Homosexuality has always existed, but for centuries artists have felt compelled to codify its expression in their work, in essence hiding it from the public eye. In this dazzling and highly original book, Dominique Fernandez takes a close look at artistic works from the past centuries from rites of passage into manhood and representations of the hero, to the pantheon of pagan gods and the image of the lesbian to show how the most powerful representations of homosexuality have emerged from conditions of secrecy and even repression.

|9781904313205 Antoni Gaudi Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Antoni Gaudi is now recognized as one of the masters of modern architecture, with his organic, vinelike forms, sensuous wooden interiors, and brilliantly coloured mosaics expressing a synthesis of international modernism and local Catalan artistic traditions. A builder by instinct and practice, Gaudi's artistic sensibilities were among the most imaginative and baroque of any modern architect. His work is instantly recognizable, in particular his last, uncompleted work, the strange and massive cathedral of the Sagrada Familia, with its sandcastle-like dripping towers. His iconic Casa Batllo (1907), an apartment building resembling a pile of gracefully draped stones hugging a corner of the Paseo de Gracia, has become a symbol of Barcelona. His Guell Park (1915), built originally for an important patron and Catalan industrialist for whom the architect built several other works, has recently been restored and is open to the public. Despite his current renown, critical recognition of his talent and significance came late, as the architecture establishment had difficulty fitting him into the canon of the Modern Movement. Gaudi's was a truly unique oeuvre, and this account of his work examines his work in the context of his life and times. He came of age during a time of rising Catalan nationalism and the flowering of a uniquely Catalan culture that mixed art nouveau with Mediterranean traditions; Barcelona at the turn of the century rivalled Paris as a centre of art, music, literature, and avant-garde publishing. Gaudi absorbed this culture and was a committed nationalist as a young man, but in later life he turned to Catholicism and became deeply religious and ascetic. His eclectic practice mixed forms from the past in a complex experimentation with space, materials, and decoration: this kind of artistic freedom was made possible only by unusual social conditions including Barcelona's economic prosperity at the turn of the century and the existence of highly skilled artisans in Catalonia. This volume analyzes Gaudi's work systematically and in detail, from the Guell Palace to the Guell Park, through to the Sagrada Familia.
|9781851491995 Bird painting Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
This is the second part of a five-volume series. This book presents a representative selection of colour pictures of birds painted during the 18th century. It portrays the artists' increasing sensitivity to nature. A detailed text accompanies the pictures and reveals the growth in the popularity of watercolour as a medium for painting birds. In the 18th century, several artists continued to produce bird paintings in the same style and composition of the Old Masters. When a new sensitivity to nature became universal, naturalists recorded, named and illustrated species with increasing skills. Old myths were replaced by observation and evidence. Exotic birds were being discovered in the newly-explored countries of North America, India and, at the end of the century, Australia. This age of discovery was also a period when the potential of watercolour painting was developed and proved to be the perfect medium for depicting birds. In bird art, as in so many other aspects of 18th century life, this was an age of sense and sensitivity.

The full colour illustrations show boxes with as many diverse forms and uses as possible.

|9780486422640 Kelly Franci A Short History of Costume & Armour: Two Volumes Bound as One Dover |
This remarkable illustrated history presents a comprehensive account of clothing and armour chiefly worn by the English upper classes - from the Norman conquest (1066) to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Meticulously researched and exceptionally detailed, the book focuses on the civilian wear of the upper classes because "... it is their apparel that constantly changes and so most intimately reflects their times." Similarly, the focus on "knightly" armour best illustrates the evolution of defensive attire from the Crusades to the seventeenth century. Accompanying the delightfully written text are more than 300 well-chosen, original illustrations which reveal the smallest details of dress and include every article of clothing - from "sideless" surcoats and mid-leg tunics to full suits of armour and Cavalier cloaks and gowns. Also included are illustrations of such accessories as gloves, belts, corsets, shoes, buckles, and headgear. As noted by the Times Literary Supplement (London), "the selection of contemporary works of art is refreshingly individual, the drawings are lively and exact. Taken all together they make a picture-gallery of the past that will delight the ordinary reader almost as much as it will profit the student." Fashion historians and graphic designers in search of permission-free material will also welcome this concise, detailed review.

