Faith Man - Wild Adventures with a Faithful God - The Story of David Lamb (Paperback): Ralph Turner, David Lamb Faith Man - Wild Adventures with a Faithful God - The Story of David Lamb (Paperback)
Ralph Turner, David Lamb
R284 Discovery Miles 2 840 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Dave Lamb is about to take you on a roller-coaster ride. From drugs and drink, burglary and borstal to a faith-filled life with the presence of Jesus, this is one exciting adventure! From one supernatural event after another, one miracle after another the pace is breath-taking, but at the same time Dave is open and honest about the challenges and opposition he has had to face in the outworking of God's will for his life. His wife Joyce has been his companion throughout. There have been times of great anointing and blessing, times of needing to cry out to God in desperation. Yet through everything this is a wonderful testimony to the love, mercy and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ! A riveting, modern-day book of Acts that will re-ignite your faith to believe that nothing is impossible with God! Karen Davis, Worship Director, Co-founder Carmel Congregation, Mt Carmel, Israel

Forest Landscape Restoration - Integrating Natural and Social Sciences (Paperback, 2012 ed.): John Stanturf, David Lamb, Palle... Forest Landscape Restoration - Integrating Natural and Social Sciences (Paperback, 2012 ed.)
John Stanturf, David Lamb, Palle Madsen
R4,696 Discovery Miles 46 960 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

Restoration ecology, as a scientific discipline, developed from practitioners' efforts to restore degraded land, with interest also coming from applied ecologists attracted by the potential for restoration projects to apply and/or test developing theories on ecosystem development. Since then, forest landscape restoration (FLR) has emerged as a practical approach to forest restoration particularly in developing countries, where an approach which is both large-scale and focuses on meeting human needs is required. Yet despite increased investigation into both the biological and social aspects of FLR, there has so far been little success in systematically integrating these two complementary strands. Bringing experts in landscape studies, natural resource management and forest restoration, together with those experienced in conflict management, environmental economics and urban studies, this book bridges that gap to define the nature and potential of FLR as a truly multidisciplinary approach to a global environmental problem. The book will provide a valuable reference to graduate students and researchers interested in ecological restoration, forest ecology and management, as well as to professionals in environmental restoration, natural resource management, conservation, and environmental policy.

A Goal-Oriented Approach to Forest Landscape Restoration (Paperback, 2012 ed.): John Stanturf, Palle Madsen, David Lamb A Goal-Oriented Approach to Forest Landscape Restoration (Paperback, 2012 ed.)
John Stanturf, Palle Madsen, David Lamb
R4,359 Discovery Miles 43 590 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

While restoration ecology has traditionally aimed to re-create some putative more 'natural' ecological state, forest landscape restoration (FLR) has emerged over the last decade as an approach aimed more at restoring natural functions, while focusing on meeting human needs. With a view to exploring the practical potential of this approach, this book draws together a team of experts from the natural and social sciences to discuss its success so far in addressing critical issues such as biodiversity, ecological function, and human livelihoods. Applying principles of landscape ecology, restoration ecology, planning theory and conflict management, the book presents a series of case studies which document the approach, and discusses how the approach can help with priority setting for the future. The book will provide a valuable reference to graduate students and researchers interested in ecological restoration, forest ecology and management, as well as to professionals in environmental restoration, natural resource management, conservation, and environmental policy.

Regreening the Bare Hills - Tropical Forest Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region (Hardcover, 2011 Ed.): David Lamb Regreening the Bare Hills - Tropical Forest Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region (Hardcover, 2011 Ed.)

In Regreening the Bare Hills: Tropical Forest Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region, David Lamb explores how reforestation might be carried out both to conserve biological diversity and to improve the livelihoods of the rural poor. While both issues have attracted considerable attention in recent years, this book takes a significant step, by integrating ecological and silvicultural knowledge within the context of the social and economic issues that can determine the success or failure of tropical forest landscape restoration. Describing new approaches to the reforestation of degraded lands in the Asia-Pacific tropics, the book reviews current approaches to reforestation throughout the region, paying particular attention to those which incorporate native species - including in multi-species plantations. It presents case studies from across the Asia-Pacific region and discusses how the silvicultural methods needed to manage these 'new' plantations will differ from conventional methods. It also explores how reforestation might be made more attractive to smallholders and how trade-offs between production and conservation are most easily made at a landscape scale. The book concludes with a discussion of how future forest restoration may be affected by some current ecological and socio-economic trends now underway. The book represents a valuable resource for reforestation managers and policy makers wishing to promote these new silvicultural approaches, as well as for conservationists, development experts and researchers with an interest in forest restoration. Combining a theoretical-research perspective with practical aspects of restoration, the book will be equally valuable to practitioners and academics, while the lessons drawn from these discussions will have relevance elsewhere throughout the tropics.

