  • We thank the University of Washington Department of Economics for sponsoring ‘Frontiers in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics’, a conference in honor of Gardner M. Brown, Jr., that led to this book. In particular, we thank Richard Parks for his efforts in planning a wonderful event and helping to lay the foundation for this book; Neil Bruce, who sup- ported and encouraged us to plan a conference worthy of Gardner’s career; and Gary Waterman who helped to make the event, and in turn this book, a reality.

  • Natural Resources and Economic Development explores a key para- dox: why is natural resource exploitation not yielding greater benefits to the poor economies of Africa, Asia and Latin America? Part One examines this paradox both through a historical review of resource use and development and through examining current theories that explain the under-performance of today’s resource-abundant economies, and proposes a frontier expansion hypothesis as an alter- native explanation.

  • The charge to this committee—to envision the future of geotechnology— is at once a grand challenge and a problem. In many ways, geotechnology is a mature field having come to its majority in the last 50 years. Many serious problems have been solved. We know how to build strong foundations, safe dams, and stable roads and tunnels. We have a good understanding about the behavior and protection of groundwater, how to extract the petroleum resources, and develop a geothermal field.

  • Astronomers have studied the heavens for more than two millennia, but in the twentieth century, humankind ventured off planet Earth into the dark vacuum void of space, forever changing our perspective of our home planet and on our relationship to the universe in which we reside. Our explorations of space—the final frontier in our niche in this solar system—first with satellites, then robotic probes, and finally with humans, have given rise to an extensive space industry that has a major influence on the economy and on our lives. In 1998, U.S.

  • Scientists who dedicate their research activity to biomaterials pass through the typical dichotomy that often characterizes the basic research. On one side is the wish of exploring new frontiers of chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, pharmaceutics and all other disciplines to which biomaterials can be applied. Constantly improving of scientific knowledge would feed the freedom of attempting new strategies for producing materials with always tailored and improved characteristics.

  • I started exploring telecommunications’ frontiers at the tender age of nine, way back in 1964. That was the year I visited the New York World’s Fair and found myself, quite unexpectedly, drafted into a corporate public relations demonstration. Back then, nearly all U.S. telecommunications—hardware, software and service—was concentrated in the hands of a giant monopoly—the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. AT&T’s showplace at the fair was the Bell System Pavilion. (Fig. Intro.-1).

  • INTRODUCTION: SCIENTIFIC EXPLORATION AT THE HIGH-ENERGY FRONTIER The major high-energy physics (HEP) experiments of the next twenty years will break new ground in our understanding of the fundamental interactions, structures and symmetries that govern the nature of matter and space-time. Among the principal goals are to find the mechanism responsible for mass in the universe, and the ‘Higgs’ particles associated with mass generation, as well as the fundamental mechanism that led to the predominance of matter over antimatter in the observable cosmos.

  • The writer came to Queensland two years before separation, and shortly afterwards took part in the work of outside settlement, or pioneering, looking for new country to settle on with stock. Going from Bowen out west towards the head of the Flinders River in 1864, he continued his connection with this outside life until his death in 1899. Many of the original explorers and pioneers were known to him personally; of these but few remain.

  • The expanding perimeter of human knowledge has brought pioneering scientists in many frontier areas face to face with events that cannot be easily explained in terms of present scientific concepts of reality. Psychic abilities, UFOs, strange energy effects from human-made devices—these are some of the unusual phenomena that have puzzled and intrigued those explorer-scientists. But upon reporting their observations from the borderland territories, the all-too-frequent reaction by other scientists has been to disregard these unusual...
