China: Fragile Superpower

Once a sleeping giant, China today is the world's fastest growing economy--the leading manufacturer of cell phones, laptop computers, and digital cameras--a dramatic turn-around that alarms many Westerners. But in China: Fragile Superpower, Susan L. Shirk opens up the black box of Chinese politics and finds that the real danger lies elsewhere--not in China's astonishing growth, but in the deep insecurity of its leaders. China's leaders face a troubling paradox: the more developed and prosperous the country becomes, the more insecure and threatened they feel. Shirk, a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State responsible for China, knows many of today's Chinese rulers personally and has studied them for three decades. She offers invaluable insight into how they think--and what they fear. In this revealing book, readers see the world through the eyes of men like President Hu Jintao and former President Jiang Zemin. We discover a fragile communist regime desperate to survive in a society turned upside down by miraculous economic growth and a stunning new openness to the greater world. Indeed, ever since the 1989 pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square and the fall of communism in the Soviet Union, Chinese leaders have been afraid of its own citizens, and this fear motivates many of their decisions when dealing with the U.S. and other nations. In particular, the fervent nationalism of the Chinese people, combined with their passionate resentment of Japan and attachment to Taiwan, have made relations with this country a minefield. The paperback edition features a new preface by the author.

Becoming a Woman in the Age of Letters

Over the course of the eighteenth century in France, increasing numbers of women, from the wives and daughters of artisans and merchants to countesses and queens, became writers-not authors, and not mere signers of names, but writers of letters. Taking as her inspiration a portrait of an unknown woman writing a letter to her children by French painter Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, Dena Goodman challenges the deep-seated association of women with love letters and proposes a counternarrative of young women struggling with the challenges of the modern world through the mediation of writing. In Becoming a Woman in the Age of Letters, Goodman enters the lives and world of these women, drawing on their letters, the cultural history of language and education, and the material culture of letter writing itself: inkstands, desks, and writing paper. Goodman follows the lives of elite women from childhood through their education in traditional convents and modern private schools and into the shops and interior spaces in which epistolary furnishings and furniture were made for, sold to, and used by women who took pen in hand. Stationers set up fashionable shops, merchants developed lines of small writing desks, and the furnishings and floor plans of homes changed to accommodate women's needs. It was as writers and consumers that women entered not only shops but also the modern world that was taking shape in Paris and other cities. Although many women, from major novelists, painters, and educators to schoolgirls and their mothers as well as Parisian tourists and other shoppers, come to life in this book, Goodman focuses on four bodies of epistolary work by little-known women: the letters of Genevieve de Malboissière, Manon Phlipon, Catherine de Saint-Pierre, and Sophie Silvestre. These letters allow Goodman to explore how particular girls of different social positions came to womanhood through letter writing. She shows how letter writing expanded women's horizons even as it deepened their ability to reflect on themselves. The analysis of more than one hundred illustrations-from paintings by major Dutch and French artists to inkstands and writing desks, stationers' trade cards, and manuscript letters on decorated paper-is integral to Goodman's argument.

