Editorial Review

*****

Empires--vast states of territories and peoples united by force and ambition--have dominated the political landscape for more than two millennia. Empires in World History departs from conventional European and nation-centered perspectives to take a remarkable look at how empires relied on diversity to shape the global order. Beginning with ancient Rome and China and continuing across Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa, Jane Burbank and Frederick Cooper examine empires' conquests, rivalries, and strategies of domination--with an emphasis on how empires accommodated, created, and manipulated differences among populations.

Burbank and Cooper examine Rome and China from the third century BCE, empires that sustained state power for centuries. They delve into the militant monotheism of Byzantium, the Islamic Caliphates, and the short-lived Carolingians, as well as the pragmatically tolerant rule of the Mongols and Ottomans, who combined religious protection with the politics of loyalty. Burbank and Cooper discuss the influence of empire on capitalism and popular sovereignty, the limitations and instability of Europe's colonial projects, Russia's repertoire of exploitation and differentiation, as well as the "empire of liberty"--devised by American revolutionaries and later extended across a continent and beyond.

With its investigation into the relationship between diversity and imperial states, Empires in World History offers a fresh approach to understanding the impact of empires on the past and present.

5-0 out of 5 stars Empires Molders of Nation-States
Professors Jane Burbank and Frederick Cooper deviate from the traditional narrative about the birth and development of the nation-state.Both authors contend that a world of bounded and unitary states interacting with other equivalent states dates from 1948 C.E. rather than 1648 C.E. and the Treaty of Westphalia.For this reason, professors Burbank and Cooper explore instead the rise and fall of specific empires, their imaginary, their interaction with each other, and their respective repertoires of power.

Professors Burbank and Cooper demonstrate convincingly that throughout history, most people have lived in empires that did not aim to represent a single nation.Unlike nation-states that tend to homogenize those inside their polity, empires treat different nations within their polity differently.Conflicts among empires, resistance of conquered people, and rebellions of settlers were some key factors in any cost-benefit analysis of empire-building and sustenance.

To their credit, professors Burbank and Cooper clearly explain the vertical nature of power relations within empires, as leaders try to recruit reliable intermediaries to manage distant territories and achieve contingent accommodation to their rule.Empires used a wide variety of repertoires of rule such as reliance on a class of loyal, trained officials, empowerment of (select) citizens, marriage politics, and tribal allegiances to secure these essential intermediaries.Both authors also explore in much detail how empires vied with each other to become or remain the top "dog" over time.Imperial strategies such as restriction of competitive empires' connections, imperialism of free trade, and alliance of different empires against one or more other empires were in use at the intersection of empires.

In conclusion, professors Burbank and Cooper give their audience a great opportunity to broaden their horizon by considering an alternative read on the history of humanity.As a side note, History could produce a new series on empires, states, and political imagination as a complement to its existing series "Engineering an Empire."

Editorial Review

*****
From 1958 to 2004, Robert and Jane Meyerhoff assembled one of the greatest collections ever to focus on American painting of the postwar era. Built around six major figures - Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Brice Marden, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella - the collection comprises some three hundred works, almost half of which are included here. It reaches back to the leading abstract expressionists - Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still - and forward to younger artists such as Terry Winters, Julian Lethbridge, Mel Bochner and Joel Shapiro. A dazzling array of paintings is complemented by sculptural objects that incorporate the wall (or even hang from it), while a strong selection of prints and drawings highlights daring technical innovations in those media. Rather than organize the collection by artist, chronology, or medium, Harry Cooper, curator of modern and contemporary art, identifies ten material and visual themes that crisscross it: Scrape, Concentricity, Line, Gesture, Art on Art, Drip, Stripe to Zip, Figure or Ground, Monochrome and Picture the Frame.There is a short essay devoted to each category begins with an early twentieth-century work from the National Gallery's own collection to offer a broad perspective on the modernist enterprise that is both furthered and subverted by the brilliant artists of the Meyerhoff stable. Jane Meyerhoff's untimely death in 2004 brought the Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection to a close. In addition to many important gifts already made to the National Gallery, the Meyerhoffs have pledged their collection to the nation, together with their home and galleries near Baltimore, Maryland. Here then is a celebration of a historic act of philanthropy and, above all, a great gathering of art. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The generous collector's eye
This catalogue documents the current exhibition held at the National Gallery in Washington of one of the best private collections of post-war art: the Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection. Since 1958, this Maryland couple has amassed some of the best examples of works by such masters as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Jean Dubuffet, Clyfford Still, Philip Guston, Brice Marden etc, all of which are destined to be on permanent display in the museum, thanks to the generosity of their owners.

