Teardown

Memoir of a Vanishing City

After living in San Francisco for 15 years, journalist Gordon Young found himself yearning for his Rust Belt hometown: Flint, Michigan, the birthplace of General Motors and “star” of the Michael Moore documentary Roger & Me. Hoping to rediscover and help a place that once boasted one of the world’s highest per capita income levels, but is now one of the country's most impoverished and dangerous cities, he returned to Flint with the intention of buying a house. What he found was a place of stark contrasts and dramatic stories, where an exotic dancer can afford a lavish mansion, speculators scoop up cheap houses by the dozen on eBay, and arson is often the quickest route to neighborhood beautification. Skillfully blending personal memoir, historical inquiry, and interviews with Flint residents, Young constructs a vibrant tale of a once-thriving city still fighting—despite overwhelming odds—to rise from the ashes. He befriends a rag-tag collection of urban homesteaders and die-hard locals who refuse to give up as they try to transform Flint into a smaller, greener town that offers lessons for cities all over the world. Hard-hitting, insightful, and often painfully funny, Teardown reminds us that cities are ultimately defined by people, not politics or economics.

Nothing defines a person like their hairstyle – and what a century it has been for hair! Bangs, bobs, buns, beehives and bouffants have vied with pixie cuts, pin curls, perms and pageboys for ascendancy in an ever-changing parade of ladies' looks and trends, and amongst the men we've seen caesers, comb overs, ducktails, faux hawks, flattops, quiffs and slick backs. From the Edwardian era through the seismic changes of the 1920s and '60s, and including every quirky twist hair history took on its way to the turn of the millennium, this book is a lush visual survey of a hundred years of hairstyles.

A History of Democracy in Ten Works of Art

Throughout Western history, the societies that have made the greatest contributions to the spread of freedom have created iconic works of art to celebrate their achievements. Yet despite the enduring appeal of these works—from the Parthenon to Michelangelo’s David to Picasso’s Guernica—histories of both art and democracy have ignored this phenomenon. Millions have admired the artworks covered in this book but relatively few know why they were commissioned, what was happening in the culture that produced them, or what they were meant to achieve. Even scholars who have studied them for decades often miss the big picture by viewing them in isolation from a larger story of human striving. David’s Sling places into context ten canonical works of art executed to commemorate the successes of free societies that exerted political and economic influence far beyond what might have been expected of them. Fusing political and art history with a judicious dose of creative reconstruction, Victoria Coates has crafted a lively narrative around each artistic object and the free system that inspired it. This book integrates the themes of creative excellence and political freedom to bring a fresh, new perspective to both. In telling the stories of ten masterpieces, David’s Sling invites reflection on the synergy between liberty and human achievement.

Straight or curly, long or short, blonde or dark, hair offers women the ability to change their appearance dramatically - and define their social standing and style allegiance. Hairstyles: Ancient to Present seeks to celebrate the complex art of hairdressing from its earliest known beginnings to the most modern and contemporary of styles. Featuring over 1000 illustrations and photographs, including astonishingly ornate eighteenth century powdered wigs bedecked with ostrich feathers, flowers and jewels; photography of glamorous 1940s film stars and their carefully waved and dressed hair; advertisements for hair treatments and products going back to the eighteenth century; and the poker straight lengths so fashionable in the 1990s. Hairstyles also celebrates the famous names behind the styles - Mademoiselle Julienne (whose elaborate coiffure of 1778 involved a scale model of a ship) receives plaudits, as do Vidal Sassoon, Leonard of Mayfair, Raymond Bessone, and modern day salons and stylists such as TONIandGUY, Gianni Scumaci, Antoinette Beenders, and Eugene Souleiman. There is nothing we love to change more than our hair - Hairstyles: Ancient to Present is not only a stunning documentation of the history of styling, but a unique inspiration.
