    This volume was published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at the Rubin Museum of Art, New York City, from May 13 to September 19, 2011. The Naxi people are an ethnic minority in Yunnan Province, in southwestern China, and their art and culture are introduced here mostly through artifacts collected by Roosevelt on his travels to the region in 1939, when he was 19, and Joseph Rock, who lived among the Naxi from 1922 to 1949. Introducing the catalogue are essays on such topics as Quentin Roosevelt's legacy, the Dongba religion, Naxi women and the Dongba tradition, and Joseph Rock's rather harrowing experiences living in Lijiang. The volume, which is beautifully illustrated with color photos and plates, is oversized: 9.25x12.25".

    Media mix (known as 'convergence' in the West) is the proliferation of content across multiple media forms, from movies and TV to books, comics, video games, and toys. Steinberg (film studies, Concordia University) presents a history of media mix, arguing that the emergence of Japanese TV animation in the 1960s as a system of interconnected media and commodity forms was a major turning point and inspiration for the development of media mix. There is special focus on the animated TV series Astro Boy. The book sheds light on the global travel of anime and its associated media forms, such as manga, video games, figurines, cards, novels, and live-action films, and explores the social and economic ramifications of the history of anime. The book is illustrated with b&w Japanese advertisements. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    Nuclear bombs and geopolitical controversy are often the first things associated with North Korea and its volatile leader Kim Jong-II. Yet behind the secretive curtain of this isolated nation also lies a little-known and slowly expanding world of art.Art Under Control in North Korea is the first Western publication to explore the state-controlled role of art in North Korea. This timely volume places North Korean art in its historical, political, and social contexts, with a discussion on the state system of cultivating and promoting artists and an examination of the range of art produced, from painting and calligraphy to architecture and applied art. Portal offers an incisive analysis that compares the dictatorial control exerted over artists by North Korean leaders to that of past regimes. She also examines the ways in which archaeology has been employed for political ends to legitimize the present regime.Art Under Control in North Korea is an intriguing and vibrant volume that explores the creation of art under totalitarian rule and the ways art can subvert a dictatorial regime.
