On Telling Images of China: Essays in Narrative Painting and Visual Culture

Product : On Telling Images of China: Essays in Narrative Painting and Visual Culture
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : These essays address a diverse range of issues in China''s narrative art and visual culture from the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) to the present. These studies attend to the complex ways in which images circulate in pictorial media and across the boundaries between high art and popular culture-images in paintings, prints, stone engravings, and posters, as well as in film and video art. In addition, the authors examine the role of ancient exemplary stories and textual narratives, as well as their reiteration in the visual arts in early-modern and modern social and political contexts.The volume is divided into three sections: representing paradigms, interpreting literary themes and narratives, and the medium and modernity. While the essays in each section deal with concerns in the field of China''s art history, an editors'' introduction serves to position the topic of narrative art and introduce definitions and genre issues that run throughout the book. As a whole, the volume invites reflection on the intrinsic nature of narratives and their pictorial lives and presents new research challenging established views and paradigms.

Description : Everyone has the power to make a work of art come to life Pompon may be a statue of a white bear in a museum, but he has dreams like anyone else does. He yearns to break free and roam the world. Then one day a small boy comes to visit him, and the power of his gaze, his wonder, his love is enough to start a wondrous transformation. Could it be that Pompon just needs a young art lover’s appreciation to journey all over the world? Inspired by the famous sculpture by François Pompon in the Louvre, this is a poetic, touchingly illustrated story that shows the power of imagination to bring art to life.

Revolution In The City Of Heroes: A Memoir Of The Battle That Sparked Indonesia's National Revolution

Product : Revolution In The City Of Heroes: A Memoir Of The Battle That Sparked Indonesia's National Revolution
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The diary of 24-year-old Indonesian medical student Suhario Padmodiwiryo, alias ‘Hario Kecik,” Revolution in the City of Heroes is an evocative first-hand account of the popular uprising in Surabaya. It vividly portrays the chaotic swirl of events and the heady emotion of young people ready to sacrifice their lives for independence. Newly liberated from nearly four brutal years under Japanese control, the people of Indonesia faced great uncertainty in October 1945. As the British Army attempted to take control of the city of Surabaya, maintain order and deal with surrendered Japanese personnel, their actions were interpreted by the young residents of Surabaya as a plan to restore Dutch colonial rule. In response, the youth of the city seized Japanese arms and repelled the force sent to occupy the city. They then held off British reinforcements for two weeks, battling tanks and heavy artillery with little more than light weapons and sheer audacity. Though eventually defeated, Surabaya’s defenders had set the stage for Indonesia’s national revolution.

Building An Intelligence-led Security Program

Product : Building An Intelligence-led Security Program
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : As recently as five years ago, securing a network meant putting in a firewall, intrusion detection system, and installing antivirus software on the desktop. Unfortunately, attackers have grown more nimble and effective, meaning that traditional security programs are no longer effective.Today''s effective cyber security programs take these best practices and overlay them with intelligence. Adding cyber threat intelligence can help security teams uncover events not detected by traditional security platforms and correlate seemingly disparate events across the network. Properly-implemented intelligence also makes the life of the security practitioner easier by helping him more effectively prioritize and respond to security incidents.The problem with current efforts is that many security practitioners don''t know how to properly implement an intelligence-led program, or are afraid that it is out of their budget.Building an Intelligence-Led Security Program is the first book to show how to implement an intelligence-led program in your enterprise on any budget. It will show you how to implement a security information a security information and event management system, collect and analyze logs, and how to practice real cyber threat intelligence. You''ll learn how to understand your network in-depth so that you can protect it in the best possible way.Provides a roadmap and direction on how to build an intelligence-led information security program to protect your company.Learn how to understand your network through logs and client monitoring, so you can effectively evaluate threat intelligence.Learn how to use popular tools such as BIND, SNORT, squid, STIX, TAXII, CyBox, and splunk to conduct network intelligence.

Love, Fiercely: A Gilded Age Romance

Product : Love, Fiercely: A Gilded Age Romance
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : For readers who savored The American Heiress, Jean Zimmerman recreates the glittering world of Edith Minturn and I. N. Phelps Stokes. Contemporaries of the Astors and Vanderbilts, they grew up together along the shores of bucolic Staten Island, linked by privilege - her grandparents built the world''s fastest clipper ship, his family owned most of Murray Hill. Theirs was a world filled with mansions, balls, summer homes, and extended European vacations. Newton became a passionate preserver of New York history and published the finest collection of Manhattan maps and views in a six-volume series. Edith became the face of the age when Daniel Chester French sculpted her for Chicago''s Columbian Exposition of 1893 as The Republic, a colossus intended to match the Statue of Liberty''s grandeur. Together they battled on behalf of New York''s poor and powerless, as reformers who could never themselves want for anything. Through it all, they lived what might be the greatest love story never told. From the splendid cottages of the Berkshires to the salons of 1890s Paris, Love, Fier cely is the real story of a world long relegated to fiction.

