The Place of the Poor in the Biblical Tradition Gary A. Anderson

A leading biblical scholar places charity back at the heart of the Judeo-Christian tradition, arguing for its biblical roots
It has long been acknowledged that Jews and Christians distinguished themselves through charity to the poor.Though ancient Greeks and Romans were also generous, they funded theaters and baths rather than poorhouses and orphanages.How might we explain thisdifference? In this significant reappraisal of charity in the biblical tradition, Gary Anderson argues that the poor constituted the privileged place where Jews and Christians met God.Though concerns for social justice were not unknown to early Jews and Christians, the poor achieved the importance they did primarily because they were thought to be living altars, a place to make a sacrifice, a loan to God that he, as the ultimate guarantor, could be trusted to repay inturn. Contrary to the assertions of Reformation and mod- Praise forSin: ern critiques, belief in a heavenly treasury was not just Astonishing ... compelling.... This about self-interest.Sifting through biblical and post- book merits wide and sustained biblical texts, Anderson shows how charity affirms the attention.... There are few books goodness of the created order; the world was created available that offer as many generative insights as this one.Walter through charity and therefore rewardsit.

The Bet

Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earths Future

Paul Sabin
Are we headed for a world of scarce resources and environmental catastrophe, or will innovation and markets yield greaterprosperity?
In 1980, the iconoclastic economist Julian Simon challenged celebrity biologist Paul Ehrlich to a bet. Their wager on the future prices of five metals captured the publics imagination as a test of coming prosperity or doom. Ehrlich, author of the landmark book The Population Bomb, predicted that rising populations would cause overconsumption, resource scarcity, and faminewith apocalyptic consequences for humanity. Simon optimistically countered that human welfare would flourish thanks to flexible markets, technological change, and our collectiveingenuity. Simon and Ehrlichs debate reflected a deepening national conflict over the future of the planet.

The Nostalgia Factory

Memory, Time and Ageing Douwe Draaisma
With a storytellers gift and a scientists insights, Draaisma celebrates the unique pleasures of the aging memory
You cannot call to mind the name of a man you have known for 30 years. You walk into a room and forget what you came for. What is the name of that famous film youve watched so many times? These are common experiences, and as we grow older we tend to worry about these lapses. Is our memory failing? Is itdementia? Douwe Draaisma, a renowned memory specialist, here focuses on memory in later life. Writing with eloquence and humor, he explains neurological phenomena without becoming lost in specialist terminology. His book is reminiscent of Oliver Sackss work, and not coincidentally this volume includes a long interview with Sacks, who speaks of his own memory changes as he entered his sixties. Draaisma moves smoothly from anecdote to research and back, weaving stories and science into a Praise for Douwe Draaisma: compelling description of the terrain of memory.

The Huguenots
Geoffrey Treasure
An unprecedented history of the entire Huguenot experience in France, from hopeful beginnings to tragic diaspora
Following the Reformation, a growing number of radical Protestants came together to live and worship in Catholic France. These Huguenots survived persecution and armed conflict to winhowever brieflyfreedom of worship, civil rights, and unique status as a protected minority. But in 1685, the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes abolished all Huguenot rights, and more than 200,000 of the radical Calvinists were forced to flee across Europe, some evenfarther. In this capstone work, Geoffrey Treasure tells the full story of the Huguenots rise, survival, and fall in France over the course of a century and a half. He explores what it was like to be a Huguenot living in a state within a state, weaving stories of ordinary citizens together with those of statesmen, feudal magnates, leaders of the Catholic revival, Henry of Navarre, Catherine de Medici, Louis XIV, and many others. Treasure describes the Huguenots disciplined community, their faith and courage, their rich achievements, and their unique place within Protestantism and European history. The Huguenot exodus represented a crucial turning point in European history, Treasure contends, and he addresses the significance of the Huguenot storythe story of a minority group with the power to resist and endure in one of early modern Europes strongestnations.

Q: What motivated you to write RaisingHenry?

A: Im a literary critic by training, and when my son Henry was born, I immediately turned to literature to try to understand my circumstances. I was dismayed by the lack of reliable, informative reading material about raising a child with Down syndrome, as well as the quantity of misinformation I found in mainstream pregnancy guides and child-rearing books. I saw the need for a story told from a mothersperspective.

A conversation with Rachel Adams

Q: Can you tell us some positive things you have discovered or experienced as the mother of a disabledchild?
A: The best lesson Ive learned from Henry is that the world is full of people who have devoted their lives and careers to helping others. Ive seen my share of predictable ignorance and prejudice, but I was gratified by the more unexpected discovery of people with a genuine commitment to the rights and well-being of individuals with intellectual disabilities. My list includes doctors and other health care professionals, social workers, teachers, therapists, service coordinators, caregivers, and many, many others who have given their time and energy to helping Henry develop to his full potential and securing the happiness and health of ourfamily.

Q: What changes do you hope to see in the medical establishment and educational system with regard to treatment and services offered for people withdisabilities?
A: I would like to see doctors receive better training to help prospective parents make decisions about what it might mean to have a person with a disability in the family. And I look forward to educators learning more about how to enable students with Down syndrome to develop to their fullpotential.

The Catholic Church and World Development Robert Calderisi

A lively investigation of the Catholic Church and its controversial social mission in the developing world
With 1.2 billion members, the Catholic Church is the worlds largest organization and perhaps its most controversial. The Churchs obstinacy on matters like clerical celibacy, the role of women, birth control, and the child abuse scandal has alienated many Catholics, especially in the West. Yet in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the Church is highly esteemed for its support of education, health, and social justice. In this deeply informed book, Robert Calderisi unravels the paradoxes of the Catholic Churchs role in the developing world over the past 60years. Has the Catholic Church on balance been a force for good?

Walter Bagehot (18261877) was a prominentEnglish journalist, banker, and man of letters. Formany years he was editor of The Economist, and to this day the magazine includes a weekly Bagehot column. His analyses of politics, economics, and public affairs were nothing short of brilliant. Sadly, he left nomemoir. How, then, does this book bear the title The Memoirs of Walter Bagehot? Frank Prochaska explains, Given my longstanding interest in Bagehots life and times, I decided to compose a memoir on his behalf. And so, in this imaginative reconstruction of the memoir Bagehot might have written, Prochaska assumes his subjects voice, draws on his extensive writings (Bagehots Collected Works fill 15 volumes), and scrupulously avoids what Bagehot considered that most unpardonable of faultsdullness. A faux autobiography allows for considerable license, but Prochaska remains true to Bagehots character and is accurate in his depiction of the times. The memoir immerses us in the spirit of the Victorian era and makes us wish to have known Walter Bagehot. He is, Prochaska observes, the Victorian with whom we would most want to havedinner.

Roof Life
Svetlana Alpers
A celebrated art historian who has spent a lifetime looking at art writes about looking as a way of being in the world
This is not a memoir. It does not take the form of a story. It is instead a kind of self-portrait, or perhaps several self-portraits. Svetlana Alpers had been keeping files: records of what she saw out the windows of her loft in New York; records of art sold, bought, or seen on her walls; records of foods found in markets and prepared in places where she lived; and records of herself seen in photographs, drawings, and paintings made by others. In solving the question of her fathers place and date of birth, she reconstructs the life of her Russian grandfather in a distant and tumultuous Europe of a centuryago. It was Roof Life that made it all come together. The title refers to what one discovers looking out from high windows with distant and distinctive views. In addition, it refers to the way ones attention is heightened and sharpened by confronting things that are unfamiliar, or that are made to appear unfamiliar by circumstances. It describes the immediacy ofdistance. Renowned art historian Svetlana Alpers assembles in these pages descriptions of things that mattered in a life that began in Cambridge, Massachusetts, continued in Berkeley, California, and is now lived in New York City. The experience of Europe informs itall.

A: Social media have made it incredibly easy to keep in touch with friends and acquaintances. But there is considerable concern that the effort we put into maintaining our weaker social ties may crowd out the sustained attention needed to nurture deeper relationships. Even so, our research suggests that most oftodays young people seek traditional qualities in theironline relationships: empathy, trust, reciprocity, and self-disclosure.

A:Parents and teachers can encourage imaginative exploration, beyond the letter of the app.But part of the burden also falls on those who devise apps. Too many educational apps are just digital versions of drilland-kill. We need apps that open up new possibilities and then allow the user to explore, imagine, expand, and, on occasion, toss aside the digital device and go it alone.

How Todays Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World

From the famed Harvard psychologist and an expert on the impact of digital media technologies, a riveting exploration of the power of apps to shape our young people, for better or for worse
No one has failed to notice that the current generation of youth is deeplysome would say totallyinvolved with digital media. Professors Howard Gardner and Katie Davis name todays young people The App Generation, and in this spellbinding book they explore what it means to be app-dependent versus appenabled and how life for this generation differs from life before the digitalera. Gardner and Davis are concerned with three vital areas of adolescent life: identity, intimacy, and imagination. Through innovative research, including interviews of young people, focus groups of those who work with them, and a unique comparison ofyouthful artistic productions before and after the digital revolution, the authors uncover the drawbacks of apps: they may foreclose a sense of identity, encourage superficial relations with others, and stunt creative imagination. On the other hand, the benefits of apps are equally striking: they can promote a strong sense of identity, allow deep relationships, and stimulate creativity. The challenge is to venture beyond the ways that apps are designed to be used, Gardner and Davis conclude, and they suggest how the power of apps can be a springboard to greater creativity and higheraspirations.

Romanian exile Norman Maneas internationally acclaimed memoir/novel, now available to English-language readers
At the center of The Hooligans Return is the author himself, always an outcast, on a bleak lifelong journey through Nazism and communism to exile in America. But while Norman Maneas book is in many ways a memoir, it is also a deeply imaginative work, traversing time and place, life and literature, dream and reality, past and present. Autobiographical events merge with historic elements, always connecting the individual with the collective destiny. Manea speaks of the bloodiest time of the twentieth century and of the emergence afterward of a global, competitive, and sometimes cynical modernsociety. Both a harrowing memoir and an ambitious epic project, The Hooligans Return achieves a subtle internal harmony as anxiety evolves into a delicate irony and a burlesque fantasy. Beautifully written and brilliantly I am profoundly grateful for this conceived, this is the work of a writer with an acute living, flesh-and-blood, yet unearthly understanding of the vast human potential for both evil memoir.Cynthia Ozick and kindness, obedience and integrity.

One of Pierre Michons most powerful works, this book imagines decisive moments in the lives of five artists of different times and places: Vincent van Gogh, Francisco Goya, Antoine Watteau, Claude Lorrain, and Lorentino, a little-remembered disciple of Piero dellaFrancesca. Michon focuses on particular moments when artist and model collide, whether that model is a person or a landscape, inner or outer. In the five separate tales he evokes the full passion of the artists struggle to capture the world in images even as the world resists capture. Each story is a small masterpiece that transcends national boundaries and earns its place among the essential works of worldliterature.

Rimbaud the Son

Pierre Michon
Translated by Jody Gladding and Elizabeth Deshays 

A radiant work of fiction that illuminates the life and art of Rimbaud in a way that no biography could
Rimbaud the Son, widely celebrated upon its publication in France, investigates the life of a writer, the writing life, and the art of life-writing. Pierre Michon in his groundbreaking work examines the storied life of the French poet Arthur Rimbaud by means of a new literary genre: a meditation on the life of a legend as witnessed by his contemporaries, those who knew him before the legends took hold. Michon introduces us to Rimbaud the son, friend, schoolboy, renegade, drunk, sexual libertine, visionary, and ultimately poet. Michon focuses no less on the creative act: What presses a person to write? To pursueexcellence? The author dramatizes the life of a genius whose sufferings are enormous while his ambitions are transcendent, whose life is lived with utter intensity and purpose but also disorder and dissolutionas if the very substance of life is its undoing. Rimbaud the Son is now masterfully translated into English, enabling a wide new audience to discover for themselves the author Publishers Weekly called one of the best-kept secrets of modern Frenchprose.

Life, Death, and Growing Up on the Western Front

Anthony Fletcher
A powerful account of life and loss in the Great War, as told by British soldiers in their letters home
This book was inspired by the authors discovery of an extraordinary cache of letters from a soldier who was killed on the Western Front during the First World War. The soldier was his grandfather, and the letters had been tucked away, unread and unmentioned for many decades. Intrigued by the heartbreak and history of these family letters, Fletcher sought out the correspondence of other British soldiers who had volunteered for the fight against Germany. This resulting volume offers a vivid account of the physical and emotional experiences of seventeen British soldiers whose letters and one diary survive. Drawn from different regiments, social backgrounds, and areas of England and Scotland, they include twelve officers and five ordinary Tommies. The book explores the training, journey to France, fear, shellshock, and life in the trenches as well as the leisure, love, and home leave the soldiers dreamed of. Fletcher discusses the psychological responses of 18- and 19-yearold men facing appalling realities and considers the particular pressures on those who survived their fallen comrades. While acknowledging the horror and futility the soldiers of the Great War experienced, the author shows another side to the story, focusing new attention on the loyal comradeship, robust humor, and strong morale that uplifted the men at the Front and created a powerful bond amongthem.

Q: How important is friendship in the twenty-firstcentury?

A: Friendship has always been central to human existence, and although it is no longer a matter of leaguing together to bring down a woolly mammoth, it remains an indispensable psychological and social platform for good lives. In some ways the new media of communication and social networking has overextended the notion of friendship to a shallow simulacrum to that relationship, but they also make it possible for people to be together in new ways, and to nourish the bonds in which friendshipconsists.

A conversation with A.C. Grayling

Mykel Nicolaou / Rex Features

Q: Can friendship ever be bad forus?

A: It is all too possible to have toxic friends; it too often happens that people can do unwise or bad things in the name of friendship; having the wrong people as friends can be destructive; so yesfriendship can be bad for us. But it is far more often good for us, because we could not even begin to flourish fully unless we hadfriends.

Q: Can only humans befriends?

A: There is empirical evidence of connections very like friendships among chimpanzees; many people regard their pets, especially dogs, as friendsthough here companion is a more accurate term. In general it would seem that the focal case of friendship is the conscious, chosen, self-aware human relationship that implies a rich network of factors about trust, obligation, pleasure, and mutualconcern.

Bernard Berenson
Rachel Cohen

A Life in the Picture Trade

A brilliant new biography of the unsurpassed connoisseur who changed the art world and the way we see art
Few would have predicted that Bernard Berenson, from a poor Lithuanian Jewish immigrant family, would rise above poverty. Yet Berenson left his crowded home near Bostons railyards and transformed himself into the worlds most renowned expert on Italian Renaissance paintings, the owner of a beautiful villa and an immense private library in the hills outside Florence. The explosion of the Gilded Age art market and Berensons work for dealer Joseph Duveen supported a luxurious life, but itcame with painful costs: Berenson hid his origins and, though his attributions remain foundational, felt that he had betrayed his gifts as a critic and interpreter ofpaintings. This finely drawn portrait of Berenson, the first biography devoted to him in a quarter century, draws on new archival materials that bring out the significance of his secret business dealings and the central importance of several women in his life and work: his sister Senda Berenson; his wife Mary Berenson, his patron Isabella Stewart Gardner; his lover Belle da Costa Greene; his dear friend Edith Wharton; and the companion of his last forty years, Nicky Mariano. Rachel Cohen explores Berensons inner world and extraordinary visual capacity while also illuminating the historical forcesnew capital, the developing art market, persistent anti-Semitism, and the two world warsthat profoundly affected hislife.

Upon returning to his native Turin, Levi resumed work as a chemist and was employed for thirty years by a company specializing in paints and other chemical coatings.Yet soon after his return to Turin, he also began writingmemoirs, essays, novels, short stories, poetryand it is for this work that he has won international recognition. His first book, If This Is a Man, issued in 1947 after great difficulty in finding a publisher, remains a landmark document of the twentiethcentury. Berel Langs groundbreaking biography shines new light on Levis role as a major intellectual and literary figurean important Holocaust writer and witness but also an innovative moral thinker in whom his two roles as chemist and writer converged, providing the matter of his life. Levis writing combined a scientists attentiveness to structure and detail, an ironic imagination that found in all nature an ingenuity at once inviting and evasive, and a powerful and passionate moral imagination. Langs approach provides a philosophically acute and nuanced analysis of Levi as thinker, witness, writer, and scientificdetective.
Berel Lang is Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, State University of New York, Albany. He is the author or editor of twenty-one books, including Act and Idea in the Nazi Genocide, The Concept of Style, and, most recently, Philosophical Witnessing: The Holocaust as Presence.

Q: Why are you writing about cities when nation-states have all the power and are creating all theproblems?
A: Because its time to change the subject: we have been talking about independent nation-states for centuries, but more and more their power counts for little when it comes to the challenges of an interdependent world. The citys not just where the action needs to be; its where the action is. Lets talk intercity relations, not international relations; a parliament of mayors, not a League of Nations or a United Nations; global citizens, not local special interestconsumers.