|9780521539432 Ed. by Ian S Problems and Methods in the Study of Politics Cambridge Academ |
The study of politics seems endlessly beset by debates about method. At the core of these debates is a single unifying concern: should political scientists view themselverimarily as scientists, developing ever more sophisticated tools and studying only those phenomena to which such tools may fruitfully be applied? Or should they instead try to illuminate the large, complicated, untidy problems thrown up in the world, even if the chance to offer definitive explanations is low? Is there necessarily a tension between these two endeavours? Are some domains of political inquiry more amenable to the building up of reliable, scientific knowledge than others, and if so, how should we deploy our efforts? In this book, some of the world's most prominent students of politics offer original discussions of these pressing questions, eschewing narrow methodological diatribes to explore what political science is and how political scientists should aspire to do their work.

This is a comprehensive overview of 20th-century Russian history that treats the years from 1917 to 2000 as a single period and analyses the peculiar mixture of political, economic and social ingredients that made up the Soviet compound.

Previously published as "A History of Twentieth-Century Russia", the book is brought up to 2002 and features a new introduction. Robert Service shows how, despite recent years of de-communization, the seven decades of Communist rule which penetrated every aspect of life in state, economy and society still continue to influence Russia today as it faces an uncertain future. He discusses continuing economic and social difficulties at the beginning of the 21st century, the military campaign in Chechnya, Russia's reduced role on the world stage and Putin' determination to restore its dignity as a nation.

To some I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. To others I am Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. And there are those who whisper that I am both of these and more. My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, no long distracted by her sadistic pastimes, is now focussing unwaveringly on me. I spend each night with my immortal guards, but still no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something IS happening to me. I appear to have awakened something that's lain dormant for thousands of years and the thing is, I haven't the damndest idea how or why... It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it was there - cool and hard - when I awoke. My guards know this ancient relic well - its disappearance so many ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. And here it is with us now. My touch resonates with its force. A strange, dazzling magic now courses through my half-mortal half-Sidhe body. But while my guards cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it - those who would see the Unseelie court suffer rather than have it ruled over by me, a mongrel queen. My enemies grow in number every day. If only they knew what I am capable of. Come to that, if only I did too... Welcome back to the world of Meredith Gentry, a twilight world of gods, shapeshifters and immortal souls, a world full of sensuality, wild magic, treacherous deceits and the delicious anticipation of latent powers unleashed...

|9780006511854 Stephen Baxt Phase Space HarperCollins UK |
Tied in to Baxter's masterful Manifold trilogy, these thematically linked stories are drawn from the vast graph of possibilities across which the lives of hero Reid Malenfant have been scattered. It is the year 2025. Reid Malenfant is the commander of a NASA earth-orbiting science platform. The platform is intended to probe the planets of the nearest star system by bouncing laser pulses off them. But no echoes are returned...and Malenfant's reality begins to crumble around him. Huddling with his family, awaiting the end -- or an unknown new beginning -- Malenfant tells stories of other possibilities, other realities. The linked stories encompass the myriad possibilities that might govern our relationship with the universe: are we truly alone, or will we eventually meet other lifeforms? Perhaps intelligent species decide to turn their back on the stars, or maybe expansionist species are destined to fail. The final possibility -- that the Universe as we know it is in fact an elaborate illusion designed to protect us from the fearful reality -- is brilliantly explored in the tour de force novella that ends the volume.

Humphrey Carpenter, who wrote the acclaimed biography of J.R.R. Tolkien, draws upon unblished letters and diaries, to which he was given special access, in this engrossing story.

|9780521618960 M. Steven Fi Democracy Derailed in Russia Cambridge Academ |
Why has democracy failed to take root in Russia? After shedding the shackles of Soviet rule, some countries in the postcommunist region undertook lasting democratization. Yet Russia did not. Russia experienced dramatic political breakthroughs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it subsequently failed to maintain progress toward democracy. In this book, M. Steven Fish offers an explanation for the direction of regime change in post-Soviet Russia. Relying on cross-national comparative analysis as well as on in-depth field research in Russia, Fish shows that Russia's failure to democratize has three causes: too much economic reliance on oil, too little economic liberalization, and too weak a national legislature. Fish's explanation challenges others that have attributed Russia's political travails to history, political culture, or to 'shock therapy' in economic policy. The book offers a theoretically original and empirically rigorous explanation for one of the most pressing political problems of our time.

