Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shore's legendary "Uncommon Places" has influenced more than a generation of photographers. Shore was among the first artists to take color beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, and his large-format color work on the American vernacular landscape inaugurated a vital photographic tradition. "Uncommon Places: The Complete Works," published by Aperture in 2005, presented a definitive collection of the landmark series, and in the span of a decade has become a contemporary classic. Now, for this lushly produced reissue, the artist has added nearly 20 rediscovered images and a statement explaining what it means to expand a classic series. Like Robert Frank and Walker Evans before him, Shore discovered a hitherto unarticulated vision of America via highway and camera. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise systems of gestures in composition and light through which a hotel bedroom or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance. An essay by critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology and elucidate his roots in Pop and Conceptual art. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shore's earlier series "American Surfaces" and "Amarillo: Tall in Texas." At age 14 Stephen Shore (born 1947) had his work purchased by Edward Steichen for The Museum of Modern Art, New York. At 17 Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971 at the age of 23 he became the first living photographer since Alfred Stieglitz 40 years earlier to have a one-man show at the Met. He has had numerous one-man shows, among others at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and The Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1982 he has been Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.

The central claim developed in this book is that disciplinary International Relations (IR) is identifiable as both an advanced colonial practice and a postcolonial subject. The starting problematic here issues from disciplinary IR's relative dearth of attention to indigenous peoples, their knowledges, and the distinctive ways of knowing that underwrite them. The book begins by exploring how IR has internalized many of the enabling narratives of colonialism in the Americas, evinced most tellingly in its failure to take notice of indigenous peoples. More fundamentally, IR is read as a conduit for what the author terms the 'hegemonologue' of the dominating society: a knowing hegemonic Western voice that, owing to its universalist pretensions, speaks its knowledge to the exclusion of all others.

Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shores legendary Uncommon Places has influenced a generation of photographers. Among the first artists to take colour beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, Shores large-format colour work on the American vernacular landscape stands at the root of what has become a vital photographic tradition over the past thirty years. Uncommon Places: The Complete Works is the definitive collection of this landmark series. An essay by noted critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by fiction writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology as they elucidate his roots in the pop and conceptual art movements of the late sixties and early seventies. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shores earlier series American Surfaces and Amarillo: Tall in Texas.

Like poison leaked from some acidic brain, this book will haunt you with the language and vision of the lost. For more than four decades, W. H. Pugmire has delighted and astonished his many devotees with vignettes of perfumed prose-poetry that rival the work of Baudelaire and Clark Ashton Smith. In this new collection, which contains both new and reprinted pieces, Pugmire once again stakes his claim to be the most accomplished prose stylist in contemporary weird fiction. Here we find the shades of Lovecraft, Poe and Oscar Wilde-that dandified British author whose life and work hover over this collection like a sea-mist. We explore the shadows spawned in Sesqua Valley... Providence, Rhode Island... and Gershom, a city of artistic exiles. The title work is an impressive sequence of prose-poems, each segment inspired by an entry in Lovecraft's Commonplace Book, fusing delicate prose-poetry with the terror that only the landscape of the fantastic imagination can elicit. This new collection includes all of the original works which first appeared in "The Tangled Muse," Wilum Pugmire's highly-limited (and now, out of print) omnibus, together with a number of newly-written and rather disturbing prose-poems that see their first publication here. The title work also appeared in "The Tangled Muse," but the author has added 10,000 additional words to it for this edition-most of the new material being a segmented sequel to J. Vernon Shea's "The Haunter of the Graveyard." "Uncommon Places" features cover artwork and interior illustrations by the fantastic Swiss artist, Gwabryel, specially commissioned for this edition.

Uncommon Ground Rethinking The Human Place In Nature

A controversial, timely reassessment of the environmentalist agenda by outstanding historians, scientists, and critics. In a lead essay that powerfully states the broad argument of the book, William Cronon writes that the environmentalist goal of wilderness preservation is conceptually and politically wrongheaded. Among the ironies and entanglements resulting from this goal are the sale of nature in our malls through the Nature Company, and the disputes between working people and environmentalists over spotted owls and other objects of species preservation. The problem is that we haven't learned to live responsibly in nature. The environmentalist aim of legislating humans out of the wilderness is no solution. People, Cronon argues, are inextricably tied to nature, whether they live in cities or countryside. Rather than attempt to exclude humans, environmental advocates should help us learn to live in some sustainable relationship with nature. It is our home.

In the broadest sense, stability describes a property which dictates that a sufficiently chosen sub-collection of objects–each internally indexed by some parameter and all belonging to some larger class of objects–eventually (as the internal index of each object is changed according to some predetermined rule) all share a specified property. For an example, asymptotic stability of solutions to ordinary differential equations is a familiar instantiation of this phenomenon. In that case, the collection of objects are taken to be the trajectories resulting from some dynamical system (each internally indexed by a time variable) and the sub-collection of objects are those trajectories initialized sufficiently close to a specified equilibrium point of the dynamical system. The property eventually shared by these objects (as the time variable is taken to approach infinity) is convergence of the trajectories to equilibrium. Common wisdom seems to hold that stability is not a particularly enigmatic notion in comparison to much of the rest of mathematics. On a surface level, this doesn’t seem too far off base–in most of the practical situations the topic commonly arises, stability is a relatively well-constrained and specific topic that has largely been resolved by existing theory. In this document, we will make a case for something like the opposite position. Namely, we will argue that: (1) stability–on a deeper level and as a more general phenomenon–is (implicitly) of central importance in a staggering array of mathematical fields, (2) is much more important, useful, and mysterious than simple, surface-level cases (like the one above) would first seem to suggest and, (3) is, in many cases, reasonably tractable using only mild extensions of existing mathematical machinery. In particular, we’ll give a variety of novel, original perspectives on how one ought to view stability and stabilizability; a number of new results concerning feedback stabilization for control systems; and a variety of strong and unexpected connections between stability and concepts in combinatorics, algebraic and finite geometry, number theory, and Ramsey theory.