Rigoletto: Critical Edition Study Score

Product : Rigoletto: Critical Edition Study Score
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : “I complain bitterly of the editions of my last operas, made with such little care, and filled with an infinite number of errors.”—Giuseppe Verdi   The University of Chicago Press, in collaboration with Casa Ricordi, has undertaken to publish the first critical edition of the complete works of Giuseppe Verdi. The series, based exclusively on original sources, is the only one to present authentic versions of all of the composer’s works; together with his operas, the critical edition presents his songs, his choral music and sacred pieces, and his string quartet and other instrumental works. The Works of Giuseppe Verdi will be an invaluable standard reference work—a necessary acquisition for all music libraries and a joy to own for all lovers of opera. The new series of study scores presents an adaptation of each critical edition that provides scholars with an affordable and portable option for exploring Verdi’s oeuvre. The study scores have been designed to distinguish editors’ marks from Verdi’s own notations while remaining clear enough for use in performance. The introduction to each score discusses the work’s sources, composition, and performance history, as well as performance practices, instrumentation, and problems of notation. The newest editions of the study scores examine two of Verdi’s three-act operas: La traviata and Rigoletto.

Comparative Political Leadership

Product : Comparative Political Leadership
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : What do we expect from our leaders, and how do we judge their performance? There can be no substantive assessment of leaders and leadership without comparing the fundamentally different contexts and settings in which leaders operate. At a time when international political research is rediscovering the importance of leadership, this volume marks the first major study specifically devoted to exploring all the fields of political leadership from a genuinely comparative perspective. The chapters in this volume cast a new light on the changing features and trends in the classic areas of political leadership, such as executive and legislative leadership, and leadership in political parties. In addition, they explore many younger subfields of political leadership research, such as crisis leadership and leadership in social movements. These area-related analyses are complemented by more expansive assessments of leadership in old and new democracies, in non-democratic regimes, and in international organizations. The distinguished team of contributors is composed of leadership scholars from three continents and nine countries.

Terrorism in Cyberspace: The Next Generation

Product : Terrorism in Cyberspace: The Next Generation
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The war on terrorism has not been won, Gabriel Weimann argues in Terrorism in Cyberspace, the successor to his seminal Terror on the Internet. Even though al-Qaeda''s leadership has been largely destroyed and its organization disrupted, terrorist attacks take 12,000 lives annually worldwide, and jihadist terrorist ideology continues to spread. How? Largely by going online and adopting a new method of organization. Terrorist structures, traditionally consisting of loose-net cells, divisions, and subgroups, are ideally suited for flourishing on the Internet through websites, e-mail, chat rooms, e-groups, forums, virtual message boards, YouTube, Google Earth, and other outlets. Terrorist websites, including social media platforms, now number close to 10,000. This book addresses three major questions: why and how terrorism went online; what recent trends can be discerned-such as engaging children and women, promoting lone wolf attacks, and using social media; and what future threats can be expected, along with how they can be reduced or countered. To answer these questions, Terrorism in Cyberspace analyzes content from more than 9,800 terrorist websites, and Weimann, who has been studying terrorism online since 1998, selects the most important kinds of web activity, describes their background and history, and surveys their content in terms of kind and intensity, the groups and prominent individuals involved, and effects. He highlights cyberterrorism against financial, governmental, and engineering infrastructure; efforts to monitor, manipulate, and disrupt terrorists'' online efforts; and threats to civil liberties posed by ill-directed efforts to suppress terrorists'' online activities as future, worrisome trends.

Peg Zeglin Brand and an international group of contributors interrogate the body and the meaning of physical beauty in this multidisciplinary volume. This striking and provocative book explores the history of bodily beautification; the physicality of socially or culturally determined choices of beautification; the interplay of gender, race, class, age, sexuality, and ethnicity within and on the body; and the aesthetic meaning of the concept of beauty in an increasingly globalized world.

Meaning And Interpretation Of Music In Cinema

Product : Meaning And Interpretation Of Music In Cinema
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : By exploring the relationship between music and the moving image in film narrative, David Neumeyer shows that film music is not conceptually separate from sound or dialogue, but that all three are manipulated and continually interact in the larger acoustical world of the sound track. In a medium in which the image has traditionally trumped sound, Neumeyer turns our attention to the voice as the mechanism through which narrative (dialog, speech) and sound (sound effects, music) come together. Complemented by music examples, illustrations, and contributions by James Buhler, Meaning and Interpretation of Music in Cinema is the capstone of Neumeyer''s 25-year project in the analysis and interpretation of music in film.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : This history of American crime policy at the federal level compiles and examines for the first time the record of recent presidential administrations in the area of crime control--their agendas and the legislation actually enacted by the Congress. Nancy Marion analyzes the relationship between politics and criminal justice and concludes, after reviewing the administrations of Kennedy through Clinton, that the federal response to crime has been largely symbolic, and that federal policies tend to have provided political benefit to elected officials while not actually reducing crime by any significant amount. This study and its findings will be of interest to scholars in political science, government, criminology, and criminal justice.

