A dictionary of environment and conservation by Chris C Park( Book )

51 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: As the popularity of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth attests, the environment has become an increasingly important issue in the minds of most people. In A Dictionary of Environment and Conservation, Chris Park offers a comprehensive reference work for everyone concerned about the future of our planet. This comprehensive dictionary contains over 8,500 informative entries on all aspects of the environment and conservation, embracing a broad spectrum of concerns, including sustainable development, biodiversity, environmental ethics, philosophy and history, resource management, sociology, and environmental policy. In addition to its wide-ranging, concise definitions, the Dictionary includes thirty highlighted entries on topics such as Antarctica, Gaia hypothesis, Chernobyl, genetic engineering, the Kyoto Protocol, ozone depletion, and the United Nations Conference on Environmental Development. It is important to note that, unlike other books in this area, the dictionary addresses not only the scientific side of conservation and the environment, but also social, legal, political and economic aspects. Readers will find clear, concise coverage of international treaties, movements, trusts and organizations, as well as biographies of key figures in environmental science. The volume also boasts wide coverage of terms relating to rural/community development and participation, an area that plays an increasingly crucial role in managing the environment and biodiversity. The dictionary concludes with a valuable selection of 10 appendices, including international hazard assessment scales such as the Beaufort scale, the Richter scale, Torino asteroid and comet impact hazard scale, and the Fujita tornado scale, plus the geologic timescale and an appendix of useful websites for further study. Concise and wide-ranging, this is an essential work of reference for students and professionals, and anyone with an interest in the environment and conservation

Sacred worlds : an introduction to geography and religion by Chris C Park( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first in the field for two decades, looks at the relationships between geography and religion. It represents a synthesis of research by geographers of many countries, mainly since the 1960s." "No previous book has tackled this emerging field from such a broad, interdisciplinary perspective, and never before have such a variety of detailed case studies been pulled together in so comparative or illuminating a way. Examples and case studies have been drawn from all the major world religions and from all continents. Many historical examples complement the contemporary ones in this wide-ranging review." "Major themes covered in the book include the distribution of religion and the processes by which religion and religious ideas spread through space and time. Some of the important links between religion and population are also explored. A great deal of attention is focused on the visible manifestations of religion on the cultural landscape, including landscapes of worship and of death, and the whole field of sacred space and religious pilgrimage."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Chernobyl : the long shadow by Chris C Park( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1989, Chernobyl: The Long Shadow offers a balanced review of what happened there, why and how it happened, and what the main lessons and implications of the accident are. It looks back on events during and after the disaster, in particular reviewing how it and the radiation fallout were dealt with in different countries and looks forward to how the incident might affect the nuclear power industry around the world. The book explores the significance of the accident within the Soviet Union, considers its impact on public confidence in nuclear power, and reviews what improvements are necessary in emergency planning throughout the rest of the world. It is written from an inter-disciplinary perspective; based on detailed scientific research, which is described in non-specialist terms, it considers themes like attitudes to nuclear power and political reaction to the accident itself."--Publisher description

God : real or imagined? by Chris C Park( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does God actually exist, or is God simply an idea made up - imagined - by humans? This question has puzzled and challenged society for decades. What are the arguments on both sides, and what is the evidence one way or the other? Written from a Christian perspective, this fascinating book is an invitation to believers and non-believers to engage intelligently with the God Question. Its aim is not to try to persuade people, but to provide a forum for thoughtful, sensitive debate. The author explains the importance of world-views that shape how we view the world around us, and summarises the different ways in which religions treat the idea of God. He outlines the so-called 'Arguments for God', including philosophical arguments and ones based on design, consciousness, morality, sacred texts, probability, and the cumulative case. After looking at the 'Death of God' debate, he examines the different views of agnostics and atheists, and explores why Richard Dawkins and the New Atheists insist that God is simply an invention. He also debunks the popular ideas that modern science has made the idea of God redundant, religious faith is irrational, and science and human reason are value-neutral and objective. Should God make his presence more obvious for us to believe? The author presents a case for thinking of God not as a distant being who is judgmental and inaccessible to humans, but as a pervasive spirit who is near, loving, and accessible
