When her father leaves the Church in a crisis of conscience, Margaret Hale is uprooted from her comfortable home in Hampshire to move with her family to the north of England. Initially repulsed by the ugliness of her new surroundings in the industrial town of Milton, Margaret becomes aware of the poverty and suffering of the local mill workers and develops a passionate sense of social justice. This is intensified by her tempestuous relationship with the mill-owner and self-made man, John Thornton, as their fierce opposition over his treatment of his employees masks a deeper attraction. In North and South, Elizabeth Gaskell skillfully fuses individual feeling with social concern, and in Margaret Hale creates one of the most original heroines of Victorian literature.

These selected stories of fishing, travel and safaris explore the dynamics of group behavior, male bonding and thoughts concerning the remaining wildernes in an era of changing values and environmental crisis. The central themes include friendships, responsibility, change, self-evaluation, and the constant influences of bodies of water on the author. Beginning with fishing trips in the 1980's and 90's, Grove drifts into the present as he recounts his travels from Canada and the USA to Zambia, Zanzibar, and continental Tanzania. Through a series of short stories he moves from the self assuredness of his early forties into personal assessments and ponderings of his early sixties. Personal observations, social comment, humor, bounded exaggeration and the crankiness of aging accompanied by travelogue, complement his observations and thoughts along the way.

Improved dating methods have increased our ability to more precisely determine the timing and durations of glaciations. Utilizing glacial and loess deposits, we have compared glaciations that occurred in North and South America in order to determine if events are synchronous or not, to explore forcing mechanisms, and to compare glaciations with cold periods of the Marine Oxygen Isotope stages and the loess/paleosol records of China. Stratigraphic sections containing a variety of glacial deposits, some with interbedded volcanics, as well as loess deposits, were used in reconstructing the glacial history. The Late Pleistocene (Brunhes Chron) Last Glacial Maximum is recognized in mountain and continental areas of North America but only in the mountains of South America. Commonly our comparisons indicate roughly synchronous glaciations on the two continents, whereas other glaciations are more elusive and difficult to compare. Although our comparisons are at low resolutions, the results suggest that Milankovitch forcing is most likely the dominant trigger for hemispheric glaciation modified by local factors.

The newest title in the Princeton Architectural Press Campus Guide series takes readers on a tour of the University of Chicago, an institution that since its founding in 1890 has exerted a profound impact on American higher education. This elegantly written guide shows the campus as a wonderfully eccentric and vastly underappreciated element of Chicago s revered built environment. Designed in the English Gothic style of its time, the original campus, planned by Chicago architect Henry Ives Cobb, had a commonality of vision that made it equal in quality to the finest in America. As the traditional reliance on the Gothic gave way to modernist styles, the campus was expanded with buildings by such notable architects as Eero Saarinen, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Walter Netsch. The university's most recent additions include Cesar Pelli's 2003 Gerald Ratner Athletics Center and Rafael Vi oly's Graduate School of Business complex. Beautifully photographed in full color, the guide presents an architectural walk of this campus distinguished by landmark buildings.
