History 1

A powerful account of Jews living in Muslim lands and the surprising truths about their shared history

In Ishmael’s House
Author photo: Mohamed Hussein.

A History of Jews in Muslim Lands Martin Gilbert
The relationship between Jews and Muslims has been a flashpoint that affects stability in the Middle East and has consequences around the globe. In this absorbing and eloquent book Martin Gilbert challenges the standard media portrayal and presents a fascinating account of hope, opportunity, fear and terror that have characterised these two peoples through the 1400 years of their intertwined history.
Sir Martin Gilbert is the author of more than eighty books, including the six-volume authorised biography of Winston Churchill, the twin histories First World War and Second World War, Israel: A History, The Holocaust, A History of the Twentieth Century in three volumes, and nine pioneering historical atlases, including Atlas of Jewish History and Atlas of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. In 1995, he was knighted for services to British history and international relations, and in 2009 was appointed to the British Government’s Iraq War Inquiry.

Harking back to the Biblical story of Ishmael and Isaac, Gilbert takes the reader from the origins of the fraught relationship—the refusal of Medina’s Jews to accept Mohammed as a Prophet—through the ages of the Crusader re-conquest of the Holy Land and the great Muslim sultanates to the present day. He explores the impact of Zionism in the first half of the 20th century, the clash of nationalisms during the Second World War, the mass expulsions and exodus of 800,000 Jews from Muslim lands following the birth of Israel, the Six-Day War and its aftermath and the political sensitivities of the current Middle East. In Ishmael’s House sheds light on a time of prosperity and opportunity for Jews in Muslim lands stretching from Morocco to Afghanistan, with many instances of Muslim openness, support and courage. Drawing on Jewish, Christian and Muslim sources, Gilbert uses archived material, poems, letters, memoirs and personal testimony to uncover the human voice of this centuries-old conflict. Ultimately, Gilbert’s moving account of mutual tolerance between Muslims and Jews provides a perspective on current events and a template for the future.

2 History

An entertaining blend of art history, anatomy and etymology that offers a wide-ranging analysis of finger lore

The Finger
A Handbook Angus Trumble
In this collision between art and science, history and pop culture, the acclaimed art historian Angus Trumble examines the finger from every possible angle. His inquiries into its representation in art take us from Buddhist statues in Kyoto to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, from cave art to Picasso’s Guernica, from Van Dyck’s and Rubens’s winning ways with gloves to the longstanding French taste for tapering digits. But Trumble also asks intriguing questions about the finger in general: how do fingers work, and why do most of us have five on each hand? Why do we bite our nails? This witty, odd and fascinating book is filled with diverse anecdotes about cow-milking, the fingerprint of a grave robber in King Tut’s tomb and a woman in Trumble’s local bank whose immensely long, coiled fingernails do not prevent her from signing a check. Side by side with historical discussions of rings and gloves and nail varnish are meditations on the finger’s essential role in writing, speech, sports, crime, law, sex and, of course, the eponymous show of contempt. “This is the sort of exuberant nonfiction in which you learn something surprising on every page, and not only does Trumble amass a great wealth of finger facts, his interpretations are deft and pleasing in their acuity, and his delight in the entire endeavour is contagious.”—Donna Seaman

Angus Trumble is Senior Curator of Paintings and Sculpture at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut, and the author of A Brief History of the Smile.

Philosophy 3

From the acclaimed author of Lying, a brilliant exploration of happiness set in the context of the world’s great philosophers, leaders, writers and artists
Maurice Quentin de la Tour, Madame de Chatelet-Lomont (detail). Private Collection/The Bridgeman Art Library.

Exploring Happiness
From Aristotle to Brain Science Sissela Bok
In this smart and timely book, the distinguished moral philosopher Sissela Bok ponders the nature of happiness and its place in philosophical thinking and writing throughout the ages. With nuance and elegance, Bok explores notions of happiness—from Greek philosophers to Desmond Tutu, Charles Darwin, Iris Murdoch and the Dalai Lama—as well as the latest theories advanced by psychologists, economists, geneticists and neuroscientists. Eschewing abstract theorising, Bok weaves in a wealth of firsthand observations about happiness from ordinary people as well as renowned figures. This may well be the most complete picture of happiness yet. This book is also a clarion call to think clearly and sensitively about happiness. Bringing together very different disciplines provides Bok with a unique opportunity to consider the role of happiness in wider questions of how we should lead our lives and treat one another—concerns that don’t often figure in today’s happiness equation. How should we pursue, weigh, value or limit our own happiness, or that of others, now and in the future? Compelling and perceptive, Exploring Happiness shines a welcome new light on the heart of the human condition. “Sissela Bok makes sense of happiness for adults: what sort of happiness we can seek, and what lies beyond our grasp. The book illuminates ‘the pursuit of happiness’ in modern economics, psychiatry and philosophy, but she addresses, in the end, any intelligent reader. Sissela Bok writes so clearly and directly that the reader is often caught up short, suddenly realising that her arguments are always provocations to think more deeply. This is a wise book.”—Richard Sennett

Sissela Bok is Senior Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, and a moral philosopher. A former member of the Pulitzer Prize Board, Bok is a Fellow of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. Her books include the seminal Lying, Secrets, A Strategy for Peace, Mayhem and Common Values.

4 History

The fullest biography yet of the man whose personality dominates mid-nineteenth century British politics
Orestes Pursued (Palmerston pursued by the Furies: Bright, Roebuck and Disraeli), Punch, 19 June 1858. Hulton Archive/Getty Images.

Palmerston
A Biography David Brown
A grand and fascinating figure in Victorian politics, the charismatic Lord Palmerston (1784–1865) presided over a period of great political and social change. He served as foreign secretary for fifteen years and prime minister for nine, engaged in struggles with everyone from the Duke of Wellington to Lord John Russell to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, engineered the emergence of Britain as a dominant great power, and played a major role in the development of liberalism and the Liberal Party. Born before the French Revolution and living to see the inception of the age of ‘mass urban democracy’, Palmerston’s life is a prism through which to view some of the most important developments and processes in the making of modern Britain and Europe. Palmerston was crucial to these processes, yet he appeared to many a deeply paradoxical figure, simultaneously elitist and populist; reactionary and democratic; liberal and conservative; reckless warmonger and careful, moderate diplomat. As this biography demonstrates, however, Palmerston was in fact a thoughtful, consistent and insightful politician. This comprehensive account, informed by unprecedented research in the statesman’s personal archives, gives full weight not only to Palmerston’s foreign policy achievements, but also to his domestic political activity, political thought, life as a landlord and private life and affairs. Through the lens of the milieu of his times, the book pinpoints for the first time the nature and extent of Palmerston’s contributions to the making of modern Britain.

David Brown is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Strathclyde. A former Hartley Institute Fellow and lecturer at the University of Southampton, he has written numerous articles on Palmerston and nineteenth-century British politics.

History 5

A provocative and personal new life of Galileo, arguing that he was far more revolutionary than usually claimed
Francesco Furini, Astronomy Shows Cosimo I the Satellites of Jupiter (detail). Photo: Scala, Florence.

Galileo
Watcher of the Skies David Wootton
Galileo (1564–1642) is one of the most important and controversial figures in the history of science. A hero of modern science and key to its birth, he was also a deeply divided man: a scholar committed to the establishment of scientific truth yet forced to concede the importance of faith, and a brilliant analyst of the elegantly mathematical workings of nature yet bungling and insensitive with his own family. Tackling Galileo as astronomer, engineer and author, David Wootton places him at the centre of Renaissance culture. He traces Galileo through his early rebellious years; the beginnings of his scientific career constructing a ‘new physics’; his move to Florence seeking money, status and greater freedom to attack intellectual orthodoxies; his trial for heresy and narrow escape from torture; and his house arrest and physical (though not intellectual) decline. Wootton reveals much that is new— from Galileo’s premature Copernicanism to a previously unrecognised illegitimate daughter—and, controversially, rejects the long-established orthodoxy which holds that Galileo was a good Catholic. Central to Galileo’s significance—and to science more broadly—is the telescope, the potential of which Galileo was the first to grasp. Wootton makes clear that it revolutionised and galvanised scientific endeavour to discover previously unimagined facts. Drawing extensively on Galileo’s letters, which were often self-censored and sly, this is an original and highly readable biography of a difficult but remarkable Renaissance genius.

Japan Fashion Now
Valerie Steele
with Patricia Mears, Yuniya Kawamura and Hiroshi Narumi Scholars have long acknowledged the significance of the Japanese ‘fashion revolution’ of the 1980s, when avant-garde designers Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons introduced a radically new conception of fashion. But what has happened in the years since then? Lavishly illustrated, Japan Fashion Now is the first book to explore how Japanese fashion has evolved in recent years. During this time, Japanese pop culture has swept the world, as young people everywhere read manga, watch anime and play video games. Japan has had a profound impact on global culture, often via new media. With essays by Valerie Steele (‘Is Japan Still the Future?’), Patricia Mears (‘Fashion Revolution’), Hiroshi Narumi (‘Japanese Street Style’) and Yuniya Kawamura (‘Japanese Fashion Subcultures’), Japan Fashion Now explores how the world of fashion has been transformed by contemporary Japanese visual culture.

Photography 7

A comprehensive retrospective of the work of one of the twentieth century’s greatest photographers
Photograph: André Kertész

Yale University Press is pleased to announce a new distribution arrangement with EDITIONS HAZAN, PARIS

André Kertész
Michel Frizot and Annie-Laure Wanaverbecq
André Kertész (1894–1985) is one of the most original and celebrated of photographers of the twentieth century. He was a founder of the modernist photography that originated in the European avant-garde movements of the 1920s, and although his lifelong unwillingness to compromise his independence and his creation of ‘photographic poetry’ made him an almost marginal figure for most of his life, his influence on the development of photography, particularly photojournalism, during the middle years of the century was profound. This comprehensive book accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Kertész’s work at Paris’s Jeu de Paume Museum (also visiting several other European venues including Winterthur, Berlin and Budapest). The text is organised around the three main periods of Kertész’s seventy-year-long career: Budapest, 1914–25; Paris, 1925–36; and New York, 1936–85. Each section of the text includes an illustrated historical analysis, a portfolio of works, and notes on particular elements of Kertész’s style and practice. Many rare vintage and period prints produced under the photographer’s control are reproduced to highest standards in this beautiful book, reflecting the visual quality of this exceptional body of compelling and poetic images.

8 History

An incisive, evocative history of the experience of empire in the oceanic world
Drawing of a Society Islander, Tupaia, from Cook’s first Voyage.

Islanders
The Pacific in the Age of Empire Nicholas Thomas
This compelling book explores the lived experience of empire in the Pacific, the last region to be contacted and colonised by Europeans following the great voyages of Captain Cook. Unlike conventional accounts which emphasise confrontation and the destruction of indigenous cultures, Islanders reveals there was gain as well as loss, survival as well as suffering and invention as well as exploitation. Empowered by imaginative research in obscure archives and collections, Thomas rediscovers a rich and surprising history of encounters, not only between Islanders and Europeans, but among Islanders, brought together in new ways by explorers, missionaries and colonists. He tells the story of the making of empire, not through an impersonal survey, but through vivid stories of the lives of men and women—some visionary, some vicious and some just eccentric—and through sensuous evocation of seascapes and landscapes of the Pacific. A fascinating re-creation of an Oceanic world, Islanders offers a new paradigm, not only for histories of the Pacific, but for understandings of cultural contact everywhere. “Intellectually sophisticated and clearly-written, this first-rate study of the experience of the Pacific Islanders provides one of the bestavailable studies of the nature of imperial contact and violence, and of the traumas they caused.”—Jeremy Black, University of Exeter

History 9

A lively and informed account of Egypt’s recent history and current situation
Cairo, 2009.

Egypt on the Brink
From Nasser to Mubarak Tarek Osman
Famous until the 1950s for its religious pluralism and extraordinary cultural heritage, Egypt is now seen as an increasingly repressive and divided land, home of the Muslim Brotherhood and an opaque regime headed by the aging President Mubarak. In this immensely readable and thoroughly researched book, Tarek Osman explores what has happened to the biggest Arab nation since President Nasser took control of the country in 1954. He examines Egypt’s central role in the development of the two crucial movements of the period, Arab nationalism and radical Islam; the increasingly contentious relationship between Muslims and Christians; and perhaps most important of all, the rift between the cosmopolitan elite and the mass of the undereducated and underemployed population, more than half of whom are aged under thirty. This is an essential guide to one of the Middle East’s most important but least understood states.
Born and raised in Egypt, Tarek Osman was educated at the American University in Cairo and Bocconi University in Italy. He writes for the website openDemocracy as well as a number of publications in the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East.

A profound, witty and informative account of the lives of the saints depicted in the devotional art of the Renaissance

Caravaggio, Saint Francis in Ecstasy, c.1596, Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut.

Blessed and Beautiful
Picturing the Saints Robert Kiely
This book offers a powerful and searching meditation on the lives of the saints and the images of them painted by Renaissance artists in Italy. Robert Kiely, a distinguished scholar of modernist literature and a historian and critic of exceptional sensibility, has a keen eye and uncanny ability to capture details of significance and to prompt the reader to look again and to see with fresh eyes that the lives of saints and the Renaissance depictions of them are anything but dull, uniform or narrowly orthodox. His beautifully written and thoughtful book treats saints seriously as human religious figures (not icons of perfection), brought to life by great Italian paintings in dialogue with scripture, legend and poetry. Wise, learned and readable, and offering a rare combination of insight into religion, literature and art, this ravishingly illustrated and vividly written volume should be by your side whenever you pick up a classic text, look at a Renaissance painting or spend a few moments in private meditation or prayer.
Robert Kiely is Professor Emeritus of English Literature, Harvard University. He publishes on the nineteenth-century English novel.

Defiance of the Patriots
The Boston Tea Party and the Making of America Benjamin L. Carp
On the evening of December 16, 1773, a group of disguised Bostonians boarded three merchant ships and dumped more than forty-six tons of tea into Boston Harbour. The Boston Tea Party, as it later came to be known, was an audacious and revolutionary act. It set the stage for war and cemented certain values in the American psyche that many still cherish today. But why did the Tea Party happen? Whom did it involve? What did it mean? The answers to these questions are far from straightforward. In this thrilling new book, Benjamin Carp tells the full story of the Tea Party—exploding myths, exploring the unique city life of Boston and setting this extraordinary event in a global context for the first time. Bringing vividly to life the diverse array of people and places that the Tea Party brought together, from Chinese tea-pickers to English businessmen, Native American tribes, sugar plantation slaves and Boston’s ladies of leisure, Carp illuminates how a determined group shook the foundations of a mighty empire, and what this has meant for Americans since. As he reveals many little-known historical facts and considers the Tea Party’s uncertain legacy, he presents a compelling and expansive history of an iconic event in America’s tempestuous past.
Benjamin L. Carp is Associate Professor of History at Tufts University, where he teaches the history of early America. Educated at Yale and Virginia, and having taught at the University of Edinburgh, Carp brings a strong transatlantic perspective to bear on his research. The previous recipient of Mellon and Leverhulme Research Fellowships, his first book was Rebels Rising: Cities and the American Revolution.

The Wars of the Roses
Michael Hicks The Wars of the Roses (1455–85) were a major turning point in English history. But the underlying causes for the successive upheavals have been hotly contested by historians ever since. In this original and stimulating new synthesis, distinguished historian Michael Hicks examines the difficult economic, military and financial crises and explains, for the first time, the real reasons why the Wars of the Roses began, why they kept recurring, and why, eventually, they ceased. Alongside fresh assessments of key personalities, Hicks sheds new light on the significance of the involvement of the people in politics, the intervention of foreign powers in English affairs and a fifteenth-century credit crunch. Combining a meticulous dissection of competing dynamics with a clear account of the course of events, this is a definitive and indispensable history of a compelling, complex period.
Michael Hicks is professor of medieval history and head of the Department of History, University of Winchester. He is a specialist on late medieval England.

King Stephen
Edmund King This compelling new biography provides the most authoritative picture yet of King Stephen, whose reign (1135–1154), with its ‘nineteen long winters’ of civil war, made his name synonymous with failed leadership. After years of work on the sources, Edmund King shows with rare clarity the strengths and weaknesses of the monarch. Keeping Stephen at the forefront of his account, the author also chronicles the activities of key family members and associates whose loyal support sustained Stephen’s kingship. In 1135 the popular Stephen was elected king against the claims of the empress Matilda and her sons. But by 1153, Stephen had lost control over Normandy and other important regions, England had lost prestige, and the weakened king was forced to cede his family’s right to succession. A rich narrative covering the drama of a tumultuous reign, this book focuses well-deserved attention on a king who lost control of his destiny.
Edmund King is Emeritus Professor of Medieval History at the University of Sheffield. He has published widely in the field of medieval British history and the reign of King Stephen.

History 13

An Atlas of the Peninsular War, 1808–1814
Ian Robertson Cartography by Martin Brown This is the first comprehensive modern atlas of the Peninsular War, the series of campaigns in which almost all the fighting on land took place between Napoleonic France and British forces commanded by Sir Arthur Wellesley (later Duke of Wellington). Here a distinguished military historian examines and explains the sequence of battles and the course of that long war through expertly-drawn cartography in colour. A general introduction, together with a historical summary setting the campaigns in context, is followed by 53 detailed maps and plans, each with a complementary text. The physical features of the terrain, with due emphasis on contour, together with the movements and deployment of troops, are portrayed in an animated visual form.
Ian Robertson is the author of Wellington at War in the Peninsula, Wellington Invades France and A Commanding Presence.

