"This Handbook covers social and political trust. Essays cover the foundations of both types of trust, whether they have common or different roots. The Handbook includes essays on rational choice approaches to trust, including trust games and experiments-as well as an essay on how we measure trust. There are essays on the cultural and social psychological roots of trust, including how we are more likely to trust people like ourselves than strangers, as well as the place of trust in democracy- how national identity shapes trust, how trust forms in developing countries and in new democracies. Do minority groups are less trusting than the dominant group in a society? Do immigrants adapt to the trust levels of their host countries and do patterns of residence shape faith in others? Does interaction with people in groups build trust? Does the welfare state promote trust and in turn does trust lead to greater well-being and to better health outcomes? There are also essays on the foundations of political trust, political trust and the economy and elections. There are essays linking trust to the law, corruption, tax compliance, and economic growth. Authors also discuss how trust shapes cooperation in the international system and how it shapes attitudes toward international institutions and foreign countries"--

The Routledge Handbook on Historic Urban Landscapes in the Asia-Pacific

The Routledge Handbook on Historic Urban Landscapes in the Asia-Pacific sheds light onto the balancing act of urban heritage management, focusing specifically on the Asia-Pacific regions in which this challenge is imminent and in need of effective solutions. Urban heritage, while being threatened amid myriad forces of global and ecological change, provides a vital social, cultural, and economic asset for regeneration and sustenance of liveability of inhabited urban areas worldwide. This six-part volume takes a critical look at the concept of Historic Urban Landscapes, the approach that UNESCO promotes to achieve holistic management of urban heritage, through the lens of issues, prospects, and experiences of urban regeneration of the selected geo-cultural context. It further discusses the difficult task that heritage managers encounter in conceptualizing, mapping, curating, and sustaining the plurality, poetics, and politics of urban heritage of the regions in question. The connective thesis that weaves the chapters in this volume together reinforces for readers that the management of urban heritage considers cities as dynamic entities, palimpsests of historical memories, collages of social diversity, territories of contested identities, and sites for sustainable liveability. Throughout this edited collection, chapters argue for recognizing the totality of the eco-cultural urban fabric, embracing change, building social cohesion, and initiating strategic socio-economic progress in the conservation of Historic Urban Landscapes. Containing thirty-seven contributions written by leading regional experts, and illustrated with over 200 black and white images and tables, this volume provides a much-needed resource on Historic Urban Landscapes for students, scholars, and researchers.

La larga historia de amor entre Frank Lloyd Wright, una figura imposible y fascinante, y Mamah una mujer casada a quien Wright seduce, más allá de las limitaciones de lo convencional. En 1903, Edwin y Mamah Cheney encargan la construcción de su casa a Frank Lloyd Wright, un renombrado arquitecto que luego se convertiría en uno de los mayores talentos de la arquitectura contemporánea, autor de la célebre Casa de la Cascada y del Museo Guggenheim de Nueva York. Desde el principio, Mamah se siente atraída por su carisma, y también Frank parece disfrutar de su compañía. Al cabo de unos años, vuelven a encontrarse y se embarcan en un viaje que conmocionará a la sociedad de Chicago y cambiará para siempre sus vidas. A partir de una minuciosa investigación, Nancy Horan retrata los Estados Unidos de la época y la Europa de las vanguardias, la controvertida personalidad de Frank Lloyd Wright y la lucha de Mamah Cheney, una mujerobligada a elegir entre los roles de madre, esposa, amante e intelectual, que supo abrazar el feminismo y también ponerlo en tela de juicio. Amar a Frank ha sido best-seller en Estados Unidos y ha recibido las críticas más elogiosas. La crítica ha dicho... «Un drama conmovedor... Amar a Frank humaniza a sus personajes principales con tanto éxito que aquello que hace que Frank y Mamah rompan sus respectivos vínculos familiares deja de parecer un misterio... Una virtuosa narración.» The New York Time «Horan ha representado a Mamah Borthwick Cheney como el enigmático arquetipo de todas las mujeres; un símbolo de las libertades que ellas quisieran tener y, a la vez, de las consecuencias que les esperan cuando tratan de asumirlas.» The New York Times Book Review «Esta elegante primera novela de Horan narra la larga historia de amor entre Frank Lloyd Wright, una figura imposible y fascinante, y Mamah Cheney, una mujer casada a quien Wright seduce, más allá de las limitaciones de lo convencional. Una lectura absorbente y provocativa.» Scott Turow «Admiro esta novela, la adoro por muchas razones. Por su inteligencia y por el lirismo de su prosa. Por la atención a los detalles de la época. Por las proporciones épicas de esta fascinante historia de amor. Mamah Cheney ha estado en mi mente, en mi corazón y en mi alma desde que leí este libro, y dudo que me abandone.» Elizabeth Berg «Amar a Frank es una de esas novelas que te saca de tu vida. Hipnótica y fascinante, está llena de complejos personajes, profundas pasiones, descripciones sutiles de asombrosa arquitectura y, por supuesto, de todo el colorido de la apremiante vida corriente de hace ya cien años.» Lauren Belfer

Josh Kaufman ha creado su propio negocio, que se basa en condensar los principios básicos del management y hacerlos fácilmente accesibles para todo tipo de profesionales, sea cual sea su nivel de responsabilidad o el sector en que trabajan.

Deliberative democracy has been one of the main games in contemporary political theory for two decades, growing enormously in size and importance in political science and many other disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of Deliberative Democracy takes stock of deliberative democracy as a research field, in philosophy, in various research programmes in the social sciences and law, and in political practice around the globe. It provides a concise history of deliberative ideals in political thought and discusses their philosophical origins. The Handbook locates deliberation in political systems with different spaces, publics, and venues, including parliaments, courts, governance networks, protests, mini-publics, old and new media, and everyday talk. It engages with practical applications, mapping deliberation as a reform movement and as a device for conflict resolution, documenting the practice and study of deliberative democracy around the world and in global governance.
