This book, well illustrated, brings together information on the state of fodder oats worldwide, and is aimed mainly at agronomists and extension workers. It contains a series of regional studies focusing on oats used as fodder rather than grain. Oats are well adapted to areas of mild winters or cold climates with short growing seasons; their use is also expanding rapidly as a winter soil cover in subtropical South America. Oats have become very popular among smallscale farmers in Pakistan and...

That Martin Heidegger supported National Socialism has long been common knowledge. Yet the relation between his philosophy and political commitments remains highly contentious and recently has erupted into a vociferous debate. Boldly refuting arguments that the philosopher's political stance was accidental or adopted under coercion, Rockmore argues that Heidegger's philosophical thought and his Nazism are inseparably intertwined, that he turned to National Socialism on the basis of his...

Copepod crustaceans are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. They occur in every freeliving and parasitic aquatic niche. Copepods have been known since the time of Aristotle, yet there has never been a history of the study of copepods. This volume, the first in a planned threevolume series, reviews the discoveries of copepods to 1832, the year that the two distinct branches, the freeliving copepods longknown as insects and the parasitic copepods thought to be molluscs or worms were...

These enigmatic Neolithic structures date to around 3000 BC and were built by the Funnelbeaker, or TRB, people. The current interpretation of these monuments, however, is the result of over 400 years of megalithic research, the history of which is recorded in this book.The medieval idea that only giants could have put the huge boulders of which they were made into position was...

The female pharaoh Hatshepsut reigned for nearly twenty years during Egypt's early New Kingdom in the fifteenth century B.C. First acting as regent for her young nephew/stepson Thutmose III, she in time assumed the title of king and exercised the full powers of the throne as senior coruler. In accordance with Egyptian tradition, Hatshepsut was often depicted as a male king.
