|9781876907129 Fentress Bradburn Millennium Cb Images |
One principle underpinning the designFentress Bradburn is that no consistent look is imposed. The firm's buildings are extremely divergent, depending on place and purpose. In large-scale works such as airports, the architecture often is based on a dramatic structural concept. But whatever the scale, the buildings express the character of the place - in local traditions and materials, in subtle adjustments in their prominence in the landscape or the urban scene. One of the firm's projects, the Denver airport, celebrates advanced technology because that's the essence of air travel, and it proclaims its immense importance on this flat landscape with a silhouette that echoes that of the mountains. On the other hand, another project, The National Museum of Wildlife Art, blends into the local outcroppings as thoroughly as an ancient Native American ruin. IMAGES' Millenium Series was designed to celebrate the arrival of the new millenium. It is a large format publication, filled with photographs, historically tracing the work of a selection of the century's most significant architects. Changes that have occured in design philosophy are also highlighted in words and in visual imagery, demonstrating how each firm has adapted to the changes of the times. Each publication is an exercise in understated elegance, doing justice to the tenacity and design skills of some of the world's best known twentieth century architects.

|9781904313083 Ferrater, Carlos Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Carlos Ferrater Lambarri was born in 1944 in Barcelona, where he graduated in architecture from the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in 1971. Since then he has worked as a designer in a professional studio, the architect Joan Guibernau becoming an associate in 1993. In 2001 he was appointed Professor of the Reale Academia Catalana de Belles Artes de Sant Jordi. His major realizations include the residential complex of S. Just Desvern in Barcelona, the extension project for Venice Cemetery and the "Rey Juan Carlos I" hotel in Barcelona. His originality lies in his art of combining modernism with particular features of local architecture. Ferrater's buildings, contrasting with urban realities, highlight the Mediterranean lifestyle. His latest designs, like the Impiva (Instituto de la pequena y mediana empresa de Valencia) Technology Research Centre at Castellon de la Plana, the Arruga Film Studios in Barcelona and the Congress Centre of Catalunia, reveal a new maturity in his prolific and increasingly reflective career.

David Hockney takes us on an enthralling intellectual and visual journey as he rewrites the story of how the great drawings and paintings of the last six centuries were created.

As well as being the presentation of more than two years' research, Secret Knowledge is an amazing detective story, as Hockney uncovers piece after piece of scientific and historical evidence, each one revealing further secrets of the past.

|9788884913838 Marietta Vin Francesco Foschi Thames & Hudson |
The first complete and up-to-date monograph devoted to the 18th-century painter Francesco Foschi (1710-1780), refined landscapist famous for his suggestive winter landscapes. Born in Ancona in 1710. Francesco Foschi had a prestigious career and became known as "Chevalier Foschi". His works were very much in vogue in the late 18th century and had high estimates. Among the many collectors known to have cherished his winter scenes, we find the Cardinal de Bernis, ambassador of France in Rome, Sir William Hamilton, British ambassador in Naples, the count d'Orsay, the Marchis de Robien, prince Camillo Borghese and Pauline Bonaparte. Of noble background, Foschi started his artistic training very early as a figure painter in the workshop of Francesco Mancini: his early paintings representing The Metamorphoses of Ovid (unfortunately now untraced) document his beginnings with figure paintings. In 1729 he arrived in Rome, where Gaspar Van Wittel had created great interest for this kind of paintings with city views, which were admired by many collectors. This new vogue influenced Foschi in changing his artistic direction, inclining him to paint landscapes and view paintings. In 1750 Foschi dated and signed his first known winter landscape and he did continue to paint this kind of paintings until his death (in 1780), reaching in them the highest level of his art. In his snowy landscapes, Foschi focuses on careful observation of nature (both atmospheric effects and notable details of the composition), using heavy brushstrokes and painting small figures in a soft, white landscape. The interrelationship of space, figures and nature, shapes and sophisticated colours (silvery grey clouds, snowy mountains, brown rocks) create a scene of tranquil harmony and peace.

