Despite its enormous success and its evident importance in the context of sixteenth-century French literature, few major studies have been written about the French nouvelle of the age of Rabelais, aside from the explosion of articles and books on the Heptameron during the last decade. This study defends the thesis that various nouvelle collections employ an iconographic mode of representation, developing characters by means of external details that situate them on grids of hierarchical power relations. Author David LaGuardia concentrates on the philosophical implications of the nouvelle as a means of cataloging a large body of information about everyday life across a wide social spectrum in France in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

In this book David Martin argues, against Juergen Habermas, that religion and politics share a common mythic basis and that it is misleading to contrast the rationality of politics with the irrationality of religion. In contrast to Richard Dawkins (and New Atheists generally), Martin argues that the approach taken is brazenly unscientific and that the proclivity to violence is a shared feature of religion, nationalism and political ideology alike rooted in the demands of power and social solidarity.

Half a century after their deaths, the dictatorships of Stalin and Hitler still cast a long and terrible shadow over the modern world. They were the most destructive and lethal regimes in history, murdering millions. They fought the largest and costliest war in all history. Yet millions of Germans and Russians enthusiastically supported them and the values they stood for. In this first major study of the two dictatorships side-by-side Richard Overy sets out to answer the question: How was dictatorship possible? How did they function? What was the bond that tied dictator and people so powerfully together? He paints a remarkable and vivid account of the different ways in which Stalin and Hitler rose to power, and abused and dominated their people. It is a chilling analysis of powerful ideals corrupted by the vanity of ambitious and unscrupulous men.

The Philistines were migrants from the Aegean and Cyprus who changed during the 12th century BC. settled on the south coast of Palestine / Israel. During the Iron Age (approx. 1200600 BC) they developed a distinguished culture. David Ben-Shlomo presents and discusses the stock of iconographic representations of Philistine culture. The investigation includes various types of objects, including Clay paintings, statues, iron carvings, glyptics. The figurative style and symbolism impressively reflect both the connection of the Philistine culture to the Aegean homeland and the ongoing process of interaction with the local guest cultures in the southern Levant. Iconography thus provides an important testimony that helps to better understand the social, ethnic, religious and ideological aspects of the Philistines and their neighbors in the eastern Mediterranean.

In Latin America, where even today writing has remained a restricted form of expression, the task of generating consent and imposing the emergent nation-state as the exclusive form of the political, was largely conferred to the image. Furthermore, at the moment of its historical demise, the new, 'postmodern' forms of sovereignty appear to rely even more heavily on visual discourses of power. However, a critique of the iconography of the modern state-form has been missing. This volume is the first concerted attempt by cultural, historical and visual scholars to address the political dimension of visual culture in Latin America, in a comparative perspective spanning various regions and historical stages. The case studies are divided into four sections, analysing the formation of a public sphere, the visual politics of avant-garde art, the impact of mass society on political iconography, and the consolidation and crisis of territory as a key icon of the state.
