These important fortifications, erected by the Hospitallers during the 15th century to face the growing Ottoman Turkish threat, vary considerably from those in the Middle East. Despite there being many visible remains of fortifications in Cyprus, Greece, and the Aegean, few studies exist of these areas compared to the fortifications of the Holy Land. Providing numerous architectural plans, maps, and color illustrations, this book seeks to redress this imbalance... more...

Following Fortress 21: 'Crusader Castles in the Holy Land 1097–1192', this book examines the design, development and defensive principles of some of the best-known Crusader fortifications... more...

This edited volume explores the issues of cultural reciprocity between Europeans and South Asians during the crucial period from 1760 to 1860. In doing so, prevailing assumptions about these complex relationships are examined. Part I examines a variety of "themes" in reciprocal encounter, such as class structures, urban landscape, Anglo-Muslim cooperation and debates on indigenous values. Part II deals with the "persons" important to the process of reciprocity and discursive interdependence, such as orientalists, missionaries, Indian... more...

Description: This collection contains studies written by art historian James Ackerman over the past decade. Whereas Ackerman's earlier work assumed a development of the arts as they responded to social, economic, political, and cultural change, his recent work reflects the poststructural critique of the presumption of progress that characterized Renaissance and modernist history and criticism. In this book he explores the tension between the authority of the past--which may act not only as a restraint but as a challenge and stimulus--and the potentially liberating gift of invention. He examines the ways in which artists and writers on art... more...

Description: Many concrete structures and elements of concrete infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) have exceeded their original design lives and are deteriorating to an extent where they are becoming dangerous. This breakdown can be internal or not obvious and therefore becomes evident only through detailed testing. Older methods of testing often involved damaging the structure, but Volume One of this two-volume set provides a comprehensive review of the vital subject of the latest non-destructive evaluation of reinforced concrete structures. It provides an overview of deterioration and reviews classic testing methods as well.

Description: The relationship of humans to computers can no longer be represented as one person in a chair and one computer on a desk. Today computing finds its way into our pockets, our cars, our appliances; it is ubiquitous -- an inescapable part of our everyday lives. Computing is even expanding beyond our devices; sensors, microcontrollers, and actuators are increasingly embedded into the built environment. In Architectural Robotics, Keith Evan Green looks toward the next frontier in computing: interactive, partly intelligent, meticulously designed physical environments. Green examines how these "architectural robotic" systems will... more...

Description: The world's housing markets have seen the sharpest slowdown in prices and transactions for over a generation - nowhere more than in Britain. So what can the property industry learn from the experience? This book, by property writer Graham Norwood, sets out the signals that were appearing from 2005 onwards as the foundations of the industry began to crack. He asks: why were they missed? Why did so few people speak out against gluts of apartments in major city centres targeted at falling numbers of investment buyers? Did we not know or care that property scams were becoming rife? Could we not see at least some alarm signals from the problems... more...
