Korom Jr., Joseph J.
The skyscraper is an American invention that has captured the public's imagination for over a century. The tall building is wholly manmade and borne in the minds of those with both slide rules and computers. This is the story of the skyscraper's rise and the recognition of those individuals who contributed to its development. This volume is unique; its approach, information, and images are fresh and telling. The text examines America's first tall buildings - the result of twelve years of in-depth research by an accomplished and published architect and architectural historian.Over 300 compelling photographs, charts, and notes make this the ultimate tool of reference for this subject. Biographies woven throughout with period norms, politics and lifestyles help to place featured skyscrapers in context. Quite simply, there is no book like this. The text, carefully and insightfully written, is clear, concise, and easily digestible, the text being the product of well-documented original research written in an informative tone. "The American Skyscraper 1850-1940: A Celebration of Height" is a richly documented journey of a fascinating topic, and it promises to be a superb addition to libraries, schools of architecture, students of architecture, and lovers of art. 540pp.

Larsen, Robin; Larsen, Stephen
Trained in mythology, art, and psychology, Stephen and Robin Larsen explore romantic relationships to answer the question: "What do couples really want?" The biographers of their friend and colleague Joseph Campbell, the Larsens turn to myths as well as depth psychology to heal the wounds of gender wars. Their discussions with each other and interviews with five successful couples take readers deep into man-woman psychology and spirituality.

Edited By Johannsen, Lars and Pedersen, Karin Hilmer
Political and economic developments after the implosion of the Sovjet Union have not been easy, nor have outcomes been similar. In this book the different trajectories of political development in post-communist countries are traced through cases from within the post-communist region that exhibit maximum variation in terms of both background variables and outcome. Six countries - Kazakhstan, Geogia, Estonia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Poland - have been selected. Following the Tocquevillian tradition, a 'method' of indirect comparison where in-depth knowledge of a country based on linguistics and history is held up against existing concepts, six country specialists have drawn broad pictures of what characterises 'their' country in terms of political and economic reform, state building and nation building, at the same time placing developments within the international context. The book argues that the elite constellation along two dimensions - consensus about the direction of policy and institutions, and the extent of inclusion of elite interests in decision making - is specific to each country and points to the direction of future developments. 170pp.
