A landmark biography revealing the real man behind the heroic legend inspired by the triumph at Waterloo The last harvest or British Threshers makeing French crops, 1808. © The Trustees of the British Museum

Wellington The Path to Victory, 1769–1814 Rory Muir The Duke of Wellington was Britain’s greatest soldier, whose victories turned the tide of Napoleon’s conquests and played a crucial role in his downfall. Wellington went on to be a major figure in British politics, twice serving as Prime Minister. Often the centre of controversy, he was at times feted and celebrated as a national hero, at others reviled in the press and abused in the streets. He was a far more complicated man than the paragon of virtue celebrated by Victorian biographers. Rory Muir’s masterly new biography, the first of a two volume set, is the result of thirty years research into the Duke of Wellington and his times. The author brings Wellington into much sharper focus than ever before, critically examining every aspect of his life from his unhappy childhood, his baptism into British and Irish politics and his remarkable successes in India, to the setbacks and triumphs of the Peninsular War. This is the first biography to address the significance of Wellington’s political connections and the way they both helped and hindered his campaigns. The work also gives fresh insight into Wellington’s character: his many strengths and the flaws that together made him a complex and interesting man as well as a great soldier.

October 672 pp. 234x156mm. 32 pp. illus., maps & plans

Rory Muir is visiting research fellow, University of Adelaide. His previously published books include a highly praised study of Wellington’s great triumph at Salamanca and the edited letters of Alexander Gordon, Wellington’s confidential aide-de-camp.

An extraordinary selection of revealing letters to and from one of the titans of 20th-century music

The Leonard Bernstein Letters Edited by Nigel Simeone Leonard Bernstein was a charismatic and versatile musician – a brilliant conductor who attained international superstar status, and a gifted composer of Broadway musicals (West Side Story), symphonies (Age of Anxiety), choral works (Chichester Psalms), film scores (On the Waterfront) and much more. Bernstein was also an enthusiastic letter writer, and this book is the first to present a wide-ranging selection of his correspondence. The letters have been selected for the insights they offer into the passions of his life – musical and personal – and the extravagant scope of his musical and extra-musical activities.

Nigel Simeone is well known as a writer and speaker on music and is the author of several books including Leonard Bernstein: West Side Story.

October 480 pp. 234x156mm. 24 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-17909-5 £25.00*

Bernstein’s letters tell much about this complex man, his collaborators, his mentors and others close to him. His galaxy of correspondents encompassed, among others, Aaron Copland, Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Boris Pasternak, Bette Davis, Adolph Green, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis, and family members including his wife Felicia and his sister Shirley. The majority of these letters have never been published before. They have been carefully chosen to demonstrate the breadth of Bernstein’s musical interests, his constant struggle to find the time to compose, his turbulent and complex sexuality, his political activities and his endless capacity for hard work. Beyond all this, these writings provide a glimpse of the man behind the legends: his humanity, warmth, volatility, intellectual brilliance, wonderful eye for descriptive detail and humour. ‘What terrifying letters you write: fit for the flames is what they are. Just imagine how much you would have to pay to retrieve such a letter forty years from now when you are conductor of the Philharmonic.’ – Aaron Copland to Bernstein in 1940

A much-loved author brings the world of literature alive for all ages

Author photo © UCL

A Little History of Literature John Sutherland This ‘little history’ tackles a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Harry Potter. John Sutherland is perfectly suited to the task, having taught and written on every area of literature. His infectious passion for books and reading has defined his own life. Now he guides young readers and adults alike on an entertaining journey revealing how literature from across the world can transport us and help us to make sense of what it means to be human. Sutherland introduces great classics in his own irresistible way, enlivening his offerings with humour as well as learning: Beowulf, Shakespeare, Don Quixote, the Romantics, Dickens, Moby Dick, The Waste Land, Woolf, 1984 and dozens of others. He adds to these a less-expected, personal selection of authors and works, including literature usually considered well below ‘serious attention’ – from the rude jests of Anglo-Saxon runes to The Da Vinci Code. With masterful digressions into various themes – censorship, narrative tricks, self-publishing, taste, creativity and madness – Sutherland demonstrates the full depth and intrigue of reading. John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus of Modern English Literature, University College London. A trenchant critic and columnist, he has taught students at every level and is the author or editor of more than 20 books, including Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Lives of the Novelists: A History of Fiction in 294 Lives.

Published in its entirety for the first time, a candid conversation with Susan Sontag at the height of her brilliant career Main image: Susan Sontag. Photograph by Thomas Victor Left: Jonathan Cott. Photograph by Rachel Popo

Susan Sontag The Complete Rolling Stone Interview Jonathan Cott Susan Sontag, one of the most internationally renowned and controversial intellectuals of the latter half of the 20th century, still provokes. In 1979, Jonathan Cott, a founding contributing editor of Rolling Stone magazine, interviewed Sontag first in Paris and later in New York. Only a third of their many hours of discussion ever made it to print. Now, more than three decades later, Yale is proud to publish the entire transcript of Sontag’s remarkable conversation, accompanied by Cott’s preface and recollections. Sontag’s musings and observations reveal the passionate engagement and breadth of her critical intelligence and curiosities at a moment when she was at the peak of her powers. Nearly a decade after her death, these hours of conversation offer a revelatory and indispensable look at the self-described ‘besotted aesthete’ and ‘obsessed moralist’. Sontag proclaims a personal credo, declaring: ‘Thinking is a form of feeling; feeling is a form of thinking’. Jonathan Cott is the author of numerous books, including most recently Days That I’ll Remember: Spending Time with John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

An entertaining and provocative investigation of friendship in all its variety, from ancient times to the present day Author photo: Mykel Nicolaou/Rex Features

Friendship A. C. Grayling A central bond, a cherished value, a unique relationship, a profound human need, a type of love. What is the nature of friendship, and what is its significance in our lives? How has friendship changed since the ancient Greeks began to analyse it, and how has modern technology altered its very definition? In this fascinating exploration of friendship through the ages, one of the most thought-provoking philosophers of our time tracks historical ideas of friendship, gathers a diversity of friendship stories from the annals of myth and literature, and provides unexpected insights into our friends, ourselves and the role of friendships in an ethical life. A. C. Grayling roves the rich traditions of friendship in literature, culture, art and philosophy, bringing into his discussion familiar pairs as well as unfamiliar – Achilles and Patroclus, David and Jonathan, Coleridge and Wordsworth, Huck Finn and Jim. Grayling lays out major philosophical interpretations of friendship, then offers his own take, drawing on personal experiences and an acute awareness of vast cultural shifts that have occurred. With penetrating insight he addresses internet based friendship, contemporary mixed gender friendships, how friendships may supersede family relationships, one’s duty within friendship, the idea of friendship to humanity and ultimately the universal value of friendship.

From a master biographer and leading scholar of 18thcentury literature comes a major new portrait of the greatest satirist in the English language

Swift in Informal Attire: Jonathan Swift, Dean of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, graphite on paper, by Isaac Whood (1730), National Gallery of Ireland

Jonathan Swift His Life and His World Leo Damrosch Jonathan Swift is best remembered today as the author of Gulliver’s Travels, the satiric fantasy that quickly became a classic and has remained in print for nearly three centuries. Yet Swift also wrote many other influential works, was a major political and religious figure in his time, and became a national hero, beloved for his fierce protest against English exploitation of his native Ireland. What is really known today about the enigmatic man behind these accomplishments? Can the facts of his life be separated from the fictions? In this deeply researched biography, Leo Damrosch draws on discoveries made over the past thirty years to tell the story of Swift’s life anew. Probing holes in the existing evidence, he takes seriously some daring speculations about Swift’s parentage, love life, and various personal relationships and shows how Swift’s public version of his life – the one accepted until recently – was deliberately misleading. Swift concealed aspects of himself and his relationships, and other people in his life helped to keep his secrets.

November 568 pp. 234x156mm. 94 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-16499-2 £25.00*

Assembling suggestive clues, Damrosch re-narrates the events of Swift’s life while making vivid the scents, sounds, and smells of his English and Irish surroundings.Through his own words and those of a wide circle of friends, a complex Swift emerges: a restless, combative, empathetic figure, a man of biting wit and powerful mind, and a major figure in the history of world letters. Leo Damrosch is Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature at Harvard University. He is the author of nine books, including Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless Genius and most recently Tocqueville’s Discovery of America.

The first major biography of the founder of modern Iraq, a charismatic champion of Arab independence and unity Faisal observing battle during the Arab Revolt, 1918. Lowell Thomas Archives, Marist College

Faisal I of Iraq Ali A. Allawi Born in 1885, King Faisal I of Iraq was a great figure not only in the founding of the state of Iraq but also in the making of the modern Middle East. In all the tumult leading to the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire and the establishment of new Arab states, Faisal was a central player. His life traversed each of the important political, military and intellectual developments of his times. This major life is the first to provide a fully rounded picture of Faisal the man and Faisal the monarch. Ali A. Allawi recounts the dramatic events of Faisal’s life and provides a reassessment of his crucial role in developments in the pre- and post-World War I Middle East and of his lasting but underappreciated influence in the region even 80 years after his death. A battle-hardened military leader who, with the help of Lawrence of Arabia, organised the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire; the leading representative of the Arab cause at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919; a founding father and king of the first independent state of Syria; and championed by Gertrude Bell and Lawrence, the first king of Iraq – in his many roles Faisal overcame innumerable crises and opposing currents while striving to build the structures of a modern state. This book is the first to afford his contributions to Middle East history the attention they deserve.

From one of the world’s most revered scholars of religion, an incisive explanation of how the word ‘God’ functions in the world’s great faiths

The Experience of God Being, Consciousness, Bliss David Bentley Hart Despite recent ferocious public debate about the likelihood of the existence of God, the most central concept in such arguments remains strangely obscure. What is God? Are those engaged in the debate all talking about the same thing? In this beautifully written contribution to reasoned discussion, a revered religious thinker clarifies how the word ‘God’ functions in various religious traditions. Ranging broadly across Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Vedantic and Bhaktic Hinduism, Sikhism, various paganisms, Buddhism and Taoism, David Hart explores how the world’s major theistic traditions treat divine mysteries. One cannot fail to notice, he contends, that on a host of philosophical issues, and especially the issue of divine transcendence, areas of accord among the great faiths are vast. Hart takes pointed issue with those who refute ideas they have not even examined with care and with simplistic assertions designed to mislead. He demolishes modern aetheist arguments, including the blatant misconception of God as puppeteer, as well as the fundamentalist view of the Bible as an objective record of historical data. Instead, the author plumbs the depths of humanity’s experience of the world as powerful evidence for the reality of God. Offering a bold corrective to careless or incoherent treatments of his subject, Hart captures the beauty and poetry of traditional reflection upon the divine. October 376 pp. 210x140mm.

A lively investigation of the Catholic Church and its controversial social mission in the developing world Priest Ricardo Rezende celebrates an outdoor mass for squatters and landless workers, Brazil, 1990 (BrazilPhotos/Alamy Images)

Earthly Mission The Catholic Church and World Development Robert Calderisi With 1.2 billion members, the Catholic Church is the world’s largest organisation and perhaps its most controversial. The Church’s obstinacy on matters like clerical celibacy, the role of women, birth control, and the child abuse scandal has alienated many Catholics, especially in the West. Yet in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the Church is highly esteemed for its support of education, health and social justice. Author of the bestselling The Trouble with Africa, Robert Calderisi has travelled through Africa, Asia and Latin America, talking to cardinals in the hallowed halls of the Vatican, nuns staffing clinics in grimy squatter settlements in Latin America and priests struggling to speak up for poor people in Africa – not to mention local and Western critics of the Church’s work. In this absorbing and deeply informed book, he explores the tensions within the Church – complicity with genocide in Rwanda and dictatorship in Argentina versus the defence of human rights in Brazil and El Salvador, the refusal until very recently to countenance condom use in Africa versus determined support for girls’ education. This is a fascinating, often eye-opening investigation that will engross readers of all faiths and none.

A powerful account of life and loss in the Great War, as told by British soldiers in their letters home Ernest Smith’s sketch of his billet at Bailleul in March 1915, when, aged twenty-two, he was in training with the Artists Rifles

Life, Death and Growing Up on the Western Front Anthony Fletcher This book was inspired by the author’s discovery of an extraordinary cache of letters from a soldier who was killed on the Western Front during the First World War. The soldier was his grandfather, and the letters had been tucked away, unread and unmentioned for many decades. Intrigued by the heartbreak and history of these family letters, Fletcher sought out the correspondence of other British soldiers who had volunteered for the fight against Germany. This resulting volume offers a vivid account of the physical and emotional experiences of seventeen British soldiers whose letters and one diary survive. Drawn from different regiments, social backgrounds, and areas of England and Scotland, they include twelve officers and five Tommies.

September 336 pp. 234x156mm. 16 pp. b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-19553-8 £20.00*

The book explores the training, journey to France, fear, shellshock, and life in the trenches as well as the leisure, love and home leave the soldiers dreamed of. Fletcher discusses the psychological responses of 18- and 19-year-old men facing appalling realities and considers the particular pressures of those who survived their fallen comrades. While acknowledging the horror and demands for endurance these soldiers experienced, the author shows another side to the story, focusing new attention on the loyal comradeship, robust humour, and strong morale that uplifted the men at the Front and created a powerful bond among them. Anthony Fletcher is a historian of the early modern period. He is a former professor at the Universities of Sheffield, Durham, Essex and London.

Monty’s Men The British Army and the Liberation of Europe John Buckley John Buckley offers a radical reappraisal of Great Britain’s fighting forces during the Second World War, challenging the common belief that the British Army was no match for the forces of Hitler’s Germany. Following Britain’s military commanders and troops across the battlefields of Europe, from D-Day to VE-Day, from the Normandy beaches to Arnhem and the Rhine, and, ultimately, to the Baltic, Buckley’s provocative history demonstrates that the British Army was more than a match for the vaunted Nazi war machine. This fascinating revisionist history of the campaign to liberate Northern Europe in the war’s final years features a large cast of colourful unknowns and grand historical personages alike, including Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery and the prime minister, Sir Winston Churchill. By integrating detailed military history with personal accounts, it evokes the vivid reality of men at war while putting long-held misconceptions finally to rest.

St Petersburg Shadows of the Past Catriona Kelly Fragile, gritty and vital to an extraordinary degree, St Petersburg is one of the world’s most alluring cities – a place in which the past is at once ubiquitous and inescapably controversial. Yet outsiders are far more familiar with the city’s pre-1917 and Second World War history than with its recent past. In this beautifully illustrated and highly original book, Catriona Kelly shows how creative engagement with the past has always been fundamental to St Petersburg’s residents. Weaving together oral history, personal observation, literary and artistic texts, journalism and archival materials, she traces the at times paradoxical feelings of anxiety and pride that were inspired by living in the city, both when it was socialist Leningrad, and now. Ranging from rubbish dumps to promenades, from the city’s glamorous centre to its grimy outskirts, this ambitious book offers a compelling and always unexpected panorama of an extraordinary and elusive place. Catriona Kelly is Professor of Russian at the University of Oxford, a Fellow of the British Academy, and the author of many books about Russian literature and culture.

A celebrated art historian who has spent a lifetime looking at art writes about looking as a way of being in the world

Photograph by Michael Baxandall

Roof Life Svetlana Alpers This is not a memoir. It does not take the form of a story. It is instead a kind of self-portrait, or perhaps several self-portraits. Svetlana Alpers had been keeping files: records of what she saw out the windows of her loft in New York; records of art sold, bought or seen on her walls; records of foods found in markets and prepared in places where she lived; and records of herself seen in photographs, drawings and paintings made by others. In solving the question of her father’s place and date of birth, she reconstructs the life of her Russian grandfather in a distant and tumultuous Europe of a century ago. It was Roof Life that made it all come together. The title refers to what one discovers looking out from high windows with distant and distinctive views. In addition, it refers to the way one’s attention is heightened and sharpened by confronting things that are unfamiliar, or that are made to appear unfamiliar by circumstances. It describes the immediacy of distance. Renowned art historian Svetlana Alpers assembles in these pages descriptions of things that mattered in a life that began in Cambridge, Massachusetts, continued in Berkeley, California, and is now lived in New York City. The experience of Europe informs it all. Svetlana Alpers is Professor Emerita, History of Art at the University of California, Berkeley, and Visiting Scholar at the Department of Fine Arts, New York University. August 176 pp. 210x150mm.

The Struggle for Iraq’s Future How Corruption, Incompetence and Sectarianism Have Undermined Democracy Zaid Al-Ali Since the withdrawal of US occupying forces, international attention has shifted away from Iraq – but life for Iraqis has become no easier. Deadly bombings are still all too common, sectarian violence has soared and all-pervading corruption means that massive inflows of aid and oil income have made very little difference to crucial issues like security, healthcare and power availability.

January 320 pp. 234x156mm. 12 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-18726-7 £18.99*

Now, Iraqi lawyer Zaid Al-Ali sets out why and how the post-occupation Iraqi government has failed to achieve legitimacy or improve its citizens’ lives. He argues that the ill-planned US intervention destroyed the Iraqi state, creating a black hole which corrupt and incompetent members of the elite have now made their own. In particular, Al-Ali demonstrates how Iraqi politicians and the political system have failed to address Iraq’s problems. The system of government put in place after 2003 has made Sunni/Shia/Kurd divisions worse rather than better, and created a dysfunctional state where the legal system is in crisis, human-rights abuses are commonplace and the natural environment, already degraded by Saddam Hussein’s destructive projects, is worsening every day. This is a vivid, informed and ultimately very sad book. Zaid Al-Ali is senior advisor on constitution building for International IDEA, Cairo, and was a legal adviser to the United Nations in Iraq from 2005 to 2009.

Naturalists at Sea Scientific Travellers from Dampier to Darwin Glyn Williams On the great Pacific discovery expeditions of the ‘long 18th century’, naturalists for the first time were commonly found aboard ships sailing forth from European ports. Lured by intoxicating opportunities to discover exotic and perhaps lucrative flora and fauna unknown at home, these men set out eagerly to collect and catalogue, study and document an uncharted natural world.

September 336 pp. 234x156mm. 36 colour illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-18073-2 £25.00*

This enthralling book is the first to describe the adventures and misadventures, discoveries and dangers of this devoted and sometimes eccentric band of explorer-scholars. Their individual experiences are uniquely their own, but together their stories offer a new perspective on the extraordinary era of Pacific exploration and the achievements of an audacious generation of naturalists. Historian Glyn Williams illuminates the naturalist’s lot aboard ship, where danger alternated with boredom and quarrels with the ship’s commander were the norm. Nor did the naturalists’ difficulties end upon returning home, where gaining recognition for years of work often proved elusive. Peopled with wonderful characters and major figures of Enlightenment science – among them Louis Antoine de Bougainville, Joseph Banks, John Reinhold Forster, Captain Cook and Charles Darwin – this book is a gripping account of a small group of scientific travellers whose voyages of discovery were to change perceptions of the natural world. Glyn Williams is Emeritus Professor of History, University of London. He is the author of more than a dozen books on European voyages of exploration and was historical consultant for the BBC television series, The Ship.

