Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Lost Futures looks in detail at the wide range of buildings constructed in Britain between 1945 and 1979. Although their bold architectural aspirations reflected the forward-looking social ethos of the postwar era, many have since been either demolished or altered beyond recognition.Photographs taken at the time of their completion are accompanied by expertly researched captions that examine the buildings' design, creation, the ideals they embodied and the reasons for their eventual destruction. Lost Futures covers many building types, from housing to factories, commercial spaces and power stations, and presents the work of both iconic and lesser-known architects.
The author charts the complex reasons that led to the loss of these projects' ambitious futures, and assesses whether some might one day be recaptured.
Описание: Though polarization is often assumed to be detrimental to democracy, the author concludes that by presenting voters with clear choices, polarization can serve to increase the public`s interest and participation in politics and strengthen electoral accountability.

Описание: Argues that the most important divide in American politics is not between left and right but rather between citizens who are politically engaged and those who are not. This book also argues that it is the engaged members of the public, who closely reflect the ideals of democratic citizenship - but this is also the group that is most polarized.

"Disappearing Acts "is a beautifully illustrated search-and-find book. Each page features a densely detailed landscape: rainforest, savannah, coral reef, and more. Within these landscapes are hiding threatened species such as the Adelie penguin, elephant, panda, and snow leopard, and children are invited to search the picture to find each one. Alongside each illustration run descriptions of the animals, their numbers, their habitats, and why they are endangered. At the back of the book an index of animals provides further context. Isabella Bunnell s warm, intricate watercolors provide a delightful way to learn about our planet s rich diversity and fragile ecosystems."
