This comprehensive work considers and presents the arts of Africa as art history, rather than as expressions of anthropological and societical impulses and traditions. The book's aim is to animate the study of African art, showing how it has continuously developed from evolving beliefs and traditions, complex cultural interactions, historical and economic realities and gifted individuals. Every corner of the continent, including Egypt, is explored from pre-history to present day, with equal treatment given to all the arts. The Islamic influence and the Christian arts of Ethiopia and Nubia are examined, as are tourist arts and arts that have risen from interaction with Europe. Contemporary art forms are also explored, including the art of the African diaspora.

|9781857592733 Black Paintings of Goya ACC-distribution titles |
The Spanish master-painter Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) is revered not only for the delicate and sensitive treatment of his subjects but also for his radical political stance and modern sensibility which make his paintings seem ahead of their time. Towards the end of his life, embittered by the appalling cruelty of the Napoleonic wars in Spain, Goya decorated the walls of his house outside Madrid with a series of 14 terrifying murals that depicted the underbelly of life and the remorselessness of human existence. Known as the Black Paintings, this series of mural is recognised as one of Goya's greatest masterpieces and now hangs in the Prado. Fully illustrated in vivid detail, this is the only book on the Black Paintings currently in print in the English language. A controversial narrative gives new interpretations of the artist's intention behind te grotesque works and shows how this period of Goya's work anticipated Surrealism and other aspects of twentieth century artistic vision.

|9780632056248 Gibney Intr. To Human Nutrition Wiley |
The primary purpose of this text is to provide the student in the early part of the nutrition course with the basic elements of the science of human nutrition. Its aim is to establish the building blocks for the students as they progress through the latter and more advanced phases of their course. The editorial committee gave much consideration as to whether this book was needed and whether students could be directed to a series of existing introductory texts to achieve the same end. However it was agreed that for completeness, for ensuring proper cross-referencing and to establish a common teaching philosophy across all texts, that on balance this introductory text should be included. Some students may pursue courses which embrace the contents of this text and opt not to include nutrition in their further studies. Equally, students of subjects of nursing or other such subjects may wish to use this text to meet the needs of their course.

|9780195172287 Wallace The New Sjogren s Syndrome Handbook Oxford Academ |
Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that causes dryness of the eyes, mouth, nose, and other mucus membranes, and afflicts over half a million people in the UK and nearly 4 million Americans. While it is usually a mild process for which most patients use only symptomatic therapy, several hundred thousand people with Sjogren's also have rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, or scleroderma. Another equally large group also has a condition know as primary Sjogren's whereby constitutional symptoms (e.g. swollen glands, fatigue, fevers, weight loss), organ manifestations (e.g. heart, lung, kidney, liver), or even lymphoma may occur. The new Sjogren's Syndrome Handbook is a comprehensive and authoritative guide, produced by the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation and its medical advisors. It is an extensive revision of the previous edition, published in 1998. This revised and expanded edition will provide readers with the best medical and praccal information on this disorder. While there is no cure for Sjogren's, much can be done to alleviate the suffering of individuals with this syndrome. This extensively revised handbook offers everything patients need to know to cope with this disease. It distils current information known about this difficult condition into an easily readable and understandable compendium that elucidates the major clinical aspects of the syndrome. It is loaded with practical tips and advice to those seeking information about Sjogren's syndrome. And because Sjogren's is greatly under diagnosed, this handbook is a particularly valuable resource for all healthcare professionals.

|9780804750721 Hanley, Anne Native Capital Eurospan |
This book studies the development of banks and stock and bond exchanges in Sao Paulo, Brazil, during an era of rapid economic diversification. It assesses the contribution of these financial institutions to that diversification, and argues that they played an important role in Sao Paulo's urbanization and industrialization by the start of the twentieth century. It finds that government regulatory policy was important in limiting and shaping the activities of these institutions, but that pro-development policies did not always have their intended effects. This is the first book on Sao Paulo's famous industrialization to identify the strong relationship between financial institutions and Sao Paulo's economic modernization at the turn of the century. It is unique in Brazilian economic history, but contributes to a body of literature on financial systems and economic charge in other parts of the world.

