              Social Sustainability, Climate Resilience and Community-Based Urban Development: What About the People? (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Urban communities around the world face increased stress from natural disasters linked to climate change, and other urban pressures. They need to grow rapidly stronger in order to cope, adapt and flourish. Strong social networks and social cohesion can be more important for a com...munity's resilience than the actual physical structures of a city. But how can urban planning and design support these critical collective social strengths? This book offers blue sky thinking from the applied social and behavioural sciences, and urban planning. It looks at case studies from 14 countries around the world - including India, the USA, South Africa, Indonesia, the UK and New Zealand - focusing on initiatives for housing, public space and transport stops, and also natural disasters such as flooding and earthquakes. Building on these insights, the authors propose a 'gold standard': a socially aware planning process and policy recommendation for those drawing up city sustainability and climate change resilience strategies, and urban developers looking to build climate-proof infrastructure and spaces. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of urban studies, resilience studies and climate change policy, as well as policymakers and practitioners working in related fields.

              This volume explores mixed race/mixed ethnic identities in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Mixed race and mixed ethnic identity are growing in popularity as research topics around the world. This edited collection looks at mixed race and mixed ethnic identity in New Zealand: a unique conte...xt, as multiple ethnic identities have been officially recognised for more than 30 years. The book draws upon research across a range of disciplines, exploring the historical and contemporary ways in which official and social understandings of mixed race and ethnicity have changed. It focuses on the interactions between race, ethnicity, national identity, indigeneity and culture, especially in terms of visibility and self-defined identity in the New Zealand context. Mana Tangatarua situates New Zealand in the existing international scholarship, positioning experiences from New Zealand within theoretical understandings of mixedness. The chapters develop wider theories of mixed race and mixed ethnic identity, at macro and micro levels, looking at the interconnections between the two. The volume as a whole reveals the diverse ways in which mixed race is experienced and understood, providing a key contribution to the theory and development of mixed race globally.

              The Roots of Modern Terrorism
               

              The Roots of Modern Terrorism (Paperback)

              This book differs from the bulk of existing literature dealing with terrorism by emphasising the historic theoretical and practical foundation to contemporary terrorism, by placing it within the framework of contending hypotheses about international relations, strategic and confl...cit analysis, along with some of the key writings on peace and reconciliation. It argues that terrorism is a logical, and often reasonable, mode for expression of grievances by disenfranchised groups or organisations, which are unable to be heard through normal political processes. In order to understand the potential of terrorism one has to analyse the structures available for effecting dissent and change. Modernisation and globilisation combined with the increased power of states increases the attractiveness of terrorism for disaffected groups. Within this context the study links various groups, forms and regions where terrorism exists. Unlike most studies it does not start from a state-centred bias, ie how to prevent attacks on legitimate states, but assesses terrorism within its own motivations, methods and objectives.

              The Psychology of Gardening is the first book of its kind to explore gardening from a psychological perspective. Research shows that positive effects of gardening arise from both active physical participation and experiencing nearby nature. The book highlights how both these elem...ents contribute to our understanding of the benefits of gardening. Each chapter reviews a different aspect of gardening experience, demonstrating how individual, evolutionary and social psychological theories offer new insights into a very familiar activity. The book will be of great interest to students in environmental psychology as well as members of the horticultural society and those interested in gardening.

              Indigenous Museology examines the emergence of indigenising museologies in New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Canada. As the first international comparative study of museums and indigenous people, the book produces new knowledge about indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being ...that are emerging from the intersection of museums, heritage and public history with native ontologies and epistemologies. Whilst McCarthy acknowledges the specificities of national contexts, he also takes the time to explore the commonalities and differences between them, thus providing a unique perspective never attempted before.