A conversation with Benjamin R. Barber

Q: The American democratic process seems to be tied up in partisan knots. How can city mayors and their municipal governments dobetter?
A: As Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem said, mayors dont give sermons, they fix sewers. They are pragmatists, not ideologues, because in the end someone has to pick up the garbage. They are doing better than national politicians, which is why their trust rates are twice ashigh.

Q: Can you give an example of a mayor who has addressed a problem that his or her federal government hasnt dealt witheffectively?
A: Ever since Copenhagen, nation-states have been trying to deal with global warming, but sovereignty keeps getting in their way. Cities havent waited: Mayor Villaraigosa of Los Angeles has been greening up the port, cutting carbon emissions from freighters and trucks by nearly one-half. Since the port accounts for almost 40 percent of L.A.s carbon emissions, over five years the citys carbon pollution is waydown.

The foremost Proust scholar of our time offers a brilliantly revised and annotated edition of the first volume of the twentieth centurys most acclaimed novel
One hundred years have passed since Marcel Proust published the first volume of what was to become a seven-volume masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. In the intervening century his famously compelling novel has never been out of print and has been translated into dozens of languages. English-language readers were fortunate to have an early and extraordinarily fine translation of the novel from Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff. With the passage of time, however, the need for corrections, revisions, and annotations to the Scott Montcrieff translation has becomeapparent. Esteemed Proust scholar William C. Carter celebrates the publication centennial of Swanns Way with a new, more accurate and illuminating edition of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time. Carter corrects previous translating missteps to bring readers closer to Prousts intentions while also providing enlightening notes to clarify biographical, historical, and social contexts. Presented in a reader-friendly format alongside the text, these annotations will enrich and deepen the experience of Prousts novel, immersing readers in the world of an unsurpassed literarygenius.
William C. Carter is University Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Alabama atBirmingham.

Jonathan Swift
Leo Damrosch

His Life and His World

From a master biographer and leading scholar of eighteenth-century literature comes a major new portrait of the greatest satirist in the English language
Jonathan Swift is best remembered today as the author of Gullivers Travels, the satiric fantasy that quickly became a classic and has remained in print for nearly three centuries. Yet Swift also wrote many other influential works, was a major political and religious figure in his time, and became a national hero, beloved for his fierce protest against English exploitation of his native Ireland. What is really known today about the enigmatic man behind these accomplishments? Can the facts of his life be separated from thefictions? In this deeply researched biography, Leo Damrosch draws on discoveries made over the past thirty years to tell the story of Swifts life anew. Probing holes in the existing evidence, he takes seriously some daring speculations about Swifts parentage, love life, and various Praise for Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless personal relationships and shows how Swifts public ver- Genius sion of his lifethe one accepted until recentlywas A delight to readStacy Schiff, deliberately misleading.

Assembling suggestive clues, Damrosch re-narrates the events of Swifts life while making vivid the scents, sounds, and smells of his English and Irish surroundings. Through his own words and those of a wide circle of friends, a complex Swift emerges: a restless, combative, empathetic figure, a man of biting wit and powerful mind, and a major figure in the history of worldletters.

The Path to Victory 17691814

A landmark contribution to understanding the real man behind the heroic legendinspired bythe triumph at Waterloo
The Duke of Wellington was not just Britains greatest soldier, although his seismic struggles as leader of the Allied forces against Napoleon in the Peninsular War deservedly became the stuff of British national legend. Wellington was much more: a man of vision beyond purely military matters, a politically astute thinker, and a canny diplomat as well as lover, husband, and friend. Rory Muirs masterful new biography, the first of a two-volume set, is the fruit of a lifetimes research and discovery into Wellington and his times. The author brings Wellington into much sharper focus than ever before, addressing his masterstrokes and mistakes in equalmeasure. Muir looks at all aspects of Wellingtons career, from his unpromising youth through his remarkable successes in India and his role as junior minister in charge of Ireland, to his controversial military campaigns. With dramatic descriptions of major battles and how they might have turned out differently, the author underscores the magnitude of Wellingtons achievements. The biography is the first to address the major significance of Wellingtons political connections and shrewdness, and to set his career within the wider history of British politics and the war against Napoleon. The volume also revises Wellingtons reputation for being cold and aloof, showing instead a man of far more complex and interestingcharacter.
Rory Muir is visiting research fellow, University of Adelaide. His previously published books include a highly praised study of Wellingtons great triumph at Salamanca and the edited letters of Alexander Gordon, Wellingtons confidential aide-de-camp. He lives inAustralia.

The Co-Dependency of America and China

An original and insightful analysis of the most important economic relationship in the world
The modern-day Chinese and U.S. economies have been locked in an uncomfortable embrace since the late 1970s. Although the relationship was built on a set of mutual benefits, in recent years it has taken on the trappings of an unstable co-dependence. This insightful book lays bare the pitfalls of the current China-U.S. economic relationship, highlighting disputes over trade policies and intellectual property rights, sharp contrasts in leadership styles, the role of the Internet, and the political economy of socialstability. Stephen Roach, a firsthand witness to the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s and an economics expert who likely knows more about U.S.China trade than any other Westerner, details how the two economies mirror one another. Co-dependency augments the tensions and suspicions between the two nations, but there is reason to hope for less antagonism and rivalry, the author maintains. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, both economies face structural changes that present opportunities for mutual benefit. Roach describes a way out of the escalating tensions of co-dependence and insists that the Next China offers much for the Next Americaand viceversa.

Through a Screen Darkly

Martha Bayles

Popular Culture, Public Diplomacy, and Americas Image Abroad

Why it is a mistake to let commercial entertainment serve as Americas de facto ambassador to the world
What does the world admire most about America? Science, technology, higher education, consumer goodsbut not, it seems, freedom and democracy. Indeed, these ideals are in global retreat, for reasons ranging from ill-conceived foreign policy to the financial crisis and the sophisticated propaganda of modern authoritarians. Another reason, explored for the first time in this pathbreaking book, is the distorted picture of freedom and democracy found in Americas culturalexports. In interviews with thoughtful observers in eleven countries, Martha Bayles heard many objections to the violence and vulgarity pervading todays popular culture. But she also heard a deeper complaint: namely, that America no longer shares the best of itself. Tracing this change to the end of the Cold War, Bayles shows Bayles points to the elephant in the room how public diplomacy was scaled back, and in-your-face that is ignored in all other discussions of public diplomacy in general and cultural entertainment became Americas de factoambassador.

This book focuses on the present and recent past, but its role of commercial mass culture.

The Struggle for Iraqs Future

Zaid Al-Ali

How Corruption, Incompetence, and Sectarianism Have Undermined Democracy

An unbarred account of life in post-occupation Iraq and an assessment of the nations prospects for the future
Many Westerners have offered interpretations of Iraqs nation-building progress in the wake of the 2003 war and the eventual withdrawal of American troops from the country, but little has been written by Iraqis themselves. This forthright book fills in the gap. Zaid Al-Ali, an Iraqi lawyer with direct ties to the people of his homeland, to government circles, and to the international community, provides a uniquely insightful and up-to-date view of Iraqs people, their government, and the extent of their nations worseningproblems. The true picture is discouraging: murderous bombings, ever-increasing sectarianism, and pervasive government corruption have combined to prevent progress on such crucial issues as security, healthcare, and power availability. Al-Ali contends that the ill-planned U.S. intervention destroyed the Iraqi state, creating a black hole which corrupt and incompetent members of the elite have made their own. And yet, despite all efforts to divide them, Iraqis retain a strong sense of national identity, Al-Ali maintains. He reevaluates Iraqs relationship with itself, discusses the inspiration provided by the events of the Arab Spring, and redefines Iraqs most important struggle to regain its viability as anation.
Zaid al-Ali is senior advisor on constitution building for International IDEA, Cairo, and was a legal advisor to the United Nations in Iraq from 2005 to 2009. He often serves as a commentator on Iraqi issues for BBC, Al-Jazeera, Channel 4, and the New York Times among others. He lives in Cairo, Egypt.

Beautiful Province
Clarence Coo
Foreword by John Guare 

The 2012 winner of the Yale Drama Series

A fifteen-year-old boy decides to accompany his severely depressed high school French teacher on a road trip to the Canadian province of Quebec, where the mother tongue of Voltaire and Balzac is still spoken and cherished. Clarence Coos mesmerizing new play is a delicious amalgam of farce and tragedy, a carnival funhouse with very dark corners. Wildly inventive and heartbreakingly sad, the strange odyssey of Jimmy and the unpredictable Mr. Green takes many surprising turns, crossing the border from reality into unreality and back again while encountering displaced characters from history, literature, and the mundane, often dangerousworld. Selected by Tony Awardwinning playwright John Guare (House of Blue Leaves, Six Degrees of Separation, and others) from over 1,000 submissions from 29 countries, Clarence Coos Beautiful Province is the sixth winner of the DC Horn Foundation/Yale Drama Series Prize. In his foreword, Guare calls Coos work elusive and haunting ... funny, desperate, insane, praising it for its intriguing story [and]its tone, sustained to the very end. Lyrical and adventurous, Beautiful Province is an outstanding new theatrical work, well deserving of these accolades andmore.
Clarence Coo is a resident playwright at New Dramatists, a member of the Ma-Yi Writers Lab, and a 20122013 Dramatists Guild fellow. He received his MFA in Playwriting at Columbia University, where he studied under Charles Mee, and is currently the program administrator of the Graduate Writing Program at Columbias School of theArts.

The Great War Seen from the Air, 19141918 Birger Stichelbaut
A remarkable photographic record of World War One, its relentless progression and the destruction it wrought, as seen from the skies above Flanders Fields
Aerial photography was a relatively new technology at the onset of World War I and was embraced as an indispensable tool of wartime intelligence by all nations involved in the conflict. As a result, thousands of photographs taken from the air over the battlefields of the Great War have survived in archives throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States. These pictures present the war from a unique perspective, clearly showing the developing trench system, artillery batteries, bunkers, railway lines, airfields, medical evacuation routes, and more. They reveal the expanding war in Flanders Fields as the hostilities spread, kilometer by kilometer, devastating the environment and resulting in the complete destruction of the landscape at thefront. This illuminating volume, the results of a collaboration between the In Flanders Fields Museum, Ypres, the Imperial War Museum, London, and the Royal Army Museum, Brussels, features hundreds of photographic case studies, illustrating in unprecedented detail the physical extent of World War I and the shocking environmental damage it left in its wake. Supplementing aerial images with maps, documents, and photos taken from the ground, this one-of-a-kind visual record stands as an important contribution to World War I history, revealing the wartime landscape of Flanders Fields as rarely seenbefore.
Birger Stichelbaut is a postdoc researcher based in the department of archaeology, Ghent University, Belgium.

The Power of Knowledge

Jeremy Black

How Information and Technology Made the Modern World

A thought-provoking analysis of how the acquisition and utilization of information has determined the course of history over the past five centuries and shaped the world as we know it today
Information is power. For more than five hundred years the success or failure of nations has been determined by a countrys ability to acquire knowledge and technical skill and transform them into strength and prosperity. Leading historian Jeremy Black approaches global history from a distinctive perspective, focusing on the relationship between information and society and demonstrating how the understanding and use of information have been the primary factors in the development and character of the modernage. Black suggests that the Wests ascension was a direct result of its institutions and social practices for acquiring, employing, and retaining information and the technology that was ultimately produced. His cogent and well-reasoned analysis looks at cartography and the hardware of communication, armaments and sea power, mercantilism and imperialism, science and astronomy, as well as bureaucracy and the management of information, linking the history of technology with the history of global power while providing important indicators for the future of ourworld.
Jeremy Black is professor of history at the University of Exeter. A writer, lecturer, and broadcaster, he is the author of six books published by Yale University Press, among them Maps and History and GeorgeIII.

The Allure of the Archives

Arlette Farge
Translated by Thomas Scott-Railton; Foreword by Natalie Zemon Davis 

An exquisite literary appreciation of the grand rewards of historical research and the elegant craft of discovery, now in its first Englishtranslation
Arlette Farges Le Got de larchive is widely regarded as a historiographical classic. While combing through two-hundred-year-old judicial records from the Archives of the Bastille, historian Farge was struck by the extraordinarily intimate portrayal they provided of the lives of the poor in pre-Revolutionary France, especially women. She was seduced by the sensuality of old manuscripts and by the revelatory power of voices otherwise lost. In The Allure of the Archives, she conveys the exhilaration of uncovering hidden secrets and the thrill of venturing into previously unknown dimensions of thepast. Originally published in 1989, Farges classic work communicates the tactile, interpretive, emotional experience of archival research while sharing astonishing details about life under the Old Regime in France. At once a practical guide to research methodology and an elegant literary reflection on the challenges of writing history, this uniquely rich volume demonstrates how surrendering to the archives allure can forever change how we understand thepast.

The Great Rent Wars

New York, 19171929 Robert M. Fogelson
A groundbreaking account of the early history of rent control
Written by one of the countrys foremost urban historians, The Great Rent Wars tells the fascinating but little-known story of the battles between landlords and tenants in the nations largest city from 1917 through 1929. These conflicts were triggered by the post-war housing shortage, which prompted landlords to raise rents, drove tenants to go on rent strikes, and spurred the state legislature, a conservative body dominated by upstate Republicans, to impose rent control in New York, a radical and unprecedented step that transformed landlord-tenantrelations. The Great Rent Wars traces the tumultuous history of rent control in New York from its inception to its expiration as it unfolded in New York, Albany, and Washington, D.C. At the heart of this story are such memorable figures as Al Smith, Fiorello H. La Guardia, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, as well as a host of ten- A powerful history of a remarkable contest ants, landlords, judges, and politicians who have long over the governance of the housing market been forgotten.

The Citizens Share

Putting Ownership Back Into Democracy

Joseph R. Blasi, Richard B. Freeman, and Douglas L. Kruse

A compelling argument for broad-based profit sharing and employee ownership in keeping with the economic vision of Americas Founders
The idea of workers owning the businesses where they work is not new. In Americas early years, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison believed that the best economic plan for the Republic was for citizens to have some ownership stake in the land, which was the main form of productive capital.This book traces the development of that share idea in American history and brings its message to todays economy, where business capital has replaced land as the source of wealthcreation. Based on a ten-year study of profit sharing and employee ownership at small and large corporations, this important and insightful work makes the case that the Founders original vision of sharing ownership and profits offers a viable path toward restoring the middle class. Blasi, Freeman, and Kruse show that an ownership stake in a corporation inspires and increases worker loyalty, productivity, and innovation. Their book offers history-, economics-, and evidence-based policy ideas attheirbest.

Philosophy of Dreams
Christoph Trcke
Translated by Susan H. Gillespie 

A sweeping reconstruction of human consciousness and its breakdown, from the Stone Age through modern technology
Why has humankind developed so differently from other animals? How and why did language, culture, religion, and the arts come into being? Christoph Trcke offers a new answer to these timeworn questions by scrutinizing the phenomenon of the dream, using it as a psychic fossil connecting us with our Stone Age ancestors. Provocatively, he argues that both civilization and mental processes are the results of a compulsion to repeat early traumas, one to which hallucination, imagination, mind, spirit, and God all developed inresponse. Until the beginning of the modern era, repetition was synonymous with de-escalation and calming down. Then, automatic machinery gave rise to a new type of repetition, whose effects are permanent alarm and distraction. The new global forces of distraction, Trcke argues, are producing a specific kind of stress that One of Germanys leading intellectuals breaks down the barriers between dreams and wak- reconstructs the process of civilization ing consciousness.

Naturalists at Sea
Glyn Williams

Scientific Travellers from Dampier to Darwin

Tales of the intrepid early naturalists who set sail on dangerous voyages of discovery in the vast, unknown Pacific
On the great Pacific discovery expeditions of the long eighteenth century, naturalists for the first time were commonly found aboard ships sailing forth from European ports. Lured by intoxicating opportunities to discover exotic and perhaps lucrative flora and fauna unknown at home, these men set out eagerly to collect and catalogue, study and document an uncharted naturalworld. This enthralling book is the first to describe the adventures and misadventures, discoveries and dangers of this devoted and sometimes eccentric band of explorerscholars. Their individual experiences are uniquely their own, but together their stories offer a new perspective on the extraordinary era of Pacific exploration and the achievements of an audacious generation of naturalists. Historian Glyn Williams illuminates the naturalists lot aboard ship, where danger alternated with boredom and quarrels with the ships commander were the norm. Nor did the naturalists difficulties end upon returning home, where recognition for years of work often proved elusive. Peopled with wonderful characters and major figures of Enlightenment scienceamong them Louis Antoine de Bougainville, Joseph Banks, John Reinhold Forster, Captain Cook, and Charles Darwinthis book is a gripping account of a small group of scientific travelers whose voyages of discovery were to change perceptions of the naturalworld.

