(P/B) ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND THE MYSTERY OF THE ELEPHANT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0067

To all those who witnessed his extraordinary conquests, from Albania to India, Alexander the Great appeared invincible. How Alexander himself promoted this appearance-how he abetted the belief that he enjoyed divine favor and commanded even the forces of nature against his enemies-is the subject of Frank L. Holt's absorbing book. Solid evidence for the "supernaturalized" Alexander lies in a rare series of medallions that depict the triumphant young king at war against the elephants, archers, and chariots of Rajah Porus of India at the Batt...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0131

This authoritative and sweeping compendium, the second volume in Getzel Cohen's organized survey of the Greek settlements founded or refounded in the Hellenistic period, provides historical narratives, detailed references, citations, and commentaries on all the settlements in Syria, The Red Sea Basin, and North Africa from 331 to 31 BCE. Organized geographically, the volume pulls together discoveries and debates from dozens of widely scattered archaeological and epigraphic projects. Cohen's magisterial breadth of focus enables him to provi...

(P/B) THE GENTRIFICATION OF THE MIND
WITNESS TO A LOST IMAGINATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0328

In this gripping memoir of the AIDS years (1981-1996), Sarah Schulman recalls how much of the rebellious queer culture, cheap rents, and a vibrant downtown arts movement vanished almost overnight to be replaced by gay conservative spokespeople and mainstream consumerism. Schulman takes us back to her Lower East Side and brings it to life, filling these pages with vivid memories of her avant-garde queer friends and dramatically recreating the early years of the AIDS crisis as experienced by a political insider. Interweaving personal reminis...

(P/B) ART WORLDS
25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0288

This classic sociological examination of art as collective action explores the cooperative network of suppliers, performers, dealers, critics, and consumers who - along with the artist - "produce" a work of art. Howard S. Becker looks at the conventions essential to this operation and, prospectively, at the extent to which art is shaped by this collective activity. The book is thoroughly illustrated and updated with a new dialogue between Becker and eminent French sociologist Alain Pessin about the extended social system in which art is cr...

(P/B) FIGURES TRACED IN LIGHT
ON CINEMATIC STAGING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0329

A film tells its story not only through dialogue and actors' performances but also through the director's control of movement and shot design. Figures Traced in Light is a detailed consideration of how cinematic staging carries the story, expresses emotion, and beguiles the audience through pictorial composition. Ranging over the entire history of cinema, David Bordwell focuses on four filmmakers' unique contributions to the technique. In-depth chapters examine Louis Feuillade, master of the 1910s serial; Kenji Mizoguchi, the great Japanes...

(P/B) ALEXANDER TO ACTIUM
THE HISTORICAL EVOLUTION OF THE HELLENISTIC AGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0119

The Hellenistic Age, the three extraordinary centuries from the death of Alexander in 323 B. C. to Octavian's final defeat of Antony and Cleopatra at the Battle of Actium, has offered a rich and variegated field of exploration for historians, philosophers, economists, and literary critics. Yet few scholars have attempted the daunting task of seeing the period whole, of refracting its achievements and reception through the lens of a single critical mind. Alexander to Actium was conceived and written to fill that gap. In this monumental work...

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS OF CHARLES OLSON
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0326

A seminal figure in post-World War II literature, Charles Olson has helped define the postmodern sensibility. His poetry embraces themes of empowering love, political responsibility, the wisdom of dreams, the intellect as a unit of energy, the restoration of the archaic, and the transformation of consciousness-all carried in a voice both intimate and grand, American and timeless, impassioned and coolly demanding. In this selection of some 70 poems, Robert Creeley has sought to present a personal reading of Charles Olson's decisive and inim...

(P/B) HOMO NECANS
THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF ANCIENT GREEK SACRIFICIAL RITUAL AND MYTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0117

Blood sacrifice, the ritual slaughter of animals, has been basic to religion through history, so that it survives in spiritualized form even in Christianity. How did this violent phenomenon achieve the status of the sacred? This question is examined in Walter Burkert's famous study. (From the publisher) Το Homo necans προτείνει να ερμηνεύσουμε τους πανάρχαιους τελετουργικούς φόνους, τις αιματηρές θυσίες, τον σφαγιασμό ζώων σε εορταστικές περιστάσεις ως σκηνοθετημένες εκδηλώσεις ελεγχόμενης επιθετικότητας. Γι' αυτό άλλωστε οι τελετουργίες ...

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS
BILINGUAL EDITION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0008

These poems, selected from Das Buch der Bilder and the two parts of Neue Gedichte, show Rilke's deep concern with sculpture and painting. Written in his less mystical period (1900-1908), the poems exhibit Rilke's particular artistic and poetic power. Rainer Maria Rilke was one of Germany's most important poets. His influences include the paintings of the Worpswedders and the French Impressionists, the sculpture of Rodin (to whom he was both friend and secretary), and the poetry of Baudelaire, Verlaine, Mallarme', and other symbolists. His ...

