The fabulous collections housed in the world's most famous museums are trophies from an imperial age. Yet the huge crowds that each year visit the British Museum in London, the Louvre in Paris, or the Metropolitan in New York have little idea that many of the objects on display were acquired by coercion or theft.

Genre: Science

But What If We’re Wrong? visualizes the contemporary world as it will appear to those who'll perceive it as the distant past. Chuck Klosterman asks questions that are profound in their simplicity: How certain are we about our understanding of gravity? How certain are we about our understanding of time? What will be the defining memory of rock music, five hundred years from today? How seriously should we view the content of our dreams? How seriously should we view the content of television? Are all sports destined for extinction? Is it possible that the greatest artist of our era is currently unknown (or—weirder still—widely known, but entirely disrespected)? Is it possible that we “overrate” democracy? And perhaps most disturbing, is it possible that we’ve reached the end of knowledge?

History of Computing: Learning from the Past Why is the history of computing important? Given that the computer, as we now know it, came into existence less than 70 years ago it might seem a little odd to some people that we are concerned with its history. Isn't history about 'old things'?

University of Texas Press | Pages: 307 | 2007-07-01 | ISBN-029271498X | 4.9 MB

This book lacks some indispensable sources on the history of archaeological explorations in Southwest Asia (or what has been called Middle East) in the period between the two World Wars. The main theme upon which the author concentrates is that the rise of a sort of nationalism or nationalistic governments in Egypt, Iran, and Turkey led to manifold uses of historical relics and monuments in order to foment the countries' development. The focus of the book is apparently Iran in the 1930s, but the author doesn't seem to be in full control of his sources. Having said that, the book takes advantage of a number of US archival documents, which is the positive point, but they should have been checked and used along with other unpublished and published sources (French and Iranian archives, in particular)in order to produce a substantial study of the history of archaeology in the Middle East.
