Werner, Frank R.
This work contains text in English and German. Julia Bolles-Wilson and Peter L Wilson have built a large number of striking, thoroughly detailed cultural and commercial buildings in recent years, all sharing the characteristic that they stubbornly resist superficial stylistic categorisation. Their buildings are articulated and positioned in an unmistakable way in their respective urban spaces, thanks to pointed breaks with rational space configurations, sculptural shapes for architectural silhouettes and the use of polychrome surfaces. 59pp.

Rosiek, Jan
This is a comprehensive interpretation of Paul de Man's theoretical itinerary prior to his emergence as the doyen of deconstruction in America. The book includes sections on Hegelian poetics, Heidegger's thought, and romanticism, the main areas in which de Man carried out his critical work before 1970. His encounters with dialectical negations in Mallarme and Blanchot, Heidegger's existential analytic poetics of Being, the antagonism of symbol and allegory in Benjamin, and Derrida's deconstruction of Rousseau all present opportunities for tracing the figures which, in various guises, remained crucial in de Man's Theory: being inaccessible, intention unfulfillable, truth unattainable - in brief, figures of failure. 247pp. N.B. Corners bumped. Spine slightly scuffed.

Symons, Caroline
The Gay Games is an important piece of new social history, examining one of the largest sporting, cultural and human rights events in the world. Since their inception in 1980, the Gay Games have developed into a multi-million dollar mega-event, engaging people from all continents, while the international Gay Games movement has become one of the largest and most significant international institutions for gay and lesbian people. Drawing on detailed archival research, oral history and participant observation techniques, and informed by critical feminist theory and queer theory, this book offers the first comprehensive history of the Gay Games from 1980 through to the Chicago games of 2006. It explores the significance of the Games in the context of broader currents of gay and lesbian history, and addresses a wide range of key contemporary themes within sports studies, including the cultural politics of sport, the politics of difference and identity, and the rise of sporting mega-events. This book is important reading for any serious student of international sport or gender and sexuality studies.

Benjamin, Andrew
Best known for his work The Postmodern Condition , Jean-Francois Lyotard is one of the leading figures in contemporary French philosophy. This is the first collection of articles to offer an estimation and critique of his work. While the various chapters deal with different aspects of Lyotard's writings, they are all concerned with the question of judgement. The importance to Lyotard of judgement, and how it is to be judged, is a recurrent theme throughout the entire range of his work. It is particularly evident in his continuing engagement with the work of Kant. Lyotard's own essay, Sensus Communis , which opens this volume, investigates through Kant the presuppositions of judgement. Other essays variously consider how in his writings Lyotard has rendered problematic existing forms of aesthetic, ethical, legal and political judgement. Judging Lyotard is an important collection that will re-introduce Lyotard to English-speaking audiences. 211pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Crease to spine.