(P/B) CIVILIZATION AND CAPITALISM, 15th-18th CENTURY (VOLUME 3)
THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE WORLD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0325

Volume III investigates what Braudel terms "world-economies"-the economic dominance of a particular city at different periods of history, from Venice to Amsterdam, London, New York. ((From the publisher)...

(P/B) INALIENABLE POSSESSIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0184

Inalienable Possessions tests anthropology's traditional assumptions about kinship, economics, power, and gender in an exciting challenge to accepted theories of reciprocity and marriage exchange. Focusing on Oceania societies from Polynesia to Papua New Guinea and including Australian Aborigine groups, Annette Weiner investigates the category of possessions that must not be given or, if they are circulated, must return finally to the giver. Reciprocity, she says, is only the superficial aspect of exchange, which overlays much more politic...

(P/B) INSIDE THE WHITE CUBE
THE IDEOLOGY OF THE GALLERY SPACE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0162

When these essays first appeared in Artforum in 1976, their impact was immediate. They were discussed, annotated, cited, collected, and translated - the three issues of Artforum in which they appeared have become nearly impossible to obtain. Having Brian O'Doherty's provocative essays available again is a signal event for the art world. This edition also includes "The Gallery as Gesture," a critically important piece published ten years after the others. O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as h...

(P/B) THE WESTERN WAY OF WAR
INFANTRY BATTLE IN CLASSICAL GREECE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0153

The Greeks of the classical age invented not only the central idea of Western politics - that the power of state should be guided by a majority of its citizens - but also the central act of Western warfare, the decisive infantry battle. Instead of ambush, skirmish, or combat between individual heroes, the Greeks of the fifth century B.C. devised a ferocious, brief, and destructive head-on clash between armed men of all ages. In this bold, original study, Victor Davis Hanson shows how this brutal enterprise was dedicated to the same outcome...

(P/B) THE MODERN WORLD-SYSTEM IV
CENTRIST LIBERALISM TRIUMPHANT, 1789-1914
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0256

Immanuel Wallerstein's highly influential, multi-volume opus, The Modern World-System, is one of this century's greatest works of social science. An innovative, panoramic reinterpretation of global history, it traces the emergence and development of the modern world from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. This new volume encompasses the nineteenth century from the revolutionary era of 1789 to the First World War. In this crucial period, three great ideologies-conservatism, liberalism, and radicalism-emerged in response to the worldwid...

(P/B) ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND THE LOGISTICS OF THE MACEDONIAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0118

The most important work on Alexander the Great to appear in a long time. Neither scholarship nor semi-fictional biography will ever be the same again... Engels at last uses all the archaeological work done in Asia in the past generation and makes it accessible... Careful analyses of terrain, climate, and supply requirements are throughout combined in a masterly fashion to help account for Alexander's strategic decision in the light of the options open to him... The chief merit of this splendid book is perhaps the way in which it brings an ...

(P/B) AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO
A BIOGRAPHY (FORTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0305

This classic biography was first published forty-five years ago and has since established itself as the standard account of Saint Augustine's life and teaching. The remarkable discovery of a considerable number of letters and sermons by Augustine cast fresh light on the first and last decades of his experience as a bishop. These circumstantial texts have led Peter Brown to reconsider some of his judgments on Augustine, both as the author of the Confessions and as the elderly bishop preaching and writing in the last years of Roman rule in n...

(P/B) FOOD POLITICS
HOW THE FOOD INDUSTRY INFLUENCES NUTRITION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0208

We all witness, in advertising and on supermarket shelves, the fierce competition for our food dollars. In this engrossing expos?, Marion Nestle goes behind the scenes to reveal how the competition really works and how it affects our health. The abundance of food in the United States--enough calories to meet the needs of every man, woman, and child twice over--has a downside. Our over-efficient food industry must do everything possible to persuade people to eat more--more food, more often, and in larger portions--no matter what it does to ...

(P/B) THE GRECO-PERSIAN WARS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0030

This is a reissue, with a new introduction and an update to the bibliography, of the original edition, published in 1970 as The Year of Salamis in England and as Xerxes at Salamis in the U.S. The long and bitter struggle between the great Persian Empire and the fledgling Greek states reached its high point with the extraordinary Greek victory at Salamis in 480 B.C. The astonishing sea battle banished forever the specter of Persian invasion and occupation. Peter Green brilliantly retells this historic moment, evoking the whole dramatic swee...

(P/B) SELECTED WRITINGS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0047

A revolutionary figure in the literary avant garde of his time, Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) is now seen to be central to the development of post-modernism. His writings comprise verse, prose poems, film scenarios, a historical novel, plays, essays on film, theater, art, and literature, and many letters. Susan Sontag's selection conveys the genius of this singular writer. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE FATE OF PLACE
A PHILOSOPHICAL HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0205

In this imaginative and comprehensive study, Edward Casey, one of the most incisive interpreters of the Continental philosophical tradition, offers a philosophical history of the evolving conceptualizations of place and space in Western thought. Not merely a presentation of the ideas of other philosophers, The Fate of Place is acutely sensitive to silences, absences, and missed opportunities in the complex history of philosophical approaches to space and place. A central theme is the increasing neglect of place in favor of space from the s...
