DER SPIEGEL 51/1984 - Weltkrieg '85 Der dritte Weltkrieg, meinen Schweizer Planstrategen, bricht in Griechenland aus. Athen reagierte böse. * Das Szenario war ebenso schreckenerregend wie weltumspannend. In Griechenland fälscht - wer täte so was wohl sonst? Die Linken lassen sich aber nicht, wie anno 67, einfach von der Macht vertreiben. So stellte sich der Divisionär Gustav Däniker, Stabschef Operative Schulung des eidgenössischen Milizheeres und früher in der Werbebranche tätig, den Ausbruch des dritten Weltkriegs vor. Und so geht's weiter rund im Däniker-Schocker: Nato-Nachbar Türkei sperrt die Meerenge der Dardanellen, landet auf den Griecheninseln Limnos und Rhodos, kassiert auch gleich noch den griechischen Teil Zyperns. Zehntausende Griechen fliehen übers Meer nach Italien. In Spanien übernimmt das Militär die Macht. Ganz schlimm ergeht es dadurch der neutralen Schweiz. Da bricht "Verwirrung" aus bei den Älplern. Nirgendwo herrscht mehr Zucht. So geriet die Alpen-Saga jäh zu hochpolitischem Ärger.

Sport and Society Blog Simone Bacchini writes: It sometimes feels like the case for sport as a vehicle for social change is a bit overstated. Yet, the announcement that London has bid to host the 2018 Gay Games ( might be, well, a game changer. The Gay Games was started in San Francisco, in 1982. Originally, it was called “Gay Olympics” but a lawsuit filed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) meant that the name had to be changed. Sporting events for minority groups, some of them facing varying degrees of discrimination have a double function. Sport is one of the favourite arenas in which socially approved norms of gender behaviour are displayed, learned, and reinforced. Obviously, for many LGBT people sport has never been an issue: they simply aren’t interested. The Paralympics has been an important tool in changing views of and attitudes towards disability.

Thèses via l'ABES Untold Lives Continuing with the series on William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), we look here at his lifelong interest in botany and some of the items now available to researchers through the British Library catalogue. Botany was one of Talbot’s favourite fields of study although he pursued it only as an occasional interest. Nevertheless he was extremely knowledgeable and held in high regard. From the age of 14, Talbot maintained a lively correspondence with eminent botanists such as Lewis Weston Dillwyn (1778-1855) and Sir William Jackson Hooker (1785-1865), and later with Reverend James Dalton (1764-1843). In 1823 and 1826 Talbot chartered expeditions to Corfu and the Ionian Islands collecting plants which he then spent the following years studying and classifying. Talbot was also interested in botanical specimens collected by others and he often exchanged notes, seeds and herbaria with other botanists, both amateur and professional.

Sound Recordings Blog Cheryl Tipp, Natural Sounds Curator writes: Over the past 5 weeks, listeners of BBC Radio 4 have been treated to a series dedicated entirely to sound and its many roles in human culture over the past 100,000 years. Noise: a Human History, written and presented by Professor David Hendy and made in collaboration with the British Library's Sound Archive, has explored a multitude of subjects, from the power of great orators to the significance of resonant spaces. Episode 25, Capturing Sound, looks at new technologies that emerged during the latter half of the 19th Century, making it possible to record and thereby transform sound from something previously transient and elusive. The British Library has an extensive collection of both early recordings and the equipment used to record and playback these sounds.

Native North American language materials The British Library has significant holdings of older printed materials relevant to the study of the indigenous languages of North America (the continental United States, Canada and Greenland). Recent estimates suggest that there are some 380 pre-20th century books and pamphlets which are entirely or largely in these languages. This figure includes early printed dictionaries and linguistic studies. Scope of the holdings | Access | BibliographiesMaterials elsewhere in the British Library Se Qeo Yah. Scope of the holdings Most language groups are represented, although the majority of the books held relate to languages spoken by peoples who have been in contact with European settlers for the longest, namely Algonquian (mostly Massachusett, Lenape, Cree, Ojibwe), Iroquoian (Mohawk, Cherokee), and the Inuit languages (mainly those of Greenland and Labrador).

Americas Collections Blog As a historian I get very excited about old letters, diaries, account books and inventories – but once in a while there are other ‘records’ that trump almost everything else. I had one of those moments this week when I returned to George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Over the past six years I have been many times to Washington’s estate in Virginia (just south of Washington DC) – first to research my book Founding Gardeners and then to give talks about the book. By now I go there to see the changes in the gardens (of which there are many, such as the fabulous restoration of the Upper Garden) and to meet my friend Dean Norton who is the Director of Horticulture there. Dean always makes a huge effort to entertain me – for example, by taking me out on the Potomac in a boat or letting me drive around the estate with a gator [A John Deere utility vehicle, not a reptile - ed.]. Last Wednesday’s visit, however, was one of the most memorable. It took four days to take the giant down – with a crane.

Military Theory of War, Warfare Theory, Principles of War, Military Strategy, Theories, Theorists Never neglect the psychological, cultural, political, and human dimenstions of warfare, which is inevitably tragic, inefficient, and uncertain. Be skeptical of systems analysis, computer models, game theories, or doctrines that suggest otherwise. --- Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, speech at NDU, 29 Sep 2008 Read and reread the campaigns of Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar, Gustaphus Adolphus, Turenne and Frederick; take them as your model; that is the only way of becoming a Great Captain, to obtain the secrets of the art of war. --- Napoleon The personality of the general is indispensable, he is the head, he is the all of an army.

Endangered Archives Programme French-Canadian Collections The British Library acquires extensively from the published output of French Canada. Historical note Acquisition from this area began in 1764 (immediately after the printing press arrived in Quebec in the wake of the British conquest) but items obtained were very few in number and remained so until the 1850s when organised rather than sporadic acquisition became possible. From then onwards, progress was sustained, if somewhat restrained, until the early 1950s when greatly increased resources, the enormous growth and better bibliographic documentation of new French-Canadian publications as well as the steady development of an antiquarian market in French-Canadian imprints made possible the creation of the collections currently held by the British Library. Nature of the collections However acquired, about 80% of these publications come from the Province of Quebec. French-Canadian publishing does not compete with publishing in metropolitan France. Collection policy Access to the collections

EthOS-Beta, the Electronic Theses Online Service (British Library 2011b). Not only does this database store recently produced dissertations, which were produced electronically from the beginning, but EthOS is also in the process of arranging the scanning and storage of dissertations which were produced before the digital age. The system currently has over a quarter of a million dissertations for consultation, and in order to expand this, universities are being encouraged to require their research students to submit dissertations electronically. The system has revolutionized the availability of research dissertations, since students can now consult the full text of the dissertation at a considerable distance from the library at which it is stored. Previously, only one person at a time could study the dissertation, but now many people can read the dissertation simultaneously. It also means that expensive shelf space in libraries can be used for other materials.