|9781864700718 Beach Houses ACC-distribution titles |
This book visits some of the beach houses around the Australian continent and New Zealand. While many of these homes go well beyond the humble shack in terms of design, they display a rawness and sense of adventure that is indicative of both cultures. Whether the beach house is camouflaged by coastal bushland, or cuts a monumental swathe above the shoreline, the sites prove far more difficult than those of the suburban street. Nevertheless, the onstraints are challenged head on, creating adventurous architecture in the process. The houses featured in this book are as diverse as the architets and climates that surround both of these countries. Some of the many architects included in this book are: Glenn Murcutt, Harry Siedler, Pete Bossley, Architectus, Craig Graig Moller, McBride Charles Ryan Architects, Brit Andersen, McGauran Soon Architects, Lindsay Clare and Cox Richardson.

|9782287597527 Pointillart Vertebral Metastases Springer |
This book, the result of close collaboration between two very specialized centers, one in spinal surgery, the other in oncology, was written to take stock of the current data on vertebral metastases. It is intended as both a pratical guide for all those involved in this field of care and a didactic reference for those who are less familiar with either of these specialties. All aspects of current knowledge of metastases are considered. Regarding diagnostics, MRI is at present indispensable and nessecitates a broad iconography. In the therapeutics section, so as to restituate vertebral metastasis in its proper general context, a chapter is devoted to the particularities of the treatment in terms of the primary cancer. This is fundamental since the sensitivity of tumors to systemic treatment is clearly not the same from one case to another. The role of surgery in vertebral metastases has changed completely over the last ten years with the increasing use osteosynthesis combined with decompressive procedures. The explanation of these techniques and their indications is largely based upon providing a suitable response to the mechanical problems posed at each location in the spinal column. Vertebroplasty and biphosphonates, two recent additions to the therapeutic armamentarium are detailed, along with conventional treatments such as radiation therapy and the comprehensive approach to pain management. In the present context of technological advances against vertebral metastases, physicians must not lose sight of the patient as an individual. This imperative prompted us to include a chapter on nursing and psychological cared. Another chapter addresses the continuity of care, placing responsability for the patient's management at present solely in the hands of a multidisciplinary team. A methodological review of the literature concludes that there still remains much work to be done for better assessment of the responsability for the welfare of these patients. Two leading US spinal surgeons have accepted to endorse this manuscript: J.P. Farcy and N. Sundaresan. The question of their contributing to the book was naturally raised. However, it seemed preferable to preserve the homogenous spirit driving the original group of collaborators.

Though as cunning as ever, the formidable Skullion - previously head porter, now elevated to Master - is showing signs of physical frailty after his stroke. So the tricky business of appointing a new Master must start all over again. Meanwhile the College's monstrous debts refuse to go away, and a sinister American media mogul seems determined to make a television documentary on the premises, destroying part of the chapel in the process. Moreover, the widow of the previous Master is convinced that her husband was murdered, so she plants an agent in the Senior Common Room to dig up an unpleasant truth that everyone else would prefer kept under the carpet. Faced with such continuing crises, the instinct of the true Porterhouse man is to reach for the bottle- or to fall back on the subtle and traditional Cambridge skills of blackmail and kidnap. But will those be enough?

|9780521009409 Richard Wort Situational Prison Control Cambridge Academ |
This book examines the control of problem behaviour in prison from a situational crime prevention perspective. Following the success of situational crime prevention in community settings, Richard Wortley argues that the same principles can be used to help reduce the levels of assault, rape, self-harm, drug use, escape and collective violence in our prison systems. This pioneering new study proposes a two-stage model of situational prevention that moves beyond traditional opportunity-reduction: it attempts to reconcile the contradictory urges to control prison disorder by ‘tightening-up’ and hardening the prison environment on the one hand, and ‘loosening-off’ and normalising it on the other. Combining a comprehensive synthesis and evaluation of existing research with original investigation and ground-breaking conclusions, Situational Prison Control will be of great interest to academics and practitioners both in the areas of correction and crime prevention more generally.

|9780821813751 Gaal, Lisl, Classical Galois theory with examples, 2 nd ed., Oxford Academ |
Galois theory is one of the most beautiful subjects in mathematics, but it is heard to appreciate this fact fully without seeing specific examples. Numerous examples are therefore included throughout the text, in the hope that they will lead to a deeper understanding and genuine appreciation of the more abstract and advanced literature on Galois theory. This book is intended for beginning graduate students who already have some background in algebra, including some elementary theory of groups, rings and fields. The expositions and proofs are intended to present Galois theory in as simple a manner as possible, sometimes at the expense of brevity. The book is for students and intends to make them take an active part in mathematics rather than merely read, nod their heads at appropriate places, skip the exercises, and continue on to the next section.

