Rembrandt's life and art had an almost mythic resonance in nineteenth-century France with artists, critics, and collectors alike using his artistic persona both as a benchmark and as justification for their own goals. This first in-depth study of the traditional critical reception of Rembrandt reveals the preoccupation with his perceived "authenticity," "naturalism," and "naiveteacute;," demonstrating how the artist became an ancestral figure, a talisman with whom others aligned themselves to increase the value of their own work. And in a concluding chapter, the author looks at the play Rembra

The DoD will spend more than $50 billion to develop and procure eight major space systems. The systems have two main components: satellites and ground control systems. Some also have a third component -- user terminals -- that can allow access from remote locations. If the delivery of these three components is not synchronized, there can be delays in providing capabilities, and satellites on orbit can remain underutilized. This report examined: (1) the extent to which satellite, ground control, and user terminat.l deployments are aligned; (2) the reasons deployments have not always been well c

The investigation covers a sample of eleven countries in the region and a cross-section of environmental issues in an urban setting.

Al-Qaeda and allied groups continue to pose a threat to the U.S. in 2010. They have the capacity to kill dozens, or even hundreds, of Americans in a single attack. A key shift in the past couple of years is the increasingly prominent role in planning and operations that U.S. citizens and residents have played in the leadership of al-Qaeda and aligned groups, and the higher numbers of Americans attaching themselves to these groups. Indeed, these jihadists do not fit any particular ethnic, economic, educational, or social profile. This report is based on interviews with senior U.S. counterterror
