  • The present work is designed to supply a want which still exists in our School Classical Literature. It has been represented to the editor, from several quarters, that his Larger Classical Dictionary, though well adapted for the use of the higher forms in the public schools, is excluded, both by its size and price, from a great number of schools, which are therefore obliged to put up with the abridgments of Lempriere's obsolete work. In consequence of these representations, the editor has been induced to draw up this Smaller Dictionary....

  • We are all explorers. Even as tiny children we search out the limits of our world. A few years on, our imagination stretches further: fingers batting at a giddy plastic globe … a spinning top, gaudy with colour, representing perhaps the most ambitious idea possible, the world. Geography is a fundamental fascination. It is also a core component of a good education. Yet a lot of people are not too sure what it is. They stumble over the question ‘What is geography?’ Perhaps they are worried by the scale and the implications of the obvious answer. For geography is about the world.

  • Simply put, this book is about how nature is ‘done’, how it is practised, how it materializes as an active partner in and through those practices. Perhaps, unlike many other volumes, I am not especially concerned here with how nature is imagined, represented, thought or conceived. Rather, imagining, representing and thinking are treated as activities which take their place alongside many other practices (like growing, infecting, digging, counting), some of which do not have people at their centre. This last point is crucial.

  • This project has its origins in a conference on ecosystem services that Gretchen Daily of the Stanford Biology Department, Geoff Heal of the Columbia Business School, and Peter Raven, Director of the Missouri Botanical Gardens, organized at the Gardens in 1998. Having become intrigued by the concept of ecosystem services, which at the time was still relatively new even within ecological economics, the three of us eagerly attended and immediately noticed that, besides J. B., only one other lawyer was present in the audience of more than a hundred.

  • All geographic information systems (GIS) are built using formal models that describe how things are located in space. A formal model is an abstract and well-defined system of concepts. It defines the vocabulary that we can use to describe and reason about things. A geographic data model defines the vocabulary for describing and reasoning about the things that are located on the earth. Geographic data models serve as the foundation on which all geographic information systems are built. We are all familiar with one model for geographic information—the map.

  • The English Baccalaureate was introduced as a performance measure for schools in England in the 2010 performance tables. It is not a qualification. The measure recognises where pupils have achieved a C grade or better at GCSE in English, mathematics, history or geography, two sciences and a modern or ancient language. As this document demonstrates, the English Baccalaureate includes academic subjects highly valued by the Russell Group but it is not currently required for entry to any Russell Group university.

  • Laura Graham (2006) recently wrote that anthropologists are obligated to promote human rights and social justice. Her call to action, especially among vulnerable communities, is one felt in many disciplines. We take particular pleasure in the range of fields represented in this volume on cultural heritage and human rights: anthropology and archeology (Hugo Benavides, Jan French, Charles Orser, Anne Pyburn, Helaine Silverman, Laurajane Smith, Larry Zimmerman), architectural and landscape history (D. Fairchild Ruggles), landscape architecture and geography (James L. Wescoat, Jr.

  • The last decades have marked the beginning of a new era in Celestial Mechanics. The challenges came from several different directions. The stability theory of nearly–integrable systems (a class of problems which includes many models of Celestial Mechanics) profited from the breakthrough represented by the Kolmogorov– Arnold–Moser theory, which also provides tools for determining explicitly the parameter values allowing for stability.

  • Representatives from the Canadian Council on Social Development, Red por los Derechos de la Infancia en México (The Children’s Rights Network in Mexico), and the Annie E. Casey Foundation have come together to create the Children in North America Project based on our shared inter- est in the well-being of all children. We recognize that Canada, Mexico, and the United States have common bonds and challenges in ensuring that our children grow up healthy, not just because of geography, but also because of increasing economic, social, and cultural interaction. ...

  • The survey methodology is that used for the Gallup World Poll. Surveys are conducted face to face in economies where telephone coverage represents less than 80 percent of the population. In most economies the fieldwork is completed in two to four weeks. In economies where face-to-face surveys are conducted, the first stage of sampling is the identification of primary sampling units, consisting of clusters of households. The pri- mary sampling units are stratified by population size, geography, or both, and clustering is achieved through one or more stages of sampling.
