Unlimited Publishing is proud to announce that it has acquired rights to the definitive history of the world's most recognizable landmark: The Tallest Tower: Eiffel and the Belle Epoque, by veteran international journalist, Joseph Harriss.
The first edition, published in hardback by Houghton Mifflin, was released in 1975. It was widely praised as a fascinating and insightful account of the monument's construction, the genius of its designer, and the rich historical context that made it the icon of an age. A revised paperback from Regnery Gateway followed in 1989. Now, a significantly revised and updated edition from UP has been released for 2004 and beyond.
Author Joseph Harriss has served as a correspondent for Time Magazine from Paris, Algiers and Brussels, and a foreign affairs columnist for The Dallas Morning News. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, Smithsonian, and other respected publications.
Previous editions garnered solid critical review and worldwide readership. They remain in widespread use, especially by libraries and schools.
The revised and updated 2004 edition from UP combines the best of its forerunners, as well as adding fresh new material such as security concerns in the post-9/11 era. With historical photographs, illustrations, bibliography and index, it is now available in paperback and library-quality hardback, renewing a timeless work for a new generation of readers.
