Learn what America's most venerable ornithological institution has discovered about birds in its past 100 years of study.* Essays by Jared Diamond, John W. Fitzpatrick, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, and Scott Weidensaul* The Cornell Lab of Ornithology celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2015* 200 images, illustrating more than 100 North American bird species * Connecting people to birds opens their eyes to the natural world!An intimate yet stunning exploration of North American bird species, The Living Bird also celebrates our joyful and complex relationship with birds, through images by an award-winning photographer and essays by some of the world's leading naturalists and bird enthusiasts. In 2015 the Cornell Lab of Ornithology will celebrate its 100th anniversary as one of the world's most prestigious and oldest bird organizations. As a cornerstone of those celebrations, the Lab reveals the essence of its work in this visual and experiential journey through the fascinating and beautiful realm of birds. Connecting people with birds is often a first step in opening their eyes to the natural world around them. From enjoying song sparrows rimming a birdbath at home to spotting a pileated woodpecker in deep forest, the appeal of watching and listening to birds leads people into a greater understanding of their environment. The Living Bird features three engaging and informative essays that delve into the mysteries of birds: "The Secret Lives of Birds" focuses on the ways in which bird behavior and habits amaze us. "Inspiration Aloft" looks at how birds enrich our lives and engage so many backyard citizen scientists, while "Beacons of Our Planet" explains what birds tell us about the world in which we live. Each essay is supported by a portfolio of images with informative captions that provide memorable visual context. A foreword, introduction, and afterword provide further context, three human profiles reveal how engaged the bird community can be, and "In the Field" reports share brief, anecdotal first-person accounts from the photographer. A final section introduces the work of The Cornell Lab of Ornithology--and all that it has accomplished over the last 100 years.

A new look at the European Union's role as a global actor, withspecial focus on the theme of interregionalism in its relationswith key regions around the world: Africa, Asia, South America, North America and Central-Eastern Europe. This new collectionclearly shows how, since the end of the Cold War, the European Union has gradually expanded its external relations and foreign policies and become a global actor in world politics. During the last decade interregionalism has become a key component of the EU s external relations and foreign policies. In fact, the EU has quickly become the hub of a large number of interregional arrangements with a number of regions around the world. Promoting regional and interregional relations not only justifies and enhances the EU s own existence and efficiency as a global player, the strategy also promotes the legitimacy and status of other regions, giving rise to a deepening of cross-cutting interregional relations in trade and economic relations, political dialogue, development cooperation, cultural relations and security cooperation. This book was previously published as a special issue of the leadingJournal of European Integration."

  • Publisher: Routledge



Videogames are a unique artistic form, and to analyse and understand them an equally unique language is required. Cremin turns to Deleuze and Guattari’s non-representational philosophy to develop a conceptual toolkit for thinking anew about videogames and our relationship to them. Rather than approach videogames through a language suited to other media forms, Cremin invites us to think in terms of a videogame plane and the compositions of developers and players who bring them to life. According to Cremin, we are not simply playing videogames, we are creating them. We exceed our own bodily limitations by assembling forces with the elements they are made up of. The book develops a critical methodology that can explain what every videogame, irrespective of genre or technology, has in common and proceeds on this basis to analyse their differences. Drawing from a wide range of examples spanning the history of the medium, Cremin discerns the qualities inherent to those regarded as classics and what those qualities enable the player to do. Exploring Videogames with Deleuze and Guattari analyses different aspects of the medium, including the social and cultural context in which videogames are played, to develop a nuanced perspective on gendered narratives, caricatures and glorifications of war. It considers the processes and relationships that have given rise to industrial giants, the spiralling costs of making videogames and the pressure this places developers under to produce standard variations of winning formulas. The book invites the reader to embark on a molecular journey through worlds neither ‘virtual’ nor ‘real’ exceeding image, analogy and metaphor. With clear explanations and detailed analysis, Cremin demonstrates the value of a Deleuzian approach to the study of videogames, making it an accessible and valuable resource for students, scholars, developers and enthusiasts.
