This volume documents exhaustively for the first time Edmond Charles Genet's dramatic challenges to American neutrality and Jefferson's diplomatic and political responses. After welcoming Genet's arrival as the harbinger of closer relations between the American and French republics, Jefferson becomes increasingly distressed by the French minister's defiance of the Washington administration's ban on the outfitting of French privateers in American ports, the enlistment of American citizens in French service, and the exercise of admiralty jurisdiction by French consuls in American ports. Although the Supreme Court declines to advise the executive branch on neutrality questions that Jefferson prepares with the President and the Cabinet, he helps to formulate a set of neutrality rules to meet Genet's challenge. Unable to convince the impetuous French envoy to adopt a more moderate course, Jefferson works in the Cabinet to bring about Genet's recall so as to preserve friendly relations with France and minimize political damage to the Republican party, in which he takes a more active role to prevent the Federalists from capitalizing on Genet's defiance of the President. Grappling with the threat of war with Spain, Jefferson involves himself equivocally in a diplomatically explosive plan by Genet to liberate Louisiana from Spanish rule. In this volume Jefferson also plays a decisive role in resolving a dispute over the design of the Capitol and plans agricultural improvements at Monticello in preparation for his retirement to private life.

In July 1864, Union General William T. Sherman ordered the arrest and deportation of more than 400 women and children from the villages of Roswell and New Manchester, Georgia. Branded as traitors for their work in the cotton mills that supplied much needed material to the Confederacy, these civilians were shipped to cities in the North (already crowded with refugees) and left to fend for themselves. This work details the little known story of the hardships these women and children endured before and--most especially--after they were forcibly taken from their homes. Beginning with the founding of Roswell, it examines the pre-Civil War circumstances that created this class of women. The main focus is on what befell the women at the hands of Sherman's army and what they faced once they reached such states as Illinois and Indiana. An appendix details the roll of political prisoners from Sweetwater (New Manchester).

The Papers of George Washington, a grant-funded project, was established in 1968 at the University of Virginia, under the joint auspices of the University and the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union, to publish a comprehensive edition of Washington's correspondence. Letters written to Washington as well as letters and documents written by him are being published in the complete edition that will consist of approximately ninety volumes. The work is now (2011) more than two-thirds complete. The edition is supported financially by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, the University of Virginia, and gifts from private foundations and individuals. Today there are copies of over 135,000 Washington documents in the project's document room. This is one of the richest collections of American historical manuscripts extant. There is almost no facet of research on life and enterprise in the late colonial and early national periods that will not be enhanced by material from these documents. The publication of Washington's papers will make this source material available not only to scholars but to all Americans interested in the founding of their nation. - Publisher.

Kashmir after 2019: Completing the Partition studies the post-2019 Kashmir situation, using an interdisciplinary conceptual framework by employing the kite methodology to analyse law-related conflict scenarios, facilitating a rigorous stakeholder analysis. The unfinished Partition of the Indian subcontinent on 14/15 August 1947 left Jammu and Kashmir hanging between visions of azadi (freedom) and competing territorial claims of India and Pakistan. This limbo, causing mounting costs over time, ultimately brought intolerable sufferings to the diverse Kashmiri people. The book is a passionate search for a peaceful future, looking ahead to post-2019 arrangements. It provides a historically grounded contextual analysis to explain why, by 2019, the time had finally become ripe for allowing India and Pakistan as the respective ‘other’ to keep the parts of Kashmir they have each been holding since 1947. This future-oriented and solution-driven edited book offers a diversity-conscious theoretical framework—the kite model—which suggests completing the process of Partition as necessary mental growth of identity formation.

Creation Ex Nihilo is about science and faith, the secular view on the one hand, and the Jewish-religious view on the other. Professor Benjamin Fain, the renowned physicist and Soviet refusenik, here adds his contribution to the literature showing that there is no contradiction between science and Judaism. In a scholarly yet readable philosophical meditation, Fain addresses the mind and soul; science, its character and cognizance; the evolution of life and divine providence; and God s omnipotence and omniscience versus humans freedom of will. Fain demonstrates how the human self with its soul, desires, and emotions is linked to the infinite divine mind. In this world of interplay between divine providence and free will, there is a place for human creativity; new things, including science, are created ex nihilo. This book demonstrates conclusively that not only do science and Judaism not collide, they complement each other in helping us to comprehend the world we live in.

