Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award The real story behind the major motion picture The Monuments Men. The cast of characters includes Hitler and Goering, Gertrude Stein and Marc Chagall--not to mention works by artists from Leonardo da Vinci to Pablo Picasso. And the story told in this superbly researched and suspenseful book is that of the Third Reich's war on European culture and the Allies' desperate effort to preserve it. From the Nazi purges of "Degenerate Art" and Goering's shopping sprees in occupied Paris to the perilous journey of the Mona Lisa from Paris and the painstaking reclamation of the priceless treasures of liberated Italy, The Rape of Europa is a sweeping narrative of greed, philistinism, and heroism that combines superlative scholarship with a compelling drama. From the Trade Paperback edition.

'The Rape of Europa' is one of Titian's great masterpieces, a work charged with eroticism and classical mystique behind which lies a tale as compelling as the painting itself. Here Charles FitzRoy weaves a unique account of its history and the painting's movement following the rise and fall of the countries in which it has been housed. The story ranges from its place at the court of King Philip II of Spain, through French revolution and English intrigue, to its final move to America, engineered by the brilliant but devious art historian Bernard Berenson. This is the tale of how Titian's masterpiece has captivated kings, nobles, artists, and lovers alike for over four centuries since its conception and continues to do so today.

In this riveting, powerful narrative, Lynn Nicholas shows how children under the Nazis became mere objects available for use in the service of the totalitarian state. Nicholas recounts the euthanasia and eugenic selection, racist indoctrination, kidnapping and “Germanization,” mass executions, and slave labor to which the Nazis subjected Europe’s children. She also captures the uprooted children’s search for their families in the aftermath of the war. A disturbing and absolutely necessary work, Cruel World opens a new chapter in World War II studies. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This thesis considers how ancient authors narrate the story of Europa's rape in such a way as to "place their own mark" on the myth. In chapter one, I explore aspects of the Europa myth that often do not appear in the larger extant works such as Europa's function in religion, the archaeological representations of her rape, and the rationalisation of the myth, etc. Chapter two provides the audience with the basic outline of the story so that it will be equipped to appreciate the changes each writer makes to the story. As well, the development of the Europa myth over time is considered here. Outlined in chapter three is the approach (i.e. the use of traditional and new tools of literary criticism) I take to investigate the works offered by the ancient writers, beginning first with Moschus' account. An appreciation of the techniques Moschus incorporates is presented in chapter three while in chapter four the poet's elaboration of the ekphrasis and the inclusion of an embedded narrative are examined. The next three chapters (5, 6 and 7) look at Horace's and Ovid's (two) treatments of the rape of Europa, and chapter eight focusses on the versions of later Greek writers, Achilles Tatius, Lucian and Nonnos. Finally, in chapter nine conclusions are made about the various rape narratives of Europa, especially about trends in the myth's treatments, links and contrasts between versions, and the variety which each writer adds with regard to form, description, tone and characterisation. This investigation sheds new light on how ancient authors, when faced with a long tradition of myth telling, go about creating a fresh and entertaining story.