The great battles of Vimeiro, Talavera, Busaco, Albuera, Salamanca, Vitoria and the Pyrenees are all graphically described, together with the main sieges and many minor combats; while due importance is given to the several hard-fought actions of the concluding campaign, ending in the blood-bath at Toulouse. The Atlas also contains a chronology, glossary and selective bibliography, making it an indispensable companion to both serious students and amateurs interested in the Napoleonic wars, during the current bicentennial commemoration and beyond.

Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade
David Eltis and David Richardson
Foreword by David Brion Davis • Afterword by David W. Blight

Between 1501 and 1867, the transatlantic slave trade claimed an estimated 12.5 million Africans and involved almost every country with an Atlantic coastline. In this extraordinary book, two leading historians have created the first comprehensive, up-to-date atlas on this 350-year history of kidnapping and coercion. It features nearly 200 maps, especially created for the volume, that explore every detail of the African slave traffic to the New World. The atlas is based on an online database (www.slavevoyages.org) with records on nearly 35,000 slaving voyages—roughly 80 percent of all such voyages ever made. Using maps, David Eltis and David Richardson show which nations participated in the slave trade, where the ships involved were outfitted, where the captives boarded ship and where they were landed in the Americas, as well as the experience of the transatlantic voyage and the geographic dimensions of the eventual abolition of the traffic. Accompanying the maps are illustrations and contemporary literary selections, including poems, letters and diary entries, intended to enhance a readers’ understanding of the human story underlying the trade from its inception to its end.

Ravel
Roger Nichols This new biography of Maurice Ravel (1875–1937), by one of the leading scholars of nineteenth- and twentieth-century French music, is based on a wealth of written and oral evidence, some newly translated and some derived from interviews with the composer’s friends and associates. As well as describing the circumstances in which Ravel composed, the book explores new evidence to present radical views of the composer’s background and upbringing, his notorious failure in the Prix de Rome, his incisive and often combative character, his sexual preferences and his long final illness. It also contains the most detailed account so far published of his hugely successful American tour of 1928. The world of Maurice Ravel—including friendships (and some fallings-out) with Debussy, Fauré, Diaghilev, Gershwin and Toscanini—is deftly uncovered in this sensitive portrait. “Roger Nichols brings Ravel to life in a way which few, if any, previous writers have done.”—Nigel Simeone, co-author of Messiaen
Roger Nichols read Music at Worcester College, Oxford, with Edmund Rubbra and Frederick Sternfeld, and has written and contributed to over twenty books on music. He was decorated as Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur in 2006 for his 40 years of service to French music, as a biographer, historian, editor, broadcaster, pianist and lecturer.

George Gershwin
Larry Starr
George Gershwin, one of America’s best-loved twentieth-century composers, left a rich legacy of popular music that includes musicals, concert pieces, an opera, and movie scores. In this welcome addition to the Yale Broadway Masters series, Larry Starr focuses fresh attention on George Gershwin’s Broadway contributions and examines their centrality to the composer’s entire career. Starr presents Gershwin as a composer with a unified musical vision— a vision developed on Broadway and used as a source of strength in his well-known concert music. In turn, Gershwin’s concert-hall experience enriched and strengthened his musicals, leading eventually to his great ‘Broadway opera’, Porgy and Bess. Through the prism of three major shows—Lady Be Good (1924), Of Thee I Sing (1931) and Porgy and Bess (1935)—Starr highlights Gershwin’s distinctive contributions to the evolution of the Broadway musical. In addition, the author considers Gershwin’s musical language, his compositions for the concert hall and his movie scores for Hollywood in the light of his Broadway experience.
Larry Starr is a Professor of Music History, University of Washington.

Literary Studies 15

A personal, penetrating and polemical account of what Modernism is and how contemporary literature has failed it
Photo: V. Carew-Hunt

What Ever Happened to Modernism?
Gabriel Josipovici
The quality of today’s literary writing arouses the strongest opinions. For novelist and critic Gabriel Josipovici, the contemporary novel in English is profoundly disappointing—a poor relation of its groundbreaking Modernist forebears. This agile and passionate book asks why. Modernism, Josipovici suggests, is only superficially a reaction to industrialisation or a revolution in diction and form; essentially, it is art coming to consciousness of its own limits and responsibilities. And its origins are to be sought not in 1850 or 1800, but in the early 1500s, with the crisis of society and perception that also led to the rise of Protestantism. With sophistication and persuasiveness, Josipovici charts some of Modernism’s key stages, from Dürer, Rabelais and Cervantes to the present, bringing together a rich array of artists, musicians and writers both familiar and unexpected—including Beckett, Borges, Friedrich, Cézanne, Stevens, Robbe-Grillet, Beethoven and Wordsworth. He concludes with a stinging attack on the current literary scene in Britain and America, which raises questions not only about national taste, but contemporary culture itself. Gabriel Josipovici has spent a lifetime writing, and writing about other writers. What Ever Happened to Modernism? is a strident call to arms, and a tour de force of literary, artistic and philosophical explication that will stimulate anyone interested in art in the twentieth century and today.
Gabriel Josipovici is a novelist, literary theorist, critic and scholar. He was Professor of English at the University of Sussex, and Weidenfeld Professor of Comparative Literature at Oxford, and is now research professor in the Graduate School of Humanities, Sussex. He has published three previous books with Yale, The Book of God, Touch and On Trust.

A new and riveting portrait of the great Sarah Bernhardt from writer Robert Gottlieb

Sarah
The Life of Sarah Bernhardt Robert Gottlieb
Everything about Sarah Bernhard is fascinating, from her obscure birth to her glorious career—redefining the very nature of her art—to her amazing (and highly public) romantic life to her indomitable spirit. Well into her seventies, after the amputation of her leg, she was performing under bombardment for soldiers during World War I, as well as crisscrossing America on her ninth American tour. Her family was also a source of curiosity: the mother she adored and who scorned her; her two half-sisters, who died young after lives of dissipation; and most of all, her son, Maurice, whom she worshipped and raised as an aristocrat, in the style appropriate to his presumed father, the Belgian Prince de Ligne. Only once did they quarrel—over the Dreyfus Affair. Maurice was a right-wing snob; Sarah, always proud of her Jewish heritage, was a passionate Dreyfusard and Zolaist. Though the Bernhardt literature is vast, Gottlieb’s Sarah is the first English-language biography to appear in decades. Brilliantly, it tracks the trajectory through which an illegitimate—and scandalous— daughter of a courtesan transformed herself into the most famous actress who ever lived, and into a national icon, a symbol of France.
Robert Gottlieb is the author of the acclaimed Balanchine: The Ballet Maker. He writes for the New York Review of Books, The New Yorker and other publications, and is dance critic for the New York Observer. His career in publishing—as editor in chief of Simon and Schuster, Alfred A. Knopf and The New Yorker—is legendary.

A stunning visual history of the life and career of Harry Houdini

Houdini
Art and Magic Brooke Kamin Rapaport
With contributions by Alan Brinkley, Hasia R. Diner, Gabriel de Guzman and Kenneth Silverman

Born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest, Harry Houdini (1874–1926) was a rabbi’s son who became one of the 20th century’s most famous performers. His theatrical presentations and outdoor spectacles attracted unprecedented crowds, and his talent for self-promotion and provocation captured headlines on both sides of the Atlantic. Though Houdini’s work has earned him a place in the cultural pantheon, the details of his personal life and public persona are subjects of equal fascination. His success was both cause for celebration in the Jewish community and testament to his powers of self-reinvention. In Houdini, essays on the artist’s life and work are accompanied by interviews with novelist E. L. Doctorow, magician Teller (of Penn and Teller) and contemporary artists including Raymond Pettibon and Matthew Barney, documenting Houdini’s evolution and influence from the late 19th century to the present. Beautifully illustrated with a range of visual material, including Houdini’s own diaries, iconic handcuffs and straitjacket, alongside rare period posters, prints and photographs, this book brings Houdini—both the myth and the man—back to life.

The Anthology of Rap
Edited by Adam Bradley and Andrew DuBois Foreword by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. • Afterword by Common From the school yards of the South Bronx to the top of the charts, rap has emerged as one of the most influential cultural forces of our time. In The Anthology of Rap, editors Adam Bradley and Andrew DuBois demonstrate that rap is also a wide-reaching and vital poetic tradition born of beats and rhymes. This pioneering anthology brings together more than three hundred lyrics written over thirty years, from the ‘old school’ to the ‘golden age’ to the present day. Rather than aim for encyclopedic coverage, Bradley and DuBois render through examples the richness and diversity of rap’s poetic tradition. They feature both classic lyrics that helped define the genre, including Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five’s ‘The Message’ and Eric B. & Rakim’s ‘Microphone Fiend’, as well as lesser-known gems like Blackalicious’s ‘Alphabet Aerobics’ and Jean Grae’s ‘Hater’s Anthem’. Both a fan’s guide and a resource for the uninitiated, The Anthology of Rap showcases the inventiveness and vitality of rap’s lyrical art. The volume also features an overview of rap poetics and the forces that shaped each period in rap’s historical development, as well as a foreword by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and an afterword by Common.
Adam Bradley is Associate Professor of English at the University of Colorado and the author of Book of Rhymes: The Poetics of Hip-Hop and Ralph Ellison in Progress. He is also co-editor of Ralph Ellison’s unfinished second novel, Three Days Before the Shooting.

Moon
A Brief History Bernd Brunner Werewolves and Wernher von Braun, Stonehenge and the sex lives of sea corals, aboriginal myths and an Anglican bishop: in his new book, Moon, Bernd Brunner weaves variegated information into an enchanting glimpse of Earth’s closest celestial neighbour, whose mere presence inspires us to wonder what might be ‘out there’. Going beyond the discoveries of contemporary science, Brunner presents an unusual cultural assessment of our complex relationship with Earth’s lifeless, rocky satellite. As well as offering an engaging perspective on such age-old questions as ‘What would Earth be like without the moon?’, Brunner surveys the moon’s mythical and religious significance and provokes existential soul-searching through his lunar lens. Drawing on materials from different cultures and epochs, Brunner walks readers down a moonlit path illuminated by more than seventyfive vintage photographs and illustrations. From scientific discussions of the moon’s origins and its ‘chronobiological’ effects on the mating and feeding habits of animals, to an illuminating interpretation of Bishop Francis Godwin’s 1638 novel The Man in the Moone, Brunner’s ingenious and interdisciplinary explorations recast a familiar object in an entirely original and unforgettable light and will change the way we view the sky at night.
Bernd Brunner is the author of other successful works intersecting history, science and literature, including Bears and The Ocean at Home.

The Doonesbury Chronicles, cover photograph for the first anthology published by Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1975.

Doonesbury and the Art of G.B. Trudeau
Brian Walker
Best known for his wry and incisive takes on American life and politics through the comic strip Doonesbury, Garry Trudeau is among the world’s most widely read cartoonists. Trudeau began shaping Doonesbury as an undergraduate contributor to the Yale Daily News. Today, the strip is syndicated to a daily readership of nearly 100 million. Trudeau’s work has been anthologised before, but this is the first book to assess the art of the comic strip and the ways that Trudeau’s iconic style has evolved over the past four decades. Brian Walker, an expert on the history of comics, sheds light on Trudeau’s early influences as well as on his creative process, from research to pencil layouts to finished artwork. In addition to revealing how Doonesbury is crafted each week, the book also examines Trudeau’s magazine illustrations, animation drawings, posters and product designs, as well as some rare and previously unpublished works. Walker’s historical text is complemented by insightful commentary by Trudeau and his collaborators, Don Carleton, George Corsillo and David Stanford, making this book appealing not only to Doonesbury’s many fans but also to those looking for an approach to the work of a master comic strip artist.
Brian Walker organised the first major exhibition of Garry Trudeau’s work, The Doonesbury Retrospective, at the Museum of Cartoon Art in 1983. He has served as curator for more than sixty-five cartoon exhibitions and has written numerous books on comics including The Comics: The Complete Collection, The Best of Ernie Bushmiller’s Nancy and Barney Google and Snuffy Smith: 75 Years of an American Legend.

20 History

Gulag Voices
An Anthology Edited by Anne Applebaum Anne Applebaum wields her considerable knowledge of this dark chapter in history and presents a collection of the writings of survivors of the Gulag, the Soviet concentration camps. Although the opening of the Soviet archives to scholars has made it possible to write the history of this notorious concentration camp system, documents tell only one side of the story. Gulag Voices now fills in the other half. The backgrounds of the writers reflect the extraordinary diversity of the Gulag itself. Here are the personal stories of figures such as renowned literary scholar Dmitri Likhachev, Anatoly Marchenko, the son of illiterate labourers and American citizen Alexander Dolgun. These remembrances—many of them appearing in English for the first time, each chosen for both literary and historical value—collectively spotlight the strange moral universe of the camps, as well as the relationships that prisoners had with one another, with their guards and with professional criminals who lived beside them.
Annals of Communism Series

A vital addition to the literature of this era, annotated for a generation that no longer remembers the Soviet Union, Gulag Voices will inform, interest and inspire, offering a source for reflection on human nature itself.
Anne Applebaum’s Gulag: A History won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction as well as numerous other awards. A columnist for the Washington Post, she is a regular contributor to many publications, including the New York Review of Books and the New Republic.

Turkey, Islam, Nationalism, and Modernity
A History Carter Findley Turkey, Islam, Nationalism, and Modernity reveals the historical dynamics propelling two centuries of Ottoman and Turkish history. As mounting threats to imperial survival necessitated dynamic responses, ethnolinguistic and religious identities inspired alternative strategies for engaging with modernity. A radical, secularising current of change competed with a conservative, Islamically committed current. Crises sharpened the differentiation of the two currents, forcing choices between them. The radical current began with the formation of reformist governmental elites and expanded with the advent of ‘print capitalism’. The radicals engineered the 1908 Young Turk revolution, ruled empire and republic until 1950 and still retain powerful positions. The conservative current gained impetus from three history-making Islamic renewal movements, those of Mevlana Halid, Said Nursi and Fethullah Gülen. Powerful under the empire, Islamic conservatives did not regain control of government until the 1980s. Findley rejects earlier historians’ depiction of a linear evolution from religion and autocracy toward secularism and nationhood. His reassessment reveals instead the dialectical interaction between radical and conservative currents of change, which alternately clashed and converged to shape late Ottoman and republican Turkish history.
Carter Findley is a Humanities Distinguished Professor at Ohio State University, an honorary member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences and author of The Turks in World History.

Biography 21

A Complicated Man
The Life of Bill Clinton as Told by Those Who Knew Him Michael Takiff Though Bill Clinton has been out of office since 2001, public fascination with him continues unabated. Many books about Clinton have been published in recent years, but shockingly, no single-volume biography covers the full scope of Clinton’s life from the cradle to the present day, not even Clinton’s own account, My Life. More troubling still, books on Clinton have tended to be highly polarised, casting the former president in an overly positive or negative light. In this, the first complete history of Clinton’s life, historian Michael Takiff presents the first truly balanced book on one of America’s most controversial and fascinating presidents. Through more than 150 chronologically arranged interviews with key figures including Bob Dole, James Carville and Tom Brokaw, among many others, A Complicated Man goes far beyond the well-worn party-line territory to capture the larger-than-life essence of Clinton the man. With the tremendous attention given to the Lewinsky scandal, it is easy to overlook the president’s humble upbringing, as well as his many achievements: the longest economic boom in American history, a balanced budget, successful intervention in the Balkans and a series of landmark, if controversial, free-trade agreements. Through the candid recollections of Takiff ’s many subjects, this biography leaves no area unexplored, revealing the most complete and unexpected portrait of America’s forty-second president published to date.

Michael Takiff is an independent scholar and oral historian. He is author of Brave Men, Gentle Heroes: American Fathers and Sons in World War II and Vietnam.

Joe Louis
Hard Times Man Randy Roberts Joe Louis defended his heavyweight boxing title an astonishing twentyfive times and reigned as world champion for more than eleven years. He got more column inches of newspaper coverage in the 1930s than FDR did. His racially and politically charged defeat of Max Schmeling in 1938 made Louis a national hero. But as important as his record is what he meant to African-Americans: at a time when the boxing ring was the only venue where black and white could meet on equal terms, Louis embodied all their hopes for dignity and equality. Through meticulous research and first-hand interviews, acclaimed historian and biographer Randy Roberts presents Louis, and his impact on sport and country, in a way never before accomplished. Roberts reveals an athlete who carefully managed his public image, and whose relationships with both the black and white communities—including his relationships with mobsters—were far more complex than the simplistic accounts of heroism and victimisation that have dominated previous biographies.
Randy Roberts is distinguished professor of history at Purdue University.

