Festschrift Der Arbeitsgemeinschaft F R Forschung Des Landes Nordrhein Westfalen Zu Ehren Des Herrn Ministerpr Sidenten Karl Arnold from the Author: Richard Alewyn. FĂŒnf Jahre Arbeitsgemeinschaft fĂŒr wissenschaftliche Forschung in den vielfĂ€ltigen Bezirken der Naturwissenschaften und Technik, seit einigen Jahren notwendig und wirksam ergĂ€nzt durch die Forschung auf geistes wissenschaftlichem Gebiet, ist zu einem Begriff fĂŒr deutsche Forschung und hervorragende Forschungsergebnisse nicht nur in Nordrhein-Westfalen, ihrem Wurzel- und NĂ€hrboden, sondern weit darĂŒber hinaus im Bereich unseres gesamten Vaterlandes geworden, sogar mit Ausstrahlungen in die ganze Welt und Resonanz aus der ganzen Welt. Ein Beweis dafĂŒr, daß die Insti tution, die gar keine Institution im engeren und regelnden Sinne ist und auch nicht sein sollte, sondern ein freiwilliger Zusammenschluß namhafter Wissen schaftler und Forscher aus allen Gebieten der wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen, in Plan und Anlage richtig war und sich sinnvoll und zweckdienlich ent faltet hat. Was heißt in diesem Falle "zweckdienlich"? Dem Zweck des Austausches, der gegenseitigen Befruchtung von Forschern der verschiedensten Species in Rede und Aussprache dienen, um der Gefahr der Einseitigkeit, der jeder Spezialwissenschaftler ausgesetzt ist, zu begegnen und zu entgehen, um teilzuhaben an den Aufgaben, Erkenntnissen und Ergebnissen des Kollegen der benachbarten, aber und besonders auch der entfernteren wissenschaft lichen Bereiche. Die Arbeitsgemeinschaft fĂŒr Forschung hat in ihren regelmĂ€ĂŸigen Sitzun gen und durch ihre zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen einen Reichtum aus " ... Wort und Widerwort und wieder Wort ... " wie es auf der Beschriftung des Vogel Phönix von Ewald Mathare in der Vorhalle des Landtags heißt, gewonnen, eine FĂŒlle von Erkenntnissen geschaffen, wie sie in dieser Reich weite und Tiefe kaum auf andere Weise zu erzielen sind als in einer solchen wissenschaftlichen "SocietĂ€t".

Qualified from the Author: Jamin Soderstrom. There is no more important decision an American voter can make than selecting who will become the next president of the United States, and voters should not be forced to guess whether a candidate is qualified to become president. In Qualified, author Jamin Soderstrom proposes a resume challenge that could revolutionize the election system and help to bring the presidential hiring process into the twenty-first century. Qualified presents a tool, developed by Soderstrom, to help voters compare presidential candidates with each other and with past presidents. This resume-based approach focuses on the candidates’ experiences and abilities and evaluates legislative, executive, military, foreign, and private experience; education and intellect; and writing and public speaking ability. It ensures that future presidents will be leaders qualified by constitutional, historical, and practical standards. A blend of analysis and insight, Qualified seeks to provide information to voters to help ensure the public elects presidents who have the experience, ability, and temperament to rise above the fray and become historically successful. The innovative resume challenge will help shed light on which candidates in 2012 meet the QUALIFIED THRESHOLD for presidential success.

Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating To The Old Testament With Supplement from the Author: James B. Pritchard. This anthology brought together the most important historical, legal, mythological, liturgical, and secular texts of the ancient Near East, with the purpose of providing a rich contextual base for understanding the people, cultures, and literature of the Old Testament. A scholar of religious thought and biblical archaeology, James Pritchard recruited the foremost linguists, historians, and archaeologists to select and translate the texts. The goal, in his words, was "a better understanding of the likenesses and differences which existed between Israel and the surrounding cultures." Before the publication of these volumes, students of the Old Testament found themselves having to search out scattered books and journals in various languages. This anthology brought these invaluable documents together, in one place and in one language, thereby expanding the meaning and significance of the Bible for generations of students and readers. As one reviewer put it, "This great volume is one of the most notable to have appeared in the field of Old Testament scholarship this century." Princeton published a follow-up companion volume, The Ancient Near East in Pictures Relating to the Old Testament (1954), and later a one-volume abridgment of the two, The Ancient Near East: An Anthology of Texts and Pictures (1958). The continued popularity of this work in its various forms demonstrates that anthologies have a very important role to play in education--and in the mission of a university press.
