Urban design futures( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban Design Futures puts forward a series of provocative scenarios for the directions in which urban design could evolve. These scenarios take the form of a series of 'think-pieces' on different aspects of urban design by leading practitioners and theorists. Essays from an international group of authors review progress and explore emerging ideas. Should urban design anticipate the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and urban design in the future? This book explores new concepts and points the way towards a series of urban design paradigms for the twenty-first century."--Jacket

Mutiny at the margins : new perspectives on the Indian uprising of 1857 by Crispin Bates( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Mutiny at the margins' series takes a fresh look at the revolt of 1857 from a variety of original and unusual perspectives, focusing in particular on neglected socially marginal groups and geographic areas which have hitherto tended to be unrepresented in studies of this cataclysmic event in British imperial and Indian historiography.'Perception, narration and reinvention : the pedagogy and historiography of the Indian uprising (Volume 6)' moves into the territory of hagiography and pedagogy. It covers intellectual and popular reactions to the revolt and the various ways in which historians and the wider public in India, Pakistan, and Britain have sought to understand, categorise and at times distort or exaggerate salient aspects and particular events.--
Modern architecture in theatre : the experiments of Art et action by Gray Read( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If the city is the theatre of urban life, how does architecture act in its many performances? This interdisciplinary book reconstructs the spatial experiments of Art et Action, a theatre troupe active in 1920s Paris, that defined five distinct types of modern performance, types which mirror social institutions and events. The analysis focuses on Art et Action's designs for theatre buildings to show how the performance spaces interacted with actors and spectators according to their respective type, thus commenting on the characteristic events of urban life. For scholars of theatre, the study demonstrates the interdependence of spatial design and drama at a crucial moment in the history of contemporary performance. For architects, the work offers a model in theatre for how architecture might act in the daily drama of urban life, supporting current efforts to make our cities more vital and thus more sustainable."--Publisher's website

Sovereign wealth funds and international political economy by Manda Shemirani( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, Shemirani provides a systematic methodology for the study of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) over their life span and emphasizes the need for a paradigm shift in our approach towards the study of state capitalism. Applied in this book to the world's four largest SWFs - Government Pension Fund-Global of Norway, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority of the United Arab Emirates, Temasek of Singapore, and the National Wealth Fund of the Russian Federation, this methodology can also be applied to other funds or form a basis for further analytical studies of SWFs. In addition to its first hand approach, the book addresses concerns about the lack of transparency by offering insights into the functioning and investment strategies of the selected SWFs. Academics and students in international political economy, international finance and international business as well as financiers, business leaders, and policy makers, will find the subject and the approach of this book highly useful

Amid the release of some of his most celebrated books, the author's story is an insightful address of the survival of the literate world and the transformation of print, told through suspenseful reflection and alluring, signature footnotes
The migration apparatus : security, labor, and policymaking in the European Union by Gregory Feldman( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every year, millions of people from around the world grapple with the European Union's emerging migration management apparatus. Through border controls, biometric information technology, and circular migration programs, this amorphous system combines a whirlwind of disparate policies. The Migration Apparatus examines the daily practices of migration policy officials as they attempt to harmonize legal channels for labor migrants while simultaneously cracking down on illegal migration. Working in the crosshairs of debates surrounding national security and labor, officials have limited individual influence, few ties to each other, and no serious contact with the people whose movements they regulate. As Feldman reveals, this complex construction creates a world of indirect human relations that enables the violence of social indifference as much as the targeted brutality of collective hatred. Employing an innovative "nonlocal" ethnographic methodology, Feldman illuminates the danger of allowing indifference to govern how we regulate population--and people's lives--in the world today. -- Book Description
