From its earliest days, the Virginia landscape has elicited dramatically contradictory descriptions. The sixteenth-century poet Michael Drayton exalted the land as "earth's onely paradise," while John Smith, in his reports to England, summarized the area around Jamestown as "a miserie, a ruine, a death, a hell." Drawing upon both familiar history and lesser-known material from deep geological time through the end of the seventeenth century, Stephen Adams focuses on both the physical changes to the land over time and the changes in the way people viewed Virginia. The Best and Worst Country in the World reaches well beyond previous accounts of early American views of the land with the inclusion of fascinating and important pre-1700 sources, Native American perceptions, and prehuman geography and geology. A blend of history, literature, geology, geography, and natural history, enriched by illustrations ranging from a dinosaur footprint to John Smith's famous "Map of Virginia," Adams's work offers an ecocritical exploration of the varied preconceptions that have shaped and colored the human relationship with "the best and worst country in the world"--the early Virginia landscape.

Le destin incroyable de Louis Zamperini, coureur olympique et vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Bientôt au cinéma ! Louis Zamperini est né en 1917 à New York. Quand il arrive en Californie, trois ans plus tard, il ne parle que l'italien. Dans un contexte de dépression économique, peu de perspectives d'avenir s'offrent à lui. C'est son inscription dans l'équipe scolaire de course de fond qui changera sa vie à tout jamais. Il devient alors une gloire locale et participe aux jeux Olympiques de 1936. Mais sa chance tourne en 1941, lorsqu'il s'engage dans l'armée. Après un bombardement japonais, son avion s'abîme dans le Pacifique et il est fait prisonnier. Dans les camps de travail, il est soumis à des conditions de vie atroces mais surtout à un tortionnaire vicieux et sadique. En véritable force de la nature, il survit à toutes ces épreuves. A son retour aux Etats-Unis, il est considéré par ses proches comme un héros. Toutefois, son traumatisme est tel qu'il plonge dans l'alcool et la violence. Sa rédemption vient alors de sa foi et de son premier amour : la course. Ce livre témoigne du parcours prodigieux d'un champion pris dans la tourmente d'une période historique chaotique.

Fishes have evolved to colonise almost every type of aquatic habitat and today they are a hugely diverse group of over 25,000 species. The evolution of this great diversity of species has resulted in a myriad of solutions to the demands posed by the aquatic environment. Ecological and Environmental Physiology of Fishes presents a current and comprehensive overview of fish physiology to demonstrate how living fishes function in their environment. As with other books in the Series, the emphasis is on the unique physiological characteristics of the fish, but with applications to questions of broad relevance in physiological ecology. A preliminary chapter introduces the aquatic environment and gives a general description of fish biology, evolution, and taxonomy. Subsequent sections discuss the particular problems of living in water, life in extreme environments, techniques for studying fish ecophysiology, and future research directions.
