The making of modern Colombia : a nation in spite of itself by David Bushnell( )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 2,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colombia's status as the fourth largest nation in Latin America and third most populous—as well as its largest exporter of such disparate commodities as emeralds, books, processed cocaine, and cut flowers—makes this, the first history of Colombia written in English, a much-needed book. It tells the remarkable story of a country that has consistently defied modern Latin American stereotypes—a country where military dictators are virtually unknown, where the political left is congenitally weak, and where urbanization and industrialization have spawned no lasting populist movement.There is more to Colombia than the drug trafficking and violence that have recently gripped the world's attention. In the face of both cocaine wars and guerrilla conflict, the country has maintained steady economic growth as well as a relatively open and democratic government based on a two-party system. It has also produced an impressive body of art and literature.David Bushnell traces the process of state-building in Colombia from the struggle for independence, territorial consolidation, and reform in the nineteenth century to economic development and social and political democratization in the twentieth. He also sheds light on the modern history of Latin America as a whole
El Libertador : writings of Simón Bolívar by Simón Bolívar( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 2,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"General Simón Bolívar was the leading hero of the Latin American independence movement. His victories over Spain won independence for Bolivia, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Bolívar became Columbia's first president in 1819. In 1822, he became dictator of Peru. Upper Peru became a separate state, which was named Bolivia in Bolívar's honor, in 1825. The constitution, which he drew up for Bolivia, is one of his most important political pronouncements. Today he is remembered throughout South America, and in Venezuela and Bolivia his birthday is a national holiday. Although Bolívar never prepared a systematic treatise, his essays, proclamations, and letters constitute some of the most eloquent writing not of the independence period alone, but of any period in Latin American history. His analysis of the region's fundamental problems, ideas on political organization and proposals for Latin American integration are relevant and widely read today, even among Latin Americans of all countries and of all political persuasions."--Provided by publisher

Space biology; the human factors in space flight by James Stephen Hanrahan( Book )

21 editions published between 1960 and 1962 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As man projects himself into the strange environment of the universe beyond the life-supporting atmosphere of his native planet, he will encounter physical and psychological forces alien to his experience. The success of his personal conquest of these extra-terrestrial regions will depend in large measure upon his ability to identify these hazards and to neutralize them with protective devices. Space biology, in this pioneer generation of man's exploration of the limitless vertical frontier, is generally confined in definition to the study of these human factors of space flight. This limited use of the term is incorporated into the title and content of this volume. This is not a textbook of space biology, in the sense of offering only a description of present knowledge concerning the physiological aspects of manned space flight. Instead it is an historical survey of research accomplishments from the earliest times which have led to our present state of sophistication in this revolutionary field. In addition to presenting the highlights of our present understanding of space-flight problems, ranging from waste disposal to weightlessness, it seeks to offer some indication of the steps by which we have reached our current level of accomplishment. More than this, it attempts to identify the individual scientists, both in the United States and abroad, who have made important contributions to this progress. - Foreword

The beginnings of research in space biology at the Air Force Missile Development Center, Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, 1946-1952 by David Bushnell( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Man-High balloon flights of 1957--the second of which on 19-20 August carried Major David G. Simons aloft for more than thirty-two hours and to a space-equivalent height of over 100,000 feet--dramatically emphasize the varied mission performed by the Air Force Missile Development Center. All projects at this Center are related in some way to progress in the field of guided missiles and space vehicles, but by no means are all concerned with the actual development and testing of such objects. Project Man High, for example, was designed and sponsored by the Center's Aeromedical Field Laboratory to explore the high-altitude environment in which men, missiles and high-performance aircraft will operate, rather than to test missiles themselves. Moreover Man-High was not an isolated project but was the culmination of a history of investigations of physical and biophysical conditions of the extreme upper atmosphere and the borders of space which began at Holloman Air Force Base more than ten years before
