France in Black Africa by Francis Terry McNamara( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When, in 1960, France granted independence to its colonies in West and Central Africa-an empire covering an area the size of the contiguous United States-the French still intended to retain influence in Africa. Through a system of accords with these newly independent African nations, based upon ties naturally formed over the colonial years, France has succeeded for three decades in preserving its position in African affairs. The course of Franco-African relations in the near future, though, is less than certain. In this book, Ambassador Francis Terry McNamara outlines France's acquisition and administration of its Black African empire and traces the former colonies' paths to independence. Drawing upon that background, the ambassador examines the structure of post-independence Franco-African relations and recent strains on those relations, especially African economic crises and the French tendency to focus on Europe. Because of those strains, he suggests, France alone may be unable to support its former dependencies much longer. He believes that long-term solutions to African problems will have to involve international organizations like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund as well as other nations such as the United States and France's European partners. -- From Foreword

Escape with honor : my last hours in Vietnam by Francis Terry McNamara( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his dedicated consulate staff and Marine guards, McNamara organized a complicated and dangerous riverine evacuation of hundreds of Filipino and Vietnamese civilians, many of whom had been marked for death by the rapidly advancing communist forces. Documenting what were perhaps the last American shots fired during the Vietnam War and highly critical of the CIA's performance during the apocalyptic final hours, Escape with Honor is a thrilling testimony to American honor
Determination of changes in the state of the Arctic ice pack using the NPS Pan-Arctic coupled ice-ocean model by Francis Terry McNamara( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis provides an analysis of the diminishing sea ice trend in the Arctic Ocean by examining the NPS 1/12-degree pan-Arctic coupled ice-ocean model. While many previous studies have analyzed changes in ice extent and concentration, this research focuses on ice thickness as it gives a better indication of ice volume variability. The skill of the model is examined by comparing its output to sea ice thickness data gathered during the last two decades. The first dataset used is the collection of draft measurements conducted by U.S. Navy submarines between 1986 and 1999. The second is electromagnetic (EM) induction ice thickness measurements gathered using a helicopter by the Alfred Wegener Institute in April 2003. Last, model output is compared with data collected by NASA's ICESat program using a laser altimeter mounted on a satellite of the same name. The NPS model indicates an accelerated thinning trend in Arctic sea ice during the last decade. The validation of model output with submarine, EM and ICESat data supports this result. This lends credence to the postulation that the Arctic not only might, but is likely to be ice-free during the summer in the near future
