A PREHISTORY OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0734

The untold story about how the internet became social, and why this matters for its future. Fifteen years before the commercialization of the internet, millions of amateurs across North America created more than 100,000 small-scale computer networks. The people who built and maintained these dial-up bulletin board systems (BBSs) in the 1980s laid the groundwork for millions of others who would bring their lives online in the 1990s and beyond. From ham radio operators to HIV/AIDS activists, these modem enthusiasts developed novel forms of c...

FIVE CENTURIES OF EUROPEAN PAINTING
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0714

Revealing the power of color as physical medium, a key to interpretation, and a mediator of social and political change This expansive study of color illuminates the substance, context, and meaning of five centuries of European painting.

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...

(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...

(P/B) BODY, MEMORY, AND ARCHITECTURE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0090

As teachers of architectural design, Kent Bloomer and Charles Moore have attempted to introduce architecture from the standpoint of how buildings are experienced, how the affect individuals and communities emotionally and provide us with a sense of joy, identity, and place. In giving priority to these issues and in questioning the professional reliance on abstract two-dimensional drawings, they often find themselves in conflict with a general and undebated assumption that architecture is a highly specialized system with a set of prescribed...

(P/B) ARABS
A 3,000-YEAR HISTORY OF PEOPLES, TRIBES AND EMPIRES
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0725

This kaleidoscopic book covers almost 3,000 years of Arab history and shines a light on the footloose Arab peoples and tribes who conquered lands and disseminated their language and culture over vast distances. Tracing this process to the origins of the Arabic language, rather than the advent of Islam, Tim Mackintosh-Smith begins his narrative more than a thousand years before Muhammad and focuses on how Arabic, both spoken and written, has functioned as a vital source of shared cultural identity over the millennia. Mackintosh-Smith reveal...
