    In 1836, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas agreed on one thing: Illinois needed railroads. Over the next fifty years, the state became the nation's railroad hub, with Chicago at its center. Speculators, greed, growth, and regulation followed as the railroad industry consumed unprecedented amounts of capital and labor. A nationwide market resulted, and the Windy City became the site of opportunities and challenges that remain to this day. In this first-of-its-kind history, full of entertaining anecdotes and colorful characters, Simon Cordery describes the explosive growth of Illinois railroads and its impact on America. Cordery shows how railroading in Illinois influenced railroad financing, the creation of a national economy, and government regulation of business. Cordery's masterful chronicle of rail development in Illinois from 1837 to 2010 reveals how the state's expanding railroads became the foundation of the nation's rail network.

    The Age of Loneliness - Essays

    How do we add to archives of ecological memory? How can we notice and document what’s missing in the landscapes closest to us? In her debut essay collection, Laura Marris reframes environmental loss by setting aside the catastrophic framework of the Anthropocene in favor of that of the Eremocene, the age of loneliness, which is marked by the dramatic thinning of wildlife populations and by isolation between and among species. And yet these essays are filled with wonder and vitality, immersing readers in the strange landscapes of the Eremocene, and in the search for home among the human and more-than-human. 
     
    Vivid, keenly observed, and driven by a lively intelligence and lyrical voice, The Age of Loneliness is an examination of the dangers of loneliness, the surprising histories of ecological loss, and the ways that community science—which relies on the embodied evidence of “ground truth”—can help us recognize, and maybe even recover, what we’ve learned to live without. 
     
    “The Age of Loneliness is a stunning book that will become a close friend, and like all good friends, it will change the shape of our world. Laura Marris has managed that trickiest of feats: she brings the past into the present and reminds us that we’re not yet alone. With prose that calls to mind the best in the tradition of nature writing, but with a voice which is also clearly, distinctly its own, Marris is the writer for our time.”—Daegan Miller

    Art has the remarkable ability to capture the essence of human creativity, emotions, and culture. For centuries, it has served as a mirror reflecting our society's ever-evolving thoughts, passions, and perspectives. From the timeless masterpieces of the Renaissance to the cutting-edge innovations of contemporary artists, art continues to inspire, provoke, and move us in profound ways. 
    Art collecting, an age-old practice that has transcended generations, allows individuals to become custodians of these profound expressions of human imagination. Whether you're an aspiring art enthusiast, a seasoned collector, or someone who's simply curious about the world of art, this book is your gateway to the captivating universe of art collecting. 
    At its core, art collecting is a deeply personal endeavor. It's about more than just acquiring pieces of artwork; it's a journey of exploration, self-expression, and appreciation. But why do people collect art? The motivations are as diverse as the art itself. Some collect for the sheer joy of surrounding themselves with beauty, while others see it as an investment opportunity. Art can be a reflection of one's identity or a means of connecting with different cultures and histories. In this book, we'll delve into the myriad reasons why individuals choose to embark on this enriching path. 
    Understanding the art market is a crucial aspect of art collecting. Over time, this market has evolved from a relatively exclusive sphere to a global industry with immense economic significance. We'll explore the historical trajectory of the art market, examining the key milestones and shifts that have shaped it.
