Detailed item info
Synopsis
In this ever more globalized world, contemporary cities don't have the luxury of focusing solely on local problems and issues; they must also concern themselves with questions of global competitiveness, as they vie for jobs and investments not only with their neighbors but with cities around the world. For mid-sized cities, the problem is particularly acute: how are they affected by global trends, and how can they ensure their competitiveness? Urban Reports brings together representatives from six mid-sized European cities--Amsterdam, Bilbao, Copenhagen, Dublin, Zagreb, and Z rich--to address this problem. They report on successful urban revitalization projects and explain their creative strategies, as well as their practical implementation, and they offer a wide variety of ways that mid-sized cities can map out paths for future growth and international success.

Savage and bloodthirsty, or civilized and peaceable? The Celts have long been a subject of enormous fascination, speculation, and misunderstanding. From the ancient Romans to the present day, their real nature has been obscured by a tangled web of preconceived ideas and stereotypes. Barry Cunliffe seeks to reveal this fascinating people for the first time, using an impressive range of evidence, and exploring subjects such as trade, migration, and the evolution of Celtic traditions. Along the way, he exposes the way in which society's needs have shaped our visions of the Celts, and examines such colourful characters as St Patrick, Cu Chulainn, and Boudica.
