A letter of the alphabet, a dress, a rock formation or an airplane — the diversity of forms that the new architecture can take is almost infinite. In Building as Ornament, Michiel van Raaij interviews ten leading architects and historians to trace back how this new architecture first emerged in the early 1990s and how it has matured over the start of the present century. A new generation of architects regards the design of the scaled-up ornament as an intrinsic part of their practice. What are their motiva-tions? How do they place their ideas in the tradition of their old profes-sion? Michiel van Raaij argues that the new ornament allows architects to design ever more eloquent buildings, but that this new practice is also bound by certain rules. A successful ornament represents a virtue and explains the function, social status, load-bearing structure, organi-zation and/or context of the building. Michiel van Raaij is editor-in-chief of Architectenweb, a leading archi-tecture platform in the Netherlands. Includes interviews with Auke van der Woud, Denise Scott Brown, Charles Jencks, Adriaan Geuze, Michiel Riedijk, Alejandro Zaero-Polo, Ben van Berkel, Steven Holl, Winy Maas and Bjarke Ingels.

A cultural history of warriors and warfare in early Greece.
Using the Homeric epics as a guide, the reader is presented with a cultural history of warriors and warfare in Early Greece: from the chariot-borne soldiers of the Mycenaean palaces to the seaborne raiders of women and cattle of the Dark Age; from the men of bronze who helped assert Egyptian sovereignty, down to the battles of Thermopylae and Salamis. Along the way, a number of detailed issues are considered, including the proper place of the Greek hoplite in the history of the Eastern Mediterranean, the possible origins of the Argive shield, developments in naval warfare, and the activities of Greek mercenaries.
Written for an audience of serious students and specialists alike, Henchmen of Ares offers a detailed treatment of the relevant sources, with extensive bibliographic notes.
The author, Mediterranean archaeologist Josho Brouwers, wrote a doctoral dissertation on Early Greek warfare. He is currently editor of Ancient Warfare magazine.

A Marginal Jew

Auteur: John. P. Meier

Rethinking the historical Jezus

Taal: engels
Companions and Competitors is the third vol-ume of John Meier's monumental series, A Marginal Jew: Rethinking the Historical Jesus. A detailed and critical treatment of all the main ques-tions surrounding the historical Jesus, A Marginal Jew serves as a healthy antidote to the many superficial and trendy treatments of Jesus that have flooded the market. Volume I laid out the method to be used in pursu-ing a critical quest for the historical Jesus and sketched his cultural, political, and familial back-ground. Volume 1 focused on John the Baptist; Jesus' message of the kingdom of God: and his startling deeds, believed by himself and his followers to be miracles. Volume ill widens the spotlight from Jesus himself to the various groups around him, including his followers (the crowds, disciples, the circle of the Twelve) and his competitors (the Pharisees, the Sad-ducees, the Essenes and Qumranites, the Samaritans, the scribes, the Herodians, and the Zealots). In the process, important insights into how Jesus contoured his ministry emerge. Contrary to the pop-ular idea that he was some egalitarian Cynic philoso-pher with no concern for structures, Jesus clearly provided his movement with shape and structure. His followers roughly comprised three concentric circles. In the outer circle were the curious crowds who came and went. In the middle circle were the disciples

A time for every purpose under heaven

Auteur: Arthur Ocean Waskow & Phyllis Ocean Berman

More than twenty years ago, Arthur Ocean 1. 'V Waskow published a book, Seasons of Our Joy, that followed the flow of Jewish festivals through the year. It became a classic. Now, in A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven, Rabbi Waskow and his wife, Phyllis Ocean Berman, have brought us a book for the other great cycle of Jewish life—from birth to death.

They have woven handbook and history, spiritual guide and their own personal experience, ancient ceremonies and those brought forward by Jewish women today, into a single pattern for a welllived life—a unity.

The book moves from a new "Covenant of Washing"—the ritual act of parents washing a newborn daughter's feet to celebrate her arrival to an examination of how k'tubot, or marriage contracts, could be revised to affirm the commitments partners today need to make with each other, to ceremonies that celebrate the transformations of midlife, to enriching the rituals of grief in order to walk mourners through their own next spiral in the path of their lives.

A Time it Every Purpose Under Heaven will resonate both with observant Jews looking to broaden their experience of their faith and with those who are looking for new ways to reconnect with Judaism and make it a vital part of their lives again.

A Time: All There is Matters Equally

Auteur: K. Van Der Burg
This book is an attempt to make sense of what is the matter with humanity today. For the author and artist Kareline van der Burg 9-11 was a turning point and the inspiration of her artistic work. It made her think about Americas karma, the loss of the Indian Wisdom and the outright aggressiveness of America. Kareline realised that the western way of living is no longer the way forward. That inspired her to start studying the Indian culture and their love and feel for the unspoiled nature around them, seemingly unparalleled in history. Indians viewed their interaction with the animals and plants as important lessons to help them understand their own nature. As a result of Karelines inspiration, poetry and artwork, a rich illustrated art book was born: A Time: All There is Matters Equally . A masterpiece with glossy pictures of painted drums and jewellery and a new calendar, which makes you think about our cosmic nature. A collection of new native art, like goat-skinned drums with oils, with feathers and shells. The 52 drums are accompanied by 365 sentences to announce a new mindset to honor Gaia. The book shows jewellery inspired by the Mayan Calendar, revealing the relationship between cosmic cycles and our body. A perfect gift for who loves art and the true spirit of nature.
