Abstract

Essa publicação vem suprir a necessidade de materiais didáticos específicos sobre a atenção à saúde de povos indígenas que vivem na zona rural, isolados ou em áreas de difícil acesso. Nessas circunstâncias, a alta prevalência das doenças de pele, com características de baixa mortalidade, mas com impacto na qualidade de vida, tem feito parte da realidade dessas populações e, em geral, é um problema relegado a segundo plano.O objetivo deste livro é colaborar com o dia a dia dos profissionais de saúde que trabalham na atenção básica, especialmente em regiões em que a presença do dermatologista nem sempre é possível.

Abstract

In May 12, 2008, the Wenchuan County earthquake caused devastating loss of human life and property. Applying all the remote sensing technology available, the Chinese Academy of Sciences immediately launched into action, making full use of its state-of-the-art facilities, remote sensing planes, and satellites to amass invaluable optical and radar data. This unprecedented use of comprehensive remote sensing techniques provided accurate, up to the minute information for disaster management and has left us with a visually stunning and beautiful record that is as much a scientific achievement as it is an artistic one. Based on the accumulated data and images collected by the Project Team of Remote Sensing Monitoring and Assessment of the Wenchuan Earthquake, Atlas of Remote Sensing of the Wenchuan Earthquake documents the events as they happened in real time. The book covers the disaster from six aspects: geological, barrier lakes, collapsed buildings, damaged roads, destroyed farmland and forests, and demolished infrastructure. It also demonstrates that the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project, which has been standing for 2000 years, remains fully functioning, and keeps the Chengdu Plain operating optimally even after the earthquake. Translated into English for the first time, the Atlas presents a pictorial summation of this unique project. It chronicles the event with over 280 before and after color images from a range of perspectives. This volume dramatically demonstrates the value of remote sensing for understanding how an earthquake unfolds and the potential of remote sensing in helping coordinate emergency relief. A pictorial record of events as they unfolded, this book provides a systematic documentation of earthquake damage that can be used to prepare for future seismic events.

Abstract

This atlas portrays Thailand’s spatial structures and presents the country’s social and economic development in a territorial context. The Kingdom of Thailand has undergone many changes throughout its long history, and most recently during its vigorous growth from the middle of the 1980s. The maps and text give a comprehensive interpretation of Thailand’s internal dynamics as well as its regional and global integration. This is the first atlas of its kind for Thailand. It includes a wide range of spatial information and maps using various computer-assisted techniques. Seventy plates of maps, accompanied with commentary, cover significant topics such as: Thailand’s relation to the world-system, its place in Eastern Asia, and its population, infrastructure, urban network, production, income, education, intra-regional dynamics. The volume brings together experts in a variety of fields and methods. It will be a valuable tool for teachers and students, planners and entrepreneurs – indeed, for anyone eager to understand recent changes and prepare future diagnoses.

Abstract

Le vaste territoire de la Polynésie Française compte sept langues distinctes – tahitien, austral, rapa, mangarévien, marquisien du nord, marquisien du sud, pa’umotu – dotées à leur tour d’une forte variation interne. Fruit de dix ans de collaboration entre deux linguistes du CNRS, Jean-Michel Charpentier et Alexandre François, l’Atlas Linguistique de la Polynésie Française rend hommage à ce riche paysage linguistique et dialectal en documentant minutieusement vingt parlers différents du territoire, à l’aide de plus de 2250 cartes. Organisées thématiquement – corps, vie, individu et société, culture et techniques, flore et faune – ces cartes lexicales s’accompagnent de notes explicatives et d’index en français, anglais, tahitien. Des chapitres introductifs présentent le contexte social et la dynamique historique des langues de Polynésie Française, toutes plus ou moins fragilisées par la modernité. Publié en accès libre, cet ouvrage multilingue et comparatif s’adresse non seulement aux chercheurs et aux enseignants, mais aussi à tous ceux que passionne le patrimoine linguistique de cette région du Pacifique.The vast territory of French Polynesia is home to seven distinct languages – Tahitian, Austral, Rapa, Mangarevan, North Marquesan, South Marquesan, and Pa’umotu – which in turn show internal variation. The fruit of ten years of joint work by two linguists of French CNRS, Jean-Michel Charpentier and Alexandre François, the Linguistic Atlas of French Polynesia pays tribute to the rich linguistic landscape of the country by documenting thoroughly twenty different communalects, in the form of 2250 maps. Organised by topics (body, life, individual and society, culture and technology, flora and fauna), these lexical maps are supplemented by explanatory notes and indexes in French, English, Tahitian. Text chapters in French and English present the social profile and the historical dynamics of the territory’s languages, which are all endangered to various extents. Published in open access, this multilingual and comparative atlas provides an essential reference to scholars and teachers alike, as well as to a broader audience keen to explore and preserve the linguistic heritage of the Pacific region.

Abstract

Les Ghoujdama, tribu du Haut Atlas, par leur ancrage dans l'histoire et leur capacité d'adaptation au monde moderne constituent un cas exemplaire pour comprendre le Maroc et par-delà le monde rural maghrébin. Par une étude historique solide, l'auteur nous montre les Ghoujdama à l'aube du xxe siècle, sous la double domination du Glaoui et du Protectorat et depuis l'indépendance. Grâce à la connaissance intime de ce milieu dont il est issu, ALI AMAHAN, dans le sillage de Robert Montagne, Jacques Berque, Paul Pascon, Pierre Bourdieu, aborde avec acuité, justesse et authenticité l'analyse des mutations sociales chez les Ghoujdama. Il révèle les mécanismes enfouis dans les structures sociales et mentales, dévoile la dynamique spécifique qui incite au changement mais aussi à la résistance, et montre que la confrontation entre changement et permanence n'est en fait que la juxtaposition de deux systèmes, l'un moderne et puissant, l'autre traditionnel et ancestral. Ces systèmes se complètent et ne s'opposent que rarement ; ils s'appuient mutuellement l'un sur l'autre pour perdurer et évoluer.
