Melbourne’s Water Catchments: Perspectives on a World-Class Water Supply
This book charts the history of the water catchments and water supply for the city of Melbourne, which has many unique aspects that are a critical part of the history of Melbourne, Victoria and Australia. Much of the development of the water supply system was many decades ahead of its time and helped buffer the city of Melbourne from major diseases, droughts and water shortages.

The authors present a chronology of the evolution of the catchment and water supply system pre-1900 to today. They discuss major developments, policies, and construction and management activities. Each chapter is illustrated with historical black and white images and also newly taken photos that contrast present scenes with those from the past.

The book includes many extraordinary insights into current and future issues with Melbourne's water supply, including issues associated with the highly controversial north-south pipeline, the desalination plant and the potential for further diversions of the Yarra River.

KEY FEATURES

The Columbia Guide to America in the 1960s By David Farber, Beth Bailey
Publisher: Col.umbia Univ,ersity Pre,ss 2001 | 448 Pages | ISBN: 0231113722 | PDF | 1 MB

The Columbia Guide to America in the 1960s
Eminent historians Farber (Age of Great Dreams) and Bailey (Sex in the Heartland) present an accessible, state-of-the-art overview of the turbulent Sixties. Part narrative history and interpretation, part almanac, chronology, and glossary, the book offers an introspective yet entertaining investigation for those who remember the age as well as for those just being introduced to it. The most stimulating chapter includes essays by contributing scholars who assess the legacies of the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, the New Left, the women's movement, and the sexual revolution. An excellent glossary, which includes one-paragraph to one-page views of well-known political leaders and such cultural icons as Twiggy, the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and Janis Joplin, bolsters Farber's somewhat sketchy historical summary.

Howard Andrew Knox: Pioneer of Intelligence Testing at Ellis Island

FREEDownload : Howard Andrew Knox: Pioneer of Intelligence Testing at Ellis Island

John T.E. Richardson, "Howard Andrew Knox: Pioneer of Intelligence Testing at Ellis Island"
2011 | ISBN-10: 0231141688 | 352 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Howard Andrew Knox: Pioneer of Intelligence Testing at Ellis Island
Howard Andrew Knox (1885-1949) served as assistant surgeon at Ellis Island during the 1910s, administering a range of verbal and nonverbal tests to determine the mental capacity of potential immigrants. An early proponent of nonverbal intelligence testing (largely through the use of formboards and picture puzzles), Knox developed an evaluative approach that today informs the techniques of practitioners and researchers. Whether adapted to measure intelligence and performance in children, military recruits, neurological and psychiatric patients, or the average job applicant, Knox's pioneering methods are part of contemporary psychological practice and deserve in-depth investigation.
Completing the first biography of this unjustly overlooked figure, John T. E. Richardson, former president of the International Society for the History of the Neurosciences, takes stock of Knox's understanding of intelligence and his legacy beyond Ellis Island. Consulting published and unpublished sources, Richardson establishes a chronology of Knox's life, including details of his medical training and his time as a physician for the U.S. Army. He describes the conditions that gave rise to intelligence testing, including the public's concern that the United States was opening its doors to the mentally unfit. He then recounts the development of intelligence tests by Knox and his colleagues and the widely-discussed publication of their research. Their work presents a useful and extremely human portrait of psychological testing and its limits, particularly the predicament of the people examined at Ellis Island. Richardson concludes with the development of Knox's work in later decades and its changing application in conjunction with modern psychological theory.
