Many famous artists lived hundreds of years ago. It seems that, in the past hundred and fifty years, only a small handful of artists have ever become remotely popular. Modern art just seems not to be as captivating as older art is. There are plenty of familiar names from hundreds of years ago—Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, Michelangelo, and Raphael, among many others. One of the leaders of the modern art movement was named Pablo Picasso, a Spanish artist, many of whose paintings are still very famous and widely reprinted today. Picasso is known for his unique painting styles, and also his involvement in history. Picasso lived within the past century and a half, during which many drastic history movements were taking place, such as the Spanish Civil War, World War I, World War II, and many other cultural events that shaped the world as we know it. Part of the reason that Picasso is so famous is because the link between his art and history at the time. In order to understand his art, we must first understand his life and what his childhood was like. How did he start painting? How did he decide what to put down on canvases and paper? What about his art made people like it? How did he become famous? What role did his art play during the times of World War I, World War II, and the Spanish Civil War? Why did he spend most of his life in France? What is his enduring legacy? Pablo Picasso was an interesting man that led an interesting life, and studying him is studying a very important part of history and culture. Picasso’s story is a human story, and many readers will find that he is one of the most interesting artists in the world.

Vincent van Gogh created some of the best loved - and most expensive - works of art ever made, from the early The Potato Eaters to his late masterpieces Sunflowers and The Starry Night. He had worked as an art dealer, a missionary and as a teacher in England, and only in his late twenties did he begin a life that would be fundamental in shaping modern art. But when he died in Auvers-sur-Oise in 1890 at the age of thirty-seven he was largely unknown. Written with the cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum, Pulitzer-winning authors Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith recreate his extraordinary life, and the inside of his troubled mind, like never before - and they put forward an explosive new theory challenging the widespread belief that Van Gogh took his own life. Drawing for the first time on all of his (and his family's) extensive letters, which offer exquisite glimpses into his thoughts and feelings, this is the definitive portrait of one of the world's cultural giants.

There has been a deluge of material on biodiversity, starting from a trickle back in the mid-1980's. However, this book is entirely unique in its treatment of the topic. It is unique in its meticulously crafted, scientifically informed, philosophical examination of the norms and values that are at the heart of discussions about biodiversity. And it is unique in its point of view, which is the first to comprehensively challenge prevailing views about biodiversity and its value. According to those dominant views, biodiversity is an extremely good thing – so good that it has become the emblem of natural value. The book's broader purpose is to use biodiversity as a lens through which to view the nature of natural value. It first examines, on their own terms, the arguments for why biodiversity is supposed to be a good thing. This discussion cuts a very broad and detailed swath through the scientific, economic, and environmental literature. It finds all these arguments to be seriously wanting. Worse, these arguments appear to have consequences that should dismay and perplex most environmentalists. The book then turns to a deeper analysis of these failures and suggests that they result from posing value questions from within a framework that is inappropriate for nature's value. It concludes with a novel suggestion for framing natural value. This new proposal avoids the pitfalls of the ones that prevail in the promotion of biodiversity. And it exposes the goals of conservation biology, restoration biology, and the world's largest conservation organizations as badly ill-conceived.
