Germany and the Ottoman Railways: Art, Empire, and Infrastructure
The complex political and cultural relationship between the German state and the Ottoman Empire is explored through the lens of the Ottoman Railway network, its architecture, and material culture With lines extending from Bosnia to Baghdad to Medina, the Ottoman Railway Network (1868–1919) was the pride of the empire and its ultimate emblem of modernization—yet it was largely designed and bankrolled by German corporations. This exemplifies a uniquely ambiguous colonial condition in which the interests of Germany and the Ottoman Empire were in constant flux. German capitalists and cultural figures sought influence in the Near East, including access to archaeological sites such as Tell Halaf and Mshatta. At the same time, Ottoman leaders and laborers urgently pursued imperial consolidation. Germany and the Ottoman Railways explores the impact of these political agendas as well as the railways’ impact on the built environment. Relying on a trove of previously unpublished archival materials, including maps, plans, watercolors, and photographs, author Peter H. Christensen also reveals the significance of this major infrastructure project for the budding disciplines of geography, topography, art history, and archaeology.

"Our Crowd": The Great Jewish Families of New York (Modern Jewish History)
The New York Times–bestselling history of the rise of the most powerful and privileged Jewish families in America They immigrated to America from Germany in the nineteenth century with names like Loeb, Sachs, Seligman, Lehman, Guggenheim, and Goldman. From tenements on the Lower East Side to Park Avenue mansions, this handful of Jewish families turned small businesses into imposing enterprises and amassed spectacular fortunes. But despite possessing breathtaking wealth that rivaled the Astors and Rockefellers, they were barred by the gentile establishment from the lofty realm of “the 400,” a register of New York’s most elite, because of their religion and humble backgrounds. In response, they created their own elite “100,” a privileged society as opulent and exclusive as the one that had refused them entry. “Our Crowd” is the fascinating story of this rarefied society. Based on letters, documents, diary entries, and intimate personal remembrances of family lore by members of these most illustrious clans, it is an engrossing portrait of upper-class Jewish life over two centuries; a riveting story of the bankers, brokers, financiers, philanthropists, and business tycoons who started with nothing and turned their family names into American institutions.

European Trains and Trams: East German Narrow Gauge Lines-Part One
This little photo album is the first of a series of booklets covering trains and trams in Europe and is self published via Createspace. Most publishers aren’t interested in work with European subjects so the author has employed the easy to use system provided by Amazon. He was accompanied on all trips, often by one of his brothers and sometimes by like minded work colleagues. Some of the photos were even taken during family holidays! The author made five trips to the German Democratic Republic ; in 1977, 1978, 1979, 1981 and 1983. It was an interesting place to visit and could be very cheap if west marks were exchanged for east marks on the black market. Hotels had to be booked in advance via Berolina Travel and persistence could result in being allowed to stay in hotels in the smaller towns such as the excellent Wilderman at Annaberg -Bucholz, where free enterprise was evident long before unification. These trips included visits to all nine of the remaining narrow gauge lines and this booklet includes photographs from five of those lines, taken in May 1981 and May 1983. All the lines in this booklet are still open today in some form. The photographs in this booklet were taken with a Bronica ETR-C, 6 x 4.5 cm 15 on 120 roll film camera using exclusively Kodak Ektachrome 64 asa ...

Myerstown and Eastern Lebanon County (Postcard History)
Myerstown and the other Eastern Lebanon County towns are located in one of America's most fertile valleys. Rich limestone bedrock underlies much of the Lebanon Valley, which is anchored by Reading to the east and Harrisburg to the west. Myerstown, a borough since 1912, was laid out 144 years earlier by Isaac Meier on his plantation along the Tulpehocken Creek. Jackson Township surrounds Myerstown and is growing rapidly with small businesses, retirement communities, and Amish- and Mennonite-owned farms. Richland, a borough since 1906, was founded in the 1850s when a railroad was built through the valley. Heidelberg Township, the oldest of the municipalities, contains the 18th-century farm and village of Historic Schaefferstown. Millcreek Township includes the communities of Newmanstown and Millbach, where a quaint Pennsylvania German village is located.
