Although training has often been considered a separate business category, Richard Cavalier has discovered that training meetings respond, as do any other business meetings, because they are essentially the same, even if curiously structured. Therefore training is best seen as an aspect of group communications and subject to the same laws of learning and psychology. The U.S. military developed the first and best complete system for ISD, and this book is a precise interpretation in business language of that best system. In addition to the step-by-step presentation of the basic development text (as is common to TSD) the author has included actual examples of military forms that indicate both (a) what type of action should be taken in specific instances and (b) the validity of materials prepared by military personnel who practice the Instructional Systems Development system as described here. And most military practitioners of ISD learned ISD in the military by applying its sound principles . . . as you yourself can. ISD is remarkably doable. Expensive versions of ISD are available through consultants and via disk (about $1,000 and up, up) if you know what you need. If not, Common Sense ISD will tell you exactly what you need and show you how ISD can help you to achieve the results you seek . . . guaranteed!

Sidewalk, the winner of the 1999 European Publishers Award for Photography, is an exceptionally strong series of street photographs of New York. As we follow Jeff Mermelstein through the city we are staggered by its dramas and mystery. We confront characters who seem hyper-real, as they wander the streets as if in a dream -- crazed, paranoid, or simply pressured. And we come across incidents that seem totally surreal -- the smoking shoe, the burnt-out diner, the sidewalk that looks as if it has flowed with blood. These photographs are exhilarating and memorable, immensely funny yet deeply disturbing, and were rapturously received by a large audience at this year's Aries International Photography Festival.

Sidewalk City

Remapping Public Space in Ho Chi Minh City

For most, the term “public space” conjures up images of large, open areas: community centers for meetings and social events; the ancient Greek agora for political debates; green parks for festivals and recreation. In many of the world’s major cities, however, public spaces like these are not a part of the everyday lives of the public. Rather, business and social lives have always been conducted along main roads and sidewalks. With increasing urban growth and density, primarily from migration and immigration, rights to the sidewalk are being hotly contested among pedestrians, street vendors, property owners, tourists, and governments around the world. With Sidewalk City, Annette Miae Kim provides the first multidisciplinary case study of sidewalks in a distinctive geographical area. She focuses on Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, a rapidly growing and evolving city that throughout its history, her multicultural residents have built up alternative legitimacies and norms about how the sidewalk should be used. Based on fieldwork over 15 years, Kim developed methods of spatial ethnography to overcome habitual seeing, and recorded both the spatial patterns and the social relations of how the city’s vibrant sidewalk life is practiced. In Sidewalk City, she transforms this data into an imaginative array of maps, progressing through a primer of critical cartography, to unveil new insights about the importance and potential of this quotidian public space. This richly illustrated and fascinating study of Ho Chi Minh City’s sidewalks shows us that it is possible to have an aesthetic sidewalk life that is inclusive of multiple publics’ aspirations and livelihoods, particularly those of migrant vendors.

If you are a dreamer, come in, If you are a dreamer, A wisher, a liar, A hope-er, a pray-er, A magic bean buyer … Come in … for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein’s world begins. You’ll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist. Shel Silverstein’s masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound.

Lethargic sensualists, craven in their drive for publicity, the group's saving grace is that they are uncommonly kind to one another. Do we really know people like this? Probably not, which may in the end be what Mr. Siciliano is after.

"A fantasia of a double tale skimming through the art capitals of Europe with double muses, double love pursuits, double Raphaels, even double authors, a tale dripping with idealized romantic settings, mystery, art, and a touch of magic, The Sidewalk Artist will keep readers wondering what is real and what is artifice--as fine paintings always do." --Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue While in Europe researching her next novel, twenty-something American Tulia Rose falls headlong into a romance with a handsome sidewalk artist. As he takes her on a tour of Europe's artistic treasures, she begins writing the story of the painter Raphael and his secret lover. Yet as her own affair grows deeper, Tulia's sidewalk artist grows more mysterious. Why does he seem so familiar? And what is his connection to the great Renaissance painter? Set in Paris and Italy, this lyrical first novel interweaves two parallel love stories, offering readers a unique view on the research and inspiration that goes into creating historical novels such as The Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Birth of Venus.
