Описание: This book offers the first detailed look at Braque's experiments with still lives and interiors during this significant time in his career. One of the leading founders of Cubism, Braque employed the genre of the still life to conduct a lifelong investigation into the nature of perception through the tactile and transitory world of everyday objects. Examining a transitional time between Braque's early Cubist works and his late grand series, this catalog considers his paintings within the cultural and political context of Europe during World War II. Reproduced in vivid color, Braque's paintings are accompanied by scholarly essays that explore the rise of Braque's popularity in the US, including his first major retrospective in America and the reception of his work of the early 1930s and 1940s by German and French critics. This volume also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the materials and process employed by the artist as illuminated by an intensive conservation study of select important works.
Описание: The Japanese immigrants who arrived in the North American West in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries included individuals with historical ties to Japan`s outcaste communities. This title examines the history of these immigrants in the United States and Canada and their encounters with two separate cultures of exclusion.
Описание: Here is a unique, revealing, one-of-a-kind book about many of the personalities, pilot, and aircraft involved in major transcontinental races across the United States from 1928-1970. Cross-country unlimited class events-including non-stop air derbies of the late 1920s, the famous Bendix Trophy Races of the 1930s and 1940s, and modern Reno Harolds Club Trophy to 1970-produced some of the most exciting and heartbreaking tournaments on record. Written by the co-author of Mustang: The Racing Thoroughbred, this companion volume is an extensive history and assessment of many factors involved in the isolated, lonely environment of long distance air racing. Although the history is seasoned with technical lore-the history of aviation weather forecasting and wireless radio transmission, major engine manufacturing, detailed histories of the Marcoux-Bromberg r-3, and the Granville Brothers Gee Bee-the human element is by no means neglected. The trials, ordeals and mishaps of many famous pilots include Jimmy Doolittle, Art Grobel, Benny Howard, Earl Ortman, Joe Debona, Charley Tucker, Ed Lunken, and Mike Carroll, and are remembered in context with the planes they flew.

Описание: Concerned with people called variously: eta, burakumin, buraku jumin, buraku people, outcastes, or "the lowest of the low," this book examines how their experience of caste/status-based discrimination in 19th century Japan affected their experience of race-based discrimination in the West of the US and Canada in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Описание: China in the 1910s and 1920s was dominated by a succession of military strongmen who fought with each other for the control of the country. Weak central government meant that provincial governors or Warlords and their personal armies were left to fight over the country. The wars that resulted cost millions of civilian deaths and the death of hundreds of thousands of ordinary soldiers. In total a staggering 500 wars were fought over a seventeen year period from 1911 to 1928 starting with the fall of the Qing Dynasty and ending with the victory of the Nationalists in 1928. Some of these conflicts involved a few hundred men on each side, while the larger wars involved up to one million men with tanks, armoured trains, and aircraft. This book will, for the first time, show in detail the history of the Armies of Warlord China featuring over 600 rare photographs and illustrations. The book also includes colour sections on the uniforms, aircraft and awards and medals of the Chinese Warlord Armies.

Описание: Eugen Fink was Edmund Husserl's research assistant during the last decade of the renowned phenomenologist's life, a period in which Husserl's philosophical ideas were radically recast. In this landmark book, Ronald Bruzina shows that Fink was actually a collaborator with Husserl, contributing indispensable elements to their common enterprise. Drawing on hundreds of hitherto unknown notes and drafts by Fink, Bruzina highlights the scope and depth of his theories and critiques. He places these philosophical formulations in their historical setting, organizes them around such key themes as the world, time, life, and the concept and methodological place of the "meontic," and demonstrates that they were a pivotal impetus for the renewing of "regress to the origins" in transcendental-constitutive phenomenology.
