The effects of nuclear weapons by United States( Book )

94 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When 'The Effects of Atomic Weapons' was published in 1950, the explosive energy yields of the fission bombs available at that time were equivalent to some thousands of tons (i.e., kilotons) of TNT. With the development of thermonuclear (fusion) weapons, having energy yields in the range of millions of tons (i.e., megatons) of TNT, a new presentation, entitled 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, ' was issued in 1957. A completely revised edition was published in 1962 and this was reprinted with a few changes early in 1964. Since the last version of 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons' was prepared, much new information has become available concerning nuclear weapons effects. This has come in part from the series of atmospheric tests, including several at very high altitudes, conducted in the Pacific Ocean area in 1962. In addition, laboratory studies, theoretical calculations, and computer simulations have provided a better understanding of the various effects. Within the limits imposed by security requirements, the new information has been incorporated in the present edition. In particular, attention may be called to a new chapter on the electromagnetic pulse. The material is arranged in a manner that should permit the general reader to obtain a good understanding of the various topics without having to cope with the more technical details. Most chapters are thus in two parts: the first part is written at a fairly low technical level whereas the second treats some of the more technical and mathematical aspects. The presentation allows the reader to omit any or all of the latter sections without loss of continuity."--Preface

Nuclear reactor engineering by Samuel Glasstone( Book )

92 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic reference combines broad, yet in-depth coverage of nuclear engineering principles with practical descriptions of their application in the design and operation of nuclear power plants. Published in a two-volume format to accommodate readers' specific interests, the first volume concentrates on the fundamentals of nuclear engineering, while the second explores applications and more advanced topics. In the second volume, Alexander Sesonske draws on his extensive experience in nuclear engineering to investigate state-of-the-art approaches to reactor systems, including computer analysis, assisting the reader in exploiting the potential of information technology in nuclear engineering. We explore energy transport and fuel management and their roles in cost-effective plant design and operation. Sesonske discusses the environmental, health, and safety concerns that are crucial to the continued success and expansion of nuclear power, illustrating risk analysis methods that facilitate reliable assessment and control of hazards. The book also details current and potential innovations in plant design, examining challenges likely to be faced by the nuclear power industry in meeting future energy demands. investigating topics such as reactor systems, cost-effective fuel management, environmental issues, and the design of future plants

An introduction to electrochemistry by Samuel Glasstone( Book )

57 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The object of this book is to provide an introduction to electrochemistry in its present state of development. An attempt has been made to explain the fundamentals of the subject as it stands today, devoting little or no space to the consideration of theories or arguments that have been discarded or greatly modified. There have been four developments in the two decades prior to the writing of this book that have had an important influence on electrochemistry. They are the activity concept, the interionic attraction theory, the proton-transfer theory of acids and bases, and the consideration of electrode reactions as rate processes

In a part of North Africa where, within miles, the backdrop can change dramatically from snow-blasted mountains to wind-scoured dunes live the Berber people of the Atlas Mountains. In the third book of her trilogy on African women, world-renowned photojournalist Margaret Courtney-Clarke examines the difficult lives and remarkable arts of Berber women. As modern times and modern warfare in Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia have encroached on their centuries-old traditions, Berber women have begun to give up the old ways. Imazighen: The Vanishing Traditions of Berber Women is a record of a quickly disappearing way of life. As in her earlier books, Ndebele: The Art of an African Tribe and African Canvas: The Art of West African Women, Courtney-Clarke succeeds in capturing the spirit of the women by experiencing their world from season to season and by respecting their values and traditions. Through photographs, interviews, and observations, Courtney-Clarke documents the Berber women as they stoically carry water and firewood on their backs for miles of rocky terrain. And she records the beauty they have magically produced in their lives - through their spinning and weaving and their carefully coiled pottery - a metaphor for survival and creativity. Geraldine Brooks, award-winning journalist and an expert on life in the Middle East, accompanied Courtney-Clarke on her last trip to North Africa, and has written moving, thoughtful essays on the struggle of existence among the Berbers. With a glossary of Berber terms and a detailed map of the region, this book is not only a handsomely illustrated volume of the triumph of the arts of the Berber women, but a dramatic record of a people yielding to the pressures of the twentieth century

"Knott observes that Thomas Jefferson and his followers, and, later, Andrew Jackson and his adherents, tended to view Hamilton and his principles as "un-American." While his policies generated mistrust in the South and the West, where he is still seen as the founding plutocrat, Hamilton was revered in New England and parts of the mid-Atlantic states. Hamilton's image as a champion of American nationalism caused his reputation to soar during the Civil War, at least in the North. However, in the wake of Gilded Age excesses, progressive and populist political leaders branded Hamilton as the patron saint of Wall Street, and his reputation began to disintegrate."--BOOK JACKET
