By turns brilliant and foolish, self-aware and self-deluding, Emma “leaps from error to error,” writes Margaret Drabble in her incisive Introduction, wreaking comic havoc in the lives of those around her. The mature flowering of Austen’s singular and prolific genius, Emma is the compelling story of a woman seeking her true nature and finding true love in the process.With an Introduction by Margaret Drabbleand an Afterword by Sabrina Jeffries

Persuasion

Product : Persuasion
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Featuring one of her most likeable characters, this sparkling love story set in a seaside resort is Jane Austen’s final finished work.Since Anne Elliot eight years ago rejected the marriage proposal of Captain Wentworth, a penniless naval officer, she has resigned herself to a quiet life at home, tending to the imagined needs of her spoiled sisters and vain father (Austen''s brilliant, utterly conceited creation, Sir Walter Elliot). But when Captain Wentworth reappears in their midst, having made his fortune at sea, Anne must ask herself whether she made the right decision—or allowed herself to be persuaded against her heart. Jane Austen''s last completed novel and her most optimistic and romantic work, Persuasion gives full scope to Austen''s artistic powers, blending sharp wit and warm sympathy, stylistic brilliance and matchless insight.  As Margaret Drabble describes in her introduction, it is a story of perseverance and patience and delayed romance, affirming the lasting power of love and the rejuvenating power of hope.With an Introduction by Margaret Drabbleand an Afterword by Diane Johnson

Northanger Abbey

Product : Northanger Abbey
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Jane Austen''s brilliant satire of the gothic novel.The most sprightly and satirical of Austen''s novels, Northanger Abbey was written when the author was herself in her early twenties, and takes for its heroine seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland, a spirited young woman preoccupied with the pleasures of dressing, dancing, and reading sensational novels. But when she visits Northanger Abbey, the ancestral home of handsome Henry Tilney, Catherine''s taste in books comes back to haunt her. The rambling house full of locked doors and the family''s mysterious history give rise to delightfully dreadful suspicions, and finally only Catherine''s sweet nature and good humor triumph over her susceptibility. A sly commentary on the power of literature as well as a cautionary tale about the perils of naïveté, Northanger Abbey is a fresh and funny tale of one young woman receiving, as Margaret Drabble reveals in her illuminating introduction, intensive instruction in the ways of the world.With an Introduction by Margaret Drabbleand an Afterword by Stephanie Laurens

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The classic translation of the Koran by a convert to Islam In 1930, Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall, a Western Islamic scholar and convert to Islam, published this English translation of the Koran, the central religious text of Islam, which the Times Literary Supplement lauded as “a great literary achievement.”The aim of this work is to present to American readers what Muslims the world over hold to be the meaning of the words of the Koran, and the nature of that Book, accurately and concisely, with a view to the requirements of English-speaking Muslims. The first English translation of the Koran by an Englishman who is a Muslim, the Book is here rendered almost literally, and every effort has been made to choose befitting language.   Regarded by Muslims as God’s actual words revealed to the prophet Mohammed, the Koran remains the supreme authority of the Islamic tradition. Comprising laws, moral precepts, and narratives, its timeless texts are the inspiration and guide of millions of Muslims. With this remarkably readable and scholarly translation, Pickthall introduces the sacred scriptures of the Koran to Western readers—and provides invaluable and fascinating insight into one of the world’s great religions.

Description : Neil Simon’s inimitable play about the trials and tribulations that test family ties – winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for DramaWhat happens to children in the absence of love? That is the question that lies at the heart of this funny and heartrending play by one of America''s most acclaimed and beloved playwrights. Debuting at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 1990, Lost in Yonkers went on to win four Tony Awards, including Best Play, as well as the Pulitzer Prize, and tells the moving drama about the cruelties and painful memories that scar a family.It is New York, 1942. After the death of their mother, two young brothers are sent to stay with their formidable grandmother for the longest ten months of their lives. Grandmother Kurnitz is a one-woman German front—a refugee and a widow who has steeled her heart against the world. Her coldness and intolerance have crippled her own children: the boys'' father has no self-esteem . . . their Aunt Gert has an embarrassing speech impediment . . . their Uncle Louie is a small-time gangster . . . and their Aunt Bella has the mentality of a child. But it is Bella''s hunger for affection and her refusal to be denied love that saves the boys—and that leads to an unforgettable, wrenching confrontation with her mother. Filled with laughter, tears, and insight, Lost in Yonkers is yet another heartwarming testament to Neil Simon''s talent.

Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Is your investment in that new Internet stock a sign of stock market savvy or an act of peculiarly American speculative folly? How has the psychology of investing changed--and not changed--over the last five hundred years? Edward Chancellor examines the nature of speculation--from medieval Europe to the Tulip mania of the 1630s to today''s Internet stock craze. A contributing writer to The Financial Times and The Economist, looks at both the psychological and economic forces that drive people to bet their money in markets; how markets are made, unmade, and manipulated; and who wins when speculation runs rampant. Drawing colorfully on the words of such speculators as Sir Isaac Newton, Daniel Defoe, Ivan Boesky, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, Devil Take the Hindmost is part history, part social science, and purely illuminating: an erudite and hugely entertaining book that is more timely today than ever before.

But the world is spinning fast for Agnes—especially considering that her lover wants her to become a sexual animal and that her family''s far-flung fortune is beyond her control. The members of the Browne family split up to make it in the world on their own until a tragedy brings the brood back together again—and love keeps them that way forever.

Pushed too far by a photo depicting a plate of figs placed under a table, actor and Second City-alum Molly Erdman created Gary and Elaine, a well-heeled and deeply superficial couple living happily amongst abundantly pillowed chairs, giant abacuses, and decorative fruit. Inspired by Erdman’s popular blog Catalog Living, Decorating Takes (Wicker) Balls takes home décor catalog photos and sends them up with wickedly funny captions mockumenting Gary and Elaine, their lives, and their absurdly over-decorated rooms. Praise for www.catalogliving.net:“‘Catalog Living’” taps into thoughts many have had … about how things are sold to us.”—Chicago TribuneHilarious.—TheFrisky.comLaugh-out-loud.—Country Living

Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power

Product : Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : By 1991, following the disintegration first of the Soviet bloc and then of the Soviet Union itself, the United States was left standing tall as the only global super-power. The 21st century seemed destined to be yet another American century. But that optimism did not last long as the stock market bubble and the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency, as well as the financial catastrophe of 2008 jolted America – and much of the West – into a sudden recognition of its systemic vulnerability to unregulated greed. InStrategic Vision, esteemed author and former National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski argues that to quell mounting anxieties about the growing capacity for Eastern economic and technological innovation, America must define and pursue a long-term geopolitical vision. Only in this way will it become more strategically deliberate and historically enlightened in its global engagement with the new East. A tactical blueprint,Strategic Visionargues that without an America that is economically vital, socially appealing, responsibly powerful, and capable of sustaining an intelligent foreign engagement, the geopolitical prospects for the West could become increasingly grave.

Einstein's Dice And Schrödinger's Cat: How Two Great Minds Battled Quantum Randomness To Create A Unified

Product : Einstein's Dice And Schrödinger's Cat: How Two Great Minds Battled Quantum Randomness To Create A Unified
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : A fascinating and thought-provoking story, one that sheds light on the origins of... the current challenging situation in physics.--Wall Street JournalWhen the fuzzy indeterminacy of quantum mechanics overthrew the orderly world of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Erwin Schr?dinger were at the forefront of the revolution. Neither man was ever satisfied with the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, however, and both rebelled against what they considered the most preposterous aspect of quantum mechanics: its randomness. Einstein famously quipped that God does not play dice with the universe, and Schr?dinger constructed his famous fable of a cat that was neither alive nor dead not to explain quantum mechanics but to highlight the apparent absurdity of a theory gone wrong. But these two giants did more than just criticize: they fought back, seeking a Theory of Everything that would make the universe seem sensible again.InEinstein''s Dice and Schr?dinger''s Cat, physicist Paul Halpern tells the little-known story of how Einstein and Schr?dinger searched, first as collaborators and then as competitors, for a theory that transcended quantum weirdness. This story of their quest-which ultimately failed-provides readers with new insights into the history of physics and the lives and work of two scientists whose obsessions drove its progress.Today, much of modern physics remains focused on the search for a Theory of Everything. As Halpern explains, the recent discovery of the Higgs Boson makes the Standard Model-the closest thing we have to a unified theory- nearly complete. And while Einstein and Schr?dinger failed in their attempt to explain everything in the cosmos through pure geometry, the development of string theory has, in its own quantum way, brought this idea back into vogue. As in so many things, even when they were wrong, Einstein and Schr?dinger couldn''t help but get a great deal right.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : There is a growing recognition from academia, government, the private sectors, and the non-governmental sectors that integrated thinking and problem-solving across disciplinary boundaries is required to effectively address societal impacts issues in meteorology and hydrology. Within the weather and climate arena many early career physical and social scientists and engineers seek to learn about concepts, tools, questions, and policies related to more than one discipline but most academic departments, especially in meteorology and hydrology, are too narrow to allow much leeway for electives outside of their narrowly defined discipline.   Weather and Society: Integrating Social Science provides comprehensive coverage of a new evolving problem-solving set of approaches to weather and climate issues that successfully integrates social science concepts and methodologies into weather and climate research and practice.This text has developed from the work undertaken through the WAS*IS movement (Weather and Society- Integrated Studies group) Designed to meet the growing demand from National Weather Service employees, international graduate students, hydrologists and other parties interested in understanding the societal impacts that can enhance their work as practitioners or researchers, this book provides the first interdisciplinary approach to the subject of weather, climate and society.   Dr Gruntfest is the director of a new program at the University of Oklahoma called SSWIM (Social Science Woven into Meteorology). Increasingly she receives inquiries from National Weather Service employees, international and domestic potential graduate students, hydrologists, and others who recognize that some understanding of social science and societal impacts can enhance their work as practitioners, researchers or students. They also realize that it is difficult to find reference materials or courses to meet their need within the traditional university departments of meteorology, atmospheric science, hydrology, or even physical geography.

