The built environment affects our physical, mental and social well-being. Here renowned professionals from practice and academia explore the evidence from basic research as well as case studies to test this belief. They show that many elements in the built environment contribute to establishing a milieu which helps people to be healthier and have the energy to concentrate while being free to be creative. The health and well-being agenda pervades society in many different ways but we spend much of our lives in buildings, so they have an important role to play within this total picture. This demands us to embrace change and think beyond the conventional wisdom while retaining our respect for it. Creating the Productive Workplace shows how we need to balance the needs of people and the ever-increasing enabling technologies but also to take advantage of the healing powers of Nature and let them be part of environmental design. This book aims to lead to more human-centred ways of designing the built environment with deeper meaning and achieve healthier and more creative, as well as more productive places to work.

The Bantu-Jareer Somalis: Unearthing Apartheid in the Horn of Africa By Mohamed A. Eno Somalia is generally thought of as a homogenous society, with a common Arabic ancestry, a shared culture of nomadism and one Somali mother tongue. This study challenges this myth. Using the Jareer/Bantu as a case study, the book shows how the Negroid physical features of this ethnic group has become the basis for ethnic marginalization, stigma, social exclusion and apartheid in Somalia. The book is another contribution to the recent deconstruction of the perceived Somali homogeneity and self-same assertions. It argues that the Somalis, just like most societies, employ multiple levels of social and ethnic distinctions, one of which is the Jareer versus Jileec divide. Dr. Eno successfully portrays another Somalia, in which a mythical homogeneity masks the oppression and social exclusion suffered by some ethnic groups in the country ------------------------------------------------------------ "An important and empirically compelling book.. It is bound to usher a new era in which Somali scholarship must confront how to close the gap between the theoretically assumed homogenous and empirically diverse Somalia. Dr Eno's work is easily the most comprehensive and current examination of the social and cultural diversity of the Somali society, and particularly hitherto unacknowledged racialized aspects of Somalia." -- Abdi M. Kusow Professor of Sociology, Oakland University, USA "The story is told of a Somali parliamentary delegation in the U.S. during the turbulent years of the 1960s. An American journalist asked one of the Somali lawmakers what he thought of the civil rights movement in America. 'No comment, ' the lawmaker said, 'for we have a similar problem in Somalia.' The "problem" the lawmaker was referring to is the Bantu-Jareer question in Somali history.. In The Bantu-Jareer Somalis: Unearthing Apartheid in the Horn of Africa, Dr. Mohamed Eno traces the etymology of the sort of saga that frames and informs the Somali lawmaker's response.. By analyzing the intersections between nation, culture, ethnicity and narrative, Dr. Eno turns Somali history upside down, and inside out." -- Ali Jimale Ahmed, Professor of Comparative Literature, Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, __________________________________________ Mohamed A. Eno is on the academic faculty of ADNOC Technical Institute (ATI) in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, where he teaches ESL in the Foundation Program. He is Dean of St Clements University - Somalia and holds a PhD in Social Studies Education and MA in TESOL. He is also a candidate for EdD (Doctor of Education) specializing in Applied Linguistics & TESOL at the University of Leicester, United Kingdom. Dr. Eno has previously taught at Eno School of Languages, the Somali National University and at the Extra Mural Dept. of the University of Nairobi.