Richly researched and utterly captivating, this extraordinary biography presents the full array of Joe Louis’ power in and out of the boxing ring. “As sleek and powerful as Louis in his prime, Roberts’ biography strips away the hagiography and victimology to portray the great champion as a vibrant player in the heart of the American century.” —Robert Lipsyte, New York Times contributor

Joseph Brodsky
A Literary Life Lev Loseff Translated by Jane Ann Miller The work of Joseph Brodsky (1940–1996), one of Russia’s great modern poets, has been the subject of much study and debate. His life, too, is the stuff of legend, from his survival of the siege of Leningrad in early childhood to his expulsion from the Soviet Union and his achievements as a Nobel Prize winner and America’s poet laureate. In this penetrating biography, Brodsky’s life and work are illuminated by his great friend, the late poet and literary scholar Lev Loseff. Drawing on a wide range of source materials, some previously unpublished, and extensive interviews with writers and critics, Loseff carefully reconstructs Brodsky’s personal history while offering deft and sensitive commentary on the philosophical, religious and mythological sources that influenced the poet’s work. Published to great acclaim in Russia and now available in English for the first time, this is literary biography of the first order, and sets the groundwork for any books on Brodsky that might follow. “The best single literary biography of the writer yet to have appeared in any language.”—The Times Literary Supplement

Mozart and the Nazis
How the Third Reich Abused a Cultural Icon Erik Levi Despite the apparent incompatibility between Mozart’s humanitarian and cosmopolitan outlook and Nazi ideology, the Third Reich tenaciously promoted the great composer’s music to further the goals of the fascist regime. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on period articles, diaries, speeches and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage. The book also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies of Mozart reception that resulted from Nazi appropriation of his work. Augmented by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis will be widely welcomed by readers with interests in music, German history, Holocaust studies, propaganda and politics in the twentieth century.
Erik Levi is reader in music, Royal Holloway University of London. He is the author of Music in the Third Reich and has written numerous articles and chapters on many aspects of twentieth-century music, especially on music in Germany during the Nazi regime.

How Intelligence Happens
John Duncan Human intelligence is among the most powerful forces on earth. It builds sprawling cities, vast cornfields and coffee plantations, complex microchips; it takes us from the atom to the limits of the universe. Understanding how brains build intelligence is among the most fascinating challenges of modern science. How does the biological brain, a collection of billions of cells, enable us to do things no other species can do? In this book John Duncan, a scientist who has spent thirty years studying the human brain, offers an adventure story—the story of the hunt for basic principles of human intelligence, behaviour and thought. Using results drawn from classical studies of intelligence testing; from attempts to build computers that think; from studies of how minds change after brain damage; from modern discoveries of brain imaging; and from groundbreaking recent research, Duncan synthesises often difficult-to-understand information into a book that will delight scientific and popular readers alike. He explains how brains break down problems into useful, solvable parts and then assemble these parts into the complex mental programmes of human thought and action. Moving from the foundations of psychology, artificial intelligence and neuroscience to the most current scientific thinking, How Intelligence Happens is for all those curious to understand how their own mind works.

Fires of Faith
Catholic England under Mary Tudor Eamon Duffy The reign of Mary Tudor has been remembered as an era of sterile repression, when a reactionary monarch launched a doomed attempt to reimpose Catholicism on an unwilling nation. Above all, the burning alive of more than 280 men and women for their religious beliefs seared the rule of ‘Bloody Mary’ into the protestant imagination. In this controversial reassessment, the renowned reformation historian Eamon Duffy argues that Mary’s regime was neither inept nor backward looking. “a dazzling exercise in historical reappraisal, after which the reign of Mary Tudor will never look quite the same again.”—Peter Marshall, The Times Literary Supplement “Duffy makes a convincing and strongly argued case for a reexamination of the burnings . . .

The Master and His Emissary
The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World Iain McGilchrist In this groundbreaking book, Iain McGilchrist draws on recent research to reveal the profound differences between the brain’s left and right hemispheres—the left narrowly focused and inclined to self-interest, the right with a broader and more generous outlook. He traces the dynamic between these two worlds throughout the history of Western culture and illustrates how the left hemisphere is increasingly taking precedence in the modern world, with potentially dangerous consequences. “a giant in his vital field shows convincingly that the degeneracy of the West springs from our failure to manage the binary division of our brains.”—David Cox, Evening Standard “This is a very remarkable book . . . McGilchrist, who is both an experienced psychiatrist and a shrewd philosopher, looks at the relation between our two brain-hemispheres in a new light . . .

Demobbed
Coming Home After World War Two Alan Allport Demobbed is the real story of what happened when millions of ex-servicemen returned home. Most had been absent for years, and the joy of arrival was often clouded with ambivalence, regrets and fears. Alan Allport draws on their personal letters and diaries, on newspapers, reports, novels and films to illuminate the darker side of the homecoming experience for ex-servicemen, their families and society at large—a gripping tale that’s in danger of being lost to national memory. “Alan Allport has done a singular service in exposing at last some of the realities of the demobilization experience . . . a powerful and pioneering study of a topic which takes the familiar story of the war and reminds us how war messes up the lives of all those affected by its inexorable demands.”—Richard Overy, Literary Review “Demobbed is a detailed and sympathetic examination of this difficult story . . . [it] manages to wear its erudition lightly and has a pleasing, easy style.”—Roger Moorhouse, BBC History Magazine “Millions of men—who in many cases had been away for years— returned to their families in 1945. But was it a happy homecoming? A new book tells their stories”—Daily Express
Alan Allport has a doctorate in history from the University of Pennsylvania and is currently a postdoctoral lecturer at Princeton.

Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World
Jeffrey Herf This groundbreaking history presents the most comprehensive account to date of Nazi Germany’s Arabiclanguage propaganda during World War II aimed at North Africa and the Middle East. In so doing, it explores the collaboration of officials of the Third Reich with pro-Nazi Arab exiles in wartime Berlin and the resulting diffusion of a mixture of European and Islamist forms of anti-Semitism in the Middle East in the postwar decades. “a thorough and important description of Nazi propaganda to the Arab world during World War II . . . quite accurately and ominously highlights the parallels between Nazi antiSemitic tenets and Islamist anti-Semitism.”—Benny Morris “Reading Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World is a reminder of how powerful such lies can be . . . We have not yet heard the end of the ideas whose birth Herf documents in this frightening, necessary book.”—Adam Kirsch, The Tablet

History 29

The End of Byzantium
Jonathan Harris By 1400, the once-mighty Byzantine Empire stood on the verge of destruction. Most of its territories had been lost to the Ottoman Turks, and Constantinople was under close blockade. Against all odds, Byzantium lingered on for another fifty years until 1453, when the Ottomans dramatically toppled the capital’s walls. During this bleak and uncertain time, ordinary Byzantines faced difficult decisions to protect their livelihoods and families against the death throes of their homeland. In this evocative and moving book, Jonathan Harris explores individual stories of diplomatic manoeuvres, covert defiance and sheer luck against a backdrop of major historical currents, and he traces Byzantium’s legacy through those emigrants and refugees who reached and influenced Italy, Russia and beyond. Weaving together letters, chronicles, travellers’ accounts and other little-known archival documents, Harris dispels the myth of constant warfare between Islam and Christianity in the Middle Ages and offers a new perspective on the real reasons behind the fall of this extraordinarily fascinating empire. “A welcome and highly readable treatment of one of the most important events in world history . . . a fine work of scholarship. [Jonathan Harris] handles his subject with narrative momentum and descriptive flair, and he never loses sight of the humanity involved in these twilight years of a once-great empire.” —Norman Housley, author of Fighting for the Cross

Jonathan Harris is Reader in Byzantine History, Royal Holloway, University of London. His previous books include Byzantium and the Crusades and Constantinople: Capital of Byzantium.

The Battle of Marathon
Peter Krentz How did the city-state of Athens defeat the invaders from Persia, the first world empire, on the plain of Marathon in 490 BCE? Scholars sceptical of our earliest surviving source, Herodotus, have produced one theory after another. This new book argues that Herodotus was right after all. Beginning his analysis with the Athenians’ first formal contact with the Persians in 507 BCE, Krentz weaves together ancient evidence with travellers’ descriptions, archaeological discoveries, geological surveys, and the experiences of modern reenactors and soldiers to tell his story. He argues that before Marathon the Athenian army fought in a much less organised way than the standard view of the hoplite phalanx suggests. At Marathon the Athenians equipped all their fighters, including archers and horsemen, as hoplites for the first time. Because their equipment weighed only half as much as is usually thought, the Athenians and their Plataean allies could charge almost a mile at a run, as Herodotus says they did. Krentz improves on Herodotus’ account by showing why the Athenians wanted to do such a risky thing.

Butterfly’s Sisters
The Geisha in Western Culture
Yoko Kawaguchi In this fascinating and wide-ranging book, Yoko Kawaguchi explores the Western portrayal of Japanese women—and geishas in particular—from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. She argues that in the West, Japanese women have come to embody certain ideas about feminine sexuality, and she analyses how these ideas have been expressed in diverse art forms, ranging from fiction and opera to the visual arts and music videos. Among the many works Kawaguchi discusses are the art criticism of Baudelaire and Huysmans, the opera Madama Butterfly, the sculptures of Rodin, the Broadway play Teahouse of the August Moon, and the international bestseller Memoirs of a Geisha. Butterfly’s Sisters also examines the impact on early twentieth-century theatre, drama and dance theory of the performance styles of the actresses Madame Hanako and Sadayakko, both formerly geishas.
Yoko Kawaguchi has written and lectured on many aspects of Japanese culture, including garden design, costume and drama.

The Jews of San Nicandro
John Davis Not many people know of the utterly extraordinary events that took place in a humble southern Italian town in the first half of the twentieth century—and those who do have struggled to explain them. In the late 1920s, a crippled shoemaker had a vision where God called upon him to bring the Jewish faith to this ‘dark corner’ in the Catholic heartlands, despite him having had no prior contact with Judaism itself. By 1938, about a dozen families had converted at one of the most troubled times for Italy’s Jews. The peasant community came under the watchful eyes of Mussolini’s regime and the Catholic Church, but persisted in their new belief, eventually securing approval of their conversion from the rabbinical authorities, and emigrating to the newly founded State of Israel, where a community still exists today. In this first fully documented examination of the San Nicandro story, John Davis explains how and why these incredible events unfolded as they did. Using the converts’ own accounts and a wide range of hitherto unknown sources, Davis uncovers the everyday trials and tribulations within this community, and shows how they intersected with many key contemporary issues, including national identity and popular devotional cults, Fascist and Catholic persecution, Zionist networks and postwar Jewish refugees, and the mass exodus that would bring the Mediterranean peasant world to an end. Vivid and poignant, this book draws fresh and intriguing links between the astonishing San Nicandro affair and the wider transformation of twentieth-century Europe.
John Davis is Emiliana Pasca Noether Professor of Modern Italian History and Director, Center for European Studies, University of Connecticut, and previously Director of the Centre for Social History at the University of Warwick. He specialises in the social history of the south of Italy in the 19th and 20th centuries.

A Living Man from Africa
Jan Tzatzoe, Xhosa Chief and Missionary, and the Making of Nineteenth Century South Africa
Roger S. Levine Born into a Xhosa royal family around 1792 in South Africa, Jan Tzatzoe was destined to live in an era of profound change—one that witnessed the arrival and entrenchment of European colonialism. As a missionary, chief and cultural intermediary on the eastern Cape frontier and in Cape Town, and a traveller in Great Britain, Tzatzoe helped foster the merging of African and European worlds into a new South African reality. Yet, by the 1860s, he was an oppressed subject of harsh British colonial rule. Roger S. Levine reclaims Tzatzoe’s lost story, and analyses his contributions to, and experiences with, the turbulent colonial world to argue for the crucial role of Africans as agents of cultural and intellectual change. Tzatzoe’s compelling journey brings the entire colonial encounter to life in this innovative, richly researched and splendidly written biography.

History 31

Fruitlands
The Alcott Family and Their Search for Utopia
Richard Francis This is the first definitive account of Fruitlands, one of history’s most unsuccessful—but most significant—utopian experiments. It was established in Massachusetts in 1843 by Bronson Alcott (whose ten-year-old daughter Louisa May, future author of Little Women, was among the members) and an Englishman called Charles Lane, under the watchful gaze of Emerson, Thoreau and other New England intellectuals. Alcott and Lane developed their own version of the doctrine known as Transcendentalism, hoping to transform society and redeem the environment through a strict regime of veganism and celibacy. But physical suffering and emotional conflict—particularly between Lane and Alcott’s wife, Abigail—made the community unsustainable. Richard Francis explores the relationship between the complex philosophical beliefs held by Alcott, Lane and their fellow idealists and their day-to-day lives. The result is a vivid and often very funny narrative of their travails, demonstrating the dilemmas and conflicts inherent to any utopian experiment and shedding light on a fascinating period of American history.
Richard Francis has taught at universities on both sides of the Atlantic and has previously written on Ann Lee, founder of the Shakers, and on the Salem witch trials. He is also a novelist.

The Encyclopedia of New York City
Second Edition
Edited by Kenneth T. Jackson Covering an exhaustive range of information about the five boroughs, the first edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City was a success by every measure, earning worldwide acclaim and selling out its first printing before it was officially published. But much has changed since the volume first appeared in 1995: the World Trade Centre no longer dominates the skyline, a billionaire businessman has become an unlikely three-term mayor, and urban regeneration has become commonplace. To reflect such innovation and change, this definitive, one-volume resource on the city has been completely revised and expanded. This edition includes 800 new entries that help complete the story of New York. The new material includes broader coverage of subject areas previously underserved as well as new maps and illustrations. Virtually all existing entries—spanning architecture, politics, business, sports, the arts and more—have been updated to reflect the past two decades. The more than 5,000 alphabetical entries and 700 illustrations of the second edition of The Encyclopedia convey the richness and diversity of its subject and it will serve as an indispensable tool for all who have even a passing interest in the American metropolis.
Kenneth T. Jackson is the Jacques Barzun Professor of History and the Social Sciences at Columbia University and Director of the Herbert H. Lehman Center for American History.

Letters from America
Alexis de Tocqueville Edited, Translated and with an Introduction by Frederick Brown Young Alexis de Tocqueville arrived in the United States for the first time in May 1831, commissioned by the French government to study the American prison system. For the next nine months he and his companion, Gustave de Beaumont, travelled and observed not only prisons but also the political, economic and social systems of the early republic. Along the way, they frequently reported back to friends and family members in France. This book presents the first translation of the complete letters Tocqueville wrote during that seminal journey, accompanied by excerpts from Beaumont’s correspondence that provide details or different perspectives on the places, people and American life and attitudes the travellers encountered. These delightful letters provide an intimate portrait of the complicated, talented Tocqueville, who opened himself without prejudice to the world of Jacksonian America.
Frederick Brown is professor emeritus, State University of New York at Stony Brook. His previous books include Zola: A Life, Flaubert: A Biography and The Soul of France: Culture Wars in the Age of Dreyfus.

32 History

The Unfinished Revolution
Making Sense of the Communist Past in Central-Eastern Europe
James Mark While the West has repeatedly been sold images of a victorious people’s revolution in 1989, the idea that dictatorship has been truly overcome is foreign to many in the former Communist bloc. In this wide-ranging work, James Mark examines how new democratic societies are still divided by the past. While some view 1989 as a betrayal and defeat, and continue an ‘unfinished struggle’ against the former regime, others seek to heal the divisions of history, and ex-Communists proclaim themselves to be the real liberators from dictatorship. This book also presents the voices of ordinary people who lived through Communism to uncover the variety of ways in which they now come to terms with their choices and experiences. Drawing on a broad range of themes and sources this is the first work to integrate the study of politics, culture and social memory across central-eastern Europe.
James Mark is Senior Lecturer in History at Exeter University, and a graduate of the East European Centre at St Antony’s College, Oxford.

Russia’s Cold War
From the October Revolution to the Fall of the Wall
Jonathan Haslam The phrase ‘Cold War’ was coined by George Orwell in 1945 to describe the impact of the atomic bomb on world politics. The Soviet Union, he wrote, was ‘at once unconquerable and in a permanent state of ‘cold war’ with its neighbours’. But as Jonathan Haslam makes clear, the epoch was anything but stable, with constant wars, near-wars and political upheavals. Whereas the Western perspective of the Cold War has been well documented by journalists and historians, the Soviet side has remained for the most part shrouded in secrecy—until now. Drawing on a vast range of recently released archives in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and Eastern Europe, Russia’s Cold War offers a thorough and fascinating analysis of East-West relations from 1917 to 1989. Far more than merely a straightforward history of the Cold War, this book presents the first account of politics and decision making at the highest levels of Soviet power.
Jonathan Haslam is Professor of the History of International Relations at Cambridge, Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and a Fellow of the British Academy.

The Invisible Harry Gold
The Man Who Gave the Soviets the Atom Bomb
Allen M. Hornblum In the history of Soviet espionage in America, few people figure more crucially than Harry Gold. A Russian Jewish immigrant who spied for the Soviets from 1935 until 1950, Gold was an accomplished industrial and military espionage agent. He was assigned to be physicist Klaus Fuchs’s ‘handler’ and ultimately conveyed stolen information to Russian agents and was the man who gave the USSR the plans for the atom bomb. Subject of the most intensive public manhunt in the history of the FBI, Gold was arrested in 1950, his confession revealing scores of contacts. Yet among his co-workers, fellow prisoners and even those in the FBI, Gold earned respect, admiration and affection.
Allen M. Hornblum has been executive director of Americans for Democratic Action, chief of staff of the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office and college lecturer.

