Leonardo, The
Last Supper

Pinin Brambilla Barcilon

and Pietro C. Marani
Translated by Harlow Tighe

This extraordinary volume, which

documents the technical history of
the two-decade-long restoration in the
context of the broader history of the
work itself, is what art historians have
been waiting for. . . . Between the two
essays are contained 249 pages of the
most breathtakingly beautiful photographs in modern art.Sixteenth

Ralf Georg Reuth unveils the real
Rommel, stripping away the layers of propaganda created by both
the Nazis and Allies for their own

Rommel contrary to the post-war

to the Fhrer until forced to commit suicide; a man who owed his
fame to Joseph Goebbels.

Burning Women

A Global History of Widow-Sacrifice

from Ancient Times to the Present

Joerg Fisch
The practice of widow-burning
combines strong spiritual beliefs in
the hereafter with the more secular power struggles of this world,
both between the sexes and social
groups. Widow burning in India
has long been passionately debated,
but its practice in other parts of the
world has been neglected. Burning
Women is the first history of the
anthropological, religious, social
and political contexts of widowburning across the world.

that breakfast, the full English or

In this rigorous investigation of the

and the Federalists, to Foucault
and the framers of the European
constitution, Mairet examines the
articulation of the concept through
the bloody history of European
colonialism. He also shows how
the reconstitution of the European
political community after World
War II offered the hope of a postsovereign mode of political beingin-the-world.

Caravaggio was the most revolutionary artist of the Italian
Baroque. The intensity and drama
of his chiaroscuro style is matched
only by his life. Outlaw, heretic,
murderer and sensualist are some
of the charges brought against him
by his contemporaries. Beyond his
penchant for unidealized representations of life, Caravaggios work
addressed a number of issues that
are as compelling today as they
were in early seventeenth century.

Represented in the permanent collections of world-renowned museums, including the Tate Modern

the works of Robert Therrien are
enigmatically complex and elude
classification. Robert Therrien now
reveals the compelling power of
Therriens art, demonstrating how
he draws upon everyday objects
such as dishware and furniture,
architectural elements, and other
unique inspirations to create his art.

Painting the Difference

Sex and Spectator in Modern Art

Charles Harrison
Harrison wants to show how
much more psychologically and
politically complex are the depictions of women in some key
Impressionist and early 20thcentury paintings than is generally
made out by their feminist interpreters.Art Monthly
Harrison thus proposes that
a central task of early modernist
painting was to generate critical
reflection about the automatic
identification of vision with the
viewpoint of one sex and class.

The book is shockingly beautiful,

using rigorously formal compositions and ambient natural light
to illuminate the often austere
glories of Chicago public buildings by architects both deservedly famous (Mies van der Rohe,
Rem Koolhaas, Helmut Jahn) and
deservedly unknown. . . . In his
way, Fortino is as conscious an artist as his modernist forebears, from
Mondrian to Barnett Newman, Ad
Reinhardt, Dan Flavin and other
icons of American minimalism.

The Star-Crossed Stone

The Secret Life, Myths, and History of

a Fascinating Fossil

Kenneth J. McNamara
A fascinating story about sea
urchin fossils from Neolithic times
to the present. It is much more
than a summary of the folklore
surrounding a particular fossil,
however: it also traces the evolution of mythmaking, the human
urge to collect, and the development of complex symbolic thought,
combining archaeology, paleontology, folklore, and anthropology in
wonderful, surprising ways.

The Dawn of the Deed

The Prehistoric Origins of Sex

John A. Long
From sharks that mate while
doing a headstand on the ocean
floor to ducks with enormous
corkscrew penises, John Long
humorously details the how and
why of that funny little act we
call sex. At times, the book is a
bit heavy on autobiography of his
paleontological finds, but thats
more than made up for by copious entertaining anecdotes about
things like fruit bat fellatio and
necrophilic snakes. Also, two
words: T-rex sex.Salon

A sweeping, lapidary history of
our relationship with dogs.
Kirkus Reviews
A thorough and well-researched
book that chronicles the evolution
of the dog-human relationship,
examines specific dog behaviors
and explores the various careers
of working dogs. No-nonsense
and refreshingly unflinching in its
approach, this book explains why,
as Derr puts it, the single greatest
problem with dogs is people.

Shakespeares Freedom


A Radical Anatomy of Phantoms

Keston Sutherland
From Shakespeare to Beckett, the
contradictory figure of the fool
who possesses unexpected wisdom
has been a popular and effective
literary trope and rhetorical figure
for centuries. Philosophy needs idiots too, argues Keston Sutherland.
Here he examines how speculative and satirical descriptions
of stupidity function in art and
argument. His examples include
Alexander Popes dunce, Adornos
philistine, and Wordsworths
mechanical adopter of poetic diction. Sutherland also provides an
important new account of the figure of the bourgeois in Marx.
