There are so many types of hobbies: collecting different articles, fishing, games and sport activities, and so on. For me, my hobby was unusual: taking and collecting ship pictures. Since I was little, sometimes people around me did not value this hobby. I grew up with the intention that this hobby would not benefit only me but also others. This is why I established this book to show people all around the world will look at my pictures and learn something about ships. I went to so many different parts of the world to take pictures of the ships. These ships were not only vehicles on the sea for me but also because they meant more than that. Maybe when someone looks at the ship, he/she might only see a vehicle, but I see more than that. I also established this book for those who have different hobbies to share them with others. Modern Cruise Ships from 1931 to 2008 is a collection of ship pictures which I have been taking since 1995. This book also provides some technical data for each ship. There are more than 130 ship pictures in this book. I also have provided my three cruise experiences in this book. This book definitely will be a great source for ship lovers and who are interested in going on a cruise.

Ferries are the orphans of the vehicles. People view their car as their identity; people appreciate planes, and people takes vacation with cruise ships. If you look at around the world, you will find cars, planes, and passenger ships preserved; however, you will hardly find a ferry preserved. One should that Istanbul would not be exotic Istanbul without her pretty ferries; San Diego would not be colorful San Diego without her ferries, and Messina would not be macho Messina without her ferries. Even though many people are not aware of these great vehicles' ability to beautify cities, ferries still carry their mission, carry cars and people from one place to another. After publishing my book, Modern Cruise Ships from 1931 to 2008, I decided to publish this book as well because many people know little about ferries. Therefore, I would like to present the ferry pictures that I have taken during the past 13 years. Ferries of the World is a collection of ferry pictures which I have been taking since 1995. This book also provides some technical data for each ferry. There are 126 ferry pictures in this book. I shared my experience with each ferry in this book.

This book is meant to be a statement to the world; a statement of encouragement and inspiration. The Love of the Rose is set to inspire and develop confidence in ones own beliefs and thoughts. To believe and think is not taboo and should be developed for all to listen, of course with respect to every one elses opinions and beliefs, and to discuss. The Love of the Rose was written in inspiration of positive virtues that has been seen in the world through the ages. I wrote this book in the best intention to encourage people to speak up and voice their opinions all with respect and politeness. There is no right or wrong way of developing an opinion as long as it gives the world a better understanding of the various occupants of this place we call home. This book is made with the intention to show people that positive virtues and positive ways of expressing one self is what the world needs to unite, no matter what creed, political views or level of education. Brotherhood and tolerance amongst people is needed to connect peacefully and allow to freely expressing ourselves in a manner that is not judgmental or oppressive to others, this is needed in a world full of miscommunications and aggressiveness. The Love of the Rose is my feelings and my thoughts; they are not to bewilder anyone. They are there to open free speech, peace and another way of thinking. The more people who are open to their opinions: the more that one can understand. And with understanding from where our neighbors come from will bring tolerance. And with tolerance one can fight for the opinions of others and the feelings that are involved. This is a step for peace in a micro-societal way. Inner peace and tolerance comes with understanding of each others thoughts and backgrounds and with all this peace will come in a macro sense.

Peter C. Smith presents us here with the second release in his visually splendid Cruise Ships series. Whilst his first book concerned itself with the large-scale ships currently cruising through our seas (those weighing 40,000 GT and more) this volume focusses on the other end of the market; the ships that weigh in at less than 40,000 GT, but which are often much more stylish and aesthetically pleasing than their larger-scale counterparts. The elegant interiors and luxurious features on display in today's vast fleet of cruise liners remain unrecorded in all but holiday brochures. This book carries on in the tradition of Peter's last release, giving a complete overview of the best of these ships, the cream of the crop, so to speak.??Each colour profile includes external and interior views of the featured ship. Details of the design, building and service history of each vessel are provided with vital statistics of the ship and its facilities.??This is a book of reference for maritime enthusiasts, would-be holiday cruisers and those who have been passengers. It serves as an impressive visual tribute to the best of the smaller scale fleet currently cruising globally.??As seen in the Bedford Times & Citizen.