This blackly comic story of a Greek Cypriot family living on a council estate in 1980s Nottingham is told through the eyes of Anna, a first generation teenager who works in the family fish and chip shop. Anna feels frustrated and isolated, and is struggling to break with tradition and escape a life behind the counter but her formidable, extremely protective yet hilarious mother Tina thinks that education is wasted on a girl - all Anna needs to do is to cook well, wear terrible frilly blouses and keep out of trouble so that she attracts a nice, suitable Greek-Cypriot husband. The only person who really seems to understand Anna is her extraordinary, wise grandmother, Yiaya, who reads coffee cups and practices rudimentary magic, much to Tina's disapproval. Through Yiaya's storytelling, Anna learns about the turbulent history of her ancestral island, her grandfather who went missing in the war of 1974 and finally discovers the secrets that have shaped her family. There are moments of joy (wonderful feasts where the table heaves with Greek delicacies) and sadness (the family have to cope with the cruel bigotry of those around them). But is not until tragedy strikes that Anna begins to take control of her own destiny instead of complying with her loveable but domineering mother, who is all too willing to map out her daughter's life for her.

Laura Patterson is an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young - and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi - it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef. But Tomasso is the one who knows how to get the girls, and when Laura comes to dinner he persuades Bruno to help him with the charade. It works: the meal is a sensual feast, Laura is utterly seduced and Tomasso falls in lust. But it is Bruno, the real chef who has secretly prepared every dish Laura has eaten, who falls deeply and unrequitedly in love. A delicious tale of Cyrano de Bergerac-style culinary seduction, but with sensual recipes instead of love poems.

|9780333997598 Arestis, Phi Financial Liberalization Palgrave |
The financial liberalization thesis emerged in the 1970s and has been of considerable importance ever since, not merely in terms of its theoretical influence but, perhaps more importantly, in terms of its impact on policy makers and policy debates. Although it has encountered increasing scepticism over the years, it nevertheless had a relatively early impact on development policy, which still continues unabated, through the work of the IMF and the World Bank. The latter two institutions, perhaps in their traditional role as promoters of what were claimed to be free market conditions, were keen to encourage financial liberalization policies as part of more general reforms or stabilization programmes. This book explores what we have learned from the vast experience of the theoretical and policy aspects of the financial liberalization.

|9781851494934 Swiss Carvings Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
For many years 'Black Forest' carvings were thought to have been produced in the Bavarian Black Forest, in Germany, but it has now been established beyond all doubt that they were the sole province of the Swiss. The wood carving industry of Switzerland originated in the picturesque town of Brienz. From humble beginnings as a cottage industry in the early 1800s it grew, by the turn of the twentieth century, to become the industrial driving force of a whole community. By 1910 there were some thirteen hundred carvers plying their trade in the locality of Brienz. The carving industry was driven by the tourist industry; Brienz, Luzern, Interlaken and other such picturesque resorts were in vogue with the wealthy Victorians. Bears were particularly popular, being the symbol for the city of Berne, but musical boxes, musical chalets, furniture large and small, all figured in Swiss carving. The variety was immense, ranging from the religious, faithful reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" to the amusing and whimsical. Far from being 'mere whimsy' however, Swiss 'Black Forest' carvings were exhibited at the London Great Exhibition of 1851, Chicago 1893, Paris 1900 and at many of the other great international exhibitions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Carved wooden bears, stags, furniture and works of art from the Swiss 'Black Forest' carvers stood alongside such great exhibitors of the time as Tiffany, Galle and Linke. 'Black Forest' carvings were appreciated as truly great works of art at the time of their creation and indeed enjoyed royal patronage. Today there has been a tremendous revival in interest and the best pieces are highly sought after.

