Product Description
From Eco-cities to Living Machines presents the ecologically-based working designs and prototypes of biologist John Todd and writer and environmental activist Nancy Todd. Since 1969 with the founding of New Alchemy Institute on Cape Cod, the Todds have become known world-wide for their leadership in the restoration of pure water, bioremediation of wild aquatic environments, food production, and urban design. In this new book, the Todds further develop the idea of Eco-cities, designs for integrating agriculture and flowing pure water into green urban settings and introduce Living Machines, a family of technologies for purifying wastewaters to tertiary quality effluent without chemicals. Provocative and grounded firmly in the principles of biodiversity, the Todds' work encompasses site-specific technological interventions and systems-wide ecological planners and designers, environmental economists, and systems-based engineers working to change the way we utilize production, technology, water and energy. ...

John Todd (b. 1939) is a biologist working in the field of ecological design, and this 1994 book was co-written with his wife Nancy (who has also written A Safe and Sustainable World: The Promise Of Ecological Design).This book is an updating (with much material copied literally word-for-word) of their earlier book, Bioshelters, Ocean Arks, City Farming: Ecology as the Basis of Design.

They note early on "The relevance of the GAIA hypothesis in the context of our work is as both working premise and metaphor."One of their fundamental principles is, "Biology is the model for design."They actually break the work into sections based on their nine "Precepts," such as, "Design Should Follow, Not Oppose, the Laws of Life," "Design must Reflect Bioregionality," "Design Should be Coevolutionary with the Natural World," "Design Should Follow a Sacred Ecology."

Here are some representative quotations from the book:

"It is only because most of us do not have a sense of human history over this long period of time that we do not feel how ODD it is to build cities and suburbs as we do."

"Some of the saddest designs in architecture are those of schools."

"The economics for converting a factory to a solar food barn are as yet conjectural."

"A living machine is a device made up of living organisms of all types and usually housed within a casing or structure made of extremely light-weight materials."

This book will continue to be of interest to those interested in ecology, ecovillages, sustainable communities, urban planning, intentional communities, etc.

4-0 out of 5 stars Living Machines
I found the book to be very informative. It was specific enough to understand his work even if you aren't a biologist yet tied together nicely with an holistic paradigm that wasn't overdone. His vision of the ideal future for urban planning seemed reasonable and worth aiming for.

3-0 out of 5 stars not much new since 1985
While I find Dr. Todd's work inspiring, this time around I was disappointed by this particular book.There isn't much new in it since the 1985 publication of Bioshelters, Ocean Arks, and City Farming: Ecology as the Basis of Design.For example, Eco-Cities lifted at times the same paragraphs and sentences from Bioshelters when describing the Cape Cod Ark, the Margaret Mead sailing boat, the Lindisfarne Hamlet, and rooftop gardens.

If you haven't read the 1985 book, then I could see how Eco-Cities deserves a throrough reading.If you have read Bioshelters than I would not purchase the new book, Eco-Cities, but take a glance at it at your local library instead.

I'm currently trying to organize an association in Paris, France to build an apartment complex using the ideas found in both Bioshelters and Eco-Cities.But I'm finding it difficult to gather concrete examples, blueprints, or even contact numbers for architectural firms with the experience to do so.I'd like to encourage the folks at Ocean Arks International to publish a book like Eco-Cities but move past concepts and give us a technological guide for actually creating eco-cities.

