Free sample

Die Vereinigten Staaten werden als eine der vordersten Flüchtlingsorte, und kein anderer Ort symbolisiert das mehr als Ellis Island. Mehr als zwölf millionen Einwanderer--von fast jeder Nationalität und Rasse--sind auf dem Weg zu neuen Erfahrungen durch Ellis Islands Hallen und Toren eingetreten. Mit einer erstaunenden Array von Fotografien aus den neunzehnten uns zwanzigsten Jahrhunderten führt Ellis Island den Leser durch die faszinierende Geschichte dieser kleinen Insel in New Yorker Hafen, von ihrer Vorgeschichte als einer des Hafens "Austerninsel" bis ihre spektakulare Jahre als Flagschiff-Station des U.S. Bureau of Immmigration (Einwanderungsbehörde) bis ihre aktuelle Verkörperung als das größte Museum des National Park Service.

At its most expansive, the Roman Empire stretched from the British Isles to Egypt; Rome was the ancient world's greatest superpower. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is an illustrated introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire. Published as a companion volume to Diana E. E. Kleiner's course on Roman Architecture given through Coursera (first offered in January 2014 but based on a class she has long taught at Yale), this enhanced e-book explores not only Rome but also buildings preserved at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Tivoli, North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, and North Africa. Beginning with the birth of Rome as an Iron Age village, Roman Architecture traces the growth and expansion of the Roman Empire through its cities, which featured civic, religious, commercial, entertainment, and residential districts in the urban setting. A valuable resource for both the student and the traveler, Roman Architecture features over 250 photographs and site plans of the most intriguing and consequential buildings in the Roman Empire. These are presented from the fresh perspective of an author who has journeyed to nearly all of the sites, revealing most of them through her own digital images. In addition, this interactive e-book makes learning about these monuments easier than ever, with handy maps and geolocation links that show you just where the monuments are and, if you're traveling, how to get there. Suitable for the classroom and as a guidebook, Roman Architecture is a fascinating introduction to some of history's most compelling and influential architecture.
