Taras Grescoe rides the rails all over the world and makes an elegant and impassioned case for the imminent end of car culture and the coming transportation revolution "I am proud to call myself a straphanger," writes Taras Grescoe. The perception of public transportation in America is often unflattering—a squalid last resort for those with one too many drunk-driving charges, too poor to afford insurance, or too decrepit to get behind the wheel of a car. Indeed, a century of auto-centric culture and city planning has left most of the country with public transportation that is underfunded, ill maintained, and ill conceived. But as the demand for petroleum is fast outpacing the world's supply, a revolution in transportation is under way. Grescoe explores the ascendance of the straphangers—the growing number of people who rely on public transportation to go about the business of their daily lives. On a journey that takes him around the world—from New York to Moscow, Paris, Copenhagen, Tokyo, Bogotá, Phoenix, Portland, Vancouver, and Philadelphia—Grescoe profiles public transportation here and abroad, highlighting the people and ideas that may help undo the damage that car-centric planning has done to our cities and create convenient, affordable, and sustainable urban transportation—and better city living—for all.

Since publication of the groundbreaking Encyclopedia of Housing in 1998, many issues have assumed special prominence within this field and, indeed, within the global economy. For instance, the global economic meltdown was spurred in large part by the worst subprime mortgage crisis we’ve seen in our history. On a more positive note, the sustainability movement and “green” development has picked up considerable steam and, given the priorities and initiatives of the current U.S. administration, this will only grow in importance, and increased attention has been given in recent years to the topic of indoor air quality. Within the past decade, as well, the Baby Boom Generation began its march into retirement and senior citizenship, which will have increasingly broad implications for retirement communities and housing, assisted living facilities, aging in place, livable communities, universal design, and the like. Finally, within the last twelve years an emerging generation of young scholars has been making significant contributions to the field. For all these reasons and more, we are pleased to present a significantly updated and expanded Second Edition of The Encyclopedia of Housing.

Die Jagd hat begonnen Sie nennen ihn den October Boy. Jedes Jahr zu Halloween erwacht er in einem Feld vor der Stadt zum Leben und setzt damit das immer wiederkehrende, gnadenlose Ritual in Gang: Die jungen Männer des Ortes lauern darauf, die blutrünstige Kreatur zu jagen und zur Strecke zu bringen, bevor sie selbst getötet werden. Auch Pete McCormick macht mit bei der Jagd. Dem Sieger und dessen Familie winkt genug Geld für einen Neuanfang fern der öden Heimat. Dafür ist Pete bereit, alles zu riskieren, sogar sein Leben. Doch bevor die Nacht zu Ende geht, muss er der grauenhaften Wahrheit hinter dem Ritual ins Gesicht sehen ... «Ein herausragendes neues Talent.» (Stephen King)

In einer Videothek in einer Kleinstadt inmitten Iowas tauchen seltsame und unheimliche Filmschnipsel auf den Leihkassetten auf. Dunkle und grobkörnige Szenen, die in einer Scheune aufgenommen wurden. Sie dauern nur ein paar Minuten und zeigen möglicherweise S/M-Spiele, vielleicht sogar eine Folterung. Der Videotheksmitarbeiter Jeremy will nichts mit der Sache zu tun haben, doch als die Dorflehrerin Stephanie die Scheune in den Videos wiedererkennt, muss er handeln. Die Suche nach der Wahrheit hinter den Videos führt Jeremy und Stephanie in die Vergangenheit.
