AMERICAN FREEDOM AND JUSTICE VS. THE TYRANNIES OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY The new government in central Europe, called the Confederated Principalities of Europe, was formed by an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians led by Mike Stearns who were transplanted into 17th-century Germany by a mysterious cosmic accident. The new regime is shaky. Outside its borders, the Thirty Years War continues to rage. Within, it is beset by financial crisis as well as the political and social tensions between the democratic ideals of the 20th-century Americans and the aristocracy which continues to rule the roost in the CPE as everywhere in Europe. Worst of all, the CPE has aroused the implacable hostility of Cardinal Richelieu, the effective ruler of France. Richelieu has created the League of Ostend in order to strike at the weakest link in the CPE's armor¾its dependence on the Baltic as the lifeline between Gustav Adolf's Sweden and the rest of his realm. The greatest naval war in European history is about to erupt. Like it or not, Gustavus Adolphus will have to rely on Mike Stearns and the technical wizardry of his obstreperous Americans to save the King of Sweden from ruin. Caught in the conflagration are two American diplomatic missions abroaRebecca Stearns' mission to France and Holland, and the embassy which Mike Stearns sent to King Charles of England headed by his sister Rita and Melissa Mailey. Rebecca finds herself trapped in war-torn Amsterdam; Rita and Melissa, imprisoned in the Tower of London. And much as Mike wants to transport 20th-century values into war-torn 17th-century Europe by Sweet Reason, still he finds comfort in the fact that Julie, who once trained to be an Olympic marksman, still has her rifle . . .

Urban Hallucinations

Author: Julie Eizenberg
ISBN: 1939621445
Release Date: 2017-04-01
Genre: Architecture

In Urban Hallucinations, architects Koning Eizenberg take on the idyll of local and neighborhood through the design of recent projects in the Los Angeles region. They bring a fresh eye to placemaking and community building in an urban area that is ambivalent about development, yet conscious of regional issues--notably sustainability, an ordability, and housing shortage. Believing opportunities hide in plain sight, the architects sift through the context of increasing regulation, various opinions on responsible growth, and priorities for quality of life to extract their own unexpected and compelling approach to the architecture of the day to day. Short narratives by well known Los Angeles-based urban thinkers and observers, including Frances Anderton, Dana Cu , and Alissa Walker, give context for the work. Their stories add insight into both the joys and imperfections of living in an iconic city.

Breathtaking new interiors from this iconic designer, called "the reigning queen of restrained elegance" In her much-anticipated second book, Victoria Hagan features an exquisite selection of new interiors that embody the "soft modern" look that distinguishes her work. A major force in the design community, Hagan is the master of juxtaposing old and new, showing luxury through simplicity, and creating homes that reflect their owners' lives. In these appealing, timeless projects--including a New York penthouse, a Nantucket beach house, and a Western ranch--formal architecture is loosened up with a generosity of spirit and an appreciation for the whimsies of style. Throughout, Hagan discourses on the spirit of the unexpected detail--a vintage mirror or a unique chair--that adds soul and modernity. After twenty-five years of running a successful business, she shares her philosophy on attaining good taste and expressing an attitude through her work. Victoria Hagan: Dream Spaces is a beautiful and inspiring collection of this design superstar's work and a must for every interior design library.

As the Revolutionary War progressed, little-known events were unfolding in the rugged wilderness region of northern Vermont. General Jacob Bayley, Colonel Moses Hazen and their soldiers carved out a military road, the Bayley-Hazen Military Road, from Newbury to Westfield, also known as Hazen¿s Notch. The intended purpose of this road was to provide a speedy conduit for troops to reach southern Canada. Four blockhouses were constructed along the road to accommodate soldiers and act as footholds in the region. After the war, the road and blockhouses facilitated the spread of settlement in the untamed wilderness. The Greensboro blockhouse provided housing to soldiers and civilians, aiding in the establishment of the town of Greensboro, Vermont. Eventually the blockhouse fell into ruin and folkloric memory, until now. This book presents the history of the Greensboro blockhouse and the data produced from four years of archaeological investigation, including 72 full-color images, maps, letters, and photos of the excavation and the material recovered during that process. The authors are proud to preserve this little-known chapter in America¿s formative history as a living memory for future generations.
