This provocative book challenges long-held assumptions about the nature of historical consciousness in Germany. Susan A. Crane argues that the ever-more-elaborate preservation of the historical may actually reduce the likelihood that history can be experienced with the freshness and individuality characteristic of the early collectors and preservationists. Her book is both a study of the emergence in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Germany of a distinctively modem conception of historical consciousness, and a meditation on what was lost as historical thought became institutionalized and professionalized.
Public forms of remembering the past which are familiar today, such as historical museums and historical preservation, have surprisingly recent origins. In Germany, caring about the past took on these distinctively new forms after the Napoleonic wars. The Brothers Grimm gathered fairy tales and documented the origins of the German language. Historical preservationists collected documents and artifacts and organized the conservation of cathedrals and other historic buildings. Collectors formed historical societies and created Germany's historical museums. No single national consciousness emerged; instead, many groups used similar means to make different claims about what it meant to have a German past.
Ideal for classroom use or self-study, this newly updated best-selling book has provided thousands of students, technicians, engineers, and sales people with a practical introduction to the principles, technologies, and strategies used in industrial process control. This fifth edition takes the same proven approach of previous editions. Each chapter begins with basic definitions and concepts that allow readers to become well versed in the principles necessary to under-stand the variables that affect process control systems. New features in the fifth edition include improved coverage of process control computers and industrial networks and a new chapter on liquid density measurement. Sections were also added on human machine interface (HMI), wireless devices and networks. The book includes solutions to exercises that make it more suitable for self-study.
