  • - Venligboere, nærvarme og trivselstanter - hvordan lokale fællesskaber genskaber velfærden
    af Jacob Bundsgaard, Johannes Lundsfryd & Vibe Klarup
    198,95 kr.

    Lokale fællesskaber kan løse komplekse problemer som klima, social arv og sundhed. I Rodskud kan man læse om en lang række eksempler på, at borgere, foreninger, virksomheder og kommuner samarbejder på kryds og tværs for at løse komplekse samfundsproblemer som fx at øge sundhed, bryde den sociale arv, forbedre klimaet eller at få flere tilflyttere til en ellers hensygnende landsdel.Løsningerne er flyttet ud af rådhusene – og især ud af centraladministrationen. Forfatterne fremhæver, at og hvordan de bedste kommuner evner at give plads til borgernes handlekraft og sætte sig i spidsen for forandringerne.Johannes Lundsfryd, Vibe Klarup og Jacob Bundsgaard argumenterer for, at vi får brug for politikere, der kan sætte retning og identificere, hvilke enkeltsager som kan skaleres op, og som især kan udvikle eller understøtte de lokale løsninger på længere sigt – med perspektiv til hele landet.

  • - Fællesskaber i Danmark
    af Jane Sandberg
    197,95 kr.

    Come Together handler om de mange frivillige fællesskaber, der pibler frem i Danmark. Mennesker fra både land og by mødes for at løfte mange af de almennyttige opgaver, som velfærdsstaten tidligere har taget sig af. Når systemerne kollapser, griber vi fat i hinanden – uden om de etablerede kommandoveje. Forfatter Jane Sandberg stiller de relevante spørgsmål om, hvilke opgaver vi i fremtiden vil kunne forvente, at velfærdssamfundet stadig løfter, og hvilke der kan kun løftes, hvis frivillige hænder griber?Come Together går tæt på 24 udvalgte fællesskaber i hele landet. Fællesskaber, hvor mennesker mødes for at gøre noget sammen, fordi de kender værdien af at løfte i flok. De spiser eller motionerer sammen; de dyrker deres grøntsager i fællesskab, de hjælper hinanden med at reparere ting, der er gået i stykker, eller skabe rammer, som afhjælper ensomhed. Det er det almenmenneskelige og relationerne, der er det vigtigste. Mødet og samtalen mellem mennesker skaber kontakt på tværs af kulturelle, sociale, politiske og generationsmæssige skel. I Come Together beskrives de enkelte initiativer. Der er interviews med dem, der fik idéerne – og gode råd til andre, som gerne selv vil i gang med at skabe nye fællesskaber. Bogen skildrer også udviklingen af fællesskabs-Danmark fra andelsbevægelsen over brugsforeninger og frivillige i sportsforeninger til Folkehuset Absalon på Vesterbro. De udvalgte fællesskaber er best-practice, og de kan fungere som en guide for kommende fællesskabsinitiativer ud fra en betragtning om, at vi kan noget helt særligt med fællesskaber i Danmark.Jane Sandberg har siden 2015 været direktør for Enigma – Museum for post, tele og kommunikation. Hun er cand.phil. i kunsthistorie, journalist og har desuden en master i kommunikation. Hun har tidligere bl.a. været direktør i Akademisk Arkitektforening samt museumsdirektør på Trapholt og Øregaard Museum. Jane Sandberg har skrevet flere bøger, senest Bornholm, Bornholm, Bornholm (sammen med Pernille Gjede).

    Composed of stories, fragmentary essays, and even press releases Stagg has been commissioned to write, Artless captures the media landscape lived and generated in New York during the past half decade. Since the 2016 publication of her debut novel Surveys, Stagg has positioned herself as an in-demand expert on--and critic of--the psychic experience of self-mythology within the cruelly optimistic metaverse of infinite branding. Part voyeur and part participant, Stagg continues her exploration of the branded identity and its elusive, bottomless desire for authenticity.

  • - Democracy and Inequality in São Paulo and Johannesburg
    af Benjamin H Bradlow
    251,95 - 781,95 kr.

    Why some cities are more effective than others at reducing inequalities in the built environment: urban governance in São Paulo and Johannesburg For the first time in history, most people live in cities. One in seven are living in slums, the most excluded parts of cities, in which the basics of urban life--including adequate housing, accessible sanitation, and reliable transportation--are largely unavailable. Why are some cities more successful than others in reducing inequalities in the built environment? In Urban Power, Benjamin Bradlow explores this question, examining the effectiveness of urban governance in two "megacities" in young democracies: São Paulo, Brazil, and Johannesburg, South Africa. Both cities came out of periods of authoritarian rule with similarly high inequalities and similar policy priorities to lower them. And yet São Paulo has been far more successful than Johannesburg in improving access to basic urban goods. Bradlow examines the relationships between local government bureaucracies and urban social movements that have shaped these outcomes. Drawing on sixteen months of fieldwork in both cities, including interviews with informants from government agencies, political leadership, social movements, private developers, bus companies, and water and sanitation companies, Bradlow details the political and professional conflicts between and within movements, governments, private corporations, and political parties. He proposes a bold theoretical approach for a new global urban sociology that focuses on variations in the coordination of local governing power, arguing that the concepts of "embeddedness" and "cohesion" explain processes of change that bridge external social mobilization and the internal coordinating capacity of local government to implement policy changes.

