The Bedrock of Opinion

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Bedrock of Opinion by Göran Sundqvist Book Resume:

The issue of nuclear waste is about managing some of the most dangerous material ever to exist. This has to be done safely, and in a way that remains safe for many thousands of years. To realize safe disposal, satisfying bedrock conditions are needed as well as people willing to accept disposal in their own community. In most countries this kind of place has been difficult to locate. This book is the first of its kind, reporting a study which analyses in detail the highly controversial decisions on how to finally dispose of nuclear waste in Sweden, a country considered a forerunner in nuclear waste management. The siting process is traced, as are its connections both back in time and to the global community. From the perspective of science and technology studies the study contributes to the understanding of regulation of controversial technical issues in modern societies.

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The History of India, as Told by Its Own Historians by Henry Miers Elliot,John Dowson Book Resume:

This extensive eight-volume work was first published between 1867 and 1877 by the linguist John Dowson (1820-81) from the manuscripts of the colonial administrator and scholar Sir Henry Miers Elliot (1808-53). Before his death, hoping to bolster British colonial ideology, Elliot had intended to evaluate scores of Arabic and Persian historians of India, believing that his translations would demonstrate the violence of the Muslim rulers and 'make our native subjects more sensible of the immense advantages accruing to them under the mildness and the equity of our rule'. Volume 8 addresses criticism of the previously published volumes, and includes additions and corrections to them. The volume also contains extracts of numerous additional histories covering the end of the Mughal Empire from Muhammad Shah (1702-1748) to the establishment of British political and military dominance in India in the mid-nineteenth century.

American History Told by Contemporaries

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

American History Told by Contemporaries by Albert Bushnell Hart Book Resume:

The ground covered by this volume includes many stirring events. It begins with the Mexican War and the consequent renewal of the slavery contest, and it leads through the exciting AFifties. Then comes the Civil War which is treated in detail; on the causes, conditions, and progress of that titanic struggle, the participants, both civil and military, speak with directness and cogency. The troubled and confused Reconstruction period is illustrated by extracts which bring out the main events and scenes; there is no attempt to restate the wearisome debates, or to bring out the details of party and personal controversy. Our forefathers did interesting things and left entertaining records. The story of our nation=s development is clearer for the suggestions made by these writers. They are prejudiced; they see but a part of what is going on; they leave many gaps; but, after all, they tell the story.The collection was selected and edited in 1900 by Albert Bushnell Hart, Professor of History at Harvard University, and a well-respected and published scholar.

Pioneers

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pioneers by Larry Allen Denham Book Resume:

PIONEERS is a gymnastics fable about living each day like it's your last! Patrick Goodman is the captain of the Pioneer Gymnastics team and the best gymnast that Pioneer has ever produced; however, it will take much more from the Kennedy High senior if he is going to get his Pioneer team to Coach Jim Lowery's goal of becoming National Team Champions. Although his team has experience, it will require a leap of faith from Patrick and his teammates to raise their gymnastics to the next level in his final season as a Pioneer. Chris McClure doesn't quite fit the Pioneer mold. Since moving to Knoxville from California, he has found a difficult time fitting in with his new teammates. However, Chris has what every gymnast wants; talent, courage, and a knack for living on the edge. But, Chris also has a dark secret, one that could jeopardize the success of the Pioneers. Within the walls of Pioneer Gymnastics, seven young men shed blood, sweat, and tears, to follow their coach and their dreams as they risk their necks on a daily basis in an attempt to become the first gymnastics team from Tennessee to be crowned national champions. Although there are many roadblocks in their way, their greatest obstacles lie within themselves.

Base Ball Pioneers, 1850-1870

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Base Ball Pioneers, 1850-1870 by Peter Morris,,William J. Ryczek,Jan Finkel Book Resume:

By 1871, the popularity of baseball had spread so thoroughly across America that one writer observed, “It is as much our national game as cricket is that of the English.” While major league teams and athletes that played after this prophetic statement was made have been exhaustively documented and analyzed, those that led the game during its pioneer phase from 1850 to 1870 have received relatively little attention. In this welcome work, leading historians of early baseball provide profiles of more than fifty clubs and their players, from legendary teams such as the Red Stockings of Cincinnati and the Nationals of Washington to forgotten nines like the Pecatonica (Illinois) Base Ball Club and the Morning Star Club of St. Louis. Engaging narratives bring these long-ago clubs back to life, stimulating more research on this fascinating era and creating a standard reference source for all who study America’s national pastime.

Minds behind the Brain : A History of the Pioneers and Their Discoveries

Told By The Pioneers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Minds behind the Brain : A History of the Pioneers and Their Discoveries by Department of Psychology Washington University Stanley Finger Professor Book Resume:

Attractively illustrated with over a hundred halftones and drawings, this volume presents a series of vibrant profiles that trace the evolution of our knowledge about the brain. Beginning almost 5000 years ago, with the ancient Egyptian study of "the marrow of the skull," Stanley Finger takes us on a fascinating journey from the classical world of Hippocrates, to the time of Descartes and the era of Broca and Ramon y Cajal, to modern researchers such as Sperry. Here is a truly remarkable cast of characters. We meet Galen, a man of titanic ego and abrasive disposition, whose teachings dominated medicine for a thousand years; Vesalius, a contemporary of Copernicus, who pushed our understanding of human anatomy to new heights; Otto Loewi, pioneer in neurotransmitters, who gave the Nazis his Nobel prize money and fled Austria for England; and Rita Levi-Montalcini, discoverer of nerve growth factor, who in war-torn Italy was forced to do her research in her bedroom. For each individual, Finger examines the philosophy, the tools, the books, and the ideas that brought new insights. Finger also looks at broader topics--how dependent are researchers on the work of others? What makes the time ripe for discovery? And what role does chance or serendipity play? And he includes many fascinating background figures as well, from Leonardo da Vinci and Emanuel Swedenborg to Karl August Weinhold--who claimed to have reanimated a dead cat by filling its skull with silver and zinc--and Mary Shelley, whose Frankenstein was inspired by such experiments. Wide ranging in scope, imbued with an infectious spirit of adventure, here are vivid portraits of giants in the field of neuroscience--remarkable individuals who found new ways to think about the machinery of the mind.

During his later years, he wrote his memoirs, presented here for the first time in half a century.
