|9781904313076 Le Corbusier - Les Voyages D Allemagne - Carnets Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Le Corbusier's notebooks pertaining to his German travels precede those of the "Orient", spanning the period from April to May 1911. His travels in Germany, visiting Munich, Berlin, Halle, Naumburg, Ratisbon and Augsburg, enabled Le Corbusier to meet personalities who would have a profound influence on him: among others Theodore Fischer, representing the most nonconformist trend in German architecture, Baron Gunther von Pechmann, William Ritter, a critic and a man of letters, and lastly Peter Behrens. It becomes apparent in the German notebooks that the architect changed the initial purpose of his trip - to draw up a report on the overall situation of applied art in German schools on behalf of the Ecole d'Art of La Chaux-de-Fonds - becoming instead more and more absorbed in the great urbanistic programmes, the themes of working-class housing, the need to complete his own training as an architect. In these notebooks, writings, short critical comments, travel impressions and notes accompany an impressive number of drawings, landscapes and monuments, design studies and watercolours, that show how receptive Le Corbusier became to the important ideological and urbanistic issues of the time.
|9780714838526 Piero Della Francesca A&I Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Piero della Francesca (c.1413-92) is one of the most intriguing artists of the early Italian Renaissance, known not only for the balance of his compositions and the emotional coolness of his style, but also for his outstanding talent as a mathematician. Taking advantage of documentary evidence that has emerged, particularly since the quincentenary of the artist's death in 1992, Piero scholar Marilyn Aronberg Lavin covers all aspects of the career of an artist who can justifiably be called a "Renaissance Man". Born in Sansepolcro, a small town on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, Piero del Francesca worked there periodically throughout his life. But he also travelled elsewhere in Italy - to Florence and Rome for brief periods, and to Urbino (the location of his famous "Flagellation"), Arezzo ("Legend of the True Cross" fresco cycle), Rimini and Ferrara. He was well respected and worked for the provincial rulers in these cities. However, his fame was not just due to his skill as a painter. Concurrently, he pursued his interest in mathematics and wrote three treatises on the subject. This work was linked to his artistic output - the application of the rules of perspective in his compositions, with their structured spaces and idealized shapes, are one of the reasons why he has become so univesally admired and studied in the modern era.

|9780415276887 Ashford The Parasites of Homo Sapiens. 2ed.2003 Taylor&Francis |
Homo sapiens rank among the most parasitic of all animals. In part this is because we know so much about all aspects of the biology of our species, but in addition our varied habitat and diet, and our global distribution exposes us to more infections than any other species. Whereas some familiar parasitic infections are responsible for much human disease and suffering, the great majority are rare or obscure forms ignored by all but the most comprehensive texts. The Parasites of Homo Sapiens is the first book to present a comprehensive listing of them all. Closely following the pattern of the first edition, this new edition incorporates a wealth of further information and data from the most recently published research findings. An indispensable guide for all parasitologists, it presents a comprehensive checklist of all animals naturally parasitic in or on the human body. Each parasite listed includes a complete summary of its characteristics.

|9780300084085 Pre-Raphaelite Landscape, The Yale University Press |
Allen Staley's book The Pre-Raphaelite Landscape ignited a revival of interest in Pre-Raphaelite painting nearly three decades ago. Reintroducing the small group of young English artists who in 1848 founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, this landmark book helped to attract both scholars and a new generation of admirers to the brilliant and audacious work of the Pre-Raphaelites.

|9781851491612 Black Basalt Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
In this work on black basalts the author has found much original and fascinating to say, since a great deal of fresh material has come to light and further research carried out over the years. The prominence of Josiah Wedgwood, as the developer of the material, and his refinements in ornament and marketing skills, ensured his factory was the market leader in the days when basalt was at its most fashionable, towards the latter part of the 18th and the early 19th century. But over 170 other factories are noted here as makers of the ware, and the author gives much new information on the histories and products in all their diversity, with many illustrations hitherto unpublished. Diana Edwards also examines the historical antecedents of English Black Basalt, unmarked and unidentified wares, and Continental and foreign Blackware manufacturers. The book is aimed at ceramic historians, collectors, curators, dealers and should be useful as a reference work in libraries.

Brought up to regard copious flows of money as his birthright, he can't understand why the funds have been cut off, nor why friends he recruited as Lloyds' Names no longer want to talk to him. When gambling fails, Timothy turns to embezzlement, but it's the lesser offence of helping himself to some strangely aromatic tobacco that propels him up the motorway and into bed with the Chief Constable's wife. The Chief Constable has just survived charges of bribery and perjury and is not too concerned that his efforts to dispose of Timothy involve false imprisonment, breaking and entering, and a spot of GBH. It is only when the Chief tries to frame his old adversary, the upright Miss Midden, hat things begin to go seriously wrong as his underhand ploy opens up the way to spectacular mayhem.

|9783211829745 Alt Dental Anthropology Springer |
The study of teeth is an important key to the biology and culture of past and living populations. Their extreme hardness, their numerous and highly heritable characteristics and their susceptibility to environmental responses allow inferences of human evolution, adaptation, living conditions, environments, group affinity, kinship and the life and death of single persons. This has been gradually discovered during the last thirty years, and it lead to the formation of the new field of dental anthropology. It is rooted in biology and has strong ties to dentistry, forensics and the humanities. This book gives a comprehensive view of this new field of dental anthropology. It provides a basic introduction as well as a reference for the specialist in anthropology, forensics, ecology, paleontology and dentistry. Most aspects are completely new, particularly the syntheses. The basic experience and literature is of a broad international and multilingual origin.