    To the best of my knowledge understandably when I first saw the New Yorkers, I was in a state of euphoria concerning the awesome lifestyles of the great people on earth. I choked out a few words the first time I interacted with them. I immediately realized there is so much more to explore about their characteristics and to create a highly readable book about them to the world's profundity of their lifestyles.Reading this book will be more than ecstatic to add more time to your readings, and have you on the edge of your seat or bed, making you want to stay in one place to turn the last pages or finish the book. So sweet without honey.Ecstatically, a great way to spend your ample time due to any action they take is complex and interesting scenario characters that deliver good reading attention, and an impressive array of characteristics.Writing about New Yorkers' lifestyles is entertaining and blends them all beautifully together, never letting the book drop, keeping the reading flawlessly intact, and riveting. Reading about New Yorkers has no stopping, especially about their insatiable educational background that refutes the imbued from their respective parents.They are talented, expressive, sophisticated, sexy, beautiful, courageous, and controversial, tending to conform to societal norms when it comes to dress codes and celebrating their beauty with clothes that accentuate their style and look dreary and bereft and elegant.New Yorkers' food IQ refrain from binging nonstop on an appalling diet of fried potato chips, jumbo sausages, fried eggs, and heavily salted bacon. They fix the holiday period especially a scheduled period during which their activities in schools or other regular business are suspended.New Yorkers' lifestyles in sports are phenomenal especially when it comes to the Super Bowl, with a giant appetite that stands as a record breaker every year.Music first originated in Africa, but the transformation of its quality digital sound has long been transferred to New York and America as a whole in decades.

  • - Harnessing the Power of the Natural World to Survive a Changing Planet
    af Nadina Galle
    322,95 kr.

    In the tradition of Elizabeth Kolbert and Jonathan Doerr, The Nature of Our Cities is a stirring exploration of how scientists from around the world are harnessing local ecology and innovative technology to protect the planet's cities from the effects of climate change.When it comes to nature, most people romanticize bucolic mountain scenery and verdant pine forests, but anyone who's ever lived in a city can tell you that nature has just as vital a role to play in urban landscapes. And with climate change altering life and mental health everywhere, nature can do more to aid and protect our cities, offering the potential to solve problems as diverse as flood preparation and wildfire management. As ecological engineer Dr. Nadina Galle argues, nature is our most critical infrastructure for tackling the climate crisis. It just needs a little help.A fellow at MIT's Senseble City Lab and selected for Forbes' 30 under 30 list, Galle has been at the forefront of the growing movement to use nature and technology together to prepare urban life for the climate challenges upon us. Now, in The Nature of Our Cities, she embarks on a journey as fascinating as it is pressing, showing how scientists and engineers from around the world are harnessing the power of technology and the natural world to save their cities, a phenomenon she calls the "Internet of Nature." Traveling the globe, Galle examines how urban nature, long an afterthought for many, actually points the way toward a livable future for cities. She reveals how technology can help nature navigate this precarious moment with advances such as: firefighting robots inspired by ancient forest wisdom, sensors that achieve 99% tree survival in increasingly dry, hot summers, and innovative smart ponds that collect and manage water surges from extreme weather.Optimistic in spirit yet pragmatic in approach, Galle writes persuasively that the future of urban life depends on balancing the natural world with the technology that can help sustain it. By turns clear-eyed and lyrical, The Nature of Our Cities marks the emergence of an invigorating, prescient new talent in nature writing.

    This volume is an empirical study examining the extent to which historic and iconic architecture and spaces in Zimbabwe - particularly in urban areas - have been mobilized to construct and reconstruct identities. The author explores the question of traditional and political architecture through analysis of a variety of structures, including monuments, museums, and indigenous and state buildings. Special attention is paid to the soapstone-carved Zimbabwe Bird, which for years has served as the national emblem. Overall, this book argues that while the production and use of architectural products and spaces have been regarded symbols of collective identity, they have also served as expressions of power and control.

    Fresh out of college, Brandon Harris needs an affordable place to live?a search that leads him to the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Making Rent in Bed-Stuy explores the history and cultural importance of Brooklyn's largest historically black community as it illuminates the experiences of one young man at the dawn of an era in which urban class warfare is politely referred to as gentrification. Bookended by two different breakups, a roommate and a lover, both from the white American elite, the memoir interweaves Harris's story with a serious look at some of Bed-Stuy's most salient legacies. From the childhood of Jay-Z to the disappointing late career of Spike Lee, Making Rent in Bed-Stuy takes account of the famous heart of black Brooklyn's cultural scene. Recounting Harris's own encounters with figures as far-flung as Lena Dunham, doyenne of the Brooklyn zeitgeist who would never take the J train into Bed-Stuy to catch a house party, to Paul MacLeod, a gun-toting Mississippi man who makes a living charging $5 for a tour of his extensive Elvis collection?Making Rent in Bed-Stuy poignantly captures what happens when youthful idealism clashes head-on with adult reality.Blending in-depth reportage and personal narrative, Making Rent in Bed-Stuy investigates the disappointments and ironies of millennial life, revealing Harris's radicalization and the things he lost, and gained, along the way.

