Описание: The Luxor Temple of Amun-Re, built to commemorate the divine power of the pharaohs, is one of the iconic monuments of New Kingdom Egypt. In the 4th century C.E., the Roman Imperial government, capitalizing on the site's earlier significance, converted the temple into a military camp and constructed a lavishly painted cult chamber dedicated to the four emperors of the Tetrarchy. These frescoes provide fascinating insight into the political landscape of the late Roman Empire and, as the only surviving wall paintings from the tetrarchic period, into the history of Roman art. The culmination of a groundbreaking conservation project, this volume brings together scholars across disciplines for a comprehensive look at the frescoes and their architectural, archaeological, and historical contexts. More than 150 stunning illustrations present the paintings for the first time in their newly conserved state, along with a selection of 19th-century documentary watercolors. This remarkable publication illustrates how physical context, iconography, and style were used to convey ideology throughout Rome's provinces.

Описание: This selection of speeches and articles turned out by the U.S. Ambassador to India from 1963 to 1969 is fresh, informative, and pertinent, documenting as it does the range and intensity of the American government's interest in the problems of a developing country. For all of Chester Bowles' passion for ideas, he anchors his most speculative thinking in solid fact. Both because of his analysis and interpretation and because of the wealth of interesting facts about India, the United States, and the Far East built into every page, this volume contains much of consequence for anyone concerned about the role of the United States in Asia. It also reflects the new India emerging at the moment of the generational change in the leadership which led it to independence. A former Governor and Congressman from Connecticut, as well as an economic administrator under Presidents Roosevelt and Truman, Mr. Bowles first went to India as Ambassador in 1951. John F. Kennedy made him Under Secretary of State in 1961, and then two years later he returned to India where he again served as Ambassador until April 1969. When Kennedy announced the nomination in 1963, he said: "No American has a deeper understanding of India and Asia than Governor Bowles."
