Old Norse-Icelandic language and literature at the EFL: e-Books
Dubbed by the New York Times as 'one of the most sought-after legal academics in the county,' William Ian Miller presents the arcane worlds of the Old Norse studies in a way sure to attract the interest of a wide range of readers. Bloodtaking and Peacemaking delves beneath the chaos and brutality of the Norse world to discover a complex interplay of ordering and disordering impulses. Miller's unique and engaging readings of ancient Iceland's sagas and extensive legal code reconstruct and illuminate the society that produced them. People in the saga world negotiated a maze of violent possibility, with strategies that frequently put life and limb in the balance. But there was a paradox in striking the balance-one could not get even without going one better. Miller shows how blood vengeance, law, and peacemaking were inextricably bound together in the feuding process.

The conventional explanation of the rise of social order in medieval Iceland, the so-called Commonwealth period, is constructivist in nature. In light of medieval legal thought, the explanation is unconvincing. The story of the decline of that social order is also problematic, in that no integrated theory seems to lie behind the explanation. By applying cooperation and rent-seeking theories to the historical record an attempt is made to provide an explanation that is more convincing, integrated and spontaneous in nature.

Беккер осмотрел одежду. Среди вещей были паспорт, бумажник и очки, засунутые кем-то в один из ботинков. Еще здесь был вещевой мешок, который полиция взяла в отеле, где остановился этот человек. Беккер получил четкие инструкции: ни к чему не прикасаться, ничего не читать. Просто все привезти.
