The Metaphysics of Love: Gender and Transcendence in Levinas

Product : The Metaphysics of Love: Gender and Transcendence in Levinas
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Emmanuel Levinas is best known for having reintroduced the question of ethics into the Continental philosophical tradition. In The Metaphysics of Love, however, Stella Sandford argues that an over-emphasis on ethics in the reception of Levinas''s thought has covered over both the basis and the details of his philosophical project-a metaphysics which affirms the necessity to think of an unqualified transcendence as a first principle.Sandford''s book is at the same time a powerful feminist critique of both Levinas''s gendered philosophical categories and the attempt to reclaim aspects of this philosophy for feminist theory.

A History of Global Anglicanism

Product : A History of Global Anglicanism
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Anglicanism can be seen as irredeemably English. In this book Kevin Ward questions that assumption. He explores the character of the African, Asian, Oceanic, Caribbean and Latin American churches which are now a majority in the world-wide communion, and shows how they are decisively shaping what it means to be Anglican. While emphasising the importance of colonialism and neo-colonialism for explaining the globalisation of Anglicanism, Ward does not focus predominantly on the Churches of Britain and N. America; nor does he privilege the idea of Anglicanism as an ''expansion of English Christianity''. At a time when Anglicanism faces the danger of dissolution Ward explores the historically deep roots of non-Western forms of Anglicanism, and the importance of the diversity and flexibility which has so far enabled Anglicanism to develop cohesive yet multiform identities around the world.

The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited

Product : The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Morris'' earlier work exposed the realities of how 700,000 Palestinians became refugees during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. While the focus of this edition remains the war and exodus, new archival material considers what happened in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa, and how these events led to the collapse of urban Palestine. Revealing battles and atrocities that contributed to the disintegration of rural communities, the story is harrowing. The refugees now number four million and their cause remains a major obstacle to regional peace. First Edition Hb (1988): 0-521-33028-9 First Edition Pb (1989): 0-521-33889-1

Epidemic Modelling: An Introduction

Product : Epidemic Modelling: An Introduction
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This general introduction to the mathematical techniques needed to understand epidemiology begins with an historical outline of some disease statistics dating from Daniel Bernoulli''s smallpox data of 1760. The authors then go on to describe simple deterministic and stochastic models in continuous and discrete time for epidemics taking place in either homogeneous or stratified (nonhomogeneous) populations. They offer a range of methods for constructing and analyzing models, mostly in the context of viral and bacterial diseases of human populations. These models are contrasted with models for rumors and macro-parasitic diseases. Questions of fitting data to models, and the use of models to understand methods for controlling the spread of infection, are discussed. Exercises and complementary results at the end of each chapter extend the scope of the text.

Ocean Waves: The Stochastic Approach

Product : Ocean Waves: The Stochastic Approach
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Waves observed in the ocean are extremely irregular and, from a physics standpoint, it seems impossible to describe this chaotic situation. Scientists can describe the situation by means of a stochastic approach. This book describes the stochastic method for ocean wave analysis. This method provides a route to predicting the characteristics of random ocean waves--information vital for the design and safe operation of ships and ocean structures. Assuming a basic knowledge of probability theory, the book begins with a chapter describing the essential elements of wind-generated random seas from the stochastic point of view. The following three chapters introduce spectral analysis techniques, probabilistic predictions of wave amplitudes, wave height and periodicity. A further four chapters discuss sea severity, extreme sea state, the directional wave energy spreading in random seas and special wave events such as wave breaking and group phenomena. Finally the stochastic properties of non-Gaussian waves are presented. Useful appendices and an extensive reference list are included. Examples of practical applications of the theories presented can be found throughout the text. This book will be suitable as a text for graduate students of naval, ocean and coastal engineering. It will also serve as a useful reference for research scientists and engineers working in this field.

