Publisher: C U P 2003 | 364 Pages | ISBN: 0521813492 | PDF | 3 MB

Envoys and Political Communication in the Late Antique West, 411-533
Examining the role of envoys from the establishment of the first "barbarian kingdoms" in the West, to the eve of Justinian's wars of reconquest, this study reveals how Roman imperial administration influenced new patterns of political interaction in the earliest medieval states. Close analysis of sources with special interest in embassies offers insight into a variety of genres: chronicles, panegyrics, hagiographies, letters, and epitaphs. The study will make a significant contribution to the developing field of ancient and medieval communication.

Measured Tones: The Interplay of Physics and Music,2nd Edition by Ian Johnston
English | Mar 1, 2002 | ISBN: 0750307625 | 420 Pages | PDF | 13 MB
There has always been a close connection between physics and music. From the great days of ancient Greek science, ideas and speculations have passed backward and forward between natural philosophers (physicists) and musical theorists. Measured Tones: The Interplay of Physics and Music, Second Edition explores the story of that relationship in an entertaining and user-friendly way.

Measured Tones: The Interplay of Physics and Music,2nd Edition
The book provides an easy-to-understand introduction to the physics involved in every stage of the music making process: from the very earliest experiments on vibrating strings and primitive sound makers to the latest concerns of digital sound recording, MP3 files, and information theory. At the same time, it examines the story of our developing concept of the universe we live in: from the ancient visions of a cosmos regulated by the music of the spheres to our current understanding of an expanding universe controlled by the laws of quantum mechanics and string theory. Running through all this is one recurring question – the so-called puzzle of consonance. Why do humans respond to music and musical sounds the way they do? It is the attempts by musicians and scientists through the ages to apply new knowledge to answer this question that gives this story its fascination.

Measured Tones should provide rewarding reading for any physics teacher or student who would like to know more about music and where it impinges on their subject as well as for anyone who is musically inclined.

The Invisible God: The Earliest Christians on Art by Paul Corby Finney
English | Sep 18, 1997 | ISBN: 0195113810, 0195082524 | 352 Pages | PDF | 47,7 MB

The Invisible God: The Earliest Christians on Art by Paul Corby Finney
This revisionist study challenges the received opinion that in its earliest manifestations Christianity was a form of religiosity opposed both on principle and in fact to the use of pictures. Paul Corby Finney argues that the well-known absence of Christian pictures before A.D. 200 is due to a complex interplay of social, economic, and political factors, and is not, as is commonly assumed, a result of an anti-image ideology. The book documents the origins of Christian art based on some of the oldest surviving Christian archaeological evidence, and it seeks to show how the Christian products conformed to the already-existing pagan types and models. This study will interest scholars and students in the fields of church history, ancient history, archaeology, art history, classics, and historical theology.

The Sexual History of London: From Roman Londinium to the Swinging City—Lust, Vice, and Desire Across the Ages

Catharine Arnold, "The Sexual History of London: From Roman Londinium to the Swinging City—Lust, Vice, and Desire Across the Ages"
English | ISBN: 0312600348, 1250015308 | 2011 | EPUB/MOBI | 384 pages | 3 MB

The Sexual History of London: From Roman Londinium to the Swinging City—Lust, Vice, and Desire Across the Ages
If Paris is the city of love, then London is the city of lust. From the bath houses of Roman Londinium to the sexual underground of the twentieth century and beyond, this is an entertaining, vibrant chronicle of London and sex through the ages.

For more than a thousand years, England's capital has been associated with desire, avarice, and the sins of the flesh. Richard of Devises, a monk writing in 1180, warned that "every quarter abounds in great obscenities." As early as the second century AD, London was notorious for its raucous festivities and disorderly houses, and throughout the centuries the bawdy side of life has taken easy root and flourished.

In The Sexual History of London, award-winning popular historian Catharine Arnold turns her gaze to London's relationship with vice through the ages. London has always traded in the currency of sex. Whether pornographic publishers on Fleet Street, or courtesans parading in Haymarket, its streets have long been witness to colorful sexual behavior. In an accessible, entertaining style, Arnold takes us on a journey through the fleshpots of London from earliest times to present day. Here are buxom strumpets, louche aristocrats, popinjay politicians, and Victorian flagellants-all vying for their place in London's league of licentiousness.

From sexual exuberance to moral panic, the city has seen the pendulum swing from Puritanism to hedonism and back again. With latter chapters looking at Victorian London and the sexual underground of the twentieth century and beyond, this is a fascinating and vibrant chronicle of London at its most raw and ribald.

Streetcars of America by Brian Solomon, John Gruber
2014 | ISBN: 0747813256 | English | 64 pages | EPUB | 22 MB

Streetcars of America
The handsome multi-colored streetcar is a nostalgic icon of the some of the most romantic and heritage-rich locales in America, including San Francisco, New Orleans and Chicago, immortalized on stage and screen in classics including Meet Me In St. Louis and A Streetcar Named Desire. Streetcars of America chronicles these vehicles from the earliest animal-drawn carriages to the height of their popularity in the 1920s, when there were more than 1,200 street railways, to the turning of the tide in the mid-twentieth century when congestion and attacks from the automobile industry eventually removed streetcars from most urban landscapes. It also looks at the recent efforts to revive vintage streetcars as hip and environmentally-friendly daily commuter service, as well as tourist attractions, in more than thirty cities including Memphis and Washington, D.C.
