The promises and realities of digital innovation have come to suffuse everything from city regions to astronomy, government to finance, art to medicine, politics to warfare, and from genetics to reality itself. Digital systems augmenting physical space, buildings, and communities occupy a special place in the evolutionary discourse about advanced technology. The two Intelligent Environments books edited by Peter Droege span a quarter of a century across this genre. The second volume, Intelligent Environments: Advanced Systems for a Healthy Planet, asks: how does civilization approach thinking systems, intelligent spatial models, design methods, and support structures designed for sustainability, in ways that could counteract challenges to terrestrial habitability? This book examines a range of baseline and benchmark practices but also unusual and even sublime endeavors across regions, currencies, infrastructure, architecture, transactive electricity, geodesign, net-positive planning, remote work, integrated transport, and artificial intelligence in understanding the most immediate spatial setting: the human body. The result of this quest is both highly informative and useful, but also critical. It opens windows on what must fast become a central and overarching existential focus in the face of anthropogenic planetary heating and other threats—and raises concomitant questions about direction, scope, and speed of that change.

Fiber and Textile Engineering in Drug Delivery Systems explains how innovative textile processing methods including rotary spinning, microfluidics, wet spinning and electrospinning can be used to produce novel drug delivery solutions. This topical book provides detailed descriptions of how to produce such new materials for this purpose, with foundational content to help readers from a range of backgrounds understand the context of material selection and design decisions. Emphasis is given to the engineering side of the manufacturing of the textile and its role in drug delivery, but this also acts as a guide to pharmaceutical applications of textile fibers for materials scientists. Drug delivery research is rapidly expanding and experimenting with new materials to drive improved clinical outcomes as the efficacy of the therapeutic molecule is highly dependent on the right choice of carrier system. Recently, fiber based carriers at both nano and micro scales are gaining interest in the scientific community due to ease of manufacturing, high surface area to volume ratio, desirable drug release kinetics and high mechanical strength.