|9781851494828 Ferdinand Preiss: Art Deco Sculptor Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
Johann Philipp Ferdinand Preiss (1882-1943) was the most prolific sculptor of the Art Deco period in Germany; he combined ivory, bronze, onyx and marble to create the most dazzling sculptures of his day. Preiss entered into an apprenticeship with his uncle, a master ivory carver, at the age of sixteen, following the death of his parents. He went on to become the most important Art Deco sculptor in Germany and, indeed one of the most accomplished in the whole of Europe, during the Nazi period. This book, the only work devoted entirely to this subject, follows the development of ivory carving in Erbach, Germany, focusing on the life and work of one of the country's most talented and prodigious sons. The political climate which Preiss and other artists were forced to endure during this time, its difficulties, constraints and influences on their work, is also explored. Extensive research into Nazi archives, interviews with family members, recently unearthed documents and the most comprehensive collection of sumptuous colour illustrations, truly enable the extraordinary talents of this formidable artist to shine.

|9780007224517 Osamu Tezuka Kapilavastu HarperCollins UK |
The first book in the classic eight volume graphic novel series from the godfather of the genre - an irreverent and humourous rendition of the life and times of Buddha. In book one, "Kapilavastu", Chapra, an ambitious slave, spurns the caste system into which he was born, and tries to become a nobleman. Tatta, the wild pariah child, communes with animals, and the monk, Naradatta, strives to uncover the meaning of strange portents surrounding the Buddha's birth. Originated in the 1970s, "Buddha" is Osamu Tezuka's unparalleled rendition of the life and times of Prince Siddhartha. Tezuka's storytelling genius and consummate skill at visual expression blossom fully as he contextualizes the Buddha's ideas; with an emphasis on action, emotion, humour and conflict as Prince Siddhartha runs away from home, travels across India and questions Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. Rather than recommend resignation and impassivity, Tezuka's "Buddha" predicates enlightenment upon recognizing the interconnectedness of life, having compassion for the suffering, and ordering one's life sensibly, his approach is slightly irreverent in that it incorporates something that Western commentators often eschew, namely, humour.

From the bestelling author of 'e' comes a hilarious and moving novel of a very normal life becoming extraordinary Murray's living life to the full -- and it might just kill him.

He's also taking drugs and -- God help him -- he's started dancing. Badly. To trance. And now he's on the run with a human version of Muttley and a teenage girl called Fish. Which is strange, because a few weeks ago Murray didn't even burn the candle at one end. But when his doctors tell him he has only months to live, he gives his boring old self the boot, relaunches a new, improved Murray and falls in love with a passion he didn't know was in him. His old self, of course, would tell him he's digging his own grave. But he'll be needing one of those soon enough anyway, won't he?

When Princess Anja fails to appear at her betrothal banquet, the tiny, peaceful kingdom of Sessalie is plunged into intrigue. Two warriors are charged with recovering the distraught king's beloved daughter. Taskin, Commander of the Royal Guard, whose icy competence and impressive life-term as the Crown's right-hand man command the kingdom's deep-seated respect; and Mykkael, the rough-hewn newcomer who has won the post of Captain of the Garrison - a scarred veteran with a deadly record of field warfare, whose 'interesting' background and foreign breeding are held in contempt by court society. As the princess's trail vanishes outside the citadel's gates, anxiety and tension escalate. Mykkael's investigations lead him to a radical explanation for the mystery, but he finds himself under suspicion from the court factions. Will Commander Taskin's famous fair-mindedness be enough to unravel the truth behind the garrison captain's dramatic theory: that the resourceful, high-spirited princess was not taken by force, but fled the palace to escape a demonic evil?

