|This series is a unique longitudinal study into the impact of what is considered one of the most important environmental issues of our times - the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest during the 1980s. Filming on the series began in 1980 and continued throughout the decade. Each programme was filmed in a different part of the Amazon region and looks in depth at a single issue by following how it affects a single person.|
In the UK, the series initially was five one hour films, but later additional films were added. Also note that several versions were made for alternate markets and that these are often quite different. For example, Ashes of the Forest was one 52 minute programme in the UK series but was made as a two part documentary for the American series. The series was originally broadcast in 1984 and then an updated version was broadcast in 1990.

Joan Miró’s paintings are among the most widely recognized of any modern artist,reproduced everywhere from books to T-shirts to posters. While he is most often seen as a surrealist or a postwar abstract painter, terms he rejected, this book brings new insights into Miró’s work by framing it in the context of the turbulent times in which he lived.
Miró’s contemporary Picasso left Spain, promising never to return under a Fascist government. In contrast, Miró chose internal exile, removing himself to the island of Mallorca, a decision that has led to him being viewed as a less political artist. This book challenges that impression by focusing on Miró’s politically engaged works, from the rural, anarchist tradition and strong Catalan nationalism reflected in early paintings like The Farm and Head of a Catalan Peasant to the triptych The Hope of a Condemned Man (1974) through which he publicly declared his opposition to Franco.
Drawing on new scholarship from an international group of experts, the book accompanies the first exhibition in nearly half a century to show work from throughout Miró’s career. It sheds new light on the life and achievements of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

The Transfiguration of the Commonplace

|Arthur C. Danto argues that recent developments in the art world, in particular the production of works of art that cannot be told from ordinary things, make urgent the need for a new theory of art and make plain the factors such a theory can and cannot involve. In the course of constructing such a theory, he seeks to demonstrate the relationship between philosophy and art, as well as the connections that hold between art and social institutions and art history.|
The book distinguishes what belongs to artistic theory from what has traditionally been confused with it, namely aesthetic theory and offers as well a systematic account of metaphor, expression, and style, together with an original account of artistic representation. A wealth of examples, drawn especially from recent and contemporary art, illuminate the argument.

Bilingualism: Beyond Basic Principles
Multilingual Matters LTD 2003
Cena: 2.90 €
Jazyk: česky ISBN - 1-85359-625-6, (stav A), brož.
|The publication of Hugo Baetens Beardsmore s book Bilingualism: Basic Principles by Multilingual Matters in 1982 coincided with an unprecedented upsurge of interest in bilingualism. A major reason for this was the acknowledgement that bilingualism is far more common than was previously thought, and perhaps even the norm. The number of bilinguals at the turn of the third millennium is probably greater than ever before and will continue to grow as a result of the combined forces of globalisation, automatisation, increased mobility and migration, and modernisation of foreign language teaching. The contributions in this book prove that, given the right conditions, bilingualism can confer distinct benefits like intellectual, psychological, social, cultural and economic improvement on the individual. The papers in this volume have been written by leading scholars in the field of bilingualism and deal with individual bilingualism, societal and educational phenomena, addressing issues such as bilingual usage, acquisition, teaching, and language planning and policy. The volume s major asset lies in its diversity, not only in depth of investigation and in topical variety but also in the range of languages and geographical regions covered. Another important feature of the volume is its multidisciplinary perspective. Among the contributors are linguists, sociologists, psychologists and sociolinguists.|

|Rozsiahly, sčasti životopisný román o osudoch osirelého chlapca, ktorý sa už od útlej mladosti musí prebíjať životom, kým sa z neho stane slávny spisovateľ. Autor pravdivo a presvedčivo vykreslil život a typy drobných kapitalistickou spoločnosťou utláčaných ľudí. Pestrý dej, skvelé rozprávačské umenie, všetko prežarujúci teplý ľudský cit, hlboká mravnosť, srdečný humor - i keď neraz zo slzami v očiach, jas a životný optimizmus - v tom je sila, príťažlivosť i nesmrteľnosť tohto románu.|
