Urban Design and Planning Policy
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The rising authority of neo-traditional urban planning and design either in the United States via New Urbanism or in Europe via the European Urban Renaissance might provide much needed answers to the failures of modern urbanism to produce sustainable urban environments. Nevertheless, the ethos of Modernist spatial planning seems to be pervasive on current planning processes despite its many flaws. The first part of this book shows how urban design theory and in particular neo- traditional urban design theory might inspire and reform current planning practices so as to counteract incoherent urban growth and promote a more inclusive and sustainable urbanism. In the book's second part, a contextual analysis of the Portuguese planning system provides an in-depth case study that probes the ability and constraints of a local planning and development control framework to incorporate urban design issues and concerns. Urban design as public policy, the overarching subject of the book, is a theme that should appeal to planners, architects, engineers, geographers, public officials, and anyone else with an interest in cities and urban affairs.

Transformational Leadership
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Transformational leadership has been used to enhance the development of firms strategies by focusing on the common interests of the community. This book aims to analyze the impact of transformational leadership and ethical integrity in firms strategic orientation related to corporate social responsibility. A survey of the largest Portuguese firms was conducted during the second quarter of 2009, data from 50 participating firms were gathered through a self-reporting questionnaire. The results indicated that transformational leadership is positively related to a firm s strategic orientation in regard to corporate social responsibility. However, leaders ethical integrity was not significantly linked to the adoption of corporate social responsibility practices. These findings suggest that further research is needed in regard to leaders ethical integrity and firms social responsibility orientation. Practitioners may also benefit from these findings by using them to transform themselves into truly transformational leaders who incorporate corporate social responsibility as a core strategic value within their firms.

Forest Context and Policies in Portugal
160,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides an up-to-date analysis of the Portuguese forests and forestry sector, including its history, its total economic value, current threats and opportunities and future challenges, namely the need to incorporate more planning and technology in forest management practices. The methodological approach of analysing the forestry sector in terms of its total economic value, and the use of this new perspective to correctly perceive the forest sector and to base development strategies is unique. Also, the use of new methods and technologies in the Portuguese forestry sector will be an opportunity to share these experiences with a wider international audience. For example, fire incidence during the summer has almost no parallel in the Western World, implying that Portuguese forest landscapes function as a "natural lab of wildfires" from which much can be learned globally. Thus, the outcomes of the fire management policies adopted might represent important lessons for Mediterranean basin countries.

The Guaran¿nd Their Missions
104,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The thirty Guaraní missions of the Río de la Plata were the largest and most prosperous of all the Catholic missions established throughout the frontier regions of the Americas to convert, acculturate, and incorporate indigenous peoples and their lands into the Spanish and Portuguese empires. But between 1768 and 1800, the mission population fell by almost half and the economy became insolvent. This unique socioeconomic history provides a coherent and comprehensive explanation for the missions' operation and decline, providing readers with an understanding of the material changes experienced by the Guaraní in their day-to-day lives. Although the mission economy funded operations, sustained the population, and influenced daily routines, scholars have not focused on this important aspect of Guaraní history, primarily producing studies of religious and cultural change. This book employs mission account books, letters, and other archival materials to trace the Guaraní mission work regime and to examine how the Guaraní shaped the mission economy. These materials enable the author to poke holes in longheld beliefs about Jesuit mission management and offer original arguments regarding the Bourbon reforms that ultimately made the missions unsustainable.

250 Useful Portuguese Phrases while Backpacking
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Several hundred years ago the Portuguese Empire stretched from South America all the way to parts of Asia. As a result many countries in the world today incorporate Portuguese into their official national language. Cape Verde, Angola, and Brazil all speak a dialect of Portuguese that is closely related to Portuguese from Portugal, even after several hundred years of separation. There even exist cities in China and India where the locals speak Portuguese because of the influence of Portuguese colonists centuries ago! Of course, the largest and most populous of these countries, and the one most frequently visited by backpackers, is Brazil. Thus, this short book on useful Portuguese phrases for backpackers will focus mainly on Brazilian Portuguese.