At the dawn of the nineteenth century, two very different magicians emerge to change England's history. In the year 1806, with the Napoleonic Wars raging on land and sea, most people believe magic to be long dead in England-until the reclusive Mr Norrell reveals his powers, and becomes a celebrity overnight.
Soon, another practicing magician comes forth: the young, handsome, and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's student, and they join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, straining his partnership with Norrell, and putting at risk everything else he holds dear.

|9780387307138 Stets Handbook of the Sociology of Emotions Springer |
For almost thirty years, sociologists have increasingly theorized about and conducted research on human emotions. Surprisingly, it was not until the 1970s that the sociology of emotions emerged as a coherent field of inquiry. What makes this late date surprising is that it is now obvious that human behavior, interaction, and organization are driven by emotions. It was an immense oversight for emotions to be de-emphasized in sociological theorizing and research for most of its 175 year history. Since the 1970s, however, the study of emotions has accelerated and is now at the forefront of sociological analysis. This book is designed to bring the reader up to date on the theory and research traditions that have proliferated in the analysis of human emotions. Key figures who have carried the sociology of emotions to its current level of prominence review their own work and the work of others who have made contributions to a particular approach to the study of emotions. The outcome is a comprehensive book that serves as a primer on the cutting edge of sociological work in what is obviously a key dynamic in human affairs. The first section of the book addresses the range of emotions and how they can be classified, the neurological underpinnings of emotions, and the effect of gender on emotions. The second section reviews the prominent sociological theories of emotions, including theories emphasizing power and status, rituals, identity and self, psychoanalytic dynamics, exchange, expectation states, and evolution.While there is little integration among these theories, this state of affairs will not last forever. The third section addresses theory and research on specific emotions such as love, jealousy and envy, empathy, sympathy, anger, grief, and the moral emotions. While this list does not exhaust the range of human feeling, they are central emotions that drive human behavior, interaction, and social organization. The last section explores how the study of emotions has added new insight into other subfields within sociology such as the study of the workplace, health, and social movements. These chapters illustrate how the sociology of emotions can provide new research and theory for the large numbers of specialties within sociology.Although no book can completely cover a field, even a relatively new one like the sociology of emotions, this Handbook of the Sociology of Emotions comes close to being comprehensive. The reader will come away with a greater appreciation for how far the sociology of emotions has developed and prospered over the last thirty years.

|9780521805926 Edited by Sa Roman Imperialism and Provincial Art Cambridge Academ |
Roman Imperialism and Provincial Art focuses on the art works created in the provinces of the Roman Empire. Heretofore marginalized, or at best understood in terms of emulations of the symbols, styles, and tastes of metropolitan Rome, provincial art is often portrayed as a poor copy of works created in the imperial capital. In this volume, the contributors address the diversity and complexity of the evidence and also offer fresh interpretations of mosaics, wall-paintings, statues and jewelry in an effort to determine what these art works can tell us about the nature of life under an imperial regime. The broad geographical and chronological coverage allows unique insights into the social and political significance of visual expression across the Roman Empire.

sold, and fifty million more have been sold since his death. Also included in this collection are Tolkien's recordings of excerpts from The Hobbit and The Adventures of Tom Bombadil,

|9780300149272 Hamilton Lichtenstein: Girls Yale University Press |
This publication surveys the seminal group of Girl pain
tings by Roy Lichtenstein. In the Summer of 1961, Lichtenstein embarked on a series of iconic images of women, taken directly from newspaper clippings and the romance comic books
prevalent in post-war America. The anonymity of mass-produced, cheap comics helped him capture specific impressions of real life, while maintaining the necessary degree of aesthetic
distance afforded by what he understood to be the 'high restrictive quality of art'.
The 'Girl' paintings, together with the war images (or 'Boy' paintings), established him as a
major protagonist of the American Pop Art movement. His amalgamation of text and image, high and low culture, and his strategy to involve appropriated images, continues to be a rich
source of inspiration for subsequent generations of artists, from Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, and Raymond Pettibon to John Currin and Elizabeth Peyton.A conversation between Jeff
Koons and Dorothy Lichtenstein opens the catalogue. The publication also brings together an exceptional collection of over 130 images of paintings, drawings, sources, and
Included in these images are 22 full-coloured plates of the 'Girl' paintings, 18 of which are featured in the exhibition. The catalogue closes with a
select chronology of Roy Lichtenstein's life, pinpointing important exhibitions and occasions.An artist's book response to the Girl paintings created by Richard Prince is also included as

