The Origins of the Revolution: Marx and Eastern Europe [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Timothy Snyder | Marx and Engels tended to be romantics about East European liberation from imperial rule in the nineteenth century, but the period of nominally Marxist rule in the twentieth is one of oppression. The theorists imagined a revolution that would spread from Germany to the East, yet history brought a revolution that arose in Russia and then spread to the West.

3.4 Environmental effects of reservoir construction

Reservoirs may totally alter the water resources of a country. Before the Aswan Dam was completed in Egypt, more than half of the 8 × 1010 m3 of water that flowed down the River Nile through Egypt each year ran into the sea. Most of the water can now be used in Egypt, mainly for irrigation, and instead of a single annual crop grown after seasonal flooding, more than one crop can be grown each year. However, advantages such as these must be considered in conjunction with

Molecular Science: Spectrometry
Chemistry is of enormous importance in everyday life: almost everything that exists, and all that we see, make and eat is composed of molecules. The unravelling of molecular structure is a key activity of chemists. In these three video tracks, Dr Mike Bullivant looks briefly at three of the spectroscopic techniques that are used to determine the structure of chemical compounds - infrared spectroscopy, proton (1H) and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (nmr) spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry.

2.1 Crown gall disease: genetic engineering in nature

A. tumefaciens causes crown gall disease in a wide range of dicotyledonous plants. (Dicotyledonous plants, are also known as dicots, have broad leaves with branching veins. An example would be a broad leaved tree like an oak. Narrow leaved plants with parallel grains such as grasses are known as monocotyledonous plant or monocots.) The infection normally occurs at the site of a wound in the plant. The disease gains its name from the large tumour-like swellings, or galls, that oc

The global energy challenge
A stable and sustainable energy supply is one of the major issues of this Century. World-energy demand is expected to increase by about 70% in the coming 20 years, while the production of petroleum   - our main source of energy - is likely to peak in this period. The combination of rising demand and declining production of conventional oil raises the question: What is the plan? In the absence of a plan for a sustainable energy supply, coal and non-conventional oil are likely to become the m