Multilinear Functions Of Direction And Their Uses In Differential Geometry

MULTILINEAR FUNCTIONS OF DIRECTION AND THEIR USES IN DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY BY ERIC HAROLD NEVILLE LATE FELLOW OF TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS IN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, READING CAMBRIDGE AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS 1921 PREFACE THE distinctive feature of this work is that the functions dis cussed are primarily not functions of a single variable direction but functions of several independent directions. Functions of a single direction emerge when the directions originally independent become related, and a large number of elementary theorems of differential geometry express in different terms a few properties of a few simple functions since one of the objects of the essay is to emphasise the coordinating power of the theory, the presence of many results with which every reader will be thoroughly familiar calls for no apology. In the applications to the geometry of a single surface two functions thought to be new are described. The first, studied in Section 4, depends on two tangential directions, reduces to normal curvature when these directions coincide, and is called here bilinear curvature. I became acquainted with this function in 1911 and used it in lectures early in 1914. The second, the subject of Section 6, depends on three directions, and reduces to the cubic function as sociated with the name of Laguerre the function is symmetrical, and because the equations of Codazzi can be read as asserting its symmetry I have called the general function the Codazzi function. The theory of multilinear functions does not merely coordinate. It affords simple proofs of the relations between the cubic functions of Laguerre and Darboux 6 231, 6 234 and of formulae 7 242, 7 351, I 7 352 for the twist of a family of surfaces, and it leads naturally to expressions 7 241 for the rates of change of the two principal curvatures of a variable member of a family of surfaces at the current point of an orthogonal trajectory of the family, expres sions that are interesting because their existence was deduced by Forsyth in 1903 from an enumeration of invariants. E. H. N. June, 1920. NOTE For the sake of brevity, the space considered is real, but the restriction operates only to the same extent as in other branches of differential geometry. If it is removed, the intrinsic distinction between the positive square root and the negative square root of a given uniform function has to be replaced by a more artificial distinction based on a dissection that is to some extent arbitrary. And there is always a possibility that results need modification if isotropic lines or planes are involved as a rule, nul vectors are admissible as arguments but nul directions are not.

The Institutional Presidency

When Franklin Roosevelt decided his administration needed a large executive staff, he instituted dramatic and lasting changes in the federal bureaucracy and in the very nature of the presidency. Today, no president can govern without an enormous White House staff. Yet analysts have disagreed about whether the key to a president's success lies in his ability to understand and adapt to the constraints of this bureaucracy or in his ability to control and even transform it to suit his needs. In The Institutional Presidency John Burke argues that both skills are crucial. Burke examines how the White House staff system-larger and more powerful than ever-interacts with a particular president's management ability and style. Beginning with the institutional presidency that emerged during the Roosevelt administration, this new edition includes a revised chapter on the Bush administration and a new chapter on Bill Clinton.

Modeling of Steelmaking Processes

From the prediction of complex weather patterns to the design of swimsuits, modeling has, over the years, quietly but steadily become an essential part of almost every field and industry-and steelmaking is no exception. Factors such as visual opacity, high operating temperature, and the relatively large size of industrial reactors often preclude direct experimental observation in steel manufacturing. Therefore the industry is overwhelmingly dependent on modeling to quickly and cost-effectively provide insight into analysis, design, optimization, and control of processing. However, few, if any, books offer the adequate coverage of modeling. Addresses Fundamental Principles of Physical and Mathematical Modeling in Steelmaking Processes Modeling of Steelmaking Processes meets that ever-present demand and provides a solid knowledge base on which to build. With content designed to serve professionals and students, this book starts with an overview of steelmaking and develops into a focused description of underlying scientific fundamentals and applications.This powerful learning tool: * Presents an overview of steelmaking, the relevance of modeling and measurements, the evolution of steelmaking, and modern technology * Discusses emerging issues, such as environmental emissions, recycling, and product development and quality * Reviews computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software * Analyzes mechanistic, AI-based, and macroscopic models, to provide a holistic view of steelmaking process modeling * Provides useful questions and problems, as well as a practice session on modeling, to reinforce understanding Developed as a self-tutorial, this text explores thermodynamic principles, analysis of metallurgical kinetics and transport phenomena, and key numerical methods, helping readers easily navigate a generally complex subject.

How to Select the Right Centrifugal Pump: A Brief Survey of Centrifugal Pump Selection Best Practices

Choosing a centrifugal pump from the countless options available can be daunting, but someone has to make the decision. Many factors -such as the required flow, differential pressure, suction conditions, etc.- must be weighed against the capital costs and cost of energy for the pumps considered. To determine the right pump, you must consider the overall cost of ownership, which includes capital cost, operating costs, and maintenance cost. What good is a low cost pump if it is inefficient or if is costly to maintain? The selection methodology offered in this book focuses mainly on hydraulic design considerations, but it also touches on mechanical design details. Analyzing basic pump hydraulic parameters allows you to quickly determine if a centrifugal pump makes sense for your particular application. If you do decide a centrifugal pump will work for your application, then you need to be able to evaluate the various bids returned by pump manufacturers. A complete chapter is devoted to tabulating quotes from pump manufacturers in order to properly evaluate their bids and select the best overall option.

