxa within the genus Allotrichoma was done at the species-group level, and we attempted to approach this globally by examining species from throughout the world and placing them into appropriate species groups. Within Allotrichoma, we recognize three subgenera. All known species from the New World are described with an emphasis on structures of the male terminalia, which are fully illustrated. We more than double the number of species known from the New World with six of 12 species in the subgenus Allotrichoma being described herein, and in a newly described subgenus, Neotrichoma, two of the three species from the New World are also described.

This revision significantly documents a continuing trend in the discovery and documentation of New World shore flies (Diptera: Ephydridae). Two genera of the tribe Discocerinini are treated: Facitrichophora, new genus, with all four included species being newly described, and Polytrichophora Cresson with 19 species, including 11 that are newly described. Previously, eight species were known from the New World. The authors emphasize structures of the male terminalia, which are fully described and illustrated, in the recognition of species and species groups. In addition, detailed locality data and distribution maps for all species are provided. Much of this increase has resulted from a greatly improved sampling of the New World fauna, which documents an ongoing need for field work and better taxon sampling of earth’s shore-fly fauna.

011057. Petur Beron Checklist and Bibliography of the fauna of Acari (Arachnida) in Bulgaria
Acarological studies in Bulgaria start in 1907 (water mites) and 1921 (terrestrial mites). So far 1673 species of Acari (Acariformes and Parasitiformes) have been reported (252 Acaridida, 420 Oribatida, 616 Prostigmata, 344 Mesostigmata and 44 Ixodida). They belong to 630 genera and 213 families. The real number of mites species living in Bulgaria is expected to exceed 3000. The checklist is preceded by a short review of the history of the acarological research and is followed by a bibliography of 477 titles. The systematic position of many taxa is made up-to-date and many names are introduced for the first time in Bulgarian acarological literature. Most Bulgarian acarologists either died, or retired and are no more fully active. New acarologists are needed.

012161. Magdalina Stancheva Stefan Kanchev - Logo Book
This is the first detailed study of the work of Bulgarian graphic designer Stefan Kanchev (1915 – 2001), the artist behind more than 2,000 logos. As an artist in a socialist country, he enjoyed a career that no western designer could even dream of, receiving state commissions with astonishing constancy and frequency. Many large and well-known companies and institutions in Bulgaria adorned themselves with his logos, a large portion of which have withstood the test of time and continue to be used, imprinted on the national consciousness to such a degree that erasing them would be unthinkable. His life’s work is documented in this book, insofar as it was possible to find the materials today and gather his numerous sketches and drawings. It illustrates why and how Stefan Kanchev has earned himself the reputation of one of the most notable masters of logotype of our time. “In his work, he was a lone wolf, possessed by his art, but at the table he was a Bohemian. Eccentric in conversation, he likely seemed endlessly arrogant to some. But he was a genius. At the time, only an Anton Stankowski, if we stay in Germany, or the American Paul Rand could match his heights. But the Iron Curtain hid him from our eyes! The moment has long since come for us to take heed to that which the West could not see and appreciate for political reasons or due to an inflated sense of self-worth.” Prof. Roland Henss, Germany

012232. Diana Yankova Legal Englishes: The discourse of statutory texts
Diana Yankova, Ph.D., is currently Associate Professor at the English Studies Department, New Bulgarian University, Sofia. What follows is an endeavor to delineate, classify and characterize statutory texts in English contingent on the various legal contexts they originate in. It is an interdisciplinary applied linguistics study straddling the border of language and comparative law that requires expertise in both fields and calls for the taxing task of applying both legal and linguistic methods of analysis. The stimulus for researching this topic was engendered by the fact that the language of statutory instruments in English is commonly considered a monolithic genre without taking stock of the numerous contextual and textual variables that leave their imprint on the end product - an act written in the English language.

