Today, when one thinks of the border separating the United States from Mexico, what comes to mind is a war zone - with violent, poverty-ridden towns, cities, and maquiladoras on one side and an increasingly militarized network of barriers and surveillance systems on the other. But as theacclaimed urbanist and geographer Michael Dear reveals in this fascinating book, it was not always this way. In fact, from the end of the Mexican-American War until the late twentieth century, the border was a very porous and loosely regulated region.In this sweeping account of life within the United States-Mexican border zone, Dear traces the border's long history of cultural interaction, beginning with the numerous Mesoamerican tribes of the region. But, as Dear warns in his bracing study, this vibrant zone of cultural and social amalgamationis endangered both by highly restrictive American policies and the violence along Mexico's side of the border. Through a series of evocative portraits of contemporary border communities, he shows that a "third nation," occupied by both Americans and Mexicans, still exists, and the potential forcultivating it remains. Combining a broad historical perspective and a commanding overview of present-day problems, Why Walls Won't Work is a major intellectual intervention into one of the most hotly contested political issues of our time.

This inspiring book is a visual feast of global event designs which is a must for brand innovators and identity wizards. Happenings are very much still happening – more than enough reason to launch a sequel to our first event-themed title. In the age of social media, the event is becoming a mass-marketing campaign that targets a global audience. And its reach is far greater if it’s both memorable and photogenic. Happening 2 covers over 60 stunning spectacles – from fashion shows to festivals and exhibitions to exclusive product launches – that leave lasting impressions. Events offer designers the perfect testing ground; they are ideal opportunities to experiment with spatial perception and sensory experiences. Happening 2 travels the globe to cover memorable moments by the likes of Bureau Betak, Bompas & Parr, MVRDV, Snarkitecture and teamLab, revealing how the designers translated their concepts from page to platform. The event industry monumentalises the fleeting, and Happening 2 does the same.

Kant’s Transcendental Deduction of the Categories: Unity, Representation, and Apperception is a distinctively new reading of the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories in the Critique of Pure Reason. Lawrence J. Kaye has discovered a number of previously overlooked arguments and explanations, one of the most significant being an argument that demonstrates that the use of concepts requires the necessary unity of consciousness. He also provides a detailed investigation of Kant’s account of representation in the first edition of the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories and shows how it can be understood as a unique type of functional role view. This view of representation leads to a new understanding of Kant’s blend of realism and idealism. Kant’s notion of transcendental apperception (a priori self-awareness) is also carefully explained. Kaye shows that there is an extremely tight inter-relation between the unity of consciousness, representation, and apperception that constitutes a well-supported framework, one that offers a surprisingly strong set of replies to Hume’s skeptical challenges. He applies this framework to produce a coherent and detailed explanation of the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories, offering a thorough, paragraph-by-paragraph examination of the text in both editions. This work should not only be of interest to Kant scholars, but also to any philosophers and cognitive scientists who are invested in any of the following topics: the unity and structure of consciousness, concepts, mental representation, self-awareness, and realism and idealism.

I. The importance of legal questions related to the sea is obvious to everyone. It is hardly surprising that the subjects that make up international current events illustrate the leading role played by maritime affairs. Indeed, it is no coincidence that three quarters of the earth's surface is covered by oceans. Territorial seas, exclusive economic zones, exploitation of the seabed, fishing, transport, insurance, collision, and pollution raise many unresolved questions. On the other hand, the contrast of this importance with the modest attention that existing periodical publications merit must be underscored. Without undervaluing these publications, there has been a need for some time to create a vehicle of common expression, based on three central tenets: interdisciplinary framework, tendency towards uniform law, and both a theoretical and practical approach. a. A framework of interdisciplinary nature seems to be relevant as it is desirable to overcome the artificial separation between public and private law.