The Paleoanthropology and Archaeology of Big-Game Hunting

Since its inception, paleoanthropology has been closely wedded to the idea that big-game hunting by our hominin ancestors arose, first and foremost, as a means for acquiring energy and vital nutrients. This assumption has rarely been questioned, and seems intuitively obvious-meat is a nutrient-rich food with the ideal array of amino acids, and big animals provide meat in large, convenient packages. Through new research, the author of this volume provides a strong argument that the primary goals of big-game hunting were actually social and political-increasing hunter's prestige and standing-and that the nutritional component was just an added bonus. Through a comprehensive, interdisciplinary research approach, the author examines the historical and current perceptions of protein as an important nutrient source, the biological impact of a high-protein diet and the evidence of this in the archaeological record, and provides a compelling reexamination of this long-held conclusion. This volume will be of interest to researchers in Archaeology, Evolutionary Biology, and Paleoanthropology, particularly those studying diet and nutrition.

Infertility Hurts! You are Not Alone

To say I am depressed would be an understatement. I have grown to despise diaper commercials. Not to mention Christmas commercials and family movies. I am constantly reminded of the fact that I do not have kids. If one more person asks me why we don't have children I might scream. I'm sorry, you will have to excuse me. You see, I chose to write this book through my pain. I haven't gotten my miracle yet. Notice that I said yet. Please pray that my miracle will come and I will pray for you too. God can heal the strangest situation. Believe me. My situation is strange! Joy Bennett-Thomas is a full time student studying in the field of early childhood and elementary education.

Life and Process: Towards a New Biophilosophy (Process Thought)

The Cartesian metaphysical background of most contemporary bio-scientists limits their ability to understand the uniqueness of biological processes. The authors of this volume explore the viability of process ontology for increasing our understanding of core concepts of biology such as organism, evolution, and teleology. The book presents a new philosophical approach to several dimensions of the phenomenon of life.

Gendered Pasts: Historical Essays in Femininity and Masculinity in Canada (Canadian Social History)

It is commonplace today to suggest that gender is socially constructed, that the roles women and men fulfil in their daily lives have been created and defined for them by society and social institutions, and by the culture and various subcultures. Yet how have men and women negotiated and navigated the gender roles that have been thrust upon them? Gendered Pasts, a collection of eleven engaging essays, seeks answers to this question in a wide-ranging exploration of specific gendered dimensions of 19th- and 20th-century Canadian history. Topics covered include: the use of gender in the highly charged political discourse of Upper Canada in the 1820s and 1830s: female vagrancy in Montreal in the early 19th century: church discipline in regard to gambling, drinking, and sex in Ontario during the first part of the 19th century: the impact of class and race on sex crimes in British Columbia and Ontario: the shifting effects of Anglo contact over more than a century on the women and men of a BC Native community: the curiously gendered desires--from across North America--for orphans of the 1917 Halifax explosion: the moral regulation of the Mothers' Allowance in Ontario: the role of the miner's wife in a northern community: the portrayal of gay men in an urban tabloid of the forties and fifties: the sharply defined role that nurses from Nova Scotia to BC were expected to meet for most of this century: and the effects of gender in two strikes in the Toronto construction trade during the 1960s. The editors' introduction explores the sometimes controversial evolution of gender history as it relates to women's history and other dimensions of social history--labour history, the history of class and of race, and analyses of masculinity.  