The edition is separated in 3 parts. Part 1: "Micro-computed tomography: Introducing new dimensions to taxonomy". Continuous improvements in the resolution of three-dimensional imaging have led to an increased application of these techniques in conventional taxonomic research in recent years. Coupled with an ever increasing research effort in cybertaxonomy, three-dimensional imaging could give a boost to the development of virtual specimen collections, allowing rapid and simultaneous access to accurate virtual representations of type material. This paper explores the potential of micro-computed tomography (X-ray micro-tomography), a non-destructive three-dimensional imaging technique based on mapping X-ray attenuation in the scanned object, for supporting research in systematics and taxonomy. The subsequent use of these data as virtual type material, so-called “cybertypes”, and the creation of virtual collections lie at the core of this potential. Sample preparation, image acquisition, data processing and presentation of results are demonstrated using polychaetes (bristle worms), a representative taxon of macro-invertebrates, as a study object. Effects of the technique on the morphological, anatomical and molecular identity of the specimens are investigated. The paper evaluates the results and discusses the potential and the limitations of the technique for creating cybertypes. It also discusses the challenges that the community might face to establish virtual collections. Potential future applications of three-dimensional information in taxonomic research are outlined, including an outlook to new ways of producing, disseminating and publishing taxonomic information. Part 2: "Two new species of Lecithoceridae (Lepidoptera, Gelechioidea), with a revised check list of the family in Taiwan". Two species of Lecithoceridae (Lepidoptera, Gelechioidea), Caveana senuri sp. n. and Lecithocera dondavisi sp. n., are described from Taiwan. The monotypic Caveana Park was described from Thailand, based on C. diemseoki Park, 2011. Lecithocera Herrich-Schaffer, 1853 is the most diverse genus of the family, comprising more than 300 species worldwide. L. dondavisi sp. n. is the largest species of the genus so far, and closely resembles the Indian species, L. praeses Meyrick, 1919. A revised check list of the family in Taiwan is provided. Part 3: "Further notes on New Zealand Enantiobuninae (Opiliones, Neopilionidae), with the description of a new genus and two new species". Mangatangi parvum gen. n. and sp. and Forsteropsalis pureroa sp. n. are described from the North Island of New Zealand. Pantopsalis listeri (White 1849) and P. cheliferoides (Colenso 1882) are redescribed and no longer regarded as nomina dubia; P. luna (Forster 1944) is identified as a junior synonym of P. listeri. A key to Pantopsalis species is provided.

The book is devoted to the complex modelling of the microstructural alteration during hot metal forming with controlled cooling – the so-called Thermomechanical Treatment (TMT) and its influence on the mechanical properties of the final product. The simulation of the total thermomechanical schedule is realized using non-formal approaches and is computerized by the Finite Element Method. The application of this technique leads to reliable basis for realistic prediction and ruling of the steel and aluminium alloys treatment. In this way using of Computer Aided Simulation (CAS) is becoming necessary in the area of multipurpose design of metallurgical processes.

The first monuments associated with ancient navigation in the Bulgarian west coast, enter the collection of the National Museum of History (NMH) back in 1978. These are pole anchors found during a regular archaeological expedition near the Kaliakra cape. Objects found by Bozhidar Dimitrov only 3 feet deep in the vicinity of the Black Sea nose. In the following decades until 2012 the collection of "sea" items increased to 155. Undoubtedly, the greatest merit for compiling the collection of stone and wooden elements of ancient anchors is namely Prof. Dimitrov’s. His discoveries were first documented as early as 1967, when with the artist Aleksandur Denkov found two anchors near the island of St. St. Kirik and Iulita (Lazarov 1975, 43). Since 1987 the first NHM underwater expeditions begun near Sozopol, which are associated with the opening of dozens of anchors and stocks. This catalog is the first attempt to present the richness of the Bulgarian museum monuments of the culture maritime shipping.

012381. Rositsa Malcheva - Zlatkova Balchik / Balchic
We are witnessing a renewed in historical exitics, somewhat ignored, somewhat ridiculed, somewhat deliberatelly neglected. Here we have a confirmation of such positive trend in the reading public. This book gives us a refreshing assurance that books can be written with imagination, information, and accuracy. Everything that a good and fascinating historical reading needs. Its story is familiar and mysterious, true and fictitious at the same time. The coast of semi-legendary place in a sea town is the witness of a personal and global drama. Reshaping of Balkan and European boundaries, battles and negotiations, diplomacy and cruelty, the whirlwind of a war, first called the Great, and later more sensibly World War I, is presented in miniatures of humaneness compared to world historical misfortunes. On this background, the author accumulates such diverse and differently sourced information, combines dynamic reality with human emotions and silent love, which becomes a part of historical existence. We can find everything in this book – Balkan temperament and endless love for Homeland, sophisticated social manners and the anguish of personal insecurity of Queen Marie. You can see in it more than you have imagined you knew about the town of Balchik, about the sea, about the untold drama of a woman with a calling to be a queen of a foreign country. The Palace in Balchik, the town itself, the Black Sea, and the Bulgarian lands acquire a special zest. This book opens a page where the places you have senn or you will see by the sea shine with new light and new importance.

012473. Co. 120 Years Bulgarian Art (unions, societies, groups 1892 - 2012)
The book presents the research efforts of a team of famous specialists in the area of the Bulgarian art. It is unique of its type as it makes for the first time complete view on the Bulgarian art and on the most eminent names from the history of the Bulgarian art. But it is not the usual history – it presents a new point of view on the fate of the paintings, drawings and sculpture as well as on the nontraditional innovational plastic and visual forms in Bulgaria, traced through the prism of the organizational forms of the art life, reasons of their emergence, their aesthetic platforms and activities from 1892 till today. The concrete reasons for publishing of this book are the 120th anniversary from the organization of the first common exhibition of painters from Bulgaria (1892), the establishment of the first union of painters called “Company for Supporting the Arts in Bulgaria” (1893) as well as 80 years from the establishment of the Union of the Companies of Painters in Bulgaria (1931). Thanks to its exhaustive text, visual and meaningful material, the book will be useful as a reliable information basis for those who are interested in the development of the plastic arts in Bulgaria for the last 120 years.

