MODERN ARCHITECTURES IN HISTORY
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0073

This book is an unprecedented account of modern architecture in Greece, providing a unique understanding of the development of architectural practice and theory in the context of the country's political and social history. Alexander Tzonis and Alcestis Rodi present the ambitious Neoclassicist projects thought appropriate for a new nation that followed from the establishment of the Greek state in the 1830s before explaining the rise and stylistic development of civic, school and university buildings in the later nineteenth century and after...

(P/B) THE GREEKS
LOST CIVILIZATIONS
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0086

This book is a portrait of Ancient Greece-but not as we know it. Few people today appreciate that Greek civilization was spread across the Middle East, or that there were Greek cities in the foothills of the Himalayas. Philip Matyszak tells the lost stories of the Greeks outside Greece, compatriots of luminaries like Sappho, the poet from Lesbos; Archimedes, a native of Syracuse; and Herodotus, who was born in Asia Minor as a subject of the Persian Empire. Stretching from the earliest prehistoric Greek colonies around the Black Sea to Gree...

(H/B) A HISTORY OF FEELINGS
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0085

What does it mean to feel something? What stimulates our desires, aspirations and dreams? Did our ancestors feel in the same way to us? Historians have tried to make sense of our feelings, passions, moods, emotions and sentiments over the last decade in a wave of new research. For the first time, however, Rob Boddice brings together the latest findings to trace the complex history of feelings from antiquity to the present. A History of Feelings is a compelling account of the unsaid - the gestural, affective and experiential. Rob Boddice ar...

(P/B) LEOPARD
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0074

The leopard is the ultimate cat. It makes the lion and the tiger appear overblown and all other members of the cat family look puny. Whereas lions hunt in the open and then share their kill, the leopard is solitary, stealthy and selfish. This cat ambushes its prey and then carries it high into a tree, where it can dine alone. The leopard has commanded respect and awe in mankind for centuries. Considered the 'perfect predator', capable of frustrating the most dedicated big game hunter, leopards are vicious, agile and deadly animals who will...

(P/B) AGE OF SINAN
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0084

Mimar Koca Sinan (c. 1489-1588), the the Great Architect Sinan, was appointed chief royal architect to the Ottoman court by Sultan Suleyman I in 1539. During his fifty-year career he designed and constructed hundreds of buildings including mosques, palaces, harems, chapels, tombs, schools, almshouses, madrassahs, caravanserais, granaries, fountains, aqueducts and hospitals. His distinctive architectural idiom also left its imprint over the terrains of a vast empire extending from the Danube to the Tigris, and he became the most celebrated ...

(H/B) BOUNTIFUL EMPIRE
A HISTORY OF OTTOMAN CUISINE
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0083

The Ottoman Empire was one of the largest and longest-lasting empires in history. In this powerful and complex empire, the production and consumption of food reflected the lives of people from sultans to soldiers. Food bound people of different classes and backgrounds together, defining identity and serving symbolic functions in the social, religious, political and military spheres. Bountiful Empire: A History of Ottoman Cuisine examines the food of the Ottoman Empire as it changed and evolved over more than five centuries. Starting with a...

(P/B) WALTER BENJAMIN
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0082

Walter Benjamin, critic, essayist, translator, philosopher - one of the twentieth century's most influential intellectuals - continues to intrigue today. His work stimulates a profusion of responses in the form of new novels, operas, films and artworks, as well as a never-abating production of academic texts. In this new biography, the first to be written in over a decade, author Esther Leslie uses the recently published entirety of Benjamin's correspondence, drawing on his numerous diaries and autobiographical works, in order to provide a...

(H/B) ANOTHER DARKNESS, ANOTHER DAWN
A HISTORY OF GYPSIES, ROMA AND TRAVELLERS
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0081

Gypsies, Roma and Travellers are some of the most marginalized and vilified people in society. They are rarely seen as having a place in a country, either geographically or socially, no matter where they live or what they do. Another Darkness, Another Dawn is a new history that charts their movement through time and place: from their roots in the Indian subcontinent, across the Byzantine and Ottoman empires to western Europe and the Americas, to their place in the contemporary world. This history of Romani people demonstrates how their exp...

(P/B) TOWARDS A PHILOSOPHY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0047

With an introduction by Hubertus von Amelunxen Media philosopher Vilem Flusser proposed a revolutionary new way of thinking about photography. An analysis of the medium in terms of aesthetics, science and politics provided him with new ways of understanding both the cultural crises of the past and the new social forms nascent within them. Flusser showed how the transformation of textual into visual culture (from the linearity of history into the two-dimensionality of magic) and of industrial into post-industrial society (from work into lei...

(H/B) THE PERSIANS
LOST CIVILIZATIONS
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0080

During the first and second millennia BC large numbers of nomadic people known as the Aryans migrated outwards into the Eurasian periphery from Central Asia. One particular branch of these Aryans moved south of the Caspian Sea and became known to history as the Persians or Iranians. Their first dwellings were in an unpromisingly arid area, but from there these early settlers would go on to form one of the most powerful empires in history. The Persians tells the captivating story of this beguiling ancient civilization. Drawing on the regio...

