  1. Urban Smellscapes

    Olfactory Architectures

    Smell is a sense most architects have engaged with at some point in their work: whether designing a house, a residential care home or the industrial kitchen for a commercial restaurant, the ventilation of rooms and removal of strong and potentially unpleasant odours is a well-rehearsed practice. Yet in addition to the annoying smells, olfaction also offers many opportunities that have traditionally been overlooked, and it’s not just in architecture but right across the built environment professions.

  2. Contesting Hidden Waters

    While publications exist on conflict resolution for water resources, most focus almost exclusively on surface water with occasional mention of groundwater. No books focus exclusively on conflicts over groundwater resources despite the fact that most of the world’s freshwater supplies are underground, that over 300 transboundary aquifers have been mapped, and that over 50% of the world’s population relies on groundwater for drinking water. In Contesting Hidden Waters, the author describes the principal differences between surface water and groundwater disputes.

  3. Culture, Politics and Climate Change

    Focusing on cultural values and norms as they are translated into politics and policy outcomes, this book presents a unique contribution in combining research from varied disciplines and from both the developed and developing world.

  4. Livelihoods, Natural Resources, and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

    Sustaining and strengthening local livelihoods is one of the most fundamental challenges faced by post-conflict countries. By degrading the natural resources that are essential to livelihoods and by significantly hindering access to those resources, conflict can wreak havoc on the ability of war-torn populations to survive and recover. This book explores how natural resource management initiatives in more than twenty countries and territories have supported livelihoods and facilitated post-conflict peacebuilding.

  6. Racialized Schools

    While racism continues to be a persistent and pervasive issue in our schools nationwide, the professionals charged with creating safe and nurturing educational environments have few resources available to address racism directly. Racialized Schools is on the leading edge of books that do just that and includes the latest research and praxis to help school personnel confront racism in a professional manner. 

  7. Pico-solar Electric Systems

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the technology behind the pico-solar revolution and offers guidance on how to test and choose quality products. The book also discusses how pioneering companies and initiatives are overcoming challenges to reach scale in the marketplace, from innovative distribution strategies to reach customers in rural India and Tanzania, to product development in Cambodia, product assembly in Mozambique and the introduction of ‘pay as you go’ technology in Kenya.
