Penguins of the World PDF Books

Penguins of the World

The internationally successful movie March of the Penguins showcases the life of these fascinating flightless birds that have become such prominent symbols of the fragile nature of our ecosystem. Faced with global warming, invasive tourism, pollution and loss of habitat, penguins -- if they are to survive -- need protection more than ever.

Over the past 18 years, Wayne Lynch has traveled to Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand and a dozen remote island clusters in the tempestuous Southern Ocean, studying and photographing all 17 species of penguins in their natural habitats. In Penguins of the World, he documents the extraordinary life cycles of these tough, resourceful and beautiful animals in the harshest environments imaginable.

This second edition has been revised, redesigned and expanded, with detailed information and the latest facts and statistics on:

  • Anatomy
  • Egg and chick development
  • Mating and feeding habits
  • Predators
  • Habitats
  • Climate change
  • Changes to food levels.

Through his engaging text and on-location photographs, Wayne Lynch captures these birds in their wide variety of activities and behaviors. Penguins of the World will appeal to anyone interested in birds, nature and science.

Everyday Talk, Second Edition: Building and Reflecting Identities (English Edition) PDF Books

Everyday Talk, Second Edition: Building and Reflecting Identities (English Edition)

This engaging text explores how everyday talk--the ordinary kinds of communicating that people do in schools, workplaces, and among family and friends--expresses who we are and who we want to be. The authors interweave rhetorical and cultural perspectives on the "little stuff" of conversation: what we say and how we say it, the terms used to refer to others, the content and style of stories we tell, and more. Numerous detailed examples show how talk is the vehicle through which people build relationships. Students gain skills for thinking more deeply about their own and others' communicative practices, and for understanding and managing interactional difficulties.

Russlands Unbrauchbare Vergangenheit: Nationalismus Und Aussenpolitik Im Zarenreich PDF Books

Russlands Unbrauchbare Vergangenheit: Nationalismus Und Aussenpolitik Im Zarenreich

Einen weiten Bogen von Peter dem Grossen bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg spannend, wird der Zusammenhang von Aussenpolitik und Nationalismus im zarischen Russland untersucht. Neue Quellen aus dem Archiv des russischen Aussenministeriums und ein frischer Blick auf Ideen- und Diplomatiegeschichte ermoglichen die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit den Traditionen und Mustern russischer Aussenpolitik und Identitat vor der Revolution. Neu ist insbesondere die starkere Ausleuchtung der Fruhphase des russischen Nationalismus im 18. Jahrhundert. So gelang es vor allem Katharina II., das konzeptionelle Gerust des russischen Nationalismus zu errichten und aus dem Partizipationsversprechen der modernen Nationsvorstellung eine anti-moderne und monarchiezentrierte Legitimation der Autokratie zu machen. Ihre 'brauchbare Vergangenheit' Russlands etablierte auch den Gedanken einer 'historischen Mission' - die Befreiung Konstantinopels und der Balkanchristen von den Turken. Im Verlauf des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde allerdings immer deutlicher, dass diese Verknupfung des russischen Nationalismus mit der Autokratie und einer aussenpolitischen Zielvorstellung dem inneren Modernisierungsdruck und den europaischen Grossmachtekonflikten nicht gewachsen war. Dieser russische Sonderweg erwies sich als eine 'unbrauchbare Vergangenheit' und fuhrte mit zur Revolution von 1917.