(P/B) A SHORT HISTORY OF THE SHADOW
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0078

In this investigative tour de force, Victor I. Stoichita untangles the history of one of the most enduring technical and symbolic challenges to beset Western artists - the depiction and meanings of shadows. The representation of shadow, and especially of cast shadow, is as old as art itself, for according to classical writers art was born when the outline of a human shadow thrown onto a wall was first traced out in order to capture it in the form of a silhouette. But the history of the shadow is properly the history of light versus dark, f...

MAPPING THE COSMOS
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0077

The numbers involved when it comes to discussing stars, galaxies and the inconceivably vast tracts of empty space between them are staggering. With hundreds of billions of galaxies in the observable universe, all of varying shapes, sizes and ages - each containing hundreds of billions of suns - at first glance our universe appears frustratingly unknowable, and yet it is captivating to explore. As a species we have only recently come to appreciate that our Milky Way is just one of myriad galaxies spread throughout the universe, with modern...

(P/B) GUY DEBORD
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0045

Guy Debord (1931-94) was one of the most important and intriguing intellectual figures of the twentieth century. Filmmaker and poet, urban critic and political theorist, adventurer and activist extraordinaire during Paris's May 1968 uprisings, Debord was simultaneously behind and ahead of his times. Best-known as guru of the avant-garde revolutionary movement the Situationist International (1957-72), and for a classic indictment of post-war capitalist consumerism The Society of the Spectacle (1967), Debord's life and work remains fascinati...

(P/B) ANDREI TARKOVSKY
ELEMENTS OF CINEMA
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0058

The films of Andrei Tarkovsky have been revered as ranking on a par with the masterpieces of Russia's novelists and composers. His work, from films such as Ivan's Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror, Nostalgia and Sacrifice, has had an enormous influence on the style of contemporary European film, with its open narrative structures and slow, pensive mood; yet Tarkovsky has remained an elusive subject for reflection and analysis. This book is a comprehensive, well-illustrated and much-needed account of Tarkovsky's entire film output. ...

(P/B) THE EMPIRE OF THE GREAT MUGHALS
HISTORY, ART AND CULTURE
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0071

The Mughal empire (1526-1857) has long been viewed as a wonderland of unimaginable treasure; it was in fact the mightiest Islamic empire in the history of India. In this comprehensive cultural history, now available in paperback, Annemarie Schimmel describes the political, military and economic rise of the Mughals, their system of rule, the incredible unfolding of their power and splendour, and their gradual collapse, finally supplanted by the British colonial empire in 1857. Beginning with a concise historical overview, she paints a detai...

(P/B) PHOTOGRAPHY AND ANTHROPOLOGY
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0076

Photography and anthropology share strikingly parallel histories. Christopher Pinney's provocative and eminently readable account provides a polemical narrative of anthropologists' use of photography from the 1840s to the present. Walter Benjamin suggested that photography 'make[s] the difference between technology and magic visible as a thoroughly historical variable,' and Pinney here explores photography as a divinatory practice. Though viewed as modern and rational, this quality of photography in fact propelled anthropologists towards t...

(P/B) LION
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0075

Majestic, noble, brave - lions, with their tawny coats and luminous eyes, have inspired countless stories, traditions and beliefs. Whether we are seduced by their beauty or drawn to danger, we want to be near them. No other animal has had such an enduring symbolic resonance; lions have been painted on wood and canvas, chiselled in stone, cast in metal and featured on the pages of medieval manuscripts. In this lavishly illustrated book, Deirdre Jackson draws on the latest scientific research, folklore, travel literature, lion tamers' memoir...

Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0072

With an introduction by Edmund White This new short biography and critical work cuts directly to the essence of Genet's life, a life of extraordinary spectacle that was always profoundly entangled with his work. Stephen Barber emphasises those elements that made his life particularly inspirational in the 1960s and which continue to make it vital for readers today. Genet's work is a distillation of preoccupations and reinventions of crucial matters - sex, desire, death and revolution - all of which became mediated in the form of his own tra...

(P/B) WHAT MAKES A GREAT EXHIBITION?
Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0060

Rising attendance at museums, along with increased press coverage in the age of the international biennial and the 'blockbuster' exhibition, has translated into a growing interest in how exhibitions are made. The new curatorial studies programmes springing up across Europe and North America often deal with theoretical issues, yet one of the central questions of curating frequently remains unframed: makes an exhibition great? In this book, fourteen essays by active curators and historians address the issue head-on. Focusing on the curation...

Εκδότης: REAKTION BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3675-0053

Traditionally, museums have concerned themselves with foremost with conservation and classification. But what is conserved, and why? How is it classified? And who does this benefit? Are exhibitions really designed with the visitor in mind? And what qualities of experience are being offered? These are just some of the pressing questions which the authors - museum professionals, historians and critics - raise in this volume. Art collections, museums of childhood, science and photography, theme parks and 'time machines', and the Great Exhibi...