Nation of Devils

Democracy and the Problem of Obedience Stein Ringen

Oxford University political theorist Stein Ringen offers a thought-provoking meditation on the art of democratic rule: how does a government persuade the people to accept its authority? Every government must make unpopular demands of its citizens, from levying taxes to enforcing laws and monitoring compliance to regulations. The challenge, Ringen argues, is that power is not enough; the populace must also be willing to be led. Ringen addresses this political conundrum unabashedly, using the United States and Britain as his prime examples, providing sharp opinions and cogent analyses on how the culture of national obedience is created and nurtured. He explores the paths leaders must choose if they wish to govern by authority rather than power, or, as the philosopher Immanuel Kant put it, to maintain order in a nation of devils.
Stein Ringen is professor emeritus of sociology and social policy at Oxford University. He lives inLondon.

The Supreme Court, Congress, and American Democracy Anna Harvey

Introductory textbooks on American government tell us that the Supreme Court is independent from the elected branches and that independent courts better protect rights than their more deferential counterparts. But are these facts ormyths? In this groundbreaking new work, Anna Harvey reports evidence showing that the Supreme Court is in fact extraordinarily deferential to congressional preferences in its constitutional rulings. Analyzing cross-national evidence, Harvey also finds that the rights protections we enjoy in the United States appear to be largely due to the fact that we do not have an independent Supreme Court. In fact, we would likely have even greater protections for political and economic rights were we to prohibit our federal courts from exercising judicial review altogether. Harveys findings suggest that constitutional designers would be wise to heed Thomas Jeffersons advice to let mercy be the character of the law-giver, but let the judge be a mere machine.
Anna Harvey is associate professor of political science at New York University. She lives in New YorkCity.

A Mere Machine

Using innovative analytic techniques, Anna Harvey offers a surprising argument, that the Supreme Court responds to changes in the partisan composition of the House of Representatives. Her extension of the argument to raise questions about the value of judicial independence and judicial review in established democracies is especially interesting.Mark Tushnet, Harvard Law School

Dream in Shakespeare
With a New Preface by the Author 
Dream is a central image for Shakespeare, encompassing at once the terrors of the irrational and the creative powers of the imaginationones deepest fears and highest aspirations. Used in the early plays as a verbal or structural device, dream becomes, in the tragedies and late romances, a transforming experience which leads the dreamer toward a moment of self-awareness. In this illuminating study, now reissued with a new preface by the author, Marjorie Garber skillfully charts the development of Shakespeares use of dream from the opening lines of Richard III to the magic of A Midsummer Nights Dream to Hamlets most famoussoliloquy. Drawing on the works of Freud and other psychologists, but basing its argument on the language and dramatic structure of the plays themselves, Dream in Shakespeare presents a coherent and innovative reading of the plays and their developing concept ofdream.

A Restatement of Religion

Swami Vivekananda and the Making of Hindu Nationalism Jyotirmaya Sharma

In this third installment of his comprehensive history of Indias religion and reappraisal of Hindu identity, Professor Jyotirmaya Sharma offers an engaging portrait of Swami Vivekananda and his relationship with his guru, the legendary Ramakrishna. Sharmas work focuses on Vivekanandas reinterpretation and formulation of diverse Indian spiritual and mystical traditions and practices as Hinduism and how it served to create, distort, and justify a national self-image. The author examines questions of caste and the primacy of the West in Vivekanandas vision, as well as the systematic marginalization of alternate religions and heterodox beliefs. In doing so, Professor Sharma provides readers with an incisive entryway intonineteenth- and twentieth-century Indian history and the rise of Hindutva, the Hindu nationalistmovement. Sharmas illuminating narrative is an excellent reexamination of one of Indias most controversial religious figures and a fascinating study of the symbiosis of Indian history, religion, politics, and national identity.It is an essential story for anyone interested in the evolution of one of the worlds great religions and its role in shaping contemporaryIndia.

The Formation of the Jewish Canon

Timothy H. Lim
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls provides unprecedented insight into the nature of the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament before its fixation. Timothy Lim here presents a complete account of the formation of the canon in Ancient Judaism from the emergence of the Torah in the Persian period to the final acceptance of the list of twenty-two/twenty-four books in the Rabbinicperiod. Using the Hebrew Bible, the Scrolls, the Apocrypha, the Letter of Aristeas, the writings of Philo, Josephus, the New Testament, and Rabbinic literature as primary evidence he argues that throughout the post-exilic period up to around 100 CE there was not one official canon accepted by all Jews; rather, there existed a plurality of collections of scriptures that were authoritative for different communities. Examining the literary sources and historical circumstances that led to the emergence of authoritative scriptures in ancient Judaism, Lim proposes a theory of the majority canon that posits that the Pharisaic canon became the canon of Rabbinic Judaism in the centuries after the destruction of the JerusalemTemple.
Timothy H. Lim is Professor of Hebrew Bible & Second Temple Judaism at the School of Divinity, University ofEdinburgh.

Jewish and Postcolonial Writing and the Nightmare of History Bryan Cheyette
In this fascinating and erudite book, Bryan Cheyette throws new light on a wide range of modern and contemporary writerssome at the heart of the canon, others more marginalto explore the power and limitations of the diasporic imagination after the Second World War. Moving from early responses to the death camps and decolonization, through internationally prominent literature after the Second World War, the book culminates in fresh engagements with contemporary Jewish, post-ethnic, and postcolonialwriters. Cheyette regards many of the twentieth- and twenty-first-century luminaries he examinesamong them Hannah Arendt, Anita Desai, Frantz Fanon, Albert Memmi, Primo Levi, Caryl Phillips, Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, Edward Said, Zadie Smith, and Muriel Sparkas critical exemplars of the diasporic imagination. Against the discrete disciplinary thinking of the academy, he elaborates and argues for a new comparative approach across Jewish and postcolonial histories and literatures. And in so doing, Cheyette illuminates the ways in which histories and cultures can be imagined across national and communalboundaries.

Reading Dante

Giuseppe Mazzotta

A towering figure in world literature, Dante wrote his great epic poem Commedia in the early fourteenth century. The work gained universal acclaim and came to be known as La Divina Commedia, or The Divine Comedy. Giuseppe Mazzotta brings Dante and his masterpiece to life in this exploration of the man, his cultural milieu, and his endlessly fascinatingworks. Based on Mazzottas highly popular Yale course, this book offers a critical reading of The Divine Comedy and selected other works by Dante. Through an analysis of Dantes autobiographical Vita nuova, Mazzotta establishes the poetic and political circumstances of The Divine Comedy. He situates the three sections of the poemInferno, Purgatory, Paradisewithin the intellectual and social context of the late Middle Ages, and he explores the political, philosophical, and theological topicswith which Dante was particularlyconcerned.

The Warburg Years (19191933)

Essays on Language, Art, Myth, and Technology

Ernst Cassirer  ranslated and with an Introduction by S. G. Lofts with A. Calcagno T

Jewish German philosopher Ernst Cassirer was a leading proponent of the Marburg school of neo-Kantianism. The essays in this volume provide a window into Cassirers discovery of the symbolic nature of human existencethat our entire emotional and intellectual life is configured and formed through the originary expressive power of word and image, that it is in and through the symbolic cultural systems of language, art, myth, religion, science, and technology that human life realizes itself and attains not only its form, its visibility, but also its reality. Thought and being are set in opposition and united in genuine correspondence by the symbolic strife between them that Cassirer calls Auseinandersetzung, which determines the ethical relationship of the self to theother.

Three Thousand Years of Hebrew Versification

Essays in Comparative Prosody Benjamin Harshav

In this unparalleled study of the forms of Hebrew poetry, preeminent authority Benjamin Harshav examines Hebrew verse during three millennia of changing historical and cultural contexts. He takes us around the world of the Jewish Diaspora, comparing the changes in Hebrew verse as it came into contact with the Canaanite, Greek, Arabic, Italian, German, Russian, Yiddish, and English poeticforms. Harshav explores the types and constraints of free rhythms, the meanings of sound patterns, the historical and linguistic frameworks that produced the first accentual iambs in English, German, Russian, and Hebrew, and the first discovery of these iambs in a Yiddish romance written in Venice in 1508/09. In each chapter, the author presents an innovative analytical theory on a particular poetic domain, drawing on his close study of thousands of Hebrewpoems.
Benjamin Harshav is professor emeritus of comparative literature and J. & H. Blaustein Professor of Hebrew Language and Literature, Yale University, and professor emeritus of literary theory, Tel Aviv University. He lives in North Haven, CT.

Its Origins Through the Rabbinic Period William M. Schniedewind

More than simply a method of communication shared by a common people, the Hebrew language was always an integral part of the Jewish cultural system and, as such, tightly interwoven into the lives of the prophets, poets, scribes, and priests who used it. In this unique social history, William Schniedewind examines classical Hebrew from its origins in the second millennium BCE until the Rabbinic period, when the principles of Judaism as we know it today were formulated, to view the story of the Israelites through the lens of theirlanguage. Considering classical Hebrew from the standpoint of a writing system as opposed to vernacular speech, Schniedewind demonstrates how the Israelites long history of migration, war, exile, and other momentous events is reflected in Hebrews linguistic evolution. An excellent addition to the fields of biblical and Middle Eastern studies, this fascinating work brings linguistics and social history together for the first time to explore an ancientculture.

Men from the Ministry

How Britain Saved Its Heritage Simon Thurley

Between 1900 and 1950 the British state amassed a huge collection of over 800 historic buildings, monuments, and sites and opened themto the public. This engaging book explains why the extraordinary collecting frenzy took place, locating it in the fragile and nostalgic atmosphere of the interwar years, dominated by neo-romanticism and cultural protectionism. The governments activities were mirrored by the establishment of dozens of voluntary bodies, including the Council for the Protection of Rural England, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, and the National Trust. Men from the Ministry sets all this activity, for the first time, in its political, economic and cultural contexts,painting a picture of a country traumatized by war, fearful of losing what was left of its history, and a government that actively set out to protect them. It dissects a government program that established a modern state on deep historical and ruralroots.

The Letters of C. Vann Woodward

Edited by Michael OBrien
C. Vann Woodward was one of the most prominent and respected American historians of the twentieth century. He was also a very gifted and frequent writer of letters, from his earliest days as a young student in Arkansas and Georgia to his later days at Yale when he became one of the arbiters of American intellectualculture. For the first time, his sprightly, wry, sympathetic, and often funny letters are published, including those he wrote to figures as diverse as John Kennedy, David Riesman, Richard Hofstadter, and Robert Penn Warren. The letters shed new light not only on Woodward himself, but on what it meant to be an American radical and public intellectual, as well as on the complex politics and discourse of the historical profession and the anxious modulations of Southernculture.
Michael OBrien is professor of American intellectual history at the University of Cambridge.

The British Army and the Liberation of Europe John Buckley

Historian John Buckley offers a radical reappraisal of Great Britains fighting forces during World War Two, challenging the common belief that the British Army was no match for the forces of Hitlers Germany. Following Britains military commanders and troops across the battlefields of Europe, from D-Day to VE-Day, from the Normandy beaches to Arnhem and the Rhine, and, ultimately, to the Baltic, Buckleys provocative history demonstrates that the British Army was more than a match for the vaunted Nazi warmachine. This fascinating revisionist study of the campaign to liberate Northern Europe in the wars final years features a large cast of colorful unknowns and grand historical personages alike, including Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery and the prime minister, Sir Winston Churchill. By integrating detailed military history with personal accounts, it evokes the vivid reality of men at war while putting long-held misconceptions finally torest.

Indian Ocean Slavery in the Age of Abolition

Edited by Robert Harms, Bernard K. Freamon, and David Blight

While the British were able to accomplish abolition in the trans-Atlantic world by the end of the nineteenth century, their efforts paradoxically caused a great increase in legal and illegal slave trading in the western Indian Ocean. Bringing together essays from leading authorities in the field of slavery studies, this comprehensive work offers an original and creative study of slavery and abolition in the Indian Ocean world during this period. Among the topics discussed are the relationship between British imperialism and slavery; Islamic law and slavery; and the bureaucracy of slavetrading.

The focus on the abolition period marks the volume as unique. It is valuable for that purpose, besides vetting very fine scholarship. I would recommend it to anyone interested in slavery, the Indian Ocean, the Islamic world, and abolition.Paul Lovejoy, author of Transformations in Slavery: A History of Slavery in Africa

Galbert of Bruges  ranslated by Jeff Rider T

In 1127 Charles the Good, count of Flanders, was surrounded by assassins while at prayer and killed by a sword blow to the forehead. His murder upset the fragile balance of power between England, France, and the Holy Roman Empire, giving rise to a bloody civil war while impacting the commercial life of medieval Europe. The eyewitness account by the Flemish cleric Galbert of Bruges of the assassination and the struggle for power that ensued is the only journal to have survived from twelfthcentury Europe.

Female Alliances
Gender, Identity, and Friendship in Early Modern Britain

Amanda E. Herbert
In the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, cultural, economic, and political changes, as well as increased geographic mobility, placed strains upon British society. But by cultivating friendships and alliances, women worked to socially cohere Britain and its colonies. In the first book-length historical study of female friendship and alliance for the early modern period, Amanda Herbert draws on a series of interlocking microhistorical studies to demonstrate the vitality and importance of bonds formed between British women in the long eighteenth century. She shows that while these alliances were central to womens lives, they were also instrumental in building the British Atlanticworld.

The Field of Cloth of Gold

Glenn Richardson
Glenn Richardson provides the first history in more than four decades of a major Tudor event: an extraordinary international gathering of Renaissance rulers unparalleled in its opulence, pageantry, controversy, andmystery. Throughout most of the late medieval period, from 1300 to 1500, England and France were bitter enemies, often at war or on the brink of it. In 1520, in an effort to bring conflict to an end, Englands monarch, Henry VIII, and Francis I of France agreed to meet, surrounded by virtually their entire political nations, at the Field of Cloth of Gold. In the midst of a spectacular festival of competition and entertainment, the rival leaders hoped to secure a permanent settlement between them, as part of a European-wide Universal Peace. Richardson offers a bold new appraisal of this remarkable historical event, describing the preparations and execution of the magnificent gathering, exploring its ramifications, and arguing that it was far more than the extravagant elitist theater and cynical charade it historically has been considered tobe.
Glenn Richardson is reader in early modern history at St. Marys University College, London.

Finance, Culture, and the Crash of 1720 Edited by William N. Goetzmann, Catherine Labio, K. Geert Rouwenhorst, and Timothy G. Young

The worlds first global stock market bubble suddenly burst in 1720, destroying the dreams and fortunes of speculators in London, Paris, and Amsterdam virtually overnight. Their folly and misfortune inspired the publication of an extraordinary Dutch collection of satirical prints, plays, poetry, commentary, and financial prospectuses entitled Het groote Tafereel de Dwaasheid (The Great Mirror of Folly), a unique and lavish record of the financial crisis and its cultural dimensions. The current book adopts the title. It is a book about the book, a wide-ranging interdisciplinary collaboration that uncovers the meaning and influence of the Tafereel and the profound, lasting, and multifaceted impact of the crash of 1720 on European cultures and financialmarkets.

A Plague of Informers
Conspiracy and Political Trust in William IIIs England

Rachel Weil
Stories of plots, sham plots, and the citizen-informers who discovered them are at the center of Rachel Weils compelling study of the turbulent decade following the Revolution of 1688. Most studies of the Glorious Revolution focus on its causes or long-term effects, but Weil instead zeroes in on the early years when the survival of the new regime was in doubt. By encouraging informers, imposing loyalty oaths, suspending habeas corpus, and delaying the long-promised reform of treason trial procedure, the Williamite regime protected itself from enemies and cemented its bonds with supporters, but also put its own credibility atrisk.

Adam Smiths Pluralism

Rationality, Education, and the Moral Sentiments

Jack Russell Weinstein

In this thought-provoking study, Jack Russell Weinstein suggests the foundations of liberalism can be found in the writings of Adam Smith (17231790), a pioneer of modern economic theory and a major figure in the Scottish Enlightenment. While offering an interpretive methodology for approaching Smiths two major works, The Theory of Moral Sentiments and The Wealth of Nations, Weinstein argues against the libertarian interpretation of Smith, emphasizing his philosophies of education and rationality. Weinstein also demonstrates that Smith should be recognized for a prescient theory of pluralism that prefigures current theories of culturaldiversity.

The Declaration of Independence in Historical Context

Compiled, Edited, and Introduced by Barry Alan Shain

Political science professor Barry Shain has collected 174 letters, papers, petitions, and proclamations from the years directly preceding the creation of the Declaration of Independence that challenge many of the dominant narratives that shape contemporary understanding of this all-important document. Rather than arising from strong philosophical convictions and a clearly perceived vision of the future, the Declaration, as these writings demonstrate, was more the result of chance occurrences and practical considerations, and reflective of a society less rebellionminded and far more monarchically inclined than most Americans today have been taught tobelieve.

