Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0719

A magnificently illustrated showcase of works by artists in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century In Paris at the turn of the 20th century, an artistic revolution was underway.

They chose as their slogan "neither jury nor reward" (ni jury ni recompenses), and for the following three decades their annual exhi...

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) 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...

EVERYDAY FORMS OF PEASANT RESISTANCE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0396

This sensitive picture of the constant and circumspect struggle waged by peasants materially and ideologically against their oppressors shows that techniques of evasion and resistance may represent the most significant and effective means of class struggle in the long run. (From the publisher) "A major contribution to peasant studies, Malaysian studies, and the literature on revolutions and class consciousness."--Benedict R. Anderson, Cornell University "The book is a splendid achievement. Because Scott listens closely to the villagers o...

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0709

The extraordinary story of the intermingled civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, spanning more than six millennia from the late Bronze Age to the seventh century. The magnificent civilization created by the ancient Greeks and Romans is the greatest legacy of the classical world. However, narratives about the "civilized" Greek and Roman empires resisting the barbarians at the gate are far from accurate. Tony Spawforth, an esteemed scholar, author, and media contributor, follows the thread of civilization through more than six millennia...

(P/B) DEATH
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0611

There is one thing we can be sure of: we are all going to die. But once we accept that fact, the questions begin. In this thought-provoking book, philosophy professor Shelly Kagan examines the myriad questions that arise when we confront the meaning of mortality. Do we have reason to believe in the existence of immortal souls? Or should we accept an account according to which people are just material objects, nothing more? Can we make sense of the idea of surviving the death of one's body? If I won't exist after I die, can death truly be b...

(P/B) VEILED PRESENCE
BODY AND DRAPERY FROM GIOTTO TO TITIAN
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0718

This wide-ranging book elucidates the symbolism of veils and highlights the power of drapery in Italian art from Giotto to Titian. In the cities of the Renaissance, display of luxury dress was a marker of status. Florentines decked out their palaces and streets with textiles for public rituals. But cloths are also the stuff of fantasy: throughout the book, the author moves from the material to the metaphorical. Curtains and veils, swaddling and shrouds, evoke associations with birth and death. The central chapters address the sculpture of ...

(P/B) THE OTHER GOD
DUALIST RELIGIONS FROM ANTIQUITY TO THE CATHAR HERESY
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0706

This fascinating book explores the evolution of religious dualism, the doctrine that man and cosmos are constant battlegrounds between forces of good and evil. It traces this evolution from late Egyptian religion and the revelations of Zoroaster and the Orphics in antiquity through the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Mithraic Mysteries, and the great Gnostic teachers to its revival in medieval Europe with the suppression of the Bogomils and the Cathars, heirs to the age-long teachings of dualism. Integrating political, cultural, and religious histor...

(H/B) BECOMING FREUD
THE MAKING OF A PSYCHOANALYST
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0648

Becoming Freud is the story of the young Freud-Freud up until the age of fifty-that incorporates all of Freud's many misgivings about the art of biography. Freud invented a psychological treatment that involved the telling and revising of life stories, but he was himself skeptical of the writing of such stories. In this biography, Adam Phillips, whom the New Yorker calls "Britain's foremost psychoanalytical writer," emphasizes the largely and inevitably undocumented story of Freud's earliest years as the oldest-and favored-son of Jewish im...

(H/B) VENICE AND VITRUVIUS
READING VENICE WITH DANIELE BARBARO AND ANDREA PALLADIO
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0607

In about 35-25 B.C.E., the Roman architect Vitruvius produced his encyclopaedic ten-book summary of the principles of Hellenistic architecture, "De architectura" ("On Architecture"). These ideas have stimulated architects ever since. In the mid-16th century, the architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) and the humanist Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570) looked to the city of Venice in order to understand and interpret Vitruvius' text, which was still in need of clarification and which would enable them to solve contemporary architectural problems.

(P/B) DUBUFFET AS ARCHITECT
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0567

As the champion of "Art Brut," the artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) is remembered foremost as a painter. Yet his creative instinct extended far beyond the parameters of paint. Later in his life, in 1965, his interest in architecture was sparked by a commission for two large-scale paintings for the University of Nanterre in Paris. Although he ultimately abandoned that project, he became intrigued by the idea of producing large works in a more enduring format, capable of withstanding the elements. He experimented with different media in sear...