Too Much to Know
Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age
Ann M. Blair The flood of information brought to us by advancing technology is often accompanied by a distressing sense of ‘information overload’, yet this experience is not unique to modern times. In fact, says Ann Blair in this intriguing book, the invention of the printing press and the ensuing abundance of books provoked sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European scholars to register complaints very similar to our own. The author examines methods of information management in ancient and medieval Europe as well as the Islamic world and China, then focuses particular attention on the organisation, composition and reception of Latin reference books in print in early modern Europe. She explores in detail the sophisticated and sometimes idiosyncratic techniques that scholars and readers developed in an era of new technology and exploding information. “Staggering in its scope and impressive in its erudition, Too Much to Know offers the first general account of both the causes and cures of ‘information overload’ in Western culture.”—William Sherman, University of York
Ann M. Blair is Henry Charles Lea Professor of History, Harvard University.

History 33

Cuban Fiestas
Roberto González Echevarría In the Cuban town of Sagua la Grande, a young Roberto González Echevarría peers out the window of his family home on the morning of the Nochebuena fiesta as preparations begin for the slaughter of a feast day pig. The author recalls ‘watching them at a distance, though thinking, fearing, that once I grew older I would have to participate in the whole event’. Now an acclaimed scholar of Latin American literature, González Echevarría returns to the rituals that defined his young life in Cuban Fiestas. Drawing from art, literature, film and even the national sport of baseball, he vividly reveals the fiesta as a dynamic force of both destruction and renewal in the life of a people. Roberto González Echevarría masterfully exposes the distinctive elements of the fiesta cubana that give depth and coherence to more than two centuries of Cuban cultural life. Reaching back to nineteenthcentury traditions of Cuban art and literature, and augmenting them, in the twentieth, with the arts of narrative, the esthetic performances of sport and entertainment in nightclubs, on the baseball diamond and in movie theatres, Cuban Fiestas renders the lilting strains of the fiesta and drum beats of the passage of time keys to understanding the dynamic quality of Cuban culture. González Echevarría’s explorations are also illuminated by autobiographical vignettes that unveil the ever-shifting impact of the fiesta on the author’s own story of exile and return.

The Havana Habit
Gustavo Pérez Firmat Cuba, an island 750 miles long, with a population of about 11 million, lies less than 100 miles off the U.S. coast. Yet the island’s influences on America’s cultural imagination are extensive and deeply ingrained. In the engaging and wide-ranging The Havana Habit, writer and scholar Gustavo Pérez Firmat probes the importance of Havana, and of greater Cuba, in the cultural history of the United States. Through books, advertisements, travel guides, films and music, he demonstrates the influence of the island on almost two centuries of American life. From John Quincy Adams’s comparison of Cuba to an apple ready to drop into America’s lap, to the latest episodes in the lives of the ‘comic comandantes and exotic exiles’, and to such notable Cuban exports as the rumba and the mambo, cigars and mojitos, the Cuba that emerges from these pages is a locale that Cubans and Americans have jointly imagined and inhabited. The Havana Habit deftly illustrates what makes Cuba, as Pérez Firmat writes, ‘so near and yet so foreign’.
A poet, fiction writer, memoirist and scholar, Gustavo Pérez Firmat is the David Feinson Professor of Humanities at Columbia University. Pérez Firmat is the author of eighteen books; his study of Cuban American culture, Life on the Hyphen, was awarded the Eugene M. Kayden University Press National Book Award.

Lenin’s Jewish Question
Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern In this first examination of Lenin’s genealogical and political connections to East European Jews, Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern reveals the broad cultural meanings of indisputable evidence that Lenin’s maternal grandfather was a Jew. He examines why and how Lenin’s Jewish relatives converted to Christianity, explains how Lenin’s vision of Russian Marxism shaped his identity, and explores Lenin’s treatment of party colleagues of Jewish origin and the Jewish Question in Europe. Petrovsky-Shtern also uncovers the continuous efforts of the Soviet communists to suppress Lenin’s Jewishness and the no less persistent attempts of Russian extremists to portray Lenin as a Jew. In this fascinating book, Petrovsky-Shtern expands our understanding not only of Lenin, but also of Russian and Soviet handling of the Jewish Question.

Belonging and Genocide
Hitler’s Community, 1918–1945
Thomas Kühne No one has ever posed a satisfactory explanation for the extreme inhumanity of the Holocaust. What enabled millions of Germans to perpetrate or condone the murder of the Jews? In this illuminating book, Thomas Kühne offers a provocative answer. In addition to the hatred of Jews or coercion that created a genocidal society, he contends, the desire for a united ‘people’s community’ made Germans conform and join together in mass crime. Exploring private letters, diaries, memoirs, secret reports, trial records and other documents, the author shows how the Nazis used such common human needs as community, belonging and solidarity to forge a nation conducting the worst crime in history. “This is a gripping, even splendid book, synthesizing a breathtaking amount of material.”—Margaret Lavinia Anderson, University of California, Berkeley
Thomas Kühne is Strassler Professor of Holocaust History at the Strassler Family Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Clark University.

The Settlers
And the Struggle over the Meaning of Zionism
Gadi Taub The controversy over settlements in the occupied territories is a far more intractable problem for Israel than is widely perceived, Gadi Taub observes in this illuminating book. The clash over settlement is no mere policy disagreement, but rather a struggle over the very meaning of Zionism. The book presents an absorbing study of religious settlers’ ideology and how it has evolved in response to Israel’s history of wars, peace efforts, assassination, the pull-out from Gaza and other tumultuous events. Taub tracks the efforts of religious settlers to reconcile with mainstream Zionism but concludes that the project cannot succeed.

Modernism in Crisis: James Frazer Stirling
Anthony Vidler
The British architect James Frazer Stirling (1924–1992) stimulated impassioned responses among both supporters and detractors, and continues to be the subject of fierce debate. He earned renown through such innovative—and frequently controversial—projects as the Leicester University Engineering building (1959–63); the History Faculty building at Cambridge University (1964–67); the Neue Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart (1977–84); the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain (1984); and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard University (1979–84). Stirling was also a visiting professor at the Yale School of Architecture where he trained and influenced many of the current leaders in the field.

100 Dresses
The Costume Institute / The Metropolitan Museum of Art Preface by Harold Koda This book is an irresistible look into more than 300 years of fashion. Here, for the first time ever, are 100 fabulous gowns from the permanent collection of the renowned Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, each of which is a reminder of the ways fashion reflects the broader culture that created it. Featuring designs by Paul Poiret, Coco Chanel, Madame Grès, Yves Saint Laurent, Gianni Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and many others, this one-of-a-kind collection presents a stunning variety of garments. Ranging from the buttoned-up gowns of the late 17th century to the cutting-edge designs of the early 21st, the dresses provide a vivid picture of the sensibilities and excesses of each era while providing a vivid picture of how styles have changed—sometimes radically—over the years. A late 1600s wool dress with a surprising splash of silver thread; a large-bustled red satin dress from the 1800s; a short, shimmery 1920s dancing dress; a glamorous 1950s cocktail dress; a 1960s minidress—each tells a story about its period and serves as a testament to the enduring ingenuity of the fashion designer’s art. Images of the dresses are accompanied by informative text and enhanced by close-up details as well as runway photos, fashion plates, works of art and portraits of designers. A glossary of related terms is also included.

Harold Koda is Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand
Masterworks from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Malcolm Daniel Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and Paul Strand are among the most famous photographers of the 20th century. This handsome volume showcases for the first time The Metropolitan Museum’s extraordinarily rich holdings of works by these diverse and groundbreaking masters. A passionate advocate for photography and modern art promoted through his ‘Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession’ and his sumptuous journal Camera Work, Stieglitz was also a photographer of real accomplishment. Featured works by Stieglitz include portraits, landscapes, city views and cloud studies, along with photographs from Stieglitz’s composite portrait of Georgia O’Keeffe. Perhaps best known as a fashion photographer, celebrity portraitist and MoMA curator, Steichen was, at the turn of the century, Stieglitz’s man in Paris, gallery collaborator and most talented exemplar of Photo-Secessionist photography. Steichen’s three large variant prints of The Flatiron and his moonlit photographs of Rodin’s Balzac are highlighted here. Marking a pivotal moment in the course of photography, the final issue of Camera Work was devoted to the young Paul Strand, whose photographs from 1915 and 1916 treated three principal themes— movement in the city, abstractions and street portraits—and pioneered a shift from the soft-focus Pictorialist aesthetic to the straight approach and graphic power of an emerging modernism. This book reproduces Strand’s rare platinum prints, popularly known as Camera Work photogravures.

In Giacometti’s Studio
Michael Peppiatt This deeply engaging book introduces the reader to the creative chaos of the tiny Parisian studio of the great sculptor Alberto Giacometti, from the moment he and his brother, Diego, arrived in 1927, with all their possessions in a wheelbarrow, until Alberto’s death in 1966. Michael Peppiatt relates how the artist first worked there as a member of the Surrealist movement and then how he gradually made his mark on Paris’s artistic, literary and intellectual worlds. After an enforced wartime exile in Geneva in a miserable hotel, he returned to Paris and to the same broken-down little shed of a studio behind Montparnasse where he struggled to realise his pared-down vision of mankind and which became a magnet for many of the great artists and writers of the time (from Picasso and Braque to Balthus, from Breton and Genet to Beckett). Peppiatt prefaces his story with a poignant, personal narrative of how as a young man he arrived in Paris with an introduction from Francis Bacon to Giacometti; the encounter was forestalled by the artist’s very recent death, but Peppiatt instead got to know the key people in Giacometti’s world. He explains how the studio, now dismantled, seems to be both Giacometti’s most important artwork, encompassing countless complete or unfinished works, and the archive of years of struggle. With Giacometti’s death, it became his greatest achievement, containing as it did the traces of a lifetime’s search for truth. This vivid exploration of one of the most evocative and influential spaces in 20th-century art connects us with both a unique career and an entire, outstanding moment in French culture.

Michael Peppiatt is a leading authority on Giacometti and Francis Bacon. He is the author of, among many works, Alberto Giacometti in Postwar Paris and Francis Bacon in the 1950s.

Blinky Palermo
Retrospective 1964–77 Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Lynne Cooke, Suzanne Hudson, Susanne Küper and James Lawrence The first retrospective in the U.S. to feature German artist Blinky Palermo (1943–1977) includes more than 60 works. This beautifully illustrated volume spans the breadth of Palermo’s brief but significant career and explores each phase, beginning with objects and paintings created shortly after he graduated from Joseph Beuys’s class at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in the early 1960s and culminating with paintings he produced during his last years in both Germany and New York City. Palermo’s oeuvre is customarily divided into four principal groupings: the Objects; the Cloth Pictures (Stoffbilder), the in situ Wall Paintings and Drawings and the late Metal Pictures, including the epic To the People of New York City, now in the collection of Dia Art Foundation. Blinky Palermo also addresses the artist’s works on paper, including watercolours, sketches, preparatory studies and prints that he made throughout his career.

Rodin
Sex and the Making of Modern Sculpture David J. Getsy During his lifetime, Auguste Rodin’s name became synonymous with modern sculpture. It also became linked with sex. ‘Desire! What a formidable stimulant’, he once remarked. Rodin came to emphasise the importance of desire and the sexual as the markers of his individual perspective, using them to fuel his increasingly daring treatments of the nude. Bodily passion became the primary means through which he sought to make sculpture evocative, expressive and universally appealing. Concurrently, Rodin staged his own acts of making through the manipulation of sculptural techniques, prompting viewers to imagine the scenes of the creation of his objects in his studio. In the minds of many viewers, the dramatic and activated surfaces of his sculptures came to be seen as evidence of not just a sculptor’s touch but a lover’s touch as well.
David J. Getsy is the Goldabelle McComb Finn Distinguished Chair in Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is the author of Body Doubles: Sculpture in Britain, 1877–1905, published by Yale.

September 192 pp. 210x150mm. 90 b/w + 30 colour illus. ISBN 978-0-300-16725-2 £25.00*

David Getsy examines these developments by focusing on two pivotal moments in Rodin’s career: first, 1876, the year his work is catalysed through an engagement with Michelangelo; and, second, 1900, the year of the one-person exhibition that catapulted him to international public notoriety. This fascinating book makes a case for reconsidering the terms of Rodin’s influence, arguing that the sculptor placed renewed emphasis on the materiality and objecthood of sculpture as a means of asserting his own desire’s inseparability from his works. In his compelling analysis of this practice, Getsy offers a critical account of the origins of modern sculpture and how sex became a key term in Rodin’s making of it.

Kurt Schwitters
Color and Collage
Isabel Schulz • Introduction by Josef Helfenstein and Isabel Schulz Essays by Isabel Schulz, Leah Dickerman and Gwendolen Webster Chronology by Clare Elliott

Best known for his extraordinary abstract collages, German artist Kurt Schwitters (1887–1948) is one of the most influential figures of the international avant-garde. Placing special emphasis on the significance of colour and light in the artist’s work and delving into the relationship between collage and painting, this lavishly illustrated volume accompanies the first U.S. retrospective of the artist’s oeuvre in twenty-five years. Affiliated with the Dadaist and Constructivist movements in the years following World War I, he coined the term ‘merz’ to describe his life’s ambition to ‘make connections, preferably between everything in the world’. Schwitters’s merz gave seemingly worthless objects—train tickets, newspaper fragments, bits of wire—new life as compositional elements in his installations, assemblages, sculptures and collages. Hoping to unify life and art by incorporating everyday objects into his work, this pioneer of installation art came closest to his ideal with Merzbau, a room-size walk-in sculpture constructed of found materials.

Michelangelo Pistoletto
From One to Many, 1956–1974
Edited by Carlos Basualdo • With contributions by Carlos Basualdo, Jean-François Chevrier, Claire Gilman, Gabriele Guercio, Suzanne Penn and Angela Vettese

One of Europe’s most influential contemporary artists, Michelangelo Pistoletto (born 1933) has persistently investigated and expanded the role of the spectator in art since the 1950s through painting, sculpture and performance. His present standing as an inspirational figure among younger artists is a testament to the innovative vitality that characterises all his work, from early paintings and leadership in the Arte Povera movement to his influence on current participatory artistic practices. This handsomely illustrated book features works created from 1956 to 1974, many never exhibited in the United States, as well as a selection of the artist’s writings. Contributors to the book discuss the context of Pistoletto’s art, including the social and artistic climate of Turin in the 1950s and the relationship between his work and American Pop art, conceptual art, minimalism and post-minimalism.

Salvador Dalí
The Late Work Elliott H. King, Montse Aguer Teixidor, Hank Hine and William Jeffett Salvador Dalí was one of the most famous and controversial artists of the 20th century. Although he was prolific for more than sixty years, the nearly universal current critical judgment is that his work reached its zenith in the early 1930s, when he was affiliated with the Surrealist movement. The forty years of work executed after 1940 is often seen as repetitious, reactionary and overly commercialised. Such criticisms mainly arose from his 1941 reinvention of himself as a ‘classicist’, his embrace of Catholicism and his support for General Franco—postures that distanced him from notions of modernism and the avant-garde. This handsomely illustrated volume focuses on Dalí’s work after 1940, presenting it as a multifaceted oeuvre that simultaneously drew inspiration from the Old Masters and the contemporary world. Beginning in the late 1930s with the transition from Dalí’s well-known Surrealist canvases to the classicism he announced in 1941, the volume traces the artist’s work in illustration, fashion and theatre, predating commercial ventures by such celebrity artists as Andy Warhol.

Gabriel Metsu
Edited by Adriaan Waiboer Gabriel Metsu (1625–67) employed an unusual variety of styles, techniques and subjects, making him a particularly difficult artist to characterise. From his early days in Leiden until his death in Amsterdam at the height of his career, his unparalleled mastery of the brush allowed him to paint a remarkable range of history paintings, portraits, still lifes, but most of all, exquisite genre paintings. And whatever his subject matter, his work reveals an unrivalled talent for imbuing figures with a human and personable character. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Metsu held a place as one of the most celebrated painters of the Dutch Golden Age, and his works were acquired for noble collections throughout Europe, while his contemporary Johannes Vermeer was almost unheard of. In the twentieth century their positions were reversed as Vermeer’s reputation soared. This enlightening book resituates Metsu as one of the leading genre painters of his time. It offers a portrait of the age through his patrons and his wide network of contacts and colleagues in Amsterdam, as well as analysis of Metsu’s technique as a draftsman and as a painter, and it documents the fashions and fabrics of the time through his work.

John Singer Sargent
Figures and Landscapes, 1883–1899 The Complete Paintings Volume 5 Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray The fifth volume of the John Singer Sargent catalogue raisonné encompasses a remarkably productive span in the beloved American painter’s life. The young artist moved from Paris to London during this period and successfully ignited his career as a portraitist, and this time also marked his experimentation with Impressionist techniques. These pages contain the first detailed account of Sargent’s relationship with Claude Monet, including letters—most published for the first time here—from the artist to the great Impressionist. This exquisitely illustrated volume also covers the period when Sargent journeyed to Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Spain, North Africa and Italy in search of inspiration for a mural cycle commissioned by the Boston Public Library. The works he painted as source material included here stand in stark contrast to the sensuous, painterly exercises of the early and mideighties, underlining his versatility and artistic reach. As in the previous volumes in this series, the images in this book are reproduced in full colour and documented in depth, with complete provenance, exhibition history and bibliography, and are accompanied by relevant studies and related drawings.
A great-nephew of John Singer Sargent, Richard Ormond is a Sargent scholar and an art historian. Elaine Kilmurray is research director of the Sargent catalogue raisonné.

