Ocean Science and the British Cold War State By Samuel A. Robinson

English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 287 Pages | ISBN : 3319730959 | 4.19 MB

This book focuses on the activities of the scientific staff of the British National Institute of Oceanography during the Cold War. Revealing how issues such as intelligence gathering, environmental surveillance, the identification of ‘enemy science’, along with administrative practice informed and influenced the Institute’s Cold War program. In turn, this program helped shape decisions taken by Government, military and the civil service towards science in post-war Britain. This was not simply a case of government ministers choosing to patronize particular scientists, but a relationship between politics and science that profoundly impacted on the future of ocean science in Britain.

Life, Death, and Growing Up on the Western Front by Anthony Fletcher

A powerful account of life and loss in the Great War, as told by British soldiers in their letters home
This book was inspired by the author’s discovery of an extraordinary cache of letters from a soldier who was killed on the Western Front during the First World War. The soldier was his grandfather, and the letters had been tucked away, unread and unmentioned for many decades. Intrigued by the heartbreak and history of these family letters, Fletcher sought out the correspondence of other British soldiers who had volunteered for the fight against Germany. This resulting volume offers a vivid account of the physical and emotional experiences of seventeen British soldiers whose letters survive. Drawn from different regiments, social backgrounds, and areas of England and Scotland, they include twelve officers and five ordinary “Tommies.”
The book explores the training, journey to France, fear, shellshock, and life in the trenches as well as the leisure, love, and home leave the soldiers dreamed of. Fletcher discusses the psychological responses of 17- and 18-year-old men facing appalling realities and considers the particular pressures on those who survived their fallen comrades. While acknowledging the horror and futility the soldiers of the Great War experienced, the author shows another side to the story, focusing new attention on the loyal comradeship, robust humor, and strong morale that uplifted the men at the Front and created a powerful bond among them.

Father executed. Inheritance seized. Scotland under the heel of a brutal conqueror. Young James Douglas can only stand helpless as the Scottish patriot, William Wallace, is executed. Yet, he has one hope in the rightful king of the Scots, Robert Bruce. James vows to fight for the man he believes can lead the fight against English tyranny. Robert Bruce is soon a fugitive, king in name only. Scotland is occupied, Scottish resistance crushed, the woman James loves a captive. Only he believes their cause is not lost. With driving determination, he blazes a path in blood and violence, in cunning and ruthlessness as he wages a desperate guerrilla war against the English. James knows he risks sharing Wallace’s fate, but what he truly fears is that he has become as merciless as the conqueror he fights.

Ellen Chesler’s 1992 biography of Margaret Sanger is acclaimed as definitive and is widely used and cited by scholars and activists alike in the fields of women’s health and reproductive rights.
Chesler’s substantive new Afterword considers how Sanger’s life and work hold up in light of subsequent developments, such as U.S. Supreme Court cases challenging the constitutional doctrine of privacy and international definitions of reproductive health as an essential human right.