|9780387710402 Jain Anil K. Handbook of Biometrics Springer |
Biometrics is a rapidly evolving field with applications ranging from accessing oneâ€™s computer to gaining entry into a country. The deployment of large-scale biometric systems in both commercial (e.g., grocery stores, Disney World, airports) and government (e.g., IAFIS) applications has served to increase the publicâ€™s awareness of this technology. This rapid growth has clearly highlighted the challenges associated with designing and deploying biometric systems. Indeed, the problem of biometric authentication is a "Grand Challenge" in its own right. The past five years has seen a significant growth in biometric research resulting in the development of innovative sensors, new algorithms, enhanced test methodologies and novel applications.The purpose of the Handbook of Biometrics is to address this void by inviting some of the prominent researchers in Biometrics to author individual chapters describing the fundamentals as well as the latest innovations in their respective areas of expertise.Designed for researchers and advanced-level students in computer science, the Handbook of Biometrics is also suitable for Biometric and Computer Security professionals.

|9780300089820 McPhee Bernini & the Bell Towers Yale University Press |
In 1638, the great artist-architect Gianlorenzo Bernini began one of the most ambitious architectural projects of his career: to design and construct massive twin
bell towers atop St. Peter's basilica at the Vatican. But the project failed spectacularly.
Bernini's reputation was permanently tarnished, and the scandal of the bell towers
sparked a controversy that persists to this day. What happened? Who was responsible? How did events unfold in this dramatic episode of architectural history? This illustrated volume
tells the complete story of the bell towers. Presenting both visual and documentary evidence, Sarah McPhee reconstructs the entire affair, the architectural and political milieu, the
evolution of the designs, and the varying influences of all those involved in the project.
McPhee examines the multiple constraints under which Bernini worked, including the
ambitions of the Pope, the criticisms of rival architects, the financial and political constraints of the building committee, the monumental history of the basilica, and the geology of the site.
She reinterprets Bernini's role as architect and shows convincingly that the failure of the bell tower was not Bernini's own. Instead, it was the failure of the institution of the Vatican,
driven by liturgical and political imperatives, that doomed the project despite the architect's heroic efforts.
|9780300105124 Getsy Body Doubles: Sculpture in Britain, 1877–1905 Yale University Press |
Late nineteenth-century Britain experienced an explosion of interest in sculpture. Sculptors of the "New Sculpture" movement engaged in a wide range of
experimentation, seeking a new direction and a modern idiom for their art. This book analyzes for the first time the art-theoretical concerns of the late-Victorian sculptors, focusing on
their attitudes toward the representation of the human body.
David J. Getsy uncovers a previously unrecognised sophistication in the New Sculpture through close study of
works by key figures in the movement: Frederic Leighton, Alfred Gilbert, Hamo Thorneycroft, Edward Onslow Ford, and James Havard Thomas. These artists sought to activate and
animate the conventional format of the ideal statue so that it would convincingly and compellingly stand in for both a living body and an ideal image.
conventions that had characterised much previous sculpture in Britain, they fervently pursued a commitment to the mimetic rendering of the body in three dimensions. In response to
the problems and perils of such a commitment, late-Victorian sculptors worked to develop strategies that allowed them to accommodate naturalism and symbolism as well as the
materiality of sculpture. Getsy offers an analysis of the conceptual complexity of the New Sculpture and places its concerns within the larger framework of the development of modern

Architect Carol Ross Barney founded her own firm in 1981. Throughout the past 25 years of Ross Barney Jankowski and now Ross Barney Architects, the
office has grown to a 35-person firm that places special emphasis on the process of design. The team involved in that process includes not only the architects and consultants, but very
importantly, the clients.
Her approach, rather unique among architectural offices, relies on input, analysis, and evaluation from many fronts, the development of alternatives,
and a collaborative effort that assures there is no one author, but rather guarantees a final work more than the sum of the parts. This publication examines the evolution of Ross Barney
Architects, and some of its most significant works, from the US Post Office in Glendale Heights, Illinois to the new Oklahoma City Federal Building, along with a discussion of the rigorous
process that each commission goes through from initial ideas to final design.

