The contributors argue that local society in the Delta was integrated into the Chinese state through a series of changes that involved constant redefinition of lineages, territories, and ethnic identities. The emergence of lineages in the Ming and Qing dynasties, the deployment of deities in local alliances, and the shrewd use of ethnic labels provided terms for a discourse that reified the criteria for membership in Chinese local society. The ideology produced by these developments continued to serve as the norm for the legitimation of power in local society through the Republican period

"My name is Mona Tempus. People of your world know me as Mother Nature." So begins the funny, fanciful, and often times frightening dialogue between a strange, beautiful woman and a skeptical, bewildered man. What evolves is a chronicle of the environmental devastation that has befallen our planet. Mother Nature (Mona), with help from her crew-an unforgettable cast of characters-relates her insights into the dangers we face in the forms of rainforest destruction, air and water pollution, land degradation, global warming, species extinction, and over-population. Blending the latest scientific findings with a history of the Earth's evolution from the Big Bang to the present day, and drawing on such other disciplines as sociology, anthropology, and religion, Mona offers her unique perspective on how we landed in this predicament. Reminding us that we can't rely on Governments or Big Business to save us, she issues a call to action for the peoples of Earth to rescue their planet...and gives us a ray of hope in the myriad of solutions she proposes. This original, compelling book is a must-read for anyone who cares about preserving Mother Earth both for their own and for future generations.

This book presents the findings of a Department for International Development (DFID) funded project. It has been written for policy-makers and professional staff of urban government, development agencies and non-government organizations in low-income countries. The book aims to help improve the poor practices of municipal solid waste management that prevail in many low-income countries - a subject that has received comparatively little attention to other aspects of infrastructure such as water supply and transport. It is a complex subject embracing waste collection, transfer, haulage and disposal and its impacts are wide, including for example, effects on environmental health, municipal finance and management, waste reuse, and informal sector employment.

Down to Earth presents the first comprehensive overview of the geopolitical maneuvers, financial investments, technological innovations, and ideological struggles that take place behind the scenes of the satellite industry. Satellite projects that have not received extensive coverage—microsatellites in China, WorldSpace in South Africa, SiriusXM, the failures of USA 193 and Cosmos 954, and Iridium—are explored. This collection takes readers on a voyage through a truly global industry, from the sites where satellites are launched to the corporate clean rooms where they are designed, and along the orbits and paths that satellites traverse. Combining a practical introduction to the mechanics of the satellite industry, a history of how its practices and technologies have evolved, and a sophisticated theoretical analysis of satellite cultures, Down to Earth opens up a new space for global media studies.