Hendrick Avercamp
Master of the Ice Scene Edited by Pieter Roelofs Hendrick Avercamp (1585–1634) was the first artist to specialise in painting winter landscapes that feature people enjoying themselves on the ice. Scenes of skating, sleigh rides and outdoor games on frozen canals and waterways bring to life the energetic pastimes and day-today bustle of the Golden Age. He made the ‘ice scene’ a genre in its own right. Within these winter scenes there is also a social narrative: unencumbered by status, all classes formed one community on the ice, where they went about their daily business and celebrated the delights of the winter conditions. For the first time in many years this virtuoso artist receives the attention he deserves. The authors explore every aspect of Avercamp’s work, from the weather conditions prevalent at the time to details of the clothes worn by the figures in his crowded scenes. Avercamp was also an outstanding draftsman who made individual figure studies that he utilised not only in his painted work but also in compositional drawings. This beautiful book introduces Avercamp to a broad general audience and offers a much-needed contribution to the study of his work.

Cottages and Villas
The Birth of the Garden Suburb
Mireille Galinou The garden suburb has its origins in London, and, contrary to wide-spread belief, its earliest phase took place not at the beginning of the twentieth century, with the much discussed garden-city movement, but one century earlier, with the creation of the Eyre brothers’ villa estate in the London suburb of St John’s Wood. This fascinating book provides the first detailed, accurate and well-illustrated account of the Eyre Estate. Drawing on the resources of the newly catalogued Eyre archive, it offers an authoritative interpretation of the development and management of this pioneering estate from the eighteenth century onwards. As the first ‘garden quarter’ of Britain, the genesis and realisation of the Eyre Estate involved vision, entrepreneurship and formidable negotiation and organisational skills. The Eyre family, their circle of business partners, architects and builders created an environment within which villas and landmark buildings—secular and religious—offered a haven for artists, professionals and those who required discreet housing for less respectable purposes.

Decorating the ‘Godly’ Household
Religious Art in Post-Reformation Britain
Tara Hamling The Reformation is generally regarded as a calamitous episode in the history of British art, with the rich artistic heritage of the medieval period eradicated and replaced by an austere Protestant culture of the word. This compelling new study presents a wealth of visual evidence to argue that religious subject matter was common in the arts of Protestant Britain. Tara Hamling examines decorative features from historic houses throughout England and Scotland and identifies a significant but overlooked trend in the history of British art. She reveals a widespread fashion for large-scale religious imagery in houses owned by the gentry and prosperous middle classes during the period 1560–1660. The book is illustrated with narrative imagery in wall painting, plasterwork, carved wood and stone and objects including furniture, textiles and ceramics. The character of this ‘decorative’ art is explored in relation to the functions of rooms in the domestic interior with a focus on how religious imagery might inform and support spiritual activities taking place within the home. The visual evidence throughout the book is supported by extracts from contemporary texts. Far from being hostile towards images, many Protestant patrons continued to commission traditional religious art to decorate their houses. While the choice of materials, forms and iconography represents a degree of continuity with the pre-Reformation past, the imagery was modified to remove objectionable elements and used to support Protestant habits of thought and behaviour.
Tara Hamling is a RCUK / Roberts Research Fellow in the Department of History, University of Birmingham, and a Fellow of the Shakespeare Institute.

The Waters of Rome
Aqueducts, Fountains, and the Birth of the Baroque City
Katherine Wentworth Rinne In this pioneering study of the water infrastructure of Renaissance Rome, urban historian Katherine Rinne offers a new understanding of how technological and scientific developments in aqueduct and fountain architecture helped turn medieval Rome into the preeminent city of early modern Europe. Supported by the author’s extensive topographical research, this book presents a unified vision of the city that links improvements to public and private water systems with political, religious and social change. Between 1560 and 1630, Rome’s religious and civil authorities sponsored the construction of aqueducts, fountains for drinking, washing and industry and the magnificent ceremonial fountains that are Rome’s glory. Tying together the technological, sociopolitical and artistic questions that faced the designers, Rinne shows how these public projects transformed Rome in a marriage of innovative engineering and urban planning.

The first substantial study of the subject to appear in over half a century, it explores not only the physical aspects of these buildings, but church-going activities from the cradle to the grave, ranging from how congregations were accommodated and how vicars lived, to how the finances were organised and musical events were arranged. Terry Friedman guides the reader through the church, identifying its various components along the way, and confronts such issues as the use of authentic colour and the worship of images (with special attention to pictorial painted glass). He describes the multifarious causes of rebuilding and new-builds—decay, destruction by storms and fire, etc.—the contributions of architects, builders and craft persons, and the construction and maintenance of the fabric of the buildings.
Terry Friedman is one of the leading historians of eighteenth-century British architecture and the author of James Gibbs and The Georgian Parish Church: ‘Monuments to Posterity’.

Friedman also traces the progress of Gothic and how it was expressed in hundreds of churches up and down the country, and discusses hitherto disregarded aspects such as the revival of Romanesque and the idiosyncratic hybridisation of Gothic and Classical in the same building (the ‘Bastard Breed’). The Classical tradition is treated in separate, distinct categories: the Baroque of Antique temple forms; the persistence of Palladian, Jonesian, Wrenian and Gibbsian patterns; the emergence and development of Neoclassicism in the works of Adam, Chambers, Dance, Stuart and others; and the dazzling example of Greenwich Hospital Chapel. In addition, fully documented, chronologically sequenced design and construction histories of 272 key ecclesiastical buildings are presented on an accompanying CD-Rom.

Hampshire: Winchester and the North
The Buildings of England
Michael Bullen, John Crook, Rodney Hubbuck and Nikolaus Pevsner The northern half of Hampshire covers territory ranging from the rolling chalk downland of the Test and Itchen valleys to the Wealden edge and the heathlands at the borders with Surrey and Berkshire. Winchester is not only unrivalled for medieval architecture but like many of the smaller towns, such as Alton and Alresford, has some of the most charming streets in the southern counties. The countryside is rich in small villages, with buildings of a delightful mix of timber-framing, brick, flint and tile, and an abundance of houses and gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement. There are fine country houses of every period, from the quiet grandeur of The Vyne to the Victorian showpiece of Highclere Castle. But the area also has late twentieth-century architecture of great distinction, much of it by the county’s own architects, and several monuments of unique interest, from Jane Austen’s house at Chawton, to the spectacular French Imperial mausoleum at Farnborough Abbey and Stanley Spencer’s moving series of war paintings for the chapel at Burghclere.
Michael Bullen is an architectural historian working as a conservation officer in Hampshire. John Crook is an architectural historian, archaeological consultant and photographer. Rodney Hubbuck lived in Petersfield for many years and has a special interest in the architecture and stained glass of the South and South West. Nikolaus Pevsner (1902–83) founded the Buildings of England series.

Cumbria
The Buildings of England
Matthew Hyde This fully revised volume brings together the historic counties of Cumberland and Westmorland with the old Furness division of Lancashire in a comprehensive architectural guide to one of England’s most varied and rewarding regions. At its heart is the Lake District, where the well-loved vernacular architecture is overlaid by centuries of buildings, Georgian to modern, that respond in diverse ways to the magnificent landscape. The less familiar areas outside the National Park have an equal fascination, with numerous historic towns, spectacular industrial monuments, and distinctive traditions of church-building and fortified great houses. Fine Victorian and Arts-and-Crafts architecture can be found throughout, much of it published here for the first time.
Matthew Hyde is an architectural historian based in northwest England. He is coauthor of Lancashire: Manchester and the South-East and the forthcoming Cheshire in the Buildings of England series. Nikolaus Pevsner (1902–83) founded the Buildings of England series.

Johan Zoffany
1733–1810
Mary Webster Universally recognised as a brilliant and gifted eighteenth-century artist, Zoffany was regarded by Horace Walpole as one of the three greatest painters in England, along with his friends Reynolds and Gainsborough. He has remained without a detailed study of his life and works owing to the fascinating and complex vicissitudes of his career, now established from widely scattered sources. Starting out as a late-baroque painter at a German princely court, he moved to London in 1760 and soon became a leading portraitist. A loyal patron was the great actor David Garrick through whom Zoffany became admired as the unrivalled interpreter of the Georgian stage. The delightful inventions of his conversation pieces led to his swift rise into the royal patronage of George III and Queen Charlotte. Sent by the queen to paint the celebrated Tribuna of the Uffizi in Florence, Zoffany while there received commissions from the Empress Maria Theresa for family portraits which took him to Vienna and Parma. Back in London but out of favour with the fashionable world, he left for Bengal. Portraying the Anglo-Indian society of Calcutta, then the glittering court of the Nawab of Lucknow, he developed a serious interest in Indian life and landscape. His fortune made, he returned, but continued painting pictures of India, theatrical scenes and portraits, turning in old age to attack the bloody progress of the French revolution.
Mary Webster was formerly at the Warburg Institute and curator of the College Art Collections at University College London.

Above the Battlefield
British Modernism and the Peace Movement, 1900–1918
Grace Brockington This book explores the role of artists and writers in the formation of a modern, secular peace movement in Britain, and the impact of ideas about ‘positive peace’ on their artistic practice. Previous studies have focused on the violence implicit in modernism, and on the disintegration of the avant-garde in Britain at the outbreak of war, but Grace Brockington argues that ‘pacifist modernism’ flourished before 1914, and that it survived during the war through a network of dissident cultural communities. Two such groupings—Bloomsbury, and a previously unrecognised circle of artists, writers and performers based around the Margaret Morris Theatre in Chelsea—are the focus of this study. Brockington reveals the expectation of an international cultural Renaissance that motivated the Edwardian avant-garde, and that militated against conflict in 1914. She refutes the assumption that the Bloomsburies failed during the war, whether in their duty to their country, or as a force for change. Rather, she argues that they demonstrated an active, principled and audaciously public commitment to pacifism. Her analysis of the Chelsea circle draws on a wealth of new material about experimental performance during the war, overturning the convention that avant-garde theatre was moribund after 1914.
Grace Brockington is Lecturer in History of Art, University of Bristol.

Walter Crane
The Arts and Crafts, Painting and Politics, 1875–1890
Morna O’Neill Walter Crane (1845–1915) was one of the most important, versatile and radical artists of the nineteenth century: a painter, decorator, designer, book illustrator, poet, author, teacher, art theorist and socialist. Crane’s astonishingly diverse body of work challenged the establishment, artistically and politically. In this original and carefully researched new study, Morna O’Neill presents a fascinating portrait of an artist who used his talent and energy to dismantle the traditional boundaries between fine art and decorative art, between elite and popular, between art and propaganda. Crane’s enduring influence is felt on many levels, and significant new research in this book uncovers the magnificent breadth of his artistic practice. The finest book illustrator of the Victorian era, he revolutionised that field. A friend and associate of William Morris, his work embodied Arts and Crafts ideals. A lifelong political radical, he invented the iconography of English socialism. By reconsidering his politics and reintegrating it with his art, Crane emerges in this book as a unique figure, an artist who translated ‘art for art’s sake’ into ‘art for all’.
Morna O’Neill is Mellon Assistant Professor of Nineteenth-Century European Art, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee.

Van Eyck to Gossaert
Towards a Northern Renaissance
Susan Frances Jones Objects of beauty and prestige with their rich colour and fine detail, early Netherlandish oil paintings were among the most sought-after works of the Renaissance. Beginning in the early fifteenth century with Jan van Eyck, and ending in the early sixteenth century with the career of Pieter Bruegel, Susan Frances Jones explores the roles played by paintings in political, domestic, religious and secular contexts, during this gloriously innovative period. She draws on the National Gallery’s remarkable research into materials and techniques to describe how painters’ working and creative practices changed and shifted, and examines whether Northern European artists, like some of their Italian counterparts, laid claim to intellectual as well as artistic sophistication.

Erika Langmuir What is still life? We are familiar with the objects portrayed but have difficulty explaining the essence of this popular art form. Erika Langmuir examines the special fascination of still life, and what distinguishes it from other categories of painting. She discusses its evolution from the trompe l’oeil wall paintings of antiquity, through its revival in the age of Caravaggio and Velázquez, and again in the works of Cézanne and Picasso. Originally published as Pocket Guide Still Life, this eloquent survey benefits from a wider format, new reproductions and updated references.

Bridget Riley: Arcadia
Colin Wiggins with Marla Prather For 50 years Bridget Riley has been regarded as Britain’s most important abstract painter, renowned for her large abstract paintings, with their complex, repetitive geometric shapes and undulating linear patterns. Given the graphic nature of these works, it is fascinating to discover that Riley sees her decidedly modern paintings as following in an Old Master pictorial tradition. This affinity stems from her lifelong passion for paintings in the National Gallery, London, with which she has a long association: first as a young student and copyist and later as a Trustee. In 1989 Riley was honoured with an exhibition, The Artist’s Eye. Bridget Riley: Arcadia will mark the artist’s long engagement with the National Gallery. Colin Wiggins explains with great clarity and enthusiasm how the fluid lines of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, together with their palette of ochres, salmon, greens and light blues translate into the abstracted shapes that appear in Riley’s paintings. Marla Prather looks at how the techniques and methods of modern masters such as Cézanne, Seurat and Matisse also act as an important influence in her paintings. This catalogue and DVD accompany the National Gallery exhibition Bridget Riley: Arcadia which opens on 16 November 2010.

Venice: Canaletto and his Rivals
Charles Beddington
with a contribution by Amanda Bradley

View painting in eighteenth-century Venice began with the emergence of Luca Carlevarijs and ended with the death of Francesco Guardi in 1793, followed by Napoleon’s invasion and the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797. In between, a constellation of remarkable painters captured the city in dazzling pictures which are among the greatest achievements in eighteenth-century art. Canaletto may be the artist popularly associated with Venice, but he had many rivals who competed for commissions, often from foreigners whose patronage was to determine the later course of Venetian view painting. All the major figures are represented here—Bellotto, Carlevarijs, Guardi, Joli, Marieschi and Vanvitelli—together with fascinating contemporaries such as Cimaroli and Tironi.

Contemporary British Studio Ceramics
Annie Carlano In Britain today the output of excellent ceramics seems more eclectic than elsewhere. This stylish and wide-ranging survey comprises examples of clay art by one hundred major artists, covering the period from the late 1980s through 2009. Drawn from the Diane and Marc Grainer Collection, it includes works by Alison Britton, Edmund de Waal, Kate Malone, Grayson Perry, Julian Stair, Steve Dixon and Nick Arroyave-Portela, among others. The selection balances functional objects and sculpture; hand-built, thrown and moulded techniques; varieties of scale and colour; and cerebral and emotional content. All the ceramics here are rooted in the materiality of clay. The properties of the raw material, from its soft, malleable texture to the alchemy of slips and glazes, are at the core of the artists’ passion. And, as the text reveals, the younger generation is moving into new directions of art practice. Exhibition Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte, NC, 1 October 2010 – 13 March 2011

Gloria F. Ross and Modern Tapestry
Ann Lane Hedlund • Foreword by Grace Glueck Gloria Ross (1923–1998) described her work as the translation of paint into wool. She was deeply committed to reinventing the centuries-old art of tapestry, particularly championing the handmade in contemporary art. This remarkable book draws from rare unpublished archives to unravel the evolution of Ross’s modern tapestries and to illuminate the significance of her creative partnerships. The book features the collaborative work of 28 acclaimed modernist painters and sculptors, including Helen Frankenthaler (Ross’s sister), Kenneth Noland and Louise Nevelson, with several dozen traditional-yet-innovative weavers in France, Scotland and the Southwestern United States. Brief biographies of the artists, letters, notes, sketches and photographs illustrate the practical and aesthetic challenges that occupied Gloria Ross for over three decades.
Ann Lane Hedlund is curator of ethnology at the Arizona State Museum and professor of anthropology at the University of Arizona.

Sheila Hicks 50 Years
Joan Simon and Whitney Chadwick • Introduction by Susan C. Faxon Sheila Hicks (born 1934) is a pioneering artist noted for objects and public commissions whose structures are built of colour and fibre. This highly anticipated volume accompanies the first major retrospective of Hicks’s work; it documents the remarkable versatility and dramatically divergent scale of her textiles as well as her distinctive use, and surprising range, of materials. The book includes essays that analyse the progression of Hicks’s art, technique and modes of working. Among other topics, they examine the artist’s relationship to the ‘expanded fields’ of the ‘new sculpture’ and the ‘new tapestry’ beginning in the 1960s, the reclamation of craft as subject and technique for artists in many media, the influences of international cultures, and the aesthetic, pedagogical, conceptual and historical framework from which Hicks’s work has developed. It reveals the full extent of Hicks’s work, from miniature weavings to major sculptural pieces to such large-scale commissions as The Four Seasons of Fuji. Lavishly illustrated, Sheila Hicks 50 Years demonstrates that Hicks’s pioneering work with textiles has embraced yet reinvented tradition, successfully navigating the terrain between art, design and architecture.

