Since the 1960s Dorothy Iannone has been making oversized figurative paintings populated with a psychedelic, utopian mix of characters, objects and ornamental themes. Her work, much of it created for, with or about her one-time lover Dieter Roth, developed in the context of the experimental 60s, and years later, her unbowed expressiveness and vitality continue to inspire a new generation, including the curators of the 2006 Whitney Biennial. In this monograph Kunsthalle Wien contrasts her work with that of Lee Lozano, whose work will be shown along with Iannone's at the museum this season. Iannone and Lozano are very different, but Iannone's broad-minded messages of love and Lozano's caustic, hard-core eruptions both use uncompromising styles that combine graphics and comics-like gesture with texts. Both artists also began their careers far ahead of their time and appear today to have been precursors of many contemporary trends.

Surgeon, VP of The Explorer's Club, veteran of Everest climbs (such as the one documented in INTO THIN AIR, on which he was attending physician). NASA consultant and the world's foremost extreme doctor, Ken Kamler knows what happens when bodies are pushed to their limits and beyond. He has hung from ice crevasses and pushed himself into pitch-black underwater caves, and seen who survived and who didn't. There are those who can cut off their arms to save their lives and those who cannot. This captivating book takes readers into six environments: underwater, water surface, jungle, desert, high altitude and outer space. Kamler explores the body's reactions to heat, cold, pressure, starvation and exhaustion and reveals its miraculous survival strategies. Here is a scientific nail-biter that takes readers where no 'reality' television show who dare to go, and proves in intimate, harrowing and unforgettable detail what surival really means.

'Compelling' Ian McEwan 'Engrossing' Alan Johnson 'Essential' Robert Peston *THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER* Politics has changed. For decades Britain was divided between Left and Right but united in its belief in a two-party state. Now, with nationalism resurgent and mainstream parties in turmoil, stark new divisions define the country and the centre ground is deserted. Nick Clegg witnessed this change from the inside. Here he offers a frank account of his experiences and puts the case for a new politics based on reason and compromise. He writes candidly about the tense stand-offs within government and the decision to enter coalition with the Conservatives in the first place. He also lifts the lid on the arcane worlds of Westminster and Brussels, the vested interests that suffocate reform, as well as the achievements his party made despite them. Whatever your political persuasion, if you wish to understand politics in Britain today you cannot afford to ignore this book.

"A fast-paced account of Mt. Hood. For readers who are unfamiliar with the rugged and beautiful Hood River area, [Van Tilburg] balances its undeniable perils with the joys of its scenic wonders . . ." --Publisher's Weekly "Van Tilburg's dogged spadework in translating to the page the intricate essentials of his unique trade makes each breathtaking rescue literally come to life. Exhilarating take on the daily life of a unique brand of doctor." --Kirkus "As a medical doctor, a previously published author (Backcountry Snowboarding; Introducing Your Kids to the Outdoors), and an adventure-sports devotee himself, Van Tilburg is uniquely qualified to describe the fears, excitement, frustration, and rewards of these searches. He examines the high costs of search-and-rescue operations and provides an interesting overview of the debate on whether victims should be held responsible for some of these costs. Young adults will likely enjoy this introduction to the field of wilderness medicine. Filled with adventure and good advice." --Library Journal "Outdoors folk in Oregon have long benefited from Dr. Chris Van Tilburg's skills as an emergency doctor and his selfless devotion to rescuing injured hikers and climbers as a volunteer for his local mountain rescue service. Now his other great skill--as a writer--has brought these exciting tales to the country at large. Chris captures the excitement of a rescue with the passion of a true mountaineer, and does so in highly readable prose." --John Harlin III, Editor of The American Alpine Journal and author of The Eiger Obsession, Mount Rainier and The Climber's Guide to North America Christopher Van Tilburg, MD is an emergency room physician, a ski patrol doctor, an emergency wilderness physician, and a member of the Hood River Crag Rats, the oldest mountain rescue team in the country. When Dr. Van Tilburg's beeper goes off, the call may take him racing up a mountain peak to rescue an injured hiker, scaling a rocky ledge to intubate a hiker who has fallen over a cliff, into a blizzard to search for missing skiers, or to a mountain airplane crash scene for body recovery. Dr. Van Tilburg's work requires a unique combination of emergency medicine, survival skills, agility, and extreme sports. In Mountain Rescue Doctor, Van Tilburg shares personal stories of harrowing and suspenseful rescues and recoveries, including the recent Mount Hood disaster, which claimed the lives of three climbers. We learn about the tools and techniques of emergency wilderness medicine, as well as the feats of human strength and delicacy required to treat patients under extreme conditions. And finally, we confront some of the ethical challenges a wilderness physician faces in making tough choices about who can be saved and at what cost. Mountain Rescue Doctor is an exhilarating tour through the perils of nature and medicine.
