Beyond the nation-state : the reconstruction of nationhood and citizenship by David Kamens( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book examines the effects of education in creating global citizens who share a world culture. This occurs within an international system that still remains decentralized, composed of independent nation-states as major actors. Prof. Kamens argues that as globalization intensifies, this system of nation-states becomes more saturated and dense with structure. Intensified globalization has produced a world society, thanks to the spread of global capitalism, education, democracy and bureaucracy. The upshot is that world culture travels quickly and produces 'recipes' for the development of an 'imagined community' that has increasing commonalities across societies. The book examines the role of education in diffusing such attitudes and models, as global citizens confront national institutions

Cratering in Greenland icecap snow by John A Conway( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Predicting cratering effects from explosions in various media and with various charge geometries is a primary purpose of nuclear weapons research. This report deals with crater formation resulting from high-explosive surface bursts in a snow medium. The test program for which crater data were obtained consisted of nine 256-pound TNT charges, one 500-pound C-4 charge, one 1,860-pound C-4 charge, and two 4,180-pound C-4 charges. All were surface bursts fired on the Greenland icecap. Results show that craters produced in snow are larger than those produced in other media, presumably due to greater vaporization and compaction of material. These craters have a characteristic wide, shallow appearance; it is believed that pseudoelastic rebound is the mechanism that diminishes crater depth. Analysis of the crater data shows that scaling exponents for craters in snow are lower than cube-root or other scaling exponents generally used for craters in soil or rock media. (Author)
