"SHE'S YOURS." Two handwritten words changed Dr. Greg Hamilton's playboy lifestyle forever. From the moment he found his baby girl on the doorstep, she held his heart in her tiny hands.
Juggling fatherhood and a busy practice wasn't easy, so when the shy and lovely Jane Dale proposed she be baby Joy's nanny, Greg didn't question his luck....
Jane's pulse beat fast when she faced the man who'd supposedly seduced and left her sister. When she'd joined his household under false, she hadn't expected her niece's father to be caring, honest ... and much too attractive. Would her deception cost her the child and the man of her heart?
"New York" brings together painter Alex Katz's most striking images of his hometown and the dear friends with which he made it his own. Coming of age during the triumph of the New York School of painting, Katz synthesized its influences with wide-ranging interests shared by many of the New York School poets. Of the more than 40 paintings and aquatints gathered here, many depict that distinguished circle, as well as the iconic skyline where they changed the world. Katz is best known as a painter of people, and the wide cross-section of portraits here demonstrates the variety he brings to the genre, along with dramatic variations in scale, abrupt cropping and subtle artifices such as luxuriant backdrops that turn out to be earlier Katz paintings. Along with an essay and interview, "New York" includes an extraordinary selection of poems from friends of the artist, including some of the most important American poets of the late twentieth century, among them Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch, John Ashbery and Robert Creeley. Katz was born in Brooklyn in 1927 and studied at the Cooper Union and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. His work has been the subject of nearly 200 international solo exhibitions.
Regional transformation has emerged as a major topic of research during the past few decades, much of it seeking to understand how a region changes into a zone of conflict or cooperation and how and why some regions remain in perpetual conflict. Although the leading theoretical paradigms of international relations have something to say about regional order, a comprehensive treatment of this subject is missing from the literature. This book suggests that cross-paradigmatic engagement on regional orders can be valuable if it can generate theoretically innovative, testable propositions and policy-relevant ideas. The book brings together scholars from the dominant IR perspectives aiming to explain the regional order issue through multidimensional and multi-causal pathways and seeking meeting points between them.
Using insights from IR theory, the contributors offer policy-relevant ideas which may benefit conflict-ridden regions of the world.
