Becoming East German : socialist structures and sensibilities after Hitler ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For roughly the first decade after the demise of the GDR, professional and popular interpretations of East German history concentrated primarily on forms of power and repression, as well as on dissent and resistance to communist rule. Socio-cultural approaches have increasingly shown that a single-minded emphasis on repression and coercion fails to address a number of important historical issues, including those related to the subjective experiences of those who lived under communist regimes. With that in mind, the essays in this volume explore significant physical and psychological aspects ...
Die rätselhafte Stabilität der DDR : Arbeit und Alltag im sozialistischen Deutschland by Andrew I Port ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hauptbeschreibung Die Frage, was zum Zusammenbruch der DDR führte, ist noch immer ein brisantes Thema. Dabei scheint man mitunter zu vergessen, dass der sozialistische deutsche Teilstaat immerhin vier Jahrzehnte lang existierte - länger als die Weimarer Republik und das Dritte Reich zusammen. So gesehen war die DDR ein rätselhaft stabiler Staat, dessen Bestand dringend einer Erklärung bedarf. In seiner Studie präsentiert der amerikanische Historiker Andrew Port eine originelle Lösung für dieses Rätsel: Weder Repressionen und die berühmt-berüchtigte Stasi noch der Rückzug ins Private oder die L

Application of selected new urbanist principles to residential infill developments in mature suburbs of Greater Boston by Andrew I Port ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The New Urbanist movement has grown considerably in the past decade in response to the impacts of sprawl in the United States. The crisis of sprawl has been caused in large part by poorly crafted land use regulations, many of which mandate sprawl. While an abundance of contemporary land use and planning literature focuses on the concepts of New Urbanism, little attention has been given to their regulatory implementation. And while developers and architects have responded to the problems of sprawl with plans for the development of new communities, few have looked at the opportunity to retrofit existing suburbs. This research adds to the field by illustrating how selected New Urbanist principles can be viably applied to residential infill developments in mature suburbs (specifically Greater Boston) if alternative regulations are adopted. Such development will not only preserve natural resources at the urban edge, but will ensure the efficiency and vitality of our mature core communities. Four developments in communities' representative of the Greater Boston region illustrate the contemporary (conventional) form of residential infill and two are given a post-mortem design alternative (New Urbanist). These alternative developments illustrate the viability of applying New Urbanist principles to residential infill in mature suburbs of Greater Boston. A model hamlet development regulation, used as a guide in developing the alternative designs, illustrates that