The title of our volume refers to what is well described by the following two quota tions:"Godcreated man in his own image"l and "Man creates God in his own image."2 Our approach to symmetry is subjective, and the term "personal" symmetry reflects this approach in our discussion of selected scientific events. We have chosen six icons to symbolize six areas: Kepler for modeling, Fuller for new molecules, Pauling for helical structures, Kitaigorodskii for packing, Bernal for quasicrystals, and Curie for dissymmetry. For the past three decades we have been involved in learning, thinking, speaking, and writing about symmetry. This involvement has augmented our principal activities in molecular structure research. Our interest in symmetry had started with a simple fascination and has evolved into a highly charged personal topic for us. At the start of this volume, we had had several authored and edited symmetry related books behind 3 us. We owe a debt of gratitude to the numerous people whose interviews are quoted 4 in this volume. We very much appreciate the kind and gracious cooperation of Edgar J. Applewhite (Washington, DC), Lawrence S. Bartell (University of Michigan), R.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Medizin - Neoplasmen, Onkologie, Note: 1,5, , Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Ernährungslehre, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Bei Krebserkrankungen entstehen - aufgrund genetischer Veränderungen - aus gesunden Zellen bösartige Zellen. Diese genetischen Veränderungen kommen zustande durch mutagen wirkende Substanzen und Zellgifte, die die DNA der Zelle schädigen. Dabei spielt die Ernährung eine bedeutende Rolle, wobei es sowohl Risiko- als auch Schutzfaktoren gibt, die teilweise je nach Krebsart variieren. Vor dem Hintergrund der Entstehungsphasen der Zellwucherung wird das Ernährungsverhalten vor, während und nach einer Krebserkrankung näher beleuchtet. Anhand von epidemiologischen Migrationsstudien lässt sich eindrucksvoll der Zusammenhang zwischen der Krebserkrankungsrate und den unterschiedlichen Ernährungsgewohnheiten der jeweiligen Populationen verdeutlichen. Ein Beispiel dafür ist, dass ein für Japaner übliches niedriges Kolonkarzinomrisiko bei einer Emigration in die USA auf die dort übliche Prävalenzrate steigt. Im Gegensatz dazu sinkt die bei Japanern hohe Inzidenz des Magenkarzinoms ab. Das heißt: Ernährung und Umweltfaktoren spielen bei Krebserkrankungen eine wichtige Rolle. Nach Schätzungen sind (je nach Krebstyp) 10-70% der Erkrankungsfälle durch die Ernährung beeinflusst. Somit kann durch richtige Ernährung und einen gesunden Lebensstil das Risiko einer Erkrankung gesenkt werden (Biesalski et al).

In The Ontario Cancer Institute Ernest McCulloch discusses how the institute, dedicated to the goal of reducing the burden of cancer, continuously strove for excellence and shows how both original and collaborative work were encouraged within a supportive environment. To achieve this goal the institute divided its operation into four strands: two of the strands were the research areas – the study of advanced radiation therapy and biology, which worked separatively but cooperatively; a third was patient care; and the fourth element was leadership, provided by the clinical chiefs, the heads of the research divisions, and the administration, in particular the institute's first administrator, John Law. Together these strands helped create a philosophy that made the Ontario Cancer Institute unique and provided the basis for its national and international success. Essential to these successes was a new graduate department, Medical Biophysics, based in the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies. This department, which provided an innovative, research-based doctoral and masters program, meant that the OCI could accurately be described as a centre for cancer treatment, research, and education. McCulloch describes how the first quantitative assay for stem cells played a major role in bringing OCI research to the international stage as well as influencing other science and much of the clinical thinking in the Institute. Other major advances that brought international recognition have been the identification of the mechanisms that allow cancer cells to resist death from the effects of a variety of different tumours and the isolation of the gene that encodes the T cell receptor, a critical part of the immune apparatus for dealing with foreign cells and viruses. McCulloch also details how lack of space to meet growing demands was a continuing source of frustration and disagreement, and how sometimes serious interpersonal problems hindered the forward thrust of development. Describing these events as well as institute's successes, he provides an insight into the history of Canada's premier cancer research centre.

Practical Histochemistry Second Edition J. Chayen and L. Bitensky Unit of Cellular Pharmacology and Toxicology, Robens Institute, University of Surrey, UK Whereas in the past histochemistry has been primarily a way of colouring cells and tissue sections, over the last fifteen years it has evolved into a precise and quantitative form of microbiochemistry. New techniques and reagents have been developed which now form the basis of such diverse procedures as highly sensitive bioassays of polypeptides and the monitoring of open heart surgery and heart transplantation. Cell function is left unimpaired by ‘hidden reagents’ which do not release their active moieties until triggered by the products of biochemical reactions, and new methods prevent the loss of soluble active groups from cells and tissues even during prolonged reaction times. The second edition of this highly successful book has been extensively revised and updated to give an authoritative and practical account of the techniques of traditional and modern histochemistry. It conveys the sense of excitement that has been generated in developing a rigorous biochemistry that can be performed at the cellular level within a tissue.
