    Title: Around the World: the Atlas for Today

    This modern atlas presents our world in striking images and clear texts. The book is not just for graphic designers, but also for anyone who is curious about how we live today. Looking through an atlas has always been a fascinating way to explore the world. Around the World is a contemporary evolution of an atlas tailored to our information age that takes its readers around the globe in 288 pages. In this book, compelling information graphics illustrate how natural and manmade phenomena impact our lives. They take us on an entertaining and informative journey that gives us a deeper understanding not only of our planet's geography, but also of the key local and global developments of the twenty-first century. Alongside classic facts about nature, history, population, culture, and politics, Around the World's eye-catching information graphics clearly explain complex processes such as global trade and evolving demographics. The book gives added insight into our modern world through its visual exploration of topics such as the changing speed of travel. Around the World alternates between providing information on general subjects such as families, languages, life expectancies, natural disasters, eating habits, economies, prosperity gaps, or religions, and providing more specific details about hobbies, coffee consumption, overfishing, soccer, and internet providers. The book also depicts events that have left indelible marks on our collective conscience including September 11, the Olympic Games, Japan's Fukushima disaster, and the sinking of the Titanic. Like any atlas, Around the World cannot claim to be a complete record. Rather, it serves as a rich cornucopia of information about local peculiarities of global relevance that bring home the little differences --as well as the astoundingly large similarities--among the citizens of the world. Enthralling, attractive, and informative, Around the World's international collection of illustrations and information graphics is for anyone who is curious about our planet and the people who live on it.

    Art & Craft of Policy Advising: A Practical Guide
    ISBN: 9783319524931
    Title: Art & Craft of Policy Advising: A Practical Guide

    This book offers a practical guide for new policy advisors and their managers, grounded in the author’s extensive experience as a senior policy practitioner in central and local government.

    Effective policy advising does not proceed in ‘cycles’ or neatly ordered ‘stages’ and ‘steps’, but is first and foremost a relationship built on careful listening, knowing one’s place in the constitutional scheme of things, becoming useful and winning the confidence of decision makers.

    The author introduces readers to a public value approach to policy advising that uses collective thinking to address complex policy problems; evidence-informed policy analysis that also factors in emotions and values; and the practice of ‘gifting and gaining’ (rather than ‘trade-offs’) in collaborative governing for the long term. Theory is balanced with practical illustration and processes, tools and techniques, helping readers master the art of communicating what decision-makers need to hear, as well as what they want to hear.

    Title: Atlas Maior of 1665
    Author: BLAEU JOAN

    World class: The finest atlas ever publishedSuperlatives tend to fail in face of Joan Blaeu s Atlas Maior, one of the most extravagant feats in the history of mapmaking. The original Latin edition, completed in 1665, was the largest and most expensive book to be published during the 17th century. Its 594 maps across 11 volumes spanned Arctica, Asia, Europe, and America. Its scale and ambition occupies such an important place in Dutch history that it is included in the Canon of Dutch History, an official survey of 50 individuals, creations, or events that chart the historical development of the Netherlands.TASCHEN s meticulous reprint brings this luxurious Baroque wonder into the hands of modern readers. In an age of digitized cartography and global connectivity, it celebrates the steadfast beauty of quality print and restores the wonder of an exploratory age, in which Blaeu s native Amsterdam was a center of international trade and discovery.True to TASCHEN s optimum reproduction standards, the edition derives from the Austrian National Library s complete colored and gold-heightened copy of Atlas Maior, assuring the finest detail and quality. University of Amsterdam s Peter van der Krogt introduces the historical and cultural significance of the atlas while providing detailed descriptions for individual maps, revealing the full scale and ambition of Blaeu s masterwork. As much an artwork as a cartographical adventure, the book comes with a slipcase that converts neatly into a display bookstand.Text in English, French, and German"

  • Global Political Economy of Raul Prebisch
    Global Political Economy of Raul Prebisch
    ISBN: 9781138219779
    Title: Global Political Economy of Raul Prebisch

    The Global Political Economy of Ra#65533;l Prebisch offers an original analysis of global political economy by examining it through the ideas, agency and influence of one of its most important thinkers, leaders and personalities. Prebisch#65533;s ground-breaking ideas as an economist #65533; the terms-of-trade thesis and the economic case for state-led industrialization #65533; changed the world and guided economic policy across the global South. As the head of two UN bodies #65533; the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and later the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) #65533; he was at the frontline of key North#65533;South political struggles for a fairer global distribution of wealth and the regulation of transnational corporations.

