|9780789207487 Carter Ratcl John Singer Sargent Abbeville Press |
The name of John Singer Sargent evokes paintings of marvelously gowned Edwardian belles, of brooding aristocrats and princes of industry-inshtful portraits executed with dazzling virtuosity. Sargent's enduring popularity has prompted a thoughtful reappraisal by prominent art critic Carter Ratcliff, who shows us the surprising breadth of the artist's work. Never before has a book so thoroughly represented that variety: 110 lavish color plates and more than 200 halftones convey the brillance of his portraits, the exuberance of his watercolors, the stately pomp of his murals. It is perhaps the watercolors that are most exciting to contemporary eyes-bold, spontaneous, and vividly hued, they have a breathtaking immediacy. Born in Florence in 1865 to American parents, Sargent spent a nomadic childhood before going to Paris to study painting. He learned quickly and by the 1880s had begun the steady climb to fame that ultimately placed him at the center of his world, with a circle of friends and rivals that included Henry James, Claude Monet, and James McNeill Whistler. When Sargent died in 1925, a childhood companion wrote in her memorial that "the summing up of a would-be biography must, I think be: He painted."

|9780071203418 Brown Pathology: Pretest Self Assessment & Review McGraw-Hill |
The Pre-Test Basic Science Review series is designed to simulate the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1, which medical students take between their second and third years of medical school. These 500 question, answer and explanation books tap into students' examination anxiety - the questions allow students to hone their exam-taking skills, and the referenced answers/expanations provide students with brief, high-yield subject reviews. Each book contains a section of high-yield facts that emphasize key concepts. The USMLE is becoming increasingly clinical in nature. Many questions have taken the form of clinical vignettes, integrating several subjects and emphasizing problem solving. These new questions often require students to use a "two-step" reasoning process. The new edition of this book is thoroughly revised to eliminate all outdated question types (such as matching sections and negatively-phrased questions) and replace them with single-best-answer multiple-choice questions. Many new questions are in two-step clinical format to simulate the USMLE Step 1. The revision will also contain simpler questions to test basic science knowledge, which is integral to students' abilities to answer two-step questions. "Pathology: Pre Test Self-Assessment and Review", 10th edition, contains over 200 new questions, many in clinical-vignette format, for a total of 500 questions. Concise explanations for each question are referenced to core books used by medical students during their pathology course. They explain not only why correct answers are correct, but why incorrect answers are wrong.

Maya and Ilan have an unusual marriage: Maya agrees to tolerate Ilan's chronic infidelity as long as she can participate and he will never stray without her. To her surprise, she finds their threesomes as arousing as they are disturbing and, for a while, everything seems fine. But as Maya's writing career takes off and she becomes more independent, Ilan feels threatened, and opts for another kind of sexual experimentation - one that plays on Maya's fear and ultimately threatens her life. Meanwhile, Maya is drawn into another relationship with a fateful third character. When her new liaison begins to mirror her marriage to Ilan, Maya discovers that her lover, seemingly a stranger, knows far more about her past than she has revealed. A compelling chronicle of obsession and power, 3 brings new immediacy to a timeless question: what is the greatest sacrifice you would make for love?

