Stadt, Kanzlei Und Kultur Im Uebergang Zur Fruehen Neuzeit City Culture and Urban Chanceries in an Era of Change Peter Lang GmbH

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Die beiden Jahrhunderte zwischen 1400 und 1600 sind - bei allem Fortsetzen mittelalterlicher Prägungen - von einem permanenten Wandel im Großen wie im Kleinen erfüllt. Exemplarisch zeigt sich diese Dynamik, zu der die Reformation wesentlich beiträgt, auch in der überaus komplexen Organisation städtischen Lebens im Übergang zur Frühen Neuzeit. Die in diesem Sammelband vereinten Tagungsbeiträge aus der Germanistik, Niederlandistik, Geschichtswissenschaft und Neueren Kirchengeschichte gehen der Frage nach, wie in dieser Zeit unter weithin maßgeblichem Einfluss der Kanzlei als zentralem Organ der städtischen Verwaltung und der in ihnen leitend tätigen Stadt- und Ratsschreiber, aber auch durch andere städtische Funktionsträger durch

City Images and Urban Regeneration Peter Lang GmbH

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

City Images and Urban Regeneration reflects upon extant and experimental concepts in urban planning, life, society and development. This volume integrates contributions deriving from both points of departure: the reflection on urban regeneration processes and the visual perception of urbanity. With this book, the editors want to take up the long debate on 'guiding images' in urban planning and present some new approaches to them. Examples are given from Sweden, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria and France, among others. The contributions are written by authors with backgrounds in a variety of disciplines as economy, sociology, art, history, architecture, political science, urban and regional planners. Off the beaten track of discussing urban life, they all give answers to the question, how we can find the principles, images, concepts, fantasies, politics and planning theories that regard the future of urban planning.

'Franklin's ambition in the book is welcome. The scope and historical sweep of analysis, and the attempt to develop arguments at some length, is a productive contrast to the myopic focus of too many analyses. By situating his analysis of the contemporary city in an extensive historical lineage, Franklin is able to draw attention to shifting fashions in urban policy and social theory, and to draw out the consequences of blind spots amidst the often overweening ambition of 'heroic' city planning...the narrative it offers will be...valuable as an introduction to students' - Theory, Culture & Society Read the full review here 'Franklin writes with barely restrained optimism as he emphasizes the excitement, vitality and potential of cities. This advances the idea of city lives as assemblages of 'human and non-human networks of texts, software, culture, behaviour, architecture, trees and gardens'...Franklin uses a wide range of sources in making his case. Historical accounts, search engine statistics and social and cultural theory are all smoothly inte-grated into the narrative' - Sociology Read the full review here Cities are more important as cultural entities than their mere function as dormitories and industrial sites. Yet, the understanding of what makes a city 'alive' and appealing in cultural terms is still hotly contested - why are some cities so much more interesting, popular and successful than others? In this engaging discussion of 'city life' Adrian Franklin takes the reader on a tour of contemporary western cities exploring their historical development and arguing that it is the transformative, ritual and performative qualities of successful cities that makes a difference. Here is a new urban culture characterized by ecological frames of reference; tracking the making of contemporary city life from traditional times, through early modern, machinic and modernised stages of development. Adopting dynamic narrative structures and stories to develop its critical position this book creates a vibrant synthesis of city life from its key components: * leisure and tourism * recreation and play * arts and culture * nature and environment * architecture and public space. Emphasising the importance of experience the book represents the fluid complexity of the city as a living space, an environment and a posthumanist space of transformation. It will be of interest to all those engaging with the difficulties of urban life in sociology, human geography, tourism and cultural studies departments.

Everyday Life in the Gentrifying City Ashgate Publishing Limited

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Oslo, Everyday Life in the Gentrifying City offers an examination of gentrification from below, exploring the effects of this process upon city neighbourhoods and those that inhabit them, whether residents, business owners and their customers, or local activists. Engaging with recent debates surrounding immigration and the inclusion of ethnic minorities in the city, the book takes up the question of ethnicity and gentrification, arguing for an urban policy that gives up the preoccupation with policies concerning the residential mix and transformation of place in favour of empowering its citizens. A lively and engaging analysis, in which theoretical rigour is illuminated with rich interviews and empirical content in order to shed light on the relationship between gentrification, displacement, and integration, Everyday Life in the Gentrifying City will appeal to scholars and students of sociology, geography, anthropology and urban studies.

