Lyotard met Jacques Monory in 1972, and the text on him published at that time was the first that Lyotard dedicated to contemporary art since Discourse, Figure. Lyotard's interest in the plastic arts thus fits fully within the setting of his political preoccupations. The artist-protagonist stages the recurring motifs that fascinate Lyotard: the scene of the crime, the revolver, the woman, the victim, glaciers, deserts, stars. The atmosphere of the essays on Monory is "Californian." Monory's imaginary repertoire goes well beyond the masters of modernity and is in line rather with a "modern contemporary surrealism."
Both Lyotard and Monory live the "dilemma of Americanization," the America represented by cinema, fashion, novels, music. It is in this atmosphere that Lyotard and Monory will finally evoke their supreme experience of difference: desire and fear, exultation and a profound malaise. The plastic universe of Monory and the aesthetic meditations of Lyotard are in perfect symbiosis. Sarah Wilson's epilogue thoroughly outlines both the history of a friendship and, at the same time, the intellectual and artistic climate of the 1970s.

Описание: This book is highly recommended for knowledge in the field of adolescent health. This is specially true for a developing country like India where there is widespread poverty and lack of knowledge. Sexual and reproductive health issues are often avoided by youth because of associated stigma attached to it in the society. This book will thus help in unfurling the condition of youths specially girls in India. Girls are poorly placed in terms of status accorded to them in the society. Thus the book tries to highlight the plight of adolescent girls in India who faces an identity crisis in the tender ages of adolescence. In this book married and unmarried adolescents has been taken as two distinct group as it is felt that both groups have separate problems. It is found that adolescents are indeed lacking awareness about sexual and reproductive health in compared to women of other reproductive age groups. Thus it is high time to address their needs and develop sector-wise policies.