Pauls Gift from Philippi: Conventions of Gift Exchange and Christian Giving

Product : Pauls Gift from Philippi: Conventions of Gift Exchange and Christian Giving
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book is a study of Paul''s response to the financial help he received from the church in Philippi while he was a prisoner in Rome. It examines Philippians 4.10-20 in the light of Greek and Roman practices and language regarding the exchange of gifts and favors in society. Dr. Peterman concludes that gift exchange or social reciprocity permeated every level of society in Paul''s day, and that Paul''s seemingly ungracious response was an attempt to create a new, Christian attitude to gifts and to giving.

The Voice Of Jesus In The Social Rhetoric Of James: Voice Of Jesus In The Social R

Product : The Voice Of Jesus In The Social Rhetoric Of James: Voice Of Jesus In The Social R
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This programmatic socio-rhetorical investigation approaches the Epistle of James as an instance of written deliberative rhetoric, and it seeks to ascertain the social texture of James 2.5, a rhetorical performance of language that in other contexts is explicitly attributed to Jesus. Utilizing the conventions of Greco-Roman rhetoric, Dr Wachob successively probes the inner texture, the intertexture, the social and cultural texture, and the ideological implications of the rhetoric in James 2.1-13. He analyses James'' activation of antecedent texts in the LXX, common conceptions and topics in the broader culture, and also sayings in the Jesus tradition. He concludes that James emanates from the same milieu as the pre-Matthean Sermon on the Mount and shows James 2.5 to be an artful performance of the principal beatitude in that early epitome of Jesus'' teachings.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This extended study of the treatment of the physical, material nature of the human body in the works of Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe examines the role that literary invention (with its rhetorical and linguistic strategies) plays in expressing and exploring the problems of physicality. The book takes up a wide range of issues relating to the body such as sexuality, cannibalism, scatology, and the fear of contagion. In an eclectic synthesis of recent critical approaches, Professor Flynn draws insight from biographical and psychoanalytic criticism as well as social history. Application of feminist theory offers an original and challenging discussion of renditions of female sexuality in both Defoe and Swift.

Interaction and the Development of Mind: INTERACTION & THE DEVELOPMENT

Product : Interaction and the Development of Mind: INTERACTION & THE DEVELOPMENT
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This study identifies key mechanisms through which a young child operates with external knowledge in his/her immediate social context. Central to this is the child''s capacity to draw on discourse-based understandings that have become evident in prior interaction. In contrast to studies that analyze development under different headings, such as language, emotions and cognition, Tony Wootton links these aspects in his examination of the state of understanding that exists at any given moment in interaction. The result is a distinctive social constructionist approach to children''s development.

Bartered Brides: Politics, Gender and Marriage in an Afghan Tribal Society

Product : Bartered Brides: Politics, Gender and Marriage in an Afghan Tribal Society
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Bartered Brides is a detailed study of marriage among the Maduzai, a tribal society in Afghan Turkistan. It is the first study of the area which looks in depth at both the domestic aspects of marriage and its relation to the productive and reproductive activities of women, as well as marriage as a means of managing political and economic conflict and competition. The fieldwork was carried out in the early 1970s before the 1978 coup and Soviet invasion. In this respect the book offers a unique account of a world that has disappeared. Nancy Tapper presents both male and female perspectives, detailed case studies and historical and statistical material. As an ethnographic and historical record, Bartered Brides breaks new ground in the study of Islam, the Middle East and South-west Asia. As the most detailed and extensive discussion of a Middle Eastern marriage system to date, it contributes to wider anthropological studies of marriage, politics and gender.

Swifts Politics: A Study in Disaffection

Product : Swifts Politics: A Study in Disaffection
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Modern scholarship has represented Jonathan Swift as both an Old Whig and a non-Jacobite Tory. Ian Higgins'' contextual reassessment of Swift''s political writing and recorded opinion considers the interpretative problems they present. It explores the consonance of Swift''s political writing with militant Jacobite Tory writing on affairs of Church and State, and demonstrates Swift''s dissimilarity from the Old Whig writers with whom modern criticism has misleadingly identified him. Swift''s writings of the 1690s, during the last four years of Queen Anne''s reign, and after the Hanoverian succession are shown to contain Jacobitical political implications when examined in their context in the ''paper wars'' of the period. Higgins concentrates on the partisan meanings of the great satires A Tale of a Tub and Gulliver''s Travels, and represents Swift (as he was read by his contemporaries) as a disaffected High Church Anglican extremist with Jacobite inclinations.