Urban Street Design Guide Island Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The NACTO Urban Street Design Guide shows how streets of every size can be reimagined and reoriented to prioritise safe driving and transit, cycling, walking, and public activity. Unlike older, more conservative engineering manuals, this design guide emphasises the core principle that urban streets are public places and have a larger role to play in communities than solely being conduits for traffic. The well-illustrated guide offers blueprints of street design from multiple perspectives, from the bird's eye view to granular details. Case studies show how to implement best practices, as well as provide guidance for customizing design applications to a city's unique needs. Urban Street Design Guide outlines five goals and tenets of world-class street design: Streets are public spaces - streets play a much larger role in the public life of cities and communities than just thoroughfares for traffic; Great streets are great for business - well-designed streets generate higher revenues for businesses and higher values for homeowners; Design for safety - traffic engineers can and should design streets where people walking, parking, shopping, cycling, working, and driving can cross paths safely; and, Streets can be changed - transportation engineers can work flexibly within the building envelope of a street, and many city streets were created in a different era and need to be reconfigured to meet new needs. Elaborating on these fundamental principles, the guide offers substantive direction for cities seeking to improve street design to create more inclusive, multi-modal urban environments. It is an exceptional resource for redesigning streets to serve the needs of 21st century cities, whose residents and visitors demand a variety of transportation options, safer streets, and vibrant community life.

Perspectives in Urban Ecology Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book gives an interdisciplinary overview on urban ecology. Basic understanding of urban nature development and its social reception are discussed for the European Metropolitan Area of Berlin. Further we investigate specific consequences for environment and nature and the quality of life for city dwellers due to profound changes of climate, city shrinking, and the demographic and economic developments. Actual problems of urban ecology should be discussed not only in terms of natural dimension like Atmosphere, Biosphere, Pedosphere and Hydrosphere but also in terms of social dimension like urban planning, dwelling and recreation, traffic and mobility and economic values. Our research findings focus on streets, new urban landscapes after deconstructing apartment blocks, intermediate use of brownfields, and the relationships between urban nature and the well-being of city dwellers. Finally, the book provides a contribution to the international discussion on the theory of urban ecolog

Underground Petersburg: Radical Populism, Urban Space, and the Tactics of Subversion in Reform-Era Russia NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIV PR

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Although the radical populist movement that arose in Russia during the reign of Tsar Alexander II has been well documented, this important study opens with questions that haven't yet been addressed: How did Russian radical populists manage to carry out a three-year campaign of revolutionary violence, killing or wounding scores of people, including top government officials, and eventually taking the life of the tsar himself? And how did this all occur under the noses of the tsar's political police, who deployed vast resources and huge numbers of officials in an exhaustive effort to stop the killing?  In Underground Petersburg, Christopher Ely argues that the most powerful weapon of populist terrorism was the revolutionary underground it created. Attempts to convey populist ideals in the public sphere met with resistance at every turn. When methods such as propaganda campaigns and street demonstrations failed, populists created a sophisticated urban underground. Linked to the newly discovered weapon of terrorist violence, this base of operations allowed them to live undetected in the midst of the city, produce their own weaponry, and attempt to ignite an insurrection through violent attacks--putting terrorism on the map as a technique of political rebellion. Accessible to non-specialists, this insightful study reinterprets radical populism, clarifying its crucial place in Russian history and elucidating its contribution to the history of terrorism. Underground Petersburg will appeal to scholars and students of Russia, as well as those interested in terrorism and insurrectionary movements, urban studies, and the sociology of subcultures.