Gothic Dragon

Sometimes you can make your dreams a reality. Stuck in an uninteresting job and settled in a safe but vaguely unsatisfying relationship, the only bright spot in Esther's life is her writing. She's fascinated by colorful life of her ancestor Margaret Marsden, a nineteenth-century Gothic romance novelist. A woman who mysteriously disappeared without a trace. A weekend away turns into a hunt for clues when Esther stumbles across Margaret's "lost" novel, The Prince of Costanzo. Though desperate to read it, every time Esther opens the book, she falls asleep-and headlong into amazingly vivid dreams about Costanzo. But in this dream world where war, magic and poisoning are commonplace, nothing is as it seems. Least of all the supposed villain of the novel, the enigmatic sorcerer Prince Drago. She finds herself kidnapped to his castle and subjected to a seductive interrogation that curls her toes. As their feelings for each other grow more powerful, she begins to wonder.is he the real villain, or a hero who only wants to save his kingdom? All she knows is that now that she's had a taste of Costanzo-and Drago-her real life troubles seem insignificant. Until they come crashing around her, threatening to cut her off from the man she loves. Forever. Warning: As well as explicit and delicious sex, this book contains the secret of ultimate escapism which could be highly dangerous in the wrong hands. The reader experiments at her/his own risk.

Membrane Protein Structure: Experimental Approaches (Methods in Physiology, Vol 1)

Studies of receptors, ion channels, and other membrane proteins require a solid understanding of the structural principles of these important biomolecules. Membrane protein structure is, however, a very challenging field. The structures of only three types of transmembrane proteins have been determined to moderate or high resolution during the last two decades, a period during which the amino acid sequences of hundreds, if not thousands, of membrane proteins have been reported. As a result, the creation of structural models to serve as guides for studies of receptors, channels, and other membrane proteins has become crucially important. This book has been assembled in order to share the experiences and findings of expert researchers in protein structure and structure-prediction methods as well as membrane biophysics and lipid physical chemistry, whose work establishes the basis for the development of suitable model structures. The reviews presented here emphasize fundamental ideas and provide an entry to the diverse and complex literature. The four major sections deal with the general nature of the membrane protein structure problem, biochemical and molecular biological approaches to protein topology, direct structural methods, and model and physicochemical approaches. The work will be of interest to physiologists, cellular and molecular biologists, biophysicists, and biochemists working on the function of membrane proteins such as receptors, ion channels, and transporters, as well as senior graduate students and independent investigators.  

Exploring the River: Seven Studies for a New Cross-River Connection in Rotterdam

This book presents the plans of seven architectural firms for a new central bridge in that most architecturally pioneering city of Rotterdam. The firms are those of Juan Busquets (Barcelona), William Alsop (London), Odile Decq B. Cornette (Paris), Atelier Quadrat, Max 1 (both Rotterdam), DS Land-schaparchitecten and VMX (both Amsterdam). Bringing together texts by each of the participating architects, this publication examines the urban planning motivations for a new cross-river connection, and the significance, more generally, of bridges in an urban environment. The result is a series of seven original and also quite different views on what it means to connect parts of a city otherwise geographically divided.

Gus Wortham Portrait of a Leader

Gus S. Wortham was a good businessman. Among other enterprises, he started a highly successful insurance company, American General, and helped to shape the economic institutions of Houston. Gus Wortham was a civic leader, who worked actively in the Chamber of Commerce to influence the city's economic climate and who left the city a legacy of cultural institutions, including the Wortham Theater Center. Gus Wortham was a rancher and land developer. Land: They aren't making any more if it , he liked to say. So he bought it, developed it, and built a business with it. In short, he became one of the most influential men in the history of Houston. This is the story of his life, his business, his city. Company records and interviews with Wortham's surviving friends and associates combine to make it a thorough account. Mr. Wortham had an interesting philosophy about several matters in life , writes his longtime friend and business partner Sterling C. Evans in the Foreword. One was on dollars. With thebusiness dollar, it was immoral not to make money and one had to make sure to receive full value. With the pleasure dollar, if one could afford it, enjoy it and never look back . This old-school Southwestern gentleman lived a life worthy of a movie, and his company, American General, has shaped a city worthy of a television series of its own. Urban and business historians alike will find this book a fascinating study, and those who know, or want to know, Houston will find it an enlightening chronicle.Dressman, Fran is the author of Gus Wortham Portrait of a Leader, published under ISBN 9780890965801 and 0890965803.

