Agriculture and Industry in South-Eastern Roman Britain

The ancient counties surrounding the Weald in the SE corner of England have a strongly marked character of their own that has survived remarkably well in the face of ever-increasing population pressure. The area is, however, comparatively neglected in discussion of Roman Britain, where it is often subsumed into a generalised treatment of the ‘civilian’ part of Britannia that is based largely on other parts of the country. This book aims to redress the balance.

Under Siege: The Independent Labour Party in Interwar Britain

During the period between the two world wars, the Independent Labour Party was the main voice of radical socialism in Great Britain. Following World War I, as the Labour Party edged nearer to its 1929 electoral victory, the ILP found its own identity under siege. In 1932, the ILP chose to disaffiliate from the Labour Party in order to pursue a “revolutionary policy” – a policy that ultimately led to much debate and disunity. By the return of war in 1939, the party had all but dissolved. But despite its reversal of fortunes, the ILP demonstrated an unswerving commitment to democratic socialist thinking. Bullock examines the debates and ideological battles of the ILP, arguing that the ILP made a lasting contribution to British politics in general, and to the modern Labour Party in particular, by preserving the values of democratic socialism during the interwar period.

Defiant Courage: A WWII Epic of Escape and Endurance

"I remember reading We Die Alone in 1970 and I could never forget it. Then when we went to Norway to do a docudrama, people told us again and again that certain parts were pure fiction. Since I was a Norwegian that was not good enough; I had to find the truth. I sincerely believe we did,” writes author Astrid Karlsen Scott. Defiant Courage is the true story of what Jan Baalsrud endured as he tried to escape from the Gestapo in Norway’s Troms District.

The Published Writings of Wilbur and Orville Wright

For the first time, nearly seventy of Wilbur and Orville Wright's published writings are brought together in a single, annotated reference. Spanning the decades from the brothers' turn-of-the-century experiments with gliders until Orville's death in 1948, the articles describe the design of their aircraft, early test flights, and camp life at Kitty Hawk. Because Wilbur's sudden death in 1912 ended any hope that the Wrights would produce a book of their own, the articles collected in this volume are their only published words.

The Best Gun in the World : George Woodward Morse and the South Carolina State Military Works

A year after seceding from the Union, South Carolina and the Confederate States government faced the daunting challenge of equipping soldiers with weapons, ammunition, and other military implements during the American Civil War. In The Best Gun in the World, Robert S. Seigler explains how South Carolina created its own armory and then enlisted the help of a weapons technology inventor to meet the demand. Seigler mined state and federal factory records, national and state archives, and U.S. patents for detailed information on weapons production, the salaries and status of free and enslaved employees, and other financial records to reveal an interesting, distinctive story of technological innovation and industrialization in South Carolina.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for People with Intellectual Disabilities: Thinking creatively

This book examines the influence others have on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and how this impacts on their psychological well-being. Based on the authors' clinical experiences of using cognitive behavioural therapy with people who have intellectual disabilities, it takes a social interactionist stance and positions their arguments in a theoretical and clinical context. The authors draw on their own experiences and several case studies to introduce novel approaches on how to adapt CBT assessment and treatment methods for one-to-one therapy and group interventions. They detail the challenges of adapting CBT to the needs of their clients and suggest innovative and practical solutions. This book will be of great interest to scholars of psychology and mental health as well as to therapists and clinicians in the field.

Salmonella Enterica
Salmonella Enterica Sented by Michael

The bacterium Salmonella enterica is a serious bacterial pathogen and causative agent of salmonellosis infections on a worldwide scale. Many clinical isolates of S. entericaS. enterica. Following this, the strengths and limitations of the available molecular tools for effective epidemiological assessment of foodborne salmonellae are collected and critically discussed. Such integration would allow accurate identification of both infection source and transmission route that would lead to implementation of effective control measures. Additionally, the role of Salmonella enterica as a possible therapeutic alternative in the fight against cancer. Although Salmonella enterica tumor selectivity remains unclear, pre-clinical and clinical trials have shown its localization in solid, semi-solid and metastatic tumors. The final chapter reviews some mechanisms and recent trends in the spread of multidrug resistant Salmonella enterica. serovar in Nigeria. Antibiotic use both in animal and human medicine and environmental factors, all have a role in the emergence, persistence and spread of resistance.

Networked Control Systems
Networked Control Systems Sented by Paul

The research topic of networked control systems has been the focus over the last 15 years for the academic and industrial sectors. Networked control systems (NCSs) are distributed control systems in which the sensors, actuators, and controllers are physically separated and connected through an industrial network. NCSs represent the evolution of control architectures, providing greater modularity and control decentralization, maintenance ease and diagnosis, and lower cost of implementation. The R&D on NCSs has been overcoming the effects of the network delays, packet losses and message sampling intervals on NCS performance and stability. The advances in wireless networking technology and the proliferation of industrial wireless sensors have led to an increasing interest in using wireless networks for closed loop control. The main advantages of Wireless Networked Control Systems (WNCSs) are the reconfigurability, easy commissioning and the possibility of installation in places where cabling is impossible. Despite these advantages, a major problem must be considered for practical implementations of WNCSs. The technological concern in WNCSs is the energy efficiency of the devices. As the sensors are powered by batteries, the lowest possible consumption is required to extend battery lifetime without compromising the WNCS control performance. Recently, there has been great interest in the development of IoT-based NCSs. This new type of architecture in which control systems are integrated with IoT-based infrastructures represents the next evolution of networked control architectures. Even though this idea enables a whole range of novel functionalities, feedback control design and architectures for IoT imposes significant challenges that have not been addressed yet. This book compiles the last theoretical and experimental results in the topics of NCSs and WNCSs and starts discussing the last trend of IoT-based NCSs. The book focuses on presenting the research challenges within these topics and the last advances to enable their application in the industry.

Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporters Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta bring us the first comprehensive portrait of the most fascinating and controversial woman in American politics. Drawing upon documents and sources that no other reporters have ever accessed, Gerth and Van Natta will forever change the way you think about Hillary.

My Captivity: A Pioneer Woman's Story of Her Life Among the Sioux

Fanny Kelly’s memoir, first published in 1872, is an intelligent and thoughtful narrative. Kelly spent five months as a prisoner of Ogalalla Sioux in 1864 when she was nineteen years old. A woman of her time, there was no reason she should feel sympathy toward her captors, but the introduction points out examples of expressed favor toward the Sioux, however unconscious. This narrative is a valuable part of literature not only for its historical importance but its depiction of the conflicting images of Native Americans in the nineteenth century: savage aggressors or victims of prejudice and oppression.
