Описание: 'Living Fashion' by Leen Demeester, explains the influence of fashion on the daily life of middle class women in Western Europe between 1750 and 1950. The text focuses mainly on high fashion as women from the middle classes tried to copy these styles as well as they could. The powerful rise of the bourgeoisie in the 19th century provided them with new possibilities and created an accessiblity to a pastime which stimulated the purchase of fashion. Jacoba de Jonge attended law school in Leiden, Netherlands, but gradually her passion for costume history grew and she started with a unique collection of dresses, now containing over 2500 pieces. She worked at the The Hague Kostuummuseum (museum of costume) for a year in 1965 and organised many costume exhibitions afterwards. With the help of historical gowns and accessories, fashion collector Jacoba de Jonge was able to create an image of the relation between the 'fashion ideal' and the actual clothing that women were wearing. Living Fashion looks at the production of fashionable clothing and the subsequent consequences concerning posture and behaviour. The book is then completed by several expert studies on fashion in general. Text in English and Dutch.

Описание: This is the third in a series of Cambodian readers prepared by Franklin Huffman and Im Proum, following their Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader and Intermediate Cambodian Reader. The reader contains thirty-two selections from some of the most important and best-known works of Cambodian literature in a variety of genres - historical prose, folktales, epic poetry, didactic verse, religious literature, the modern novel, poems and songs, and so forth. The introduction is a general survey in English of Cambodian literature, and each section has an introduction in Cambodian. For pedagogical reasons, the selections are presented roughly in reverse chronological order, from modern prose to the very esoteric and somewhat archaic verse of the Ream-Kie (the Cambodian version of the Ramayana). The reader concludes with a bibliography of some sixty items on Cambodian literature.
The glossary combines the 4,000 or so items introduced in this reader with the more than 6,000 introduced in the previous two readers, making it the largest Cambodian-English glossary compiled to date. The definitions are more general and complete than one usually finds in a simple reader glossary, in which definitions are normally context-specific. Because the glossary is so useful in itself, it is being made available separately as well as bound with the reader.

Описание: This book is a sequel to the author's Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader, published by the Yale University Press in 1970. It is intended to develop the student's ability to the point of reading unedited Cambodian texts with the aid of a dictionary. Part One consists of thirty-seven reading selections in Cambodian, graded in length and difficulty, from publications by Cambodia's leading writers and scholars. It includes articles on Cambodian history, culture, and geography; Cambodian folktales; newspaper articles and editorials; and modern Cambodian fiction. Each selection is followed by a list of the vocabulary items not previously introduced, along with their definitions. Part Two consists of a final alphabetical Cambodian-English glossary containing not only the 4000 vocabulary items introduced in this volume, but also the 2000 vocabulary items in the preceding Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader. This comprehensive glossary, besides rendering the book useful independently of the preceding volume, is particularly important in view of the present lack of a satisfactory Cambodian-English dictionary for students to use.

Описание: The Renaissance in Europe: An Anthology The Renaissance, both as a concept and a period, continues to generate lively controversy not only among
academics but also among the general public. Ever since the publication, in 1860, of Jacob Burckhardt's classic study of the Renaissance in Italy, scholars have disputed the origins of
the movement and its subsequent influence on European culture and thought. This sequence of three course texts and two anthologies, published in association with the Open
University, explores the Renaissance from the interdisciplinary perspective of history, literature, drama, religion, the history of art, philosophy, music and political thought.
provides students and general readers with an unprecedentedly thorough analysis of this absorbing stage in the development of Western civilization. In this vigorous and provocative
collection the concept of the Renaissance is interrogated through the work of scholars who have supported or queried Burckhardt's ideas or developed alternative interpretations. The
questions posed concentrate on the themes of the source and dispersal of the Renaissance.
Is there a unified concept of the Renaissance, and is it a cultural phenomenon
or an historical period? How distinctive were the philosophical and artistic developments of the Renaissance, and what factors determined the reception of Renaissance culture in
particular areas and disciplines? To what extent did the Renaissance mediate tradition or notions of authority and to what extent did it transform or challenge them? The Re
der addresses the themes of humanism, structures of authority, and levels of culture among different social orders and between men and women. And it examines what Burckhardt's
'discovery of the individual' really meant for the construction of self in the late medieval and early modern context.
