Wie verhAlt sich heute ein innovativer Architekt angesichts der elektronischen Revolution, die im Gange ist? Die vorliegende Monografie sucht relevante Antworten auf diese Frage am Beispiel von Peter Eisenman (*1932, seit 1963 BA1/4ro in New York), der durch sein Denken und Wirken zu den einfluAreichsten Protagonisten der gegenwArtigen Architekturdebatte gehArt. Anhand eines GesprAchs Eisenmans mit dem Autor, einer erhellenden Auswahl von entsprechenden Passagen aus seinen Schriften, einer exakten Analyse von Projekten von Eisenman Architects, die sich gezielt mit diesem Themenkreis befassen - wie etwa Virtual House -, ergibt sich eine faszinierende Darstellung, die durch weitgehend unpubliziertes Bildmaterial ergAnzt ist.
In the bestselling tradition of The World Is Flat and The Next 100 Years, The Accidental Superpower will be a much discussed, contrarian, and eye-opening assessment of American power. Near the end of the Second World War, the United States made a bold strategic gambit that rewired the international system. Empires were abolished and replaced by a global arrangement enforced by the U.S. Navy. With all the world's oceans safe for the first time in history, markets and resources were made available for everyone. Enemies became partners. We think of this system as normal-it is not. We live in an artificial world on borrowed time. In The Accidental Superpower, international strategist Peter Zeihan examines how the hard rules of geography are eroding the American commitment to free trade; how much of the planet is aging into a mass retirement that will enervate markets and capital supplies; and how, against all odds, it is the ever-ravenous American economy that-alone among the developed nations-is rapidly approaching energy independence. Combined, these factors are doing nothing less than overturning the global system and ushering in a new (dis)order. For most, that is a disaster-in-waiting, but not for the Americans. The shale revolution allows Americans to sidestep an increasingly dangerous energy market. Only the United States boasts a youth population large enough to escape the sucking maw of global aging. Most important, geography will matter more than ever in a de-globalizing world, and America's geography is simply sublime.

This is a concise and timely book on a hugely important topic - China in the twenty-first century. Peter Nolan argues that China faces a series of complex problems, most of which are the consequence of its rapid growth since the process of 'reform and opening up' began in the late 1970s. Among the challenges facing the leadership are issues of poverty and inequality, the global business revolution, the environment, the capability and role of the state, international relations, the Communist Party and the economy. The way in which it responds to these will determine the country's pattern of development for a long period ahead. While there are several paths open to it, Nolan argues that China has historically developed its own 'Third Way' between state and market, and that this is the only rational solution to the challenges it faces in the twenty-first century.
The Ship in the Balloon: The Story of Boston Scientific and the Development of Less-Invasive Medicine
Thirty years ago, a quiet revolution began in medicine when a pioneering radiologist named Charles Dotter demonstrated the ability to use a percutaneous catheter to dilate an obstructed vein. Since then, minimally invasive medicine has literally changed the practice of medicine and benefited millions of patients by offering treatments with less risk, cost, trauma and time. Manufacturer of a wide range of catheters, laparoscopic accessories and other novel less-invasive devices, Boston Scientific was one of the first companies in interventional medicine. Still led by co-founders Pete Nicholas and John Abele, Boston Scientific fought an uphill battle against traditional medicine and competition to become the world's largest company devoted to interventional medicine.
Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity: Studies on the Era of the French Revolution and Napoleon (American University Studies)
Hardcover book. Published by Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publi (1989)
Praise for Experimental Economics "The best account of all of the new developments [in economics] moves far beyond Peter Bernstein's two classic volumes, Capital Ideas and Against the Gods." --David Warsh, Boston Globe "This is a remarkable book that weaves the deep scientific roots of modern finance and modern financial institutions with humorous perspective and considerable wisdom. Few understand the pervasive and complex economic principles that govern our world of finance. Few are aware of the academic and scientific origins of financial practices and market instruments that are commonplace today. Ross Miller uses his experience and talents acquired as an experimental economist to help us understand a world that is contradictory, potentially dangerous, and paradoxical. He entertains us while doing it." --Charles R. Plott, Edward S. Harkness Professor of Economics and Political Science, California Institute of Technology "Dramatic new ways for buying and selling--spectrum auctions, e-commerce, derivatives--are the economics profession's contribution to the Information Revolution. This book explains how many of these innovations began with simple experiments at Caltech. The style is a refreshing combination--dramatic and fun to read, but also historically and scientifically accurate. So I can send one to my Dad, a salesman, and another to my girlfriend, a patent attorney." --Colin Camerer, Rea and Lela Axline Professor of Business Economics, California Institute of Technology "[Experimental Economics] is a provocative summary of recent decades of economic research. The investor who wants to know the theory behind the markets in which he trades, the economist who has been out of the academic mainstream for many years, and the interested general reader can spend many evenings mulling over the revolution in economics that has occurred since Smith's assumptions of market perfection were challenged. Mr. Miller makes mathematical finance relevant and sometimes even poignant. His book is a marvel of combining anecdote with theory all without so much as a single partial differential equation." --Andrew Allentuck, Globe and Mail (Toronto)
This is the first full scholarly study of rural politics in France during the Second Republic (1848-1952). The Revolution of 1848 and the subsequent liberation of political life changed the face of mass politics in rural France. Unprecedented numbers of French men and women participated in legal and illegal forms of political activity during a period of protracted crisis ultimately resolved by a military coup d'etat. Peter McPhee's book draws on hundreds of regional studies to examine the large-scale political mobilizations of right and left in the countryside, and offers a new synthesis and interpretation of these years. Dr. McPhee shows that rural politics were both more complex and more threatening to urban elites than has been generally recognized. This is a lucid and challenging analysis of a turbulent period in modern French history and its long-term social and political consequences.

