To many, the word Viking invites visions of violence. But plunder, rape and pillage do not tell the full story. In this fresh narrative history, Thomas Williams, a curator of the British Museum exhibition Vikings: Life and Legend, reframes the story of the Vikings. Weaving new academic research with an exploration of the physical remains and landscapes that the Vikings fashioned and walked, this book offers a vital evocation of a forgotten world, its influence on British language, literature, place names and folklore, its echoes in later history and its implications for the present.
The American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) exerted unique influence on the architecture of the first half of this century. This volume presents the whole range of Frank Lloyd Wrights extraordinarily prolific output and shows clearly how his view of the world was a common factor throughout the rich diversity of his oeuvre. From his early prairie houses to the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Frank Lloyd Wright saw man as the focal point of an architecture closely bound up with nature. Издание на английском, французском и немецком языках.
Frank Lloyd Wright: The Buildings, a companion volume to Rizzolis Frank Lloyd Wright: The Houses, features the great non-residential masterpieces of architecture by this American genius. Wrights major projects are here showcased, including such seminal works as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, California, Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois, Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, and Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. Included also is stunning archival imagery of the great demolished buildings, such as the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and Midway Gardens in Chicago, as well as inspiring visions conceived and drawn by Wright, among them The Baghdad Opera House and The Mile High Illinois, to name only a few. In Frank Lloyd Wright: The Buildings, extensive, all-new photography shows the buildings to an extent rarely seen (including such little-known gems as Beth Sholom Synagogue, Kalita Humphreys Theater, R. W. Lindholm Service Station, and many others) while rich text by author Alan Hess coupled with insightful essays by Wright scholars David G. De Long and Kathryn Smith uncover the great innovative richness of the master architects non-residential work, ultimately inviting a reevaluation of the architectural legacy of this almost mythical figure.
The Wright stuff The definitive publication on Americas greatest architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is widely considered to be the greatest American architect of all time; indeed, his work virtually ushered in the modern era and remains highly influential today. His wide-ranging and paradigm-shifting oeuvre is the subject of TASCHENs three-volume monograph that covers all of his designs (numbering approximately 1100), both realized and unrealized. Made in cooperation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, this collection leaves no stone unturned in examining and paying tribute to Wrights life and work. From his early Prairie Houses (typified by the Robie House) to the Usonian concept home and progressive living architecture buildings to late projects like the spiral Guggenheim Museum in New York and the development of his fantastic vision of a better tomorrow via his concept of the living city, all of the phases of Wrights career are painstakingly described and illustrated herein. Volume 1 covers the early Chicago years and the Prairie Houses, the period which provoked a profound influence on European architects. Wrights architectural work during these early years was mostly residential, as it would be throughout his career, and from his earliest work, Frank Lloyd Wright demonstrated a knowledge of and respect for natural materials. In the ten years betweeen 1896 and 1906 he developed and perfected the so-called prairie house. Wright believed the architect should have complete charge of architectural design, and for him this meant interior furnishings as well as exterior landscape. The 1908 Avery Coonley residence, the administration building for the Larkin Soap Company (1903-1905), and the Unity Temple (1905) are examples of major works from the period. The author: Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer became Frank Lloyd Wrights apprentice at the Taliesin Fellowship in 1949. In 1957, he attended the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris, returning in 1958 to continue his apprenticeship with Wright until his death in 1959. He remains at Taliesin to this day, as director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, a vice-president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and author of numerous publications on Wrights life and work.
Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was an English novelist and poet. The Trumpet-Major is one of Hardys most underrated and unpredictable works. Anne Garland, who lives with her widowed mother in a mill, has three suitors: the squires nephew Festus and the millers two sons, Robert and John. As the Wessex village prepares for possible invasion by Napoleons fleet, Anne finds her destiny increasingly tangled up with the events of history. For Robert is a sailor while John is a soldier, both with equal commitments to their country and their love for Anne.
Widely thought to be the greatest American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was a true pioneer, both artistically and technically. At a time when reinforced concrete and steel were considered industrial building materials, Wright boldly made use of them to build private homes. His prairie house concept - that of a low, sprawling home based upon a simple L or T figure - was the driving force behind some of his most famous houses and became a model for rural architecture across America. Wright`s designs for office and public buildings were equally groundbreaking and unique. From Fallingwater to New York`s Guggenheim Museum, his works are among the most famous in the history of architecture. About the Series: Every book in TASCHENs Basic Architecture Series features: approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans introductory essays exploring the architects life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography, and a map indicating the locations of the architects most famous buildings
Christian David, Baker Grinin Leonid E. Teaching and Researching Big History: Exploring a New Scholarly FieldAccording to the working definition of the International Big History Association. Big History seeks to understand the integrated history of the Cosmos, Earth, Life and Humanity, using the best available empirical evidence and scholarly methods. In recent years Big History has been developing very fast indeed. Big History courses are taught in the schools and universities of several dozen countries. Hundreds of researchers are involved in studying and teaching Big History. The unique approach of Big History, the interdisciplinary genre of history that deals with the grand narrative of 13.8 billion years, has opened up a vast amount of research agendas. Big History brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and merges it with the contemplative realms of philosophy and the humanities. It also provides a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History is a colossal and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompassing all the forms of existence and all timescales. Unsurprisingly, Big History may be presented in very different aspects and facets. In this volume the Big History is presented and discussed in three different ways. In its first part. Big History is explored in terms of methodology, theories of knowledge, as well as showcasing the personal approach of scholars to Big History. The second section comprises such articles that could clarify Big Historys main trends and laws. The third part of this book explores the nature of teaching Big History as well as profiling a number of educational methods. This volume will be useful both for those who study interdisciplinary macroproblems and for specialists working in focused directions, as well as for those who are interested in evolutionary issues of Astrophysics, Geology, Biology, History, Anthropology, Linguistics and other areas of study.
This yearbook is the fourth in the series with the title Globalistics and Globalization Studies. The subtitle of the present volume is Global History & Big History. The point is that today our global world really demands global knowledge. Thus, there are a few actively developing multidisciplinary approaches and integral disciplines among which one can name Global Studies, Global History and Big History. They all provide a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History with its vast and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompasses all the forms of existence and all timescales and brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and the humanities. Global History is transnational or world history which examines history from a global perspective, making a wide use of comparative history and of the history of multiple cultures and nations. Global Studies express the view of systemic and epistemological unity of global processes. Thus, one may argue that Global Studies and Globalistics can well be combined with Global History and Big History and such a multi-disciplinary approach can open wide horizons for the modern university education as it helps to form a global view of various processes.
