Urban mass transit : the life story of a technology by Robert C Post( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume in the Greenwood Technographies series covers urban mass transit - that is, the technologies that allow cities to move large numbers of people around. Just a few hundred years ago, the size of cities was limited by the time it took people to move from one part of the city to another. The development of successive technologies has forever altered the urban landscape. From horse-drawn omnibuses to subways to current light-rail, this volume highlights the technological and social struggles that have accompanied urbanization and the need for an efficient and cost-effective means of transportation in cities. -- Product Description

Censorship and silencing : practices of cultural regulation by Calif.) Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Censorship and Silencing explores the transformation of familiar understandings of censorship. Questions involving the regulation of speech used to conform to simple, predictable political alignments, with "conservatives" set against "liberals."" "But the landscape of censorship has radically altered. Feminists join with right-wing fundamentalists to seek the suppression of pornography, while liberals ally with right-wing libertarians to protect hate speech. Underlying these developments are fundamental intellectual developments, exemplified in the work of Michel Foucault." "In this volume a distinguished and interdisciplinary set of authors examine the issue of censorship from a variety of perspectives. They inquire into the use of law as an instrument for the regulation of speech, they explore the use of state power to establish and marginalize discursive practices, and they address the question of invoking state power to regulate speech so as to redress private imbalances of power."--Jacket