012601. Kelly Sendall, Sergio I. Salazar-Vallejo ZooKeys #286 (2013) Special Issue: Revision of Sternaspis Otto, 1821 (Polychaeta, Sternaspidae)
Sternaspid polychaetes are common and often abundant in soft bottoms in the world oceans. Some authors suggest that only one species should be recognized, whereas others regard a few species as widely distributed in many seas and variable depths from the low intertidal to about 4400 m. There are some problems with species delineation and the distinctive ventro-caudal shield has been disregarded or barely used for identifying species. In order to clarify these issues, the ventral shield is evaluated in specimens from the same locality and its diagnostic potential is confirmed. On this basis, a revision of Sternaspis Otto, 1821 (Polychaeta: Sternaspidae) is presented based upon type materials, or material collected from type localities. The sternaspid body, introvert hooks and shield show three distinct patterns, two genera have seven abdominal segments and tapered introvert hooks, and one genus has eight abdominal segments and spatulate introvert hooks. The ventro-caudal shield has three different patterns: stiff with ribs, and sometimes concentric lines, stiff with feebly-defined ribs but no concentric lines, and soft with firmly adhered sediment particles. Sternaspis is restricted to include species with seven abdominal segments, falcate introvert hooks, and stiff shields, often exhibiting radial ribs, concentric lines or both. The geographic range of most species appears to be much smaller than previously indicated, and for some species additional material in good condition is needed to clarify their distributions. Keys to genera and to all species are also included.

012602. Menno Reemer, Gunilla Stahls ZooKeys 288 (2013) Special Issue: Generic revision and species classification of the Microdontinae (Diptera, Syrphidae)
With 552 species group names available (excluding misspellings), the Microdontinae constitute the smallest of the three subfamilies of Syrphidae. Paradoxically, this subfamily is taxonomically the least organized of the three: 388 species names were previously classified in a single genus, Microdon Meigen, 1803. The present paper introduces a new generic classification of the Microdontinae, relying partly on the results of phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular data as published in other papers, and partly on examination of primary type specimens of 347 taxa, plus additional material, and original descriptions. A total number of 67 genus group names (excluding misspellings) are evaluated, redescribed, diagnosed and discussed, with several implications for their taxonomic status. Of these, 43 names are considered as valid genera, 7 as subgenera, 17 as synonyms. Two generic names (Ceratoconcha Simroth, 1907, Nothomicrodon Wheeler, 1924) are left unplaced, because they are known from immature stages only and cannot be reliably associated with taxa known from adults. The following 10 new genera are described by Reemer: Domodon, Heliodon, Laetodon, Menidon, Mermerizon, Metadon, Peradon, Piruwa, Sulcodon and Thompsodon. A key to all genera, subgenera and species groups is given. A total number of 26 new species are described. A total number of 267 new combinations of species and genera are proposed. New synonyms are proposed for 19 species group names. An attempt is made to classify all available species names into (sub)genera and species groups. The resulting classification comprises 454 valid species and 98 synonyms (excluding misspellings), of which 17 valid names and three synonyms are left unplaced. The paper concludes with a discussion on diagnostic characters of Microdontinae.

012605. Michael G. Branstetter ZooKeys 295 (2013) Special Issue. Revision of the Middle American clade of the ant genus Stenamma Westwood (Hymenoptera, Formicidae, Myrmicinae)
Stenamma is a cryptic “leaf-litter” ant genus that occurs in mesic forest habitats throughout the Holarctic region, Central America, and part of northwestern South America (Colombia and Ecuador). The genus was thought to be restricted primarily to the temperate zone, but recent collecting efforts have uncovered a large radiation of Neotropical forms, which rival the Holarctic species in terms of morphological and behavioral diversity. By inferring a broad-scale molecular phylogeny of Stenamma, Branstetter (2012) showed that all Neotropical species belong to a diverse Middle American clade (MAC), and that this clade is sister to an almost completely geographically separated Holarctic clade (HOC). Here, the Middle American clade of Stenamma is revised to recognize 40 species, of which 33 are described as new. Included in the revision are a key to species based on the worker caste, and for each species where possible, descriptions and images of workers and queens, images of males, information on geographic distribution, descriptions of intraspecific variation, and notes on natural history. Several species groups are defined, but the majority of species remain unassigned due to a lack of diagnostic morphological character states for most molecular clades.

