The art of Samuel Palmer is essentially a discovery of the 20th century. Although he exhibited widely during his lifetime, and found buyers for some of his watercolours and etchings, it was not until the retrospective exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1926 that the general public were able to enter the uniquely personal world of Palmer's early years at Shoreham. Since then, his influence on a generation of English painters including Nash, Sutherland, John Piper, and F.L. Griggs, the publications of Geoffrey Grigson, Raymond Lister and others, have made him one of the most popular of English artists. The collection of paintings, drawings, watercolours, and etchings by Samuel Palmer in the Ashmolean Museum is the most important in the world. It is especially rich in the early works of the Shoreham period, from c. 1824 to 1835, notably the haunting self portrait and the unique group of six sepia drawings of 1825, which represent the 'visionary landscape' at its most intense.

The Reading for Real Handbook was very well received by both teachers and literacy specialists when it was published in 1992. Since its first publication there have been significant changes in the field of 'reading', not least of which has been governmental demands for higher standards in reading and the resultant National Literacy Strategy (NLS). As well as providing invaluable help for teachers struggling with the National Literacy Strategy and the Literacy Hour, several other new topics of interest are also addressed, including teaching fiction/non-fiction inside and outside the Literacy Hour, integrating reading, writing and spelling work, involving parents, assessment and working with slower readers.

It contains advice both for teachers already committed to a storybook approach, and for those who make use of a scheme or schemes but wish to include a greater use of stories.

An honest lawyer, a Czech hand model, and a box of mysterious Christmas ornaments--each plays a part in Colin Harrison's compelling new intrigue

George Young never thought of himself as a detective, but that's pretty much his vocation--an attorney at a top insurance firm, it's his job to pin down suspicious claims. But Mrs. Corbett, the rich, eccentric wife of the firm's founder, has it in mind to put George's skills to a peculiar assignment. With only a few months left to live, her one desire is to know the true circumstance of her son Roger's violent death. George's investigation leads him to Roger's mistress, a cagey Czech hand model named Eliska, who can cast a seductive spell simply by removing her gloves.

Did Eliska's motives for latching on to Roger get him killed? Or did some of her shadowy and dangerous little friends take care of the job? And why were there boxes and boxes of Christmas ornaments in the dead man's apartment? George will have to take a few chances of his own if he wants to get to the bottom of Roger's death for Mrs. Corbett.

Set against a volatile and vividly drawn Manhattan, "Risk "is prime Colin Harrison.""

But when his seductive, all-American neighbour Jennifer Mehraz - wife of the suave but shadowy young businessman Ahmed Mehraz - desperately pleads for his help, Paul is catapulted into Manhattan's dangerous underworld. Behind its glamourous façade, this city is a dark and troubling place where anything can be bought for a high enough price...

American Culture in the 1990s (Paperback): Colin Harrison American Culture in the 1990s (Paperback)
Colin Harrison
R603 Discovery Miles 6 030 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

American Culture in the 1990s focuses on the dramatic cultural transformations of the last decade of the millennium. Lodged between the fall of Communism and the outbreak of the War on Terror, the 1990s was witness to America's expanding influence across the world but also a period of anxiety and social conflict. National traumas such as the Los Angeles riots, the Oklahoma City bombing and the impeachment of President Clinton lend an apocalyptic air to the decade, but the book looks beyond this to a wider context to identify new voices emerging in the nation. This is one of the first attempts to bring together developments taking place across a range of different fields: from Microsoft to the Internet, from blank fiction to gangsta rap, from abject art to new independent cinema, and from postfeminism to posthumanism. Students of American culture and general readers will find this a lively and illuminating introduction to a complex and immensely varied decade. Key Features *3 case studies per chapter featuring key texts, genres, writers and artists *Chronology of 1990s American Culture *Bibliographies for each chapter *18 black and white illustrations

This important book is the first to explore the fascination of the Pre-Raphaelite painters with Italy: its landscape, art and culture. Covering the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the broadest sense, from its foundation in 1848 to the second generation (including Burne-Jones and Crane), it also includes the works of a group of English artists known as the Etruscans, who were followers of the Italian painter Giovanni Costa. Ruskin, whose awareness of Italy was both imaginative and visceral and who made numerous trips to Italy throughout his life, emerges as a key influence on the relationship of the Pre-Raphaelite painters to Italian culture. In addition to his writings, including the monumental Stones of Venice, Ruskin's own drawings provide a personal record of his engagement with the places he visited. Featuring full-colour illustrations of the 138 paintings in the exhibition, including works in private collections not previously reproduced, The Pre-Raphaelites and Italy examines the relationship of the Pre-Raphaelite brothers to Italy and to each other in a fresh and original way and will be essential reading for all students of 19th-century art and culture.

Jin Li is a beautiful, driven young woman running a dangerous little operation. Manhattan corporations hire her for a simple but delicate task: to shred and destroy the reams of highly classified documents. But they don't know that she and her brother, Chen, have been using their discarded secrets to game the international markets, making a pile of cash. When someone at the Good Pharma corporation, whose stock is plummeting, uncovers the scheme, two of Jin Li's workers die a grisly death, and Jin is on the run. Her brother extorts Jin's old flame, Ray Grant--an ex-firefighter with a disturbing 9/11 past--to track her down. He'll have to comb every strata of New York, from the brutal Mexican mafia to the greed-fueled penthouse billionaires of Wall Street, to find her.
An intricate tale of avarice, corruption, and power, Colin Harrison's masterful new thriller is a "brilliantly executed novel" ("The Baltimore Sun").

Bill Wyeth is a rising real estate attorney living the lofty heights of success. Then a tragic accident claims everything he has: his family, his fortune, his career. But this is Manhattan, and Bill has much further to fall. His downward spiral lands him at the table of Allison Sparks, the dangerously alluring owner of a midtown steakhouse. She needs a personal favor of him--to engineer a midnight trade-off in a shady multimillion-dollar real estate deal. For a man with nothing left to lose, the set-up is too lucrative to refuse, and like Allison, too forbidden to resist. But her favor draws him deeper into a web of sex, deception, and murder--and to a secret place at the back of her restaurant, the Havana Room, where a man might find both evil and redemption. "The Havana Room" is a great New York thriller from a modern master of the genre.

George Young, a world-weary insurance lawyer in New York City, has taken his fair share of knocks and bruises in the business of credit, bankruptcy, and fraud cases. One Friday he receives an unusual request from the elderly and ailing widow of Wilson Corbett, the founder of the firm George has worked for all his life. At first it seems one more unwanted call on his time, but loyalty to his former boss won't let him ignore it, for the elderly Mrs Corbett has recently lost her son and she wants the truth about his fatal accident. A former high-flier, Roger Corbett's career - and marriage - had fallen apart in the credit crunch, costing him millions. But what was written on the piece of paper which distracted him seconds before he was run down by a garbage truck out side a New York bar? Roger's new girlfriend, a mysterious Czech model with dubious Russian connections, knows more about his last moments than she's letting on, everyone is warning him off, while Mrs Corbett's reasons for choosing George for this last personal favor remain frustratingly unclear.
