Schwabsky, Barry
In this collection of critical essays the well-known critic Barry Schwabsky reexamines the art produced since the 1960s, demonstrating how the achievements of "high modernism" remain consequential to it, through tensions among representation, abstraction, and pictorial language. With the core of the book focused on Michelangelo Pistoletto and Mel Bochner, Schwabsky also studies the work of emerging artists who also continue to examine modernism's legacies. 230pp.

Edited By Fleming, Walter Lynwood
The purpose of these two final volumes is to round out this historical account by focusing on the Southern men and women who have contributed in a marked degree to the life and development of the South and the nation. Written from a sympathetic point of view, volume XI and XII constitute a quick reference to these leaders. Limitations of space may have led to the omission of some figures that another collection might have included. No attempt at glorification is made, and accuracy of social and historical setting is a priority. Character, personality, and individuality have always been treasured in the South. Those qualities are celebrated here. Volume XII lists entries for individuals with last names starting with the letters from K to Z., including Robert E. Lee, Meriwether Lewis and Jeb Stuart. 576pp.PLEASE NOTE THIS BOOK NUMBER REFERS TO VOLUME 11,VOLUME 12 BIOGRAPHY K-Z IS ALSO AVAILABLE SEE OUR LISTING BOOK NUMBER #006490.

Blum, Lawrence A.; Seidler, Victor J.
Previous owner's signature on ffep.Simone Weil - philosopher, trade union militant, factory worker - developed a penetrating critique of Marxism and a powerful political philosophy which serves as an alternative both to liberalism and Marxism. In A Truer Liberty , Blum and Seidler show how Simone Weil's philosophy differed from Marxism: she sought to put political action on a firmly moral basis. Weil criticized Marxism for its confidence in progress and revolution and its attendant illusory belief that history is on the side of the proletariat. The authors relate Weil's work to influential trends in political philosophy today, from the 'analytic' Marxism of Gerald Cohen and others to the liberal tradition of Anglo-American political philosophy represented by Rawls, Dworkin, and others.346pp.
