  • Smart Development in Smart Communitiesby Gilberto Antonelli; Giuseppe Cappiello

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The concept of smart cities has become one of the most significant new lines of thinking to emerge in the social sciences in recent years, both from the research and policy angles.

  • Explaining Risk Analysisby Michael R Greenberg

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Risk analysis is not a narrowly defined set of applications. Rather, it is widely used to assess and manage a plethora of hazards that threaten dire implications. However, too few people actually understand what risk analysis can help us accomplish and, even among experts, knowledge is often limited to one or two applications. Explaining Risk Analysis... more...

  • Sustainability and the Art of Long-Term Thinkingby Bernd Klauer; Reiner Manstetten; Thomas Petersen; Johannes Schiller

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Dealing with time is intimately linked to sustainability, because sustainability, at its core, involves long-term ethical claims. To live up to them, decision and policy-making has to consider long-term development of society, economy, and nature. However, dealing with time and such long-term development is a notoriously difficult subject, both in... more...

  • Peace Through Entrepreneurshipby Steven R. Koltai; Matthew Muspratt

    Brookings Institution Press 2016; US$ 23.99

    Joblessness is the root cause of the global unrest threatening American security. Fostering entrepreneurship is the remedy.
