, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Dubai and Frankfurt. Over the course of hundreds of meetings with artists, musicians, designers and authors, they collected enough prints, books, photographs, audio interviews and notes to fill an encyclopedia.
The comparatively slim Bastard, which comes in at just under 400 pages, offers a portfolio from around the world. In the course of collecting it, Christian Ernst found himself coming around to this globalization thing: "Everyone is afraid of standardization.
When everyone has the same design books does that mean young designers everywhere will use the same design? No--people are individual and influenced in different ways. They're simply different, and that was definitely a relief to discover " Bastard has been designed in more than 50 unique typefaces created by typographers all over the world.
A selection of those fonts, a musical sound track and 50 high-resolution images are all included on the enclosed DVD(less)

"This is a first-ever history of art written in the country, which discusses artistic forms and personal identities of artists as a discourse on the modern and contemporary art of Pakistan. The first two chapters deal with the subcontinental art scene against the background of the decay of Mughal painting, the emergence of company painting and, finally, the triumph of the western style of Raj painting, and reaction against it from Abanindranath Tagore and Chughtai.
The author argues that Pakistani art is a distinct facet of the Muslim heritage of the subcontinent. The works of Zubeida Agha, Shakir Ali, and other pioneers of modern art, have been analysed in detail,(less)
It would be like hearing Christopher Columbus on the New World.Hawking presents a series of seven lec-tures--covering everything from big bang to black holes to string theory--that capture not only the brilliance of Hawking's mind but his characteristic wit as well.
Of his research on black holes, which absorbed him for more than a decade, he says, "It might seem a bit like looking for a black cat in a coal cellar."Hawking begins with a history of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle's determination that the Earth is round to Hubble's discovery, over 2000 years later, that the universe is epanding.
Using that as a launching pad, he eplores the reaches of modern physics, including theories(less)

The book highlights the role peace organisations play in providing alternatives to dominant discourses of militarism. It draws on unique empirical material, including 150 interviews with leaders, participants and key actors involved in civil society peace work in(less)

Indeed, the world is increasingly taken to be divided between religions (or 'cultures' or 'civilizations'), ignoring the relevance of other ways in which people see themselves through class, gender, profession, language, literature, science, music, morals or politics, and denying the real possibilities of reasoned choices. In Identity and Violence he overturns such stereotypes as the 'the monolithic Middle East' or 'the Western Mind'.
Through his penetrating investigation of such subjects as multiculturalism, fundamentalism, terrorism and globalization, he brings out the need for a clear-headed understanding of human freedom and a constructive(less)