|9780521549929 Allen C. Lyn How Russia is Not Ruled Cambridge Academ |
The state remains as important to Russia’s prospects as ever. This is so not only because, as in any society, an effectively functioning state administration is necessary to the proper functioning of a complex economy and legal system, but also because, in Russian circumstances, factors of economic geography tend to increase costs of production compared to the rest of the world. These mutually reinforcing factors include: the extreme severity of the climate, the immense distances to be covered, the dislocation between (European) population centers and (Siberian) natural resource centers, and the inevitable predominance of relatively costly land transportation over sea-borne transportation. As a result, it is questionable whether Russia can exist as a world civilization under predominantly liberal economic circumstances: in a unified liberal global capital market, large-scale private direct capital investment will not be directed to massive, outdoor infrastructure projects typical of state investment in the Soviet period.
|9783764364595 Mechanisms of Angiogenesis Springer |
The induction of blood vessel growth as part of an adaptive process can be either exaggerated, such as in tumors, or too slow, as in ischemic diseases of heart and brain. Therefore it is an interesting target for medical intervention. This volume presents a thorough reconsideration of our current knowledge of factors and principles involved in angiogenic processes. It proceeds from a "macroscopic " perspective through cellular and physical mechanisms to the molecular level . In the first part, angiogenesis in physiological as well as pathological processes is described with a focus on embryogenesis, the reproductive system and the growing heart. The second part deals with cellular and physical mechanisms leading to angiogenesis, and the last part presents a deeper insight into molecular mechanisms of blood vessel growth, including knockout studies of essential angiogenic molecules, the identification of signaling steps in angiogenesis and the importance of cellular junctions.

|9780826455086 Martin/Rose Working With Discourse Continuum |
Designed for researchers and students interested in exploring how speakers and writers construe meaning through discourse, this title draws on tools for discourse analysis developed in systemic functional linguistics and register and genre theory. It requires no prior knowledge of functional linguistics, and avoids academic complexity wherever possible. It builds an accessible set of analytic tools that can be used with ease by scholars from a range of disciplines. These tools are introduced in clear steps through analyses of a set of stories, argumts, reviews, procedures and other texts, that exemplify how meanings are constructed and contested in a culture, by focusing on current issues of truth and reconciliation in post-apartheid South Africa. Readers are guided through these text analyses from five complimentary perspectives on meaning.

|9781592531868 Art of Promotion Rockport/Rotovision |
For all its power to make pieces "pop," technology can be a challenge for designers to harness with confidence. Technology only improves a design if it actually works - a risk many professionals are afraid to take for fear of the repercussions. This book enables designers of all ability levels to confidently employ technology in ways that distinguish their work from the competition. The author deconstructs an array of exciting pieces that have used everything from unique bindings to unconventional printing surfaces to die-cut constructions. Each technique's advantages and limitations are explored in full detail, enabling designers to choose the right option for their budget, ability, and market. In addition, many pieces include step-by-step details which that illustrate how to achieve the same effect "on the cheap." For professionals and students alike, this book offers creative ways to leverage the power of technology in design.

|9780711224308 Peter Hayden Russian Parks and Gardens Frances Lincoln |
Garden historian Peter Hayden narrates a comprehensive history of the parks and gardens of Russia, spanning a thousand years from the first Byzantine-influenced gardens in the 10th century AD, through to the present day. Along the way, he discusses the influence of Peter the Great, who introduced ideas, plants and designers from Holland, France and Germany to create St Petersburg's Summer Garden and the great formal garden at Peterhof by the Gulf of Finland. The introduction of the English style of landscaping owed much to Catherine the Great, and British gardeners were recruited to lay out parks for the Empress and rich nobles. With a wealth of illustration and with detailed discussion of some of the most beautiful and historically interesting parks and gardens in the world, this pioneering book promises to become an instant classic.

This successor to that volume represents what is happening now at the forefront of the architecture and decorating worlds. The homes, which have previously appeared in the New York Times Magazine, run the gamut from big to small, modest to grand, retro to cutting-edge. There are homes in and around New York, Idaho, California, and Miami and their diversity shows that of all today's trends, eclecticism rules.The homes are divided into four categories: The New Classics, The Mavericks, Modern Living, and Personality Profiles. The homes often prove to be personal, vivid, and sometimes idiosyncratic portraits of the people who designed them or live in them. About half the dwellings shown are designers' own homes, including architect Ron Radziner of Marmol Radziner and Associates, artist/designer Jonathan Adler, and two homes of famed designers Diamond Baratta.

