The dancing girls are very numerous, not only in Palestine, but in Egypt. They are the same odious class all through.... "Their faces are never covered... They are stockingless... Stripping off their shoes when the music begins, their hips suddenly rise up, their bodies sway either way..."-from "Chapter VII: A Night in Jericho"Before the Hardy Boys and the Bobsey Twins, there was Walter, who traveled to Egypt, Damascus, Samaria, Constantinople, Athens, and other exotic destinations, and regaled the world with his adventures abroad in Walter's Tours in the East. This, the second book in the series, first published in 1863, "takes young travellers into Jerusalem, shows them the city and its environs and holy places, gives them a tour to the Dead Sea and the Jordan, and makes them acquainted with the sacred localities in that region." This early example of children's fiction offers an illuminating look at 19th-century Western attitudes toward the East.American writer and reverend DANIEL C. EDDY served as chaplain of the Senate in 1856. He also wrote a series of books about the fictional Percy family's travels in Europe, including A Visit to Ireland (1859) and Through Scotland and England (1859).

This book was compiled in December 2010, way ahead of the events that were to engulf MENA(the Middle East and North Africa) region. The later so-called Jasmin Revolution was envisioned in the book containing an introduction( a short history of the region- the wealth of the area... and the issues confronting it), and four distinct separate yet connected chapters laying-out the the four inevitable forces(engines) that were to propel change in region. The might and bulge of the educated-cosmopolitan youth, the women gradually taking a center position in the societies that were but shut out to them(some fifty percent new participants-half of the poplulation overhauling the region), the wealth both material in forms of oil etc., and intellectual, and the indigenous democracy sweeping across the area with religious identities and beliefs empowering it, are the four inevitables that the author prescribed in ushering in a new Middle East. The events re-constructing the region have been proof to the inevitability of the changes prescriped in the book.No data-figures-findings have been changed as to keep the book in its original form.

Roads are the main access for the deforestation process in the Amazon Region. About 80 percent of the area deforested is located within 30km of an official road. Due to the potential negative impact caused to the forest, the process of opening roads in the Amazon region needs to be accompanied by efficient land development policies that not only guarantee rational economic activities, promote sustainable use of natural resources but also provide welfare for the population. The absence of public authority with efficient institutions to control, monitor, supervise, and enforce illegal activities in the region gives opportunity for different social actors to abuse and misuse the land and its natural resources The BR-163 was opened 30 years ago during the military regime in Brazil. The highway crossing an area rich in biodiversity, cultural variability and natural resources that attracts interest and investment from different social groups. The paving of the BR-163 has been requested by the people for decades. The poor road conditions turn living conditions too hard especially in the rainy season Is the government capable to guide the occupation of the territory in a sustainable way?

Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: This thesis tries to examine the structures, activities, changes and spatial impacts of economic development in Scotland. Looking at the Scottish economy it has to be considered that Scotland is both an integrated part of the UK and the UK economy and a peripheral region within the UK. Therefore Scotland does not have an economy of its own, but the distinctiveness of the region in terms of location, history and recent political devel-opments justifies a closer examination of the matter. Scotland is in many aspects a very heterogeneous region. This is in particular true for the economic structure and a focus on one region cannot be representative. Edinburgh is an exceptionally prosperous region, not only in Scottish terms. However this prosperity and activity in economic development makes Edinburgh an interesting subject for examination. Thus the focus of this thesis lies on the developments in Edinburgh. Economic development is certainly influenced by a vast number of factors and it is impossible to take all of them into account. Within this thesis the emphasis lies on governmental influence on the developments. However European development measures are not considered. Accordingly the thesis aims to look at the ways the promotion of economic development is carried out in Scotland and tries to assess the measures on the background of the distinctiveness of Scotland and Edinburgh. Thus in the first chapter the thesis takes a look at Scotland as a who...