Practicing Stalinism

Bolsheviks, Boyars, and the Persistence of Tradition J. Arch Getty

In old Russia, patron/client relations, clan politics, and a variety of other informal practices spanned the centuries.Government was understood to be patrimonial and personal rather than legal, and office holding was far less important than proximity to patrons. Working from heretofore unused documents from the Communist archives, J. Arch Getty shows how these political practices and traditions from old Russia have persisted throughout the twentieth-century Soviet Union and down to the presentday.

Getty examines a number of case studies of political practices in the Stalin era and after.These include cults of personality, the transformation of Old Bolsheviks into noble grandees, the Communist Partys personnel selection system, and the rise of political clans (family circles) after the 1917 Revolutions. Stalins conflicts with these clans, and his eventual destruction of them, were key elements of the Great Purges of the 1930s.But although Stalin could destroy the competing clans, he could not destroy the historically embedded patron-client relationship, as a final chapter on political practice under Putinshows.

St. Petersburg

Shadows of the Past Catriona Kelly

Fragile, gritty, and vital to an extraordinary degree, St. Petersburg is one of the worlds most alluring citiesa place in which the past is at once ubiquitous and inescapably controversial. Yet outsiders are far more familiar with the citys pre-1917 and Second World War history than with its recentpast. In this beautifully illustrated and highly original book, Catriona Kelly shows how creative engagement with the past has always been fundamental to St. Petersburgs residents. Weaving together oral history, personal observation, literary and artistic texts, journalism, and archival materials, she traces the at times paradoxical feelings of anxiety and pride that were inspired by living in the city, both when it was socialist Leningrad, and now.

The Christian Monitors

The Church of England and the Age of Benevolence, 16801730

Brent S. Sirota
This original and persuasive book examines the moral and religious revival led by the Church of England before and after the Glorious Revolution, and shows how that revival laid the groundwork for a burgeoning civil society in Britain. After outlining the Church of Englands key role in the increase of voluntary, charitable, and religious societies, Brent Sirota examines how these groups drove the modernization of Britain through such activities as settling immigrants throughout the empire, founding charity schools, distributing devotional literature, and evangelizing and educating merchants, seamen, and slaves throughout the British empireall leading to what has been termed the age of benevolence.

A Photographic Guide Paul Scofield and Brent Stephenson

New Zealands birdlife developed extraordinary diversity as a consequence of evolving on isolated islands without mammalian predators. For many years, habitat destruction brought on by humans posed a distinct threat to the wide variety of birdlife, but thanks to recent conservation efforts, many of the countrys species of birds are now protected in parks and islandsanctuaries. Illustrated with nearly a thousand new photographs from one of New Zealands top nature photographers and drawing on the latest information from birders and biologists, Birds of New Zealand offers a definitive introduction to the identification and behavior of the countrys extraordinary avian life. The book includes expert and up-to-date information on the 375 bird species found in New Zealand, including species ranging from albatrosses and shearwaters to kiwi and kaka. It will be a valuable addition to the existing literature onbirding.

The Future of Nature

Documents of Global Change Edited by Libby Robin, Sverker Srlin, and Paul Warde
This anthology provides a comprehensive overview of the science behind environmental prediction and how, as predictions about environmental change have been taken more seriously and widely, they have affected politics, policy, and public perception. Through an array of texts and commentaries that examine the themes of progress, population, environment, biodiversity, and sustainability from a fully global perspective, it shows how twenty-first century predictors think about what forecasting the future means. Providing access and reference points to the origins and development of key disciplines and methods, it will encourage policy makers, professionals, and students to reflect on the roots of their own theories andpractices.

A Theory of Militant Democracy

The Ethics of Combatting Political Extremism

Alexander S. Kirshner
How should pro-democratic forces safeguard representative government from anti-democratic forces? By granting rights of participation to groups that do not share democratic values, democracies may endanger the very rights they have granted; but denying these rights may also undermine democratic values. Alexander Kirshner offers a set of principles for determining when one may reasonably refuse rights of participation, and he defends this theory through real-world examples, ranging from the far-right British Nationalist Party to Turkeys Islamist Welfare Party to Americas Democratic Party duringReconstruction.

Alexander Kirshneris an assistant p rofessor of political science at Duke University and a senior fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics. He lives in Durham, NC.

Against the Profit Motive

The Salary Revolution in American Government, 17801940

Nicholas Parrillo
In America today, a public officials lawful income consists of a salary. But until a century ago, the law frequently authorized officials to make money on a profit-seeking basis. Prosecutors won a fee for each defendant convicted. Tax collectors received a cut of each evasion uncovered. Naval officers took a reward for each ship sunk. The list goes on. This book is the first to document American governments for-profit past, to discover how profit-seeking defined officials relationship to the citizenry, and to explain how lawmakersby banishing the profit motive in favor of the salarytransformed that relationshipforever.

Toward a Pure Theory of Money

Thomas Quint and Martin Shubik

Using simple but rigorously defined mathematical models, Thomas Quint and Martin Shubik explore monetary control in a simple exchange economy. Examining how money enters, circulates, and exits an economy, they consider the nature of trading systems and the role of government authority in the exchange of consumer goods for storable money; exchanges made with durable currency, such as gold; fiat currency, which is flexible but has no consumption value; conditions under which borrowers can declare bankruptcy; and the distinctions between individuals who lend their own money, and financiers, who lend others.

Investment in Blood

The True Cost of Britains Afghan War Frank Ledwidge

In this follow-up to his much-praised book Losing Small Wars: British Military Failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, Frank Ledwidge argues that Britain has paid a heavy costboth financially and in human termsfor its involvement in the Afghanistan war. Ledwidge calculates the high price paid by British soldiers and their families, taxpayers in the United Kingdom, and, most importantly, Afghan citizens, highlighting the thousands of deaths and injuries, the enormous amount of money spent bolstering a corrupt Afghan government, and the long-term damage done to the British militarys internationalreputation. In this hard-hitting expos, based on interviews, rigorous on-the-ground research, and official information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Ledwidge demonstrates the folly of Britains extended participation in an unwinnable war. Arguing that the only true beneficiaries of the conflict are development consultants, international arms dealers, and Afghan drug kingpins, he provides a powerful, eyeopening, and often heartbreaking account of military adventurism gone horriblywrong.
Frank Ledwidge served as a naval intelligence officer in the Balkan wars and Iraq, and as a civilian justice advisor inAfghanistan.

A History of Indigenous Claims in the United States David E. Wilkins

This book, the first of its kind, comprehensively explores Native American claims against the United States government over the past two centuries. Despite the federal governments multiple attempts to redress indigenous claims, a close examination reveals that even when compensatory programs were instituted, Native peoples never attained a genuine sense of justice. David E. Wilkins addresses the important question of what one nation owes another when the balance of rights, resources, and responsibilities have been negotiated through treaties. How does the United States assure that guarantees made to tribal nations, whether through a century old treaty or a modern day compact, remain viable andlasting?

Walter Benjamins Hypothetical French Trauerspiel

Yale French Studies Series

Edited by Hall Bjrnstad and Katherine Ibbett

In the summer of 1927, Walter Benjamin wrote about a possible future project on what he called French Trauerspiel, or mourning drama. In this volume of Yale French Studies, an international team of leading scholars of early modern Europe takes its cue from that lapsed project to reread the seventeenth-century French tragic canon as Trauerspiel. These new readings draw attention to early modern French theaters reflections on chance and contingency, political compromise, the question of allegory, the philosophy of the provisional, the place of sound, and the status of thecreaturely.

Hall Bjrnstad is assistant professor of French at Indiana University. Katherine Ibbett is reader in early modern studies at University College, London.

Field Experiments and Their Critics

Essays on the Uses and Abuses of Experimentation in the Social Sciences

Edited by Dawn Langan Teele

In recent years, social scientists have engaged in a deep debate over the methods appropriate to their research. Their long reliance on passive observational collection of information has been challenged by proponents of experimental methods designed to precisely infer causal effects through active intervention in the social world. Some scholars claim that field experiments represent a new gold standard and the best way forward, while others insist that these methods carry inherent inconsistencies, limitations, or ethical dilemmas that observational approaches do not. This unique collection of essays by the most influential figures on every side of this debate reveals its most important stakes and will provide useful guidance to students and scholars in manydisciplines.

A Revolutionarys Life Joshua Rubenstein

Leon Trotsky was both a world-class intellectual and a man capable of the most narrow-minded ideological dogmatism. In Joshua Rubensteins interpretation, Trotsky emerges as a brilliant and brilliantly flawed manmentally acute and impatient with others, one of the finest students of contemporary politics who refused to engage in the nitty-gritty of party organization in the 1920s when Stalin was maneuvering, inexorably, toward Trotskys own politicaloblivion. Rubenstein does him justice as an intellectual and a man of action: he captures the brilliance, courage and grandeur of a meteoric rise.... [An] accessible introduction to a flawed but fascinating 20th-century giant.Times Higher Education An exemplary biography.... Rubenstein depicts Trotsky as a tragic hero, a complex man whose brilliance and fallibility were inseparable.Judith Maas,Jewish Advocate Fast-paced and engaging, Rubensteins brief biography provides a solid introduction to the period and a detailed examination of a man much studied but little understood.Publishers Weekly
Joshua Rubenstein was a staff member of Amnesty International USA from 1975 to 2012 and is a longtime associate at Harvard Universitys Davis Center for Russian and EurasianStudies.

With Contributions by David de Ferranti, Monte Malach,  ArielPablos-Mndez, Hilary Tabish, and Lilian Gomory Wu

With an introduction by Sheena Wagstaff and an interview with the artist by Ian Alteveer and NavinaNajat Haidar
Named the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year for 2013, Imran Qureshi combines traditional motifs and techniques of Islamic art with contemporary reflections on the relationship between Islam and the West. His investigations into ornamentation reference both the miniature painting of the Mughal tradition, in which he was trained, and large, site-specific installations in architectural space, which address both the building itself and its historical and political meanings. In May 2013, Qureshi will create the latest rooftop installation for the Metropolitan Museum. This volume discusses the specific interplay between the artists vision and the particulars of the space for which the work was created. An interview with Qureshi highlights the traditions from which his work derives, as well as the political and aesthetic connotations that inform this latestcreation.
Sheena Wagstaff is chairman of the department of modern and contemporary art; Ian Alteveer is assistant curator in the department of modern and contemporary art; and Navina Najat Haidar is curator and administrator in the department of Islamic Art, all at The Metropolitan Museum ofArt.

Eva Hesse 1965

 ith a foreword by Susan Fisher Sterling and contributions by W Jo Applin, Todd Alden, and Kirsten Swenson
In 1964 the industrialist Friedrich Arnhard Scheidt invited Eva Hesse (19361970) and her husband, Tom Doyle, to a residency in Kettwig an der Ruhr, Germany. The following fifteen months marked a significant transformation in Hesses practice. The artists studio space was located in an abandoned textile factory that contained machine parts, tools, and materials that served as inspiration for her complex, linear mechanical drawings and paintings. In 1965 Hesse expanded on this theme and began using objects found in the factory and papier-mch to produce a series of fourteen vibrantly colored reliefs that venture into three-dimensional space with such materials as wood, metal, and cord protruding from the pictureplane. With dynamic new scholarship and previously unpublished illustrations, Eva Hesse 1965 highlights key drawings, paintings, and reliefs from this pivotal time and demonstrates how the artist was able to rethink her approach to color, materials, and dimensional space and begin moving toward sculpture, preparing herself for the momentous strides that she would take upon her return to NewYork.

Espo, perhaps more famously known as Steve Powers, is an artist, sign painter, and self-confessed raconteur based in New York City. Having made the journey from graffiti writer to Fulbright scholar, Powers has progressed from traditional illicit work to highly conceptual installations, from classical sign painting to visionary community projects, utilizing an endearingly impudent, witty style regardless of the medium or theme he chooses. With a mastery of wordplay and typography intertwined in his search for the perfect triad of candor, clarity, and creativity, Powers forms an aesthetic that disrupts the fine line between artist and artisan, between art and advertising, and celebrates the beauty and sincerity of the vernacular within each project he undertakes. Born and raised in West Philadelphia, Powers first remembers painting at about the age of three or four, when he says he mashed crayons over every wall from three feet down in his family home. Although his artistic instincts were set from an early age, his entrance into graffiti came admittedly late, however. He first began to tag around his neighborhood when he was sixteen and it satisfied, as he puts it, his need for line, color, [and] adventure. Powers immediately understood graffiti as a compromise of crimes, a practice that contained the allure of the illicit yet which could produce a highly refined aesthetic, a world away from the staid still lifes he was being instructed in at his art classes. While his growing love of graffiti pushed him toward Philadelphias University of the Arts, at the same time Powers was founding, writing, and editing the legendary On the Go magazine, a pioneering graffiti and hip-hop publication that he ran between 1988 and 1996. He continued to experiment with his graffiti, however, and by 1997, after deciding to focus on his artwork more seriously, Powers initiated his groundbreaking Exterior Surface Painting Outreach project (an inversely formed acronym of his graffiti name), which represented a radical new approach in both formal and conceptual terms. Working on the already graffitied surfaces of shop front shutters, and taking on the guise of a public employee (working openly during the day and providing his believably bureaucratic acronym if questioned), Powers painted huge blocks of either white or silver on top of the existing graffiti, subsequently marking out his name in the negative space through a

1-2 Lodz, Poland, 2011

Not many graffiti artists like to paint the streets in the nude, but Kenor is not just any graffiti artist. A self-proclaimed extraterrestrial, and a born performer, Kenors organic, kaleidoscopic productions are geometric representations of sound and movement, visual interpretations of music and dance in two-dimensional form. Their multicolored, effervescent hues and fluid, protean contours force us to enter his paintings, to travel within what he terms his abstract architecture. Until 2000, Kenor was focused on more traditional urban art, obsessed with typography, logos, and textual experimentation. Yet as the Barcelona movement gathered pace, Kenor found himself wrapped up within the changes, forming designs that functioned, in his own words, as parallel worlds, dreams, hopes, illusions, questions, options, and exits. He is driven to transform the city, to counteract the encroaching gray with a wealth of color, to decorate the dead citiesin his memorable phrase to open up the street as a public gallery for everyone. He is moved by the

texture of the city, the broken and tired parts, the boundaries. Such sites call to himthey necessitate repair, resuscitation, reanimation. Through both his words and images, Kenor has become something of a spokesperson against the increasing commodification of Barcelonas street culture, railing against the new laws that have begun to repress so much of the citys previously vibrant urban life. From skateboarding to performance art, break-dancing to busking, street practices have been curtailedthough the city still identifies itself with a liberal, cultural heritage: They support for a day the same people they punish, to win the sympathy of the young people, Kenor complains. He strives to keep his work constantly evolving, recreating spaces of freedom, in another of his vivid analogies. Now working on a monumental scale, covering walls all over the world, Kenor has also moved into new realmsnot only installations and sculptures, but a deeper progression into video and performance art. Films such as Dentro de Mi and Cualquier Lugar, un Dia Cualquiera in particular display the connection between dance and inscription, the choreography of the image. Metamorphosing his art like a living organism, his works grow into ever new dimensions, captured by the infinite possibilities of the movement that surrounds us.

A Photographic Memoir Lee Friedlander

The public outpouring of support for newly elected President John F. Kennedy in 1960 was only exceeded in scope and magnitude by the manifestations of grief and mourning after his assassination in 1963. These responses had an unusually strong visual component: likenesses of the president were framed in shop windows, pinned to living room walls, and plastered in public spaces across thenation. Fifty years after Kennedys death, this book observes the publics reaction to the presidents election and assassination, featuring many photographs published here for the first time. In his travels throughout America during this period, Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) encountered these responses and photographed what he witnessed. From Washington, D.C., to Buffalo to Minneapolis to Los Angeles, Friedlander has captured a moment in American history that galvanized the nation and continues to resonatetoday.

Roof Life

Svetlana Alpers
Svetlana Alpers has spent a lifetime looking at art. She writes here about looking as a way of being in the world. This is not a memoir. It does not take the form of a story. It is instead a kind of self-portrait, or perhaps several self-portraits. Alpers has kept files: records of what she saw out the windows of her loft in New York; art sold, bought, or seen on her walls; foods found in markets and prepared in places where she lived; and herself seen in photographs, drawings, and paintings made by others. She reconstructs the life of her Russian grandfather in a distant and tumultuous Europe of a centuryago. Roof Life made it all come together. The title refers to what one discovers looking out from high windows with distant and distinctive views. It refers to the way ones attention is sharpened by confronting things that are unfamiliar, or that are made to appear unfamiliar by circumstances. It describes the immediacy ofdistance.
Svetlana Alpers is Professor Emerita, History of Art, at the University of California, Berkeley, and visiting scholar at the Department of Fine Arts, New York University. She divides her time between New York City andFrance.

