This absorbing book covers both great mansions, such as Petworth House in Sussex, and less grand but nevertheless unique buildings in the care of the National Trust. It travels the length and breadth of the British Isles, presenting buildings ranging from stunning Cragside, rooted in the rugged Northumbrian landscape, to the rather more austere surroundings of the Workhouse in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, and beyond. Between them, these buildings have borne witness to a thousand years of history, from the time of William the Conqueror to the present day.

The National Trust Guide is the only fully comprehensive guide to these properties, lavishly illustrated in colour and black and white, with maps for ease of reference. The second edition, published in 1989, has now been completely revised and updated. Making their first appearance are recent acquisitions that illustrate the variety of the National Trust's work: the great eighteenth-century landscape gardens at Stowe in Buckinghamshire; 7 Blyth Grove, an Edwardian semi-detached house in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, that is virtually unchanged since it became the home of the Straw family in 1923; Patterson's Mill, the last working water-driven spade mill in Ireland; and 2 Willow Road, the architect Erno Goldfinger's modernist house in Hampstead, London, with its fascinating twentieth-century art collection.

Londons größter lebender Chronist über die »gay history« seiner Stadt Das römische Londinium war übersät mit »Wolfshöhlen«, Bordellen und heißen Bädern, in denen es hoch herging. Homosexualität galt als bewundernswert. Bis Kaiser Konstantin die Macht übernahm und mit seinen Mönchen und Missionaren für Ordnung sorgte. Zeiten der Toleranz wechselten mit Zeiten der Ächtung und Verfolgung. Heute gehört »queer London« zur britischen Hauptstadt wie Tower und Big Ben. Londons homosexuelle Szene ist die größte in Europa und eine der größten weltweit. Peter Ackroyd zeigt uns, wie seine Stadt sich diesen Platz erkämpft hat. Er zelebriert die Vielfältigkeit und Energie der Community, zeigt aber auch die Gefährdungen, denen sie zu allen Zeiten ausgesetzt war. »Ein absolut einzigartiges Leseerlebnis.« The Independent

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

The definitive guide to the architectural treasures of one of North America s urban masterpieces "Savannah s twenty-two squares are its treasures the other main attraction: its architectural gems. The sheer number of distinguished buildings is astonishing for a city of Savannah s size." John Berendt, from the Foreword The National Trust Guide to Savannah takes you on an illustrated walking tour through the breathtakingly gorgeous squares and neighborhoods of one of North America s most beautiful cities. Pausing along the way to linger over this or that point of architectural interest, Roulhac Toledano pieces together the history of the city, from when it was little more than a plan on founder James Edward Oglethorpe s drawing board through the groundbreaking preservation work of the 1950s. With the help of more than 200 historic and contemporary photographs, Toledano provides vivid impressions of the city, and takes you to the outlying areas of the Sea Islands and salt marshes, the plantations of Chatham County, and nearby river villages. For those planning a visit, The National Trust Guide to Savannah supplies an extensive guide to Savannah s museums, lodgings, restaurants, bookstores, antique shops, and other points of interest.

The third in the bestselling series of Houses of the National Trust and Gardens of the National Trust, this is a richly illustrated book providing new perspectives on the British landscape. From the dramatic hills of the Lake District to the mysterious fens of eastern England and the beaches and coves of Cornwall, landscapes provide the settings for our daily lives, as well as an important part of our identity. The inspiration for artists, writers and film-makers, our landscapes are cultural, man-made creations far more than we may be aware. But how much do we know about how these landscapes came into being? How were different sorts of landscapes valued in the past? And how can landscapes today and in the future best adapt to the ever-changing world in which we live? Chapters include The Art of Landscape, Ancient Places, Homes and Gardens, Lost in the Woods, Open Country and Shifting Shores. Landscapes of the National Trust will appeal to all those who care about the past, present and future of the British landscape and is superbly illustrated throughout with stunning photographs.

Die chaotische Schriftstellerin Ariadne Oliver soll bei einem Gartenfest als Gesellschaftsspiel einen Mord inszenieren. Nur ist ihr nicht ganz geheuer dabei: Die Stimmung auf dem prachtvollen Landsitz ist irgendwie merkwürdig. Und tatsächlich stirbt das Opfer der „Mörderjagd“ einen ganz realen Tod. Aus dem Spiel wird blutiger Ernst. Plötzlich ist auch die Hausherrin verschwunden, die Gäste des Gartenfestes verhalten sich immer merkwürdiger, die Bewohner des Dorfes werden in die Geschehnisse verwickelt, ein mysteriöser Vetter von Lady Stubbs erscheint auf seiner luxuriösen Yacht. Hercule Poirot, der eigentlich nur die Preise der „Mörderjagd“ verteilen sollte, beginnt zu ermitteln.

Ideal for students of architectural technology, this volume of the Technologies of Architecture series covers the technologies available and the processes necessary for the conservation of existing buildings and environments. This book provides, in a single text, the tools for students to be able to evaluate such buildings, as well as an extensive understanding of the mechanisms which cause their deterioration and knowledge of the technologies available to correct their status. The ever higher standards set for buildings, especially in energy conservation contexts, demand that practitioners appreciate how the performance of existing structures can be enhanced, which is also covered. Considering the work of conservation within a holistic perspective and historical context, this book is additionally invaluable for architecture and construction students.
