This important contribution to comparative economic history examines different countries' experiences with different monetary regimes. The contributors lay particular emphasis on how the regimes fared when placed under stress such as wars and or other changes in the economic environment. Covering the experience of ten countries over the period 1700SH1990, the book employs the latest techniques of economic analysis in order to understand why particular monetary regimes and policies succeeded or failed.

Rapid population aging, once associated with only a select group of modern industrialized nations, has now become a topic of increasing global concern. This volume reframes aging on a global scale by illustrating the multiple ways it is embedded within individual, social, and cultural life courses. It presents a broad range of ethnographic work, introducing a variety of conceptual and methodological approaches to studying life-course transitions in conjunction with broader sociocultural transformations. Through detailed accounts, in such diverse settings as nursing homes in Sri Lanka, a factory in Massachusetts, cemeteries in Japan and clinics in Mexico, the authors explore not simply our understandings of growing older, but the interweaving of individual maturity and intergenerational relationships, social and economic institutions, and intimate experiences of gender, identity, and the body.

This book explores the political process by which property rights are defined and enforced in two traditional states in colonial Ghana. The case studies within the book ask how colonial institutions transformed indigenous political and economic life; and how colonization and decolonization affected prospects for future economic development and stability in Africa. The introductory chapter outlines a theory of the transformation of property rights system while the remaining empirical chapters refine this theory through a detailed analysis of the transformation of property rights within an African context.

Advances in Transition-Metal Mediated Heterocyclic Synthesis provides an overview of recent catalytic reactions involving transition metals to produce heterocyclic compounds. The book is organized according to the type of transformation used to achieve the synthesis of the heterocyclic systems (mainly aza- and oxa-heterocycles). As such, it covers recent applications on the synthesis of heterocycles, also describing the details of the novel transformations in a didactic manner to motivate readers in search of new catalytic processes. The editors have included state-of-the-art strategies, including transition-metal reactions involving unsaturated systems (reactions of allenes, new gold(I)-catalyzed reactions, and Prins reaction). Chapters highlight the versatility of organopalladium chemistry dealing with carbonylative transformations, C-H activation reactions, coupling processes, and the control of the ambiphilic character of organopalladium species. Finally, the book discusses new reactions leading to heterocycles based on C-H activation processes catalyzed by other metals (Rh, Ru, Co). Written by an outstanding team of authors who are leading experts in organometallic chemistry and organic synthesis, this book is a valuable resource not only for chemists mainly focused on synthesis, but also for those interested in reaction mechanisms involving transition metals. Helpfully organized by transformation type to stimulate the search for new synthetic processes Completely illustrated and written by global experts Includes thoughtfully selected strategies chosen by the editors to exemplify the state-of-the-art of the subject, including transition-metal reactions involving unsaturated systems, organopalladium chemistry, and metal-catalyzed C-H activation

The development of small and smallest particle is one of today's key features in modern science. The goal is to form materials with improved properties than their "classical" ancestors with just a fractional amount of raw material. However, the characterization of these particles is as important as their way of preparation. Different techniques with their origins in physics, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry have to be combined to reveal the secrets of this important field of science. This book gives a short overview of theoretical basics and synthesis methods to form and characterize gold and zirconia nanoparticles. Phenomenon like plasmon resonance self-assembly of surfactants and the different structures of ZnO2 are explained. Furthermore, analytical tools, like small angle X-ray scattering, X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopy are introduced. In addition, details on the synthesis of gold and zirconia nanoparticles are presented and are examined by the mentioned analytical and calorimetric methods.
