The encyclopedia of the Victorian world : a reader's companion to the people, places, events, and everyday life of the Victorian era by Melinda Corey( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 859 libraries worldwide
The Encyclopedia of the Victorian World is the first encyclopedia to cover the entire world during a period of astounding achievement and change: the reign of Great Britain's Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901. While focused on Britain, the book's scope is universal, with entries that represent nearly every nation and region and every field of human endeavor - politics, art, literature, music, science, philosophy, war, business, recreation, architecture, design - as well as everyday life. Here you'll find not only familiar names like Charles Dickens and Benjamin Disraeli but also lesser-known people like scientist Joseph Lister, whose name now adorns mouthwash bottles, or the Earl of Cardigan, whose name will be forever be associated with the Charge of the Light Brigade and the button-down sweater. From cholera to colonies, Lincoln to Lourdes, and Punch to the Punjab, The Encyclopedia of the Victorian world is the one-stop guide to the Nineteenth century
Climate : the force that shapes our world and the future of life on earth by George Ochoa( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and Swedish and held by 593 libraries worldwide
"Climate describes the marvelous and complex workings of Earth's climate systems, from its primordial atmosphere to today's extreme changes in weather, ecology, and environment. Climate systems around the world are being transformed by rising temperatures. Every continent is undergoing alarming changes: melting glaciers, deadly droughts, severe storms, and loss of habitat for plants and animals - and humans. Greenhouse gases heat up the atmosphere, affecting crops and grazing lands, and unleashing deadly diseases. As polar ice caps melt, sea levels rise. Islands become submerged, coastal settlements flooded. Climate addresses the most pressing questions, such as how much carbon dioxide can the atmosphere safely hold? How high will sea levels rise? How will civilization cope with increasingly dangerous weather incidents? Climate will help us understand what must be done today for the sake of our planet tomorrow."--Jacket
