Classical Humanism and Republicanism in English Political Thought, 1570-1640: CLASSICAL HUMANISM & REPUBLICA

Product : Classical Humanism and Republicanism in English Political Thought, 1570-1640: CLASSICAL HUMANISM & REPUBLICA
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Early modern England was a monarchy and the Englishman was a subject rather than a citizen. Scholars have assumed that those traditions of political thought that emphasize the citizen''s active role exercised no influence in England between the mid-sixteenth century and the Civil War in the 1640s. Markku Peltonen challenges that view and argues that early modern Englishmen could characterize their life as one of participation rather than subjection and portrays their community as having several distinctively republican features.

Product : Charlotte Brontë and Victorian Psychology: CHARLOTTE BRONTE & VICTORIAN P
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This ground-breaking study successfully challenges the traditional tendency to regard Charlotte Brontë as having existed in a historical vacuum. Using texts ranging from local newspapers to medical tomes belonging to the Brontës, Sally Shuttleworth explores Victorian constructions of psychology, sexuality and insanity, and traces the ways in which Charlotte Brontë''s texts operate in relation to this complex framework. Shuttleworth offers a reading of Brontë''s fiction informed by a new understanding of the psychological debates of her time.

Beyond Anorexia: Narrative, Spirituality and Recovery

Product : Beyond Anorexia: Narrative, Spirituality and Recovery
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Beyond Anorexia is a sociological exploration of how people recover from what medicine labels as eating disorders, and the first book to focus exclusively on recovery. Beginning with her own personal story, and drawing on conversations with over thirty other former sufferers, Catherine Garrett demonstrates the fundamental importance of narrative to social theory and to healing. Her central claim is that recovery is a spiritual experience (not necessarily a religious one), reconnecting the self with body, nature and society. As such it is the key to fully understanding anorexia.

Actresses On The Victorian Stage: Feminine Performance and the Galatea Myth

Product : Actresses On The Victorian Stage: Feminine Performance and the Galatea Myth
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Gail Marshall looks at actresses on the English stage of the later nineteenth century, and argues that much of their work was determined by the popularity at the time of images of Classical sculpture. They were often encouraged to look as much as possible like statues, and thus to appear to their audiences as sexually desirable objects rather than creative artists. The book draws for its evidence on theatrical fictions, visual representations, and popular culture''s assimilation of the sculptural image, as well as on theatrical productions.

Henry Iv And The Towns: The Pursuit of Legitimacy in French Urban Society, 1589-1610

Product : Henry Iv And The Towns: The Pursuit of Legitimacy in French Urban Society, 1589-1610
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book is the first serious study of Henry IV''s relationship with the towns of France. Rejected by a majority of his subjects because of his Protestant faith, Henry spent the early years of his reign conquering his kingdom through the use of force, persuasion, bribery, and conciliation. By reopening the lines of communication between the crown and the towns, he strengthened the French monarchy. Thus while this book is not a biography of the King, it offers an in-depth analysis of a crucial aspect of his craft of kingship.

The Fungal Colony

Product : The Fungal Colony
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Fungi are among the simplest of eukaryotes. Their study has provided useful paradigms for processes that are fundamental to the way in which higher cells grow, divide, establish form and shape, and communicate with one another. The majority of work has been carried out on the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, but in nature unicellular fungi are greatly outnumbered by filamentous forms for which our knowledge is much less well developed. This volume focuses on the analysis of the filamentous life style, particularly on the hyphae that constitute the fungal mycelial colony. This book provides the most recent insights into the molecular genetics and physiological mechanisms underlying the elaboration of the branching mycelium and the interactions among individual fungal mycelia. This volume offers much to interest mycologists as well as those working in the fields of cell biology, developmental biology, physiology, and biochemistry.

Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1800

Product : Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1800
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book explores Africa''s involvement in the Atlantic world from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries. It focuses especially on the causes and consequences of the slave trade, in Africa, in Europe, and in the New World. Prior to 1680, Africa''s economic and military strength enabled African elites to determine how trade with Europe developed. Thornton examines the dynamics that made slaves so necessary to European colonizers. He explains why African slaves were placed in significant roles. Estate structure and demography affected the capacity of slaves to form a self-sustaining society and behave as cultural actors. This second edition contains a new chapter on eighteenth century developments.