The author takes us on an unexpected journey up the Danube, where we encounter a remarkable and unfamiliar world

The Shoes on the Danube Promenade, memorial to Jewish victims shot in 1944–45, Budapest © Meleah Reardon

The Danube A Journey Upriver from the Black Sea to the Black Forest Nick Thorpe The magnificent Danube both cuts across and connects central Europe, flowing through and alongside ten countries: Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany. Travelling its full length from east to west, against the river’s flow, Nick Thorpe embarks on an inspiring year-long journey that leads to a new perspective on Europe today. Thorpe’s account is personal, conversational, funny, immediate and uniquely observant – everything a reader expects in the best travel writing. Immersing himself in the Danube’s waters during daily morning swims, Thorpe likewise becomes immersed in the histories of the lands linked by the river. He observes the river’s ecological conditions, some discouraging and others hopeful, and encounters archaeological remains that whisper of human communities sustained by the river over eight millennia.

The Power of Knowledge How Information and Technology Made the Modern World Jeremy Black Information is power. For more than five hundred years the success or failure of nations has been determined by a country’s ability to acquire knowledge and technical skill and transform them into strength and prosperity. Leading historian Jeremy Black approaches global history from a distinctive perspective, focusing on the relationship between information and society and demonstrating how the understanding and use of information have been the primary factors in the development and character of the modern age. Black suggests that the West’s ascension was a direct result of its institutions and social practices for acquiring, employing, and retaining information and the technology that was ultimately produced. His cogent and well-reasoned analysis looks at cartography and the hardware of communication, armaments and sea power, mercantilism and imperialism, science and astronomy, as well as bureaucracy and the management of information, linking the history of technology with the history of global power while providing important indicators for the future of our world.

Stay A History of Suicide and the Philosophies Against It Jennifer Michael Hecht Many thousands of people kill themselves every year, and many more are left behind to grieve. Distressing statistics show that suicide rates are rising, and studies confirm that suicide causes more suicide, both among those who knew the person and even among strangers who feel some connection. In this highly original book Jennifer Michael Hecht channels her grief for two friends lost to suicide into a search for history’s most persuasive arguments against the irretrievable act. Hecht recounts individual suicide cases from the Bible and ancient Greeks to the present day and analyses how ideas about suicide have changed over time. She explains several puzzling aspects of attitudes toward suicide, including the strange fact that secular philosophy has long been associated with a pro-suicide attitude. In our own times, when the influence of religious prohibitions has waned, Hecht finds that we lack shared, secular, logical arguments against suicide. But there are such arguments, and she focuses new attention on these forgotten ideas that offer hope in the face of despair and powerful reasons to stay when suicide seems a tempting choice.

The Nostalgia Factory Memory, Time and Ageing Douwe Draaisma You cannot call to mind the name of a man you have known for 30 years. You walk into a room and forget what you came for. What is the name of that famous film you’ve watched so many times? These are common experiences, and as we grow older we tend to worry about these lapses. Is our memory failing? Is it dementia? Douwe Draaisma, a renowned memory specialist, here focuses on memory in later life. Writing with eloquence and humour, he explains neurological phenomena without becoming lost in specialist terminology. His book is reminiscent of Oliver Sacks’s work, and not coincidentally this volume includes a long interview with Sacks, who speaks of his own memory changes as he entered his sixties. Draaisma moves smoothly from anecdote to research and back, weaving stories and science into a compelling description of the terrain of memory. He brings to light the ‘reminiscence effect’, just one of the unexpected pleasures of an ageing memory. The author writes reassuringly about forgetfulness and satisfyingly dismantles the myth that mental gymnastics can improve memory. He presents a convincing case in favour of the ageing mind and urges us to value the nostalgia that survives as recollection, appreciate the intangible nature of past events and take pleasure in the consolation of reminiscing.

Dressing Dangerously Dysfunctional Fashion in Film Jonathan Faiers When Marlene Dietrich makes her entrance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Stage Fright, the Dior dress she wears immediately draws the viewer’s attention – not because of its designer label, but owing to the dramatic blood stains ruining its stylish surface. Fashion in film goes far beyond glamorous costumes on glamorous stars, as Jonathan Faiers proves in Dressing Dangerously, a pioneering study of the ‘cinematic negative wardrobe’ revealed in mainstream movies. The book emphasises how problematic, even shocking depictions of dress, until now largely overlooked, play pivotal roles in shaping film narrative.

November 320 pp. 280x240mm. 50 colour + 200 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-18438-9 £35.00*

Integrating fashion theory, film analysis and literature, the insightful text investigates the ways cinema influences fashion and, conversely, how fashion speaks to film. The book also reveals how clothing, imbued with its own symbolic meaning, can be read much like a text; when used to provocative effect, for example, in films such as Villain, Leave Her to Heaven and Casino, the stars’ costumes as well as their actions elicit a complex set of emotional responses. Dressing Dangerously brings together a wealth of illustrations, from glossy publicity photos featuring immaculately dressed stars to film stills that capture ‘dangerously’ fashionable moments. Jonathan Faiers is reader in fashion theory at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.

Exhibiting Fashion Before and After 1971 Judith Clark and Amy de la Haye With the dramatic increase in popularity of fashion exhibitions over the past decade, this groundbreaking book provides a timely look at the evolution of the practice, taking as its anchor the seminal 1971 Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition Fashion: An Anthology by Cecil Beaton, revealing it to be symptomatic of a shift in museological attitudes. The authors’ combined experience of more than forty years, one in architecture and exhibition design and the other in fashion history and curating, informs their detailed account of the exhibition. Accompanied by photographs of Beaton’s museum work published here for the first time, their narrative establishes a perspective from which to view working practices today. Research into international exhibitions from the early 20th century to the present results in some 150 stunning illustrations, including previously unpublished exhibition photographs and out-of-print documents. Through this research and the testimony of curators, exhibition designers and mannequin manufacturers, the authors discover striking continuity in the development of the fundamental equation of mannequin, dress and mise-en-scène. A comprehensive chronology from 1971 illustrates the exponential rise in exhibitions of Western dress on an international scale. October 192 pp. 280x230mm. 100 colour + 50 b/w illus.

A Queer History of Fashion From the Closet to the Catwalk Edited by Valerie Steele From Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, many of the greatest fashion designers of the past century have been gay. Fashion and style have played an important role within the LGBTQ community, as well, even as early as the 18th century. This provocative book looks at the history of fashion through a queer lens, examining high fashion as a site of gay cultural production and exploring the aesthetic sensibilities and unconventional dress of LGBTQ people, especially since the 1950s, to demonstrate the centrality of gay culture to the creation of modern fashion.

The Memoirs of Walter Bagehot Frank Prochaska Walter Bagehot (1826–1877) was a prominent English journalist, banker and man of letters. For many years he was editor of The Economist, and to this day the magazine includes a weekly ‘Bagehot’ column. His analyses of politics, economics and public affairs were nothing short of brilliant. Sadly, he left no memoir. How, then, does this book bear the title, The Memoirs of Walter Bagehot? Frank Prochaska explains, ‘Given my longstanding interest in Bagehot’s life and times, I decided to compose a memoir on his behalf ’. And so, in this imaginative reconstruction of the memoir Bagehot might have written, Prochaska assumes his subject’s voice, draws on his extensive writings (Bagehot’s Collected Works fill 15 volumes), and scrupulously avoids what Bagehot considered that most unpardonable of faults – dullness. A faux autobiography allows for considerable license, but Prochaska remains true to Bagehot’s character and accurate in his depiction of the times. The memoir immerses us in the spirit of the Victorian era and makes us wish to have known Walter Bagehot. He is, Prochaska observes, the Victorian with whom we would most want to have dinner.

Primo Levi The Matter of a Life Berel Lang In 1943, twenty-four-year-old Primo Levi had just begun a career in chemistry when, after joining a partisan group, he was captured by the Italian Fascist Militia and deported to Auschwitz. Of the 650 Italian Jews in his transport, he was one of only 24 who survived the eleven months before the camp’s liberation. Upon returning to his native Turin, Levi resumed work as a chemist and was employed for thirty years by a company specialising in paints and other chemical coatings. Yet soon after his return to Turin, he also began writing – memoirs, essays, novels, short stories, poetry – and it is for this work that he has won international recognition. His first book, If This Is a Man, issued in 1947 after great difficulty in finding a publisher, remains a landmark document of the 20th century.

Jewish Lives

January 224 pp. 210x140mm. 7 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-13723-1 £18.99*

Berel Lang’s groundbreaking biography shines new light on Levi’s role as a major intellectual and literary figure – an important Holocaust writer and witness but also an innovative moral thinker in whom his two roles as chemist and writer converged, providing the ‘matter’ of his life. Levi’s writing combined a scientist’s attentiveness to structure and detail, an ironic imagination that found in all nature an ingenuity at once inviting and evasive, and a powerful and passionate moral imagination. Lang’s approach provides a philosophically acute and nuanced analysis of Levi as thinker, witness, writer and scientific detective. Berel Lang is Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, State University of New York, Albany. He is the author or editor of twenty-one books.

Pagan Britain Ronald Hutton Britain’s pagan past, with its astonishing number and variety of mysterious monuments, atmospheric sites, enigmatic artefacts, bloodthirsty legends and cryptic inscriptions, has always enthralled and perplexed us. Pagan Britain is a history of religious beliefs from the Old Stone Age to the coming of Christianity. This ambitious book integrates the latest evidence to survey our transformed – and transforming – understanding of early religious behaviour; and, also, the way in which that behaviour has been interpreted in recent times, as a mirror for modern dreams and fears. From the Palaeolithic era to the coming of Christianity and beyond, Hutton reveals the long development, rapid suppression and enduring cultural significance of paganism. Woven into the chronological narrative are numerous case studies of sacred sites both well-known – Stonehenge, Avebury, Seahenge and Maiden Castle – and more unusual far-flung locations across the mainland and coastal islands. Celebrating the powerful challenge and stimulus offered to our imagination by relics of Britain’s deep past, this rich book reveals much about archaeological and historical endeavour and our modern quest to know.

Ship of Death A Voyage that Changed the Atlantic World Billy G. Smith It is no exaggeration to say that the Hankey, one small British ship that circled the Atlantic Ocean in 1792 and 1793, transformed Atlantic World history. This book tells the just-uncovered story of the Hankey, from its altruistic beginnings to its disastrous end, and describes the ship’s fateful impact upon people from West Africa to Philadelphia, Haiti to London. Billy G. Smith recounts the saga of the Hankey, that began with a group of high-minded British colonists who planned to establish a colony free of slavery in West Africa. When the colony failed, the ship set sail for the Caribbean and then North America carrying, as it turned out, mosquitoes infected with yellow fever. The resulting pandemic as the Hankey travelled from one port to the next was catastrophic. In the United States, tens of thousands died in Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Charleston. The few survivors on the Hankey eventually limped back to London, hopes dashed and numbers decimated. Smith links the voyage and its deadly cargo to some of the most significant events of the era – the success of the Haitian slave revolution, Napoleon’s decision to sell the Louisiana Territory, a change in the geopolitical situation of the new United States – and spins a captivating tale of unintended consequences.

If Mayors Ruled the World Dysfunctional Nations, Rising Cities Benjamin R. Barber In the face of the most perilous challenges of our time – climate change, terrorism, poverty and trafficking of drugs, guns and people – the nations of the world seem paralysed. The problems are too big, too interdependent, too divisive for the nation-state. Is the nation-state, once democracy’s best hope, today democratically dysfunctional? Obsolete? The answer, says Benjamin Barber in this provocative and original book, is yes. Cities and the mayors who run them can do and are doing a better job. Barber cites the unique qualities cities worldwide share: pragmatism, civic trust, participation, indifference to borders and sovereignty, and a democratic penchant for networking, creativity, innovation and cooperation. He demonstrates how city mayors, singly and jointly, are responding to transnational problems more effectively than nationstates mired in ideological infighting and sovereign rivalries. Featuring profiles of a dozen mayors around the world – courageous, eccentric or both at once – If Mayors Ruled the World presents a compelling new vision of governance for the coming century. Barber makes a persuasive case that the city is democracy’s best hope in a globalising world, and great mayors are already proving that this is so. January 256 pp. 210x140mm.

Nation of Devils Democracy and the Problem of Obedience Stein Ringen Oxford University political theorist Stein Ringen offers a thoughtprovoking meditation on the art of democratic rule: how does a government persuade the people to accept its authority? Every government must make unpopular demands of its citizens, from levying taxes to enforcing laws and monitoring compliance to regulations. The challenge, Ringen argues, is that power is not enough; the populace must also be willing to be led. Ringen addresses this political conundrum unabashedly, using the United States and Britain as his prime examples, providing sharp opinions and cogent analyses on how the culture of national obedience is created and nurtured. He explores the paths leaders must choose if they wish to govern by authority rather than power, or, as the philosopher Immanuel Kant put it, to ‘maintain order in a nation of devils’. Stein Ringen is professor emeritus of sociology and social policy at Oxford University. October 224 pp. 210x140mm. 1 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-19319-0 £20.00

The App Generation How Today’s Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World Howard Gardner and Katie Davis No one has failed to notice that the current generation of youth is deeply – some would say totally – involved with digital media. Professors Howard Gardner and Katie Davis name today’s young people The App Generation, and in this spellbinding book they explore what it means to be ‘app-dependent’ versus ‘app-enabled’ and how life for this generation differs from life before the digital era. Gardner and Davis are concerned with three vital areas of adolescent life: identity, intimacy and imagination. Through innovative research, including interviews of young people, focus groups of those who work with them, and a unique comparison of youthful artistic productions before and after the digital revolution, the authors uncover the drawbacks of apps: they may foreclose a sense of identity, encourage superficial relations with others and stunt creative imagination. On the other hand, the benefits of apps are equally striking: they can promote a strong sense of identity, allow deep relationships and stimulate creativity. The challenge is to venture beyond the ways that apps are designed to be used, Gardner and Davis conclude, and they suggest how the power of apps can be a springboard to greater creativity and higher aspirations.

Status Update Celebrity, Publicity, and Branding in the Social Media Age Alice Marwick Social media technologies such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook promised a new participatory online culture. Yet, technology insider Alice Marwick contends in this insightful book, ‘Web 2.0’ only encouraged a preoccupation with status and attention. Her original research – which includes conversations with entrepreneurs, internet celebrities and Silicon Valley journalists – explores the culture and ideology of San Francisco’s tech community in the period between the dot com boom and the App Store, when the city was the world’s centre of social media development.

Marwick argues that early revolutionary goals have failed to materialise: while many continue to view social media as democratic, these technologies instead turn users into marketers and self-promoters, and leave technology companies poised to violate privacy and to prioritise profits over participation. Marwick analyses status-building techniques – such as self-branding, micro-celebrity and life-streaming – to show that Web 2.0 did not provide a cultural revolution, but only furthered inequality and reinforced traditional social stratification, demarcated by race, class and gender.

The Second Arab Awakening Marwan Muasher This important book is not about immediate events or policies or responses to the Arab Spring. Instead, it takes a long, judicious view of political change in the Arab world, beginning with the first Awakening in the 19th century and extending into future decades when – if the dream is realised – a new Arab world defined by pluralism and tolerance will emerge. Marwan Muasher, former foreign minister of Jordan, asserts that all sides – the United States, Europe, Israel and Arab governments alike – were deeply misguided in their thinking about Arab politics and society when the turmoil of the Arab Spring erupted. He explains the causes of the unrest, tracing them back to the first Arab Awakening, and warns of the forces today that threaten the success of the Second Arab Awakening, ignited in December 2010. Hope rests with the new generation and its commitment to tolerance, diversity, the peaceful rotation of power and inclusive economic growth, Muasher maintains. He calls on the West to rethink political Islam and the Arab-Israeli conflict, and he discusses steps all parties can take to encourage positive state-building in the freshly unsettled Arab world.

It is the cinema book of the year.’ – Christopher Fowler, Independent on Sunday ‘This is an absolute treat. Burton’s mass of meditations is swamped by his love for Elizabeth Taylor.’ – Jonathan Dean, The Sunday Times ‘Vivid and curiously touching, Burton’s diaries are a telling, often painfully truthful addition to the social history of the years between 1960 and 1974.’ – Frederic Raphael, Times Literary Supplement

‘Peter McPhee’s fine new life of Robespierre relies on the first hand, day-to-day accounts rather than the posthumous vilification and hagiography, and in it emerges a quite different portrait of the man.’ – Stuart Kelly, Scotsman ‘McPhee brilliantly evokes the weaknesses as well as the strengths of this thin-skinned, diminutive figure, who suffered recurrent bouts of nervous exhaustion and withdrew from the fray at vital moments. As this stimulating book shows, those who come to play a leading part in times of upheaval are shaped by events rather than controlling them.’ – Malcolm Crook, BBC History Magazine Peter McPhee is a professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne. He has published widely, including most recently Living the French Revolution, 1789–1799.

The Carbon Crunch

Good Italy, Bad Italy

How We’re Getting Climate Change Wrong – and How to Fix It

Why Italy Must Conquer Its Demons to Face the Future

Dieter Helm

In this analysis, now updated to cover events up to the election of February 2013, Bill Emmott explores Italy’s fascinating dual national character, the nation’s descent into economic malaise and political corruption, and what can be done to ensure a return to more prosperous, and more democratic times.

Bill Emmott

Dieter Helm looks at how we have failed to tackle the issue of global warming and argues for a new, pragmatic rethinking of energy policy – from transitioning from coal to gas and eventually to electrification of transport, to carbon pricing and a focus on new technologies. ‘A powerful and heartfelt plea for hard-nosed realism.’ – Fred Pearce, New Scientist ‘[Helm] is far from being the first to tackle [this] issue, but he is among the more influential and … one of the more readable.’ – Pilita Clark, Financial Times ‘A provocative analysis and well worth the discomfort it will likely engender.’ – Steve Yearley, Times Higher Education Dieter Helm CBE is professor of energy policy, University of Oxford and Fellow in Economics at New College, Oxford. He is a member of the Economic Advisory Committee to the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.

He is a regular columnist for The Times in London and La Stampa in Italy. He is the author of several books, including The Sun Also Sets: The Limits to Japan’s Economic Power.

