Revolt! Comparing Historical Revolutions - The New York Times

'Selbin’s beautifully written book takes us where structural accounts fear to tread: into the hearts and souls of those who make revolutions. Brilliantly showing how narratives of resistance and revolution have developed over time and traveled across societies, Selbin provides new dimensions for comparing revolutions by detailing four distinct elite and popular visions of revolutionary change. This book is a powerful addition to our understanding of how revolutions arise, and how revolutionary action is sustained.' - Jack A. Goldstone, Hazel Professor of Public Policy, George Mason University

Comparing Revolutions *––Kandil, Hazem


During the last decade time-depth recorders (TDRs) have been deployed on a majority of pinniped species as a means of studying their diving behavior and foraging ecology. Our aim in the present paper is to: (1) present the theoretical framework for a calibration method for flow-driven swim-speed recorders, and (2) render this method easily useable with large TDR data sets by developing an automatic computerized calibration program for general use. The method involves comparing revolutions per minute (rpm) from the turbine of a swim-speed TDR with changes in depth measured by the instrument's calibrated pressure transducer. The subject collects the data for calibrating the instrument it bears, minimizing errors having to do with variation in animal size, shape (i.e., interindividual and interspecific differences) and instrument position. We used a total of 46 diving records from two species of pinnipeds: Northern elephant seals, Mirounga angustirostris, from Ano Nuevo, California (n = 33), and Hooker sea lions, Phocarctos hookeri, from Enderby Island, New Zealand (n = 13). The method we have described constitutes a fast and conceptually simple way of calibrating swim-speed recorders that reduces errors due to variation in subject size or position of the instrument on the animal. It has been tested in both phocids and otariids, which have very different swimming modes. When used prudently, this method should facilitate the acquisition of new information on foraging behavior, diving energetics, and the development of diving.