The Early Elizabethan Polity: William Cecil and the British Succession Crisis, 1558-1569

Product : The Early Elizabethan Polity: William Cecil and the British Succession Crisis, 1558-1569
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Traditionally historians have argued that the court of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) was factional, divided among competing subjects who were manipulated by their Queen. This book provides a different account: of councilors who were united by two connected dangers, namely Catholic opposition to Protestant England and Elizabeth''s refusal to marry or to settle England''s succession. Working from the papers of the Queen''s secretary, William Cecil, the author has set this crisis in the context of events in Scotland, Ireland and mainland Europe, and has explored fully the long-term political impact of this succession crisis in the 1560s.

Implicature: Intention, Convention, And Principle In The Failure Of Gricean Theory

Product : Implicature: Intention, Convention, And Principle In The Failure Of Gricean Theory
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : H. P. Grice''s theory of implicature provides the leading paradigm for research in pragmatics. Wayne Davis argues controversially that Gricean theory does not work. In developing his argument the author explains that the psycho-social principles actually define the social function of implicature conventions, which contribute to the satisfaction of those principles. By offering a searching and systematic critique of one of the established doctrines in the philosophy of language, this challenging book will be of particular importance to philosophers of language and linguists, especially those working in pragmatics and socio-linguistics.

Description : British Plant Communities is the first systematic and comprehensive account of the vegetation types of Britain. It covers all natural, semi-natural and major artificial habitats in Great Britain (but not Northern Ireland), representing the fruits of fifteen years of research by leading plant ecologists. The book breaks new ground in wedding the rigorous interest in the classification of plant communities that has characterized Continental phytosociology with the deep concern traditional in Great Britain to understand how vegetation works. The published volumes have been greeted with universal acclaim, and the series has become firmly established as a framework for a wide variety of teaching, research and management activities in ecology, conservation and land-use planning.

Gender and Emotion: Social Psychological Perspectives

Product : Gender and Emotion: Social Psychological Perspectives
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : For ages, women have been considered as the emotional sex. The aim of this book is to investigate this stereotype. A wide range of emotions, such as anger, pride, shame, sadness, and joy, and emotional expressions, such as smiling and laughing are covered in the various chapters. The purpose of each chapter is to show whether sex differences have been found in psychological research in relation to one of these aspects of emotion, in which situations these differences were especially strong, and how (the absence of) these differences can be explained. This book is the first in its field to systematically present an overview of research and theory on gender differences in emotion.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Economy, Polity and Society and its companion volume History, Religion and Culture aim to bring together new essays by many of the leading intellectual historians of the period. The essays in Economy, Polity and Society begin by addressing aspects of the eighteenth-century attempt, particularly in the work of Adam Smith, to come to grips with the nature of commercial society and its distinctive notions of the self, of political liberty, and of economic progress. They then explore the adaptations of and responses to the Enlightenment legacy in the work of such early nineteenth-century figures as Jeremy Bentham, Tom Paine, Maria Edgeworth and Richard Whately. Finally, in discussions that range up to the middle of the twentieth century, they explore particularly telling examples of the conflict between economic thinking and moral values.

First, it is the only study that attempts to understand the logical dimension of Heidegger''s thought in its historical context. Second, no other book-length treatment explores the breadth and depth of Heidegger''s confrontation with Husserl, his erstwhile mentor. Third, the book demonstrates that Heidegger''s deconstruction of Western thinking occurs on three interconnected fronts: truth, being, and time.

The Reconstruction of the Church of Ireland: Bishop Bramhall And The Laudian Reforms, 1633-1641

Product : The Reconstruction of the Church of Ireland: Bishop Bramhall And The Laudian Reforms, 1633-1641
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Thomas Wentworth landed in Ireland in 1633 - almost 100 years after Henry VIII had begun his break with Rome. The majority of the people were still Catholic. William Laud had just been elevated to Canterbury. A Yorkshire cleric, John Bramhall, followed the new viceroy and became, in less than one year, Bishop of Derry. This 2007 study, which is centred on Bramhall, examines how these three men embarked on a policy for the established Church which represented not only a break with a century of reforming tradition but which also sought to make the tiny Irish Church a model for the other Stuart kingdoms. Dr McCafferty shows how accompanying canonical changes were explicitly implemented for notice and eventual adoption in England and Scotland. However within eight years the experiment was blown apart and reconstruction denounced as subversive. Wentworth, Laud and Bramhall faced consequent disgrace, trial, death or exile.

