History Year by Year Book Excerpt:

Travel through the ages, year by year, in this visual history for children told on a timeline that stretches from prehistoric times to the modern day. In this updated volume, the timeline reaches 2018, documenting recent events, including the Syrian War and the continuing exploration of space by the Juno and New Horizons probes. This unique book joins the dots of history by putting historic events across the world on one timeline, including prehistoric people, key civilizations (Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, and Incas), world exploration, the Industrial Revolution, the American Civil War, the world wars, and humans on the Moon. Every page is packed with pictures and original artefacts, to give a snapshot of an era. There are also features that explain major events, such as the rise of the Roman Empire, or the fall of Communism. "Child of the Time" explores the lives of children in history, from the tough training of a Spartan warrior to the lives of young pioneers on a wagon train heading west across America in the 20th century. A "Moment in Time" freeze-frames a particularly historic event, such as the first flight of the Wright Brothers. DK's History Year by Year shows the influences, patterns, and connections between the events that have shaped our world and reveal the history of the world as never before.

When Brains Meet Buildings Book Excerpt:

After decades of research on minds and brains and a decade of conversations with architects, Michael Arbib presents When Brains Meet Buildings as an invitation to the science behind architecture, richly illustrated with buildings both famous and domestic. As he converses with the reader, he presents action-oriented perception, memory, and imagination as well as atmosphere, aesthetics, and emotion as keys to analyzing the experience and design of architecture. He also explores what it might mean for buildings to have "brains" and illuminates all this with an appreciation of the biological and cultural evolution that supports the diverse modes of human living that we know today. These conversations will not only raise the level of interaction between architecture and neuroscience but, by explaining the world of each group to the other, will also engage all readers who share a fascination with both the brains within them and the buildings around them. Michael Arbib is a pioneer in the interdisciplinary study of computers and brains and has long studied brain mechanisms underlying the visual control of action. His expertise makes him a unique authority on the intersection of architecture and neuroscience.
