From local bike-sharing initiatives to overhauls of transport infrastructure, mobility is one of the most important areas in which modern cities are trying to realize a more sustainable future. Yet even as politicians and planners look ahead, there remain critical insights to be gleaned from the history of urban mobility and the unsustainable practices that still impact our everyday lives. United by their pursuit of a “usable past,” the studies in this interdisciplinary collection consider the ecological, social, and economic aspects of urban mobility, showing how historical inquiry can make both conceptual and practical contributions to the projects of sustainability and urban renewal.

This book addresses some of the baffling questions encountered at the final frontier of space and time related to particle physics and cosmology in the context of recent iconoclastic observations and developments. When particle physics stagnated in the early seventies, a new development emerged String Theory. For the past 25 years, String Theory, popularly called the "Theory of Everything," has mesmerized not just scientists, but also the general public. Yet a closer scrutiny today reveals that it is no more than a mathematical marvel. It has neither predicted anything nor has it been anywhere near verification. We are essentially where we were in the early seventies. Another chronic problem that Einstein had abandoned was the unified description of his theory of General Relativity that deals with the Universe at large and Electromagnetism which is to do with particles. Such a description is necessary even if it warrants a radical departure from our time-honoured ideas of space and time. A bright spot has now appeared in Cosmology. Iconoclastic observations in the past years have shown that the Universe is actually accelerating, driven by a mysterious Dark Energy. This book takes the lay reader through these uncharted waters and mind-boggling developments on an unimaginable journey from the ultra small to the farthest stretches conceivable, via such imagination defying concepts as extra dimensions and multiple universes.

The Committee has continued to investigate the Darfur situation since its report in March 2005 (HC 67-I, 5th report of session 2004-05, ISBN 0215023420) and the Government's response (Cm. 6576, ISBN 0101657625). The reported decline in attacks is due, the Committee believes, to de facto ethnic cleansing having succeeded. The consequent increase in the number of people dependent upon humanitarian aid is a concern, especially as the ability of aid agencies to deliver assistance has been seriously affected by banditry and violence. The Committee finds that the Sudan government has not done enough to stop the violence, and should have sanctions imposed on it by the United Nations (UN) until it does so. It also questions the effectiveness of the African Union (AU) force trying to prevent the violence. Its funding is insufficient, and its manpower under strength. The UN Millennium Review Summit declared a responsibility to protect the civilians in Darfur, and the Committee feels that that responsibility should be adopted by all UN members, not just neighbouring African ones. It calls on the UK Government to take action to put resources in place, either through the UN or the AU, to ensure effective protection for people in Darfur.
