|9781855326927 Italian Invasion of Abyssinia 1935-36 Osprey |
The Italian invasion of Abyssinia on 3rd October 1935 marked the first of the fascist military adventures. The campaign is described in detail in this text, along with the equipment used and the colourful uniforms worn by both armies. The invasion marked the most ambitious phase yet in Mussolini's attempt to recreate an Italian Empire and was partly prompted by the desire for revenge for the humiliating defeat inflicted on Italian troops at Adowa in 1896. International opinion was outraged by the invasion and the use of poison gas against an army with almost medieval weaponary. It took just seven months to drive out Emperor Haile Selassie. The whole episode discredited the League of Nations as an effective curb on the military ambitions of the Fascist states and was an important lesson to Nazi Germany.

|9780521811026 Edited by An Biomarkers of Disease Cambridge Academ |
This publication takes a critical, evidence-based look at the efficacy of diagnostic tests which are increasingly being used to evaluate organ damage and dysfunction. The use of biomarkers is growing, with a steady stream of products being brought out by the pharmaceutical industry. Some of these assist in diagnosis, others provide a means of monitoring the state of progression of disease and the effectiveness of therapeutic options. However, in many cases the evidence which supports the use of these methods as opposed to traditional biochemical tests has not yet been demonstrated, and it is intended that this volume will help clarify the strengths and weaknesses of using these biomarkers across a wide range of applications and in the various organs of the body. This approach will provide pathologists, clinical biochemists and medical laboratory scientists with an invaluable overview of the diverse applications of biomarkers in medicine.

Japan's expertise in technology, design and engineering is responsible for some of the most advanced and desirable consumer products. Names such as Sony, Sharp, Honda, Yamaha and Canon have acquired legendary status in our contemporary culture. This volume examines and celebrates the manufactured precision and technical virtuosity of mass-produced Japanese products that we use and see in everyday life but whose complexity of invention we may only partly understand and appreciate. After briefly outlining the story of how Japan came to dominate the world of high-quality mass-manufacturing, the book shows how Japanese manufacturers constantly strive to invent new forms and to perfect existing technologies. Andrew Davey also identifies the qualities found in traditional Japanese aesthetics - minimalism, elegance, simplicity, symmetry, workmanship and clearly expressed function - and demonstrates how these values inform the modern products.

|9780007102167 Penny Junor Firm, The HarperCollins UK |
It would be hard to invent a group of personalities more extraordinary than the British Royal Family - known as 'The Firm' by Prince Philip. With an eye on the past, present and future, this book takes an up-to-date look at how the family really operates and reveals how they behave behind closed doors. With showbiz stars and sporting celebrities now attracting the adulation once afforded to royalty, "The Firm" questions what monarchy is for. Is it a hangover from the past, an expensive anachronism, a relic of a bygone age of deference and hierarchy, or is it an important and relevant part of Britain in the 21st century - something that gives stability and continuity to the country, and richness and glamour to our national life in ways that a republic never could? If so, do the media mock, hound and criticize the Royal Family at their peril? Has Prince Charles sacrificed the throne for love? Could Prince William decide that the long lenses and the scrutiny of his private life is too high a price to pay? Penny will also look at how the dynamics of the royal household have changed over the last year and what repercussions these changes will have. Whilst in the hardback edition Penny Junor was able to discuss the implications of Charles and Camilla's marriage only two months after it was announced, the paperback promises to offer a host of new surprises and implication for the future of the House of Windsor, as well as an inside view of how The Firm have taken in their newest member. Whatever happens over the next year, we can be sure that Penny will update this paperback edition to make it an essential buy for anyone who has even a passing interest in Britain's most dysfunctional and fascinating family.

|9780415975032 Edited by Su Chick Lit: Popularizing Fiction for Women Taylor&Francis |
"Chick Lit" is the first book-length scholarly exploration of what has become a major pop culture movement, from "Bridget Jones's Diary" to "Four Blondes". This edited collection of original and intriguing essays examines the chick lit phenomenon from a variety of angles, including race, sexuality, class and gender to account for its popularity and the intense reactions - both positive and negative - it has provoked. Despi the extensive popular discussion of 'chick lit,' there remains relatively little scholarly material that explores the phenomenon. Filling a gap in the field, this book is essential reading for those studying or interested in literature, women's studies, cultural studies, and film and media studies. Given the popularity of chick lit in both the US and the UK, it will also appeal to a broad international readership.

