    This multidisciplinary volume chronicles the iconography of sugar, slavery, and the landscape of Jamaica from the beginning of British rule in 1655 to the aftermath of emancipation in the mid-nineteenth century. It provides new perspectives on art, music, religion, and performance in Jamaican society and highlights the role of artistic culture in the resistance mounted by the enslaved. Through its central figure, Jewish Jamaican artist Isaac Mendes Belisario (1795-1849), the book also offers new insight into the Jewish diaspora in the Caribbean.At the book's core is Belisario's remarkable series of lithographs, Sketches of Character (1837- 38), the earliest visual representation of the Afro-Jamaican masquerade form Jonkonnu (or John Canoe).

    Masks and figural sculptures are the most familiar examples of the visual culture of Oceania, yet they provide only a glimpse of the fascinating art of this diverse region. Artisans of the Pacific Islands and Australia have produced objects ranging from stained and beaten fabric, rock engravings, and woven containers to tattooed and painted bodies, drawings on sand and paper, and contemporary installation art. This survey looks at the full range of objects created over several millennia, spanning the settlement of Oceania in the prehistoric period to the present day.Lavishly illustrated and encyclopedic in scope, this landmark book places the art of Oceania in its comprehensive and often complex historical context. Essays by leading scholars offer a fresh approach to archaeological findings; the impacts of migration, trade, warfare, and colonization; the influence of materials, ritual, dance, and religion; and the roles of photography, tourism, nationalism, and popular culture. Featuring a rich selection of previously unpublished materials and accompanied by commentary from contemporary practitioners, Art in Oceania: A New History is essential reading, offering an important reinterpretation of existing scholarship, and a dynamic introduction to Oceanic artistic traditions in the 21st century.

    While acknowledging the continuity of the technology associated with Maori weaving and plaiting brought to Aotearoa by Maori ancestors, this volume celebrates innovation and the development of weaving and plaiting as modern art forms. The text showcases contemporary art works by some of Aotearoa's Maori expert weavers. The art is organized into two distinct categories: whatu, a form of finger weaving using warps and wefts, and raranga, the interlacing of left-and right-hand strands. The book is published by Huia Publishers in New Zealand and distributed in the US of the U. of Washington Press. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
