Soutine by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

17 editions published between 1950 and 1966 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hooman Majd offers a dramatic perspective on a country with global ambitions, an elaborate political culture, and enormous implications for world peace. Drawing on privileged access to the Iranian power elite, Majd argues that despite the violence of the disputed 2009 elections, a group of influential ayatollahs--including a liberal, almost-secular opposition--still believes in the Iranian republic; for them, "green" represents not a revolution but a civil rights movement, pushing the country inexorably toward democracy, albeit a particular brand of "Islamic democracy." With witty, candid, and intelligent reporting, Majd, himself the grandson of an esteemed ayatollah, introduces top-level politicians and clerics as well as ordinary people (even Jewish community leaders), all expressing pride for their ancient heritage and fierce independence from the West.--From publisher description

When we were three : the travel albums of George Platt Lynes, Monroe Wheeler, and Glenway Wescott, 1925-1935 by George Platt Lynes( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The travel albums of photographer George Platt Lynes, publisher Monroe Wheeler, and writer Glenway Wescott are illuminating documents of the American expatriate years. Together, this extraordinary menage-a-trois spent the heady inter-war period frequenting Paris, Villefranche-sur-Mer, and other European cities, meeting up with such lively personalities as Thornton Wilder, Jean Cocteau, Katherine Anne Porter, Man Ray, Rene Crevel, and Christian Berard. Inspired and encouraged by Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, and Jane Heap, all three men went on to pursue vibrant careers in the arts. Platt Lynes became a celebrated photographer, beginning in 1931; Wheeler started the extraordinary small press, Harrison of Paris, in 1930, before commencing a thirty-year career at New York's Museum of Modern Art; and Wescott became a bestselling fiction writer, first in 1927, with several highly acclaimed novels. The photographs are accompanied by two new original texts that help to interpret this remarkable triangular relationship, and that provide a context for this virtual who's who of the 1920s and 1930s."--BOOK JACKET
