Ban Ki-Moon (Modern World Leaders)
As a child in South Korea, Ban Ki-moon wrote a letter to the U.N. secretary-general regarding the Hungarian uprising against Russia. A few years later in the United States, he met President John F. Kennedy. From then on, Ban desired to work for peace, an aspiration that led him to become South Korea's foreign minister in 2004, at a time when tensions between North Korea and its neighbors were heated. Two years later, he ascended to the position of U.N. secretary-general. Ban has worked to show the benefits of diplomatic approaches in solving conflict, and has called for the world's citizens to change their habits to curb global warming. To restore people's trust in the battered organization, he has set standards for other U.N. staff. In "Ban Ki-moon", read how his further success in these areas will attempt to keep the U.N. relevant in an increasingly complex world.

Future Park: Imagining Tomorrow's Urban Parks by Amalie Wright
2013 | ISBN: 0643100334 | English | 360 pages | PDF | 68 MB

Future Park: Imagining Tomorrow’s Urban Parks
Future Park invites Australian policy-makers and built environment professionals to consider the future of parks in our cities. It describes the economic, social and environmental benefits of urban parks, and then outlines the threats and challenges facing cities and communities in an age when more than half the world’s population are urban dwellers. This book introduces the need to embrace new public park thinking to ensure that benefits continue to be realized.

The first public parks were created on urban "greenfields". Once these designated sites had been used, cities looked towards post-industrial sites, and built parks in places that had suffered from environmental degradation, neglect, abandonment and conflict. With finite stocks of urban post-industrial land now also approaching exhaustion, more ways of making parks are required to create inclusive, accessible and resilient urban places. Future Park presents recent proposals and projects that coalesce around four broad themes – linkages, obsolescences, co-locations and installations – responding to contemporary urban paradoxes, and ensuring parks continue to play a vital role in the lives of our cities.

KEY FEATURES
– Global lessons for park design in Australia
– Ideas-based book with practical application
– Includes spectacular images of public spaces throughout the world
– Imaginative and resourceful responses to real challenges
– Features global lessons with spectacular images from around the world, including, Germany, Korea and the USA.

Building Telecom Markets: Evolution of Governance in the Korean Mobile Telecommunication Market
The mobile telecommunication industry has been one of the fastest growing industries in the global economy since the late 1990s. As the first country to offer commercial Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) cellular service in the world, Korea was able to jump right into the digital mobile markets, enhancing its status as a leading manufacturer of mobile equipment. While the growth of the telecom industry occurred with the emergence of worldwide market-oriented regulatory reform and liberalization in telecommunications, the state-market relationship in Korea evolved from state monopoly toward "centralized governance" and later toward "flexible governance," which is substantially different from "liberal governance" of the US. This book examines the uniqueness of Korean regulatory reforms of the mobile telecommunication sector, and argues that the market-oriented regulatory reform and liberalization should be explained by theoretic foundations of governance, focusing on the interactions among the state, the private sector and international political economic environment. It can contribute to the empirical and theoretical debates in academics and policymakers who are interested in the policymaking of states, political economy and development in the era of liberalization.
