(P/B) DESTROYING A NATION
THE CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0264

Following the Arab Spring, Syria descended into civil and sectarian conflict. It has since become a fractured warzone which operates as a breeding ground for new terrorist movements including ISIS as well as the root cause of the greatest refugee crisis in modern history. In this important book, former Special Envoy of the Netherlands to Syria, Nikolaos van Dam, explains the recent history of Syria, covering the growing disenchantment with the Asad regime, the chaos of civil war and the fractures which led to an immense amount of destructi...

(P/B) REVOLT IN THE DESERT
THE ABRIDGES EDITION OF "SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM"
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0177

The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918, when the disparate tribes of Arabia rose up as one great force to defeat an empire, was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the Middle East and a pivotal element of the Middle Eastern arena of World War I. It sounded the death knell for the Ottoman Empire and paved the way for a new colonial power in the region - the British. It was T.E. Lawrence, a young army officer with a brilliant military mind and unmatched knowledge of the region and the Arab people, who - alongside the charismatic Faisal...

(P/B) GREECE, THE HIDDEN CENTURIES
TURKISH RULE FROM THE FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE TO GREEK INDEPENDENCE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0195

For almost four hundred years, between the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Greek War of Independence, the history of Greece is shrouded in mystery: distorted by Greek writers and largely neglected by others. What was life really like for the Greeks under Ottoman rule? Was it a period of exploitation and enslavement for the Greeks until they were finally able to rise up against Turkish rule, as is the traditional, Greek nationalistic view? Or did the Greeks derive some benefit from Turkish rule? How did the Greeks and Turks co-exist ...

(P/B) CINEMA ITALIANO
THE COMPLETE GUIDE FROM CLASSICS TO CULT
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0167

Italian filmmakers have created some of the most magical and moving, violent and controversial films in world cinema. During its twentieth-century heyday, Italy's film industry was second only to Hollywood as a popular film factory, exporting cinematic dreams with multinational casts to the world, ranging across multiple genres. 'Cinema Italiano' is the first book to discuss comprehensively and in depth this Italian cinema, both popular and arthouse. It is illustrated throughout with rare stills and international posters from this revered ...

(P/B) STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
FROM ATGET TO CARTIER-BRESSON
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0071

Street photography is perhaps the best-loved and most widely known of all photographic genres, with names like Cartier-Bresson, Brassai and Doisneau familiar even to those with a fleeting knowledge of the medium. Yet, what exactly is street photography? From what viewpoint does it present its subjects, and how does this viewpoint differ from that of documentary photography? Looking closely at the work of Atget, Kertesz, Bovis, Rene-Jacques, Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier- Bresson and more, this elegantly written book, extensively illustrated w...

(P/B) A SHORT HISTORY OF THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0215

The Byzantine Empire was one of the most impressive imperial adventures in history. It ruled much of Europe and Anatolia for a remarkable eleven hundred years. From Constantine I's establishment of Byzantium (renamed Constantinople) as his capital in 324 CE, until the fall of the city to the Ottomans in 1453, the Byzantine domain became a powerhouse of literature, art, theology, law and learning. Dionysios Stathakopoulos here tells a compelling story of military conquest, alliance and reversal, including the terrifying secret of Greek fir...

(H/B) GREECE, THE DECADE OF WAR
OCCUPATION, RESISTANCE AND CIVIL WAR
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0247

During the 1940s Greece was torn apart twice, first by World War II and second by Civil War.Beginning in 1941, the occupation of Greece by Germany was intensely brutal. Children starved on the streets of Athens. The Jewish population was decimated in the Holocaust. Heroic acts of resistance - performed in concert with the SOE - were met with vicious reprisals. When Greece was finally freed from Nazi rule in 1944, the fractured and embittered nation became engulfed in civil war, as conflict flared between the British and American-sponsored ...

(P/B) ART AND PSYCHOANALYSIS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0284

Often derided as unscientific and self-indulgent, psychoanalysis has been an invaluable resource for artists, art critics and historians throughout the twentieth century. Art and Psychoanalysis investigates these encounters. The shared relationship to the unconscious, severed from Romantic inspiration by Freud, is traced from the Surrealist engagement with psychoanalytic imagery to the contemporary critic's use of psychoanalytic concepts as tools to understand how meaning operates. Following the theme of the 'object' with its varying mater...

(P/B) TURKEY
A MODERN HISTORY
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0082

This revised edition builds upon and updates its twin themes of Turkey's continuing incorporation into the capitalist world and the modernization of state and society. It begins with the forging of closer links with Europe after the French Revolution, and the changing face of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. Zurcher argues that Turkey's history between 1908 and 1950 should be seen as a unity, and offers a strongly revisionist interpretation of Turkey's founding father, Kemal Ataturk. In his account of the period since 1950, Zurcher ...

(H/B) A MODERN HISTORY OF THE BALKANS
NATIONALISM AND IDENTITY IN SOUTHEAST EUROPE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0276

The history of the Balkans has been a distillation of the great and terrible themes of 20th century history-the rise of nationalism, communism, fascism, genocide, identity and war. Written by one of the leading historians of the region, this is a new interpretation of that history, focusing on the uses and legacies of nationalism in the Balkan region. In particular, Professor Veremis analyses the influence of the West-from the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the rise and collapse of Yugoslavia. Throughout the state-building process of Greec...

