From humble origins as a Sri Lankan raised on a small rubber estate in war-ravaged Malaysia, Maha Sinnathamby migrated to Australia some 40 years ago and has faced countless obstacles and many failures. Yet through fierce determination, unrelenting drive, sheer hard work, and extraordinary vision, he has an enduring legacy of community-building achievements to his name and was listed within BRW’s 50 Most Wealthy Australians in 2011. In 1992 Maha’s private, under-capitalised firm purchased 2,860 hectares of inhospitable, inaccessible land in an economically depressed region of Queensland, Australia. Two decades later, despite innumerable setbacks, Springfield has emerged as Australia’s largest privately-owned, master-planned city; and is a striking example of what’s possible when you design a city exclusively around the needs of the community. Stop Not Till the Goal is Reached explores the 10 principles for fearless success that have guided Maha throughout his life. It explains the principles through Maha’s personal journey and provides other examples of astonishing achievements from around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Price-Lewis.

In their book Drive Nacho Drive, Brad and Sheena Van Orden traded the American Dream for the open road, and set off in their temperamental 1984 VW van named ´´Nacho.´´ After 13 months of humorous and sometimes demoralizing misadventures along the Pan-American Highway, our intrepid subjects eventually arrived at the southernmost town in the world in Tierra del Fuego. This is where 927 Days of Summer picks up the trail. After shipping Nacho from Argentina to Malaysia on a container ship, Brad and Sheena resume their journey, this time with the ambitious goal of driving all the way around the world. When they roll out of the shipping container onto Malaysian soil, their odometer turns over to 300,000 miles. Is Nacho really up for the brutal journey ahead? This hilarious and harrowing tale cuts through the sweltering jungles of Southeast Asia to the buzzing hornet´s nest of India, from the remote Nepalese Himalayas to the stony hills of Anatolia, on to the Sahara Desert of Africa, through Europe and beyond. Whether dodging rickshaws on crater-filled roads, defying Maoist rebels on cliff-hanging Himalayan tracks, getting hopelessly stuck in the desert on the Pakistani border, or becoming the subjects of an international missing persons´ case in the remote mountains of Laos, there is never a dull moment in 927 Days of Summer. Come along as a diverse cast of characters guides our determined travelers through a world of unfolding landscapes and cultures on the road trip to end all road trips, and then ask yourself: can you really just go home, unpack, and eat a sandwich? 1.

Asia´s Cauldron: The South China Sea and the En...

Over the last decade, the center of world power has been quietly shifting from Europe to Asia. With oil reserves of several billion barrels, an estimated 900 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and several centuries´ worth of competing territorial claims, the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential conflict. The underreported military buildup in the area where the Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable future. In Asia´s Cauldron, Robert D. Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of the nations surrounding the South China Sea, the conflicts brewing in the region at the dawn of the 21st century, and their implications for global peace and stability. To understand the future of conflict in East Asia, Kaplan argues, one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and its people. Part travelogue, part geopolitical primer, Asia´s Cauldron takes us on a journey through the region´s boom cities and ramshackle slums: From Vietnam, where the superfueled capitalism of the erstwhile colonial capital, Saigon, inspires the geostrategic pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi, to Malaysia, where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and Western-style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate postmodern society; and from Singapore, whose ´´benevolent autocracy´´ helped foster an economic miracle, to the Philippines, where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and crime. At a time when every day´s news seems to contain some new story - large or small - that directly relates to conflicts over the South China Sea, Asia´s Cauldron is an indispensable guide to a corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to come. 1.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FINANCIAL TIMES From Robert D. Kaplan, named one of the world´s Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine, comes a penetrating look at the volatile region that will dominate the future of geopolitical conflict. Over the last decade, the center of world power has been quietly shifting from Europe to Asia. With oil reserves of several billion barrels, an estimated nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and several centuries´ worth of competing territorial claims, the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential conflict. The underreported military buildup in the area where the Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable future. In Asia´s Cauldron, Robert D. Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of the nations surrounding the South China Sea, the conflicts brewing in the region at the dawn of the twenty-first century, and their implications for global peace and stability. One of the world´s most perceptive foreign policy experts, Kaplan interprets America´s interests in Asia in the context of an increasingly assertive China. He explains how the region´s unique geography fosters the growth of navies but also impedes aggression. And he draws a striking parallel between China´s quest for hegemony in the South China Sea and the United States´ imperial adventure in the Caribbean more than a century ago. To understand the future of conflict in East Asia, Kaplan argues, one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and its people. Part travelogue, part geopolitical primer, Asia´s Cauldron takes us on a journey through the region´s boom cities and ramshackle slums: from Vietnam, where the superfueled capitalism of the erstwhile colonial capital, Saigon, inspires the geostrategic pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi, to Malaysia, where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and Western-style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate postmodern society; and from Singapore, whose ´´benevolent autocracy´´ helped foster an economic miracle, to the Philippines, where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and crime. At a time when every day´s news seems to contain some new story-large or small-that directly relates to conflicts over the South China Sea, Asia´s Cauldron is an indispensable guide to a corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to come. Praise for Asia´s Cauldron ´´Asia´s Cauldron is a short book with a powerful thesis, and it stands out for its clarity and good sense. . . . If you are doing business in China, traveling in Southeast Asia or just obsessing about geopolitics, you will want to read it.´´-The New York Times Book Review ´´Kaplan has established himself as one of our most consequential geopolitical thinkers. . . . [Asia´s Cauldron] is part treatise on geopolitics, part travel narrative. Indeed, he writes in the tradition of the great travel writers.´´-The Weekly Standard ´´Kaplan´s fascinating book is a welcome challenge to the pessimists who see only trouble in China´s rise and the hawks who view it as malign.´´-The Economist ´´Muscular, deeply knowledgeable . . . Kaplan is an ultra-realist [who] takes a non-moralistic stance on questions of power and diplomacy.´´-Financial Times

Making Cities Resilient (eBook, PDF)
€ 116.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the world has transformed, so have cities. Today, cities are home to 54 percent of the world?s population, and by the middle of this century that figure will likely rise to 66 percent. According to the United Nations (UN) Habitat I (1972), Habitat II (1996) and Habitat III (2016) summits, cities are facing many serious challenges, including growing inequality, security concerns and the worsening impacts of climate change. Uncontrolled urbanization has led to many problems (haphazard growth of areas, emergence of slums, inadequate water and power supply, poor sanitation, shortage of transport and other civic amenities, shrinking green spaces, pollution, crime, and urban disaster risks such as fire, flood, road and industrial accidents, etc.). Worldwide, communities at the international, national and local level are continuously working to improve human habitats. In order to make our planet more sustainable, the UN has moved from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Among the latter, the aim of SDG 11 is to ??make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.? In light of these challenges, various terms have emerged to help understand urban issues. Visualizing the problem, the United Nations program ?Making Cities Resilient? is focused on mitigating the disaster risk in urban areas. This book analyzes terms such as: sustainable, resilient, livable, inclusive, smart and world class city, which have emerged in the process of combating urban challenges in today?s world. The book addresses emerging concepts for cities, challenges and potentials, urban environments, health and planning/policies. Covering 14 large cities in India, as well as case studies from Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Poland and Sweden, it provides a regional dimension to and micro-level perspective on urban issues.
