Why publish this text? And so late? We have just evoked Foucault s reasons for not doing so in 1964. The readers who occasionally consulted the typed manuscript deposited-like all theses-and accessible, hence public, in the Bibliotheque de la Sorbonne (classmark W 1961 (11) 4°) expressed their surprise at its nonpublication. For Foucault, then, it was an occasion to bemoan the lack of literary agents in France.
As I write the opening words to this book on culture, I’m listening to Bosco on my CD player, with a book about the history of the Nantucket whalers to one side and a copy of Gilroy’s fabulous text, The Black Atlantic on the other. In the long history of the Atlantic and beyond, these peoples, arts and work are set in the context of slavery, the movement and settlement of Europeans and the colonisation of native American Indian lands, and the diaspora of peoples of African descent across a huge geography. A movement of women, men and children, ideas, arts and influences. A movement of cultures.
Cultural ecology is one of the two major subdivisions of human ecology, the other being human biological ecology.We felt that the books available for a class in cultural ecology focused either too heavily on general ecology, or too much on human biological ecology, or not enough on cultural ecology. Thus, we faced a “Goldilocks” dilemma: none of the usual text books were “just right” for our introductory classes. So we decided to create a new book. We begin with the assumption that the student has no prior knowledge of anthropology or ecology and try to build an understanding from the ground up.
Books in the series emphasize established and emergent areas of science includingmolecular, membrane, and mathematical biophysics; Photosynthetic energy harvesting and conversion; Information processing; Physical principles of genetics; Sensory communications; Automata networks, neural networks, and cellular automata. Equally important will be coverage of applied aspects of biological and medical physics and biomedical engineering such as molecular electronic components and devices, biosensors, medicine, imaging, physical principles of renewable energy production, advanced prostheses, and environmental control and engineering.
Water touches every aspect of human existence on planet earth. While this notion may be regarded as a triviality, it nevertheless has highly complex consequences. Water as a georesource is subject to many pressures due to its multiple functions that go far beyond its role as the fundamental basis of organic life. For instance, antagonistic social, economic and ecological demands meet to form the “water-energy- food” nexus. Rising population numbers, changing lifestyles and climate change have substantial impacts on water resources and aquatic ecosystems.
Each chapter in this book contains a brief introduction to describe the topic that is covered. Also, an exercise section is included in each chapter. Because the book is self-contained, the book should be of interest to graduate students and mathematicians interested in learning fundamental theorems about the theory of Lipschitzian and non-Lipschitzian mappings and ﬁxed points.
The Industrial Electronics Handbook: Control and Mechatronics by Bogdan M Wilamowski – J. David Irwin. The editors have gone to great lengths to ensure that this handbook is as current and up to date as possible. Thus, this book closely follows the current research and trends in applications that can be found in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics. This journal is not only one of the largest engineering publications of its type in the world but also one of the most respected. In all technical categories in which this journal is evaluated, its worldwide ranking is either number 1 or number 2. As a result, we believe that this...

New trends and developments in automotive industry, Edited by Marcello Chiaberge - InTech 2011. The automotive industry is experiencing a considerable “stress period”, which can lead to important changes in the whole industry. Many aspects contribute to this situa- tion, starting from the global recession (unemployment rates, slowing growth, etc.) to credit meltdown (dependency of car sales on credit, OEM refinancing, etc.) and finish- ing with globalization aspects (global sourcing, foreign investments, etc.) and “green challenges” (both for the industry and the final products).