5-0 out of 5 stars new approacj and ideas
Dr. Todd presents us with clear, easy and very logical ideas of how weshould live and build our cities. This book should be a required readingfor most professionals that deal with development. I would like to see asecond book with more hands on examples. ... Read more

Product Description
Born November 10, 1818, John Todd grew up in the rural area surrounding Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The most formative experience of his life was attending college in Oberlin, Ohio. A one-of-a-kind educational institution, Oberlin College was fully integrated—allowing men and women, black and white, to attend the same classes—at a time when the entire country was in a racial upheaval. As a result, Oberlin turned out a group of men and women almost devoid of racial prejudice. It was from this pool of graduates that many of the founders of Tabor, Iowa, were drawn. They were determined to found an Oberlin-like college in the westernmost territory of the United States, so it was no surprise that this group quickly became active in the Underground Railroad and other abolitionist activities. This biography details the life of the Reverend John Todd and presents the story of the Underground Railroad Station in Tabor. With the life of Todd as a common thread, the book explores how the station began and the noble purposes behind its birth. From the beginning of Todd’s career at Oberlin College, the book follows him from an unsatisfying first pastorate to the site of his life’s work in Tabor, where he would provide spiritual guidance and leadership, along with friend George Gaston, for the settlement. The work covers the prewar construction of the Tabor Literary Institute, which was beset by financial and administrative difficulties from the beginning. With a singleness of purpose spurred on by Todd and Gaston, the residents of Tabor joined in the abolitionist movement through participation not only in the Underground Railroad but in the Jim Lane Trail and Kansas Free State Movement as well. John Brown was in and out of Tabor on many occasions, bringing escaped slaves with him. Todd’s service in the Union Army and jubilation with the Federal victory are also discussed. An appendix contains various letters and documents pertaining to the Todd family, the Underground Railroad and other abolitionist activities. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Very informative but...
Any text like this should employ a panel of those who have actually had cardiac surgery. I felt it missed a bit of that point of view that would help smooth out the patient care, such as the customary protocol of quickly pulling out lead wires 7 days after surgery when tissue has had time to secure them to the heart tissue. The peritoneal tube removal is not even that bad. Something's just not right about some of the things, although I appreciate the detailed clinical view and have great confidence in those procedures to keep the patient well and alive.

4-0 out of 5 stars AN INTERESTING READ
Contrary to the feministic ranting of a previous reviewer,this volume concentrates on one aspect of the Todd-Dickinson affair..While Walsh does indeed "speculate",he does so using the historical data available..Contrary to what some may think,historical speculation using available historical sources is what most documentary historical narratives are all about...One can hardly "know" exactly what motivated any long-ago historical personage to do whatever he/she may have done,except for the historical sources left behind..Often times these documents,letters,journals,and suchlike are opininated rather than strictly accurate,and just as often they are driven by emotion rather than the sort of cold strictly factual documentation that an expert would rather have..Does this make such speculation,based upon available evidence any less valid?No,it does not...
Feminist ranting about male authors taking female historical subjects to task for thier sexual inclinations,while alledgedly ignoring the same behaviour in males aside,it has to be remembered that history cannot always be viewed through a purely politically correct "modern"lens...Like it or not,female sexual behaviour WAS a topic of much discussion when the Todd-Dickinson affair transpired,and it then was the female's conduct and not the male's which recieved the most scrutiny..To attempt to view any historical event without taking into account the then-prevailing attitudes and social mores is an exercise in deliberate foolishness and is doomed to failure and justifiable ridicule..
As for the"other"accomplishments of Mabel Todd,such as her musical abilities,these are hardly relevant to the issue addressed in the Walsh book...Ms.Todd may have been an absolute genius at other things,but the issue here is her affair with Mr.Dickinson,and what ramifications may have come from it...Ms.Todd's other abilities,such as they were,are of marginal importance to the issue thus addressed.
It is too bad that some readers find it absolutes necessary to try and justify every long-ago event through the strainer of 21st century political correctness..Things were NOT politically correct until only recently,and,therefore,trying to graft a bogus modern,politically correct "meaning"onto an event that transpired in past times that were entirely absent the current,noxious form of political correctness does all historical research a disservice..
This book is fine reading,if a bit speculative which,in the end,is as it should be..Moreover,it refrains from attempting to present a long ago event within the narrow,confining,often entirely bogus confines of todays politically correct thought-police limitations ,which alone should recommend it to any reader.

