The Subaltern Learns to Speak: African Voice and the Haitian Revolution in The Kingdom of this World
The subaltern may not be able to speak in a world inundated by Western philosophy, thought, and political organization, but in The Kingdom of This World, Alejo Carpentier offers the possibility of unlearning the language of the hegemony. In this novel, African voice solidifies African resistance in Haiti, and that voice is symbolized through the novel's agnus dei, Ti Noel. This African slave's first words are a daring question that begins to highlight his potential for rebelli

Topics in Medieval Japanese History
This book differs from many other textbooks in that it contains relatively less political, institutional and military history and relatively more social and cultural history than is typically the case. Within the cultural history of medieval Japan, Buddhism is of the utmost importance. This book therefore contains an introduction to the origin and major teachings of Buddhism. Subsequent chapters expand on this introduction in the context of Japanese history.

A Debate about the Definition of 'Britishness'
As the composition of British society transforms with immigration and transnational identities, ideas about the notion of 'Britishness' are changing too. In the interest of a cohesive citizenry, must the UK return to 'core British values'? Or should Britain's identity change with its population? Should a British identity even exist? Sir Bernard Crick is emeritus professor of Birkbeck College and author of Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship, the basis for the UK citizenship exam

The Ideas that are Changing Politics
There has been an extraordinary surge in the study of behaviour from evolutionary biologists, neurologists and game theorists, but this has been largely divorced from the political debate. David Willetts will draw on the latest research from these disciplines to explain what Government can and cannot do to influence our behaviour. David Willetts is shadow secretary of state for innovation, universities and skills and has been the MP for Havant since 1992. He was shadow secretary of state for wor

Evaluating cardiac gene expression in maternal phenylketonuria offspring
Maternal phenylketonuria (MPKU) is a teratogenic syndrome, caused by development of offspring in a uterine environment made toxic by the metabolic imbalance of PKU. The birth defects resulting from untreated MPKU include microcephaly with concomitant mental retardation, growth retardation, and congenital heart defects. Congenital heart defects have been identified and characterized in MPKU offspring, using the BTBR-PAHenu2 mouse MPKU model. Subsequently, this mouse model was used to start invest

The effects of phonotactic and orthotactic probabilities on orthographic fast-mapping in kindergarte
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the linguistic components of phonotactic and orthotactic probability affected children’s ability to fast-map orthographic information and whether orthographic processing explained unique variance on children’s literacy skills above and beyond that of phonological processing. Moreover, the current study examined whether kindergarten children with and without typical language abilities were differentially affected by linguistic processes on read

Where the two kingdoms merge: the struggle for balance between national and religious identity among
When the German Reich was created in 1871, it was an artificial construct born of Hohenzollern power projection and not of nationalism. Otto von Bismarck’s Realpolitik used the power of nationalism to unite Germans behind the Kaiser, but also divisively to keep liberals and potential opponents of the Kaiser firmly divided. The Kulturkampf was one such set of policies that attempted to suppress Catholic political authority while dividing Germany’s religious groups against one another. The Kul

Finite element modeling of energy absorption characteristic of hybrid structure - composite wrapped
The study of axial crush behavior of metal and composite tube has become a basis for the design of crashworthy structure in automotive and aircraft applications. Unlike metals, polymer composite material displays little or no plastic deformation characteristics. Research has showed that the hybrid tube usually made of inner aluminum tube over-wrapped with Eglass fiber reinforced epoxy have significantly higher energy absorption than either aluminum tube or composite tube. It is therefore importa

Chinese Exclusion Act
Starting with the Gold Rush, Chinese migrated to California and other regions of the United States in search of work. As several photographs show, many Chinese found work in the gold mines and on the railroads. They accepted $32.50 a month to work on the Union Pacific in Wyoming in 1870 for the same job that paid white workers $52 a month. This led to deep resentment by the whites, who felt the Chinese were competing unfairly for jobs. White labor unions blamed the Chinese for lower wages and la
