Zebulon Pike: Great American Explorer Or Climate Spy?, Merlin P. Lawson, Randall Cerveny, Cary Mock 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Zebulon Pike: Great American Explorer Or Climate Spy?, Merlin P. Lawson, Randall Cerveny, Cary Mock

Papers in the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Zebulon Pike is known in history books as one of America’s heroes—a great explorer whose adventures in the American West rivaled the Lewis and Clark Expedition and who became the namesake for Colorado’s Pike’s Peak.

Evidence from Pike’s famed expedition in ...

El Poder En La Nueva Guatemala: La Disputa Sobre Los Alcaldes De Barrio, 1761-1821, Jordana Dym 2009 Skidmore College

El Poder En La Nueva Guatemala: La Disputa Sobre Los Alcaldes De Barrio, 1761-1821, Jordana Dym

Jordana Dym

"La introducción de alcaldes de barrio en Nueva Guatemala, capital del reino de Guatemala, a finales del siglo XVIII, inició veinte años de pleitos entre el capitán general, la Audiencia, el Cabildo y varios inmigrantes españoles sobre la posición de esta nueva institución de seguridad pública dentro del sistema de organismos de gobierno reales y locales. ¿Dependerían los alcaldes de barrio del Cabildo, autoridad tradicional de policía, o de la Audiencia? ¿Quiénes serían aptos para el servicio, españoles "honrados", "distinguidos", o simplemente "vecinos" del barrio? ¿Qué sería igual a o menor al honor de servir en este nuevo cargo honorífico ...

El Regimen De Stroessner (1954-1989), Robert Andrew Nickson

Robert Andrew Nickson

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
