Myanmar: Ancient Burma Clashing with Modern Myanmar, Cynthia Bassett (Director)
6 Cynthia Bassett (Director) Myanmar: Ancient Burma Clashing with Modern Myanmar
Am Tech Video, Inc. 2006 DVD New 
New DVD. Still sealed in original shrink-wrap. No flaws or defects. Run time: 23 minutes.

From the director's website, "Wedged between five Southeast Asian countries, this photographic journey of Myanmar recalls a golden age which emerged over one thousand years ago: monasteries with crimson-robed monks, Mandalay's Buddhist scripture thought to be the world's largest book, and the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda gilded in sheets of gold. Moved by its beauty, Somerset Maugham's description, "like a sudden hope in the dark night of the soul," is an apt allegory for the country today. Another Englishman, George Orwell, immortalized Burma in his novels and you will see remnants of British colonialism in the hill station town where he served, deep in exotic teakwood forests. The irrepressible Irrawaddy River is the economic artery bisecting Myanmar. Travel by boat on the picturesque RV Pandaw and immerse yourself in the river culture, sharing food and festivals with natives from the country’s 67 separate ethnic groups. On Inle Lake where most swim before they walk and live in houses on stilts, watch the Intha people compete in boat races, rowing with their feet. You may ponder the future of this bewitching, fertile country which can feed its own population and ask if Myanmar’s authoritarian government will pull up a drawbridge to shield its celebrated civilization from the world."

Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1875, Potter, Russell A.
15 Potter, Russell A. Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1875
University of Washington Press 2007 0295986808 / 9780295986807 Paperback As New 
Bright, fresh softcover. No remainder marks; no flaws.

From the publisher's description: This book "illuminates the nineteenth-century fascination with visual representations of the Arctic, weaving together a narrative of the major Arctic expeditions with an account of their public reception through art and mass media. In a century that saw every corner of the globe slowly open to the examining eye of Western science, it was the Arctic - remote, mysterious, untamable - that most captured the imagination of artists and the public alike. Its impact could be seen in a range of visual media from fine art to panoramas, engravings, magic lantern slides, and photographs, as well as hybrid forms of entertainment in which Inuit were "exhibited" alongside a cabinet of assorted Arctic curiosities while Western gentlemen looked on."
