Author: 

Adams, Alexander

Credentials: 

Alexander Adams is a British artist and writer. He studied fine art and art history at Goldsmiths College, London. His art has been exhibited worldwide and is in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), National Museum Cardiff, Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), and other museums. His art criticism has been published in The Burlington Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Sculpture Journal, The Jackdaw, The British Art Journal, Apollo, Printmaking Today, Print Quarterly, and other outlets. His poetry has been published in anthologies, broadsides, and single-author volumes.

Adams is the author of Culture War, Iconoclasm: Identity Politics and the Erasure of History, Degas, Magritte, and Artivism.

Women & Art surveys the history of women in art and addresses the effects of feminist art history and art production. This book is among the first to offer a critical assessment of the role of feminism in art history and how it has presented and misrepresented women’s roles in art. Seeking to counterbalance overwhelmingly pro-feminist narratives, it relies on evidence from artists, statisticians, and historians to support individual women artists while remaining critical of feminism.

Begum Khaleda Zia: Portrait of a People’s Leader

Author: 

Khan, Q. M. Jalal, Professor of English (ret.) and Political Writer; K. M. A. Malik, Professor of Chemistry (ret.) and Political Writer

This book is about Bangladesh’s first female prime minister, Begum Khaleda Zia, who served three terms in office and achieved enormous popularity. Her charisma inexorably emanates from her sense of dignity, integrity, uncompromising principles, and commitment to freedom, independence, and sovereignty of Bangladesh--a new and small country bordering the larger India, which is always up to its hegemonic designs. Begum Zia (and her husband, President Ziaur Rahman) were able to keep foreign conspiracies at bay.

Predicting Gender Violence in India: A Counterintuitive Theoretical Approach (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Vasudevan, Shritha K., University of Florida

In this provocative new book, Shritha Vasudevan argues that feminist international relations (IR) theory has inadvertently resulted in a biased worldview, the very opposite of what feminist IR set out to try to rectify. This book contests theoretical presumptions of Western feminist IR and attempts to reformulate it in contexts of non-Western cultures. Vasudevan deftly utilizes the theoretical constructs of IR to explore the ramifications for India.

The Woman in Me: Willem de Kooning, Woman I-VI

Author: 

Clark, Marlene: Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, City College of New York, CUNY

Willem de Kooning’s six numbered Woman paintings have incited a maelstrom of critical controversy. At their debut in 1953, the critics were incensed by the ugliness of the images themselves and by the inclusion of vestiges of the figure in abstraction. Consequently, they questioned de Kooning’s attitude toward women and commitment to the Abstract Expressionist project.
