Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts by Joel M. Hoffman
Book DescriptionThe Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts, founded in 1986 and now published by The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, explores themes relating to The Wolfsonian collection and to the visual language of objects. It conveys to readers the power of design and shows how design shapes and reflects human values and experience. The ten essays in this volume of The Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts focus on the collection of The Wolfsonian-Florida International University in Miami Beach, Florida, which includes paintings, furniture, decorative arts, industrial design, and ephemera from 1885 to 1945. The book consists of an analytical overview of the collection by guest editor Joel Hoffman, six essays that explore design and national identity in Europe from 1890 to 1945, and three essays that look at American visual culture in the 1930s. Considering a range of topics--including the eroticized iconography of male workers in American art, the "Stalin style" in everything from ceramics to public works, and three generations of Hungarian furniture designers--the essays offer a thought-provoking reconsideration of the modern era. Published by The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, Miami Beach, Florida.

The Bible Doesn't Say That succinctly explains each misunderstanding, detailing the nature of what went wrong and offering insight into the original meaning of the world's most popular book.
Bible's Cutting Room Floor, Hardback (September 2014)
Explains that: The Book of Genesis tells you about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, but not what happens to them after they get kicked out; The Bible presents Abraham, the father of monotheism, but doesn't explain how he came to reject idolatry; and Today's Bible contains only 150 Psalms, but there used to be more.

A highly entertaining history of the Hebrew language and its contributions to all languages. Very well written and charming.