The Woman Reader Belinda Jack This engaging book is the first to address the controversies associated with women’s reading throughout history, and to show how vastly different women’s reading experiences have often been compared to those of men. ‘A lively and erudite history of the many and ingenious covers thrown over women’s minds to keep us in the dark, Jack’s absorbing story describes and deconstructs the endlessly remade cover versions that men (mostly) have told to women, and to themselves, about the reasons why books and women should be kept apart.’ – Jeanette Winterson, The Times ‘Jack has done an impressive job of synthesising the scholarly work on book-history that has radically changed what we know about women’s reading habits through the ages … thorough and informative.’ – Hermione Lee, Guardian Belinda Jack is tutorial Fellow in French, Christ Church, University of Oxford.

The Late Medieval English Church Vitality and Vulnerability Before the Break with Rome G. W. Bernard The later medieval English church is invariably viewed through the lens of the Reformation that transformed it. But in this bold and provocative book, historian George Bernard examines it on its own terms, revealing a church with vibrant faith and great energy, but also with weaknesses that reforming bishops worked to overcome. ‘A sumptuous account of religious life inside the heads of late medieval men and women … It is very much a ‘yes, but’ complement … to the work of Eamon Duffy, but it has all of the latter’s vitality and vividness to boot. It is massively researched and packed with startling detail.’ – John Morrill, BBC History Magazine ‘Bernard has again achieved what he does best: making us go back to an old problem and start thinking afresh.’ – Lucy Wooding, Times Higher Education G. W. Bernard is professor of early modern history at the University of Southampton.

Plants, Books and Inspiration, 1560–1660

David Wootton

Margaret Willes A fascinating account of the people, ideas and publications that revolutionised the nation’s gardens in the 16th and 17th centuries, from courtiers’ grand estates to the humble kitchen plots of housewives. ‘The most successful of the year’s garden history books is Margaret Willes’s The Making of the English Gardener … She deserves a good readership both in and outside England.’ – Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times ‘A heady, brilliant period, well documented by Margaret Willes’s The Making of the English Gardener ... [An] excellent study.’ – Anna Pavord, Independent Magazine

Watcher of the Skies A provocative and penetrating biography of Galileo as author, inventor and astronomer, revealing both his centrality to the scientific revolution and the Renaissance, and his godlessness, failures and obstinacy. ‘Vivid and compelling … [An] engaging subtle and arresting story.’ – Eileen Reeves, Times Higher Education ‘Wittily challenging ... Wootton boldly presents his book as an intellectual biography which cannot be isolated from contemporary attitudes to tradition and innovation, and which cannot focus on Galileo’s ideas without considering his personality and personal relations.’ – Claudio Vita-Finzi, Times Literary Supplement

Margaret Willes spent her career in book publishing, before becoming the publisher at the National Trust until 2005. Her books include Reading Matters: Five Centuries of Discovering Books also published by Yale.

A Little History of Science

A Little History of the World

William Bynum

Illustrated Edition

Filled with stories of men and women who asked endless questions about the world and found answers through scientific discovery, this engaging book takes us on a journey through the amazing history of science.

E. H. Gombrich

‘A Little History of Science delivers a far heavier punch than its modest title would suggest. Ranging from Babylon to bosons, from astrology to astrophysics, this chatty account for teenagers covers not only the world of science but also the scientific history of the world. To enjoy this book you need know nothing about history and little about science.’ – Patricia Fara, History Today ‘A thoughtful, elegantly presented volume with the younger reader in mind, although it’s an inspiring reminder to anyone of our extraordinary journey from ignorance to knowledge.’ – Dallas Campbell, BBC Focus William Bynum is Emeritus Professor of the History of Medicine, UCL, London.

The New Industrial Revolution Consumers, Globalization and the End of Mass Production Peter Marsh The world is on the cusp of a manufacturing revolution, and opportunities abound for countries and companies who understand the changes, says the author of this upbeat analysis. ‘A fizzing analysis of the history and geography of manufacturing and where it is heading.’ – The Economist ‘What is so useful about Marsh’s contribution in The New Industrial Revolution is that he has made an objective assessment of the evidence. And there are few people in Britain who are better equipped to do so.’ – Evan Davis, Financial Times ‘An easy-to-read history of industrialisation since Adam Smith’s time … A light and useful trawl through the five industrial revolutions.’ – Guy Arnold, North South

Blending high-grade design and fine paper, this is both a lovely gift book and an enhanced edition of a timeless account of human history. ‘It certainly couldn’t be done more agreeably … a perfect birthday present for a child with an enquiring mind. I wish it had been available when I was young.’ – Allan Massie, Literary Review ‘A perennial favourite, this is the illustrated edition of Gombrich’s brilliant history and contains 200 pictures, nearly all of them full colour.’ – Sonali Chapman, Oldie E. H. Gombrich, author of the classic The Story of Art, was born in Vienna in 1909. He moved to London in 1936, where he later became Director of the Warburg Institute and Professor of the History of the Classical Tradition at London University.

Perilous Glory The Rise of Western Military Power John France This major history encompasses warfare around the world from 3100 B.C. to the Gulf War and challenges accepted ideas about the development of military strength, the impact of culture on war, the future of Western dominance and much more. ‘This is a powerful book, opinionated but crisply argued, and packed with information … It’s hard to think of a more impressive single-volume history of the not-only Western way of war.’ – Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph ‘An absorbing account of the history of warfare that does not shy away from challenging the reader’s preconceptions … A worthy addition to any military history collection.’ – Jonathan Eaton, Military Times ‘This book deserves attention.’ – Jeremy Black, BBC History Magazine

This Seat of Mars War and the British Isles, 1485–1746 Charles Carlton In this innovative and moving book, Charles Carlton explores the glorious and terrible impact of war at the national and individual levels. Chapters alternate, providing a robust military and political narrative interlaced with accounts illuminating the personal experience of war, from recruitment to the end of battle in discharge or death. Carlton expertly charts the remarkable military developments over the period, as well as war’s enduring corollaries – camaraderie, courage, fear and grief – to give a powerful account of the profound effect of war on the British Isles and its peoples. ‘This Seat of Mars deserves to become a classic text on war itself and on Britain’s martial ancestry.’ – Allan Mallinson, The Times

Wagner and the Art of the Theatre Patrick Carnegy Patrick Carnegy vividly evokes the great productions of Wagner’s operas that have influenced our understanding not only of the composer but also of modern theatre. ‘It’s rare that I fall in love with a book early in its Introduction, but Patrick Carnegy’s Wagner and the Art of the Theatre is such a work … essential reading.’ – William Fregosi, Wagner Notes ‘One of the most marvellous books I have read this year ... Patrick Carnegy recounts with deep scholarship combined with good humour, Wagner’s obsession with special effects.’ – A. N. Wilson, Daily Telegraph ‘Well produced and illustrated, and fairly priced – for opera fans this is a must.’ – Malcolm Hayes, Classic FM Magazine

‘Readable, thought-provoking, and humane.’ – Barbara Donagan, Times Literary Supplement

The Art of Robert Frost

The Bride and The Dowry

Tim Kendall

Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinians in the Aftermath of the June 1967 War

A wonderfully accessible guide to the work of Robert Frost, this hybrid anthology presents a selection of poems from across the poet’s career and places each poem in its social, biographical, historical, and literary context with insightful and astute commentary. ‘Kendall’s ‘readings’ are lucid, persuasive, and blessedly jargon-free. One hopes that others will adopt his brilliant and innovative model when introducing other poets’ Selected Poems.’ – Jon Stallworthy, Oxford University ‘[An] immensely pleasurable anthology … Tim Kendall’s commentary is exemplary: locally attentive and widely informed, it should prove both helpful to the newcomer and a good companion to those many readers for whom these striking poems are already a part of their inner landscape.’ – Seamus Perry, Times Literary Supplement Tim Kendall is professor of English literature and Head of English, University of Exeter. He was founding editor of Thumbscrew, an international poetry magazine, and is the author of several books, including Sylvia Plath: A Critical Study.

Avi Raz This is the first comprehensive study of the Arab-Israeli conflict in the crucial years after the Six Day War. Mining newly declassified records in Israeli, American, British and UN archives, Avi Raz uncovers how and why Israeli-Arab peacemaking negotiations failed. ‘The story of Israeli policy in the late 1960s has been told before. But no one has provided as thorough – or as damning – an account as Avi Raz. The Bride and The Dowry is a work of meticulous scholarship.’ – Adam Shatz, London Review of Books ‘Avi Raz’s readable, scholarly, and engaging volume is situated firmly within the ‘new’ history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Raz deserves congratulations for his study of Israeli policies after June 1967.’ – Matthew Hughes, Middle East Journal Avi Raz is member of the faculty of Oriental studies, University of Oxford, research associate at Oxford’s Centre of International Studies and research fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford.

The Forgotten Palestinians

Wole Soyinka

A History of the Palestinians in Israel

In search of a deeper understanding of Africa, its identity, its current crises and its future, Wole Soyinka explores a wide range of topics, including culture, religion, history, imagination and identity. ‘An intellectually robust, book-length essay that attempts to unravel the paradoxes and contradictions plaguing Nigeria and, by extension, Africa.’ – George Ayittey, Wall Street Journal ‘Among the Africans who deserve some kind of secular sainthood is Wole Soyinka … Vast injustices remain [in Africa], but the continent is lucky to have fearless men and women of conscience, like Soyinka, who are so acutely aware of them.’ – Adam Hochschild, New York Times Book Review Wole Soyinka, the first African to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, is a Nigerian writer, poet and playwright. He is the author of more than twenty plays and ten volumes of poetry. For his implacable resistance to political tyranny he has been imprisoned, threatened with assassination and at times forced to live in exile.

Ilan Pappé In this book, historian Ilan Pappé examines how Palestinians with Israeli citizenship have fared under Jewish rule and what their lives tell us about both Israel’s attitude toward minorities and Palestinians’ attitudes toward the Jewish state. ‘Pappé, in highly readable prose, gives us details and perspective about the history of the Arab community in the state’s early years.’ – David B. Green, Haaretz ‘Ilan Pappé has few peers in courage and integrity in the world of scholars on history … He should shame our academics and media men who cannot bring themselves to face historical truths… The lot of … [Israel’s] Palestinian Arab minority … is described in meticulous and welldocumented detail.’ – A. G. Noorani, Frontline The bestselling author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, Ilan Pappé is currently Professor of History at Exeter University, and previously taught at Haifa University, Israel.

Islamic Imperialism

Egypt on the Brink

A History • Second Edition

From Nasser to the Muslim Brotherhood

Efraim Karsh Efraim Karsh, a widely respected expert in Middle Eastern affairs, challenges the way we understand Middle Eastern history and politics in this provocative book. This new edition brings Karsh’s analysis up to date through the events of the Arab spring. ‘A vigorous refutation of the oversimplified analysis of Middle Eastern woes which piles responsibility for all these troubles on the West and its imperialist policies, past and continuing.’ – Edmund Bosworth, Times Literary Supplement ‘If Islamic history features on your to-do list, then you couldn’t hope for a more up-to-date teacher than Efraim Karsh, who offers a new approach to the place of Islam in today’s world, and a fresh look at the Crusades, with Islamic Imperialism: A History.’ – Sunday Telegraph

Tarek Osman In this thoroughly researched book, Tarek Osman explores what has happened to the biggest Arab nation since President Nasser took control of the country in 1954. This new edition takes events up to summer 2013, looking at how Egypt has become increasingly divided under its new Islamist government. ‘A colourful and convincing picture of the decline of Mubarak’s rule … A compelling account of how the various combustile ingredients of revolution came together, awaiting the final spark.’ – Gerald Butt, Times Literary Supplement ‘Tarek Osman writes with feeling, backed up by an impressively broad list of sources as well as sharp critical insight and astute judgement.’ – The Economist

Efraim Karsh is professor of Middle East and Mediterranean Studies, King’s College, University of London. His books include Palestine Betrayed and Empires of the Sand: The Struggle for Mastery in the Middle East, 1789–1923.

Tarek Osman is an Egyptian political economist with fifteen years’ experience in strategy consulting, private equity and political-economy advisory. He writes for several international publications and frequently comments on Egypt and the Arab world for think tanks and news media.

36 History

Practicing Stalinism Bolsheviks, Boyars, and the Persistence of Tradition J. Arch Getty In old Russia, patron/client relations, ‘clan’ politics, and a variety of other informal practices spanned the centuries. Government was understood to be patrimonial and personal rather than legal, and office-holding was far less important than proximity to patrons. Working from heretofore unused documents from the communist archives, J. Arch Getty shows how these political practices and traditions from old Russia have persisted throughout the 20th-century Soviet Union and down to the present day.

Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz During the 1930s and 1940s, a unique and lasting political alliance was forged among Third Reich leaders, Arab nationalists and Muslim religious authorities. From this relationship sprang a series of dramatic events that, despite their profound impact on the course of the Second World War, remained secret until now. In this book, Middle East scholars Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz uncover for the first time the complete story of this dangerous alliance and explore its continuing impact on Arab politics in the 21st century. Drawing on unprecedented research in European, American and Middle East archives, the authors offer new insight on the intertwined development of Nazism and Islamism and its impact on the modern Middle East.

The book’s chapters examine a number of case studies of political practices in the Stalin era and after. These include cults of personality, the transformation of Old Bolsheviks into noble grandees, the communist party’s personnel selection system, and the rise of political clans (‘family circles’) after the 1917 revolutions. Stalin’s conflicts with these clans, and his eventual destruction of them, were key elements in the Great Purges of the 1930s. But although Stalin could destroy the competing clans he could not destroy the historically embedded patron-client relation, as a final chapter on political practice under Putin shows.

Barry Rubin is director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center of the Interdisciplinary Center, Israel. He is the author of many books. Middle East historian Wolfgang G. Schwanitz is visiting professor at the Global Research in International Affairs Center of the Interdisciplinary Center, and an associate fellow at the Middle East Forum of Pennsylvania.

J. Arch Getty is professor of history at UCLA.

Myth, Memory, Trauma

The Archaeology of Jerusalem

Rethinking the Stalinist Past in the Soviet Union, 1953–70

Katharina Galor and Hanswulf Bloedhorn

Polly Jones Drawing on newly available materials from the Soviet archives, Polly Jones offers an innovative, comprehensive account of de-Stalinization in the Soviet Union during the Khrushchev and early Brezhnev eras. Jones traces the authorities’ initiation and management of the de-Stalinization process and explores a wide range of popular reactions to the new narratives of Stalinism in party statements and in Soviet literature and historiography. Engaging with the dynamic field of memory studies, this book represents the first sustained comparison of this process with other countries’ attempts to rethink their own difficult pasts, and with later Soviet and post-Soviet approaches to Stalinism.

From the Origins to the Ottomans In this sweeping and lavishly illustrated history, Katharina Galor and Hanswulf Bloedhorn survey nearly four thousand years of human settlement and building activity in Jerusalem, from prehistoric times through the Ottoman period.

The Allure of the Archives

The Field of Cloth of Gold

Arlette Farge • Translated by

Glenn Richardson

Thomas Scott-Railton Foreword by Natalie Zemon Davis Arlette Farge’s Le gout de l’archive is widely regarded as a historiographical classic. While combing through two-hundredyear-old judicial records from the Archives of the Bastille, Farge was struck by the extraordinarily intimate portrayal they provided of the lives of the poor in preRevolutionary France, especially women. She was seduced by the sensuality of old manuscripts and by the revelatory power of voices otherwise lost. In The Allure of the Archives, she conveys the exhilaration of uncovering hidden secrets and the thrill of venturing into previously unknown dimensions of the past. Originally published in 1989, Farge’s classic work communicates the experience of archival research while sharing astonishing details about life under the Old Regime in France. Arlette Farge is director of research in modern history at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris. Thomas Scott-Railton has translated for Annales: Histoire, Sciences sociales and New Global Studies. Natalie Zemon Davis is professor of history at the University of Toronto. The Lewis Walpole Series in Eighteenth-Century Culture and History

Glenn Richardson provides the first history in more than four decades of a major Tudor event: an extraordinary international gathering of Renaissance rulers unparalleled in its opulence, pageantry, controversy and mystery. Throughout most of the late medieval period, from 1300 to 1500, England and France were bitter enemies, often at war or on the brink of it. In 1520, in an effort to bring conflict to an end, England’s monarch, Henry VIII, and Francis I of France agreed to meet at ‘the Field of Cloth of Gold’. In the midst of a spectacular festival of competition and entertainment, the rival leaders hoped to secure a permanent settlement as part of a Europeanwide ‘Universal Peace’. Richardson offers a bold new appraisal of this remarkable historical event, describing the preparations and execution of the magnificent gathering, exploring its ramifications, and arguing that it was far more than the extravagant elitist theatre and cynical charade it historically has been considered to be. Glenn Richardson is reader in early modern history at St. Mary’s University College, London.

A Restatement of Religion Swami Vivekananda and the Making of Hindu Nationalism Jyotirmaya Sharma

Forgotten Voices of Mao’s Great Famine, 1958–1962 An Oral History Zhou Xun

In this third instalment of his comprehensive history of ‘India’s religion’ and reappraisal of Hindu identity, Professor Jyotirmaya Sharma offers an engaging portrait of Swami Vivekananda and his relationship with his guru, the legendary Ramakrishna. Sharma’s work focuses on Vivekananda’s reinterpretation and formulation of diverse Indian spiritual and mystical traditions and practices as ‘Hinduism’ and how it served to create, distort and justify a national self-image. The author examines questions of caste and the primacy of the West in Vivekananda’s vision, as well as the systematic marginalisation of alternate religions and heterodox beliefs. In doing so, Professor Sharma provides readers with an incisive entryway into 19th- and 20th-century Indian history and the rise of Hindutva, the Hindu nationalist movement.

In 1958, China’s revered leader Mao Zedong instituted a programme designed to transform his giant nation into a Communist utopia. Called the Great Leap Forward, Mao’s grand scheme – like so many other utopian dreams of the 20th century – proved a monumental disaster, resulting in the mass destruction of China’s agriculture, industry and trade, while leaving large portions of the countryside forever scarred by man-made environmental disasters. The resulting three-year famine claimed the lives of more than 45 million people in China.

The Murder, Betrayal, and Slaughter of the Glorious Charles, Count of Flanders Galbert of Bruges Translated by Jeff Rider On March 2, 1127, while praying in the church of Saint Donatian in Bruges, Charles the Good, count of Flanders, was surrounded by assassins and killed by a sword blow to the forehead. The murder of Charles, who had no progeny, nor named successor, upset the balance of power among England, France and the Holy Roman Empire, giving rise to a prolonged struggle for the countship and bloody civil war, impacting the commercial life of the most prosperous regions of medieval Europe. The eyewitness account by the Flemish cleric Galbert of Bruges of the scandalous assassination and struggle for power that ensued is the only journal to have survived from 12thcentury Europe. This new translation by medieval studies expert Jeff Rider greatly improves upon all previous versions, substantially advancing scholarship on the Middle Ages while granting new life and immediacy to Galbert’s candid narrative.