This collection incorporates selected texts of various types, including: – conference papers; – materials intended for national projects or programs; – scientifi c articles; – international projects; – theoretical works; – communications. The compiler’s idea is to provide a mirror-like picture of the developments in the Bulgarian library-information sector on the basis of the above texts; to outline the trends of development of this sector during this period; to present some theoretical works containing projections and different policies that could be implemented within the library-and-information spectrum. This publication is intended for university lecturers,students, researchers and experts who are interested in the problems of the Bulgarian library-information sector against the background of the changes that occur in some other parts of the world. A large majority of the texts have already been presented at international conferences and some other forums abroad. The texts have been prepared and published in different periods of time. Most of them have been incorporated into international publications. A large number of the texts contain similar ideas, facts and analyses. All this has been done with a view to assessing the evolution of the standpoints and changes and to getting a better idea of the authors’ texts, as well as of the ones included in this publication.

012805. Iva Doseva Early Byzantine and medieval sculpture in Sozopol
The state of the lapidary monuments in Sozopol is dynamic: some appear as a result of ongoing constructional works, others disappear. Particularly indicative is the fact of the existence of the Southern Fortress Wall and Tower Complex and its Museum Collection, which is a private venture. The walls of the Museum complex abound in 'spolia' gathered from various archaeological sites (cf. fig. XlVb). Samples from the Bishop's Church are also part of the collection of this museum. Thus being severely endangered, due to different circumstances, the lapidary monuments from Sozopol cry for a systematic study and - most of all - for publication of all existing samples of the architectural sculpture there. I am firmly convinced that the form of a catalogue would be the most appropriate from in view of the goal. From the variety of criteria, according to which the material can be structured (date, origin, decoration etc.), I chose to present the monuments after their function. I believe that this approach allows best the tracing of the development of architectural sculpture over the centuries at one particular area. And above all, the aim of this study is to create a comparatively exhaustive 'database' for future research. This study is based on the existing academic achievements on Early Byzantine and Medieval sculpture, chiefly in Constantinople. A starting point for any study are Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, consecrated in 537; the Church of the Holy Virgin Pammakaristos (Fetiyeh Camii), 12th century; the church of Theotokos at the Monastery of Constantine Lips (Fenari Isa Camii), consecrated in 907; the church of Holy Saviour in the Chora Monastery (Kahriye Camii), 1 Ith-I2th century, reconstructed c. 1316 to 1321. These examples are correlative to diverse aspects of art of the period in view and thus to that of the Bulgarian capitals of Preslav and Veliko Turnovo as well as other towns… /From the introduction - the author/

012962. Evgeniia Gencheva - ed. The Everyday Life of the Roman Legionary on the Lower Danube. Catalogue of the exhibition : XXII International Limes Congress, Rousse
This book is the catalog of the exhibition “The Everyday Life of the Roman Legionary on the Lower Danube”, organized by the National Archaeological Institute with Museum – Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The subject of the exhibition is prompted by the collected finds from the excavation of a number of military camps. The main significance here is the finds, discovered at Novae during the 50 years of excavation by a Bulgarian-Polish team. Judging by the finds it is impressing how extremely rich the everyday life of the Roman fighter was. The materials from the 1st century show that initially the warriors came with their vessels and household, produced in the large workshops in Italy that supplied the army. According to their origin the distribution of the finds of terra sigillata is as follows: 33% are Late Padana, 25% Arretine, 25% South Gaulish and 17% Eastern Mediterranean.

012755. Snezhana Rakova The Fourth Crusade in the Historical Memory of the Eastern Orthodox Slavs
The Fourth Crusade in the Historical Memory of the Eastern Orthodox Slavs addresses the unexplored area of the Eastern Orthodox Slavs’ documented attitudes towards the Fourth Crusade and the sack of Constantinople in 1204. Snezhana Rakova has amassed and analyzed all the relevant documents known today originating from Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Moldova, that give the picture as seen by contemporaries, followed by its evolution (or lack of such), making it influential until the 18th c. Comparisons are made with relevant Greek and West European sources. The author deals with a rich variety of narratives, i.e. chronicles, hagiography, prophecies, official and ecclesiastical correspondence, and epigraphy; she infers on the historical consciousness of the Mediaeval Slavs, their political propaganda and religious identity. Five of the most revealing texts are appended, both in their original Old Slavonic version and in English translation: The Anonymous Russian Account of the Capture of Constantinople by the Franks, Archbishop Antony of Novgorod’s Pilgrim’s Book, The Nikon Chronicle (Excerpts), A Serbian Sixteenth-Century Chronograph (Excerpts), and The Brancovic Chronicle (Excerpts).

