"A growing movement to replace charmless suburban sprawl with civilized, familiar places that people love." So wrote Time Magazine in a recent article about Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk and Peter Calthorpe, leaders of the dynamic urban design revolution coming to be known as the New Urbanism. Their breakthrough planning conceptspropose a vision of the future that combines the best of the past with the realities and modern conveniences of today. Part of a broader trend toward the restoration of community and concern for a more sustainable environment, the New Urbanism addresses many of the crucial issues of our time: the decline of America's cities, the rebuilding of its crumbling infrastructure, housing affordability, crime and traffic congestion. Not without controversy, the proponents of this new design approach suggest bold alternatives to the present sprawl and isolation that they see as the consequence of five decadesof poorly planned suburban growth. Like the successful older neighborhoods and small towns where many of us grew up, the designs of the New Urbanism integrate housing, shops, workplaces, parks and civil facilities into close-knit communities that are both charming and functional. Walkability is key, but cars aren't excluded. Public places lie at the heart of these designs which set aside their most valued sites for parks, schools, churches, meeting halls and other civic uses. Affordability is also an important consideration--a wide range from Seaside, the acclaimed new resort town in Florida's panhandle, to a revitalization plan for the deteriorating core ofdowntown Los Angeles. Also included is a mobile-home village in Arizona (cited by Progressive Architecture in its annual design awards), the rebuilding of the nation's largest "urban renewal" housing project in Texas and a "sustainable community" for 12,000 in British Columbia. Initiated by developers, government agencies and/orcitizen advocacy groups, these pioneering new communities and infill projects offer simple yet compelling solutions to many frequently encountered planning problems. The extensively documented case studies in this book include photographs, drawings, diagrams and urban design codes--more than 500 images in all, a majority of which are in color. Essays by the movement's leading practitioners clearly articulate the principles of the New Urbanism. Commentaries by prominent architecture and urban planning theorists complete this comprehensive publication.The New Urbanism advocates an ambitious yet pragmatic agenda for the building and rebuilding of our neighborhoods, towns and cities. This book provides an invaluable guide to this emerging movement forarchitects, urban planners, civic leaders and concerned citizens; it is also must reading for anyone who cares about the future of America's communities.
Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity: Studies on the Era of the French Revolution and Napoleon (American University Studies)
Hardcover book. Published by Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publi (1989)
Intended for both general readers and students, Peter Riesenberg's instructive book surveys Western ideas of citizenship from Greek antiquity to the French Revolution. It demonstrates the persistence of important civic ideals and institutions over a period of 2,500 years and shows how those ideals and institutions traveled over space and time, from the ancient Mediterranean to early modern France, England, and America. Riesenberg treats citizenship in several ways: as a moral code providing the basis for individual identity and community; as a principle of discrimination between those who do and those who do not enjoy certain political privileges, rights, and responsibilities; and as a demand for active participation in civic life. He shows that our tradition of citizenship developed in the realities of the small-scale society in which most people lived prior to the Industrial Revolution. Citizenship as exemplified in ancient and medieval traditions survived the Age of Absolutism and came to serve the new large-scale monarchical politics, which Riesenberg relates to the republican regimes founded in the wake of revolutions in France and America. Citizenship in the Western Tradition is based upon a variety of sources, including medieval manuscripts and legal records. Beyond such authors as Aristotle, Dante, More, Hobbes, and Rousseau, it relies upon an examination of the legal and constitutional literature of early modern Europe. Bodin and Grotius are cited, as well as the statutes of many Italian city-states. Notably, it examines the litigation surrounding citizenship as revealed in the consilia, an enormous body of medieval case law.

