Estimation, Control, And The Discrete Kalman Filter: ESTIMATION IN DISCRETE DY

Product : Estimation, Control, And The Discrete Kalman Filter: ESTIMATION IN DISCRETE DY
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This is a one semester text for students in mathematics, engineering, and statistics. Most of the work that has been done on Kalman filter was done outside of the mathematics and statistics communities, and in the spirit of true academic parochialism was, with a few notable exceptions, ignored by them. This text is Catlin''s small effort toward closing that chasm. For mathematics students, the Kalman filtering theorem is a beautiful illustration of Functional Analysis in action; Hilbert spaces being used to solve an extremely important problem in applied mathematics. For statistics students, the Kalman filter is a vivid example of Bayesian statistics in action.

Fingerprints and Other Ridge Skin Impressions

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The field of fingerprinting for personal identification and criminal investigation is progressing at a rapid rate. Numerous research projects are devoted to fingerprint detection techniques and identification issues, and recent debate focuses on the admissibility of fingerprint evidence in US courts. In light of these events, as well as the previous lack of one volume that brings together the scientific and legal aspects of this discipline, the time is ideal for an easily accessible resource that gathers together and analyzes the latest findings and techniques related to fingerprint science.Fingerprints and Other Ridge Skin Impressions features the insight of a recognized team of authorities, including contributors from a key institution for forensic research. Chapters cover all aspects of the subject including the formation of friction ridges on the skin, the deposition of latent prints, the detection and enhancement of such marks, recording of fingerprint evidence, and fingerprint identification itself. Recent advances in statistical interpretation, fingerprint detection techniques, and computer technology are also discussed in detail.This practical techniques manual is an ideal text for practitioners working in the field of fingerprint detection and identification, as well as anyone studying forensic science at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. There is also sufficient background material for legal professionals and police in need of an introduction to the critical subject of fingerprinting.

Drawing on philosophers such as Austin, Wittgenstein, and Quine, this book explores the nature of ordinary language in philosophy.

Using the most recent scholarship and editions of Weber''s writings, Sam Whimster establishes the full range, depth and development of Max Weber''s approach to the social and cultural sciences. This ground-breaking book:locates the central issues in Weber''s writings and relates them to the golden era of social and cultural sciencesargues that Weber remains the major exponent of the classical tradition still relevant todayoffers a new interpretation of the dynamic of Weber¿s career as historian, social-economist, methodologist and sociologist.Weber''s sociology still stands as a successful and valid underwriting of the substantive fields of power, law, rulership, culture, religion, civilizational configurations, and economic sociology. At a time of the turning away from grand theory to empirical policy studies, this book asserts the authority of Weber''s conception and calls for a critical engagement with his legacy in order to understand the dynamics of a globalizing modernity.Thisis an indispensable guide to Weber''s writings and will be an invaluable companion toThe Essential Weber(2004).

The Statecraft Of Consensus Democracies In A Turbulent World: A Comparative Study Of Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands

Product : The Statecraft Of Consensus Democracies In A Turbulent World: A Comparative Study Of Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Drawing on the work of Arend Lijphart, this book focuses on consensus democracies. These democracies entail a complex set of democratic institutional and conventional arrangements and can be regarded as a product of path-dependent development towards a national culture of compromise and bargaining.Taking a multi-dimensional and multi-spatial approach, this book examines the West central European consensus democracies of Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Switzerland, over the past 40 years. Magone examines how these democracies have been transformed by Europeanization thrusts and global turbulence yet are able to maintain political stability. It provides historical context including the different phases of transformation: the golden period (1945-1979); disorganised capitalism (1979-1993); and re-equilibration (1993-). It includes chapters on political culture, government, parliament, the rise of populism and political parties, subnational government, and the political economy and concludes deliberating on the relevance of consensus democracies¿ experiences for the future of European and global governance.Based on original research, this book will be of strong interest to students and scholars of comparative politics, European government, West European politics, the politics of small states in Europe, and those with a particular interest in the politics of Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

Product : Basic Skills Education In Community Colleges: Inside And Outside Of Classrooms
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Nearly two-thirds of students require some form of remediation before taking college-level classes, and community colleges have become increasingly important in providing this education. Unfortunately, relatively few students complete the developmental courses required to make a transition to college-level work. Based on a three-year study of over twenty community colleges,Basic Skills Education in Community Collegesanalyzes developmental education practices, exploring what goes wrong and what goes right, and provides a series of recommendations for improved practice.Including both classroom observations and interviews with administrators, faculty, and students, this valuable book balances critique with examples of innovation. Part One explores the instructional settings of basic skills¿the use of drill and practice and remedial pedagogy in math, reading, writing, and ESL, as well as innovations in colleges that show developmental education need not follow remedial pedagogy. Part Two examines institutional factors shaping basic skills and provides recommendations for improving the quality of basic skills instruction. The research-grounded observations and recommendations inBasic Skills Education in Community Collegesmake this an invaluable resource for scholars, administrators, and faculty aiming to help students progress through developmental education to college-level work and beyond.