Tell It With Pride

The 54th Massachusetts Regiment and Augustus Saint-Gaudens Shaw Memorial Sarah Greenough and Nancy Anderson
With a foreword by Richard J. Powell and contributions by Lindsay Harris and Rene Ater 

A rich narrative and detailed documentation of the 54th regiment give insight into Augustus Saint-Gaudens famous Civil War Memorial
On July 18, 1863, six months after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, one of the first American units composed of African Americans stormed Fort Wagner in South Carolina, led by Colonel Robert Shaw Gould. Although the regiment suffered great losses, the Massachusetts 54th Volunteer Infantry legitimized the idea of blacks serving in the military, and Lincoln considered their sacrifice a turning point in the Civil War. Twenty years later, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens began work on a bronze memorial for this heroic troop, which was installed on the Boston Common in1897. Tell ItWith Prideexplores the enduring significance of this beloved monument. Original daguerreotypes, carte-de-visite portraits, and a full listing of the regiments members, along with vintage and contemporary artworks by Matthew Brady, Lewis Hine, and Carrie Mae Weems tell the story of the legacy of the Battle of Fort Wagner and the role of photography in memorializing the regiment then andnow.

Interwoven Globe

A global exploration of textile design and its far-reaching influence on aesthetics, commerce, and taste
Beginning in the 16th century, the golden age of European navigation created a vigorous textile trade, and a breathtaking variety of textile designs subsequently spread across the globe. Trade textiles blended the traditional designs, skills, and tastes of their cultures of origin, with new techniques learned through global exchange, creating beautiful new works that are also historically fascinating. Interwoven Globe is the first book to analyze these textiles within the larger history of trade and design. Richly illustrated texts explore the interrelationship of textiles, commerce, and taste from the age of discovery to the 19th century, including a detailed discussion of 120 illuminating works. From the elaborate dyed and painted cotton goods of India to the sumptuous silks of Japan, China, Turkey, and Iran, the paths of influence are traced westward to Europe and the Americas. Essential to this exchange was the trade in highly valued natural dyes and dye products, underscoring the influence of global exploration on the aesthetics and production techniques of textiles, and the resulting fashion for the exotic.

The Rage for Prints at the Fin de Sicle Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho and Marije Vellekoop
No one pays attention nowadays to anything but prints; its a rage, the young generation produces nothing else.Camille Pissarro, 1897
In the years between 1890 and 1905, Paris witnessed a revolution in printmaking. Before this time, prints had primarily served reproductive or political ends, but, as the century came to a close, artistic quality became paramount, and printmaking blossomed into an autonomous art form. This gorgeously illustrated and accessibly written book looks at the circumstances in which this terrific new enthusiasm for prints unfolded; the principal players in its development; and the various printmaking techniques beingused. Most modern French artists experimented with lithographs, etchings, or woodcuts, many of which were published in small editions intended for art connoisseurs and collectors. Their popularity, however, was not confined to these exclusive groups. Colorful prints designed by Pierre Bonnard, Paul Gauguin, HenriGabriel Ibels, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Edouard Vuillard, among others, were seen and admired all over Paris in the form of illustrated theater programs, sheet music, magazines, books, and streetposters. Featuring highlights from the Van Gogh Museum, which houses a superb collection of prints from fin-desicle Paris, this enlightening volume shows how the most influential artists of the day turned their hands to making beautiful impressionsprints that were works of art inthemselves.

Exhibiting Fashion
Before and After 1971 Judith Clark and Amy de la Haye
A vivid history of fashion exhibitions that informs contemporary curating practices, from two experts in the field
With the dramatic increase in popularity of fashion exhibitions over the past decade, this groundbreaking book provides a timely look at the evolution of the practice, taking as its anchor the seminal 1971 Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition Fashion: An Anthology by Cecil Beaton, revealing it to be symptomatic of a shift in museological attitudes. The authors combined experience of more than forty years, one in architecture and exhibition design and the other in fashion history and curating, informs their detailed account of the exhibition. Accompanied by photographs of Beatons museum work published here for the first time, their narrative establishes a perspective from which to view working practicestoday. Research into international exhibitions from the early 20th century to the present results in some 150 stunning illustrations, including previously unpublished exhibition photographs and out-of-print documents. Through this research and the testimony of curators, exhibition designers, and mannequin manufacturers, the authors discover striking continuity in the development of the fundamental equation of mannequin, dress, and mise-en-scne. A comprehensive chronology from 1971 illustrates the exponential rise in exhibitions of Western dress on an internationalscale.

A Queer History of Fashion

From the Closet to the Catwalk Edited by Valerie Steele
An unprecedented in-depth exploration of the complex interrelationship between high fashion and queer history and culture
From Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, many of the greatest fashion designers of the past century have been gay. Fashion and style have played an important role within the LGBTQ community, as well, even as early as the 18th century. This provocative book looks at the history of fashion through a queer lens, examining high fashion as a site of gay cultural production and exploring the aesthetic sensibilities and unconventional dress of LGBTQ people, especially since the 1950s, to demonstrate the centrality of gay culture to the creation of modernfashion. Contributions by some of the worlds most acclaimed scholars of gay history and fashionincluding Christopher Breward, Shaun Cole, Vicki Karaminas, Jonathan D. Katz, Peter McNeil, and Elizabeth Wilsoninvestigate topics such as the context in which key designers lives and works form part of a broader gay history; the archeology of queer attire back to the homosexual underworld of 18th-century Europe; and the influence of LGBTQ subcultural styles from the trouser suits worn by Marlene Dietrich (which inspired Yves Saint Laurents Le Smoking) to the iconography of leather. Sumptuous illustrations include both fashion photography and archivalimagery.

Strange Eggs

Claes Oldenburg and Michelle White

In 195758, after he moved to New Yorks Lower East Side, Claes Oldenburg (b. 1929) began making collages he has described as mostly done in an uncontrolled and intuitive dream mode. Made from found, printed photographic imagery, the Strange Eggs are enigmatic, surrealistic, and vastly different from the Pop art of the 1960s for which he soon becamefamous. Inspired by the original avant-garde collage artists, these works are characterized by self-contained forms, or eggs, the artist made by melding cut fragments of photographic reproductions. While many of the pieces are unrecognizable, within the amalgamations some original references are discernible: a piece of pie, the hind leg of a horse, the creased skin of a clenched fist, and the texture of concrete. These eighteen collages were first shown in their entirety at the Menil Collection in 2012 and are being published here for the first time, close to actual size and with a short text by Menil curator MichelleWhite.

Luc Tuymans Essays by Robert Storr and Toby Kamps

With contributions by Susan Sutton and Clare Elliott 

Luc Tuymans (b. 1958) is a painter engaged with figuration, using imagery that he reworks in a critical or self-critical way. He combines images from various sourcesphotographs, film stills, mirror imageswith a spare palette, unexpected cropping, and blurring to reinforce the painted images status as a replica. Perhaps more than any other genre, portraiture allows Tuymans to explore the balance between revealing and concealing, and to comment on history and itsperpetrators. Portraits: Luc Tuymans presents 35 paintings from bodies of work ranging over the artists entire career. Most seem conventional portraits Himmler, 1997/98, A Flemish Intellectual, 1995but others, such as Bloodstains, 1993, and Fingers, 1995, exhibit the artists elliptical approach to re-presentation. Tuymanss canvases are placed in counterpoint to his selections from the Menil Collection: masks, statuary, and paintings from African, ancient Mediterranean, and Native American cultures, as well as European figurative works. The assembly explores such themes as death and memorials, ritual or religion, power, evildoers andaltruism.

Robert Indiana
Beyond LOVE Barbara Haskell
With essays by Ren Paul Barilleaux and Sasha Nicholas 

An insightful and long overdue reassessment of the full scope of the career of Robert Indiana, who combined Pop Art, hard-edged abstraction, and language-based conceptualism
Robert Indianas popular LOVE works have made the esteemed Pop artist a household name. Their fame and ubiquity have also served to eclipse the rest of his dynamic, conceptually charged work. Robert Indiana is a compelling reassessment of the artists contributions to American art during his long and prolificcareer. Indiana (b. 1928) has explored the power of language, American identity, and personal history for five decades. Although visually dazzling and apparently cheerful on the surface, his imagery has a depth and a darkness that draws on his own biography as well as on the myths, history, and literature of the United States. This insightful book repositions him as a seminal figure of the 1960s and 1970s, whose artistic genius combined Pop Art, hard-edged abstraction, and language-based conceptualism. With a generous illustration program, an appendix of the artists interviews and statements, and essays by leading experts, this book provides a long overdue analysis of the development of Indianas career, his relationship to early 20th-century American painters, and his influence on contemporary language-based artists. In addition to a chronology, selected exhibition history, and selected bibliography, Robert Indiana includes the transcript from a round table discussion with renowned scholars, including Thomas Crow, Robert Storr, John Wilmerding, and Robert PincusWitten offering thoughts on the significance of Indiana and hisart.

Cats and Girls

Sabine Rewald
An insightful new look at Balthuss ongoing fascination with cats and girls, including his controversial paintings of young adolescents
Balthuss lifelong curiosity with the ambiguities and dark side of childhood resulted in his best-known and most iconic works. In these pictures, Balthus (1908 2001) mingles intuition into his young sitters psyches with overt erotic desire and forbidding austerity, making them among the most powerful depictions of childhood and adolescence ever committed to canvas. Often included in these scenes are enigmatic cats, possible stand-ins for the artisthimself. Balthus: Cats and Girls is the first book devoted to this subject, focusing on the early decades of the artists career from the mid-1930s to the 1950s. Drawing on extensive knowledge of the artists life and work, as well as on interviews with Balthus and the models themselves, Sabine Rewald explores the origins and permutations of Balthuss obsessions with adolescents and felines. She addresses the crucial influence of such key figures as poet Rainer Maria Rilke, his mothers lover, who acted as Balthuss surrogate father, but also includes the previously unknown voices of the girl models: their recollections and comments provide a unique perspective on some of the best known and most controversial paintings of the 20thcentury.

Lina Bo Bardi
Zeuler R. M. de A. Lima
With a foreword by Barry Bergdoll 

The first major retrospective of the Brazilian modernist architects life and work
Lina Bo Bardi (19141992), one of the most important architects working in Latin America in the 20th century, was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil with her husband in 1946. In Brazil, her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials like concrete and glass, she added popular building materials and naturalistic forms to her design palette, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that welcomed publiclife. Lina Bo Bardiis the first comprehensive study of BoBardis career and showcases author Zeuler Limas extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architects activities on two continents and in five cities.The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics, and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardis intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral, and iconic works ofdesign.

The Houses of Louis Kahn

George H. Marcus and William Whitaker
A stunning celebration of the architects residential masterpieces
Louis Kahn (19011974), one of the most important architects of the postwar period, is widely admired for his great monumental works, including the Kimbell Art Museum, the Salk Institute, and the National Assembly Complex in Bangladesh. However, the importance of his houses has been largely overlooked. This beautiful book is the first to look at Kahns nine major private houses. Beginning with his earliest encounters with Modernism in the late 1920s and continuing through his iconic work of the 1960s and 1970s, the authors trace the evolution of the architects thinking, which began and matured through his design of houses and their interiors, a process inspired by his interactions with clients and his admiration for vernacular buildingtraditions. Richly illustrated with new and period photographs and original drawings, as well as previously unpublished materials from personal interviews, archives, and Kahns own writings, The Houses of Louis Kahn shows how his ideas about domestic spaces challenged conventions, much like his major public commissions, and were developed into one of the most remarkable expressions of the Americanhouse.

Van Gogh Repetitions

Eliza Rathbone and William Robinson
With Elizabeth Steele and Marcia Steele 

A fascinating look at van Goghs repetitions multiple versions of single compositionsand what they reveal about the artist and his creative process
Popular perceptions of Vincent van Gogh (18531890) frequently envision the painter working before nature in an emotional frenzy, yet the artists method was more often controlled and deliberate. Van Gogh Repetitions is the first book to focus on the artists repetitions, a term he used to describe his process of producing multiple versions of a composition. Van Gogh ultimately developed a conceptual framework that distinguished his rptitions from copies, tudes, tableaux, and dcorations, balancing modernist aspirations toward originality with the creation of multiples. The artists practice of producing repetitions was far more extensive and vital to his creative process than is commonlyrecognized. In this groundbreaking and beautifully illustrated book, a series of essays considers the many unresolved issues and controversies surrounding the repetitions, which include their origins, development, and meaning in van Goghs art. Analyses of specific paintings make use of technical and analytical examinations to understand how the artist worked, as well as to improve techniques for preserving and restoring his artworks in thefuture.

Fernand Lger and the Modern City

Edited by Anna Vallye
With contributions by Christian Derouet, Maria Gough, Stuart Liebman, Spyros Papapetros,  Anna Vallye, and Jennifer Wild

An insightful look at the dynamic relationship between modern art and modern urban life in 1920s Paris through the lens of Fernand Lgers masterpiece The City
With his landmark 1919 painting The City, Fernand Lger (18811955) inaugurated a vitally experimental decade during which he and others redefined the practice of painting in confrontation with the forms of cultural production that were central to urban life, ranging from graphic and advertising design to theater, dance, film, and architecture. This catalogue casts new light on the painting (reproducing all of its studies together for the first time), the avant-garde use of print media, and Lgers fascination with cinema and architecture, and contextualizes a network of international avant-gardesincluding Blaise Cendrars, Le Corbusier, Jean Epstein, Piet Mondrian, Amde Ozenfant, Francis Picabia, and Theo van Doesburgin relation to Lger. Featuring nearly 250 images of paintings, architectural designs, models, posters, set designs, and film stills and an anthology of relevant historical texts not previously published in English, this handsome volume conveys the spirit of experimentation of the 1920s. Scholars in the fields of art, architecture, and film history offer a deeper understanding of the relationship between art and the modern urban experience that defined this significant chapter in the history of modernart.

Dressing Dangerously
Jonathan Faiers

Dysfunctional Fashion in Film

A thought-provoking examination of the challenging and sometimes sinister roles that fashion has played in the history of cinema
When Marlene Dietrich makes her entrance in Alfred Hitchcocks Stage Fright, the Dior dress she wears immediately draws the viewers attentionnot because of its designer label, but owing to the dramatic blood stains ruining its stylish surface. Fashion in film goes far beyond glamorous costumes on glamorous stars, as Jonathan Faiers proves in Dressing Dangerously, a pioneering study of the cinematic negative wardrobe revealed in mainstream movies. The book emphasizes how problematic, even shocking depictions of dress, until now largely overlooked, play pivotal roles in shaping filmnarrative. Integrating fashion theory, film analysis, and literature, the insightful text investigates the ways cinema influences fashion and, conversely, how fashion speaks to film. The book also reveals how clothing, imbued with its own symbolic meaning, can be read much like a text; when used to provocative effect, for example, in films such as Villain, Leave Her to Heaven, and Casino, the stars costumes as well as their actions elicit a complex set of emotional responses. Dressing Dangerously brings together a wealth of illustrations, from glossy publicity photos featuring immaculately dressed stars to film stills that capture dangerously fashionablemoments.

The Portrait in Vienna 1900 Gemma Blackshaw

Facing the Modern

An engaging look at how the middle classes of fin-de-sicle Vienna used innovative portraiture to define their identity
During the great flourishing of modern art in fin-desicle Vienna, artists of that city focused on images of individuals. Their portraits depict artists, patrons, families, friends, intellectual allies, and society celebrities from the upwardly mobile middle classes. Viewed as a whole, the images allow us to reconstruct the subjects shifting identities as the Austro-Hungarian Empire underwent dramatic political changes, from the 1867 Ausgleich (Compromise) to the end of World War I. This is viewed as a time when the avant-garde overthrew the academy, yet Facing the Modern tells a more complex story of the time through thought-provoking texts by numerous leading art historians. Their writings examine paintings by innovative artists such as Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, and Egon Schiele alongside earlier works, blurring the conventionally-held distinctions between 19th-century and early-20th-century art, and revealing surprising continuities in the production and consumption of portraits. This compelling book features works not only by famous names but also by lesser-known female and Jewish artists, giving a more complete picture of thetime.

Tod Williams and Billie Tsien
An alluring glimpse into magnificent Cornelllike boxes created by some of the worlds leading architects and designers
Inspired by the idea of the wunderkammerwonderroom or cabinet of curiositiesthat originated during the Renaissance, world-renowned architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien invited 42 celebrated architects and designers from around the world to create their own wunderkammers, filling boxes with objects that inspire them. This delightful book gathers together the varied, evocative wunderkammers along with accompanying statements by their architect-creators, including such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Toyo Ito, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Peter Eisenman, Steven Holl, Richard Meier, Murray Moss, Dibdo Francis Ker, Juhani Pallasmaa, Elias Torres, and PeterZumthor. An introduction by Williams and Tsien explains their fascination with the wunderkammer and looks at their own history of collecting. The boxes, each spotlighted in its own section, are explored through each architects essay; working drawings and sketchbook pages; construction and installation photos; a list of the items contained; and a photograph of the finalbox. Wunderkammer offers a new way to think about art and inventiveness, collection and meaning in everydayobjects.