Cloisonné
Chinese Enamels from the Ming and Qing Dynasties
Edited by Béatrice Quette The technique of applying brilliant enamel ornament to metalwork, known as cloisonné, reached its peak in China from the fourteenth century on. This sumptuously illustrated survey, which accompanies an exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center, situates these remarkable pieces in their context with a survey of the historical, political and sociological milieu in China during the period. Research recently undertaken in China and published here for the first time has resulted in the redating of a number of objects with significant implications for the overview of Chinese cloisonné production. Shapes, functions, pattern and symbolism in cloisonné objects are all examined and explored. And the final section of the book reviews the impact of developments in China on later production in Europe, as well as the acquisition of cloisonné pieces by the major American museums and private collectors at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement
Kevin W. Tucker With essays by Beverly K. Brandt, David Cathers, Joseph Cunningham and Beth Ann and Tommy McPherson With its emphasis on social reform and simplicity in design—bold lines, the honest use of materials and the redeeming qualities of handmade goods—the Arts and Crafts movement offered an antidote to the perceived ills of a rapidly changing world and the ornate and artificial Victorian aesthetic of the late 19th century. In the first years of the 20th century, the movement was popularised in the United States through the efforts of Gustav Stickley (1858–1942), a businessman who promoted a progressive American style and the ideal of the simple life through the efforts of his furniture factory and publication, The Craftsman. Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement accompanies the first American touring exhibition of Stickley’s work and explores his dual roles as a visionary business leader and enthusiastic proselytiser of design reform. The full range of Stickley’s workshops is illuminated, including more than 100 objects of furniture, metalwork and textiles, as well as architectural drawings and related designs, many of which are previously unpublished. Essays by distinguished contributors provide diverse viewpoints on the Arts and Crafts movement and Stickley’s evolving role as tastemaker, and the often contradictory messages conveyed through the construction and promotion of his designers’ works.

How to Read Greek Vases
Joan R. Mertens How is it possible today to gain insight into the culture that flourished in ancient Greece over 2,500 years ago? Works of art are eloquent intermediaries.This generously illustrated volume provides an introduction to the painted pottery that served specific utilitarian functions and that afforded outstanding artists a medium for depicting their gods and heroes and the details of daily existence. The key to understanding the rich language of the Greek vase is tuning into the interrelation of its function, shape, technique and subject matter. Notable examples from the Metropolitan Museum’s exceptional collection reveal the variety and vitality of the refined forms and masterfully rendered scenes that characterise these engaging works of ancient Greek art.

Tutankhamun’s Funeral
Herbert E. Winlock Introduction/Appendix by Dorothea Arnold In 1907, more than a decade before the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, archaeologists unearthed remains from the mummification and funeral of the pharaoh, who ruled ancient Egypt in the 14th century B.C. Now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, these materials provide physical evidence of burial rites of the now-legendary king. Tutankhamun’s Funeral includes a classic text written in 1941 by Herbert E. Winlock, one of the early 20th century’s leading Egyptologists, featuring in-depth analysis of the objects and their significance. In addition, an introduction and appendix by Dorothea Arnold update the findings with recent scholarship. The book is illustrated throughout with new colour photography as well as many historical images and drawings. Exhibition The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 16 March – 6 September 2010
Herbert E. Winlock was Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, prior to that, he headed the Department of Egyptian Art. Dorothea Arnold is Lila Acheson Wallace Chairman, Department of Egyptian Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

From Xanadu to Dadu
The World of Khubilai Khan
Edited by James C. Y. Watt In 1215, the year Khubilai Khan was born, the Mongols made their first major incursion into North China and initiated a period of extraordinary creativity in the arts that was encouraged by the confluence of many cultures and ethnic groups. From Xanadu to Dadu is a groundbreaking study of the art and culture produced at this time by the Chinese and by the highly skilled craftsmen from Western and Central Asia, who were selected for their abilities and brought together in Northern Chinese workshops, where they exchanged ideas, styles and art forms.

Paul Thek
Diver, A Retrospective
Elisabeth Sussman and Lynn Zelevansky With contributions by George Baker, David Breslin, Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, Eleonara Nagy, Susanne Neubauer, Michael Nickel, Scott Rothkopf and Ann Wilson An American sculptor, painter and installation artist, Paul Thek (1933–1988) is primarily known for hyper-realistic works of human body parts executed in fleshlike latex and for his strongly symbolic, room-size installations constructed from transitory materials. A major figure on the 1960s New York art scene, Thek also spent time in Europe. Although he gained a large following and was featured in more than one hundred solo and group exhibitions, the antiestablishment ‘artist’s artist’ was practically forgotten at the time of his death. Published to accompany Thek’s first retrospective in the United States, this publication includes nearly 300 illustrations of sculptures, paintings, prints and other works featured in the exhibition as well as four ‘in-depth’ image sections focusing on key installations. Pages from the artist’s journals and a selection of documentary photographs, illuminate Thek’s artistic aesthetic and production process. With a bibliography, exhibition history and checklist of works in the exhibition, this overdue acknowledgment of Thek’s brief, but broad-reaching career will be the authoritative volume on the artist for years to come.

Donald Judd
Specifics David Raskin This pioneering book, the first scholarly monograph devoted to Donald Judd, addresses the whole breadth of Judd’s practices. Drawing on documents found in nearly twenty archives, David Raskin explains why some of Judd’s works of art seem startlingly ephemeral while others remain insistently physical. In the process of answering this previously perplexing question, Raskin traces Judd’s principles from his beginnings as an art critic through his fabulous installations and designs in Marfa, Texas. He discusses Judd’s early important paintings and idiosyncratic red objects, as well as the three-dimensional works that are celebrated throughout the world. He also examines Judd’s commitment to empirical values and his political activism, and concludes by considering the importance of Judd’s example for recent art.

Ultimately, Raskin develops a picture of Judd as never before seen: he shows us an artist who asserted his individuality with spare designs; who found spiritual values in plywood, Plexiglas and industrial production; who refused to distinguish between thinking and feeling while asserting that science marked the limits of knowledge; who claimed that his art provided intuitions of morality but not a specific set of tenets; and who worked for political causes that were neither left nor right.

Chinati
The Vision of Donald Judd Marianne Stockebrand • With contributions by Rudi Fuchs,
Richard Shiff and Nicholas Serota • Writings by Donald Judd

The Chinati Foundation is widely considered one of the world’s most important destinations for experiencing large-scale contemporary art. It was founded by Donald Judd (1928–1994), whose specific ambition was to preserve and present a select number of permanent installations that were inextricably linked to the surrounding landscape. Chinati is located on 340 acres of desert on the site of former Fort D. A. Russell in Marfa, Texas. Construction and installation at the site began in 1979 with help from the Dia Art Foundation, it was opened to the public in 1986. This handsome publication is the first comprehensive presentation of the Chinati Foundation’s collection in more than twenty years. The book describes how Judd developed his ideas of the role of art and museums from the early 1960s onward, culminating in the creation of Chinati (and including its two predecessors—his buildings in New York and his residence in Marfa). The individual installations at Chinati are presented in chronological order with stunning photography; these include work by John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, David Rabinowitch, Roni Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Carl Andre, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen, as well as Judd himself. His installations at Marfa include 15 outdoor works in concrete and 100 aluminum pieces housed in two carefully renovated artillery sheds. The book also features writings by Judd relating to Chinati and Marfa, and a complete catalogue of the collection.

Neo-avant-garde and Postmodern
Postwar Architecture in Britain and Beyond Studies in British Art 21
Edited by Mark Crinson and Claire Zimmerman The neo-avant-garde and postmodernism have long been understood in terms of their re-working of modernism and a narrative emphasising rupture and new beginnings. Continuities between the two, especially in postwar Britain, suggest that a new account is needed. This collection of essays discusses the work of architects and their associates, including Alice and Peter Smithson, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, James Stirling, James Gowan, Eduardo Paolozzi, Leon Krier, Allan Greenberg, Reyner Banham and Charles Jencks, and explores why the debate over postwar modernism was especially vocal in Britain.

The Trouble with City Planning
Kristina Ford After the vast destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans faces a rare chance to rebuild, with an unprecedented opportunity to plan what gets built. As the city’s director of planning from 1992 until 2000, Kristina Ford is uniquely placed to use these opportunities as a springboard for an eye-opening discussion of the intransigent problems and promising possibilities facing city planners across America and beyond. In The Trouble with City Planning, Ford argues that almost no part of our usual understanding of the phrase ‘city planning’ is accurate: not our conception of the plan itself, nor our sense of what city planners do or who plans are made for or how planners determine what citizens want. Most important, our conventional understanding does not tell us how a plan affects what gets built in any city in America. Ford advances several planning innovations that, if adopted, could be crucial for restoring New Orleans, but also transformative wherever citizens are troubled by the results of their city’s plan. This keenly intelligent book is destined to become a classic for planners and citizens alike.
Kristina Ford is one of America’s best known urban planners and writers on planning.

Hyperlinks Between Architecture and Design
Joseph Rosa and Zoë Ryan Modern architecture and design were long viewed as separate disciplines, until practitioners in the mid-20th century began crossing boundaries and rethinking form and function. This fluid exchange of ideas has led to innovative solutions addressing issues at the heart of contemporary life, ones that impact the environment, sustainability, technology, politics, personal well-being, and health and safety. This catalogue highlights important recent developments that have resulted from the intersection of architecture and design. The projects examined in this book have been produced by an international array of individuals and studios including Jurgen Mayer H., Greg Lynn, Simon Heijdens, M/M (Paris) and Matali Crasset. Whether tackling new solutions to traditional spatial practices, suggesting inventive responses to current environmental concerns or dealing with issues that address the collective well-being of society, the practitioners who are included in this volume are at the forefront of a cutting-edge field.

The Structure of Light
Richard Kelly and the Illumination of Modern Architecture
Edited by Dietrich Neumann With contributions by Michelle Addingon, Howard Brandston, Tim Edler, Jan Edler, Sandy Isenstadt, Phyllis Lambert, Margaret Maile-Petty and Matthew Tanteri • Foreword by Robert A. M. Stern The potential of electric light as a new building ‘material’ was recognised in the 1920s and became a useful design tool by the mid-century. Skilful lighting allowed for theatricality and narrative, a dramatic interplay between light and dark and a new emphasis on structure and space.

Her sculptures convey an inherent tension between vulnerability and aggression, innocence and seduction, beauty and decadence, and, ultimately, life and death. This book features works spanning the past decade, among them pieces that incorporate literary themes from sources as diverse as Southern writer Flannery O’Connor (who inspired the current book’s title), Japanese novelist Yasunari Kawabata and medieval poet Dante.

The Rothko Chapel
Writings on Art and the Threshold of the Divine
Dominique de Menil Forewords by Christopher Rothko and Fariha de Menil Friedrich Introduction by Emilee Dawn Whitehurst This elegant collection commemorates the timeless words and inspired thoughts of Dominique de Menil, a woman whose life’s task was to inspire a better world. With her husband John, Dominique founded the inter-religious Rothko Chapel in Houston in 1971. The de Menils’ dream was for the Chapel to promote interfaith dialogue, human rights and the arts. They famously commissioned the artist Mark Rothko to create a suite of paintings specifically for the Chapel. Gathered here is a selection of de Menil’s thought-provoking speeches, interviews, letters and other commentaries, beginning with her inaugural address for the Rothko Chapel and concluding with remarks she offered at a human rights award ceremony in 1997. The writings testify to de Menil’s profound belief in the transcendent dimension of life and in the motivating power of the principles of truth and justice.
Dominique de Menil (1908–1997), an American heiress to the Schlumberger Limited oil-equipment fortune, was devoted to art and human rights. Her legacy includes the Menil Collection Museum and Rothko Chapel in Houston.

What Can We Believe Where?
Photographs of the American West, 1965–2005
Robert Adams Afterword by Joshua Chang and Jock Reynolds Since taking up photography in the mid-1960s, Robert Adams has quietly become one of the most influential chroniclers of the evolving American landscape. Carefully edited by Adams from a remarkable body of work that spans over four decades, What Can We Believe Where? presents a narrative sequence of more than 100 tritone images that reveals a steadfast concern for mankind’s increasingly tragic relationship with the natural world. Adams’s understated yet arresting pictures of the vast Colorado plains, the rapid suburbanisation of the Denver and Colorado Springs areas, and the ecological devastation of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States register with subtle precision the complex and often fragile beauty of the scenes they depict. This compact and thought-provoking volume is an essential addition to the bookshelves of students, photographers and anyone interested in the recent history of the American West.

The Emperor’s Private Paradise
Treasures from the Forbidden City
Nancy Berliner With contributions by Mark C. Elliott, Liu Chang, Bruce MacLaren, Henry Tzu Ng and Yuan Hongqi For centuries, China’s Forbidden City has captured the world’s imagination. Parts of the Forbidden City have been open to the public since 1925, yet the elegant Qianlong Garden has remained sequestered from public view. Dating from the eighteenth century, the Garden was built as a retreat for its namesake emperor, a patron of the arts. Now undergoing restoration, it is intended to be fully open to visitors in 2019. The Emperor’s Private Paradise gives an in-depth analysis of the garden and is published to accompany an unprecedented exhibition of ninety objects from the Qianlong Garden.

Barnes, He Li, Kanazawa Yoh and William R. Sargent This lavish catalogue is a comprehensive historical review of Chinese ceramics covering newly excavated discoveries from the Paleolithic era thousands of years ago to the end of the Qing dynasty in 1911. Throughout China’s history there has been an ongoing practice of invention and innovation in the forms, materials, decorations and functions of ceramics. The creation of ceramic ware holds an important place among the many arts that characterise Chinese civilisation. Yet, despite the richness of Chinese ceramics around the world, no fully illustrated survey of a complete history has been attempted in English.

Olmec
Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico
Kathleen Berrin and Virginia M. Fields Considered the ‘mother culture’ of Mesoamerica, the Olmec developed an iconic artistic style as early as the second millennium B.C. This pre-Columbian civilisation, which flourished in the Mexican states of Veracruz and Tabasco between 1400 and 400 B.C., is best known for the creation of colossal stone portrait heads of its rulers, among ancient America’s most inspiring masterpieces. Focusing on the concept of discovery, this volume presents a fresh look at Olmec civilisation.

Arts of the Pacific Islands
Anne D’Alleva In this comprehensive survey of the art of the Pacific Islands, including the Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian and New Guinean traditions, author Anne D’Alleva explains the significance of these artworks by contextualising them within each island’s unique culture and practices. In the process, D’Alleva examines the biases of both artists and Western viewers, telling an important history of both people and ideas through a detailed analysis of sculpture, paintings, textiles, dance, jewellery and architecture. As these nations faced alternating periods of isolation, colonisation and contact with each other and the West, their forms of art were drastically altered. Ranging from the prehistoric period to the modern era, and accompanied by a timeline, bibliography and glossary of terms, this book raises important questions for continued debate and study of the art of the Pacific Rim.

Gauguin’s Paradise Remembered
The Noa Noa Prints
Alastair Wright and Calvin Brown In 1891, Paul Gauguin travelled to Tahiti in an effort to live simply and to draw inspiration from what he saw as the island’s exotic native culture. Although the artist was disappointed by the rapidly westernising community he encountered, his works from this period nonetheless celebrate the myth of an untainted Tahitian idyll, a myth he continued to perpetuate upon his return to Paris. He created a travel journal entitled Noa Noa (fragrant scent), a largely fictionalised account that recalled his L’Univers est créé, from the series Noa Noa, 1894. The Art Institute of Chicago, Clarence Buckingham Collection immersion into the spiritual world of the South Seas. To illustrate his text, (1948.260). © The Art Institute of Chicago. Gauguin turned for the first time to the woodcut medium, creating a series of ten dark and brooding prints that he intended to publish alongside his journal—a publication that was never realised. These woodcuts crystallised important themes from his work and are the focus of this major new study. Gauguin’s Paradise Remembered addresses both the artist’s representation of Tahiti in the woodcut medium and the impact the works had on his artistic practice.

Impressionist Children
Childhood, Family, and Modern Identity in French Art
Greg M. Thomas Images of children and families abound in the works of the French Impressionists, from Claude Monet’s portraits of his young sons to Mary Cassatt’s endearing images of mother and child. In Impressionist Children, Greg M. Thomas offers new perspectives on some of the most famous paintings in art history, explaining how they reflect the dominant social, cultural and political aspects of Parisian middle-class life in the late 1800s. Drawing on letters, children’s books, tourist guidebooks and 19th-century texts on child development, parenting and education, Thomas demonstrates how childhood became a crucial theme for its embodiment of adult ideas about childhood, the family, sexuality, work and leisure, national culture, and, above all, the formation and reproduction of bourgeois identity. He discusses paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures by Impressionist artists and investigates the influence of popular visual culture.

This stunning book highlights more than 100 of the museum’s masterpieces, from the bold works of Édouard Manet, an important figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism, to Claude Monet’s light-filled paintings—the hallmarks of the period—and Paul Cézanne’s influential Post-Impressionist canvases. Each beautifully reproduced work is situated in terms of the memorable era in which it was created, and collectively they exemplify the diversity of ideas and extraordinary wealth of talent at work during the remarkable Impressionist period.

