Consuming Fashion


$2.05


Clothing the body is one of the most complicated acts of daily existence. When a nun ponders red shoes, an architect knots his bowtie, a lesbian laces her Doc Marten’s, or a nude model disrobes, each is engaging in a process of identity-making that is both intensely personal and deeply social. In an increasingly material world, negotiating dress codes is a nuanced art, informed by shifting patterns of power and authority, play and performance, as well as gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity and race. Drawing on ethnographic knowledge to connect theory and practice, authors reveal links between material culture, social and economic forces and personal performance – from trade beads to Barbie, and from Taiwanese producer to Nike consumer – to explain clothing choices through time and across cultures. Conventional understandings of the self, subject and society are shown to be inadequate when examining the interconnections of cultural and transnational economic systems of production and consumption that have a profound effect on human choice. Social climates in which dress accrues meaning are increasingly global climates, where women’s bodies are commodified, gender categories are rigidly bound, and sweatshop labourers are slaves to boundless consumer appetite. This interdisciplinary book represents an important contribution to a fascinating and contested realm of human experience, and will be indispensable for anyone interested in the sociology, anthropology and psychology of fashion, cultural studies or the fashion industry.

Brueghel's Heavy Dancers


Brueghel’s Heavy Dancers


$38.58


Erudite, perceptive, and witty, as always, John Friedman shows the social implications and symbolism of medieval clothing. Paul Freedman, Yale UniversityWith a sharp eye for fashion and an astute analysis of cultural indicators permeating this body of literature, Friedman uncovers commonalities and contrasts, underscoring ways in which social status, and even fear in the face of change, were concerns that extended beyond national boundaries in medieval Europe. Geri L. Smith, author of The Medieval French Pastourelle TraditionWhat do Brueghel’s mid-sixteenth-century portrayals of heavy wedding dancers and feasters have in common with many late medieval poems and manuscript illustrations? Art historians have often treated Brueghel’s paintings, with their obsessive social detail, as if they heralded a set of cultural attitudes peculiar to the Early Modern period. Yet the way that the painter combines, in a single scene, scurrilous behavior with dress not only unsuited to the rustic status of the wearers but often sexually revealing, reflects attitudes toward clothing, class, and culture that are deeply medieval. In this expansive and highly original book, Friedman shows how conventional portrayals of obedient peasants, dating back to classical antiquity, were increasingly replaced in the Middle Ages by representations of realistic peasants, whose outrageous behavior betrayed their class while threatening those who stood above. Capacious in scope, the book covers poems from England, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain from the twelfth through the sixteenth centuries. In addition, Friedman draws on texts from various genres, particularly the pastourelle, giving readers the first panoramic approach to late medieval views of peasant clothing and certain related social behaviors such as eating, public excretion, brawling, and mooning. The book examines elite anxiety over the socially striving lower classes during a period in which social ident

The internet has recently grown from a fringe cultural phenomenon to a significant site of cultural production and transformation. Internet Culture maps this new domain of language, politics and identity, locating it within the histories of communication and the public sphere. Internet Culture offers a critical interrogation of the sustaining myths of the virtual world and of the implications of the current mass migration onto the electronic frontier. Among the topics discussed in Internet Culture are the virtual spaces and places created by the citizens of the Net and their claims to the hotly contested notion of “virtual community”; the virtual bodies that occupy such spaces; and the desires that animate these bodies. The contributors also examine the communication medium behind theworlds of the Net, analyzing the rhetorical conventions governing online discussion, literary antecedents, and potential pedagogical applications.

Modern Bodies


Modern Bodies


$40.85


In 1930, dancer and choreographer Martha Graham proclaimed the arrival of dance as an art of and from America. Dancers such as Doris Humphrey, Ted Shawn, Katherine Dunham, and Helen Tamiris joined Graham in creating a new form of dance, and, like other modernists, they experimented with and argued over their aesthetic innovations, to which they assigned great meaning. Their innovations, however, went beyond aesthetics. While modern dancers devised new ways of moving bodies in accordance with many modernist principles, their artistry was indelibly shaped by their place in society. Modern dance was distinct from other artistic genres in terms of the people it attracted: white women (many of whom were Jewish), gay men, and African American men and women. Women held leading roles in the development of modern dance on stage and off; gay men recast the effeminacy often associated with dance into a hardened, heroic, American athleticism; and African Americans contributed elements of social, African, and Caribbean dance, even as their undervalued role defined the limits of modern dancers’ communal visions. Through their art, modern dancers challenged conventional roles and images of gender, sexuality, race, class, and regionalism with a view of American democracy that was confrontational and participatory, authorial and populist. Modern Bodies exposes the social dynamics that shaped American modernism and moved modern dance to the edges of society, a place both provocative and perilous.

