Developing A Virtual Library For An Overseas Campus, Judith M. Nixon Mar 2001

Developing A Virtual Library For An Overseas Campus, Judith M. Nixon

Libraries Research Publications

This article describes the development of a ‘virtual library’ for all off campus users. One of the major imputes for the virutal library was so we could delivery our electronic resources to our new overseas campus. Three major goals were accomplished by the day the overseas campus opened. Many of our electronic resources were moved to WEB-based delivery, a proxy server was set up to authenticate off-campus users and allow use of the WEB delivered databases, and a Windows Terminal Server was set up to deliver CD-ROM based databases.

When Heredity Met The Bacterium: Quarantines In New York And Danzig, 1898-1921, Gerd Korman Jan 2001

When Heredity Met The Bacterium: Quarantines In New York And Danzig, 1898-1921, Gerd Korman

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Recent careful examinations of American quarantines placed on incoming migrants have found that health officials were potent carries of bigotries rooted in the larger society; but usually historians have not paid sufficient attention to the complex challenges facing quarantine units in action. By examining the work of quarantine health officials dealing with migrating Jews from East Central Europe this analytical narrative seeks to show in detail important structural circumstances within which acts of bigotry manifested themselves between the 1890s and 1920s.

The narrative also has a larger agenda. Connections between public health quarantines and bio-cultural determinisms have long participated ...


Religious Brotherhoods In Chechnya, Yavus Akhmadov, Stephen R. Bowers, Marion T. Doss, Jr. Jan 2001

Religious Brotherhoods In Chechnya, Yavus Akhmadov, Stephen R. Bowers, Marion T. Doss, Jr.

Faculty Publications and Presentations

Sufism is one of the most important religious movements in Chechnya. It is significant because it is a popular rallying point and, to the external world, it is not obvious who is or is not a member of these clandestine brotherhoods. Sufism gives its adherents an organizational basis that is somewhat like that of the early communist party. There are twenty-seven religious movements operating in Chechnya today. Kunta Hadji is one of the most important of these and is associated with the Qadiriya brotherhood, generally regarded as the second most important of the Soviet-era brotherhoods.

Following the first Chechen war ...

Montenegro: Vassal Or Sovereign?, Octavian Sofansky, Stephen R. Bowers, Stephanie E. Cameron, Marion T. Doss, Jr. Jan 2001

Montenegro: Vassal Or Sovereign?, Octavian Sofansky, Stephen R. Bowers, Stephanie E. Cameron, Marion T. Doss, Jr.

Faculty Publications and Presentations

A move toward Montenegrin independence would cause Serbian public opinion to focus inward and would likely be the first step in the process towards true democratic evolution. Russia is not likely to support Montenegrin independence and Russia is unlikely to take decisive action to save the Yugoslav Federation. The removal of Slobodan Milosevic from power will have a modest impact on the prospects for maintaining independence.


The Moldovan Confederation Conundrum, Stephen R. Bowers, Valeria Ciobanu, Marion T. Doss, Jr. Jan 2001

The Moldovan Confederation Conundrum, Stephen R. Bowers, Valeria Ciobanu, Marion T. Doss, Jr.

Faculty Publications and Presentations

The Gagauz leadership has advanced several basic demands. The first category of demands relates to economic concerns and these appear to be the most fundamental. The situation that they insist be addressed in that there is an economic disparity between Gagauzia and the rest of the Moldovan Republic.

If one looks beyond the rhetoric of Comrat, Gagauz political demands are secondary to the economic ones. They demand political parties that would operate in local elections. They want more seats in the Moldovan Parliament and believe that all laws should be published in the Gagauz language as well as in Russian ...

The Stability Of The Dniester Moldovan Republic: A Post-Election Analysis, Oazu Nantoi, Stephen R. Bowers, Valeria Ciobanu, Marion T. Doss, Jr.

Faculty Publications and Presentations

The communists' electoral victory and the elevation of Voronin to the Presidency drew Moldova closer to the Russian Federation and raised new questions about the stability of the Dniester Moldovan Republic.

The existence of the DMR no longer serves Russian interests as it did in the past.

The prospects for confrontation between the DMR and Moldova are greater today as a result of the Communist Party victory.

While President Voronin has privately expressed his disdain for the DMR leadership, he seems willing to accept the existence of the DMR.

By the latter part of the past decade, the DMR existed ...


Islam In The North Caucasus: A People Divided, Yavus Akhmadov, Stephen R. Bowers, Marion T. Doss, Jr. Jan 2001

Islam In The North Caucasus: A People Divided, Yavus Akhmadov, Stephen R. Bowers, Marion T. Doss, Jr.

Faculty Publications and Presentations

Religious diversity has had a dramatic impact on the development of the North Caucasus region. People do not indentify primarily with either a national or international Islamic community. The fundamentalist Vakhabite community has become a major regional force during the past decade in spite of numerous efforts to suppress its influence. Official suppression of the Vakhabites has resulted in the emergence of a clandestine Vakhabite network supported from abroad. Islamic radicals throughout the regions (mostly Saudi and North African Arabs) have joined with the Khattab group in order to receive military training in camps which are operated to support Arab ...
