The work indicated in Polish literature as the cartographic basis for the negotiations of Polish issues at the Paris Peace Conference (1919–1920) is Eugeniusz Romer’s Geograficzno-statystyczny atlas Polski (Geographical and Statistical Atlas of Poland). Given the complicated fate of the atlas, the position of its author in the Polish delegation, and the multidisciplinarity and importance of the conference, it is worth considering whether this atlas really played such an important role, or whether this is merely a statement, a repeated assignment of this role, to stave off concealment or lack of knowledge about other cartographic materials developed and used for the same purpose. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to determine the level of use of cartographic documents other than the Geographical and Statistical Atlas of Poland in lobbying and official negotiations of Polish issues before and during the Paris Peace Conference. The research task was associated with an extensive archival query, which confirmed the fact that dozens of maps survived, mainly manuscripts, which were prepared before and during the conference. It should be concluded that the maps of E. Romer’s atlas constituted one set of many equally important cartographic documents which were used by the negotiators at the Paris Peace Conference.

one-fourth of the Soviet population of the time and destroy over half of its industry ( Pifer et al. 2010 : p. 5). Even this was not considered enough, because one had to take into account the effect of possible Soviet first-strike capability. Thus, to ensure survivability of sufficient capabilities, each leg of the strategic triad had, independently of others, to have this capacity ( Kaplan 1980 : p. 3). The requirement of killing one-fourth of the Soviet population rests on historical experience, since in World War II, the Soviet Union suffered from casualties of

1 Introduction Military organizations are bureaucratic, hierarchical ( Alvinius 2013 ) and meritocratic ( Castilla and Benard 2010 ) in their design, which includes not only inherit challenges but also opportunities for the organizational members. Military organizations have survived for hundreds of years and therefore it is assumed that their design makes the organization functional, alive and proper ( Andrzejewski 1954 ). It is seldom that one associates military organizations with dysfunctional organizational aspects, which is the focus of this study. However

However, their in-depth research on the events that took place on the night of December 22, 1949, involving interviews with surviving participants, on the complex history leading to it, and its aftermath sheds light on the intricate political climate in India at that time, and reveals the calculated, entirely politically-motivated and exploitative nature of the so-called “appearance” of Rama in Babri Masjid. “Appearance” is the right word to use, because it was claimed then, and it is believed by many to this day, that Rama himself

JNICT had a very different genesis: it was created in the late period of the dictatorship (1967), strongly entangled with the political power, being brought into being directly under the President of the Council,5 António de Oliveira Salazar, by the influence of Francisco Leite Pinto, a man of science and of the regime.6 It was the first Portuguese institution featuring the term “science policy” in its mission and it would not only survive the revolution but strive under the democratic

Raj Vaghoji returns to the battle. In this third attack, while chasing the retreating army of the Sultan, he is mortally wounded and his sons Sangoji and Ramsinhji killed beside him.

The Kondh archive describes these events in the following passages. Kankavati in the Sultan’s control

The local committee of beekeepers was also right; it was pesticides that killed their bees. Whereas the State Entomologist was wrong; chemical analysis was not always a proper tool when detecting bee poisoning from pesticides.62 Regulations were made, 1941 In July 1939 Rolf Lunder summarised the results of the “investigations concerning possible
