The aim of this work has been to sketch the various periods and styles of architecture with the broadest possible strokes, and to mention, with such brief characterization as seemed permissible or necessary, the most important works of each period or style. Extreme condensation in presenting the leading facts of architectural history has been necessary, and much that would rightly claim place in a larger work has been omitted here. The danger was felt to be rather in the direction of too much detail than of too little. While the book is intended primarily to meet the special requirements...
The old civilisation of India was a concrete unity of many-sided developments in art, architecture, literature,
religion, morals, and science so far as it was understood in those days. But the most important achievement of
Indian thought was philosophy. It was regarded as the goal of all the highest practical and theoretical
activities, and it indicated the point of unity amidst all the apparent diversities which the complex growth of
culture over a vast area inhabited by different peoples produced.
For anyone who might still doubt the existence
of an overall European culture and its
coexistence in permanent dialogue with
national cultures, the history of restoration, as
presented by architect Jukka Jokilehto, should
be a convincing demonstration.
The modern concept of restoration, fruit of
a long historical process, was shaped in the
eighteenth century with the development of
Western historical thought and as a result of
tension between the rationalism of the
Enlightenment and pre-Romantic and Romantic
Resembling a large-scale comprehensive building design, an encyclopedia necessitates
the collaborative efforts of countless individuals and may take considerable time to
complete. It seems long ago that Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers invited me to edit a two-
volume encyclopedia about 20th-century architecture. In 1998, I was teaching the history
of architecture in a landmark 1890s Richardsonian Romanesque building at Lake Forest
College, a small liberal arts college north of Chicago.

For most of the relatively short history of scientific psychology the mere idea of an experimental
existential psychology would have been considered oxymoronic—in fact, such a juxtaposition
of experimental and existential psychology was probably never even considered
In speaking of art we often contrast the useful or mechanical arts with the Fine Arts; by these terms we denote
the difference between the arts which are used in making such things as are necessary and useful in civilized
life, and the arts by which ornamental and beautiful things are made.
The fine arts are Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Poetry, and Music, and though we could live if none of
these existed, yet life would be far from the pleasant experience that it is often made to be through the
enjoyment of these arts....
In gathering material for this handbook I have received valuable help from several friends, whose kindness
calls for grateful recognition. My thanks are due, in the first place, to the Rev. W. F. G. Sandwith, Rector of
St. Bartholomew-the-Great, and the lay custodians of the church, for the facilities which have allowed me to
examine the building in all its parts, and for the readiness with which they have given information, not
accessible elsewhere, on various points of its history and architecture.
The blending of fact and fancy which men call legend reached its fullest and richest expression in the golden
age of Greece, and thus it is to Greek mythology that one must turn for the best form of any legend which
foreshadows history. Yet the prevalence of legends regarding flight, existing in the records of practically
every race, shows that this form of transit was a dream of many peoples--man always wanted to fly, and
imagined means of flight.
In this age of steel, a very great part of the inventive genius of man has gone into devices intended to facilitate
transport, both of men and...

Our first chapter puts LTE into its historical context, and lays out its requirements and key
technical features. We begin by reviewing the architectures of UMTS and GSM, and
by introducing some of the terminology that the two systems use. We then summarize
the history of mobile telecommunication systems, discuss the issues that have driven the
development of LTE, and show how UMTS has evolved first into LTE and then into an
enhanced version known as LTE-Advanced. The chapter closes by reviewing the standardization
process for LTE....
Throughout its history, the Army has been manpower-intensive in most of its systems. The
combination of demographic changes (fewer young men), changed battlefield scenarios, and
advanced technologies in improved robotics, computers, and artificial intelligence (AI) suggests
both a need and an opportunity to multiply the effectiveness of Army personnel.
This is the most accessible architectural theory book that exists. Korydon Smith presents each common architectural subject—such as tectonics, use, and site—as though it were a conversation across history between theorists by providing you with the original text, a reflective text, and a philosophical text. He also introduces each chapter by highlighting key ideas and asking you a set of reflective questions so that you can hone your own theory, which is essential to both your success in the studio and your adaptability in the profession.
You have chosen an exciting moment in computing history to embark on a study of network
programming. Machine room networks can carry data at speeds comparable to those at which machines
access their own memory, and broadband now reaches hundreds of millions of homes worldwide. Many
casual computer users spend their entire digital lives speaking exclusively to network services; they are
only vaguely aware that their computer is even capable of running local applications.
In Chapter 1 we introduced the circuit-switched and the packet-switched domains and described why we need the IMS to provide rich Internet services. Chapter 2 introduced the players standardizing the IMS and deﬁning its architecture. In this chapter we will describe the history of the circuit-switched and the packet-switched domains.
