It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.

Here are hot rodding's true pioneers--the guys who raced the lakes in the mid-century, the ones who broke the records, and those who, through sheer ingenuity, transformed discarded car bodies, flathead V-8s, and four-bangers into the stuff of myth. In essays by some of the most respected journalists in hot rodding today, these icons of the early days come to life, and the history of hot rodding unfolds in all its gritty glory. Featured throughout are rare photographs drawn from the archives of the American Hot Rod Foundation, an institution dedicated to preserving, promoting, and celebrating the history of hot rodding. Compiled by noted hot rod author Dain Gingerelli, the essays in Hot Rod Roots take up topics crucial to the development of hot rodding from the 1920s to the early 60s: Robert Genat explores the symbiotic relationship between hot rodders and the U.S. military during World War II; Pat Ganahl delves into the birth of the belly tank and its lasting effects on the sport; Greg Sharp tracks hot rodding's impact on the development of circle-track racing; Gingerelli explains how the sanctioning of quarter-mile drag racing accelerated hot roddings growth; Ken Gross documents the effect of enthusiast magazines and car shows; and Mark Morton shows how hot rodding's early roots will always remain a part of the sport. This book also includes a foreword by So-Cal Speed Shop founder and dry lakes pioneer Alex Xydias.

Architecture has always been the faithful mirror of society's most important transformations. By the same token, modern architecture, which has broken away from established trends and has a wealth of technology at its disposal, affirms new values that cater to the psychological and spiritual progress of humanity. This innovative work's timeline starts with the end of World War II and the ensuing rift in international architecture and urban planning. Through highly informative images, the book conveys the new representative languages of the postwar era, with its need for reconstruction and its quest for a new monumentality, and examines the new trends that emerged up to the beginning of the 21st century. Photography has been used as an extraordinary medium to explore this new world of architecture, with its ethereal and sometimes colossal forms that are utterly rational and surprisingly well balanced. Essays written by experts, accompanied by high-quality photographs that perfectly capture the multifaceted spirit of modern architecture, illustrate the complex tapestry of the international movements of the 20th century, from technological expressiveness to a new modernity, investigating meg-astructures, advanced technology, postmodernism, minimalism and deconstructionism. Sprawling museums and hyperfunctional airports, enormous shopping centers and futuristic libraries, sports arenas and immense university complexes are presented - along with their brilliant creators - on this surprising journey through forms, materials, colors, ideas and symbols. The outcome is an uncommon portrait of our world and the way architecture interprets it. AUTHOR: Matteo Agnoletto, born in Modena in 1972, worked at the architectural firms of Renzo Piano and Jean Nouvel and is the cofounder of ACZ Studio di Architettura. In addition to teaching at the university level, Agnoletto writes articles for newspapers and magazines, and has been the editor in chief of Parametro from 2003 to 2008. Francesco Boccia, born in Milan in 1967, works as a freelance architect and also contributes to numerous trade periodicals. His publications include La ricostruzione virtuale del Teatro alla Scala (1996). Silvio Cassara, born in Modica in 1947, is an architect. He teaches at Italian and foreign universities, and writes for architectural journals, including Parametro. Cassara has recently organized exhibitions presenting several New York architects. His publications include Richard Meier: Recent Works (2004). Alessandra Di Marco, born in Milan 1972 is the archivist responsible for maps and photographs at CEDAT (Centro di Documentazione dell'Architettura e del Territorio) at the Polytechnic Institute of Milan. Guya Elisabetta Rosso, who was born in Vercelli in 1975, has collaborated with Piedmontese architectural firms and with the Polytechnic Institute of Milan on the development of the Territorial Coordination Plan for the Province of Mantua (2000). Marco Tagliatori, born in Turin in 1968, is a freelance architect specializing in interior design. He has also worked with the Polytechnic Institute of Turin. In 1997 he curated an exhibition on Norwegian Functionalism at Castello del Valentino in Turin. ILLUSTRATIONS: Colour
