Release Date: 1903
Genre: Science

The Laboratory that bears the Cold Spring Harbor name is famous for its research, its role in science education, and the science that won three recent Nobel prizes. This book, an intellectual history of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, can be enjoyed by anyone interested in the development of contemporary science, regardless of technical background. It is assembled on the foundation of twenty research papers published between 1903 and 1969. Now hard to track down, they are reproduced in facsimile and accompanied by a series of essays by Jan Witkowski describing the investigations that were done, who did them, and why they were important. This handsome volume will appeal to students, established scientists, and others intrigued not only by the history of research at Cold Spring Harbor but also by an extraordinary period in the flowering of American science.

Br Blue Type 4 Diesel Power

Author: Gordon Wright
Publisher: Noodle Books
ISBN: 1906419604
Release Date: 2011-02-24
Genre: Transportation

The Rail Blue color scheme dominated Britain's railways for almost twenty years and was considered somewhat drab and lifeless, especially when compared with the colorful variety of livery styles that had appeared on many of the new diesel and electric locomotive types since their introduction in the 1950s and 1960s. However, it is now clear that what the fleet may have lacked in color, it certainly made up for in variety, as during those “blue years” and compared to today, a host of different classes were to be witnessed plying their trade all over the country on a wide range of freight, passenger, and parcels workings. This latest volume in the BR Blue series, compiled by Gordon Wright, concentrates on the diesel classes within the Type 4 power range. All of the above helps to create a fitting celebration of a time that, in retrospect, is seen to be one of the most interesting and enjoyable on Britain's railways.