‘The Butcher’s Shop’ by Annibale Carracci
C. D. Dickerson III Born in Bologna, Annibale Carracci (1564–1609) was one of the most revolutionary artists of the late Renaissance. His early painting The Butcher’s Shop, a cherished work in the Kimbell Art Museum’s collection, marks the beginning of Carracci’s artistic journey and remains one of his most powerfully naturalistic works.

Selected Lyrics
Théophile Gautier Translated by Norman R. Shapiro In his ABC of Reading, Ezra Pound begins his short list of nineteenth-century French poets to be studied with Théophile Gautier. Widely esteemed by figures as diverse as Charles Baudelaire, the Goncourt brothers, Gustave Flaubert, Oscar Wilde, Henry James and T. S. Eliot, Gautier was one of the nineteenth century’s most prominent French writers, famous for his virtuosity, his inventive textures, and his motto ‘Art for art’s sake’. His work is often considered a crucial hinge between High Romanticism—idealistic, sentimental, grandiloquent—and the beginnings of ‘Parnasse’, with its emotional detachment and plasticity. His large body of verse, however, is little known outside France. This generous sampling, anchored by the complete Émaux et Camées, perhaps Gautier’s supreme poetic achievement, and including poems from the vigorously exotic España and several early collections, not only succeeds in bringing these poems into English but also rediscovers them, renewing them in the process of translation.
Théophile Gautier (1811–1872) was a prominent French poet, novelist, critic and journalist. Norman R. Shapiro is professor of Romance languages and literatures at Wesleyan University.

Cyclops
Ranko Marinkovic Translator Vlada Stojiljkovic Edited by Ellen Elias-Bursac In his semiautobiographical novel, Cyclops, Croatian writer Ranko Marinkovic recounts the adventures of young theatre critic Melkior Tresic, an archetypal antihero who decides to starve himself to avoid fighting in the front lines of World War II. As he wanders the streets of Zagreb in a near-hallucinatory state of paranoia and malnourishment, Melkior encounters a colourful circus of characters—fortune-tellers, shamans, actors, prostitutes, bohemians and café intellectuals—all living in a fragile dream of a society about to be changed forever. Cyclops reveals a little-known perspective on World War II from within the former Yugoslavia, one that has never before been available to an English-speaking audience. Vlada Stojiljkovic’s translation and Ellen Elias-Bursac’s insightful editing, preserves the striking brilliance of this riotously funny and allusive text. Melkior’s peregrinations reveal how history happens and how the individual consciousness is swept up in the tide of political events, and this is accomplished in a mode that will resonate with readers of Charles Simic, Aleksandr Hemon and Kundera.
Ranko Marinkovic was a Croatian writer of plays and novels. His best known works are Glorija and Kiklop (Cyclops).

Adonis
Selected Poems
Adonis • Translated by Khaled Mattawa Born in Syria in 1930, Adonis is one of the most celebrated poets of the Arabic-speaking world. His poems have earned international acclaim, and his influence on Arabic literature has been likened to that of T. S. Eliot’s on Englishlanguage verse. This volume serves as the first comprehensive survey of Adonis’s work, allowing English readers to admire the arc of a remarkable literary career through the labours of the poet’s own handpicked translator, Khaled Mattawa. Experimental in form and prophetic in tone, Adonis’s poetry sings exultantly of both the sweet promise of eros and the lingering problems of the self.
Adonis is a poet and essayist who led the modernist movement in Arabic poetry in the second half of the 20th century. He has written more than 20 books, including the pioneering work, An Introduction to Arab Poetics. Khaled Mattawa is the author of four books of poetry and teaches at the University of Michigan.

Fuenteovejuna
Lope Félix de Vega Carpio Translated by G. J. Racz With an Introduction by Roberto González Echevarría Lope de Vega ‘single-handedly created the Spanish national theatre’, writes Roberto González Echevarría in the introduction to this new translation of Fuenteovejuna. Often compared to Shakespeare, Molière and Racine, Lope is widely considered the greatest of all Spanish playwrights and Fuenteovejuna (The Sheep Well) is among the most important Spanish Golden Age plays. Written in 1614, Fuenteovejuna centres on the decision of a village to admit to the murder of a tyrannical ruler. Lope employs the tragicomic conventions of the Spanish comedia as he leavens the central dilemma of the peasant lovers, with the shenanigans of the gracioso or clown. Based on a historical incident, Fuenteovejuna offers a paean to collective responsibility and affirmation of the timeless values of justice and kindness.
Lope Félix de Vega Carpio wrote more than seven hundred plays and thousands of poems.

Lidless
Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig • Foreword by David Hare It’s been fifteen years since Guantánamo, fifteen years since Bashir last saw his U.S. Army interrogator, Alice. Bashir is now dying of a disease of the liver, an organ which he believes to be the home of the soul. He tracks down Alice in Texas and demands that she donate half her liver as restitution for the damage wrought during her interrogations. But Alice doesn’t remember Bashir; a PTSD pill trial she participated in while in the army has left her without any memory of her time there. It is only when her inquisitive fourteen-year-old daughter begins her own investigation that the fragile peace of mind that Alice’s druginduced oblivion enabled begins to falter. Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig’s powerful drama asks important and difficult questions: Is guilt a necessary form of moral reckoning, or is it an obstacle to be overcome? Will the price of national political amnesia be paid only by the next generation—the daughters and sons who were never there? Upon awarding the prize, David Hare wrote, ‘We admired the play because—although it was stylishly written, although the governing metaphor and basic realism were held in a fine balance—it also recalled the political urgency which had propelled a previous generation of writers into the theatre in the first place’.
Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig holds an MFA from the James Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas, Austin.

64 Religion/Philosophy

The Spirit of the Quakers
Selected and Introduced by Geoffrey Durham Who are the Quakers, what do they believe, and what do they practice? The Religious Society of Friends—also known as Quakers-— believes that everyone can have a direct experience of God. Quakers express this in a unique form of worship that inspires them to work for change in themselves and in the world. In The Spirit of the Quakers, Geoffrey Durham, himself a Friend, explains Quakerism through quotations from writings that cover 350 years, from the beginnings of the movement to the present day. Peace and equality are major themes in the book, but readers will also find thought-provoking passages on the importance of action for social change, the primacy of truth, the value of simplicity, the need for a sense of community and much more. The quoted texts convey a powerful religious impulse, courage in the face of persecution, the warmth of human relationships and dedicated perseverance in promoting just causes. The extended quotations have been carefully selected from wellknown Quakers such as George Fox, William Penn, John Greenleaf Whittier, Elizabeth Fry and John Woolman, as well as many contemporary Friends. Together with Geoffrey Durham’s enlightening and sympathetic introductions to the texts, the extracts from these writers form an engaging, often moving guide to this accessible and open-hearted religious faith.
Geoffrey Durham became a member of the Religious Society of Friends in 1999. As a founding member of Quaker Quest, a pioneering outreach project, he has spoken or facilitated at some 300 public meetings. He contributed articles to all seven of the ‘Twelve Quakers and . . .’ series, and edited Twelve Quakers and Pacifism and Twelve Quakers and Equality.

Giving Voice to Values
How to Speak Your Mind When You Know What’s Right
Mary C. Gentile Mary Gentile draws on actual business experiences as well as social science research to challenge the assumptions about business ethics at companies and business schools. She gives business leaders, managers and students the tools not just to recognise what is right, but also to ensure that the right things happen. The book is inspired by a programme Gentile launched at the Aspen Institute with Yale School of Management, and now housed at Babson College. She explains why past attempts at preparing business leaders to act ethically too often failed, arguing that the issue isn’t distinguishing what is right or wrong, but knowing how to act on your values despite opposing pressure. Through researchbased advice, practical exercises and scripts for handling a wide range of ethical dilemmas, Gentile empowers business leaders with the skills to voice and act on their values, and align their professional path with their principles. Giving Voice to Values is an engaging, innovative and useful guide and is essential reading for anyone in business.
Mary C. Gentile, Ph.D., consults on management education and values-driven leadership. Currently she is director of the Giving Voice to Values curriculum and senior research scholar at Babson College.

Globalization at Risk
Challenges to Finance and Trade
Gary Clyde Hufbauer and Kati Suominen History has declared globalization the winner of the 20th century. Globalization connected the world and created wealth unimaginable in the wake of the Second World War. But the financial crisis of 2008–09 has now placed at risk the liberal economic policies behind globalization. Engulfing the entire world, the crisis gave new fuel to the sceptics of the benefits of economic integration. Policy responses seem to favour antiglobalizers. New regulations could balkanize the global financial system, while widespread protectionist impulses might undo the Doha Round. Issues from climate change to national security may be used as convenient excuses to keep imports out, keep jobs at home and to clamp down on global capital. International economists Gary Clyde Hufbauer and Kati Suominen argue that globalization has been a force of great good. Drawing on the latest economic analyses, they reveal the drivers and effects of global finance and trade, lay out the key risks to globalization, and offer a practical policy roadmap for managing the challenges while increasing the gains.

Contesting Development
Participatory Projects and Local Conflict Dynamics in Indonesia
Patrick Barron, Rachael Diprose and Michael Woolcock This pathbreaking book grapples with an established reality: well-intentioned international development programmes often generate local conflict, some of which escalates to violence. To understand how such conflicts can be managed peacefully, the authors have undertaken a comprehensive mixed methods analysis of one of the world’s largest participatory development projects, the highly successful Kecamatan Development Programme (KDP) which was launched by the World Bank and the Indonesian government in the late 1990s and now operates in every district across Indonesia.
Patrick Barron, a doctoral candidate at the University of Oxford, was for seven years the manager of World Bank’s Conflict and Development programme in Indonesia.

Turbulence
Boeing and the State of American Workers and Managers
Edward S. Greenberg, Leon Grunberg, Sarah Moore and Patricia B. Sikora This timely book investigates the experiences of employees at all levels of Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA) during a ten-year period of dramatic organisational change. As Boeing transformed itself, workers and managers contended with repeated downsizing, shifting corporate culture, new roles for women, outsourcing, mergers, lean production and rampant technological change. Drawing on a blend of quantitative and qualitative research, the authors consider how management strategies affected the well-being of Boeing employees, as well as their attitudes towards their jobs and their company.

66 Ecology/Anthropology

G. Evelyn Hutchinson and the Invention of Modern Ecology
Nancy G. Slack Stephen J. Gould declared G. Evelyn Hutchinson the most important ecologist of the twentieth century. E. O. Wilson pronounced him ‘one of the few scientists who could unabashedly be called a genius’. In this fascinating book, Nancy G. Slack presents for the first time the full life story of this brilliant scientist who was also a master teacher, a polymath and a delightful friend and correspondent. Based on full access to Hutchinson’s archives and extensive interviews with him and many who knew him, the author evaluates his important contributions to modern ecology and his profound influence as a mentor. She also looks into his personal life, including his three very different wives, and friendships with such contemporaries as Rebecca West, Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. Filled with information available nowhere else, the book draws a vibrant portrait of an original scientific thinker who was also a man of remarkable personal appeal.
Nancy G. Slack is professor of biology, emerita, The Sage Colleges.

The Art of Ecology
Writings of G. Evelyn Hutchinson
Edited by David K. Skelly, David M. Post and Melinda D. Smith • Foreword by Thomas E.

No single person is more responsible for this change than G. Evelyn Hutchinson. This collection of selected writings showcases Hutchinson’s dynamic and wide-ranging mind as well as his keen wit. Original essays by scientists and historians underscore the continuing relevance of Hutchinson’s ideas.

The Banana Tree at the Gate
A History of Marginal Peoples and Global Markets in Borneo
Michael R. Dove The ‘Hikayat Banjar’, a seventeenth-century native court chronicle from Southeast Borneo, characterises the irresistibility of natural resource wealth to outsiders as ‘the banana tree at the gate’. Michael Dove employs this phrase as a root metaphor to frame the history of resource relations between the indigenous peoples of Borneo and the world system. In analysing production and trade in forest products, pepper and especially natural rubber, Dove shows that the involvement of Borneo’s native peoples in commodity production for global markets is ancient and highly successful. Dove demonstrates that processes of globalization began millennia ago and that they have been more diverse and less teleological than often thought. Dove’s analysis replaces the image of the isolated tropical forest community that needs to be helped into the global system with the reality of communities that have been so successful and competitive that they have had to fight political elites to keep from being forced out.
Michael Dove is Margaret K. Musser Professor of Social Ecology, Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Tropical Resources Institute at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies; Professor of Anthropology at Yale University; and Curator of Anthropology at the Yale Peabody Museum.

The Best Technology Writing 2010
Edited by Julian Dibbell The iPad. The Kindle. Twitter. When The Best Technology Series was inaugurated in 2005, these did not exist. Today, they not only make headlines: they define our twenty-first-century lives. In his introduction to The Best Technology Writing 2010, Julian Dibbell addresses the collective fascination with all things digital: ‘More than other technology, the digital is us. Yet for that reason, the digital is also something more, a lightening rod for our feelings about technology in general’. This deep fascination reverberates throughout this collection: Sam Anderson’s giddy but troubled defense of online distractions; David Carr’s full-throated elegy to the dying world of predigital publishing; Steven Johnson’s warm appreciation of Twitter’s bite-sized contributions to collective human intelligence; Vanessa Grigoriadis’s probing assessments of Facebook’s growing role in our personal lives; Evan Ratliff ’s fascinating monthlong quest to disappear without a digital trace—each traces our intimate and complicated relationship to digital media. Yet, as Dibbell notes, the essays collected here also remind us that some of the most disruptive technologies come from beyond the digital world and we are made to marvel, too, at how many aspects of human experience have not been transformed or remain unchanged by digital technology.
Julian Dibbell is a contributing editor at Wired Magazine and the author of the books Play Money: Or, How I Quit My Day Job and Made Millions Trading Virtual Loot and My Tiny Life: Crime and Passion in a Virtual World.

Genetics of Original Sin
The Impact of Natural Selection on the Future of Humanity
Christian de Duve • With Neil Patterson • Foreword by E. O. Wilson Increasingly absorbed in recent years by advances in our understanding of the origin of life, evolutionary history and the advent of humankind, eminent biologist Christian de Duve of late has also pondered deeply the future of life on this planet. Focusing on the process of natural selection, de Duve explores the inordinate and now dangerous rise of humankind. His explanation for this self-defeating success lies in the process of natural selection, which favours traits that are immediately useful, regardless of later consequences. Thus, the human genome determines such properties as tribal and group cohesion and collaboration and often fierce and irrational competition with and hostility towards other groups’ attributes that were once useful but now often ruinously dysfunctional. Christian de Duve suggests that these traits, imprinted into human nature by natural selection, may have been recognised by the writers of Genesis, thus inspiring the myth of original sin.

The Ambonese Herbal

Volumes 1–6

Georgius Everhardus Rumphius • Translated by E. M. Beekman Over the course of five decades, the seventeenth-century naturalist Georgius Everhardus Rumphius assiduously gathered information on the native plants of Ambon Island and its archipelago. By presenting descriptions of the plants and their multiple uses, he succeeded in creating a cultural and scientific treasury of incomparable value not only for his contemporaries but also for today’s botanists, anthropologists, ethnobotanists, science historians, medicinal chemists and other scholars. Rumphius’ comprehensive reference, complete with 811 original illustrations, describes in remarkable detail more than 2,000 plants, their habitats and their economic and medicinal uses.
Georgius Everhardus Rumphius, a soldier and naturalist, arrived on the island of Ambon in Indonesia in 1653 and until his death devoted himself to the task of documenting the tropical environment he encountered there. The late E. M. Beekman was Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He was also a poet, novelist and author.

Young Voices Against Indifference
Twenty Years of the Ethics Prize Essays of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity
Preface by Elie Wiesel Introduction by Thomas Friedman In 1986, Elie Wiesel received the Nobel Peace Prize. Soon after, he and his wife, Marion, created the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity. A project at the heart of the Foundation’s mission is its Ethics Prize—a remarkable essay-writing contest through which thousands of students from colleges across America are encouraged to confront ethical issues. Readers will find essays here on Bosnia, the genocide in Rwanda, sweatshops and globalization, and the political obligations of the mothers of Argentina’s Disappeared. Other essays tell of a white student who joins a black gospel choir, a young woman who learns to share in Ladakh and the outsize implications of reporting on something as small as a cracked windshield. Readers will be fascinated by the ways in which essays on conflict, conscience, memory, illness and God overlap and resonate with one another.
Elie Wiesel is the author of more than forty books, including the memoir Night. He teaches at Boston University. Thomas Friedman is a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist.

Knowledge in the Making
Academic Freedom and Free Speech in America’s Schools and Universities
Joan DelFattore How free are students and teachers to express unpopular ideas in schools and universities? Wading into some of the most contentious issues of our times, Joan DelFattore investigates battles over a wide range of topics that have fractured school and university communities— homosexuality-themed children’s books, research on race-based intelligence, the teaching of evolution and the regulation of hate speech—and with her usual evenhanded approach offers insights supported by theory and by practical expertise. Two key questions arise: What ideas should schools and universities teach? And what rights do teachers and students have to disagree with those ideas? When expert opinion clashes with popular belief, which should prevail? How much independence should teachers have? What are the free-speech rights of students? This uniquely accessible and balanced discussion deserves the full attention of everyone concerned with academic goals and agendas in schools.
Joan DelFattore is an award-winning author and professor of English and legal studies, University of Delaware.

