In the first half of the 20th century, Mexico was home to a burgeoning of art comparable in energy to the political revolution that shook the country between 1910 and 1920. This surge of artistic activity is the subject of this compelling new book, which presents the work of Mexican artists—from the social-realist painters Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros to the photographers Agustin Jimenez and Manuel Alvarez Bravo—alongside that of their international contemporaries, figures as diverse as Philip Guston, Josef and Anni Albers, and Edward Burra.Illustrated with some 150 striking images, Adrian Locke’s incisive text explores the artistic documentation of the dramatic changes wrought by the revolution, the government’s role in employing artists to promote its reforms, the emergence of a native modernism, and the remarkable contribution of European and American artists and intellectuals, including Eisenstein, Trotsky, and Andre Breton, to Mexico’s cultural renaissance.
Tax compliance is currently a topical issue, especially in developing countries, as governments seek ways to improve efficiency in tax revenue collection to finance their budgets. SMEs are the majority business taxpayers in most developing countries and thus their compliance levels directly impact on the governments' tax revenue collection. This study investigated the determinants of tax compliance in SMEs, focusing on how tax knowledge and compliance costs affect tax compliance behaviour of SMEs in Zimbabwe. The main objectives of the study were to investigate how business conditions of SMEs, perceptions of SME operators, levels of tax knowledge and compliance costs can affect SMEs’ tax compliance behaviour. The results indicated that SMEs face unique business conditions which cause them to bear high tax compliance burdens. The perceptions of SME operators about tax fairness and government spending greatly affect their tax compliance decisions. The study found tax knowledge to have no correlation with tax registration compliance but weak negative correlations with filing compliance. Compliance costs were found to have negative correlations with tax compliance.

Charles Dickens is pre-eminently the novelist of the hearth and the home. In his own days, Dickens was regarded as a radical, i.e, as a social reformer who was dissatisfied with the slow course of legislation, one who wanted to bring about rapid and radical changes to give liberty and voice to the majority of the people. But he never desired a political revolution of a thorough kind. As a social reformer, Dickens strikes us today more a conservative than a radical or even progressive. This book discusses two of his great works- David Copperfield and Great Expectations. In David Copperfield, he treats particularly evils of child labour and the reforms of school. It contains a large deal of autobiography. It is often considered to be his master piece. Great Expectations shows the evils of city life and man’s search for materialistic world which ends with disillusionment. Pip’s search for lavish life style ends tragically.This book critically evaluates major incidents, episodes , characters, and themes of these two novels. This book will be helpful to the students and researchers for detail studies.
