...this...volume offers readers a sweeping yet nuanced view of world events in the year 1994. Here...is history in the making: earthquakes in California and political upheavals in Washington, young athletes speeding to victory at Lillehammer and a once-great athlete running to nowhere on the freeways of Los Angeles. Here are rebellion in Chechnya, a nation reborn in South Africa, the triumphant returns of Jean-Bertrand Aristide to Haiti and Yasser Arafat to Gaza. And there are the scientists and artists, the diplomats and divas, the executives and entertainers....The book also offers new material created exclusively for these pages from 'Time' White House correspondent Michael Duffy's analysis of Bill Clinton's year to an extensive photo essay on the Winter Olympics. Here, too, are 'Time's' hallmark annual features: the selection of Pope Paul II as Man of the Year....[and] the critic's choices of 1994's best books, plays, movies, music and television.

Since the publication of his first monograph, Anchoring, New York-based architect Steven Holl has continued to gain international prominence. Pursuing a thoroughly independent course, Holl is one of the most important and dynamic architects practicing today. Intertwining takes up where the best-selling Anchoring left off, presenting comprehensive and anxiously-awaited material on Holl's projects from 1988 to the present. Intertwining contains over twenty projects, including Makuhari Housing, Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Cranbrook Institute of Science, Fukuoka Housing, Stretto House, Frankfurt Block, Chapel of St. Ignatius at Seattle University, Amsterdam Mainfold Hybrid Building, and many more. Extensive illustrations—photographs, plans, drawing, models—complement the descriptive text. Architect's Statement "In the first book of our projects we emphasized 'Anchoring'—the deliberate development of each architectural project from its particular site and program. "In this second collection of works called Intertwining, the aim is to enlarge the argument for particular architecture that intertwines: idea, phenomena, and site. An individual idea drives the design for each project in a unique way of realizing a building and its site. The phenomenal experience of light, overlapping perspectives of space, material textures, or sound; the phenomenology of architecture is worth a reflection in advance of particular sites and ideas that are clarified in each project description." — Steven Holl, Architect

No One Was Turned Away is a book about the importance of public hospitals to New York City. At a time when less and less value seems to be placed on public institutions, argues author Sandra Opdycke, it is both useful and prudent to consider what this particular set of public institutions has meant to this particular city over the last hundred years, and to ponder what its loss might mean as well. Opdycke suggests that if these public hospitals close or convert to private management--as is currently being discussed--then a vital element of the civic life of New York City will be irretrievably lost. The story is told primarily through the history of Bellevue Hospital, the largest public hospital in the city and the oldest in the nation. Following Bellevue through the twentieth century, Opdycke meticulously charts the fluctuating fortunes of the city's public hospital system. Readers will learn how medical technology, urban politics, changing immigration patterns, economic booms and busts, labor unions, health insurance, Medicaid, and managed care have interacted to shape both the social and professional environments of New York's public hospitals. Having entered the twentieth century with high hopes for a grand expansion, Bellevue now faces financial and political pressures so acute that its very future is in doubt. In order to give context to the Bellevue experience, Opdycke also tracks the history of a private facility over the same century: New York Hospital. By noting the points at which the paths of these two mighty institutions have overlapped--as well as the ways in which they have diverged--this book clearly and persuasively highlights the significance of public hospitals to the city. No One Was Turned Away shows that private facilities like New York Hospital have generally provided superb care for their patients, but that in every era they have also excluded certain groups. This exclusion has occurred for various reasons, such as patients' diagnoses, their social characteristics, behavior, or financial status--or simply because of a lack of unoccupied beds. Fortunately, however, year in and year out, Bellevue and its fellow public facilities have acted as the city's medical safety net. Opdycke's book maintains that public hospitals will be as essential in the future as they have been in the past. This is a thoughtful and well-written study that will appeal to anyone interested in the history of medicine, public policy, urban affairs, or the City of New York.

The seventh edition of Inquiry Into Physics continues its strong emphasis on the inquiry approach to learning physics. Throughout, students are asked to try things, to discover relationships between physical quantities on their own, and to look for answers in the world around them and not seek them only in books or on the Internet. Some of the pedagogical tools this text utilizes to build conceptual understanding and inquiry-based learning include the Explore It Yourself boxes, Concept Maps integrated throughout each chapter, and periodic Learning Check conceptual quizzes. The text periodically reviews the historical development of physics, which is particularly relevant as context for non-science majors. Simple mathematics is integrated into the text so students can see the practicality of physics and have a means of testing scientific validity.
