Although this project was canceled in 1942 at the beginning of World War II, Adams' compiled 226 stunning photographs during his work for the government. 12 of these images are presented in this 2017 mini wall calendar. Each photo was meticulously prepared by photographer and imaging expert Grant Collier in an effort to do justice to Adams' images.

What is landscape architecture? Is it gardening, or science, or art? In this book, Bruce Sharky provides a complete overview of the discipline to provide those that are new to the subject with the foundations for future study and practice. The many varieties of landscape practice are discussed with an emphasis on the significant contributions that landscape architects have made across the world in daily practice. Written by a leading scholar and practitioner, this book outlines the subject and explores how, from a basis in garden design, it 'leapt over the garden wall' to encapsulate areas such as urban and park design, community and regional planning, habitat restoration, green infrastructure and sustainable design, and site engineering and implementation. Coverage includes: The effects that natural and human factors have upon design, and how the discipline is uniquely placed to address these challenges Examples of contemporary landscape architecture work - from storm water management and walkable cities to well-known projects like the New York High Line and the London Olympic Park Exploration of how art and design, science, horticulture, and construction come together in one subject Thinking about Landscape Architecture is perfect for those wanting to better understand this fascinating subject, and those starting out as landscape architecture students.

Enclosure marshals bold new arguments about the nature of the conflict in Israel/Palestine. Gary Fields examines the dispossession of Palestinians from their land--and Israel's rationale for seizing control of Palestinian land--in the contexts of a broad historical analysis of power and space and of an enduring discourse about land improvement. Focusing on the English enclosures (which eradicated access to common land across the English countryside), Amerindian dispossession in colonial America, and Palestinian land loss, Fields shows how exclusionary landscapes have emerged across time and geography. Evidence that the same moral, legal, and cartographic arguments were used by enclosers of land in very different historical environments challenges Israel's current claim that it is uniquely beleaguered. This comparative framework also helps readers in the United States and the United Kingdom understand the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the context of their own histories.

Over the past decade a new and controversial energy extraction method known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has rocketed to the forefront of U.S. energy production. With fracking, millions of gallons of water, dangerous chemicals, and sand are injected under high pressure deep into the earth, fracturing hard rock to release oil and gas. Wenonah Hauter, one of the nation’s leading public interest advocates, argues that the rush to fracking is dangerous to the environment and treacherous to human health. Frackopoly describes how the fracking industry began; the technologies that make it possible; and the destruction and poisoning of clean water sources and the release of harmful radiation from deep inside shale deposits, creating what the author calls “sacrifice zones” across the American landscape. The book also examines the powerful interests that have supported fracking, including leading environmental groups, and offers a thorough debunking of its supposed economic benefits. With a wealth of new data, Frackopoly is essential and riveting reading for anyone interested in protecting the environment and ensuring a healthy and sustainable future for all Americans.

With more than seventy photographs, Grey Matter(s) collects Tom Jacobi's striking photographs of some of the most spectacular wonders of the natural world. We've all stood in awe of a majestic snow-capped mountain or admired the stark beauty of a desert, but we probably haven't seen them like this--captured early in the morning, when a reduced color palette reveals them at their most powerful and sublime. For Grey Matter(s), Jacobi traveled over two years to six continents--North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica--capturing indelible images of their distinct natural beauty. One contemplative photograph, taken in Namibia's Deadvlei clay pan, depicts two dark, dead camel thorn trees standing in contrast with the parched white clay. Jacobi's photograph of Western Australia's Wave Rock shows what appears to be a frozen wall of water--some fifty feet high and three-hundred feet long--as though time has been made to stand still, while, on New Zealand's nearby Otago Coast, perfectly round moeraki boulders of Maori lore appear in timeless when shot at twilight. Iceland's Kirkjufell Mountain, which features on the book's cover, can only be captured in reflection when there is no wind and therefore requires absolute mindfulness of the photographer. The book also features many American landscapes, including Mono Lake, Death Valley, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, and Arches National Park. Each of Jacobi's photographs moves us unexpectedly from seeing the natural world through our normal detached contemplation to a more sublime appreciation of time and place, to "pure introspection," in the words of the singer and photographer Bryan Adams, who has written the book's thoughtful foreword.