Maximization, Whatever The Cost:  Race, Redistricting, And The Department Of Justice

Product : Maximization, Whatever The Cost: Race, Redistricting, And The Department Of Justice
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : During the early 1990s the Department of Justice used its Voting Rights Act power to object to racially unfair redistricting laws to force states to maximize minority congressional districts. The results were dramatic: Congressional Black Caucus membership swelled from 25 to 38 and nine new Hispanic congresspersons were sworn in. Only three years later, the maximization strategy lay in ruins. The courts forced many of the new minority districts to be redrawn and the judiciary reserved especially harsh criticism for the Department. Cunningham examines and analyzes how the Department came to adopt the maximization strategy. He explores the bureaucratic culture of the Division''s Voting Section, its history, and the interaction of its progressive career staff with more conservative political appointees. The Division works amidst a vibrant interest group environment, with civil rights advocates, the state, and political parties eager for influence. Cunningham shows how that influence contest was won by the civil rights groups, how their preferred interpretations of fair redistricting and discriminatory purpose were adopted by the Division, and how their chosen districting models were forced upon states by the Division. He examines the effect the Department has had on federalism, representation, and its own impaired credibility with the judiciary. Finally, he suggests how the Division might resurrect its damaged reputation for balanced enforcement. An important study for scholars, students, and public policy makers involved with civil rights, public administration, and public law.

Water 4.0: The Past, Present, And Future Of The World?s Most Vital Resource

Product : Water 4.0: The Past, Present, And Future Of The World?s Most Vital Resource
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Turn on the faucet, and water pours out. Pull out the drain plug, and the dirty water disappears. Most of us give little thought to the hidden systems that bring us water and take it away when we’re done with it. But these underappreciated marvels of engineering face an array of challenges that cannot be solved without a fundamental change to our relationship with water, David Sedlak explains in this enlightening book. To make informed decisions about the future, we need to understand the three revolutions in urban water systems that have occurred over the past 2,500 years and the technologies that will remake the system. The author starts by describing Water 1.0, the early Roman aqueducts, fountains, and sewers that made dense urban living feasible. He then details the development of drinking water and sewage treatment systems—the second and third revolutions in urban water. He offers an insider’s look at current systems that rely on reservoirs, underground pipe networks, treatment plants, and storm sewers to provide water that is safe to drink, before addressing how these water systems will have to be reinvented. For everyone who cares about reliable, clean, abundant water, this book is essential reading.

Indecent Exposures: Eadweard Muybridge's Animal Locomotion Nudes

Product : Indecent Exposures: Eadweard Muybridge's Animal Locomotion Nudes
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : A revelatory look at how Muybridge's photographs of nudes in motion propelled crucial scientific and cultural advancements of the modern era Photographer Eadweard Muybridge (1830–1904), often termed the father of the motion picture, presented his iconic Animal Locomotion series in 1887. Produced under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania and encompassing thousands of photographs of humans and animals in motion, the series included more than 300 plates of nude men and women engaged in activities such as swinging a baseball bat, playing leapfrog, and performing housework—an astonishing fact given the period’s standards of propriety. In the first sustained examination of these nudes and the remarkable success of their production, wide circulation, and reception, Indecent Exposures positions this revolutionary enterprise as central to crucial advancements of the modern era. Muybridge’s nudes ushered in new attitudes toward science and progress, including Darwinian ideas about human evolution and hierarchy; quickened debates over the role of photography and scientific investigation in art; and offered innovative perspectives on the human body. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time.

Jefferson's America: The President, The Purchase, And The Explorers Who Transformed A Nation

Product : Jefferson's America: The President, The Purchase, And The Explorers Who Transformed A Nation
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The surprising story of how Thomas Jefferson commanded an unrivaled age of American exploration—and in presiding over that era of discovery, forged a great nation.  At the dawn of the nineteenth century, as Britain, France, Spain, and the United States all jockeyed for control of the vast expanses west of the Mississippi River, the stakes for American expansion were incalculably high. Even after the American purchase of the Louisiana Territory, Spain still coveted that land and was prepared to employ any means to retain it. With war expected at any moment, Jefferson played a game of strategy, putting on the ground the only Americans he could: a cadre of explorers who finally annexed it through courageous investigation.  Responsible for orchestrating the American push into the continent was President Thomas Jefferson. He most famously recruited Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, who led the Corps of Discovery to the Pacific, but at the same time there were other teams who did the same work, in places where it was even more crucial. William Dunbar, George Hunter, Thomas Freeman, Peter Custis, and the dauntless Zebulon Pike—all were dispatched on urgent missions to map the frontier and keep up a steady correspondence with Washington about their findings. But they weren’t always well-matched—with each other and certainly not with a Spanish army of a thousand soldiers or more. These tensions threatened to undermine Jefferson’s goals for the nascent country, leaving the United States in danger of losing its foothold in the West. Deeply researched and inspiringly told, Jefferson’s America rediscovers the robust and often harrowing action from these seminal expeditions and illuminates the president’s vision for a continental America.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : David Kenyon Webster’s memoir is a clear-eyed, emotionally charged chronicle of youth, camaraderie, and the chaos of war. Relying on his own letters home and recollections he penned just after his discharge, Webster gives a first hand account of life in E Company, 101st Airborne Division, crafting a memoir that resonates with the immediacy of a gripping novel. From the beaches of Normandy to the blood-dimmed battlefields of Holland, here are acts of courage and cowardice, moments of irritating boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror, and pitched urban warfare. Offering a remarkable snapshot of what it was like to enter Germany in the last days of World War II, Webster presents a vivid, varied cast of young paratroopers from all walks of life, and unforgettable glimpses of enemy soldiers and hapless civilians caught up in the melee. Parachute Infantry is at once harsh and moving, boisterous and tragic, and stands today as an unsurpassed chronicle of war—how men fight it, survive it, and remember it.