Epidemiological Criminology: Theory To Practice

Product : Epidemiological Criminology: Theory To Practice
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Epidemiological criminology is an emerging paradigm which explores the public health outcomes associated with engagement in crime and criminal justice. This book engages with this new theory and practice-based discipline drawing on knowledge from criminology, criminal justice, public health, epidemiology, public policy, and law to illustrate how the merging of epidemiology into the field of criminology allows for the work of both disciplines to be more interdisciplinary, evidence-based, enriched and expansive.This book brings together an innovative group of exemplary researchers and practitioners to discuss applications and provide examples of epidemiological criminology. It is divided into three sections; the first explores the integration of epidemiology and criminology through theory and methods, the second section focuses on special populations in epidemiological criminology research and the role of race, ethnicity, age, gender and space as it plays out in health outcomes among offenders and victims of crime, and the final section explores the role policy and practice plays in worsening and improving the health outcomes among those engaged in the criminal justice system.Epidemiological Criminologyis the first text to bring together, in one source, the existing interdisciplinary work of academics and professionals that merge the fields of criminology and criminal justice to public health and epidemiology. It will be of interest to academics and students in the fields of criminology, epidemiology, and public health, as well as clinical psychologists, law and government policy analysts and those working within the criminal justice system.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Asylum seeking and the global city are two major contemporary subjects of analysis to emerge both in the literature and in public and official discourses on human rights, urban socioeconomic change and national security. Based on extensive, original ethnographic research, this book examines the situation of asylum seekers in Hong Kong and offers a narrative of their experiences related to internal and external borders, the performance of border crossing and asylum politics in the context of the global city.Hong Kong is a city with no comprehensive legislation covering refugee claims and official and public opinion is dominated by the view that the city would be flooded with illegal economic migrants were policy changes to be implemented. This book considers why Hong Kong has become a destination for asylum seekers, how asylum seekers integrate into local and global economic markets and why the illegalization of asylum seekers plays a significant role in the processes of global city formation.This book will be essential reading for academics and students involved in the study of migration; globalization and borders; research methods in criminology; social problems and urban sociology.

As for the Russians, they are lying: a second, even deadlier, secret rests within the hulk of the lost bomber, a secret the Russians are willing to kill to protect. Trapped in a polar wilderness, Smith and his team find themselves fighting a savage war on two fronts--against an enemy they can see and another hiding within their own ranks.

Product : Limbo: Blue-Collar Roots, White-Collar Dreams
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In Limbo, award-winning journalist Alfred Lubrano identifies and describes an overlooked cultural phenomenon: the internal conflict within individuals raised in blue-collar homes, now living white-collar lives. These people often find that the values of the working class are not sufficient guidance to navigate the white-collar world, where unspoken rules reflect primarily upper-class values. Torn between the world they were raised in and the life they aspire too, they hover between worlds, not quite accepted in either. Himself the son of a Brooklyn bricklayer, Lubrano informs his account with personal experience and interviews with other professionals living in limbo. For millions of Americans, these stories will serve as familiar reminders of the struggles of achieving the American Dream.

The Aphrodite of Knidos and Her Successors: A Historical Review of the Female Nude in Greek Art

Product : The Aphrodite of Knidos and Her Successors: A Historical Review of the Female Nude in Greek Art
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Christine Mitchell Havelock''s book takes a much- needed new look at some of the most famous icons of Western art: the nude statues that the Greeks produced to represent Aphrodite. The Aphrodite of Knidos, by master sculptor Praxiteles, is the leading example of this form. Other statues include the Capitoline and Medici Venuses, the Crouching Aphrodite and the Aphrodite of Melos--all of them indebted to Praxiteles.The author analyzes the meaning of the pose of the Aphrodite of Knidos, the significance of her nudity, and her architectural setting. A survey of the statue''s reception and interpretation in Greek, Roman, and modern times offers an entirely new perspective on this major work of art.Among topics examined are Praxiteles'' reported use of his mistress Phryne as his model, the pudica gesture, and the importance of small-scale versions of statues for dating the larger sculptures. The author also considers the function and religious significance of the small statues, and she includes the cultural context offered by the erotic poetry of Propertius and Ovid, two Roman poets who were fascinated by the robing and disrobing of their mistresses.The Aphrodite of Knidos is a highly readable, broad-based volume of interest to anyone familiar with classical art and the ancient world.Christine Mitchell Havelock is Professor Emerita of Art History and Curator of the Classical Art Collection at Vassar College. She has written and lectured widely on Greek art.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The authors have done a commendable and impressive job of addressing a topic of long-lasting and increasing significance in U.S. politics.---F. Chris Garcia, University of New MexicoThis is a path-breaking book that will be read across disciplines beyond political science.---James Jennings, Tufts UniversityOver the past four decades, the United States has experienced the largest influx of immigrants in its history. Not only has the ratio of European to non-European newcomers changed, but recent arrivals are coming from the Asian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, South America, and other regions which have not previously supplied many immigrants to the United States.In this timely study, a team of political scientists examines how the arrival of these newcomers has affected the efforts of long-standing minority groups---Blacks, Latinos, and Asian Pacific Americans---to gain equality through greater political representation and power. The authors predict that, for some time to come, the United States will function as a complex multiracial hierarchy, rather than as a genuine democracy.Ronald Schmidt, Sr. is Professor of Political Science at California State University, Long Beach.Yvette M.