    Prebisch increasingly came to view political power, not just economic capabilities, as pivotal to shaping the institutions and rules of the world economy. This book contextualizes his ideas, exploring how they were used and their relevance to contemporary issues. The neoliberal turn in economics in North America, Western Europe and across the global South led to an active discrediting of Prebisch#65533;s theories and this volume offers an important corrective, reintroducing current and future generations of scholars and students to this important body of work and allowing a richer understanding of past and ongoing political struggles.

    Did you know that 'flavour of the month' originated in a marketing campaign in American ice-cream parlours in the 1940s, when a particular flavour would be specially promoted for a month at a time?

These and many more idioms are explained and put into context in this third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English Idioms. The volume takes a fresh look at the idiomatic phrases and sayings that make English the rich and intriguing language that it is. This major new edition contains entries for over 6,000 idioms, including 700 entirely new entries, based on Oxford's language monitoring and the ongoing third edition ofthe Oxford English Dictionary. These include a range of recently established idioms such as 'the elephant in the corner', 'go figure', 'like a rat up a drainpipe', 'sex on legs', 'step up to the plate', 'too posh to push', 'a walk in the park', 'win ugly'. This edition also features a greatlyincreased number of cross-references, making it ideal for quick reference. Many entries include additional features which give more detailed background on the idiom in question.

    ISBN: 9780199206872
    Title: Shorter Oxford English Dictionary 6ed
    Author: 6TH EDITION

    From the beginning, the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary was intended to be an abridgement of the full Oxford English Dictionary. The first editor, William Little, was appointed in 1902. He worked on it until his death in 1922, after which the dictionary was completed by H. W. Fowler, JessieCoulson, and C. T. Onions. The First Edition was published in 1933, in two volumes. The Second Edition, published in 1936, contained about 3,000 revisions and additions. The Third Edition (1944) contained an appendix of addenda and corrigenda, and this edition was reprinted several times with corrections and additions, the most significant being in 1973, with enlarged addenda (nowrunning to over 70 pages) and a major revision of all the etymologies. The New Shorter was prepared under the editorship of Lesley Brown 1980-1993. It was the first complete revision of the dictionary, being in fact not so much an overhaul of the existing text as a reabridgement of the OED and its Supplements. The Fifth Edition was published in 2002, and reverted tothe name Shorter Oxford English Dictionary to emphasize the link between this 2-volume dictionary and the original 20-volume OED. The Sixth Edition of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary provides a complete update of this unique reference work. Based on the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary, the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary contains an incredible one-third of the coverage of the Oxford English Dictionary, is justone-tenth of the size, and includes all words in current English from 1700 to the present day, plus the vocabulary of Shakespeare, the Bible and other major works in English from before 1700. The new edition, with a new introductory essay by language expert David Crystal on the History of English, includes 2,500 new words and senses, plus thousands of antedatings of existing words, drawing on the huge ongoing research project for the Oxford English Dictionary and the wealth ofinformation on language in use provided by the Oxford English Corpus. In addition, the work includes many new quotations from recent authors, a refreshed design, and a complete review of spelling forms and defining vocabulary, making it the most authoritative reference work available for both modernand historical English. This Deluxe Edition also contains a CD-ROM. The brand-new software features the full text of the dictionary and is designed to run on both Windows and Apple Macintosh computers. With an elegant interface providing quick and intutitive searching, it also has advanced searching facilities for in-depthexploration, allowing searching of the definitions, eytmologies, subject, geographical region of use, register, and source language, as well as the ability to limit searches by the date of a word's first recorded usage. There is also an automatic look-up facility; by double-clicking on a word in adocument or web page the user can view the entry for that word. Sound recordings enable you to listen to standard British pronunciations for over 100,000 words. In addition, the CD-ROM features a crossword puzzle solver and anagram solver. The new edition of the CD-ROM is designed to benefit all users. It can be controlled solely from the keyboard for the convenience of users who prefer not to use a mouse, and offers a simple and attractive interface which is fully customizable, making it easy to change the text size, fonts, and thecolor of both text and background. For scholars and everyone with a serious interest in the English language, the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary is an unrivalled resource, providing a unique description of the historical development of the language together with excellent coverage of current English. The Sixth Edition showcasesthe best of the traditional strengths of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, while bringing it up to date in its scholarship and research, in the design and layout, and in its treatment of the changing face of English.
