The art of Bill Ward (1918-1998) has become so rare and collectible that photographer and veteran TASCHEN editor Eric Kroll has had to trawl through archives across America to assemble this broad selection of Ward’s very best work. Bill Ward’s long, prolific pin-up career began during World War II when he created a curvy distraction named Torchy for his fellow soldiers. His taste for impossibly buxom blondes—teetering on stiletto heels, legs encased in black nylon, torsos packed into satin gowns—precisely suited Amerca’s collective postwar sex fantasy, and the late 50s men’s magazine boom made him the most popular girlie artist in the country. Through the 1960s, 70s, 80, and 90s, Ward broadened his range to embrace a variety of fetish subjects, but he never varied from his template of the Ultimate Woman—except to make her breasts a little bigger, her heels a little higher, or the satin and leather encasing her a little glossier.

Если имя Альберта Ейнштейна до сих пор вызывает массу ассоциаций, то имя некого Роберта Тэйлора теперь звучит совершенно нейтрально. Хотя, судя по контексту, он, скорее всего, был киноактером, т.е. речь идет об «уме» (Эйнштейн) и «красоте» (Тэйлор). Но когда речь идет о более известных людях и событиях, декодировать аллюзию не составляет труда и сейчас, более 60 лет после написания романа. ‘ om lu ched wi h Sir Wa ky Basse a he la er’s club yes erday. O he bill of fare was a cold lobs er, a d his Machiavelli sicked him o i .’ (Ситуация: зная, что дядя Том страдает несварением желудка, сэр Уоткин «соблазняет» отведать его холодного лобстера. За это коварство он и назван Макиавелли.) I saw immedia ely wha Madeli e Basse had mea whe she said ha Gussie had los his diffide ce.

|Stalin's Folly: The Tragic First Ten Days of World War Two on the Eastern Front Daedalus Books Constantine P. |
The attack was stunning, but Stalin' s response was even more astonishing. During the invasion, the mighty Soviet military stood in place while its soldiers were slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands. Drawing on a wealth of newly available documents, from classified Politburo papers and diaries of key generals to diplomatic cables and secret police memos, the Russian historian Constantine Pleshakov paints a startling portrait of Stalin, one of history' s most feared despots, as a vulnerable and paralyzed leader.

|The Man Who Sold the World: David Bowie and the 1970s HarperCollins Publishers Doggett P. |
The Man Who Sold the World lays bare the evolution of Bowie' s various personas and unrivaled career of innovation as a musician, singer, composer, lyricist, actor, and conceptual artist. It is a fan' s ultimate resource - the most rigorous and insightful assessment to date of Bowie' s artistic achievement during this crucial period. What emerges is an illuminating account of how Bowie escaped his working-class London background to become a global phenomenon. The Man Who Sold the World is a critical study of David Bowie' s most inventive and influential decade, from his first hit, Space Oddity, in 1969, to the release of the LP Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) in 1980.

Among the book' s wider themes are the West' s growing sense of insecurity in the age of oil shortages and terrorism; the changing nature of sexual roles, as represented by Bowie' s pioneering adoption of a bisexual persona; the emergence of a new experimental form of rock music that would leave an indelible mark on the decades to come; and the changing nature of many of the world' s great cities, including London, New York, Los Angeles and Berlin, each of which played host to Bowie during particularly creative periods of his career.