012770. Liudmila Filipova The Parchment Maze
The Parchment Maze" is an archival suspense thriller, which topped national best-seller lists for years and which is currently in its sixth reprinting. In 2012, "National Geographic" made a film based on the book and featuring the author, entitled "Sword in the Stone & the Orpheus Amulet". The novel combines real archeological evidence plus a healthy jolt of fantasy. "The Parchment Maze" itself has a curious history – created in 2007 and published in January of 2009, could its sensational discoveries be the true and unacknowledged source of the literary angel-mania that swept the globe? "The Parchment Maze" offers readers a totally new way to look at human history and theories about the angelic ones. Some see them as saints and deities, while great artists such as Ovid, Dante and Orpheus described them as “shades.” Thousands of others have called them angels, but few have ever descended to the bowels of the earth to discover their true faces. Today, however, for the first time, a human being is close to grasping their true essence. While studying similarities between Christianity and Thracian Orphism, archeologist Vera Kandilova stumbles across perplexing symbols tied to a prehistoric Balkan civilization that mysteriously disappeared 5,000 years ago. What begins as a purely academic scavenger hunt across Germany, Russia, Italy and Bulgaria leads her to frescoes in the Roman catacombs, a medieval amulet, engraved golden tablets, prehistoric clay vessels and ultimately to a cryptic manuscript called The Parchment Maze. The intellectual puzzle quickly gets visceral – after a series of murders, thefts of valuable artifacts and a kidnapping, the clues show Vera the path to uncovering the secret of the legendary incorporeal ones – those who jealously guard the most ancient knowledge from humanity and grant insight only to enlightened individuals such as Jesus and Orpheus. Their secrets have been sought over the centuries by powerful scientists and politicians, including Hitler, numerous popes, secret services and military organizations. Vera is determined to follow a trail of clues to the Lower Kingdom before the handsome assassin Ariman, with pale skin and colorful eyes, can obliterate them – and Vera herself. An underground brotherhood led by the ghoulish Incorporeal One has raised Ariman to be a cold-blooded automaton. However, the merciless killer is also on a secret mission of his own – the only thing that could possibly tempt him from his path is love, since angels are capable of loving as no human being can…

Parallel text in Bulgarian and English. The democratic process of opening up of Bulgaria after 1989 as well as the economic conditions of life and the lack of adequate education caused the exodus of a large part of the creative intelligentsia.

Today numerous artists of Bulgarian origin live and work successfully in Vienna. It is this vibrant and current reality that provided motivation for the exhibition. The exhibition showcases 18 of them: Adriana Czernin (special participation), Plamen Dejanoff (special participation), Mara Mattuschka (special participation), Svetozara Aleksandrova, Borjana Ventzislavova, Vasilena Gankovska, Irina Georgieva, Nestor Kovachev, Lazar Lyutakov, Michail Michailov, Alexandar Peev, Maximilian Pramatarov, Krasimira Stikar, Kamen Stoyanov, Kosta Tonev, Iv Toshain, Desislava Unger and Sevda Chkoutova. Their art reflects on two realities – the old (while living in Bulgaria) and the new country (in Austria) thus having the dynamic mark of the times we are living in.

Contemporary Practices at the Beginning of the 21st Century” is meant to not only present quality artworks but also to analyze certain social and historical processes that are typical for the time.

Parallel text in Bulgarian and English. This is a catalog from a exhibition which celebrates the 80th anniversary of the birth of Lyuben Dimanov – a prominent artist of diverse talents, as testified by his noteworthy contribution to various art genres and respectable presence on both the Bulgarian and the European art scenes. Lyuben Dimanov’s art is among the most significant phenomena in Bulgarian visual arts. One of the leading figures having blazed the trail of new approaches to visual art in the 1960’s, he left a mark that contributed to the development of graphic arts and illustration in our country, creating idiosyncratic, memorable and monumental imagery. The tamed energy of his etchings or water colors, paintings, collages or illustrations move the viewer with its forcefulness and conclusiveness, as well as with the fine nuances of subtle sensitivity. Dimanov’s drawing, which is decorative and elevated, powerful and exquisite at the same time, is not only an introduction to the art of depiction, but also a bridge to spirituality. The SCAG exhibition features selected works belonging to the genres of painting, graphic arts, drawing and collage, presenting various periods of Lyuben Dimanov’s artistic development, starting from the early 1960’s through to the present day. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a 10-piece series of paintings devoted to the ten commandments. Bibliophile editions such as “The Flowers of Evil”, “Sonnets”, “The Divine Comedy”, “When Flame and Rose Become One” are reminiscent of the highest peaks of the artist’s career in book design and illustration. Staying true to his identity in both his early works created in Bulgaria and his mature works created in Paris, the artist reveals the product of years-long artistic development, constituting a blend of expressiveness and spiritual messages.

013505. Co. The Western Gate of Serdica
As a result of the archaeological excavations resumed in 2011, the Western Gate site of Serdica gained great public and academic popularity and occupied its rightful place on the archaeological map of modern Sofia. The archaeological excavations carried out in the period 1974-1980 brought to light the western gate of the city, the northern pentagonal gate tower attached to it, parts of the curtain wall and a triangular tower. Layers dated back to the Early and Late Medieval periods were excavated. Late Roman layers (the 4th - the 6th century) were reached at various parts of the site. The new discoveries confirmed some of the observations made in the past, specified others and contested part of the hypotheses on the life in Serdica in the Roman, Early Byzantine and Medieval periods. The large scale archaeological excavations carried out in Sofia in the recent years shed light on aspects of the early history of Serdica unknown until present.

