In assembling these narratives from the unwritten literature of this area, Dr. Radin has drawn upon the so-called true Negro tribes of west Agfrica, the Bantu-speaking tribes of central, east, and south Africa, the half-Hamites of the Nile headwaters, and the Bushmen and Hottentots of the extreme south and south-west. Dr. Radin emphasizes that theirs is possibly the most sophisticated of all aboriginal literatures, though it has not become so well known as the sculpture of native Africa, which during the past fifty years has so strongly influenced the art of the contemporary western world."

25 AGRICOLA, Johann Friedrich BAIRD, Julianne C. , (ed.) Introduction to the Art of Singing by Johann Friedrich Agricola. First Edition in dustjacket.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1995, ISBN:052145428X 
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

Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation.

Illustrated, sometimes in colour. Large 8vo, illustrated blue and green card covers with white spine, yellow and white lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine, french flaps.A volume in the McGill-Queen's/Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation Studies in Art History series. "During periods of close collaboration, championed by figures like John Ruskin and William Morris, architecture and craft were referred to as 'the allied arts'. By the mid-twentieth century, however, it was more common for the two disciplines to be considered distinct professional fields, with architecture having little to do with studio craft. 'The Allied Arts' investigates the history of the complex relationship between craft and architecture by examining their intersection in Canadian public buildings. Sandra Alfoldy explains the challenges facing the development of public craft and documents the largely ignored public craft commissions of the post-war era. The book highlights theg global concerns of material, scale, form, ornament, and identity shared by architects and craftspeople. It alsostudies the ways in which the allied arts are mediated by institutions and the fragility of craft commissions that were once considered an integral p art of the built environment. Considering a wide range of craftspeople, materials, and forms -- from the ceramics of Jack Sures and Jordi Bonet to thetextile work of Mariette Rousseau-Vermette and Carole Sabiston -- Alfoldy celebrates the successes of architectural craftsmanship, developing ideas about the complex relationship between architecture and craft that reach well beyond national boundaries." - from the rear cover.
