Don Swanson, who received the GSA Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Petrology, and Volcanology Division's Distinguished Geologic Career award in 2016, has adopted a detailed, field-oriented approach to studying problems of great volcanologic importance across a range of compositions and spatio-temporal scales. Swanson's work has resulted in a series of fundamental contributions that have advanced understanding of the Columbia River flood basalts, Cascade volcanic arc, and Hawai'i, and his insights have been applied not only around the world, but across the solar system. This volume emphasizes the role of field volcanology as a window into better understanding volcanic processes past and present, and highlights, in particular, those places and processes where Swanson's insights have been particularly impactful.

This volume highlights the career of Dr. Gaku Kimura, professor emeritus of geosciences at the University of Tokyo, by showing the spectrum of research required to understand these dynamic environments and the range of research he has inspired. The first three chapters provide context for the growth of accretionary prisms by examining the thermal structure of the ocean crust, and the sedimentary facies and potential fluid pathways in the Shikoku Basin. Next, two chapters look at the regional-scale structure of the plate boundary and the rheology and hysteresis of the hanging wall of the subduction zone in SW Japan. The following five chapters discuss the progressive deformation and thermal maturation of sediments along accretionary margins from Japan to New Zealand to western North America. The final two chapters look at the deformation processes near the subducting plate interface with the last chapter proposing a link between outcrop-scale observations and seismic slip.

This Research Topic honors the memory of Prof. Antonius “Ton” G. Rolink (April 19, 1953–August 06, 2017), our colleague, mentor and friend in immunology. It is now over a year since Ton left us. This article collection, authored by many of Ton’s friends and colleagues, reflects the huge contribution to cellular and molecular immunology that work emanating directly from Ton’s own hands and laboratory have made to the understanding of lymphocyte development. Ton’s hard work, expertise, generosity, passion for science and infectious humor were legendary and for all of those lucky enough to have been his colleague, he ensured that science was fun. We take this opportunity of thanking all contributors for submitting their manuscripts; we are sure that Ton would have enjoyed reading and making his own insightful comments on them. In the form of original research and review articles, these papers cover many of Ton’s scientific interests in different aspects of lymphocyte development in mouse and man. In the first section, Development of hematopoietic cells and lymphocytes, Klein et al. describe the accumulation of multipotent hematopoietic progenitors in peripheral lymphoid organs of IL-7xFlt3L double transgenic mice and Pang et al. the role of the transcription factor PU.1 on the development of Common Lymphoid Progenitors. In Early B cell development, Winkler and Mårtensson review the role of the Pre-B cell receptor in B cell development and papers by Hobeika et al. and Brennecke et al. describe models of inducible B cell development. For B cell selection, survival and tolerance, Smulski and Eibel review the role of BAFF and Kowalczyk-Quintans et al. analyse the role of membrane-bound BAFF. The impact of BIM on B cell homeostasis is discussed by Liu et al. The role of the MEK-ERK pathway in B cell tolerance is discussed by Greaves et al. and the transcriptional regulation of germinal center development is reviewed by Song and Matthias. For Hematological diseases, Ghia reviews how studies of B cell development help the understanding of Leukemia development, Kim and Schaniel review how iPS technology helps the understanding of hematological diseases and Hellmann et al. describe development of new therapeutic antibody drug conjugates. Finally, in T cell development, homeostasis and graft vs. host disease, Heiler et al. describe the therapeutic effects of IL-2/anti-IL-2 immune complexes in GvHD, Calvo-Asensio et al. describe the DNA damage response of thymocyte progenitors and Mori and Pieters review the role of Coronin 1 in T cell survival.

This new edition of Historical Archaeologies of Capitalism shows where the study of capitalism leads archaeologists, scholars and activists. Essays cover a range of geographic, colonial and racist contexts around the Atlantic basin: Latin America and the Caribbean, North America, the North Atlantic, Europe and Africa. Here historical archaeologists use current capitalist theory to show the results of creating social classes, employing racism and beginning and expanding the global processes of resource exploitation. Scholars in this volume also do not avoid the present condition of people, discussing the lasting effects of capitalism’s methods, resistance to them, their archaeology and their point to us now. Chapters interpret capitalism in the past, the processes that make capitalist expansion possible, and the worldwide sale and reduction of people. Authors discuss how to record and interpret these. This book continues a global historical archaeology, one that is engaged with other disciplines, peoples and suppressed political and economic histories. Authors in this volume describe how new identities are created, reshaped and made to appear natural. Chapters in this second edition also continue to address why historical archaeologists study capitalism and the relevance of this work, expanding on one of the important contributions of historical archaeologies of capitalism: critical archaeology.