1-0 out of 5 stars Atrocious.
Walsh's account of the Todd-Dickinson affair is probably the most unbalanced work in the name of scholarship I have read so far. Unabashedly biased and judgemental, this book reeks of the author's personal issues with matters of adultery, while no effort is expended in trying to understand the complicated dynamic between all the adults involved in the affair.

Among other ludicrous and reductive explanantions for the behavior of Dickinson and Todd, Walsh asserts that Dickinson's participation in an almost fifteen-year affair was driven by a desire for "revenge against the fate" that had taken his son, who died as a young child. Walsh's grip on the psychology behind this stops here as does the supporting evidence. However, a great more effort is made to "justify" Austin's role in the affair while Todd, according to Walsh, is guilty of the deliberate "wrecking" of the reputation of Austin's wife, Susan, assuming that for her, malice toward others was the driving force behind her participation in the affair.

Apparently, Walsh is joining the ranks of a long line of historians and scholars who see fit to crucify their female subjects for deviant sexual behavior, while ignoring or justifying the same behavior in men. It is also interesting to note that Todd's sexual behavior is the just about the only aspect of her life mentioned in this book; her numerous accomplishments as a musician, author, painter, seasoned travelor and lecturer are dismissed or ignored. Once again, with Walsh's help, the historical representation of an ambitious, successful female is reduced to that of a conniving, malicious "hussy" whose sexual behavior exclusively defines her.

It seems odd that Walsh or any other investigator on this topic feels the need to "justify" or blame anyone's actions, well over a century after the fact. Susan and Austin Dickinson and Mabel and David Todd were all strong, creative personalities who created their own complex dynamic which in turn created the behaviors we have evidence of today. Understanding what happened between them as a group is nearly impossible, but reducing their individual motivations to a series of quick explanations is simply foolish and unrealistic. No individual is this easily explained through biography, historical research or other speculation. Even Walsh's attempts to portray Susan as the "victim" in the affair are reductive and insulting. That she should be viewed historically as a passive martyr, who "endured" the events around her, sacrificing her own accomplishments and reputation is ridiculous. Given her intelligence and social dexterity, it seems her role must be given a more complex motivation than this.

If nothing else, Walsh's account raises some important questions about just how much social attitudes toward women have changed over the years. Do we still consider successful, ambitious women who challenge the sexual status quo to be threats to society? Mabel Todd extended the notion of "ownership" in a nineteenth-century marriage to include more than one partner, and partners of her choosing. Mr. Walsh's aggressive condemnation of her suggests that if an educated woman were to suggest such a radical definition of multiple partner marriage today, she too would be considered deviant and perhaps malicious. Have attitudes toward women evolved to the degree where women might be able to criticize the accepted social dynamic of marriage without fear of castigation? Mr. Walsh's book suggests not, but I hope his view is an anomaly and that Mrs. Todd was not ahead of our time as well as her own. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Space on my book shelf
If you are into the science, technology and engineering of a (potentially) real space elevator, you might find this book a waste of your time and money. I did. For current, up to date information the "Space Elevator Blog" and the world wide web in general are the only places to look. If you want to read some (fairly weak) science fiction, this book might suffice but don't get your hopes up too high.

4-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I love this book. I'm interested in space projects and science fiction. This was a great combination of fact and fiction. Both informative and entertaining. It's great for the laymen. You don't need to know much about space technology to understand and enjoy this book.

A terrific overview of the various steps needed to build the space elevator.Can't wait to see it happen.Hope it's soon.

4-0 out of 5 stars A project to change our future
This collection of fact and fiction centers on the proposal by a startup company, Liftport, to create a new way to get into space: an elevator. The idea is not new, and the specific means they propose to do it has been discussed in technical papers; nevertheless this is likely the first popularly accessible book that describes the new near-term practicalities of construction, operation, and business for such a system. Liftport plans to get their first elevator up and running before 2020, and this book describes how they may just be able to do that.