Yet despite the apparent sexual liberalism, to be a woman shamed is to be worthless, nameless and to risk exile. At the start of the novel the greatest scandal imaginable has taken place. Kanesuke, the narrator's beloved (and also the lover of Izumi) has seduced the Virgin of Ise - one of the Emperor's daughters. He is banished from court, but his influence grows yet more powerful in the minds of the women left behind.

|9780195154467 Winks Europe 1648-1815 Oxford Academ |
In 1648, Europe was reeling from the destabilizing effects of religious conflict, economic change, and social upheaval. The issues that divided the Church in the late Middle Ages had forced Europeans to choose sides in a bitter and bloody Catholic/Protestant conflict. A powerful capitalist movement had broken down old social ties, leading to the near disappearance of serfdom in Western Europe and to the formation of a larger merchant class in the cities. The discoveries of the Scientific Revolution had begun to corrode old certainties about the universe, just as the exploration of the New World was revealing the existence of peoples, cultures, and even continents that would have been unimaginable to previous generations. In the face of such chaos, which led many to fear that society was heading towards an utter breakdown, the European elite engaged in a desperate effort to restore order. Between 1648 and 1750, peoples and governments throughout Europe sought to contain the shift toward anarchy through the reinforcement of religious orthodoxies, the strengthening of national states, and the stiffening of social hierarchies. But by the later eighteenth century, the success of this effort led paradoxically to new institutional and intellectual demands for change. The search for order had given way to a quest for progress. A new movement known as "the Enlightenment" was transforming the old order, and revolution was about to become a Western tradition. Europe, 1648-1815 is a concise narrative of this fascinating epoch in European history. Framing the events of the period in terms of two successive movements-the search for order and the pursuit of reform-this book surveys the political, economic, social, and cultural events of the period, from the rise of absolutism to the campaigns of Napoleon, from the creation of European empires in the Americas to the controversies of the Enlightenment. With numerous selections from primary sources, a detailed and updated bibliography, a chronology of the period, and numerous illustrations, Europe, 1648-1815 is indispensable for courses on Early Modern Europe. It can be used as a stand-alone textbook or in conjunction with supplementary readings.

|9780470014677 Sara Caples The New Mix: Culturally Dynamic Architecture Wiley |
We are at a new moment in architecture, one when many cultures are contributing to the unfolding of modernism. This enriching influence is broadening the mix, extending the range available to architecture, of materials and colours, of evocative forms, of cultural referencand of social thinking.
In an era of boredom with monocultures and orthodoxies, there is the almost universal expectation that the metroculture, be it in London or Beijing, will provide broadened cultural experiences in food, performance, dress and sound. The new ethnically diverse city is a place of zesty daily encounters/collisions/cohabitation between cultures, a place of mixed signals, contradictions, delightful confusions. Franco-Japanese cuisine, elite schoolchildren wearing doo-rags, jazz performed on gamelansno matter what one's mother culture - we're all getting addicted to varied rhythms, different emotional emphases, other' ideas of beauty.
This change is visible in schools of architecture, at least in the range of students, typically from many ethnicities, none of them constituting a majority. No wonder, then, that there is increased interest in ways that architecture can incorporate a larger compass of riches.
A rising group of practitioners is meeting the challenge of this broadening cultural landscape in pursuing strategies of quick switching, layering, reframing. These new architectural expressions of multiple cultures represent an enrichment that ultimately might help create a more robust modernism, helping to rescue it from a potato blight' of too much sameness.

