The Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples is not your typical guidebook. Written for the intrepid traveller seeking a more profound experience, the NU Guide delves deep - deep enough to catch the cultural heartbeat of the city. It's a must-have for anyone with more than just a passing interest in Naples and you'll want to revisit the book again and again, long after your return home. There's also plenty here to satisfy the wanderlust of armchair travellers. Written by four women united by a common passion - Napoli - who love to wax lyrical about their adoptive city, it makes you feel you're seeing Naples through the eyes of your best friends. Their own enthusiasms are multiple: art, archaeology and architecture; history and mythology; music, dance and theatre; food and wine, the islands and the beach - even shopping - and each subject has its narrative moment in the spotlight. The prose is embellished by many beautiful photographs, urban sketches and plein-air paintings by artists who couldn't resist the siren call of Parthenope. From the parallel city hidden below Naples' bustling streets to the summit of Vesuvius, the authors explore the city - one of the oldest in the Western world, the bay - surely the most stunning, and a little further afield in Campania. Rambles Through the City explores Naples by the neighbourhood - its historic and municipal centres as well as its hill districts and is enhanced by creative cartography to orient the reader; Outings in the Outskirts dives into the Bay of Naples and a bit beyond - the Vesuvius Excavations, the Phlegraean Fields and the glories of the Amalfi Coast; Ventures in a Different Vein feeds the mind and delights the senses with a section dedicated entirely to Naples' history, and finally, the authors outline an immersion course in the city's music, theatre and food and wine cultures. Each section is equipped with practical advice on transport, opening hours, essential numbers - and the book is topped off with a thematic index offering the reader other pathways of discovery into the city. Visit Naples, discover Napoli!

Grounded in real-life stories, Art Collecting Today is the essential practical guide to today's art market. A lightly regulated industry with more than sixty billion dollars of annual sales, the art market is often opaque and confusing to even the most experienced collectors. But whether a seasoned collector, an uninitiated newcomer, or an art-world insider, readers will learn within these pages how the art marketplace works in practice and how to navigate it smartly. Those who may have been put off by art-world practices will finally feel they have the knowledge needed to participate freely and fully, and collectors will be able to pursue their passion with more confidence. Important topics covered include: How to evaluate, buy, and sell art while avoiding costly mistakes and time-consuming roadblocks How the market works in practice for essential artists like René Magritte, Christopher Wool, Amedeo Modigliani, and Yayoi Kusama How collectors can be taken advantage of, and the actions they should take to protect themselves Why tax laws in the United States reward "art investors" yet penalize "art collectors" How cultural property laws impact the market for works by such artists as Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol Advice for new and prospective collectors Informed by close to one hundred interviews with collectors, lawyers, art advisors, gallerists, and auction specialists in the United States and Europe, as well as by the author's own experiences, Art Collecting Today offers a lively and thought-provoking analysis of the day-to-day workings at play today in the fine art marketplace.

The book constitutes an elementary course on Plane Euclidean Geometry, pitched at pre-university or at advanced high school level. It is a concise book treating the subject axiomatically, but since it is meant to be a first introduction to the subject, excessive rigour is avoided, making it appealing to a younger audience as well. The aim is to cover the basics of the subject, while keeping the subject lively by means of challenging and interesting exercises. This makes it relevant also for students participating in mathematics circles and in mathematics olympiads. Each section contains several problems, which are not purely drill exercises, but are intended to introduce a sense of "play" in mathematics, and inculcate appreciation of the elegance and beauty of geometric results. There is an abundance of colour pictures illustrating results and their proofs. A section on hints and a further section on detailed solutions to all the exercises appear at the end of the book, making the book ideal also for self-study.

Lisbon: city of the sea is a beautifully written portrait of a much loved city, from its origins in Greek legend to the present day. Malcolm Jack vividly captures the rich and unique history of this haunting and attractive port whose prominent position on the Tagus estuary has inextricablybound its character with the sea. Lisbon is a city of steep inclines and complicated, unsymmetrical streets that criss-cross the hills only in the Baixa area near the river and in the more modern, northern part of the city does any form of a grid system appear. It has enjoyed a political history that has directed Portugal’s focus more overseas than inland towards continental Europe, in part because of Spain’s geographical position. Thus the city has been stretched in one direction toward Brazil and in another toward the Cape of Good Hope and from there to Asia and the East. Beginning with its earliest inhabitants, Jack traces the city’s life through its imperial success in the sixteenth century and the devastating earthquake that humbled the city and shocked Europe in 1755 to its current position as a vibrant and successful European capital. Lisbon’s romantic atmosphere has captured the imaginations of foreigners through the ages._x000D_ Poets, writers and musicians have all drawn inspiration from different parts of Lisbon. This sensitive exploration of the city’s many aspects draws out its cosmopolitan nature, as well as its colourful culture and self-image and brings us closer to understanding its true spirit. Engaging and accessible, this book will appeal to Lisbon’s many visitors as well as anyone interested in European history._x000D_ _x000D_ ‘Malcolm Jack is a surefooted and erudite guide to the labyrinth of historical Lisbon. _x000D_ The city’s Moorish past, the age of discovery when Lisbon was the harbour from which the limits of the world were explored, the architectural splendours of the Manueline age, the desolation of the great earthquake of 1755, the Grand Tours of Beckford and Byron, the weird urban fantasies of Pessoa, the hauntingly nostalgic airs of fado _x000D_ - all are conjured up in this splendid book.’_x000D_ Robert Irwin, Historian, Arabist and novelist_x000D_ _x000D_ ‘A scholarly yet highly entertaining introduction to Lisbon. The author constantly draws on his extensive knowledge of contemporary travel literature but his main source of description and insight derives from his own, direct observation of all _x000D_ the nooks and crannies of old Lisbon and his unique ability to capture the spirit _x000D_ of the place. Recommended as essential reading for Lisbon lovers, prospective travellers, Lusophiles and others.’ _x000D_ Professor João Almeida Flor, University of Lisbon
