  • - Discovering the City's Past, Present, and Future Through Its Place-Names
    av Joshua Jelly-Schapiro
    233,-

    "A casually wondrous experience; it made me feel like the city was unfolding beneath my feet.” —Jia Tolentino, author of Trick MirrorIn place-names lie stories. That’s the truth that animates this fascinating journey through the names of New York City’s streets and parks, boroughs and bridges, playgrounds and neighborhoods.Exploring the power of naming to shape experience and our sense of place, Joshua Jelly-Schapiro traces the ways in which native Lenape, Dutch settlers, British invaders, and successive waves of immigrants have left their marks on the city’s map. He excavates the roots of many names, from Brooklyn to Harlem, that have gained iconic meaning worldwide. He interviews the last living speakers of Lenape, visits the harbor’s forgotten islands, lingers on street corners named for ballplayers and saints, and meets linguists who study the estimated eight hundred languages now spoken in New York.As recent arrivals continue to find new ways to make New York’s neighborhoods their own, the names that stick to the city’s streets function not only as portals to explore the past but also as a means to reimagine what is possible now.

    "There's no such thing as rural America. Or, rather, as Steven Conn argues, "rural America" is a phrase that has been made to mean so many things that it doesn't mean anything. In fact, he maintains, rural America--so often characterized as in crisis or in danger of being left behind--has been shaped by the same major forces as the rest of the country since at least the end of the Civil War: militarization, industrialization, corporatization, and suburbanization. Conn calls for us to dispense with the fantasies and visions that are often imposed on rural America, in the hopes of more productively addressing the real challenges facing all of America"--

  • - Oslos naturhistorie gjennom to milliarder år
    av Henrik H. Svensen
    404,-

    En fascinerende fortelling om byen som ble skapt av lava, is og mennesker. Oslos naturhistorie kan spores to milliarder år tilbake i tid. Landskapet i og omkring byen har i seg en hukommelse om skiftende klima, utryddede dyrearter og eksplosive vulkanutbrudd. I løpet av de siste tre millioner år har mer enn 40 istider herjet med landskapet, og vi ser fortsatt sporene etter den siste. Landet har steget gradvis over havnivå, øyer er blitt til fastland og fjorder til ferskvann. Siden menneskene først slo seg ned omkring Oslofjorden, har endringene vært enorme. Skogen ble ryddet og jorden dyrket, en utvikling som kulminerte med bydannelse, gruvedrift, industri, utbyggingen i Bjørvika. Endringene vi har påført jorden er så store at vi står på terskelen til en ny geologisk epoke, antropocen, eller menneskets tidsalder. I denne boka forteller den prisbelønte forskeren og forfatteren Henrik H. Svensen den spennende historien om Oslos geologiske utvikling. Vi kan lese om opprinnelsen til de vulkanske sprekkene under byen, den gamle havbunnen under Slottsparken, Nordmarkas magmahav og mye mer. Boka er rikt illustrert med kart og vakre foto og har forslag til geologiske turer.