Allianz and the German Insurance Business, 1933-1945

Product : Allianz and the German Insurance Business, 1933-1945
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Gerald Feldman''s history of the internationally prominent insurance corporation Allianz AG in the Nazi era is based largely on new or previously unavailable archival sources, making this a more accurate account of Allianz and the men who directed its business than was ever before possible. Feldman takes the reader through varied cases of collaboration and conflict with the Nazi regime with fairness and a commitment to informed analysis, touching on issues of damages in the Pogrom of 1938, insuring facilities used in forced labor camps, and the problems of denazification and restitution. The broader issues examined in this study--when cooperation with Nazi policies was compulsory and when it was complicit, the way in which profit, ideology, and opportunism played a role in corporate decision making, and the question of how Jewish insurance assets were expropriated--are particularly relevant today given the ongoing international debate about restitution for Holocaust survivors. This book joins a growing body of scholarship based on open access to the records of German corporations in the Nazi era. Gerald D. Feldman is Professor of History at the University of California at Berkeley. His book, The Great Disorder (Oxford, 1993) received the DAAD Book Prize of the German Historical Association and the Book Prize for Central European History from the American Historical Association. He was an invited expert at the London Gold Conference in December 1997 and at the U.S. Conference on Holocaust Assets in Washington, D.C. in December 1998 and served as an advisor to the Presidential Commision on Holocaust Assets in the United States.

Description : This is the first English translation of Johann Friedrich Daube''s Musical Dilettante: A Treatise on Composition (Vienna, 1773). Written as a practical, comprehensive guide for aristocratic dilettantes wishing to compose instrumental chamber music for their social entertainment, the treatise covers genres from duets to double fugues, and includes the earliest instruction in string quartets and idiomatic orchestration of symphonies. Daube''s Musical Dilettante has long been overlooked due to his better-known Thorough-Bass in Three Chords (1756). Nevertheless, Musical Dilettante is the keystone of Daube''s theoretical writing, and offers the most comprehensive view of galant composition available in a single volume. The signature of Musical Dilettante is its unique textural emphasis and Daube''s examples sparkle with concertante interplay, conversational part-writing, and idiomatic instrumentation. The volume includes an introduction to Daube''s life and theoretical works and a bibliography. It will be of interest to students and scholars as well as performers.

Peter The Great: The Struggle For Power, 1671-1725

Product : Peter The Great: The Struggle For Power, 1671-1725
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book is a history of Russian politics during a fifty-year period that saw the transformation of Russia into a European monarchy by Peter the Great. Bushkovitch demonstrates that the interaction of the tsar and the ruling elite was at the core of Russian politics as Peter managed to largely master the contentious elite by a series of compromises, ultimately toward one that favored new men without excluding the aristocrats entirely. The outcome was a new balance of power at the center, and a new Europeanized culture.

Outcomes in Neurological and Neurosurgical Disorders

Product : Outcomes in Neurological and Neurosurgical Disorders
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Natural history and treatment outcome of disease are of critical importance to patients, clinicians and health care providers across the full range of medical disciplines. In many specialties, such as neurology and neurosurgery, this sort of information can be hard to obtain in the absence of extensive outcome studies and agreed measures of outcome in different conditions. This volume seeks to help inform about effective care and rehabilitation by providing a succinct review of whatever data is available for the majority of conditions encountered in clinical practice. Particular attention has been given to the evaluation of the severity and outcome of each disorder and to advise on comparing risks and benefits of treatment. This resource will prove invaluable to all involved in informing patients of treatment options and making important cost-efficient decisions on care. It should also be welcomed in the planning of clinical trials for potential new therapies and as a reference in medicolegal spheres.