Fairy Tales from Before Fairy Tales: The Medieval Latin Past of Wonderful Lies

Product : Fairy Tales from Before Fairy Tales: The Medieval Latin Past of Wonderful Lies
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : When did fairy tales begin? What qualifies as a fairy tale? Is a true fairy tale oral or literary? Or is a fairy tale determined not by style but by content? To answer these and other questions, Jan M. Ziolkowski not only provides a comprehensive overview of the theoretical debates about fairy tale origins but includes an extensive discussion of the relationship of the fairy tale to both the written and oral sources. Ziolkowski offers interpretations of a sampling of the tales in order to sketch the complex connections that existed in the Middle Ages between oral folktales and their written equivalents, the variety of uses to which the writers applied the stories, and the diverse relationships between the medieval texts and the expressions of the same tales in the classic fairy tale collections of the nineteenth century. In so doing, Ziolkowski explores stories that survive in both versions associated with, on the one hand, such standards of the nineteenth-century fairy tale as the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and Carlo Collodi and, on the other, medieval Latin, demonstrating that the literary fairy tale owes a great debt to the Latin literature of the medieval period. Jan M. Ziolkowski is the Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Medieval Latin at Harvard University.

Citizen Rauh: An American Liberal's Life in Law and Politics

Product : Citizen Rauh: An American Liberal's Life in Law and Politics
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Joe Rauh was the type of lawyer who comes along maybe once in a generation---talented, politically astute, effective, and stubbornly devoted to principles, the type of person who not only could but did make a difference. He deserves a biography that explores not only his persona, but the America in which he lived and worked, and how he made a difference to so many people. Michael Parrish has given us just such a book, an exceedingly fine, well-written story that will make clear to another generation not only who Joe Rauh was, but why we as a nation will always need someone like him.---Melvin I. Urofsky, Professor of Law and Public Policy, Virginia Commonwealth UniversityMichael Parrish has captured the life of this great civil libertarian in splendid fashion. His biography of this energetic New Deal liberal weaves effortlessly between public and private, friend and foe, victory and defeat. With Parrish as a sure guide, Citizen Rauh transports the reader through an American history that begins with Sacco and Vanzetti and ends as he battles CIA skullduggery in the 1980s. This biography should be on your shelf and in your heart.---Nelson Lichtenstein, MacArthur Foundation Professor of History and Director of the Center for the Study of Work, Labor, and Democracy, University of California, Santa BarbaraMichael Parrish has fashioned a biography filled with Rauh''s spirit, achievements, his losses, and above all, the importance of his presence. This is a wonderful account of a giant of late 20th century political and legal affairs.---Stanley Kutler, E. Gordon Fox Professor Emeritus of American Institutions, History, and Law, University of Wisconsin, MadisonThe causes to which Rauh committed his life retain their moral force today. This well-crafted, often powerful, biographical study will appeal to anyone with a serious interest in postwar liberalism.---Daniel Scroop, University of Sheffield Citizen Rauh tells the story of American lawyer Joseph L. Rauh Jr., who kept alive the ideals of New Deal liberalism and broadened those ideals to include a commitment to civil rights. Rauh''s clients included Arthur Miller, Lillian Hellman, A. Philip Randolph, and the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. With good reason Freedom Rider John Lewis once called him the blackest white man I ever knew. No lawyer in the post-1945 era did more to protect the economic interests of working-class Americans than Rauh, who fought for the unions as they struggled for legitimacy and against them when they betrayed their own members. No lawyer stood more courageously against repressive anticommunism during the 1950s or advanced the cause of racial justice more vigorously in the 1960s and 1970s. No lawyer did more to defend the constitutional vision of the Warren Court and resist the efforts of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan to undo its legacy. Throughout his life, Rauh continued to articulate a progressive vision of law and politics, ever confident that his brand of liberalism would become vital once again when the cycle of American politics took another turn. Jacket design by Paula NewcombJacket photograph: Joseph L.

