Peter Stutchbury's award-winning architecture continues to stimulate a new and increasing awareness of the potential for designing with the Australian landscape and its environment. His architecture has attracted international acclaim through his success in the 2008 International Living Steel Competition for extreme climate housing in Cherepovets, Russia, and his 'Wall House' in Japan for renowned fashion designer Issey Miyake. Stutchbury carries forward the mantle of great Australian 'masters' from whom he has learned, including Glenn Murcutt and Richard Leplastrier. This elegant book will bring his work to a greater audience. It includes critical essays on his work by his friends Richard Leplastrier and Professor Brit Andresen, and by Ingerid Helsing Almaas, Editor of Arkitektur N, the Norwegian Architectural Review. Stutchbury, in his own words and pictures, explains the underpinnings of his philosophy and practice. A collection of 'Projects in Brief' covers seminal works of his early practice. Fourteen major recent 'Projects in Detail' are presented with explanatory texts, sketches, plans and new photography, including his 'Invisible House' in the Blue Mountains, which won 2014 House of the Year. The book finishes with an illustrated chronology of all his works and a section on his working studio.

What if no one won World War II? What if the world was broken? What if we are not alone? What if… PART VI: UNDER THE COFFIN THE PEOPLE Franklin Jacobs and Sean Conner went down a path, a path of which there was no going back, and there they saw what many believe to be the true face of evil. THE POWER There’s a beginning to almost all things in life but not everything, and there are those in Carnes who know more than they’re letting on. THE PLACE In 1944, sixteen soldiers travelled the length of Belgium to a small forgotten village and came face to face with villainy they never even imagined in their nightmares. Welcome to Malley, a town on the borderline of the day. ON THE EDGE OF THE NIGHT For better or worse, The War of the World came to an abrupt end in 1944, with such unfathomable violence and absolute destruction, that it changed the world forever, yet life went on. Now, in 1979, after nearly a decade of peace and prosperity, the course of history is about to undergo another drastic change into a realm of chaos and order. The fabric of reality was shattered, and only now, things are falling apart. The veil of secrecy will be lifted, and the true players of the game will be revealed. For decades and even longer, unbeknownst to anyone, THEY moved their pieces into position and patiently waited. That time is finally here, and the game of games is underway.

Christian Wolmar expertly tells the story of the Trans-Siberian railway from its conception and construction under Tsar Alexander III, to the northern extension ordered by Brezhnev and its current success as a vital artery. He also explores the crucial role the line played in both the Russian Civil War -Trotsky famously used an armoured carriage as his command post - and the Second World War, during which the railway saved the country from certain defeat. Like the author's previous railway histories, it focuses on the personalities, as well as the political and economic events, that lay behind one of the most extraordinary engineering triumphs of the nineteenth century.

How indigenous was the Evangelical Free Church movement in Tsarist Russia? Was it simply a foreign import? To what extent did it threaten the political stability of the nation and encroach upon the existing Russian and German churches? On the Edge examines the efforts of the regimes to suppress the movement and how the movement not only survived but also expanded. To what extent did the movement bring upon itself unnecessary opposition because of aggressiveness and tactics? Albert Wardin describes the contributions the movement made to the religious life of Russia and examines its numerical success.

With our access to Google Maps, Global Positioning Systems, and Atlases that cover all regions and terrains and tell us precisely how to get from one place to another, we tend to forget there was ever a time when the world was unknown and uncharted--a mystery waiting to be solved. In On the Edge, Roger McCoy tells the captivating--and often harrowing--story of the 400 year effort to map North America's Coasts. Much of the book is based on the narratives of mariners who sought a passage through the continent to Asia and produced maps as a byproduct of their journeys. These courageous explorers had to rely on the most rudimentary mapping tools and to contend with unimaginably harsh conditions: ship-crushing ice floes; the threat of frostbite, scurvy, and starvation; gold fever and mutiny; ice that could lock them in for months on end; and, inevitably, the failure to find the elusive Northwest passage. Telling the story from the explorers' perspective, McCoy allows readers to see how maps of their voyages were made and why they were so full of errors, as well as how they gradually acquired greater accuracy, especially after the longitude problem was solved. On the Edge tracks the dramatic voyages of John Cabot, John Davis, Captain Cook, Henry Hudson, Martin Frobisher, John Franklin (who nearly starved to death and become known in England as "the man who ate his boots"), and others, concluding with Robert Peary, Otto Sverdrup, and Vihjalmur Steffanson in the early twentieth century. Drawing upon diaries, journals, and other primary sources--and including a set of maps charting the progress of exploration over time--On the Edge shows exactly how we came to know the shape of our continent.
