On a life raft in the Mediterranean, a teenager from Ghana wonders whether he will reach Europe alive. A young chef disappears from a cruise ship, leaving a mystery for his friends and family to solve. A water-squatting community battles eviction from a harbor in a Pacific Northwest town, raising the question of who owns the water. Imperiled Ocean is a deeply reported work of narrative journalism that follows people as they head out to sea. What they discover holds inspiring and dire implications for the life of the ocean, and for all of us back on land. As Imperiled Ocean unfolds, battles are fought, fortunes made, and lives are lost. Behind this human drama, the ocean is growing ever more unstable, threatening to upend life on land. We meet a biologist tracking sturgeon who is unable to stop the development and pollution destroying the fish’s habitat, he races to learn about the fish before it disappears. Sturgeon has survived more than 300 million years on earth and could hold important truths about how humanity might make itself amenable to a changing ocean. As a fisher and scientist, his ability to listen to the water becomes a parable for today. By eavesdropping on an imperiled world, he shows a way we can move forward to save the oceans we all share.

The Imperiled Red Cross And The Palestine Eretz Yisrael Conflict 1945 1952

This remarkable book reconstructs the strategy of an institution, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which was under attack at the end of World War II for having failed to help the victims of Nazi concentration camps. Threatened with dissolution by the International Red Cross movement, the ICRC developed its defense through the policies behind its activities during the Palestine-Eretz-Yisrael conflict between 1945 and 1952, in connection with the elaboration of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and new statutes of the International Red Cross. Far from being a pious chronicle of the good works of the ICRC, this uncommonly independent-minded book leads the reader to the very heart of the endangered institution, uncovering not only the political objectives of its members, as seen in the wording of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and in the statutes of the International Red Cross and of its financial decisions, but also the experience of its delegates, thrust into the daily violence of war and who, forged in its institutional culture, tried to apply its criteria to a context where the underlying values and interests were very different from their own.

Revised for increased readability, this full-colour text offers an insightful, ecologically-sensitive presentation of the relationship of scientific principles to ocean phenomena. Now better suited for non-major oceanography courses, this edition offers a broader study with a marked reduction in concentrated topic coverage, with a continued emphasis on how we must take more precautions in activities that can modify the environment and learn how to keep these modifications to a minimum.
