Dog by Leon Golub( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leon Golub's DOG is a guide to the third Millennium. It is a manual that, in the words of J.G. Ballard, challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions. Who are we and why are we here? Akin to John Gray's Straw Dogs, Golub's DOG explores what the world and human life could be once humanism is put aside. Golub shows us homeless dogs, bondage dogs, running dogs, atomic dogs, in other words, not domestic dogs at all. And with them there is random movement, collapsed space and entropic fields. Everything seems contingent, things are in permanent transformation and yet forming, if only for a moment, what Golub calls the 'necessary and urgent symbolism of our time'. Hans Ulrich Obrist"--Back cover

"Intended for graduate students and astronomers seeking an introduction to coronal physics, this textbook strikes a balance between the observational and theoretical aspects of the subject. This second edition takes into account the major observational and theoretical developments of recent years to provide an up-to-date treatment of our understanding of the solar corona. After reviewing the latest observations of the solar corona, the authors explain how the studies have advanced and shaped our understanding of coronal physics. The textbook introduces a wide variety of exciting physics, including dynamo theory and radiative transfer, and shows how the transient effects of the solar cycle affect space weather. Each subject area is introduced using basic physics, and refers readers to fundamental papers on the topic, key new studies in each area, and extensive discussions in recent review articles"--Couverture

Leon Golub (1922-2004) was one of postwar America's most politically engaged artists. His frieze-like figurations of human cruelty and the crimes of warfare kept political painting alive throughout the countless changings of the avant garde of the 1960s and 70s, and his vocal ethical stance and intransigent emphasis on content remains refreshing today. Golub addressed events as they unfurled, from Vietnam to South Africa to Iraq and Afghanistan, confronting chilling acts of brutality head-on, in a weathered, scratchy style synthesized from sources as various as Etruscan and Roman art, French history painting, pornography and sports photographs. This attractively designed full Golub overview accompanies a 2011 retrospective exhibition at Reina Sofía. Including 150 color plates, it surveys paintings from the 1950s to the present, giving Golub's heroic life work its full due