The biopsychosocial model is an approach to medicine which considers factors outside the biological process of illness when trying to understand health and disease. In this approach, a person's social context and psychological wellbeing are key factors in their illness and recovery, along with their thoughts, beliefs and emotions. Biopsychosocial Medicine examines the concept and the utility of this approach, taking the examples of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, lower back pain, irritable bowel syndrome and depression to show how the model can be used in practice. It shows how effective it can be and provides solutions for implementing it in medical practice in all specialties.

The theme of the book is the distribution and abundance of organisms in space and time. The core of the book lies in how local births and deaths are tied to emigration and immigration processes, and how environmental variability at different scales affects population dynamics with stochastic processes and spatial structure and shows how elementary analytical tools can be used to understand population fluctuations, synchrony, processes underlying range distributions and community structure and species coexistence. The book also shows how spatial population dynamics models can be used to understand life history evolution and aspects of evolutionary game theory. Although primarily based on analytical and numerical analyses of spatial population processes, data from several study systems are also dealt with.

|9780521020015 Susan Layton Russian Literature and Empire Cambridge Academ |
This is the first book to provide a synthesising study of Russian writing about the Caucasus during the nineteenth-century age of empire-building. From Pushkin's ambivalent portrayal of an alpine Circassia to Tolstoy's condemnation of tsarist aggression against Muslim tribes in Hadji Murat, the literary analysis is firmly set in its historical context, and the responses of the Russian readership too receive extensive attention. As well as exploring literature as such, this study introduces material from travelogues, oriental studies, ethnography, memoirs, and the utterances of tsarist officials and military commanders. While showing how literature often underwrote imperialism, the book carefully explores the tensions between the Russian state's ideology of a European mission to civilise the Muslim mountaineers, and romantic perceptions of those tribes as noble primitives whose extermination was no cause for celebration. By dealing with imperialism in Georgia as well, the study shows how the varied treatment of the Caucasus in literature helped Russians construct a satisfying identity for themselves as a semi-European, semi-Asian people.

|9780764321535 Tina Skinne Geisha: women in Japan Flower &Willow World Schiffer |
This is the most comprehensive assembly of historic geisha images ever compiled in a book. Over 500 exquisite views - drawn from postcards produced primarily between 1900 and 1940 - illustrate the rarified world of Japans now-extinct licensed pleasure districts. Soon after the West pried open Japans doors in 1853, stories about Japan began to circulate wildly through Victorian societies. Geisha quickly attained folkloric status as both imagery, widely traveled stage productions, and titillating novels spread their fame, and postcards bearing their images circulated the globe. Enter a world dripping in symbolism, elevated by accomplishment. For the Westerner, it is a world of exotic misconceptions, characterized by a male fantasy of the submissive Asian beauty devoted to his pleasure. Equally exotic to the average Japanese, Geisha embody the highest level of a proud culture. Geisha are accomplished in music, letters, and the intricate art of the tea ceremony. Epitomizing feminine grace and beauty, geisha are always carefully adorned, every hair oiled into place, and every step and gesture perfectly executed. The comprehensive text introduces historical background about the talented geisha entertainers and other women who were indentured in virtual slavery within the famed and idealized "Flower and Willow World." High-class prostitutes, as well as lowly tea servers are pictured, and the life of early 20th century women in Japan is explored. The symbolic kimono, poses, and accouterments of the women photographed are explained in captioning that will help to open the eyes of many Westerners to Japanese culture, and help to debunk misconceptions regarding the status and nature of geisha. For the Japanese historian, this is the best source of original imagery ever assembled within two covers about Geisha. For anyone with even a casual interest in this utterly unique culture, this book will prove a captivating page turner. .

|9783540404835 Ohtsu M., Ko Optical Near Fields / Introduction to Classical and Quantum Theories of Electromagnetic Phenomena at the Nanoscale Springer |
Using the thin film of light, the optical near field, that is localized on the surface of a nanometric material has removed the diffraction limit as a barrier to imaging on the nano- and atomic scales. But a paradigm shift in the concepts of optics and optical technology is required to understand the instrinsic nature of the near fields and how best to exploit them. Professors Ohstu and Kobayashi crafted Optical Near Fields on the basis of their hypothesis that the full potential for utilizing optical near fields can be realized only with novel nanometric processing, functions, and manipulation, i.e., by controlling the intrinsic interaction between nanometer-sized optical near fields and material systems, and further, atoms. The book presents physically intuitive concepts and theories for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in research in nanophotonics and atom photonics.

