Richard Haag: Bloedel Reserve and Gasworks Park
William S. Saunders (Editor)
1568981171
December 1997
Paperback
·
 
Architects Journal
This is the first in a new venture from Princeton Architectural Press entitled "Landscape Views"-an inexpensive paperback approximately A5 in format, with adequate black-and-white photographs and a couple of essays. Richard Haag's two designs in the environs of Seattle-the Gas Works Park (1971-84)-have been highly acclaimed, and both would justify the more lavish treatment of a landscape equivalent to Phaidon's Architecture in Detail' series or Axel Meges' Opus monographs. When seminal schemes appear in relatively lacklustre form, it reinforces an impression that landscape architecture is subsidiary to architecture itself. Future subjects of 'Landscape Views' volumes include Dan Kiley, Thomas Church and Roberto Burle Marx.

Me of All People: Alfred Brendel in Conversation with Martin Meyer
Martin Meyer
0801440998
October 2002
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Among the many enlightening and amusing things concert pianist Brendel says in this book-length interview is, "I specialize in what I am not playing." As followers of his career know, he never plays French or Russian music, adhering instead to Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Liszt; some Schumann and Brahms; and Schonberg's concerto. In these pages, they will find out his reasons for making such choices; his evaluation of how he and pianists he admires, as well as some he doesn't, have interpreted the Middle European heart of the piano literature; his estimation of the music he plays and doesn't play; and something of his life and his chief nonmusical pursuit: his sharply intelligent, lightly absurdist humorous poetry, which can be sampled in English in One Finger Too Many (1999). Astonishingly for so...

I Love You, Son: What Every Boy (and Man) Needs to Hear
Rick Meyer
0806641924
July 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Rev. Rick Meyer contends that when children do not have the assurance of knowing they are deeply loved and cherished, persistent emotional deficits often result. Males experience and express these deficits in unique ways. The boys and men profiled in I Love You, Son reflect the struggles of adolescent boys and adult males as they face their own emotional deficits in relation to God, self, and others. This unique contribution to the topic of being male today encourages men’s efforts as husbands and fathers and extends the words of God—"Behold, my son, whom I love" (Matthew 3:17)—to all men and boys.

From the Publisher
A unique book about the need of males to feel deeply cherished by both our heavenly father and an earthly father. --Focus on concrete, real-life...

The Dust of Empire: The Race for Mastery in the Asian Heartland
Karl E. Meyer
1586480480
April 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Meyer, editor of World Policy Journal and a longtime member of the New York Times editorial board, draws on his extensive knowledge to trace the histories of several south, central and west Asian countries that are now of critical importance to the U.S. At a time when powerless nations can have profound impact on international affairs, his work serves as a powerful introduction to this poorly understood region-valued for its oil and location yet feared for its extremism-and simultaneously offers instructive lessons to American policy makers as the U.S. forges relationships with these states. Meyer combines scholarly expertise with journalistic detail in a rich account relaying formative events through extensive research and poignant personal anecdotes. Skillfully weaving in his perceptive reflections on American...
