Arthur McIvor and Ronald Johnston explore the experience of coal miners' lung diseases and the attempts at voluntary and legal control of dusty conditions in British mining from the late nineteenth century to the present. In this way, the book addresses the important issues of occupational health and safety within the mining industry; issues that have been severely neglected in studies of health and safety in general. The authors examine the prevalent diseases, notably pneumoconiosis, emphysema and bronchitis, and evaluate the roles of key players such as the doctors, management and employers, the state and the trade unions. Throughout the book, the integration of oral testimony helps to elucidate the attitudes of workers and victims of disease, their 'machismo' work culture and socialisation to very high levels of risk on the job, as well as how and why ideas and health mentalities changed over time. This research, taken together with extensive archive material, provides a unique perspective on the nature of work, industrial relations, the meaning of masculinity in the workplace and the wider social impact of industrial disease, disability and death. The effects of contracting dust disease are shown to result invariably in seriously prescribed lifestyles and encroaching isolation. The book will appeal to those working on the history of medicine, industrial relations, social history and business history as well as labour history.
This book provides insights into the development and usage of coal in chemical engineering. The reactivity of coal in processes such as pyrolysis, gasification, liquefaction, combustion and swelling is related to its structural properties. Using experimental findings and theoretical analysis, the book comprehensively answers three crucial issues that are fundamental to the optimization of coal chemical conversions: What is the structure of coal? How does the underlying structure determine the reactivity of different types of coal? How does the structure of coal alter during coal conversion? This book will be of interest to both individual readers and institutions involved in teaching and research into chemical engineering and energy conversion technologies. It is aimed at advanced- level undergraduate students. The text is suitable for readers with a basic knowledge of chemistry, such as first-year undergraduate general science students. Higher-level students with an in-depth understanding of the chemistry of coal will also benefit from the book. It will provide a useful reference resource for students and university-level teachers, as well as practicing engineers.
It has been one of the toughest times in the United States' economy with rising gas prices, high foreclosures rates, and steep unemployment. The current financial and economic situation affects a majority of the population. But there is hope. In Fifteen Months of Famine, author Natalie Noel shares her personal story and the strategies she used to overcome her misfortune. A single mother, Noel lost her job as an engineer and was out of work for eighteen months. During that time, she developed many coping strategies. Focusing on the Word of God, Noel gathered practical principles, insights, and lessons for dealing with financial crisis. Fifteen Months of Famine discusses the Bible-based principles of spending and of saving consistently and amply during a time of plenty to create a "nest egg." This guide illustrates that there is hope for all situations-both financial and personal-as well as the opportunity to grow personally and spiritually while learning to cope. Fifteen Months of Famine shows the power of following the principles of God's word and trusting God, who is the source of all good.
