More than four centuries on from its first publication, discover one of the jewels of urban cartography and civic studies. This quality reprint includes the most enchanting color plates from the Civitates orbis terrarum, a magnificent collection of town map engravings, produced between 1572 and 1617.Featuring plans, bird's-eye views, and maps for all major cities in Europe, plus important urban centers in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, this masterwork in urban mapping gives us a comprehensive view of city life at the turn of the 17th century. It was edited and annotated by theologian and publisher Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, but also involved over a hundred different artists and cartographers who contributed not only town views, but additional elements, such as figures in local dress, courtroom scenes, and topographical details, to help convey the situation, commercial power, and political influence of each city.TASCHEN's reprint contextualizes the plates with selected extracts from Braun's original texts on the history and significance of each urban center as well as detailed commentaries to place each city map in its cartographical and cultural context.About the seriesBibliotheca Universalis — Compact cultural companions celebrating the eclectic TASCHEN universe!

Plant Protection in Organic Arable & Vegetable Crops

ISBN: 9780478108439

Developed to address a perceived lack of information on pest, disease and weed management in organic farming in New Zealand, this new book is an invaluable resource for organic arable and vegetable growers and their consultants, as well as for those considering a move to reduced chemical usage or organics. Beginning with the central principles of soil health and the management of pests, disease and weeds in organic growing, the book also contains standalone chapters on those pest, disease and weed problems specific to eight arable crop (barley, borage, clover seed, lentils, grass seed, linseed, maize and wheat) and nine vegetable crops (asparagus, brassicas, capsicums, carrots, onions, process peas, potatoes, squash and tomatoes), together with information on recommended organic control methods. Throughout, anecdotal material has been deliberately avoided - instead draft chapters of the book were circulated among scientists, growers and consultants for practical, objective feedback and sound evidence to incorporate into the final text. Wherever possible, information has been related to New Zealand conditions and to current organic certification standards.

'If Mr Pickering had done his job well and taught me the right syllabus, maybe I would have studied English at university. He didn't and now I'm a full time drummer who loves Pride and Prejudice. I guess it worked out in the end' - Femi Koleoso, drummer (Gorillaz and The Ezra Collective) 'An infallible guide to the pleasures and pitfalls of teaching the strange canon of texts selected for this annual trial by ordeal. Sharp critical insights combine with hilarious anecdotes... Highly recommended' - Professor David Duff, Queen Mary University of London What Page, Sir? records the hilarious and sometimes painful experience of an English teacher as he struggles through some very familiar literary texts with some very unenthusiastic teenagers. Alongside the comedy that a teacher could really live without, is a fresh and irreverent look at the stalwarts of the school curriculum. Featuring An Inspector Calls, Lord of the Flies, Of Mice and Men, plus the obvious works by Jane Austen, Dickens and Shakespeare texts that seem to have been the staple for secondary schools forever, and, in some cases, remain a drag for everyone involved. But beneath the buffoonery in the classroom, this book makes a more serious point about the education we are serving up for our children and whether it's finally time for change.
