Impeccable scholarship and lavish illustration mark this landmark study of American railroad folksong. Norm Cohen provides a sweeping discussion of the human aspects of railroad history, railroad folklore, and the evolution of the American folksong. The heart of the book is a detailed analysis of eighty-five songs, from "John Henry" and "The Wabash Cannonball" to "Hell-Bound Train" and "Casey Jones," with their music, sources, history, and variations, and discographies.

Part One of this work examines the UK steel industry within the European Community trade regulations to establish the UK's position in this area and to see how and if the UK steel industry might evolve. Largely, the work consists of a readable and sensible analysis of the primary information in case-law and Statutes and Conventions and Trade Agreements in the context of world politics and world economics. Part Two presents a realistic and comprehensive snapshot of the international trade situation with particular reference to the UK.

1.0.1 This Code is designed to guarantee safety, reliability, adaptability, economy and advanced technology in metro design. 1.0.2 This Code is applicable to new metro engineering design adopting steel wheel and steel track system. This code can be referred to rebuilt and extended metro engineering and those whose the highest running speed exceeds 100km/h, as well as urban rail transit of other types. 1.0.3 Metro engineering design must comply with general urban planning and urban rail transit network planning approved by competent governmental authorities. 1.0.4 Under the precondition that metro engineering has satisfied requirement of system safety, function and environment, aerial defence requirement can be determined by competent municipal authorities according to concrete conditions. 1.0.5 Design period of metro engineering shall be divided into three stages, such as preliminary stage, short-term stage and long-term stage. The preliminary stage of metro engineering shall be completed for train operation within 3 years, and short-term stage shall be within 10 years and long-term stage shall be within 25 years. 1.0.6 Construction scale and equipment capacity of metro engineering as well as area of land occupied by depot and stabling yard shall be determined according to forecasted long- term passenger flow volume and passing capacity of train. Design of engineering and configuration that can be constructed by stages shall consider by-stage extension and setting. 1.0.7 Design service life of main metro structure shall be 100 years. 1.0.8 Metro line shall adopt right driving and double line mode, and 1435mm standard gauge shall be adopted. 1.0.9 Metro line must adopt fully-close mode, and operation is high-density and depot- grouping operations are recommended to be adopted. The maximum operation capacity of long-term design is recommended to adopt 40 pairs of train per hour, but shall not be less than 30 pairs of train. 1.0.10 Train number of each group in preliminary, short-term and long-term stages shall be determined according to forecasted passenger flow volume, allowable passenger number of train and designed density of train flow separately. Allowable passenger number of train shall be the total number of seat number on train and number of passengers who stand in train. Allowable passenger number at free area in train shall be 6/m2. 1.0.11 Metro depot shall be designed according to line network planning. According to concrete conditions, one depot can be set on each line or one depot can be shared by several lines. Where length of one line exceeds 20km, extra stabling yard can be set at appropriate places according to operation requirements. 1.0.12 Convenient travel change shall be adopted at crosses among metro lines and other rail transit lines. Travel change between metro lines and other general ground traffic lines is recommended to consider uniform planning. 1.0.13 During design of shallowly-embedded and overhead ground wires, measures shall be adopted to reduce noise and shake and to avoid influence on biological environment, and shall comply with emission provisions of applicable national standards. The emission, sewage and solid waste discharged from the metro system shall meet the relevant discharge standards of the nation. 1.0.14 Determination of modes and quantity of ground and overhead metro devices shall consider influences on urban landscape and coordination with ambient environments. 1.0.15 Earthquake protection intensity shall be determined according to earthquake safety evaluation approved by competent authorities of local government. 1.0.16 Ground and overhead metro engineering crossing and adjacent to rivers shall be designed according to 1/100 flood frequency standard. Metro engineering crossing rivers and lakes shall have flood-proof gate or adopt other flood-proof measures at appropriate positions at ends of relevant water area. 1.0.17 Metro design shall gradually realize electromechanical equipment integrated automation centralized on train travel direction and train operation. 1.0.18 Selection of metro electromechanical equipments and trains shall consider standar- dization and series, and China-made equipments are recommended to be adopted. 1.0.19 During metro design, measures shall be adopted to reduce engineering cost and operation cost, but metro safety, reliability and adaptability shall not be affected. 1.0.20 In addition to provisions prescribed herein, metro design shall also comply with relevant provisions of the current national compulsive standards.

A Question of Manhood: A Reader in Black Men's History and Masculinity, is the first anthology of historical studies focused on themes and issues central to the construction of Black masculinities. The editors identified these essays from among several hundred articles published in recent years in leading American history journals and academic periodicals. Volume II picks up where volume I left off, continuing to focus on gender by examining the lives of African American men in the tumultuous period following the Civil War through the end of the nineteenth century. The writings included in volume two cover themes in the lives of black men that touch on leadership, work and the professions, family and community, sports and the military, and the image of black men in the larger society.

Providing a chronological and interpretive spine to the twenty-four volumes of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, this volume broadly surveys history in the American South from the Paleoindian period (approximately 8000 B.C.E.) to the present. In 118 essays, contributors cover the turbulent past of the region that has witnessed frequent racial conflict, a bloody Civil War fought and lost on its soil, massive in- and out-migration, major economic transformations, and a civil rights movement that brought fundamental change to the social order. Charles Reagan Wilson's overview essay examines the evolution of southern history and the way our understanding of southern culture has unfolded over time and in response to a variety of events and social forces--not just as the opposite of the North but also in the larger context of the Atlantic World. Longer thematic essays cover major eras and events, such as early settlement, slave culture, Reconstruction, the New Deal, and the rise of the New South. Brief topical entries cover individuals--including figures from the Civil War, the civil rights movement, and twentieth-century politics--and organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Daughters of the Confederacy, and Citizens' Councils, among others. Together, these essays offer a sweeping reference to the rich history of the region.

A wide-ranging look at the allure and changing significance of work.With seductions, misunderstandings, and misinformation everywhere, this immensely readable book calls for a new contract--with ourselves. Drawing from history, mythology, literature, pop culture, and practical experience, Ciulla probes the many meanings of work or its meaninglessness and asks: Why are so many of us letting work take over our lives and trying to live in what little time is left? What has happened to the old, unspoken contract between worker and employer? Why are young people not being disloyal when they regularly consider job-changing? Employers can't promise as much to workers as before. Is that because they promise so much to stockholders? Why are there mass layoffs and "downsizing" in a time of unequaled corporate prosperity? And why are the most common lies in business about satisfactory employee performance? The traditional contract between employers and employees is over. This thoughtful and provocative study shows how to replace it by the one we make with ourselves.
