Anchorage, Alaska: Counter Cine and T. Sadowski, Salmon by Peter A Coates Book 6 editions published between and in English and Undetermined and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "In Salmon, Peter Coates examines the fish from the differing perspectives of those who have eaten it, pursued it, pondered its meaning and absorbed it into culture and art. Ranging from Nova Scotia to Norway and from Korea to California, he tells the evolutionary, ecological and cultural stories of the salmon that has been variously revered, depended upon and abused by humans.
The result is an innovative biography of a species that will delight anyone who has ever eaten or tried to catch this charismatic fish.

Militarized landscapes : from Gettysburg to Salisbury Plain by Chris Pearson 4 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "War and the preparation for war generally take place outdoors, in fields, forests, grasslands, deserts, and other environments.
Militarization, then, is a process that requires the active deployment and exploitation of various landscape features, including topography, vegetation, and climate Militarization is a process that occurs through, and leaves its mark on, societies, economies, cultures, and political structures. It also operates through landscape, which it changes or maintains, in both a physical and cultural sense Taken as a whole, the chapters in this volume capture a sense of the constantly changing meanings and materialities of militarized landscapes and the ways in which sites as diverse as Gettysburg, Salisbury Plain and the Korean DMZ have been created, transformed, narrated and represented.
And while these sites may have been accorded predominantly military meanings and objectives, such as the training of soldiers or the pursuit of battle, they cannot be divorced from the wider and overlapping civilian histories and geographies. The role of militarized landscapes as places of environmentalism and heritage, two processes normally conceived of by default as exclusively civilian ventures, indicates the importance of shedding light onto these camouflaged places by digging into their multi-layered histories and geographies"--Introduction.