Social Factors in the Personality Disorders: A Biopsychosocial Approach to Etiology and Treatment

Product : Social Factors in the Personality Disorders: A Biopsychosocial Approach to Etiology and Treatment
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Personality disorders have only recently been recognized as categories of psychiatric illness, and still need a sharper definition. This book interprets the personality disorders as products of the interaction between social influences and other etiological factors as part of a broad biopsychosocial model, and explains how personality traits develop into personality disorders. Strongly oriented toward recent empirical findings, the author argues that although biological, psychological and social factors are all necessary, none of them is by itself sufficient to produce a personality disorder. This basic model is also a model of treatment, in which the therapist addresses biological, experiential and social factors, and treatment recommendations focus particularly on social adjustment through the adaptive use of personality traits. Illustrated with revealing case vignettes, this balanced, humane and rational account of a difficult and sometimes contentious area will greatly assist clinicians in the understanding and treatment of individuals with personality disorder.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This persuasive book describes the complex, often violent connections between body and voice in Ovid''s Metamorphoses and narrative, lyric and dramatic works by Petrarch, Marston and Shakespeare. Lynn Enterline analyzes what happens when Renaissance authors revisit Ovid''s stories of violence and desire, paying close attention to the ways in which his subversive representations of gender, sexuality and the body influence later conceptions of the self and erotic life. This vividly original book makes a profound contribution to the study of Ovid''s presence in Renaissance literature.

Eroticism on the Renaissance Stage: Transcendence, Desire, and the Limits of the Visible

Product : Eroticism on the Renaissance Stage: Transcendence, Desire, and the Limits of the Visible
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Celia Daileader explores the paradoxes of eroticism in early modern English drama, where women and their bodies (represented by boy actors) were materially absent and yet symbolically central. Accounting for the significance of the space offstage, where most sexual acts take place, Daileader looks to the suppression of religious drama in England and the resulting secularization of the stage. She draws together questions about sexuality and the sacred, in the bodies--of Christ and of woman--banished from the early modern English stage.

Foreign Bodies and the Body Politic: Discourses of Social Pathology in Early Modern England

Product : Foreign Bodies and the Body Politic: Discourses of Social Pathology in Early Modern England
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book examines the overlap between early modern English attitudes to disease and to society and explores the cultural meaning of the image of the body at the interfaces of medicine, morality and politics in Tudor and early Stuart England. In particular, it demonstrates how the body politic''s metaphorical cankers and plagues were increasingly attributed to allegedly pathological foreign bodies such as Jews, Catholics, and witches. One can glimpse the origins of not only modern xenophobic attitudes to foreigners as carriers of disease, but also germ theory in general. The pathological and the political thus have a long-standing, problematic, and mostly neglected relationship, the prehistory of which this book seeks to uncover.

The Limits of Eroticism in Post-Petrarchan Narrative: Conditional Pleasure from Spenser to Marvell

Product : The Limits of Eroticism in Post-Petrarchan Narrative: Conditional Pleasure from Spenser to Marvell
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The poet Petrarch imagined that the hopeless but pure love of a woman could lead a man to heaven. In sixteenth-century England Edmund Spenser wrote poetry in the petrarchan tradition while heightening its dilemmas--flirting with a very different kind of feminine image. Dorothy Stephens shows that this flirtation emerges only in conditional language and situations, and that the eroticism the reader feels often belies a narrator''s insistence that it is illusory. She goes on to look at responses to Spenser''s eroticism among male and female writers in the seventeenth century.

Homer, Hesiod And The Hymns: Diachronic Development In Epic Diction

Product : Homer, Hesiod And The Hymns: Diachronic Development In Epic Diction
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book investigates the history of the ancient Greek tradition of oral epic poetry which culminated in the Iliad and Odyssey. These masterpieces did not exhaust the tradition, and poems were composed in the same style for several generations afterwards. One group of such poems is the ''Homeric Hymns'', ascribed to Homer in antiquity. In fact the origins of these Hymns are as mysterious as those of the Homeric epics themselves with little external evidence to assist. This book will be of interest to scholars concerned with Greek philology and dialects, Homeric epic and Greek literature of the Archaic period. It should also find readers amongst specialists in other oral poetries and those using computers in the Humanities.