|9780826448620 Halliday/Teu Lexicology And Corpus Linguistics Continuum |
This textbook is a readable introduction to lexicology and corpus linguistics. Starting with a survey of lexicology - the study of words - written by eminent linguist M. A. K. Halliday, the book looks at the basic issues in defining and understanding the word as a unit of language. It examines thistory of lexicology, the evolution of dictionaries, and recent developments in lexicology. Colin Yallop takes this survey of lexicology further, to examine the relationship between words and meaning, etymology, prescription, language as social phenomenon and translation. In the second half of the textbook Wolfgang Teubert (one of the biggest names in Corpus Linguistics) and Anna Cermakova take lexicology into the field of corpus linguistics, introducing the key concepts in corpus linguistics and providing a brief history. This section expands the study of language and shows how corpus linguistics can advance our study of words and meaning, the benefits of studying the corpora, and how to meaning can best be conceptualised. Lexicology and Corpus Linguistics introduces the complicated field of corpus linguistics through lexicology. In so doing it explains the roots of corpus linguistics in easy to understand terms, and shows how lexicology can be advanced into other modes of linguistics. The book contains a glossary and suggestions for further reading, and will be useful to students trying to get a grasp on both subjects.

|9780006531753 Peter J. Con Iris Murdoch: A Life HarperCollins UK |
Dame Iris Murdoch has played a major role in English life and letter for nearly half a century. As A.S. Byatt notes, she is "absolutely central to our culture". As a novelist, as a thinker, and as a private individual, her life has significance for our age. There is a recognizable Murdoch world, and the adjective "Murdochian" has entered the language to describe situations where a small group of people interract intricately and strangely. Her story is as emotionally fascinating as that of Virginia Woolf, but far less well-known; hers has been an adventurous, highly eventful life, a life of phenomenal emotional and intellectual pressures, and her books portray a real world which is if anything toned down as well as mythicised. For Iris's formative years were spent among the leading European and British intellectuals who fought and endured World War II, and her life like her books was full of the most extraordinary passions and profound relationships with some of the most inspiring and influential thinkers, artists, writers and poets of that turbulent time and after.

|9780261102637 Tolkien J.R. Monsters and the Critics, The HarperCollins UK |
This book presents a complete collection of Tolkien's essays, including two on Beowulf, which span three decades beginning six years before "The Hobbit" to five years after "The Lord of the Rings". The seven 'essays' by J.R.R. Tolkien assembled in this new paperback edition were with one exception delivered as general lectures on particular occasions; and while they mostly arose out of Tolkien's work in medieval literature, they are accessible to all. Two of them are concerned with Beowulf, including the well-known lecture whose title is taken for this book, and one with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, given in the University of Glasgow in 1953. Also included in this volume is the lecture in English and Welsh; the Valedictory Address to the University of Oxfo in 1959; and a paper on Invented Languages delivered in 1931, with exemplification from poems in the Elvish tongues.

|9780787944568 Robert Birnb Management Fads in Higher Education: Where They Come From, What They Do, Why They Fail Wiley |
"Management fads in higher education will never be the same. Birnbaum's penetrating analysis reveals in the clearest possible terms why fads die an early death."--Burton R. Clark, Allan M. Carter Professor Emeritus of Higher Education and Sociology, University of California, Los Angeles"Anyone in higher education leadership should read this critical and amusing book. It goes much further than the dull descriptions of management techniques for universities and colleges. It is fair, convincing, and well documented."--Frans van Vught, Rector Magnificus, University of Twente, The Netherlands
When is a management innation truly a good idea, and when is it only a fad? In this thoughtful book, Robert Birnbaum scrutinizes the rise and fall of management fads in higher education since the 1960s. He shows administrators and faculty how to move beyond the hype of new fads to make wise, informed decisions and adopt sound management policies.
Birnbaum begins by analyzing the historical development of seven major management systems in higher education. From these histories, he develops a model for understanding the life cycle of management innovations, including their creation, development, and eventual adoption or abandonment. He then explains the social and environmental factors that make institutions vulnerable to fads, plus the psychological issues that may lead academic managers to support failing fads. This comprehensive resource is for anyone who wants to understand how management innovations can be used to strengthen the educational and social purposes of higher education.