|9780711227118 Martin Wood John Fowler Frances Lincoln |
John Fowler was an interior decorator who set fashions and changed tastes. The English country house style, which he developed with Sibyl Colefax and Nancy Lancaster, his partners in the firm of Colefax & Fowler, has proved a source of continuing inspiration to decorators and home-owners on both sides of the Atlantic and indeed across the world. Today, a hundred years after his birth, his influence is almost as powerful as it was in the mid 20th century, when he was working on many of Britain's finest and most famous houses, including Uppark, Chequers and Buckingham Palace, as well as dozens of more modest projects. Fowler's style has been so widely imitated that it is easy to forget what an innovator he was. In the 1930s and 1940s his style was a breath of fresh country air, sweeping away heavy velvets and damasks in favour of crisp cotton chintzes, replacing glossy mahogany with painted Regency furnishings, elaborate porcelain and glitzy ormolu with modest pottery and painted tin. Even after the war, when he came to specialize in the decoration of architecturally important interiors, he continued to prefer 'humble elegance' and 'romantic disrepair' to pomposity.

Both have been recently amputated, and the indications are that
the victim was still alive when they were removed. DI Jack Caffery has been newly seconded to the Major Crime Investigation Unit in Bristol. He and Flea soon establish that the hands

Their search for him - and for his abductor - lead them into the darkest recesses of Bristol's underworld, where drug addiction is

|9780470014448 Fitzgerald, Handbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Wiley |
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most prevalent childhood psychiatric disorders of our time. The condition is defined by levels of
inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity that are in impairing and developmentally inappropriate. Increasingly, there is a growing appreciation that for many individuals the disorder may
persist into adulthood and be associated with significant social and economic burden.
Conditions, such as ADHD, that are manifestly heterogeneous in terms of their clinical
presentation, underlying neurobiology and treatment response, must be tackled on multiple fronts. This "Handbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" provides a state of the art
position on each of these fronts from leading clinicians and researchers from around the world. Broad in its scope and comprehensive in its detail, this book should be as useful to th
student as it is to the experienced clinician or researcher.

|9783899550313 Romantik Gestalten |
Romantik presents classical romantic elements in outstanding examples of contemporary illustration, photography and graphic design. While making a clear reference to nineteenth century Romanticism, the book defines a current version of the term through its selections and presentation.
The book features examples, which expand the forms of visual expression available in our computer-dominated world and which develop style elements that exist beyond the canon of forms used in the 1990s. In place of uncluttered surfaces and clean lines, colorful collages and ornaments are used to generate a feeling of warmth, closeness or commitment.
Because the computer is firmly established as a creative tool, today's "Romantik" is pragmatic rather than dogmatic. At the same time, the book challenges the role of the computer in the design process, appealing to the romantic in all of us.

|9780521033107 Prasannan Pa The Transition to a Colonial Economy Cambridge Academ |
According to widespread belief, poverty and low standards of living have been characteristic of India for centuries. Challenging this view, Prasannan Parthasarathi demonstrates that, until the late eighteenth century, labouring groups in South India, those at the bottom of the social order, were in a powerful position, receiving incomes well above subsistence. The decline in their economic fortunes, the author asserts, was a process initiated towards the end of that century, with the rise of colonial rule. Building on revisionist interpretations, he examines the transformation of Indian society and its economy under British rule through the prism of the labouring classes, arguing that their treatment by the early colonial state had no precedent in the pre-colonial past and that poverty and low wages were a product of colonial rule. The book promises to make an important contribution to the economic history of the region, and to the study of colonialism.
|9780521697255 Edited by Ju The Future of Gender Cambridge Academ |
'Gender' is used to classify humans and to explain their behaviour in predominantly social rather than biological terms. But how useful is the concept of gender in social analysis? To what degree does gender relate to sex? How does gender feature in shifts in familial structures and demography? How should gender be conceived in terms of contemporary inequality and injustice, and what is gender's function in the design and pursuit of political objectives? In this volume a collection of international experts from the fields of political philosophy, political theory, sociology, economics, law, psychoanalysis and evolutionary psychology scrutinize the conceptual effectiveness of gender both as a mode of analysis and as a basis for envisioning the transformation of society. Each contributor considers how gender might be conceived in contemporary terms, offering a variety of (often conflicting) interpretations of the concept's usefulness for the future.
|9780521602402 Edward Muir Ritual in Early Modern Europe Cambridge Academ |
The first comprehensive study of rituals in early modern Europe, this new and expanded edition argues that between about 1400 and 1700 a revolution in ritual theory took place that utterly transformed concepts about time, the body, and the presence of spiritual forces in the world. Edward Muir draws on extensive historical research to emphasize the persistence of traditional Christian ritual practices even as educated elites attempted to privilege reason over passion, textual interpretation over ritual action, and moral rectitude over gaining access to supernatural powers. Edward Muir discusses wide ranging themes such as rites of passage, carnivalesque festivity, the rise of manners, Protestant and Catholic Reformations, the alleged anti-Christian rituals of Jews and witches. The new edition examines the impact on the European understanding of ritual from the discoveries of new civilizations in the Americas and missionary efforts in China and adds more material about rituals peculiar to women.

