Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Play Text By Malcolm Brown
Paperback: $7.13
Prints in 3-5 business days
A dramatization of Robert Louis Stevenson's story of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". The respectable, middle-aged Dr. Jekyll creates a drug that separates out the evil side of his nature into... More > the much younger Mr. Hyde. At first he enjoys the freedom such a dual personality gives him, but as time passes Jekyll comes to loathe his other self and events spiral out of his control as he finds he cannot rid himself of his evil alter-ego. In this version Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are played by two different actors, which allows for dialogue between the two sides of Jekyll’s nature. The bulk of the dialogue in the play has been taken or adapted from the dialogue and narrative in the book, and the dramatization tries to be as faithful to the original as it is possible to be in translating a story from one medium into another.< Less
From Language Lab to Language Center and Beyond: The Past, Present, and Future of Language Center Design By Felix Kronenberg
Hardcover: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The term ‘language lab’ conjures up a very distinctive image: orderly rows of cubicles designed for individual students to face machines. It is a strong image, so strong that even... More > today’s centers are frequently still referred to as labs, despite the staff’s insistence on the changed nomenclature. But as this volume shows, today’s language centers have dramatically changed, adapted, and evolved since the first language laboratories of the early twentieth century and their dramatic rise during the postwar years. This volume shows how far we have come since the early days of the language laboratory. Inspired by the 50th anniversary IALLT/FLEAT conference at Harvard University (August 11-15, 2015), this publication was conceived to create a mosaic of different directions, of different missions, of different designs that the language centers at the authors’ institutions have embraced.< Less
Taking Up the Security Challenge of Climate Change By Rymn J. Parsons
Paperback: $15.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Climate change, in which man-made global warming is a major factor, will likely have dramatic and long lasting consequences with profound security implications, making it a challenge the United... More > States must urgently take up. The security implications will be most pronounced in places where the effects of climate change are greatest, particularly affecting weak states already especially vulnerable to environmental destabilization. Two things are vitally important: stemming the tide of climate change and adapting to its far-reaching consequences. This project examines the destabilizing effects of climate change and how the military could be used to mitigate global warming and to assist at-risk peoples and states to adapt to climate change, thereby promoting stability and sustainable security. Recommendations are made on the importance of U.S. leadership on the critical issue of global warming, on defining and dealing with the strategic dimensions of climate change, and, as a case in point...< Less
Rising Waters: Scenario Planning 2010 – 2030 Executive Summary By Stephen Aldrich
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Climate change is already evident in the Hudson Valley — and is predicted to accelerate in the coming years. Most climate scientists expect climate in the Hudson Valley to change dramatically... More > over the course of the coming century. The Rising Waters project aims to strengthen the preparedness and adaptive capacity of the Hudson River Estuary Watershed (HREW) to meet the impacts of future climate change.

Creating scenarios educates participants on important aspects of complicated problems and helps to build a shared conceptual framework for dialogue leading to potential solutions. Scenarios build adaptive capacity because they build shared group understanding.< Less

Daisy Miller By Henry James
eBook (ePub): $1.99
While on a trip to Switzerland, Frederick Winterbourne is introduced to a young, beautiful American named Daisy Miller. Although Daisy has a reputation for being frivolous and flirtatious,... More > Winterbourne is intrigued by her, so when the two meet again in Rome, he takes an interest in the rumours about her behaviour and, against wiser counsel, becomes involved once again with her. Despite being criticized for how Daisy’s character portrayed American values at the time, Daisy Miller was an immediate success and remains one of Henry James’ most popular works.

Scorn of Women By Jack London
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The original short story "The Scorn of Women" is a delightful comedy of manners. Not only does it humorously illustrate the power of intelligent women over a clueless man, it also satirizes... More > the pretentious class distinctions--even in the remote Yukon Territory--between the upper class miners' wives and the dance hall girl of ill repute. For the dramatic adaptation, London has emphasized the class conflict between the female leads at the expense of the humor, in an attempt to make Freda into some sort of Ibsenesque heroine. While in the short story Floyd was mostly a harmless comic boob, in the play he develops into more of a villain, which leaves one to question whether the happy ending is truly a happy one.< Less

The quest for continuous renewal and improvement is a driver towards a thriving development, as well as land use impact, displacement... More > and “constructive destruction” with all the side effects. Urban development is not a one-way street leading towards an ideal end. Changes of the framework – like revival or crisis of economic sectors, the change of social ideals or ecologically driven challenges – demand the adaptation of the system of aims and development strategies. Also changes of the infrastructure and targeted interventions of planning (lighthouse projects, major events, …) lead towards elementary changes of the dynamics and trends of development. Permanent change takes place – often as continuous, evolutionary development, but sometimes also with huge, dramatic turning points.< Less
Unleavened Bread By Robert Grant
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Unleavened Bread is a 1900 novel by American writer Robert Grant, and one of the best selling books of that year. It was also adapted into a Broadway play in 1901, directed by Leo... More > Ditrichstein. Robert Grant (1852–1940) was an American author and a jurist who participated in a review of the Sacco and Vanzetti trial a few weeks before their executions. In "Unleavened Bread," A businessman's selfish wife forces her way into upper society. A dramatization or Robert Grant's much talked-of novel, by Leo Ditrichstein, was remarkably well acted in the Savoy Theatre last night, and is likely to be a live theatrical topic for a few weeks at least.
