In creating more than one thousand objects for the home over the last three decades, the acclaimed architect has elevated everyday objects-from toasters to toilet brushes-into enduring icons that have redefined the American home.In recent years, with the resounding success of his collaboration with Target Stores, Michael Graves has become a household name, equivalent in the public eye with the very concept of good design. In Michael Graves Designs: The Art of the Everyday Object, author Phil Patton surveys this fascinating career in design and retail, from kitchen accessories for Alessi to hotels and household objects for Disney, crystal bowls for Steuben, boutiques and packaging for Lenox and more. Going behind the scenes in Graves' Princeton, N.J., studios, Patton offers an exclusive look at the firm's passionate quest to make high style accessible to every shopper with eye-catching, witty, and formally beautiful products. In his own words, Graves describes the thought and process behind his uniquely American body of work.With more than 300 color images, including rare examples of Graves' famous personal sketches, product models and prototypes, technical drawings, and specially commissioned photographs of the studio in action, Michael Graves Design: Art of the Everyday Object celebrates works of art that work.

A long vanished world comes to life through the reminiscences of a former long-distance drover.

Peter Moore left the city behind in 1952 to become part of a dying breed - a long-distance drover. In My Droving Days we follow his progress through the 1950s as he rubs shoulders with the larger-than-life characters - and their dogs and horses - who trekked along the outback sto A long vanished world comes to life through the reminiscences of a former long-distance drover.

Peter Moore left the city behind in 1952 to become part of a dying breed - a long-distance drover. In My Droving Days we follow his progress through the 1950s as he rubs shoulders with the larger-than-life characters - and their dogs and horses - who trekked along the outback stock routes of western Queensland and New South Wales.

Meet the world's worst cattle dog and the station hand, Charlie, who blows an outside toilet (and its contents) sky high; thrill to the high drama of a night stampede; catch a poddy dodger in the act; get caught by a beast's horns; take on a brown snake while collecting wild duck eggs or shoot a few roos to feed the twenty-seven dogs on the team.

My Droving Days captures the real taste of the outback and the vanishing world of the overlanders, bulldust and all.

Fakir Baykurt, öykülerinde köy yaşamının sertliği, yoksulluk, cahillik, taassup, batıl inanç, sömürü gibi sorunları ele alarak köylünün maddi ve manevi dünyasını toplumsalcı ve gerçekçi bir bakıştan işliyor. Gözlemlerden, canlı tanıklıklardan yola çıkan yazar, günlük konuşma dilini öyküye taşıyarak zaman zaman mizahi bir dil kullanıyor; bürokrasinin çarkları arasında sıkış Fakir Baykurt, öykülerinde köy yaşamının sertliği, yoksulluk, cahillik, taassup, batıl inanç, sömürü gibi sorunları ele alarak köylünün maddi ve manevi dünyasını toplumsalcı ve gerçekçi bir bakıştan işliyor. Gözlemlerden, canlı tanıklıklardan yola çıkan yazar, günlük konuşma dilini öyküye taşıyarak zaman zaman mizahi bir dil kullanıyor; bürokrasinin çarkları arasında sıkışan ama içinde de bir umudu barındıran "sıradan insanı", yaşadığı yerin atmosferiyle birlikte çarpıcı bir biçimde betimliyor.

İlk basımı 1971'de yapılan On Binlerce Kağnı'yı yeniden okurla buluşturuyoruz:

"Dedikodu almış yürümüştü. Köyün içi çalkalanıyor. Kara Hafız'ı, Yüklü'deki kendirlerin arasında Çil Fadime'yle görmüşler. Kara Hafız acar adamdı zaten. Kendi karısını eskitmiş, onun bunun karısından geçinmeye başlamıştı. Çil Fadime de tavlı avrat. Kara Hafız çağırdı mı, koşuyor.

Ateş olmayan yerden duman tüter mi? Rüzgâr esmese çalı çıtırdar mı? Hafız'la Fadime'yi Harımlar'daki kendirlerin arasında da görmüşler. Şimdi Urkuş'un kuzulukta buluşuyorlar. Üstelik kara Hafız, Fadime'nin kocasına büyü yapmış. Nefsi uyanmıyormuş artık. Fadime de yanıp tutuşuyormuş. Yangınını söndürmek için Urkuş'un kuzuluğa Hafız'dan önce varıyormuş.Söylentileri herkes duydu köyün içinde. Ama kocasının kılı kıpırdamıyor. Belki bir o duymadı? Köyün kocakarıları, genç gelinleri, adamı görünce öksürüyor, sezdirmeye çalışıyor, ama öksürükten pıksırıktan herkes anlamaz ki!..."

Bóg i człowiek na ławie oskarżonych Żył między nami, ale pewnego dnia zniknął w tajemniczych okolicznościach. Zostawił jednak obietnicę, która wielu napawa lękiem. Kiedy znów się pojawi, nastąpi koniec tego świata… Sąd Ostateczny właśnie się zaczyna. Czy jesteśmy gotowi na zderzenie z wiecznością? Czy mamy się czego bać?

Among these are that free trade and population growth have historically led to periods of economic growth; that a move away from free trade caused the Great Depression; and that colonial powers in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries became rich through the exploitation of the Third World. Bairoch argues that these beliefs are based on insufficient knowledge and misguided interpretations of the economic history of the United States, Europe, and the Third World.

"A challenging and readable introduction to some major controversial themes in modern international economic history."—Peter J. Cain, International History Review

"Paul Bairoch sheds fascinating light on many of the accepted truths of modern economic history: an intriguing account, well executed."—Alfred L. Malabre, Jr., Economics Editor, Wall Street Journal
