Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0717

This clear, accessible, and even humorous book is ideal for young readers new to economic concepts, and for readers of all ages who want to better understand economic history and ideas. Economic historian Niall Kishtainy organizes short chapters that center on big ideas and ev...

(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...

(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...

(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. ...

(H/B) A LITTLE HISTORY OF ART
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0732

Charlotte Mullins brings art to life through the stories of those who created it and, importantly, reframes who is included in the narrative to create a more diverse and exciting landscape of art. She shows how art can help us see the world differently and understand our place in it, how it helps us express ourselves, fuels our creativity and contributes to our overall wellbeing and positive mental health. Why did our ancestors make art? What did art mean to them and what does their art mean for us today? Why is art even important at all? ...

(H/B) CRITICAL REVOLUNOTIONARIES
FIVE CRITICS WHO CHANGED THE WAY WE READ
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0730

Before the First World War, traditional literary scholarship was isolated from society at large. In the years following, a younger generation of critics came to the fore. Their work represented a reaction to the impoverishment of language in a commercial, utilitarian society increasingly under the sway of film, advertising, and the popular press. For them, literary criticism was a way of diagnosing social ills and had a vital moral function to perform. Terry Eagleton reflects on the lives and work of T. S. Eliot, I. A. Richards, William Em...
