Rhapsodies in black : art of the Harlem Renaissance by Rhapsodies in black( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two influences dominated in the art of early modernism: African art and the vitality of big city life. In Harlem, as in Paris and Berlin, artists were inspired to seek new forms and to collaborate on performances, films, and publications. Rhapsodies in Black speaks across the arts, reaching out from an exploration of the painters and sculptors of the time to consider film, theater, and dance. With contributions by distinguished authors from both sides of the Atlantic, it offers a kaleidoscope of provocative readings, showing that the issues and ideas of the Harlem Renaissance still resonate today

Lula of Brazil : the story so far by Richard Bourne( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's dramatic life story has captured the imagination of millions, and his progressive politics have brought hope and excitement to Brazil - and the world. This work is the first major English language biography of the metalworker who became president of Latin America's largest and most powerful country. In a clearly written, detailed narrative, Richard Bourne describes Lula's childhood hardships in an impoverished family, his days as a revered trade unionist, and the strike movement that brought down Brazil's military dictatorship. The book chronicles Lula's campaigns for the presidency, his first term in office beginning in 2002, a major corruption scandal, and his reelection in 2006. Throughout, Lula of Brazil connects this charismatic leader's life to larger issues, such as the difficulty of maintaining a progressive policy in an era of globalization. Brazil's contemporary history, parallels with other developing countries and other world leaders, the conservatism of Brazilian society, and other themes provide a rich backdrop for assessing the struggles, achievements, and failures of this major figure on both the Brazilian and the world stage."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Magna Carta manifesto : liberties and commons for all by Peter Linebaugh( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This remarkable book shines a fierce light on the current state of liberty and shows how longstanding restraints against tyranny - and the rights of habeas corpus, trial by jury, and due process of law, and the prohibition of torture - are being abridged. In providing a sweeping history of Magna Carta, the source of these protections since 1215, this powerful book demonstrates how these ancient rights are repeatedly laid aside when the greed of privatization, the lust for power, and the ambition of empire seize a state. Peter Linebaugh draws on primary sources to construct a wholly original history of the Great Charter and its scarcely-known companion, the Charter of the Forest, which was created at the same time to protect the subsistence rights of the poor

Victorian book design and colour printing by Ruari McLean( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colour printing and the decoration and illustration of books and their bindings flourished in England in an extraordinary and unprecedented way between about 1830 and 1880. Ruari McLean describes how the period begins with the introduction of chromolithography and the inventions of Baxter and others, and ends with the introduction around 1880 of photo-mechanical methods, which spelled the death of old hand crafts whose triumphs and even excesses are the subject of this book"--Dust jacket flap

The road to 9/11 : wealth, empire, and the future of America by Peter Dale Scott( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an ambitious, meticulous examination of how U.S. foreign policy since the 1960s has led to partial or total cover-ups of past domestic criminal acts, including, perhaps, the catastrophe of 9/11. Peter Dale Scott, whose previous books have investigated CIA involvement in southeast Asia, the drug wars, and the Kennedy assassination, here probes how the policies of presidents since Nixon have augmented the tangled bases for the 2001 terrorist attack. Scott shows how America's expansion into the world since World War II has led to momentous secret decision making at high levels. He demonstrates how these decisions by small cliques are responsive to the agendas of private wealth at the expense of the public, of the democratic state, and of civil society. He shows how, in implementing these agendas, U.S. intelligence agencies have become involved with terrorist groups they once backed and helped create, including al Qaeda
