`An exciting new writer - sharp, compelling and original' Mark Lawrence Years have passed since the Vagrant journeyed to the Shining City, Vesper in arm and Gamma's sword in hand. Since then the world has changed. Vesper, following the footsteps of her father, journeyed to the breach and closed the tear between worlds, protecting the last of humanity, but also trapping the infernal horde and all those that fell to its corruptions: willing or otherwise. In this new age it is Vesper who leads the charge towards unity and peace, with seemingly nothing standing between the world and a bright new future. That is until eyes open. And The Seven awaken.

The Vagrant is his name. He has no other. Years have passed since humanity's destruction emerged from the Breach. Friendless and alone he walks across a desolate, war-torn landscape. As each day passes the world tumbles further into depravity, bent and twisted by the new order, corrupted by the Usurper, the enemy, and his infernal horde. His purpose is to reach the Shining City, last bastion of the human race, and deliver the only weapon that may make a difference in the ongoing war. What little hope remains is dying. Abandoned by its leader, The Seven, and its heroes, The Seraph Knights, the last defences of a once great civilisation are crumbling into dust. But the Shining City is far away and the world is a very dangerous place.

R442 Discovery Miles 4 420 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

All 130 episodes from the classic animated series. During the first season, the world of Thundera is in crisis. The planet's structure has become unstable and is near collapse.

With their destruction imminent, Thundera's denizens, known as the Thundercats, escape in a spaceship and plot a course for a new home. While in transit, the Thundercats are attacked by evil mutants and their craft is irreparably damaged. Jaga, the eldest Thundercat, sacrifices himself in order to pilot the ship safely to its destination: Third Earth.

In the second season, when a recurring vision torments leader Lion-O, the Thundercats realise that three more Thunderians must have survived the destruction of Thundera. A daring rescue mission pits the Thundercats against the villainous Mumm-Ra, who has strengthened his forces of mutants and broadened the range of his dark territories. Ultimately Lion-O saves the new Thunderians, but the cost is high: Mumm-Ra becomes even more powerful and more determined to destroy the Thundercats.

People Cities - The Life and Legacy of Jan Gehl (Hardcover, 2nd None Ed.): Annie Matan, Peter Newman People Cities - The Life and Legacy of Jan Gehl (Hardcover, 2nd None Ed.)

"A good city is like a good-party," you stay for longer than you plan," says Danish architect Jan Gehl. He believes that good architecture is not about form, but about the interaction between-form and life. Over-the last 50 years, Gehl has changed the way that we think about architecture and city planning, moving from the Modernist separation of uses to a human-scale approach inviting people to use their cities. At a time when growing numbers are populating cities, planning urban spaces to be humane, safe, and open to 'all' is ever-more critical. With the help of Jan Gehl, we can all become advocates for human scale design. Jan's research, theories, and strategies have been helping cities to reclaim their public space and recover from the great post-WWII car invasion. His work has influenced public space improvements in over 50 global cities, including New York, London, Moscow, Copenhagen, Melbourne, Sydney, and the authors' hometown of Perth. While much has been written by Jan Gehl about his approach and by others about his influence, this book tells the inside story of how he learned to Study urban spaces and implement his people-centred approach.People Cities discusses the work, theory, life, and influence of Jan Gehl from the perspective of those who have worked with him across the globe. Authors Matan and Newman celebrate Jan's role in changing the urban planning paradigm from an abstract, ideological modernism to a people-focused movement. It is organised around the creation of that movement, using key periods in Jan's working life as a structure. People Cities will inspire anyone who wants to create vibrant, human-scale cities and understand the ideas and work of an architect who has most influenced how we should and can design cities for people.

