The University of Central Florida has stood at the edges of Orlando for 40 years, a major institution of research, culture, education, and professional development stitched into the fabric of one of the nation's most dynamic and influential metropolitan areas. Conceived in 1963, at the height of America's fascination with the space program and less than an hour from Florida's Space Coast, the school began as Florida Technological University, a vast and remote tract of wild palmettos and swampland that held the promise of a cutting-edge "Space University." But 1963 was the same year that Walt Disney made his fateful fly over Central Florida and chose the location for Walt Disney World, a decision that would ultimately transform the entire region. Florida Tech found itself growing along with the surrounding community in size, prominence, and power into a diverse institution that no one in those early years could have envisioned. Renamed the University of Central Florida in 1979 to better reflect its broad curriculum and its strong marriage with the region, the school has blossomed into the prototype for the modern metropolitan university.

"This book argues that, since transatlantic slavery, patience has been used as a tool of anti-black violence and political exclusion, but shows how during the Civil Rights Movement black artists and activists used theatre to demand "freedom now," staging a radical challenge to this deferral of black freedom and citizenship"--

As a building type, art museums are unparalleled for the opportunities they provide for architectural investigation and experimentation. They are frequently key components of urban revitalization and often push the limits of building technology. Art museums are places of pleasure, education and contemplation. They are remarkable by their prominence and sheer quantity, and their lessons are useful for all architects and for all building types. This book provides explicit and comprehensive coverage of the most important museums built in the first ten years of the 21st Century in the United States and Europe. By dissecting and analyzing each case, Ronnie Self allows the reader to get under the skin of each design and fully understand the process behind these remarkable buildings. Richly designed with full technical illustrations and sections the book includes the work of Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Peter Cook & Colin Fournier, Renzo Piano, Yoshi Taniguchi, Herzog & de Meuron, Jean Nouvel, SANAA, Daniel Libeskind, Diller Scofidio & Renfro, Steven Holl, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Bernard Tschumi, Sauerbruch Hutton, and Shigeru Ban & Jean de Gastines. Together these diverse projects provide a catalogue of design solutions for the contemporary museum and a snapshot of current architectural thought and culture. One of few books on this subject written by an architect, Self’s analysis thoroughly and critically appraises each project from multiple aspects and crucially takes the reader from concept to building. This is an essential book for any professional engaged in designing a museum.

My mother was born and raised in China by her American missionary parents. Throughout my childhood growing up in Michigan, my mother and my grandfather told my brother and me stories about their life in the Orient. My grandfather was a superb storyteller and I was always fascinated by his descriptions of the Chinses people and their culture. Later I would live in both Korea and Japan, adding to my interest in the Far East. Each of these fictional short stories is anchored in Chinese and Japanese history and, in some part, on my firsthand experiences and those of my mother and grandparents.

When the family is rocked by the sudden death of Redmond Delaney, Colin’s uncle and a major shareholder in the family fortune, Colin learns something that puts all he thought he knew about the man into question. Julia McCray knows that her brother, Drew, has been hiding something that’s been tearing him apart. The day Colin turns up on Julia’s doorstep, he reveals a secret that will throw both her family and his into turmoil. The Promise of Lightning: Megan Scott’s relationship with California rancher Liam Delaney started off well, but lately it’s been going too far too fast—and it’s beginning to feel like a trap she doesn’t know how to escape. Drew McCray has been embroiled in a feud with his cousin Liam for years, but so far, he’s managed to keep his distance. Now, a wedding in which they’re both groomsmen is forcing the two of them together, for better or worse. Considering that Drew is falling hard for Liam’s girl, it's probably going to be worse. Loving the Storm: Rancher Liam Delaney’s still suffering from the triple blow of his beloved uncle’s death, his breakup from a woman he’d wanted to marry, and an accident that left him with an injury that still hasn’t fully healed. When he meets artist Aria Howard, he starts to feel things he hasn’t felt in a long time—like optimism and hope for the future. But Aria’s history—one she’s trying to hide from him—has taught her that love is dangerous and that forever is nothing but a fairy tale. If Liam’s going to earn her trust, he’s going to have to give her the one elusive thing she’s always longed for. Searching for Sunshine: Breanna Delaney is a devoted mother, a loyal sister, and a grieving widow who always thinks of others before herself. But lately, she’s been wanting more. If she can just restore her ramshackle beach house to its former glory, it will be a big step toward taking care of her own needs for a change. Jake Travis, battered by a recent divorce, goes into his job as Breanna’s contractor expecting nothing more than a paycheck. Sure, she’s attractive as hell, but she’s way out of his league. But the more closely he works with her, the more he thinks maybe he has the tools to repair both of their lives.

USA Today bestselling author Julie Kenner follows up her acclaimed thrillers The Givenchy Code and The Manolo Matrix with a whip-smart new adventure in code-breaking -- Hollywood-style! Devi Taylor was one of Hollywood's fastest-rising starlets -- until a crazed fan held her at knifepoint and she retreated to a life of privacy and Valium. Now recovered and ready for a comeback, Devi dreams of endorsing all things Prada, whose Rodeo Drive store she can't resist. Instead, she lands the starring role in The Givenchy Code, a high-budget action-adventure flick. But with the tabloids all over Givenchy and her recent split with her drop-dead handsome costar, Blake, Devi can't shake the feeling that another crazed fan is going to strike. Then a frightening message -- "Play or Die" -- is delivered to Devi's house, and she finds herself sucked into a deadly and cryptic game not unlike the one in the movie she's starring in. Hollywood has always been her life, but does Devi know its secrets well enough to follow the cinematic clues that might save her and her favorite Prada bag? Julie Kenner is the author of two previous novels in this series,The Givenchy Code and The Manolo Matrix, both available from Downtown Press. Her novel Aphrodite's Kiss was a USA Today bestseller, and Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom was a Book Sense Summer Paperback Pick. Her other acclaimed novels include Nobody But You and The Spy Who Loves Me. She lives in Georgetown, Texas, with her husband and daughter.

Most commonly known as the home of the world-famous Toll House cookie, Whitman has a rich history that goes well beyond the cookie jar. Centrally located between Boston and Cape Cod, the town played a significant role in the formative years of the country. Early industries included various mills, foundries, and tack factories; later industry was defined by prosperous shoe manufacturing, as Whitman was home to many of the country's largest shoe factories. Whitman takes the reader on a trolley ride through the quaint center, which still evokes that small-town feeling, and the town park, which was designed by legendary architect Frederick L. Olmstead. Through more than two hundred photographs, this nostalgic tour shows the schools, churches, commerce, and the lives of Whitman residents, all of which bring back memories of a simpler time.

Some fairly serious shit has happened in the last sixty years. As fate would have it, I was fairly close to the central point of a lot of that shit - albeit in some cases only briefly; "shit" it seems, has a fairly long half life. As time has passed I have found it increasingly difficult -impossible really - to turn off a continued remembrance of the events and places and people that inhabited the story boards of all of that shit. They just won't leave me alone. So I have written it, and them, all down.One bookend of the story was my involvement in the "war effort", as we called the Vietnam debacle. The other was the near demise of IBM. Between those bookends there lurk a wide variety of people, experiences and events that always seemed, as they occurred, to be coherently additive to the total story.

The stories now being told about the colonial American past represent an "America" newly found, as scholars continue to evaluate and revise the longer-standing stories that have, across the centuries, held particular cultural and critical sway. This collection is a celebration of the widening of scholarly inquire in early American studies, and a tribute to a leading early Americanist whose scholarly career continues to contribute to the opening up of crucial questions of canon.