Centered around a study of John, the beloved apostle, this book develops the tie between intimacy with God and the corresponding grace of hearing His voice.

Don't miss it!" --C. Peter Wagner, Chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute "This is a book we recommend wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, a wake-up call for a slumbering Church to abandon religiosity and come alive, to love God passionately, to reach out to help others, and to become passionate warriors for Christ." --John and Paula Sandford, co-founders, Elijah House International "This book takes us on a prophetic journey, cleverly navigating our way through scriptural principles.

Redemption is the story of animal sheltering in the United States, a movement that was born of compassion and then lost its way. It is the story of the 'No Kill' movement, which says we can and must stop the killing. But most of all, it is a story about believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.
This broad, panoramic view of Russian imperial society from the era of Peter the Great to the Revolution in 1917 sets forth a challenging interpretation of one of the world's most powerful and enduring monarchies. Beginning with an overview of imperial Russia's legal and institutional structures, Wirtschafter analyzes the "ruling" classes and service elites (the landowning nobility, the civil and military servicemen, the clergy) and then moves on to examine the middle groups (the raznochintsy, the commercial-industrial elites, the professionals, the intelligentsia) before turning to the peasants, townspeople, and factory workers. Wirtschafter argues provocatively that those very social, political, and legal relationships that have long been viewed as sources of conflict and crisis in fact helped to promote integration and to foster the stability that ensured Imperial Russia's survival. Social Identity in Imperial Russia will thus appeal to a wide range of readers interested in Russian history and culture, state building, and European social history.
Newly translated by Peter Constantine Edited and with an Introduction by Leo Damrosch The Essential Writings of Rousseau collects the best and most indispensable work of one of the world's most influential writers. A towering figure of Enlightenment thought, Jean-Jacques Rousseau was also one of that movement's most passionate and persuasive critics. His extraordinarily original observations on politics, education, and human nature were provocative in their day and remain resonant more than two hundred years after his death. Rousseau's 1762 treatise The Social Contract laid intellectual groundwork for both the American and French Revolutions, influencing such figures as Thomas Jefferson. An eloquent writer with profound insight into human psychology, Rousseau also penned one of the most compelling autobiographies ever written-the magisterial Confessions. The entirety of the first three books of that masterpiece along with the complete Social Contract are included in this indispensable volume.