Indian Ocean Slavery in the Age of Abolition Edited by Robert Harms, Bernard Freamon and David Blight While the British were able to accomplish abolition in the trans-Atlantic world by the end of the 19th century, their efforts paradoxically caused a great increase in legal and illegal slave trading in the western Indian Ocean. Bringing together essays from leading authorities in the field of slavery studies, this comprehensive work offers an original and creative study of slavery and abolition in the Indian Ocean world during this period. Among the topics discussed are the relationship between British imperialism and slavery; Islamic law and slavery; and the bureaucracy of slave trading. ‘The focus on the abolition period marks the volume as unique. It is valuable for that purpose, besides vetting very fine scholarship. I would recommend it to anyone interested in slavery, the Indian Ocean, the Islamic world, and abolition.’ – Paul Lovejoy, author of Transformations in Slavery: A History of Slavery in Africa

Female Alliances

The Christian Monitors

A Plague of Informers

Gender, Identity, and Friendship in Early Modern Britain

The Church of England and the Age of Benevolence, 1680–1730

Conspiracy and Political Trust in William III’s England

Amanda E. Herbert

Brent S. Sirota

Rachel Weil

In the late 17th and early 18th centuries, cultural, economic and political changes, as well as increased geographic mobility, placed strains upon British society. But by cultivating friendships and alliances, women worked to socially cohere Britain and its colonies. In the first book-length historical study of female friendship and alliance for the early modern period, Amanda Herbert draws on a series of interlocking microhistorical studies to demonstrate the vitality and importance of bonds formed between British women in the long 18th century. She shows that while these alliances were central to women’s lives, they were also instrumental in building the British Atlantic world.

This original and persuasive book examines the moral and religious revival led by the Church of England before and after the Glorious Revolution, and shows how that revival laid the groundwork for a burgeoning civil society in Britain. After outlining the Church of England’s key role in the increase of voluntary, charitable and religious societies, Brent Sirota examines how these groups drove the modernisation of Britain through such activities as settling immigrants throughout the empire, founding charity schools, distributing devotional literature, and evangelising and educating merchants, seamen and slaves throughout the British empire – all leading to what has been termed the ‘age of benevolence’.

Stories of plots, sham plots and the citizen-informers who discovered them are at the centre of Rachel Weil’s compelling study of the turbulent decade following the Revolution of 1688. Most studies of the Glorious Revolution focus on its causes or longterm effects, but Weil instead zeroes in on the early years when the survival of the new regime was in doubt. By encouraging informers, imposing loyalty oaths, suspending habeas corpus and delaying the long-promised reform of treason trial procedure, the Williamite regime protected itself from enemies and cemented its bonds with supporters, but also put its own credibility at risk.

During the great flourishing of modern art in fin-de-siècle Vienna, artists of that city focused on images of individuals. Their portraits depict artists, patrons, families, friends, intellectual allies, and society celebrities from the upwardly mobile middle classes. Viewed as a whole, the images allow us to reconstruct the subjects’ shifting identities as the Austro-Hungarian Empire underwent dramatic political changes, from the 1867 Ausgleich (Compromise) to the end of the First World War. This is viewed as a time when the avant-garde overthrew the academy, yet Facing the Modern tells a more complex story, through thoughtprovoking texts by leading art historians. Their writings examine paintings by innovative artists such as Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele alongside those of their predecessors, blurring the conventionally-held distinctions between 19th-century and early-20thcentury art, and revealing surprising continuities in the production and consumption of portraits. This compelling book also features works by lesser-known female and Jewish artists, giving a more complete picture of the time.

The King’s Pictures The Formation and Dispersal of the Collections of Charles I and His Courtiers Francis Haskell With a foreword by Nicholas Penny Edited and with an introduction by Karen Serres The greatest paintings in today’s most famous museums were once part of a fluid exchange determined by volatile political fortunes. In the first half of the 17th century, masterpieces by Titian, Raphael and Leonardo, among others, were the objects of fervent pursuit by art connoisseurs. Francis Haskell traces the fate of collections extracted from Italy, Spain and France by King Charles I and his circle which, after a brief stay in Britain, were largely dispersed after the Civil War to princely galleries across the Continent. From vivid case studies of individual collectors, advisers and artists, and acute analysis of personality and motive, Haskell challenges ideas about this episode in British cultural life and traces some of the factors that forever changed the artistic map of Europe.

Matisse’s Sculpture The Pinup and the Primitive Ellen McBreen Long perceived as a side pursuit to his celebrated painting career, Henri Matisse’s sculpture receives an overdue critical examination in this book. Beginning in 1906, soon after the artist acquired his first African sculpture, Matisse found inspiration in erotic and ethnographic photography, which had become inexpensively mass-produced thanks to advances in halftone technology. Working from these two radically different depictions of the body – one hand carved, the other mechanically made – was a foundational method for Matisse and crucial to the development of his pre-World War I abstraction. Far from a simple narrative of the artist ‘discovering’ Africa, the highly original readings of Matisse’s Sculpture plot new coordinates of study for early 20th-century primitivism. The book examines the larger constructs of thought at the time, with a penetrating analysis of anthropology, popular erotica and the visual culture of French. In addition, it repositions Matisse’s sculptural practice, particularly in regard to its investigations of race and sexuality, as a cornerstone of his prolific career.

The Erotic Doll A Modern Fetish Marquard Smith Since the 19th century, dolls have served as commodities but also as objects of possession and obsession, love and lust. That century witnessed the emergence of the term ‘heterosexual’ as well as distinctly modern conceptions of fetishism, perversity and animism. Their convergence, and the demands of a growing consumer society resulted in a proliferation of waxworks, shop-window dummies and customised love dolls, which also began to appear in art. Oskar Kokoschka commissioned a life-sized doll of his former lover Alma Mahler; Hans Bellmer crafted poupées; and Marcel Duchamp fabricated a nude figure in his environmental tableau Étant donnés. The Erotic Doll is the first book to explore men’s complex relationships with such inanimate forms from historical, theoretical and phenomenological perspectives. Challenging our commonsense grasp of the relations between persons and things, Marquard Smith examines these erotically charged human figures by interweaving art history, visual culture, gender and sexuality studies with the medical humanities, offering startling insights into heterosexual masculinity and its discontents.

The City and the King Architecture and Politics in Restoration London Christine Stevenson The City of London is a jurisdiction whose relationship with the English monarchy has sometimes been turbulent. This fascinating book explores how architecture was used to renew and redefine a relationship essential to both parties in the wake of two momentous events: the restoration of the monarchy, in 1660, and the Great Fire six years later. Spotlighting little-known projects alongside such landmarks as Christopher Wren’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, it explores how they were made to bear meaning. It draws on a range of evidence wide enough to match architecture’s resonances for its protagonists: paintings, prints and poetry, sermons and civic ceremony mediated and politicised buildings and built space, as did direct and sometimes violent action. The City and the King offers a nuanced understanding of architecture’s place in early modern English culture. It casts new light not only on the reign of Charles II, but on the universal mechanisms of construction, decoration and destruction through which we give our monuments significance.

Magnificent Entertainments Temporary Architecture for Georgian Festivals Melanie Doderer-Winkler A thoroughly original study of ephemeral architecture and design, Magnificent Entertainments examines the spectacular displays created for large-scale public celebrations in the Georgian period. The book focuses on a number of specific events – including royal weddings, coronations, battle victories and birthday fêtes – that employed elaborate decorative measures to outshine the typical festivities of the day. Some of these elements, ranging from floral displays and scenery to music and light shows, transformed existing venues into unfamiliar marvels; other times, completely new settings were devised for short-lived occasions. Drawing on primary sources such as commemorative prints, newspaper accounts and diary entries, the book investigates just how essential these fanciful designs were in creating events with lasting impact and popular appeal. The author also delves into the various materials used for construction and embellishment: applications of sugar, sand, marble dust or chalk lent luster and colour to surfaces, while stand-alone firework temples and temporary reception rooms were often crafted of little more than wood, canvas, paint and paste. Melanie Doderer-Winkler is an independent scholar and a former furniture specialist at Christie’s, London. September 320 pp. 292x241mm. 133 colour + 100 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-18642-0 £40.00*

The Origins of Classical Architecture Temples, Orders and Gifts to the Gods in Ancient Greece Mark Wilson Jones Greek temples captivate anyone with an interest in antiquity, and the Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian columnar orders that clad them launched the classical architectural tradition down to modern times. The Origins of Classical Architecture proposes groundbreaking new theories in both areas as it elucidates the nature and function of Greek architecture. While contextualising past debate and prevailing, frequently evolutionary assumptions, Mark Wilson Jones explains how the orders emerged over a relatively short period in response to cultural developments, human agency and artistic inspiration. Temples were houses for the gods while also considered as offerings to them, and thus made appropriately from enduring materials and grandly scaled. These structures, furthermore, sheltered votive offerings of great artistic quality, the design of which influenced that of the temples and the creation of the new architectural forms. Temples and their orders thereby symbolised the dedication of effort and artistry to the cause of religious expression and collective identity. December 288 pp. 285x220mm. 30 colour + 230 b/w illus.

The Sheldonian Theatre Architecture and Learning in Seventeenth-Century Oxford Anthony Geraghty A jewel of the University of Oxford, the Sheldonian Theatre stands out among the groundbreaking designs by the great British architect Sir Christopher Wren. Published to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the building’s construction, this meticulously researched book takes a fresh look at the historical influences that shaped the Sheldonian’s development, including the Restoration of the English monarchy and the university’s commitment to episcopal religion. The book explains just how novel Wren’s design was in its day, in part because the academic theatre was a building type without precedent in England, and in part because the Sheldonian’s classical style stood apart in its university context. The author also points to a shift in the guiding motivation behind the architecture at Oxford: from a tradition that largely perpetuated medieval forms to one that conceived classical architecture in relation to late Renaissance learning. Newly commissioned photographs showcase the theatre’s recently restored interior. Anthony Geraghty is senior lecturer in the history of art at the University of York.

Landscapes of London The City, the Country and the Suburbs 1660–1840 Elizabeth McKellar The idea of a ‘Greater London’ emerged in the 18th century with the expansion of the city’s suburbs. In Landscapes of London, Elizabeth McKellar traces this growth back to the 17th century, when domestic retreats were established in outlying areas. This transitional zone was occupied and shaped by the urban middle class as much as by the elite who built villas there. McKellar provides the first major interdisciplinary cultural history of this area, analysing it in relation to key architectural and planning debates and to concepts of national, social and gender identities. She draws on a wide range of source materials, including prints, paintings, maps, poetry, songs, newspapers, guidebooks and other popular literature, as well as buildings and landscapes. The author suggests that these suburban landscapes – the first in the world – were a new environment, but one in which the vernacular, the rustic and the historic played a substantial part. This fascinating investigation shows London as the forerunner of the complex, multifaceted modern cities of today. December 256 pp. 285x245mm. 24 colour + 120 b/w illus.

The south London parish of Battersea has roots as a working village, growing produce for London markets, and as a high-class suburb, with merchants’ villas on the elevated ground around Clapham and Wandsworth Commons. Battersea enjoyed spectacular growth during Queen Victoria’s reign, and railroads brought industry and a robust building boom, transforming the parish into another of London’s dense, smoky neighbourhoods, though not without its unique and distinguishing features. Among these are Battersea Park, which was created by the Crown in the 1850s; the monumental Battersea Power Station, completed in 1939; and Clapham Junction railway station, which is, by measure of passenger interchanges, the busiest station in the UK. The two latest volumes of the Survey of London, 49 and 50, trace Battersea’s development from medieval times to the present day. Offering detailed analysis of its streets and buildings both thematically and topographically, and including copious original in-depth research and investigation, the books are a trove of architectural and British history. Profusely illustrated with new and archival images, architectural drawings and maps, these volumes are welcome additions to the acclaimed Survey of London series.

Kent: North East and East The Buildings of England John Newman The exceptionally rich architecture of eastern Kent is covered by this fully revised, updated and expanded edition of John Newman’s classic survey, first published in 1969. The city of Canterbury is the county’s greatest treasure, and its glorious cathedral is the first mature example of Gothic architecture in England. The influence of Canterbury appears also in the remains of St Augustine’s seventh-century mission churches, and in sophisticated Norman carved work at churches such as Barfrestone. Kent is also a maritime county, and its coastal towns are excitingly diverse: the royal stronghold of Dover with its mighty medieval castle; the medieval port of Sandwich; and resorts large and small, from genteel Folkestone to lively Margate, with its bold new art gallery. John Newman’s other volumes for the Pevsner Architectural Guides include Kent: West and the Weald (2012), Shropshire (2006), and Glamorgan and Gwent/Monmouthshire in the Buildings of Wales series.

The Elizabethan Renaissance Kirby Hall, the Jacobean mansion at Apethorpe, the late 17th-century French-inspired Boughton, Hawksmoor’s stately Baroque Easton Neston and the interiors of Althorp provide a fascinating survey of changing taste through the centuries. Complementing them are smaller buildings of great character, supreme among them those of Sir Thomas Tresham: the eccentric and ingenious Triangular Lodge at Rushton and the evocative New Beild at Lyveden. Of no less interest are the fine churches, from Anglo-Saxon Brixworth to the noble Gothic of Warmington, Rushden and Finedon and from All Saints, Northampton, one of the grandest 17th-century churches outside London, to Comper’s St Mary’s, Wellingborough. Chief among the towns, Northampton has not only distinguished Victorian and Edwardian public, commercial and industrial buildings but also the principal work in England by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Bruce Bailey is a Northamptonshire man and has contributed to both of the previous editions of the guide to the county in this series. He serves as archivist at Drayton House and for the Althorp Estate.

Powys The Buildings of Wales Robert Scourfield and Richard Haslam The historic counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire and Breconshire are described in this final volume of the Buildings of Wales series, expanded and revised from the first edition of 1979. Prehistoric hill-forts and standing stones, Roman encampments, Early Christian monuments, ruined castles and the enigmatic remains of early industry enhance the landscapes of this wild and beautiful region. Atmospheric medieval churches survive in quantity, together with diverse Nonconformist chapels. Vernacular traditions are represented by robust medieval cruck-framed houses, and by the manor houses and farmhouses of the Tudors and Stuarts.

Generation Dada The Berlin Avant-Garde and the First World War Michael White For the Berlin Dadaists, their identity as a collective – Club Dada, to members – was an integral part of their artistic practice. But the circumstances that brought together the likes of George Grosz, John Heartfield, Raoul Hausmann and Johannes Baader – renamed Propaganda Marshall, Monteurdada, Dadasoph and Oberdada within the organisation – have remained largely unexamined until now. Drawing on extensive archival research, this book documents the group’s beginnings in wartime Berlin and reveals how these relationships influenced its provocative acts, which were inextricably tied to the era’s chaos and brutality. Studying how the Dadaists saw themselves as a new generation – in contrast to their pacifist forebears, the Expressionists – the book sheds light on key developments and events, such as the First International Dada Fair, held in Berlin in 1920. It also offers the first serious consideration of the group’s role in constructing its own legacy, even as the works were deliberately rooted in the ephemeral. Michael White is reader in the history of art at the University of York and is best known internationally for his research on the early-20th-century De Stijl group in the Netherlands.

Edited by Anna Vallye • With contributions by Christian Derouet, Maria Gough, Stuart Liebman, Spyros Papapetros, Anna Vallye and Jennifer Wild With his landmark 1919 painting The City, Fernand Léger inaugurated a vitally experimental decade during which he and others redefined the practice of painting in confrontation with the forms of cultural production that were central to urban life, ranging from graphic and advertising design to theatre, dance, film and architecture. This catalogue casts new light on the painting (reproducing all of its studies together for the first time), the avant-garde use of print media, and Léger’s fascination with cinema and architecture, and contextualises a network of international avant-gardes – including Blaise Cendrars, Le Corbusier, Jean Epstein, Piet Mondrian, Amédée Ozenfant, Francis Picabia and Theo van Doesburg – in relation to Léger. Featuring nearly 250 images of paintings, architectural designs, models, posters, set designs, and film stills and an anthology of relevant historical texts not previously published in English, this handsome volume conveys the spirit of experimentation of the 1920s. Scholars in the fields of art, architecture, and film history offer a deeper understanding of the relationship between art and the modern urban experience that defined this significant chapter in the history of modern art.

Erwin Blumenfeld Edited by Ute Eskildsen Erwin Blumenfeld was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His work offers a unique perspective on the society and politics of the 1930s through the 60s. Born in Berlin, Blumenfeld’s peripatetic career took him first to Amsterdam and then to Paris, where his work in fashion photography began at Vogue in 1938. After two years in a French concentration camp, he made his way to the US and established himself as an eminent fashion photographer. Over one hundred of his photographs featured on the covers of prominent fashion and general interest magazines, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Life and Cosmopolitan. Often minimalist, mainly in colour, these photographs testify to Blumenfeld’s lifelong interest in experimentation. This landmark publication broadens our understanding of Blumenfeld’s innovations, reuniting all the media used by the artist throughout his long career: drawing, photography, photomontage and collage. The motifs of his experimental, sometimes overtly political, black and white photographs appear alongside numerous self-portraits and celebrity portraits, as well as the fashion photographs for which he is most known. Presenting some 150 images, this book provides a fresh understanding of Blumenfeld’s photography for the commercial worlds of fashion and advertising, as well as of his full creative scope. Ute Eskildsen is deputy director and head of the photography collections for the Museum Folkwang, Essen. Distributed for Editions Hazan, Paris • Translation rights: Editions Hazan, Paris

The Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland A History Annette Carruthers

This authoritative book is the first to chronicle the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland. Arts and Crafts ideas appeared there from the 1860s, but not until after 1890 did they emerge from artistic circles and rise to popularity among the wider public. The heyday of the movement occurred between 1890 and 1914, a time when Scotland’s art schools energetically promoted new design and the Scottish Home Industries Association campaigned to revive rural crafts. Across the country the movement influenced the look of domestic and church buildings, as well as the stained glass, metalwork, textiles and other furnishings that adorned them. Art schools, workshops and associations helped shape the Arts and Crafts style, as did individuals such as Ann Macbeth, W. R. Lethaby, Robert Lorimer, M. H. Baillie Scott, Douglas Strachan, Phoebe Traquair and James Cromar Watt, among other wellknown and previously overlooked figures. Together, these architects, artists, and designers contributed to the expansion and evolution of the movement both within and beyond Scotland’s borders.

