"Critics pronounced the spy novel dead after the fall of the Berlin Wall; The Poet Game shows that it is alive and well and living in Manhattan. The voice is spare, clean, and insightgul. I was reminded of classic noir - there is a kind of murderous narcissism that belongs both to that genre and to the world of intelligence, and Salar Abdoh captures it brilliantly."- Ioin McNamee, author of Resurrection Man.

Some notes, underlining and highlights throughout. 227 pp. including index. Brown covers with orange titling. Strong binding. "The Professional Stranger introduces an ethnographic perspective on the study of human life. Ethnography's goal is defined as the acquisition of an ability to interpret events as do members of some group. The perspective is further explored by contrasting ethnographyu with more traditional hypothesis testing approaches in the social sciences. Numerous examples are used, drawn for the most part from the author's field experiences in South India and with urban U.S. heroin addicts. While not intended as a methodological cookbook, several problems in ethnographic interfviewing and observation are discussed. Throughout, there is a concern with the difficult task of providing systematic documentation of key ethnographic conclusions."Trade Paperback. Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall..

13 Barzini, Luigi The Italians
New York, New York, U.S.A. Atheneum 1979 0689705409 / 9780689705403 Paperback Very Good 
352 ppg including index and maps. Clean overall. Top right front cover bumped. "In this consummate portrait of the Italian people, bestselling author, publisher, journalist, and politician Luigi Barzini delves deeply into the Italian national character, discovering both its great qualities and its imperfections. Barzini is startlingly frank as he examines "the two Italies": the one that created and nurtured such luminaries as Dante Alighieri, St. Thomas of Aquino, and Leonardo da Vinci; the other, feeble and prone to catastrophe, backward in political action if not in thought, "invaded, ravaged, sacked, and humiliated in every century." Deeply ambivalent, Barzini approaches his task with a combination of love, hate, disillusion, and affectionate paternalism, resulting in a completely original, thoughtful, and probing picture of his countrymen."Trade Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

14 Belford, Barbara Violet : The Story of the Irrepressible Violet Hunt and Her Circle of Lovers and Friends - Ford Madox Ford, H. G. Wells, Somerset Maugham, and Henry James
New York, NY, U.S.A. Simon & Schuster 1990 0671643517 / 9780671643515 Hardcover As New As New Jacket 
The subtitle aptly describes Columbia University journalism professor Belford's biography of British novelist Violet Hunt (1862-1942). The daughter of a landscape artist and a writer, she came of age among the Pre-Raphaelites, her way strewn with literary plenipotentiaries: her diary, begun when she was 14, features such family friends as John Ruskin and Oscar Wilde. Hunt, called by one crony "a woman made for irregular situations," was drawn by her love of flirtation and intrigue into an affair at 22 with George Boughton, married and 30 years her senior. Diaries discovered by Belford fill in details of her painful affair with Oswald Crawfurdsp ok.g , from whom she evidently contracted syphilis. The biography deftly handles her most important relationship--with Ford Madox Ford--and her contradictory desire for sexual freedom and respectability. While giving Hunt her due as a writer (she wrote 17 novels and many short stories), Belford rightly concentrates on her subject's zest for unconventional love and life. Lavender and plum boards with silver lettering on spine. Appears to be first (not stated).Hard Cover. As New/As New.