|9780521811101 Mark De Rond Strategic Alliances as Social Facts Cambridge Academ |
How can we explain a proliferation of alliances when the probability of failure is higher than success? And why have we emphasized their order, manageability and predictability whilst acknowledging that they tend to be experienced as messy, politically charged and unpredictable? Mark de Rond, in this provocative book, sets out to address such paradoxes. Based on in-depth case studies of three major biotechnology alliances, he suggests that we need theories to explain idiosyncracy as well as social order. He argues that such theories must allow for social conduct to be active and self-directed but simultaneously inert and constrained, thus permitting voluntarism, determinism, and serendipity alike to explain causation in alliance life. The book offers a highly original combination of insights from social theory and intellectual history with more mainstream strategic management and organizations literature. It is a refreshing and thought-provoking analysis that will appeal to practitioner and academic researcher alike.

The optic nerve and the brain comprise the main anatomic components of neuro-ophthalmology. Although there are numerous handbooks and major texts describing all the common disorders of neuro-ophthalmology, Optic Nerve Disorders is the only practical reference book focusing only on common optic nerve disorders.

Optic Nerve Disorders is organized by optic nerve diagnoses commonly encountered in a neuro-ophthalmologic practice.

Updated genetic testing for hereditary optic neuropathies will also be covered. Diagnosis of neuro-ophthalmologic disorders with newer neuroimaging techniques, such as PET, SPECT, and diffusion-weighted imaging, will be explained. New data from clinical studies, such as beta-interferons for optic neuritis, will be presented for the management of each disorder.Optic Nerve Disorders also provides an update on the latest clinical techniques in diagnosing specific optic nerve disorders and gives the most recent theories on pathophysiology.

|9783540459002 Zhu Ling Compulsory Insurance and Compensation for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage Springer |
Oil tankers are not the only vessels that have caused oil pollution at sea. Numerous spills in the past have been of heavy fuel oil from non-tankers. However, the international liability and compensation regime covered only oil pollution damage caused by oil tankers. There was thus a need to bring the law on marine oil pollution responsive to oil pollution damage caused by non-tankers. In March 2001, the International Convention on Civil Liability for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage was adopted following a diplomatic conference at the International Maritime Organization. Though this convention has not yet come into force, its various aspects should already be considered as they will surely affect the maritime industry as a whole and the non-tanker sector, in particular. This book provides a timely and comprehensive study on the concept of compulsory insurance, its main purpose of ensuring compensation and its interrelations with other features such as the rule of strict liability and the limitation of liability under the convention.

