Описание: While illustration was an essential element in promoting fashion in the first half of the twentieth century, photography has been the medium of choice since the 1970s. So when Dior approached Swedish illustrator Mats Gustafson in 2012 to portray its collections, it was a return to the elegance of fashion s earliest mode of expression. Dior by Mats Gustafson presents this inspired collaboration for the very first time. Infused with a sophisticated charm, Gustafson s vibrant watercolours and collages thoroughly capture Dior s glamorous world, including its haute couture masterpieces, recent contemporary ready-to-wear creations, and celebrated accessories while echoing the same sense of chic that the house has cultivated for seventy years. A must-have for aspiring illustrators, artists, and fashion aficionados alike, this magnificent tome is, above all, an illustrated ode to the enduring allure of Dior.
A Foreign Affairs Best Book of the Year on Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union
The Russian oil industry--which vies with Saudi Arabia as the world's largest producer and exporter of oil, providing nearly 12 percent of the global supply--is facing mounting problems that could send shock waves through the Russian economy and worldwide. Wheel of Fortune provides an authoritative account of this vital industry from the last years of communism to its uncertain future. Tracking the interdependence among Russia's oil industry, politics, and economy, Thane Gustafson shows how the stakes extend beyond international energy security to include the potential threat of a destabilized Russia.
"Few have studied the Russian oil and gas industry longer or with a broader political perspective than Gustafson. The result is this superb book, which is not merely a fascinating, subtle history of the industry since the Soviet Union's collapse but also the single most revealing work on Russian politics and economics published in the last several years." --Robert Legvold, Foreign Affairs
"The history of Russia's oil industry since the collapse of communism is the history of the country itself. There can be few better guides to this terrain than Thane Gustafson." --Neil Buckley, Financial Times

Although the Soviet Union has the most abundant energy reserves of any country, energy policy has been the single most disruptive factor in its industry since the mid-1970s. This major case study treats the paradox of the energy crisis as an essential part of larger economic problems of the Soviet Union and as a key issue in determining the fate of the Gorbachev reforms.

The nude body may still be the most dangerous image in western culture. Decades after the sexual revolution, society's discomfort with the human form is alive and well, as it develops new versions of the same puritanical or infantile responses that have always sought to censor or stigmatize it. The nude self may no longer be XXX, but it's certainly NSFW; we may have stopped draping classical statues, but we are desperate to contain our gender identities to two hyper-minimal pictograms for bathroom options. Arguably, this repudiation of human sexuality shares a root with society's other bodily horror: our collective fear and shame over sickness, deterioration and death. We have come to see our genitals as sites of weakness, just as we have our eventual decay: both must be covered, hidden, left unspoken, treated as a source of humiliation.
