B/W356, Illust. Color0, ISBN None, Code 0693. Hardbound, Not in perfect condition., Pages 72, Size 8Ó sq, Iceland 1974, Finnland 1999. This is the first time in its 10 year history that the Museum of Contemporary Art is featuring an exhibition dedicated exclusively to comics. The goal here is to highlight recent work from the 1990s, introducing a selection of new, upcoming artists. Contemporary Finnish comic strips portray small-scale scenes from everyday life, often reflecting on themes related to the human condition in the modern world. TodayÕs comics can be conceived as having a therapeutic role when we open our newspapers in the morning. This, precisely is what makes comics an artform that is accessible to everyone!, Finnish/ English, Year1999, Illust. B/W55, Illust. Color18, ISBN 9515319633, Code 5263. Softbound, In Pristine Condition, Location of Exhibition: Kiasma, Museum of COnteporary Art, Helsinki, Finnland 1999, Cat. of exh. Pages 52, Size 11 1/2Óx 8Ó, Finnland 1999, Monthly Review Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Through a Glass Darkly was William Hintons last book. It draws on a lifetime of immersion in Chinese politics and society, beginning with the seven years he spent in China, working mainly in agriculture and land reform, until 1953. On his return to the United States in that year, Hinton first encountered the distortions and misrepresentations of the Chinese Revolution that he examines in this book. Hinton defends the achievements of the Chinese Revolution during the three decades from 1948 to 1979 from its detractors both in the United States and, since 1979, in China itself. His starting point is the work of John K. Fairbank, for many years a professor at Harvard and the dean of China Studies in the United States. But it is not limited to critique. Instead, Hintons critique of Fairbank leads into a wide-ranging examination of the nature of the transformation attempted in China, its social and political bases, and the causes and consequences of its policies in land reform, agriculture, combating famine, popular culture, industrialization, morality, and much else besides. Moving from large questions to concrete details, often drawn from his own experiences, Hinton brings everyday life in revolutionary China graphically to life. In a time when the distorted views first developed by U. S. critics of the Chinese Revolution are often propagated by the new Chinese elite themselves, Through a Glass Darkly has more than just historical relevance. For anyone wishing to understand present-day rivalries between the United States and China, Hinton shows how these began. This is a fitting completion of the work of a great scholar and revolutionary. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Monthly Review Press