How Revolutionary Was the Digital Revolution?: National Responses, Market Transitions, and Global Technology
"This wide-ranging volume is essential reading for anyone interested in the ongoing structural transformations and future challenges posed by information and communication technology (ICT) in Europe, the U.S., and Asia. The book provides extremely important insights into the political economy of the global digital era and helps us understand the interplay of technology, corporate strategy, and public policy. Understanding this interplay at all levels--corporate, national, and international--is the key to fully utilizing the potential of ICT and to enhance long-term economic growth."--Erkki Liikanen, Governor, Bank of Finland, Former Commissioner for Enterprise and Information Society of the European Union "This outstanding volume provokes reflection on the vast changes in the world economy caused by the digital revolution. The editors and the authors provide not only facts but creative ideas: fresh thoughts about how to understand the relationship among technology, corporate strategy, public policy, and the global marketplace. It differentiates among what is global and what remains distinctively national. This book should be read by everybody interested in important issues concerning employment, wealth, and power. It helps redefine the 'conversation' we are having about globalization."--Peter Gourevitch, University of California, San Diego

A seminal work onhuman behavior in the workplace-now completely updated "At last! We have all been quoting Maslow for years and to now have such an excellent compilation of his seminal thoughts on management and organization comes like a timely gift from heaven. The values and principles he taught decades ago are even more relevant today." -Stephen Covey, author, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People. "Maslow's book is a readable, impressionistic masterpiece that extolled the virtues of collaborative, synergistic management decades ahead of its time. This edition reveals just how much the management thinkers of our day, including Peter Drucker, W. Edwards Deming, and Peter Senge, owe to Maslow, and how much, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, management can still learn from his insights." -Andrea Gabor, author, The Man Who Discovered Quality. "Maslow's brilliant and humane perspectives are made easily accessible in this exceptional book. It's also quite humbling-why haven't we yet actualized the truths about human nature and the nature of work?" -Margaret J. Wheatley, author, Leadership and the New Science and A Simpler Way. "Maslow's profound concept of self-actualization could generate a Copernican Revolution of work and society, catapulting us out of what future generations will look back on as the dark ages of management." -Jim Collins, coauthor, Built to Last. The pioneer behind the hierarchy of needs and the concept of self-actualization, Dr. Abraham Maslow was-and is-one of the world's most esteemed experts on human behavior and motivation. However, while perhaps most famous for his work in the area of humanistic psychology, his legacy of work encompasses much more, extending into the realms of business and management. Having explored and studied the relationship between human behavior and the work situation, Maslow translated the science of the mind into the art of management=an important interpretation first published in the far-sighted treatise, Eupsychian Management, and whose impact continues to be felt today. Now, this seminal work has been updated, primed to introduce new readers to-and reacquaint old admirers with-what some have called the renowned psychologist's best book. Bringing into perspective the lasting impact of Maslow's groundbreaking principles, Maslow on Management illustrates how they have withstood the test of time to become integral components of current management practices, such as continuous improvement, Theory X, and empowerment. Offering insight into using these and other tools to effectively tackle present-day business situations, from heightened competitiveness to globalization to emerging technologies, Maslow on Management covers a wealth of timeless topics, including: * Self-actualization-the freedom to effectuate one's own ideas, try things out, make decisions, and make mistakes * Synergy-what is beneficial for the individual is beneficial for everyone; individual success should not occur at the expense of others; align organizational goals with personal goals * Enlightened management policy-assume that all your people have the impulse to achieve; everyone prefers to be a prime mover rather than a passive helper; everyone wants to feel important, needed, useful, successful, and proud; there is no dominance-subordination hierarchy. To complement Dr. Maslow's original writings and to demonstrate how his forward-thinking ideas are being played out in today's business world, Maslow on Management features interviews with Perot Systems Chairman Mort Meyerson, Non-Linear Systems founder Andrew Kay, Esalen Institute founder Michael Murphy, and other prominent figures who provide incisive commentary on subjects ranging from creativity in business to leadership lessons for the digital age. Epitomizing the genius of its author and embodying his elegant ruminations, Maslow on Management is still as important as it was when it first ap

The reforms initiated by Peter the Great transformed Russia not only into a European power, but into a European culture--a shift, argues Cracraft, that was nothing less than revolutionary. The author of seminal works on visual culture in the Petrine era, Cracraft now turns his attention to the changes that occurred in Russian verbal culture.
