Abstract: Inclusive electron scattering from nuclei at large x and $Q^2$ is the resultof a reaction mechanism that includes both quasi-elastic scattering fromnucleons and deep inelastic scattering from the quark constituents of thenucleons. Data in this regime can be used to study a wide variety of topics,including the extraction of nuclear momentum distributions, the influence offinal state interactions and the approach to $y$-scaling, the strength ofnucleon-nucleon correlations, and the approach to $x$- scaling, to name a few.Selected results from the recent experiment E02-019 at the Thomas JeffersonNational Accelerator Facility will be shown and their relevance discussed.
