Following the successful first edition, this revised and updated book continues to provide students with a detailed guide to the planning and procedures they must consider when preparing dissertations in geography, environmental science and geology. Written by well-respected authors in the field, it takes new sources, improved technology in production of the dissertation, and changes in teaching style into account. Guiding the reader through each stage in the process, it deals with many of the common concerns and issues involved in dissertation writing, ranging from deciding which topic to work on, through research design and data collection, to handing in the final bound volume. With an extended consideration of different types of data (qualitative, quantitative and spatial) and a broad reflection on different approaches to problem solving, this useful text suggests practical ways of dealing with the tasks involved, locates the common pitfalls associated with each, and helps readers write the best dissertation possible.

"American colleges and universities have been relatively quick to address the challenge of sustainability in operations. Ironically, they have been slower to respond in regard to their core mission: educating students. Teaching sustainability aims to redress this shortcoming by opening doors to education for sustainability in the humanities and social sciences. The essays in this collection are richly diverse. They investigate ways sustainability education "pushes back" against traditional disciplines while it simultaneously benefits from the perspectives and skills these fields have to offer. They also address "big questions" such as how to make education meaningful, how to examine hidden assumptions underlying current curricula, and how a focus on sustainability can answer critics of contemporary higher education. The heart of teaching sustainability is reflection and advice on pedagogy. From these richly diverse case studies important common themes emerge: the "symbiotic relationship" between classroom and campus operations; techniques for transforming the campus itself from merely a setting to a "learning laboratory;" and the potential of community partners for teaching sense of place. An equally significant theme is the overlap between sustainability education and emerging best practice in pedagogy. Essays on theory and practice, individual and collaborative projects, service learning, and consequential activities, all exemplify how sustainability and deep learning go hand and hand. Like sustainability itself, the volume infuses theory with practical application. The contributors demonstrate the ways in which a single course can serve as a powerful change agent for an entire campus, how to build bridges between faculty and administrators, and even how to move forward on modest budgets. The authors themselves constitute a network of advisors." -- Publisher's description

Und der Albtraum jedes Mörders. Max folgt der blutigen Fährte des Killers von Londons Hinterhöfen und hell erleuchteten Straßen bis in die dunkelsten Winkel des Internets. Mit jeder neuen Leiche kommt er dem Täter ein Stück näher - doch damit bringt er nicht nur sich selbst, sondern auch alle, die er liebt, in tödliche Gefahr ...

Detective Max Wolfe ist zurück London an einem klirrend kalten Neujahrstag. Detective Max Wolfe ist entsetzt: In einer noblen Wohnanlage wurde die Familie Wood ermordet. Mit einer Waffe, die sonst nur bei der Schlachtung von Tieren zum Einsatz kommt: einem Bolzenschussgerät. Allein der jüngste Sohn scheint verschont worden zu sein, doch von ihm fehlt jede Spur. Hat der Killer ihn in seiner Gewalt? Max bleibt nicht viel Zeit. Seine Ermittlungen führen ihn weit in die Vergangenheit, zu einem Mann, der vor 30 Jahren eine Familie tötete, auf die gleiche brutale Art. Doch der ist mittlerweile alt und sterbenskrank. Trotzdem verbirgt er etwas, das spürt Max - eine Ahnung, die ihn ins Grab bringen wird, und zwar buchstäblich ... Tony Parsons Bestseller-Krimi-Reihe geht weiter: Der zweite Fall für Detective Wolfe
