Edited By Muso,Ignazio
It is universally recognised that Venice and its lagoon are of such value that they constitute an international public good that must be preserved for humanity as a whole. But such an ambitious task requires a diversified, sustainable set of economic activities, mostly focused on the production of services and non-material goods. This complex issue is analyzed using different approaches, with a discussion of the case of Venice as an example of some of the most relevant problems concerning the relation between the environment and development in the contemporary world: the trade-off between preserving an ecosystem and considering it as an economic resource; the evolution of different urban growth scenarios and the preservation of a physical habitat; the role of immaterial production in urban economic development; the nature of tourism as a sustainable activity, considered from both from the environmental and cultural angles; the institutional aspect of governing a process of sustainable urban development. 269pp.

Edited By Gustafson, Paula
Canada's ceramists, tapestry weavers and other craft artists are recognised amongst the world's finest artisans. The inaugural edition of a three-volume series, Craft Perception and Practice celebrates the excellence of Canadian crafts by bringing together 24 essays and critical commentaries by 16 independent critics and curators, professional artists, art historians and studio instructors. Highly readable texts by internationally published authors Glenn Allison, Amy Gogarty, Paula Gustafson, Paul Mathieu, Gil McElroy and Anne McPherson -- as well as by noted Canadian painter Mary Pratt -- discuss the conceptual, social, and cultural significance of craft media. The essays engage linguistic and feminist theories, and consider aspects of tactile, sensual and tacit knowledge in the context of works by a distinguished group of Canadian craft artists that includes Prix Saidye Bronfman Award winners Steven Heinemann and Leopold L Foulem. 218pp.

Fraser, Jim
Mississippi is well known for its rich soil and plantation mansions, but the bluffs and prairies of its eastern boundary are often overlooked. Here, Jim Fraiser takes a deeper look at those historical gems of eastern Mississippi and its Coast. From Pascagoula to Tupelo, and Jackson too, the beauty of Mississippi's historic homes shines through Rick Guy's stunning photography. With each house pictured, readers learn interesting tidbits about the history of the home, the surrounding area, and the owners (or former owners). For those who love architecture, this book will be a wonderful addition to their collections. Several styles are covered, from the elegant Greek Revival of Waverly in West Point to the Colonial Revival style of Ballymere in Pass Christian. Spanning nearly one hundred years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, this book has everything. The fantastic images of authentic era refurbishing, interior settings, and antebellum designs portray the influence of the different cultures that collided in the South. From the first page to the last, excellent photography and enthusiastic writing combine to make this a smart selection.96pp.

Edited By Carraro,Carlo
The book first offers a theoretical framework for understanding the features of international agreements on climate, then shows different integrated assessment modelling approaches designed to analyse the impact of possible agreements of emissions abatement and the related costs. Potential implications of the Kyoto agreement, institutional and legal issues and the political economy behind international agreements on climate are not neglected, thus providing a comprehensive, albeit preliminary, exploration of crucial aspects of current negotiations on climate. 229pp.