Rural Wage Employment in Developing Countries: Theory, Evidence, And Policy

Product : Rural Wage Employment in Developing Countries: Theory, Evidence, And Policy
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : There is a striking scarcity of work conducted on rural labour markets in the developing world, particularly in Africa. This book aims to fill this gap by bringing together a group of contributors who boast substantial field experience researching rural wage employment in various developing countries. It provides critical perspectives on mainstream approaches to rural/agrarian development, and analysis of agrarian change and rural transformations from a long-term perspective.This book challenges the notion that rural areas in low- and middle-income countries are dominated by self-employment. It purports that this conventional view is largely due to the application of conceptual frameworks and statistical conventions that are ill-equipped to capture labour market participation. The contributions in this book offer a variety of methodological lessons for the study of rural labour markets, focusing in particular on the use of mixed methods in micro-level field research, and more emphasis on capturing occupation multiplicity.The emphasis on context, history, and specific configurations of power relations affecting rural labour market outcomes are key and reoccurring features of this book. This analysis will help readers think about policy options to improve the quantity and quality of rural wage employment, their impact on the poorest rural people, and their political feasibility in each context.

Category : Books>Travel
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The practice of packing a bag is a situation where subtle, daily processes can attune us to the relationships and experiences formed in mobile situations. There has been great attention to mundane and material practices in tourism, yet the process of packing, which is integral to any journey, remains unexamined.Everyday Practices of Tourism Mobilities:Packing a Bagexpands on the foundational theories of tourist practices through a rich assortment of photographic documentation and interviews with tourists in hostelling accommodation. It presents the intricacies and relations emerging through packing and the connections to an array of actors entwined in both touristic and everyday experiences of movement. Using case studies in Iceland and Nepal, the book explores how idealised tourist destinations influence everyday actions. The disjuncture between mundane routines and the heightened immersive environments is conducive to tourists attuning to the entanglement of actors and experiences beyond individual expectations. The book traces these moments of collective experiences to reflect on the intersections of globalised mobility and everyday tourist practices.The international scope of this highly original and intriguing book will appeal to a broad academic audience, including scholars of tourism, cultural and social geography, mobilities studies and environmental humanities.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Edgar Award–winning author Stefanie Pintoff shoots to thrill in her gripping new novel of suspense.    The night before the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a crowd gathers on Manhattan’s Upper West Side to watch the giant balloons fill with helium and rise toward the sky. Then the festive ritual takes a terrifying turn—a gunshot rings out, police commissioner Logan Donovan falls, and panic erupts. When the chaos clears, another crime is revealed: Donovan’s daughter, Allie, has been kidnapped. Soon the abductor will make his shocking demands.   Within hours, Special Agent Eve Rossi and her handpicked team of quick-thinking, swift-moving, hard-striking former convicts know a lot about the kidnapper. He’s somewhere close by, holding Allie along with a captive boy. He hates Logan Donovan enough to destroy him. And he will kill.   But there’s more Eve and her team don’t know—about a weapon planted inside the parade, about Commissioner Donovan’s hidden life, and about the secrets his daughter keeps. As people line the streets, bands and marchers prepare, and the massive parade steps off into New York’s echoing canyons, a desperate race begins to keep the city from being torn asunder by a brutal act of violence. But even as her squad deploys for action, Eve grapples with a harrowing question: Whom should she fear more—a vengeful man threatening innocent lives, or a charming, arrogant cop fighting to save his daughter, who may be trying to cover up his crimes?Praise for Stefanie Pintoff’s Hostage Taker   “The perfect blend: an urban thriller as modern as tomorrow’s New York Times, driven by a two-hundred-year-old idea, with a main character to die for . . .

