La Ligne de Partage des Eaux

Loading...
The watershed lies within the perimeter of the Loire catchment area, from the source of Vienne on the Millevaches plateau to the estuary. The watershed, not the Loire river! That is to say the plane inclined towards the sea, the totality of the irrigated space, not only the line of the river. That is, business parks and wetlands, ditches and highways, meeting rooms and building sites. Because water is everywhere, in the ground, in the groundwater, in the air, circulating, infiltrating, evaporating and everywhere connecting the territories between them, denoting their interdependence, making us dream of their solidarity. The watershed is not only this geographical line that separates watersheds but it is also the political line that connects individuals and groups who have someth [...]

The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiralling out of control. One season in a life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics, money and a window into how racism is destroying a team and society from within"--Container.

Lost Rondout: A Story of Urban Removal

Loading...
"In the 1960s, federally funded urban renewal projects destroyed hundreds of working-class urban communities across America. Lost Rondout: A Story of Urban Removal chronicles how one such project impacted the Hudson Valley city of Kingston, New York, demolishing nearly 500 buildings and displacing thousands of people. Interviews with former residents bring the destroyed neighborhood back to life--its bars, clothing stores, and bakeries--and dozens of stunning slides by Gene Dauner celebrate block after block of handsome 19th-century brick buildings just prior to their demolition. Urban planners, city officials, and historians discuss how suburbanization and misguided federal policies devastated cities and how Kingston still struggles with urban renewal's troubled legacy-even as the f [...]
