Plane crashes... by the hundreds. This was not a safe business. There was nothing to copy, no one to learn from. Nobody knew about metal fatigue and G forces. Nobody knew what damage hail could do to an airplane flying at 120 mph. Nobody knew what turbulence could do to an airplane. Nobody knew icing would kill the lift on wings. There were no gyro’s, no instruments, no navigation facilities, no beacons, no rules, no regulations, no aircraft standards and no airports in the early days. Just young men and their flying machines that would bet their lives to pioneer a mega billion dollar industry.

Nordic Orientalism explores the appropriation of Oriental imagery within Danish and Norwegian nineteenth-century nation-building. The project queries Edward Said'?s binary notion of Orientalism and posits a more complex model describing how European countries on the periphery ? Denmark and Norway ? imported Oriental imagery from France to position themselves, not against their colonial Other, but in relation to central European nations. Examining Nordic Orientalism across a century in the context of modernization, urbanization and democratization the study furthermore shows how the Romanticists? naive treatment of the Orient was challenged by increased contact with the "real" Orient.

The Old Testament Between Theology and History

From its inception at the time of the Enlightenment until the mid-twentieth century, the historical-critical method constituted the dominant paradigm in Old Testament studies. In this magisterial overview, Niels Peter Lemche surveys the development of the historical-critical method and the way it changed the scholarly perception of the Old Testament. In part 1 he describes the rise and influence of historical-critical approaches, while in part 2 he traces their decline and fall. Then, in part 3, he discusses the identity of the authors of the Old Testament, based on the content of the literature they wrote, demonstrating that the collapse of history does not preclude critical study. Part 4 investigates the theological consequences of this collapse and surveys Old Testament and biblical theology in its various manifestations in the twentieth century. An appendix includes a history of Palestine from the Stone Age to modern times, constructed without recourse to the Old Testament.

The Design Encyclopedia is a compendium of the world of modern design over the last century and a half. Compiled from a number of primary and secondary sources by the American author and design historian Mel Byers, in consultation with an international team of design experts, this illustrated design reference guide provides the essential framework for a field that continues to generate intense interest worldwide. In this volume are all the essential facts pertaining to modern design: furniture and product design, graphic design, objects designed by architects, and the various styles and schools of design of the late nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries. With 832 pages and more than 700 full-color illustrations presenting the last 130 years in the history of the design of furniture, lighting, fabrics, ceramics, glassware, metalware, objects in a range of other materials, and mechanical, electrical, and electronic appliances, as well as automobiles and some inventions, this essential reference supplants Mr. Byers's earlier overview of the history of design, published in 1994. It is, however, not merely larger than its predecessor but more comprehensive, easier to navigate, and keenly focused. Here design is considered in terms of its concrete application to functional objects, relating it to craft, decorative arts, and industrial design but distinguishing it from fine art and theory. There are separate entries for designers and craftspeople, design studios, consortiums and partnerships, noteworthy manufacturers, significant historical periods and styles, and materials. The various discrete entries are organized alphabetically, and are cross-referenced where applicable. Most of the full-color illustrations are drawn from the world-renowned design collection of The Museum of Modern Art; the remainder are drawn from the Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen in Munich and Hamburg. This invaluable publication is the one essential guide for the design professional, the student, and the interested observer of design in our time.
