Review: Options On The Berlin Problem A Review Article, Stephen R. Bowers Apr 1976

Review: Options On The Berlin Problem A Review Article, Stephen R. Bowers

Faculty Publications and Presentations

Few post-War European disputes have received greater long-term attention that the question of the division of Berlin. During numerous crises, Berlin has been regarded as the greatest existing threat to peace and during the era of detente it has been touted as a barometer of East-West relations. There has always been considerable rhetoric about the need to "resolve" the Berlin problem or, as Khrushchev said, to "normalise" the Berlin situation. The 1971 Quadripartite Agreement on Berlin has been seen by many as an important step in the long approach to a solution. The contributions of this agreement are carefully examined ...

Suburbocentrics Leave Behind Concerns For City, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The column written by Jean Slaughter Doty for this page, "Love Suburbia or Leave It Alone," recently was beautiful. Mrs. Doty, author, housewife and mother in a Connecticut suburb, aptly described the problem of groth, both planned but more commonly unplanned, that has taken place in American suburbs and which has too often destroyed the advantages these places initially offered."

Some Aspects Of Late Prehistoric And Protohistoric Archaeology In Southern Texas, Thomas R. Hester, T. C. Hill Jr. Jan 1975

Some Aspects Of Late Prehistoric And Protohistoric Archaeology In Southern Texas, Thomas R. Hester, T. C. Hill Jr.

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

This paper is concerned with the last several hundred years of the prehistoric period in the southern part of Texas. The earlier human occupation of this region, extending back perhaps 11,000 years, has been summarized elsewhere (Hester 197la). The Paleo-Indian period is represented by scattered surface finds of Clovis and Fol6om projectile points, and by a variety of "Late Paleo-Indian" point styles, such as Plainview, Scottsbluff, Golondrina, Angostura and Merserve.. The following Archaic era is poorly defined, although there are numerous surf ace sites and an abundance of chipped stone artifacts (cf. Weir 1956; Hester, White and White 1969).