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, Xiamen University, language: English, abstract: West Africa is one of the regions on the African continent with abundant natural resources ranging from vast forest and arable land to mineral deposits. According to UN classification the region is endowed with about one-third of the least developed countries (LDCs) in Africa. The region has come under the spot light of most emerging economies like China, India, Brazil and other developed economies with the basic interest in the region's natural resources. How competitive West African economies are in their respective trading partners market to facilitate specialization in their exports has been a major issue. This paper analyzes the competitiveness and the pattern of trade flows of this sub region in the Chinese market to help both China and the sub region to mutually benefit from their trade partnership. Revealed comparative advantage index was used as an analytical tool with time series data from 2000-2010. The results indicated that West Africa enjoys revealed comparative advantage in ten out of the 63 product groups.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck (Institut für Geographie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This study analyses the spatial expansion in bicycle tourism due to the innovation of electric bicycles (e-bikes) in German-speaking countries. Until recently cycling destinations were mainly limited to flatter regions. This study's objective is to evaluate whether the advent of electric bicycles expands the spatial potential for (electric) cycle tourism in any topographic setting. By means of an online survey of e-bike rental companies and expert interviews with the regional project coordinators, this study compares supply and demand of three sample destinations with different landscape types: the Tauber River valley region and the southern Black Forest Mittelgebirge in Germany as well as the Schladming-Dachstein alpine region in Austria. The results show that most tourists used the e-bike offers spontaneously and chose the destination by other motivations. However, the study also shows that many of these tourists would not consider a bike tour on a normal bicycle. Thus, for many tourists e-bikes hold the potential to extend the radius of the actively usable tourist areas in mountainous destinations. Although all sample regions record a slowly growing demand of e-bike users, the outcome did not quite meet most tourism service provider's expectations. Therefore, it is conclude...

Up and down the Great Lakes, wherever captains and seamen met, one of the chief topics of conversation is still the Great Storm—the worst disaster in Great Lakes history. By men of the Lakes, November 9, 1913 will always be remembered as Black Sunday, for it brought death to hundreds of their companions and destruction to scores of ships of the Lakes fleet. Each man who survived the Storm has a fascinating story to tell.Freshwater Fury is the first comprehensive history of the Great Storm. Author Frank Barcus, who has met and talked with many survivors during his trips on Lakes freighters over the past twenty years, presents here their vivid eye-witness accounts. The many drawings, maps, and diagrams executed by the author add pictorial interest to the story of this dramatic struggle between men and the elements.

4177 руб.
In this timely book, the authors provide a detailed analysis of Russia's national interests in the Arctic region. They assess Russia's domestic discourse on the High North's role in the system of national priorities as well as of Moscow's bi- and multilateral relations with major regional players, energy, environmental, socio-cultural, and military policies in the Arctic. In contrast to the internationally wide-spread stereotype of Russia as a revisionist power in the High North, this book argues that Moscow tries to pursue a double-sided strategy in the region. On the one hand, Russia aims at defending her legitimate economic interests in the region. On the other hand, Moscow is open to co-operation with foreign partners that are willing to partake in exploiting the Arctic natural resources. The general conclusion is that in the foreseeable future Moscow's strategy in the region will be predictable and pragmatic rather than aggressive or spontaneous. The authors argue that in order to consolidate the soft power pattern of Russia's behavior a proper international environment in the Arctic should be created by common efforts. Other regional players should demonstrate their responsibility and willingness to solve existing and potential problems on the basis of international law.

The Mesquakies-popularly known as the Fox, or Sac and Fox, Indians-were a large and powerful people in the Great Lakes region in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Now they live on approximately 3,000 acres of communal property near Tama, Iowa, surrounded by white middle-class farmers. WOLF THAT I AM is the story of a young white academic's encounter with the Mesquakies whom he got to know while collecting folklore for his dissertation. Fred McTaggart had expected to find a dying oral culture. Instead, he found a thriving way of life based on families and clans, linking the present-day Mesquakie Indians with previous generations, including ancestors who lived before the world was created in its present form. This encounter with a people who live ideas instead of thinking them inspired McTaggart to unlock secrets within

The McMurdo Dry Valleys region of Antarctica represents one of the harshest, most extreme environments on Earth. Despite these conditions, life still manages to survive in the ice-covered lakes that exist within these valleys. Each of these lakes exhibits a unique and fascinating environment, and Lake Hoare is no exception. This work provides an overview of the modern and historical character of Lake Hoare and the Dry Valleys environment, and also presents the results of new research pertaining to the history of Lake Hoare. This research consisted of collecting and analyzing sediment cores from the lake bottom, and using the results to reconstruct the recent history of Lake Hoare. The goal of this study was to take existing knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological processes currently operating in the modern lake environment and use it to explain observed changes within the sediment core and, thus, the lake in the past. This work presents a new method for reconstructing sediment pore water salinity, new data on the physical and chemical changes within the lake sediment and further insight into existing interpretations of the history of Lake Hoare and Taylor Valley.