|9780300089288 Cooper Mondrian Yale University Press |
Just before World War II, Piet Mondrian fled from Paris to London and later to New York, where he lived until his death in 1944. Upon his arrival in Manhattan,
the artist began reworking seventeen of the paintings be brought with him, many of which had already been finished and exhibited. He changed lines and added blocks and bars of
color to give them what he called "more boogie-woogie".
In this groundbreaking book, Harry Cooper, an authority on Mondrian's art, and Ron Spronk, an expert on the
technical examination of paintings, investigate the artist's so-called transatlantic paintings and his unusual working method during this period. Their collaboration offers an intimate look
into the studio of one of the greatest modern artists and establishes a new model for the integration of art history, theory, and technical analysis. The book begins with two essays by
Cooper that discuss the critical reception of Mondrian's work, the place o
the transatlantic paintings in the evolution of his art, and the particular significance of their dates and titles.
Spronk's essay presents technical discoveries based on the
author's original research, reproducing and interpreting many new X-radiographs, photomicrographs, and photographs taken under ultraviolet and infrared light. The catalogue features
such major paintings as Place de la Concorde (1938-43) from the Dallas Museum of Art and No. 12 (1936-42) from the National Gallery of Canada.
Each work is discussed in
a comprehensive entry accompanied by a dazzling array of illustrations that take the reader under the surface of the painting to reveal its genesis. This is the catalogue for an exhibition
that opens at the Harvard University Art Museums in April 2001 and then travels to the Dallas Museum of Art.

Diminutive marvels of artistry and fine craftsmanship, portrait miniatures reveal a wealth of information within their small frames. They can tell tales of cultural
history and biography, of people and their passions, of evolving tastes in jewellery, fashion, hairstyles and the decorative arts. Unlike many other genres, miniatures have a tradition, in
which amateurs and professionals have operated in parallel and women artists have flourished as professionals.
This richly illustrated book presents approximately 180 portrait
miniatures, selected from the holdings of the Cincinnati Art Museum, the largest and most diverse collection of its kind in North America. Both American and European miniatures are
included, and the book stresses the continuity of stylistic tradition across the two continents, as well as the vitality of the portrait miniature format through more than four centuries. A
detailed catalogue entry, as well as a concise artist biography, appears for each object.
Essays inspired by the featured miniatures examine various aspects of miniature
painting, of the depiction of costume in miniatures, and of the allied art of hair work. Exhibition schedule: Cincinnati Art Museum, 4 March to 28 May 2006; Columbia M

|9780300099348 Rieder Vasemania-Form and Ornament Yale University Press |
When the ancient sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii were excavated in the eighteenth century, the objects found there renewed artistic interest in classicism.
Neoclassical style and imagery permeated paintings, sculpture, furniture, and decorative arts of the period, and a central element of design in all these art forms was the vase. This
beautiful book is the first to focus on the vase as an artistic and ornamental form in a variety of media.
It presents and discusses about one hundred hidden treasures from The
Metropolitan Museum of Art's reserve collection - not only vases but also wine and water urns, knife boxes, ink wells, perfume burners, fabrics, carved paneling, marquetry furniture,
silver, works on paper, and paintings - all using the vase motif. Vase imagery ranged from austere to fantastic to romantic, say the authors of this book, and the vase became a new
paradigm of artistic achievement and a central symbol of European Neoclassicism.

|9780821373651 Global Econo Global Economic Prospects Eurospan |
"Global Economic Prospects 2008: Technology Diffusion in the Developing World" examines the state of technology in developing countries and the pace
with which it has advanced since the early 1990s.It reveals both encouraging and cautionary trends. On the one hand, the pace of technological progress in developing countries has
been much faster than in high-income countries-reflecting increased exposure to foreign technology as a result of linkages with high-skilled diasporas and the opening of these countries
to international trade and foreign direct investment. On the other hand, the technology gap remains large, and the domestic factors that determine how quickly technologies spread
within developing countries often stymie progress, especially among low-income countries.This year's Global Economic Prospects comes on the heels of an extended period of strong
growth and a 15 year period of strong performance in much of the developing world, which has contributed to substantial declines in global poverty.
While high oil prices and
heightened market volatility may signal a coming pause in this process, over the longer term continued technological progress should continue to push back poverty.

forth between to compare different imaging methods.
The CD also contains two self-testing methods - it will completely change the way students learn neuroanatomy. No
longer bound by the confines of a printed picture or the dry descriptions of a textbook, students will glide through the internal structures of the brain as easily as they drive along a
in road, making this a revolutionary new reference on neuroanatomy. This new version is fully updated to be compatible with Windows Vista and Mac Leopard.

