A Police Force Without a State: A History of the Palestinian Security Forces in the West Bank And Gaza

A Police Force Without a State: A History of the Palestinian Security Forces in the West Bank and Gaza by Brynjar Lia
Ithaca Press | October 18, 2006 | English | ISBN: 0863723047 | 479 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book traces the evolution of the Palestinian police and security forces, beginning with its historical antecedents in Lebanon and the Occupied Territories, and the formation of formal police organizations after the Oslo Accords until the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000. The history of the Palestinian police revolves around the fundamental question of how a national police force can be created and operated without the framework of an independent state. Offering a far more detailed and accurate account of the Palestinian police history, this study also provides unique insight into the problems and dilemmas of policing by non-state actors in war torn societies. The study traces the establishment and expansion of the Palestinian police and security forces with a focus on PLO efforts at recruiting, training, and expanding the force, its political context, institutional development, and dilemmas of 'non-state' policing in the context of the political-military conflict with Israel. A Police Force without a State gives a unique insight into a hitherto uncharted territory in contemporary Palestinian and Middle Eastern history.
A History of the Theory of Structures in the Nineteenth Century (repost)

T. M. Charlton, "A History of the Theory of Structures in the Nineteenth Century"
C U P | July 8, 2002 | 200 Pages | ISBN: 0521234190 | PDF | 5 MB

The spectacular structures of today, such as large suspension bridges, are the result of scientific principles established during the new iron age of the nineteenth century. The book is concerned with a detailed and critical account of the development and application of those principles (including statics and elasticity) by people of remarkable talent in applied mathematics and engineering. They were, of course, mainly motivated by the demands of the railway, construction boom. Among the outstanding examples chosen by the author is Robert Stephenson's use of novel principles for the design and erection of the Britannia tubular iron bridge over the Menai Straits. A History of the Theory of Structures in the Nineteenth Century is a uniquely comprehensive account of a century of the development of the theory; an account which skilfully blends the personalities and the great works and which is enlivened by little-known accounts of friendship and controversy.

A History of the English Language
Audio CDs in MP3 / English: MP3, 64 kb/s (1 ch) | Duration: 08:15:40 | + PDF Guide | 228 mb
Genre: History

Professor Drout addresses the foundation of language and its connection to specific portions of the brain. The components of language are explained in easy-to-understand terms and the progression of the language from Germanic to Old, Middle, and Modern English is fully illustrated - including such revolutionary language upheavals as those brought about by the Norman Conquest and the Great Vowel Shift. One of the most interesting aspects of the English language lies in its variants, such as the "soda" vs. "pop" debate and the place of African-American English in modern culture. These and other dialectual curiosities are looked at in detail and placed in the context of today's world. Finally, Professor Drout examines the future, not only of the English language, but of all the world's languages.

A History of the Ideas of Theoretical Physics: Essays on the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Physics

A History of the Ideas of Theoretical Physics: Essays on the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Physics (Boston Studies in the Philosophy and History of Science) by S. D'Agostino
English | Nov 30, 2001 | ISBN: 1402002440 | 381 Pages | PDF | 26 MB

This book presents a perspective on the history of theoretical physics over the past two hundreds years. It comprises essays on the history of pre-Maxwellian electrodynamics, of Maxwell's and Hertz's field theories, and of the present century's relativity and quantum physics. A common thread across the essays is the search for and the exploration of themes that influenced significant con­ ceptual changes in the great movement of ideas and experiments which heralded the emergence of theoretical physics (hereafter: TP). The fun. damental change involved the recognition of the scien­ tific validity of theoretical physics. In the second half of the nine­ teenth century, it was not easy for many physicists to understand the nature and scope of theoretical physics and of its adept, the theoreti­ cal physicist.

A History of the Spanish Lexicon: A Linguistic Perspective

A History of the Spanish Lexicon: A Linguistic Perspective by Steven N. Dworkin
English, Spanish | 2012 | ISBN: 0199541140 | 352 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

This history of the Spanish lexicon is written from the interacting perspectives of linguistic and cultural change and in the light of advances in the study of language contact and lexical change. The author describes the language inherited from spoken Latin in the Iberian Peninsula during six centuries of Roman occupation and examines the degree to which it imported words from the languages - of which only Basque survives - of pre-Roman Spain.
