Title: Environment, politics, and ideology in North Korea : landscape as political project / Robert Winstanley-Chesters.
Author: Winstanley-Chesters, Robert, 1975-
Call Number: GE190.K7 W56 2015
Description: Environmental and developmental matters have long proved key to North Korea's "revolutionary" industrial and economic strategies. They have equally been important to Pyongyang's diplomatic and geo-political efforts both during the Warsaw Pact period and in our contemporary era following the collapse of its supportive and collaborative partners. However, while environmental issues have been very important to North Korea, academic analysis and commentary addressing this field of governmental and institutional functionality has been almost entirely lacking. This book fills this analytical void. Taking a narrative view of developmental approach throughout the political and ideological history of North Korea, Winstanley-Chesters first considers its impact on its landscapes and topographies in general throughout the era of the Kim dynasty. Second, in light of recent academic analysis suggesting North Korea as a space of Charismatic politics, the book focuses on the specificity of individual developmental sectors and projects, such as those addressing forestry and hydrology, seeking to trace general trends into these more particular environmental fields.--Back cover.

He traces the evolution of the game across cultures, time periods, and continents, from the paranoid Chicago toy genius behind classics like Operation and Mouse Trap, to the role of Monopoly in helping prisoners of war escape the Nazis, and even the scientific use of board games today to teach artificial intelligence how to reason and how to win. With these compelling stories and characters, Donovan ultimately reveals why board games have captured hearts and minds all over the world for generations"--

Description: "The pioneering artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy (1894-1946) worked across a range of art forms including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, film, advertising, and theater. This publication, which offers a fresh and extensive examination of his output, accompanies the first major American survey of Moholy's oeuvre in nearly a half century and represents the most extensive English-language book on the artist in thirty years. The catalogue reproduces a vast selection of Moholy's early paintings and photograms, his whimsical photomontages--all of which are reproduced together here for the first time--and late works in Plexiglas. Distinguished scholars offer new insights into his materials and working methods; the relation among writing, administration, and art making in his practice; and his influence on contemporary art. Particular emphasis is given to Moholy's American years and his leadership of the Chicago Bauhaus as well as his reception as a painter"--

Author: Jung, C. G. (Carl Gustav), 1875-1961.
Call Number: BF173 .J72513 2006
Description: In his classic, provocative work, Jung--one of psychology's greatest minds--argues that the future depends on our ability to resist society's mass movements. Only by understanding our unconscious inner nature--"the undiscovered self"--Can we gain the self-knowledge that is antithetical to ideological fanaticism. But this requires facing the duality of the human psyche--the existence of good and evil in us all. In this seminal book, Jung compellingly argues that only then can we cope and resist the dangers posed by those in power.--From publisher description.
