Made famous through the paintings of Swiss artist Karl Bodmer, the North American expedition of German naturalist Prince Maximilian of Wied in 1832-34 was the first scientific exploration of the Missouri River's upper reaches since the epic journey of Lewis and Clark almost thirty years earlier. Maximilian's journal has never been presented fully in English - until now. This collector's-quality, oversized volume, the first of a three-volume set, draws on the Maximilian-Bodmer Collection at Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska.The North American Journals offer an incomparable view of the upper Missouri and its Native peoples at a pivotal moment in the history of the American West. This meticulous account, newly translated with extensive modern annotation, faithfully reproduces Maximilian's 110 drawings and watercolors as well as his own notes, asides, and appendices. Volume I, which covers May 1832 to April 1833, documents Maximilian's voyage to North America and his first encounters with Indians upon reaching the West. This is an essential resource for nineteenth-century western American history and a work of lasting value. This book is published with the assistance of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
This is a critical survey of the fiction and non-fiction written in Ireland during the key years between 1880 and 1920, or what has become known as the Irish Literary Renaissance. The book considers both the prose and the social and cultural forces working through it.
It is sometimes said that the philosophy of education is not a serious and coherent philosophical area of inquiry. John Wilson examines this argument, taking it as the starting point for his book. He believes that most 'philosophy of education' until now has been little more than the promotion of particular ideologies, and that progress can be made only by a more analytical approach. The central problems lies in establishing a few basic concepts, principles and categories and questions which will form the skeleton of the subject. He therefore outlines the nature of 'philosophy of education' and defines some of its major problems by examining key notions such as the value of education, the nature and implications of learning and what should be learned.

Though labelled Volume One, this is the second to be published (Nov 2007) of a new series to the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. "The Sandstone Outcrops of the Forest of Dean" by Martin Crocker appeared in 2006, and a new Symonds Yat guide, including also the central Forest quarries and the Cotswolds, should follow in two or three years' time.The 432 pages are printed in full colour throughout in the new Climbers' Club guidebook design, and the book is generously illustrated with maps, photodiagrams, and a wide selection of action photos.The guide has been compiled by a mixed team of experienced Wye Valley hands and younger activists, and the work has incorporated not only a radical reassessment of virtually all the climbs but also substantial cleaning and regearing of all those considered worthwhile. This operation was spearheaded by the GO Wall Restoration Project undertaken by Martin Crocker in late 2005 (funded by the Access and Conservation Trust, and The Climbers' Club Colin Kirkus Guidebook Fund).The Lower Wye crags (Wynd Cliff, Wintour's Leap, Ban-y-gor, Tintern Quarry, Shorn Cliff) now offer a huge variety of excellent climbing: trad routes in all grades from Moderate to E6 and sport climbs from F4 to F7c+. The sport climb descriptions are printed on a pale orange-coloured background for quick recognition, while the unrecommended and unrestored routes are set on a light grey background.A complete set of new path and crag-base maps for Wintour's Leap and Shorn Cliff has been surveyed by members of the team and redrawn inimitably by Don Sargeant. It is hoped that these will mitigate the notorious problems people sometimes experience locating the buttresses and climbs amongst the trees at these two crags.There is a brief historical overview in the usual slot after the Introduction, and there are a number of mini crag historicals printed on yellow panels throughout the book. However, the main and more detailed threads are woven into the first ascents list, now entitled Chronology (this latter may be a feature also in some future CC guides).The usual index of climbs is brightened up by the inclusion of thumbnail-type replicas of all the main action photos, and there is also an index of crags and crag features with replicas of the photodiagrams.

The 2008 financial crisis was a watershed moment which clearly influenced the public's perception of the role of 'finance' in society. Since 2008, a plethora of books and newspaper articles have been produced accusing the academic community of being unable to produce valid models which can accommodate those extreme events. This unique Handbook brings together leading practitioners and academics in the areas of banking, mathematics, and law to present original research on the key issues affecting financial modelling since the 2008 financial crisis. As well as exploring themes of distributional assumptions and efficiency the Handbook also explores how financial modelling can possibly be re-interpreted in light of the 2008 crisis.

This book describes the multi-axis substructure testing (MAST) system, a simulator developed at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, which provides state-of-the-art technology for large-scale hybrid testing of structures under realistic scenarios depicting extreme events. The book also demonstrates the responses of physical specimens while they serve as part of the virtual computer model of the full structure subjected to extreme dynamic forces. Experimental studies using the MAST system are expected to enhance design and construction methods and significantly improve the repair and retrofitting of structures endangered by natural disasters and man-made hazards, providing a direct benefit to society by improving public safety and the re silience of the built environment. An additional benefit is increased sustainability in the form of reduced direct and indirect economic losses and social and environmental impacts in the face of extreme events. This book will be of interest to researchers and advanced practitioners in the fields of structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics, including seismic qualification.

In June 2013, two classified National Security Agency (NSA) collection programs received increased media attention based on unauthorised disclosures of classified documents by a contractor working for the NSA. Under one program, the NSA collects domestic telephone metadata (ie: call records) in bulk. Under the other program, implemented under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the government collects the contents of electronic communications, including telephone calls and emails, where the target is reasonably believed to be a non-U.S. person located outside the United States. This book contains the results of an in-depth analysis of electronic communications collection under the program. It examines the program's development and operation, statutory basis, constitutional implications, and whether it strikes the right balance between national security and privacy and civil liberties. Recommendations for policy reforms are provided as well.

Before the outbreak of the Troubles, a typical firefighter's year might have included call-outs to chimney fires, the occasional house fire or road accident, and - even more rarely - a large factory or hay shed fire. While a firefighting career was always inherently exciting and risky, for most firefighters moments of high drama were anything but a daily occurrence. Then everything changed, and Northern Ireland's firefighters spent almost every day of the next thirty years racing to the scenes of atrocities, running towards the gravest danger. In this powerful book, men and women who served in the fire service during the Troubles tell their own stories in their own words - the events that have never left them, the victims they have never forgotten, the extraordinary bond between colleagues, the emotional burden and fallout from the job. The stories cover a uniquely challenging period for firefighters - full of exhilaration, fear, bravery and sorrow. What comes across is a universal desire to honour the uniform, to be brave when the need for courage is acute, and to be determined to cover your mate's back - no matter what.
Few historical chronicles are as informative and eloquent as the journal written by Prince Maximilian of Wied as a record of his journey into the North American interior in 1833, following the route Lewis and Clark had taken almost thirty years earlier. Maximilian's memorable descriptions of topography, Native peoples, and natural history were further brought to life through the now-familiar watercolors and sketches of Karl Bodmer, the young Swiss artist who accompanied him.
The first of the three volumes of the "North American Journals" recounts the prince's journey from Europe to St. Louis--then the edge of the frontier. Volume II vividly narrates his experiences on the upper Missouri and offers an unparalleled view of the region and the peoples native to it. In these pages, we accompany Maximilian as he travels far up the Missouri River to Fort McKenzie, a trading post some 2,500 river miles from St. Louis near what is now Fort Benton, Montana. The handsome, oversize volume not only reproduces this historic document but also features every one of Maximilian's illustrations--more than 200 in all, including nearly 50 in color--from the original journal now housed at Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska.
Maximilian recorded detailed observations of flora, fauna, geology, and climate. From his unique, scientifically trained perspective, he also undertook a serious field study of the cultures and languages of the central and northern Great Plains Indians he encountered. His journal contains important, firsthand descriptions of tribal social customs, religious rituals, material culture, and art, as well as an account of Native interactions with Euro-Americans engaged in the then-burgeoning fur trade.