|9780471971931 Michael A. S Geomorphology And Global Tectonics Wiley |
Presents the state of current research on the inter-relationships between global tectonics and macroscale landscape development across a wide range of
topics and study areas. The last 10 years have witnessed a remarkable growth in interest in the relationships between global tectonics and the Earth's maroscale topographic features.
This new research emphasis has emerged from a range of practitioners within the earth sciences, including geophysicists concerned with what can be learnt about tectonic processes
from their topographic effects, geologists interested in the factors controlling erosion and the supply of material to sedimentary basins, and geomorphologists wanting to understand the
role of tectonics in landscape evolution.
Various technical developments and new sources of data have also contributed to these developments, such as the construction of
coupled tectonic surface process numerical models of large-scale landscape development, the creation of large-area, high resolution digital elevation models, and the derivation of
long-term denudational records using methods such as thermochronology. This book presents an overview of innovative research in the area and provides directions for future
research. Each chapter provides up-to-date surveys of key research questions, reports on important current work and highlights outstanding research issues.
It will be
invaluable to those across the earth science community who are interested in the relationships between tectonics and geography.

|9781851492572 Gere & Munn Pre-raphaelite to Arts and Crafts Jewellery Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
Previously published as "Artists' Jewellery - Pre-Raphaelite to Arts and Crafts", this revised edition records the Pre-Raphaelite period of jewellery design. The Pre-Raphaelites formed one of the four great artistic movements between the mid-1880s and the early 1900s. They were characterized by a rebellious outlook, a distaste for convention and an admiration for the early Renaissance. They believed that decoration as an art form was as worthy as painting and sculpture. Jewellery, often as a symbol of love, was a particularly attractive medium for them. Towards the end of the 19th century their ideas were superseded by the Arts and Crafts Movement with a return to simpler, plain designs which incorporated straight lines and little intricate detail. Artists involved include Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, William Holman Hunt, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Charles Voysey.

An extensively illustrated account of the life and work of this renowned and influential illustrative and fine artist Includes the surreal and visionary images that radically altered reader's perceptions of science fiction from the 1950s onwards Foreword by David G. Hartwell Credited with single-handedly revolutionizing the look of science fiction, Richard Powers's moodily imaginative and distinctive style, replete with abstract and Surrealist imagery, defined a coming of age for this literary genre during the Golden Era of paperback science fiction. Starting with his first appearance on Ballantine's paperbacks in the 1950s, his career spanned over four decades in which he produced jacket illustrations for over 1200 sf novels. Now widely regarded as the single most influential artist in the history of paperback illustrative art, Richard Powers is also considered a figure of towering stature in American twentieth-century fine art.

|9783764366742 Riewold O Brandscaping Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Architecture and design are now being used as a marketing tool to communicate brand images; this book looks at the status quo of "Brandscaping". "Brandscaping" - the creation of a three-dimensional microcosm representing the brand - is increasingly becoming a characteristic part in the architecture of retail areas, shopping centres and showrooms. Rising to the challenge from e-commerce and the global competition for customers, companies, project developers, architects and interior architects are reacting with complex concepts that present the brand image, the encounter with the product as an object of desire, as a microcosm, an experience to be perceived through the senses. Using the latest technology and features from the entertainment industry, these real and tangible "brand landscapes" lay value on generating an emotional impact and range from standard shop systems to monumental theme parks. This book presents 15 international projects from the fields of architecture and interior architecture, including: Volkswagen AutoStadt, Wolfsburg; Niketown in London; the City Mall Sevens, Duesseldorf; the shopping centre at Leipzig railway station; the Showroom Qiora New York; the shop concept Superga in Italy; and the Migros supermarket chain in Switzerland. Concluding the volume is a documentation of the discussions that took place between image designers, architects and interior architects during a workshop.