    In this book, Hong Kong is seen as a labyrinth, a postmodern site of capitalist desires, and a panoptic space both homely and unhomely. The author maps out various specific locations of the city through the intertwined disciplines of street photography, autoethnography and psychogeography. By meandering through the urban landscape and taking street photographs, this form of practice is open to the various metaphors, atmospheres and visual discourses offered up by the street scenes. The result is a practice-led research project informed by both documentary and creative writing that seeks to articulate thinking via the process of art-making. As a research project on the affective mapping of places in the city, the book examines what Hong Kong is, as thought and felt by the person on the street. It explores the everyday experiences afforded by the city through the figure of the flâneur wandering in shopping districts and street markets. Through hisown street photographs and drawing from the writings of Byung-Chul Han, Walter Benjamin and Michel de Certeau, the author explores feelings, affects, and states of mind as he explores the city and its social life.

    An elegy-angry, funny, and powerfully detailed-about the slow death of a Detroit auto plant and an American way of life. How does a country dismantle a century's worth of its industrial heritage? To answer that question, Paul Clemens investigates the 2006 closing of one of America's most potent symbols: a Detroit auto plant. Prior to its closing, the Budd Company stamping plant on Detroit's East Side, built in 1919, was one of the oldest active auto plants in America's foremost industrial city-one whose history includes the nation's proudest moments and those of its working class. Its closing also reflects the character of the country in a new era-the sad, brutal process of picking it apart and sending it, piece by piece, to the countries that now have use for its machines. Punching Out is an up-close report, at once tender and angry, from the meanest, sharpest edge of America's deindustrializa­tion, and a lament for a working-class culture that once defined a prosperous America-and that is now on the verge of eco­nomic extinction.

    We are, all of us, intimately familiar with inequalities. Whether finding somewhere to live, walking in the street, following the news, negotiating international travel, or in our working and personal lives, subtle and crude hierarchies shape our lived experience. How the other half lives contributes detailed, multidisciplinary and qualitative explorations of the everyday social and spatial realities of inequality, drawing new lines from Manchester to Milan, from Brighton to Bologna. How the other half lives is a resource to navigate an unequal world, oriented around three key understandings of inequality as contingent, as intersectional and as interrelated. The book focuses attention on the differences, similarities and in-between points where 'the other halves' meet, to provoke new and useful perspectives on inequalities. It considers the connections between the accumulation of profound wealth and impoverished communities, the banal decisions by those in the seats of power and increasing levels of violence in austerity-wracked neighbourhoods, and between a world of smooth mobility and oppressive borders. How the other half lives is uniquely structured as a series of oppositions between peaks and troughs, with each chapter focusing on a specific subject, including: housing, urban design, place-making, the state, cultures of inequality and transnational mobility. With a preface from the Guardian's Zoe Williams and concluding remarks from Professor Rowland Atkinson, this book will appeal to undergraduates and academic readers in the social sciences who are interested in contemporary social and spatial inequalities.

  • af Gregory M. Fulkerson
    369,95 - 835,95 kr.

    Gregory M. Fulkerson offers a complete portrait of what communities are, how they work, and how they are embedded in urbanrural systems at regional, national, and global scales. After explaining the concept of urbanrural systems, Fulkerson walks through the central dynamics of environmental demography, political economy, culture, social interaction, the built environment, and community connections. His focus on urbanrural systems ensures that communities are understood as nodes within a network, overcoming the tendency to view them as self-contained. Each chapter in Community in UrbanRural Systems: Theory, Planning, and Development offers a blend of classical and contemporary theories and concludes with relevant planning considerations. An additional chapter on community development provides strategies for translating planning considerations into action. The conclusion offers insights into long-term principles of community sustainability and justice.

    This book concerns the values and practices of participation in municipal public parks, and the connections they have with cultural policy, urbanism, and social life. Adopting a critical cultural policy lens, it identifies the park as a mundane but extraordinarily treasured place for the production and exchange of cultural values, regulation, resistance, and the practising of citizenship. Drawing on extensive mixed-methods research on everyday participation in diverse local cultural ecosystems in England and Scotland, the book examines the social lives of parks and their users, and the important public values that are generated through their common stewardship and usership. It presents case studies of parks and co-located museums as cultural public spheres, which promote both commoning and commodification. These are contextualized by histories of municipal parkmaking from the nineteenth century to the present and related to the making of local government and toother civic and cultural institutions.The book highlights contemporary issues of austerity, marketisation and de-municipalisation within local government in the context of urban development. It positions the public park as fundamental to democratic cultural governance and makes the case for the primacy of public trust, ownership, and park equity in safeguarding the right to the city.
