    Kenneth Clark’s sweeping narrative looks at how Western Europe evolved in the wake of the collapse of the Roman Empire, to produce the ideas, books, buildings, works of art and great individuals that make up our civilisation.

    The author takes us from Iona in the ninth century to France in the twelfth, from Florence to Urbino, from Germany to Rome, England, Holland and America. Against these historical backgrounds he sketches an extraordinary cast of characters — the men and women who gave new energy to civilisation and expanded our understanding of the world and of ourselves. He also highlights the works of genius they produced — in architecture, sculpture and painting, in philosophy, poetry and music, and in science and engineering, from Raphael’s School of Athens to the bridges of Brunel.

    This beautifully illustrated volume showcases Manipur, the eastern-most state of the country on the India-Myanmar border, through stories and images, revealing the complexities of a region that many have referred to as possessing a ‘tortured beauty’.

    Manipur has often been called ‘mini-India’. Home to different religions, languages, cultures and customs, Manipur is, indeed, incredibly diverse, much like the country of which it is a part. Yet, this feature is also what makes it one of the most incredibly interesting places to visit and experience – a fact that is often overlooked due to the dearth of written material and, importantly, visual representations of the myriad aspects of the state.

    Shadow and Light: A Kaleidoscope of Manipur takes the reader on a visual journey through thousand years of history and the art, culture and traditions of the multiethnic people of Manipur. Through nuanced essays and captivating visuals on the state’s history, its natural treasures, its culture, food, local crafts and performing arts, this edition is an ideal collectible and gift for culture enthusiasts, travelers and nature lovers alike.

    Beauty and ugliness are two sides of the same coin; by ugliness we usually mean the opposite of beauty and we often define the first in order to understand the nature of the second. But the various depictions of ugliness over the centuries are richer and more unpredictable than is commonly thought. The striking images and anthological quotations in On Ugliness lead us on an extraordinary journey through the passions, terrors and nightmares of almost three thousand years, where acts of rejection go hand in hand with touching instances of empathy, and an aversion to deformity is accompanied by seductive violations of all classical canons.
    With his characteristic wit and erudition, Umberto Eco draws on examples in art and literature from ancient times to the present day. Abundantly illustrated with demons, madmen, vile enemies and disquieting presences, with freaks and the living dead, On Ugliness is conceived for a vast and diverse readership, and is an invaluable companion volume to On Beauty.