way it seeks to engender change and promote its ethos in member states across the EU; and cyberterrorism and its use both by terrorists and governments to pursue political agendas.
This book features in-depth case studies on the progress of e-government in the UK, France, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia, Hungary, and

A panel of academic clinicians brings the art and science of the clinical cardiac examination to the bedside with a tour de force tutorial on the techniques needed to elicit various physical signs and to interpret them in relation to the patient's symptoms and underlying cardiac condition. Drawing on twenty-five years of teaching and training physicians and physicians-to-be, the authors integrate the physiology, pathophysiology, and mechanisms behind the various physical signs with a thorough and easy-to-use practical approach that makes physician feel more comfortable and competent performing the cardiac physical examination.

Number theory, spectral geometry, and fractal geometry are interlinked in this in-depth study of the vibrations of fractal strings, that is, one-dimensional drums with fractal boundary.Key Features: - The Riemann hypothesis is given a natural geometric reformulation in the context of vibrating fractal strings- Complex dimensions of a fractal string, defined as the poles of an associated zeta function, are studied in detail, then used to understand the oscillations intrinsic to the corresponding fractal geometries and frequency spectra- Explicit formulas are extended to apply to the geometric, spectral, and dynamic zeta functions associated with a fractal- Examples of such formulas include Prime Orbit Theorem with error term for self-similar flows, and a tube formula- The method of diophantine approximation is used to study self-similar strings and flows- Analytical and geometric methods are used to obtain new results about the vertical distribution of zeros of number-theoretic and other zeta functionsThroughout new results are examined. The final chapter gives a new definition of fractality as the presence of nonreal complex dimensions with positive real parts.The significant studies and problems illuminated in this work may be used in a classroom setting at the graduate level. Fractal Geometry, Complex Dimensions and Zeta Functions will appeal to students and researchers in number theory, fractal geometry, dynamical systems, spectral geometry, and mathematical physics.

|9780300107180 Spies Max Ernst: A Retrospective Yale University Press |
Max Ernst (1891-1976) was a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century art. A leader of the Dada movement in Germany, he later joined the circle of
writers and artists gathered in Paris around Andre Breton, the unofficial founder of the Surrealist movement. At the outset of World War II, Ernst fled Germany for the United States, first
going to New York and eventually settling in Sedona, Arizona.
Ernst returned to Europe in 1950 and continued to explore Surrealist imagery and methods throughout his life.
This important book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Ernst's work held in the United States in thirty years. It examines his pioneering accomplishments in painting,
collage, and sculpture and considers his use of the techniques of frottage, grattage, and decalcomania.
Also featured are Ernst's unique collage novels - narratives comprising
disparate images culled from nineteenth-century engravings and combined in surreal, unsettling compositions. Leading scholars write on various aspects of Ernst's life and art: Werner
Spies on the Ernst in America; Ludger Derenthal on Ernst and politics; Pepe Karmel on Ernst and contemporary art; Thomas Gaehtgens on Ernst and the old masters; and Robert Storr
on the collage novels. This book accompanies an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to run between April 4-July 10, 2005.

Pondering the origins of the world and their own ancestry, African societies often sought to provide answers to these and other perplexing concepts in their oral
traditions, poetry and art. The Bamana people of Mali, for example, attributed the invention of agriculture and their understanding of the earth, animals and plants to a mythical hero
called Chi Wara, shown in sculptural form as a roan antelope. The elegant Chi Wara headdresses were created in wood in male-female pairs and worn during agricultural
This volume examines the Chi Wara headdress as an icon of African sculpture and presents 40 examples of this well-known form. Major artistic traditions in other
African societies - including the Dogon of Mali; the Yoruba of Nigeria; the Bwa, Bobo, Kurumba and Mossi of Burkina Faso; the Kuba and Luba of the Democratic Republic of the
Congo; and the Chokwe of Angola and Zambia - are also discussed in terms of the distinctive cultural perspectives and local traditions that inspired them. The masterworks featured and
analyzed are drawn from public and private collections in the United States.