|9781408700891 Thorne,Tony Jolly Wicked, Actually Little, Brown |
JOLLY WICKED ACTUALLY is a wonderfully entertaining compendium of the hundred words and phrases that have over the last century become the
cornerstones of modern spoken English, and have been used - sometimes deliberately, but often inadvertently - to stake out the common identity that unites the English, to define what
makes us who we are, and thus different from those beastly foreigners who lurk just off our shores. Despite attempts by politicians and writers, despite lessons in citizenship enshrined in
the national curriculum, we have famously never been able to define for posterity precisely what Englishness is. JOLLY WICKED ACTUALLY takes certain well-loved and crucial
expressions such as sorry, nice, common, posh, cuppa, and chippy, explores their strange and wonderful origins, and demonstrates with wit and charm how they are emblems of an era
or an attitude, of a heritage and of the traits and quirks essential to all our notions of Englishness.

|9783764357337 Kapplinger C Hansen + Petersen Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Defying any artistic categorization, the work of the German architects Hansen + Petersen began in the peripheral zones of industrial cities, and show a clear predilection for the methods of industrial production and assembly and a technical-constructive aesthetic, avoiding romanticized ecological architecture or the cost-intensive high-tech styling. This volume discusses their work during the years 1988 and 1997. With their first administrative building, Allopro, in Gelsenkirchen, they set out to prove the viability of a cost-efficient and ecologically-responsible architecture. Among their realized designs are headquarters for high-tech medicine, enterprises such as the glazed info-pavilion of the Emscher-Co-operative in connection with the IBA Emscher Park; supermarkets of a ecologically and constructively-challenging design; solar houses; the apartment and business building at Musikteater im Revier in Gelsenkirchen; and the Ruhr-Lippe administrative building in Dortmund.

Designers can completely alter a concept by changing the format of a page. Today, with so much information being projected through screen in a conventional horizontal format, it is appealing to see shapes that are a bit more unusual and therefore more stimulating. This manual looks at the ways in which contemporary designers are pushing the boundaries in design and in this way are exploring exciting questions such as how to make a book that does not look like a book.

|9780821223925 David Baileys Rock&roll Heroes Grange Books |
David Bailey's photographs have helped to create the face of modern pop. He has trained his camera on most of the pop icons since the 1960s, and this volume brings together more than 80 of his most vivid and indelible images of the pop scene, from his earliest photographs of Mick Jagger, Lennon and McCartney and The Who, to his later portraits of Liam and Noel Gallagher of Oasis. There are pictures of Patti Smith and Bob Dylan, John Lydon and Boy George, Tina Turner and Sting. There is a session from 1985's "Live Aid" showing Bob Geldoff and Queen at a moment of glory, and there are classic heroes too: a grinning Fred Astaire, an offbeat Miles Davis, and a solemn Duke Ellington. Bailey aims to capture the essence and grab the unexpected, confound our expectations, and make us look afresh at faces we thought we knew so well. This large-format book is for all lovers of pop music and for those interested in photography.

Over the last thirty years Victoria Crowe has established herself as a painter of work that is instantly recognisable. This book covers her full range - landscape, still lifes, portraits, self-portraits and interiors - but much of her work defies such precise categorisation. An introduction by an art historian and critic, illustrated by Crowe's most recent paintings, sets her work in context. Then follows a chronological path through her life and work, told in her own highly individual words but punctuated by the voices of critics. It concludes close in time to where it started, thus forming a cyclical link, a theme that runs a constant thread throughout the work itself. There will be an exhibition of Victoria Crowe's work at The Scottish Gallery, 16 Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6HZ from 3rd August to 5th September 2001, and at the Thackeray Gallery, 18 Thackeray Street, Kensington Square, London, W8 from 24th October to 10th November 2001.