(P/B) PINDAR
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0251

The 6th/5th century bce Greek melic (or songwriting) poet Pindar was the most celebrated lyricist of antiquity. His famous victory odes offer a paean to the heroic athlete, and are an attempt to encapsulate, through choral songs of acclamation, the glory of the sportsman's moment of triumph at a variety of Panhellenic festivals including the Olympic Games. His other poems, collected in thirteen books, are largely lost or fragmentary - except for the Paeans - but were devoted to the praise of gods and heroes. Yet Pindar, though still respec...

(P/B) THE ASSASSIN LEGENDS - MYTHS OF THE ISMA'ILIS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0081

For hundreds of years Westerners have been fascinated by stories of the Assassins, their mysterious leader and their remote mountain stronghold at Alamut in Northern Iran. The legends first emerged in the 12th and 13th centuries, when Crusaders in Syria came into contact with the Nazari Isma'ilis, one of the communities of Shi'ite Islam who, at the behest of their leader Hassan Sabaa (mythologized as the "Old Man of the Mountain"), engaged in dangerous missions to kill their enemies. Elaborated over the years, the tales culminated in Marco...

(H/B) FRAGMENTS OF A LOST HOMELAND
REMEMBERING ARMENIA
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0271

The Armenian world was shattered by the 1915 genocide. Not only were thousands of lives lost but families were displaced and the narrative threads that connected them to their own past and homelands were forever severed. Many have been left with only fragments of their family histories: a story of survival passed on by a grandparent who made it through the cataclysm or, if lucky, an old photograph of a distant, silent, ancestor. By contrast the Dildilian family chose to speak. Two generations gave voice to their experience in lengthy writt...

(P/B) THE METAXAS MYTH
DICTATORSHIP AND PROPAGANDA IN GREECE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0170

Why did the propaganda efforts that succeeded so thoroughly in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany fail so drastically in Greece? The Metaxas Myth is the first detailed account of General Ioannis Metaxas's attempts to mimic the fascist models of Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco by portraying himself as the 'saviour' of the Greek nation in an effort to build his power base as dictator. Following the dissolution of parliament in 1936 up to his death in 1941, Metaxas used every media outlet available to promote his great myth: newspapers, periodicals...

(H/B) CRISIS AND REBELLION IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
THE DOWNFALL OF A SULTAN IN THE AGE OF REVOLUTION
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0267

In 1807 the reformist Sultan Selim III was overthrown in a palace coup enacted by the elite special forces of the day-the Janissaries. The Ottomans were bankrupt and had been forced to make peace with Napoleon after Austerlitz, but it was Selim III's efforts to reform an empire that had suffered successive military defeats, and to reform along the lines of modern principles-with an end to the privileged 'feudal' position of many in elite Ottoman civil-military society-which sealed his fate. This book seeks to situate Turkey's reactionary r...

(H/B) ARMING THE SULTAN
GERMAN ARMS TRADE AND PERSONAL DIPLOMACY IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE BEFORE WORLD WAR I
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0282

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Ottoman arms industry was self-sufficient. But from the 1880s to World War I, German arms companies held a monopoly position in the Ottoman arms market. How did Germany manage to conquer what had until then been an extremely competitive market, where British, French and American firms had been dominant for years? While acknowledging the importance of economic and political factors, Arming the Sultan suggests that the main determinants of the German success cannot be ascribed only to the marke...

(H/B) CENTRAL ASIA IN ART
FROM SOVIET ORIENTALISM TO THE NEW REPUBLICS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0283

In the midst of the space race and nuclear age, Soviet Realist artists were producing figurative oil paintings. Why? How was art produced to control and co-opt the peripheries of the Soviet Union, particularly Central Asia? Presenting the 'untold story' of Soviet Orientalism, Aliya Abykayeva-Tiesenhausen re-evaluates the imperial project of the Soviet state, placing the Orientalist undercurrent found within art and propaganda production in the USSR alongside the creation of new art forms in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. From the t...

RESHAPING THE BALKANS
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0010

Kosovoa's declaration of independence in 2008 and the overt manipulation of this precedent by Russia in its war with Georgia and South Ossetia shortly afterwards has focused the worlda's attention once again on the Balkans. But Albaniaa's role within the region remains little known and less understood. In this revised edition of a major work of contemporary history, two well-known and internationally-respected authorities elucidate Albania's place in the Balkans, from the explosion of violence in the 1990s, which brought the country to the...

(Η/Β) CLASSIC FRENCH NOIR
GENDER AND THE CINEMA OF FATAL DESIRE
Εκδότης: I.B. TAURIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3743-0278

French film noir has long been seen as a phenomenon distinct from its Hollywood counterpart. This book - an innovative departure from conventional noir scholarship - now adopts a biocultural approach to exploring the French genre through the years 1941-1959. Chapters reveal noir as a product of the social and cultural factors at play in occupied, liberated and post-war France: marked by malaise at military defeat, Nazi collaboration and the impact of industrialisation. Furthermore, the book uncovers the evolutionary mechanisms of sexuality...
