By Robert S. Doran

This booklet comprises papers awarded on the NSF/CBMS local convention on Coordinates in Operator Algebras, held at Texas Christian college in citadel worthy in may perhaps 1990. in the course of the convention, as well as a chain of ten lectures by means of Paul S. Muhly (which should be released in a CBMS nearby convention sequence volume), twenty-eight lectures have been introduced by way of convention individuals on a huge variety of issues of present curiosity in operator algebras and operator conception. This quantity includes a little bit improved models of such a lot of these lectures. individuals have been inspired to carry open difficulties to the convention, and, hence, over 100 difficulties and questions are scattered all through this quantity. Readers will delight in this publication for the evaluation it offers of present issues and strategies of operator algebras and operator conception

The New Nature of Maps: Essays in the History of Cartography

During this number of essays J. B. Harley (1932-1991) attracts on principles in paintings heritage, literature, philosophy, and the research of visible tradition to subvert the normal, "positivist" version of cartography, exchanging it with one who is grounded in an iconological and semiotic concept of the character of maps.

Sample text

In this chapter we analyse the impact of this transformation on the white goods corporations which emerged in the three countries we consider. The comparisons are fascinating since they tell a story of the geography of production, that is, how global corporations work space to consolidate their power and how the changing role of the state is so central in this transformation. The comparison reveals how the local impacts of this global concentration of corporate power in the hands of a few mega corporations differ markedly.

We then provide an overview of the concentration of production at the global level. This forms the backdrop to the radical shift in industry policy in South Africa and Australia as the role of the state is transformed from the guardian of local production to the handmaiden of global interests as free market ideology is embraced without restraint. Corporate restructuring accelerates as a consequence, often with destructive economic and social impacts at the local level. Before moving to this analysis, we need to make a significant point.

Capital flight by foreign companies led to a period of monopolization of the South African economy and so Defy also ended up in the hands of Sankorp, the industrial arm of Sanlam, one of the major Afrikaner financial powerhouses created by ‘Volkskapitalisme’ (see O’Meara 1982). With the rise of the militant industrial unions in urban areas, the state also supported capital’s spatial fix to rural areas under the control of pseudo-independent tribal authorities. The official term for this strategy was ‘industrial decentralization’.