American Masterworks from The Phillips Collection, 18501970 Edited by Susan Behrends Frank
With essays by Susan Behrends Frank and Eliza Rathbone 

A comprehensive survey of The Phillips Collections spectacular holdings in American art

American art has been essential to The Phillips Collection since its founding by Duncan Phillips in 1921. Phillipss collecting interests were decidedly against the grain: he acquired the work of living American artists when it was unpopular to do so and promoted diversity, as seen in works by self-taught artists, artists of color, and naturalized Americans, resulting in a rich assembly of independent-minded artists, including Milton Avery, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, and Georgia OKeeffe. The Phillips Collections superb collection of American art, acquired over half a century, is presented here for the first time in a comprehensive overview, featuring 160 works from heroes of the late 19th centurysuch as William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins, and Winslow Homer, who set the course for modern art in Americato abstract expressionists Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Adolph Gottlieb, and Mark Rothko, whose efforts to create a new visual language following World War II brought a new global significance to American art.

Guillaume Fonkenell
With essays by Laura D. Corey, Paula Deitz, Bruce Guenther, and Sarah Kennel 

A stunning new look at the Tuileries Garden and its importance to the history of art and landscape architecture
The Tuileries Garden is a masterpiece of garden design and one of the worlds most iconic public art spaces. Designed for Louis XIV by landscape architect Andr Le Ntre, it served the now-destroyed Tuileries Palace. It was opened to the public in 1667, becoming one of the first public gardens in Europe. The garden has always been a place for Parisians to convene, celebrate, and promenade, and art has played an important role throughout its history. Monumental sculptures give the garden the air of an outdoor museum, and the gardens beautiful backdrop has inspired artists from Edouard Manet to AndrKertsz. The Art of the Louvres Tuileries Garden brings together 100 works of art, including paintings and sculptures,as well as documentary photographs, prints, and models illuminating the gardens rich history. Beautifully illustrated essays by leading scholars of art and garden studies highlight the significance of the Tuileries Garden to works of art from the past 300 years and reaffirm its importance to the history of landscapearchitecture.

Art and Appetite

American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine Edited by Judith A. Barter

 ith essays by Judith A. Barter, Annelise K. Madsen, Sarah Kelly Oehler, Ellen E. Roberts, and W Nancy Siegel

An appealing exploration of the art and culture of food in 18th- through 20th-century America
Food has always been an important source of knowledge about culture and society. Art and Appetite takes a fascinating new look at depictions of food in American art, demonstrating that the artists representations of edibles offer thoughtful reflection on the cultural, political, economic, and social moments in which they were created. Using food as an emblem, artists were able to both celebrate and critique their society, expressing ideas relating to politics, race, class, gender, and commerce. Focusing on the late 18th century through the Pop artists of the 20th century, this lively publication investigates the many meanings and interpretations of eating inAmerica. Richly illustrated, Art and Appetite features still life and trompe loeil painting, sculpture, and other works by such celebrated artists as William Merritt Chase, John Singleton Copley, Elizabeth Paxton, Norman Bel Geddes, Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Alice Neel, Wayne Thiebaud, Roy Lichtenstein, and many more. Essays by leading experts address topics including the horticultural and botanical underpinnings of still-life paintings, the history of alcohol consumption in the United States, Thanksgiving, and food in the world of Pop art. In addition to the images and essays, this book includes a selection of 18th- and 19th-century recipes for all-American dishes including molasses cake, stewed terrapin, rice blancmange, and roast calfshead.

History of Design

Decorative Arts and Material Culture, 14002000 Edited by Pat Kirkham and Susan Weber

A survey of spectacular breadth, covering the history of decorative arts and design worldwide over the past six hundred years
Spanning six centuries of global design, this farreaching survey is the first to offer an account of the vast history of decorative arts and design produced in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Indian subcontinent, and the Islamic world, from 1400 to the present. Meticulously documented and lavishly illustrated, the volume covers interiors, furniture, textiles and dress, glass, graphics, metalwork, ceramics, exhibitions, product design, landscape and garden design, and theater and film design. Divided into four chronological sections, each of which is subdivided geographically, the authors elucidate the evolution of style, form, materials, and techniques, and address vital issues such as gender, race, patronage, cultural appropriation, continuity versus innovation, and high versus lowculture. Leading authorities in design history and decorative arts studies present hundreds of objects in their contemporary contexts, demonstrating the overwhelming extent to which the applied arts have enriched customs, ceremony, and daily life worldwide over the past six hundred years. This ambitious, landmark publication is essential reading, contributing a definitive classic to the existing scholarship on design, decorative arts, and material culture, while also introducing these subjects to new readers in a comprehensive, erudite book with widespreadappeal.

Ink Art

Past as Present in Contemporary China Maxwell K. Hearn

With contributions by Wu Hung 

An illuminating investigation into how contemporary Chinese artists have reinterpreted past traditions to forge new artistic paths
The Chinese tradition of ink art stretches far beyond works in ink, to embrace a set of aesthetic principles centered on renewal and reinterpretation of the past. The 80 works, by 40 contemporary artists, featured in Ink Art range from variations on the written word to radical abstractions to contemporary landscapes, and represent media as diverse as photography, video, ceramic, wood, bronze, and stainless steelas well as traditional ink (which might be on cardboard, polyester, or the human body). They include such iconic pieces as Book from the Sky by Xu Bing and Han Jar Overpainted with Coca Cola Logo by Ai Weiwei, pseudo-characters by Gu Wenda, handscrolls by Liu Dan, and videos and animation by Qiu Anxiong and Chen Shaoxiong. The illuminating texts give a history of contemporary Chinese ink painting and how it is perceived in the West. A discussion of the works themselves show how they respond to, subvert, or reinterpret the traditional idioms to define a modern artistic identity that remains both Chinese andglobal.

Adrian Sassoon

Jewels by JAR
Called the Faberg of our time by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant color and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pav sapphires and amethysts. The New York Times has described his jewelry as belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory, while JAR himself has characterized his work as somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers. This book, featuring nearly 40 pieces from throughout JARs career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewelry creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available inEnglish.
Adrian Sassoon is a renowned gallerist and critic living inLondon.

The American West in Bronze, 18501925

Thomas Brent Smith and Thayer Tolles
 ith contributions by Carol Clark, Brian Dippie, W PeterH.Hassrick, Karen Lemmey, and Jessica Murphy
Themes of the American West have been enduringly popular, and The American West in Bronze features sixty-five iconic bronzes that display a range of subjects, from portrayals of the noble Indian to rough-andtumble scenes of rowdy cowboys to tributes to the pioneers who settled the lands west of the Mississippi. Fascinating texts offer a fresh look at the roles that artists played in creating interpretations of the vanishing Westwhether based on fact, fiction, or something in-between. These artists, including Charles M. Russell and Frederic Remington, embody a range of life experiences and artistic approaches. Some grew up in the West and based their artwork on first-hand experience, while others never set foot west of the Rockies. Four thematic sectionsIndians, animals, cowboys, and settlersare illustrated with new photography and provide a cultural overview to the works presented. Also included are biographies of the artists, each illustrated with a vintage portrait, plus an illustrated chronology of historical and artisticevents.

Erwin Blumenfeld
Edited by Ute Eskildsen
A revelatory book about the life and work of an important fashion photographer and artist
Erwin Blumenfeld (18971969) was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His work offers a unique perspective on the society and politics of the 1930s through the 60s. Born in Berlin, Blumenfelds peripatetic career took him first to Amsterdam and then to Paris, where his work in fashion photography began at Vogue in 1938. After two years in a French concentration camp, he made his way to the United Statesand established himself as an eminent fashion photographer. Over one hundred of his photographs featured on the covers of prominent fashion and general interest magazines, including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Life, Look, and Cosmopolitan. Often minimalist, mainly in color, these photographs testify to Blumenfelds lifelong interest inexperimentation. This landmark publication broadens our understanding of Blumenfelds innovations, reuniting all the media used by the artist throughout his long career: drawing, photography, photomontage, and collage. The motifs of his experimental, sometimes overtly political, black-and-white photographs appear alongside numerous self-portraits and celebrity portraits, as well as the fashion photographs for which he is most known. Presenting some 150 images, this book provides a fresh understanding of Blumenfelds photography for the commercial worlds of fashion and advertising.
Ute Eskildsen is deputy director and head of the photography collections for the Museum Folkwang, Essen.

Ireland and the Picturesque

Design, Landscape Painting, and Tourism, 17001840 Finola OKane

That Ireland is picturesque is a well-worn clich, but little is understood of how this perception was created, painted, and manipulated during the long 18th century. This book positions Ireland at the core of the picturesques development and argues for a far greater degree of Irish influence on the course of European landscape theory and design. Positioned offaxis from the greater force-field, and off-shore from mainland Europe and America, where better to cultivate the oblique perspective? This book charts the creation of picturesque Ireland, while exploring in detail the role and reach of landscape painting in the planning, publishing, landscaping and design of Irelands historic landscapes, towns, and tourist routes. Thus it is also a history of the physical shaping of Ireland as a tourist destination, one of the earliest, most calculated, and most successful in theworld.

Men from the Ministry

How Britain Saved Its Heritage Simon Thurley

Between 1900 and 1950 the British state amassed a huge collection of over 800 historic buildings, monuments, and sites and opened themto the public. This engaging book explains why the extraordinary collecting frenzy took place, locating it in the fragile and nostalgic atmosphere of the interwar years, dominated by neo-romanticism and cultural protectionism. The governments activities were mirrored by the establishment of dozens of voluntary bodies, including the Council for the Protection of Rural England, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, and the National Trust. Men from the Ministry sets all this activity, for the first time, in its political, economic and cultural contexts,painting a picture of a country traumatized by war, fearful of losing what was left of its history, and a government that actively set out to protect them. It dissects a government program that established a modern state on deep historical and ruralroots.

The Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland

A History Annette Carruthers
This authoritative book is the first to chronicle the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland. Arts and Crafts ideas appeared there from the 1860s, but not until after 1890 did they emerge from artistic circles and rise to popularity among the wider public. The heyday of the movement occurred between 1890 and 1914, a time when Scotlands art schools energetically promoted new design and the Scottish Home Industries Association campaigned to revive rural crafts. Across the country the movement influenced the look of domestic and church buildings, as well as the stained glass, metalwork, textiles, and other furnishings that adorned them. Art schools, workshops, and associations helped shape the Arts and Crafts style, as did individuals such as Ann Macbeth, W. R. Lethaby, Robert Lorimer, M. H. Baillie Scott, Douglas Strachan, Phoebe Traquair, and James Cromar Watt, among other well-known and previously overlooked figures. These architects, artists, and designers together contributed to the expansion and evolution of the movement both within and beyond Scotlandsborders.

Exhibiting Englishness

John Boydells Shakespeare Gallery and the Formation of a National Aesthetic Rosie Dias
In the late 18th century, as a wave of English nationalism swept the country, the printseller John Boydell set out to create an ambitious exhibition space, one devoted to promoting and fostering a distinctly English style of history painting. With its very name, the Shakespeare Gallery signaled to Londoners that the artworks on display shared an undisputed quality and a national spirit. Exhibiting Englishness explores the responses of key artists of the period to Boydells venture and sheds new light on the gallerys role in the larger context of Britishart. Tracking the shift away from academic and Continental European styles of history painting, the book analyzes the works of such artists as Joshua Reynolds, Henry Fuseli, James Northcote, Robert Smirke, Thomas Banks, and William Hamilton, laying out their diverse ways of expressing notions of individualism, humor, eccentricity, and naturalism. Exhibiting Englishness also argues that Boydells gallery radically redefined the dynamics of display and cultural aesthetics at that time, shaping both an English school of painting and modern exhibitionpractices.

Temporary Architecture for Georgian Festivals Melanie Doderer-Winkler

A thoroughly original study of ephemeral architecture and design, Magnificent Entertainments examines the spectacular displays created for large-scale public celebrations in the Georgian period. The book focuses on a number of specific eventsincluding royal weddings, coronations, battle victories, and birthday ftesthat employed elaborate decorative measures to outshine the typical festivities of the day. Some of these elements, ranging from floral displays and scenery to music and light shows, transformed existing venues into unfamiliar marvels; other times, completely new settings were devised for short-livedoccasions. Drawing on primary sources such as commemorative prints, newspaper accounts, and diary entries, the book investigates just how essential these fanciful designs were in creating events with lasting impact and popular appeal. The author also delves into the various materials used for construction and embellishment: applications of sugar, sand, marble dust, or chalk lent luster and color to surfaces, while stand-alone firework temples and temporary reception rooms were often crafted of little more than wood, canvas, paint, andpaste.

The Pinup and the Primitive Ellen McBreen

Long perceived as a side pursuit to his celebrated painting career, Henri Matisses sculpture receives an overdue critical examination in this book. Beginning in 1906, soon after the artist acquired his first African sculpture, Matisse found inspiration in erotic and ethnographic photography, which had become inexpensively mass-produced thanks to advances in halftone technology. Working from these two radically different depictions of the bodyone hand carved, the other mechanically madewas a foundational method for Matisse and crucial to the development of his pre-World WarIabstraction. Far from a simple narrative of the artist discovering Africa, the highly original readings of Matisses Sculpture plot new coordinates of study for early 20th-century primitivism. It examines the larger constructs of thought at the time, with a penetrating analysis of anthropology, popular erotica, and the visual culture of French. In addition, the book repositions Matisses sculptural practice, particularly in regard to its investigations of race and sexuality, as a cornerstone of his prolificcareer.
Ellen McBreen is assistant professor in the department of art and art history at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts.

Art in Late Renaissance Siena John Marciari and Suzanne Boorsch

Francesco Vanni

With contributions by Jamie Gabbarelli and Alexa A. Greist 

Francesco Vanni (1563/641610) was the most important artist in Siena at the turn of the 17th century. His works combine dazzling technical virtuosity and brilliant coloring with the naturalistic approach employed by his more famous contemporaries Annibale Carracci and Caravaggio. He painted altarpieces for every significant church in Siena, as well as for Saint Peters and other churches inRome. Beautifully illustrated and featuring new research, Francesco Vanni: Art in Late Renaissance Siena is the definitive resource on the artist. John Marciari investigates Vannis career, including his connections with patrons and his adaptation of traditional subject matter to serve the Counter-Reformation. Suzanne Boorsch explores Vannis engagement with printmakers and the dissemination of his compositions through prints. The catalogue examines more than 80 paintings, drawings, and prints, including the Madonna della Pappa, one of Vannis masterpieces, acquired by the Yale University Art Gallery in2003.

Global Sources for New York Textile and Fashion Design, 19151927 Ann Marguerite Tartsinis
In 1915 the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) embarked upon a mission to energize the American textile industry. Curators sought to innovate a distinctly American design idiom drawing on a more universal primitive language. Ethnographic objects were included in study rooms; designers gained access to storage rooms; and museum artifacts were loaned to design houses and department stores. In order to attract designers and reluctant manufacturers, who quickly responded, collections were supplemented with specimens including fur garments from Siberia, Persian costumes, and Javanese textiles. This book positions the project at the AMNH in the broader narrative of early 20th-century design education in New York, which includes the roles of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the NewarkMuseum.

With an essay by Kenneth E. Silver 

Marc Chagall (18871985), one of the foremost modernists of the 20th century, created his unique style by blending richly colored folk art with Cubism, Surrealism, and imagery drawn from the Russian Christian icon tradition. This book explores a significant but neglected period in the artists career, from the rise of fascism in the 1930s through the end of World War II, which he spent in Paris and then in exile in NewYork. Chagalls paintings from this time express the horror of the Holocaust as well as hope for the survival of his people and belief in the ultimate triumph of love. Works use many of Chagalls familiar figuresthe Artist, the Bride, the Clown, the Wandering Jewset in unexpected, often wrenching scenes. These contrast with lavish flower paintings that reflect the artists adoration of his wife, Bella. Less well known are Chagalls canvases showing the Crucifixion of Jesus, often depicted as a Jew, and his rarely seen, dreamlike poems, eleven of which are published here. Susan Tumarkin Goodman and Kenneth E. Silver analyze Chagalls complex iconography and phantasmagorical style, tracing his Jewish, Christian, autobiographical, French, and Russiansources.

