Martha Brae's two histories : European expansion and Caribbean culture-building in Jamaica by Jean Besson( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on historical research and more than thirty years of anthropological fieldwork, this wide-ranging study underlines the importance of Caribbean cultures for anthropology, which has generally marginalized Europe's oldest colonial sphere. Located at the gateway to the New World in the plantation heartlands of the Americas, the settlement of Martha Brae, Jamaica, has witnessed the unfolding of two distinct, yet interrelated histories. Exploring the significance of Martha Brae as a European-Caribbean slaving port in the eighteenth century, Jean Besson simultaneously uncovers the neglected tale of Martha Brae's gradual appropriation by ex-slaves and its transformation into an African-Caribbean free village, bringing the story right up into the present day. Central to this transformation is the system of "family land", which interrelates with kinship, community, economy, cosmology, gender, oral tradition, and state law. Besson shows that this customary land tenure is not a passive survival from either Africa or Europe, as conventional theories contend, but a dynamic creole institution created by Caribbean people in response to European-American land monopoly and cultural dominance. This perspective advances debates on African-American cultural history and the anthropological study of culture."--Page 4 de la couverture

Contribution à l'étude du fluage du dioxyde d'uranium : Rôle des activateurs de croissance cristalline = Contribution to the study of the creep of uranium dioxide.role of grain growth promoters by Christelle Vivant Duguay( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'accroissement des performances du combustible nucléaire inclut 1' amélioration des propriétés plastiques du dioxyde d'uranium U02, en vue de réduire la contrainte appliquée par la pastille à la gaine lors d'une rampe de puissance. L'objectif de ces travaux est d'identifier et de formuler les effets produits par la nature et la concentration d'additifs de structure corindon, Cr20 3 ou Al20 3, qui sont des activateurs de la croissance cristalline de U02• L'analyse bibliographique établit que le titre en oxygène, la taille des grains ou la porosité affectent de façon notable les propriétés mécaniques du dioxyde d'uranium. Par contre, l'effet du dopage a été très peu étudié. Les échantillons préparés sont déformés par compression uni axiale. Dans le cas de uo2 standard non dopé, deux mécanismes de fluage prépondérants distincts interviennent suivant le niveau de la contrainte : un fluage par diffusion aux joints de grains de type Coble pour des contraintes en deçà de la contrainte de transition et un fluage par les dislocations au-delà. Les produits dopés présentent une microstructure à gros grains qui n'autorise qu'un fluage par les dislocations. Dans le domaine de contraintes et de températures exploré, le dopage améliore de façon significative les propriétés viscoplastiques d'U02. Cet effet commun des dopants se traduit en compression à vitesse constante par un abaissement de la contrainte d'écoulement et en fluage par une augmentation de la vitesse de déformation en régime stationnaire. Le dopage avec Cr20 3 s'avère le plus efficace. Le bénéfice apparent du dopage provient du gain apporté par l'augmentation de la taille de grains du combustible mais il est compensé par l'effet durcissant apporté par le dopant. La loi de fluage d'U02 standard a été modifiée pour intégrer les effets du dopant, en faisant intervenir soit la concentration, soit la taille de grains