Representing Justice
The Creation and Fragility of Courts in Democracies
Judith Resnik and Dennis E. Curtis By mapping the remarkable run of the icon of Justice, a woman with scales and sword, and by tracing the development of public spaces dedicated to justice— courthouses—the authors explore the evolution of adjudication into its modern form as well as the intimate relationship between the courts and democracy. The authors analyse how Renaissance ‘rites’ of judgment turned into democratic ‘rights’, requiring governments to respect judicial independence, provide open and public hearings and accord access and dignity to ‘every person’. With over 220 images, readers can see both the longevity of aspirations for justice and the transformation of courts, as well as understand that, while venerable, courts are also vulnerable institutions that should not be taken for granted.
Judith Resnik and Dennis Curtis are law professors at Yale Law School.

Outsourcing War and Peace
How Privatizing Foreign Affairs Threatens Core Public Values and What We Can Do About It
Laura A. Dickinson Over the past decade, states and international organisations have shifted a surprising range of foreign policy functions to private contractors. Though little noticed by the public, the extent of this shift is breathtaking: contractors working for for-profit and non-profit organisations as well as for governments are now delivering aid, negotiating peace settlements and fighting wars. But who is accountable when the employees of foreign private firms do violence or create harm? This timely book describes the services that are now delivered by private contractors and the threat this trend poses to core public values of human rights, democratic accountability and transparency. The author offers a series of concrete reforms that are necessary to expand traditional legal accountability, construct better mechanisms of public participation and alter the organisational structure and institutional culture of contractor firms. The result is a pragmatic, nuanced and comprehensive set of responses to the problem of foreign affairs privatisation.
Laura A. Dickinson is the Foundation Professor of Law, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Arizona State University.

Unwarranted Influence
Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Military Industrial Complex James Ledbetter In Dwight D. Eisenhower’s last speech as president, on January 17, 1961, he warned America about the ‘military-industrial complex’, a mutual dependency between the nation’s industrial base and its military structure that had developed during World War II. After the conflict ended, the nation was not weaned from a wartime economy but rather the opposite. Military spending has steadily increased since then, giving rise to one of the key ideas that continues to shape America’s political landscape. In this book, published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of Eisenhower’s farewell address, journalist James Ledbetter shows how the government, military contractors and the nation’s overall economy have become inseparable. Some of the effects are beneficial, such as cell phones, GPS systems, the Internet and the Hubble Space Telescope, all of which emerged from technologies first developed for the military. But the military-industrial complex has also provoked agonising questions. Does a massive military establishment—bigger than those of the next ten largest combined—really make America safer? How much of the perception of security threats is driven by the profit-making motives of military contractors? To what extent is foreign policy influenced by contractors’ financial interests? Ledbetter uncovers the surprising origins and the even more surprising afterlife of the military-industrial complex, an idea that arose as early as the 1930s, and shows how it gained traction during World War II, the Cold War and the Vietnam era and continues even today.

James Ledbetter is editor of the Big Money, the business website of the Slate Group. His books include Made Possible By . . . and Starving to Death on $200 Million.

Hell on the Range
A Story of Honor, Conscience, and the American West
Daniel Justin Herman In this lively account of Arizona’s Rim Country War of the 1880s, historian Daniel Justin Herman explores a web of conflict involving Mormons, Texas cowboys, New Mexican sheepherders, Jewish merchants and mixed-blood ranchers. Their story, contends Herman, offers a fresh perspective on Western violence, Western identity and American cultural history. At the heart of Arizona’s range war, argues Herman, was a conflict between cowboys’ code of honour and Mormons’ code of conscience. He investigates the sources of these attitudes, tracks them into the early twentieth century and offers rich insights into the roots of American violence and peace.
Daniel Justin Herman is associate professor, Central Washington University. He is author of Hunting and the American Imagination.

First Strike
America, Terrorism, and Moral Tradition
Mark Totten Can the use of force first against a less-than-imminent threat be both morally acceptable and consistent with American values? In this timely book Mark Totten offers the first in-depth, historical examination of the use of preemptive and preventive force through the lens of the just war tradition. Although critical of the American incursion into Iraq as a so-called ‘preemptive war’, Totten argues that the new terrorist threat nonetheless demands careful consideration of when the first use of force is legitimate. The moral tradition, he concludes, provides a principled way forward that reconciles American values and the demands of security.

The Jeffersons at Shadwell
Susan Kern Merging archaeology, material culture and social history, historian Susan Kern reveals the fascinating story of Shadwell, the birthplace of Thomas Jefferson and home to his parents Jane and Peter Jefferson, their eight children and over sixty slaves. Located in present-day Albemarle County, Virginia, Shadwell was at the time considered ‘the frontier’. However Kern demonstrates that Shadwell was no crude log cabin; it was, in fact, a well appointed gentry’s house full of fashionable goods, located at the centre of a substantial plantation. Kern’s scholarship offers new views of the family’s role in settling Virginia as well as new perspectives on Thomas Jefferson himself. The story of Shadwell affects how we interpret much of what we know about Thomas Jefferson today and Kern’s fascinating book is sure to become the standard work on Jefferson’s early years.
Susan Kern is currently visiting assistant professor of history at the College of William and Mary.

William Clark’s World
Describing America in an Age of Unknowns
Peter J. Kastor William Clark, co-captain of the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition, devoted his adult life to describing the American West. But this task raised a daunting challenge: how best to bring an unknown continent to life for the young republic? Through the life and career of William Clark, this book explores how the West entered the American imagination. While he never called himself a writer or an artist, Clark nonetheless drew maps, produced books, drafted reports, surveyed landscapes and wrote journals that made sense of the West for a new nation fascinated by the region’s potential but also fearful of its dangers. Focusing on the texts and images Clark and his contemporaries produced, William Clark’s World presents a new take on the manifest destiny narrative and on the way the West took shape in the American imagination in the early nineteenth century.
Peter J. Kastor is associate professor of history and American culture studies, Washington University in St. Louis.

À la rencontre du cinéma français
Analyse, genre, histoire
R.-J. Berg À la rencontre du cinéma français is intended to serve as the core textbook in a wide variety of upper-level undergraduate and graduate French cinema courses.

Sufficient proficiency in French is the sole prerequisite: ‘No previous background in film studies is assumed, nor is any prior acquaintance with French cinema. It will help, of course, to like movies, and to have seen quite a few…’ (from the preface).
R.-J. Berg is the author of widely used textbooks on literature (Littérature française: textes et contextes, vols. I and II) and business French (Parlons affaires! Initiation au français économique et commercial).

Why the Dreyfus Affair Matters
Louis Begley In 1894, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a brilliant French Jewish artillery officer serving on the army General Staff, was court-martialed for selling secrets to Germany. After a trial from which the public and press were excluded, Dreyfus was found guilty of treason on the basis of trumped-up evidence. What went wrong in France to permit a trial that was a travesty? And why did this case tear France apart? Louis Begley explores these questions and others in this remarkable volume about the meaning of the rule of law. “a brilliant work of historical storytelling, reminding us to what extent the drama is in the detail.”—The Jewish Chronicle “Begley’s own contribution to dispelling silence and indifference consists in deftly retelling the story of the Dreyfus Affair and explicitly connecting it to our times.” —Ruth Scurr, The New York Times
Louis Begley is a bestselling novelist and a lawyer.

His clear-eyed approach offers transparency and a solution to the frenzy of chemical misinformation in our lives.” —Stephanie Wallis, The Ecologist “[Wargo’s] arguments are empirical, scientifically literate and ultimately convincing . . .

Sin
A History
Gary A. Anderson In this sensitive, imaginative and original work, Gary A. Anderson shows how changing conceptions of sin and forgiveness lay at the very heart of the biblical tradition. Spanning nearly two thousand years, the book brilliantly demonstrates how sin, once conceived of as a physical burden, becomes, over time, eclipsed by economic metaphors. These changing notions profoundly shaped both Jewish and Christian practices, provided a spur for the Protestant Reformation, and created a legacy that endures until today. “Astonishing . . . compelling . . . . This book merits wide and sustained attention . . . There are few books available that offer as many generative insights as this one.” —Walter Brueggemann, Christian Century “innovative”—Jonathan Wright, BBC History Magazine
Gary A. Anderson is professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible in the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame.

Felstiner manages to be both ecstatic and admonitory, visionary and attentive to detail. His immense reading is like a forest through which he has lovingly carved out several inviting paths. That one is tempted to ponder alternative ways of organizing the book (poems about rivers, trees, meadows? poems about gardens, animals, the seasons?) is an acknowledgment of Felstiner’s learned, enthusiastic and hopeful achievement.”—The Times Literary Supplement
John Felstiner is professor of English at Stanford University and author of a prize-winning Paul Celan biography.

Faulkner and Love
The Women Who Shaped His Art
Judith L. Sensibar The deeply moving, untold story of America’s greatest twentieth-century novelist and the three women at the centre of his imaginative life. “Sensibar [argues] . . . that Faulkner’s early fiction should be looked upon as the result of a collaboration between him and [his wife] Estelle. The implications of this are groundbreaking . . . will provide a valuable source for students looking for explanations of the racialised sexual imagery in his great novels . . . one finds in these pages a fascinating account of a writer’s racial and sexual education in the racially divided American South.” — Nigel Rodenhurst, Times Higher Education
 “a fascinating, rich and important book, situating Faulkner within a community of women and thus giving even greater significance to all the important feminist work done on Faulkner.”—Deborah Clarke, The Times Literary Supplement
Judith L. Sensibar is the author of The Origins of Faulkner’s Art and the winner of fellowships from the NEH and the ACLS.

Wetware
A Computer in Every Living Cell
Dennis Bray How is a single-cell creature able to hunt living prey, respond to external stimuli and display complex sequences of movements without the benefit of a nervous system? In colourful, jargon-free language, biologist Dennis Bray explains how living cells perform computations and what it means functionally and evolutionarily. “Dennis Bray [writes] with remarkable clarity and style in this excellent book . . . Highly recommended.” —Graham Lawton, New Scientist “Drawing on the similarities between Pac-man and an amoeba and efforts to model the human brain, this absorbing read shows that biologists and engineers have a lot to learn from working together.”—Discover Magazine
Dennis Bray is professor emeritus, University of Cambridge, and coauthor of several influential texts on molecular and cell biology. In 2007, he was awarded the prestigious European Science Prize in Computational Biology.

Sexual Chemistry
A History of the Contraceptive Pill
Lara V. Marks Heralded as the catalyst of the sexual revolution and the solution to global overpopulation, the contraceptive pill was one of the twentieth century’s most important inventions. This deeply-researched history of the oral contraceptive shows how its development and use have raised crucial questions about the relationship between science, medicine, technology and society. “The story of the pill . . . told in absorbing detail and from an international perspective.”—Daniel J. Kevles, New York Times Book Review “This well-researched, wide-ranging and highly readable book will deservedly become the definitive study of the subject for the foreseeable future . . . Skilfully combining medical, social and feminist history, Sexual Chemistry is a model study”—Roy Porter, Times Higher Education
Lara Marks is senior lecturer in the history of medicine at Imperial College, University of London.

Elephants on the Edge
What Animals Teach Us about Humanity
G. A. Bradshaw In the tradition of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, renowned animal trauma specialist G. A. Bradshaw offers a compelling look into the elephant mind. She sheds light on how war, poaching and other factors have seriously reduced elephant numbers; on how people are working to save them; and on why humans need to rethink how we treat and view all animals. “The best parts of Bradshaw’s narrative reveal the devoted souls who try to rehabilitate orphaned elephants. They feed them, sleep next to them and teach them what their slaughtered or culled relatives would have imparted in better times. This can only make for better elephants.” —Jonathan Wright, Glasgow Sunday Herald
G. A. Bradshaw, who holds doctorates in ecology and psychology, is director of the Kerulos Center. Her work on elephants, chimpanzees, parrots and other animals is frequently featured in the media.

In a new preface, Orsi discusses significant shifts in the field of religious history and calls for new ways of empirically studying divine presences in human life. “[Orsi] convey[s], at times movingly, the sense of loss that is part of the immigrant experience and the tensions that it produces in the immigrant family.”—Vincent Crapanzano, The Times Literary Supplement “An imaginative and subtly written account of the development of Italian community life in New York . . . It is an excellent analysis of a complex religious and domestic experience.”—The Sunday Times
Robert A. Orsi is Professor of Religion, Northwestern University, and author of Thank You, St. Jude.

Furs and Frontiers in the Far North
The Contest among Native and Foreign Nations for the Bering Strait Fur Trade
John R. Bockstoce Award-winning author John Bockstoce fills a major gap in the historiography of the area in covering the scientific, commercial and foreignrelations implications of the northern fur trade. In addition, the book provides rare insight into the relationship between the Western powers and the Native Americans who provided them with fur, ivory and whalebone in exchange for manufactured goods, tobacco, tea, alcohol and hundreds of other things. But this is also the story of the enterprising individuals who energised the Alaskan fur trade and, in doing so, forever altered the region’s history. “this book is as near perfect as I think any book about the fur trade can be . . . [It] is a gold mine of information for historians, geographers, ethnologists and antiquarians.” —Arctic Book Review
Arctic specialist John R. Bockstoce is an independent scholar and the author of many books, monographs and articles, including Arctic Discoveries: Images from Voyages of Four Decades in the North and Whales, Ice, and Men: The History of Whaling in the Western Arctic.

Dominion from Sea to Sea
Pacific Ascendancy and American Power
Bruce Cumings Being bordered by the world’s two largest oceans gives America a competitive advantage that is often overlooked by historians focused primarily on the country’s relationship with Europe. Bruce Cumings boldly challenges this perspective, advocating a dual approach to American history that equally incorporates both Atlanticist and Pacificist perspectives. “one of the richest and most thoughtful books of American history I have read in a long time . . . Cumings’s book is both a timely and splendidly enjoyable read.” —Dominic Sandbrook, Literary Review “traces American history along its inexorable drive westward, not merely to California and the limits of the continent’s frontier but all the way to the Pacific Rim. He argues that such westward outreach has transformed America’s character and helped to write its destiny, if not always for the good . . . a sprawling narrative, with shifting subthemes and flashes back and forth in time.”—Arthur Herman, The Wall Street Journal
Bruce Cumings is chair of the History Department at the University of Chicago and author of the award-winning book The Origins of the Korean War.

The Bourgeois Frontier
French Towns, French Traders, and American Expansion
Jay Gitlin The Seven Years War brought an end to the French colonial enterprise in North America, but the French in towns such as New Orleans, St. Louis and Detroit survived the transition to American rule. French traders from mid-America then became agents of change in the West, perfecting a strategy of ‘middle grounding’ by pursuing alliances within Indian and Mexican communities in advance of American settlement and re-investing fur trade profits in land, town sites, banks and transportation. This book provides the missing French connection between the urban Midwest and western expansion.
Jay Gitlin is lecturer, Department of History, Yale University, and associate director of the Howard R. Lamar Center for the Study of Frontiers and Borders.

Thinking in Circles
An Essay on Ring Composition
Mary Douglas Social anthropologist Mary Douglas argues that many famous antique texts are misunderstood and others have been dismissed because they employ ring composition, a literary style unfamiliar today. “Not since Lévi-Strauss has any anthropologist done so much to cast light on literary problems as Mary Douglas. Everything she touches she illuminates.”—Gabriel Josipovici “Over the course of her career Ms. Douglas has become a master at discerning order in unexpected forms and surprising places. In an unassuming way, without pretense or revolutionary claims, she reveals the logic behind the varied customs of a society.”—Edward Rothstein, The New York Times
The late Mary Douglas was professor of social anthropology at University College London. After her retirement she was an honorary research fellow there.

In the Name of God and Country
Reconsidering Terrorism in American History
Michael Fellman Acclaimed Civil War scholar Michael Fellman offers a provocative examination of the historical origins and impact of terrorism in America. “Fellman’s indictment of the United States and his suggestion that 19th century responses to terrorism provided ‘templates’ for the future are sad and sobering.” —Glenn C.

Paul A. Rahe This powerful examination of the works of Montesquieu, now in paperback, seeks to understand the shortcomings of modern democracy in light of the French philosopher’s insightful critique of commercial republicanism. “This is a beautifully crafted, erudite work that stimulates thought, challenges old views and invites us to heed the dangers implicit in what might disarmingly appear to be a triumphant and safe liberal democratic market order.” —Henry Farrell, Times Higher Education

Kent E. Calder An expert on Pacific Rim alliances shows that the important relationship between the United States and Japan is beset by silent but serious problems and offers a variety of solutions to revitalise the two nations’ partnership for the twenty-first century. “U.S.–Japan alliance ties critically need broadening and strengthening in the cultural and social as well as military spheres.

One Nation Under Contract
The Outsourcing of American Power and the Future of Foreign Policy
Allison Stanger Allison Stanger shows how contractors became an integral part of American foreign policy, often in scandalous ways—but also maintains that contractors aren’t the problem; the absence of good government is. “As we debate how many more troops to dispatch to Afghanistan, it might be a good time to also debate just how far we’ve already gone in hiring private contractors to do jobs that the State Department, Pentagon and C.I.A. once did on their own. A good place to start is with . . . One Nation Under Contract.”—Thomas Friedman, New York Times
Allison Stanger is Russell Leng ’60 Professor of International Politics and Economics at Middlebury College and director of its Rohatyn Center for International Affairs.
