"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.

Comedic DramaCharacters: 5 male, 2 female King Henry II of England has three sons by Eleanor of Aquitaine: Richard, Geoffrey, and John. He wants the kingdom to stay united after his death, but all three sons want to rule and it is likely to be torn apart by revolution. Henry favors the youngest John, while Eleanor favors the eldest, Richard. Middle son Geoffrey hopes to play both ends against each other and come out on top. Henry would like to have another heir by his mistress Alais, but that would only add to the confusion. Uneasy is the head on which the crown lies, and uneasy the truce between a matchless king and queen. Often revived, this play was the basis of the Oscar-winning film which starred Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn.

Published in the UK in 1967, this is the US debut of this controversial novel in the form of a drug-drenched, satan-haunted diary. Peter meets Maud, and his initial contempt for her as a straight, boring hairdresser soon gives way to a kinky menage a trois, in which Sally, the trois, eagerly dons a dog collar and frilly apron and has herself tattooed with the words I am Sally, the slave of Maud and Peter. This is a vivid, utterly convincing portrait of life on the loopier fringes of the Sixties, black, compulsive and very, very funny, a prankish celebration of a time when the social, sexual, political and alchemical revolution seemed only a chord-change away, an extended postcard from a world turned upside down.

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 can I keep knowledge from walking out the door when employees leave?" This pressing question is insightfully answered in this landmark book. Operational knowledge has never been more critical to organizational success. Knowledge loss from downsizing, imminent baby-boomer retirements, and high job turnover have created a knowledge continuity crisis that poses an unprecedented threat to organizational productivity and profits. Based on extensive research, Continuity Management solves this crucial problem of knowledge loss for managers at any organizational level by describing an effective strategy for preserving knowledge continuity between employee generations. Revolutionary in its effect, but evolutionary in its practice, continuity management is fueling a new knowledge revolution. This book is about that revolution-and how to lead it. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT "The book you're holding can help you reverse the tide of 'corporate forgetting.' It explains how to manage the entire cycle of identifying, transferring, and harnessing your company's operational knowledge. And that's key because knowledge continuity is quickly becoming the new competitive battlefield. Tip the balance in your favor by reading this thoughtful book." --Mike Ruettgers, Executive Chairman, EMC Corporation "This is the first book to examine in detail the loss of knowledge caused by downsizing and turnover and the first to offer a viable solution. This break-through method for maintaining knowledge continuity between employee generations will change the corporate landscape for years to come." --Murray Martin, Group President, Global Mail, Pitney Bowes Inc. "Continuity management is the missing link in knowledge management that will mean significant increases in productivity and knowledge creation-cutting-edge thinking regarding knowledge as a corporate asset." --Newton F. Crenshaw, Vice President, Eli Lilly and Company, E.Lilly Division "The concepts presented in Continuity Management, provide essential guidance for how soldiers can leverage the Army's knowledge, so we can adapt to each new fight and win our nation's wars." --Lieutenant General Peter Cuviello, Chief Information Officer, U.S. Army "This is a topic that is at the top of the list for many organizations and Beazley, Boenisch, and Harden have provided a compelling way to address it in Continuity Management. They 'get it' that the knowledge that employees have is not just individual understanding, but is embedded within a community. Continuity Management is an insightful blend of individual and community responsibility for organizational knowledge." --Nancy M. Dixon, Organizational Knowledge Consultant and author of Common Knowledge

Though he lived most of his life in the remote village of Deya on the island of Mallorca, Robert Graves (1895--1985) was conversant with the most important issues of this century and was acquainted with many of the most powerful people. Jorge Luis Borges called him a soul above. Graves wrote almost restlessly on subjects of great diversity: myths of the Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, and Celts; modern science and economics; contemporary society and culture as well as of ancient Greece and Rome, of Celtic Wales and Ireland, of the time of Milton, and of the American Revolution.He was a poet of great fame, a celebrated writer of historical novels, and the man who imprinted the name and identity of the White Goddess upon the cultural language. His translations of Latin classics have been applauded; his recastings of Biblical and Persian texts attracted irascible attention from scholars.Throughout his long and productive life, whether he was talking with Virginia Woolf, Peter Quenell, Jo

Over the last five years Peter Nolan has conducted a major investigation into Chinese industry, its economic structure, and the opportunities for growth in the future. As one of just four world experts invited by the Chinese Government to consult on their application to joint the World Trade Organisation he has worked closely with the heads of Chinese industry and with many foreign multinationals operating in China. "China and the Global Economy" is an executive summary of the opportunities for business in one of the largest markets in the world, by one passionate about its possibilities for the future.
Even though it's no longer very new, the "New Economic History" remains vital. Its hallmark is the application of economic theory and statistical methods to problems in history. New sources of data and advances in economic theory continually offer the opportunity for fresh looks at old and new questions. Since the initial publication of A New Economic View of American History in 1979, the field and its practitioners have matured considerably, and a torrent of new research has been performed. New chapters on long-run growth, the market for labor, population distribution and growth, financial markets, the changing structure of American industry, and the Great Depression have been added. Thus, Jeremy Atack and Peter Passell have filled the gaps that existed in the first edition, fashioning a true survey of America's economic history from colonial times through the New Deal. Did mercantilism cause the American Revolution? Was slavery profitable? What contribution did migration and immigration make to the economic growth of the nation? How effective has government intervention been in the redistribution of income? Do we know enough about the causes of the Great Depression to prevent another one? Did the New Deal save American capitalism or undermine it? What is the record on tariff policy? These are just a few of the centrally important questions in American history that are illuminated in this book.
