Marcus,Jon
This is both an exciting history and a tour guide, illustrating the fascinating development of the lighthouses of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island. Marcus and Kelly explain and show the technological evolution of lighthouses, the development of lights and lenses, the architecture of lighthouses, their construction and maintenance on remote sites, the life of the Lighthouse Service keepers, and the movement today to preserve and restore lights. Also included are excerpts from original logs and a descriptive tour of the last manned lighthouse in America, Boston Light, with its three resident Coast Guardsmen and their dog. The stunning photography includes intriguing images of lights in all kinds of weather -- plus photographs that bring readers inside the structures, showing the curling stairways, lenses, the keeper's homes, and more. A comprehensive appendix lists all the current New England lighthouses. 160pp.

The list of contributors to these volumes includes experts in the different disciplines of Jewish Studies, academics that apply the scholarly tools of the Social Sciences to the study of Jewish education, scholars interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of Jewish Studies and their implications for Jewish education, educational leaders and directors of visionary educational institutions. Colleagues, students and friends have all contributed enquiries into the issues that have stood at the centre of Mike's professional concerns.

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.
