Sustainability

Sustainability by Thomas Pfister & Martin Schweighofer

Sustainability as a reference frame for dealing with the interconnection of environmental, economic and social issues on a global scale is not only characterized by complex problems and long-term strategies but also by differences and disagreements with regard to its meanings and how they should be realised. Therefore, Rather than seeking a single most appropriate definition of Sustainability, the main focus of this book is on how specific Sustainability problems are defined by whom and in which contexts, what solutions are pursued to tackle them, and which effects they have in practice. This...

Organizational Accidents Revisited

Organizational Accidents Revisited by James ReasonManaging the Risks of Organizational Accidents introduced the notion of an 'organizational accident'. These are rare but often calamitous events that occur in complex technological systems operating in hazardous circumstances. They stand in sharp contrast to 'individual accidents' whose damaging consequences are limited to relatively few people or assets. Although they share some common causal factors, they mostly have quite different causal pathways. The frequency of individual accidents - usually lost-time injuries - does not predict the likelihood of an organizational accident. The book also...

Rewriting 'Les Myst

Rewriting 'Les Myst by Amy WigelsworthKey works of popular fiction are often rewritten to capitalize on their success. But what are the implications of this rewriting process? Such is the question addressed by this detailed study of several rewritings of Eugène Sue's Mystères de Paris (1842-43), produced in the latter half of the nineteenth century, in response to the phenomenal success of Sue's archetypal urban mystery. Pursuing a compelling analogy between city and text, and exploring the resonance of the palimpsest trope to both, Amy Wigelsworth argues that the mystères urbains are exemplary rewritings, which shed new light...

A Very Bad Wizard: Morality Behind the Curtain

A Very Bad Wizard: Morality Behind the Curtain by Tamler Sommers

In the first edition of A Very Bad Wizard: Morality Behind the Curtain - Nine Conversations, philosopher Tamler Sommers talked with an interdisciplinary group of the world's leading researchers-from the fields of social psychology, moral philosophy, cognitive science, and primatology-all working on the same issue: the origins and workings of morality. Together, these nine interviews pulled back some of the curtain, not only on our moral lives but-through Sommers' probing, entertaining, and well informed questions-on the way morality traditionally has been studied.

The Road to Soweto: Resistance and the Uprising of 16 June 1976

The Road to Soweto: Resistance and the Uprising of 16 June 1976 by Julian BrownThis revisionary account of the Soweto Uprising of June 1976 and the decade preceding it transforms our understanding of what led to this crucial flashpoint of South Africa's history. Brown argues that far from there being "quiescence" following the Sharpeville Massacre and the suppression of African opposition movements, during which they went underground, this period was marked by experiments inresistance and attempts to develop new forms of politics that prepared the ground for the Uprising. Students at South Africa's segregated universities began to re-organise themselves as a political...

Heterogeneous Spatial Data: Fusion, Modeling, and Analysis for GIS Applications

Heterogeneous Spatial Data: Fusion, Modeling, and Analysis for GIS Applications by Patan & Michela Spagnuolo

New data acquisition techniques are emerging and are providing fast and efficient means for multidimensional spatial data collection. Airborne LIDAR surveys, SAR satellites, stereo-photogrammetry and mobile mapping systems are increasingly used for the digital reconstruction of the environment. All these systems provide extremely high volumes of raw data, often enriched with other sensor data (e.g., beam intensity). Improving methods to process and visually analyze this massive amount of geospatial and user-generated data is crucial to increase the efficiency of organizations and to better manage...

Heinz Kohut and the Psychology of the Self

Heinz Kohut and the Psychology of the Self by Allen M. SiegelHeinz Kohut's work represents an important departure from the Freudian tradition of psychoanalysis. A founder of the Self Psychology movement in America, he based his practice on the belief that narcissistic vulnerabilities play a significant part in the suffering that brings people for treatment. Written predominantly for a psychoanalytic audience Kohut's work is often difficult to interpret. Siegel uses examples from his own practice to show how Kohut's innovative theories can be applied to other forms of treatment.