The Age Of Attila: Fifth-century Byzantium And The Barbarians

Product : The Age Of Attila: Fifth-century Byzantium And The Barbarians
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This book describes the tragic and bloody collapse of Roman civilization in the West in the fifth century and the near ruin of the Eastern Roman Empire. The hundred years from the death of Theodosius I to the conquest of Italy by Theodoric the Ostrogoth were years of chaos, havoc, and destruction. In the East we see the confusion of the imperial government, the palace intrigues, and the sinister role of the palace eunuchs—but survival. The events are dramatically described by eyewitnesses to the disasters—the Byzantine historians Priscus, Malchus, Olympiodorus, John of Antioch, and Candidus. The contemporary accounts are translated into English and provided with a running commentary by C. D. Gordon to form a continuous narrative of an age of turmoil—the Age of Attila.David S. Potter has added translations of significant passages not in the original volume. He has also added extensive new notes to place the book in the contemporary study of the ancient world, as well as a new bibliography and a concordance with modern editions. “David Potter’s re-edition, really updating, expanding, reshaping, and refreshing Colin Gordon''s classic Age of Attila is a very welcome development. The Age of Attila, in Potter''s expanded version, provides in English the most important literary sources for the immensely important period of the transition or decline, depending on one''s view, of the Roman empire to the post-Roman kingdoms in the West, and for Roman history in the fifth century CE in general. This decisive century has always been hotly debated, but rising interest in economic history and a new wave of Attila books make this an especially fortuitous moment to have Gordon anew: no historian, no student of the later Roman Empire will be able to live without David Potter''s edition of Gordon''s Age of Attila!”—Susanna Elm, University of California, Berkeley “It has been half a century since C. D. Gordon published this valuable introduction to the fifth century, a narrative reconstituted from the fragmentary but tantalizing sources remaining for the period. David Potter has revitalized this classic work, updating it with reference to the latest critical editions and rewriting its notes to take account of recent scholarship. The book provides an excellent entry point into a world that saw the western Roman Empire crumble, Byzantium rise from its remains, and the barbarian peoples of central and western Eurasia reshape human history.”—Noel Lenski, University of Colorado Boulder

Jean Paton And The Struggle To Reform American Adoption

Product : Jean Paton And The Struggle To Reform American Adoption
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Social Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Jean Paton (1908–2002) fought tirelessly to reform American adoption and to overcome prejudice against adult adoptees and women who give birth out of wedlock. Paton wrote widely and passionately about the adoption experience, corresponded with policymakers as well as individual adoptees, promoted the psychological well-being of adoptees, and facilitated reunions between adoptees and their birth parents. E. Wayne Carp's masterful biography brings to light the accomplishments of this neglected civil-rights pioneer, who paved the way for the explosive emergence of the adoption reform movement in the 1970s. Her unflagging efforts over five decades helped reverse harmful policies, practices, and laws concerning adoption and closed records, struggles that continue to this day.

World Politics Simulations In A Global Information Age

Product : World Politics Simulations In A Global Information Age
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : A comprehensive guide explaining how to create simulations of international relations for the purposes of both teaching and research.Hemda Ben-Yehuda, Luba Levin-Banchik, and Chanan Naveh offer as a model their hallmark “World Politics Simulations Project,” which involves participants representing various states, nonstate actors, and media organizations embroiled in an international political crisis. Following the trajectory of a simulation, the authors describe theory, implementation, and analysis. Starting with a typology of simulations, they present a framework for selecting the most suitable one for a given teaching situation, based on academic setting, goals, costs, and other practical considerations. They then provide step-by-step instructions for creating simulations on cyber platforms, particularly Facebook, complete with schedules, guidelines, sample forms, teaching tips, and student exercises. Throughout the simulation, and especially during the final analysis, they explain how to reinforce learning and foster critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, and other essential skills. The authors conclude with suggestions for using data gathered during a simulation for scholarly research.Instructors in both introductory and advanced courses in political science, international relations, media, history, and area studies—as well as leaders of professional training programs in the civil and military service and media organizations—will find this guide invaluable.

On the Poetry of Galway Kinnell: The Wages of Dying

Product : On the Poetry of Galway Kinnell: The Wages of Dying
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Galway Kinnell is one of the key voices of a rich generation of American poets--those who were born in the 1920s and gained critical recognition in the 1960s. In some ways representative of that group, Kinnell strikes his own extraordinary chord--a union of sensuous detail, rich music, vulnerable passion, personal experience felt through to mythic layers, and a long and brooding meditation on time and morality.This book gathers the best and most representative writing on Kinnell. The material ranges from the caustic to the celebratory; from a chronicle of reviews to essays that describe the shape of a career and a vision; from analyses of individual poems to a reminiscence of the friendship between Kinnell and fellow poet James Wright; from early notices of his first book to several new essays written especially for this volume. What emerges is a full, many-faceted, many-toned consideration of the poet and his work.Contributors include Harold Bloom, Louise Bogan, Joseph Bruchac, James Dickey, Tess Gallagher, Donald Hall, and William Matthews.

