Hot Wheels Classic Redline Era by Angelo Von Bogart


Original Title: Hot Wheels Classic Redline Era

Combining candy-colored paint jobs with muscle car attitudes and southern California coo, Hot Wheels cars changed the toy world forever in 1968. For the next 10 years as millions of kids discovered the joy of these miniature marvels, one small characteristic came to define this radical die-cast era: the thin red line on the cars tires. Hot Wheels Classics: The Redline Era proudly showcases more than 500 spectacular color photos (so come of the finest cars of this groundbreaking time.) Sprinkled throughout the visual and historical feast, you'll enjoy the commentary from legendary car designer Larry Wood and other Mattel designers. More than 40 years of introduction, Hot Wheels cars have experienced a multitude of changes, incredible success, trials and tribulations, and ultimately crafted one of the greatest American toy stories of all time. Yet is one single feature from decades past that skill defines for many their greatest: the Redline.

Reception And The Classics by William Brockliss


Original Title: Reception And The Classics

This collection brings together leading experts in a number of fields of the humanities to offer a new perspective on the classical tradition. Drawing on reception studies, philology and early modern studies, the essays explore the interaction between literary criticism and the multiple cultural contexts in which texts were produced, discovered, appropriated and translated. The intersection of Realpolitik and textual criticism, poetic and musical aesthetics, and authority and self-fashioning all come under scrutiny. The canonical Latin writers and their subsequent reception form the backbone of the volume, with a focus on the European Renaissance. It thus marks a reconnection between classical and early modern studies and the concomitant rapprochement of philological and cultural historical approaches to texts and other works of art. This book will be of interest to scholars in classics, Renaissance studies, comparative literature, English, Italian and art history.

Classics Transformed by Christopher Stray


Original Title: Classics Transformed

This is the first book to give a general account of the transformation of classics in English schools and universities from being the amateur knowledge of the Victorian gentleman to that of the professional scholar, or from an elite social marker to a marginalized academic subject. The challenges to the authority of classics in 19th-century England are analyzed, as are the many and various ideological responses of its practitioners. The impact of university reform on the content and organization of classical knowledge is described in detail, with special reference to Cambridge. Chapters are devoted to the effects of state intervention, social snobbery, and democracy on the provision of classics in schools, and the dissensions within the bodies set up to defend it. The narrative runs clear up to the present, fully covering along the way the abolition of Compulsory Latin in 1960 and the absence of classics from the National Curriculum in 1988.

Sprague de Camp, H.L.Gold, Fritz Leiber, and Manly Wade Wellman to more recent tales by such towering modern talents as Peter S. Beagle, Terry Bisson, James P. Blaylock Suzy McKee Charnas, John Crowley, Tanith Lee, Michael Swanwick, Judith Tarr, Howard Waldrop, Jane Yolen, and Roger Zelazny. Just as Gardner Dozois's Modern Classics of Science Fiction has helped longtime fans and new readers alike discover the genre's finest short stories, so too shall this anthology allow readers to find in one volume more than two dozen masterworks of fantasy.
