Editor Tilden, Jill
This volume explores the rich diversity of Asian art. The range of subjects examined includes silk in China under the Northern Song, Indonesian royal and ethnic gold, Islamic arhcitecture in the Deccan, a Persian manuscript of Sa'di's "Gulistan", Khmer sculpture and Mughal red-ground "grotesque" carpets. It highlights the complex interactions of Far and Near Eastern traditions as artistic and religious ideas were transmitted first along the Silk Road, and then as a result of the extensive conquests of Genghis Khan and Timur. The book forms part of the "Hali Annual" series which presents essays on Asian art.198pp.Plus adverts. N.B. Scuff mark to front D/J.

Thirkell, Fred; Scullion, Bob
This award-winning biography by respected postcard historians Fred Thirkell and Bob Scullion pays tribute to photographer Frank Gowen, one of British Columbia's greatest artistic eyes. The book focuses on the life and selected works of Frank Gowen, whose images and name will always be synonymous with the photographic history of Greater Vancouver. Gowen came to Vancouver during the First World War and established himself as "the Stanley Park photographer". Although he travelled throughout British Columbia, many of his finest images are from the parks, streets, and historic sites of the Lower Mainland. Gowen's Greater Vancouver extended from White Rock to the Sunshine Coast, as he explored the playgrounds, edifices, and landmarks of a vibrant West Coast community. 176pp.

Black, Georgina Dopico
In "Perfect Wives, Other Women", Georgina Dopico Black examines the role played by women's bodies - specifically the bodies of wives - in Spain and Spanish America during the Inquisition. In her quest to show how both the body and soul of the married woman became the site of anxious inquiry, Dopico Black mines a variety of Golden Age texts for instances in which the era's persistent preoccupation with racial, religious, and cultural otherness was reflected in the depiction of women. Subject to the scrutiny of a remarkable array of gazes-inquisitors, theologians, religious reformers, confessors, poets, playwrights, and, not least among them, husbands - the bodies of perfect and imperfect wives elicited diverse readings.Dopico Black reveals how imperialism, the Inquisition, inflation, and economic decline each contributed to a correspondence between the meanings of these human bodies and 'other' bodies, such as those of the Jew, the Moor, the Lutheran, the degenerate, and whoever else departed from a recognised norm. The body of the wife, in other words, became associated with categories separate from anatomy, reflecting the particular hermeneutics employed during the Inquisition regarding the surveillance of otherness. Dopico Black's compelling argument will engage students of Spanish and Spanish American history and literature, gender studies, women's studies, social psychology and cultural studies. 307pp. N.B. Black ink mark across bottom foredge of pages. Content unaffected.
