Humankind, Society, and the Environment: Lessons of the Past and Responsibility to the Future

Credentials: 

Head, Department of Chemical Engineering, Sami Shamoon College of Engineering

Our world is the product of many changes. Evolutionary processes of matter and energy have altered the natural environment. Revolutionary changes created by humans have alienated man from nature and changed the relationship between them in fundamental ways. These processes, led by urbanization and industrialization, have also eroded natural resources, polluted the air, land, and water, reduced biodiversity, and caused climate change. All of these transformations threaten the existence of humanity as we know it and endanger the whole of nature.

Russia's Geostrategic Outlook and the Syrian Crisis (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Tohme, Hicham, Ph.D., Sheffield University

Credentials: 

Instructor in History and Media Studies, American University of Beirut

In this groundbreaking study, international relations scholar Hicham Tohme offers a critique of current academic, scholarly, and public understandings of Russia’s geostrategic outlook through the lens of the ongoing Syrian crisis. This critique is based on a reassessment of four key concepts that shape our knowledge of Russia’s foreign policy. First, the Westphalian state system is an inadequate a point of reference when applied to a country that still perceives itself and behaves as an empire.

Kadya Molodowsky: The Life of a Jewish Woman Writer

Author: 

Newman, Zelda Kahan

Credentials: 

Lehman College/CUNY

Based on detailed archival research in three countries, Zelda Kahan Newman tells the story of Kadya Molodowsky, the most prolific woman writer of Yiddish. A feminist before feminism was a movement, Molodowsky wrote poems that still circulate today.

Molodowsky was caught up in nearly all the cataclysms of twentieth century Jewry: the chaos of World War I, an inter-war pogrom, a narrow escape from Nazi Europe, migration to the US, and a failed attempt at life in the young state of Israel.

Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of "American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919"

The Second World War was to Alaska what the First World War had been to the nation. The essential reality of Alaska’s experience during World War II was the end of its isolation from the continental United States. As a consequence of the war, Alaska’s territorial era entered its twilight years, eclipsed by the dawn of statehood nineteen years later and driven largely by military imperatives. A further legacy was Alaska’s inevitably

A History of Alaska, Volume II: Alaska On the Road to War

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of *American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

The most significant military development to touch Alaska during the interwar years was the advent of air power, an innovation that completely altered Alaska's strategic position. Suddenly the world became smaller as areas once thought safely distant from potential enemies became vulnerable. Nowhere was this more evident than in the Pacific, whose countless islands became potential advanced air bases.

A History of Alaska, Volume I: From Old and New Frontiers to the Changing Strategic Balance

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M., Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

As a unique, distant geographical region of the United States, Alaska has evolved from military insignificance to high strategic priority in the 142 years since its purchase from Russia in 1867. The reasons for this dramatic shift derive from a correlation of geography, foreign policy, domestic politics, and military technology.