When he left war-ravaged Vietnam some thirty years ago, journalist David Lamb averred "I didn't care if I ever saw the wretched country again." But in 1997, he found himself living in Hanoi, in charge of the "Los Angeles Times"'s first peacetime bureau and in the midst of a country on the move, as it progresses toward a free-market economy and divorces itself from the restrictive, isolationist policies established at the end of the war. This was a new country; in "Vietnam, Now," David Lamb brings it--and us--forward from its dark, distant past.
From the myriad personalities entwined in the dark, distant history of the war to those focused toward the future, Lamb reveals a rich and culturally diverse people as they share their memories of the country's past, and their hopes for a peacetime future. A portrait of a beautiful country and a remarkable, determined people, "Vietnam, Now" is a personal journey that will change the way we think of Vietnam, and perhaps the war as well.

The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence - A Philosophical Inquiry (Hardcover): David Lamb The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence - A Philosophical Inquiry (Hardcover)
David Lamb
R3,811 Discovery Miles 38 110 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

Is SETI a genuine scientific research programme? The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) has been given fresh impetus in the last years of the 20th century following developments in space science which go beyond speculation. The evidence that many stars are accompanied by planets, the detection of organic material in the circumstellar discs of which planets are created, and claims regarding microfossils on martian meteorites have all led to many new empirical searches. Against the background of these dramatic new developments in science, David Lamb evaluates claims to the contrary, and examines recent attempts to establish contact with other intelligent life forms. He also assesses competing theories on the origin of life on earth, discoveries of former solar planets, proposals for space colonies and the consequent technical and ethical issues. Most importantly he considers the benefits and drawbacks of communication with new life forms - how we should communicate and whether we actually can.

John Preston, Gonzalo Munevar, David Lamb
R4,043 Discovery Miles 40 430 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

This stimulating collection is devoted to the life and work of the most flamboyant of twentieth-century philosophers, Paul Feyerabend. Feyerabend's radical epistemological claims, and his stunning argument that there is no such thing as scientific method, were highly influential during his life and have only gained attention since his death in 1994. The essays that make up this volume, written by some of today's most respected philosophers of science, many of whom knew Feyerabend as students and colleagues, cover the diverse themes in his extensive body of work and present a personal account of this fascinating thinker.

The Africans (Paperback, With a New Preface and Epilogue, Vintage Books Ed): David Lamb The Africans (Paperback, With a New Preface and Epilogue, Vintage Books Ed)
David Lamb
R430 Discovery Miles 4 300 Out of stock

During the four years he spent in black Africa as the bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, David Lamb traveled through almost every country south of the Sahara, logging more than 300,000 miles. He talked to presidents and guerrilla leaders, university professors and witch doctors. He bounced from wars to coups oceans apart, catching midnight flights to little-known countries where supposedly decent people were doing unspeakable things to one another. In the tradition of John Gunther's Inside Africa, The Africans is an extraordinary combination of analysis and adventure. Part travelogue, part contemporary history, it is a portrait of a continent that sometimes seems hell-bent on destroying itself, and of people who are as courageous as they are long-suffering.

The Arabs is widely considered one of the essential books for understanding the Middle East and the peoples who live there. David Lamb, who spent years as a correspondent in Cairo, explores the Arabs’ religious, political, and cultural views, noting the differences and key similarities between the many segments of the Arab world. He explains Arab attitudes and actions toward the West, including the growth of terrorism, and situates current events in a larger historical backdrop that goes back more than a thousand years.

Now thoroughly revised and updated, The Arabs takes the story up to 2001. Lamb analyzes the developments that led to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and helps the reader to understand how things got to that point. A veteran journalist, Lamb combines his extensive experience in covering international politics with his deeply informed insider’s knowledge to provide an intimate portrait of the Arab world today.

David Lamb, Don Gilmour
R425 Discovery Miles 4 250 Out of stock

Large areas of the world's forests have been lost or degraded and landscapes everywhere are being simplified by current land-use practices. In this publication, Lamb and Gilmour present approaches to restoring and rehabilitating the vast areas of degraded, fragmented and modified forests which cover much of the world. They argue that by applying best practice at the site level it is possible to enhance socio-economic and ecological gains at the landscape level. This book provides an important contribution towards the objectives of the Forest Landscape Restoration approach and is essential reading for practitioners and decision makers involved in forest restoration.