Tiger Technology: The Creation Of A Semiconductor Industry In East Asia

Product : Tiger Technology: The Creation Of A Semiconductor Industry In East Asia
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book grows out of a five-year collaborative research project undertaken by the authors in East Asia. They have worked with firms and institutions in Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, to inquire into the micro-processes of firm-level organizational learning that underpin technology leverage in an industry such as semiconductors. The processes investigated are not specific to microchips, but can be seen working in one knowledge-intensive sector after another. Mathews and Cho argue that indeed these are the processes that will shape industrial evolution in the twenty-first century, not just in East Asia but in the developed world as well. Tiger Technology concludes with an important observation - that wealth can be generated just as much through management of technology diffusion as through conventional concerns with innovation, provided the institutions of leverage are carefully constructed.

Description : The last years of Henry VIII''s life, 1539-47, have conventionally been seen as a time when the king persecuted Protestants. This book argues that Henry''s policies were much more ambiguous; that he continued to give support to Protestantism and that many accordingly also remained loyal to him. It also examines why the Protestants eventually adopted a more radical, oppositional stance, and argues that English Protestantism''s eventual identity was determined during these years.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book aims to provide for the first time in the English language a concise but comprehensive overview of the biology and cultivation of the grapevine, accessible to all concerned with viticulture. After a description of the essential features of viticulture, including a concise history from antiquity to modern times, the authors consider the taxonomy of the grapevine and the evolutionary processes that gave rise to the diversity within the Vitaceae. Particular attention is paid to the genera Vitis and Muscadinia, which are considered a reserve of genetic variation for the improvement of grapevines. A description of the vegetative and reproductive anatomy of the grapevine precedes a full discussion of the developmental and environmental physiology of these fascinating and economically important plants. The concluding chapter considers the potential for genetic improvement of grapevines and includes coverage of the problems encountered, and the methods and strategies employed, in breeding for scions and rootstocks. Special reference to the role of plant biotechnology and tissue culture in the genetic improvement of grapevines is also made.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book examines fiction and ethnography as related forms for analysing and exhibiting social life. Focusing on the novels of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry James, and Edith Wharton, the study argues that novels and ethnographies collaborated to produce an unstable but powerful master discourse of ''culture'', a discourse that allowed writers to turn new social energies and fears into particular kinds of authorial expertise. Crossing a range of institutions (anthropology, literature, museums, law) and texts (novels, ethnographies, travel books, social theory), this study allows fiction to take its place in a web of social practices that categorize, display and regulate what Wharton calls ''the customs of the country''.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : In Darwinism''s Struggle for Survival Jean Gayon offers a philosophical interpretation of the history of theoretical Darwinism. He begins by examining the different forms taken by the hypothesis of natural selection in the nineteenth century (Darwin, Wallace, Galton) and the major difficulties that it encountered, particularly with regard to its compatibility with the theory of heredity. He then shows how these difficulties were overcome during the seventy years that followed the publication of Darwin''s Origin of Species, and he concludes by analyzing the major features of the genetic theory of natural selection, as it developed from 1920 to 1960. This rich and wide-ranging study will appeal to philosophers and historians of science and to evolutionary biologists.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Until recently, the diagnosis and assessment of personality disorders had lagged considerably behind that of most other mental disorders. The IPDE is a new instrument that is compatible, through two modules, with both ICD-10 and DSM-IV criteria. In the form of a semistructured clinical interview, it now provides a means of measuring major categories of personality disorders that previously had been ignored. It is also unique in that it seeks to secure reliable and uniform diagnosis that is both internationally and cross-culturally acceptable. Written by leading international authorities, this volume forms an invaluable reference manual to the IPDE instrument and its development. The book''s first section includes an overview of the worldwide field trials of the interview and aspects of epidemiology that affect the current status of diagnosis and assessment research. The second section, detailing the full interview schedule and scoring system for the instrument, will further facilitate its use.

