    I.B.Tauris 2009; US$ 14.95

    The fashion media have been central to the consecration of the city of Paris on the fashion map, as well as its celebration in the collective imagination. Indeed, with its conjunction of images and words, the fashion press constitutes a rich platform for an interrogation of how Paris has come to be constituted as a leading fashion city. Yet while much... more...

  • Dalai Lamaby Mayank Chhaya

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    If Tibet is the stubborn weak link in China's drive for recognition and respect as a world superpower, then the Dalai Lama holds the key to China's ambitions.

  • Unknown Stalin, Theby Roy Medvedev; Zhores A. Medvedev; Ellen Dahrendorf

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 7.12

    Josef Stalin remains one of the greatest enigmas of modern history. Unflinching, impenetrable, inhuman in his cruelty, bathed in misery himself, he represents to many a very paradigm of evil ? perhaps, in his icy rationalism, even more so than Hitler himself. More than a hundred biographies of Stalin have been written since his death in 1953, but 'The... more...

In terms of human trauma, it comes second only to Stalingrad, comparisons to which were even being... more...