Product : How To Identify Prints 2e
Category : Books>Home and Garden
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Is a particular print a woodcut, an etching, or a lithograph? Is it an original stipple engraving or a photogravure reproduction? Is the color printed or added by hand? Arranged in self-contained sections that can be consulted individually or as part of a larger research operation, this book helps identify accurately any printed image. Included are all the manual methods and also the mechanical processes that constitute the vast majority of printed images around us. In all, some ninety different techniques are described, both monochrome and color. Essential aspects of printing history and the printmaking craft receive full coverage, and examples are given of the features that reveal the type of print, such as varieties of line and tone. Of particular interest are the many illustrations of enlarged details showing the different appearance of various techniques under strong magnification. The one great change during the past twenty years has been the high-quality inkjet and laser prints that are now part of everyday life. How can one tell whether an attractive image is valuable in its own right or merely an appealing reproduction? As cheap printing becomes more sophisticated, it inevitably becomes harder to identify correctly an image of this kind. Bamber Gascoigne''s new observations in this area, added for this revised edition, will prove invaluable. 275 illustrations, 40 in color.

Martin Creed: Works

Product : Martin Creed: Works
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Renowned for his straightforward approach to making art and his deft economy of means, Martin Creed has produced sculptures, installations, drawings, films, performances, music, and text, each of which has found its inspiration in the objects and activities of everyday life. This extensive volume documents some 800 works produced over twenty years and selected by the artist himself. Always in search of the essential nature of things, Creed uses the simplest materials to create a world in which reality appears transformed by conceptual rules, as well as by the unexpected breaking of those rules. His work is simultaneously subtle and spectacular, austere, and playful—whether it be a sheet of paper crumpled into a ball, a protrusion from the wall, a door opening and closing, the lights going on and off, or a soundtrack inside a moving elevator. Conceived and designed in close collaboration with the artist, the book features a foreword by the artist and accompanying texts by Germaine Greer, Colm Toibin, Barry Humphries, and others, supplemented by an exhibition history, bibliography, and biography.

Places Of The Mind: British Landscape Drawings And Watercolors 1850-1950

Product : Places Of The Mind: British Landscape Drawings And Watercolors 1850-1950
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Places of the Mind focuses on landscape drawing in the Victorian and Modern age, challenging the perception that the best British watercolors were produced between 1750 and 1850. Drawing on the British Museum’s impressive collection, this book demonstrates the way in which artists of the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries drew on the tradition of renowned landscape artists Constable and Turner but developed and extended the genre, focusing on the changing nature of the British countryside during the Industrial Revolution and two world wars. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, the book includes works by Victorian artists Sir Edward John Poynter and John Singer Sargent, and by many well-known twentieth-century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, and Henry Moore, some of which have never previously been published.

Digital Landscape Architecture Now

Product : Digital Landscape Architecture Now
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Despite its importance to place-making, urban planning, and the environment, landscape design has often played an inferior role to architecture. Typically, as little as three percent of a project’s construction budget is allocated to the space that surrounds a building, but that is changing. A greater desire to blend buildings into their contexts, ecological considerations, legislation, and new definitions of “scaping” have opened up exciting possibilities. Coinciding with heightened social sensitivities, advances in material application, data-driven mapping techniques, and digital technologies and construction methods, landscape designers are producing a new wave of work around the world, reshaping gardens, public squares, leisure areas, and industrial parks. Among the practices included in this survey are designers who have bridged modernism with newer forms (Emergent, West 8); architects whose work fuses with the earth’s contours (Zaha Hadid, MVRDV); and a generation of designers only just emerging from universities. Nadia Amoroso is Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Toronto and has lectured at Harvard and Cornell universities.
