Urban design futures( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 265 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

Ancient Greece : from the Mycenaean palaces to the age of Homer( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will constitute the most fundamental reinterpretation of the period widely known as the Dark Age of Greece - the period between the collapse of the Mycenaean civilization around 1200 BC and the dawning of the classical era four and half centuries later. The authors take issue with the idea of a Greek Dark Age and everything it implies for the understanding of Greek history, culture and society. They argue that the period is characterised as much by continuity as disruption and that the evidence from every source shows a progression from Mycenaean kingship to the conception of aristocratic nobility in the Archaic period

Social predation : how group living benefits predators and prey by Guy Beauchamp( )

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

"The classic literature on predation dealt almost exclusively with solitary predators and their prey. Going back to Lotka-Volterra and optimal foraging theory, the theory about predation, including predator-prey population dynamics, was developed for solitary species. Various consequences of sociality for predators have been considered only recently. Similarly, while it was long recognized that prey species can benefit from living in groups, research on the adaptive value of sociality for prey species mostly emerged in the 1970s. The main theme of this book is the various ways that predators and prey may benefit from living in groups. The first part focuses on predators and explores how group membership influences predation success rate, from searching to subduing prey. The second part focuses on how prey in groups can detect and escape predators. The final section explores group size and composition and how individuals respond over evolutionary times to the challenges posed by chasing or being chased by animals in groups. This book will help the reader understand current issues in social predation theory and provide a synthesis of the literature across a broad range of animal taxa."--Page 4 of cover
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
