Greenwood Plantation in the Red Hills region of southwest Georgia includes a rare one-thousand-acre stand of old-growth longleaf pine woodlands, a remnant of an ecosystem that once covered close to ninety million acres across the Southeast. The Art of Managing Longleaf documents the sometimes controversial management system that not only has protected Greenwood's “Big Woods” but also has been practiced on a substantial acreage of the remnant longleaf pine woodlands in the Red Hills and other parts of the Coastal Plain. Often described as an art informed by science, the Stoddard-Neel Approach combines frequent prescribed burning, highly selective logging, a commitment to a particular woodland aesthetic, intimate knowledge of the ecosystem and its processes, and other strategies to manage the longleaf pine ecosystem in a sustainable way. The namesakes of this method are Herbert Stoddard (who developed it) and his colleague and successor, Leon Neel (who has refined it). In addition to presenting a detailed, illustrated outline of the Stoddard-Neel Approach, the book—based on an extensive oral history project undertaken by Paul S. Sutter and Albert G. Way, with Neel as its major subject—discusses Neel's deep familial and cultural roots in the Red Hills; his years of work with Stoddard; and the formation and early years of the Tall Timbers Research Station, which Stoddard and Neel helped found in the pinelands near Tallahassee, Florida, in 1958. In their introduction, environmental historians Sutter and Way provide an overview of the longleaf ecosystem's natural and human history, and in his afterword, forest ecologist Jerry F. Franklin affirms the value of the Stoddard-Neel Approach.

The Red Hills region of south Georgia and north Florida contains one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in North America, with longleaf pine trees that are up to four hundred years old and an understory of unparalleled plant life. At first glance, the longleaf woodlands at plantations like Greenwood, outside Thomasville, Georgia, seem undisturbed by market economics and human activity, but Albert G. Way contends that this environment was socially produced and that its story adds nuance to the broader narrative of American conservation. The Red Hills woodlands were thought of primarily as a healthful refuge for northern industrialists in the early twentieth century. When notable wildlife biologist Herbert Stoddard arrived in 1924, he began to recognize the area's ecological value. Stoddard was with the federal government, but he drew on local knowledge to craft his land management practices, to the point where a distinctly southern, agrarian form of ecological conservation emerged. This set of practices was in many respects progressive, particularly in its approach to fire management and species diversity, and much of it remains in effect today. Using Stoddard as a window into this unique conservation landscape, Conserving Southern Longleaf positions the Red Hills as a valuable center for research into and understanding of wildlife biology, fire ecology, and the environmental appreciation of a region once dubbed simply the “pine barrens.”

One of the unique features of the Georgia coast today is its thorough conservation. At first glance, it seems to be a place where nature reigns. But another distinctive feature of the coast is its deep and diverse human history. Indeed, few places that seem so natural hide so much human history. In Coastal Nature, Coastal Culture, editors Paul S. Sutter and Paul M. Pressly have brought together work from leading historians as well as environmental writers and activists that explores how nature and culture have coexisted and interacted across five millennia of human history along the Georgia coast, as well as how those interactions have shaped the coast as we know it today. The essays in this volume examine how successive communities of Native Americans, Spanish missionaries, British imperialists and settlers, planters, enslaved Africans, lumbermen, pulp and paper industrialists, vacationing northerners, Gullah-Geechee, nature writers, environmental activists, and many others developed distinctive relationships with the environment and produced well- defined coastal landscapes. Together these histories suggest that contemporary efforts to preserve and protect the Georgia coast must be as respectful of the rich and multifaceted history of the coast as they are of natural landscapes, many of them restored, that now define so much of the region.

