Life in the Air

Release Date: 2001
Genre: Social Science

This book is not just about air travel. It is about the emergent social world of flying. It concerns air space and behavior in the air the way someone else might look at cities and street behavior. Economic, political, and cultural aspects are all considered. . . . Airports have now become specific places in their own right that, in a certain sense, now. . . are very much like cities. Frequent flying also has produced its very own culture. Rules of behavior are subscribed to in the air. Unique behaviors at terminals and in the passenger cabin have emerged that contrast with life on the ground. In chapters below I explore these interesting aspects of etiquette, eroticism, and bi-coastalism, a human activity that is only possible because of our present society's evolution. . . . Only now have we begun to appreciate our emergent global culture. The world is shrinking just as the opportunities for travel expand. -from the Introduction

Das wunderbare Chaos der ersten Liebe Die Sommerferien stehen vor der Tür und Andie hat alles geplant: einen Sommerkurs an einer renommierten Uni als perfekte Vorbereitung auf das Medizinstudium. Kein Problem – mit ihren guten Noten und einem bekannten Politiker als Vater. Doch als ein Skandal ihren Vater zum Rücktritt zwingt und der „befreundete“ Rektor der Eliteuni seine Empfehlung zurückzieht, steht Andie zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben ohne Plan da. So beginnt ein Sommer, in dem sie Dinge tut, die sie nie zuvor getan hat: Sie führt Hunde aus, verbringt Zeit mit ihrem Vater – und lässt den süßen Clark weiter in ihr Herz, als sie vorhatte. Aber kann das länger halten als einen Sommer?