Ludic Feminism and After: Postmodernism, Desire, and Labor in Late Capitalism

Product : Ludic Feminism and After: Postmodernism, Desire, and Labor in Late Capitalism
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Following the equal-rights struggles of the 1960s, feminism became involved in the theoretical problems posed by poststructuralism, psychoanalysis, semiotics, queer theory, postcolonialism, and Marxism. After years of debate about whether feminism can or should accommodate these other modes of contemporary thought, Ludic Feminism and After provides a way of making a leap forward.Teresa Ebert rethinks such notions as pleasure, essentialism, performance, labor, class, body, and difference through readings of influential texts by feminists such as Gayatri Spivak, Rigoberta Mench, Donna Haraway, Jane Gallop, Judith Butler, Diana Fuss, and Teresa de Lauretis. She not only engages the theories of Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard, and Baudrillard, but also moves beyond the academic arena to address the backlash phenomenon and the writings of popular critics like Camille Paglia. Ebert argues that the crisis of feminist theory in postmodernity is about the very meaning of politics and the possibility for effective social change.The future of feminism and feminist theory, believes Ebert, lies in reclaiming radical knowledge(s) that have been obscured by what she calls ludic theory: the branch of postmodernism that sees politics primarily as a linguistic and textual practice, and focuses on subverting cultural representations of difference. She argues instead for the possibilities of a resistance postmodernism in feminism: theory grounded in the social struggle over the material differences of labor and access to economic means and resources.Ebert''s provocative and powerful book challenges ludic feminism within the academy, and outlines transformative politics and feminist theory that can address material crises, such as the international trade in young women for prostitution, dowry murders in India, and the genocidal rape in Bosnia. The author seeks to go beyond dominant theories to open a radically new space for an active third wave feminism. Ludic Feminism and After is sure to be influential and controversial.Teresa Ebert is Associate Professor of English, State University of New York at Albany.

Explaining Social Institutions

Product : Explaining Social Institutions
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : How is it that people with different and often conflicting interests can band together, overcome coordination problems, and create stable institutions that regulate the interactions among members of the group? Explaining Social Institutions leads us significantly closer to understanding how such institutions come to be.Much of the work being done under the rubric of new institutionalism focuses on how institutions shape social, economic, and political outcomes. This emphasis on influence has provided students of economics, political science, and political economy with surprisingly little theory to account for the origins of such institutions. Yet without understanding how institutions form and consequently develop influence, much of the other work lacks context. The contributors fill this void by utilizing a variety of perspectives and theoretical approaches. The twin focus of these articles on the origins of institutions and the development of institutional influence yield innovative and suggestive outcomes. Topics range from the framing of the United States Constitution to debate over the Senate at the Federal Convention; from equilibrium and social institutions to democratic stability.Contributors include Randall Calvert, Jon Elster, Avner Greif, Jack Knight, Paul Milgrom, Douglass North, William Riker, Norman Schofield, Itai Sened, and Barry Weingast.Jack Knight is Assistant Professor of Political Science, Washington University, St. Louis. Itai Sened is Assistant Professor of Political Science, Tel Aviv University.

Description : Early French Cookery introduces the general features of the food prepared for wealthy French households at the end of the Middle Ages. The volume presents over 100 recipes, drawn from actual medieval manuscripts, together with preparation instructions. The authors help place these enticing recipes in context through a short survey of medieval dining behavior, and they give practical menu suggestions for preparing simple meals or banquets that incorporate these delightfully tasty dishes.Chapters include an overview of early French culinary traditions, foodstuffs that were used, and methods of preparation. Early French Cookery also discusses the equipment of the kitchens and dining rooms that were used, and characterizes those who prepared the food and those who consumed it.The recipes are set out in a modern format, with quantities given in both metric and standard U.S. measurements.

The Impossible Machine: A Genealogy of South Africa?s Truth and Reconciliation Commission

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Adam Sitze meticulously traces the origins of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission back to two well-established instruments of colonial and imperial governance: the jurisprudence of indemnity and the commission of inquiry. This genealogy provides a fresh, though counterintuitive, understanding of the TRC’s legal, political, and cultural importance. The TRC’s genius, Sitze contends, is not the substitution of “forgiving” restorative justice for “strict” legal justice but rather the innovative adaptation of colonial law, sovereignty, and government. However, this approach also contains a potential liability: if the TRC’s origins are forgotten, the very enterprise intended to overturn the jurisprudence of colonial rule may perpetuate it. In sum, Sitze proposes a provocative new means by which South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission should be understood and evaluated.

