The Return of the Sun Book Description :

"The book first describes the significant cultural changes experienced by Inuit since the Canadian government took over their lives in the 1950s.

Generations were segregated where family life meant being very close across generations, parenting changed, children became much more independent.

Physics of the Sun Book Description :

This volume, together with its two companion volumes, originated in a study commis sioned by the United States National Academy of Sciences on behalf of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A committee composed of Tom Holzer, Dimitri Mihalas, Roger Ulrich and myself was asked to prepare a comprehensive review of current knowledge concerning the physics of the Sun. We were fortunate in being able to persuade many distinguished scientists to gather their forces for the preparation of 21 separate chapters covering not only solar physics but also relevant areas of astrophysics and solar-terrestrial relations. It proved necessary to divide the chapters into three separate volumes that cover three different aspects of solar physics. Volumes I...