The Natural Contract

Product : The Natural Contract
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Global environmental change, argues Michel Serres, has forced us to reconsider our relationship to nature. In this translation of his influential 1990 book Le Contrat Naturel, Serres calls for a natural contract to be negotiated between Earth and its inhabitants.World history is often referred to as the story of human conflict. Those struggles that are seen as our history must now include the uncontrolled violence that humanity perpetrates upon the earth, and the uncontrollable menace to human life posed by the earth in reaction to this violence. Just as a social contract once brought order to human relations, Serres believes that we must now sign a natural contract with the earth to bring balance and reciprocity to our relations with the planet that gives us life. Our survival depends on the extent to which humans join together and act globally, on an earth now conceived as an entity.Tracing the ancient beginnings of modernity, Serres examines the origins and possibilities of a natural contract through an extended meditation on the contractual foundations of law and science. By invoking a nonhuman, physical world, Serres asserts, science frees us from the oppressive confines of a purely social existence, but threatens to become a totalitarian order in its own right. The new legislator of the natural contract must bring science and law into balance.Serres ends his meditation by retelling the story of the natural contract as a series of parables. He sees humanity as a spacecraft that with the help of science and technology has cast off from familiar moorings. In place of the ties that modernity and analytic reason have severed, we find a network of relations both stranger and stronger than any we once knew, binding us to one another and to the world. The philosopher''s harrowing and joyous task, Serres tells us, is that of comprehending and experiencing the bonds of violence and love that unite us in our spacewalk to the spaceship Mother Earth.Wise, rich and poetic . . . not simply a philosophical study of the Environment, or an ecological questioning of Philosophy . . . Nature is acknowledged as an inside force which breaks [the philosopher''s] discourse, and opens it up to a vigilant poetic meditation.--Substance: A Review of Theory and Literary Criticism

Product : Britains Declining Empire: The Road To Decolonisation, 1918-1968
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : An authoritative political history of one of the world''s most important empires on the road to decolonisation. Ronald Hyam''s 2007 book offers a major reassessment of the end of empire which combines a study of British policymaking with case studies on the experience of decolonization across Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. He describes the dysfunctional policies of an imperial system coping with postwar, interwar and wartime crises from 1918 to 1945 but the main emphasis is on the period after 1945 and the gradual unravelling of empire as a result of international criticism, and the growing imbalance between Britain''s capabilities and its global commitments. He analyses the transfers of power from India in 1947 to Swaziland in 1968, the major crises such as Suez and assesses the role of leading figures from Churchill, Attlee and Eden to Macmillan and Wilson. This is essential reading for scholars and students of empire and decolonisation.

Amid its hushed and sedate corridors surge great currents of history and violence, paintings whose power belies their own fragility. There also lies the legacy of her great-grandfather Ted, the museum guard who slipped and fell moments before reaching the suffragette Mary Richardson as she took a blade to one of the gallery''s masterpieces, Velázquez''s  Rokeby Venus, on the eve of World War I.Drawn to such transgressors and the omens they bring with them, and after nine years at the Gallery, Marie begins to feel restless. At home she guards another, more humble collection-her handcrafted miniature landscapes-where she also remains a remarkably oppressive custodian of her own desires. A decisive change comes in the form of a winter trip to Paris. With the arrival of an uninvited guest and an unexpected encounter, Marie''s carefully contained world is torn open.A rich, resonant novel of beguiling depths and beautiful strangeness, Asunder follows one woman''s journey to reconcile her roles as participant and spectator, and explores the delicate balance we must all find between creation and destruction, control and surrender.

When she insists he has mistaken her for someone else, Dr. Straker sends a telegram to her uncle, who replies that Georgina Ferrars is at home with him in London: Your patient must be an imposter. Suddenly her voluntary confinement becomes involuntary. Who is in her uncle''s house? And where is her writing case and her dragonfly pin, keepsakes from her mother from which she is never parted?

Description : Millions of people were charmed by the homespun golf advice dispensed in Harvey Penick''s Little Red Book, a sports classic that went on to become the best-selling sports book of all time. Yet, beyond the Texas golf courses where Penick happily toiled for the better part of eight decades, few people knew the self-made golf pro who coaxed the best out of countless greats - Tom Kite, Ben Crenshaw, Betsy Rawls, Mickey Wright - all champions who considered Penick their coach and lifelong friend.   In  Harvey Penick,  Kevin Robbins tells the story of this legendary steward of the game. From his first job as a caddie at age eight to his ascendance to head golf pro at the esteemed Austin Country Club to his playing days when he competed with Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen to his mentorship of some of golf''s finest players, Penick studied every nuance of the game. Along the way, he scribbled his observations and anecdotes, tips and tricks, and genuine love of the sport in his little red book, which ultimately became a gift to golfers everywhere.   Part elegy to golf''s greatest teacher, part inquiry into his simple, impactful teachings, part history of golf over the past century, Harvey Penick is an exquisitely written sports biography.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : When World War I ended over one million American vets came home, and every town in the nation built a memorial in hopes that the unprecedented conflict would never be forgotten. Yet, over the next century, it was.Ten years ago, Richard Rubin set out to interview every last living doughboy-several dozen, aged 101 to 113. They shared with him, at the last possible moment (all are gone now), their story of America''s Great War. They were nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century: self-reliant, humble, and stoic; never complaining, still marveling at the immensity of the war they helped win. A decade in the making, The Last of the Doughboys is a sweeping new look at our forgotten world war, and a moving meditation on character, grace, aging, and memory.

Description : After twenty years of service, Mayor Thomas Menino is stepping down from his office as one of the longest-serving major-city mayors in United States history-and one of the most popular politicians in modern memory.

