If they are to survive, cities need healthy chunks of the world’s ecosystems to persist; yet cities, like parasites, grow and prosper by local destruction of these very ecosystems. In this absorbing and wide-ranging book, Eldredge and Horenstein use New York City as a microcosm to explore both the positive and the negative sides of the relationship between cities, the environment, and the future of global biodiversity. They illuminate the mass of contradictions that cities present in embodying the best and the worst of human existence. The authors demonstrate that, though cities have voracious appetites for resources such as food and water, they also represent the last hope for conserving healthy remnants of the world’s ecosystems and species. With their concentration of human beings, cities bring together centers of learning, research, government, finance, and media—institutions that increasingly play active roles in solving environmental problems. Some of the topics covered in Concrete Jungle: --The geological history of the New York region, including remnant glacial features visible today --The early days of urbanization on Manhattan Island, focusing on the history of Central Park, Collect Pond, and Manhattan Square --The history of early railway lines and the development of New York’s iconic subway system --The problem of producing enough safe drinking water for an ever-expanding population --Prominent civic institutions, including universities, museums, and zoos

Violence was a way of life for the girls of Mott Middle School in the South Bronx. Some woke up to it at home, and others dodged it on the way to school. Vicious physical fights broke out in classrooms, hallways, and bathrooms. These girls filed their fingernails into sharp points because they had to be ready to go at any time. Then a new coach joined the ranks at Mott Middle, and a new program began: girl's softball. Astacio offers the girls the time and attention they need to take their first steps to success. As they learned to throw, hit and field, they also dealt with the foul balls life threw at them: unwanted pregnancies, abusive boyfriends, and unsupportive families. But the biggest challenge they faced was learning to think and act like a team, not just a bunch of fierce girls against each other—and the world. Lady Tigers is a story of coming together with faith, courage, and new-found values to overcome fear, violence, and doubt. These girls have ushered in a new confidence and pride not only in themselves, but in their school, the faculty, and their friends. And while not all of them have continued down this new path, many are now the first in their families to go to college and are beginning to see how being a Lady Tiger will always be a part of their lives.

The ghetto is a metaphor for the dreams spinning out of the unconscious while its children puzzle over their destiny. Naughty by nature, creatures of habit evolving from the gutter with a loose morality and an attitude of defiance ? panic infected everything they did. With an adolescent charm and a cunning charisma, Dion Johnson found the problem of making a living not a very difficult one to solve ? he had a liar? s imagination. It was survival ? to find a friend was to find a collaborator for the larceny in his heart. It was scheme ? his idea of romance goes no deeper than his ability to separate a woman from her panties or a man from his wallet. It was game ? drugs, sex and murder. Every struggle to control himself led to a desperation that ordained failure. Conquering the streets meant harnessing the rage. He would fuel this rage for as long as he could with malicious fantasy, as if he could convince himself that he would stay buoyed above the abyss indefinitely. Violence had destroyed his earlier life and pursued his present until he was drowning in a butchered dream, sinking deeper into the sewage of the city. He?d watch children on the street for clues on how to behave, the best he could do was remind himself over and over again that he was still a kid. But he couldn?t remember what being a kid felt like. His was the tears of every child ever betrayed by an adult compromise. There was a hardness that ran through him, a hardness of wild animal terror. The rage sank in and kept cutting deeper and deeper into his psyche, and in the months and years it had submerged and laid low, but it had also convoluted with each new change in his circumstances, until finally, worst of all, it had grown. A rich tapestry vividly alive with tragedy, comedy, bitterness and hope. The story unfolds in a rags to riches saga depicting the psycho-social trials of an impoverished kid navigating the emotional minefields of his own panic while suffering delusions wrought by the mean stre
