Images of a Lost World is a moving and important book. It shows how, from 1770 to 1945, major Polish artists depicted Jews as familiar figures integrated into the Polish landscape. By about 1650, more than half of world Jewry lived within the boundaries of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and as late as 1939 Jews still made up nearly 10 per cent of the reborn Polish state. Their world was destroyed for ever by the Nazi mass murder of Polish Jews. Here that world is brought vividly to life through over 250 works of art, many of them reproduced in colour. Halina Nelken, a well-known art historican, places these pictures in their artistic, social and political context. Images of a Lost World is a striking tribute to a complex civilization, the civilization of Polish Jewry. -- from back cover.

The Lost World of the Moa investigates one of the richest and most unusual faunas in the world: one that thrived in isolation for 80 million years, but in the past two millennia has been reduced to a shadow of its former glory. In one of the most dramatic extinctions of modern times, half of these species were removed from the planet forever- including the moas, those famous giant, flightless birds found only in New Zealand. Trevor Worthy and Richard Holdaway summarise all that is at present known about the various species of moa, and reconstruct their life and ecology. Then they discuss Haast's eagle, the only predator of adult moa. Paying particular attention to the more interesting and unique forms known only or largely from the fossil record, Worthy and Holdaway describe the primary herbivores, the top predator and other species. These are placed in the context of the total fauna, where ducks, gruids, and even bats followed an evolutionary path towards flightlessness. Wonderful as these species were, most were ill prepared to face the immigrant predators - ; first, rats brought by human visitors; then humans themselves and their other mammals. Copiously illustrated and carefully documented from the most current scientific research, this book reconstructs a fascinating evolutionary experiment that survived all manner of climatic and geological change, only to succumb on contact with the outside world.
These are placed in the context of the total fauna, where ducks, gruids, and even bats followed an evolutionary path towards flightlessness.
