Gaon,Saadya ; Frank, Daniel (editor); ; Altmann, Alexander (translator)
Saadya ben Joseph al-Fayyumi (882-942), gaon (head) of the rabbinic academy at Sura and one of the pre-eminent Jewish thinkers of the medieval period, attempted to create a complete statement of Jewish religious philosophy in which all strands of philosophical thought were to be knit into a unified system. In "The Book of Doctrines and Beliefs", Saadya sought to rescue believers from 'a sea of doubt and the waters of confusion' into which they had been cast by Christianity, Islam, and other faiths. By employing philosophical - or kalamic - argumentation to examine and defend traditional Jewish beliefs, Saadya hoped to turn blind faith into conviction based on rational understanding. First published in 1946, and reprinted here without alteration, Alexander Altmann's judicious abridgement of his own translation has remained the standard edition of this influential work. A new Introduction by Daniel Frank sets Saadya's work in its broader historical, cultural, and philosophical contexts. 194pp.

Tomasevski, Katerina
This volume maps out the response of states to human rights violations over the period 1946-1999 and offers a complete record for this period. Its starting point is that such responses are not established and accepted state practice. Traditional, if unwritten, norms of states' behaviour developed through centuries of silence and inaction; the prevalent reaction to human rights violations by another state remains the absence of any response. Furthermore, this book probes into evidence of active and passive complicity by reviewing aid to countries in which violations have been taking place and diplomatic initiatives undertaken to shield violators from public opprobrium. Since international law is generated through state practice, the book highlights the ongoing tussle between the pre-1946 heritage of silence and inaction and the 1946-1999 haphazard pattern of responses to violations. 420pp.

Lindberg, Ted
Ted Lindberg captures the development in life and art of one of Canada's finest painters. Over the past forty years Pnina Granirer has been exploring and extending her perception of the world around us with exuberantly colourful and formally innovative paintings and prints. Lindberg analyses in detail Granirer's art from her early years in Romania through her student drawings in Israel to her mature works in Canada. He offers detailed accounts of the major thematic developments: the Childhood Magic Series, the West Coast Suite, the Carved Stones Series, the Trials of Eve Suite, and the Eden Series. Lindberg also reveals how Granirer's recent work successfully challenges the age old nature/culture dichotomy and re-configures the vision of the artist to include Woman in all her many guises. A special section is devoted to her work as a printmaker. The book also provides an extensive bibliography, listing Granirer's artistic activities, her exhibitions, collections and commissions. N.B. Limited Edition of 100 Copies with Signed, Numbered Print. Head and tail of spine and corners of boards slightly rubbed. Bottom edge of D/J very slightly shelf worn. 191pp.
