Julius Wellhausen ( 1844 - 1918 ) war ein deutscher protestantischer Theologe und Orientalist, der nachhaltigen Einfluss auf die Forschung zum Alten Testament sowie zur frühislamischen Geschichte hatte. Er war einer der Begründer der modernen Bibelkritik. Die nach ihm benannte Wellhausen-Schule spricht weiten Teilen der biblischen Überlieferung die Historizität ab und betrachtet sie lediglich als Projektion späterer Epochen, speziell der Königszeit. Sie bediente sich dabei methodisch ausschließlich der literarischen Analyse antiker Texte. Wellhausen stellte einige noch heute diskutierte Thesen auf, unter anderem, die Neuere Urkundenhypothese. Wellhausen fasste mehrere bedeutende Arbeiten zur Geschichte des frühen Islams ab, darunter der 1902 erschienene vorliegende Band "Das arabische Reich und sein Sturz" der sich mit den Gründen des Niedergangs der Dynastie der Umayyaden auseinandersetzt, wobei die Rolle der Abbasiden nach dem Untergang der Umayyaden vernachlässigt wird. Das Buch ist in neun Kapitel eingeteilt, deren Titel uns auf die Fakten des jeweiligen Kapitels hinweisen. Sorgfältig überarbeiteter Nachdruck der Originalausgabe von 1902.

Vitrines and glass cabinets are familiar apparatuses that have in large part defined modern modes of display and visibility, both within and beyond the museum. They separate objects from their contexts, group them with other objects, both similar and dissimilar, and often serve to reinforce their intrinsic or aesthetic values. The vitrine has much in common with the picture frame, the plinth and the gallery, but it has not yet received the kind of detailed art historical and theoretical discussion that has been brought to these other modes of formal display. The twelve contributions to this volume examine some of the points of origin of the vitrine and the various relations it brokers with sculpture, first in the Wunderkammer and cabinet of curiosities and then in dialog with the development of glazed architecture beginning with Paxton's Crystal Palace (1851). The collection offers close discussions of the role of the vitrine and shop window in the rise of commodity culture and their apposition with Constructivist design in the work of Frederick Kiesler; as well as original readings of the use of vitrines in Surrealism and Fluxus, and in work by Joseph Beuys, Paul Thek, Claes Oldenburg and his collaborators, Jeff Koons, Mike Kelley, Dan Graham, Vito Acconci, Damien Hirst and Josephine Meckseper, among others. Sculpture and the Vitrine also raises key questions about the nature and implications of vitrinous space, including its fronts onto desire and the spectacle; transparency and legibility; and onto ideas and practices associated with the archive: collecting, preserving and ordering.

Since the late 1970s the role of key world cities such as Los Angeles, New York and London as centres of global control and co-ordination has come under increasing scrutiny. This book provides an overview and critique of work on the global context of metropolitan growth, world city formation and the theory it has generated. Suggesting ‘post-imperialism’ as the most appropriate framework for analysis, the author demonstrates the extent to which urban and regional development, both in Britain and elsewhere, were linked to a colonial mode of production, and highlights the effects of its disappearance. Against this background, the author charts the transformation of London from imperial capital in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to world city in the capitalist world economy of today.