The Itinerant Languages of Photography

 ith contributions by Joan Fontcuberta, Valeria Gonzlez, W Thomas Keenan, Mauricio Lissovsky, and John Mraz
While photographs have been exchanged, appropriated, and mobilized in different contexts since the 19th century, their movement is now occurring at an unprecedented speed. The Itinerant Languages of Photography examines photographys capacity to circulate across time and space as well as across other media, such as art, literature, and cinema. Taking its point of departure from Latin American and Spanish photographic archives, the volume offers an alternative history of photography by focusing on the transnational dimension of technological traffic and image production at a time when photography is at the center of current debates on the role of representation, authorship, and reception in a global contemporaryculture. Featuring a wide-range of photographsimages that converse across temporal, political, and cultural boundaries by artists such as Lola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Marcelo Brodsky, Joan Colom, Marc Ferrez, and Joan Fontcubertathe book argues that the photographic image comes into being only as a consequence of reproduction, displacement, anditinerancy.

New Jersey as Non-Site

Kelly Baum
Between 1950 and 1975, some of the postwar eras most innovative artists flocked to a very unexpected place: New Jersey. Appreciating what others tended to ignore or mock, they gravitated to the states most desolate peripheries: its industrial wastescapes, crumbling cities, crowded highways, and banal suburbs. There they produced some of the most important work of their careers. The breakthroughs in land, conceptual, performance, and site-specific art that New Jersey helped catalyze are the subject of New Jersey as Non-Site, whose title evokes the mixed-media sculptures that Robert Smithson began to create in 1968 while driving the states highways with NancyHolt. This catalogue examines more than 100 works by sixteen artists, including Amiri Baraka, George Brecht, Dan Graham, Allan Kaprow, Gordon Matta-Clark, and George Segal. Organized around three themesruin, cooperation, and displacementKelly Baums essay considers their work in relationship to seismic shifts in the world of art and equally dramatic changes to New Jerseys economy, infrastructure, landscape, demography, and socialstability.

The Sheldonian Theatre

Architecture and Learning in Seventeenth-Century Oxford Anthony Geraghty

A jewel of the University of Oxford, the Sheldonian Theatre stands out among the groundbreaking designs by the great British architect Sir Christopher Wren. Published to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the buildings construction, this meticulously researched book takes a fresh look at the historical influences that shaped the Sheldonians development, including the Restoration of the English monarchy and the universitys commitment to episcopalreligion. The book explains just how novel Wrens design was in its day, in part because the academic theater was a building type without precedent in England, and in part because the Sheldonians classical style stood apart in its university context. The author also points to a shift in the guiding motivation behind the architecture at Oxford: from a tradition that largely perpetuated medieval forms to one that conceived classical architecture in relation to late Renaissance learning. Newly commissioned photographs showcase the theaters recently restoredinterior.

From Still Life to the Screen

Print Culture, Display, and the Materiality of the Image in Eighteenth-Century London Joseph Monteyne
From Still Life to the Screen explores the print culture of 18th-century London, focusing on the correspondences between images and consumer objects. In his lively and insightful text, Joseph Monteyne considers such themes as the display of objects in still lifes and markets, the connoisseurs fetishistic gaze, and the fusion of body and ornament in satires of fashion. The desire for goods emerged in tandem with modern notions of identity, in which things were seen to mirror and symbolize the self. Prints, particularly graphic satires by such artists as Matthew and Mary Darly, James Gillray, William Hogarth, Thomas Rowlandson, and Paul Sandby, were actively involved in this shift. Many of these images play with the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, self and thing. They also reveal the recurring motif of image display, whether on screens, by magic lanterns, or in raree-shows and print-shop windows. The author links this motif to new conceptions of the self, specifically through the penetration of spectacle into everydayexperience.
Joseph Monteyne is associate professor in the history of art at the University of BritishColumbia.

Painting in Latin America, 15501820

From Conquest to Independence Luisa Elena Alcala and Jonathan Brown
Painting in Latin America, 15501820: From Conquest to Independence surveys the diverse styles, subjects, and iconography of painting in Latin America between the 16th and 19th centuries. While European art forms were widely disseminated, copied, and adapted throughout Latin America, colonial painting is not a derivative extension of Europe. The ongoing debate over what to call itmestizo, hybrid, creole, indo-hispanic, tequitquitestifies to a fundamental yet unresolved question ofidentity. Comparing and contrasting the Viceroyalties of New Spain, with its center in modern-day Mexico, and Peru, the authors explore the very different ways the two regions responded to the influence of the Europeans and their art. A wide range of art and artists are considered, some for the first time. Rich with new photography and primary research, this book delivers a wealth of new insight into the history of images and the history ofart.

American Adversaries

West and Copley in a Transatlantic World Emily Ballew Neff and Kaylin H. Weber
American artists and innovators Benjamin West (17381820) and John Singleton Copley (17381815) changed the way history was recorded in the 18th century and became Americas first global art superstars. Initially friends but eventually bitter rivals, the artists painted contemporary events as they happened, illustrating the transformation of imperial power through diplomacy between British Americans and the Iroquois, and through transatlantic trade, exploration, and the natural history of the WestIndies. Focusing on two iconic works, Wests The Death of General Wolfe (1770) and Copleys Watson and the Shark (1778), American Adversaries charts the rise of contemporary history painting, and offers a compelling examination of American history and New World exploration. Featuring more than two hundred color reproductions of paintings, works on paper, and objects that informed the artists, this handsome volume also includes essays that shed new light on, among other subjects, West and Copley within the context of the Royal Academy and the use of Western and Native American objects in culturaldiplomacy.

The Kings Pictures

The Formation and Dispersal of the Collections of Charles I and His Courtiers Francis Haskell
 ith a foreword by Nicholas Penny W Edited and with an introduction by Karen Serres

The greatest paintings in todays most famous museums were once part of a fluid exchange determined by volatile political fortunes. In the first half of the 17th century, masterpieces by Titian, Raphael, and Leonardo, among others, were the objects of fervent pursuit by art connoisseurs. Francis Haskell traces the fate of collections extracted from Italy, Spain, and France by King Charles I and his circle, which, after a brief stay in Britain, were largely dispersed after the Civil War to princely galleries across the Continent. From vivid case studies of individual collectors, advisers, and artists, and acute analysis of personality and motive, Haskell challenges ideas about this episode in British cultural life and traces some of the factors that forever changed the artistic map ofEurope.
Francis Haskell (19282000) was one of the most influential art historians of the 20th century. He expanded the discipline to include the study of patronage and collecting, the formation of museums and canons of taste, the idea of revival and of illustration. He was professor of art history at the University of Oxford from 1967 until his retirement in1995.

The Making of Assisi

The Pope, the Franciscans, and the Painting of the Basilica Donal Cooper and Janet Robson
For a brief moment at the close of the 13th century, the town of Assisi was the focus for the two greatest powers in the Latin Church: the Roman papacy and the Franciscan Order. The election in 1288 of Nicholas IV, the first Franciscan pope, was the catalyst for the creation of frescoes of unprecedented intellectual ambition in the Basilica of San Francesco. At the heart of the new decorative scheme were twenty-eight scenes depicting the life of Saint Francis. Putting to one side the long debate about whether the Saint Francis cycle was or was not painted by Giotto, The Making of Assisi takes a fresh approach and treats the cycle as part of a larger, integrated, and far-reaching program of renewal at theBasilica. In this deeply researched, illuminating, and beautifully illustrated book, Donal Cooper and Janet Robson investigate the particular historical moment in which the frescoes were made, casting new light on their patronage andiconography.

Medieval Treasures from Hildesheim

Edited by Peter Barnet and Michael Brandt
Hildesheim, Germany, was a leading center of art between 1000 and 1250, when outstanding precious works, such as the larger-than-life size Ringelheim Crucifix, illuminated manuscripts lavishly bound in jeweled covers, and a monumental bronze baptismal font, were commissioned for its churches and cathedral. In 1985, UNESCO designated St. Marys Cathedral and St. Michaels Church in Hildesheim a world cultural heritage site, recognizing them as monuments of medieval art with exceptionally richtreasures. Despite its significance, Hildesheims incomparable collection of medieval church furnishings is little known outside of Germany. This book provides the first comprehensive examination in English of the citys t reasures, its leading role in the art of the Middle Ages, and its churches history of commissioning and collecting outstanding objects. Highlighting fifty precious and rare works, this book beautifully illustrates some of the great masterpieces of medieval churchart.

Artists and Amateurs

 ith essays by Charlotte Guichard, Rena M. Housington, W Elizabeth Rudy, and Perrin Stein
Over the course of the 18th century a great number of artists, ranging from established painters and sculptors to amateurs, experimented with etching, an accessible form of printmaking akin to drawing. In a period when artists strained to navigate the highly regulated Acadmie Royale and the increasingly discordant public spheres of the marketplace and the Salon, etching afforded them stylistic freedom and allowed them to produce exquisite works of art in a spirit of collaboration and experimentation. Featuring works by Watteau, Boucher, Fragonard, Hubert Robert, and many others, Artists and Amateurs embarks on a fresh exploration of how etching flourished in ancien rgime France, shedding new light on artistic practice and patronage at that time. Treating such topics as technique and practice, experimentation, and the crucial role of the amateur, it establishes the unique place of etching in the shifting social terrain of 18th-century Paris, and explores an artistic context in which conventional hierarchies of genre and medium were breached to brillianteffect.

Iran Modern

Edited by Fereshteh Daftari and Layla S. Diba

Supported by a thriving art market in the Persian Gulf, interest in Iranian modern art has intensified in recent years. Iran Modern offers a timely exploration of the cultural diversity and production of avant-garde art in Iran after World War II and up to the revolutionfrom 1950 through1979. Generously illustrated, this volume provides a new understanding of global interconnectedness not yet addressed in art historical accounts. Ten essays by distinguished scholars of art and history elucidate the early development of Iranian artists, patrons, galleries, art schools, architects, and writers who influenced and participated in the dynamic decades of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. The essays describe a time when Iran experienced an outpouring of original and creative modern art and when the country was very much a part of the international artworld.

Violence and Virtue

Artemisia Gentileschis Judith SlayingHolofernes Eve Straussman-Pflanzer

Violence and Virtue examines a single, uniquely powerful painting: Judith Slaying Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi. A quintessential example of early Baroque painting, this work has, more than any other picture in her oeuvre, come to define Gentileschi as an early modern woman and a superb Baroquepainter. Eve Straussman-Pflanzer explores the circumstances surrounding the paintings creation and the meanings conveyed by the image itself. Among other topics of investigation, the author addresses the role of women artists and patrons in the 17th century and the fascination with violence and the importance of female heroes during the Baroque era. A comparative analysis between Gentileschis masterpiece and other paintings and works on paper by artists such as Caravaggio, Botticelli, Cristofano Allori, and Felice Ficherelli, among others, testifies to the importance of Gentileschis portrayal of the heroineJudith.

The Object in Islamic Art and Culture Edited by Sheila Blair and Jonathan Bloom
The Islamic world, spanning centuries and far-flung regions, is renowned for its diverse cultural and artistic traditions. This sumptuous book delves into that vast creative output, examining a dozen exquisite objects in the Museum of Islamic Art, in Doha, Qatar, designed by the ChineseAmerican architect I. M. Pei and opened in 2008. Twelve prominent scholars from across the globe select works representing various centers of Islamic life, from early Spain to 17th-century India, as well as a range of media including textiles, ceramics, metalwork, and miniature paintings. Authoritative texts put the objects into context, exploring the relationships to those people who produced and lived amongthem. In addition, architectural critic Paul Goldberger discusses the museum, assessing its place in Peis career and in the broader scope of Islamic architecture, while Oliver Watson, the museums former director, sheds light on the installation of works throughout thebuilding.

The City and the King

Architecture and Politics in Restoration London Christine Stevenson

The City of London is a jurisdiction whose relationship with the English monarchy has sometimes been turbulent. This fascinating book explores how architecture was used to renew and redefine a relationship essential to both parties in the wake of two momentous events: the restoration of the monarchy, in 1660, and the Great Fire six yearslater. Spotlighting little-known projects alongside such landmarks as Christopher Wrens St. Pauls Cathedral, it exploreshow they were made to bear meaning. It drawson a range of evidencewide enough to match architectures resonances for its protagonists: paintings, prints, and poetry, sermons and civic ceremony mediated and politicized buildings and built space, as did direct and sometimes violent action. The City and the Kingoffersa nuanced understanding of architectures place in early modern English culture.It casts new light not only on the reign of Charles II, but on the universal mechanisms of construction, decoration, and destruction through which we give our monumentssignificance.

Art History in the Wake of the Global Turn

Edited by Jill H. Casid and Aruna DSouza
With globalization steadily reshaping the cultural landscape, scholars have long called for a full-scale reassessment of art historys largely Eurocentric framework. This collection of case studies and essays, the latest in the Clark Studies in the Visual Arts series, brings together voices from various disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds, each proposing ways to remap, decenter, and reorient what is often assumed to be a unified field. Rather than devise a one-size-fits-all strategy for what has long been a divided and disjointed terrain, these authors and artists reframe the inherent challenges of the globalmost notably geographic, political, aesthetic, and linguistic differencesas productive starting points for study. As the book demonstrates, approaching art history from such alternative perspectives rewrites some of the most basic narratives, from the origins of representation to the beginnings of the modern to the very history of globalization and itseffects.

The Devils Invention

European Crossbows, 12501850 Dirk Breiding

The advent of the crossbow more than 2,500 years ago effected dramatic changes for hunters and warriors. For centuries, it was among the most powerful and widely used handheld weapons, and its popularity endures to this day. The Devils Invention presents a lively, accessible survey of the crossbows golden age, along with detailed descriptions of twenty-four remarkableexamples. Beginning in the middle ages, the European aristocracys enthusiasm for the crossbow heralded shooting competitions and pageants that featured elaborately decorated weapons bearing elegant embellishments of rare materials and prized artistry. In addition to being highly functional, these weapons were magnificent works of art. The Devils Invention includes fascinating descriptions of crossbows used by Margaret of Savoy and Holy Roman Emperors Maximilian I and Charles V, amongothers.

The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence

Megan Holmes
In Renaissance Florence, certain paintings and sculptures of the Virgin Mary and Christ were believed to have extraordinary efficacy in activating potent sacred intercession. Cults sprung up around these miraculous images in the city and surrounding countryside beginning in the late 13th century. In The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence, Megan Holmes questions what distinguished these paintings and sculptures from other similar sacred images, looking closely at their material and formal properties, the process of enshrinement, and the foundation legends and miracles associated with specific images. Whereas some of the images presented in this fascinating book are well known, such as Bernardo Daddis Madonna of Orsanmichele, many others have been little studied until now. Holmess efforts center on the recovery and contextualization of these revered images, reintegrating them and their related cults into an art-historical account of the period. By challenging prevailing views and offering a reassessment of the Renaissance, this generously illustrated and comprehensive survey makes a significant contribution to thefield.

Delacroix and the Matter of Finish

Edited by Eik Kahng, Marc Gotleib, and Michle Hannoosh

This groundbreaking publication centers on a previously unknown variation of Eugne Delacroixs (17981863) dramatic masterpiece The Last Words of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, published here for the first time. This book offers a compelling reassessment of the relationship of the artist, widely consider a primary exemplar of Romanticism, to Neoclassical themes, as demonstrated by his life-long fascination with the death of Marcus Aurelius. Through this investigation, the authors reinterpret Delacroixs lineage to such fellow artists as Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres (17801867) and Jacques-Louis David (17481825). Playing on the various interpretations of the word finish, the book also offers a fascinating account of Delacroixs famously troubled collaboration with his studio assistants, his conflicted feelings about pedagogy, and his preoccupation with the fate ofcivilizations.

Antonio Berni

Juanito and Ramona Mari Carmen Ramrez and Marcelo E. Pacheco

Argentinian figurative artist Antonio Berni (19051981) is known for his aesthetic originality and for art steeped in social commentary. In the 1950s, he inaugurated a series of works that documented the lives of two fictional characters, Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel. Through the stories of Juanito, a denizen of Argentinas shantytowns, and Ramona, who rises from the working class to the upper echelons of society, Berni addressed topics from industrialization to neocolonialism to economic backwardness and their effects on the population of underdevelopedcountries. Written by leading scholars of Latin American art, this handsome volume presents the first comprehensive survey of the internationally acclaimed Juanito and Ramona series. Richly illustrated with more than 250 color images, the volume brings together nearly two decades of Bernis monumental, mixed-media reliefs and assemblages, experimental works on paper, and sculptural constructions made of found, everydayobjects.

Rituals of Rented Island

Object Theater, Loft Performance, and the New PsychodramaManhattan, 19701982 Jay Sanders with J. Hoberman
This important volume explores three unique performance art practices of the 1970s and early 1980s: object theater (in which artists engage directly with the objects drawn from the world around them); loft performance (where artists performed in lofts, storefronts, and the alternative spaces of New Yorks SoHo); and new psychodrama (in which artists drew on formal performance modes to explore everyday experience). By tracing the paths of such artists as Stuart Sherman, Julia Heyward, Jared Bark and Jill Kroesen, this catalogue makes newly visible a critical period in the development of performanceart. Rituals of Rented Island examines the disparate yet related practices of the artists mentioned above alongside those of the notorious Kipper Kids; composer-musician John Zorn; and legendary playwright and filmmaker Jack Smith; among others. With an array of previously unpublished images, including installation photographs, posters, and other ephemera, drawn from the artists own archives, this volume illuminates the eccentric singularities of the performance art of this era and its relevancetoday.

