'In a time when interdisciplinary theory has too often been content merely to splice together the tag ends of opposed psychoanalytic ideas, Rosemary Gordon emerges as a true builder of psychological bridges. The basis of her thinking offers the traveler not only safe passage between Freud and Jung and Winnicott and Klein, but also stunningly beautiful views of the still untrammeled depths of human experience that stretch between and below what these great pioneers and their followers have so far managed to develop.'- John E. Beebe'It is a pleasure and an honor to have been asked to write some introductory remarks to this highly important work by Rosemary Gordon, fittingly entitled Bridges. I...

Bridges

Bridges are remarkable structures. Often vast, immense, and sometimes beautiful, they can be icons of cities. David Blockley explains how to read a bridge, how they stand up, and how engineers design them to be so strong. He examines the engineering problems posed by bridges, and considers their cultural, aesthetic, and historical importance.

This book explores how bridges can unite, link and help people. It also examines how bridges can barricade, obstruct and take people's lives. Students are encouraged to track how engineering acumen has led to longer, wider and higher bridge designs. It also traces how human error has resulted in famous but tragic bridge collapses. Filled with practical and curriculum linked activities, Bridges inspires students to design their own bridges and investigate how bridges have been used as symbols and metaphors in popular culture. Includes photocopiable sheets which are all curriculum linked.

Bridges of Portland

Portland is an inland port city that rose to importance in the mid-19th century as a major shipping point for the Pacific Northwest's wheat, lumber, and other commodities. The Columbia and Willamette Rivers enabled seagoing vessels to reach the port, but they also presented obstacles to local travel and commerce. Willamette River ferry service was available by 1853, but Portlanders had to wait until 1887 for a bridge. The first was the Morrison Bridge, followed by the Steel Bridge in 1888, the Madison Bridge was in 1891, and the Burnside Bridge in 1894. These bridges helped Portland grow from 17,600 residents in 1880 to 90,000 in 1900. Many more bridges were added as Portland grew during the 20th century, and well-known bridge engineers Ralph Modjeski, J.A.L. Waddell, Gustav Lindenthal, David Steinman, and Joseph Strauss each contributed to Portland's world-class collection of bridges.
