ABOUL-ENEIN, Youssef and Basil ABOUL-ENEIN. The Secret War for the Middle East : The Influence of Axis and Allied Intelligence Operations during WorldWar II. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2013). First Printin g. Pp. (6),vii-xxiii,(1),1-263,(1). 8vo, red paper-covered spine with off-white patterned paper-covered boards, silver lettering to spine. Foreword byEd Mornston. "Although often overlooked in studies of World War II, the Mi ddle East was actually a key theater for the Allies. Though the threat of direct Axis invasion by Rommel's Afrika Corps never materialized beyond the Egyptian Western Desert, this did not limit the Axis from probing the Middle East and cultivating potential collaborators and sympathizers. 'The Secret War for the Middle East' explores the infusion of the political language of anti-Semitism, nationalism, fascism, and Marxism that was among the ideological by-products of Axis and Allied intervention in the Arab world. The status of the British-dominated Middle East was tailor-made for exploitation by Axis intelligence and propaganda. German and Italian intelligence efforts fueled anti-British resentments; their influence shaped the course of Arab nationalist sentiments throughout the Middle East. These actions left an indelible mark on the sociopolitical evolution of the modern states of the Middle East, and their effects continue to be felt today. A relevant parallel to the pan-Arab cause was Hitler's attempt to bring ethnic Germans into the fold of a greater German state. In theory, as the Sudeten German stood on par with the Carpathian German, so, too, according to doctrinal theory, did the Yemeni stand in union with the Syrian in the imagination of thoseespousing pan-Arabism. As historic evidence demonstrates, this very common ality proved to be a major factor in the development of relations between Arab and fascist leaders. The Arab nationalist movement amounted to little more than a shapeless, fragmented counter-position to British imperialism, imported to the Arab East via Berlin for Nazi aspirations." - from the dustjacket.

If a country as limitless as this can ever be said to have posed for its portrait, certainly the photographer behind the camera wasAnsel Adams. And now he has given us this book. Here, in his prodigiously illustrated autobiography, completed just prior to his death in 1984, is Adams' testament of a life of dedication, adventure, achievement, remarkable friendships, plainspoken wisdom, and a concern for man and nature. It is a memoir of times spent with Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Imogen Cunningham, Edwin Land, and so many more in the pantheon of the art and photography world. Here, not only in hisown words but also in photographs the world over (and many others never be fore pbulished), this extraordinary man steps forward to share with us his love of music, the beauty of the wilderness, loyalties and dreams, and thatclear-eyed vision that saw beyond the mountains the heart of America." - f rom the dustjacket.

ADAMS, Robert. Why People Photograph : Selected Essays and Reviews. (New York): Aperture, (1994). First Printing. Pp. (14),13-186,(4). Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, white cloth spine with white paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "'Why People Photograph' is a book by a professional photographer about the relationship of art and life. In 1981 Robert Adams published a volume of essay entitled 'Beauty in Photography', in which hesuggested that art is too important to confuse with interior decoration or an investment opportunity. Its real use, he contended, is to affirm meanin g and thus 'to keep intact an affection for life'. 'Why People Photograph' gathers a selection of Adams's writing since then. His subjects vary, but again he questions accepted prejudice, this time not only the view that art is trivial but that artists are separate. He demonstrates that many understand themselves to be bound to the world by complex and important obligations. Adams's writing is free of academic jargon. Readers will also appreciatehis attention to common experience (he talks about trying to earn an incom e), his employment of the unorthodox (one essay concerns dogs and photography), and above all his conviction that art matters." - from the dustjacket.Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 35.00

ADAS, Michael. Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, (1979). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxvii,(3),3-243,(1). With a few illustrations in the text. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine.

A volume in the Studies in Comparative World History series.

Michael Adas (b. February 4, 1943, Detroit, Michigan).

"This study provides new approaches to the writing of comparative history and to the analysis of social protest movements, by combining five case studies with other evidence on millennial movements, Michael Adas constructs a framework for the study of the relationship between millenarian expectations, prophetic leaders, and violent social protest.

