D.B. Cooper is wild and conservative, smart and stupid, careful and courageous. He has imagination, determination, and an adjustable conscience. You've got to like him and despise him. He is a pirate, a friend, a schemer, a drug dealer, a nurturer, a murderer, a family man. And now--a writer? It’s an intriguing tale. But D.B. Cooper is not a story character, he is real. He planned and schemed and prepared to hijack a plane, then did it and got away with it. Look it up--it was in all the papers, on television, in conversations around the country, around the world. People will say D.B. Cooper, Where are You is fiction, it is some writer's fanciful account of what may have happened Could be. You know what they say about becoming a writer. Write about what you know. Seems like Walter Grant knows way too much about skyjacking and growing pot. Sort of like D.B. Cooper.

The Archive of Place weaves together a series of narratives about environmental history in a particular location � British Columbia's Chilcotin Plateau. In the mid-1990s, the Chilcotin was at the centre of three territorial conflicts. Opposing groups, in their struggle to control the fate of the region and its resources, invoked different understandings of its past � and different types of evidence � to justify their actions. These controversies serve as case studies, as William Turkel examines how people interpret material traces to reconstruct past events, the conditions under which such interpretation takes place, and the role that this interpretation plays in historical consciousness and social memory. It is a wide-ranging and original study that extends the span of conventional historical research.

The safety, effectiveness, and utility of medical nanorobotic devices will critically depend upon their biocompatibility with human organs, tissues, cells, and biochemical systems. In this second volume of the Nanomedicine technical book series, the definition of nanomedical biocompatibility is broadened to include all of the mechanical, physiological, immunological, cytological, and biochemical responses of the human body to the introduction of artificial medical nanodevices, whether 'particulate (large doses of independent micron-sized individual nanorobots) or 'bulk (nanorobotic organs assembled either as solid objects or built up from trillions of smaller artificial cells or docked nanorobots inside the body) in form. The primary intended audience of this volume is biomedical engineers, biocompatibility engineers, medical systems engineers, research physiologists, clinical laboratory analysts and other technical and professional people interested in the future of medical technology.
