Urban Agriculture Europe
Is it possible to turn inner-city horticulture into urban farming that provides solutions for the food requirements of a constantly growing world population and works at the same time as a viable business model?'Urban Agriculture Europe' is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary publication that addresses urban agriculture in Europe. Apart from well-known examples of food gardening in the midst of metropolises, it also studies activities in smaller towns, agriculture on the urban periphery, as well as experiences in eastern and southern Europe. The contributions analyze various facets of urban agriculture, from economic, spatial, and ecological aspects to questions of business chances, stakeholders’ roles, and policy recommendations. Case studies from Barcelona, Milan, Sofia, Warsaw, Dublin, Lausanne, and Aachen provide a comparative study of European practice. Stakeholder’s statements and a glossary of key words supplement the volume.

History s Locomotives
This masterful comparative history traces the West’s revolutionary tradition and its culmination in the Communist revolutions of the twentieth century. Unique in breadth and scope, History’s Locomotives offers a new interpretation of the origins and history of socialism as well as the meanings of the Russian Revolution, the rise of the Soviet regime, and the ultimate collapse of the Soviet Union. History’s Locomotives is the masterwork of an esteemed historian in whom a fine sense of historical particularity never interfered with the ability to see the large picture. Martin Malia explores religious conflicts in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Europe, the revolutions in England, American, and France, and the twentieth-century Russian explosions into revolution. He concludes that twentieth-century revolutions have deep roots in European history and that revolutionary thought and action underwent a process of radicalization from one great revolution to the next. Malia offers an original view of the phenomenon of revolution and a fascinating assessment of its power as a driving force in history.

The fundamental question uniting the contributions to this volume is: what exactly is populism? This is certainly not a new question, as a large amount of literature has focused on this topic for more than half a century. As little conceptual consensus has been reached so far, this book aims to reduce the level of abstraction. To this end, it approaches the populist phenomenon from a broader theoretical and empirical perspective, making reference to its developments on several continents. The book is divided into two parts: the first is theoretical and discusses various perspectives on populism, while the second is empirical and emphasises the diversity of the forms populism has embraced throughout the world. Without aiming to solve old dilemmas, to cover all the existing forms of populism, or to outline unequivocal conclusions, the contributions to this book fulfil a twofold task. On the one hand, they help to clarify theoretically a concept that is difficult to grasp and use. On the other hand, by way of reflecting these difficulties, they present several forms of populism worldwide. Their main purpose is to highlight the differences between the continents. Each of the chapters in the second section successfully accomplishes this, providing an overview that is useful both in analysing populism and in identifying the populist elements in national and international political actions or discourses.