The sheer beauty of the work of sixteenth-century artist Parmigianino (1503-40) makes it easy to imagine that he discovered his style without any effort. But
nothing so elegant as his drawings and paintings could have been achieved effortlessly. A close study of the artist's work, particularly his drawings, reveals the sources of his style and
the creative struggles he endured.
This lavishly illustrated book offers a comprehensive reassessment of Parmigianino's work as a draftsman, discussing in detail more than
eighty of the artist's works on paper selected from collections around the world. Among Renaissance artists, Parmigianino was perhaps more conscious than any of the potential of the
graphic arts to convey, and indeed broadcast, complex ideas. He explored this potential by means of his numerous drawings and through the etchings he produced on his own as well
as through the engravings and chiaroscuro that were made after his designs.
In these media, the artist's influence travelled farther and wider than it could have through his
paintings alone. This book coincides with the quincentenary of the artist's birth in Parma and accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, from October 3,
2003 to January 4, 2004, and at the Frick Collection, New York, from January 27 to April 18, 2004.
|9780300094367 Karmel Picasso & the Invention of Cubism Yale University Press |
This work seeks to transform our understanding of Cubism, showing in detail how it emerged in Picasso's work of the years 1906-13, and tracing its roots in
19th-century philosophy and linguistics. Linking well-known paintings and sculptures to the hitherto-ignored drawings that accompanied them, Pepe Karmel demonstrates how Picasso's
quest to depict the human body with greater solidity led, paradoxically, to its fragmentation; and how Picasso used the archaic model of stage space to free himself from conventional
perspective, replacing the open window of Renaissance painting with a new projective space. Rejecting the usual distinction between "analytic" and "synthetic" Cubism, Karmel shows
how Picasso's changing artistic goals were realized in the crystalline Cubism of 1907-09, the gridded Cubism of 1910-11, and the planar Cubism of 1912-13.
In other chapters,
Karmel discusses the empiricist philosophy championed by Hippolyte Taine, which encouraged the breakdown of painting into its abstract elements, and laid the groundwork for an art
of mental association rather than naturalistic figuration. Similarly, contemporary philology provided the model for a visual language employing both metaphoric and metonymic (but not
|9780300115239 Agee Coming of Age: American Art 1850s to 1950s Yale University Press |
Presents the story of America`s interwoven history and geography from 1915 to 2000. Discussing such developments as the automotive, neotechnic, and communications revolutions, the world wars, urban migration, and regionalism, this book offers insights into the reshaping of the United States. From the 1850s to the 1950s, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence. This book chronicles this complex century of maturation through a selection of paintings from the extraordinary collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts. American painter Alex Katz has painted a series of portraits of his wife, Ada. This illustrated book focuses on these paintings and explores the allure of Ada as a subject and the art-historical importance of Katz`s portraits, asking questions about Katz`s methods and intentions.

Medicine in Salerno where she was trained. Instead, King Henry II has decided to keep her in England. This is bad news for Adelia - in free-thinking Salerno, women doctors are
accepted but in twelfth-century England they're unheard of and regarded as witches.
Under suspicion, and with her illegitimate child, Adelia is forced to live and practise in the
secrecy of Cambridgeshire's fenland. But at Henry's court, terrible things are happening. Out of jealousy, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine is not only stirring up revolt against her husband,
rumour has it that she has also poisoned Fair Rosamund Clifford - the King's favourite mistress.If Henry believes the stories, England will be torn apart as King battles Queen.
a race against time to prove that Eleanor is at least innocent of Rosamund's murder, Adelia is recruited by Rowley, her former lover and father of her child, to help avoid a civil war. It
isn't easy. An assassin is on the loose and so is Queen Eleanor with a small army.
Adelia encounters both as, in the middle of a terrible medieval winter, she tries to pierce the
physical and metaphorical maze that surrounds Rosamund's tower and the mystery of the dead woman who lies frozen inside it.

|9780521687317 Mikkel Vedby The Risk Society at War Cambridge Academ |
In the globalised world of the twenty-first century, security policy in Western societies is driven by a wish to prevent future threats from becoming reality. Applying theories of 'risk society' to the study of strategy, this book analyses the creation of a new approach to strategy. The author demonstrates that this approach creates new choices for policy-makers and challenges well-established truths within the study of security and strategy. He argues that since the seventeenth century the concept of strategy has served to rationalise new technologies, doctrines and agents. By outlining the history of the concept of strategy in terms of rationality, Rasmussen presents a framework for studying strategy in a time of risk and uses this framework to analyse how new technologies of war, pre-emptive doctrines, globalisation and the rise of the 'terrorist approach to warfare' can formulate a new theory of strategy.

