The Big Reset (revised edition) War on Gold and the Financial Endgame Amid the turmoil in the Eurozone, economic problems in Russia, stagnation in Japan, and rumblings that China may slip into recession, the one reliable asset is the American dollar. While it may encounter ups and downs, investors for decades have been confident that it will never lose a substantial part of its value. That may be about to change. In The Big Reset, Willem Middelkoop lays out the case for an inevitable monetary reset, one that will be designed to keep the United States in the driver’s seat, but will include strong roles for the Euro and China’s Renminbi—and, crucially, gold. This fully revised edition of Middelkoop’s book takes into account developments since its original publication, which have only strengthened the case for the coming return of gold. Willem Middelkoop is a journalist covering finance and economics and the founder of the Commodity Discovery Fund.

Rijksmuseum The Building, the Collection and the Outdoor Gallery Few art collections in the world can rival that of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Built in 1885, the iconic museum holds more than a million works, with a particular focus on Dutch masters—its collection of works by Van Gogh, Vermeer, and Rembrandt are unparalleled. The museum recently reopened after a ten-year renovation that cost more than $400 million, and the result is stunning: never before has the Rijksmuseum’s collection been displayed so well. This book offers a lavishly illustrated chronicle of both the collection and the building that houses it. Though nothing can replace an actual trip to the Rijksmuseum—as the more than two million annual visitors can attest—this book comes as close as possible, taking art lovers on a virtual tour of the greatest masterworks of Western art in a building that is brilliantly designed to show them at their best. Cees W. de Jong and Patrick Spijkerman are authors and editors of a number of books on architecture.

The Final Book of Giovanni Villani's New Chronicle Giovanni Villani's New Chronicle traces the history of Florence, Italy, and Europe over a vast sweep of time - from the destruction of the Tower of Babel to the outbreak of the Black Death. This is the first full translation of the final book, which covers one of the most dramatic periods of the early 14th century, is a narrative of transformation, of crisis, in which the author, like many of his contemporaries in the mid-14th century, perceives the punishing hand of God.

Translated with an introduction and notes by Edward Arthur Naumann

Nicholas of Lyra Literal Commentary on Galatians Nicholas of Lyra lived in an era of political turbulence and spiritual conflict, when the papacy was in Avignon and the Franciscans were clashing with the more radical and strict "Spirituals." Nicholas's commentary on St. Paul's letter to the Galatians aims to restore a firm understanding of the literal meaning of the text, looking at the innate internal meaning, stressing that we must keep in mind what St. Paul most directly intended to be understood. This edition will facilitate further research in the influence of Nicholas’s Postilla on later works and authors, including Martin Luther.

John Hardyng, Chronicle Edited from British Library MS Lansdowne 204, Volume 1 As one of only a handful of texts written in the twilight years of Henry VI's reign, John Hardyng's first Chronicle offers a compelling insight into the taste, hopes, and anxieties of a late fifteenth-century gentleman who had witnessed, and all too often participated in, each of the key events that defined his era. Hardyng's interest in Britain's past is typical of the gentry's enthusiasm for historical works, while his concern with war and duty reflects the importance of such matters to men of his rank.

The Serious Game Ingmar Bergman as Stage Director Though Ingmar Bergman became famous as a filmmaker, his roots—and, to some extent, his heart—were in the theatre. He directed more than one hundred plays in his career, and The Serious Game takes a close look at fourteen productions he staged at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Looking closely at the relationship between the verbal and the visual, this book gives even longtime Bergman fans a new understanding of his sensitivity to nuance, his versatility, and his dedication to craftsmanship. Egil Törnqvist was professor emeritus of Scandinavian studies at the University of Amsterdam.

FILM CULTURE IN TRANSITION MAY Hardback 156 x 234 mm 348 pages 99 b/w illustrations ISBN 978 90 8964 891 4

This book brings together two major filmmakers—French New Wave master Jean-Luc Godard and German avant-gardist Harun Farocki—to explore the fundamental tension between theoretical abstraction and the capacities of film itself, a medium where everything seen onscreen is necessarily concrete. Volker Pantenburg shows how these two filmmakers explored the potential of combined shots and montage to create “film as theory.”

A Revolution for the Screen Abel Gance's Napoleon Abel Gance’s silent masterpiece, Napoleon, was given a limited run on its debut in 1927, but soon afterwards distributors in France and America, unwilling to deal with its nine-hour running time, subjected it to savage cuts – with devastating results for the movie and for film history. The struggle across ensuing decades to restore and reintegrate Gance’s film has formed a backdrop to an array of formal, contextual, and ideological battles. In this book, Paul Cuff takes

account of those battles and challenges received opinion on Gance’s view of both his film and its subject. Paul Cuff is an Associate Fellow in the Department of Film and Television at the

Everywhere Taksim Sowing the Seeds for a New Turkey at Gezi In May 2013, a small group of protesters made camp in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, protesting the privatisation of what had long been a vibrant public space. When the police responded to the demonstration with brutality, the protests exploded in size and force, quickly becoming a massive statement of opposition to the Turkish regime. This book assembles a collection of field research, data, theoretical analyses, and cross-country comparisons to show the significance of the protests both within Turkey and throughout the world.

From Padi States to Commercial States Reflections on Identity and the Social Construction Space in the Borderlands of Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar “Zomia” is a term coined in 2002 to describe the broad swath of mountainous land in Southeast Asia that has always been beyond the reach of lowland governments despite their technical claims to control. This book expands the anthropological reach of that term, applying it to any deterritorialised people, from cast-out migrants to modern resisters—in the process finding new ways to understand the realities of peoples and ethnicities that refuse to become part of the modern state. Frédéric Bourdier is an anthropologist at the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in France. Maxime Boutry is an independent scholar who received his PhD in social anthropology and ethnology at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris in 2007.

Jan Breman

Mobilizing Labour for the Global Coffee Market Profits From an Unfree Work Regime in Colonial Java Coffee has been grown on Java for the commercial market since the early eighteenth century, when the Dutch East India Company began buying from peasant producers in the Priangan highlands. What began as a commercial transaction, however, soon became a system of compulsory production. This book shows how the Dutch East India Company mobilised land and labour, why they turned to force cultivation, and what effects the brutal system they installed had on the economy and society.
