A wooden horse in the archaeological site of Troy, plastic “Greek” statues on the seabed, resin columns at the Roman Forum, painted copies of Altamira and Lescaux grottos, Tutankhamun’s tomb in a casino of Las Vegas, fake Roman fortresses with legionnaires and gladiators, “Etruscan” vases in a hotel in Milan, Valentino’s creations on display in a Roman monument, voyeuristic attractions at Pompeii, ancient and new thermal baths with Roman-style treatments, “real” Roman wines produced in archaeological sites, and shows, plays of light, cocktails and fashion parades, a lottery for spending winter solstice at Newgrange . . . Museums and archaeological areas host all the contradictions of late modern society. Consumerism, media, advertising and virtual reality transform the relationships between archaeology, tourism, collective imagery and political identity. We are witnesses to the success of archistar museums, “event” exhibitions, sensorial and virtual tourism, archaeotrekking and archaeodiving, even tourism of the non-existent. Authenticity itself takes on a different meaning when finds and monuments are not original or are exhibited in theme parks, hotels or subway stations. This book is an innovative, critical and stimulating appraisal of the situation.

Cultural Writing. African American Studies. If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, Carol Gee's hilarious handbook chronicles a galaxy of issues in a tone that is decidedly down to earth. From accessories to the Zen of layaway, Gee's humorous yet poignant musings explore the A to Z of women's lives. "At the beauty shop, we learned many things. We learned that the little old ladies with blue hair were not born that way, and that the lady whose hair always looked perfect wore a wig. My sister and I also learned the importance of uplifting one another as women, with the dignity found in decent, honest work. We learned that being a woman was not always easy"-from THE VENUS CHRONICLES.
