Discusses the impact of the 1973 volcanic eruption of Eldfell on the fishing port of Vestmannaeyjar on the island of Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland. Before the eruption was over, approx. one-third of the town had been obliterated, but, more importantly, the potential damage probably was reduced by the spraying of seawater onto the advancing lava flows. There was interest in the course of the Heimaey eruption because of the possibility that the procedures used to control flowing lava & to reduce the damage to a modern town may some day be useful in Hawaii & possibly even in the continental U.

Literary Nonfiction. Gay and Lesbian Studies. Both newcomers and veterans, students and teachers, will benefit from this pithy booklet--a classic of the 1970s--which reviews the legacy of queer defiance and proposes bold strategies for achieving the rights of lesbians/gays/bisexuals and transgender people. The authors pinpoint the origins of homophobia and tell the story of those who fought back: from German organizers in the 1860s, to the homophile pioneers of the 1950s Mattachine Society; from the youth and drag queens of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion, to the Gay Liberation Front and the erup