He''s not known as a fancy talker, but he gets things done. Under his wing, the city has enjoyed unprecedented economic growth while fostering a new attitude of acceptance. Menino shows how a very old city shook off its Puritan roots and racial tensions to become a truly twenty-first-century city.

Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields

Product : Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : In a surprising and deeply unsettling ( Booklist ) account that powerfully revises history, Wendy Lower uncovers the role of German women on the Nazi eastern front - not only as plunderers and direct witnesses, but as actual killers. Many women saw the emerging Nazi empire as a wild east of opportunity - and yet could not have imagined what they would do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival research and fieldwork, presents compelling evidence that these women were more than desk murderers or comforters of murderous German men: they went on shopping sprees and romantic outings to the Jewish ghettos; they were present at killing-field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also shooting Jews. And Lower uncovers the stories of SS wives with children of their own whose brutality is as chilling as any in history. Hitler''s Furies challenges our deepest beliefs: women can be as brutal as men, and the evidence can be hidden for seventy years.

Strategic Project Risk Appraisal And Management

Product : Strategic Project Risk Appraisal And Management
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Success in business depends on two broad management skills: ''doing the right thing'' (choosing the right projects) and ''doing things right'' (good project management). This book examines the challenges that managers face in assessing the likely risks and benefits that need to be taken into account when choosing projects. It then explores the strategic level risks that will need to be dealt with in managing those projects and suggests risk management strategies. In so doing, it makes a rare but important link between strategic level appraisal of project opportunities and project risk management. Many projects have similar characteristics that are common to a number of projects experienced by the same or other organizations. Elaine Harris shows how the use of a project typology can guide project risk management by identifying common risks shared by projects of each type. Her cutting edge research will help advanced project practitioners and researchers in projects and risk management to develop a risk management strategy that is better suited to the context of their projects and one that is flexible enough to develop and adapt once the project decision has been taken and the real-world of project management and delivery begins.

Karl Barth and the Incarnation: Christology and the Humility of God

Product : Karl Barth and the Incarnation: Christology and the Humility of God
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : This work demonstrates the significance of Karl Barth''s Christology by examining it in the context of his orientation toward the classical tradition - an orientation that was both critical and sympathetic. To compare this Christology with the doctrine''s history, Sumner suggests first that the Chalcedonian portrait of the incarnation is conceputally vulnerable at a number of points. By recasting the doctrine in actualist terms - the history of Jesus'' lived existence as God''s fulfillment of His covenant with creatures, rather than a metaphysical uniting of natures - Barth is able to move beyond problems inherent in the tradition. Despite a number of formal and material differences, however, Barth''s position coheres with the intent of the ancient councils and ought to be judged as orthodox. Barth''s great contribution to Christology is in the unapologetic affirmation of ''the humanity of God''.

Scientific Writing = Thinking In Words

Product : Scientific Writing = Thinking In Words
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Telling people about research is just as important as doing it. But many researchers, who, in all other respects, are competent scientists, are afraid of writing. They are wary of the unwritten rules, the unspoken dogma and the inexplicably complex style, all of which seem to pervade conventional thinking about scientific writing.This book has been written to expose these phantoms as largely smoke and mirrors, and replace them with principles that make communicating research easier and encourage researchers to write confidently. It presents a way of thinking about writing that emulates the way good scientists think about research.It concentrates on the structure of articles, rather than simply on grammar and syntax. So, it is an ideal reference for researchers preparing articles for scientific journals, posters, conference presentations, reviews and popular articles; for students preparing theses; and for researchers whose first language is not English.Scientific Writing = Thinking in Wordsexpounds principles that produce scientific articles in a wide range of disciplines that are focused, concise and, best of all, easy to write and read. As one senior scientist observed, "This book not only made me a better writer; it made me a better scientist".

Visual FoxPro to Visual Basic .NET

Product : Visual FoxPro to Visual Basic .NET
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Starting with simple examples, you?ll see how the multi-user, local area network applications that Visual FoxPro developers are used to building are constructed in Visual Basic .NET. You?ll learn how to use Crystal Reports to build reports like the ones you build in FoxPro. You?ll discover how to use DataAdapters and datasets instead of DBFs. You?ll see examples of the paradigm shift that client-server programming imposes, and why .NET solves that problem (even when you wouldn?t need to solve it in FoxPro.) And you?ll learn how to give your FoxPro and Visual Basic applications smart client remote data access. You?ll understand how to begin the construction of a database project in Visual Basic with a container form and a MainMenu instead of using _Screen and MSYSMENU. You?ll learn how variables are declared and used; how menus are controlled; how to use events, and why you have to use events in VB when they?re unnecessary in FoxPro. You?ll learn how to build inheritable forms, Visual Basic?s answer to FoxPro?s form class templates, to reduce programming to a minimum. You?ll learn why properties are like variables in FoxPro, but more like functions in VB. And you?ll learn where Visual Basic adds features that you didn?t have in FoxPro and didn?t know that you needed. You?ll learn where to look for all of those FoxPro commands and functions that you need. And in case you haven?t yet used SQL Server with FoxPro, the examples will demonstrate how it?s done first in FoxPro, then in VB .NET. Shows how to build a typical application in Visual FoxPro, including DBF, SQL Server and Internet access; then demonstrates how to build the same type of application in VB .NET Highlights the main differences in specific issues, including printing, events, data access, creation and use of properties Contains an appendix listing the principal FoxPro commands and functions and their Visual Basic equivalents Includes a table showing where to find the settings in the FoxPro?s Tools, Options menu pages in VB .NET Shows how to access data remotely from your FoxPro and VB .NET applications Explains how project DLLs are created and used in other projects within a solution Shows how to use middle tier business objects to simplify ongoing development Source code downloadable from www.samspublishing.com

