Fang art is one of the most distinguished arts of Black Africa. Its masks, with their facial markings, abstract features and strong, elegant lines, were among the most influential in 20th century modern art. Fang figures, called Bieri, are renowned for their child-like proportions contrasted with a muscular, poised vigilance. Fang art also includes iron currency and other objects that exhibit the traditional African ability to making everyday functional objects things of artistic merit. Fang reviews these artifacts and their social, ritual or symbolic characters. Statuettes related to ancestors, dance masks of the various rites, insignia of power, headdresses and jewellery, decorated music instruments and everyday utensils, all have an amazingly varied aesthetic creativity, in harmony with their profuse world of beliefs and myths.

This image-filled book features outstanding works of Luba art from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Major themes to be addressed include the role of visual and performance arts in Luba traditional politics; the symbolism of the female image and why 'the king is a woman' for Luba; the instrumentality of royal insignia in politics, problem-solving, and healing; and the use of art objects in the creation and transmission of historical knowledge in both the Luba heartland and its peripheries. Case studies from the authors' long research among Luba, Tabwa, and related peoples of the Congo will illuminate the complex philosophical underpinnings of Luba thought and visual expression.

Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation...L'origine delle specie scritto dal naturalista inglese Charles Darwin, è una tra le opere cardine nella storia scientifica, e indubbiamente una delle più eminenti in biologia. Pubblicata per la prima volta il 24 novembre 1859, in essa Darwin spiega la sua teoria, secondo cui «gruppi» di organismi di una stessa specie si evolvono gradualmente nel tempo attraverso il processo di selezione naturale, un meccanismo che venne illustrato per la prima volta a un pubblico generico proprio grazie a questo libro.