The Brannan Plan: Farm Politics And Policy

Product : The Brannan Plan: Farm Politics And Policy
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Prosperous farmers, says Harry Truman, make for a prosperous nation, and when farmers are in trouble, the nation is in trouble. The Brannan Plan—a bid for a prosperous nation—was the boldest, most far-reaching agricultural program in recent American history. Farm policy is the cornerstone of our economy. Brannan''s program to stabilize farm income not by price supports, but by direct federal payments to farmers, was the most hotly disputed proposal for dealing with the farm problem in our time. When it was first put forward in 1949, the Brannan Plan provoked vitriolic political battle, a first-class row in Congress, and a raging national debate. Reo M. Christenson''s book is an appraisal of the Brannan Plan, its economic and political consequences, and its potential value. He examines past farm policy, the power of the farm organizations, and the partisan passions that destroyed the Plan. More broadly, he analyzes the roles of Congress, federal agencies, and political parties in making farm policy, and their responsibilities to the farmer and to the country at large. Despite the defeat of the Plan in 1950, proposals much like that of Secretary Brannan crop up in Congress and elsewhere with a persistence that pays tribute to the hardiness of his vision. In sum, Christenson says, it seems a safe bet that the direct payment-free market system has more of a future than a past on the American farm legislative scene.

Description : The research in The Stability of Metals at Elevated Temperatures was undertaken for the purpose of answering three questions: first, what relation, if any, exists between the results obtained from short-time tensile and long-time creep tests?; second, what are the factors affecting the stability of metals at elevated temperatures?; and third, what mathematical relationship exists between the variables encountered in long-time testing? In regard to the first, it has been concluded that whether or not any relationship exists between these two forms of testing depends entirely upon the temperature range being considered. In regard to the second, it has been concluded that the stability may be increased by increasing the strength of the weakest phase present. That above the equi-cohesive temperature, the amorphous phase, is the weaker, while below, the crystalline phase is the weaker of the two. In regard to the third, mathematical equations have been developed connecting together stress and time for any particular temperature and any particular metal.

The Constitution of Law: Legality in a Time of Emergency

Product : The Constitution of Law: Legality in a Time of Emergency
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Dyzenhaus deals with the urgent question of how governments should respond to emergencies and terrorism by exploring the idea that there is an unwritten constitution of law, exemplified in the common law constitution of Commonwealth countries. He looks mainly to cases decided in the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada to demonstrate that even in the absence of an entrenched bill of rights, the law provides a moral resource that can inform a rule-of-law project capable of responding to situations which place legal and political order under great stress. Those cases are discussed against a backdrop of recent writing and judicial decisions in the United States of America in order to show that the issues are not confined to the Commonwealth. The author argues that the rule-of-law project is one in which judges play an important role, but which also requires the participation of the legislature and the executive.

Product : Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg And The Secret History Of The Vietnam War
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : From Steve Sheinkin, the award-winning author of The Port Chicago 50 and Bomb comes a tense, exciting exploration of what the Times deemed the greatest story of the century: how Daniel Ellsberg transformed from obscure government analyst into the most dangerous man in America, and risked everything to expose the government''s deceit. On June 13, 1971, the front page of the New York Times announced the existence of a 7,000-page collection of documents containing a secret history of the Vietnam War. Known as The Pentagon Papers, these documents had been comissioned by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Chronicling every action the government had taken in the Vietnam War, they revealed a pattern of deception spanning over twenty years and four presidencies, and forever changed the relationship between American citizens and the politicans claiming to represent their interests. A provocative audiobook that interrogates the meanings of patriotism, freedom, and integrity, Most Dangerous further establishes Steve Sheinkin as a leader in children''s nonfiction.

Estimating Risk: A Management Approach

Product : Estimating Risk: A Management Approach
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Andy Garlick''s book explores the role of quantitative techniques in modern risk management. Risk management has grown in importance in most organisations in the last 20 years, but in many remains simply a matter of processing lists of risks and actions. The author argues that this fails to make the most of the techniques available and that organisations can improve their risk decision making by using risk models. His book describes a broad range of modelling techniques, all illustrated by business-relevant examples. The role of the models in decision making is also discussed, with particular emphasis on what the risk premium - the price people charge for accepting risk - is and should be. In order to provide a self contained account the underpinning material from probability and decision theory is also included, so that the book will provide a handy reference guide for all practitioners. The discussion is consistently informal, and the book provides a critical view of the accepted wisdom in risk management. This book will enable managers and their specialist advisors to improve their approach to risk whilst removing the mystique.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause, 2nd Edition

Product : Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause, 2nd Edition
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : What’s really going on in Hashimoto’s? This New York Times Bestseller is the result of three years of research and two years of testing by Dr. Izabella Wentz, a clinical pharmacist who was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2009. She combined emerging research with clinical expertise to identify and remove the triggers that caused her to develop Hashimoto’s.

You may have heard that thyroid medications are the only treatment option for people with Hashimoto''s and hypothyroidism, and that there is no way to halt or reverse the autoimmune process once it starts. 