The Sanctions Paradox: Economic Statecraft and International Relations

Product : The Sanctions Paradox: Economic Statecraft and International Relations
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The conventional wisdom is that economic sanctions do not work in international affairs. If so, why do countries wield them so often? Daniel Drezner argues that, paradoxically, countries will be most eager to use sanctions under conditions where they will produce the feeblest results. States anticipate frequent conflicts with adversaries, and are therefore more willing to use sanctions. However, precisely because they anticipate more conflicts, sanctioned states will not concede, despite the cost. Economic sanctions are thus far less likely to be effective between adversaries than between allies.

Product : Teaching and Learning in Japan
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In this important work, major scholars on Japan draw on ethnographic and experimental studies of learning throughout the lifespan to explore the Japanese style of learning. The reader will get an inside view of Japanese teaching methods, where the emphasis is on the process of learning, rather than the end product. In Japan, applications across contexts--from religion to music, to mathematics, to guidance are very differently handled than in the West. Contributors analyze various models of learning within and without the Japanese school system. The examples considered here allow the reader to understand better the rich coherence and variety of educational experiences in the broader social context. A carefully articulated introduction and conclusion by the editors provide salient comparisons of East and West and cautions that we do not simplify our model of either one. Teaching and Learning in Japan will be of interest to educators, Japan scholars, and to educational psychologists.

Description : Pulitzer Prize-winning author Eudora Welty''s writing and photography were the subject of more than one thousand reviews, of which over two hundred are collected here. From the first, reviewers loved Welty''s language and disparaged her lack of plot. Their eager anticipation for the next book is rarely diminished by the shock of reading entirely different styles of writing. Her work was admired even as it challenged its readers.

Between Politics and Science: Assuring The Integrity And Productivity Of Reseach

Product : Between Politics and Science: Assuring The Integrity And Productivity Of Reseach
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Political Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Combining political-economic, sociological, and historical approaches, Professor Guston provides a coherent new framework for analyzing the changing relationship between politics and science in the United States. After World War II, the social contract for science assumed that the integrity and productivity of research were automatic; a belief that endured for four decades. But in the 1980s, cases of misconduct in science and flagging economic performance broke the trust between politics and science. New boundary organizations were created to mend the relationship between scientists and politicians.

Elliptic Curves: Function Theory, Geometry, Arithmetic

Product : Elliptic Curves: Function Theory, Geometry, Arithmetic
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The subject of elliptic curves is one of the jewels of nineteenth-century mathematics, whose masters were Abel, Gauss, Jacobi, and Legendre. This book presents an introductory account of the subject in the style of the original discoverers, with references to and comments about more recent and modern developments. It combines three of the fundamental themes of mathematics: complex function theory, geometry, and arithmetic. After an informal preparatory chapter, the book follows a historical path, beginning with the work of Abel and Gauss on elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. This is followed by chapters on theta functions, modular groups and modular functions, the quintic, the imaginary quadratic field, and on elliptic curves. The many exercises with hints scattered throughout the text give the reader a glimpse of further developments. Requiring only a first acquaintance with complex function theory, this book is an ideal introduction to the subject for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics.

A Phenomenology Of Working-class Experience

Product : A Phenomenology Of Working-class Experience
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Charlesworth examines themes of poverty and class by focusing on a particular town--Rotherham--in South Yorkshire, England, and using the personal testimony of disadvantaged people who live there, acquired through recorded interviews and conversations. He applies to their life stories the interpretative tools of philosophy and social theory, drawing in particular on the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Merleau-Ponty. Charlesworth argues the culture described in this book is not unique to Rotherham and the problems identified in this book will be familiar to economically powerless and politically dispossessed people everywhere.

Faking Literature

Product : Faking Literature
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Literary forgeries are usually regarded as spurious versions of genuine literature. Faking Literature argues that the production of a literary forgery is an act that reveals the spurious nature of literature itself. Literature has long been under attack because of its alliance with rhetoric (the art of persuasion) rather than with logic and ethics. One way of deflecting such attacks is to demonize literary forgery: literature acquires the illusion of authenticity by being dissociated from what are represented as ersatz approximations of the real thing.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Testing the sense of smell is often omitted or trivialized during neurological examination. This comprehensive review will address this shortcoming by emphasizing the significance of this important sensory modality. The Neurology of Olfaction describes the anatomy and physiology of human olfaction and how it may be measured. The book covers neurologic disorders in depth and a comprehensive chapter is devoted to neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Alzheimer''s disease and Parkinson''s disease, where loss of smell is frequent and may be an early preclinical feature that could predict the onset of disease in asymptomatic subjects. Finally, the authors describe methods of treatment for anosmia, evaluate its medicolegal importance, and give guidance for those unfortunate enough to have lost their sense of smell. Written by two experts in the field, this book provides information useful to physicians for assessing and managing chemosensory disorders and summarizes the current scientific knowledge of human olfaction.

