Late one night, I walked on a street in Santa Fe, New Mexico, as large snow flakes swirled and settled softly upon the town. Only a few people were seen wandering aimlessly on the sidewalks and upon the deserted streets themselves. There was light from street lamps and from inside of closed shops that housed wonderful art and sculptures.
I turned a corner to find several small trees between myself and the red brick wall of a building. The trees had long lost all of their leaves. A small bird, a brown, fat little fellow, sat on a snow covered branch. He chirped softly as I talked to him, apologizing for not having brought any food with me. When he flew away, I knew that I had received a gift from God.


Dreams And Lives In Ottoman Istanbul

Dreams and Lives in Ottoman Istanbul explores the practices of life writing and narration of dreams in early modern Istanbul. It focuses on the prominent biographer Atai (d.1635) who presents a fascinating portrait of contested lives at a time of empire building and shows how seventeenth-century learned circles narrated dreams to assess their position in the Ottoman enterprise. The author argues that dreams provided Ottoman biographers with a means of debating an uncertain world, a world built on diverse social networks and competing world views. Through an engaging and accessible prose style, this book introduces a world where dreams changed lives, the dead appeared in broad daylight, and biographers invited their readers to the gardens of remembrance. Early modern cultural historians who work on life writing, dreams, and practices of remembrance will find Dreams and Lives in Ottoman Istanbul a timely and useful contribution. Comparative studies in economic and political life in Habsburg Spain, Safavid Iran, Mughal India and Ming China have shown the shared rhythms between these contemporaneous dynasties and the Ottomans, and there is now a strong interest in comparative approaches to examining cultural lives. In this first monograph on the early modern Ottoman dreamscape, the author aims to address this interest, engaging in a dialogue with the recent scholarship on the early modern cultural history.

Architectural Building Codes by James G. Scott All architects must have a solid working knowledge of building codes. Noncompliance means facing strained schedules and budgets at best, and lawsuits at worst. Yet until now, no resource has been available to professionals that demystifies architectural building codes in straightforward, easy-to-understand language, with a unique graphic presentation. James G. Scott's Architectural Building Codes slices through the technical, legal, and bureaucratic jargon of building codes with a direct, engaging style. Beginning with the assumption that building codes are by nature complex and difficult to understand, Mr. Scott provides both the theoretical principles and practical grounding all architectural professionals need to efficiently incorporate code regulations into their designs. The author bridges the gap between theory and application, turning the arcane, impenetrable rules of building codes into usable concepts. The material is cogently organized from general to specific ideas, leading the reader on a logical progression through the maze of code regulation. Comprehensive in scope, this book covers building codes with a refreshingly broad perspective. Architectural Building Codes is a complete user's guide that covers a wide range of topics, including:<br> * accessibility standards and the Americans with Disabilities Act<br> * fire-resistant materials<br> * building limitations<br> * means of egress<br> * roofing, interior finishes, floor and wall coverings<br> * occupancy<br> * building materials<br> * plumbing and mechanical codes<br> * elevators<br> An outstanding graphic presentation featuring striking pen-and-ink drawings illuminates technical concepts and regulations. The Appendix provides a list of practical addresses that guides the reader to other useful resources. Architectural Building Codes is a one-of-a-kind reference and resource for architecture students as well as professionals responsible for code compliance. Building managers and owners who require both practical information and a broad grasp of code issues will find this book an indispensable guide.