Joining Society asks precise questions: To what are the young socialized? Which skills, modes of thinking or action are required from them and what are their developmental value? Socialization tends to be viewed within the confines of a particular geographical or cultural situation. The multi-national list of contributors brings an international perspective to the problem of socialization to work and to adult life, while at the same time emphasizing the common issues that face youth around the world. Some of the topics addressed are the rules and roles involved in socialization, attaining personal agency through collective activity, use of new technologies, and the role of intergenerational relationships. This book sheds new light on the processes through which society may hope to intervene in positive ways with today’s youth.

|9783527310562 Hausen Infections causing Human Cancer Wiley |
This book is written by the Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine 2008. In the 1970s, the author of this work and his co-workers initially found
Epstein-Barr virus DNA in Burkitt's lymphomas and nasopharyngeal cancer and made the connection between HPV infection and cervical cancer. It was also during this period and
subsequently that scientists all over the world discovered tumor-inducing bacteria, viruses, parasites, and protozoa, opening up entirely new prospects for the prevention and treatment
of infection-induced cancer by vaccination.
Adopting a unifying concept and a consistent structure for the individual chapters, Professor zur Hausen provides a thorough and
comprehensive overview on cancer-inducing infective agents - viruses, bacteria and parasites - and their corresponding transforming capacities and mechanisms. He does not cover
the structure and molecular biology of the agents presented in great detail, but rather concentrates on those aspects that link the respective agents to human oncogenesis. As such, an
extensive bibliography after each chapter permits further studies on the subject.
With a chapter on Helicobacter written by James Fox and his colleagues at Harvard
University, this is an invaluable and instructive reference for all oncologists, microbiologists and molecular biologists working in the area of infections and cancer.

|9789748304960 Thai Reference Grammar Kodansha Europe Limited |
"Thai Reference Grammar" was written to meet the need of students and teachers of the Thai language for information on advanced sentence structure. The
book is divided into chapters based on common grammatical-structural categories. There are over 500 separate topics, and the most important feature is the sample sentences for each
topic, of which there are over 2,000.
These sentences are not stuffy, old-fashioned grammar examples, but samples of typical, idiomatic spoken Thai.The authors, an
American and a Thai both with advanced degrees in linguistics and language teaching, analyzed thousands of Thai sentences to formulate clear and concise explanations for all the
important sentence patterns of the Thai language. Examples are given in both Thai script and transliterated Thai, written in the English alphabet with no special phonetic symbols. Tones
are marked with a special font that shows the level of the sound of each word, essential to pronunciation in tonal languages like Thai.Originally published in 2001, "Thai Reference
Grammar" is now in its fourth printing.
This is the only book to explain higher-level Thai sentence structure and functional vocabulary. It presents clear explanations of
advanced structure, illustrated with examples of typical Thai speech.

|9780521891004 Maureen Perr The Image of Ivan the Terrible in Russian Folklore Cambridge Academ |
Ivan the Terrible has long been a controversial figure. Some historians regard him as a crazed and evil tyrant; while others (especially Soviet scholars of the Stalin period) have viewed him as a progressive and far-sighted statesman. The folklore about Ivan has played an important part in these debates. Was Ivan's depiction in folklore favourable or hostile? And how far can it be regarded as evidence of contemporary popular attitudes towards the tsar? In this unusual and far-ranging study, Maureen Perrie discusses the nature of Ivan's image in Russian folklore; its historical basis; its development; and the controversies which have surrounded it in pre-revolutionary and Soviet Russian scholarship. She argues that Ivan was in general portrayed in folklore in a positive light, but that this image does not necessarily reflect sixteenth-century views.

|9780521839686 William E. B Sodomy, Masculinity and Law in Medieval Literature Cambridge Academ |
William Burgwinkle surveys poetry and letters, histories and literary fiction - including Grail romances - to offer a historical survey of attitudes towards same-sex
love during the centuries that gave us the Plantagenet court of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, courtly love, and Arthurian lore. Burgwinkle illustrates how 'sodomy' becomes a
problematic feature of narratives of romance and knighthood. Most texts of the period denounce sodomy and use accusations of sodomitical practice as a way of maintaining a
sacrificial climate in which masculine identity is set in opposition to the stigmatised other, for example the foreign, the feminine, and the heretical.
What emerges from these
readings, however, is that even the most homophobic, masculinist, and normative texts of the period demonstrate an inability or unwillingness to separate the sodomitical from the
orthodox. These blurred boundaries allow readers to glimpse alternative, even homoerotic, readings.

