The role of aerial photography in the evolution of the concept of social space"and its impact on French urban planning in the mid-twentieth century. In mid-twentieth century France, the term "social space" ( l'espace social)--the idea that spatial form and social life are inextricably linked--emerged in a variety of social science disciplines. Taken up by the French New Left, it also came to inform the practice of urban planning. In The View from Above, Jeanne Haffner traces the evolution of the science of social space from the interwar period to the 1970s, illuminating in particular the role of aerial photography in this new way of conceptualizing socio-spatial relations. As early as the 1930s, the view from above served for Marcel Griaule and other anthropologists as a means of connecting the social and the spatial. Just a few decades later, the Marxist urban sociologist Henri Lefebvre called the perspective enabled by aerial photography--a technique closely associated with the French colonial state and military--"the space of state control." Lefebvre and others nevertheless used the notion of social space to recast the problem of massive modernist housing projects (grands ensembles) to encompass the modern suburb (banlieue) itself--a critique that has contemporary resonance in light of the banlieue riots of 2005 and 2007. Haffner shows how such "views" permitted new ways of conceptualizing the old problem of housing to emerge. She also points to broader issues, including the influence of the colonies on the metropole, the application of sociological expertise to the study of the built environment, and the development of a spatially oriented critique of capitalism.

By presenting select episodes and discourses from the life of Christ, the Gospel of John offers a heavenly philosophy that is superior to any earthly philosophy. This book is a collection of articles on the first four chapters of the Gospel. Drawing attention to the foundational principles of this heavenly philosophy, it enables readers to appreciate the wisdom and power that the Lord Jesus has brought to us "from above," so that we may no longer think and live as people "from below." Rather, because we have been born "from above" through Jesus Christ, although we remain in this world, we are no longer of the world. As Christians, we think, speak, and function on a higher plane, an altogether superior level of competence and intelligence.

This majestic National Geographic photography book offers a spectacular view of Earth from outer space, featuring aerial imagery taken from the International Space Station by NASA astronaut Terry Virts. Few people get the experience of seeing the world from outer space-and no one has taken as many pictures of Earth from above as Terry Virts. Celebrated NASA astronaut, pilot of the space shuttle, crew member on Soyuz, and commander of the International Space Station, Virts has spent more than 200 days in space-and very few of those days went by without his reaching for his camera. Now as never before, Virts shares the astronaut's view of the world, offering astounding aerial views of our planet and the vastness that surrounds it. The colors, shapes, details-and the stories they tell-are endlessly fascinating. Virts's book marries his stunning photographs with glimpses of everyday life in orbit. And amid this amazing show of Earth spectacles, he reflects on how the astronaut's point of view has shaped his life and spirit. Filled with magnificent photographs that will astonish and inspire, this book-and its intrepid author-becomes our guide to a new way of looking at the world.

Der Big Bang war der heißeste Augenblick der Weltgeschichte. Der Rest ist Abkühlung. Und die hatte Folgen: Atome und Sterne entstanden, die Erde und wir. Eingebettet in die Geschichte des Universums ist auch die Geschichte der Menschheit. David Christian erzählt die Historie der Welt anhand von acht Schwellenmomenten: von der Entstehung des Lebens bis zur Fotosynthese, von der Sprache bis zum menschgemachten Klimawandel. Sein Buch ist eine brillante Synthese der Erkenntnisse aus Astronomie, Biologie, Chemie und Physik. Und eine atemberaubende moderne Ursprungsgeschichte, die mit einem Ausblick auf die Zukunft endet, in der wir endlich die Verantwortung für den Planeten Erde übernehmen müssen.

Imagine what your Christian development would be like if • you grasped the true character of God. • you were captivated by appreciation of and love for God’s Word. • you were not frightened away by the “haunted house” of Revelation. • you appreciated how the early church’s experience influenced the message of Revelation. • you understood how various viewpoints on Revelation developed over time. • you enjoyed a perspective which prevents tunnel vision. • you understood viewpoints about which you were previously unaware. • you esteemed fellow believers who have different understandings of Revelation. • you appreciated how the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice is pictured in Revelation. • you practiced the message of Revelation in everyday life. • you were strengthened by an unshakable faith in God. • your faith was heartfelt and growing rather than formal or ritualistic. • you were strong enough to stand firm in the face of any and all spiritual opposition. • you were known for your moral and spiritual purity. • you were able to resist the seductions of our culture. • you demonstrated the sacrificial style of Jesus rather than the self-serving style of society. • you enjoyed the blessings of those who “keep the words” of Revelation’s message. • your anticipation of Jesus’ return rose above a distracting concern with earthquakes, wars, and developing social events. • you appreciated your present and future spiritual realities. • you were eager rather than fearful about the future. • you enjoyed the depths of the relationship toward which God is moving us.
