Book Summary:

With important ramifications for studies relating to industrialization and the impact of globalization, A Common Thread examines the relocation of the New England textile industry to the piedmont South between 1880 and 1959. Through the example of the Massachusetts-based Dwight Manufacturing Company, the book provides an informative historic reference point to current debates about the continuous relocation of capital to low-wage, largely unregulated labor markets worldwide. In 1896, to confront the effects of increasing state regulations, labor militancy, and competition from southern mills, the Dwight Company became one of the first New England cotton textile companies to open a subsidiary mill in the South. Dwight closed its Massachusetts operations completely in 1927, but its southern subsidiary lasted three more decades. In 1959, the branch factory Dwight had opened in Alabama became one of the first textile mills in the South to close in the face of post-World War II foreign competition. Beth English explains why and how New England cotton manufacturing companies pursued relocation to the South as a key strategy for economic survival, why and how southern states attracted northern textile capital, and how textile mill owners, labor unions, the state, manufacturers' associations, and reform groups shaped the ongoing movement of cotton-mill money, machinery, and jobs. A Common Thread is a case study that helps provide clues and predictors about the processes of attracting and moving industrial capital to developing economies throughout the world.

Book Summary:

John Sulston was director of the Sanger Centre in Cambridge from 1993 to 2000. There he led the British arm of the international team selected to map the entire human DNA sequence, a feat that was pulled off in record time by an extraordinary collaboration of scientists. Despite innumerable setbacks and challenges from outside competitors the ultimate success of the project can be attributed in large part to John Sulston's own determination, passion and scientific excellence. In this personal account he takes us behind the scenes of one of the largest international scientific operations ever undertaken. He is frank about the competition with Craig Venter and Celera Genomics, which threatened to undermine the international community's attempts to make the sequence freely available to everyone. He shares with us his excitement as the project unfolded. And as a pragmatist he reveals his hopes and concerns as to how the information unlocked by the Human Genome Project will affect people's lives in the future. The Common Thread is at once a compelling history of this most exciting of scientific breakthroughs and also an impassioned call for ethical responsibility in scientific research. As the boundaries between science and big business increasingly blur, and researchers race to patent medical discoveries, the international community needs to find a common protocol for the protection of the wider human interest. The Common Thread tells a story of our shared human heritage, offering hope for future research and a fresh outlook on our scientific understanding of ourselves.

Book Summary:

A Common Thread is a collection of sixteen brave and honest accounts of fertility issues and miscarriage. Each journey is unique; yet each contributor shares truthfully from their heart the highs and lows they have been through; how their journey has affected their faith and how God has brought them through. Although the physical, emotional and mental toll can be unbearable for those who find themselves facing these battles, there is hope. Within this book you will read the stories of those who have experienced successful IVF, failed IVF, multiple miscarriages, miscarriage after having children, adoption, miracle births, and those who have never been able to have children. Although we all experience the journey differently, we all share 'a common thread' of understanding. You are not alone.

Book Summary:

North America exploration has evolved, revealing vast resources and unexplored geography. This book is a collection of facts and stories from some of the pioneers who opened trails leading to the interior of the continent. The path to Montana descended simultaneously from four directions, culminating at the forty-ninth parallel on the international boundary between the United States and Canada. A trio of mountains known as the Sweet Grass Hills lies along this path. These islands on the prairie were witness to several events, leaving untold stories of peoples and places that effectively contributed to the establishment of Montana. People who make history are not only prodigious folks, but often ordinary people like you or me. Their journeys are chronicled in layers of heredity. This is a brief collection of memoirs, short stories, and facts about the pioneers who persevered and left us reminders of their journey. Join the author as she leads you on an exciting journey featuring some of the characters who opened trails leading to the interior of the continent in As It Was.

Book Summary:

At one time, they were a professional, tough, and efficient team-elite covert troopers who accomplished those assignments no one else would dirty their hands with-or would even admit to having any knowledge of. Even though they're retired now, they still have each other's back, especially when one of their own faces trouble. Father Joe O'Reilly, the team's self-appointed chaplain, would give his life in a New York minute to help someone in need. That has placed him in a situation that may cost him his life. He is assigned to a small cluster of islands in the Caribbean Sea called the Isles of Eden and directed to help the islanders any way he can. But Dr. Enrico Hamadryad has other plans. He is the leader of the Gifted, a criminal cult located on the Isles of Eden that rejects all laws and faith and makes their own. Its goal is world domination. What's more, the natives have fallen under Hamadryad's evil spell, and O'Reilly is kidnapped. His former teammates, led by John Hawk, must find a way to rescue O'Reilly before he is killed, and they aim to put an end to Hamadryad and his evil cult along the way.
