(P/B) THE BATTLE OF MARATHON
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0552

How did the city-state of Athens defeat the invaders from Persia, the first world empire, on the plain of Marathon in 490 BCE? Clever scholars skeptical of our earliest surviving source, Herodotus, have produced one ingenious theory after another. In this stimulating new book, bound to provoke controversy, Peter Krentz argues that Herodotus was right after all. Beginning his analysis with the Athenians' first formal contact with the Persians in 507 BCE, Krentz weaves together ancient evidence with travelers' descriptions, archaeological d...

(P/B) MEDIAEVAL GREECE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0708

The history of Greece between the collapse of the Roman Empire and the birth of the modern Greek state is for most people an historical blank. Specialist studies are not lacking, but unlike the other Mediterranean lands that have been the subject of many recent books, there has been no general history of mediaeval Greece published in English since 1908. This book is an attempt to fill the gap. The history of Greece in this period offers a long series of human dramas played out among clashes and contrasts between races, cultures, and religi...

In March 1942, French police arrested Charlotte Delbo and her husband, the resistance leader Georges Dudach, as they were preparing to distribute anti-German leaflets in Paris.

DADA'S WOMEN
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0473

The European Dada movement of the early 20th century has long been regarded as a male preserve, one in which women have been relegated to footnotes or mentioned only as the wives, girlfriends, or sisters of Dada men. This fascinating book challenges that assumption, focusing on the creative contributions made to Dada by five pivotal European women. Ruth Hemus establishes the ways in which Emmy Hennings and Sophie Taeuber in Zurich, Hannah Ho"ch in Berlin, and Suzanne Duchamp and Ce'line Arnauld in Paris made important interventions across ...

(P/B) ARTS AND THE CREATION OF MIND
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0369

Although the arts are often thought to be closer to the rim of education than to its core, they are, surprisingly, critically important means for developing complex and subtle aspects of the mind, argues Elliot Eisner in this engrossing book. In it he describes how various forms of thinking are evoked, developed, and refined through the arts. These forms of thinking, Eisner argues, are more helpful in dealing with the ambiguities and uncertainties of daily life than are the formally structured curricula that are employed today in schools. ...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE POEMS OF JOHN WILMOT, EARL OF ROCHESTER
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0313

John Wilmot, the notorious Earl of Rochester, was the darling of the polished, profligate court of Charles II. One of the finest poets of the Restoration, patron to important playwrights, model for countless witty young rakes in Restoration comedies, he lived a full but short life, dying in 1680 (with a dramatic deathbed renunciation of his atheism) at the age of 33. This edition of Rochester's poetry is annotated and introduced by David M. Vieth. Rochester had many admirers: Graham Greene wrote "Lord Rochester's Monkey"; Daniel Defoe quot...

But here Judith McKenzie shows that it is indeed possible to reconstruct the city and many of its buildings by means of meticulous exploration of archaeological remains, written so...

(H/B) WHY PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS AS ART AS NEVER BEFORE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0464

From the late 1970s onward, serious art photography began to be made at large scale and for the wall. Michael Fried argues that this immediately compelled photographers to grapple with issues centering on the relationship between the photograph and the viewer standing before it that until then had been the province only of painting. Fried further demonstrates that certain philosophically deep problems - associated with notions of theatricality, literalness, and objecthood, and touching on the role of original intention in artistic producti...
