What is the good life? Is it to be rich? Or is it to live a rich life? This book is about human values, and how to realize them. A man from Bykrat visits the foreign land of Aipotu (pronounced eyePOtu; it may be read backwards too) and is shown around by his host, Gard. Aipotu is a high-tech, competent, and creative country that ranks human growth and joy of life above material wealth. It has an unconventional form of public administration, new roles for men and women, an unusual urban landscape, data technology designed to respect people’s wishes, and most importantly, a new conception of the inborn potential and importance of children. The people of Aipotu believe that since the ability to live a rich and happy life is formed in childhood, a society must give priority to its children and the conditions of their upbringing. Among other things they have a wonderful school system where each child can find its way according to its interests and develop its capacities, whatever they are, to the fullest. Enjoy this story about the inhabitants of Aipotu and be inspired by their creative solutions!

According to the current scholarly consensus, the apocalypse of 2 Baruch, written after the Fall of Jerusalem, either rejected the concept of the Land of Israel as a place of salvation or regarded it as of minor importance. Inspired by the perspective of Critical Spatial Theory, this book discusses the presuppositions behind this consensus with regard to the spatial epistemology it assumes, and explores the conception of the Land as a broad redemptive category. The result is a fresh portrait of the vitality of the Land-theme in the first centuries of the common era and a new perspective on the spatial imagination of 2 Baruch.

For as long as Lizzie can remember, Albert has been studying the young females of the asylum while reading Lewis Carolls Alice in Wonderland. Lizzie makes the connection between the two when she reads a letter intended for her brother. Whenever she asks him about it, however, he loses his typically happy smile and becomes stoic and withdrawn, refusing to answer her questions. Lizzie being ever curious, her familys reluctance to speak only spurs her into her own investigation. It all started with a girl named Alice. Now the path to rehabilitation at Paupers Lunatic Mill is doused in blood. Can Lizzie save the girls whom life has so horribly hurt? Perhaps they dont want to be saved, as each woman wanders towards a wonderland of violence, darkness and desire.

Historically, 11 million acres of forest, cropland, and open space were converted to urban and other developed uses from 1992 to 1997 on non-federal land in the contiguous U.S. The largest percentage increase was in urban use, which grew by 10% or 7.3 million acres between 1997 and 2001. Forest land was the largest source of land converted to developed uses such as urbanization. Urban and other developed areas are projected to continue to grow substantially, in line with a projected U.S. population increase of more than 120 million people over the next 50 years. Figures.

The Law Of Compulsory Purchase And Compensation

This book is a statement of the current law of compulsory purchase of land and compensation for that purchase. It covers all major aspects of the procedure for the compulsory acquisition of land and deals in full detail with all aspects of the law of compensation for such an acquisition. The many and diverse statutory provisions are organised into a series of chapters containing all principles and rules and there is a full analysis and explanation of the leading authorities on the subject and the principles derived from those authorities without which the subject cannot be understood. The aim of the book is, not only to explain the statutory provisions and to organise the various possible claims for compensation into different heads, but also to explain and analyse the substantial body of case law which has built up, particularly in recent years, and the relationship between that body of law and the underlying statutory provisions. The book also attempts to explain the purpose of the statutory provisions and the reason for the rules that are derived from the authorities. Chapters of the book are devoted to the procedure for formulating and pursuing a claim for compensation and to the valuation principles which must be applied in advancing claims. An Appendix is provided by Mr Nicholas Eden FRICS, a leading valuer in the field, which contains examples of different types of compensation valuation with annotations as to how the valuations are prepared and built up. A further aim of the book is to provide, where possible, practical advice to public authorities and landowners involved in the process of compulsory purchase and compensation as well as to explain the legal principles.

The Zemstvo In Russia

The essays in this 1982 volume result from a conference held at Stanford University in 1978, assembled to assess the overall character and significance of the prerevolutionary Russian experiment with the principle and practice of local self-government, the zemstvo, over half of its existence, 1864-1918. The unifying theme of the collection is the rejection of the liberal myth of the zemstvo as an instrument of social integration. The chapters focus on the substantive elements of conflict and tension that existed within the zemstvos, especially between the institutions' two principal groups: the landed gentry, who dominated the zemstvo, and the peasants, who constituted the majority of the population and were intended to the beneficiaries of most of the economic and cultural programs, yet had little part in their formation. Based on the contributors' extensive knowledge of their respective subjects, many of them provide information from previously unpublished materials in Soviet and American archives.

The Bible And The Land

As the early church moved away from the original cultural setting of the Bible and found its home in the west, Christians lost touch with the ancient world of the Bible. Cultural habits, the particulars of landscape, even the biblical languages soon were unknown. And the cost was enormous: Christians began reading the Bible as foreigners and missing the original images and ideas that shaped a biblical worldview.This new book by New Testament scholar Gary Burge launches a multivolume series that explores how the culture of the biblical world is presupposed in story after story of the Bible. Using cultural anthropology, ancient literary sources, and a selective use of modern Middle Eastern culture, Burge reopens the ancient biblical story and urges us to look at them through new lenses. Here he explores primary motifs from the biblical landscape—geography, water, rock, bread, etc.—and applies them to vital stories from the Bible.
