A radical history of squatting and the struggle for the right to remake the cityThe Autonomous City is the first popular history of squatting as practised in Europe and North America. Alex Vasudevan retraces the struggle for housing in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Detroit, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Milan, New York, and Vancouver. He looks at the organisation of alternative forms of housing-from Copenhagen's Freetown Christiana to the squats of the Lower East Side-as well as the official response, including the recent criminalisation of squatting, the brutal eviction of squatters and their widespread vilification.Pictured as a way to reimagine and reclaim the city, squatting offers an alternative to housing insecurity, oppressive property speculation and the negative effects of urban regeneration. We must, more than ever, reanimate and remake the urban environment as a site of radical social transformation.

Drummer Boy
95,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is a book about the ancestors and descendants of Isaiah Van Horn a Pioneer of Indiana County and Drummer Boy in his father's Bucks County, Pennsylvania Malitia. The book delineates all of the descendants that the author could locate and includes information about the family that he could gather from various sources and individuals. The Van Horn family began in the United States of America with the migration of Barent Christianson Van Horn to New Amsterdam with the early Dutch Settlers. Barent was the first Fire Marshal of New Amsterdam. He was a burger and owned an acre at the Land Gate of the Walled Street. That location is Broadway at Wall Street in New York today. The book includes some information about how later families were duped into believing that they still owned this property and that all would receive a portion of the riches from the settlement of this claim to this valuable location. The earliest ancestor in this work is Dick Clausen, born in 1616. There are over 6200 individuals included in the book covering 15 generations of Van Horn descendants. Over 1300 surnames are linked with the Van Horns in this book with over 1900 marriages delineated. It is interesting to note that the average life span from 1600 to date is 60 years and 7 months. Some indication of the longevity of the Van Horn stock. Other surnames of note are Work, Stewart, Steele, Shaffer, Mock, McElhoes, McCausland, McAFoos, Lydick, Lambing, Hutzler, Hutchison, Hummel, Gearhart, Dilts, Coon, Condron, Burket, Aul and Ashcom as well as over 1300 other surnames.

The Roots of Concern
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Description: In the aftermath of World War II, seven American Mennonite graduate students spent eleven days together in Amsterdam discussing their concerns around the state of North American Mennonite churches. Out of this historic gathering came a publication project known as Concern: A Pamphlet Series for Questions of Christian Renewal. While the series extended from 1952 to the early 1970s, the first four volumes, now printed in this single volume, comprise the roots, that is, the foundations that preceded the many articles that were written thereafter. Throughout The Roots of Concern, the discussion revolves around the recovery of an Anabaptist view of church life and discipleship. Here we find the seeds of a theme that would gain much attention in later years: the primary identity of the church as alternative community as opposed to its positive identification with the world. The fourteen articles in this volume cover a variety of issues such as form and spirit in the church, preaching, fellowship, discipleship, dissent, and property. An article coauthored by Yoder reveals his seminal thoughts around Mennonite church organization in relation to both biblical and contemporary denominational structures. Endorsements: ''In these essays we see the excitement of discovery and the enthusiasm and passion of youth. We see a theological engagement with 'the Anabaptist vision,' offered, as the 1954 editorial note said, 'For a strengthening of prophetic Christian faith and conduct.' Here we have, among these essays, some of the first incisive theological reflections of John Howard Yoder.'' - Mark Thiessen Nation, Eastern Mennonite Seminary ''The larger world opened to us via a college education was breathtaking. As newly minted Anabaptists the realities of post-World War II Europe confronted us with serious cognitive dissonances. There seemed to be a need for firm 'markers' to deal with these dissonances, but what and where were they?'' - Calvin Redekop, Harrisonburg, VA About the Contributor(s): Contributors Include: Paul Peachey John Miller John H. Yoder David Shank Norman Kraus

The urban waterfront is widely regarded as a frontier of contemporary urban development, attracting both investment and publicity. City, Capital and Water provides a detailed account of the redevelopment of urban waterfronts in nine cities around the world: London, Tokyo, Kobe, Osaka, Hong Kong, Sydney, Toronto, Dublin and Amsterdam. The case studies cover different frameworks for development in terms of the role of planning, approaches to financing, partnership agreements, state sponsorship and development profits.