From Still Life to the Screen Print Culture, Display, and the Materiality of the Image in Eighteenth-Century London Joseph Monteyne From Still Life to the Screen explores the print culture of 18th-century London, focusing on the correspondences between images and consumer objects. In his lively and insightful text, Joseph Monteyne considers such themes as the display of objects in still lifes and markets, the connoisseur’s fetishistic gaze, and the fusion of body and ornament in satires of fashion. The desire for goods emerged in tandem with modern notions of identity, in which things were seen to mirror and symbolise the self. Prints, particularly graphic satires by such artists as Matthew and Mary Darly, James Gillray, William Hogarth, Thomas Rowlandson and Paul Sandby, were actively involved in this shift. Many of these images play with the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, self and thing. They also reveal the recurring motif of image display, whether on screens, by magic lanterns, or in ‘raree-shows’ and print-shop windows. The author links this motif to new conceptions of the self, specifically through the penetration of spectacle into everyday experience. Joseph Monteyne is associate professor in the history of art at the University of British Columbia. Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art

Exhibiting Englishness John Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery and the Formation of a National Aesthetic Rosie Dias In the late 18th century, as a wave of English nationalism swept the country, the printseller John Boydell set out to create an ambitious exhibition space, one devoted to promoting and fostering a distinctly English style of history painting. With its very name, the Shakespeare Gallery signalled to Londoners that the artworks on display shared an undisputed quality and a national spirit. Exhibiting Englishness explores the responses of key artists of the period to Boydell’s venture and sheds new light on the gallery’s role in the larger context of British art. Tracking the shift away from academic and Continental European styles of history painting, the book analyses the works of such artists as Joshua Reynolds, Henry Fuseli, James Northcote, Robert Smirke, Thomas Banks and William Hamilton, laying out their diverse ways of expressing notions of individualism, humour, eccentricity and naturalism. Exhibiting Englishness also argues that Boydell’s gallery radically redefined the dynamics of display and cultural aesthetics at that time, shaping both an English school of painting and modern exhibition practices. Rosie Dias is associate professor in the history of art at the University of Warwick. Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art

Coetzee and Herman Parret Berlinde De Bruyckere is a Belgian artist who specialises in sculpture using various media, including wax, wood, wool, and horse skin and hair. Published to coincide with De Bruyckere’s participation in the 2013 Venice Biennale, this richly illustrated catalogue traces her work from conception to installation, providing a multifaceted introduction to the artist’s complex and compelling work. Struck by the passion and fierce beauty in the writings of J. M. Coetzee, De Bruyckere asked the acclaimed writer to curate the Belgian Pavilion’s exhibition. A previously unpublished text by Coetzee is included in this volume, as well as correspondence that the two exchanged throughout their collaborative process. The book is also enriched by writings by Herman Parret, who explores Saint Sebastian – the dual incarnation of sensuality and mystical suffering, and Venice’s quintessential symbol – and his particular significance to De Bruyckere’s oeuvre.

Printmaking in Paris The Rage for Prints at the Fin de Siècle Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho and Marije Vellekoop In the years between 1890 and 1905, Paris witnessed a revolution in printmaking. Before this time, prints had primarily served reproductive or political ends, but, as the century came to a close, artistic quality became paramount, and printmaking blossomed into an autonomous art form. This gorgeously illustrated and accessibly written book looks at the circumstances in which this terrific new enthusiasm for prints unfolded; the principal players in its development; and the various printmaking techniques being used. Featuring highlights from the Van Gogh Museum, which houses a superb collection of prints from fin-de-siècle Paris, this enlightening volume shows how the most influential artists of the day turned their hands to making beautiful ‘impressions’ – prints that were works of art in themselves. Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho is curator of prints and drawings and Marije Vellekoop is head of collections, research and exhibitions, both at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.

In Flanders Fields The Great War Seen from the Air, 1914–1918 Birger Stichelbaut Aerial photography was a relatively new technology at the onset of the First World War and was embraced as an indispensable tool of wartime intelligence by all nations involved in the conflict. As a result, thousands of photographs taken from the air over the battlefields of the Great War have survived in archives throughout Europe, Australia and the United States. These pictures present the war from a unique perspective, clearly showing the developing trench system, artillery batteries, bunkers, railway lines, airfields, medical evacuation routes and more. They reveal the expanding war in Flanders Fields as the hostilities spread, kilometer by kilometer, devastating the environment and resulting in the complete destruction of the landscape at the front. Birger Stichelbaut is a postdoc researcher based in the department of archaeology, Ghent University, Belgium.

The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence Megan Holmes In Renaissance Florence, certain paintings and sculptures of the Virgin Mary and Christ were believed to have extraordinary efficacy in activating potent sacred intercession. Cults sprung up around these ‘miraculous images’ in the city and surrounding countryside beginning in the late 13th century. In The Miraculous Image in Renaissance Florence, Megan Holmes questions what distinguished these paintings and sculptures from other similar sacred images, looking closely at their material and formal properties, the process of enshrinement, and the foundation legends and miracles associated with specific images. Whereas some of the images presented in this fascinating book are well known, such as Bernardo Daddi’s Madonna of Orsanmichele, many others have been little studied until now. Holmes’s efforts centre on the recovery and contextualisation of these revered images, reintegrating them and their related cults into an art-historical account of the period. By challenging prevailing views and offering a reassessment of the Renaissance, this generously illustrated and comprehensive survey makes a significant contribution to the field.

Religious Poverty, Visual Riches Art in the Dominican Churches of Central Italy in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries Joanna Cannon The Dominican friars of late-medieval Italy were vowed to a life of religious poverty. Yet their churches contained many visual riches, as this groundbreaking study reveals. Works by supreme practitioners – Cimabue, Duccio, Giotto and Simone Martini – are here set in a wider Dominican context. The contents of major foundations – Siena, Pisa, Perugia and Santa Maria Novella in Florence – are studied alongside less well-known centres. For the first time these frescoes and panel paintings are brought together with illuminated choir books, carved crucifixes, goldsmith’s work, tombs and stained glass. At the heart of the book is the Dominicans’ evolving relationship with the laity, expressed at first by the partitioning of their churches, and subsequently by the everincreasing sharing of space, and of the production and use of art. Joanna Cannon’s magisterial study is informed by extensive new research, using chronicles, legislation, liturgy, sermons and other sources to explore the place of art in the lives of the friars and the urban laity of Central Italy. Joanna Cannon is reader in the history of art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. December 368 pp. 280x230mm. 80 colour + 200 b/w illus. HB ISBN 978-0-300-18765-6 £45.00*

Painting under Pressure Reputation and Demand in Renaissance Florence Michelle O’Malley In late 15th-century Italy, there was a growing demand for goods of all types, including art. Painting under Pressure shows how the increased desire for art objects exerted significant pressure on highly sought-after painters. Michelle O’Malley analyses the lives and works of four artists: Alessandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi and Pietro Perugino. She considers network systems, production practices, economic concepts, and workshop input to demonstrate the consequences of high demand on some of the most respected artists of the time.

October 256 pp. 241x170mm. 25 colour + 100 b/w illus.

In this fascinating and incisive book, O’Malley asks how painters approached the manufacture of large bodies of commissioned work, how they made day-to-day decisions about design and the application of pigments, and how serial production related to creating work for commissions, in addition to questions of economics. Using documentary evidence about price, scientific evidence about production and formal analysis about appearance, the book demonstrates Renaissance business practices and shows the individual approaches artists took to producing excellence and meeting high demand. Michelle O’Malley is reader in art history and head of the department of art history, University of Sussex, Brighton.

The Making of Assisi The Pope, the Franciscans and the Painting of the Basilica Donal Cooper and Janet Robson For a brief moment at the close of the 13th century, the town of Assisi was the focus for the two greatest powers in the Latin Church: the Roman papacy and the Franciscan Order. The election in 1288 of Nicholas IV, the first Franciscan pope, was the catalyst for the creation of frescoes of unprecedented intellectual ambition in the Basilica of San Francesco. At the heart of the new decorative scheme were twenty-eight scenes depicting the life of Saint Francis. Putting to one side the long debate about whether the Saint Francis cycle was or was not painted by Giotto, The Making of Assisi takes a fresh approach and treats the cycle as part of a larger, integrated and far-reaching programme of renewal at the Basilica. In this deeply researched, illuminating and beautifully illustrated book, Donal Cooper and Janet Robson investigate the particular historical moment in which the frescoes were made, casting new light on their patronage and iconography. Donal Cooper is an associate professor (lecturer) in the History of Art Department, University of Warwick. Janet Robson is an independent scholar. August 288 pp. 280x230mm. 60 colour + 134 b/w illus.

JFK A Photographic Memoir Lee Friedlander The public outpouring of support for newly elected President John F. Kennedy in 1960 was exceeded in scope and magnitude by the manifestations of grief and mourning after his assassination in 1963. These responses had an unusually strong visual component: likenesses of the president were framed in shop windows, pinned to living room walls and plastered in public spaces across the nation. Fifty years after Kennedy’s death, this book observes the public’s reaction to the president’s election and assassination, featuring many photographs published here for the first time. In his travels throughout America during this period, Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) encountered these responses and photographed what he witnessed. From Washington, D.C., to Buffalo to Minneapolis to Los Angeles, Friedlander has captured a moment in American history that galvanised the nation and continues to resonate today.

A Conspiracy of Images Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and the Art of the Cold War John J. Curley In October 1962, a set of blurred surveillance photographs brought the world to the brink of nuclear apocalypse during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The pictures themselves demonstrated little, and explanatory captions were necessary to identify the danger for the public. In the following months, two artists with antithetical backgrounds arrived at a similar aesthetic: Andy Warhol, who began his career as a commercial artist in New York City, turned to the silkscreened replication of violent photographs. Gerhard Richter, who began as a mural painter in socialist Dresden, East Germany, painted blurred versions of personal and media photographs. In A Conspiracy of Images, author John J. Curley explores how the artists’ developing aesthetic approaches were informed by the political agency and ambiguity of images produced during the Cold War, particularly those disseminated by the mass media on both sides. As the first scholarly consideration of the visual conditions of the Cold War, A Conspiracy of Images provides a new and compelling transatlantic model for Cold War art history. John J. Curley is assistant professor of art history at Wake Forest University.

Beyond LOVE

Essays by Robert Storr and Toby Kamps

Barbara Haskell

With contributions by Susan Sutton and Clare Elliott Luc Tuymans is a painter engaged with ‘figuration’, using imagery that he reworks in a critical or self-critical way. He combines images from various sources – photographs, film stills, mirror images – with a spare palette, unexpected cropping, obscured spaces and blurring to reinforce the painted image’s status as a replica. Perhaps more than any other genre, portraiture allows Tuymans to explore the balance between revealing and concealing. Portraits: Luc Tuymans presents about 30 paintings from bodies of work ranging over the artist’s entire career. Most seem conventional portraits – Himmler, 1997/98, A Flemish Intellectual, 1995 – but others, such as Bloodstains, 1993, and Fingers, 1995, exhibit the artist’s elliptical approach to re-presentation.

With essays by René Paul Barilleaux and Sasha Nicholas Robert Indiana’s popular LOVE works have made the esteemed Pop artist a household name. Their fame and ubiquity have also served to eclipse the rest of his dynamic, conceptually charged work. Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE is a compelling reassessment of the artist’s contributions to American art during his long and prolific career. Indiana has explored the power of language, American identity and personal history for five decades. Although visually dazzling and apparently cheerful on the surface, his imagery has a depth and a darkness that draws on his own biography as well as on the myths, history and literature of the United States.

Wunderkammer Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Inspired by the idea of the ‘wunderkammer’ – ‘wonder-room’ or ‘cabinet of curiosities’ – that originated during the Renaissance, world-renowned architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien invited 42 celebrated architects and designers from around the world to create their own wunderkammers, filling boxes with objects that inspire them. This delightful book gathers together the varied, evocative wunderkammers along with accompanying statements by their architect-creators, including such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Toyo Ito, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Peter Eisenman, Steven Holl, Richard Meier, Murray Moss, Diébédo Francis Keré, Juhani Pallasmaa, Elias Torres and Peter Zumthor. An introduction by Williams and Tsien explains their fascination with the wunderkammer and looks at their own history of collecting. The boxes, each spotlighted in its own section, are explored through each architect’s essay; working drawings and sketchbook pages; construction and installation photos; a list of the items contained; and a photograph of the final box. Wunderkammer offers a new way to think about art and inventiveness, collection and meaning in everyday objects. Tod Williams and Billie Tsien are the founding members of the New York-based architecture firm in their name. Their built works include the recently relocated Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.

The Houses of Louis Kahn George H. Marcus and William Whitaker Louis Kahn is widely admired for his great monumental works, including the Kimbell Art Museum, the Salk Institute and the National Assembly Complex in Bangladesh. However, the importance of his houses has been largely overlooked. This book is the first to look at Kahn’s nine major private houses. Beginning with his earliest encounters with Modernism in the late 1920s and continuing through his iconic work of the 1960s and 1970s, the authors trace the evolution of the architect’s thinking, which began and matured through his design of houses and their interiors, a process inspired by his interactions with clients and his admiration for vernacular building traditions. Richly illustrated with new and period photographs and original drawings, The Houses of Louis Kahn shows how his ideas about domestic spaces challenged conventions, much like his major public commissions, and were developed into one of the most remarkable expressions of the American house. George H. Marcus is adjunct assistant professor of the history of art at the University of Pennsylvania. William Whitaker is curator of the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, which houses the Louis I. Kahn Collection.

Lina Bo Bardi Zeuler R. M. de A. Lima • With a foreword by Barry Bergdoll Lina Bo Bardi, one of the most important architects working in Latin America in the 20th century, was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil with her husband in 1946. In Brazil, her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials like concrete and glass, she added popular building materials and naturalistic forms to her design palette, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that welcomed public life. Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of Bo Bardi’s career and showcases author Zeuler Lima’s extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architect’s activities on two continents and in five cities. The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardi’s intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral and iconic works of design. Zeuler R. M. de A. Lima is an architect and associate professor of history, theory and design at the School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Barry Bergdoll is professor of architectural history in the department of art history and archaeology at Columbia University and the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Impressionist France Visions of Nation from Le Gray to Monet Simon Kelly and April M. Watson • With essays by Neil McWilliam and Maura Coughlin Between 1850 and 1880, Impressionist landscape painting and early forms of photography flourished in France. In the context of massive social and political change that also marked this era, painters and photographers composed competing visions of France as modern and industrialised or as rural and anti-modern. Impressionist France explores the resonances between landscape art and national identity as reflected in the paintings and photographs made during this period, examining in particular the works of artists such as Edouard Baldus, Gustave Le Gray, the Bisson Frères, Edouard Manet, Jean-François Millet, Claude Monet, Charles Nègre and Camille Pissarro.

The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden Guillaume Fonkenell • With essays by Laura D. Corey, Paula Deitz, Bruce Guenther and Sarah Kennel The Tuileries Garden is a masterpiece of garden design and one of the world’s most iconic public art spaces. Designed for Louis XIV by landscape architect André Le Nôtre, it served the now-destroyed Tuileries Palace. It was opened to the public in 1667, becoming one of the first public gardens in Europe. The garden has always been a place for Parisians to convene, celebrate and promenade, and art has played an important role throughout its history. Monumental sculptures give the garden the air of an outdoor museum, and the garden’s beautiful backdrop has inspired artists from Edouard Manet to André Kertész. The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden brings together 100 works of art, including sculpture, painting, as well as documentary photographs, prints and models illuminating the garden’s rich history. Beautifully illustrated essays by leading scholars of art and garden studies highlight the significance of the Tuileries Garden to works of art from the past 300 years and reaffirm its importance to the history of landscape architecture.

Impressionism and Post-Impressionism at the Dallas Museum of Art The Richard R. Brettell Lecture Series Edited by Heather MacDonald • With essays by Richard R. Brettell, André Dombrowski, Stephen F. Eisenmann, Paul Galvez, John House, Richard Kendall, Dorothy Kosinski, Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, Nancy Locke, Belinda Thomson, Richard Thomson and Paul Hayes Tucker Impressionism and Post-Impressionism at the Dallas Museum of Art offers a series of intimate case studies in the history of 19th-century European art. Inspired by a series of public lectures given at the Dallas Museum of Art between 2009 and 2013, the volume comprises twelve beautifully illustrated essays from leading academics and museum specialists. Opening with a new reading of one of Gustave Courbet’s great hunting scenes, The Fox in the Snow, and ending with an exploration of a group of interior scenes by Edouard Vuillard, each essay stands alone as a richly contextualised reading of a single work or group of works by one artist. The authors approach their subjects from a range of methodological perspectives, but all pay close attention to the experience of making and viewing works of art.

Chagall Love, War, and Exile Susan Tumarkin Goodman • With an essay by Kenneth E. Silver Marc Chagall, one of the foremost modernists of the 20th century, created his unique style by blending richly coloured folk art with Cubism, Surrealism and imagery drawn from the Russian Christian icon tradition. Chagall: Love, War, and Exile explores a significant but neglected period in the artist’s career, from the rise of fascism in the 1930s through the end of the Second World War, which he spent in Paris and then in exile in New York. Chagall’s paintings from this time express the horror of the Holocaust as well as hope for the survival of his people and belief in the ultimate triumph of love. Works of this dark period use many of Chagall’s familiar figures – the Artist, the Bride, the Clown, the Wandering Jew – set in unexpected, often wrenching scenes. These contrast with lavish flower paintings that reflect the artist’s adoration of his wife, Bella. Less well known are Chagall’s many canvases depicting the Crucifixion of Jesus, often depicted explicitly as a Jew, and his rarely seen, dreamlike poems, eleven of which are published here. Susan Tumarkin Goodman and Kenneth E. Silver perceptively analyse Chagall’s complex iconography and phantasmagorical style, tracing their Jewish, Christian, autobiographical, French and Russian sources.

André Le Nôtre in Perspective Edited by Patricia Bouchenot-Déchin and Georges Farhat André Le Nôtre, principal gardener to Louis XIV, was France’s greatest landscape and garden designer. The parks created by him at Vaux-le-Vicomte and Versailles are the supreme examples of the French 17th-century style of garden design. He was responsible also for the central pathway through the Tuileries, which became the grand axis of Paris running to the Arc de Triomphe and on to La Défense. This magnificent book sheds new light on the royal gardener’s life and his practice as a landscape architect, engineer and art collector, and examines the legacy of his influence. It highlights his major achievements and enhances our understanding of the French formal-garden model. Le Nôtre’s output is re-examined in terms of its social and cultural contexts; its artistic, technological, material and spatial components; and the dissemination of his ideas. The book contains illustrations of both original documents and the majority of extant drawings by Le Nôtre and his collaborators. Comprehensive and impeccably researched, André Le Nôtre in Perspective brings together the scholarship of some of the world’s leading experts in early-modern art, gardens and allied fields.

