We've got a completely new look and format that we can't wait to show you!
In July, the theme is Global and International Studies, and after the first half of 2011, there is plenty to recount. New books on Afghanistan, Yemen, Egypt, and southern Africa are at the center of our political discussions, and a new take on the history of the veil surrounds current controversies on Islamic women's dress in America, Europe, and the Middle East. We'll have early looks at our Fall showcase of religion, religious art, and literature in translation titles, featuring upcoming highlights from our Margellos World Republic of Letters series. More on the legacies of American Modernism, with new Icons of America titles and updates on books about Georgia O'Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz, and Gertrude Stein. And there's a host of museum exhibitions traveling the globe, with our catalogues waiting right here at home.
