Despite what history has taught us about imperialism's destructive effects on colonial societies, many classicists continue to emphasize disproportionately the civilizing and assimilative nature of the Roman Empire and to hold a generally favorable view of Rome's impact on its subject peoples. Imperialism, Power, and Identity boldly challenges this view using insights from postcolonial studies of modern empires to offer a more nuanced understanding of Roman imperialism. Rejecting outdated notions about Romanization, David Mattingly focuses instead on the concept of identity to reveal a Roman society made up of far-flung populations whose experience of empire varied enormously. He examines the nature of power in Rome and the means by which the Roman state exploited the natural, mercantile, and human resources within its frontiers. Mattingly draws on his own archaeological work in Britain, Jordan, and North Africa and covers a broad range of topics, including sexual relations and violence; census-taking and taxation; mining and pollution; land and labor; and art and iconography. He shows how the lives of those under Rome's dominion were challenged, enhanced, or destroyed by the empire's power, and in doing so he redefines the meaning and significance of Rome in today's debates about globalization, power, and empire. Imperialism, Power, and Identity advances a new agenda for classical studies, one that views Roman rule from the perspective of the ruled and not just the rulers. In a new preface, Mattingly reflects on some of the reactions prompted by the initial publication of the book.

Photography in America was not even ten years old when gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill, and the rush of miners was followed by a rush of daguerreotype practitioners; both crafts evolved together in this remarkable time. Silver and Gold, the first book-length treatment of the earliest major historical phenomenon to be recorded by the camera lens, presents more than 150 extraordinary daguerreotypes and ambrotypes, many never before published. Silver and Gold includes works by Robert Vance, P.M. Batchelder, William Shew, Frederick Coombs, and W. H. Rulofson -- images of native Californians and those who migrated there to seek their fortunes in the gold fields. Photographs from the mining communities reflect the miners' rough houses, sunburned faces, and makeshift clothes, capturing the isolation and determination of people working under difficult conditions far from home. Essays by John Wood, poet and founding president of the Daguerreian Society; Peter Palmquist, independent scholar and curator in the field of photography; and Drew Johnson and Marcia Eymann, cocurators of the Oakland Museum exhibition that complements this volume, enhance these striking early images. In addition, annotations on the back of the photographs and written accounts of the experiences they record provide glimpses into the intentions of the photographers.

Every photograph - whether family snapshot or museum masterpiece - comes to life out of the silver shadows in the negative. Yet the value and intrinsic beauty of the photographic negative have been woefully underappreciated. Auction houses disdain negatives of even the most celebrated photographs, insurance companies routinely underestimate their worth, and the general public never gets to see them. Only archivists, dealers and photographers themselves understand how priceless, unique and visually stunning negatives truly are. Celebrating the Negative rectifies matters in glorious fashion. John Loengard has tracked down and photographed the negatives of some of the most famous images ever made: Alexander Gardner's legendary portrait of Abraham Lincoln and Walker Evans' haunting portrait of Bud Fields and his family; Ansel Adams' serene Moonrise, Hernandez, N. Mex. and Robert Capa's D-day beachhead. Loengard's work literally and figuratively illuminates these negatives, revealing how the photographer has manipulated the image to produce the final print by choosing what to crop or enlarge, what to darken or lighten. The mastery of Man Ray, Yousuf Karsh, Alfred Stieglitz, Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andre Kertesz and Edward Weston, to name but some of the many photographers represented here, shows up in their negative capability.

For many the phrase "gold rush" conjures up images of the 1849ers panning for gold in the western United States. But in 1979, the biggest gold rush of this century began in the Brazilian Amazon and has continued unabated ever since. Despite attempts by governments and mining companies to control it, the Amazon gold rush has flourished, involving hundreds of thousands of miners in an informal-sector industry which produces over a billion dollars' worth of gold annually. Moreover, the mining activity has become famous--or infamous--well beyond Brazil, thanks to the furor it has raised in the environmental community. This important anthropological study takes the first broad and balanced look at the gold rush to explain its history, the social organization of the gold camps, the politics and the economics of gold in Brazil, and the implications of the gold rush for Amazonia and its people.

Epitomizing the confidence and vigour of contemporary art world-wide, the range of artists featured both within Glasgow's new museum, the Gallery of Modern Art, and this book encompasses the whole gamut of human experience. Many of these living artists have contributed their own thoughts about themselves, their work in general or the actual work displayed in the Gallery. Their quotations give added meaning and validity to the illustrations in the very personal essay on Art for People written by Glasgow Museums' Director Julian Spalding and in the Artists' Profiles section which is enriched by additional works and by photographs of artists at work in their studios.

This study analyses the formation of power relations and hierarchy among the gold diggers of the region of the Tapajos in the lower Amazonas. Following the route of immigrants who escape from social death in the Brazilian Northeast driven on by the dream of gold, this book analyses the daily life of a community of gold diggers. It studies the articulation between individual and group and between the local society and regional and national contexts. The description of methods of work in gold extraction form a background to an analysis of how social identity, power and authority are constituted in the gold digger society, in which an ever present violence and prevalent disease combine to keep the individual in a state of existential Precariousness

"This book examines ways by which artists have explored the fascination and meaning of stone. Those who sculpt with the chisel, grind pigments, create landscapes, fashion jewellery or work with graphite are connecting directly with the rock beneath their feet. Early people drew or painted on the rockface and fashioned flint. More recently humankind has selected stone to build and sculpt and has consistently conferred values, properties and meanings upon selected stones."--BOOK JACKET.
