Preface This dictionary is intended to facilitate communication in agricultural and environmental sciences. Both of these broad sciences deal with the environment but in very different ways. People working in these areas need to be able to communicate with each other clearly and effectively. Too often, however, the tendency is to develop special terms and usages that are understood within a particular group but that fail to convey their unique meanings to persons outside the group. Roy Donahue was an educator and writer in the field of soil science and had broad interests in all fields of agriculture and environmental science. He taught for many years at Michigan State University and accepted long-term international assignments in India and Africa. He undertook this project to help bridge the gap that has often existed between the terminologies used in these two broad subject areas, as well as the gaps that often exist between scientists and practitioners in both areas. He spent approximately ten years compiling terms and definitions from many sources. His emphasis was on special and unique terms and usages, including unusual words and short phrases along with special usages of common words. Words and usages that were not included in standard dictionaries were of special interest to him as he compiled his material. Dr. Donahue asked me to complete the project. As a professor of agronomy at Iowa State University with a background in soil science and an emphasis on soil conservation, I, too, had worked abroad in Uruguay, Argentina, and Morocco. I was able to provide an additional viewpoint and the advantage of being an experienced computer user. I edited and revised Dr. Donahue's work, verifying the meanings by consulting various dictionaries, textbooks, other books, and online references, especially the compilation of hundreds of dictionaries compiled on the OneLook site. I made sure that all of the definitions were consistent with materials already published, but they were rewritten for a consistent style and to avoid plagiarism. In the process, I reviewed volumes of environmental and agricultural literature, expanded the material by adding thousands of entries, and designated the parts of speech and derivations for most of the words. It should be noted that the derivations are provided mainly to clarify the source and meaning of the words and do not constitute complete etymologies. Many of the definitions are not unique to agricultural and environmental sciences but are needed to show that the word or phrase might be used in ways other than its unique scientific meaning. Dr. Donahue's illustrations were mostly photographs and artwork from government sources. I used many of them and supplemented them with photographs, my own artwork, and clip art. All photographs and drawings not otherwise credited on the Figure Credits page are mine. Dr. Donahue initiated this project and his input into the work was considerable, but regrettably he did not live to see this dictionary published. The final form therefore became my responsibility. Users' comments and suggestions are welcome and will be taken into consideration for any future editions that may be undertaken. In spite of all the effort that went into this dictionary, there are certainly many more terms and usages that could be added. Such a project can never be regarded as final and complete, but the current form should be useful to many people. Frederick R. Troeh Ames, Iowa August 2002

An insightful, very readable book. The father of military alcoholism treatment tells about his own life and recovery from alcoholism, and describes how he set up the first officially sanctioned military treatment programs for alcoholics in the 1940s and 50s, when the Alcoholics Anonymous movement was first spreading across the United States. A survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor, he almost died after the war from his own out-of-control drinking. Using his own recovery as a guide, he persuaded the Air Force to appoint him full time to working with other alcoholics. The success story which he and psychiatrist Dr. Louis Jolyon West related in the American Journal of Psychiatry in 1956 was distributed all across the country by the National Council on Alcoholism.If you think that you may have a problem with alcohol or drugs yourself, this book can save your life. The author describes in simple terms the processes which drive people to drink and use drugs, and the route to recovery. He talks about genetics, physical addiction, and the social and psychological pressures which produce subconscious conflicts and massive guilt in alcohol and drug abusers. For mental health professionals, he discusses the relationship between the twelve step program and basic psychiatric principles, and shows how the professionals and the A.A. and N.A. groups can work together to produce impressive recovery rates.This A.A. old-timer (fifty-five years sober) also talks about his early mentor Mrs. Marty Mann, the first woman to gain long-term sobriety in A.A. He describes his conversations with Sister Ignatia and the good old-timers in Akron, Ohio, his work with the noted alcohol researcher E. M. Jellinek at the Yale School of Alcohol Studies, and the way early A.A. meetings were organized and conducted. His book is a lasting monument to those early years, when it was first discovered that alcoholics could be saved.

Cora ist nur eine von unzähligen Schwarzen, die auf den Baumwollplantagen Georgias schlimmer als Tiere behandelt werden. Alle träumen von der Flucht – doch wie und wohin? Da hört Cora von der Underground Railroad, einem geheimen Fluchtnetzwerk für Sklaven. Über eine Falltür gelangt sie in den Untergrund und es beginnt eine atemberaubende Reise, auf der sie Leichendieben, Kopfgeldjägern, obskuren Ärzten, aber auch heldenhaften Bahnhofswärtern begegnet. Jeder Staat, den sie durchquert, hat andere Gesetze, andere Gefahren. Wartet am Ende wirklich die Freiheit? Colson Whiteheads Roman ist eine virtuose Abrechnung damit, was es bedeutete und immer noch bedeutet, schwarz zu sein in Amerika.

On the surface, "wartime" is a period of time in which a society is at war. But we now live in what President Obama has called "an age without surrender ceremonies," where it is no longer easy to distinguish between times of war and times of peace. In this inventive meditation on war, time, and the law, Mary Dudziak argues that wartime is not as discrete a time period as we like to think. Instead, America has been engaged in some form of ongoing overseas armed conflict for over a century. Meanwhile policy makers and the American public continue to view wars as exceptional events that eventually give way to normal peace times. This has two consequences: first, because war is thought to be exceptional, "wartime" remains a shorthand argument justifying extreme actions like torture and detention without trial; and second, ongoing warfare is enabled by the inattention of the American people. More disconnected than ever from the wars their nation is fighting, public disengagement leaves us without political restraints on the exercise of American war powers.
