Preface This Dictionary aims to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date reference of construction, surveying, and civil engineering terms within one publication. The entries address the needs of those studying on built environment courses or engaged in professional practice as well as providing much useful information for those with a general interest in architecture or construction. Builders, trade suppliers, and contractors will find the dictionary a useful desktop manual that can be easily and quickly used to check unfamiliar terminology. Due to the size and nature of the industry, it is difficult for even the most knowledgeable professionals to stay abreast of emerging issues and retain an encyclopedia of construction terms at the front of their mind. In such cases, the book acts as a reminder, giving reassurance of meanings and confidence in communication. Built environment professionals, including architects, building surveyors, building services engineers, construction managers, civil engineers, electrical engineers, facilities managers, mechanical engineers, and quantity surveyors should find the Dictionary useful. It offers a quick and easy guide to terms and information that underpin the environment in which we live, both built and natural. In covering these terms, the authors have delved into the areas of building physics and science, and their application to design, structures, materials, and practices that inform construction and engineering. Issues associated with geology, geography, climate, and the natural environment within which buildings and structures are accommodated are also covered. The policy and legal frameworks that provide governance and procedure to the built environment are included, as well as the issues related to the professional organizations that hold influential positions within the industry. The importance of the sustainability agenda and the related fields of building, engineering, and surveying mean that more people are taking an interest in construction and need to familiarize themselves quickly with the language and terminology used. The dictionary offers a good point of reference for those operating within the field and those just interested in learning more about the built environment and engineering. As a major consumer of the world’s natural resources, the built environment and the impact that it has on the environment is high on the government agenda, with all policy makers ensuring that it is given due consideration. It is expected that the book, terms, and references will continue to grow and be in greater demand as the degree of importance associated with the built environment increases.

Nach Benedict Anderson gibt es keine Nationen, die "Nation" ist eine Erfindung, ein Modell, das nur in bestimmten historischen Konstellationen möglich war. Er löste damit Debatten aus, die bis heute nicht abgeschlossen sind. Beim ersten Erscheinen der deutschen Ausgabe 1988 wurde Anderson vorgeworfen, dass seine Perspektive außereuropäisch und kulturanthropologisch sei. Heute macht gerade das den Reiz des Buches aus.

The field of engineering is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, and there is an ever-growing need for engineers to investigate engineering and scientific resources outside their own area of expertise. However, studies have shown that quality information-finding skills often tend to be lacking in the engineering profession. Using the Engineering Literature is a guide to the wide range of resources in all fields of engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. While print is still important, resources are increasingly being made available in electronic formats, and the Web is now a major resource. Engineers have an effect, whether direct or not, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. The book takes an engineering sub-discipline approach, detailing those resources that are most important for the practicing engineer and the librarians who work in engineering. Each chapter provides a short history and description of the discipline, then lists the most important resources by format: handbooks, dictionaries, texts, journals, websites, etc. Most references include a short annotation. The authors of each chapter are well-known, experienced librarians or faculty in the appropriate engineering discipline, sharing their expertise and experiences with engineering information. This is a guide to resources that are often unknown to the practicing engineer. It also serves as a textbook for the library school student or new engineering librarian, as well as a time-saving handbook for current librarians. The arrangement of materials provides easy and logical access to evaluated resources in engineering and supporting disciplines, providing a tool that is useful in reference services and collection development.

Eine ungewöhnliche Familienchronik. »Liebeszauber« ist die Geschichte der Kashpaws und der Lamartines, zweier Familien, deren Schicksal unauflösbar miteinander verknüpft ist. Sie sind Nachfahren der Ojibwe-Indianer und Überlebende einer rauen Welt. Zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Abenteuerlust und Heimatverbundenheit erzählen die einzelnen Familienmitglieder mal unerbittlich und düster, mal humorvoll und lakonisch ihre Geschichten. Eine Mischung, die Louise Erdrichs Debütroman „schon nach wenigen Seiten unwiderstehlich“ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) macht. »Es gibt kaum eine so gefühlvolle und zugleich scharfsinnige Autorin wie Louise Erdrich.« Anne Tyler. »Nur die Schönheit dieses Romans rettet uns davor, von seiner gewaltige Kraft vollkommen erschüttert zu werden.« Toni Morrison.