Van Gogh Repetitions Eliza Rathbone and William Robinson • With Elizabeth Steele and Marcia Steele Popular perceptions of Vincent van Gogh frequently envision the painter working before nature in an emotional frenzy, yet the artist’s method was more often controlled and deliberate. Van Gogh Repetitions is the first book to focus on the artist’s ‘repetitions’, a term he used to describe his process of producing multiple versions of a composition. Van Gogh ultimately developed a conceptual framework that distinguished his répétitions from copies, études, tableaux and décorations, balancing modernist aspirations towards originality with the creation of multiples. The artist’s practice of producing repetitions was far more extensive and vital to his creative process than is commonly recognised.

Silla

Past as Present in Contemporary China

Korea’s Golden Kingdom

Maxwell K. Hearn With contributions by Wu Hung

Soyoung Lee and Denise Patry Leidy • With contributions by Juhyung Rhi, Insook Lee, Ham Soon-seop, Yoon Sang-deok, Yoon Onshik and Her Hyeong Uk

The Chinese tradition of ‘ink art’ stretches far beyond works in ink, to embrace a set of aesthetic principles centred on renewal and reinterpretation of the past. The 80 works, by 40 contemporary artists, featured in Ink Art range from variations on the written word to radical abstractions to contemporary landscapes, and represent media as diverse as photography, video, ceramic, wood, bronze and stainless steel – as well as traditional ink (which might be on cardboard, polyester or the human body). They include such iconic pieces as Book from the Sky by Xu Bing and Han Jar Overpainted with Coca Cola Logo by Ai Weiwei, ‘pseudo-characters’ by Gu Wenda, handscrolls by Liu Dan, and videos and animation by Qiu Anxiong and Chen Shaoxiong.

The Silla Kingdom, which flourished in Korea from 57 B.C. to 935 A.D., is known for its intricately crafted ornaments, many in resplendent gold, and for the creation of prominent Buddhist temples. Silla focuses on the striking artistic traditions of the Old and Unified Silla Kingdoms (4th–8th century), and is the first publication in English to explore the artistic and cultural legacy of this ancient realm. Among the topics explored are Korea’s position as the eastern culmination of the Silk Road in the first millennium A.D. and the character and evolution of Buddhism, as illuminated by objects from major monuments, temples and tombs. The book also presents new research about Silla’s ancient capital, Gyeongju, which is known for the Gyerim-ro Dagger, as well as the pottery, glass and beads discovered in tombs located there.

Jewels by JAR Adrian Sassoon Called ‘the Fabergé of our time’ by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewellery designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant colour and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pavé sapphires and amethysts. The New York Times has described his jewellery as ‘belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory’, while JAR himself has characterised his work as ‘somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers’. This book, featuring nearly 40 pieces from throughout JAR’s career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewellery creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available in English.

Imran Qureshi With an introduction by Sheena Wagstaff and an interview with the artist by Ian Alteveer and Navina Najat Haidar Named the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year for 2013, Imran Qureshi combines traditional motifs and techniques of Islamic art with contemporary reflections on the relationship between Islam and the West. His investigations into ornamentation reference both the miniature painting of the Mughal tradition, in which he was trained, and large, sitespecific installations in architectural space, which address both the building itself and its historical and political meanings. In May 2013, Qureshi will create the latest rooftop installation for the Metropolitan Museum. This volume discusses the interplay between the artist’s vision and the space for which the work was created. An interview with Qureshi highlights the traditions from which his work derives, as well as the political and aesthetic connotations that inform this latest creation.

Edited by Perrin Stein With essays by Charlotte Guichard, Rena M. Housington, Elizabeth Rudy and Perrin Stein Over the course of the 18th century a great number of artists, ranging from established painters and sculptors to amateurs, experimented with etching, an accessible form of printmaking akin to drawing. In a period when artists strained to navigate the highly regulated Académie Royale and the increasingly discordant public spheres of the marketplace and the Salon, etching afforded them stylistic freedom and allowed them to produce exquisite works of art in a spirit of collaboration and experimentation. Featuring works by Watteau, Boucher, Fragonard, Hubert Robert and many others, Artists and Amateurs embarks on a fresh exploration of how etching flourished in ancien régime France, shedding new light on artistic practice and patronage at that time.

The Devil’s Invention

Medieval Treasures from Hildesheim

European Crossbows, 1250–1850

Edited by Peter Barnet and Michael Brandt

Dirk Breiding The advent of the crossbow more than 2,500 years ago effected dramatic changes for hunters and warriors. For centuries, it was among the most powerful and widely used handheld weapons, and its popularity endures to this day. The Devil’s Invention presents a lively, accessible survey of the crossbow’s ‘golden age’, along with detailed descriptions of twenty-four remarkable examples. Beginning in the middle ages, the European aristocracy’s enthusiasm for the crossbow heralded shooting competitions and pageants that featured elaborately decorated weapons bearing elegant embellishments of rare materials and prized artistry. In addition to being highly functional, these weapons were magnificent works of art. The Devil’s Invention includes fascinating descriptions of crossbows used by Margaret of Savoy and Holy Roman Emperors Maximilian I and Charles V, among others. Dirk Breiding is J. J. Midveckis Curator of Arms and Armor at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Etching in EighteenthCentury France

Hildesheim, Germany, was a leading centre of art between 1000 and 1250, when outstanding precious works, such as the larger-than-life size Ringelheim Crucifix, illuminated manuscripts lavishly bound in jewelled covers and a monumental bronze baptismal font, were commissioned for its churches and cathedral. In 1985, UNESCO designated St. Mary’s Cathedral and St. Michael’s Church in Hildesheim a world cultural heritage site, recognising them as monuments of medieval art with rich treasures. Despite its significance, Hildesheim’s incomparable collection of medieval church furnishings is little known outside of Germany. This book provides the first comprehensive examination in English of the city’s leading role in the art of the Middle Ages.

National Gallery Technical Bulletin

Poussin’s Sacrament of Ordination

Volume 34, Titian’s Painting Technique before 1540

History, Faith, and the Sacred Landscape

Series Editor Ashok Roy

Jonathan W. Unglaub

Edited by Jill Dunkerton and Marika Spring Titian is acclaimed as the greatest of the Venetian masters. His technique has long fascinated painters and collectors, and his use of oil paints and the richly coloured pigments available to him in Venice influenced the subsequent history of European painting. The National Gallery, London, is home to an outstanding group of Titian’s paintings, and this special edition of its annual Technical Bulletin is dedicated to the study of the artist’s technique in the first part of his career. An introductory essay focuses on Titian’s painting technique, from its origins in the workshops of Venice and the Veneto, through close examination of nine works in the gallery’s collection, including the stunning Bacchus and Ariadne. The authors also discuss significant early works from other collections, such as Christ and the Adulteress and The Triumph of Love. New research and discoveries, published here for the first time, will be essential reading for Titian scholars and enthusiasts alike. Ashok Roy is director of collections, Jill Dunkerton is senior restorer and Marika Spring is principal scientific officer, all at the National Gallery, London.

Painted by Nicolas Poussin, The Sacrament of Ordination is a major milestone of FrancoItalian classicism of the 17th century. The magisterial painting depicts Christ’s charge to Saint Peter and offers a profound meditation on nature, faith and the epochal unfolding of sacred history. This lovely book celebrates the work, recently acquired by the Kimbell Art Museum. Jonathan W. Unglaub, esteemed authority on the topic, shows how Poussin ingeniously employed the landscape setting and seemingly incidental figures to imbue the apparently conventional but deceptively meaningful painting with a broad sweep of sacred history. The author also considers the painting in the context of Poussin’s two series of the Seven Sacraments and makes the case that the artist redefined the ambitions of narrative painting and landscape, sowing the seeds of pictorial classicism.

Painting in Latin America, 1550–1820 From Conquest to Independence Luisa Elena Alcala and Jonathan Brown Painting in Latin America, 1550–1820: From Conquest to Independence surveys the diverse styles, subjects and iconography of painting in Latin America between the 16th and 19th centuries. While European art forms were widely disseminated, copied and adapted throughout Latin America, colonial painting is not a derivative extension of Europe. The ongoing debate over what to call it – mestizo, hybrid, creole, indo-hispanic, tequitqui – testifies to a fundamental yet unresolved question of identity. Comparing and contrasting the Viceroyalties of New Spain, with its centre in modern-day Mexico, and Peru, the authors explore the very different ways the two regions responded to the influence of the Europeans and their art. A wide range of art and artists are considered, some for the first time. Rich with new photography and primary research, this book delivers a wealth of new insight into the history of images and the history of art. Luisa Elena Alcala is a professor titular at the department of history and theory of art, Universidad Autónoma Madrid.

Art and Music in Venice From the Renaissance to Baroque Edited by Hilliard T. Goldfarb Artistic and musical creativity thrived in the Venetian Republic between the early 16th century and the close of the 18th century. The city-state was known for its superb operas and splendid balls, and the acoustics of the architecture led to complex polyphony in musical composition. Accordingly, notable composers, including Antonio Vivaldi and Adrian Willaert, developed styles that were distinct from those of other Italian cultures. The Venetian music scene, in turn, influenced visual artists, inspiring paintings by artists such as Jacopo Bassano, Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Pietro Longhi, Bernardo Strozzi, Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo, Tintoretto and Titian. Together, art and music served larger aims, whether social, ceremonial or even political. Lavishly illustrated, Art and Music in Venice brings Venice’s golden age to life through stunning images of paintings, drawings, prints, manuscripts, textbooks, illuminated choir books, musical scores and instruments, and period costumes. New scholarship into these objects by a team of distinguished experts gives a fresh perspective on the cultural life and creative output of the era.

Goya in the Norton Simon Museum Juliet Wilson-Bareau • Edited by Leah Lehmbeck During his lifetime, the industrialist and collector Norton Simon amassed a trove of European paintings, drawings and prints by Rembrandt, Picasso, Degas and others. Simon occasionally became fascinated with a particular artist’s oeuvre, and that passion inspired him to assemble monographic holdings of work by several masters, chief among them Francisco de Goya. This book examines the extraordinary Goya collection, which includes more than 1,400 prints, a drawing and three paintings, in the founder’s namesake museum. Simon’s enduring interest in serial images led him to acquire prints from various series and editions, and to compare and contrast seemingly identical ones. Spotlighting rare proofs and single prints, the catalogue also presents a complete set each of Los Caprichos, Disasters of War and other seminal series. Juliet Wilson-Bareau is a pre-eminent scholar of Goya’s work. Leah Lehmbeck is curator at the Norton Simon Museum, where she oversees the 19th- and 20th-century collections.

62 Art Edited by Barry Rosen With a foreword by Susan Fisher Sterling and contributions by Jo Applin, Todd Alden and Kirsten Swenson In 1964 the industrialist Friedrich Arnhard Scheidt invited Eva Hesse and her husband, Tom Doyle, to a residency in Kettwig an der Ruhr, Germany. The following fifteen months marked a significant transformation in Hesse’s practice. The artist’s studio space was located in an abandoned textile factory that contained machine parts, tools and materials that served as inspiration for her complex, linear mechanical drawings and paintings. In 1965 Hesse expanded on this theme and began using objects found in the factory and papiermâché, to produce a series of fourteen vibrantly coloured reliefs that venture into three-dimensional space with such materials as wood, metal and cord protruding from the picture plane.

New Jersey as Non-Site Kelly Baum Between 1950 and 1975, some of the postwar era’s most innovative artists flocked to a very unexpected place: New Jersey. Appreciating what others tended to ignore or mock, they gravitated to the state’s most desolate peripheries: its industrial wastescapes, crumbling cities, crowded highways and banal suburbs. There they produced some of the most important work of their careers. The breakthroughs in land, conceptual, performance, and sitespecific art that New Jersey helped catalyse are the subject of New Jersey as Non-Site, whose title evokes the mixed-media sculptures that Robert Smithson began to create in 1968 while driving the state’s highways with Nancy Holt. This catalogue and the accompanying exhibition examine more than 100 works by sixteen artists, including Amiri Baraka, George Brecht, Dan Graham, Allan Kaprow, Gordon Matta-Clark and George Segal.

With new scholarship and previously unpublished illustrations, Eva Hesse 1965 highlights key drawings, paintings and reliefs from this time, and demonstrates how the artist was able to rethink her approach to colour, materials and space, and begin moving toward sculpture, preparing herself for the momentous strides that she would take upon her return to New York.

Volume Two: 1975–1986

Edited by Carlos Basualdo

Edited by Patrick Pardo and Robert Dean Compiling four-hundred-plus unique works of art, this volume traces the shifts and developments in conceptual artist John Baldessari’s work from 1975-86. It covers his photobased works such as the ‘Strobe’, ‘Word Chain’ and ‘Pathetic Fallacy’ series from 1975; the ‘Violent Space’ and the seminal ‘Concerning Diachronic/Synchronic Time: Above, On, Under (With Mermaid)’, from 1976; and the ‘Blasted Allegories’ series from 1977–78, which drew heavily from the artist’s vast collection of photo stills taken from commercial television. An introductory critical essay will provide a close reading of selected works and a historical context for understanding Baldessari’s art from this period. A detailed chronology and exhibition history and bibliography are also included. This is the second in a projected four-volume series of the complete catalogue of works by John Baldessari. Patrick Pardo is research editor and Robert Dean is editorial director of the John Baldessari Catalogue Raisonné.

Rebirth Recent Work by Mariko Mori Edited and with a foreword by Miwako Tezuka • Essays by Brett Littman and Takayo Iida Contemporary artist Mariko Mori has transformed herself many times since her memorable debut onto the international art scene in the mid1990s. Over the past two decades, Mori has made a significant shift in the focus of her work, moving away from self-obsessive motifs and performance pieces to a diametrically opposite approach of self-effacement. Her own image has disappeared from her Pop-oriented work, and her interest now inclines toward the prehistoric world in which everything existed in an amorphous state without text, religion, nation, or division between humankind and nature. This fascinating book features over 35 immersive installations, sculptures, drawings (including previously unpublished works) and videos produced by the artist between 2003 and 2012. Exhibition Japan Society Gallery, 11/10/2013 – 12/01/2014 Miwako Tezuka is director of Japan Society Gallery. Brett Littman is executive director of The Drawing Center, New York.

God Is Beautiful and Loves Beauty The Object in Islamic Art and Culture Edited by Sheila Blair and Jonathan Bloom The Islamic world, spanning centuries and far-flung regions, is renowned for its diverse cultural and artistic traditions. This sumptuous book delves into that vast creative output, examining a dozen exquisite objects in the Museum of Islamic Art, in Doha, Qatar, designed by the Chinese-American architect I. M. Pei and opened in 2008. Twelve prominent scholars from across the globe select works representing various centres of Islamic life, from early Spain to 17th-century India, as well as a range of media including textiles, ceramics, metalwork and miniature paintings. Authoritative texts put the objects into context, exploring the relationships to those people who produced and lived among them.

Iran Modern

An American Style

Edited by Fereshteh Daftari and Layla S. Diba

Global Sources for New York Textile and Fashion Design, 1915–1927

Supported by a thriving art market in the Persian Gulf, interest in Iranian modern art has intensified in recent years. Iran Modern offers a timely exploration of the cultural diversity and production of avant-garde art in Iran after the Second World War and up to the revolution – from 1950 through 1979. Ten essays by distinguished scholars of art and history elucidate the early development of Iranian artists, patrons, galleries, art schools, architects, and writers who influenced and participated in the dynamic decades of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The essays describe a time when Iran experienced an outpouring of original and creative modern art and when the country was very much a part of the international art world. Exhibition Asia Society Museum, 07/09/13 – 05/01/14 Fereshteh Daftari is an independent scholar who was a curator with The Museum of Modern Art, New York from 1988–2009. Layla S. Diba is an independent scholar who was Hagop Kevorkian Curator of Islamic Art at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the director and chief curator of the Negarestan Museum in Tehran from 1975–1979.

Ann Marguerite Tartsinis In 1915 the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) embarked upon a mission to energise the American textile industry. Curators sought to innovate a distinctly ‘American’ design idiom drawing on a more universal ‘primitive’ language. Ethnographic objects were included in study rooms; designers gained access to storage rooms; and museum artifacts were loaned to design houses and department stores. In order to attract designers and reluctant manufacturers, who quickly responded, collections were supplemented with specimens including fur garments from Siberia, Persian costumes and Javanese textiles. This book positions the project at the AMNH in the broader narrative of early 20th-century design education in New York which includes the roles of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the Newark Museum.

Eduardo L. Cadava and Gabriela Nouzeilles With contributions by Joan Fontcuberta, Valeria Gonzalez, Tom Keenan, Mauricio Lissovsky and John Mraz While photographs have been exchanged and appropriated in different contexts since the 19th century, their movement is now occurring at unprecedented speed. This book examines photography’s capacity to circulate across time and space as well as across media, such as art, literature and cinema. Taking its point of departure from Latin American and Spanish photographic archives, the volume offers an alternative history of photography by focusing on the transnational dimension of technological traffic and image production at a time when photography is at the centre of debates on the role of representation, authorship and reception in global culture. Exhibition Princeton University Art Museum, 07/09/13 – 19/01/14 Eduardo L. Cadava is professor of English at Princeton University.

Rituals of Rented Island Object Theater, Loft Performance, and the New Psychodrama – Manhattan, 1970–1982 Jay Sanders with J. Hoberman This important volume explores three unique performance art practices of the 1970s and early 1980s: ‘object theatre’ (in which artists engage directly with the objects in the world around them); ‘loft performance’ (where artists performed in lofts, storefronts and the alternative spaces of New York’s SoHo); and ‘new psychodrama’ (in which artists drew on formal performance modes to explore everyday experience). By tracing the paths of such artists as Stuart Sherman, Julia Heyward, Jared Bark and Jill Kroesen, this catalogue makes newly visible a critical period in the development of performance art. Rituals of Rented Island examines the disparate yet related practices of the artists mentioned above alongside those of the notorious Kipper Kids; composer-musician John Zorn; and legendary playwright and filmmaker Jack Smith; among others.

