1 Brotton, Jerry GLOBAL INTERESTS: RENAISSANCE ART BETWEEN EAST AND WEST
Reaktion Books 2005 1861891660 / 9781861891662 Paperback Near Fine 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: 'This fascinating book provided me with a whole new way of thinking about t he European Renaissance ... While offereing a series of elegant interpretat ions of art objects exchanged between East and West... this is also an epic story of imperial rivalry exploring the ways in which courts jostled for s upremacy through their display of magnificent art objects, many of which ar e beautifully reproduced here' - The Good Book Guide 'Books of the Year' 'C ultural history needs the wider perspective [the authors] enjoin, and, as t heir reflections suggest, it is a mistake to think one can satisfactorily e xplain anything about the European continent - its art, the growth of it sc ience, its social, political or religious history - in ignorance of its clo se relations with its eastern and southern margins. Global Interests is a v aluable corrective to the established tendency to disregard them' - Literar y Review 'impressive ... the discussion is full of remarkable examples ... there is much that will stimulate thought and excite admiration' - Art Quar terly About the Author Lisa Jardine is director of the AHRB Research Centre for Editing Lives and Letters and professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London.

2 Chicago, Judy WOMEN AND ART: CONTESTED TERRITORY
Watson-Guptill 1999 0823058522 / 9780823058525 First Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
This is a curiously interesting hybrid with two running commentaries per pa ge. The central space is reserved for a somewhat traditional art historical text on women artists and images of women in art by British art critic/art historian Lucie-Smith. The rest is filled with the writings of one of the most opinionated and surely the most famous U.S.-based feminist artist, Chi cago, creator of The Dinner Party. The collaboration is certainly eye-catch ing, but, despite 200 beautiful color plates, this is no coffee-table decor ation. It seems compiled to capture the attention of any browsing reader of college age and above. Many of the ten chapters might startle the average readerAthey're explicit about gender issues, bodily functions, and other od dities that are now a part of contemporary art.
