Т. Гейдор, П. Павлинов, А. Раскин Moscow. Architecture. History. Art / Москва. Архитектура. История. Искусство

Moscow... The very word has a majestic and powerful resonance. It almost seems to glow with the same brilliance as the golden domes of the city's churches and the burnished frames of their miraculous icons. Moscow's stellar brilliance is symbolic of its historical role as the gatherer of the Russian lands, the first capital where princes and tsars were crowned. Moscow took root in the very heart of the Russian lands and gradually became immortal. In 1812 the city was a sacrifice on the altar of war, yet precipitated the inglorious demise of Napoleons great army. During World War II Moscow suffered a great deal. The battle in the outskirts of Moscow was the first defeat of the Nazis. Although the city was repeatedly burned to the ground, it rose from the ashes each time like the phoenix. For the people of Russia the city was like a burning bush from which the voice of the country's destiny was to be heard in days of great sorrow and rejoicing. The stellar light that surrounds Moscow has never once been extinguished. Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the bells of the ancient cathedrals, restored to new life, can again be heard ringing out over "great and gold-domed" Moscow. This is the jubilant "voice of time" that resounds with the enormous energy and vigour of the past, while heralding the indubitable attainment of future heights. It is here in the voice of Moscow, as in its image as a whole, that Russia's underlying strength, its confidence in its ability to fulfi...

Of Women : In the 21st Century

Of Women : In the 21st Century

This book starts from the position that gender injustice is the greatest human rights abuse on the planet. It blights First and developing worlds; rich and poor women. Gender injustice impacts health, wealth, education, representation, opportunity and security everywhere. It is no exaggeration to describe the position of women as an apartheid, but it is not limited to one country or historical period. For this ancient and continuing wrong is millennial in duration and global in reach. Only radical solutions can even scratch its surface. However, the prize is a great one: the collateral benefits to peace, prosperity, sustainability and general human happiness are potentially enormous. All this because we are all interconnected and all men are of women too.

Mia Couto Sebastiao Salgado. Africa

Mia Couto Sebastiao Salgado. Africa

Sebastiao Salgado is one the most respected photojournalists working today, his reputation forged by decades of dedication and powerful black-and-white images of dispossessed and distressed people taken in places where most wouldn't dare to go. Although he has photographed throughout South America and around the globe, his work most heavily concentrates on Africa, where he has shot more than 40 reportage works over a period of 30 years. From the Dinka tribes in Sudan and the Himba in Namibia to gorillas and volcanoes in the lakes region to displaced peoples throughout the continent, Salgado shows us all facets of African life today. Whether he's documenting refugees or vast landscapes, Salgado knows exactly how to grab the essence of a moment so that when one sees his images one is involuntarily drawn into them. His images artfully teach us the disastrous effects of war, poverty, disease, and hostile climatic conditions. This book brings together Salgado's photos of Africa in three parts. The first concentrates on the southern part of the continent (Mozambique, Malawi, Angola, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia), the second on the Great Lakes region (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya), and the third on the Sub-Saharan region (Burkina Faso, Mali, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Mauritania, Senegal, Ethiopia).

If Only They Didn't Speak English: Notes from Trump's America

If Only They Didn't Speak English: Notes from Trump's America

As the BBC’s North America Editor, Jon Sopel has had a pretty busy time of it lately. In the 18 months it’s taken for a reality star to go from laughingstock to leader of the free world, Jon has traveled the length and breadth of the United States, experiencing it from a perspective that most of us could only dream of: he has flown aboard Air Force One, interviewed President Obama and has even been described as "a beauty" by none other than Donald Trump. Reflecting on his journey across the continent to cover the most turbulent race in recent history, Jon Sopel lifts a lid on the seething resentments, profound anxieties and sheer rage that found its embodiment in a brash, unpredictable and seemingly unstoppable figure. In this fascinating, insightful portrait of American life and politics, Jon sets out to answer the rest of the world's questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs.

The Fall of the House of Fifa

The Fall of the House of Fifa

Fifa was founded in 1904 to unite the football-playing world, its first congress stating that 'no person should be allowed to arrange matches for personal profit'. A little over a century later, a judge in a Brooklyn courtroom called Fifa a 'Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organisation (RIC O) enterprise' - a term originally coined for the mafia. As dazzling World Cups captivated billions around the world Fifa became a commercial magnet, money pouring into its coffers. Its earnest foundations began to crumble as those entrusted with the sport wanted their share. For forty years Joao Havelange and then Sepp Blatter presided over a Fifa now plagued with scandal - dawn raids, FBI investigations, allegations of money laundering, industrialscale bribery, racketeering, tax evasion, vote-buying and theft that now came to define the organisation whose purpose is to foster international cooperation and nurture the spirit of this simple, beautiful game. David Conn, football's most respected investigative journalist, chronicles the extraordinary history and staggering scale of corruption, paints revealing portraits of the men at the centre of Fifa - the power brokers, the indicted, the legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini - and puts the allegations to Blatter himself in an extended interview. The Fall of the House of Fifa is the definitive story of Fifa's rise and the most spectacular fall sport has ever seen.

