Who's Your City?: How the Creative Economy Is Maki&hellip by Richard Florida

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much new here., April 20 2008
While I enjoyed the "Rise of the Creative Class" this book adds little that is new, and ends up concluding that where you decide to live is important - hard to disagree with that, but I expected more.
Mission Impossible: Season 2 (7 Discs) <b>DVD</b> ~ Peter Graves
6 of 7 people found the following review helpful
Mission Impossible has aged quite well - and the second season is particularly strong. I found most of the episodes were imaginative and well written, and I enjoy watching these impossible missions unfold. My only criticism is that this box set (like season one) has no extras - and I think that this series is so good that it deserves some supplementary features and commentary. I have been watching the episodes themselves on a big screen tv - and enjoying the crisp transfer to digital and the amazing colours.
Governing Higher Education: National Perspectives &hellip by Alberto Amaral
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Collection, Sept. 29 2006
This is a very thought-provoking collection of essays based on the analysis of national transformations in institutional governance. A central theme of the volume is that scholars need to pay attention to changes in governance - since these changes have an enormous impact on the autonomy of individual scholars and the all-important sense of trust within an institution of higher education.
