Cross sections for inclusive electron scattering from aluminum have been measured at both forward and backward angles in the kinematic region near x =1 and 1.75 & Q & 7 (GeV/c) . The forward-angle data are in good agreement with a recent calculation. Both the data and the calculation show scaling behavior for F2(g, Q~)=vs(g, Q2) at high Q for fixed values of the Nachtmann variable g. The ratio R =oL /trr has been extracted for 1.75 &Q &5 (GeV/c) and is found to decrease with Q2 to a value consistent with zero at the highest Q~.