Fundamental changes have occurred in all aspects of forestry over the last 50 years, including the underlying science, societal expectations of forests and their management, and the evolution of a globalized economy. This textbook is an effort to comprehensively integrate this new knowledge of forest ecosystems and human concerns and needs into a management philosophy that is applicable to the vast majority of global forest lands. Ecological forest management (EFM) is focused on policies and practices that maintain the integrity of forest ecosystems while achieving environmental, economic, and cultural goals of human societies. EFM uses natural ecological models as its basis contrasting it with modern production forestry, which is based on agronomic models and constrained by required return-on-investment. Sections of the book consider: 1) Basic concepts related to forest ecosystems and silviculture based on natural models; 2) Social and political foundations of forestry, including law, economics, and social acceptability; 3) Important current topics including wildfire, biological diversity, and climate change; and 4) Forest planning in an uncertain world from small privately-owned lands to large public ownerships. The book concludes with an overview of how EFM can contribute to resolving major 21st century issues in forestry, including sustaining forest dependent societies.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

"Gedankenkraft im Geschäfts- und Alltagsleben ist ein kleiner Ratgeber, der sich mit dem geistigen Potenzial eines jeden Menschen befasst und diesem durch praktische Übungen zur Steigerung verhelfen will." Aus dem Inhalt: Derjenige, welcher im täglichen Leben eine praktische Konzentrierung übt, schließt hierbei alle äußeren störenden Einflüsse aus und gibt seine beste Gedankenkraft dem vor ihm liegenden Tagewerke, und aus diesem Grunde ist seine Arbeit besser, als diejenige eines anderen, der Konzentrierung versäumt; der betreffende Arbeiter mag nun Tagelöhner, Baumeister, Schreiber, Kaufmann, Poet, Maler oder Bankier sein. Jeder Mensch, der etwas „geworden ist“, hat mehr oder weniger die Kunst der Konzentrierung entwickelt. Er ist sich dessen vielleicht nicht bewusst, das ist einerlei; aber er hat es getan. Und man kann noch weiter gehen und sagen: „Der Mensch, der die Kunst der Konzentrierung erweitert, wird an sein Ziel gelangen“. Versuch's und sei überzeugt! Übrigens können Sie dies selbst beobachten, das Resultat kommt von selbst. Wenn Sie Ihren Geist auf einen Gegenstand konzentrieren und den Gedanken daran festhalten, sind Sie geradezu gezwungen, Ihr bestes Werk auszuführen, und wenn Sie Ihr Bestes tun, wird der Lohn nicht ausbleiben; vorausgesetzt, Sie besitzen den Menschenverstand, der mit Ihnen zur Welt kam, und sind nicht etwa in den Glauben versetzt worden, Sie seien nur ein Wurm im Staube, oder ein menschlicher Waschlappen. Wenn Sie durch ein scheinbares Misslingen in Ihrem Berufe entmutigt werden, brauchen Sie nur das Konzentrieren lernen und üben. Spucken Sie in Ihre Hände, nehmen Sie einen neuen Anlauf, ein klein wenig energischer, und dann los; arbeiten Sie mit allen Ihren Kräften! Wenn Sie nur kräftig genug am Seil ziehen, am anderen Ende desselben werden Sie sicherlich etwas Gutes finden. Vergeuden Sie die Zeit nicht mit Klagen über „Unterdrückung durch das Kapital“ oder dergleichen. Wenn Sie ein Mann der Konzentrierung werden, fällt Ihnen das Kapital von selbst zu, nämlich Ihre Dienste werden in Anspruch genommen oder Ihre Waren gekauft. Inhalt: 1. Begrüßung. 2. Der Charakter der Macht. 3. Wie Gedankenkraft dem Menschen helfen kann. 4. Unmittelbare psychische Beeinflussung. 5. Ein wenig weltliche Weisheit 6. Die Gewalt der Augen. 7. Der magnetische Blick. 8. Die Willenskraft. 9. Direkte Volation. 10. Telepathische Volation. 11. Die Anziehungskraft des Gedankens. 12. Charakter durch geistige Kontrolle erziehen. 13. Die Kunst der Konzentrierung. 14. Die Ausführung der Konzentrierung. 15. Der Abschied.
