Scholars at War is the first scholarly publication to examine the effect World War II had on the careers of Australasian social scientists. It links a group of scholars through geography, transnational, national and personal scholarly networks, and shared intellectual traditions, explores their use, and contextualizes their experiences and contributions within wider examinations of the role of intellectuals in war. Scholars at War is structured around historical portraits of individual Australasian social scientists. They are not a tight group; rather a cohort of scholars serendipitously invol

Chaque jour des milliers de personnes sont tuées ou blessées sur nos routes. Des hommes des femmes et des enfants qui se rendent au travail ou à l'école à pied à bicyclette ou sur des animaux qui jouent dans les rues ou entreprennent de longs voyages ne reviendront jamais chez eux et laisseront derrière eux des familles et des communautés éplorées. Chaque année des millions de personnes passent de longues semaines à l'hôpital après de graves accidents et beaucoup d'entre elles ne pourront plus jamais vivre travailler ou jouer comme elles le faisaient auparavant.

From the moment it was first proposed, the role of the nursepractitioner has been steeped in controversy. In the fields of bothnursing and medicine, the idea that a nurse practitioner can, to somedegree, serve as a replacement for the physician has sparked heateddebates. Perhaps for that reason, despite the progress of the nursepractitioner movement, NPs have been reluctant to speak aboutthemselves and their work, and their own vision of their role has thusremained largely invisible. Current research is dominated byinstrumental and economic modes of discourse and tends to focus on theclinical

The unipolar moment, to the extent it ever existed, has now truly passed. The United States is part of a globalized world, in which the flows of goods, finance, people, and much more connect us to other countries as never before. But for all the myriad benefits globalization brings, it also means that the challenges of the coming decades-be they generated by resource competition, climate change, cybercrime, terrorism, or clas貞ic competition and rivalry-cannot be solved or even mitigated by one country alone. Countries will need to cooperate on policies that extend across borders to address i
