Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House (Hardcover): Steven M Reiss Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House (Hardcover)
Steven M Reiss
R880 Discovery Miles 8 800 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Frank Lloyd Wright designed and realized over 500 buildings between 1886 and 1959 for a wide range of clients. In "Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House, " architect Steven M. Reiss presents the updated and detailed story of one of Wright's few Virginia commissions. Designed and built for Loren and Charlotte Pope and later purchased by Marjorie and Robert Leighey, the Pope-Leighey House stands as a stunning example of an innovative form of shelter--which Wright called Usonian--for families beset by the Great Depression. Here, and elsewhere, Wright offered a unique and unprecedented approach for homes that would be small yet architecturally significant, carefully sited, and constructed of readily available local materials. He believed that anyone with an acre of land should have the opportunity to own a Usonian home.

Set in Northern Virginia, the Pope-Leighey House has an unusual history in that it has been moved twice, first to the grounds of the National Trust's Woodlawn to rescue it from the path of Route 66 in Falls Church, then to re-site it to better correspond to its original orientation. Wright's mission was to remind us that "we need to see life in simpler terms." In this amply illustrated book, Reiss echoes Wright's reminder that small, carefully built structures should be the starting point of sustainable and environmentally responsible house design.

This book focuses on normative questions that arise about globalization. Much social science research is devoted to exploring the political, legal, social and economic changes that occur all around us. This books offers an introductory treatment of the philosophical questions that arise about these changes. Why would people have human rights? We will be looking at different answers to this question. Could there be a universal morality in the first place? This question captures a particular kind of skepticism that has also been applied to the human rights movement and needs to be addresses for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be intellectually credible. Ought there to be states? Perhaps there are more appropriate ways of organizing humanity politically. What does distributive justice require at the global level? The world in which we live is one of a striking inequality that challenges us to explore what a just world would look like. What does justice require of us with regard to climate change? We now live in a geological era sometimes called the Athropocene: it is human action that has the biggest impact on the future of all life. How should we think about fairness in trade? Trade, after all, ties people together around the world. And what does justice imply for immigration policy? Each of these questions is answered in its own chapter. Introductions to political philosophy normally focus mostly or entirely on domestic questions. This introduction is concerned with questions of global scope throughout.

Solving America's Sexual Crises (Paperback, Revised): Ira L. Reiss Solving America's Sexual Crises (Paperback, Revised)
Ira L. Reiss; As told to Harriet M. Reiss
R486 R416 Discovery Miles 4 160 Save R70 (14%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Noted sexologist cites honesty, equality, and responsibility as key to solving to our nation's sexual dilemma.

Rape, teen pregnancy, child sexual abuse, and AIDS still plague us despite new technology and increased sexual awareness. Religious leaders blame the media for our sexual problems, while others remain ignorant or in denial. Sociologist Ira L. Reiss contends that only real solutions will result in a new generation of sexual problem solvers. In Solving America's Sexual Crises, he argues that we can reduce alarming rates of sexually transmitted disease, sexual violence and abuse, and unwanted pregnancy through responsible dialogue and cooperative action.

Reiss's direct, lucid, and challenging analyses of these problems, demonstrates that our current sexual malaise emerged from Victorian attitudes, religious intolerance, ignorance, and misconceptions about sexuality. Solving America's Sexual Crises is a pluralistic approach, touching on everything from safe-sex to sex therapy. Only by altering our outmoded, dogmatic notions about sexuality can we begin to manage and eventually solve current and future sexual problems.