The format of the book is a collection of independent essays (the factual portions) and stories, some of which are reprinted from separate novels (by Arthur C. Clarke, David Brin, and Charles Sheffield) and the rest seem to have been specifically written for this collection. The quality of the fiction is rather variable; unfortunately some of the authors would perhaps have benefited from reading the technical sections, as some details are rather jarringly wrong. For example, the "Hermit of the Skies" would not plummet and burn up from the top station, but would be thrown out away from the planet - that's sort of the whole point. In "High Space", you can't be in orbit 300 miles above Earth's surface and stay over one spot - you have to be going a lot slower than orbital speeds. And the troposphere is the lowermost portion of Earth's atmosphere, not what you would hit first on the way down! But of course the technical details aren't the central point of the stories, so maybe it's silly to be picky about it.

The longest fiction section, "The Rings of Earth", by William H. Keith, is among the best of the contributed stories. The vision it paints, of a future Earth-bound society knowing of "gods" above, and the stunning reality of the ending, is almost worth the price of the whole book.

The technical essays describe the project in good detail, though somewhat redundantly and at different levels. It would have helped if the editors had given the authors a better picture of what the other parts of the book would cover.I wrote (and donated) one of those essays, so I'm somewhat familiar with the way it worked - I have met a number of the authors in person as well.

The elevator physically consists of an anchor station on Earth's surface, a counterweight beyond geosynchronous orbit in space, and a strong ribbon connecting the two. A "lifter" climbs the ribbon; technical essays cover each of those components. Additionally, power to the lifter must be supplied without physical contact which would add precious mass - a power beaming system is described that could do the job. Construction steps and safety issues are also discussed.

The remaining essays discuss business, law, and political issues more than technology. How the elevator will make money, what it will do to the space launch business, is covered in several chapters. Who will have legal jurisdiction is one central question - from these essays it seems clear the United States will at the least have a strong claim, but inclusion of many international partners would probably be safest.

One of the applications that may be enabled by the cheaper space launch services the elevator will provide are solar power satellites. An essay here by Ralph Nansen discusses the enormous potential and environmental benefits from this alternative energy solution.

Finally, the Liftport staff call on all of us to "get involved" - including sponsoring a contest to win options on 1000 Liftport company shares. This book demonstrates the company has a potentially feasible plan to radically change the relationship between Earth and space - if they succeed it will change our future. Are you ready to join?

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, even for a casual reader
I have no science degree and spend little time pondering space elevators, but the subject is interesting and this book is well organized.Different authors took specific topics and created one or two chapters each.Famous sames such as Kim Stanley Robinson contributed.I received this as a present prior to a week at the beach and enjoyed the book more than expected, flipping to chapters that interested me and skipping others.

By coincidence, I visited the Wright Brothers' museum near Kitty Hawk while on vacation.It is striking how rapidly air travel developed from the "cranks and weirdos" stage around 1900 to a substantive business.I do not know if the analogy translates, but you never know. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC MARVEL... CLASSIC HULK! ! ! !
Okay, this book has a wonderful collection of comics. THESE ARE INDEED HULK'S GREATEST HITS...

Fantastic Four #25-26: This is probably one of the most quintessential of early Marvel stories. BATTLE OF THE CENTURY (HULK VS. THING)

Avengers #26 A continuation, as Hulk and Thing keep fighting. This issue features all of the Avengers.

Thor #112: This is alright for THOR fans, but a great battle ensues between THOR & HULK.

Tales to Astonish (Hulk) #92-93: Once again another great fight, between The Silver Surfer and Hulk!! This comic is really good, and the artwork is pure eye candy. A great read, not to be missed.

Daredevil #163: AS A DAREDEVIL FAN, This is probably one of my favorite issues in the book. Daredevil gets his ass handed to him by the HULK then helps Bruce Banner try to leave the city, but HULK comes back... GREAT ISSUE!

Hulk #300: Another great issue featuring black Spidey, Daredevil, Avengers, Dr. Strange.

Hulk #340: Hulk vs. Wolverine... It was okay. Good fight scene, weak story!

