    Encounter Books 2005; US$ 17.95

    "The Rape of the Masters" exposes the charlatanry that fuels much academic art history and leaks into the art world generally, affecting galleries, museums and catalogues.

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    Explicit material is more widely available in the internet age than ever before, yet the concept of ?obscenity? remains as difficult to pin down as it is to approach without bias: notions of what is ?obscene? shift with societies? shifting mores, and our responses to explicit or disturbing material can be highly subjective. In this intelligent and... more...