|9780521034005 Edited by Ke Studies in Resource Allocation Processes Cambridge Academ |
One of the central questions of economics relates to the coordination of individual units within a large organization to achieve the central objectives of that organization. This book examines the problems involved in allocating resources in an economic system where decision-making is decentralized into the hands of individuals and individual enterprises. The decisions made by these economic agents must be coordinated because the input decisions of some must eventually equal the output decisions of others. Coordination arises naturally out of the mathematical theory of optimization but there is still the question of how it can be achieved in practice with dispersed knowledge. The essays here explore the many facets of this problem. Nine papers are grouped under the title ‘Economies with a single maximand’. They include papers on static and dynamic optimization, decentralization within firms, and nonconvexities in optimizing problems. Fourteen papers are concerned with ‘Economies with multiple objectives’. Among the topics covered here are stability of competitive equilibrium, stability in oligopology, and dynamic shortages. The final part of the book includes three papers on informational efficiency and informationally decentralized systems.

|9780521032841 Edited by Ed The Underground Economies Cambridge Academ |
The most disturbing aspects of the growth of underground economies are the interrelated problems of unreported and unrecorded income. A large and growing underground economy can thwart fiscal efforts to establish budget balance and may significantly undermine the veracity of a nation’s economic information system. The notion that economic information is itself endogenous raises the possibility that at least part of the economic malaise observed in most Western nations during the past two decades is essentially the result of a statistical illusion. The essays in this volume examine the problems of defining, measuring and understanding the implications of the underground economies that have emerged in many of the world’s developed nations. Empirical chapters examine the conceptual problems of how to measure a phenomenon that attempts to defy detection. Alternative measurement procedures are evaluated. Specific studies are included for the United States, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Norway, Canada, France, the Soviet Union and Hungary.

|9789812568021 Berry Lecture notes in data mining World Scientific Publishing |
The continual explosion of information technology and the need for better data collection and management methods has made data mining an even more relevant topic of study. Books on data mining tend to be either broad and introductory or focus on some very specific technical aspect of the field.This book is a series of seventeen edited "student-authored lectures" which explore in depth the core of data mining (classification, clustering and association rules) by offering overviews that include both analysis and insight.The initial chapters lay a framework of data mining techniques by explaining some of the basics such as applications of Bayes Theorem, similarity measures, and decision trees. Before focusing on the pillars of classification, clustering and association rules, the book also considers alternative candidates such as point estimation and genetic algorithms.The book's discussion of classification includes an introduction to decision tree algorithms, rule-based algorithms (a popular alternative to decision trees) and distance-based algorithms. Five of the lecture-chapters are devoted to the concept of clustering or unsupervised classification. The functionality of hierarchical and partitional clustering algorithms is also covered as well as the efficient and scalable clustering algorithms used in large databases. The concept of association rules in terms of basic algorithms, parallel and distributive algorithms and advanced measures that help determine the value of association rules are discussed. The final chapter discusses algorithms for spatial data mining.