Resilient Cities - Responding to Peak Oil and Climate Change (Paperback): Peter Newman, Timothy Beatley, Heather Boyer Resilient Cities - Responding to Peak Oil and Climate Change (Paperback)
Peter Newman, Timothy Beatley, Heather Boyer
R521 R459 Discovery Miles 4 590 Save R62 (12%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This is a visionary guide to developing cities that are livable, sustainable, and 'resilient'. Half of the world's inhabitants now live in cities. In the next twenty years, the number of urban dwellers will swell to an estimated five billion people. With their inefficient transportation systems and poorly designed buildings, many cities - especially in the United States - consume enormous quantities of fossil fuels and emit high levels of greenhouse gases. But our planet is rapidly running out of the carbon-based fuels that have powered urban growth for centuries and we seem to be unable to curb our greenhouse gas emissions. Are the world's cities headed for inevitable collapse?The authors of this spirited book don't believe that oblivion is necessarily the destiny of urban areas. Instead, they believe that intelligent planning and visionary leadership can help cities meet the impending crises, and look to existing initiatives in cities around the world. Rather than responding with fear (as a legion of doomsaying prognosticators have done), they choose hope.First, they confront the problems, describing where we stand today in our use of oil and our contribution to climate change. They then present four possible outcomes for cities: 'collapse,' 'ruralized,' 'divided,' and 'resilient.' In response to their scenarios, they articulate how a new 'sustainable urbanism' could replace today's 'carbon-consuming urbanism.' They address in detail how new transportation systems and buildings can be feasibly developed to replace our present low-efficiency systems. In conclusion, they offer ten 'strategic steps' that any city can take toward greater sustainability and resilience.This is not a book filled with 'blue sky' theory (although blue skies will be a welcome result of its recommendations). Rather, it is packed with practical ideas, some of which are already working in cities today. It frankly admits that our cities have problems that will worsen if they are not addressed, but it suggests that these problems are solvable. And the time to begin solving them is now.

The world is facing an age of scarcity which will challenge all cities to reduce their resource footprint, especially carbon, improve biodiversity and at the same time continue to create economic opportunities and liveable places. This is green urbanism. Asian urban growth is leading the world in the rapidity of its change but how is it doing on green urbanism? This book finds emerging innovations and first signs of green urbanism in Asia and suggests they may be the guiding light for the rest of the world. The authors highlight seven archetypal cities exhibiting green urbanism: the renewable energy city, the bioregional carbon neutral city, the distributed city, the biophilic city, the eco-efficient city, the place-based city and the sustainable transport city. The book is a must-read for all who are concerned with the future of our cities as it instills hope that a greener urban future is possible.

What does it mean to be a resilient city in the age of a changing climate and growing inequity? As urban populations grow, how do we create efficient transportation systems, access to healthy green space, and lower-carbon buildings for all citizens? Peter Newman, Timothy Beatley, and Heather Boyer respond to these questions in the revised and updated edition of Resilient Cities. Since the first edition was published in 2009, interest in resilience has surged, in part due to increasingly frequent and deadly natural disasters, and in part due to the contribution of our cities to climate change. The number of new initiatives and approaches from citizens and all levels of government show the promise as well as the challenges of creating cities that are truly resilient. The authors' hopeful approach to creating cities that are not only resilient, but striving to become regenerative, is now organised around their characteristics of a resilient city.A resilient city is one that uses renewable and distributed energy; has an efficient and regenerative metabolism; offers inclusive and healthy places; fosters biophilic and naturally adaptive systems; is invested in disaster preparedness; and is designed around efficient urban fabrics that allow for sustainable mobility. Resilient Cities, Second Edition reveals how the resilient city characteristics have been achieved in communities around the globe. The authors offer stories, insights, and inspiration for urban planners, policymakers, and professionals interested in creating more sustainable, equitable, and, eventually, regenerative cities. Most importantly, the book is about overcoming fear and generating hope in our cities. Cities will need to claim a different future that helps us regenerate the whole planet, this is the challenge of resilient cities.

Embezzlement, mind control, hangovers and demented double crossings--they're all in a day's work in this outrageously raunchy animated comedy.

Excess noise and light challenge the ecological integrity of the natural environment, along with our enjoyment of the natural world. Although a substantive body of scientific and professional literature on quiet and darkness in national parks and related areas has developed over the past two decades, such work has been widely scattered over academic and professional journals in several environmental fields. This anthology brings together both new and previously published work on the topic. An introduction outlines the evolution of current thought about what constitutes national park resources and suggests a series of conceptual frameworks to inform management of natural quiet and natural darkness. Individual chapters address the biological, ecological, and experiential components of both of these valuable resources. A final chapter develops a series of principles or best practices for studying, managing, and protecting natural quiet and natural darkness in the national parks and related reserves.
