More and more glass is being used in buildings. It is no longer considered a fragile material. It is recyclable and affordable. Glass is available in a wide range of architectural, structural, optical and acoustical properties to address the varying requirements of buildings. Knowledge about the use of glass in buildings along scientific lines is a 'gap' in the presently available literature. The book is an attempt to focus on comprehensive guidelines for use of glass in buildings. It covers: *Evolution of glass to the present state, *Glass types with their properties and uses, *Selection of glass for specific applications and uses, *Determination of thickness of glass used in exteriors of buildings, *Safe use of glass in interiors, *Prevalent glazing systems, *'Do's and 'Don'ts' about use of glass in buildings. As consolidated guidelines, the book is of immense value for architects, engineers, designers, consultancy firms, contractors, builders, window fabricators, glass manufacturers, glass processing industry and students of architecture, engineering and interior design.

Berlin-dwelling Dane Agnes Obel has been racking up the accolades throughout mainland Europe since her platinum-selling 2011 debut, Philharmonics. With the beguiling Citizen of Glass, her third studio long-player, she looks poised to enchant the rest of the world with her dark charms. A classically trained pianist with an elegant and elastic voice, Obel's melancholic chamber pop invokes names like Goldfrapp, Bat for Lashes, and Anna Calvi, but with a succinct aura of Scandinavian refinery. Where her relatively austere prior outings relied largely on piano and strings, Citizen of Glass revels in ghostly electronics and voice modulation, even going so far as to bring in a temperamental, late-'20s monophonic synthesizer called a Trautonium. The string arrangements are more ambitious and the composition style is a bit more opaque, but the ten-track set is unequivocally Obel-esque.

While developments in the 1990s saw Germany move away from its rigidly prohibitive stance towards the use of force, Berlin's policy in the war on terrorism suggested that Germany may be retreating into a new form of self-imposed restraint. In this first major English language study of German security policy after Iraq, Kerry Longhurst considers the evolution of Germany's peculiar approach to the use of force after the Cold War through the conceptual prism of strategic culture.
