In the analysis of Hill's poetry and critical ideas, Vincent Sherry illuminates Hill's often obscure and oblique language, drawing connections between the rich verbal textures of the verse and the poet's recurring concerns as a critic. The author focuses on Hill's work in the context of postwar British literature and relates it to American as well as British extensions of literary modernism. The result is an engaging and far-ranging study of one of England's most contemporary poets.
"Quality Maintenance in Stored Grains and Seeds " was first published in 1986. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
Storage molds are a major cause of quality loss in grains and seeds held in farm bins and tanks, in commercial elevators and warehouses, and in barge and ship transport. The damage done by these storage molds is at first invisible, but later shows up as caking, mustiness, total spoilage of part or all of the grain, and heating - sometimes to the temperature of ignition. The authors, both of whom have had extensive first-hand field and laboratory experience with these grain storage fungi and the problems they cause, summarize in readable and readily understandable form the basic principles and specific practices to be followed in order to minimize such losses.
Chapters are devoted to grain grades and quality; storage fungi; conditions that promote or prevent loss in quality; spoilage in barge and ship transport; mycotoxins (toxic compounds produced by fungi growing in grains and feeds) and mycotoxicoses (the diseases caused in animals that consume such toxic products); insects, mites, and storage fungi, quality control; and identification of storage fungi as an aid in evaluation of grain condition and storability.

The Alpine Journal is the oldest publication of its kind, this year celebrating its 151st anniversary. It was created as a record of mountain exploration and has maintained that tradition.This edition, Volume 118, contains accounts of rock climbing, mountaineering and exploration in the high and wild places across the continents from the Antarctic to Canada, Europe to High Asia.The remit of the Journal is broader than just climbing action, with in-depth articles on mountain science, politics, environment, art and history. So augmenting the astonishing tales of adventure by the likes of Leo Houlding and Alastair Lee in Antarctica and records of Alpine Club members' ground-breaking achievements worldwide, we have stunning paintings by mountain artist Tim Pollard, a history of filming in the harshest of environments by John Cleare and a fascinating explanation of the recent geological history of the Himalaya and Tibet from eminent geologist Mike Searle.An essential element of the Alpine Journal has always been the record of achievements in the high mountains and the Area Notes section is, as usual, packed with vital information for the mountaineer. This year Simon Richardson has provided an extensive report on two remarkable winter seasons' worth of first ascents by the country's top activists.Climbing's unrivalled literature is catered for in an extensive book review section
Brave and fascinating, as well as important . . . . A scholarly and
comprehensive contribution to our growing knowledge of the history
Recent years have seen enormous attention devoted to the history of sexuality in the Western world. But how has the West conceived of non-western societies been influenced by these other traditions? The Geography of Perversion and Desire is the first historical study to demonstrate convincingly that the representation cultural otherness, as found in European thought from the Enlightenment through modern times, is closely interrelated with modern constructions of homosexual identity. Travel reports and early ethnographic accounts of cross-gender roles in the Americas, Africa, and Asia corroborated the 18th century construction of the sodomite identity. Similarly, the late 19th-century construction of the third sex provoked much anthropological speculation on to genetic versus societal nature of male-to-male sexual relations, a precursor of current essentialist versus constructionist debates. An invaluable contribution to the ongoing debates on cultural and sexual otherness, this volume unravels how the categories of the modern sodomite and later homosexual were inextricably intertwined with essentialist definitions of racial identity. In encyclopedic detail, Bleys traces how cross-cultural records were collected, created, structured, manipulated, excerpted, reformulated, and omitted in interaction with changing beliefs about male-to-male sexuality. Focusing in such subjects as puritanism, sodomy, and ethnicity in colonial North America; cross-gender behavior and hermaphrodditism; the semiotics of genitalia; andthe parameters of sexual science, The Geography of Perversion and Desire is a breathtakingly thorough, cross cultural history of sexual categories.
Drawing on travel reports and early ethnographic accounts, The Geography of Perversion and Desire presents the first historical study to demonstrate convincingly that the representation of cultural otherness, as found in European thought from the Enlightenment to modern times, is closely interrelated with modern constructions of homosexual identity.

Dorothy Wordsworth (1771-1885) published nothing in her lifetime, save short extracts from her journals and letters which her brother, William, included in his Guide to the Lakes. She spent most of her life caring for her brother and his family, working, traveling and studying with him and his friends who include de Quincey and Coleridge. This selection for the first time presents her writings as a discrete text, giving her a separate authorial voice from that of her brother and bringing her to a new generation of students, scholars and enthusiasts.
Wordsworth's journals, analyzed and set into context by Paul Hamilton's insightful introduction, chronicle the hardships and indispositions, the comings and goings, the windfalls and losses of those around her, both at home and during her many travels, revealing a relish for the experiences of others distinctly free from Romantic egoism. Most significantly, in her Grasmere Journal, she tells her own story, imposing her own narrative structure on events and discovering the plot of her own life.

"Islands and Empires "was first published in 1976. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
This is the first one-volume account of the massive impact of Western civilization on the Pacific Islands and the Far East, principally China and Japan. The effects on the two areas were very different since, in the case of the islands, contact was with peoples who were still in the Stone Age, while in the Far East Westerners came up against sophisticated civilizations more ancient and mature than their own. Because of these differences, the book is divided into two sections, the first dealing with the Pacific Islands and the second with the East Asian mainland. Reverse influences--those of the Eastern cultures on the West--are also discussed.
