Three Old Dominion University faculty members have recently published books.

The second edition of "Cities in the Third Wave," by Leonard I. Ruchelman, eminent scholar of urban studies and public administration, has been released by Rowman & Littlefield. This fully updated edition surveys the remarkable transformation that is taking place in urban America.

Arguing that technology has both created and recast cities throughout history, Ruchelman explores how cities are being affected by new technology and how they will evolve in the future.

The book is designed to help students understand what it will take for their cities, and other cities around the world, to survive and even thrive in a fast-moving environment.

William G. Cunningham, eminent scholar of educational leadership and counseling, has written "A Handbook for Educational Leadership Interns: A Right of Passage," published by Allyn & Bacon.

He recently gave an invited presentation on the internship in educational leadership and his new book to professors of educational administration and New Jersey State Department of Education personnel in Trenton.

Hiroyuki Hamada, associate professor of exercise science, sport, physical education and recreation, and martial artist in-residence, has published two books:

• "Dynamic Self-Defense for Survival and Wellness" (McGraw-Hill Publishing Co.).

• "Quintessence of Japanese Classical Martial Arts: Historical and Philosophical Perspectives, Fifth Edition" (Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co.).
