In western culture, bats are frequently regarded as symbols of doom and darkness. Undoubtedly, some of the fear and superstition stems from an unfamiliarity with these mammals. In fact, bats are among the most fascinating of animals. They display a number of remarkable adaptations for their unique lifestyle; they are the only mammals equipped with wings, and they are able to fly and find food in total darkness. This handbook presents a comprehensive summary of facts concerning the 16 species of bats in British Columbia, eight of which occur nowhere else in Canada. With numerous drawings, the b

"Indian Renaissance: British Romantic Art and the Prospect of India" is the first comprehensive examination of British artists whose first-hand impressions and prospects of the Indian subcontinent became a stimulus for the Romantic Movement in England; it is also a survey of the transformation of the images brought home by these artists into the cultural imperatives of imperial, Victorian Britain. The book proposes a second - Indian - Renaissance for British (and European) art and culture and an undeniable connection between English Romanticism and British Imperialism. Artists treated in-depth

The nature of economic analysis underwent a profound change in the second half of the nineteenth century.

This set charts the crucial transition from classical to neo-classical economics. Texts from such significant figures as J. S. Mill, J. E. Cairns, J. N. Keynes, Nassau Senior, Henry Sedgwick and Alfred Marshall illustrate the gradual transformation of economics from the

Paul Mellon (1907--1999) assembled one of the world’s greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. In his memoirs he wrote of their “beauty and freshness… their immediacy and sureness of technique, their comprehensiveness of subject matter, their vital qualities, their Englishness.” This catalogue celebrating the centenary of Mellon’s birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-18th century t