Creating Socially Responsible Citizens. Cases from the Asia-Pacific Region

6427 руб.
This book originates from a collaborative research initiative to examine how various societies in the Asia-Pacific Region construct moral and civic education, and to what extent these systems achieve thedemocratic objective of creating socially responsible citizens. In many western societies there is at least arhetorical tendency to separate the moral and civic dimensions of citizenship education, and in some casesto exclude the moral dimension from the discourse of preparing citizens.However, as cross-societal dialogues and research about citizenship education have increased in the pasttwo decades, scholars have identified differences in the emphasis put on the moral dimension of citizenshipeducation across the Asia-Pacific region. In many predominantly Confucian, Islamic and Buddhistsocieties, for example, the emphasis on the moral dimension of citizenship education is explicit, and insome cases, central.While awareness of a divide, or perhaps more appropriately a continuum in the role of moral versus civic education in democratic societies has beenrecognized for some time, to our knowledge this book marks the first effort of this scope to address the issue of the moral/civic divide in citizenshipeducation. Thus, through a cross-cultural dialogue across societies in the Asia-Pacific Region, this book addresses the issue of whether elements ofboth civic and moral education can be effectively joined to create a "socially responsible" citizen.

When Taliessin through Logres was published in 1938, it received widespread critical acclaim. Alongside its partner companion The Region of the Summer Stars, it stands as one of the most profound and challenging works in Williams’ body of work—and one of the most important to understanding him fully. In this new edition, both Taliessin through Logres and The Region of the Summer Stars are found together, with a new introduction by Williams scholar Sørina Higgins.Taliessin through Logres is designed to reward multiple readings. The poetry is technically virtuosic, musically beautiful, and conceptually complex. It is densely packed with layers of symbolism and rich imagery that are not initially easy to understand, but that scintillate with ever greater brilliance upon repeated readings.—from the Introduction by Sørina HigginsSome of the most fascinating poetry written in our time. Taliessin through Logres and The Region of the Summer Stars contain (Williams’) Grail poems, a reworking of the theme of the Holy Grail into a poetic myth of unusual wisdom and contemporary significance. It is a unique handling, a fresh vision, of an old subject-matter which has been almost completely neglected in English literature.”—C.P. CrowleyThe more I read Taliessin through Logres and The Region of the Summer Stars, the more rewarding I find them.... Charles Williams has his own mythology which a reader must master.—W.H. Auden

Christiane Mohr Selling the Business Location. Place Marketing in the Context of the Rhine-Main Region

In the past decade, place marketing, country marketing and city marketing have enjoyed an increase in recognition, especially as countries and locations have been spending more money to encourage firms to locate their offices, and plant locations in the place marketer's area. This is reflected in a growing number of associations, literature, media coverage and educational courses offered.The aim of the present study is to evaluate current literature in order to understand the importance of place marketing in general, and marketing of the Rhine Main Region, as Germany's most cosmopolitan region, in particular. For an international context, Hong Kong and Los Angeles are used as exemplary competitors. For Los Angeles is one of the United States most powerful cities and Hong Kong represents the gateway to China. However, the focus of the investigation is on a B2B perspective in the marketing of the Rhine Main Region. In literature and in practice, place marketing strategies vary from very simple to very sophisticated. After the creation of a theoretical framework, in which the author examines place marketing from the perspective of the marketer, and that of the business customer, the author puts the whole set into practice with help of the Rhine Main Region, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. In the final conclusion, she assesses the place marketing activities of the aforementioned competitors, and tries to rank them according to their current performance.