A Text-Book of Roman Law: From Augustus to Justinian

Product : A Text-Book of Roman Law: From Augustus to Justinian
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Roman Law, since its earliest days of the XII Tables, to the Justinian code over one thousand years later, is arguably the most influential body of law ever developed, remaining at the core of European legal systems until the end of the eighteenth century and informing the civil law and (to a lesser extent) the common law to this day. The first edition of Peter Buckland''s classic textbook on the subject was published in 1921. Professor Peter Stein''s revised third edition published in 1963 updated the original so that it reflected Professor Buckland''s own later thoughts on the subject until his death in 1945. This revised edition examines the law of the Empire (or classical law) and also tracks later developments, including the legislation of Justinian. It is primarily concerned with the law but historical developments are also kept in view, so as to give the student the broadest perspective on the subject.

Professor Winroth has now discovered the original version of the Decretum in a version about half as long as the final text, and that invites a reconsideration of the resurgence of law in the twelfth century.

Description : Humanitarian intervention seemed to promise a world in which human rights would be privileged over national interests or imperial ambitions during the 1990s. This book argues that humanitarian intervention had far more exploitative effects and draws on feminist, postcolonial, legal and psychoanalytic theory to provide an innovative reading of the narratives accompanying humanitarian intervention, a field which has received very little critical analysis. It concludes by considering what has been lost in the transference of concerns from humanitarian intervention to the war on terror.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Classifications are central to archaeology. Yet the theoretical literature on the subject, both in archaeology and the philosophy of science, bears very little relationship to what actually occurs in practice. This problem has long interested William Adams, a field archaeologist, and Ernest Adams, a philosopher of science, who describe their book as an ethnography of archaeological classification. It is a study of the various ways in which field archaeologists set about making and using classifications to meet a variety of practical needs. The authors first discuss how humans form concepts. They then describe and analyse in detail a specific example of an archaeological classification, and go on to consider what theoretical generalizations can be derived from the study of actual in-use classifications. Throughout the book, they stress the importance of having a clearly defined purpose and practical procedures when developing and applying classifications.

Description : Death and dying once seemed definitive, public, and appropriate; but the Industrial Revolution, the Great War, and the reenvisioning of reality by scientists and philosophers destabilized cultural norms. In Fictional Death and the Modernist Enterprise Friedman traces the semiotics of death and dying in twentieth-century fiction, history, and culture. He describes how modernist writers either elided rituals of dying, or, rediscovering the body, transformed Victorian aesthetic death into modern dirty death. And he shows how, through postmodern fiction and AIDS narratives, death has once again become cultural currency.

The Ecology of Recently-deglaciated Terrain: A Geoecological Approach to Glacier Forelands

Product : The Ecology of Recently-deglaciated Terrain: A Geoecological Approach to Glacier Forelands
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book provides the first comprehensive review of the available information on the ecology of recently-deglaciated terrain and critically evaluates the methodology currently employed in such studies. The theme developed is that the ecology of these regions can only be fully understood by giving due consideration to the role and interaction of both physical and biological processes in the development of the landscape. By adopting this geoecological approach, the spatial variation and dynamics of vegetation and soils is considered in relation to other aspects of the landscape such as topographic variation, climate, and geomorphic processes. A geoecological model is thus outlined that provides both a framework for interpreting the varied ecological nature of glacier forelands found throughout the world, and also an agenda for future research.

Multivalent Functions

Product : Multivalent Functions
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The class of multivalent functions is an important one in complex analysis. They occur for example in the proof of De Branges'' Theorem, which in 1985 settled the long-standing Bieberbach conjecture. The second edition of Professor Hayman''s celebrated book contains a full and self-contained proof of this result, with a new chapter devoted to it. Another new chapter deals with coefficient differences. The text has been updated in several other ways, with recent theorems of Baernstein and Pommerenke on univalent functions of restricted growth, and an account of the theory of mean p-valent functions. In addition, many of the original proofs have been simplified. Each chapter contains examples and exercises of varying degrees of difficulty designed both to test understanding and illustrate the material.