Description : There is much confusion over the ''Constitution'', and this book provides an in-depth legal analysis of the institutional aspects of the Constitutional Treaty which, if ratified by the 25 EU Member States, would govern the European Union. Piris argues that, despite its ratification being rejected by the French and the Netherlands referenda in 2005, the Treaty should not be discarded, as it will inevitably be the point of departure for the future of European integration. He places this analysis in an historical and political context and explains the origin, meanings and legal and political effects of all proposed changes to the present treaties.

William James on Ethics and Faith

Product : William James on Ethics and Faith
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book offers a new interpretation of William James''s ethical and religious thought. Michael Slater shows that James''s conception of morality, or what it means to lead a moral and flourishing life, is intimately tied to his conception of religious faith, and argues that James''s views on these matters are worthy of our consideration. He offers a reassessment of James''s ''will to believe'' or ''right to believe'' doctrine, his moral theory, and his neglected moral arguments for religious faith. And he argues that James''s pragmatic account of religion is based on an ethical view of the function of religion and a realist view of the objects of religious belief and experience, and is compatible with his larger conception of pragmatism. The book will appeal to readers interested in the history of modern philosophy, especially pragmatism, as well as those interested in moral philosophy, religion, and the history of ideas.

Description : Containing detailed readings of plays by Shakespeare, Marlowe and Middleton, as well as poetry and prose, this 2009 book provides a major historical and critical reassessment of the relationship between early modern Protestantism and drama. Examining the complex and painful shift from late medieval religious culture to a society dominated by the ideas of the Reformers, Adrian Streete presents a fresh understanding of Reformed theology and the representation of early modern subjectivity. Through close analysis of major thinkers such as Augustine, William of Ockham, Erasmus, Luther and Calvin, the book argues for the profoundly Christological focus of Reformed theology and explores how this manifests itself in early modern drama. Moving beyond questions of authorial ''belief'', Streete assesses Elizabethan and Jacobean drama''s engagement with the challenges of the Reformation.

Description : This eagerly awaited textbook covers everything the graduate student in probability wants to know about Brownian motion, as well as the latest research in the area. Starting with the construction of Brownian motion, the book then proceeds to sample path properties like continuity and nowhere differentiability. Notions of fractal dimension are introduced early and are used throughout the book to describe fine properties of Brownian paths. The relation of Brownian motion and random walk is explored from several viewpoints, including a development of the theory of Brownian local times from random walk embeddings. Stochastic integration is introduced as a tool and an accessible treatment of the potential theory of Brownian motion clears the path for an extensive treatment of intersections of Brownian paths. An investigation of exceptional points on the Brownian path and an appendix on SLE processes, by Oded Schramm and Wendelin Werner, lead directly to recent research themes.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Why are we sometimes unable to remember events, places and objects? This concise overview explores the concept of ''forgetting'', and how modern society affects our ability to remember things. It takes ideas from Francis Yates classic work, ''The Art of Memory'', which viewed memory as being dependent on stability, and argues that today''s world is full of change, making ''forgetting'' characteristic of contemporary society. We live our lives at great speed; cities have become so enormous that they are unmemorable; consumerism has become disconnected from the labour process; urban architecture has a short life-span; and social relationships are less clearly defined - all of which has eroded the foundations on which we build and share our memories. Providing a profound insight into the effects of modern society, this book is a must-read for anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists and philosophers, as well as anyone interested in social theory and the contemporary western world.

Grammatical Inference: Learning Automata and Grammars

Product : Grammatical Inference: Learning Automata and Grammars
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The problem of inducing, learning or inferring grammars has been studied for decades, but only in recent years has grammatical inference emerged as an independent field with connections to many scientific disciplines, including bio-informatics, computational linguistics and pattern recognition. This book meets the need for a comprehensive and unified summary of the basic techniques and results, suitable for researchers working in these various areas. In Part I, the objects of use for grammatical inference are studied in detail: strings and their topology, automata and grammars, whether probabilistic or not. Part II carefully explores the main questions in the field: What does learning mean? How can we associate complexity theory with learning? In Part III the author describes a number of techniques and algorithms that allow us to learn from text, from an informant, or through interaction with the environment. These concern automata, grammars, rewriting systems, pattern languages or transducers.