014215. Ivan D. Bulgaria, terra europeansis incognita
Conceived originally as a tool for familiarizing Western intellectuals with the rich history and culture of Bulgaria and its people, the book presents as well – albeit briefly – the other Balkan nationalities and their interrelations. The case is made for the injustice wrought upon the country by the Great Powers, such that within the last 130 years or so since its liberation from the Ottoman yoke it has been splintered into multiple pieces, each donated to a different neighbor. Specifically, the call is justified for unification between Bulgaria and its southwestern part that is known under the name of Republic of Macedonia, or FYROM. Of particular interest to the socio-politically active Intelligentsia is the second part of the book dealing extensively with the plight of the country in modern times. In order to introduce the background of all current difficulties, first a comparative analysis is offered – unique, we believe – of the positive and negative effects on all essential components of everyday life, under Communism vs. under Democracy. Then, after a comprehensive review of the “Transition to Democracy,” the reasons for failing to establish a truly just and fair society where law and order should prevail are discussed. The case is presented as though such a situation is not necessarily unique for Bulgaria but in fact is characteristic for all former Soviet Bloc countries, to a various extent of the unfairness and injustice, and with the colorful nuances typical for each individual nation. Given the country is an EU member, a good deal of attention is dedicated to the potential contribution of that status to improvement of the current total mess, characterizing Bulgaria in terms of its economy, political process, judicial practices, etc., all plagued by corruption and inefficiency, and judged destined for doom less radical changes are effectuated as immediately as possible. Ditto about the Bulgarian national psyche, utterly depressed at best, for the last 20 years, after the brief spate of jubilation, in the wake of the “velvet revolution.” The conclusion drawn here is not in favor of continuing that EU membership, surprising and unpleasant as this might sound to many a reader. Once having identified the faulty design, the roadmap for correcting the situation is proposed next. Both the economic and political aspects are reviewed, separately and in their strong interdependence and perpetual interaction. The proposed new model is unique and worthy of the name “revolutionary.” While the aspect of economics may be more suitable for, and certainly easier applicable to, the small former Soviet satellite states, the part of politics is viewed as a prerequisite for a step towards true democracy in any nation. Hence this writing offers a Project, to the Bulgarians, but as well an idea for a System, to the democratic-minded intellectuals of this world, and specifically to the Intelligentsia within the EU, currently devoid of an ideology appealing to the masses.

014160. Nikola Mikhov Forget your past. Communist-Era Monuments in Bulgaria
This book traces the fate of the most important communist-era monuments in Bulgaria, from their construction to this day. The book contains 34 photographs and detailed information about the history of the monuments, compiled by the author over the course of three years. The title of the book is borrowed from graffiti written over the entrance of the Memorial House of the Bulgarian Communist Party at Buzludja, which poignantly illustrates the fate of the communist-era monuments in Bulgaria. Conceived as expressions of national pride and reverence, most of them today are looted and neglected. Whether they commemorate the feats of the Soviet Army, the April Uprising of 1876, or the Serbo-Bulgarian War of 1885, they all share a common fate – to be silent symbols of a forgotten past.

Drawing on the monsters and myths of Balkan folklore, the brutal reality of the Communist regime and the dazzling magic of Enev's own imagination, these stories have a surreal and almost hypnotic quality. Absurd, both painfully funny and deeply sad, Circus Bulgaria reaches straight into the cracked heart of Eastern Europe.

A grandson tries to buy the corpse of Lenin on eBay or his Communist grandfather. A failed wunderkind steals a golden cross from an Orthodox church. A boy meets his cousin (the love of his life) once every five years in the river that divides their village into east and west. These are Miroslav Penkov's strange, unexpectedly moving visions of his home country, Bulgaria, and they are the stories that make up his beguiling and deeply felt debut. In East of the West, Penkov writes with great empathy of centuries of tumult; his characters mourn the way things were and long for things that will never be. But even as they wrestle with the weight of history, with the debt to family, with the pangs of exile, the stories in East of the West are always light on their feet, animated by Penkov's unmatched eye for the absurd.

