Papadakos, Sue
Those We Do Not See". It could be just the title of a book. It may strike our curiosity and make us open it and admire beautiful pictures. But it could also be a strong stimulus. Not only of the vision, delighted by staring at the beauty, but of the spirit and soul as well. What is there beyond the visible? What our sight can catch we decided to really look around us? How much beauty is there within our reach, and we just pass by? This book offers exactly this peculiarity: it urges us to see. Through Sue Papadakos' sensitive eye and through her undoubtedly "technical" lens, we are given the chance to make a new start, looking around through different points of view, through different perspectives... It may become the starting point of a really essential and more beautiful life for all of us. Text in English and Greek. N.B.Rear cover of d/j slightly marked.

Slight dent to front cover and fore edge of front board otherwise New. Nanotechnology seems to escape boundaries and definitions. The "Rush to Nanoscale" spreads throughout different sites and arenas, involving a multiplicity of actors, meanings and spaces in which they emerge. The 'uncertainty of nanotechnology' appears to be both a condition and a consequence of this situation. This volume adds to the collective effort of charting the multiple and heterogeneous dimensions that characterize nanotechnology, by analyzing the numerous modalities through which different stakeholders and actors provide definitions, attribute meaning and sense to nanoenabled innovations. The chapters of the book attempt to highlight how nanotechnologies, their discourse, and their actual and potential implications cannot be isolated in laboratories, factories, markets and separate discussion arenas. Also, the volume examines how it is apparently not possible to bind and/or confine the definition of nanotechnology by referring exclusively to present-day research and applications, as well as to geographical, cultural and even disciplinary boundaries. Considered together, this collection of essays suggests that the 'societal experiment' of nanotechnology has to be explored with a vocabulary that is not just scientific and technical, in order to cross the frontiers between multiple domains, actors, identities, translations and negotiation processes that occur in the nanotechnology field. 143pp.

Schultz, Anne-Catrin
At the time San Francisco International Airport opened as Mills Field Municipal Airport of San Francisco in 1927, most of the San Francisco Peninsula was pasture land. Over the years, new terminals and hangars were built to satisfy the demand of increased air traffic. Beginning with a small administration building of residential character including horizontal wood siding and red cedar shingles, the airport advanced to the larger San Francisco Airport Administration Building. After continuous growth, in 2000 the airport was reorganised and expanded into the vast, structurally iconic new International Terminal. The new building acts as a gateway between land and air, offering a recognisable image to arriving and leaving passengers. It is organised over five levels, making it America's first mid-rise terminal. It receives multiple modes of transportation - linking cars, buses, the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system and the internal light-rail system. According to Craig Hartman, design architect with SOM, the terminal is 'founded upon the qualities of light and lightness'. He says of the new roof: 'We conceived of it as a floating, sheltering plane and as a symbol'. The building's position above several lanes of traffic required a 380-foot long span between the central columns - essentially the building is a bridge. Thus the building itself is in a state of lift-off, offering the first step into the air for departure or a transition space for arrival before the traveller really gets back to the ground. The terminal is built on friction-pendulum base insulators that allow it to swing in the event of an earthquake. The roof trusses' shape evokes many possible associations, the rolling Bay Area hills, the wings of airplanes, a bird in flight - all images not unusual inspirations for airport designs, though in this case especially elegantly achieved.Slight fading to d/j spine.

Zargani, Aldo
In an extraordinary literary debut, Aldo Zargani reconstructs the lost world of his Jewish childhood during the perilous years 1938-45 when he and his family fled from Fascists and Nazis in northern Italy. His haunting memoir acquires a cinematic intensity as he crosscuts from the blood-red stone spires of Basel, where his father failed to find refuge for his family in 1939, to fiery scenes of the Allied bombing of Turin in 1942, to the freezing winter of 1943-44, which Zargani and his brother spent hidden in a Catholic boarding school deep in the countryside.326pp.

Editor Blanpain,R.
Globalization is unravelling and reassembling the fabric of labour relations in ways that are more affected by local conditions and business requirements than by international standards. Drawing together a group of concerned delegates, a special International Conference in Leuven, Belgium, on 2-3 May 1999, was sponsored by the Euro-Japan Institute for Law and Business. The participants included prominent members of the international legal, business and academic communities, as well as representatives of the International Labour Organisation, the Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation (including its Trade Union Advisory Committee), the European Union, and the International Employers' Association. This book is the record of this conference. It publishes the reports presented by the various delegates, and also includes the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (1998) and its follow-up. As an additional feature, it publishes codes of conduct for several multinational enterprises. The text investigates four channels that are available for monitoring social change and promoting social progress in today's world: labour conventions legally binding on signatory states, international guidelines and statements of social policy imposing voluntary standards on multinational enterprises, international declarations of rights recommending agendas for legislatures, and internal corporate codes of conduct. The reports evaluate the effectiveness of these channels, how they operate in practice, their impact on day-to-day reality, and the extent of coherence and consistency they manifest as instruments of social change. 386pp.
