1. Silk Road, The - Central Asia, Afghanistan and Iran: A Travel Companion Paperback – April 28, 2015

by Jonathan Tucker  (Author), Paul Theroux (Author)

Stretching from the ancient Chinese capital of Xian across the expanses of Central Asia to Rome, the Silk Road was, for 2,000 years, a vibrant network of arteries that carried the lifeblood of nations across the world. Along a multitude of routes everything was exchanged: exotic goods, art, knowledge, religion, philosophy, disease and war. From its earliest beginnings in the days of Alexander the Great and the Han Dynasty, the Silk Road expanded and evolved, reaching its peak under the Tang and Byzantine empires and gradually crumbling with the decline of the Mongol empire. In this beautifully illustrated book, which covers the Central Asian section of the Silk Road–from Lake Issy Kul through Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, the Kyzyl Kum Desert, Khiva and Merv to Herat, Kabul and Iran–Tucker uses traveler’s anecdotes and a wealth of literary and historical sources to celebrate the cultural heritage of the countries that lie along the Silk Road and illuminate the lives of those who once traveled through the very heart of the world.

2. Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production (Handbooks of Research on International Political Economy series)

by Kees Van Der Pijl (Author, Editor)

The Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the changing world of global production. The book explores the topic in a range of directions, including the human material 'used' in production across the globe and alternatives proposed from different quarters.

Chapters cover the geography of why and where jobs are moving in both manufacturing and services. The doubling of the world's available labor supply after the opening up of the planned economies in Europe and Asia has sharply tilted the balance of power towards giant corporations. Labor and the politics of work is analyzed in a number of key countries. Possible signs of a recovery of organized labor's negotiating power on this vastly expanded playing field are discussed in separate chapters, and a complete overview is provided of labour research networks currently active. This important volume addresses topics relating to the human and natural basis on which production rests, from the consequences of the exploitation of the body and mind to sex work, biotechnology, and the prospects for ecological re-balancing.

Written by a team of authors from fourteen different countries and comprising some of the biggest names in contemporary social science as well as topical specialists, this Handbook will prove a critical resource to political economists at all levels, trade unionists and NGO activists in the labor and human rights sphere, politicians and journalists.

4. Cellulosic Energy Cropping Systems (Wiley Series in Renewable Resource) 1st Edition

by Douglas L. Karlen (Editor)

"Cellulosic Energy Cropping Systems" presents a comprehensive overview of how cellulosic energy crops can be sustainably produced and converted to affordable energy through liquid fuels, heat and electricity.

The book begins with an introduction to cellulosic feedstocks, discussing their potential as a large-scale sustainable energy source, and technologies for the production of liquid fuels, heat and electricity. Subsequent chapters examine miscanthus, switchgrass, sugarcane and energy cane, sorghums and crop residues, reviewing their phylogeny, cultural practices, and opportunities for genetic improvement. This is followed by a detailed focus on woody crops, including eucalyptus, pine, poplar and willow. Critical logistical issues associated with both herbaceous and woody feedstocks are reviewed, and alternate strategies for harvesting, transporting, and storing cellulosic materials are also examined. The final sectionof the booktackles the challenge of achieving long-term sustainability, addressing economic, environmental and social factors.

"Cellulosic Energy Cropping Systems" is a valuable resource for academics, students and industry professionals working in the field of biomass cultivation and conversion, bioenergy, crop science and agriculture.

Topics covered include: Identifying suitable cellulosic energy crops that are adapted to a wide range of climates and soils Best management practices for sustainably growing, harvesting, storing, transporting and pre-processing these crops The development of integrated cellulosic energy cropping systems for supplying commercial processing plants Challenges and opportunities for the long-term sustainability of cellulosic energy crops

"This book was conceived and initiated by David I. Bransby, Professor of Energy and Forage Crops in the Department of Crop, Soil and Environmental Sciences at Auburn University, USA."

Human Geography explores how human behaviour affects the earth's surface, initiating a process of discovery that engages with subjects such as globalization, politics, biology, economics, philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, and global warming.

It also traces the evolution of the field, emphasizing how human geography continues to develop in response to changing human needs. The eighth edition is fully up to date, including current material on topics such as renewable energy, global population distribution, and the "Arab Spring," as well as enhanced, streamlined coverage of globalization. Important new pedagogical features include "Focus on Geographers" boxes in which active human geographers from across Canada discuss their current research on topics such as "Urbanization, Gender, and Everyday Life in Botswana" and "The Paradox of Polar Bear Ecotourism in Churchill, Manitoba"; and new "In the News" boxes highlight current events and news stories related to human geography.