The Generalissimo: Chiang Kai-shek and the Struggle for Modern China

Product : The Generalissimo: Chiang Kai-shek and the Struggle for Modern China
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : One of the most momentous stories of the last century is China’s rise from a self-satisfied, anti-modern, decaying society into a global power that promises to one day rival the United States. Chiang Kai-shek, an autocratic, larger-than-life figure, dominates this story. A modernist as well as a neo-Confucianist, Chiang was a man of war who led the most ancient and populous country in the world through a quarter century of bloody revolutions, civil conflict, and wars of resistance against Japanese aggression.In 1949, when he was defeated by Mao Zedong—his archrival for leadership of China—he fled to Taiwan, where he ruled for another twenty-five years. Playing a key role in the cold war with China, Chiang suppressed opposition with his “white terror,” controlled inflation and corruption, carried out land reform, and raised personal income, health, and educational levels on the island. Consciously or not, he set the stage for Taiwan’s evolution of a Chinese model of democratic modernization.Drawing heavily on Chinese sources including Chiang’s diaries, The Generalissimo provides the most lively, sweeping, and objective biography yet of a man whose length of uninterrupted, active engagement at the highest levels in the march of history is excelled by few, if any, in modern history. Jay Taylor shows a man who was exceedingly ruthless and temperamental but who was also courageous and conscientious in matters of state. Revealing fascinating aspects of Chiang’s life, Taylor provides penetrating insight into the dynamics of the past that lie behind the struggle for modernity of mainland China and its relationship with Taiwan.

Note Book

Product : Note Book
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Essays and Letters
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The hunger for a feeling of connection that informs most everything I''ve written flows from a common break in a common heart, one I share with everyone I''ve ever really known.--Note BookEvery single morning since early 2007, Princeton English professor Jeff Nunokawa has posted a brief essay in the Notes section of his Facebook page. Often just a few sentences but never more than a few paragraphs, these compelling literary and personal meditations have raised the Facebook post to an art form, gained thousands of loyal readers, and been featured in theNew Yorker. InNote Book, Nunokawa has selected some 250 of the most powerful and memorable of these essays, many accompanied by the snapshots originally posted alongside them. The result is a new kind of literary work for the age of digital and social media, one that reimagines the essay''s efforts, at least since Montaigne, to understand our common condition by trying to understand ourselves.Ranging widely, the essays often begin with a quotation from one of Nunokawa''s favorite writers--George Eliot, Henry James, Gerard Manley Hopkins, W. H. Auden, Robert Frost, or James Merrill, to name a few. At other times, Nunokawa is just as likely to be discussing Joni Mitchell or Spanish soccer striker Fernando Torres.Confessional and moving, enlightening and entertaining,Note Bookis ultimately a profound reflection on loss and loneliness--and on the compensations that might be found through writing, literature, and connecting to others through social media.

A Gardener's Life

Product : A Gardener's Life
Category : Books>Home and Garden
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Lady Salisbury has been a gardener since, as a child in the 1930s, she cultivated tiny patches of her parents'' gardens in Ireland and the West of England. Later, as chatelaine first of Cranborne Manor and then of Hatfield House, she revived two of the great historic gardens of England. Then there the gardens that, as a professional garden designer, she has created for others, notably for the Prince of Wales at Highgrove and for the Museum of Garden History and Cosby Hall in London (''As a gardener who has lived the greater part of her life in Tudor and Stuart houses, to be asked to design a garden for an Elizabethan palace was an enjoyable challenge''). Renowned for her depth of scholarship and her design skill, she has also led the way in as a pioneer of organic gardening (''when I began, in 1948, I was written off as a complete crank''). Now in her eighties, she not only continues to tend her garden in Provence, she is also making a roof garden (''the first I''ve ever done'') for her house in Chelsea, and designing gardens for clients in England, Ireland, Italy and the United States. This book encapsulates her gardening experience.

The Land Of Opportunity: Joseph Haydn And Britain

Product : The Land Of Opportunity: Joseph Haydn And Britain
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : On more than one occasion, the great composer Joseph Haydn (1732–1809) remarked that he became well known in his native Austria only after he had made two visits to London in the 1790s. Although he was connected with the Esterházy court for over forty years, and his music was performed in many of Europe’s major cities, London was to be the only European city, apart from Vienna, to welcome the composer in person. He engaged fully with London’s musical life during his two visits and responded readily to the city’s commercial vitality. He later told his biographer, Albert Christoph Dies, that London was his “land of opportunity.” The essays in this volume examine the relationship between the composer and the commercial, political, and social spheres of London during the eighteenth century and help explain the unparalleled popularity Haydn and his music have enjoyed ever since.