Thomas Sully

Painted Performance William Keyse Rudolph and Carol Eaton Soltis

Thomas Sully (17831872) painted some of the most dynamic personalities of the 19th century, including Queen Victoria, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Although he created more than two thousand portraits and subject paintings, his full production has never before been examined in depth. The child of actors, Sullys lifelong connection to the theater informed his imagination. His portraits of 19th-century actors, celebrities, royalty, and politicians established his reputation, and would mark all his works, particularly his fancy pictures, portraits evoking scenes from literature, fairy tales, Shakespeare, or of his own devising. This essential introduction demonstrates how the artist interpreted the nature of painting as performance, manifested in his dazzling productions. Three essays, 160 color reproductions, and an illustrated chronology survey and elucidate hiscareer.

Recent Work by Mariko Mori Edited and with a foreword by Miwako Tezuka
Contemporary artist Mariko Mori (b. 1967) has transformed herself many times since her memorable debut onto the international art scene in the mid-1990s. Over the past two decades, Mori has made a significant shift in the focus of her work, moving away from self-obsessive motifs and performance pieces to a diametrically opposite approach of self-effacement. Her own image has disappeared from her Pop-oriented work, and her interest now inclines toward the prehistoric world in which everything existed in an amorphous state without text, religion, nation, or division between humankind andnature.

Accompanying a major solo exhibition at Japan Society Gallery in New York, this fascinating book features over 35 immersive installations, sculptures, drawings (including many unpublished works), and videos produced by the artist between 2003 and 2012. It presents not only Moris artistic evolution during the last decade, but also defines her current work relating to rebirth in an age of endangered environment and a lost connection between man andnature.

Visions of Nation from Le Gray to Monet Simon Kelly and AprilM.Watson

With essays by Neil McWilliam and Maura Coughlin 

Impressionist France

A novel look at the relationship between Impressionist painting and photography and the forging of a national identityin France between 1850 and 1880
Between 1850 and 1880, Impressionist landscape painting and early forms of photography flourished within the arts in France. In the context of massive social and political change that also marked this era, painters and photographers composed competing visions of France as modern and industrialized or as rural and antimodern. Impressionist France explores the resonances between landscape art and national identity as reflected in the paintings and photographs made during this period, examining and illustrating in particular the works of key artists such as douard Baldus, Gustave Le Gray, the Bisson Frres, douard Manet, Jean-Franois Millet, Claude Monet, Charles Ngre, and Camille Pissarro. This ambitious premise focuses on the whole of France, exploring the relationship between landscape art and the notion of French nationhood across the countrys varied and spectacular landscapes in seven geographical sections and four scholarly essays, which provide new information regarding the production and impact of FrenchImpressionism.

The Berlin Avant-Garde and the First World War Michael White

But the circumstances that brought together the likes of George Grosz, John Heartfield, Raoul Hausmann, and Johannes Baaderrenamed Propaganda Marshall, Monteurdada, Dadasoph, and Oberdada within the organizationhave remained largely unexamined until now. Drawing on extensive archival research, this book documents the groups beginnings in wartime Berlin and reveals how these relationships influenced its provocative acts, which were inextricably tied to the eras chaos andbrutality. Studying how the Dadaists saw themselves as a new generationin contrast to their pacifist forebears, the Expressioniststhe book sheds light on key developments and events, such as the First International Dada Fair, held in Berlin in 1920. It also offers the first serious consideration of the groups role in constructing its own legacy, even as the works were deliberately rooted in theephemeral.

Poussins Sacrament of Ordination

History, Faith, and the Sacred Landscape Jonathan W. Unglaub

Painted by Nicolas Poussin (15941665), The Sacrament of Ordination is a major milestone of Franco-Italian classicism of the 17th century. The magisterial painting depicts Christs charge to Saint Peter and offers a profound meditation on nature, faith, and the epochal unfolding of sacred history. This lovely book celebrates the work, recently acquired by the Kimbell ArtMuseum. Jonathan W. Unglaub, esteemed authority on the topic, shows how Poussin ingeniously employed the landscape setting and seemingly incidental figures to imbue the apparently conventional but deceptively meaningful painting with a broad sweep of sacred history. The author also considers the painting in the context of Poussins two series of the Seven Sacraments and makes the case that the artist redefined the ambitions of narrative painting and landscape, sowing the seeds of pictorialclassicism.

A Conspiracy of Images
John J. Curley

Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and the Art of the Cold War

An important new look at Cold War art on both sides of the Atlantic
In October 1962, a set of blurred surveillance photographs brought the world to the brink of nuclear apocalypse during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The pictures themselves demonstrated little, and explanatory captions were necessary to identify the danger for the public. In the following months, two artists with antithetical backgrounds arrived at a similar aesthetic: Andy Warhol, who began his career as a commercial artist in New York City, turned to the silkscreened replication of violent photographs. Gerhard Richter, who began as a mural painter in socialist Dresden, East Germany, painted blurred versions of personal and media photographs. In A Conspiracy of Images, author John J. Curley explores how the artists developing aesthetic approaches were informed by the political agency and ambiguity of images produced during the Cold War, particularly those disseminated by the mass media on both sides. As the first scholarly consideration of the visual conditions of the Cold War, A Conspiracy of Images provides a new and compelling transatlantic model for Cold War arthistory.

John Baldessari Catalogue Raisonn

Edited by Patrick Pardo and Robert Dean
The second in a projected four-volume series of the complete catalogue of works by John Baldessari

Compiling four-hundred-plus unique works of art, this volume traces the shifts and developments in conceptual artist John Baldessaris work from 197586. It covers his photo-based works such as the Strobe, Word Chain, and Pathetic Fallacy series from 1975; the Violent Space and the seminal Concerning Diachronic/ Synchronic Time: Above, On, Under (With Mermaid), from 1976; and the Blasted Allegories series from 197778, which drew heavily from the artists vast collection of photo stills taken from commercialtelevision. In the 1980s, Baldessaris art took a different direction, beginning with the expansive Fugitive Essays triptychs from 1980 and leading to 1982s photographic interpretations of Grimms Fairy Tales. Building on these themes, Baldessari began producing a body of work that was inspired in part by dreams, psychology, film, and popular culture. Ensuing works were more formal, elaborate, and large-scale. From 1984 to 1986 Baldessari created a number of works that employed his soon-to-be-signature colored discs painted over peoples faces in thephotos. An introductory critical essay will provide a close reading of selected works and a historical context for understanding Baldessaris art from this period. A detailed chronology and exhibition history and bibliography are alsoincluded.

Art and Music in Venice

From the Renaissance to Baroque Edited by Hilliard T. Goldfarb

Artistic and musical creativity thrived in the Venetian Republic between the early 16th century and the close of the 18th century. The city-state was known for its superb operas and splendid balls, and the acoustics of the architecture led to complex polyphony in musical composition. Accordingly, notable composers, including Antonio Vivaldi and Adrian Willaert, developed styles that were distinct from those of other Italian cultures. The Venetian music scene, in turn, influenced visual artists, inspiring paintings by artists such as Jacopo Bassano, Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Pietro Longhi, Bernardo Strozzi, Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo, Tintoretto, and Titian. Together, art and music served larger aims, whether social, ceremonial, or even political. Lavishly illustrated, Art and Music in Venice brings Venices golden age to life through stunning images of paintings, drawings, prints, manuscripts, textbooks, illuminated choir books, musical scores and instruments, and period costumes. New scholarship into these objects by a team of distinguished experts gives a fresh perspective on the cultural life and creative output of theera.
Hilliard T. Goldfarb is associate chief curator and curator of Old Masters at the Montreal Museum of FineArts.

Juliet Wilson-Bareau

Goya in the Norton Simon Museum

Edited by Leah Lehmbeck

During his lifetime, the industrialist and collector Norton Simon (1907 1993) amassed a trove of European paintings, drawings, and prints by Rembrandt, Picasso, Degas, and others. Simon occasionally became fascinated with a particular artists oeuvre, and that passion inspired him to assemble monographic holdings of work by several masters, chief among them Francisco de Goya (17461828). This book examines the extraordinary Goya collection, which includes more than 1,400 prints, a drawing, and three paintings, in the founders namesake museum. Simons enduring interest in serial images led him to acquire prints from various series and editions, and to compare and contrast seemingly identical ones. Spotlighting rare proofs and single prints, the catalogue also presents a complete set each of Los Caprichos, Disasters of War, and other seminalseries.
Juliet Wilson-Bareau is a preeminent scholar of Goyas work. Leah Lehmbeck is curator at the Norton Simon Museum, where she oversees the 19thand 20th-centurycollections.

Object Sculpture, 19601965

The first book to address the full body of Robert Morriss objectsculptures
Over the past half-century, American artist and critic Robert Morris (b. 1931) has been a key figure in the history of minimal, post-minimal, and conceptual art. Between 1960 and 1965, part of his artistic output consisted of approximately 100 object sculptures, or as Morris called them at the time, process type objects. These consist of plaques, containers, and assisted or simulated readymades of wood, Sculpmetal, and lead. This book is the first study to address the object sculptures as a full and complex yet coherent body of work. Jeffrey Weiss, an authority on modernist and postwar sculpture, in close collaboration with Morris, systematically catalogues the object sculptures, and subjects them to critical and historical interpretation in the context of Morriss early practice overall. Featuring new photography of many of the works and an interview with the artist, this book offers an important and original perspective on a crucial early period in the career of one of Americas most importantartists.

Painting under Pressure

Reputation and Demand in Renaissance Florence Michelle OMalley

In late 15th-century Italy, there was a growing demand for goods of all types, including art. Painting under Pressure shows how the increased desire for art objects exerted significant pressure on highly sought-after painters. Michelle OMalley analyzes the lives and works of four artists: Alessandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi, and Pietro Perugino. She considers network systems, production practices, economic concepts, and workshop input to demonstrate the consequences of high demand on some of the most respected artists of thetime. In this fascinating and incisive book, OMalley asks how painters approached the manufacture of large bodies of commissioned work, how they made day-to-day decisions about design and the application of pigments, and how serial production related to creating work for commissions, in addition to questions of economics. Using documentary evidence about price, scientific evidence about production, and formal analysis about appearance, the book demonstrates Renaissance business practices and shows the individual approaches artists took to producing excellence and meeting highdemand.

Volume 34, Titians Painting Technique before 1540 Edited by Ashok Roy

National Gallery Technical Bulletin

Jill Dunkerton and Marika Spring  With contributions from Rachel Billinge, Kamilla Kalinina, Rachel Morrison, David Peggie and Ashok Roy
Titian (active 1506; died 1576) is acclaimed as the greatest of the Venetian masters. His technique has long fascinated painters and collectors, and his use of oil paints and the richly colored pigments available to him in Venice influenced the subsequent history of European painting. The National Gallery, London, is home to an outstanding group of Titians paintings, and this special edition of its annual Technical Bulletin is dedicated to the study of the artist during the first part of his career. An introductory essay focuses on Titians painting technique, from its origins in the workshops of Venice and the Veneto, through close examination of nine works in the gallerys collection, including the stunning Bacchus and Ariadne (152023). The authors also discuss significant early works from other collections, such as The Triumph of Love (about 15446). New research and discoveries, published here for the first time, will be essential reading for Titian scholars and enthusiastsalike.
Ashok Roy is director of collections, Jill Dunkerton is senior restorer, and Marika Spring is principal scientific officer, all at the National Gallery, London.

Andr Le Ntre in Perspective

Edited by Patricia Bouchenot-Dchin and Georges Farhat
A beautifully illustrated investigation of the life, work, and legacy of the great 17th-century landscape and garden designer
Andr Le Ntre (16131700), principal gardener to Louis XIV, was Frances greatest landscape and garden designer. The parks created by him at Vaux-le-Vicomte and Versailles are the supreme examples of the French 17th-century style of garden design. He was responsible also for the central pathway through the Tuileries, which became the grand axis of Paris running to the Arc de Triomphe and on to LaDfense. This magnificent book sheds new light on the royal gardeners life and his practice as a landscape architect, engineer and art collector, and examines the legacy of his influence. It highlights his major achievements and enhances our understanding of the French formal-garden model. Le Ntres output is re-examined in terms of its social and cultural contexts; its artistic, technological, material and spatial components; and the dissemination of his ideas. The book contains illustrations of both original documents and the majority of extant drawings by Le Ntre and his collaborators. Comprehensive and impeccably researched, Andr Le Ntre in Perspective brings together the scholarship of some of the worlds leading experts in early-modern art, gardens and alliedfields.

Kent: North East and East

John Newman  evsner P A rchitectural Guides

The exceptionally rich architecture of eastern Kent is covered by this fully revised, updated, and expanded edition of John Newmans classic survey, first published in 1969. The city of Canterbury is the countys greatest treasure, and its glorious cathedral is the first mature example of Gothic architecture in England. The influence of Canterbury appears also in the remains of St Augustines 7th-century mission churches, and in sophisticated Norman carved work at churches such as Barfrestone. Kent is also a maritime county, and its coastal towns are excitingly diverse: the royal stronghold of Dover with its mighty medieval castle; the medieval port of Sandwich; and resorts large and small, from genteel Folkestone to lively Margate, with its bold new artgallery.
John Newman is the author of several other volumes for the Pevsner Architectural Guides, including Kent: West and the Weald (2012), Shropshire (2006), and Glamorgan and Gwent/Monmouthshire in the Buildings of Walesseries.

Bruce Bailey and Nikolaus Pevsner

 evsner P A rchitectural Guides

Some of Englands grandest country houses are to be found in this prosperous rural county. The Elizabethan Renaissance Kirby Hall, the Jacobean mansion at Apethorpe, the late 17th-century Frenchinspired Boughton, Hawksmoors stately Baroque Easton Neston, and the interiors of Althorp provide a fascinating survey of changing taste through the centuries. Complementing them are smaller buildings of great character, supreme among them those of Sir Thomas Tresham: the eccentric and ingenious Triangular Lodge at Rushton and the evocative New Beild at Lyveden. Of no less interest are the fine churches, from Anglo-Saxon Brixworth to the noble Gothic of Warmington, Rushden and Finedon and from All Saints, Northampton, one of the grandest 17th-century churches outside London, to Compers St. Marys, Wellingborough. Chief among the towns, Northampton has not only distinguished Victorian and Edwardian public, commercial and industrial buildings but also the principal work in England by Charles RennieMackintosh.
Bruce Bailey is a Northamptonshire man and has contributed to both of the previous editions of the guide to the county in this series. He serves as archivist at Drayton House and for the AlthorpEstate.

Robert Scourfield and Richard Haslam  evsner P A rchitectural Guides

The historic counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, and Breconshire are described in this final volume of the Buildings of Wales series, expanded and revised from the first edition of 1979. Prehistoric hill-forts and standing stones, Roman encampments, Early Christian monuments, ruined castles and the enigmatic remains of early industry enhance the landscapes of this wild and beautiful region. Atmospheric medieval churches survive in quantity, together with diverse Nonconformist chapels. Vernacular traditions are represented by robust medieval cruck-framed houses, and by the manor houses and farmhouses of the Tudors and Stuarts. Other highlights include Montgomery, with its beguiling Georgian heritage, the Victorian spa at Llandrindod Wells, and Powis Castle, with its Baroque interiors and terracedgardens.
Robert Scourfield is Buildings Conservation Officer for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, and co-author of Pembrokeshire (2004) and Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion (2006) in the Buildings of Wales series.

Volume 49: Public, Commercial, and Cultural Edited by Andrew Saint Volume 50: Houses and Housing Edited by Colin Thom
The south London parish of Battersea has roots as a working village, growing produce for London markets, and as a high-class suburb, with merchants villas on the elevated ground around Clapham and Wandsworth Commons. Battersea enjoyed spectacular growth during Queen Victorias reign, and railroads brought industry and a robust building boom, transforming the parish into another of Londons dense, smoky neighborhoods, though not without its unique and distinguishing features. Among these are Battersea Park, which was created by the Crown in the 1850s; the monumental Battersea Power Station, completed in 1939; and Clapham Junction railway station, which is, by measure of passenger interchanges, the busiest station in the UnitedKingdom. The two latest volumes of the Survey of London, 49 and 50, trace Batterseas development from medieval times to the present day. Offering detailed analysis of its streets and buildings both thematically and topographically, and including copious original in-depth research and investigation, the books are a trove of architectural and British history. Profusely illustrated with new and archival images, architectural drawings and maps, these volumes are welcome additions to the acclaimed Survey of Londonseries.
ANDREW SAINT is the general editor of The Survey of London and the author of Richard Norman Shaw. Colin Thom is senior historian, Survey of London, EnglishHeritage.
