Commercial Space Exploration: Ethics, Policy and Governance

Commercial Space Exploration: Ethics, Policy and Governance by Dr. Jai GalliottNot since man set foot on the moon over four decades ago has there been such passion and excitement about space exploration. This enthusiasm and eagerness has been spurred on by the fact that for the first time since the very beginning of the space age, space travel is no longer limited to an elite group of highly trained and well-disciplined military officers and test pilots. Instead, we must understand that the possibility of commercial space travel is already on our horizon and that it comes with a number of significant practical and moral challenges. Our level of scientific development and...

India's Green Revolution: Economic Gains and Political Costs

India's Green Revolution: Economic Gains and Political Costs by Francine R. Frankel

The success of the agricultural policy adopted in 1965 has given India the hope of escaping from its circle of poverty. At the same time the increased rate of economic development seems to have exacerbated social tensions and accentuated disparities that may eventually undermine the foundations of rural political stability.

Blue-Collar Stratification: Autoworkers in Four Countries

Blue-Collar Stratification: Autoworkers in Four Countries by William Humbert Form

In studying the impact of industry on class organization, social scientists have assumed that the effects of technological advance increase with time and that, as technology molds, dehumanizes, and alienates workers, the pressure mounts to change the system through political action. William H. Form tests these assumptions in his study.

The author considers whether workers have more to do with one another as societies industrialize, whether they become more involved in organizations, and whether these involvements become distinctively similar, creating an organizational basis for a solidary working-class...

Iron and Steel in the German Inflation, 1916-1923

Iron and Steel in the German Inflation, 1916-1923 by Gerald D. Feldman

This study explains how businessmen in the German iron and steel industry managed their enterprises, dealt with their customers, and acted in their relations with state and society during a period of war, revolution, and economic crisis. Because this industry occupied a central position in Germany during the inflation, the author's investigation illuminates certain crucial aspects of the Weimar Republic that have hitherto been relatively unexplored.

The author explains how heavy industry—and particularly the iron and steel industry-successfully took advantage of shortages of raw materials and...

The Standard-Vacuum Oil Company and United States East Asian Policy, 1933-1941

The Standard-Vacuum Oil Company and United States East Asian Policy, 1933-1941 by Irvine H. Anderson Jr.

Oil was a basic source of conflict between the United States and Japan. This book examines the role played by the Standard-Vacuum Oil Company in the crisis that led to Pearl Harbor.

Industrial Concentration and Economic Power in Pakistan

Industrial Concentration and Economic Power in Pakistan by Lawrence J. White

Although observers of the Pakistani economy are well aware that a small number of family groups, popularly called "the twenty-two families," dominates the industrial structure of the country, the actual effects of this concentration of economic power on income distribution and on other areas of widespread social and political concern arc less well understood. In this important work, Lawrence J. White uses the concepts of industrial organization analysis to achieve an overall view of the problems stemming from the marked industrial concentration in Pakistan.

After discussing the economic effects...

Four Thousand Hooks: A True Story of Fishing and Coming of Age on the High Seas of Alaska

Four Thousand Hooks: A True Story of Fishing and Coming of Age on the High Seas of Alaska by Dean J. Adams

As Four Thousand Hooks opens, an Alaskan fishing schooner is sinking. It is the summer of 1972, and the sixteen-year-old narrator is at the helm. Backtracking from the gripping prologue, Dean Adams describes how he came to be a crew member on the Grant and weaves a tale of adventure that reads like a novel--with drama, conflict, and resonant portrayals of halibut fishing, his ragtag shipmates, maritime Alaska, and the ambiguities of family life.

At sea, the Grant's crew teach Dean the daily tasks of baiting thousands of longline hooks and handling the catch, and on shore they lead him through...