Modern Art

There are many different kinds of art. The very definition of art is to cause or create a reaction. Modern Art is not exactly the most conventional, ethical, or down right moral way of presenting one’s expression-that particular expression being the use of the human form. The bone structure, the pearlescent gleam of the spine, the spattering swirl of intestines pink and blue, glittering ivory teeth when pulled out one by one makes for an exemplary piece of unique design, all created by the sheer genius behind the blade. You say mutilation? No, it is creation! Skin looks good on one’s body, yes, but it looks even better as a lamp shade, or a coaster. Now that’s putting your heart into your work. And when someone decides to use the human body for display, an eye ball here, a muscle there, all sorts of creativity can come about! Art causes a reaction, yes? Fear no art.

Art of Happiness


Art of Happiness


$23.95


The Barnes & Noble ReviewIn recent months, numerous new books have attempted to draw connections between the traditions of East and West, particularly between Buddhist philosophy and spiritual practice and contemporary psychological thought. Most of these books have been written by conventionally educated Western psychologists and psychiatrists who have sought to fill in what are perceived as gaps in their practices – the sense that their scientific and medical knowledge just can’t explain everything – by turning to some aspect of Eastern spiritual practice, whether meditation or Zen or other forms of Buddhist philosophy. Dr. Howard Cutler, an Arizona-based psychiatrist and the author of The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living, is no exception to this trend. What makes his book unique, however, is Dr. Cutler’s source for the Buddhist thought he explores: his coauthor, Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, the spiritual and temporal leader of the people of Tibet. Through a series of in-depth conversations with the Dalai Lama, and through a number of the Dalai Lama’s public addresses, Dr. Cutler explores what Tibetan Buddhism might have to offer to Western conceptions of happiness. Dr. Cutler begins with the Dalai Lama’s words on the subject: “I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we are all seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is toward happiness.” As their furtherconversationreveals, however, Western notions of happiness have become confused with pleasure and the satisfaction of desire. Only by separating happiness from less durable forms of contentment can we truly achieve the happiness that the Dalai Lama believes is the goal of our lives: “.from

Excerpt: The 1955 Le Mans disaster occurred during the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans when a racing car involved in an accident flew into the crowd, killing the driver (Pierre Levegh ) and between 80-120 spectators. A further 100 people were injured in the accident. In terms of human toll, it is the most catastrophic accident in motorsports history. Before the accident Pierre Levegh, aged 50, had been hired by Mercedes-Benz as a factory driver that year. Part of his appeal to Mercedes was his determination shown in the 1952 race when he had driven for 23 straight hours. He had been leading due to not having taken the time to switch drivers, even though he did have a driver who could have replaced him. He failed to win only because of a missed gear change, resulting in engine failure, in the final hour of the race. Mercedes had also debuted its new 300 SLR sportscar in the 1955 World Sportscar Championship season, with some notable success, including a win at the Mille Miglia. The 300 SLR featured a body made of an ultralightweight magnesium alloy called Elektron with a specific gravity of just 1.8 (for reference, aluminium has a S.G. of 2.7 and steel 7.8). This body lowered the overall weight of the car, improving performance. The car, however, lacked the contemporary state-of-the-art disc brakes featured on the rival Jaguar D-Type, employing instead the conventional drum brake system. The high power of the car forced

Power of Art


Power of Art


$12.48


All art is subversive,” Pablo Picasso once declared. In The Power of Art, cultural historian Simon Schama emphatically agrees. “Great art,” he notes, “has dreadful manners. The hushed reverence of the gallery can fool you into believing masterpieces are polite things; visions that soothe, charm and beguile, but actually they are thugs. Merciless and wily, the greatest paintings grab you in a headlock, rough up your composure, and then proceed in short order to rearrange your sense of reality.” This powerful, full-bodied book zeroes in on eight gifted artistic thugs (Bernini, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, David, Turner, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Rothko) and their convention-breaking creations.

