The first edition of the American Electrician’s Handbook by Terrell Croft was published by McGraw-Hill in 1913, so with the publication of the sixteenth edition in 2013 we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of this landmark book.
The American Electricians Handbook continues to be a professional resource trusted by electricians, contractors, and engineers for complete and in-depth guidance on the nuts and bolts of design, installation, maintenance, and operation of electrical systems and equipment. The latest edition has been fully updated to comply with the latest relevant Code information (National Electrical Code and National Electrical Safety Code), and offers full coverage of new technologies, including solar power and photovoltaics.

An interesting fact – circa 1930, Terrell Croft went into semi-retirement in Mexico City, where he founded a small bookbindery which he managed until his death in 1967.

Two new books on urban planning provide a treasure trove of information useful to developers and planners everywhere.

In the first of these new books — the third edition of The American City: What Works, What Doesn’t — award-winning city planner and renowned urban scholar Alexander Garvin examines more than 350 programs and projects that have been implemented nationwide in 150 cities (including lots of examples from Los Angeles) and suburbs, evaluates their successes and failures, and offers relevant lessons learned from them.