Moving Mountains Study Guide with DVD: Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority

Product : Moving Mountains Study Guide with DVD: Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality>Christianity
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : In Luke 11:1, the disciples asked Jesus, Teach us to pray! Most of us want to know more about how prayer works. While we are used to offering up prayers, we wonder if we are praying in the most effective way or if we are approaching the throne of God in the right way. We ask ourselves:How do I listen for God?How do I pray for healing?How do I pray when I am under spiritual attack?How do I pray to break through strongholds of habitual sin?How do I pray for protection?How do I pray for my lost friends and family?In Moving Mountains Study Guide, bestselling author John Eldredge shows how we labor under the misconception that prayer is asking God to intervene instead of partnering with him to get things done. This faulty assumption leads to untold confusion and grief when we ask of God but can''t sense He hears us—or even cares. Rather, Jesus says, I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matthew 16:19). When we operate from this position, we approach prayer with far greater confidence. We understand we have a role in making change happen and are not victims of circumstance—that we are sons and daughters of God bestowed with tremendous authority.Sessions include:There Is a Way Things Work (11:00)The Cry of the Heart (12:00)The Prayer of Intervention (12:00)The Prayer of Consecration (14:00)Listening Prayer (12:00)Warfare Prayer (12:00)Healing Prayer (12:00)Holding the Heart in Unanswered Prayer (13:00)Designed for use with the Moving Mountains Study Guide 9780718037512 (sold separately).

Science, Virtue, And The Future Of Humanity

Product : Science, Virtue, And The Future Of Humanity
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Science, Virtue, and the Future of Humanity addresses each of the key public policy issues of our techno-future from the perspective of deeply informed and philosophically inclined public intellectuals. Among the issues addressed are the detachment of our idea of justice from any credible foundation; Tocqueville''s prescience on how a cognitive elite might be the aristocracy to be most feared in our time; robotization and the possibility of being ruled by morally challenged robots; organ markets; the degradation of liberal education by obsessive techno-enthusiasm; biotechnology and biological determinism; the birth dearth and the inevitable erosion of our entitlements; the possibility that our techno-domination is basically an unfolding of the Lockean logic of our foundation; and the future of the free exercise of religion in an aggressively libertarian time. All in all, this book should provoke widespread discussion about the relationship between scientific/technological progress and the one true moral/spiritual progress that takes place over the course of every particular human life.

Ghana Armed Forces In Lebanon And Liberia Peace Operations

Product : Ghana Armed Forces In Lebanon And Liberia Peace Operations
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : Africa Nations have contributed to peace operations in conflict zones across the world since the deployment of the United Nations Operations in the Congo in 1960. This has placed Africa as a major stakeholder in the maintenance of peace and security. For over fifty years Ghana has earned the international reputation as one of the largest and consistent Troop Contributing Country in United Nations mandated peace operations. While Ghana has long been an active contributor to peace operations, there are few or no comparative studies that systematically analyze the actual roles played by troops in many of the different conflict context where they have served. This book therefore, focuses on a comparison of two peace operations undertaken by the forces of an African Nation in two different missions in Lebanon and Liberia.

Angela's Ashes

Product : Angela's Ashes
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood. So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt, born in Depression-era Brooklyn to recent Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank''s mother, Angela, has no money to feed the children since Frank''s father, Malachy, rarely works, and when he does he drinks his wages. Yet Malachy does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Perhaps it is a story that accounts for Frank''s survival. Wearing rags for diapers, begging a pig''s head for Christmas dinner, and searching the pubs for his father, Frank endures poverty, near-starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors yet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance and remarkable forgiveness. Imbued with Frank McCourt''s astounding humor and compassion -- and movingly read in his own voice -- Angela''s Ashes is a glorious audiobook that bears all the marks of a classic.

Europe: The Faltering Project

Product : Europe: The Faltering Project
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 5
Description : The future of Europe and the role it will play in the 21st century are among the most important political questions of our time. The optimism of a decade ago has now faded but the stakes are higher than ever. The way these questions are answered will have enormous implications not only for all Europeans but also for the citizens of Europe''s closest and oldest ally - the USA. In this new book, one of Europe''s leading intellectuals examines the political alternatives facing Europe today and outlines a course of action for the future. Habermas advocates a policy of gradual integration of Europe in which key decisions about Europe''s future are put in the hands of its peoples, and a “bipolar commonality” of the West in which a more unified Europe is able to work closely with the United States to build a more stable and equitable international order. This book includes Habermas''s portraits of three long-time philosophical companions, Richard Rorty, Jacques Derrida and Ronald Dworkin. It also includes several important new texts by Habermas on the impact of the media on the public sphere, on the enduring importance religion in post-secular societies, and on the design of a democratic constitutional order for the emergent world society.