"At last, an authoritative, detailed summary of the origin of birds! It reviews 100 ] years of a major scientific controversy, especially the explosion of new findings that have characterized the last fifteen years. Chiappe has been in the middle of this recent revolution in our knowledge, and no one else could have written this book." -- Joel Cracraft, PhD Lamont Curator and Curator-in-Charge Department of Ornithology American Museum of Natural History New York, New York "Luis Chiappe is without question the most knowledgeable person in the world on bird fossils from the Age of Dinosaurs, and this book is an opportunity for him to share his discoveries with a broad audience. The personal involvement of the author in many of these discoveries gives the text a special touch and allows the reader to understand how these discoveries were made." -- James M. Clark, PhD, Ronald Entrap Associate Professor and Chairman, Department of Biological Sciences, George Washington University, Washington DC "Chiappe's challenge - to review the paleontological evidence spanning the origin of birds and the early phases of their evolutionary history - is truly ambitious, especially considering the explosion of discoveries made over the last few decades. Yet, despite this daunting challenge, Chiappe handles both evidence and the plethora of associated analyses and debates with an even-handedness that is rarely attempted and even more rarely attempted and even more rarely achieved in such expansive syntheses. Glorified Dinosaurs will undoubtedly set high new standards for synthetic reviews of this fascinating and rapidly burgeoning field of scientific research." Lowell Dingus, PhD, Department of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, New York, New York "In my opinion, Glorified Dinosaurs by Luis Chiappe, an internationally renowned specialist in pale ornithology, is a superb and comprehensive review of our present knowledge on the origin and early (Mesozoic) evolution of birds and their flight. The book will certainly be well received by the international scientific community of paleontologists and biologists. University lecturers will be delighted to have such rich and up-to-date material on this important topic at hand in one book for their courses. The still-disputed problem of avian origins and early evolution has become very popular in recent years. This book will help to settle the controversies and will fill a gap in the book shelves of a wide audience, finally." -- Peter Wellnhofer, PhD, Bavarian State Collection of Paleontology and Historical Geology, Munich, Germany
Praise for Experimental Economics "The best account of all of the new developments [in economics] moves far beyond Peter Bernstein's two classic volumes, Capital Ideas and Against the Gods." --David Warsh, Boston Globe "This is a remarkable book that weaves the deep scientific roots of modern finance and modern financial institutions with humorous perspective and considerable wisdom. Few understand the pervasive and complex economic principles that govern our world of finance. Few are aware of the academic and scientific origins of financial practices and market instruments that are commonplace today. Ross Miller uses his experience and talents acquired as an experimental economist to help us understand a world that is contradictory, potentially dangerous, and paradoxical. He entertains us while doing it." --Charles R. Plott, Edward S. Harkness Professor of Economics and Political Science, California Institute of Technology "Dramatic new ways for buying and selling--spectrum auctions, e-commerce, derivatives--are the economics profession's contribution to the Information Revolution. This book explains how many of these innovations began with simple experiments at Caltech. The style is a refreshing combination--dramatic and fun to read, but also historically and scientifically accurate. So I can send one to my Dad, a salesman, and another to my girlfriend, a patent attorney." --Colin Camerer, Rea and Lela Axline Professor of Business Economics, California Institute of Technology "[Experimental Economics] is a provocative summary of recent decades of economic research. The investor who wants to know the theory behind the markets in which he trades, the economist who has been out of the academic mainstream for many years, and the interested general reader can spend many evenings mulling over the revolution in economics that has occurred since Smith's assumptions of market perfection were challenged. Mr. Miller makes mathematical finance relevant and sometimes even poignant. His book is a marvel of combining anecdote with theory all without so much as a single partial differential equation." --Andrew Allentuck, Globe and Mail (Toronto)
This is the first full scholarly study of rural politics in France during the Second Republic (1848-1952). The Revolution of 1848 and the subsequent liberation of political life changed the face of mass politics in rural France. Unprecedented numbers of French men and women participated in legal and illegal forms of political activity during a period of protracted crisis ultimately resolved by a military coup d'etat. Peter McPhee's book draws on hundreds of regional studies to examine the large-scale political mobilizations of right and left in the countryside, and offers a new synthesis and interpretation of these years. Dr. McPhee shows that rural politics were both more complex and more threatening to urban elites than has been generally recognized. This is a lucid and challenging analysis of a turbulent period in modern French history and its long-term social and political consequences.
