Through detailed explorations of the full range of Indian philosophical concerns, including some metaphilosophical issues, it provides readers with non-Western perspectives on central areas of philosophy, including epistemology, logic, metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of religion. Chapters are structured thematically, with each including suggestions for further reading. This provides readers with an informed overview whilst enabling them to focus on particular topics if needed. Translated Sanskrit texts are accompanied by authorial explanations and contextualisations, giving the reader an understanding of the argumentative context and philosophical style of Indian texts. A detailed glossary and a guide to Sanskrit pronunciation equip readers with the tools needed for reading and understanding Sanskrit terms and names. The book will be an essential resource for both beginners and advanced students of philosophy and Asian studies.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/fbdf01ef/9780521618694.jpg|9780521618694|An Introduction to Indian Philosophy : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521618694 : 25 Jan 2016 : Thematically structured, wide-ranging and philosophically rigorous, including details of Indian arguments and their theoretical motivations. ...|new|1|1|3|25.99|0|GBP|Roy W.

Focusing on the controversial journal Die Reihe, this book traces serialism's cultural history, its debt to the artistic theories of Klee and Mondrian, and its relationship to contemporary developments in concrete art, poetry and information aesthetics. It sketches a aesthetic theory of serialism as an experimental music.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/a11a9191/9780521619929.jpg|9780521619929|Serial Music, Serial Aesthetics : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521619929 : 08 Jun 2005 : A study of serial music, an important aesthetic movement in post-war Europe.|new|1|1|998|41.99|0|GBP|M.

She considers verbal collage, pictorial collage, and the hybrids they generate, and discusses the works of Max Ernst and André Breton, as well as those of Aragon, Brunius, Eluard, Hugnet, Magritte, Péret, Styrsky and others. Focusing on the recycling of art-historical icons, the parodic reworking of narrative clichés, the concept of defamiliarisation of the banal, or the relations between part bodies and totalities, she offers close readings of individual collages, and links specific aspects of collage practice to central issues of surrealist aesthetic and political thought. Throughout this well illustrated study Adamowicz confronts the 'monstrous' nature of collage, grounded on excess and composed of irretrievable fragments and hovering signs.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/5954b3a2/9780521619875.jpg|9780521619875|Surrealist Collage in Text and Image : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521619875 : 17 Feb 2005 : A new analysis of Surrealist collage in France, leading to a radical reassessment of Surrealism.|new|1|1|998|36.99|0|GBP|Elza Adamowicz|Cambridge University Press|17 Feb 2005|Collage & photomontage 9780521618250|Kant's 'Critique of Pure Reason'|25.97|https://wordery.com/kants-critique-of-pure-reason-jill-vance-buroker-9780521618250|In this new introductory textbook to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, Jill Vance Buroker explains the role of this first Critique in Kant's Critical project and offers a line-by-line reading of the major arguments in the text. She situates Kant's views in relation both to his predecessors and to contemporary debates, explaining his Critical philosophy as a response to the failure of rationalism and the challenge of skepticism. Paying special attention to Kant's notoriously difficult vocabulary, she explains the strengths and weaknesses of his arguments, while leaving the final assessment up to the reader. Intended to be read alongside the Critique (also published by Cambridge University Press as part of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Immanuel Kant in Translation), this guide is accessible to readers with little background in the history of philosophy, but should also be a valuable resource for more advanced students.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/f1c495a4/9780521618250.jpg|9780521618250|Kant's 'Critique of Pure Reason' : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521618250 : 06 Oct 2006 : This book is an introductory textbook explaining the role of the first Critique in Kant's philosophy.|new|1|1|999|26.99|0|GBP|Jill Vance Buroker|Cambridge University Press|06 Oct 2006|Philosophy: epistemology & theory of knowledge 9780521617451|The Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895|35.97|https://wordery.com/the-sino-japanese-war-of-1894-1895-s-c-m-paine-9780521617451|This book examines the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-5, a significant event in world history virtually ignored in Western literature. Japan so rapidly defeated China that citizens of Europe suddenly perceived Japan, not only as the dominant power of Asia, but also as a key international player. Western disgust with Chinese military performance led to their rapidly growing intrusions on Chinese sovereignty while Japan soon became an ally of the ruling superpower, Great Britain. To the present day, China is still struggling to reverse the judgment of this war and restore its regional dominance.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/5980ff14/9780521617451.jpg|9780521617451|The Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895 : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521617451 : 11 Apr 2005 : This book examines the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-5, a seminal event in world history.|new|1|1|998|36.99|0|GBP|S.