Military Threats: The Costs of Coercion and the Price of Peace

Product : Military Threats: The Costs of Coercion and the Price of Peace
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Is military power central in determining which states get their voice heard? Must states run a high risk of war to communicate credible intent? Slantchev shows that states can often obtain concessions without incurring higher risks when they use military threats. Unlike diplomatic forms of communication, physical military moves improve a state''s expected performance in war. If the opponent believes the threat, it will be more likely to back down. Military moves are also inherently costly, so only resolved states are willing to pay these costs. Slantchev argues that powerful states can secure better peaceful outcomes and lower the risk of war, but the likelihood of war depends on the extent to which a state is prepared to use military threats to deter challenges to peace and compel concessions without fighting. The price of peace may therefore be large: states invest in military forces that are both costly and unused.

Institutions and European Trade: Merchant Guilds, 1000-1800

Product : Institutions and European Trade: Merchant Guilds, 1000-1800
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : What was the role of merchant guilds in the medieval and early modern economy? Does their wide prevalence and long survival mean they were efficient institutions that benefited the whole economy? Or did merchant guilds simply offer an effective way for the rich and powerful to increase their wealth, at the expense of outsiders, customers and society as a whole? These privileged associations of businessmen were key institutions in the European economy from 1000 to 1800. Historians debate merchant guilds' role in the Commercial Revolution, economists use them to support theories about institutions and development, and policymakers view them as prime examples of social capital, with important lessons for modern economies. Sheilagh Ogilvie's magisterial new history of commercial institutions shows how scrutinizing merchant guilds can help us understand which types of institution made trade grow, why institutions exist, and how corporate privileges affect economic efficiency and human well-being.

Locke on Toleration

Product : Locke on Toleration
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : John Locke''s Letter Concerning Toleration (1689) is one of the most widely-read texts in the political theory of toleration, and a key text for the liberal tradition. However, Locke also defended toleration more extensively in three subsequent Letters, which he wrote in response to criticism by an Anglican cleric, Jonas Proast. This edition, which includes a new translation of the original Letter, by Michael Silverthorne, enables readers to assess John Locke''s theory of toleration by studying both his classic work and essential extracts from the later Letters. An introduction by Richard Vernon sets Locke''s theory in its historical context and examines the key questions for contemporary political theorists which arise from this major work in the history of political thought.

The Making of the Modern Admiralty: British Naval Policy-Making, 1805-1927

Product : The Making of the Modern Admiralty: British Naval Policy-Making, 1805-1927
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This is an important new history of decision-making and policy-making in the British Admiralty from Trafalgar to the aftermath of Jutland. C. I. Hamilton explores the role of technological change, the global balance of power and, in particular, of finance and the First World War in shaping decision-making and organisational development within the Admiralty. He shows that decision-making was found not so much in the hands of the Board but at first largely in the hands of individuals, then groups or committees, and finally certain permanent bureaucracies. The latter bodies, such as the Naval Staff, were crucial to the development of policy-making as was the civil service Secretariat under the Permanent Secretary. By the 1920s the Admiralty had become not just a proper policy-making organisation, but for the first time a thoroughly civil-military one.

Grammatical Categories: Variation in Romance Languages

Product : Grammatical Categories: Variation in Romance Languages
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Grammatical categories (e.g. complementizer, negation, auxiliary, case) are some of the most important building blocks of syntax and morphology. Categorization therefore poses fundamental questions about grammatical structures and about the lexicon from which they are built. Adopting a ''lexicalist'' stance, the authors argue that lexical items are not epiphenomena, but really represent the mapping of sound to meaning (and vice versa) that classical conceptions imply. Their rule-governed combination creates words, phrases and sentences - structured by the ''categories'' that are the object of the present inquiry. They argue that the distinction between functional and non-functional categories, between content words and inflections, is not as deeply rooted in grammar as is often thought. In their argumentation they lay the emphasis on empirical evidence, drawn mainly from dialectal variation in the Romance languages, as well as from Albanian.