Made in the U.S.A. American Masterworks from The Phillips Collection Edited by Susan Behrends Frank With essays by Susan Behrends Frank and Eliza Rathbone American art has been essential to The Phillips Collection since its founding by Duncan Phillips in 1921. Phillips acquired the work of living American artists when it was unpopular to do so and promoted diversity, as seen in works by self-taught artists, artists of colour, and naturalised Americans, resulting in a rich assembly of independent-minded artists. The Phillips Collection’s superb collection of American art, acquired over half a century, is presented here for the first time in a comprehensive overview, featuring 160 works from heroes of the late 19th century – such as William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer, who set the course for modern art in America – to abstract expressionists Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko, whose efforts to create a new visual language following the Second World War brought a new global significance to American art.

Strange Eggs Claes Oldenburg and Michelle White In 1957–58, after he moved to New York’s Lower East Side, Claes Oldenburg began making collages he has described as ‘mostly done in an uncontrolled and intuitive dream mode’. Made from found, printed photographic imagery, the Strange Eggs are enigmatic, surrealistic, and vastly different from the Pop art of the 1960s for which he soon became famous.

Antonio Berni, Carnaval de Juanito, 1962, collage, private collection

Inspired by the original avant-garde collage artists, these works are characterised by self-contained forms, or ‘eggs’, the artist made by melding cut fragments of photographic reproductions. While many of the pieces are unrecognisable, within the amalgamations some original references are discernible: a piece of pie, the hind leg of a horse, the creased skin of a clenched fist and the texture of concrete. These eighteen collages were first shown in their entirety at the Menil Collection in 2012 and are being published here for the first time, close to actual size and with a short text by Menil curator Michelle White.

Jennifer Bartlett: History of the Universe Works 1970–2011 Klaus Ottmann, Terrie Sultan and Jennifer Bartlett A critical and commercial success since the 1970s, Jennifer Bartlett has become one of the most visionary and influential artists of our time. In the words of New York Times critic John Russell, Bartlett’s art ‘enlarges our notion of time, and of memory, and of change, and of painting itself ’. Her abundant intelligence and inventiveness allow her to synthesise diverse sources and styles, and imbue her paintings with expressive life and moral imagination. Also included are an intimate interview with the artist, and an excerpt from History of the Universe, Bartlett’s first novel, giving further insight into the thought processes of the artist.

Antonio Berni Juanito and Ramona Mari Carmen Ramírez and Marcelo E. Pacheco Argentinian figurative artist Antonio Berni is known for his aesthetic originality and for art steeped in social commentary. In the 1950s, he inaugurated a series of works that documented the lives of two fictional characters, Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel. Through the stories of Juanito, a denizen of Argentina’s shantytowns, and Ramona, who rises from the working class to the upper echelons of society, Berni addressed topics from industrialisation to neocolonialism to economic backwardness and their effects on the population of underdeveloped countries. Written by leading scholars of Latin American art, this volume presents the first comprehensive survey of the acclaimed Juanito and Ramona series.

The 54th Massachusetts Regiment and Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Shaw Memorial

American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine

Sarah Greenough and Nancy Anderson With contributions by Lindsay Harris and Reneé Ater Foreword by Richard J. Powell On July 18, 1863, six months after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, one of the first American units composed of African Americans stormed Fort Wagner in South Carolina, led by Colonel Robert Shaw Gould. Although the regiment suffered great losses, the Massachusetts 54th Volunteer Infantry legitimised the idea of blacks serving in the military, and Lincoln considered their sacrifice a turning point in the Civil War. Twenty years later, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens began work on a bronze memorial for this heroic troop, which was installed on the Boston Common in 1897. Tell It With Pride explores the enduring significance of this beloved monument.

Edited by Judith A. Barter With essays by Judith A. Barter, Annelise K. Madsen, Sarah Kelly Oehler, Ellen E. Roberts and Nancy Siegel Art and Appetite takes a fascinating new look at depictions of food in American art, demonstrating that the artists’ representations of edibles offer thoughtful reflection on the cultural, political, economic and social moments in which they were created. Using food as an emblem, artists were able to both celebrate and critique their society, expressing ideas relating to politics, race, class, gender and commerce. Focusing on the late 18th century through the Pop artists of the 20th century, this book investigates meanings and interpretations of eating in America and features still life, trompe l’oeil painting, sculpture and other works, by artists such as William Merritt Chase, John Singleton Copley, Elizabeth Paxton, Norman Bel Geddes, Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Alice Neel, Wayne Thiebaud, Roy Lichtenstein and many more.

American Adversaries West and Copley in a Transatlantic World Emily Ballew Neff and Kaylin H.

Initially friends but eventually rivals, the artists painted events as they happened, illustrating the transformation of imperial power through diplomacy between British Americans and the Iroquois, and through transatlantic trade, exploration and the natural history of the West Indies. Focusing on two iconic works, West’s The Death of General Wolfe and Copley’s Watson and the Shark, American Adversaries charts the rise of contemporary history painting, and offers a compelling examination of American history and New World exploration.

Painted Performance

Thomas Sully painted some of the most dynamic personalities of the 19th century. Although he created more than two thousand portraits and subject paintings, his full production has never before been examined in depth. The child of actors, Sully’s lifelong connection to the theatre informed his imagination. His portraits of 19th-century actors, celebrities, royalty and politicians established his reputation, and would mark all his works, particularly his ‘fancy pictures’, portraits evoking scenes from literature, fairy tales, Shakespeare, or of his own devising.

Diasporas of the Mind Jewish and Postcolonial Writing and the Nightmare of History Bryan Cheyette In this fascinating and erudite book, Bryan Cheyette throws new light on a wide range of modern and contemporary writers – some at the heart of the canon, others more marginal – to explore the power and limitations of the diasporic imagination after the Second World War. Moving from early responses to the death camps and decolonisation, through internationally prominent literature after the Second World War, the book culminates in fresh engagements with contemporary Jewish, post-ethnic and postcolonial writers. Cheyette regards many of the 20th- and 21st-century luminaries he examines – among them Hannah Arendt, Anita Desai, Frantz Fanon, Albert Memmi, Primo Levi, Caryl Phillips, Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, Edward Said, Zadie Smith and Muriel Spark – as critical exemplars of the diasporic imagination. Against the discrete disciplinary thinking of the academy, he elaborates and argues for a new comparative approach across Jewish and postcolonial histories and literatures. And in so doing, Cheyette illuminates the ways in which histories and cultures can be imagined across national and communal boundaries. January 336 pp. 234x156mm. HB ISBN 978-0-300-09318-6 £30.00

Swann’s Way In Search of Lost Time, Volume 1 The C. K. Scott Moncrieff Translation Marcel Proust • Edited and Annotated by William C. Carter One hundred years have passed since Marcel Proust published the first volume of what was to become a seven-volume masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. In the intervening century his famously compelling novel has never been out of print and has been translated into dozens of languages. English-language readers were fortunate to have an early and fine translation of the novel from Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff. With the passage of time, however, the need for corrections, revisions and annotations to the Scott Montcrieff translation has become apparent. Esteemed Proust scholar William C. Carter celebrates the publication centennial of Swann’s Way with a new, more accurate and illuminating edition of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time. Carter corrects previous translating missteps to bring readers closer to Proust’s intentions while also providing enlightening notes to clarify biographical, historical and social contexts. Presented in a readerfriendly format alongside the text, these annotations will enrich and deepen the experience of Proust’s novel, immersing readers in the world of an unsurpassed literary genius.

Dream in Shakespeare

Reading Dante

From Metaphor to Metamorphosis

Giuseppe Mazzotta

Marjorie Garber With a new preface by the author Dream is a central image for Shakespeare, encompassing at once the terrors of the irrational and the creative powers of the imagination – one’s deepest fears and highest aspirations. Used in the early plays as a verbal or structural device, dream becomes, in the tragedies and late romances, a transforming experience which leads the dreamer towards a moment of self-awareness. In this illuminating study, now reissued with a new preface by the author, Marjorie Garber skillfully charts the development of Shakespeare’s use of dream from the opening lines of Richard III to the magic of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Hamlet’s most famous soliloquy. Drawing on the works of Freud and other psychologists, but basing its argument on the language and dramatic structure of the plays themselves, Dream in Shakespeare presents a coherent and innovative reading of the plays and their developing concept of dream. Marjorie Garber is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of English and Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University, and chair of the committee on Dramatic Arts.

A towering figure in world literature, Dante wrote his great epic poem Commedia in the early 14th century. The work gained universal acclaim and came to be known as La Divina Commedia, or The Divine Comedy. Giuseppe Mazzotta brings Dante and his masterpiece to life in this exploration of the man, his cultural milieu and his unendingly fascinating works. Based on Mazzotta’s highly popular Yale course, this book offers a critical reading of The Divine Comedy and selected other works by Dante. Through an analysis of Dante’s autobiographical Vita nuova, Mazzotta establishes the poetic and political circumstances of The Divine Comedy. He situates the three sections of the poem – Inferno, Purgatory, Paradise – within the intellectual and social context of the late Middle Ages, and he explores the political, philosophical and theological topics with which Dante was particularly concerned. Giuseppe Mazzotta is Sterling Professor of Humanities in Italian, Yale University. A specialist in medieval literature, he also addresses all periods of Italian literature and culture in his extensive writings. The Open Yale Courses Series

The 2012 winner of the Yale Drama Series A fifteen-year-old boy decides to accompany his severely depressed high school French teacher on a road trip to the Canadian province of Quebec, where the mother tongue of Voltaire and Balzac is still spoken and cherished. Clarence Coo’s mesmerising new play is a delicious amalgam of farce and tragedy, a carnival funhouse with very dark corners. Wildly inventive and heartbreakingly sad, the strange odyssey of Jimmy and the unpredictable Mr. Green takes many surprising turns, crossing the border from reality into unreality and back again while encountering displaced characters from history, literature and the mundane, often dangerous world. Selected by Tony Award-winning playwright John Guare from over 1,000 submissions from 29 countries, Clarence Coo’s Beautiful Province is the sixth winner of the DC Horn Foundation/Yale Drama Series Prize.

The African Shore

The Hooligan’s Return

Rodrigo Rey Rosa

A Memoir

Translated by Jeffrey Gray

Norman Manea

In the vein of the writings of Paul Bowles, Paul Theroux and V. S. Naipaul, The African Shore marks a major new instalment in the genre of dystopic travel fiction. Rodrigo Rey Rosa, prominent in today’s Guatemalan literary world and an author of growing international reputation, presents a tale of alienation, misrecognition, and intrigue set in and around Tangier. He weaves a double narrative involving a Colombian tourist pleasurably stranded in Morocco and a young shepherd who dreams of migrating to Spain and of ‘riches to come’. At the centre of their tale is an owl both treasured and coveted. Rey Rosa generates a powerful reality within his imagined world, and he maintains a narrative tension to the haunting conclusion, raising small and large questions that linger in the reader’s mind long after the final page.

At the centre of The Hooligan’s Return is the author himself, always an outcast, on a bleak lifelong journey through Nazism and communism to exile in America. But while Norman Manea’s book is in many ways a memoir, it is also a deeply imaginative work, traversing time and place, life and literature, dream and reality, past and present. Autobiographical events merge with historic elements, always connecting the individual with the collective destiny. Manea speaks of the bloodiest time of the 20th century and of the emergence afterward of a global, competitive and sometimes cynical modern society. The Hooligan’s Return achieves a subtle internal harmony as anxiety evolves into a delicate irony and a burlesque fantasy. Norman Manea is Francis Flournoy Professor of European Culture and writer-in-residence at Bard College. Since arriving in the West from his native Romania he has received many awards, and his work has been translated into more than twenty languages. Angela Jianu is a translator and historian.

Translated by Wyatt Mason

Translated by Jody Gladding and Elizabeth Deshays

This spare, unforgettable novel is Pierre Michon’s luminous exploration of the mysteries of desire. A young teacher takes his first job in a sleepy French town. Lost in a succession of rainy days and sleepless nights, he falls under the spell of a town resident, a woman of seductive beauty and singular charm. Yvonne. Yvonne. ‘Everything about her screamed desire … setting something in motion while settling a fingertip to the counter, turning her head slightly, gold earrings brushing her cheek while she watched you or watched nothing at all; this desire was open, like a wound; and she knew it, wore it with valor, with passion’. Michon probes the destructive powers of passion and the consuming need for love in this heartbreaking novel.

One of Pierre Michon’s most powerful works, this book imagines decisive moments in the lives of five artists of different times and places: Vincent van Gogh, Francisco Goya, Antoin Watteau, Claude Lorrain and Lorentino, a little-remembered disciple of Piero della Francesca. Each story is a masterpiece that transcends national boundaries and earns its place among the essential works of world literature.

Rimbaud The Son, widely celebrated upon its publication in France, investigates the life of a writer, the writing life and the art of life-writing. Pierre Michon examines the storied life of the French poet Arthur Rimbaud by means of a new literary genre: a meditation on the life of a legend as witnessed by his contemporaries, those who knew him before the legends took hold. Michon introduces us to Rimbaud the son, friend, schoolboy, renegade, drunk, sexual libertine, visionary and ultimately poet. Michon focuses no less on the creative act: What presses a person to write? To pursue excellence? Jody Gladding, a poet and translator, has translated over twenty books from the French. Elizabeth Deshays is a teacher, translator and landscape artist.

Philosophy of Dreams

Civil Disobedience

Christoph Türcke

An American Tradition

Translated by Susan H. Gillespie

Lewis Perry

Why has mankind developed so differently from other animals? How and why did language, culture, religion and the arts come into being? Christoph Türcke offers a new answer to these questions by scrutinising the phenomenon of the dream, using it as a psychic fossil connecting us with our Stone Age ancestors. Provocatively, he argues that both civilisation and mental processes are the results of a compulsion to repeat early traumas, one to which hallucination, imagination, mind, spirit and God all developed in response. Until the beginning of the modern era, repetition was synonymous with de-escalation and calming down. Then, automatic machinery gave rise to a new type of repetition, whose effects are permanent alarm and distraction. The new global forces of distraction, Türcke argues, are producing a specific kind of stress that breaks down the barriers between dreams and waking consciousness. Türcke’s essay ends with a sobering indictment of this psychic deregulation and the social and economic deregulations that have accompanied it. Christoph Türcke is professor of philosophy and religion at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig.

The American tradition of civil disobedience stretches back to preRevolutionary War days. Tracing the origins of the notion of civil disobedience to 18th-century evangelicalism and republicanism, Lewis Perry discusses how the tradition took shape in the actions of black and white abolitionists and antiwar protesters in the decades leading to the Civil War, then found new expression in post-Civil War campaigns for women’s equality, temperance and labour reform. Gaining new strength and clarity from explorations of Thoreau’s essays and Gandhi’s teachings, the tradition persisted through the Second World War, grew stronger during the decades of civil rights protest and antiwar struggles, and has been adopted more recently by antiabortion groups, advocates of same-sex marriage, opponents of nuclear power and many others. Perry clarifies some of the central implications of civil disobedience that have become blurred in recent times and highlights the dilemmas faced by those who choose to violate laws in the name of a higher morality. Lewis Perry is John Francis Bannon, S.J., Professor Emeritus, Department of History, Saint Louis University.

A Theory of Militant Democracy The Ethics of Combatting Political Extremism Alexander S. Kirshner How should pro-democratic forces safeguard representative government from anti-democratic forces? By granting rights of participation to groups that do not share democratic values, democracies may endanger the very rights they have granted; but denying these rights may also undermine democratic values. Alexander Kirshner offers a set of principles for determining when one may reasonably refuse rights of participation, and he defends this theory through real-world examples, ranging from the far-right British Nationalist Party to Turkey’s Islamist Welfare Party to America’s Democratic Party during Reconstruction. Alexander S. Kirshner is an assistant professor of political science at Duke University and a senior fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics.

Adam Smith’s Pluralism Rationality, Education, and the Moral Sentiments Jack Russell Weinstein In this thought-provoking study, Jack Russell Weinstein suggests the foundations of liberalism can be found in the writings of Adam Smith (1723–1790), a pioneer of modern economic theory and major figure in the Scottish Enlightenment. While offering an interpretive methodology for approaching Smith’s two major works, The Theory of Moral Sentiments and The Wealth of Nations, Weinstein argues against the libertarian interpretation of Smith, emphasising his philosophies of education and rationality. Weinstein also demonstrates that Smith should be recognised for a prescient theory of pluralism that prefigures current theories of cultural diversity. Jack Russell Weinstein is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Institute for Philosophy in Public Life at the University of North Dakota.

The Warburg Years (1919–1933) Essays on Language, Art, Myth, and Technology Ernst Cassirer • Translated and with an introduction by S. G. Lofts with A. Calcagno The Jewish German philosopher Ernst Cassirer was one of the leading proponents of the Marburg school of neo-Kantianism. The essays in this volume provide a window into Cassirer’s discovery of the symbolic nature of human existence – the fact that our entire emotional and intellectual life is configured and formed through the originary expressive power of word and image, that it is in and through the symbolic cultural systems of language, art, myth, religion, science and technology that human life realises itself and attains not only its form, its visibility, but also its reality. S. G. Lofts and A. Calcagno are professors of philosophy at King’s University College at Western University, London, Canada.

Talent Wants to Be Free

Through a Screen Darkly

Why We Should Learn to Love Leaks, Raids, and Free Riding

Popular Culture, Public Diplomacy, and America’s Image Abroad

Orly Lobel This timely book challenges conventional business wisdom about competition, secrecy, motivation and creativity. Orly Lobel warns that a set of counterproductive mentalities are stifling innovation in many regions and companies. In every industry battles to recruit, retain, train, energise and motivate the best people are fierce. Lobel uncovers factors that produce winners or losers in the talent wars. Combining behavioural experiments with observations of contemporary battles over ideas, secrets and skill, Lobel identifies motivation, relationships and mobility as the most important ingredients for successful innovation. Yet many companies relying more on patents, copyright, branding, espionage and restrictions of their own talent than on creative energies that are waiting to be unleashed. Lobel presents a set of positive changes in corporate strategies, industry norms, regional policies and national laws that will incentivise talent flow, creativity and growth. Orly Lobel is Herzog Professor of Law at the University of San Diego, where she is founding member and professor of the Center for Intellectual Property and Markets.

Martha Bayles What does the world admire most about America? Science, technology, higher education, consumer goods – but not, it seems, freedom and democracy. Indeed, these ideals are in global retreat, for reasons ranging from ill-conceived foreign policy to the financial crisis and the sophisticated propaganda of modern authoritarians. Another reason, explored for the first time in this pathbreaking book, is the distorted picture of freedom and democracy found in America’s cultural exports. In interviews with thoughtful observers in eleven countries, Martha Bayles heard many objections to the violence and vulgarity pervading today’s popular culture. But she also heard a deeper complaint: namely, that America no longer shares the best of itself. Tracing this change to the end of the Cold War, Bayles shows how public diplomacy was scaled back, and inyour-face entertainment became America’s de facto ambassador. Martha Bayles is the author of Hole in Our Soul: The Loss of Beauty and Meaning in American Popular Music. She teaches humanities at Boston College.

