From the world-renowned photographer who for 32 years brought to sailors the adventure, mystery and beauty of the Seven Seas in North America's most-beloved sailing calendar, now comes a magnificent new work a-brim with the romance of Tuscany. The rolling hills, the medieval hill-towns, the luminous sky that inspired the masters of the Renaiscanc is one of nature's and man's most awe inspiring achievements. Photographer Ferenc Máté, a 30 year resident of Tuscany, captures it all throughout the seasons. From brooding castles, to dreamy farmhouses, from tiny hamlets to the endless open landscapes, Mr.Máté's images never cease to amaze-- they invite us to dream. Of course Tuscany has the world's best food and wine. So each month's date grid has an insert of the best dish of the season, and a link to the complete recipes. So buonviaggio and buon-appetito.

When thinking about the Mediterranean, Fernand Braudel's haunting words resound like an echo of the sea and its millenary history. From Prehistory until today, the Mediterranean has been setting, witness and protagonist of mythical adventures, of encounters with the Other, of battles and the rise and fall of cultures and empires, of the destinies of humans. Braudel's appeal for a long durée history of the Mediterranean challenged traditional views that often present it as a sea fragmented and divided through periods. This volume proposes a journey into the bright and dark sides of the ancient Mediterranean through the kaleidoscopic gaze of artists who from the Renaissance to the 21st century have been inspired by its myths and history. The view of those who imagined and recreated the past of the sea has largely contributed to the shaping of modern cultures which are inexorably rooted and embedded in Mediterranean traditions. The contributions look at modern visual reinterpretations of ancient myths, fiction and history and pay particular attention to the theme of sea travel and travellers, which since Homer's Odyssey has become the epitome of the discovery of new worlds, of cultural exchanges and a metaphor of personal developments and metamorphoses.

A series of poems centred on Britain's role in colonialism and Empire building. With reverberating lyrics and powerful imagery, Kipling writes of the ruthless means that were often employed to add nations to the glorious Empire. Though disturbing and unsettling in theme, Kipling's lyrical dexterity makes these poems strangely compelling reading.
