Canton, Ohio
39,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Canton is the county seat of Stark County in northeastern Ohio, approximately 24 miles (39 km) south of Akron and 60 miles (97 km) south of Cleveland. Founded in 1805 on the West and Middle Branches of the Nimishillen Creek, Canton became a manufacturing center because of its numerous railroad lines. After the decline of heavy manufacturing, the city's industry diversified into service economy, including retailing, education, finance, and healthcare. The population was 80,806 at the 2000 census, but according to a 2008 census estimate, the population has declined to 78,362. Despite this decline, the 2008 figure actually had moved Canton up from 9th to 7th place among Ohio cities, as nearby Youngstown in neighboring Mahoning County, once considerably more populous than Canton, had suffered a larger decline. According to the US Census 2008 estimate, the Canton-Massillon, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area has a total population of 407,653 residents.

Buffalo Crime Family
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Buffalo crime family is a long-standing criminal organization based in Western New York. It is considered a part of the Mafia, otherwise known as La Cosa Nostra, the leading criminal organization within the National Crime Syndicate or "The Mob." The Buffalo crime family, also called The Arm, was a dominant underworld power within North America from the 1920s well into the 1980s. Much of the group's history centers around the reign of its most powerful and famous boss, Stefano Magaddino, known to his friends and underworld associates as "Don Stefano" and to the media as "The Undertaker." The Buffalo crime family's base of power has been the City of Buffalo, New York for the last century, but the group has also had criminal interests and satellite groups, or "crews", in other areas, such as Rochester and Utica in upstate New York, eastern Pennsylvania, Youngstown, Ohio, and the southern Ontario cities of Niagara Falls, Hamilton and Toronto.

Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefini...
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Experts estimate that perhaps forty square miles of Detroit are vacant-from a quarter to a third of the city -a level of emptiness that creates a landscape unlike any other big city. Author John Gallagher, who has covered urban redevelopment for the Detroit Free Press for two decades, spent a year researching what is going on in Detroit precisely because of its open space and the dire economic times we face. Instead of presenting another account of the city's decline, Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefining an American City showcases the innovative community-building work happening in the city and focuses on what else can be done to make Detroit leaner, greener, and more economically self-sufficient. Gallagher conducted numerous interviews, visited community projects, and took many of the photographs that accompany the text to uncover some of the strategies that are being used, and could be used in the future, to make twenty-first century Detroit a more sustainable and desirable place to live. Some of the topics Gallagher discusses are urban agriculture, restoring vacant lots, reconfiguring Detroit's overbuilt road network, and reestablishing some of the city's original natural landscape. He also investigates new models for governing the city and fostering a more entrepreneurial economy to ensure a more stable political and economic future. Along the way, Gallagher introduces readers to innovative projects that are already under way in the city and proposes other models for possible solutions-from as far away as Dresden, Germany, and Seoul, South Korea, and as close to home as Philadelphia and Youngstown-to complement current efforts. Ultimately, Gallagher helps to promote progressive ideas and the community leaders advancing them and offers guidance for other places dealing with the shrinking cities phenomenon. Readers interested in urban studies and environmental issues will enjoy the fresh perspective of Reimagining Detroit.

Steel Phoenix
187,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Steel Phoenix recounts the downfall of 'Big Steel' in America and the emergence of a new steel industry from the ashes of the old. Hall reveals how the death of the traditional steel industry devastated cities such as Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Youngstown. Hall then proceeds to examine how pioneering entrepreneurs and engineers rebuilt the industry by recycling large supplies of scrap steel, giving way to a 'minimill' industry which ultimately saved what was left of old Big Steel mills. The story of an industry's surprising rebirth and restoration, Steel Phoenix is a riveting analysis and a necessary resource for any student of American business and history.

The New Minority
23,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It wasn't so long ago that the white working class occupied the middle of British and American societies. But today members of the same demographic, feeling silenced and ignored by mainstream parties, have moved to the political margins. In the United States and the United Kingdom, economic disenfranchisement, nativist sentiments and fear of the unknown among this group have even inspired the creation of new right-wing parties and resulted in a remarkable level of support for fringe political candidates, most notably Donald Trump. Answers to the question of how to rebuild centrist coalitions in both the U.S. and U.K. have become increasingly elusive. How did a group of people synonymous with Middle Britain and Middle America drift to the ends of the political spectrum? What drives their emerging radicalism? And what could possibly lead a group with such enduring numerical power to, in many instances, consider themselves a 'minority' in the countries they once defined? In The New Minority, Justin Gest speaks to people living in once thriving working class cities--Youngstown, Ohio and Dagenham, England--to arrive at a nuanced understanding of their political attitudes and behaviors. In this daring and compelling book, he makes the case that tension between the vestiges of white working class power and its perceived loss have produced the unique phenomenon of white working class radicalization.