The participants in these rebellions sought to change unacceptable sociocultural systems by extralegal means rather than by constitutional methods, by force rather than by reform, withdrawal, or passive resistance. Each of the groups mounted a rebellion aimed at the overthrow not only of the political regime but also of the existing sociocultural order. The author views these rebellions from the perspectives of both the colonizer incumbents and the participants themselves. He analyzes the causes which give rise to these movements of protest gainstst the changes and dislocations engendered by European conquest and colonization of diverse societies in Africa, Asia, and Oceania. He moves from an examination of causation to a consideration of the factors that influenced the mode of protest that was adopted and he discusses the techniques of organization, ritual, and magic that were used to offset European technological superiority. He pays special attention to the careers of the prophets who played central roles in these movements and to the importance of their millenarian visions as catalysts of protests. The work concludes with a discussion of the patterns displayed by the actual revolts, the campaigns of repression launched by the Europeans, and the historical legacy of these movements.

The five rebellions that Michael Adas examines in this study are: the revolt led by Prince Dipanagara in the Netnerlands East Indies (1825-1830), the Pai Maire or Hau Hau movement of the Maoris of New Zealand (1864-c. 1867), the Birsa disturbance among the Mundas of Chota Nagpur in east-central India (1890-1900), the Maji Maji rebellions in German East Africa (1905-1906), and the Saya San uprisings in Burma (1930-1932)."

AGRICOLA, Johann Friedrich. Introduction to the Art of Singing by Johann Friedrich Agricola. Translated and edited by Julianne C. Baird. (Cambridge) :Cambridge University Press, (1995). First Edition. Pp (8),ix,(1),1-298. 8v o, green cloth, silver lettering to spine. In the Cambridge Musical Texts and Monographs series. "Johann Friedric Agricola published his Introduction to the Art of Singing in Germany in 1757. It brought to a German readerships the 1723 treatise of the Italian singing teacher and castrato, Tosi, to which Agricola added his own running commentary. The Introduction was recognized as invaluable not only for teachers and their pupils but also for advanced singers and professionals. Charles Burney, for example, described it as 'the best book on the subject in German' and hailed the author as 'the best singing master in Germany.' This present edition, translated with introduction and annotations by the celebrated singer Julianne Baird, makes Agricola's work available for the first time in English. Tosi's work was the first basic treatise on singing: it codified important aesthetic principles and gave practical directions for the singers of his time. Agricola, a pupil of J.S. Bach, addressed the style of singing at the court of Frederick the Great, and brought Tosi's work up-to-date. His commentaries are so extensive that the Introduction stands on its own as an important document in the history of performance practice." Very good in dustjacket. 45.00

ALEXANDER, Bruce K. The Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (12),[1]-470,(6), + 2 p. of colour plates. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. The author is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. "Scientific medicine has failed to bring addiction under control. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict.Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its pre valence differs dramatically between societies. [...] This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a failing civilisation are also built into today's globalising free-market society. [...] The book [also] argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and poltiical one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, politicians, and priests, who have served with such dedication, out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social preoject. The project is to reshape society with enough forces and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life." - from the dustjacket.

Poul-Gerhard Andersen (b. December 17, 1904, Varde - d. June 5, 1980, Copenhagen).

"A concise but comprehensive exposition of the traditions of European organ building from the Middle Ages to the present century, this work by distinguished Danish organ builder now appears for the first time in English, translated by Dr. Joanne Curnutt. Its technico-aesthetic approach to the subject, as seen from the standpoint of a professional organ builder of the northern school will enhance its interest not only for organists and organ students, but also for the connoisseur and for all who are concerned or seriously interested in the practice and theory of the organ builder's art. There is an abundance of organ specifications, supplemented by 82 full page illustrations including new plate to show the important achievements of organ building since 1956." (from the dj).