In this volume, Michael P. Malone provides a succinct interpretive biography of James J. Hill, the "Empire Builder"-so called for his work in developing the region of the United States between the Great Lakes and the Pacific Northwest.Malone explores Hill's complex life and personality, his activities and interests, and recreates both the story of the railroad race to the Pacific and the complex interactions involved in the development of the region."Michael Malone has written a model. . . .interpretative biography of James J. Hill. He has drawn on the research of others, published and unpublished, as he says, but also on his own knowledge of American economic development in Hill's time as a leading historian of mining and of a state in whose development Hill's railroads were major factors." -Earl Pomeroy, Professor of History, Retired, University of Oregon and University of California, San Diego

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, , course: US Foreign Policy, International Relations in the Caspian Sea Region, language: English, abstract: The New Great Game in the Caspian Sea Region received moderate attention from scholars following the collapse of the Soviet Union because it resembled the continuation of rivalry between Washington and Moscow. For the eight Caspian republics, the discovery of vast oil and gas deposits was the key to securing the newly independent states' sovereignty away from Moscow's control toward integration with Europe and the United States. This thesis analyses the US' treatment of the Caspian Sea Region between 1991 and 2001, in order to measure whether its policies were crafted according to Realist tenets in formulating policy designed to advance its security. The historical record seen through Offensive Realism presents evidence that US foreign policy was governed by principles not balance of power considerations, led by the false notion that democratic Russia would act in accordance with US goals. Intent on fostering democracy in Russia the United States denied the competitive nature of international politics, refusing to criticize abuses by Moscow in the region and failing to intervene when US interests were marginalised. The US failed to prevent Russia from refashioning conditions conducive to the reabsorption of the Caucasus and ...

In an era of growing regionalization South Asia remains one of the least integrated regions in the world. The region's complicated political economy, its divided history and a maze of institutional and economic barriers are commonly blamed for the lack of a vibrant regional market in South Asia. A fraught history, however, need not be destiny. This short book explores the possibilities of deepening intraregional trade and investment in South Asia. Drawing on field work carried out in the region's textile and garment industry, it examines the conditions under which feuding and mistrustful members can work as partners despite past grievances. The book finds evidence of the emergence of new intermediaries in the region, including a generation of younger entrepreneurs, with a more global worldview that seems to transcend the region's divided history and is enabling more embedded trade ties. These new actors along with the growing size of the domestic market can serve as anchors for deeper regional engagement in the future. It is hoped that the evidence provided by this book can nudge the conversation about regional cooperation in South Asia in new directions.

The post-Cold War period in Europe was favourable for the development of new regionalization projects which surrounded the EU. The Baltic Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea became the center of new European sub-regions. Each project stands out now through a certain image that it received mirroring its type and level of regionalisation emerged at the junction of regional dynamics and external influences. While the Nordic region is addressed as a model of multi-level, locally driven cooperation, the Mediterranean region is embedded in the North- South developmental division approach with little cooperation and strong external influences. The Black Sea's position is debated between the two models mentioned above. Thus, I propose a comparative analysis of these three cases aiming to trace down the similarities and differences between them with the focus on the Black Sea Region. The conclusion of the study places the Black Sea Region in between the cases with a genuine potential to follow the Nordic model but with its future evolution hanging on the EU's policies toward the area.

Disclaimer: The views expressed in this book are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the Coalition of Chiefs for Bono East Region. Political administrative regions are created in response to complex economics, politics, and endless array of forces. In a developing country such as Ghana, region creation is primarily seen as part of a broad process of industrialization as a result of spatial dynamics of population and economic activity.New regions affect population dynamics as, for instance, when businesses extend their presence and operations into them. This increases the population of the existing districts and municipals within the region. Those districts and municipals that become too big may be split up into smaller units.Thus, the new district and municipal assemblies join the existing ones to spread socioeconomic development across the country through local governance. This helps fulfill the core mandate of districts and municipals, as drivers of socioeconomic development. To help minimize historical distortion, this book tells about the untold story behind the Bono East Region and the impressive contributions made by certain individuals. This will serve as their legacy so that future generations can read about those contributions and accord them their rightful places in history.

Oil has played a strategic role in the economics and politics of Nigeria since the mid-60s. Inspite the large oil earnings, the oil producing Niger Delta region in Nigeria remains one of the poorest and most conflict-prone region in sub-Saharan Africa. For most of the Niger Deltans, the story of oil has practically been that of 'the bad and the ugly'. The legacy of oil has been severe economic and environmental problems which have exacerbated political tensions and social conflict in the country. This dismal natural resource endowment narrative raises a key question, why has sustainable development been elusive in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria despite the magnitude of its oil wealth? This question is the subject of extensive discussion in this factual book. Despite the fact that the type and scale of violence in the oil region is rooted in generalised poverty, exploitation and a discriminatory system, what happens when a revolution gets hijacked by people pursuing parochial agenda?