|9780300120790 Worthington Philip II Of Macedonia Yale University Press |
Alexander the Great is probably the most famous ruler of antiquity, and his spectacular conquests are recounted often in books and films. But what of his
father, Philip II, who united Macedonia, created the best army in the world at the time, and conquered and annexed Greece? This landmark biography is the first to bring Philip to life,
exploring the details of his life and legacy and demonstrating that his achievements were so remarkable that it can be argued they outshone those of his more famous son. Without
Philip, Greek history would have been entirely different.Taking into account recent archaeological discoveries and reinterpreting ancient literary records, Ian Worthington brings to light
Philip's political, economic, military, social, and cultural accomplishments.
He reveals the full repertoire of the king's tactics, including several polygamous diplomatic marriages,
deceit, bribery, military force, and a knack for playing off enemies against one another. The author also inquires into the king's influences, motives, and aims, and in particular his
turbulent, unraveling relationship with Alexander, which may have ended in murder. Philip became in many ways the first modern regent of the ancient world, and this book places him
where he properly belongs: firmly at the centrestage of Greek history.

|9780500280829 Steele The Complete Architecture of B Doshi Thames & Hudson |
The 40-year career of Balkrishna Doshi has been devoted to finding the proper balance between modern architecture and the rich indigenous traditions of India. As apprentice to Le Corbusier and friend of Louis Kahn, Doshi has worked with two of the most important pioneers of modernism on projects that have made a major contribution to both his own national tradition and the humane basis of modernism as a whole. The range of his ideas is fully explored in this book: adaptations of ancient Hindu geometry to contemporary town planning; the use of mythological figures, such as the Cobra King, as the inspiration for a free-form museum; and historical landmarks, such as the Ellora and Ajanta caves, as the basis for the design of a contemporary office building, the Diamond Bourse in Bombay. Illustrated with photographs and plans and complete with a comprehensive chronology of all the architect's works, this book should be influential not only in the developing countries themselves but also with the wider Western audience increasingly drawn to the principles of progress firmly rooted in tradition and of respect for human needs exemplified by Doshi's achievement.

As art critic for The New Republic , Jed Perl is renowned for combining a passion for art and a skepticism about the current art establishment with an ability to write about art in the context of our larger culture.

|9780714839936 Comics, comix & graphic novels Phaidon Press Ltd. |
For more than a century the comic book has been one of our most familiar, yet least appreciated popular art forms. As vehemently criticized as it is passionately defended, it has evolved from humble beginnings into a graphically sophisticated and culturally revealing medium. At a time when vintage comics are fetching huge prices at auction, this book traces the history of the medium from comic papers for kids, through the underground "comix" movements of the 1960s and '70s, to the glossy book-format "graphic novels" of today. Organized thematically, it investigates comic art's varied genres - including humour, adventure, underground and alternative - and charts the rise, fall and rise of the medium. In so doing, Roger Sabin highlights the careers of the creators behind some of the best-known characters in modern fiction - from Superman to Sid the Sexist, Tintin to Tank Girl. He examines not only the stars and "first wave" of comic art but also the names who are currently providing comics with a new lease of life, taking such familiar material as the manic clowning of Leo Baxendate ("The Beano"), the observational adventure of Frank Hampson ("Eagle"), the bombastic power-plays of Jack Kirby ("The Incredible Hulk") and the underground scatology of Robert Crumb ("Zap"), as well as less well-known themes and names: the surreal 1950s retro of Dan Cloves ("Eightball"), the gothic superheroics of Todd McFarlane ("Spawn"), the inspired lunacy of Chris Donald (

'Ah, the taste and feel of blood when all passion and greed is sharpened in that one desire!' Lestat: a vampire - but very much not the conventional undead, for Lestat is the truly alive. Lestat is vivid, ecstic, stagestruck, and in his extravagant story he plunges from the lasciviousness of eighteenth-century Paris to the demonic Egypt of prehistory; from fin-de-siecle New Orleans to the frenetic twentieth-century world of rock superstardom - as, pursued by the living and the dead, he searches across time for the secret of his own dark immortality.
