Queen of the Ploughing
Queen of the Ploughing Sented by Paul

Anna May McHugh's name is synonymous with 'the Ploughing' - the annual Championships of the National Ploughing Association. The event is the biggest outdoor agricultural show in Europe and Anna May is the driving force behind its spectacular growth.

In Essentials, Unity : An Economic History of the Grange Movement

The Patrons of Husbandry-or the Grange-is the longest-lived US agricultural society and, since its founding shortly after the Civil War, has had immeasurable influence on social change as enacted by ordinary Americans. The Grange sought to relieve the struggles of small farmers by encouraging collaboration. Pathbreaking for its inclusion of women, the Grange is also well known for its association with Gilded Age laws aimed at curbing the monopoly power of railroads.

From White to Yellow: The Japanese in European Racial Thought, 1300-1735

When Europeans first landed in Japan they encountered people they perceived as white-skinned and highly civilized, but these impressions did not endure. Gradually the Europeans' positive impressions faded away and Japanese were seen as yellow-skinned and relatively inferior. Accounting for this dramatic transformation, From White to Yellow is a groundbreaking study of the evolution of European interpretations of the Japanese and the emergence of discourses about race in early modern Europe.

The Pilum: The Roman Heavy Javelin (Weapon)

A heavy javelin, normally used as a shock weapon immediately before contact, the pilum was designed with a particular specialty: it could penetrate a shield and carry on into the individual behind it. Relying on mass rather than velocity, at short range a volley of pila had much the same effect on a charging enemy as musketry would in later periods. The design was not uniform, with a wide diversity of types throughout the developmental history of the weapon, but for more than four centuries it remained a vital part of the arsenal of weapons at the disposal of the Roman legionary.

The Summer Game
The Summer Game Sented by Shon

A classic collection of early sportswriting by renowned reporter Roger Angell! Acclaimed New Yorker writer Roger Angell's first book on baseball, The Summer Game, originally published in 1972, is a stunning collection of his essays on the major leagues, covering a span of ten seasons. Angell brilliantly captures the nation's most beloved sport through the 1960s, spanning both the winning teams and the "horrendous losers," and including famed players Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Willie Mays, and more. With the panache of a seasoned sportswriter and the energy of an avid baseball fan, Angell's sports journalism is an insightful and compelling look at the great American pastime.

Contributions To The Theory Of Zeta-Functions: The Modular Relation Supremacy

This volume provides a systematic survey of almost all the equivalent assertions to the functional equations - zeta symmetry - which zeta-functions satisfy, thus streamlining previously published results on zeta-functions. The equivalent relations are given in the form of modular relations in Fox H-function series, which at present include all that have been considered as candidates for ingredients of a series. The results are presented in a clear and simple manner for readers to readily apply without much knowledge of zeta-functions.

Deformation and Flow of Polymeric Materials

This book describes the properties of single polymer molecules and polymeric materials and the methods how to characterize them. Molar masses, molar mass distributions and branching structure are discussed in detail. These properties are decisive for a deeper understanding of structure/properties relationships of polymeric materials.

Autonomy and Human Rights in Health Care

This book offers a group of essays published in memory of David Thomasma, one of the leading humanists in the field of bioethics during the twentieth century.

Farey Sequences: Duality and Maps Between Subsequences

As a first comprehensive overview on Farey sequences and subsequences, this monograph is intended as a reference for anyone looking for specific material or formulas related to the subject. Duality of subsequences and maps between them are discussed and explicit proofs are shown in detail.

Physics from Symmetry (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

This is a textbook that derives the fundamental theories of physics from symmetry. It starts by introducing, in a completely self-contained way, all mathematical tools needed to use symmetry ideas in physics. Thereafter, these tools are put into action and by using symmetry constraints, the fundamental equations of Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Electromagnetism, and Classical Mechanics are derived.

Agent-Based Modeling in Humanitarian Interventions

When a nation or region of the world is under a state of distress and violence, international government agencies are tasked with the job of delivering aid to assist. Before intervening, however, it is imperative to examine the situation's individual characteristics and risks. Agent-Based Modeling in Humanitarian Interventions: Emerging Research and Opportunities examines the benefits and challenges of utilizing behavioral models and simulations to conduct and assess possible risks and operational strategies for stability and counterinsurgency operations in distressed countries. Including innovative studies on ethical considerations, military involvement, and non-governmental organizations, this book is an ideal source for policy makers, researchers, students, practitioners, and academics interested in the use of agent-based models for international coalition efforts.

Addressing Brain Injury in Under-Resourced Settings

Foucault and Religion
Foucault and Religion Sented by Musa

Foucault and Religion is the first major study of Michel Foucault in relation and response to Religion. Jeremy Carrette offers us a challenging new look at Foucault's work and addresses a religious dimension that has previously been neglected.

Primate Behavioral Ecology, Fifth Edition

This comprehensive introductory text integrates evolutionary, ecological, and demographic perspectives with new results from field studies and contemporary noninvasive molecular and hormonal techniques to understand how different primates behave and the significance of these insights for primate conservation. Each chapter is organized around the major research themes in the field, with Strier emphasizing the interplay between theory, observations, and conservation issues. Examples are drawn from the "classic" primate field studies as well as more recent studies on previously neglected species, illustrating the vast behavioral variation that exists across the primate order. Primate Behavioral Ecology 5th Edition also examines how anthropogenic activities are negatively impacting primate populations, including a thorough analysis of behavioural plasticity and its implications. This fully updated new edition incorporates exciting new discoveries and the most up-to-date approaches in the field to provide an invaluable overview of the field of primate behavioral ecology and its applications to primate conservation. It is considered to be a "must read" for all students interested in primates.

Drug Education Library - Narcotics

Narcotics, chemicals originally derived from the opium poppy, are some of the oldest drugs in human history. Valued for their ability to reduce pain and alter perception, narcotics have played roles in medical care and religion for the last 4,000 years. Today, morphine, the active ingredient in opium, and its wide array of synthetic derivatives are still the most powerful pain-killing drugs in the physician's medical chest. Yet, this impressive family of drugs, described by some as "God's Own Medicine" are strongly addictive and have exacted a grim toll on society.