Space, the City and Social Theory Wiley-Blackwell

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Space, the City and Social Theory" offers a clear and critical account of key approaches to cities and urban space within social theory and analysis. It explores the relation of the social and the spatial in the context of critical urban themes: community and anonymity; social difference and spatial divisions; politics and public space; gentrification and urban renewal; gender and sexuality; subjectivity and space; and experience and everyday practice in the city. The text adopts an international and interdisciplinary approach, drawing on a range of debates on cities and urban life. It brings together classic perspectives in urban sociology and social theory with the analysis of contemporary urban problems and issues. Rather than viewing the urban simply as a backdrop for more general social processes, the discussion looks at how social and spatial relations shape different versions of the city: as a place of social interaction and of solitude; as a site of difference and segregation; as a space of politics and power; as a landscape of economic and cultural distinction; and as a realm of everyday experience and freedom. Similarly, it examines how core social categories - such as class, culture, gender, sexuality and community - are shaped and reproduced in urban contexts. Linking debates in urban studies to wider concerns within social theory and analysis, this accessible text will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students in urban sociology, social and cultural geography, urban and cultural studies.

Deborah Stevenson - City Polity Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is a fresh and engaging analysis of the city as a central concept in contemporary social thought. It probes the contested and negotiated ways in which cities are built, understood, lived and imagined. Taking a thematic approach and drawing on a range of theoretical, methodological and empirical points of reference, it examines such subjects as urban inequality, public space, creative cities, globalization, the night-time economy, suburbia, and memory and emotion. In The City Deborah Stevenson argues that, as theories and concepts shape what is known about cities and urban life, it is necessary to build conceptual frameworks that engage with the intersections and tensions between urban processes and trends, as well as with the complexities of everyday urban life. This book's combination of original insight and critical synthesis will make it an invaluable contribution for an international, interdisciplinary readership of students and scholars in sociology, geography, urban studies and wider social science and the humanities.

Media City Sage Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Winner of the 2009 Jane Jacobs Urban Communication Award, awarded by the Urban Communication Association! Significant changes are occurring in the spaces and rhythms of contemporary cities and in the social functioning of media. This erudite, forceful book argues that the redefinition of urban space by mobile, instantaneous and pervasive media is producing a distinctive mode of social experience. Media are no longer separate from the city. Instead the proliferation of spatialized media platforms has produced a media-architecture complex - the media city. Offering critical and historical analysis at the deepest levels, The Media City links the formation of the modern city to the development of modern image technologies and outlines a new genealogy for assessing contemporary developments such as digital networks and digital architecture, web cams and public screens, surveillance society and reality television. Wide-ranging and thoughtfully illustrated, it intersects disciplines and connects phenomena which are too often left isolated from each other to propose a new way of understanding public and private space and social life in contemporary cities. It will find a broad readership in media and communications, cultural studies, social theory, urban sociology, architecture and art history.

What does a ten or eleven year old child think when driving past a group of picketers? How do youngsters react when they walk by a homeless person sleeping on the sidewalk? Does a police officer inspire respect and admiration in all children? More importantly, which variables account for any differences in the meanings children attach to these situations? In this sociological exploration into children's worlds, they are the active social agents, defying the traditionally passive role assigned to them in the socialization process. As boys and girls from three public Baltimore schools express their fears and pleasures about urban life, traditional theories of stratification and conflict are put to the test in a non-conventional arena: the sociology of Childhood.

A cartography-obsessed misfit clerk from an antique map store in a district that's not quite trendy yet. A bold young woman chasing the answer to a question she can't quite formulate. A petty criminal hoping the parking lot he's just purchased is the ticket to a new life of respectability with his school-age daughter. A ruthless but vulnerable killer and his disgruntled accomplice. In The City Under the Skin, it's not fate that will bind these characters together but something more concrete and sinister: the appearance of a group of mysterious women, their backs crudely and extensively tattooed with maps. They have been kidnapped, marked, and released, otherwise unharmed. When one turns up on the doorstep of the map shop and abruptly bares her back, only to be hustled away by a man in a beat-up blue Cadillac, it's the misfit clerk Zak, pushed by his curious new friend Marilyn, who finds himself reluctantly entering a criminal underworld whose existence he'd prefer to ignore. In this haunting literary thriller, Geoff Nicholson paints a deft portrait of a city in transition. His sharply drawn characters are people desperate to know where they are but scared of being truly seen. A meditation on obsession and revenge, a hymn to the joys of urban exploration, The City Under the Skin is a wholly original crime novel about the indelible scars we both live with and inflict on others.

Death and Life of Great American Cities KUPERARD

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Thirty years after its publication, "The Death and Life of Great American Cities" was described by "The New York Times" as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....(It) can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.
