How to create the world's new urban future

With the majority of the world's population shifting to urban centres, urban planning—the practice of land-use and transportation planning to help shape cities structurally, economically, and socially—has become an increasingly vital profession. In Urban Planning For Dummies, readers will get a practical overview of this fascinating field, including studying community demographics, determining the best uses for land, planning economic and transportation development, and implementing plans. Following an introductory course on urban planning, this book is key reading for any urban planning student or anyone involved in urban development.

With new studies conclusively demonstrating the dramatic impact of urban design on public psychological and physical health, the impact of the urban planner on a community is immense. And with a wide range of positions for urban planners in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors—including law firms, utility companies, and real estate development firms—having a fundamental understanding of urban planning is key to anyone even considering entry into this field. This book provides a useful introduction and lays the groundwork for serious study.

Helps readers understand the essentials of this complex profession Written by a certified practicing urban planner, with extensive practical and community-outreach experience

For anyone interested in being in the vanguard of building, designing, and shaping tomorrow's sustainable city, Urban Planning For Dummies offers an informative, entirely accessible introduction on learning how.

Open graves, open minds relates the Undead in literature and other media to questions concerning genre, technology, consumption and social change. It features original research by leading scholars (Dr Sam George is a frequent commentator on the contemporary vampire; Dr Catherine Spooner, a pioneer of the study of Contemporary Gothic; and Dr Stacey Abbott is the author of the seminal work on the vampire in film and TV). The essays cover texts both familiar and unexpected, bringing debates around fictional vampires into the twenty-first century where they are currently enjoying a vogue. This wide-ranging collection forms a coherent narrative which follows Enlightenment studies of the vampire's origins in folklore and folk panics, tracing sources of vampire fiction, through Romantic incarnations in Byron and Polidori to Le Fanu's Carmilla. Further essays discuss the undead in the context of Dracula, fin-de-siècle decadence and Nazi Germany together with early cinematic treatments. The rise of the sympathetic vampire is charted from Coppola's Dracula, to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight. More recent manifestations in novels, TV, Goth subculture, young adult fiction and cinema are dealt with in discussions of True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and much more. The book is essential reading for those who wish to explore open graves with an open mind: scholars of literature and film, enthusiasts of all things vampiric and writers of Undead fiction. The Transylvanian notebooks of the award-winning novelist Marcus Sedgwick conclude the study, shedding light on recent trends in young adult fiction. Sedgwick lays bare the writing process for budding novelists and creative writers in the genre.

Julian St. Laurent is being targeted for murder and doesn't know why. For the antiquities professor, life's highway has been a cone-cluttered construction project. Julian is blindsided by yet another “cone” when he is drawn into the homicide investigation of his best friend, the Reverend Cooper Saltonstall. In the process he is forced to reevaluate all the previously conceived truths of his life. Julian finds Cooper's personal Bible. Marked in the margins, in red ink, is a single word: Amphilochus. The rubric leads him on the quest for an ancient papyrus originally discovered in an Alexander the Great treasure trove by U.S. Special Forces while foraging through caves in the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afghanistan. Following an obscure set of clues left by Cooper, Julian and Livy, his former lover, are on their own to find the ancient document. They elude their pursuers only to become buried in the catacombs of Boston's Trinity Church. It is September 11, 2001. In the shadow cast by the day, Julian contemplates the loathsome and absurd cruelties perpetrated by humans upon other humans—in his circumstance and in the World Trade Center—simply in the name of two-thousand-year-old scripture. As the magnitude of the World Trade Center attack filters through the airwaves, Julian asks himself, What if the scriptures are wrong? Uncertainty tears at him. Should he keep the text hidden? Or should he expose it to the world in order to bring scrutiny upon all scripture with possible calamitous repercussions that could wreak havoc on Western Civilization?