Russian Decorative Arts

Russian Decorative Arts

An informative guide to Russian Decorative Arts and their historical context. Covers a wide range of crafts including Faberg?, jewelry, woodwork, hardstone, glass and porcelain, as well as precious metal. Explores pre-Revolutionary Russia, discussing various artifacts of the Tsarist era as far back as the 16th and 17th centuries with particular focus on the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Ideal for both novice and established collectors of the field. Russia's last great Imperial celebration took place at the Winter Palace in St Petersburg with the lavish ball of 1913 celebrating 300 years of Romanov rule. The finest gowns, jewels, snuff boxes, and banqueting tableware of the Tsarist era were sumptuously displayed then for the last time. The outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 brought such opulence to an end. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians have been eager to repatriate their lost heritage. Works by jewelers and silversmiths to the Tsars are particularly sought after today as status symbols, with the market for pre-Revolutionary decorative arts touching a wide audience - from the curators at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, to the predawn bargain hunters at the Paris flea markets. Russian Decorative Arts offers an introductory guide to porcelain, glass, silver, Tula work and other base metals, orders and decorations, jewelry, objects of virtue, Faberge, lapidary, woodwork and walrus ivory.

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Banaras has been for over two and a half thousand years the pre-eminent sacred city of the Hindus. They believe that to bathe in thу holy river Ganges here is to be cleansed of sin, and that to die in Banaras is to win salvation. It is this transcendental promise that chiefly underlies the lasting hold of Banaras on the teeming Hindu imagination and explains its cardinal position on the cultural map of India. The power of faith has shaped Banaras as an urban amalgam with a unique and subtle flavour - as a citadel of the Hindu tradition, as a seat of ancient learning, as a hive of commerce and crafts, and as theatre of the inimitable Banarasi way of life, with its accent on leisure and gaiety.This book seeks to explain the extraordinary synthsis that is Banaras, and to reveal the reach meaning that lies behind commonplace sights and everyday images. Fifty splendid photographs present the inexhaustible panorama of the ghats and images steeped in the daily life of Banaras.Издательство: Lustre Press

Jan Morris Locations

Jan Morris Locations

From San Jacinto Plaza in El Paso, to nostalgic Oslo, to Norfolk Island, home of the Boobook Owl, Locations is an honest and insightful look at thirteen unique places from the woman who has, in her own words, been earning her living "by perpetual wandering and writing" for nearly forty years. One of the world's preeminent travel writers, Jan Morris is the author of a number of highly acclaimed volumes. And now, in Locations, she presents yet another collection of provocative essays on destinations as varied as Paris and Oslo, West Point and Chicago.These pieces reveal not so much how a place looks, feels, or sounds, but Morris's own response to a particular moment, her appreciation of history's causes and effects, her sharp eye for a telling detail, and her ability to find the meaning in a chance encounter. In Vermont, ("the receptacle of the symptoms Romantics like to identify as American Innocence") she retells with delight how, like the keys to a city, she was given the gift of a piece of lead piping from which the stallion Justin Morgan (the father of the breed of Morgan horses) had drunk. She finds Oaxaca (pronounced like "wa-HA-ka") colored violently by its Indianness, where one can hear the arcane languages of the Mixtec, Zapotec, and Ixcatec, and, five thousand feet above sea level, get a benign and hallucinatory effect of breathiness and romance. Morris captures what she calls the pungency of the Tex-Mex frontier, where one can not only find clans (who have lived the...

Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free

Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free

When the San Jose mine collapsed outside of Copiapo, Chile, in August 2010, it trapped thirty-three miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days. The entire world watched what transpired above-ground during the grueling and protracted rescue, but the saga of the miners' experiences below the Earth's surface - and the lives that led them there - has never been heard until now. For Deep Down Dark, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hector Tobar received exclusive access to the miners and their tales. These thirty-three men came to think of the mine, a cavern inflicting constant and thundering aural torment, as a kind of coffin, and as a church where they sought redemption through prayer. Even while still buried, they all agreed that if by some miracle any of them escaped alive, they would share their story only collectively. Hector Tobar was the person they chose to hear, and now to tell, that story. The result is a masterwork or narrative journalism - a riveting, at times shocking, emotionally textured account of a singular human event. Deep Down Dark brings to haunting, tactile life the experience of being imprisoned inside a mountain of stone, the horror of being slowly consumed by hunger, and the spiritual and mystical elements that surrounded working in such a dangerous place. In its stirring final chapters, it captures the profound way in which the lives of everyone involved in the disaster were forever changed.