Prosthetic Gods


Prosthetic Gods


$10.99


How to imagine not only a new art or architecture but a new self or subject equal to them? In Prosthetic Gods, Hal Foster explores this question through the works and writings of such key modernists as Gauguin and Picasso, F.T. Marinetti and Wyndham Lewis, Adolf Loos and Max Ernst. These diverse figures were all fascinated by fictions of origin, either primordial and tribal or futuristic and technological. In this way, Foster argues, two forms came to dominate modernist art above all others: the primitive and the machine. Foster begins with the primitivist fantasies of Gauguin and Picasso, which he examines through the Freudian lens of the primal scene. He then turns to the purist obsessions of the Viennese architect Loos, who abhorred all things primitive. Next Foster considers the technophilic subjects propounded by the futurist Marinetti and the vorticist Lewis. These “new egos” are further contrasted with the “bachelor machines” proposed by the dadaist Ernst. Foster also explores extrapolations from the art of the mentally ill in the aesthetic models of Ernst, Paul Klee, and Jean Dubuffet, as well as manipulations of the female body in the surrealist photography of Brassai, Man Ray, and Hans Bellmer. Finally, he examines the impulse to dissolve the conventions of art altogether in the drip paintings of Jackson Pollock, the scatter pieces of Robert Morris, and the earthworks of Robert Smithson, and traces the evocation of lost objects of desire in sculptural work from Marcel Duchamp and Alberto Giacometti to Robert Gober. Although its title is drawn from Freud, Prosthetic Gods does not impose psychoanalytic theory on modernist art; rather, it sets the two into critical relation and scans the greater historical field that they share.

Loss Reserving: An Actuarial Perspective


Loss Reserving: An Actuarial Perspective


$463.24


All property and casualty insurers are required to carry out loss reserving as a statutory accounting function. Thus, loss reserving is an essential sphere of activity, and one with its own specialized body of knowledge. While few books have been devoted to the topic, the amount of published research literature on loss reserving has almost doubled in size during the last fifteen years. Greg Taylors book aims to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment of loss reserving that reflects contemporary research advances to date. Divided into two parts, the book covers both the conventional techniques widely used in practice, and more specialized loss reserving techniques employing stochastic models. Part I, Deterministic Models, covers very practical issues through the abundant use of numerical examples that fully develop the techniques under consideration. Part II, Stochastic Models, begins with a chapter that sets up the additional theoretical material needed to illustrate stochastic modeling. The remaining chapters in Part II are self-contained, and thus can be approached independently of each other. A special feature of the book is the use throughout of a single real life data set to illustrate the numerical examples and new techniques presented. The data set illustrates most of the difficult situations presented in actuarial practice. This book will meet the needs for a reference work as well as for a textbook on loss reserving. *Author: Taylor, G.

Something for Nothing: Luck in America


Something for Nothing: Luck in America


$1.99


Hailed by The New York Review of Books as “one of cultural history’s masters of linking popular moods and ideas with arts, philosophies, industries, and commodities,” prizewinning historian Jackson Lears has now written the most important, most wide-ranging, and most original book of his career. In Something for Nothing Lears documents how America’s culture of control is inextricably entwined with its culture of chance. Conventional wisdom has it that the Protestant ethic of hard work and self-control is what made America great, but a deep, seldom acknowledged reverence for luck runs through our history as well. Americans have embraced the seductive whims of chance, from African fortune-telling to Puritan folk superstitions right up to the current resurgence of casinos and lotteries. Drawing on a vast body of research, Lears ranges through the entire sweep of American history as he uncovers the hidden influence of risk taking, conjuring, soothsaying, and sheer dumb luck on our culture, politics, social lives, and economy. Written with impressive clarity and authority, Something for Nothing will be compared to Louis Menand’s bestselling The Metaphysical Club and Ann Douglas’s Terrible Honesty: Mongrel Manhattan in the 1920s. This is cultural history at its best-challenging, eye opening, deeply learned, and as surprising as it is illuminating. Author Biography: Jackson Lears’s previous books include No Place of Grace and Fables of Abundance: A Cultural History of Advertising in America. Lears is a Board of Governors Professor of History at Rutgers University and the editor of the distinguished journal Raritan. His articles have appeared in numerous magazines.

This book contains readings of American, British and European postmodern dances informed by feminist, postcolonialist, queer and poststructuralist theories. It explores the roles dance and space play in constructing subjectivity. By focusing on site-specific dance, the mutual construction of bodies and spaces, body-space interfaces and ‘in-between spaces,’ the dances and dance films are read ‘against the grain’ to reveal their potential for troubling conventional notions of subjectivity associated with a white, Western, heterosexual able-bodied, male norm.