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, Nürtingen University (Campus of Finance), course: Global Markets, language: English, abstract: Many observers, business people and in particular investors see labor cost developments in China as one of the main challenges for their Chinese subsidiaries. Especially in the East-coast region around Shanghai, labor cost has risen significantly within the last decade. For investors having subsidiaries in this region, the outlook on labor market might not look much brighter than it used to. Nevertheless, this development results from the impressive shift China has made in such a short period of time. China is now undergoing one of the most massive urbanizations in human history, which becomes nowhere more evident than in Shanghai. The population of this city is officially by now almost 24 million and is forecasted to rise to 30 million by 2020. Consequently, especially low-tech manufacturing plants in the Shanghai region suffer on the one hand from increasing labor cost, on the other hand from the fact that the government changed its focus to higher value-added industries with less pollution output in order to increase the living standard and quality of the population. In general, this trend means that Shanghai attracts high value-added industries such as Finance and Technology since the city offers well educated workforce as well as for sure an amazing flair att...

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Organisation and Administration, grade: 1,7 (A-), Kiel University of Applied Sciences (Business Management), course: Seminar: Selected Topics in English, 30 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Baltic Sea Region, including relatively poor countries such as Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania but also economic giants such as Denmark, Finland or Sweden, is discussed controversially in literature. The Financial Times calls the region an "economic tiger" or even "the Engine Room of Europe" (Burt 1999, 1). Others do not see such good prospective and rather warn that "positive trends should not lead to total optimism ... [because, in their view,] economic integration comprising all states bordering the Baltic Sea is not easily to be visualized in the near future" (NEBI Yearbook 1998, 5). The decision of a company, whether to invest or to go public in a certain country, should be based (mainly) on the analysis of the region which is not always an easy task.The main objective of this paper is thus to analyse the economic situation in the Eastern Baltic Rim countries by looking at the integration process into the EU, the successes in attracting foreign investors, and the success of the transforming process in general by the means of a SWOT analysis.

The South Pacific Rim, located in the Oceania region, is now more than ever before being rapidly integrated into the global economy. The forces of globalization, particularly information and communications technology are the driving factors. While the region is very well known as an exotic tourist destination, little is known about its laws and the potential facilitative commercial, trade and investment environment that exist in the region. International procurement and electronic commerce constitute one such important area. This book discusses international procurement and electronic commerce in the context of South Pacific island countries by illustrating the linkages between theory, law and practice. The book adopts a unique approach to discussing these issues by utilizing extensive case-study analyses which focus on internationally executed ICT-based supply and service contracts, as well as construction and works agreements. In addition, detailed treatment is given the UNCITRAL model law for procurement of goods, construction and services by depicting its relevance to Pacific island countries. The book specifically outlines the interconnection between conventional procurement contracts and traditional customary practices- an important consideration because of the impact of local traditions even on the constitutions of countries of the region. Lastly, the book examines the advancement of digital technology and the role this can play in the overall commercial development of...

Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: This thesis tries to examine the structures, activities, changes and spatial impacts of economic development in Scotland. Looking at the Scottish economy it has to be considered that Scotland is both an integrated part of the UK and the UK economy and a peripheral region within the UK. Therefore Scotland does not have an economy of its own, but the distinctiveness of the region in terms of location, history and recent political devel-opments justifies a closer examination of the matter. Scotland is in many aspects a very heterogeneous region. This is in particular true for the economic structure and a focus on one region cannot be representative. Edinburgh is an exceptionally prosperous region, not only in Scottish terms. However this prosperity and activity in economic development makes Edinburgh an interesting subject for examination. Thus the focus of this thesis lies on the developments in Edinburgh. Economic development is certainly influenced by a vast number of factors and it is impossible to take all of them into account. Within this thesis the emphasis lies on governmental influence on the developments. However European development measures are not considered. Accordingly the thesis aims to look at the ways the promotion of economic development is carried out in Scotland and tries to assess the measures on the background of the distinctiveness of Scotland and Edinburgh. Thus in the first chapter the thesis takes a look at Scotland as a who...
