The Thermodynamics of Mixing of Binary Condensed Gas Mixtures
The Yukon in the thirties was unique. It resembled no other corner of Canada - indeed no other corner of the world. Dr. Duncan saw it all, and it is a service to his readers a well as to future historians that he has made this vanished era come alive. Dr. Duncan's book is an important work of social history but unlike some dry-as-dust volumes, it is never less than lively -- from back of book.
Russia’s relations with the west have reached new post-Cold War lows: policy differences over Syria. alleged attempts to affect the outcome of elections in the United States. the poisoning in the United Kingdom of the Russian former double agent, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia. The political conflicts which have followed have led to diplomatic expulsions , and sanctions being imposed by the US, the UK and other western nations. Now a new research paper , ". Managed Confrontation: UK Policy towards Russia After the Salisbury Attack". , published in London on Tuesday, has urged the UK to go further in confronting Russia. Presenting his work at the influential Chatham House Think Tank , the paper’s author, Duncan Allan, argued that it was, “No longer tenable to try to compartmentalize political and economic policy.

Aside from its poor relationship with Russia, Britain is facing increasing uncertainty over its relationship with Europe and the wider world once it leaves the European Union.
