Glimpses of China and Chinese homes by Edward Sylvester Morse( Book )

14 editions published between 1902 and 2016 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining close scientific observation and a connoisseur's delight in art, this classic volume by Edward Morse is a beautifully observed and meticulously recorded account of China and its traditional domestic architecture as they were in the 1880's. Morse's stature as a sensitive observer of Asian material culture is unrivalled, and his work preserves numerous features of everyday life that might otherwise have been lost, captured at a point in time before the forces of Westernisation had become intrusive. Based upon journals kept during his travels in the country, the work describes the terrain through which he journeyed, houses and their construction, traditional building material, furnishings, interior and exterior decoration and other household matters, illustrated with his own exquisitely precise drawings which give a unique insight into the Chinese way of life."--BOOK JACKET

Nuclear fusion by Edward Morse( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pursuit of nuclear fusion as an energy source requires a broad knowledge of several disciplines. These include plasma physics, atomic physics, electromagnetics, materials science, computational modeling, superconducting magnet technology, accelerators, lasers, and health physics. Nuclear Fusion distills and combines these disparate subjects to create a concise and coherent foundation to both fusion science and technology. It examines all aspects of physics and technology underlying the major magnetic and inertial confinement approaches to developing nuclear fusion energy. It further chronicles latest developments in the field, and reflects the multi-faceted nature of fusion research, preparing advanced undergraduate and graduate students in physics and engineering to launch into successful and diverse fusion-related research. Nuclear Fusion reflects Dr. Morse's research in both magnetic and inertial confinement fusion, working with the world's top laboratories, and embodies his extensive thirty-five year career in teaching three courses in fusion plasma physics and fusion technology at University of California, Berkeley

Foreign policy and interdependence in Gaullist France by Edward L Morse( )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French foreign policy in the 1960's seemed unique because it was dominated by the anachronistic ideals of Charles de Gaulle. Edward L. Morse argues that in fact the foreign policies of all highly modernized states are so similar that they can be described and explained by a general theory of interdependence. He uses France as a case study of his theory, and shows that what makes French foreign policy in this period so fascinating is the way in which the behavior of the President brought into sharp focus the problems interdependence poses for nation-states.The book is divided into two parts. The first develops the theory of the conduct of foreign policy in any highly modernized society. The second part tests the theory by examining such characteristics of French foreign policy as: the erosion of the distinction between foreign and domestic affairs; the constraints put on foreign policy by the growth of international economic interdependence, which has also affected the autonomy of decision-making in a purely national context; the increased importance of foreign economic policy; the questioning of governmental priorities in foreign affairs; and the emergence of crisis management and manipulation as part of the routine procedures of foreign policy operations. Edward L. Morse's work is valuable both for the theory it offers and because it gives a balanced view of foreign policy in an important period in recent French history.Originally published in 1973.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
