Boek cover Korea at the Center: Dynamics of Regionalism in Northeast Asia van Charles K. Armstrong (Hardcover)
The common images of Korea view the peninsula as a long-standing battleground for outside powers and the Cold War's last divided state. But, Korea's location at the very center of Northeast Asia gives it a pivotal role in the economic integration of the region and the dynamic development of its more powerful neighbors. A great wave of economic expansion, driven first by the Japanese miracle and then by the ascent of China, has made South Korea - an economic powerhouse in its own right - the hub of the region once again, a natural corridor for railroads and energy pipelines linking Asiatic...

Twenty Neighbors in Asia
China shares borders with 20 other countries.

Boek cover Behind The Urals van John Scott (Onbekend)
An American Worker In Russia’s City Of Steel
John Scott left the University of Wisconsin for the Soviet Union in 1931.

He lived in a barracks, suffered cold and privation, studied evenings, married...

Boek cover Behind the Urals van John Scott (Paperback)
An American Worker in Russia's City of Steel
Behind the Urals, first published in 1942, is a fascinating first-hand account of a young American's journey to Stalin's Soviet Union where he lived and worked for 6 years helping build a massive steel plant in a former wilderness east of the Ural Mountains. The isolated settlement grew into the new city of Magnitogorsk. Author Scott's account remains a classic work on daily life for workers in the Soviet Union of the 1930s. Of interest too are his own experiences: the dangerous working conditions, extreme cold, food shortages, and inadequate housing. During his stay, he meets and weds a...

Boek cover The Human City van Joel Kotkin (Paperback)
Urbanism for the Rest of Us
In The Human City, internationally recognized urbanist Joel Kotkin challenges the conventional urban-planning wisdom that favors high-density, pack-and-stack strategies. By exploring the economic, social, and environmental benefits of decentralized, family-friendly alternatives, Kotkin concludes that while the word suburbs may be outdated, the concept is certainly not dead. Aside from those wealthy enough to own spacious urban homes, people forced into high-density development must accept crowded living conditions and limited privacy, thus degrading their quality of life. Dispersion,...
