Description:
London: Thames & Hudson, September 2002. Paperback. First Paperback Edition (stated). Near Fine. Unmarked. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Light rubbing to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 240 pages. 9.25 x 12 inches. 865 illustrations and photographs. The marvelous achievements of African artists over thousands of years are revealed and superbly portrayed in this book. The earliest pieces date from the beginning of the first millennium, the most recent from the early twentieth century before the commercial production of art for the tourist trade. All were made by Africans for their own use. The author has divided Africa south of the Sahara into forty-nine cultural areas. Each section studies the most important tribe within that area, surveying its social and political structures as well as its artistic production. The art is analyzed according to type: in most instances masks, statues, and everyday objects such as utensils, furniture, and jewelry.… Read More

Not from a library. No remainder mark. 274 pages + 27 page reader's guide. A novel of love, risk, and self-discovery. Angela can feel the clock ticking. She is single in New York City, stuck in a job she doesn't want and a life that seems to have, somehow, just happened. She inherited a flair for Italian cooking from her grandmother, but she never seems to have the time for it-these days, her oven holds only sweaters. Tacked to her office bulletin board is a photo from a magazine of a tidy cottage on the coast of Maine-a charming reminder of a life that could be hers, if she could only muster the courage to go after it. On a hope and a chance, Angela decides to pack it all up and move to Maine, finding the nudge she needs in the dating profile of a handsome sailor who loves dogs and Italian food. But her new… Read More

Description:
Berkeley: University of California Press, February 1993. Hardcover. First Edition / full number line. Good+ book in a Fine jacket. Occassional ink emphasis marks from a prior owner. Spine square and tight. Jacket clean and crisp. Foxing to edges. 362 pagers. This wide-ranging examination of Arab society and culture offers a unique opportunity to know the Arab world from an Arab point of view. Halim Barakat, an expatriate Syrian who is both a scholar and a novelist, emphasizes the dynamic changes and diverse patterns that have characterized the Middle East since the mid-19th century. His is a picture that differs dramatically from the static one portrayed by much of Western scholarship. Barakat maintains that the unequal power relationships between Western imperial forces and Arabs have strongly influenced Western writing, thereby limiting our understanding of what it means to be Arab. The Arab world is not one shaped by Islam, or one simply explained by reference to the sectarian conflicts of a… Read More

In this course, you will learn from two masters: Professor Bartlett himself, and the eminent 19th-century art historian Jacob Burckhardt, who created the scholarly model of cultural history through which the Renaissance is still widely studied today.Lecture 1 The Study of the Italian Renaissance ; Lecture 2 The… Read More
