ABEYASEKERE, Susan. Jakarta : A History. Singapore [et al] : Oxford University Press, 1987. Pp (4),[v]-xvii,(3),[3]-280,(2),+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated grey paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in blue, orange, pale yellow, white and black.

"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country." (from the back cover).

19 AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.) Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements and Problems of Italian Design. First Edition in dustjacket
Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1972, ISBN:0870703843 
AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972).

With 520 illustrations (124 in color). 4to, white paper covered boards, black lettering to spine, in a printed glassine dustjacket with fivepieces of cut-out objects illustrative of Italian design inserted into jac ket as issued. "During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."
