The Making of the Modern Marine Corps
http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674058279 The Marine Corps has always considered itself a breed apart. Since 1775 America's smallest armed service has been suspicious of outsiders and deeply loyal to its traditions.

O'Connell, Assistant Professor of History at the United States Naval Academy and a lieut

Course Threads: Influencing Innovation
The Course Thread Program allows UC Berkeley undergraduates to explore intellectual themes that connect courses across departments and disciplines. Without creating new majors or minors, the program instead highlights connections between existing courses. Course Threads help students see the value in educational breadth while also pursuing a more in-depth and well-rounded knowledge on one particular topic. Course Thread topics include: Human Rights, Cultural Forms in Transit, The Historical & Mo

Chris Schommer-Pries: Dualizability in Low Dimensional Higher Category Theory (Part 1)
Chris Schommer-Pries (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Abstract: The cobordism hypothesis establishes a powerful relationship between extended topological field theories taking values in a symmetric monoidal higher category and objects in that higher category with various kinds of duality. In this setting an extended topological field theory is a higher categorical extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms which allows for topological bordisms to be decomposed along submanifolds of arbitrary c
