    Silk Roads: Peoples, Cultures, Landscapes

    Silk Roads: Peoples, Cultures, Landscapes

    by Susan Whitfield

    As world powers realign their cultural, economic and political outlooks, there is no better time to consider how Afro-Eurasia's complex network of ancient trade routes - which spanned the vastness of the steppe, vertiginous mountain ranges, fertile river plains and forbidding deserts across the continents and on to the seas beyond - fostered economic activity and cultural, political and technological communication. From silk to slaves, fashion to music, religion to science the movement of interaction of goods, people and ideas was crucial to the flourishing of peoples and their cultures across this vast region. Edited by Susan Whitfield, an established authority on the subject, with contributions from over 80 leading scholars from across the globe, Silk Roads situates the ancient routes against the landscapes that defined them, to reveal the raw materials that they produced, the means of travel that were employed to traverse them and the communities that were shaped by them. Organized by terrain, from steppe to desert to ocean, each section includes detailed maps, a historical overview, thematic essays and features showcasing art, buildings and archaeological discoveries. A wealth of photographs reveals the breathtaking and often forbidding landscapes encountered by travellers and traders through the millennia. With one section inscribed as a World Heritage Corridor by UNESCO in 2014 and others to follow, and China claiming the Silk Roads as the precursor of its Belt Road Initiative, this network of ancient trade routes and the interaction along them has never been of greater interest or importance than today. This beautiful publication honours the astonishing diversity in the way cultures advance and flourish not in spite of their differences, but because of them.

    The Complete Tutankhamun: 100 Years of Discovery

    The Complete Tutankhamun: 100 Years of Discovery

    by Nicholas Reeves

    A fully updated and revised edition of a classic bestseller: the definitive guide to Tutankhamun and his tomb - what it contained, why, and what it means today. On 4 November 1922, Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter's long search in Egypt's Valley of the Kings drew to a triumphant close: Tutankhamun's tomb had been found. As news of the discovery spread, and as images of the breathtaking treasures began to circulate, this once-obscure pharaoh would capture the imagination of the entire world. A hundred years on, and both the fascination and the drama continue. Scientific research has pushed forward, and the results have been impressive: the tomb's ground-plan and setting are now fully remapped; CT-scanning and aDNA have begun to shed their unique light on Tutankhamun in life and in death; super-accurate recordings have been secured of the Burial Chamber's decorated walls; and we possess at last high-quality photography of Pharaoh's possessions. Our access to Carnarvon and Carter's extraordinary find is greater today than it has ever been, and from this fuller evidence comes one new realization among many - that both the tomb and its treasures had been intended for someone else. In this new edition of his landmark book Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves revisits Tutankhamun in the context of his time, the excavators in the context of theirs, and every aspect, old and new, of the tomb's discovery, archaeology, architecture and art. If what was discovered in 1922 had the ability to amaze, then what has been discovered since will simply astonish.

    The Emperors of Byzantium

    The Emperors of Byzantium

    by Lygo, Kevin; Peston Robert; Hughes Bettany

    A compelling and vivid narrative history of one of the founding civilizations of the modern world, the Byzantine empire, evocatively told through the lives of its 92 emperors. The Byzantine empire was one of the most successful states of the Middle Ages, ruling over a huge terrain straddling Europe and western Asia for an unrivalled eleven hundred years. Yet its history remains largely unfamiliar. This chronicle brings this majestic yet turbulent period to life through the lives of its emperors: supreme military commander, Head of State and God's representative on earth, no less. These were the men and women that presided over many of the foundations of the modern world, from the establishment of the Eastern Orthodox Christian faith, to the magnificent artistic heritage of Hagia Sophia and Mount Athos, and the creation of a visual template for Christian art. Each illustrated biographical entry contributes to the story of how Byzantium shaped our art, culture, religious beliefs and justice systems, and the role this extraordinary empire played in halting repeated invasions, allowing the idea of 'Europe' to flourish. Through stories of nobility and petty revenge, of religious devotion and brutal genocide, and of sexual intrigue and artistic brilliance; from soaring intellectuals to illiterate peasants, eunuchs and despots, this is a humanizing portrayal of individuals, whose role impacted the lives of millions.

    Lebanon On Screen: The Greatest Moments Of Lebanese Television And Pop Culture

    Lebanon On Screen: The Greatest Moments Of Lebanese Television And Pop Culture

    by Zaven Kouyoumdjian

    If it did not happen on television, it did not happen at all… and if it is not in English, it’s “what the hell are you talking about!”… “Lebanon on Screen: The Greatest Moments of Lebanese Television and Pop Culture” is the first book of its kind written in English, documenting the landmark moments and milestones of Lebanese television. From the country’s first television broadcast in 1959 to the birth of the first Audio Visual Media Law in Lebanon and the Middle East in 1994, this book will tell you the tale of Lebanon the warzone, and Lebanon the dreamland, as well as Lebanon the small country that played a leading cultural role in shaping the larger Arab World. This book captures three and a half decades of Lebanese entertainment, pop culture and history, as portrayed by the small screen. It showcases Lebanese television’s most famous and infamous moments, its unforgettable firsts, glamorous golden age icons and legends, and its most memorable heroes and villains, who not only shaped Lebanon as a nation and a state, but also pushed its cultural and social boundaries. Inspired by an Arabic book published by television talk show producer and host, best-selling author Zaven Kouyoumdjian in 2015, this book aims to take Lebanese television and pop culture to the world. After all, isn’t pop culture what really changes the world, and unites us all?

    منحه الخالق تكوينًا جسديًّا قادرًا على إظهار الموهبة الخلّاقة والصوت النادر، واعتمد على نفسه ليشقّ طريق المجد بعصامية، متخطّيًا كلّ الصعوبات في طريقه نحو القمّة، فوصلها لوحده متحدّيًا بصوته وأدائه كلّ العوائق، ليرفع علم التراث الأصيل منتصرًا، ويتوَّج ملكًا على عرش الغناء الشرقي بجدارة لا تضاهى.

    إنّه حارس تراث حلب، وفنّان العالم العربي، الكبير صباح فخري...

    غابريال شانيل خيوط حياتها

    by هالة كوثراني

    كتاب أنيق وفخم يتناول قصة حياة مصمّمة الأزياء الفرنسية غابريال شانيل (1883-1971)، والثورة التي أحدثتها في عالم الموضة عبر التاريخ.
    يسرد الكتاب القصة الكاملة للطفلة التي ولدت في الفقر والبؤس وترعرعت في ظلّ هجران الأب وموت الأم فنشأت يتيمة إلى أن استثمرت حسّها الأصيل العالي في الأناقة وحبّ الأقمشة لتؤسس حركة قلبت موازين الموضة في عصرها.
    فقد تسلقت تلك المرأة سلالم النجاح درجة درجة، متسلحة بشخصية حديدية وذوق فطري عالٍ، بعد أن تلقفها في البداية أرستقراطيون فتحوا لها الأبواب وموّلوا تجارتها الصغيرة إلى أن كبرت لتصبح إمبراطورية لها وزنها العالمي في مجال الموضة.
    في هذا الكتاب قصة المصممة كإنسانة وقصص أخرى عنها كمحترفة وصور ووثائق نادرة عن الرحلة الفريدة التي خاضتها امرأةٌ أرست موضةً لم تبطل حتى الآن.