Core Four: The Heart and Soul of the Yankees Dynasty

Tracing the careers of four instrumental players who turned around the Yankees ball club, this book shares behind-the-scenes stories from their early days together in the minors through the 2012 season, and follows them on their majestic ride to the top of the baseball world. At a time when the New York Yankees were in free fall, having failed to win a World Series in 17 years and had not played in one in 14 years?the Bronx Bombers? longest drought since before the days of Babe Ruth?along came four young players whose powerful impact returned the franchise to its former glory. They were a diverse group from different parts of the globe: Mariano Rivera, a right-handed pitcher from Panama, who was destined to become the all-time record holder in saves and baseball?s greatest closer: Derek Jeter, a shortstop raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan, who would become the first Yankee to accumulate 3,000 hits: Jorge Posada, an infielder-turned-catcher from Puerto Rico, who would hit more home runs than any Yankees catcher except the legendary Hall of Famer Yogi Berra: and Andy Pettitte, a left-handed pitcher born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who would win more postseason games than any player in baseball history. Together they formed the ?Core Four,? and would go on to play as teammates for 13 seasons during which time they would help the Yankees advance to the postseason 12 times, win the American League pennant seven times, and take home five World Series trophies. This book follows these phenoms from the minor leagues to the present, detailing their significant contributions to a winning major league franchise.

A Bronte Bestiary

Contrary to the enduring myth that the Bront sisters led lives of isolation, they were in fact acutely aware of contemporary events. These included important developments in human and animal welfare. In their three greatest works, each sister uses animals to comment on the morality of her characters. In Agnes Grey, the treatment of animals is a reliable compass to the devout religiosity and uncomplicated morality of good people. Although clearly a lover of animals, Anne Bront shows her characters' animalistic tendencies and associations in a negative light. Charlotte Bront's Jane Eyre uses animals in a more complex way. In the novel, man's similarity to animals is not portrayed as necessarily bad, but it is each main character's ability, or lack thereof, to master his animal instincts that acts as an indicator of morality. Meanwhile, in Wuthering Heights the barriers between man and animal break down, allowing Emily Bront to call into question polite society's belief in its own superiority to other life on earth, be it human or animal.

In line with contemporary literary theory which views the self as a societal construction and strategic narrative device, this study explores Rilke's preoccupations with identity in his work, as he investigates the disintegration of the subjective self in the modern world. Rilke's re-readings of the mythological figures of Orpheus and Narcissus in modern psychological terms, as well as in terms of traditional poetics, are keys not only to his poetics and his changing understanding of self, but also to his evolving critique of society. This study tracks how Rilke's Orphic work disengages traditional patterns of perceptions, not only to challenge fidelity to history, but also to recover the power of traditional elements from that history to help articulate subjectivity in new terms.

Islands of Angry Ghosts: Murder, Mayhem and Mutiny: The Story of the Batavia

When Pelsaert returned, months later, with a rescue ship, the marooned were caught in a desperate battle between soldiers trying to defend them and the mutineers who were determined to leave no witnesses.

The Third Testament-Spirit of Truth: The Forerunner, The Guardian, The Book of True Life, Message from Mary

Did I not promise, that all knowledge would be restored to its original truth? Christ's prophecy has been fulfilled. The following words have become absolute reality: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth". (John 16, 12-13). This book of my teachings has been formed from the lessons of love and charity and dictated to you through human understanding. Since ancient times I have entrusted to you my teachings, through my envoys, my emissaries, my interpreters, and you have used it to create myths and traditions. But you will not fulfill your purpose unless you meditate and study this lesson with respect and love. Truly I say to you that he who meditates and analyzes the teachings of my Book, with a true desire to elevate his knowledge, will acquire the light for his spirit and he will feel Me nearer to him.