|9781845424428 The Evolution of Efficient Common Law Edward Elgar Publishers |
This volume contains a selection of the most important articles on the issue of the evolution of the common law. The notion that evolutionary forces would lead
to common law efficiency has been very influential in the study of the economics of law. Even those scholars who do not believe that the law is efficient will find it useful to consider the
evolutionary forces identified in this volume.
In an even-handed approach, Professor Rubin has selected not only articles which advance the hypothesis of efficient evolution,
but also those which claim that the evolutionary process is not efficient. Further articles show that the process is indeed sometimes efficient and sometimes not, and identify those
conditions which bring about more of less efficiency in the evolution of law. This authoritative collection will be useful to anyone who is concerned with the sources of efficiency and
inefficiency in the law, as well as to scholars pursuing research in this area.

|9781851495917 Milner Rodchenko: Design Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891-1953) was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. One of the founders of constructivism and
Russian design, he was married to and collaborated with the artist Varvara Stepanova. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after
the Russian Revolution.
He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally
innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles usually high above or
below to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition.
He wrote: 'One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations,
as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again'. This concise, comprehensive and informative work focuses largely on Rodchenko's
graphic work in the form of book jackets, posters and advertising.

|9781854902399 Periphery Grange Books |
The peripheral urban condition has long been understood as the demarcation of the city limit where built form confronts unbuilt territory and where the artificial confronts the natural. It has traditionally implied a zone of limited political intent where fragmented infrastructure overlaps dispersed urban form and where the historical, the natural and the expectant co-exist. As city sprawl meets city sprawl the periphery has recently caught the attention of the media. AD explores these seductive marginal qualities, and present a selection of essays from leading architects, such as Carsten Juel-Christiansen, Bernard Tschumi, Rem Koolhaas, Steven Holl and theorists, such as Joel Garreau, Paul Virillo and many others from Europe and North America, who are engaged in this discourse that has been debated and investigated since the 50s and 60s. A topic that is now seen as a source for contemporary metropolitan solutions, new emphasis has been given to re-address the investigations of previous decades and now a quest for ambitious new forms of urbanity and for realising new strategies for the city of the 21st century has begun.

|9780500974117 Kirei Thames & Hudson |
These examples of modern Japanese poster design, brought together in an Anglo-Japanese co-publication, show a vibrant modern tradition that has developed its own independent spirit. Here old and new, East and West, meet in creative fusion. The classical aesthetic of Japanese culture is evident in every instance. It is encapsulated in the word "kirei", which embraces simplicity, beauty, purity and ambience, and demands a high level of technical and formal skill combined with a particular subtlety of expression. At the same time, these posters inspire new ways of seeing. The boldness of their coded forms frees them from the banality of everyday advertising. The advertised products themselves need not appear at all. The designs evolve their own strange, fascinating messages, delightful conundrums of discovery and deconstruction. Created by a culture famed for its devotion to the fleeting instant, the Japanese poster crystallizes evocative, enduring images within a single glimpse.
|9780714829678 Klimt Art in Vienna 1898-1918 Phaidon Press Ltd. |
The artistic stagnation of Vienna at the end of the nineteenth century was rudely shaken by the artists of the Secession. Their works at first shocked a conservative public; but their successive exhibitions, their magazine "Ver Sacrum", and their application to the applied arts and architecture soon brought them an enthusiastic following and wealthy patronage. This book traces the course of this development, of the Wiener Werkstatte that followed, and the individual works of the artists concerned. Klimt, Olbrich, Loos and Hoffmann in architecture and applied arts. In other fields Mahler, Freud and Schnitzler were influencing the avant-garde. Peter Vergo quotes extensively from the writings of contemporary reviewers, critics and the artists themselves. He has eye-witness accounts of the exhibitions, the opening of the Secession building, the work in progress on the Palais Stoclet and Kabarett Fledermaus. The result is a documentary study of the successes and failures, hopes and fears of the members of an artistic movement which is still admired toda

|9780714840970 Architecture today Phaidon Press Ltd. |
This work is a comprehensive overview of architecture worldwide since the 1960s. A guide to the many and varied contemporary architectural trends, it leads the reader through the styles and movements of architecture in the latter half of the 20th century. The Modern Movement in architecture early in the 20th century gave rise to the "International Style" - architecture was intended to transcend its time and place and provide a new world order in building and city planning. In the 1960s, modernism was seriously challenged by architects who began to question the validity of its principles. In place of modernism, a diverse array of building types and styles, driven by new architectural beliefs and theories, began to emerge. This text is an attempt to make sense of the plalistic nature of contemporary architecture, by offering an accessible critique of the world's most prominent architectural movements and trends.
