Tuesday, 08 May 2012
Yale's Autumn / Winter 2012 catalogue is now available to order and download. There are plenty of fascinating, beautiful and intelligent books to look forward to this season. You'll have to read the catalogue to find out more, but highlights include William F. Bynum's A Little History of Science (p1), The Richard Burton Diaries, published in their entirety for the very first time (p3), Rosemary Ashton's fabulous London history book Victorian Bloomsbury (p10) and the major exhibition catalogue to the blockbuster Matisse show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Pompidou Centre, Paris (p33).
Yale’s acclaimed current affairs list continues to grow, with new titles looking at Italian politics (p8), Syria and fall of Bashar Al-Assad (p9), and an important new book on climate change (p14). Other intriguing titles include J.H Elliott's book on the craft of being a historian (p6), Geoffrey Parker's analysis of war, climate change and catastrophe in the 17th century (p7) and Nicholas Rose's rich new biography of John Keats (p11).
There are simply too many titles to mention here (and we haven’t even covered the fantastic range of new art books from The National Gallery), but highlights from our art list include a groundbreaking exploration of the social, cultural and artistic effects of fashion during the Impressionist era (p35), a powerful new book on war photography (p12) and a lavishly illustrated history of the handbag (p16).
