    Author: OLSON MARTIN ET AL

    What time is it? "Adventure Time"(TM) Explore the magical world of Ooo with Jake the dog and Finn the human, along with the Ice King, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline the Vampire Queen, and all your favorite "Adventure Time" characters, in this first official guide to Cartoon Network's hit animated series. Written and compiled by the Lord of Evil himself, "The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia" matches the playful, subversive tone of the series, detailing everything anyone will ever need to know about the postapocalyptic land of Ooo and its inhabitants--secret lore and spells, fun places you should visit and places where you will probably die, whom to marry and whom not to marry, how to make friends and how to destroy your enemies--plus hand-written marginalia by Finn, Jake, and Marceline. An indispensable companion to the show, this side-splittingly funny love letter to "Adventure Time" is sure to appeal to fans of all ages. Heck yeah From the Back Cover: Written by the Lord of Evil Himself, Hunson Abadeer (a.k.a. Marceline the Vampire Queen's dad), to instruct and confound the demonic citizenry of the Nightosphere, The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia is perhaps the most dangerous book in history. Although seemingly a guidebook to the Land of Ooo and its postapocalyptic inhabitants, it is in fact an amusing nightmare of literary pitfalls, bombastic brain-boggles, and ancient texts designed to drive the reader mad. Complete with secret lore and wizard spells, fun places you should visit and places where you will probably die, advice on whom to marry and whom not to marry, and how to make friends and destroy your enemies, this volume includes hand-written marginalia by Finn, Jake, and Marceline. Arguably the greatest encyclopaedia ever written since the beginning of the cosmos, it is also an indispensable companion to humans and demons who know what time it is: "Adventure Time " Praise for" The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia: " "Even if you're an adult "Adventure Time" fan, the book will make you feel like you're 10 again." --"USA Today"'s "Daily Candy" blog "The brand-new "Adventure Time Encyclopaedia" will tell viewers everything they need to know about the post-apocalyptic magical land and its inhabitants." --"Entertainment Weekly"'s "Family Room" blog "The . . .

    Title: Around the World: the Atlas for Today
    Author: LOSOWSKY A; EHMANN S & KLANTEN R

    This modern atlas presents our world in striking images and clear texts. The book is not just for graphic designers, but also for anyone who is curious about how we live today. Looking through an atlas has always been a fascinating way to explore the world. Around the World is a contemporary evolution of an atlas tailored to our information age that takes its readers around the globe in 288 pages. In this book, compelling information graphics illustrate how natural and manmade phenomena impact our lives. They take us on an entertaining and informative journey that gives us a deeper understanding not only of our planet's geography, but also of the key local and global developments of the twenty-first century. Alongside classic facts about nature, history, population, culture, and politics, Around the World's eye-catching information graphics clearly explain complex processes such as global trade and evolving demographics. The book gives added insight into our modern world through its visual exploration of topics such as the changing speed of travel. Around the World alternates between providing information on general subjects such as families, languages, life expectancies, natural disasters, eating habits, economies, prosperity gaps, or religions, and providing more specific details about hobbies, coffee consumption, overfishing, soccer, and internet providers. The book also depicts events that have left indelible marks on our collective conscience including September 11, the Olympic Games, Japan's Fukushima disaster, and the sinking of the Titanic. Like any atlas, Around the World cannot claim to be a complete record. Rather, it serves as a rich cornucopia of information about local peculiarities of global relevance that bring home the little differences --as well as the astoundingly large similarities--among the citizens of the world. Enthralling, attractive, and informative, Around the World's international collection of illustrations and information graphics is for anyone who is curious about our planet and the people who live on it.

    ISBN: 9783319524931
    Title: Art & Craft of Policy Advising: A Practical Guide
    Author: BROMELL DAVID


    This book offers a practical guide for new policy advisors and their managers, grounded in the author’s extensive experience as a senior policy practitioner in central and local government.

    Effective policy advising does not proceed in ‘cycles’ or neatly ordered ‘stages’ and ‘steps’, but is first and foremost a relationship built on careful listening, knowing one’s place in the constitutional scheme of things, becoming useful and winning the confidence of decision makers.

    The author introduces readers to a public value approach to policy advising that uses collective thinking to address complex policy problems; evidence-informed policy analysis that also factors in emotions and values; and the practice of ‘gifting and gaining’ (rather than ‘trade-offs’) in collaborative governing for the long term. Theory is balanced with practical illustration and processes, tools and techniques, helping readers master the art of communicating what decision-makers need to hear, as well as what they want to hear.

