Reasoning Only! Scottish Office , , , Mathews , , , Between the third and sixth centuries, the ancient gods, goddesses, and heroes who had populated the imagination of humankind for a millennium were replaced by a new imagery of Christ and his saints. Thomas Mathews explores the many different, often surprising, artistic images and religious interpretations of Christ during this period. Suggesting that Christian images borrow from the rival imagery of the ancient gods, Mathews makes it possible to appreciate hitherto neglected aspects of Christ in the new art: Christ as magician, Christ as philosopher, Christ as androgynous.

The Creolization of American Culture examines the artworks, letters, sketchbooks, music collection, and biography of the painter William Sidney Mount as a lens through which to see the multiethnic antebellum world that gave birth to blackface minstrelsy. As a young man living in the multiethnic working-class community of New York's Lower East Side, Mount took part in the black-white musical interchange his paintings depict. An avid musician and tune collector as well as an artist, he was the among the first to depict vernacular fiddlers, banjo players, and dancers precisely and sympathetically.
His close observations and meticulous renderings provide rich evidence of performance techniques and class-inflected paths of musical apprenticeship that connected white and black practitioners. Looking closely at the bodies and instruments Mount depicts in his paintings as well as other ephemera, Christopher J. Smith traces the performance practices of African American and Anglo-European music-and- dance traditions while recovering the sounds of that world.
The "Africanization" of Anglo-Celtic tunes created minstrelsy's musical "creole synthesis," a body of melodic and rhythmic vocabularies, repertoires, tunes, and musical techniques that became the foundation of American popular music. Reading Mount's renderings of black and white musicians against a background of historical sites and practices of cross-racial interaction, Smith offers a sophisticated interrogation and reinterpretation of minstrelsy, significantly broadening historical views of black-white musical exchange.

I was simply a kid, considered 'unteachable' by teachers, 'unreachable' by child psychologists, and 'unbearable' by my own family.

Born to be Queen, Sylvie Krin , , X, Freedom: the story of my second life, Malika Oufkir, Linda Coverdale , , , In Freedom, Malika Oufkir reflects on her life before her cruel incarceration and the dramatic change in the world she discovered when she emerged. Malika's childhood was a storybook fantasy - reared in the palace alongside the king's daughter, she enjoyed unfathomable luxury and privilege.
This came at the sole discretion of the monarch, whose power was absolute and whose word was law. In , the nightmare began: her father was summarily executed for attempting to assassinate the despot, and she was locked away with her mother and siblings, who ranged in age from nineteen to three years old. After a harrowing escape, Malika and her family returned to reclaim their lost lives, only to find the world almost unrecognizable.
Following more years of house arrest, surveillance, and harassment, Malika joined several of her siblings in Paris, to make a new start with her beloved husband Eric. She writes candidly, with humor and accuracy, about the world we take for granted - the excesses of shopping malls and the gluttony of our food-fetishizing culture; the machinations of everyday bureaucracy; the flavor-of-the-month aspects of celebrity, including her own.
Initially, every action was fraught for her; from navigating an ATM to asking directions of a policeman, from ordering in a restaurant to falling in love. But she comes to appreciate her own strengths. Americas favorite crypto-zoological hominid is hilariously recast as the modern-day everyman, struggling with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, pop culture, and philosophical quandaries Me once believe in good.
