Nuance Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 60 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 8.0in. x 0.1in.The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. -- Francis Bacon-- The first of two rather enigmatic volumes of fantasy and horror art by D X Stone, this one focusing on the darker side of this talented artist. Over twenty full color images in oil, watercolor, pastel and digital media, as well as b and w works, much of it never before published in print form. The books written content is made up almost entirely of quotes from artists, writers, philosophers and others, mostly related to the subjects of dreams and nightmares. Taken together, the whole creates a sort of poetic narrative on art, the elusive and illusory nature of reality, and the ever-inexplicable nature of the mysterious universe we spring from. Not just an ordinary collection of art, these books provide a fascinating look into the interior of an artistss psyche, and an interesting and stimulating meditation on the big questions of existence itself. ...

Basic Books. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 352 pages. The staggering story of the most influential Chinese political dissident of the Mao era, a devout Christian who was imprisoned, tortured, and executed by the regimeBlood Letters tells the astonishing tale of Lin Zhao, a Chinese poet and journalist arrested by the regime in 1960 and executed eight years later, at the height of the Cultural Revolution. Alone among the victims of Maos dictatorship, she maintained a stubborn and open opposition during the years she was imprisoned. She rooted her dissent in her Christian faith--and expressed it in long, prophetic writings done in her own blood, and at times on her clothes and on cloth torn from her bedsheets. Miraculously, Lin Zhaos prison writings survived, though they have only recently come to light. Drawing on these works and others from the years before her arrest, as well as interviews with friends, family, and classmates, Lian Xi paints an indelible portrait of courage and faith in the face of unrelenting ...

VDM Verlag Dr. Müller. Paperback. New. Paperback. 124 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.Presented is our measurements of a single electronic spin in the gate oxide of submicron-size silicon field effect transistors. Defects near the silicon and silicon dioxide interface have profound effects on the transistor conduction properties. For a submicron transistor, there might be only one isolated trap state that is within a proper tunneling distance regarding to both the coordinate and energy. We have studied the statistics and dynamics of individual defects extensively by random telegraph signal (RTS), the stochastic switching of the channel conductivity due to the trapping of single channel electrons by the defect. We also have, for the first time, studied the spin properties of these individual defects. By investigating the dependence of RTS statistics on a plane magnetic field, we have identified spin states of a single electron on a defect. Using microwave radiation of frequencies ra ...

LAP Lambert Academic Publishing. Paperback. New. Paperback. 124 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.We are approaching the era with blurred boundary between hardware and software: hardware is getting more and more flexibility for fast development and configuration - we are programming hardware; critical software is being built on chip for high performance - we are also coining software. The author of this book try to build such a bridge to import the new high speed computation architecture based on FPGA to the simulation of neutron transport in nuclear reactor. After the most recent Fukushima accident in Japan, there is no doubt for more effort on reactor safety. This book represents first an algorithm to simulate the three-dimensional transport of neutrons, the generators of nuclear fission, inside an arbitary nuclear reactor model, and then demonstrates the methodology of moving the computationally intensive codes into an FPGA chip with 20 times higher performance. We all use software running above ... Read more

Macat Library. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 85 pages. Dimensions: 38.0in. x 30.0in. x 7.5in.John Lewis Gaddis had written four previous books on the Cold War by the time he published We Now Know so the main thrust of his new work was not so much to present new arguments as to re-examine old ones in the light of new evidence that began emerging from behind the Iron Curtain after 1990. In this respect, We Now Know can be seen as an important exercise in evaluation; Gaddis not only undertook to reassess his own positions arguing that this was the only intellectually honest course open to him in such changing circumstances but also took the opportunity to address criticisms of his early works, not least by post-revisionist historians. The straightforwardness and flexibility that Gaddis exhibited in consequence enhanced his books authority. He also deployed interpretative skills to help him revise his methodology and reinterpret key historical arguments, integrating new, comparative histories of the Cold War e ... Read more

Macat Library. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 100 pages. Dimensions: 38.0in. x 30.0in. x 7.5in.Reconstruction is the name given to the period that, beginning shortly before the end of the American Civil War and running until 1877, saw the frustration of federal governments attempts to integrate the newly freed slaves into the American political and economic system. It ended in frustration, disillusionment and also violence, with individual southern states denying rights to freed slaves, preventing them from voting, and largely forcing them back into roles that exploited their labor and prevented them from gaining access to education. For much of the 20th century, the predominant view of the Reconstruction period was that of the Dunning School, which argued that former slaves were unprepared for the responsibilities of voting and holding office, and that it was their incapability of handling such responsibilities and not the racist actions of whites that was largely responsible for the failures of the Reconst ...

Macat Library. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 84 pages. Dimensions: 38.0in. x 30.0in. x 7.5in.John Dowers War Without Mercy is an attempt to resolve the problem of why the United States fought World War II so very differently in the Pacific and European theaters. Specifically, the author sets out to explain why there was such vicious hostility between the US and Japan during the conflict. This was not merely a matter of outrage at Pearl Harbor, and understanding the phenomenon required going beyond the usual strategic, diplomatic and operational records that fuel most histories of war. Dower looked instead for alternate possibilities and found them. His book argues that the viciousness that marked fighting in the Pacific had deep roots in popular culture which created frightening racial stereotypes of the enemy on both sides of the ocean. Dowers focus on low culture proved to be a useful way of generating alternative possibilities to mainstream thinking about US-Japanese relations. The thinking underpinning t ... Read more

Oseaus Xolani Dube

LAP Lambert Academic Publishing. Paperback. New. Paperback. 132 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Knowledge Management (KM) has become an important area of focus in many organizations. This is not surprising given that KM is increasingly associated with organizational success in todays business environment. However, despite the fact that KM is important, KM practitioners are finding hard to implement it and organizations are still reluctant to undertake it. This fear is often attributed to the organization failing to incorporate a knowledge audit in the KM programme. KM gurus agree that the knowledge audit is an essential process in any KM initiative. Knowledge audit will help organizations ensuring that their KM initiatives are informed by real section needs. Because every organization is unique therefore the KM initiatives that each undertake are also unique.

Mulberry Bark. Paperback. New. Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 7.8in. x 5.0in. x 0.5in.I dont know if Im a girl dreaming about being a monster, or a monster dreaming about being a girl.

Callula Xu Poetry

Callula Xu

Trafford. Paperback. New. Paperback. 126 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Nine-year-old Callula Xu is a born storyteller. Her Juvenile Poems, however, are not at all childish. Written in free-verse style, her stories display a surprisingly adult perspective. The poems are not about her own experience, Callula explains, but are in the words of individuals she has tried to imagine. And what an imagination she has, stimulated by her own wide reading. Her characters are sometimes human--contemporary or from mythological realms of old--but also are animals, monsters, even zombies, who speak in the poems. As a result, this is not a childrens book. Adult readers will be surprised, perhaps shocked at times, by the thoughts and actions of these mostly unnamed beings as they recount events of their often troubled lives. Certainly we wish a better future in our own century for this talented young writer. --Virginia Hearn, author of What They Did Right: Reflections on Parents by Their Children (Tyndale and C ...
