Ramsden, E.H.
Although the book centres on an intensive study of five specific pictures,united by a provocative Prologue and Epilogue,the quest for identities has necessitated a close consideration of a number of works by other painters.The 'myth' of Giorgione has been critically examined and evidence from an exceptionally wide field of studies has been advanced in support of the author's proposed solutions to a variety of long outstanding problems.219pp.

Whelan, Richard
Slight crease to the spine. Slight crease to head of d/j spine. The author describes the causes, events and consequences of a conflict he calls "a world war in miniature". He addresses such questions as why the Truman administration decided to intrude militarily in Korea after merely protesting when Eastern Europe and China fell to the communists, why the United States risked causing World War III to save a repressive regime and why the Americans settled for something less than the resounding victory they had come to expect. In Whelan's analysis, the war had momentous repercussions for NATO, the UN, Russia, China and the arms race. And it provided the prologue to America's next war in Asia - Vietnam. 428pp.

Ohana, David
In the turbulent period between 1870 and 1930, the contours on modernity were taking shape, especially the connections between technology, politics and aesthetics. The trilogy "The Nihilist Order" traces the genealogy of the nihilist-totalitarian syndrome. Until now, nihilism and totalitarianism were considered opposites: one an orderless state of affairs, the other a strict regimented order. On closer scrutiny, however, a surprising affinity can be found between these two concepts that dominated the history of the first half of the twentieth century. Starting with Nietzsche's philosophy, this book traces the development of an intellectual school characterised by the paradoxical dual purpose of a wish to destroy, coupled with a strong desire to create imposing structures. This explosive combination of nihilist leanings together with a craving for totalitarianism was an ideal of philosophers, cultural critics, political theorists, engineers, architects and aesthetes long before it materialised in flesh and blood, not only in technology, but also in fascism, Nazism, bolshevism and radical European political movements. Friedrich Nietzsche, Georges Sorel, the Italian Futurists, led by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, and Ernst Junger were all well-known intellectual and cultural figures. Here they are seen and understood in a different light, as creators of a modern political mythology that became a source of inspiration for belligerent ideological camps. Among the ideas propagated by this school, and later adopted by totalitarian regimes, were historical nihilism, a revolt against the rationalistic and universalistic pretensions of the Enlightenment, an affirmation of the dynamism of modern life, and the replacement of the traditional Judeo-Christian values of good and evil by other dualities such as authenticity and decadence. Concurrently there took place affirmation of the technological era, the creation of a 'new man' and a violent order, and the birth of a new political style in place of traditional world-views. When channeled into the political sphere, these aesthetic nihilist ideas paved the way for the rise of totalitarianism. 221pp.