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: The Root Cause dispels that myth and shows how targeted lifestyle interventions allow the body to rebalance and halt the autoimmune process allowing the thyroid to recover. Hashimoto''s is more than just hypothyroidism. Most patients with Hashimoto''s will present with acid reflux, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, intestinal permeability, food sensitivities, gum disorders and hypoglycemia in addition to the “typical” hypothyroid symptoms such as weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and constipation. The body becomes stuck in a vicious cycle of immune system overload, adrenal insufficiency, gut dysbiosis, impaired digestion, inflammation, and thyroid hormone release abnormalities. This cycle is self-sustaining and will continue causing more and more symptoms until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle apart. The lifestyle interventions discussed in this book aim to dismantle the vicious cycle piece by piece. We start with the simplest modifications, by removing triggers, and follow with repairing the other broken systems to restore equilibrium, allowing the body to rebuild itself. In this updated printing of a book that has sold more than 80,000 copies since 2013, Dr. Wentz shares her DIG-AT-IT approach, a systematic method that helps to identify triggers, as well as a healing protocol that tackles the triggers.

Product : The Undiscovered Mind: How the Human Brain Defies Replication, Medication, and Explanation
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : GRAY MATTER UNDER INVESTIGATION In his acclaimed book The End of Science, John Horgan ignited a firestorm of controversy about the limits of knowledge in a wide range of sciences. Now in The Undiscovered Mind he focuses on the single most important scientific enterprise of all -- the effort to understand the human mind. Horgan takes us inside laboratories, hospitals, and universities to meet neuro-scientists, Freudian analysts, electroshock therapists, behavioral geneticists, evolutionary psychologists, artificial intelligence engineers, and philosophers of consciousness. He looks into the persistent explanatory gap between mind and body that Socrates pondered and shows that it has not been bridged. He investigates what he calls the Humpty Dumpty dilemma, the fact that neuroscientists can break the brain and mind into pieces but cannot put the pieces back together again. He presents evidence that the placebo effect is the primary ingredient of psychotherapy, Prozac, and other treatments for mental disorders. As Horgan shows, the mystery of human consciousness, of why and how we think, remains so impregnable that to expect the attempts of scientific method and technology to penetrate it anytime soon is absurd.

Starting in Paris, Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Delambre would make his way north to Dunkirk, while Pierre-François-André Méchain voyaged south to Barcelona. Their mission was to measure the world, and their findings would help define the meter as one ten-millionth of the distance between the pole and the equator—a standard that would be used “for all people, for all time.” The Measure of All Things is the astonishing tale of one of history’s greatest scientific adventures. Yet behind the public triumph of the metric system lies a secret error, one that is perpetuated in every subsequent definition of the meter. As acclaimed historian and novelist Ken Alder discovered through his research, there were only two people on the planet who knew the full extent of this error: Delambre and Méchain themselves. By turns a science history, detective tale, and human drama, The Measure of All Things describes a quest that succeeded as it failed—and continues to enlighten and inspire to this day.

Description : This is the way we love to eat -- slowly braised, cut-with-a-spoon-tender meat resting in aromatic juices just waiting for the perfect piece of bread to come along and sop it up; a steaming bowl of chowder filled with chunks of fish and potatoes in rich broth laced with the smoky-sweet-salty flavor of bacon; a casserole that''s spent some serious time in the oven as layer upon layer of creamy, soft cheese, pasta, herbs, and meat meld into a delectable whole. And as luck would have it, this is the way celebrated New York City chef Tom Valenti loves to cook. Considered Manhattan''s grandmaster of comfort food, Valenti has made this beloved cooking his trademark. In fact, on any given night, you''ll find him in his wildly successful Upper West Side restaurants Ouest and ''Cesca feeding the world''s A-list -- Bill Clinton, Steven Spielberg, Charlie Rose, Jerry Seinfeld, Judy Collins, Joan Didion. Because, of course, this is the food they love to eat, too. In Tom Valenti''s Soups, Stews, and One-Pot Meals, Valenti and coauthor Andrew Friedman dish up the flavor we''ve come to expect from a New York chef, without any of the fuss. This is food that gets better a day or two after it''s made, food to make on the weekend and savor throughout a busy week, food that is perfect for dinner parties and family celebrations. Here are 125 realistic recipes for the home cook -- most made in one pot -- and all based on the fact that the right ingredients, left alone to cook in a single vessel with virtually no intervention from the cook, steadily build glorious flavor and leave far fewer pots to clean. The book includes Variations and Tomorrow''s Table, tips on ways to embellish a dish by adding vegetables or meats or provide economy by stretching it into another satisfying meal by simply adding another ingredient. Valenti and Friedman embrace what they term cooking in the real world, encouraging home cooks to use canned stocks and beans whenever appropriate. They discuss key ingredients; offer a section on condiments, garnishes, and accompaniments; provide a list of mail-order sources; and recommend cookware (though you won''t need a lot).

Lost Discoveries: The Ancient Roots of Modern Science--from the Babylonians to the Maya

Product : Lost Discoveries: The Ancient Roots of Modern Science--from the Babylonians to the Maya
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Boldly challenging conventional wisdom, acclaimed science writer and Omni magazine cofounder Dick Teresi traces the origins of contemporary science back to their ancient roots in an eye-opening account and landmark work. This innovative history proves once and for all that the roots of modern science were established centuries, and in some instances millennia, before the births of Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton. In this enlightening, entertaining, and important book, Teresi describes many discoveries from all over the non-Western world -- Sumeria, Babylon, Egypt, India, China, Africa, Arab nations, the Americas, and the Pacific islands -- that equaled and often surpassed Greek and European learning in the fields of mathematics, astronomy, cosmology, physics, geology, chemistry, and technology. The first extensive and authoritative multicultural history of science written for a popular audience, Lost Discoveries fills a critical void in our scientific, cultural, and intellectual history and is destined to become a classic in its field.

The Idea Of Music In Victorian Fiction

Product : The Idea Of Music In Victorian Fiction
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The Idea of Music in Victorian Fiction seeks to address fundamental questions about the function, meaning and understanding of music in nineteenth-century culture and society, as mediated through works of fiction. The eleven essays here, written by musicologists and literary scholars, range over a wide selection of works by both canonical writers such as Austen, Benson, Carlyle, Collins, Gaskell, Gissing, Eliot, Hardy, du Maurier and Wilde, and less-well-known figures such as Gertrude Hudson and Elizabeth Sara Sheppard. Each essay explores different strategies for interpreting the idea of music in the Victorian novel. Some focus on the degree to which scenes involving music illuminate what music meant to the writer and contemporary performers and listeners, and signify musical tastes of the time and the reception of particular composers. Other essays in the volume examine aspects of gender, race, sexuality and class that are illuminated by the deployment of music by the novelist. Together with its companion volume, The Figure of Music in Nineteenth-Century British Poetry edited by Phyllis Weliver (Ashgate, 2005), this collection suggests a new network of methodologies for the continuing cultural and social investigation of nineteenth-century music as reflected in that period''s literary output.

Max Reger And Karl Straube: Perspectives On An Organ Performing Tradition

Product : Max Reger And Karl Straube: Perspectives On An Organ Performing Tradition
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Max Reger (1873-1916) is perhaps best-known for his organ music. This quickly assumed a prominent place in the repertory of German organists due in large measure to the efforts of Reger?s contemporary Karl Straube (1873-1950). The personal and collegial relationship between the composer and performer began in 1898 and developed until Reger?s death. By that time, Straube had established himself as an important artist and teacher in Leipzig and the central authority for the interpretation of Reger?s organ music. The Reger-Straube relationship functioned on a number of levels with decisive consequences both for the composition of the music and its interpretation over a period fraught with upheaval on sociopolitical, religious and aesthetic fronts. This book evaluates the significance of the relationship between the composer and organist using primary source materials such as autograph performing manuscripts, reviews, programmes, letters and archival sources from contemporary organ building. The result is a much enhanced understanding of Reger in terms of performance practice and reception history, and a re-examination of Straube and, more broadly, of Leipzig as a musical centre during this period.

Seducing Strangers: How to Get People to Buy What You're Selling (The Little Black Book of Advertising Secrets)

Product : Seducing Strangers: How to Get People to Buy What You're Selling (The Little Black Book of Advertising Secrets)
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Marketing and Sales>Advertising and Promotion
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The author says it best: “This book is for people like you and me. People who go to work and—using words, pictures, music, and stories—are expected to make s**t happen . . . to make the phone lines light up and the in-box fill up. Attract fans, friends, and followers. Make the cash register ring. Win the business. Close the deal. Sell something.” Joshua Weltman knows just how to do that, and teach others how to do it, too. An advertising creative director for more than 25 years and the Mad Men co-producer responsible for Don Draper’s credibility as an advertising genius, Weltman distills everything he knows about the art of persuasion into a playbook?of rules, principles, insights, insider anecdotes, and more, all tailored to the fast-changing life in the information economy. Weltman identifies the four elements of selling—one of which is behind everything from a national television campaign to an email blast. There’s the ad that makes people curious—want to know more? That creates a sense of urgency—limited time offer! That increases market share—why we’re unique, or just better. And the ad that protects margins—thank you for your loyalty. And then Weltman explains how to employ these strategies, including: the six words that win business; the four kinds of stories; what to do if your product sucks; why lying in an ad will never pay off; why information reduces doubt; how to think like a force-multiplier; why different is better than better; why to remove jargon and acronyms and reveal ideas and relationships. Advertising, Joshua Weltman argues, is a toolbox, not a tool, and used right it makes people happy. Seducing Strangers shows you how.“People often ask me questions, or ask my opinions, on or about the world of advertising. My stock response is ‘You know I play a fictional advertising executive, right?’ That’s usually used to cover the ignorance or stupidity of whatever I am about to say next. In the future I will simply refer them to Josh Weltman.” —from the Foreword by Jon Hamm
