Intertidal Deposits: River Mouths, Tidal Flats, and Coastal Lagoons combines the authors personal and professional experience with the mass of available literature to present a cohesive overview of intertidal deposits and the widely diverse conditions of their formation worldwide. This includes the strong influence of water movements, climate, sediment particle characteristics, vegetation, fauna, and man. Intertidal areas are important for many reasons both scientifically and economically and recently, a growing concern for conservation of these fragile regions strives to preserve and protect their natural balance. This book, written by an international expert in the field, concentrates on the more important intertidal areas distinguished by size and morphology, tidal range, the degree and type of vegetational cover, the amount and type of benthic fauna, the extent of human exploitation, and the degree of previous study.

Von seinem Vater und anderen Priestern lernt dieser über die Veden, deren philosophische Gedanken, religiöse Gebote und Anleitungen zu Gebeten und Ritualen. Weil er sieht, wie diese trotz heiliger Waschungen und Gebete zur Reinigung von den Sünden nicht aus dem Samsara entkommen, widmet er sein Leben der Suche nach dem Atman, dem All-einen, das in jedem Menschen ist.

Brooklyn has all the features of a "global borough": It is a base of immigrant labor and ethnically diverse communities, of social and cultural capital, of global transportation, cultural production, and policy innovation. At once a model of sustainable urbanization and overdevelopment, the question is now: What will become of Global Brooklyn? Tracing the emergence of Brooklyn from village outpost to global borough, Brooklyn Tides investigates the nature and consequences of global forces that have crossed the East River and identifies alternative models for urban development in global capitalism. Benjamin Shepard and Mark Noonan provide a unique ethnographic reading of the literature, social activism, and changing tides impacting this ever-transforming space. Cover and interior images of a rapidly transforming global borough by photographer Caroline Shepard.

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.

Die Autobiographie des großen Neil Young »Down by the River«, »Heart of Gold«, »Hey, Hey, My My« – mit seinen Songs hat Neil Young die Herzen ganzer Generationen von Musikliebhabern erobert. Ein vielseitiger Künstler par excellence, ist er bis heute einer der bekanntesten und beliebtesten Musiker der Welt, der nun seine seit Langem erwartete Autobiographie vorlegt.Neil Young ist eine herausragende Figur in der Geschichte des Rock’n’Roll und der Popkultur der letzten vier Jahrzehnte. Seit seinen frühen Tagen in den 1960ern mit Buffalo Springfield, bahnbrechenden Soloalben wie »After the Gold Rush« und »Harvest«, Megaselleralben mit Crosby, Stills & Nash bis hin zu seiner Inthronisierung als Pate des Grunge, ist Neil Young der Inbegriff des kompromisslosen Künstlers, der allein seinem Herzen und Verstand folgt.In seiner Autobiographie gibt er Einblick in sein Privatleben und die Wurzeln seiner musikalischen Kreativität. Das Buch ist eine Reise, die von den schneebedeckten Landschaften Ontarios über die LSD-Boulevards im Los Angeles der 1960er-Jahre bis hin zum heutigen paradiesischen Rückzugsort Hawaii führt. Verblüffend offen und witzig, setzt Neil Youngs Autobiographie neue Maßstäbe in der Musikgeschichtsschreibung. »Neil Young hat stets die ungezügelte Leidenschaft eines Künstlers an den Tag gelegt, der weiß, dass man sich ständig neu erfinden muss, um nicht auszubrennen. Aus diesem Grund ist er bis heute einer der bedeutendsten Künstler der Rock’n’Roll-Ära.« Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam
