George Washington’s Eye: Landscape, Architecture, and Design at Mount Vernon
On the banks of the Potomac River, Mount Vernon stands, with its iconic portico boasting breathtaking views and with a landscape to rival the great gardens of Europe, as a monument to George Washington's artistic and creative efforts. More than one million people visit Mount Vernon each year-drawn to the stature and beauty of Washington's family estate.

Art historian Joseph Manca systematically examines Mount Vernon-its stylistic, moral, and historical dimensions-offering a complete picture of this national treasure and the man behind its enduring design. Manca brings to light a Washington deeply influenced by his wide travels in colonial America, with a broader architectural knowledge than previously suspected, and with a philosophy that informed his aesthetic sensibility.

Washington believed that design choices and personal character mesh to form an ethic of virtue and fulfillment and that art is inextricably linked with moral and social concerns. Manca examines how these ideas shaped the material culture of Mount Vernon.

Based on careful study of Washington's personal diaries and correspondence and on the lively accounts of visitors to his estate, this richly illustrated book introduces a George Washington unfamiliar to many readers-an avid art collector, amateur architect, and leading landscape designer of his time.

Tadao Ando: Conversations with Students by Tadao Ando
2012 | ISBN: 1616890703 | English | 96 pages | PDF | 36 MB

Tadao Ando: Conversations with Students
The newest volume in our popular Conversations series features Japanese architect Tadao Ando. One of the most celebrated living architects, Ando is best known for crafting serenely austere structures that fuse Japanese building traditions with Western modernism. His minimalist masterworks-geometric forms clad in silky-smooth exposed concrete-are suffused with natural light and set in perfect harmony with the landscape. In these highlights from lectures delivered at the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Architecture, Ando candidly describes his experiences as a largely self-taught practitioner, tracing his development from an early interest in the traditional building craft of his native Japan through his political awakening in the turbulent 1960s to his current stature as one of the world's foremost architects. In addition to exploring his aesthetic influences and working process, Ando offers students a road map not only for maintaining professional integrity, but also for becoming effective agents of change in the world.

John Christian Bach – Mozart's Friend and Mentor by Heinz Gartner

John Christian Bach – Mozart’s Friend and Mentor by Heinz Gartner
The youngest surviving son of Johann Sebastian Bach, John Christian (born Johann, he adopted the English form of his name in maturity) represents a unique link between the baroque and classical worlds. His early musical training was with his father but his own musical preferences led him to Italy and study with Padre Martini. He abandoned the Lutheranism of his youth, becoming a Roman Catholic and composing much sacred music as organist of Milan Cathedral. He became Mozart's friend and mentor, having met him when the child prodigy visited London in 1764. During his lifetime he was the most successful of the musical Bachs, although he died deeply in debt, and until quite recent years his music has been largely ignored. This impeccably researched biography of the man and his times is evidence that his true stature is now being recognized.

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945 by Charles Whiting
English | December 22, 2014 | ISBN: 0850525136 | ASIN: B00RD0UC94 | 190 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 3.5 MB
In the closing says of World War Two, German resistance to the Nazis was growing. This is the dramatic true story of one act of rebellion.

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945
The Werewolves were formed in November 1944, having been recruited and trained by SS Police General Gutenberger.

A team of five men and a woman was chosen for "Operation Carnival", which was a plot to kill Franz Oppenhoff, the new mayor of Aachen, who the Germans saw as an American stool-pigeon and traitor.

‘Werewolf’ skilfully recreates the atmosphere of unease that prevailed on both sides during the final months of the Second World War.

‘Warewolf’ outdoes the best spy novel and demonstrates yet again that ‘fiction’ cannot hold a candle to ‘fact’ when coming from the pen of a master of Charles Whiting’s stature.

'A fascinating insight into the hidden war. I learned something new on every page.' – Tom Kasey, best-selling author of 'Trade Off'.

Charles Whiting is the author of numerous history books on the Second World War. Under the pen name of Leo Kessler he also wrote a series of best-selling military thrillers, including ‘Guns at Cassino’ and ‘Valley of the Assassins’.