|9781847205940 Orhangazi Financialization and the Us Economy Edward Elgar Publishers |
Profound transformations have taken place both in the US and the global economy, most especially in the realm of finance. Financial markets and transactions
have been growing continuously in size and in importance while finance in general has acquired an increasingly prominent position in the economy. Ozgur Orhangazi brings together a
comprehensive analysis of financialization in the US economy that encompasses historical, theoretical, and empirical sides of the issues.
He explores the origins and
consequences of the dramatic rise of financial markets in the US economy and focuses on the impacts of this process of 'financialization' on the operations of the non-financial
corporate sector.The book starts with a brief review of what financialization means and then documents the facts about financialization before moving on to provide a historical
perspective on the evolution of financialization and its proximate causes. Next, the book compares various theoretical and empirical perspectives in an attempt to clarify the limits of our
knowledge and outline what we know about the phenomenon and what we do not. In the second part, the author further explores the relationship between the financial and
nonfinancial sectors of the economy and focuses on the effects of financialization on capital accumulation.The author provides a framework for analyzing the relationship between
financialization and capital accumulation and offers evidence that the increase in nonfinancial corporations' (NFCs) financial investment rates and payments to financial markets have
had negative effects on the real investment rates of NFCs.
Scholars and students working on the issues of financialization or interested in financial markets, investment, and
capital accumulation will find this a valuable addition to their collection, as will the serious general rea
er who wants to learn more about the causes and effects of the transformation of financial markets.

The Spanish designer and artist Jaime Hayon is a rising star in the international creative scene. It s safe to say that he will be one of the most influential designers in the years to come. Hayon embodies a new type of creative Renaissance man, who thanks to his interdisciplinary approach and extraordinary talent can realize his unique stylistic language across various areas and media. Whether he is creating interior design, furniture, illustration, tableware or decorative vases and ceramics, Hayon s signature style always shines through. Seemingly without effort, his designs coherently bring together diametrical opposites such as opulence and practicality, sensuality and precision as well as finesse and restraint. This first monograph about Jaime Hayon presents the full spectrum of his work. The book features projects such as his extensive ceramic installation for Bisazza in Milan and the interior design for La Terraza del Casino, an exclusive restaurant in central Madrid, as well as designer toys and furniture, including his award-winning bathroom collection, AQHayon. Ranging from clear and harmonious to playfully extravagant, all of the examples attest to his inimitable grasp of form, style and colour. In addition to his impressive body of work, which also includes his collaborations with international clients such as Camper, Swarovski and Lladro, the book contains previously unreleased personal sketches, illustrations and productions of new projects that will make its world premiere debut at the annual Milan Furniture Fair in April 2008. Documented by the photographer Nienke Klunder, these previously unpublished works have been exclusively created for Jaime Hayon Works and show facets of Hayon s talent that are revealed here for the first time.

|9780099287674 Ackroyd Pete Poe Random House |
Edgar Allan Poe served as a soldier and began his literary career composing verses modelled on Byron; soon he was trying out his 'prose-tales' - often horror
melodramas such as "The Fall of the House of Usher". As editor of the "Literary Messenger" he was influential among critics and writers of the American South. His versatile writings -
including, for example, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" and "The Raven" - continue to resonate down the centuries.
Peter Ackroyd's biography of Poe opens with his end,
his final days - no one knows what happened between the time when friends saw him off on the steam-boat to Baltimore and his discovery six days later dying in a tavern. This mystery
sets the scene for a short life packed with drama and tragedy (drink and poverty) combined with extraordinary brilliance.Poe has been claimed as the forerunner of modern fantasy, and
credited with the invention of psychological dramas (long before Freud), science fiction (before H.G. Wells and Jules Verne) and the detective story (before Arthur Conan
Tennyson described him as 'the most original genius that America has produced'. He influenced European romanticism and was the harbinger of both Symbolism and
Surrealism. Peter Ackroyd, who places significance on Poe's childhood (his travelling actor parents were miserably poor, his mother had TB and he was orphaned), claims that Poe
found his family among writers - writers not only of his time but of the future generations who were influenced by the power of his imagination.