Leaving Islam: Apostates Speak Out

Given that I am rather skeptical of the very possibility of a scientific survey of apostates, it is rather difficult for me to make any psychological, sociological, or anthropological generalizations based on fewer than fifty personal testimonies that would be valid outside this particular group. No quick portrait of the typical apostate is likely to appear--some are young (students in their teens), some are middle-aged with children: some are scientists, while others are economists, businesspeople, or journalists: some are from Bangladesh, others are from Pakistan, India, Morocco, Egypt, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, or Iran. Our witnesses, nonetheless, do have certain moral and intellectual qualities in common: for instance, they are all comparatively well educated, computer literate with access to the Internet, and rational, with the ability to think for themselves. However, what is most striking is their fearlessness, their moral courage, and their moral commitment to telling the truth. They all face social ostracism, the loss of friends and family, a deep inner spiritual anguish and loneliness--and occasionally the death penalty if discovered. Their decisions are not frivolously taken, but the ineluctable result of rational thinking. There are very useful analogies to be drawn between communism and Islam. . . .As Arthur Koestler said, "You hate our Cassandra cries and resent us as allies, but when all is said, we ex-Communists are the only people on your side who know what it's all about." Communism has been defeated, at least for the moment: Islamism has not, and unless a reformed, tolerant, liberal kind of Islam emerges soon, perhaps the final battle will be between Islam and Western democracy. And these former Muslims, to echo Koestler's words, on the side of Western democracy are the only ones who know what it's all about, and we would do well to listen to their Cassandra cries. -- Ibn Warraq, from the Introduction

The Troublemaker: Michael Scott and His Lonely Struggle Against Injustice

In Britain, Michael Scott is one of the forgotten heroes of twentieth-century resistance against injustice and racial discrimination, though there are parts of Southern Africa and India where he is still regarded as a prophet or a saint.. His activities got him banned by the governing white regimes of three countries - South Africa, South West Africa (now Namibla) and Nyasaland (now Malawi) - in later life he was deported from India, and he served four terms in jail, three in Britain and one in South Africa. Even in his lifetime he was a mysterious and paradoxical figure, a one-time undercover agent for the Communist Party who became a scourge of totalitarianism, a Gandhian exponent of non-violence who trained as a rear gunner in the RAF, a Christian who enjoyed the company of atheists, a clergyman who berated his own church, a modest orator who once held the United Nations spelibound. The Church of England hierarchy accorded him little honour compared with Trevor Huiddleston or Canon John Collins, yet both men regarded him as their inspiration. The authors reveal that Scott did more than triumph over racial tyranny and abuse, he also triumphed over the circumstance of his own sexual abuse as a child. They do not conclude that he was either a saint or a prophet - he was much more interesting than that: but they have no doubt that he was an authentic British hero.

Verbal Riddim: The Politics and Aesthetics of African-Caribbean Dub Poetry (Cross/Cultures)

This is the first book-length study of dub poetry, the musical talkover that has been an important part of the reggae scene in Canada, Britain and of course the Caribbean since the 1970's. Christian Habekost 's qualifications for writing such a book are beyond dispute. He is a German poet who has been involved with the dub movement since it began and knows most of its leading figures. As Ranting Chako, he is featured on the LP Dread Poets Society. The bibliography indicates that he has interviewed many of the 43 poet-performers mentioned, often on several occasions. Verbal Riddim, based on his doctoral dissertation at the University of Mannheim, is a successful blend of the performer and the researcher.

Sloterdijk Now

Peter Sloterdijk is one of the most challenging and contentious thinkers currently working within the European tradition. This is the first collection devoted to his work for English-language audiences and will act as an introduction to his work, set an agenda for engagement with his ideas, and relate his writings to a range of political, theoretical and practical contexts. Since his philosophical bestseller Critique of Cynical Reason (1983), Sloterdijk has exercised an important influence over German and other European thought and recently interest in his diverse oeuvre has grown considerably. The past few years have seen a number of his books translated into English, with many more to come. The book seeks to do justice to the breadth of Sloterdijk's work throughout his career, orientated around the central topics of cynicism, ressentiment, the posthuman, space and world, art and literature, language, social science and his role as a public intellectual. Contributors include Babette Babich, Sjoerd van Tuinen, Eduardo Mendieta, Marie-Eve Morin, Efrain Kristol, Wieland Hoban, Nigel Thrift, Jean-Pierre Couture, and Sloterdijk himself.An explicitly interdisciplinary project, Sloterdijk Now is a crucial introduction to the work of this central thinker, in its complexity, variety and notoriety. It is set to spark debate amongst students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences.
