Bulgaria by R. J Crampton( )

40 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the evolution of the Bulgarian state and its people, from the beginning of the Bulgarian national revival in the middle of the nineteenth century to the entry of the country into the European Union, Richard Crampton examines key political, social, and economic developments, revealing the history of a country which evolved from a backward and troublesome Balkan state to become a modern European nation. Seeing the collapse as well as the establishment and evolution of communist rule, Bulgaria survived an often painful journey from monolithic authoritarianism to representative democracy and the market system. Crampton follows this journey, and analyses the development of Bulgaria's political culture, examining the emergence of radical movements, both agrarian and socialist, as well as looking at the role of religion and the position of minorities. Crampton highlights the problems and dilemmas created by the country's position situated between East and West, problems which might not be entirely solved by the country's admission to the EU. -- Publisher description

Atlas of Eastern Europe in the twentieth century by R. J Crampton( )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With 129 maps, numerous diagrams and incisive textual commentary, the Atlas of Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century draws a definitive picture of the changing shape of Eastern Europe from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present. Among the highlights of this expansive guide, the Atlas gives a general introduction to the physical, ethnic and religious composition of the region. It presents detailed information relating to consituent territories, elections, economic developments, and land-holding patterns for key individual countries through both world wars. It also provides crucial social and economic data, evidencing changes under communist domination and after its fall. The Atlas's 129 maps present a detailed story of an Eastern Europe not easily conveyed by words alone. Summary maps of Eastern Europe are given for the key years 1900, 1923, 1945, and 1994. Other maps chart the ebb and flow of the first and second world wars. The persecution of the Jews and population movement is traced. Finally, maps are given of the new states of post-communist Eastern Europe with details of elections and economic indicators for Albania, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Lithuania, and others
Eastern Europe in the twentieth century and after by R. J Crampton( Book )

39 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century is an ideal introduction to an important area which is as diverse and diffuse as it is interesting and important. Richard Crampton extends his coverage through the revolutions of 1989-1991 up to today, and places these revolutions in the context of each country's historical tradition. He also develops themes such as how to create a democracy and maintain a functioning market economy; the resurgence of nationalism, war and the emergence of organized crime in the fragmented ex-empire. The revised edition also contains an up-to-date bibliography and extended examination of the breakdown of stability in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bulgaria's democratic consolidation and the Kozloduy nuclear power plant : the unattainability of closure by Matthew S Tejada( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and German and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bulgaria's post-communist experience has been a fractured transition both politically and economically. As Bulgaria now stands on the cusp of what is potentially the most significant event in its modern history - entry into the European Union - how deeply has its democracy been consolidated? Has the residue of Bulgaria's communist era finally been sloughed off? Are there lingering threats to democratic stability that could delay Bulgaria's entry into the EU? And just how genuine a partner has the EU been in helping Bulgaria progress down its transition path? If there is one single issue that can help to illuminate these troubling questions, it is the long and controversial history of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant. In this first thorough examination of Bulgaria's only nuclear power-generating complex, new light is shone on issues ranging from the micro-management of nuclear safety and regulation to political accountability and adherence to international agreements. Most significant, however, are reappraisals of the impact of the 1996-97 political and economic crises, the importance of the 1999 EU accession invitation and the democratic shortcomings of the much-heralded government of former tsar Simeon II

Hydrodynamic lubrication and coating of wire using a polymer melt during drawing process by R. J Crampton( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A device based on an adaptation of the Christopherson tube is investigated for the lubrication and other effects of employing a polymer melt as the lubricant during the wire drawing process. The device is heated to convert the polymer feed into a viscous melt and the pressure required is generated by a hydrodynamic action produced by the motion of the wire. On the basis of experimental evidence, it is apparent that deformation commences before the wire reaches the die, in the Christopherson tube itself, with the die effectively acting only as a seal. Under these conditions, the die geometry becomes of. secondary importance and the deformation actually takes place as if an effective die of continuously changing die angle is being used. To take this aspect of the process into account, a mathematically described effective die shape is used in the present analysis. The plastic strain hardening properties and the strain rate sensitivity of the wire material are also incorporated into the analysis. The study utilises an empirical expression relating shear stress and rate of shear together with an experimentally derived pressure coefficient of viscosity, in determining the coat thickness possible on the wire. The theory contains the effect of a limiting value to the shear stress, which exhibits itself as slip in the polymer. An alternative theory is also presented which assumes that shear stress is zero at the polymer/tube interface. This much simplified analysis allows the length of the deformation zone to be determined. An extensive series of experimental studies have shown that the coat thickness reduces both as speed increases and as the wire material strength increases. Predictions of coat thickness from the analysis tend to be lower than those obtained experimentally. At low drawing speeds a coat defect was observed which gave the coated wire a "bamboo" shape. It is probable that this defect is caused by the slip-stick nature of the polymer melt in the Christopherson tube. The assumed die shape and predicted pressure distributions are verified by experiment
