La Ville de demain by Ken Powell( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Un ouvrage qui aborde avec intelligence les enjeux d'habiter la ville de demain, avec toutes ses problématiques: récupération des zones délaissées, prise en considération du caractère historique de la ville, croissance exponentielle, densité alarmante, prise en charge de la sphère économique et sociale, réflexion sur l'environnement et le transport. L'auteur étoffe son propos par la présentation de 25 projets représentatifs de cette nouvelle conscience urbaine. Des projets largement documentés, à grand renfort de reproductions, plans et maquettes. Un détail fascinant ressort de ces documents photographiques: une propreté immaculée. La "ville de demain" a assurément des visées hygiénistes. [SDM]
The fifties by David Halberstam( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Fifties is a sweeping social, political, economic, and cultural history of the ten years that David Halberstam regards as seminal in determining what our nation is today. It is the decade of Joe McCarthy and the young Martin Luther King, the Korean War and Levittown, Jack Kerouac and Elvis Presley." "Halberstam not only gives us the titans of the age - Eisenhower, Dulles, Oppenheimer, MacArthur, Hoover, and Nixon - but also Harley Earl, who put fins on cars; Dick and Mac McDonald and Ray Kroc, who mass-produced the American hamburger; Kemmons Wilson, who placed his Holiday Inns along the nation's roadsides; U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers; Grace Metalious, who wrote Peyton Place; and "Goody" Pincus, who led the team that invented the Pill. Here is a portrait of a time of conflict, at once an age of astonishing material affluence and a period of great political anxiety." "We follow, among other things, the quickening pace of American life and the powerful impact of national television, still in its infancy, on American society: from the Kefauver hearings to I Love Lucy to Charles Van Doren and the quiz-show scandals to the young John Chancellor of NBC covering the Little Rock riots and holding up a disturbing mirror to America."--Jacket
