The first edition of the widely praised Marine Protected Areas for Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises, published in 2005, led to numerous new marine protected area proposals and a number of notable conservation successes around the world. In this completely revised and expanded second edition, new developments in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Pacific are described, as well as future directions for High Seas protection. New sections show how to design and manage MPAs in an ever noisier ocean subject to climate change, increased shipping and hydrocarbon exploration. The process of protected area creation for cetaceans has been accelerated and more than 200 exciting new places are detailed in this edition. This book provides a route map for MPA managers, as well as countries, to meet the ambitious targets for highly protected MPA networks by 2012 and 2020. This book is a key conservation tool and a springboard for worldwide change in human attitudes toward the world ocean where all life originated and where the majority of life on Earth still lives.

Viewing transportation through the lens of current social, economic, and policy aspects, this four-volume reference work explores the topic of transportation across multiple disciplines within the social sciences and related areas, including geography, public policy, business, and economics. The book’s articles, all written by experts in the field, seek to answer such questions as: What has been the legacy, not just economically but politically and socially as well, of President Eisenhower’s modern interstate highway system in America? With that system and the infrastructure that supports it now in a state of decline and decay, what’s the best path for the future at a time of enormous fiscal constraints? Should California politicians plunge ahead with plans for a high-speed rail that every expert says—despite the allure—will go largely unused and will never pay back the massive investment while at this very moment potholes go unfilled all across the state? What path is best for emerging countries to keep pace with dramatic economic growth for their part? What are the social and financial costs of gridlock in our cities? Features: Approximately 675 signed articles authored by prominent scholars are arranged in A-to-Z fashion and conclude with Further Readings and cross references. A Chronology helps readers put individual events into historical context; a Reader’s Guide organizes entries by broad topical or thematic areas; a detailed index helps users quickly locate entries of most immediate interest; and a Resource Guide provides a list of journals, books, and associations and their websites. While articles were written to avoid jargon as much as possible, a Glossary provides quick definitions of technical terms. To ensure full, well-rounded coverage of the field, the General Editor with expertise in urban planning, public policy, and the environment worked alongside a Consulting Editor with a background in Civil Engineering. The index, Reader’s Guide, and cross references combine for thorough search-and-browse capabilities in the electronic edition. Available in both print and electronic formats, Encyclopedia of Transportation is an ideal reference for libraries and those who want to explore the issues that surround transportation in the United States and around the world.

D. M. Street Jr., a lifetime sailor of tremendous experience wrote this book in 1979. In the Prologue he reviews what he said in 1979 and updates it to the 21st Century in the light of new equipment available to the yachtsman and in the light of the considerable sailing he has done since that time.Now aged 74, D. M. Street Jr. bases his views (not always popular ones) on a lifetime at sea. Most yachtsmen think of Street and Iolaire-the 46-ft. engineless yawl built in 1905 that Street has owned since 1957-as the author of Caribbean Guides. They forget (or do not realize) the breadth of his varied experience in delivering and navigating other boats. Thirty six trips between North America and the islands or the reverse; a dozen trans-atlantics; four Fastnet Races; One Bermuda Race; plus other distance races and regattas too numerous to mention, on various different boats.He has cruised the entire eastern Caribbean, east coast of North America, European waters: Ireland, England, the Baltic, France, Brittany, Normandy, the Western Mediterranean. He has also cruised all the Atlantic Islands: Madeiran Archipelago, Canaries, Cape Verdes, Bermuda, and the Azores. Few yachting authors have has as extensive and varied experience cruising both inshore and off shore.He has been an enthusiastic racer all his life, racing boats of all types from dinghies to J-boats where he has served as Rock, Tide & Wind Pilot on Shamrock V. Since 1985 he and his sons have competitively raced their 1937 Dragon Gypsy in Glandore, Ireland.