|9780521030007 Bin Cheng General Principles of Law as Applied by International Courts and Tribunals Cambridge Academ |
The municipal codes of well over a dozen countries expressly provide for the application of the general principles of law in the absence of specific legal provisions or of custom, and the Statute of the International Court of Justice stipulates that 'the general principles of law recognised by civilised nations' constitute one of the sources of international law to be applied by the Court; but the exact meaning and scope of this section of the Statute have always been a subject of controversy amongst international lawyers. In this printing of his classic 1953 work, Professor Bin Cheng inquires into the practical application of these principles by international courts and tribunals since the beginning of modern international arbitration with the Jay Treaty of 1794, and presents them as a coherent body of fundamental principles that in fact furnish the international legal system with its juridical basis. Citations from nearly 600 international arbitral and judicial decisions amply testify to the role of these principles in the international legal system and illustrate their application in practically every important field of international law.
|9780521839112 Michela Mass Pauli s Exclusion Principle Cambridge Academ |
There is hardly another principle in physics with wider scope of applicability and more far-reaching consequences than Pauli's exclusion principle. This book
explores the principle's origin in the atomic spectroscopy of the early 1920s, its subsequent embedding into quantum mechanics, and later experimental validation with the development
of quantum chromodynamics. The reconstruction of this crucial historic episode provides an excellent foil to reconsider Kuhn's view on incommensurability.
defends the prospective rationality of the revolutionary transition from the old to the new quantum theory around 1925 by focusing on the way Pauli's principle emerged as a
phenomenological rule 'deduced' from some anomalous phenomena and theoretical assumptions of the old quantum theory. The subsequent process of validation is historically
reconstructed and analysed within the framework of 'dynamic Kantianism'. The variety of themes skilfully interwoven in this book will appeal to philosophers, historians, scientists and
anyone interested in philosophy.

|9781851491872 Gentle And F Domestic Metalwork Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
This is a revised and enlarged edition of the earlier standard work on the subject which should be essential reading for anyone with an interest in brass or the wider fields of metalwork and antiques. The book sets individual pieces in their historical background of design, manufacture and use. Brass objects, especially those dating from the period between the Restoration and the early 19th century, are capable of manifesting some of the finest qualities of English design and craftsmanship and, as everyday objects of use and ornament at all levels of society dating from before the machine age, they fully deserve our interest. Candlesticks and chandeliers are the most familiar of brass objects but the wealth of pictures in this book reveals the huge range and variety of other items made in metal, from buttons, drawer handles and coffin mounts to tableware, often closely resembling silver models, and fireside equipment. This revised and enlarged edition of the earlier standard work on the subject is for anyone with an interest in brass or in the wider fields of metalwork and antiques.
|9783764353612 Helmut Richter Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Helmut Richter's architecture is determined by the concept of progress: his buildings are hallmarks of the development of constructional engineering; his spatial concepts, especially in numerous housing projects, presume new social behaviours. Richter's oeuvre, which is comprehensively presented in this book, is characterized by an attitude directed towards an ultimate clarity and efficiency, understanding architecture as a risky yet vital process of insight, always experimenting with functional patterns and with buildings design, a continuous experiment with the limits of technology. Richter's most recent buildings are not only significant within 1990s Austrian architecture but also set a standard for international development. Since 1997 Helmut Richter has lived in Vienna as a freelance architect and since 1991 he has been teaching as a professor for building design and construction at Vienna Technical University.

The decorative arts of a brief period in the late 19th and early 20th centuries reflect the mood of the times - reaction was in the air and the result was a vogue for the ornamental style known as 'art noveau', a style characterised by naturalism, sinuous lines, asymmetrical forms and excellence in craftsmanship, and one which has been reassessed and rehabilitated in the latter part of the 20th century. A European phenomenon, the French led the field and the catalogues of the Paris Salons over a twenty year period illustrate work by such artists as Boucheron, Chaumet, Galle and Lalique. It is these catalogue illustrations which make up this unique pictorial encyclopaedia and bring together a record of the outstanding and imaginative work of art noveau artists and craftsmen by subject. Volume I comprises some 3,000 illustrations of jewellery by designers A-K; (L-Z) containing over 2,500 illustrations will be published shortly after Volume 1.

|9780500019566 Jay Brandt Thames & Hudson |
A comprehensive study of the work of photographer Bill Brandt, and a catalogue to an exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London. Brandt's work falls across a number of categories. He created odd, surrealist compositions, stemming from his early work in Man Ray's Paris studio, as well as telling images conveying social comment on Britain in the 1930s. His intensely dark portrayals of London and the industrial towns of northern England contrast with his softer, even lyrical evocations of landscape. He is perhaps best known for his sequence of ever more abstracted studies of the nude, but his telling portrayals of artists from the same period remain immediate and perceptive decades later. This book explores, on a large scale, all the different aspects of Brandt's work.