    Title: Atlas Maior of 1665
    Author: BLAEU JOAN

    World class: The finest atlas ever publishedSuperlatives tend to fail in face of Joan Blaeu s Atlas Maior, one of the most extravagant feats in the history of mapmaking. The original Latin edition, completed in 1665, was the largest and most expensive book to be published during the 17th century. Its 594 maps across 11 volumes spanned Arctica, Asia, Europe, and America. Its scale and ambition occupies such an important place in Dutch history that it is included in the Canon of Dutch History, an official survey of 50 individuals, creations, or events that chart the historical development of the Netherlands.TASCHEN s meticulous reprint brings this luxurious Baroque wonder into the hands of modern readers. In an age of digitized cartography and global connectivity, it celebrates the steadfast beauty of quality print and restores the wonder of an exploratory age, in which Blaeu s native Amsterdam was a center of international trade and discovery.True to TASCHEN s optimum reproduction standards, the edition derives from the Austrian National Library s complete colored and gold-heightened copy of Atlas Maior, assuring the finest detail and quality. University of Amsterdam s Peter van der Krogt introduces the historical and cultural significance of the atlas while providing detailed descriptions for individual maps, revealing the full scale and ambition of Blaeu s masterwork. As much an artwork as a cartographical adventure, the book comes with a slipcase that converts neatly into a display bookstand.Text in English, French, and German"

    Title: Atlas of Cities
    Author: KNOX PAUL

    More than half the world's population lives in cities, and that proportion is expected to rise to three-quarters by 2050. Urbanization is a global phenomenon, but the way cities are developing, the experience of city life, and the prospects for the future of cities vary widely from region to region. The "Atlas of Cities" presents a unique taxonomy of cities that looks at different aspects of their physical, economic, social, and political structures; their interactions with each other and with their hinterlands; the challenges and opportunities they present; and where cities might be going in the future.

    Each chapter explores a particular type of city--from the foundational cities of Greece and Rome and the networked cities of the Hanseatic League, through the nineteenth-century modernization of Paris and the industrialization of Manchester, to the green and "smart" cities of today. Expert contributors explore how the development of these cities reflects one or more of the common themes of urban development: the mobilizing function (transport, communication, and infrastructure); the generative function (innovation and technology); the decision-making capacity (governance, economics, and institutions); and the transformative capacity (society, lifestyle, and culture).

    Using stunning info-graphics, maps, charts, tables, and photographs, the "Atlas of Cities" is a comprehensive overview of the patterns of production, consumption, generation, and decay of the twenty-first century's defining form.Presents a one-of-a-kind taxonomy of cities that looks at their origins, development, and future prospectsFeatures core case studies of particular types of cities, from the foundational cities of Greece and Rome to the "smart" cities of todayExplores common themes of urban development, from transport and communication to lifestyle and cultureIncludes stunning info-graphics, maps, charts, tables, and photos

    Author: MIDDLETON NICK

    Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton takes us on a magical tour of countries that, lacking diplomatic recognition or UN membership, inhabit a world of shifting borders, visionary leaders and forgotten peoples.Most of us think we know what a country is, but in truth the concept is rather slippery. From Catalonia to the Crimea, and from Africa's last colony to the European republic that enjoyed just a solitary day of independence, the places in this book may lie on the margins of legitimacy, but all can be visited in the real world.Beautifully illustrated by fifty regional maps, each shadowy country is literally cut out of the page of this book. Alongside stories, facts and figures, this Atlas brings to life a dreamlike world of nations that exist only in the minds of the people who live there.

    Title: Brewers Dict of Phrase & Fable 19 Ed
    Author: DENT SUSIE

    Why doesn't God go away? God: All That Matters, by philosopher Mark Vernon,suggests that there is something odd about the way God is discussed today. It is often as if the divine were being examined in a test tube, in a search for empirical and objective confirmation of his/her existence. Yet, for people of faith, the experience of God is nothing if not subjectively real; they know God, in-so-far as they do, in their lives.

    Vernon therefore looks to move the argument on from the debates between atheist and religious fundamentalists, to look at how people through time have looked for, experienced, and explained God - in suffering, in nature, in morality, in peak experiences, in goodness, in the future and in love.

    This accessible and concise book will appeal to both students and general readers, giving a fascinating introduction to a wide range of perspectives on God.

    Title: Collaborative Leadership Fieldbook
    Author: CHRISLIP DAVID D

    When the landmark book Collaborative Leadership was first published in 1994, it described the premise, principles, and leadership characteristics of successful collaboration. The book outlined an innovative way of building partnerships to solve the civic problems too big for anyone to solve alone as well as a new type of leadership that brings together diverse stakeholders to solve a community′s problems. While that book provides a much-needed framework for working together, The Collaborative Leadership Fieldbook offers nonprofit practitioners, community leaders, and public officials a practical, hands-on resource. It presents the tools needed for applying the lessons learned, powerful approaches that get results, and guidance for solving complex community problems. In clear and concise terms, the Fieldbook
    ∗ Presents a wide range of tools and concepts that can be readily applied
    ∗ Provides a comprehensive guide to collaboration from conception to implementation
    ∗ Describes how to establish effective civic leadership development programs to support collaborative efforts
    ∗ Contains stories and examples that clearly illustrate the book′s concepts and tools
    ∗ Helps readers find-quickly and easily-what they need for their specific situations