Risk and Precaution

Product : Risk and Precaution
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The precautionary principle has been labeled simplistic and the rational approach to decision-making under risk was modeled on well-specified games of chance. How then are we to manage the risks, uncertainties, and 'unknown unknowns' of the real world? In this book, Alan Randall unravels the key controversies surrounding the precautionary principle and develops a new framework that can be taken seriously in policy and management circles. Respecting the complexity of the real world, he defines a justifiable role for the precautionary principle in a risk management framework that integrates precaution with elements of the standard risk management model. This is explained using examples from medicine, pharmacy, synthetic chemicals, nanotechnology, the environment and natural resources conservation. This carefully reasoned but highly accessible book will appeal to readers from a broad range of disciplines, including environmental policy, risk management and cost-benefit analysis.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In the early ninth century, a critical time in Rome''s transformation from ancient capital to powerful bishopric to new state capital, Pope Paschal I undertook a building campaign to communicate his authority and Rome''s importance as an ancient and contemporary seat of power. Combining analysis of contemporary chronicles and documents, architecture, mosaics and new archaeology of medieval Rome, Caroline Goodson examines Paschal''s urban project, revealing new patterns of popular saint veneration in resplendent new churches built in traditional architectural vocabularies. These transformations connect the city and the pope to the past and the present, in the same league as the Byzantine and Carolingian capitals and their emperors. By examining the relationships between the material world and political power in early medieval Rome, this innovative study reveals the importance of Rome''s sacred and urban landscape in constructing papal rule and influence both in the city and beyond.

Using SI Units in Astronomy

Product : Using SI Units in Astronomy
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A multitude of measurement units exist within astronomy, some of which are unique to the subject, causing discrepancies that are particularly apparent when astronomers collaborate with researchers from other disciplines in science and engineering. The International System of Units (SI) is based on seven fundamental units from which other units may be derived, but many astronomers are reluctant to drop their old and familiar systems. This handbook demonstrates the ease with which transformations from old units to SI units may be made. Using worked examples, the author argues that astronomers would benefit greatly if the reporting of astronomical research and the sharing of data were standardized to SI units. Each chapter reviews a different SI base unit, clarifying the connection between these units and those currently favoured by astronomers. This is an essential reference for all researchers in astronomy and astrophysics, and will also appeal to advanced students.

Description : With this seventh volume of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise History of the Supreme Court of the United States, Charles Fairman completes his study of the Supreme Court in the post-Civil War period of 1864-88. In the previous volume, Fairman covered the Chief Justiceship of Salmon P. Chase; the present volume deals with the tenure of Morrison R. Waite, President Grant''s fifth choice for the office. Fairman explores the significance of the Court''s tentative first steps on the unending road of decisions designed to clarify and resolve some of the most persistent issues of American public law, and of a national common market. Fairman identifies the reconciliation between North and South as the most pressing issue during the Reconstruction. Accordingly, the Court was forced to mediate between the new liberties proclaimed by the post-Civil War amendments and enforcement measures and the structure of the federal system bequeathed to it by the Founders of the Republic.

Reality Television and Arab Politics: Contention in Public Life

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : What does it mean to be modern outside the West? Based on a wealth of primary data collected over five years, Reality Television and Arab Politics analyzes how reality television stirred an explosive mix of religion, politics, and sexuality, fueling heated polemics over cultural authenticity, gender relations, and political participation in the Arab world. The controversies, Kraidy argues, are best understood as a social laboratory in which actors experiment with various forms of modernity, continuing a long-standing Arab preoccupation with specifying terms of engagement with Western modernity. Women and youth take center stage in this process. Against the backdrop of dramatic upheaval in the Middle East, this book challenges the notion of a monolithic Arab Street and offers an original perspective on Arab media, shifting attention away from a narrow focus on al-Jazeera, toward a vibrant media sphere that compels broad popular engagement and contentious political performance.

Women And Schizophrenia

Product : Women And Schizophrenia
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Gender impacts significantly on the onset and nature of schizophrenia suffered by women: the female brain develops more rapidly than the male; estrogens produce antipsychotic effects; the female brain ages differently from the male, with a massive preponderance of female very-late-onset schizophrenia that may be related to a relative excess of dopamine D2 receptors. This comprehensive review is as much about women as it is about schizophrenia, encompassing the biological, endocrinological, epidemiological, reproductive, psychological, and social aspects of schizophrenia as experienced by women. An international, multidisciplinary team of clinicians and mental health researchers review past and current literature, and also assess sex-specific issues and evaluate their therapeutic, clinical, and social implications for more appropriate and effective treatments of schizophrenia in women now and in the future. This volume is essential reading for all clinicians, practitioners, and researchers involved with mental health and with women''s health.

History and Memory in Modern Ireland

Product : History and Memory in Modern Ireland
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This volume addresses a subject of vital importance to the study of Irish history--literature and politics. Although collective memory and commemoration has attracted much attention from British, French and American scholars, this is the first major study of the relationship between history and memory in Ireland--closing a remarkable gap in the literature, considering the frequency with which Unionists as well as nationalists have invoked the past, erected monuments and observed anniversaries. This book helps define the main concepts and issues in an emerging field of inquiry.