The Color of the Sky: A Study of Stephen Crane

Product : The Color of the Sky: A Study of Stephen Crane
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : David Halliburton''s book is a richly textured study of the complete writings of Stephen Crane, including Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, The Red Badge of Courage, and the less well-known fiction, newswriting, and poetry. Offering close readings of the works within a broad framework, Halliburton sets out to explore the imaginative world Crane created in his total œuvre of fiction, poetry and reportage. Comparative and interdisciplinary methods, combined with insights from historians such as Toynbee and Hofsteader, enable Halliburton to shed light on a number of issues. These include Crane''s interest in musicality, the importance of his poetry and journalism to his other writings, the phenomenology of his social structures, his mastery of prosody, and the relation of his writings to the ideas of thinkers such as William James, Santayana, Weber and Sartre. This ambitious and comprehensive book sets a standard by which to measure all future interpretations of Crane.

Science and Necessity

Product : Science and Necessity
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book espouses an innovative theory of scientific realism in which due weight is given to mathematics and logic. The authors argue that mathematics can be understood realistically if it is seen to be the study of universals, of properties and relations, of patterns and structures, the kinds of things which can be in several places at once. Taking this kind of scientific platonism as their point of departure, they show how the theory of universals can account for probability, laws of nature, causation, and explanation, and explore the consequences in all these fields. This will be an important book for all philosophers of science, logicians, and metaphysicians, and their graduate students. The readership will also include those outside philosophy interested in the interrelationship of philosophy and science.

Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Jeffrey Richards examines a variety of phenomena connected to the stage, including closet Revolutionary political plays, British drama on American boards, American-authored stage plays, and poetry and fiction by early Republican writers. American theatre is viewed by Richards as a transatlantic hybrid in which British theatrical traditions provide material and templates by which Americans express themselves and their relationship to others. Through intensive analysis of plays, this book confronts matters of political, ethnic, and cultural identity by moving from play text to theatrical context and from historical event to audience demography.

Edward Young:  Night Thoughts

Product : Edward Young: Night Thoughts
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : During the century after its publication in 1742, ''Night Thoughts'' was one of the most popular, widely read and influential poems in the English language. However, there have been no editions of the poem since the middle of the nineteenth century. This edition contains a critical introduction setting the poem in the context of the eighteenth-century sublime. There is a commentary which explains historical and linguistic obscurities, and a history of the poem''s publication. The text is based on the first editions of the separate ''Nights'', and the old spelling has been retained. The editions are collated here, and all substantive variants recorded. Dr Cornford''s critical introduction discusses the conception of the poet''s role; Young''s attitude to the ''imagination'' in the context of contemporary epistemology; eighteenth-century attitudes to death and immortality as expressed in sermons and devotional literature; and the critical reception of the poem in Britain and Europe. This discussion seeks to explain why a poem of Christian consolation, orthodox and ancient in its theology, became a seminal work in a secular cult of sepulchral melancholoy.

From Education to Work: Cross National Perspectives

Product : From Education to Work: Cross National Perspectives
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Structural transformations in the international economy and the restructuring of work have made the transition from education to employment increasingly problematic. School-to-work pathways have become more socially segmented and the risk of underemployment and joblessness have increased for both vocationally and academically educated youth. This edited volume of empirical studies is based on a series of comparable longitudinal research projects that draw on survey and biographical data from certain important players in the international economy: the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and Germany. These studies document that social and gender inequality is a persistent structural feature that restricts the possibilities to take advantage of educational opportunities and career options. Furthermore, this volume shows that different institutional arrangements play a crucial role in distributing transition opportunities in a more equal way. Researchers in psychology, sociology and policy makers in education and training will find this book to be a valuable and current resource.

