Offshore Adriatico: Opportunità di riutilizzo delle strutture esistenti (Italian Edition)
L’obbiettivo di questa ricerca è quello di proporre una possibilità di riutilizzo delle piattaforme estrattive offshore destinate alla totale rimozione a seguito della chiusura dei relativi giacimenti di idrocarburi.
Lo studio di Agnese Paci ha innanzitutto il pregio di avere sviluppato una proposta applicata ad un caso reale - la piattaforma Angela-Angelina installata di fronte alla costa ravennate - e che, da un punto di vista tecnico, risulterebbe realizzabile con relativa facilità. Questo studio va quindi oltre, recuperando il concetto di "isola artificiale" e proponendo una transizione verso una seconda vita post-industriale che potrebbe trovare nel turismo e nella ricerca scientifica una sintesi originale e sostenibile se supportata da uno specifico inquadramento legislativo e, non in ultimo, da investitori lungimiranti.
In definitiva, la filosofia che sta alla base di questa proposta è quella che interpreta qualsiasi riconversione di un insediamento produttivo come un caso di archeologia industriale meritevole di salvaguardia. L’obiettivo felicemente raggiunto nello studio di Agnese Paci è stato quindi quello di avere coniugato, anche nel settore dell’oil&gas offshore, temi apparentemente dissonanti - industria e turismo - proponendo una soluzione che, oltreché tecnicamente realizzabile, si dimostra anche sostenibile da un punto di vista ambientale, sociale ed economico.

Luminary (Paranormal Romance Mystery Novel) (Best E. Edition): (Soul Mate Selling Series)
Enjoy the best selling, award winning, soul mate series that has everyone falling for Emily Wren. Luminary will transport fans of Twilight, The Mortal Instruments and The Vampire Diaries to a world unlike any you’ve ever read about…

Who says you have only one soul mate?
And you thought your life had drama.

Emily is a girl waiting to find Mr. Right and fall in love. But she’s unaware that a great tragedy has happened, killing her soul mate and the backup one-- two young men that she's never met. Does that mean she’s doomed to a life without true love?

A supernatural race known as Paragons-- who work in the shadows must do something unthinkable. They must retrofit a new soul mate for her. Change the make up of a human’s soul so that he’s her perfect complement in every way. It's their only option for insuring a soul mate match -- which releases much needed magic into the world. Magic that advances the causes of mankind.

Reshaping the precious hallmarks and soul markers is a nasty painful business without guarantees. But they must try-- if the girl is to have any shot at real happiness.
Emily Wren is focused on school and her budding career. Smart, confident, feisty and too modest to realize her own beauty, she’s never had a boyfriend. If her protector is successful that could all soon change.

But life in the supernatural world, even the secret world of Paragons, is never quite that simple.
Treachery from an unsuspected quarter threatens the super immortal’s plans. Even more baffling-- vampires, werewolves, a shapeshifter, witches and a psychic have suddenly developed a not so subtle interest in the love life of the girl. Will she meet her soul mate? Or is something else going on? Is there more at stake than the happiness of one special human?

New Vision 2050: A Platinum Society (Science for Sustainable Societies)
This book presents the 'New Vision 2050,' which adds the concept of the “platinum society” to the “Vision 2050”.
The 20th century was a century in which energy led the development of material civilization, resulting in deletion of resources, global warming and climate change. What form should sustainable material and energy take to protect the Earth? The 'Vision 2050' was established 20 years ago as a model that we should pursue for the next half century. Fortunately, the world is on course for the Vision 2050.The 21st century will be a century in which we seek qualitative richness, with the Vision 2050 as the material basis. That is, a “platinum society” that has resource self-sufficiency and resource symbiosis, and where people remain active throughout their lives and have a wide range of choices and opportunities for free participation. Since the author presented the concept of 'Vision 2050' in 1999, the idea has been introduced in two books entitled Vision 2050: Roadmap for a Sustainable Earth (2008) and Beyond the Limits to Growth: New Ideas for Sustainability from Japan (2014). The latter includes a chapter that sheds light on the concept of a “platinum society”. In this publication, the author presents the 'New Vision 2050' in more detail.

The Frightened Land: Land, Landscape and Politics in South Africa in the Twentieth Century

An investigation into the spatial politics of separation and division in South Africa, principally during the apartheid years, and the effects of these physical and conceptual barriers on the land. In contrast to the weight of literature focusing on post-apartheid South Africa, the focus of this book includes the spatial, political and cultural landscape practices of the apartheid government and also refers to contemporary work done in Australia, England and the US. It probes the uncertainty and ambiguity of identities and cultures in post-apartheid society in order to gain a deep understanding of the history that individuals and society now confront.

Drawing on a wealth of research materials including literature, maps, newspapers, monuments, architectural drawings, government legislation, tourist brochures, political writing and oral histories, this book is well illustrated throughout and is a unique commentary on the spatial politics of a time of enormous change.
