Published at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Sustainable Landscape Construction took a new approach to what was then a nearly new subject: how to construct outdoor environments based on principles of sustainability. This enormously influential book helped to spur a movement that has taken root around the U.S. and throughout the world. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most important developments in this landscape revolution, along with the latest scientific research in the field. It has been expanded to provide even more ideas for designing, building, and maintaining environmentally sensitive landscapes. It is essential reading for everyone with an interest in “green” landscape design. Like its predecessor, the new edition of Sustainable Landscape Construction is organized around principles that reflect the authors’ desire to put environmental ethics into practice. Each chapter focuses on one over-arching idea. These principles of sustainability are clearly articulated and are developed through specific examples. More than 100 projects from around the globe are described and illustrated. A new chapter details ways in which landscape architectural practice must respond to the dangers posed by fire, floods, drought, extreme storms, and climate change. Sustainable Landscape Construction is a crucial complement to basic landscape construction texts, and is a one-of-a-kind reference for professionals, students, and concerned citizens.

Geister, Ghoule, Grabgeflüster: Die Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. sind allem gewachsen LONDON, ENGLAND: In den Straßen geht des Nachts das Grauen um. Unerklärliche Todesfälle ereignen sich, Menschen verschwinden und um die Ecken wabern Schatten, die sich nur zu oft in tödliche von Geisterwesen ausgesandte Plasmanebel verwandeln. Denn seit Jahrzehnten wird Großbritannien von einer wahren Epidemie an Geistererscheinungen heimgesucht. Überall im Land haben sich Agenturen gebildet, die in den heimgesuchten Häusern Austreibungen vornehmen. Hochgefährliche Unternehmungen bei denen sie, obwohl mit Bannkreisketten, Degen und Leuchtbomben ausgerüstet, nicht selten ihr Leben riskieren. So auch die drei Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. Dem jungen Team um den charismatischen Anthony Lockwood ist allerdings bei einem Einsatz ein fatales Missgeschick passiert. Um die Klage abwenden und den Schadenersatz dafür aufbringen zu können, müssen die drei Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. einen hochgefährlichen und zutiefst dubiosen Auftrag annehmen. Dieser führt sie in eines der verrufensten Herrenhäuser des Landes und stellt sie auf eine Probe, bei der es um nichts weniger als Leben oder Tod geht ...

Wir leben in einer technologischen Sackgasse. Zwar suggeriert die Globalisierung technischen Fortschritt, doch das vermeintlich Neue, sind vor allem Kopien des Bestehenden. Peter Thiel, Silicon-Valley-Insider und in der Wirtschaftscommunity bestens bekannter Innovationstreiber ist überzeugt: Globalisierung ist kein Fortschritt, Konkurrenz ist schädlich und nur Monopole sind nachhaltig erfolgreich. Er zeigt: Wahre Innovation entsteht nicht horizontal, sondern sprunghaft - from Zero to One. Um die Zukunft zu erobern, reicht es nicht, der Beste zu sein. Gründer müssen aus dem Wettkampf des Immergleichen heraustreten und völlig neue Märkte erobern. Wie man wirklich Neues erfindet, enthüllt seine beeindruckende Anleitung zum visionären Querdenken. Ein Appell für einen Startup der ganzen Gesellschaft.