|9780810942936 Hermandez A G Rizzoli Abrams |
For almost 40 years, A.G. Rizzoli (1896-1981) worked as a draughtsman for a San Francisco architect. By night he made intricate coloured ink drawings of his dream city and other architectural visions. Skyscrapers, Gothic cathedrals, the Duomo in Milan - reconfigured and sometimes floodlit Hollywood-style - were intended as architectural stand-ins for people known to the artist. The recent discovery of these drawings has led to comparison with the work of Escher, Piranesi and Blake. They are reproduced in this volume, together with essays on his life, analyses of his work and writings, and notes on his sources of inspiration. The book is published to accompany a two-year travelling exhibition, starting in March 1997 at the San Diego Museum of Art, USA.

|9780500975961 Temples of Gold Thames & Hudson |
The exuberant wall paintings found in the Buddhist temples of Thailand enchant the eye and spirit with their subtle colour, lyrical line and vivid depiction of mythological and secular scenes inspired by ancient texts. These little-known masterpieces, reproduced here in exquisite detail, speak to us across the centuries with joy, humour and grace. Santi Leksukhum's text traces the complex history of these paintings. It examines the development of their distinctive style, from the arrival of Buddhism, to the overwhelming influence of the royal workshops of Bangkok, to the incorporation of Buddhist techniques as Thailand opened up to the West in the mid-nineteenth century. The rulers, who were believed to have divine power, imposed strict codes on subject matter, imagery and composition. Despite the extreme stylization, we see the hand of the artist in the freshness of the brushstrokes. The murals embrace opposing elements - the sacred and the profane, formality and spontaneity, the real and the imaginary - and combine them in harmonious compositions of startling beauty. The renowned French photographer Gilles Mermet made several expeditions to Thailand to photograph these magnificen

|9780813366081 Kroeker Remembering the End Perseus |
The Dostoevsky scholar Robert Louis Jackson said Dostoevsky's becoming is, of course, our own becoming; to know Dostoevsky has been to know our century and ourselves. Remembering the End: Dostoevsky as Prophet to Modernity pursues this statement while elucidating the spiritual realism of Dostoevsky's Biblically charged literary art.. Dostoevsky was one of those writers of the nineteenth century who came to be regarded by many readers in the following century as a prophet. How does he remain prophetic for us now, in the early twenty-first century? Remembering the End explores and assesses Dostoevsky's critique of modernity, with particular focus on the Grand Inquisitor (in The Brothers Karamazov ), where his prophetic vision finds its most intense expression. The authors write to elucidate the spiritual realism of Dostoevsky's biblically charged literary art, and to show how it can help us to remember who we are in this modern/postmodern moment in which--as individuals and members of communities--we are required to make critical choices about the meaning of justice, history, truth and happiness. The book will be of interest to readers in comparative literature, ethics, political theory, philosophy, religious studies and theology.
|9780500236697 Faberge: Lost and Found Thames & Hudson |
For more than 25 years, Carl Faberge and his firm served as jeweller and goldsmith to the tsars of Russia, European royalty, and the powerful and influential throughout the world. The masterpieces created by Faberge in the late 19th and early 20th centuries are almost legendary treasures of superb workmanship and originality. A. Kenneth Snowman tells the story of his recent and astonishing discovery in St Petersburg of two of the original design books from the House of Faberge. Within their pages are countless meticulous watercolour and ink drawings of virtually every item made by the company from 1909 to 1915. Each design is dated and accompanied by detailed handwritten instructions as to composition and execution. Hundreds of these invaluable and incredibly beautiful drawings are reproduced here for the first time, most in full colour, with captions describing the gems, the materials to be used, and the date of manufacture. Often the actual finished pieces are photographed next to the original drawings. Among the ingenious marvels are those commissioned for the 300th anniversary celebration of the House of Romanoff, and the famous miniature and large Imperial Easter eggs, including the one owned by Queen Elizabeth II. Gold boxes, animal and bird carvings, necklaces, earrings, pendants, rings and diadems are amongst the jewels on display. A. Kenneth Snowman was curator and wrote the catalogues for the Faberge exhibitions at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, in 1977 and the Coopor-Hewitt Museum, New York, in 1983. He has written and edited many other books, including "The Master Jewelers" (Thames and Hudson, 1990).