015093. Co. Svetilishte na trakiiskiia konnik krai Sostra
Parallel text in Bulgarian and English. In August 2012, the National Museum of History funded archaeological explorations in Kalugerskoto locality, on the land of the village of Leshnitsa, in the region of Lovech. The archaeologists were led by Assoc. Prof. Ivan Christov with Assoc. Prof. Sergey Torbatov as consultant and Bilyana Ivanova and Stilian Ivanov as deputy team leaders. Villagers from Leshnitsa and Lomets as well as students from the University of Library Studies and Information Technologies, So?a joined the work. The digs came to continue the long years of archaeological explorations of the roadside Sostra complex, situated on the Roman cursus publicus from Oescus to Philippopolis. The chance the site to be studied thoroughly, to establish its dating and planning and come to a satisfactory scienti?c interpretation predetermined the necessity for a comprehensive publication of the results. The fact that the shrine at Sostra is among just a few thoroughly studied religious places related to the veneration of one of the most popular Roman deities, the Thracian Horseman, shows the original contribution of the lines below. The research is not of regional scope alone. It successfully fits in the whole range of problems regarding the exploration of out-of-town sanctuaries of the Roman days in the Balkans. Structurally, the book includes several chapters on the history of the explorations, the planning and the interpretation of the offerings found in the sanctuary (coins, votive tablets, jewels, earthenware and osseous remains). The text is accompanied by abundant photos and plans of the stages of the explorations. The movable cultural artifacts acquired in the course of the explorations were handed over to the Museum of Traditional Crafts and Applied Arts in the town of Trojan, where all the finds from Sostra castellum and its immediate vicinity as well as from the region of Trojan as a whole are kept. The book offers an opportunity for the general public to get familiarized with part of the riches of the museum in Trojan.

015075. Plamen Petrov Uchiteliat. Retrospektivna izlozhba na Mikhail Krustev (1877-1956) / The Teacher. Retrospective Exhibition of Michail Krastev (1877-1956)
Artist of the small size format, excellent portraitist and good landscape painter, Mihail Krustev, although living and working in the period between the two world wars, turned out to be related to art in Bulgaria in the first decade of the XX century. In the times of active and diverse artistic life Krustev stands somewhat detached from both the impact of secession, and the influence of expressionism and Neue Sachlichkeit. His works are not a turning point in art, but they are lyrical, unpretentious, spontaneous and light – exciting today, too. Maybe their charm lies exactly in their simplicity. Mihail Krustev, the first art teacher of the patron of the gallery Vaska Emanuilova, was born in the town of Pirot. He is brother of Dr.Krustyo Krustev – one of the most prominent figures in the sphere of culture during the Third Bulgarian Kingdom, and founder of the circle Thought. Having completed his primary education in Sofia, he headed to Berlin, where he studied Architecture, and later on Graphics at Universitat der Kunste Berlin. Not finishing his education, he returned to Bulgaria and joined the National School of Drawing in the special painting course of Yaroslav Veshin. Despite his solid artistic training, he never wholly immersed in the world of art, but devoted himself to the teacher calling. He taught his first drawing lessons to Vaska Emanuilova, Vera Lukova, Boris Angelushev and many other prominent Bulgarian artists. He was never able to realize his solo exhibition. That is why this exhibition is the first ever attempt to fully illuminate and research the artistic heritage of one of the pioneers in Bulgarian graphic art – Mihail Krustev. The exhibition includes works from the collections of the Sofia City Art Gallery, the Bulgarian National Museum of Fine Arts, Plovdiv City Art Gallery, Gallery – Kazanlak, National Literary Museum – Sofia, and Hristina Koleva private collection.

Elena Kostova's Medieval Melnik from the End of the 12th to the End of the 14th Century: The Historical Vicissitudes of a Small Balkan Town makes available to the English-speaking scholars one of the very Jew comprehensive studies of medieval Balkan urban settlements. Using exhaustively the written sources of the period, Kostova deftly integrates information from topography, archaeology, art history, and architecture as well as sheds light on the evolution of Melnik, a small but strategically located urban center in the south-central Balkans during the High and Late Middle Ages. The gist of the account is political history, a dramatic story of the incessant struggle between the three local political heavyweights, Bulgaria, Byzantium, and Serbia, and a series of local magnates, Jor controlling the town. The approach is dictated by the nature of the available evidence, but the scarce sources permit glimpses into Melniks economic, ethnic, and ecclesiastical evolution as well. Although strictly local in scope, the study highlights the characteristics of a typical urban center in the Balkans, and permits comparisons with similar settlements in Byzantium, Catholic Europe, and the Middle East. Students of medieval urbanism and historians interested in the late medieval Balkans will find Kostova s work an instructive contribution to their knowledge of the region and its specifics. Dr. Kiril Petkov, Associate Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls

015074. Pravdoliub Ivanov Transformation Always Takes Time and Energy
The works of Pravdoliub Ivanov revolve around phenomena of spatiality in which norms are disrupted and trompe l’oeil effects are inserted into an everyday visual vocabulary. By intermingling public and private moments, the artist transfers private matters into the realm of the gallery or art space, tying in specific architectural tropes as he does so. Ivanov plays with irritating elements: he uses ironic gestures taken from mundane and incidental everyday situations to evoke a heightened awareness for routine encounters that might otherwise often go unnoticed. The juxtaposition of unusual objects and materials forms the basis for Ivanov’s installations, which generally tend to produce uncanny moments for their viewers. In keeping with the Freudian concept of the uncanny, these are phenomena that seem familiar and foreign at the same time. /Walter Seidl/

When a memory was kept between these two covers, that is eternal" /Rumen Manov/.

