Flowers, Arthur;Curtis, Anthony;Neiman, Leroy
This coffee-table art book is one-of-a-kind. From hundreds of portrayals created over centuries by celebrated artists, such as Cezanne, Picasso, Munch, Leger, de la Tour, Remington, and Neiman, the best 120 were chosen to appear in this provocative visual documentation of the evolution of gambling. Much more than a compilation of subject-specific art, this book offers a scholarly look at the history of gaming. Each image is accompanied by a facing page of text, providing readers with a thumbnail sketch of the artist, then zeroing in on the image itself. The renderings, as seen through the artist's eye and preserved on canvas or in stone, serve as a form of 'photographic' chronicling that weaves a history of gambling through the ages - for the benefit of art lovers and gambling enthusiasts alike. 231pp. N.B. Tiny closed tear to bottom edge of front D/J.

Edited By Harris, Jonathan M; Goodwin, Neva R.
Presenting new and innovative perspectives on macroeconomics at the national and international level, the editors bring together contributions on a wide range of topics including: social, institutional and environmental perspectives; current issues of globalization; transitional economies; inequity; unemployment; national and international debt; and the relationship of macroeconomic policies to the environment. The contributors draw on expertise in a variety of areas to provide insight into debates on macroeconomic policy in the US and Europe, as well as in developing and transitional economies. Themes include: disequilibrium in the macroeconomy - analysis of the roots of instability and crisis in national and global systems; the evolution of macroeconomic institutions to stabilize and guide economic growth; the paradoxes of globalization, the dangers of unrestricted financial flows and the impacts of globalization on national institutional coherence; macro and institutional strategies for the transitional economies of Russia and Eastern Europe; distributional and equity issues, including employment, housing and homelessness; the impact of macroeconomic policy and debt on the environment; and long-term growth and its relationship to well-being and environmental sustainability. 259pp. n.B. Slight scratch to rear D/J.
