Описание: "Genesis" is Volume I in the "Anchor Bible" series of new book-by-book translations of the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha. Ephraim Avigdor Speiser
was University Professor and Chairman of the Department of Oriental Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Using authoritative evidence from archaeology, linguistics, and
comparative religion, the author presents some startling conclusions about the first book of the Bible.
He proves, for example, that the famous opening phrase, 'In the
beginning,' is not true to the meaning of the first word, that the designation 'Torah' for the Pent
teuch is a misnomer, that the best-known stories of "Genesis" are grounded in pagan mythology. Speiser is an iconoclast in the tradition of Abraham; he exposes the false in order to
help achieve truth. As he says in his introduction, he 'is not motivated by mere pedantry...but by the hope that each new insight may bring us that much closer to the secret of the Bible's
universal and enduring appeal'.

Описание: Pondering the origins of the world and their own ancestry, African societies often sought to provide answers to these and other perplexing concepts in their oral
traditions, poetry and art. The Bamana people of Mali, for example, attributed the invention of agriculture and their understanding of the earth, animals and plants to a mythical hero
called Chi Wara, shown in sculptural form as a roan antelope. The elegant Chi Wara headdresses were created in wood in male-female pairs and worn during agricultural
This volume examines the Chi Wara headdress as an icon of African sculpture and presents 40 examples of this well-known form. Major artistic traditions in other
African societies - including the Dogon of Mali; the Yoruba of Nigeria; the Bwa, Bobo, Kurumba and Mossi of Burkina Faso; the Kuba and Luba of the Democratic Republic of the
Congo; and the Chokwe of Angola and Zambia - are also discussed in terms of the distinctive cultural perspectives and local traditions that inspired them. The masterworks featured and
analyzed are drawn from public and private collections in the United States.

Описание: Dada began on February 5, 1916, when Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, and others launched the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Cabaret Voltaire would eventually become the stuff of legend, joined by the short-lived but no less significant Gallery Dada. Even as Dada spread throughout Europe and the world, its heart was always in Zurich. This book honors the centennial of Dada by telling for the first time the full story of its genesis and the role played by Zurich and its vibrant community of artists in its creation and flourishing. It sets the early years of Dada firmly in the city s historical and cultural context and reveals the intellectual and social background that were crucial to the fermenting artistic ideas that culminated in Dada. It goes on to trace the explosion of Dada into a worldwide phenomenon that took in such artists and intellectuals as Joan Miro, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Cocteau, and Man Ray. Richly illustrated, this book will stand as the definitive account of the origins of Dada and its little-considered ties to one particular, spectacular city. "
