After several pages of prologue summing up 18th century highlights--especially the rise in importance of geometry--some forty pages cover 1784-1916, focusing on the heavily fenestrated high-rises of the Chicago School and the iron and glass pavilions of Europe. The chapter spanning 1892-1925 concentrates on the many disputes over the trajectory of modernism: Nieuwe Kunst, Stile Liberty, Jugendstil, and Art Nouveau, all arguing the direction that the boom of prisons, hospitals, schools, town halls, and other institutional buildings would take. Three more time divisions follow and a concise compendium of architect biographies ends the volume. Along with an array of great pictures (par for Taschen), Gossel and Leuthauser--both active in the private sector--add a strong prose style attentive to debates among architects and the socioeconomic stage on which architects act.

Miershas written extensively about the slave trade of days past. Here she looks at the period from 1919 to 2000, during which she says the definition of slavery was stretched to cover so many practices that the term became almost meaningless, many of those practices were generally condemned internationally, and contemporary forms of slavery became more widespread and pernicious. She highlights both the campaign against the abuses by non-government organizations, and the efforts by governments to avoid action and evade criticism.

Winner of the American Sociological Association PEWS Award (1995) for Distinguished Scholarship The Long Twentieth Century traces the epochal shifts in the relationship between capital accumulation and state formation over a 700-year period. Giovanni Arrighi masterfully synthesizes social theory, comparative history and historical narrative in this account of the structures and agencies which have shaped the course of world history over the millennium. Borrowing from Braudel, Arrighi argues that the history of capitalism has unfolded as a succession of "long centuries"—ages during which a hegemonic power deploying a novel combination of economic and political networks secured control over an expanding world-economic space. The modest beginnings, rise and violent unravel-ing of the links forged between capital, state power, and geopolitics by hegemonic classes and states are explored with dramatic intensity. From this perspective, Arrighi explains the changing fortunes of Florentine, Venetian, Genoese, Dutch, English, and finally American capitalism. The book concludes with an examination of the forces which have shaped and are now poised to undermine America's world power.

The fiction and drama of Gogol, now widely read in English, have delighted, puzzled, and inspired Russian critics for nearly a century and a half. In this anthology, Robert A. Maguire offers to English-speaking readers a selection of the impressive critical achievement that the writings of Gogol have stimulated. Each of the eleven essays is at once a fresh contribution to the study of Gogol and an example of one major school of criticism cultivated in contemporary Russia.
