Jannuzzi, Michele; Smith, Richard
Technological advances have changed not only the constraints and possibilities of individual media, but the interplay between media, and our expectations. Never before have we had the potential to channel and cross-reference such a wealth and diversity of information; and never before have we been posed such difficult questions about how information is structured, delivered, and accessed; about who sees what, where, and for how long. Designers not only have to be successful in designing for this medium and that medium but in making them work in tandem with each other, without tautology or contradiction. A cross-media approach involves media selection, optimisation, and articulation to define effective and efficient strategies for the delivery of information, where each medium is played according to its strengths. In this environment everyone is a prospector: everything is up for grabs. This book illustrates these themes through the working methodology of Jannuzzi Smith, one of Europe's most innovative and influential design studios.

Edited By Klingemann,Harald and Gmel,Gerhard
Research on alcohol-related consequences has traditionally focused mainly on health aspects of alcohol consumption or effects which can be more easily quantified or measured. It is evident that alcohol has many consequences which can be characterized as "social" in nature and which are not, or not only, medical and are directly health-related. Such consequences include violence, crime and psychosocial factors. The increasing relevance of consequences of alcohol consumption other than medical is also reflected in the second European Action Plan 2000-2004 of WHO, aiming at the prevention and reduction of harm done by alcohol to the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. This book attempts to provide a comprehensive overview of social consequences of alcohol consumption on the individual, group, organisational and societal level. It is a result of a two-year collaborative study under the leadership of WHO--Euro with the participation of alcohol researchers from Finland, Germany, Norway, Scotland and Switzerland. Although the book was written by experts in the field, it is targeted not only at scientists, but at all people dealing with alcohol-related problems in practice. 170pp.

Tillyard, Stella
The sequel to "Aristocrats", this tells the story of the headstrong and passionate 18th century Irish revolutionary, Lord Edward Fitzgerald. Son of a duke, heir to estates and influence, Lord Edward died in a Dublin gaol, a rebel and a traitor. Born in 1763, he joined the British army as a teenager, fought in the American War of Independence and was elected to the Irish parliament in 1783. However, his radical sentiments soon showed themselves, through beliefs in the goodness of man and the importance of liberty and equality. Returning to North America with the army in 1787, Lord Edward spent time with the Iroquois and was adopted by them as an Indian chief. Back in Europe he became a disciple of the Republican Thomas Paine, visited revolutionary France and joined the Irish underground in the 1790s.
