John C. Miles
R258 R224 Discovery Miles 2 240 Save R34 (13%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Welcome to London in the late 17th century. After years of Civil War and repressive Puritan rule, King Charles II is back in town and his restoration has brought new life to this great city. The theatres are open again, markets and shops are thriving and the streets are crowded. People are talking about new ideas in science and architecture and experimenting with new fashions.

This book takes you on a journey across London at this time, telling you about its 'five-star' sights and their history. It also explains the key events of the time: the reasons for the Restoration, the arrival of the Plague and, of course, the Great Fire of 1666 and the new London that arose out of its ashes. Published to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire, this book gives older children a much broader context for this famous event. With a mixture of maps, archive images and present day photography, it acts as a wonderful guide both to London in the 1660s and how its legacy can still be found in the capital today.

London on Fire is an ideal resource for readers aged 10+ and supports the history curriculum at Key Stage 3.

Rising above the northwestern part of the Cascades is the magnificent bulk of Mount Baker - "Koma Kulshan" ("the steep white mountain" to the early Nooksack Indians). Long a focal point of human interest, this slumbering volcano has been seen in many different lights--as a sacred object, a great challenge, a stimulus for creativity, a playground. Yet, despite all human actions and aspirations over the years, the mountain retains its majesty, power and mystery. This is the story of man and Mount Baker, complete with engaging first hand tales and a wealth of rare photos.

Wilderness in National Parks - Playground or Preserve (Hardcover): John C. Miles Wilderness in National Parks - Playground or Preserve (Hardcover)
John C. Miles
R2,143 Discovery Miles 21 430 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Wilderness in National Parks casts light on the complicated relationship between the National Park Service and its policy goals of wilderness preservation and recreation. By examining the overlapping and sometimes contradictory responsibilities of the park service and the national wilderness preservation system, John C. Miles finds the National Park Service still struggling to deal with an idea that lies at the core of its mission and yet complicates that mission, nearly one hundred years into its existence. The National Park Service's ambivalence about wilderness is traced from its beginning to the turn of the twenty-first century. The Service is charged with managing more wilderness acreage than any government agency in the world and, in its early years, frequently favored development over preservation. The public has perceived national parks as permanently protected wilderness resources, but in reality this public confidence rests on shaky ground. Miles shows how changing conceptions of wilderness affected park management over the years, with a focus on the tension between the goals of providing recreational spaces for the American people and leaving lands pristine and undeveloped for future generations.

Conceptual Design is one of the few areas of Engineering Design where computers have yet to make an impact. With the development of Knowledge Based Systems it is now possible to rectify this situation. This publication deals with the use of Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) as tools for conceptual design. Included are neglected aspects such as evaluation and user needs. Practical Knowledge Based Systems in Conceptual Design is based on the authors' experience of developing KBS for use in civil engineering, an area of industrial application which is recognised as being one of great potential. The methodology has been tried and tested by designers. Examples of systems which have been developed to solve specific design problems are included.