Dr. William E. Paul (1936–2015) was the leader of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) immunology community and his career is without parallel in the field of immunology. He was the Chief of the Laboratory of Immunology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), from 1970 at the age of 34 until his death. His groundbreaking contributions to the field of immunology, including the discovery of interleukin (IL)-4, led to more than 600 publications over half a century. He also played an important role in the establishment of the NIH Vaccine Research Center while he was the Director of the NIH Office of AIDS Research. Furthermore, Dr. Paul was a shining icon and an international giant of contemporary immunology. He was a genius and a living encyclopedia of immunology: the author of the textbook "Fundamental Immunology" since its inception to the 7th edition in 2013; and the editor of the “Annual Review of Immunology” from its inaugural issue in 1983 until 2011. In his last book "Immunity", he discussed the three laws of immunology: universality, tolerance and appropriateness. These capture the essence of Dr. Paul as well as the field. Dr. Paul had an enormous impact on the research career of his trainees, many of whom became leaders in the field of immunology, including Drs. Charles Janeway, Ronald Schwartz, Laurie Glimcher and Mark Davis. Dr. Paul was an intelligent, generous, humble but optimistic man. He was also an inspirational and thoughtful leader, colleague and friend; he inspired and encouraged people around him in every possible way. As his trainees and/or colleagues, we miss him greatly and dedicate this special Research Topic to his memory. We thank all the authors who participated in this collection as well as other colleagues and friends of Dr. Paul's who have supported us in a series of events after Dr. Paul's passing. Finally, we would like to thank the Frontiers in Immunology for providing such a wonderful platform for remembering Dr. Paul's remarkable life.

Historians since Herodotus and Thucydides have claimed that the year 483 BCE marked a turning point in the history of Athens. For it was then that Themistocles mobilized the revenues from the city's highly productive silver mines to build an enormous war fleet. This income stream is thought to have become the basis of Athenian imperial power, the driving force behind its democracy and the centre of its system of public finance. But in his groundbreaking new book, Hans van Wees argues otherwise. He shows that Themistocles did not transform Athens, but merely expanded a navy-centred system of public finance that had already existed at least a generation before the general's own time, and had important precursors at least a century earlier. The author reconstructs the scattered evidence for all aspects of public finance, in archaic Greece at large and early Athens in particular, to reveal that a complex machinery of public funding and spending was in place as early as the reforms of Solon in 594 BCE. Public finance was in fact a key factor in the rise of the early Athenian state – long before Themistocles, the empire and democracy. 'With this important book Hans van Wees is the first historian systematically to approach ancient Greek economy and society along the lines of the "new fiscal history". The results are highly rewarding, and go far beyond the area of public finance. In addition to a fresh perspective on key aspects of the archaic Greek world, the author provides numerous insights into the elusive process of state formation in Athens and elsewhere.' - Paul Millett, Senior Lecturer in Classics, University of Cambridge, author of Lending and Borrowing in Ancient Athens

"One of the most important books on political regimes written in a generation."—Steven Levitsky, New York Times–bestselling author of How Democracies Die A new understanding of how and why early democracy took hold, how modern democracy evolved, and what this history teaches us about the future Historical accounts of democracy’s rise tend to focus on ancient Greece and pre-Renaissance Europe. The Decline and Rise of Democracy draws from global evidence to show that the story is much richer—democratic practices were present in many places, at many other times, from the Americas before European conquest, to ancient Mesopotamia, to precolonial Africa. Delving into the prevalence of early democracy throughout the world, David Stasavage makes the case that understanding how and where these democracies flourished—and when and why they declined—can provide crucial information not just about the history of governance, but also about the ways modern democracies work and where they could manifest in the future. Drawing from examples spanning several millennia, Stasavage first considers why states developed either democratic or autocratic styles of governance and argues that early democracy tended to develop in small places with a weak state and, counterintuitively, simple technologies. When central state institutions (such as a tax bureaucracy) were absent—as in medieval Europe—rulers needed consent from their populace to govern. When central institutions were strong—as in China or the Middle East—consent was less necessary and autocracy more likely. He then explores the transition from early to modern democracy, which first took shape in England and then the United States, illustrating that modern democracy arose as an effort to combine popular control with a strong state over a large territory. Democracy has been an experiment that has unfolded over time and across the world—and its transformation is ongoing. Amidst rising democratic anxieties, The Decline and Rise of Democracy widens the historical lens on the growth of political institutions and offers surprising lessons for all who care about governance.

Hail Mount Hermon A TRIBUTE

Published in the year of the school’s 125th anniversary, Hail Mount Hermon! A Tribute is a tribute not only to the school’s founders, principals and teachers but also to all Hermonites (alumni) of all eras and ages who have great love and affection for their alma mater and hopes that Mount Hermon School looks back to its great legacy and lives on to reach greater heights. The book chronicles the school’s tragic beginning soon after its opening in 1895, founding of Queen’s Hill School in the beginning of the 20th century, the establishment of Mount Hermon School at the present campus in Darjeeling in 1929–30, and how the school has grown and progressed thereafter right up to the present era. Throughout its 125 years of existence (1895–2020), Mount Hermon School, founded by Christian missionaries of America in the latter part of the 19th century, had its share of ups and downs. However, the school was able to pull through hard times mainly because of the faith, dedication and determination of its leadership. Major events and renowned personalities of the school are well-documented in this book for posterity to note the spirit in which the school was initially founded and why it survived for so long despite trying circumstances to become one of the leading educational institutions in India. The efforts of the Hermonites and their concern for their alma mater to regain its past glory is recorded in the latter part of this book. Their love and concern for their alma mater is a profound reflection of the spirit that not only gave birth to this great institution but kept it going in the past 125 years through troubled times.