The first part explores the historical and cultural contexts and sexual politics of literary modernism and the avant garde. The chapters in the second part concentrate on individual authors and movements, while the concluding part offers a comprehensive overview of the early reception and subsequent canonisation of modernist poetry. As well as insightful readings of canonical poets, the Companion features extended discussions of poets whose importance is now being increasingly recognised, such as Mina Loy, poets of the Harlem Renaissance, and postcolonial poets in the Caribbean, Africa and India. While modernist poets are often thought of as difficult, these essays will help students to understand and enjoy their experimental, playful and fascinating responses to contemporary social and cultural change and their dialogue with the arts and with each other.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/500e9edd/9780521618151.jpg|9780521618151|The Cambridge Companion to Modernist Poetry : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521618151 : 19 Jul 2007 : A comprehensive and accessible overview of modernist poetry, its forms, its major authors and its contexts.|new|1|1|999|27.99|0|GBP|Alex Davis|Cambridge University Press|19 Jul 2007|Literary studies: poetry & poets 9780521619394|The Practice of Performance|30.97|https://wordery.com/the-practice-of-performance-john-rink-9780521619394|The twelve essays in this volume reflect the most important trends in the study of musical performance. Three areas are investigated: the psychology of performance, the semantics of performance, and the relation between performance and analysis. The first section broaches fundamental issues such as text, expression, musical motion and the role of practice in the acquisition of expertise. The next four chapters address the shaping of structure and the projection of meaning in performance, while the last four consider performance as analytical paradigm, as dramatic narrative, as act of criticism, as temporal process. Among the distinguished international authorship are many accomplished performers whose practical experience ensures that the book contains vital and stimulating insights into the interpretation of music, and that it will speak to a wide musical audience.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/dbd59187/9780521619394.jpg|9780521619394|The Practice of Performance : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521619394 : 17 Feb 2005 : The twelve essays in this volume reflect the most important trends in the study of musical performance.|new|1|1|998|31.99|0|GBP|John Rink|Cambridge University Press|17 Feb 2005|Techniques of music / music tutorials 9780521616690|The Cambridge History of Greek and Roman Political Thought|45.97|https://wordery.com/the-cambridge-history-of-greek-and-roman-political-thought-christopher-rowe-9780521616690|Beginning with Homer and ending in late antiquity with Christian and pagan reflections on divine and human order, this volume is the first general and comprehensive treatment of Rome ever to be published in English.

Following the early phase of slow growth, he charts the transformation of the economy as a result of the discovery of diamonds and gold in the 1870s, and the rapid rise of industry in the wartime years. Finally, emphasizing the ways by which the black population was deprived of land, and induced to supply labor for white farms, mines and factories, Feinstein documents the introduction of apartheid after 1948, and its consequences for economic performance,|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/46a66d10/9780521616416.jpg|9780521616416|An Economic History of South Africa : Paperback : Cambridge University Press : 9780521616416 : 23 Jun 2005 : This book examines five hundred years of South African economic history.|new|1|1|998|28.99|0|GBP|Charles H.

Dancing with Strangers tells the story of what happened between the first British settlers of Australia and these Aborigines. Inga Clendinnen interprets the earliest written sources, and the reports, letters and journals of the first British settlers in Australia. She reconstructs the difficult path to friendship and conciliation pursued by Arthur Phillip and the local leader 'Bennelong' (Baneelon) that was ultimately destroyed by the assertion of profound cultural differences. A Prize-winning archaeologist, anthropologist and historian of ancient Mexican cultures, Inga Clendinnen has spent most of her teaching career at La Trobe University in Bundoora, Australia. Ambivalent Conquests: Maya and Spaniard in Yucatan (Cambridge, 1989) and Aztecs: An Interpretation (Cambridge, 1995) are two of her best-known scholarly works; Tiger's Eye: A Memoir, (Scribner, 2001) describes her battle against liver cancer.

Carnival, charivari, mumming plays, peasant festivals, and even early versions of the Santa Claus myth - all of these forms of entertainment influenced and shaped blackface minstrelsy in the first half of the nineteenth century. In his fascinating study Demons of Disorder, musicologist Dale Cockrell studies issues of race and class by analysing their cultural expressions, and investigates the roots of still remembered songs such as 'Jim Crow', 'Zip Coon', and 'Dan Tucker'. Also examined is the character George Washington Dixon, the man most deserving of the title 'father of blackface minstrelsy' and surely one of celebrity's all-time heavyweight eccentrics - a bonafide 'demon of disorder'. The first book on the blackface tradition written by a leading musicologist, Demons of Disorder is an important achievement in music history and culture. american literature,arts music and photography,drama,home and garden,history,history and criticism,humanities,humor and entertainment,literature,literature and fiction Performing Arts, Cambridge University Press
