The GEC RF Reference Cell is a parallel plate, capacity-coupled, rf plasma reactor that, in principle, is suitable for studies of basic discharge phenomena, investigation of industrial-type plasmas, and theoretical modeling. This report contains 12 articles that review nearly all of the experiments and theoretical modeling efforts that have been performed over the last 5 years using GEC cells. Together, they serve as a "users' guide" to the operation and performance of the GEC cell.

Why do so many people have problems with love and intimacy? Why do some parents scapegoat their children? What is Parental Alienation Syndrome? What is the MMPI? Why must we grieve loss? Are the years in psychoanalytic psychotherapy worth it? What is a psychotherapy session like? After thirty years of theoretical formulations, the author pulls it all together in this comprehensive model of love relations by integrating evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis, cognitive and social psychology. This theoretical model lets readers see why relationships can be so irrational.

Moving beyond the limits of traditional ethnography, Kate Crehan traces the often complex ways in which local, day-to-day realities are linked to wider economic, political, imaginative structures of power beyond northwestern Zambia.Drawing on extensive fieldwork, Crehan examines economics and gender, politics and kin relations, state and local relations, and witchcraft. Situating her data within a sophisticated yet accessible theoret

The migration of labor from rural to urban areas is an important part of the urbanization process in developing countries. Even though it has been the focus of abundant research over the past five decades, some key policy questions have not found clear answers yet. To what extent is internal migration a desirable phenomenon and under what circumstances? Should governments intervene and, if so, with what types of interventions? What should be their policy objectives? To shed light on these important issues, the authors survey the existing theoretical models and their conflicting policy implicat
