The purposes of this 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code of Louisiana are the same as those of the previous yearly editions but also meant to acquaint the reader with the knowledge of new books or materials helpful in better understanding the essence of a codified law. As all prior editions, the 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code is meant to be a `user-friendly¿ tool small by its size and accessible by its bare bone presentation of the Code articles. It is easy to handle, simple to read because one is not distracted by references to cases which tend to be the main focus of attention of lawyers. Thus this presentation is aimed mostly at emphasizing the ranking of legislation as `the¿ imperative and primary source of law in the Louisiana civil law tradition as stated in articles 1 and 2 of the Civil Code. Furthermore, the recent publication of two books will help the reader to go deeper into grasping the purpose of codification and the full meaning of ¿Code articles¿ be they from Louisiana, French, Quebec, Italian¿Civil Codes. In this respect we recommend a Carolina Academic Press publication: Deciphering a Civil Code and the Dictionary of the Civil Code by LexisNexis.

The National Socialist concentration camp of Stutthof, not far from Danzig (West Prussia), has never been the subject of scientific study by western historians. In Poland there exists quite an extensive body of literature on the subject, which must, however, be treated with caution, because it is heavily influenced by Soviet-Communist and Polish-nationalistic ideology. According to this literature, Stutthof became a 'makeshift' extermination camp within the framework of the execution of the so-called 'Final Solution of the Jewish Question' in 1944. Jurgen Graf and Carlo Mattogno have subjected this view of Stutthof to critical examination based on Polish literature and documents located in Russian, Polish, and Dutch archives, paying particular attention to mass transports to and from Stutthof in 1944. This research led the authors to very definite conclusions as to the function of the camp, differing dramatically from those expressed in the standard literature: Not only do Graf and Mattogno prove that the Stutthof camp did not serve as a 'makeshift' extermination camp-the room claimed to have been used as a homicidal gas chamber was never anything but a delousing chamber. This book also sheds light on the question of what happened to some of the prisoners who were sent to Auschwitz but were never registered in that camp: after being much shuffled about and neglected, they ended up in Stutthof. The present volume is a milestone of research which no historian with any claim to seriousness can afford to ignore. Fourth, slightly corrected edition of 2016."
Content analysis is one of the most important but complex research methodologies in the social sciences.

Affordable and effective domestic wastewater treatment is a critical issue in public health and disease prevention around the world, particularly so in developing countries which often lack the financial and technical resources necessary for proper treatment facilities. This practical guide provides state-of-the-art coverage of methods for domestic wastewater treatment and provides a foundation to the practical design of wastewater treatment and re-use systems. The emphasis is on low-cost, low-energy, low-maintenance, high-performance 'natural' systems that contribute to environmental sustainability by producing effluents that can be safely and profitably used in agriculture for crop irrigation and/or in aquaculture, for fish and aquatic vegetable pond fertilization. Modern design methodologies, with worked design examples, are described for waste stabilization ponds, wastewater storage and treatment reservoirs; constructed wetlands, upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactors, biofilters, aerated lagoons and oxidation ditches. This book is essential reading for engineers, academics and upper-level and graduate students in engineering, wastewater management and public health, and others interested in sustainable and cost-effective technologies for reducing wastewater-related diseases and environmental damage.
