The Green Light ('Le Feu Vert') offers an original and profound exploration of the roots of environmental philosophy and the Anthropocene. Bernard Charbonneau situates the wellspring of the ecological movement in the dialectics of Nature and Freedom, and their needful but uneasy joining against the totalizing system of technological society that threatens them both. Using this paradoxical tension as a yardstick, he probes the ways in which concepts of Nature have developed as industrialization became second nature and jeopardized the original, taken for granted until its advent. This allows Charbonneau to explain how movements and policies claiming to deal with this issue have gone wrong. A spirited critique of how the environmental movement has taken shape in relation to philosophy, politics, theology and contemporary culture, this book written in 1980 is representative of an oft-overlooked strand of French environmentalist thought, as a look back on its first decade in the public eye by a man who had originated political ecology half a century earlier. Charbonneau can be said to have prepared the way for many current concerns within environmental thought: the tension between liberalism and ecologism in green political theory; the wider question of the compatibility of ecological imperatives with supposedly foundational freedoms under capitalism; the discussions over how to balance existing democratic structures with environmental goals; the tensions between radical and reformist strategies within green movements; the controversy over the core values of ecological politics in a world transformed by climate change and peak everything; and the proper attitude of environmental movements to institutional science. This ground-breaking work should be front and centre of the debates that he anticipated, while giving a timely perspective on the interconnected questions of nature and human freedom. This first English translation of a work by Bernard Charbonneau provides not only a vivid account of environmental philosophy, but an introduction to this important author's thought.

Die schlimmste Dürre seit Jahrzehnten lastet wie heißes Blei auf dem ländlichen Städtchen Kiewarra mitten im Nirgendwo. Das Vieh der Farmer stirbt, die Menschen fürchten um ihre Existenz. Als Luke Hadler, seine Frau und ihr Sohn Billy erschossen aufgefunden werden, glauben alle, dass der Farmer durchgedreht ist und erweiterten Suizid begangen hat. Aber Sergeant Raco hat seine Zweifel. Aaron Falk kehrt nach zwanzig Jahren zum ersten Mal nach Kiewarra zurück - zur Beerdigung seines Jugendfreundes Luke. Bald brechen alte Wunden wieder auf; das Misstrauen wirft seine langen Schatten auf die Kleinstadt. Und in der Hitze steigt der Druck immer mehr ... Ein beklemmender Thriller um Heimat, Loyalität und Vergebung. «The Dry katapultiert Jane Harper sofort in die Elite der Thrillerautoren. Phantastische Charaktere, ein einzigartiges und unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, ein atemberaubender Plot. Dieses Buch hat einfach alles.» (John Lescroart) «Eines der beeindruckendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe. Ich habe die glühende Hitze Australiens am eigenen Leib gespürt. Jedes einzelne Wort sitzt perfekt. Die Geschichte baut sich wie eine riesige Welle auf, bis sie schließlich auf die Erde kracht und alles auslöscht, was man vorher über diese fesselnde Geschichte gedacht hat.

Plants utilize light not only for photosynthesis but also as environmental signals. They are capable of perceiving wavelength, intensity, direction, duration, and other attributes of light to perform appropriate physiological and developmental changes. This volume presents overviews of and the latest findings in many of the interconnected aspects of plant photomorphogenesis, including photoreceptors (phytochromes, cryptochromes, and phototropins), signal transduction, photoperiodism, and circadian rhythms, in 42 chapters. Also included, is a prologue by Prof. Masaki Furuya that gives an overview of the historical background. With contributions from preeminent researchers in specific subjects from around the world, this book will be a valuable source for a range of scientists from undergraduate to professional levels.

It is commonly assumed that if the Sun suddenly turned into a black hole, it would suck Earth and the rest of the planets into oblivion. Yet, as prominent author and astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett points out, black holes don't suck. With that simple idea in mind, Bennett begins an entertaining introduction to Einstein's theories of relativity, describing the amazing phenomena readers would actually experience if they took a trip to a black hole. The theory of relativity reveals the speed of light as the cosmic speed limit, the mind-bending ideas of time dilation and curvature of spacetime, and what may be the most famous equation in history: E = mc2. Indeed, the theory of relativity shapes much of our modern understanding of the universe. It is not "just a theory"—every major prediction of relativity has been tested to exquisite precision, and its practical applications include the Global Positioning System (GPS). Amply illustrated and written in clear, accessible prose, Bennett's book proves anyone can grasp the basics of Einstein's ideas. His intuitive, nonmathematical approach gives a wide audience its first real taste of how relativity works and why it is so important to science and the way we view ourselves as human beings.

In recent years there has been a host of new advances in our understanding of how we see. From molecular genetics come details of the photopigments and the molecular causes of disorders like colour blindness. In-depth analysis has shown how a cell converts light into a neural signal using the photopigments. Traditional techniques of microelectrode recording along with new techniques of functional imaging - such as PET scans - have made it possible to understand how visual information is processed in the brain. This processing results in the single coherent perception of the world we see in our mind s eye . An Introduction to the Visual System provides a concise, but detailed, overview of this field. It is clearly written, and each chapter ends with a helpful key points section. It is ideal for anyone studying visual perception, from the second year of an undergraduate course onwards.