The book starts with an essay by curator Harry Cooper, studying the works by dividing them into various themes such as "Scrape" (Dubuffet, De Kooning...), "Concentricity" (Albers, Noland...), "Line" (Marden...), "Gesture" (Kelly, Stella...), etc. The magnificent color plates that follow are arranged according to this same classification, which can sometimes seem too arbitrary, if not confusing (a work by Brice Marden appears in the chapter "Line", but might as well have been classified in "Gesture", and this is just one example).

Now, in spite of this debatable choice by the author of the somewhat pedantic introductory essay, this book is worth it because of its marvelous illustrations (and the quality of the paper used). ... Read more

Editorial Review

*****
The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Rich in titles on English life and social history, this collection spans the world as it was known to eighteenth-century historians and explorers. Titles include a wealth of travel accounts and diaries, histories of nations from throughout the world, and maps and charts of a world that was still being discovered. Students of the War of American Independence will find fascinating accounts from the British side of conflict.

*****
Former New York State Poet Jane Cooper brings together work from four earlier books, along with eighteen previously unpublished poems. In a voice of unusual integrity Jane Cooper traces the arc of a life, from poems written out of the shadow of World War II, to haunting personal elegies, to poems that, with no loss of intimacy, engage history with passion and subtlety. Here are poems of love, loss, friendship, concern for the lives of women, the humor and "complex shame" of a white Southern heritage, the mysteries of art. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Radiant and Mature
I heard a review and several excerpts read in an NPR article about current American poets.Ms Cooper is a mature, well-honed voice in our national poetic heritage, with an eye on the sublime and real; the aging and realityof seeking and losing relationships.I was so touched by Ms Cooper's voiceand quotes, that I had to buy this book.I encourage you to do the same,to experience the clarity and introspection of an older poet who has beenthrough it all, and knows how to re-tell it in useful, neat nuggets.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant poetry
Jane Cooper's poetry combines radiant language with stunning, quiet insight.Her work spans the breadth of human experience, but instead of soaring off away from earth it ropes the ethereal and the eternal to thisworld, to our lives. These poems are moving and timeless. ... Read more

*****
School exclusion is becoming increasingly viewed as being out-of-date and misguided and almost all practitioners and leaders are committed to inclusion. However, many schools aiming for full inclusion can find it difficult not to exclude some students. This book shows teachers and managers how five schools have successfully implemented policy and practice to avoid excluding any students.Based around five in-depth case-studies (four secondary and one primary), the book describes positive strategies for preventing children from being excluded. ...

*****
Celia Bland’s poetry has some of the vivid characterization and the black humor of contemporary novels, but her spare music insists upon the lyrical epiphanies of the instant; those small lonesome moments of understanding. One could say that she creates out of the ordinary, out of the everyday tragedies and comedies, a poetry that links our daily routines to the archaic past. Hers are the verses of the bedroom, the changing table and the kitchen table, the poetry of what can never be said, and what must be said. "We need poems such as these," wrote Annie Wright, "to jolt us, to look at our own lives more carefully and, for some, to know that one is not alone in the world..."

5-0 out of 5 stars Poetry that matters
Celia Bland is a voice that writes poems that aim for the brain and the gut.Her work is
highly ambitious without ever seeming so.She has the natural ear for the comic and the tragic,
the sublime moments of transcendence lurking in the realm of the every day.
Her language is an incessant delight of invention, working in the service of
presenting an often raw and raucous world with confidence and truth.This was that
kind of stunning collection of poems that makes the reader gasp, and wonder, and
wand to read it again. ... Read more
