This thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's guide to Switzerland offers a unique perspective on getting the most from this mountainous country travelling only by public transport - a timely release with the Gotthard Base Tunnel transforming north-south train services. Switzerland boasts the world's finest public transport network, and the Swiss Travel System is a revelation. The comfort, efficiency and frequency of train, bus, boat and cable car services explain why so many Swiss don't own cars. Visitors cannot reach many of the finest Swiss sights by road, and there are over a dozen car-free resorts for experiencing the peace and clean air of the mountains. For walkers and cyclists, there are superbly managed networks of paths - almost 64,000 kilometres of footpaths and many surprisingly unhilly cycle paths beside lakes and rivers. Bradt's Switzerland is unique. No other guide book is devoted to Swiss public transport, which is the easiest, most enjoyable and responsible way to travel. The guide offers depth and breadth of coverage, encompassing culture, architecture, landscapes, walking and cycling, and fascinating facts for railway enthusiasts! There's a host of tips for reducing costs in a country known for being expensive, while a new section on food and wine includes a list of top restaurants. Switzerland has some of the world's most beautiful landscapes; though mountains and lakes cover most of the country's regions, each offers something quite different - and the four official languages add colour and variety. Switzerland's cities are among the world's most beautiful - and safest. Its capital, Bern, is a World Heritage Site with 6 kilometres of covered arcades, where even jaded shoppers will be enthralled by hundreds of independent shops. Luzern's lakeside setting is unrivalled, with mountains in every direction and the floodlit city walls providing a breath-taking backdrop to the historic centre. Lausanne and Geneva overlook Lac Léman, and Basel is enhanced by a broad sweep of the Rhine. With Bradt's Switzerland: a guide to exploring the country by public transport, you can enjoy all the qualities that help ensure Switzerland and its cities are consistently ranked as the most liveable in the world.

Lessons about Simulation Technology and Organizational Change from Automotive Design

A novel theory of organizational and technological change, illustrated by an account of the development and implementation of a computer-based simulation technology. Every workday we wrestle with cumbersome and unintuitive technologies. Our response is usually "That's just the way it is." Even technology designers and workplace managers believe that certain technological changes are inevitable and that they will bring specific, unavoidable organizational changes. In this book, Paul Leonardi offers a new conceptual framework for understanding why technologies and organizations change as they do and why people think those changes had to occur as they did. He argues that technologies and the organizations in which they are developed and used are not separate entities; rather, they are made up of the same building blocks: social agency and material agency. Over time, social agency and material agency become imbricated--gradually interlocked--in ways that produce some changes we call "technological" and others we call "organizational." Drawing on a detailed field study of engineers at a U.S. auto company, Leonardi shows that as the engineers developed and used a a new computer-based simulation technology for automotive design, they chose to change how their work was organized, which then brought new changes to the technology.Each imbrication of the social and the material obscured the actors' previous choices, making the resulting technological and organizational structures appear as if they were inevitable. Leonardi suggests that treating organizing as a process of sociomaterial imbrication allows us to recognize and act on the flexibility of information technologies and to create more effective work organizations.

This book presents a thorough discussion of utility cycling, cycling in the urban environment, and everyday mobility. It is based on large survey answered by 14,000 participants in the bike to work action in Switzerland, and quantifies the various dimensions of utility cycling. It proposes an innovative theoretical framework to analyse and understand the various dimensions of the uses of bikes and their diversity. It addresses the factors that motivate commuters to get on their bike, and highlights the barriers to this practice between deficient infrastructures and lack of legitimacy. This research makes a diagnosis and discusses the way to develop this sustainable mode of transportation. By combining quantitative results in the form of tables, figures, and maps, and including qualitative results in the form of quotations from survey participants, this book provides a thorough and enjoyable read. It will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, advanced students in the field of urban planning, social sciences, and transportation.

Professor Howard J. Wiarda, a leading academic expert on foreign policy, comparative politics, and international affairs, is the author of more than eighty books. Wiarda has traveled to many of the world's most troubled and exciting places. Now, in the more personal accounts of his global travels, he recalls his foreign research adventures, the countries visited, and the people he met and interviewed along the way. Wiarda's new four-volume set, Exploring the World: Adventures of a Global Traveler, details his travels and foreign adventures since 2006. In these travel books, he tells the stories that lie behind the research, offers his impressions of the countries and regions he has explored, and considers how and why some have been successful and others not. Volume I in this new series tells the story of Wiarda's 2010 circumnavigation of the globe. Volume II focuses on Europe and the continued importance of European regionalism-despite the bumper stickers advertising "Europe Whole and Free." Volume III deals with Latin America and questions whether the region is really as democratic as we would like it to be. Volume IV provides Wiarda's analysis of Asia's economic miracles while also recounting his recent visits to the Persian Gulf and his assessment of modernization and development in the Islamic world. Insightful and entertaining, Wiarda's travel narratives offer commentary on important and interesting sites all over the world.

"Hello, my dear, take a seat," were the kind words spoken by the doctor. His quiet manner exuded a self-assurance and efficiency, and his office radiated the warmth of a cheerfully decorated Christmas Eve. "Kathy, I have the results of your tests here. They indicate that you have MDS-Myelodysplasia Syndrome 5q-." "What does this mean, doctor?" "In layman's terms you have a rare form of leukemia, a blood cancer," he said. And so began my journey to Far Horizons.
