Gullberg, Anders and Isaksson, Karolina
Traffic congestion in big cities is a growing problem, and in the Swedish capital of Stockholm a seven-month long trial period with congestion taxes was carried out in 2006. It has since been made a permanent system. In this book, the authors scrutinise and analyse the political and administrative processes of the first Swedish congestion experiment and its aftermath. The articles point to the fact that traffic policies are implemented for varying purposes, and differing interests can be premiered when designing congestion systems. The authors' analyses are mirrored against collective, international experiences and research. The authors describe the preoccupations, hopes and impressions that came along with the trial period, and how feelings fluctuated among the inhabitants of Stockholm before, during, and after the trial. The book shows how research can and should follow the general trends in societal developments closely. Flexibility is especially important in order to explain problems, and preventing gossip and preconceived ideas from gaining a foothold. The authors hope to provide tools for avoiding the pitfalls, and that the successes of the Stockholm Trial will be repeated in other contexts. 314pp.

Bryan, Liz
Experience history and the outdoors in "Country Roads of Alberta", an intriguing new photographic guidebook that takes you to places you've never been before. Alberta's scenery is as diverse as its topography. Fringed along its western edge by high mountains, the land descends through foothills to stretch into undulating plains sculpted by ancient ice into ridges, hills and deep coulees. Under the changing light of the prairie sky, the rolling landscape reveals tipi rings and medicine wheels - remnants of the first people to call this land home - as well as marks of later civilisation: homesteads, old barns, churches and the graveyards of the first immigrants.Antelope, wild goats, moose, beaver, prairie dogs and birds are among the bountiful wildlife that flourish here. In "Country Roads of Alberta", Liz Bryan guides readers along the back roads of this beautiful landscape. In addition to driving directions and maps, Bryan includes snippets of archaeology, history, geology and other interesting information. The heart of her book, though, is in her magnificent, full-colour photos that celebrate Alberta's many landscapes - some still wild, and all most beautiful. 160pp.