|9780714838373 Modern House Phaidon Press Ltd. |
The 20th century has produced some of the most innovative and memorable designs for private houses, which have become architectural icons worldwide. In the 1920s and 1930s, the private house was the means by which architects established the early Modern Movement, and clients looked favourably on commissioning the avant garde. Today, the house is enjoying an architectural renaissance, as private clients have returned to architects to express their wealth and status. The result is a collection of innovative projects that reveal some of the real concerns of world-famous architects, and display the talents of younger designers eager to establish their reputations. The 30 houses from around the world included in this book were completed in the 1990s, revealing developments in house design by notable contemporary architects, and demonstrating continuing links with the work of the early 20th-century masters.

Laybrinths and mazes are found all over the world and have been a source of wonder throughout history. This work explores the many aspects of labyrinths from their architectural, astrological and myological significance to their iconographical , mathematical and artistic fascination. It is an introduction to such different labyrinth forms as rock engravings on Trojan castles, medieval manuscripts, church labyrinths and Baroque garden mazes. He traces the origins, developments and changing meanings of this mystic form from the Bronze Age to the present day. The labyrinth's dominant position in Western civilization is supplemented by explorations in other cultures around the globe, including those of Egypt, India and North America. By taking a close look through the centuries at different cultures and across the continents, the cultural and historical significance of the maze takes on a new light.
|9781860469442 Morazzoni m Alphonse courrier affair, the Random House |
Seething beneath the veneer of the humdrum daily round, detectable often in nothing more than a glance, a gesture, is a high charge of passion that displays Morazzoni's irresistible facility for creating unstoppable page-turners. In a village in the Auvergne a hundred years ago Alphonse Courrier set up shop as an ironmonger and prospered sufficiently to maintain a mistress, Adele, a girl too plain to merit a second glance, and a wife, the pretty Agnes. The wife engages a maid, Germaine, to come in and scrub the floor. Germaine takes a shine to Alphonse. With time the ironmonger is blessed with two boys, and loses his elderly mother. All goes like clockwork in this honourable menage until Alphonse's companion the local vet discovers in himself an unarguable attraction for Madame Courrier, and the lady is sufficiently bored to reciprocate. The mistress Germaine diees in a fire, which might have been arson; at all events the flames were clearly fanned by the virulent village gossips. In a village where nothing happens, what goes on beneath the surface to disrupt the calm is everyone's business.

|9780126730500 Viruses and Human Disease Elsevier Science |
No cure has ever been found for a viral infection. As a result, research along thelines is extremely important, particularly the applications to human viral diseases. Viruses and Human Disease is the first text to examine the connection between virology and human disease. It is also the first book to integrate basic virology with pathophysiological conditions. By contrast, most virology textbooks focus on the molecular biology involved without adequate reference to physiology. Viruses and Human Disease is four-colour throughout and contains clearly labeled figures and tables. This book is based upon the extensive course notes from Dr. James Strauss's class at the California Institute of Technology. It is intended as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students or as a supplemental reference for researchers in related fields.

|9783764365691 Koolhaas R Colours Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Three of today's great architects and designers reveal the colours which feature most significantly in their work. *The nature of colour should change - no longer just a thin layer of change, but something that genuinely alters perception" and this stipulation of Rem Koolhaas is echoed by the world famous architects and designers Alessandro Mendini and Norman Foster. In this volume, they present between them a total of 90 colours - each covering half a page - accompanied by comments on the background, the significance and the applications of the colours. The studies of colours from each office form the basis of this book, and were previously only available in extravagant individual editions. With this comprehensive and consistent presentation of the varying approaches to colour, we have a compendium which shows the wide use of colour in today's technologically advanced architecture with its modern, post-modern and deconstructive orientation. The range of examples of the colours in practice includes load-bearing structures, facades, interior designs, furnishing and the entire spectrum of product design.