The modern-day Chinese and US economies have been locked in an uncomfortable embrace since the late 1970s. Although the relationship was built on a set of mutual benefits, in recent years it has taken on the trappings of an unstable co-dependence. This insightful book lays bare the pitfalls of the current China-US economic relationship, highlighting disputes over trade policies and intellectual property rights, sharp contrasts in leadership styles, the role of the internet and the political economy of social stability. Roach describes a way out of the escalating tensions of co-dependence and insists that the Next China offers much for the Next America – and vice versa.

Water 4.0 The Past, Present, and Future of the World’s Most Vital Resource David L. Sedlak Turn on the tap, and water pours out. Pull out the plug, and the dirty water disappears. Most of us give little thought to the hidden systems that bring us water and take it away, but these underappreciated marvels of engineering face an array of challenges that cannot be solved without a fundamental change to our relationship with water, explains this book. To make informed decisions about the future, we need to understand the three revolutions in urban water systems that have occurred over the past 2,500 years and the technologies that will remake the system. The author starts by describing Water 1.0, the early Roman aqueducts, fountains and sewers that made dense urban living feasible. He then details the development of drinking water and sewage treatment systems – the second and third revolutions in urban water. He offers an insider’s look at current systems that rely on reservoirs, underground pipe networks, treatment plants and storm sewers to provide water that is safe to drink, before addressing how these water systems will have to be reinvented. For everyone who cares about reliable, clean, abundant water, this book is essential reading. David L. Sedlak is the Malozemoff Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Climate Casino Risk, Uncertainty, and Economics for a Warming World William Nordhaus Climate change is profoundly altering our world in ways that pose major risks to human societies and natural systems. We have entered the Climate Casino and are rolling the global-warming dice, warns economist William Nordhaus. But there is still time to turn around and walk back out of the casino, and in this essential book the author explains how. Bringing together all the important issues surrounding the climate debate, Nordhaus describes the science, economics and politics involved – and the steps necessary to reduce the perils of global warming. Using accessible language and taking care to present different points of view, he discusses the problem from the beginning, where warming originates in our personal energy use, to the end, where societies employ regulations or taxes or subsidies to slow the emissions of gases responsible for climate change. Nordhaus offers a new analysis of why earlier policies, such as the Kyoto Protocol, failed to slow carbon dioxide emissions, how new approaches can succeed, and which policy tools will most effectively reduce emissions. In short, he clarifies a defining problem of our times and lays out the next critical steps for slowing the trajectory of global warming. William Nordhaus is Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University. He is author of the award-winning A Question of Balance: Weighing the Options on Global Warming Policies, published by Yale.

The Bet Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earth’s Future Paul Sabin In 1980, the iconoclastic economist Julian Simon challenged celebrity biologist Paul Ehrlich to a bet. Their wager on the future prices of five metals captured the public’s imagination as a test of coming prosperity or doom. Ehrlich, author of the landmark book The Population Bomb, predicted that rising populations would cause overconsumption, resource scarcity and famine – with apocalyptic consequences for humanity. Simon optimistically countered that human welfare would flourish thanks to flexible markets, technological change and our collective ingenuity. The Bet weaves the two men’s lives and ideas together with the era’s partisan political clashes over the environment and the role of government. In a lively narrative leading from the dawning environmentalism of the 1960s through the pivotal presidential contest between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and on into the 1990s, Paul Sabin shows how the fight between Ehrlich and Simon – between environmental fears and free-market confidence – helped create the gulf separating environmentalists and their critics today. Paul Sabin is associate professor, Department of History, Yale University. He was founding director of the Environmental Leadership Program, a national nonprofit organisation.

Photography by Brent Stephenson New Zealand’s birdlife developed extraordinary diversity as consequence of evolving on isolated islands without mammalian predators. For many years, habitat destruction brought on by humans posed a distinct threat to the wide variety of birdlife, but thanks to recent conservation efforts, many of the country’s species of birds are now protected in parks and island sanctuaries. Illustrated with nearly a thousand new photographs from one of New Zealand’s top nature photographers and drawing on the latest information from birders and biologists, Birds of New Zealand offers a definitive introduction to the identification and behaviour of the country’s extraordinary avian life. The book includes expert and up-to-date information on the 345 bird species found in New Zealand, including species ranging from albatrosses and shearwaters to kiwi and kaka. It will be a valuable addition to the existing literature on birding. Paul Scofield is Curator of Vertebrate Zoology at Canterbury Museum in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The Future of Nature

Field Experiments and Their Critics

Documents of Global Change

Essays on the Uses and Abuses of Experimentation in the Social Sciences

Edited by Libby Robin, Sverker Sörlin and Paul Warde

Edited by Dawn Langan Teele

This anthology provides a comprehensive overview of the science behind environmental prediction and how, as predictions about environmental change have been taken more seriously and widely, they have affected politics, policy and public perception. Through an array of texts and commentaries that examine the themes of progress, population, environment, biodiversity and sustainability, it shows how 21st century predictors should think about what forecasting the future means from a fully global perspective. Providing access and reference points to the origins and development of key disciplines and methods, it will encourage policy makers, professionals and students to reflect on the roots of their own theories and practices.

In recent years, social scientists have engaged in a deep debate over the methods appropriate to their research. Their long reliance on passive observational collection of information has been challenged by proponents of experimental methods designed to precisely infer causal effects through active intervention in the social world. Some scholars claim that field experiments represent a new gold standard and the best way forward, while others insist that these methods carry inherent inconsistencies, limitations or ethical dilemmas that observational approaches do not. This unique collection of essays by the most influential figures on every side of this debate reveals its most important stakes and will provide useful guidance to students and scholars in many disciplines.

Libby Robin is professor of environmental history in the Fenner School of Environment and Society at Australian National University and a Senior Research Fellow in the National Museum of Australia Research Centre. Sverker Sörlin is a professor of environmental history at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. Paul Warde is a reader in environmental and economic history at the University of East Anglia, an associate lecturer at the University of Cambridge, and associate research fellow at the Centre for History and Economics at Cambridge.

‘An excellent book on a subject that lies at the center of current methodological debates in the social sciences. The volume brings together many of the leading protagonists and antagonists (i.e., skeptics) of the experimental method and in the process illustrates the strengths, and the limitations, of this powerful method. Astute and readable. Highly recommended.’ – John Gerring, author of Social Science Methodology: A Unified Framework

The Proteus Paradox

Raising Henry

How Online Games and Virtual Worlds Change Us – And How They Don’t

A Memoir of Motherhood, Disability, and Discovery

Nick Yee Proteus, the mythical sea god who could alter his appearance at will, embodies one of the promises of online games: the ability to reinvent oneself. Yet inhabitants of virtual worlds rarely achieve this liberty, Nick Yee contends. In fact, though online games evoke a sense of freedom and escapism, careful research demonstrates that nothing could be farther from the truth. Yee shows that virtual worlds perpetuate social norms and stereotypes from the offline world, encouraging racism, misogyny, superstitious thinking and other malicious attitudes. Further, the author finds that virtual worlds provide unparalleled – but rarely recognised – tools for controlling how players think and behave. Yee breaks down misconceptions about who plays fantasy games and the extent to which the online and offline worlds operate separately. With a wealth of entertaining and provocative examples, he explains in lay terms what virtual worlds are about and why they matter.

Rachel Adams Rachel Adams’s life had always gone to plan. She had an adoring husband, a two-year-old son, a sunny Manhattan apartment and a position at Columbia University. Everything changed with the birth of her second child, Henry. Just minutes after he was born, doctors told her that Henry had Down syndrome, and she knew that her life would never be the same. In this honest, self-critical and surprisingly funny book, Adams chronicles the first three years of Henry’s life and her own transformative experience of unexpectedly becoming the mother of a disabled child. A highly personal story of one family’s encounter with disability, Raising Henry is also an insightful exploration of today’s knotty terrain of social prejudice, disability policy, genetics, prenatal testing, medical training and inclusive education. Adams untangles the contradictions of living in a society that is more enlightened and supportive of people with disabilities than ever before, yet is racing to perfect prenatal tests to prevent children like Henry from being born.

Nick Yee is a senior research scientist at Ubisoft, where he studies online game player behaviour. He is widely known for the Daedalus Project, an extensive study of online role playing.

The Global War for Internet Governance

The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child

Laura DeNardis

Edited by Claudia Lament and Robert A. King

The internet has transformed the manner in which information is exchanged and business is conducted, arguably more than any other communication development in the past century. Despite its wide reach and powerful global influence, it is a medium uncontrolled by any one centralised system, organisation or governing body, a reality that has given rise to all manner of free-speech issues and cybersecurity concerns. The conflicts surrounding internet governance are the new spaces where political and economic power is unfolding in the 21st century. This study reveals the inner power structure already in place within the architectures and institutions of Internet governance. It provides a theoretical framework for internet governance that takes into account the privatisation of global power as well as the role of sovereign nations and international treaties. In addition, DeNardis explores what is at stake in open global controversies and stresses the responsibility of the public to actively engage in these debates. Laura DeNardis is an associate professor in the School of Communication at American University.

Jewish Studies 77

A Social History of Hebrew

Lillian Hellman

Its Origins Through the Rabbinic Period

An Audacious Life

William M. Schniedewind

Dorothy Gallagher

More than simply a method of communication shared by a common people, the Hebrew language was always an integral part of the Jewish cultural system and, as such, tightly interwoven into the lives of the prophets, poets, scribes and priests who used it. In this unique social history, William Schniedewind examines classical Hebrew from its origins in the second millennium BCE until the Rabbinic period, when the principles of Judaism as we know it today were formulated, to view the story of the Israelites through the lens of their language. Considering classical Hebrew from the standpoint of a writing system as opposed to vernacular speech, Schniedewind demonstrates how the Israelites’ long history of migration, war, exile and other momentous events, is reflected in Hebrew’s linguistic evolution. An excellent addition to the fields of biblical and Middle Eastern studies, this fascinating work brings linguistics and social history together for the first time to explore an ancient culture. William M. Schniedewind is Kershaw Chair of Ancient Eastern Mediterranean Studies, Professor of Biblical Studies and Northwest Semitic Languages, and chair of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA.

Glamorous, talented, audacious – Lillian Hellman knew everyone, did everything, had been everywhere. By the age of 29 she had written The Children’s Hour, the first of four hit Broadway plays, and soon she was considered a member of America’s first rank of dramatists. Apart from her work, Hellman lived a rich life filled with notable friendships, political activity and controversy, travel and love affairs, most importantly with Dashiell Hammett. But by the time she died, the truth about her life and accomplishments had been called into question. Scandals attached to her name to do with sex, money and with her own veracity. Dorothy Gallagher confronts the conundrum that was Lillian Hellman – a woman with a capacity to inspire outrage as often as admiration. Exploring Hellman’s leftist politics, her Jewish and Southern background and her famous testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, Gallagher also undertakes a new reading of Hellman’s carefully crafted memoirs and plays, in which she is both revealed and hidden. Dorothy Gallagher’s books include Hannah’s Daughters, All the Right Enemies and The Life and Murder of Carlo Trasca.

The Formation of the Jewish Canon

Bernard Berenson

Timothy H. Lim

A Life in the Picture Trade

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls provides unprecedented insight into the nature of the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament before its fixation. Timothy Lim here presents a complete account of the formation of the canon in Ancient Judaism from the emergence of the Torah in the Persian period to the final acceptance of the list of twenty-two/twenty-four books in the Rabbinic period.

Rachel Cohen

Using the Hebrew Bible, the Scrolls, the Apocrypha, the Letter of Aristeas, the writings of Philo, Josephus, the New Testament and Rabbinic literature as primary evidence he argues that throughout the post-exilic period up to around 100 CE there was not one official ‘canon’ accepted by all Jews; rather, there existed a plurality of collections of scriptures that were authoritative for different communities. Examining the literary sources and historical circumstances that led to the emergence of authoritative scriptures in ancient Judaism, Lim proposes a theory of the majority canon that posits that the Pharisaic canon became the canon of Rabbinic Judaism in the centuries after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple.

Few would have predicted that Bernard Berenson, from a poor Lithuanian Jewish immigrant family, would rise above poverty. Yet Berenson left his crowded home near Boston’s railyards and transformed himself into the world’s most renowned expert on Italian Renaissance paintings. The explosion of the Gilded Age art market, and Berenson’s work for dealer Joseph Duveen, supported a luxurious life, but came with painful costs: Berenson hid his origins, and, though his attributions remain foundational, he felt that he had betrayed his gifts as a critic and interpreter of paintings. This portrait of Berenson, the first biography devoted to him in a quarter century, draws on new archival materials that bring out the significance of his business dealings and the importance of several women in his life and work: his sister Senda Berenson, his wife Mary Berenson, his patroness Isabella Stewart Gardner, his lover Belle da Costa Greene, his dear friend Edith Wharton, and the companion of his last forty years, Nicky Mariano. Rachel Cohen is the author of A Chance Meeting: Intertwined Lives of American Writers and Artists.

Charity

The Great Rent Wars

The Place of the Poor in the Biblical Tradition

New York, 1917–1929

Gary A. Anderson It has long been acknowledged that Jews and Christians distinguished themselves through charity to the poor. Though ancient Greeks and Romans were also generous, they funded theatres and baths rather than poorhouses and orphanages. How might we explain this difference? In this significant reappraisal of charity in the biblical tradition, Gary Anderson argues that the poor constituted the privileged place where Jews and Christians met God. Though concerns for social justice were not unknown to early Jews and Christians, the poor achieved the importance they did primarily because they were thought to be ‘living altars’, a place to make a sacrifice, a loan to God that he, as the ultimate guarantor, could be trusted to repay in turn. Contrary to the assertions of Reformation and modern critiques, belief in a heavenly treasury was not just about self-interest. Sifting through biblical and postbiblical texts, Anderson shows how charity affirms the goodness of the created order; the world was created through charity and therefore rewards it. Gary A. Anderson is Hesburgh Professor of Catholic Theology, University of Notre Dame. His most recent book, the critically acclaimed Sin: A History, won a Christianity Today Book Award.

Robert M. Fogelson The Great Rent Wars tells the fascinating but little-known story of the battles between landlords and tenants in America’s largest city from 1917 through 1929. These conflicts were triggered by the postwar housing shortage, which prompted landlords to raise rents, drove tenants to go on rent strikes, and spurred the state legislature, a conservative body dominated by upstate Republicans, to impose rent control in New York, a radical and unprecedented step that transformed landlord-tenant relations. The Great Rent Wars traces the tumultuous history of rent control in New York from its inception to its expiration as it unfolded in New York, Albany and Washington, D.C. At the heart of this story are such memorable figures as Al Smith, Fiorello H. La Guardia and Oliver Wendell Holmes, as well as a host of tenants, landlords, judges and politicians who have long been forgotten. Fogelson also explores the heated debates over landlord-tenant law, housing policy and other issues that are as controversial today as they were a century ago. Robert M. Fogelson is professor of urban studies and history at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of several books, most recently Downtown: Its Rise and Fall, 1880–1930, and Bourgeois Nightmares: Suburbia, 1870–1930, both published by Yale.

Before the Door of God

Judges 1–12

An Anthology of Devotional Poetry

A New Translation

Edited by Jay Hopler and Kimberly Johnson

Introduction and Commentary by Jack M. Sasson

Before the Door of God traces the development of devotional Englishlanguage poetry from its origins in ancient hymnody to its current 21stcentury incarnations. The poems in this volume demonstrate not only that devotional poetry – poetry that speaks to the divine – remains in vigorous practice, but also that the tradition reaches back to the very origins of poetry in English. There is a sense in these pages that the tradition of lyric poetry that developed was nearly inevitable, given the inherent concerns of the genre. Featuring the work of poets over a three-thousand-year period, Before the Door of God places the devotional lyric in its cultural, historical and aesthetic contexts. Jay Hopler is associate professor of English at the University of South Florida. He received the prestigious Yale Series of Younger Poets Award in 2005 for his first book of poems, Green Squall. Kimberly Johnson is associate professor of English at Brigham Young University. She is the author of two collections of poetry and a translation of Virgil’s Georgics.

Informed by the literature and language of the ancient Near East, this new commentary to Chapters 1 to 12 of the biblical Book of Judges provides a literary and theological analysis of some of Scripture’s most stirring narratives and verses. Addressed are issues about the techniques that advance the text’s objectives, the impulses behind its composition, the motivations behind its preservation, the diversity of interpretations during its transmission in several ancient languages and the learned attention it has gathered over time in faith traditions, Jewish, Christian and Muslim. In its pages is a fair sampling from ancient Near Eastern documents to illumine specific biblical passages or to bolster the interpretation of contexts. A comprehensive Introduction surveys issues and approaches in the study of Judges. Introductory Remarks identify issues of religious, social, cultural or historical significance appropriate to each segment. As such, they provide a background to the Notes and a frame for the exposition in the concluding Comments. Jack M. Sasson is Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies and Hebrew Bible at Vanderbilt University. The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries

John Dewey • With an introduction by Thomas Alexander

Edited by Leo W. Simmons Forewords by Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert and Robert V. Hine

First published more than fifty years ago, The Courage to Be has become a classic of 20th-century religious and philosophical thought. Christian existentialist thinker Paul Tillich describes the dilemma of modern man and points a way to the conquest of the problem of anxiety. This edition includes a new foreword that situates the book within the theological conversation from which it first emerged and conveys its continued relevance in the current century.

First published in 1942, Sun Chief is the autobiography of Hopi Chief Don Talayesva and offers a unique insider view on Hopi society. In a new Foreword, Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert situates the book within contemporary Hopi studies, exploring how scholars have used the book since its publication more than seventy years ago. Don C. Talayesva (1890–1985) spent the first nine years of his life raised in the village of Old Oraibi, followed by nearly ten years of training at government schools before returning home. Leo W. Simmons was a Yale anthropologist who recorded Talayesva’s autobiography. Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert is assistant professor of American Indian studies and history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and enrolled with the Hopi tribe.

In A Common Faith, eminent American philosopher John Dewey calls for the ‘emancipation of the true religious quality’ from the heritage of dogmatism and supernaturalism that he believes characterises historical religions. He describes how the depth of religious experience and the creative role of faith in the resources of experience to generate meaning and value can be cultivated without making cognitive claims that compete with or contend with scientific ones. What Dewey advocates is ‘faith in the common’ as the ground of meaning. In a new introduction, Thomas Alexander contextualises the text for students and scholars.