015182. Evgenii Dainov, Petar Sturm Konstantinov Politics: À Reader
This Reader aims to reveal the ideals and the principles, on which modern societies are based. These are, of course, political in the sense that they underpin the life of the polis - of that political society, in which people live, in which people live, communicate and interact as citizens. Dealing with modern societies, the story here is the story of the West. The West is based on equality and the respect of human rights and civic freedoms. Elsewhere, it is power, traditions or religions that from the basis of human rights and human organisation. The Reader traces the evolution of this right from the beginning - from from the philosopher Plato - to thinkers still living and thriving, such as Amartya Sen and Francis Fukuyama. Naturally, The Reader also includes the major challenges to the values and principles of the West, as voiced for example by totalitarian and fundamentalist thinkers.

015181. Irina Genova Modern art in Bulgaria : First histories and present narratives beyond the paradigm of modernity
Irina Genova has greatly contributed to the wider knowledge about Bulgarian art: thanks to her exhibitions, studies, texts, catalogues, books and lectures all over Europe and America, Bulgarian art - particularly from the first half of the XX century - was put in the European, first of all Balkan context, and was compared with similar phenomena in the region. To achieve this, Genova has also studied all the movements and major personalities from neighboring countries. By doing so, she has accumulated great knowledge and experience, and I am happy to say that she is surely one of the most informed, influential and best interpreters of the Balkan art scene in the 1920s and 1930s. Genova is looking for similar ambiances, close poetics of various artists, their differences and oppositions, their encounters and communication in the last century so that her final results show high profile of an art historians approach and method of cultural studies. Her works are at the same time full of data and impregnated with theoretical and aesthetical points of views. This method of approach ensured her very high position in the international milieus: she is often invited to present her research in various conferences, seminars and symposia. Genova states that there is no provincial art - there are only provincial approaches to art problems. There is no peripheral art either - every art and artist are part of his/her destiny in his/her milieu and conditioned by those circumstances. Prof. Dr. Irina Subotic

015363. Co. Bulgaria and the Bulgarians - CD. The Bulgarian Tapestry
A “cherga” is a hand-loomed woolen-rug made of many colors and textures found in a traditional Bulgarian home. The people of Bulgaria are like a “cherga” - woven from varicolored threads that have merged over time. Multi-faceted and complex people, landscape, religions, and customs all come together in a way that is uniquely Bulgarian. The Bulgaria and the Bulgarians CD is a doorway to the kaleidoscope of the Bulgarian way of life. Riveting images of the mystic mountains surrounding Rila Monastery, ancient Thracian sanctuaries, village life that remains connected to the land, and the expressive faces of people of ethnic Bulgarian, Turkish, Roma, Armenian, Russian, Jewish, and Karakachani background come alive. The entrancing sounds of a prayer at a village mosque, Orthodox chants drifting through a church window, or bleating goats taking over village streets at the end of the day lure you into the scene. Bulgaria and the Bulgarians features 300 unique professional photographs accompanied by authentic sound effects, a slide show featuring jazz music with Bulgarian folklore motifs, free desktop wallpapers, and written descriptions of Bulgarian diversity, historical facts, customs, geography, and cultural achievements. This product has been registered in The Ministry of Culture of Republic of Bulgaria.

015542. Valentin Krasilov Evolution: System Theory
Life is constructive effort, the maintenance work of biological system on itself (feeding and reproduction, as well as cognition are the particulars of it) through which potential energy is replenished. This way the thermodynamic energy – work – energy circuit is unfolded in directional evolution; the holistic output of countless individual contributions, meaningful thereof. We inherit potential energy as ectropic gift from evolution to be enriched with personal life experience epigenetically assimilated and transmitted to successors. An increment of potential energy is converted into structural complexity requiring multilevel regulation, metaphysical on top. The value of individual life increases, and this is progress, with most action invested in potentialities rather than commodities. Reduced upon the principle of least action, life is meaningless; somebody’s intention, with free will scarcely exercised. What is not used tends to be lost. This is why strange love for natural selection has to be put to an end. The coherence of thermodynamic volume ? internal energy ? entropy (biomas ? diversity ? dead mass) production and complimentarity of life styles are systemic principles valid for all structural levels from genome regulation to cognitive creativity. Earth’s rotation links our sleeping hours and artistic aspirations to mountain building and sea level drops. For life as a whole the Galactic whirlpool is the common pacer. It is not a matter of chance that we all are in the same boat. To keep it afloat, having a meaningful evolution theory is more pragmatic than throwing less fit overboard or random flapping paddles.