|9780007266357 Fry Stephen Stephen fry in america HarperCollins UK |
Britain's best-loved comic genius Stephen Fry turns his celebrated wit and insight to unearthing the real America as he travels across the continent in his black
taxicab. Stephen's account of his adventures is filled with his unique humour, insight and warmth in the fascinating book that orginally accompanied his journey for the BBC1 series.
'Stephen Fry is a treasure of the British Empire.' - The Guardian Stephen Fry has always loved America, in fact he came very close to being born there.
Here, his fascination
for the country and its people sees him embarking on an epic journey across America, visiting each of its 50 states to discover how such a huge diversity of people, cultures, languages,
beliefs and landscapes combine to create such a remarkable nation. Starting on the eastern seaboard, Stephen zig-zags across the country in his London taxicab, talking to its
hospitable citizens, listening to its music, visiting its landmarks, viewing small-town life and America's breath-taking landscapes - following wherever his curiosity leads him. Stephen
meets a collection of remarkable individuals - American icons and unsung local heroes alike.
Stephen starts his epic journey on the east coast and zig-zags across America,
stopping in every state from Maine to Hawaii. En route he discovers the South Side of Chicago with blues legend Buddy Guy, catches up with Morgan Freeman in Mississippi, strides
around with Ted Turner on his Montana ranch, marches with Zulus in New Orleans' Mardi Gras, and drums with the Sioux Nation in South Dakota; joins a Georgia family for
thanksgiving, 'picks' with Bluegrass hillbillies, and finds himself in a Tennessee garden full of dead bodies. Whether in a club for failed gangsters (yes, those are real b
llet holes) or celebrating Halloween in Salem (is there anywhere better?), Stephen is welcomed by the people of America - mayors, sheriffs, newspaper editors, park rangers, teachers
and hobos, bringing to life the oddities and splendours of each locale.
A celebration of the magnificent and the eccentric, the beautiful and the strange, Stephen Fry in
America is our author's homage to this extraordinary country.

|9780521613101 Dennell The Palaeolithic Settlement of Asia Cambridge Academ |
This book provides the first analysis and synthesis of the evidence of the earliest inhabitants of Asia before the appearance of modern humans 100,000 years ago. Asia has received far less attention than Africa and Europe in the search for human origins, but is no longer considered of marginal importance. Indeed, a global understanding of human origins cannot be properly understood without a detailed consideration of the largest continent. In this study, Robin Dennell examines a variety of sources, including the archaeological evidence, the fossil hominin record, and the environmental and climatic background from Southwest, Central, South, and Southeast Asia, as well as China. He presents an authoritative and comprehensive framework for investigations of Asia’s oldest societies, challenges many long-standing assumptions about its earliest inhabitants, and places Asia centrally in the discussions of human evolution in the past two million years.

The urban analyses emerging from the large-scale study, "Basel, a City in the Making?", form a focal point in the volume, as do the master plans for the university campus at Dijon and the town sector of Sils Cuncas in the upper Engadine.

|9783764358839 Narula New Cytokines as Potential Drugs Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Over the past ten years, a number of cytokines and growth factors have proven to be as effective therapeutics. While these products have certainly established recombinant biologics as a major pharmaceutical growth sector, the continued interest in this class of drugs arises from the fact that today we have a far better understanding of the human immune response, both at a cellular and molecular level. This has resulted in a more methodical characterisation of these factors which has given clinical researchers an opportunity to plan Phase 1 clinical trials that can provide substantial information on the activity of the cytokine in humans. Currently, a great deal of effort is also being channelled into identifying cytokines from the various DNA databases. Our major objective for this book is to profile cytokines that have been recently identified. The therapeutic potential of these cytokines based on their known properties will be discussed by the authors. The main aim of this book is to provide...

|9780500510605 The Tastemakers: u.k. Art Now Thames & Hudson |
In this irreverent, gossipy, questioning and amazingly well-informed inside story, BBC Arts Correspondent, Rosie Millard, identifies The Tastemakers, the cultural movers and shakers - artists, dealers, curators, art teachers, entrepreneurs - who have made visual art the culture of choice in Britain today. Over a hundred of these people speak to her frankly about how they pulled off the impossible trick of effectively changing taste. They range from Gavin Turk and Mark Wallinger to Nick Serota, Michael Craig-Martin and Jay Jopling, and from the head of Selfridges to the inventor of 'Changing Rooms', revealing the impact of the visual arts revolution on a much wider stage. This network of links and influences is itself given creative expression in artist Adam Dant's foldout, The Mystery of British Culture, while the participants are photographed making art, or making waves - sometimes both - by Geraint Lewis.
|9780789207081 Douglas Curr In Advance of the Landing Abbeville Press |
Since it was first published in 1985, Douglas Curran's photographic exploration of the strange world of UFO "true believers" has established itself as a classic work not only within the New Age/UFO community, but among sociologists, psychologists, and in the art and photography communities. This new edition, with an expanded text revisiting the Roswell, New Mexico, incident of 1947, brings back this essential work in a handsome new edition. As Tom Wolfe explains in his foreword: "Douglas Curran is not only a photographer but also a reporter, and an extremely gifted one. I am tempted to suggest that he also qualifies as an anthropologist, but I think I will leave it at 'reporter.' To be a reporter of Douglas Curran's caliber is a lofty enough achievement. He has discovered an exotic world, and for eight years he has traveled remote terrains throughout the United States and Canada exploring it. This book is the culmination of a quest that, by terrestrial standards, is as extraordinary as that of the people he brings to life." In the course of that long quest, Curran recorded-in sympathetic words and perceptive photographs-the ideas and experiences of individuals whose obsession with outer space inspired them to create elaborate homemade spaceships and even more elaborate belief systems. Now updated with several new photographs and an expanded text-and more relevant than ever, given the popularity of The X-Files and other investigations of alien life-In Advance of the Landing remains the definitive probe of a singularly fascinating subculture.

