    “Originally published over half a decade ago, Anatol Lieven's America Right or Wrong has become a classic analysis of the special character of American nationalism. As he demonstrated, America's foreign policy response to the 9/11 attacks flowed directly from a nationalistic tradition that was two centuries in the making.

    “Winston Churchill began his career as a junior officer and war correspondent in the North West borderlands of British India, and this experience was the beginning of his long relationship with the Islamic world. Challenging the popular depiction of Churchill as an ignorant imperialist when it came to the Middle East, Dockter suggests that his policy making was often more informed and relatively progressive when compared to the Orientalist prejudices of many of his contemporaries.”

    "Brasil is a photographic exploration of culture, landscape and light by American photographer Kristin Capp (born 1964). Shooting in black-and-white film with a Rolleiflex camera, Capp turns her lens on urban Brazilian landscapes with an encompassing curiosity that resists classification. The eight years of work presented here reveal a highly personal, fluid, syncopated and complex Brazil. Avoiding heroic or ideological tropes, Capp captures the complexity of the sprawling and diverse country with images that range from portraits to candid urban scenes to pure abstraction."

    "Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) was the best-known amateur in the history of photography, famously discovered by the art world and given an exhibition at MoMA in New York when he was in his late sixties. He began by recording the pastimes and customs of his wealthy Parisian milieu, indulging his fascination with sports and aviation, and throughout his long life he was never without his camera. His work was irresistibly warm and engaging. Although known for his black-and-white work, Lartigue loved color film, experimenting with the autochrome process in the teens and twenties and embracing ektachrome in the late 1940s. His color work, reproduced here for the first time, is astonishingly fresh: the French countryside, the women in his life, famous friends (Picasso, Fellini) and glimpses from his travels all come alive."
