Penalosa, Enrique
Throughout the recorded history of Bogotį, from the earliest Spanish chronicles to present-day photographs, films and television programs, the Cerros Orientales or Eastern Ridges of the city have been an indelible feature of its landscape, culture and social life. But up to now the citizens of Bogotį have known little about their tutelary mountains and have rarely given them the value they deserve. For the Muisca indigenous society, the original inhabitants of the region, who regarded these ridges as a magical and holy place, the mountains were part of a living nature, superior to the human realm and the site for their most important shrines and ceremonial center.After the Spanish Conquest, the Eastern Ridges lost the sacred role they had had in the Pre-Columbian world. In response to the needs imposed by the development of a new city that was formed in the image of Western society, other cultural and religious symbols were placed on these mountains and the uncontrolled exploitation of their natural wealth began.As a result, their true value as an environmental reserve was ignored. For these reasons, there is an urgent need to examine the Cerros Orientales once more with the attitude of love and respect of their earliest inhabitants - the Native American dwellers of the Savannah of Bogotį, who were protected and inspired by them. 289pp.

Cunningham, Ian
Change means learning. The current requirements for business to change rapidly and dramaticlaly shows the need for new initiatives in strategic learning. This book offers Ian Cunningham's poneering approach - self-managed learning. This encourages the individual to devise their own learning programme which leads to greater enthusiasm and ownership of development. For the organization, it has strategic advantage in creating an committed team. This concept is backed by practical examples of application in organizations such as Shell, BBC and Allied Lyons. The author draws on the experience of hundreds of managers who have used his self managed learning approach. This text is the first volume in "The Developing Organizations" series. 256pp. N.B. Slight creasing to corners.

Flowers, Arthur;Curtis, Anthony;Neiman, Leroy
This coffee-table art book is one-of-a-kind. From hundreds of portrayals created over centuries by celebrated artists, such as Cezanne, Picasso, Munch, Leger, de la Tour, Remington, and Neiman, the best 120 were chosen to appear in this provocative visual documentation of the evolution of gambling. Much more than a compilation of subject-specific art, this book offers a scholarly look at the history of gaming. Each image is accompanied by a facing page of text, providing readers with a thumbnail sketch of the artist, then zeroing in on the image itself. The renderings, as seen through the artist's eye and preserved on canvas or in stone, serve as a form of 'photographic' chronicling that weaves a history of gambling through the ages - for the benefit of art lovers and gambling enthusiasts alike. 231pp. N.B. Tiny closed tear to bottom edge of front D/J.
