Insects at low temperature by Richard E Lee( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of insects at low temperature is a comparatively new field. Only recently has insect cryobiology begun to mature, as research moves from a descriptive approach to a search for underlying mechanisms at diverse levels of organization ranging from the gene and cell to ecological and evolutionary relationships. Knowledge of insect responses to low temperature is crucial for understanding the biology of insects living in seasonally varying habitats as well as in polar regions. It is not possible to precisely define low temperature. In the tropics exposure to 10-15°C may induce chill coma or death, whereas some insects in temperate and polar regions remain active and indeed even able to fly at O°C or below. In contrast, for persons interested in cryopreservation, low temperature may mean storage in liquid nitrogen at - 196°C. In the last decade, interest in adaptations of invertebrates to low temperature has risen steadily. In part, this book had its origins in a symposium on this subject that was held at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America in Louisville, Kentucky, USA in December, 1988. However, the emergence and growth of this area has also been strongly influenced by an informal group of investigators who met in a series of symposia held in Oslo, Norway in 1982, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in 1985 and in Cambridge, England in 1988. Another is scheduled for Binghamton, New York, USA (1990)

The longue durée and World-Systems analysis by Fernand Braudel( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his Pathbreaking Article "History and the Social Sciences: The Longue Durée" Fernand Braudel raised a call for the social sciences to overcome their disciplinary isolation from one another. Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the article's publication, the contributors to this volume do not just acknowledge their debt to the past; they also bear witness to how the crisis Braudel recognized a half century ago is no less of a crisis today. The contributions included here, from scholars in history, sociology, and geography, reflect the spirit and practice of the intellectual agenda espoused by Braudel, coming together around the concept of the longue durée. Indeed, they are evidence of how the groundbreaking research originally championed-by Braudel has been carried forward in world-systems analysis for a more socially relevant understanding of the planet and its future possibilities. The book concludes with a new translation of Braudels original article by famed sociologist Immanuel Wallerstein

Knowledge matters : the structures of knowledge and crisis of the modern world-system by Richard E Lee( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic changes and political changes which emerged with the modern capitalist world-economy were accompanied in the sociocultural domain by changes in the structures of knowledge. These included the hierarchical separation of the realm of facts from that of values, institutionalied More...as a division between the sciences and the humanities. The social sciences responded to contradictions inherent in this structure over the nineteenth century in producing knowledge on which policy decisions could be based. The problems of the contemporary period indicate we are in a long-term, structural crisis. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches through which social analysts and observers alike seek to understand the world. Since the 1960s, developments in the field of knowledge, especially two movements-complexity studies in the natural sciences and cultural studies in the humanities-have contested the naturalied, essentialist boundaries separating the sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. The primary rationale for this work is to recognie the inseparable whole composed of the material structures of the world and the structures of knowledge that govern what actions may be deemed legitimate and effective. Knowledge Matters discusses what actions will actually be undertaken by social agents, and what such an approach means for an analysis of the present situation in terms of imagining and evaluating possible futures. Richard E. Lee is professor of sociology at Binghamton University where his teachings focus on historical social science, the cultural construction of inequalities, structures of knowledge, cultural studies and science studies, and World-Systems Analysis. In addition he is the director of the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems and Civiliations
