📒The Land Of Plenty ✍ Mark Davis
📝The Land Of Plenty Book Synopsis : 'There is an Australian dream that is collective. It goes to the roots of what it means to be Australian, since it's imprinted in Australia's history, the collective acts of its peoples, their attitudes, their gestures, what and how they eat, how they spend their leisure time, and the way such things reflect upon and derive from who they are.' In The Land of Plenty, Mark Davis argues that this dream has been forsaken. Over the past few decades Australians have felt the ground shift beneath their feet. Many people are asking why Australia is no longer the egalitarian place it once was. While the airwaves sing and newspaper front pages burst with news of how prosperous Australians are, many people wonder why they are working harder and longer, for so little, while important social agendas have fallen by the wayside. The Land of Plenty is at once a devastating record of the changes that have taken place in Australian society since the 1980s, and a goldmine of ideas for change. Insightful, provocative and thoroughly original, The Land of Plenty is a manifesto for our times.

📒In A Land Of Plenty ✍ Tim Pears
📝In A Land Of Plenty Book Synopsis : In a small town in the middle of England, the aftermath of the Second World War brings change. For ambitious industrialist Charles Freeman, it offers new opportunities and marriage to Mary. He buys the big house on the hill and nails his aspirations to the future. In quick succession, three sons and a daughter bring life to the big house and, with it, the seeds of family joy and tragedy. As the children grow and struggle with the hazards of adulthood, Charles' business expands in direct proportion to his girth and becomes a symbol of the town's fortunes as Britain claws its way back from the grey austerity of wartime Britain. As times change, so do the family's fortunes. Their stories create a generous epic, an extraordinarily rich and plangent hymn to the transformation of middle England over the past fifty years. At its heart is a diverse and persuasive cast of loveable and odious characters attempting to contend with the restrictions of their generation. This is the story of our lives.
📒Water Bankruptcy In The Land Of Plenty ✍ Franck Poupeau
📝Water Bankruptcy in the Land of Plenty Book Synopsis : As the American Southwest faces its deepest drought in history, this book explores the provocative notion of “water bankruptcy” with a view towards emphasizing the diversity and complexity of water issues in this region. It bridges between the narratives of growth and the strategies or policies adopted to pursue competing agendas and circumvent the inevitable. A window of opportunity provided by this current long-term drought may be used to induce change by dealing with threats that derive from imbalances between growth patterns and available resources, the primary cause of scarcity. A first of its kind, this book was developed through close collaboration of a broad range of natural scientists, social scientists, and resource managers from Europe and United States. It constitutes a collective elaboration of a transdisciplinary approach to unveiling the inner workings of how water was fought for, allocated and used in the American Southwest, with a focus on Arizona. Specifically, it offers an innovative scientific perspective that produces a critical diagnostic evaluation of water management, with a particular view to identifying risks for the Tucson region that is facing continuous urban sprawl and economic growth. The book offers a diversity of complementary perspectives, including a statement of natural resources, biodiversity and their management, an analysis of water policy and its history, and a statement of ecosystem services in the context of both local biodiversity and also the economic activities that sustain economic growth. Finally, it presents a concerted effort to explore the interplay between a variety of related scientific disciplines and frameworks including climatology, hydrology, water management, ecosystem services, societal metabolism, political economy and social science.

📒Ten Tales From The Land Of Plenty ✍ Marc Trujillo
📝Ten Tales from the Land of Plenty Book Synopsis :
📝Wim Wenders Land of Plenty A love hate relationship with the USA Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Newer History, European Unification, grade: 2,0, University of California, Berkeley (Department of History), course: U.S. Cultural and Intellectual History: Global Contexts, language: English, abstract: Wim Wenders' ambiguity, the love‐hate relationship with the United States was the main force behind the production of “Land of Plenty” (2004). It was shot within three weeks with a small digital amateur camera, and only because the production of his next film “Don’t come knocking” (2005) got delayed. The entire production of the movie took not more than six weeks. Without a doubt, it is Wenders’ most political film so far. As a Christian, one (or, as he stated once, even his initial) idea for the film was “to set a radically contrary idea of being Christian against the fundamentalist Christendom” of the Bush administration. His ambition was to “fight against the treason [on democracy and freedom and] on all what is left of my childhood myth.” As stated in the press release for “Land of Plenty”, it is a “film about the country he has been concerned with for many years and which he loves”, a “very personal” and “sanguine film about those who still stand for this country’s possibilities [...], a political essay.” Typical for his artistic approach, Wenders did not want to make an “angry” film, but one that could contribute to “healing”; a profound difference to films by Michael Moore, a name often dropped in Germany in the context of “Land of Plenty”. Wenders, as he stated himself, wanted to explore the same territory as Moore, but, of course, in his very own way. In direct comparison to Moore , the Süddeutsche Zeitung, for example, grants Wenders “more complex, sadly beautiful, inconceivable images” and an overall more convincing approach.