Product : The Changing Face of Empire: Charles V, Phililp II and Habsburg Authority, 1551-1559
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Using a vast range of primary sources, this substantial and important volume provides a comprehensive analysis of the division and near-collapse of Habsburg authority during the 1550s. The principal episodes of this period (the death of Charles V, the accession of Philip II, and the latter''s marriage to Mary Tudor) are well known in outline, but Dr Rodriguez-Salgado provides much that is new and original, both on the internal history of Spain, and on the highly complex diplomacy of the period. Why did Charles V and Philip I go to war against France, and Papacy and Islam, and how did the multinational empire survive the huge financial demands such wars placed upon it? Spanish relations with England and France are examined in detail, and The Changing Face of Empire does a great deal to illuminate the breakdown in relations with the Netherlands that was to culminate in the Dutch Revolt.

The United Front: The TUC and the Russians 1923-1928

Product : The United Front: The TUC and the Russians 1923-1928
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The book concerns the Soviet effort during the 1920s to make contact with - and if possible revolutionize - the European labour movement, by first establishing a special relationship with the British Trades Union Congress. The ultimate failure of that effort, after the collapse of the general strike in 1926, inspired Trotsky to try one last time to oust Stalin, a confrontation that led to utter collapse of the Trotskyite opposition in 1927-28. The author suggests the failure of this particular ''united front'' effort was a major factor in the sectarianism and isolationism of the Communist movement from 1928 to 1934, and thus had a significant affect on the rise of the Nazi party in Germany.

The Mathematics of Radiative Transfer

Product : The Mathematics of Radiative Transfer
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This tract gives a simple but rigorous treatment of some of the mathematical problems that arise in the theory of the transfer of radiation through the atmosphere of a star. Similar problems occur in the theory of the diffusion of neutrons and in the study of temperature-wave flow in solids; so the solutions found in one theory can often be applied in the others. Dr Busbridge''s starting-point is the equation of transfer. The first section provides the auxiliary mathematics, and the second discusses the Milne equations. Some unsolved and incompletely solved problems are considered in an appendix. The language and notation of astrophysics is used throughout, for brevity and simplicity, but translation into other notations is usually fairly easy. Over the years the subject had grown considerably, and several outstanding problems have been solved, though the total amount of rigorous work is small. This tract will help to clear up confusions which exist and will provide an introduction to some of the more powerful mathematical techniques available.

Defects and Radiation Damage in Metals

Product : Defects and Radiation Damage in Metals
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The study of radiation damage in solids generally has been stimulated by the technological demands of nuclear energy and space research. Professor Thompson''s 1969 book discusses the basic atomic mechanisms which give rise to the main effects induced by radiation in metals, since it is in their relatively simple structures that the fundamental processes can be most easily identified. The first part of the book describes the nature of lattice defects in metal crystals. The presentation leads naturally into the discussion of radiation damage in the second part and recognises the important contribution that the study of irradiated metals has made to our general knowledge of defects. The wide coverage of this book includes developments in our understanding of collision cascades, of the clustering of point defects and the behaviour of impurities induced by irradiation.

Topics in part one include polynomial theory, equations, inequalities, partial fractions, permutations and combinations, the binomial theorem and series and determinants. The ''feel'' of the book may be illustrated by reference to the treatment of partial fractions, which is novel in several ways. A theoretical exposition is given in some detail and varies from standard treatments in leading to a method of calculation that arises directly from it. The book contains many ''drill'' examples, which the author considers essential.

Description : J. Frank Adams was one of the world''s leading topologists. He solved a number of celebrated problems in algebraic topology, a subject in which he initiated many of the most active areas of research. He wrote a large number of papers during the period 1955-1988, and they are characterised by elegant writing and depth of thought. Few of them have been superseded by later work. This selection, in two volumes, brings together all his major research contributions. They are organised by subject matter rather than in strict chronological order. The first contains papers on: the cobar construction, the Adams spectral sequence, higher-order cohomology operations, and the Hopf invariant one problem; applications of K-theory; generalised homology and cohomology theories. The second volume is mainly concerned with Adams'' contributions to: characteristic classes and calculations in K-theory; modules over the Steenrod algebra and their Ext groups; finite H-spaces and compact Lie groups; maps between classifying spaces of compact groups. Every serious student or practitioner of algebraic topology will want to own a copy of these two volumes both as a historical record and as a source of continued reference.