Peter Parker: Spider-Man #14: One of my favorite in the book. Spidey & HULK fight while Peter Parker is mourning over the disappearance of MJ.

Hulk vs. Fin Fang Foom: Well this is my absolute favorite HULK story ever! Banner in Antarctica... FIN FANG FOOM frozen in ice... a battle ensues. It's my favorite b/c you get a good look at Banner & his motivations.


5-0 out of 5 stars Hulk vs. the Marvel Universe!!!
I'd just like to say, this is a must own tpb for any marvel fan, and I'm serious when I say you "must." This has a awesome collection of comics, reprinted in better quality and paper for our enjoyment. Hulk has fought almost everybody in the marvel universe, but this collects his best stuff, no doubt. Let's take a look at some of these marvel milestones...

Fantastic Four #25-26: Just these two comics are worth the price of admission for reading this book. These comics are amazing!!! Great fight between early Hulk and early Thing, Stan Lee & Jack Kirby create a wonderful masterpiece!!! Avengers #26 is even better because the Hulk and Thing keep fighting and the the entire Avengers roster shows up, and it's just awesome to see all these heroes tackle the Hulk. Every marvel fan must read this.

Journey Into Mystery (Thor) #112: This comic, and the Fantastic Four ones, are by far the best in this collection. Thor is my favorite superhero, and I always love to see the two strongest heroes of the marvel universe facing off, to prove who's the better man. Great battle scenes, good dialogue, and another classic is created from Stan the "Man" Lee & Jack "King" Kirby. Another must read comic.

Tales to Astonish (Hulk) #92-93: Once again another great fight, with another two of marvels strongest heroes. The Silver Surfer and Hulk!! This comic is really good, and you can see the artwork getting a bit better from the last ones, and Hulk is starting to loose his Frankenstein look which is good. A great read, not to be passed up on.

Daredevil #163: This one isn't one of the best comics in here, but is far from bad. The Daredevil obviously doesn't stand a chance against Hulk, and you know he doesn't, but even though he doesn't he tries his best which shows how brave and couragess he is. More of a story than a fight, which adds a little bit of variety in this book.

Hulk #300: This is another great comic in the book. A lot of heroes are in this and is around 40 pages. Hulk is going crazy and you see all the heroes from Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Thor, Vision and Doctor Strange. It's awesome to see all these heroes fight the crazy Hulk and most of them fail miserably, so you can only wonder who can take this guy down!? This comic really proves how powerful Hulk really is and doesn't dissapoint.

Hulk #340: Hulk vs. Wolverine... this comic isn't as good as everybody says. The cover is good, but the fight isn't ground-breaking or truly one of the best fights ever. But an encounter between the two can never be bad... the Grey Hulk is weaker than the green, and the artwork is not suitable for my taste. Decent comic, but they should've put in the classic Hulk #181, with the first apperance of Wolverine. It's and okay comic but if you haven't read the Peter David run you could be confused what's going on, I was anyway.

Peter Parker: Spider-Man #14: This is a newer coimc, and has left the classic 60's and 70's look, but still feels and looks good. A pretty good fight, and all of the Hulk and Spider-Man scenes are great.

Hulk vs. Fin Fang Foom: Well this has to be the worst comic in here. I mean this is pretty bad. But it makes sense to put the strongest hero against the largest villain. The fight is short and boring. Nothing great happens and the artwork just isn't my thing, I can't believe they would put this in here when they could've picked so many other great classics. Maybe a Doc Sampson brawl?? They've had many awesome encounters and could've picked one of them.

There is more good comics in this than bad, and the good overshadows most of the bad. Still could've had a Sampson fight!! This was worth every penny for me, and I don't regret buying this at all. Every marvel fan "must" own this, like I said before. Now, put this in you cart and buy it now!! Great job Marvel!! For such a great tpb!! HULK SMASH!!!

Product Description
Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "John Todd," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have John Todd in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with John Todd when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name John Todd, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain. ... Read more
