Long DescriptionThis collection of essays spans numerous disciplines, including urban planning, architecture, and history. The study focuses on the interrelated transitions of city culture and city planning in modern Georgia, establishing a field of connections between city culture and planning that is unsurpassed in breath and depth. The combination of well-established Georgian and international scholars allows for an in-depth analysis of this multiplicity of relations, an analysis that sheds new light on city planning, the role of knowledge, trust, networks, and heritage as it elucidates the shortcomings of 'transition' concepts in new ways. Concepts of identity occur over and over again in the essays, with city space appearing as an arena for identity politics. This book is timely, given the recently renewed history of conflicts in the Caucasus, and it contributes to scholarship in the area by detailing the difficulties of reshaping city and society when threats are imminent, resources are scarce, and democratic institutions are fragile.

The "Quit Application" menu item wasn't working so that got fixed. On the scan results screen, the quit menu item was only returning you to the startup screen. Now it actually quits. We also changed the label for that menu item from "Quit / Exit" to "Quit Application" to be more clear.

We added the ability to "Share" scanned data. If you can something and we can bring you to a product page, when you share you will be sharing a link to the product page. When you scan something and we don't know what to do with it (not a product barcode) we let you share the raw scan.
