With a compelling and down-to-earth approach, this remarkable discussion illustrates the ways that any reader—from the idly curious to the serious spiritual seeker—can develop a greater understanding of who they are, where they come from, and where they are going.

»Von Zeit zu Zeit erscheinen vor den Fenstern eines Raumschiffs Wunder ...« Millionen haben das Video gesehen, in dem der Astronaut Chris Hadfield singend und Gitarre spielend durch die Raumstation ISS schwebt. Fasziniert schauen die Menschen seither nach oben: Wie verändert der Blick aus 400 km Höhe die Sicht auf unser Leben? Chris Hadfield nimmt uns mit in schwindelerregende Sphären: Er erzählt von riskanten Manövern und von der Kunst, stets auf das Schlimmste vorbereitet zu sein und zugleich an das Unmögliche zu glauben. Chris Hadfield ist neun Jahre alt, als er im Juli 1969 die Mondlandung live im Fernsehen verfolgt. Augenblicklich weiß er, was er werden will: Astronaut! Mittlerweile hat er an die 4000 Stunden im Weltraum verbracht und gehört zu den erfahrensten Raumfahrern der Welt – zuletzt als Kommandeur der internationalen Raumstation ISS. Jetzt nimmt er uns mit in den Weltraum: Wir erfahren, wie man überhaupt Astronaut wird (für alle, die den Traum noch nicht aufgegeben haben), was man dafür alles können muss (u.a. Schwimmen!, Toiletten reparieren), wie sich der erste Raketenstart anfühlt (als säße man in einem Container, der von einem riesigen LKW gerammt wird) und was man beim ersten Raumspaziergang beachten muss. Eine realistische, humorvolle, aber auch demütige Liebeserklärung an das Leben auf der Erde und die Wunder des Universums, die uns zeigt, wie viel Bodenhaftung man braucht, um abheben zu können.

Dance is the art least susceptible to preservation since its embodied, kinaesthetic nature has proven difficult to capture in notation and even in still or moving images. However, frameworks have been established and guidance made available for keeping dances, performances, and choreographers’ legacies alive so that the dancers of today and tomorrow can experience and learn from the dances and dancers of the past. In this volume, a range of voices address the issue of dance preservation through memory, artistic choice, interpretation, imagery and notation, as well as looking at relevant archives, legal structures, documentation and artefacts. The intertwining of dance preservation and creativity is a core theme discussed throughout this text, pointing to the essential continuity of dance history and dance innovation. The demands of preservation stretch across time, geographies, institutions and interpersonal connections, and this book focuses on the fascinating web that supports the fragile yet urgent effort to sustain our dancing heritage. The articles in this book were originally published in the journal Dance Chronicle: Studies in Dance and the Related Arts.

Time and space are two of the most basic dimensions of human life. They envelop all human beings from birth to death. As such, they provide the context for human existence. At the same time, however, time and space also serve as major influencing factors in mankind's actions. Hence, a vast literature has developed on time and space as separate dimensions, and recently on time-space as joint dimensions. Interestingly enough, the social connotations of time and space have mostly been studied with the individual human being in mind. The more societal significance of time and space, whether separately or jointly, have been relatively neglected. It is the purpose of this volume to help fill this lacuna through discussions on some of the many junctions of time, space, and society at large. The discussion will naturally involve concepts and findings from more than just one discipline -- notably, geography, sociology, social history and political science. It is, thus, obvious that the topic may be highlighted from several perspectives. Given my own education and work, the approach will lean more to the geographical perspective. Geography has a special merit as an integrating framework for the study of time, space, and society. It is a discipline that has space at the center of its raison d'etre and, as such, has always striven for integration, holism and comprehensiveness.

A Geographical Perspective on Change

Society in Time and Space is an important book which offers a geographical perspective on societal change, and sets out to show how understanding the geography of such change enables us to appreciate better the basic processes involved. Robert Dodgshon argues that, as a first step, we need to clarify the circumstances under which society becomes inertial and finds change difficult. Using a range of historical and contemporary examples, he shows that society's use of space is a powerful source of this inertia. Different sources of geographical inertia are explored, including society's symbolization and organizational structuring of space, together with its capitalization of landscape. Building on this mapping of inertia, Professor Dodgshon shows how society has long steered radical change around such spaces. Society in Time and Space will be of interest not only to geographers but also to historians and social theorists.

This ambitious study treats urbanization and urbanism all over the world, and from the earliest times to the present. Professor Southall, a pioneer in the study of African cities, discusses the urban centers of ancient, medieval and modern cities. Drawing on an historical and comparative perspective, he offers a fresh analysis of world urbanization in the contemporary period of globalization. Throughout the book, he emphasizes the enduring paradox of the city, which juxtaposes splendid cultural productions with the poverty and deprivation of the majority.

Why do we choose specific modes of transport and what are the perceived rationalities for our choice? How are different theoretical concepts within mobility research actually perceived and lived in everyday life? At this book's core is a conceptual and empirical contribution to critical mobility research. It focuses on the tension between freedom and unfreedom, articulated through the dichotomy between individuality and community, as well as critical perspectives on the multitude of unintended consequences of mobility. In a range of everyday life narratives, this tension is analyzed through the concept of 'structural stories'. In teasing out the ambivalences of late modern everyday life, Malene Freudendal-Pedersen exposes how mobility both generates and helps to overcome and live with these ambivalences.

This collection of fresh essays addresses a broad range of topics in the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who, both old (1963–1989) and new (2005–present). The book begins with the fan: There are essays on how the show is viewed and identified with, fan interactions with each other, reactions to changes, the wilderness years when it wasn’t in production. Essays then look at the ways in which the stories are told (e.g., their timeliness, their use of time travel as a device, etc.). After discussing the stories and devices and themes, the essays turn to looking at the Doctor’s female companions and how they evolve, are used, and changed by their journey with the Doctor.

Richard Rose’s memoir vividly describes first-hand experience of the transformation of politics in Europe and the United States since 1940. He has been teargassed in Chicago, seen walls go up in Belfast and come down in Berlin. The author’s education in the streets and in the corridors of political power give a unique perspective on discrimination by race, religion and class, and the world in which political scientists live today. Rose has distilled a 500-page book into a three-minute Oval Office explanation to George W Bush of why America’s intervention in Iraq was a disaster. He gives practical advice to political scientists about how to make words into concepts and communicate what you know to others inside and outside universities. The book’s photographs show memorials to the dead, and living evidence of how election forecasting has changed since Delphi. Using skills developed since teaching himself to type at the age of eight, Rose describes his 20 years of working in newspapers, radio and television before publishing his first book. Since then he has combined social science methodology, along with the methodologies of comparative drama and the applied arts, to write many innovative books. This is the latest.