Covering an exhaustive range of information about the five boroughs, the first edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City was a success by every measure, earning worldwide acclaim and several awards for reference excellence, and selling out its first printing before it was officially published. But much has changed since the volume first appeared in 1995: the World Trade Center no longer dominates the skyline, a billionaire businessman has become an unlikely three-term mayor, and urban regeneration—Chelsea Piers, the High Line, DUMBO, Williamsburg, the South Bronx, the Lower East Side—has become commonplace. To reflect such innovation and change, this definitive, one-volume resource on the city has been completely revised and expanded. The revised edition includes 800 new entries that help complete the story of New York: from Air Train to E-ZPass, from September 11 to public order. The new material includes broader coverage of subject areas previously underserved as well as new maps and illustrations. Virtually all existing entries—spanning architecture, politics, business, sports, the arts, and more—have been updated to reflect the impact of the past two decades. The more than 5,000 alphabetical entries and 700 illustrations of the second edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City convey the richness and diversity of its subject in great breadth and detail, and will continue to serve as an indispensable tool for everyone who has even a passing interest in the American metropolis.

Tracing the design of “techno-cities” that blend the technological and the pastoral. Industrialization created cities of Dickensian squalor that were crowded, smoky, dirty, and disease-ridden. By the beginning of the twentieth century, urban visionaries were looking for ways to improve both living and working conditions in industrial cities. In Invented Edens, Robert Kargon and Arthur Molella trace the arc of one form of urban design, which they term the techno-city: a planned city developed in conjunction with large industrial or technological enterprises, blending the technological and the pastoral, the mill town and the garden city. Techno-cities of the twentieth century range from factory towns in Mussolini's Italy to the Disney creation of Celebration, Florida. Kargon and Molella show that the techno-city represents an experiment in integrating modern technology into the world of ideal life. Techno-cities mirror society's understanding of current technologies, and at the same time seek to regain the lost virtues of the edenic pre-industrial village. The idea of the techno-city transcended ideologies, crossed national borders, and spanned the entire twentieth century. Kargon and Molella map the concept through a series of exemplars. These include Norris, Tennessee, home to the Tennessee Valley Authority; Torviscosa, Italy, built by Italy's Fascist government to accommodate synthetic textile manufacturing (and featured in an early short by Michelangelo Antonioni); Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela, planned by a team from MIT and Harvard; and, finally, Disney's Celebration—perhaps the ultimate techno-city, a fantasy city reflecting an era in which virtual experiences are rapidly replacing actual ones.

Once a showcase for amateur athletics, the Olympic Games have become a global entertainment colossus powered by corporate sponsorship and professional participation. Stephen R. Wenn and Robert K. Barney offer the inside story of this transformation by examining the far-sighted leadership and decision-making acumen of four International Olympic Committee (IOC) presidents: Avery Brundage, Lord Killanin, Juan Antonio Samaranch, and Jacques Rogge. Blending biography with historical storytelling, the authors explore the evolution of Olympic commercialism from Brundage's uneasy acceptance of television rights fees through the revenue generation strategies that followed the Salt Lake City bid scandal to the present day. Throughout, Wenn and Barney draw on their decades of studying Olympic history to dissect the personalities, conflicts, and controversies behind the Games' embrace of the business of spectacle. Entertaining and expert, The Gold in the Rings maps the Olympics' course from paragon of purity to billion-dollar profits.

The Laird Rams

Built in Birkenhead, England, in 1862 to 1865, the "Laird rams" were two innovative armored warships intended for service with the Confederate Navy during the Civil War. The vessels represented a substantial threat to Union naval power, and offered the Confederacy a potential means to break the Union blockade of the Southern coastline. During 1863, the critical year of the Confederacy's last hope of recognition by the British and French, President Lincoln threatened war with Britain if the ships ever sailed under Confederate colors. Built in some secrecy, then launched on the River Mersey under intense international scrutiny, the ships were first seized, and then purchased by Britain to avoid a war with the United States. These armored warships were largely forgotten after the Admiralty acquired them. Historians rarely mention these sister warships--if referred at all, they are given short shrift. This book provides the first complete history of these once famous ironclads that never fired a shot in anger yet served at distant stations as defenders of the British Empire.

Capitalising on Change in a Globalising World

These are powerful times. Fundamental change is around the corner, but the concrete manifestations are unpredictable. Past trends will, less than ever, be a reliable orientation for desirable action. Adopting familiar game plans, reinforcing standard procedures and implementing strategies which were successful in the good old days of the second half of the 20th century are no longer a guarantee for an adequate solution. And even if they seem to alleviate a problem in the short term, they may lay the roots for failure in the longer term.What is needed in such a situation is the enhancement of resilience to facilitate the absorption of the unexpected and the unforeseeable; strengthening of the capacity to adjust innovatively and flexibly to rapidly changing political, economic, social and technological circumstances; and, in the political arena, to stretch what interest groups and the public believe is socially acceptable and thus politically feasible. This is the lesson to be learned from the 2,000 year long history of globalisation and the story of one city, Hamburg, which for 1,000 years has successfully remained on the side of the winners.
