The Loves Of The Artists

Jonathan Jones,

Rs. 799.00

Lively, evocative and readable, sweeping from its origins in Florence in the mid-15 century to its culmination in the work of Rubens and Rembrandt in the 17, this work shows that the Renaissance invented eroticism as we know it and that the new ways of thinking about sex it engendered are crucial to understanding not only art but European culture as a whole. This is a sweeping history of the Renaissance artists through the lens of something that perhaps occupied their thoughts and influenced their art the most…sex.

The Thistle And The Drone

Akbar Ahmed,

Rs. 599.00

The U.S. declared war on terrorism in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. More than ten years later the results are decidedly mixed. In this work the author reveals a tremendously important yet largely unrecognised adverse effect of these campaigns. This is a groundbreaking and startling book.
