This book brings together twenty essays on diverse topics in the history and science of knots. It is divided into five parts, which deal respectively with knots in prehistory and antiquity, non-European traditions, working knots, the developing science of knots, and decorative and other aspects of knots. Its authors include archaeologists who write on knots found in digs of ancient sites (one describes the knots used by the recently discovered Ice Man); practical knotters who have studied the history and uses of knots at sea, for fishing and for various life support activities; a historian of lace; a computer scientist writing on computer classification of doilies; and mathematicians who describe the history of knot theories from the eighteenth century to the present day. In view of the explosion of mathematical theories of knots in the past decade, with consequential new and important scientific applications, this book is timely in setting down a brief, fragmentary history of mankind's oldest and most useful technical and decorative device — the knot.

Rowland Mallet, ein wohlhabender Kunstliebhaber, wird zum Mäzen des jungen Bildhauers Roderick Hudson, den er in der Enge der amerikanischen Provinz entdeckt und mit nach Europa nimmt. In der ersten Begeisterung über die Kunstwerke Roms und die belebende Atmosphäre der Stadt gelingen Roderick Hudson einige vielversprechende Skulpturen. Doch dann erstarrt er immer mehr in Eitelkeit und Selbstherrlichkeit und sucht Zerstreuung im gesellschaftlichen Leben Roms und auf Reisen. Er verliebt sich leidenschaftlich in die extravagante, ehrgeizige Christina Light, die jedoch bald seine Charakterschwächen erkennt und ihn zurückweist. Rowland Mallet, der sich durch Rodericks selbstzerstörerische Entwicklung in seinen Erwartungen in den jungen Künstler enttäuscht sieht, versucht noch vermittelnd einzugreifen; er läßt Rodericks Mutter und Braut aus Amerika kommen. Aber Roderick Hudsons moralischer und künstlerischer Verfall ist nicht mehr aufzuhalten.
