With a view toward the heritage of North American Industry, A Bibliographic Guide to North American Industry: History, Health, and Hazardous Waste provides recommended readings in historical and contemporary literature related to the origins of specific industries, the health and safety issues they face, and how they manage waste and prevent pollution. It encompasses three areas of industry that are critical to understanding the whole of industry: historical development, protection of worker health, and management of associated hazardous substances and materials. This publication serves the reference needs of researchers examining issues of historical development of industry, worker exposure to hazardous substances and materials, and historic and contemporary management of hazardous wastes. The book is unique in using the North American Industrial Classification System as a framework for organizing bibliographic entries. Attorneys, historians, economists, and all others interested in historical and contemporary issues facing North American industry find here a useful and important resource.

Release Date: 2011-02-09
Genre: Social Science

Die vergleichende Politikwissenschaft ist eine Teildisziplin der Politikwissenschaft, deren Selbstverständnis sich durch die vergleichende Methode ergibt. Oftmals ist die vergleichende Methode in der Politikwissenschaft der einzig gangbare Weg, um generalisierbare Aussagen über gesellschaftspolitische Prozesse zu treffen. Allerdings ist ein systematischer Vergleich voraussetzungsvoll und es müssen verschiedene Faktoren beachtet werden, um die vergleichende Methode in der Politikwissenschaft Gewinn bringend anwenden zu können. Dieses Lehrbuch stellt die umfassendste deutschsprachige Monographie zur vergleichenden Politikwissenschaft dar. Dabei gibt der Autor einen vertiefenden Überblick über Gegenstandsbereiche, Logik, Theorien und Methoden der vergleichenden Politikwissenschaft. Die anwendungsorientierte Einführung eröffnet die Möglichkeit, die vergleichende Politikwissenschaft in ihren Grundzügen zu verstehen und gibt Anleitung, spezifisches Wissen zu vertiefen. Das Buch wendet sich sowohl an Studienanfänger als auch an Fortgeschrittene.

Volume I contains a brief review of adsorption history and its development for practical purposes up until now. It also presents some important information on adsorbents and catalysts as well as on the methods of their characterization. The part of this volume dealing with practical industrial applications includes chapters presenting advanced technical tools for high capacity adsorption separation of liquid and gas mixtures, development of new adsorbents for removal of hazardous contaminants from combustion flue gases and wastewaters, degasification of coal seams and fabrication of inorganic membranes and their applications. A comprehensive review is also included on contemporary utility of self-assembled monolayers, adsorption proteins and their role in modern industry, adsorption methods in technology of optical fibre glasses, sol-gel technology, solid desiccant dehumidification systems, etc. The articles give both the scientific backgrounds of the phenomena discussed and emphasize their practical aspects. The chapters give not only brief current knowledge about the studied problems, but are also a source of topical literature on the subject. A comprehensive bibliography on adsorption principles, design data and adsorbent materials for industrial applications for the period 1967-1997 concludes the book.
