How can human communities sustain a long-term existence on a small planet? This challenge grows ever more urgent as the threat of global warming increases. Planning for Sustainability presents a wide-ranging, intellectually well-grounded and accessible introduction to the concept of planning for more sustainable and livable communities. The text explores topics such as how more compact and walkable cities and towns might be created, how local ecosystems can be restored, how social inequalities might be reduced, how greenhouse gas emissions might be lowered, and how more sustainable forms of economic development can be brought about. The second edition has been extensively revised and updated throughout, including an improved structure with chapters now organized under three sections: the nature of sustainable planning, issues central to sustainable planning, and scales of sustainable planning. New material includes greater discussion of climate change, urban food systems, the relationships between public health and the urban environment, and international development. Building on past schools of planning theory, Planning for Sustainability lays out a sustainability planning framework that pays special attention to the rapidly evolving institutions and power structures of a globalizing world. By considering in turn each scale of planning—international, national, regional, municipal, neighborhood, and site and building—the book illustrates how sustainability initiatives at different levels can interrelate. Only by weaving together planning initiatives and institutions at different scales, and by integrating efforts across disciplines, can we move towards long-term human and ecological well-being.

The late-antique Roman poet Claudian has enjoyed an upsurge of interest in his work for some thirty years. In spite of increasing appreciation for his artistry, Claudian's position within the history of Latin literature has not been clearly defined. This volume presents the results of the first symposium ever devoted to Claudian and Latin literature. Well-known scholars such as Franca Ela Consolino, Manfred Fuhrmann, Siegmar Döpp, Isabella Gualandri, Jacqueline Long, and Peter Lebrecht Schmidt join several younger scholars to cast new light on the literary and cultural context of Claudian's works, on his themes and preoccupations, his aesthetics, and on the later reception of his work. The different contributions together give a sense not only of unity within the varied corpus of Claudian's poetry, which comprises political and mythological epic, epigrams, and elegies, but also of how much Claudian is representative of the major trends of his times. Finally, the book shows how far modern criticism has advanced towards an integrated understanding of Claudian's work.

Die in jüngerer Zeit zu konstatierende Wiederentdeckung der Stadt hat die Sehnsucht der Menschen nach der Natur keineswegs verdrängt. Im Gegenteil: Es gilt, innerstädtische Lösungen zu finden, die diesen neu gewachsenen Bedürfnissen gerecht werden, und zwar Lösungen, die gleichzeitig den Anforderungen von Gestaltung, Ökologie, Soziologie und Ökonomie entsprechen. Die Publikation widmet sich dem Thema der innerstädtischen Freiraumgestaltung. Sie dokumentiert 20 aktuell realisierte Beispiele innerhalb Europas, zum überwiegenden Teil mit Grünpflanzungen, entworfen von international renommierten Landschaftsarchitekten, wie etwa Gustafson Porter, Field Operations, Michel Desvigne, Gross.Max, Latz + Partner und West 8. Die Projekte, realisiert zwischen 2004 und 2010, reichen vom innerstädtischen Privatgarten über Plätze, Straßen und Promenaden bis hin zu Großprojekten wie der Revitalisierung von Flussuferbereichen oder Grün-Masterplanungen für ganze Städte. Das städtische Grün leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zum ökologischen Stadtumbau. Die dokumentierten Projekte zeigen in beispielhafter Form, wie dies mit modernsten Materialien und Technologien gelingen kann.

Wandern auf dem Jakobsweg, New Age, Feng-Shui und Engelskult: Die individuelle Suche nach Spiritualität, so zeigt Hubert Knoblauch in diesem Buch, stellt die neue Sozialform des Religiösen dar. Ihren Kern bilden besondere Erfahrungen der Transzendenz, die nicht mehr nur in freikirchlichen Gemeinden oder esoterischen Zirkeln gepflegt werden, sondern tief in die Alltagskultur hineinreichen. Gleichzeitig nehmen heute auch die Kirchen gezielt Formen der populären Kultur auf, wie etwa die Auftritte des Papstes in den Medien zeigen. Hubert Knoblauch beleuchtet das ganze Spektrum kirchlicher, populärer und esoterischer Spiritualität in der Gegenwart. Angesichts dessen konstatiert er einen grundlegenden Wandel der Religion, der zur Auflösung der alten Grenzen von sakral zu profan geführt hat. Der gesellschaftliche Fluchtpunkt dieses Wandels ist das aufgewertete Subjekt und seine individuelle Sinnsuche.