|9781853262791 Sterne Sentimental Journey Wordsworth |
Celebrated in its own day as the progenitor of "a school of sentimental writers", "A Sentimental Journey" (1768) has outlasted its many imitators because of the humour and mischievous eroticism within. Setting out to journey to France and Italy, Mr Yorick gets little further than Lyons but finds much to appreciate, in contrast to contemporary travel writers whom Sterne satirizes in the figures of Smelfungus and Mundungus. A master of ambiguity and double entendre, Sterne is nevertheless as concerned as his peers with exploring the nature of virtue; unlike other writers of sentimental fiction Sterne insists on the inseparability of desire and feeling. This new edition includes a selection from "The Sermons of Mr Yorick", which shed light on the concerns of the "Journey", "The Journal to Eliza", which records Sterne's feelings as he languishes for the company of Eliza Draper, and "A Political Romance", the satire on a local ecclesiastical squabble that was the catalyst for Sterne's literary career.

China has the longest and most highly developed ceramic tradition in the world, encompassing early Neolithic earthenwares, the finely glazed stoneware pieces of the Song period, and the years of Imperial patronage and export ware for the new markets of the West. Most studies of Chinese art deal with types, period or styles, but this historical examination of Chinese ceramics, which uses recent research, explains how the evolution of pottery depended upon the technological developments of the Chinese culture. The book's practical approach makes full use of archaeological reports to show how differing geographical areas, materials and developing technology all shaped the evolution of Chinese ceramics.

|9780141391090 Cross r Battle of kursk Penguin Books Ltd |
Citadel was the codename for the German attack on Kursk in 1943, and it was the last major German offensive to be launched in the east in an attempt to regain impetus after the battle of Stalingrad. However, the advantage had swung towards the Soviet forces and they never let it go. Following the Battle of Kursk, they not only seized the strategic initiative but also established an inexorably growing momentum which culminated in the fall of Berlin nearly two years later. The German thrusts were contained within tatalizing grasp of success, after which the Red Army delivered a series of crushing counterblows which drove the Wermacht back beyond the Dneiper. Hitler had gambled all on a single throw and had lost. Kursk was the greatest clash of armoured forces in history, and the decisive land battle of World War II. This title examines what happened in Operation Citadel.

It's winter in Paradise, a small town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula on the frozen borders of Canada. After ploughing the new snow from his drive every morning, Alex McKnight is content to stay warm in front of the fireplace at the Glasgow Inn with a bottle of his favourite Canadian beer.

So when a young native American woman of the Ojibwa tribe comes to him for help, Alex is reluctant to become involved. Nor does he want anything to do with goofy Leon Prudell who wants to get back in the PI business and has fixed on Alex as his partner. But before you can say 'storm warning' events have spun out of Alex's control. Soon he'll have to deal with an entire team of drug-crazed hockey goons, two mysterious men wearing guns and hunting caps, and a cold-blooded killer from the other side of the world. Perhaps Alex needs that new partner after all ...

|9780821228104 Flor Garduno: Inner Light Daedalus |
Sensual and symbolic female nudes and still lives form this collection of reproduced tritone images by Mexican photographer Flor Garduno. In contrast to Garduno's first three books, which were essentially diaries of her travels throughout the Americas, this is a diary of her personal, interior landscape. The images were all taken in and around her homes in Mexico and Switzerland. Always using natural light, she has created a series of photographs that bring a magical lyricism to black-and-white photography. An introduction by Veronica Volkow, the Mexican poet, plays up the metaphoric qualities in Garduno's images, exploring the resonance of the word "flower", in Flor's name and in her sensual imagery.
