Muravchik, Joshua
Socialism was man's most ambitious attempt to supplant religion with a doctrine claiming to ground itself in 'science'. Indeed, no religion ever spread so far so fast. Yet while socialism had established itself as a fact of life by the beginning of the 20th century, it did not create societies of abundance or give birth to 'the New Man'. Each failure inspired new searches for the path to the promised land: revolution, communes, social democracy, Communism, Fascism, Third World socialism. None worked, and some exacted staggering human tolls. Then, after two hundred years of wishful thinking and fitful governance, socialism suddenly imploded in a fin du siecle drama of falling walls and collapsing regimes. This book traces this fiery trajectory through sketches of the thinkers and leaders who developed the theory, led it to power, and presided over its collapse. Muravchik's accomplishment in 'Heaven on Earth' is to tell a story filled with character and event while at the same time giving us an epic chronicle of a movement that tried to turn the world upside down -- and for a time succeeded. 417pp.

Englert, Klaus
Spanish museum architecture has experienced a marked upturn since the 1990s, fired in part by the worldwide acclaim for Frank O. Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Spanish architects have designed unique museums that have changed the look of whole towns, from Rafael Moneo's Museo Nacional de Arte Romano in Merida to the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon in Leon in Castille, built by the Madrid architects Mansilla + Tunon. Moneo, who recently completed the annexe for the Museo del Prado in Madrid, may still be the leading figure in Spanish architecture, but architects like Mansilla and Tunon (who trained under Moneo), are now attracting attention internationally as well as in Spain, as are even younger talents who have just left architecture school. Spanish architects use a wide variety of formal languages, yet there are some characteristics that apply to them all: they are uninterested in Postmodernist games; the modern reinterpretation of regional building traditions is prominent in their practice; they are sensitive to particular features of the environment and topography. Kenneth Frampton observed in this context that Spanish architecture essentially runs counter to the globalisation tendencies that are increasingly reducing architectural form to a comfortable (yet formulaic) aesthetic product. This book, which makes an excellent museum guide, shows that this tendency is particularly conspicuous in the new museums, and confirms the world-class nature of new Spanish architecture. Klaus Englert studied philosophy and German. He was academic adviser to the Zollverein development company in Essen. He has worked for several years as free-lance culture correspondent and architecture critic for the Suddeutsche Zeitung, the Neue Zurcher Zeitung and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. 199pp.

Edited By Whicher,J.T. And Evans,S.W.
Our understanding of inflammation has increased rapidly in recent years, due in large part to the impact of molecular biology and gene identification and cloning. This book brings together ideas from a number of different biochemical disciplines which are frequently not integrated. The first chapter gives a visual overview of the subject; the remaining chapters are organized into three themes: the affector molecules, the regulatory components and the processes of inflammation itself. This book is aimed at the busy physician or pathologist who wants to be up-to-date with recent developments in immunology as they affect the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. 313pp.N.B.Spine slightly faded.
