BOOK OVERVIEWS: NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms. Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

Category: Books Books

BOOK OVERVIEWS: Wuthering Heights is the name of Mr. HeathcliffÕs dwelling. ÔWutheringÕ being a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather. Pure, bracing ventilation they must have up there at all times, indeed: one may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge, by the excessive slant of a few stunted firs at the end of the house; and by a range of gaunt thorns all stretching their limbs one way, as if craving alms of the sun. Happily, the architect had foresight to build it strong: the narrow windows are deeply set in the wall, and the corners defended with large jutting stones. Before passing the threshold, I paused to admire a quantity of grotesque carving lavished over the front, and especially about the principal door; above which, among a wilderness of crumbling griffins and shameless little boys, I detected the date Ô1500,Õ and the name ÔHareton Earnshaw.Õ I would have made a few comments, and requested a short history of the place from the surly owner; but his attitude at the door appeared to demand my speedy entrance, or complete departure, and I had no desire to aggravate his impatience previous to inspecting the penetralium. One stop brought us into the family sitting-room, without any introductory lobby or passage: they call it here Ôthe houseÕ pre-eminently. It includes kitchen and parlour, generally; but I believe at Wuthering Heights the kitchen is forced to retreat altogether into another quarter: at least I distinguished a chatter of tongues, and a clatter of culinary utensils, deep within; and I observed no signs of roasting, boiling, or baking, about the huge fireplace; nor any glitter of copper saucepans and tin cullenders on the walls. One end, indeed, reflected splendidly both light and heat from ranks of immense pewter dishes, interspersed with silver jugs and tankards, towering row after row, on a vast oak dresser, to the very roof. The latter had never been under-drawn: its entire anatomy lay bare to an inquiring eye, except where a frame of wood laden with oatcakes and clusters of legs of beef, mutton, and ham, concealed it. Above the chimney were sundry villainous old guns, and a couple of horse-pistols: and, by way of ornament, three gaudily-painted canisters disposed along its ledge. The floor was of smooth, white stone; the chairs, high-backed, primitive structures, painted green: one or two heavy black ones lurking in the shade. In an arch under the dresser reposed a huge, liver-coloured bitch pointer, surrounded by a swarm of squealing puppies; and other dogs haunted other recesses.

Category: Political Science Books

BOOK OVERVIEWS: The Conquest of Bread presents the clearest statement of Kropotkin's anarchist social doctrines. It possesses a lucidity of style not often found in books on social themes. In Kropotkin's own description, the book is "e;a study of the needs of humanity, and the economic means to satisfy them"e;. Taking the Paris Commune as its model, its paramount aim is to show how a social revolution can be made and how a society, organized on libertarian lines, can then be built on the ruins of the old. Form Stirner's individualism, Proudhon's mutualism and Bakunin's collectivism Kropotkin proceeded to the principle of "e;anarchist communism"e;, by which private property and inequality of income would give way to the free distribution of goods and services. In summing up his beliefs he said, "e;The anarchists conceive a society in which all the mutual relations of its members are regulated... by mutual agreements between the members of the society and by a sum of social customs and habits...continually developing and continually readjusting in accordance with the ever-growing requirements of a free life stimulated by the progress of science, invention and the steady growth of higher ideals."e; In his introduction, George Woodcock throws a modern light on the significance and scope of Kropotkin's work.

Category: Mathematics Books

BOOK OVERVIEWS: Algorithms for Games aims to provide a concrete example of the programming of a two-person game with complete information, and to demonstrate some of the methods of solutions; to show the reader that it is profitable not to fear a search, but rather to undertake it in a rational fashion, make a proper estimate of the dimensions of the "catastrophe", and use all suitable means to keep it down to a reasonable size. The book is dedicated to the study of methods for limiting the extent of a search. The game programming problem is very well suited to the study of the search problem, and in general for multi-step solution processes. With this in mind, the book focuses on the programming of games as the best means of developing the ideas and methods presented. While many of the examples are related to chess, only an elementary knowledge of the game is needed.

Category: Literary Criticism Books

BOOK OVERVIEWS: The Outside Child, In and Out of the Book is situated at the intersection between children’s literature studies and childhood studies. In this provocative book, Christine Wilkie-Stibbs juxtaposes the narratives of literary and actual children/young adults to explore how Western culture has imagined, defined, and dealt with their outsider status – whether orphaned, homeless, refugee, victims of abuse, or exploited – and how processes of economic, social, or political impoverishment are sustained and naturalized in regimes of power, authority, and domination. In five chapters titled: "Outsider," "Displaced," "Erased," "Abject," "Unattached," and "Colonized," the book situates and repositions a range of pre- and post-millennium children’s/young adult fictions, autobiographies, policy documents, and reports in the current climate of rabid globalization, new "out-group" definitions, and prescribed normativity. Children’s/young adult fictions considered include: Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses trilogy; Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time; Jacqueline Wilson’s The Illustrated Mum; Shyam Selvadurai’s Funny Boy; Ann Provoost’s Falling; Meg Rosoff’s, How I Live Now; Elizabeth Laird’s A Little Piece of Ground. Autobiographical works include Zlata Filipovic’s Zlata’s Diary; Kevin Lewis’s The Kid; Latifa’s My Forbidden Face; and Valérie Zenatti’s When I Was a Soldier.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: The book contains the papers developed from the presentations at the Distributed Intelligence in Design Symposium, held in Salford in May 2009. In this context, Distributed Intelligence refers to the interdisciplinary knowledge of a range of different individuals in different organisations, with different backgrounds and experience, and the symposium discussed the media, technologies and behaviours required to support their successful collaboration. The book focusses on: how parametric and generative design media can be coupled with and managed alongside Building Information Modelling tools and systems how the cross-disciplinary knowledge is distributed and coordinated across different software, participants and organizations the characteristics of the evolving creative and collaborative practices how built environment education should be adapted to this digitally-networked practice and highly distributed intelligence in design The chapters address a range of innovative developments, methodologies, applications, research work and theoretical arguments, to present current experience and expectations as collaborative practice becomes critical in the design of future built environments.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: This book reviews recent advances in the molecular and infection biology, pathology, and molecular epidemiology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, as well as the identification and validation of novel molecular drug targets for the treatment of this mycobacterial disease. Despite being completely curable, tuberculosis is still one of the leading global causes of death. M. tuberculosis, the causative organism – one of the smartest pathogens known – adopts highly intelligent strategies for survival and pathogenesis. Presenting a wealth of information on the molecular infection biology of M. tuberculosis, as well as nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), the book provides an overview of the functional role of the PE/PPE group of proteins, which is exclusive to the genus Mycobacteria, of host-pathogen interactions, and virulence. It also explores the pathogenesis of the infection, pathology, epidemiology, and diagnosis of NTM. Finally it discusses current and novel approaches in vaccine development against tuberculosis, including the role of nanotechnology. With state-of-the-art contributions from experts in the respective domains, this book is an informative resource for practitioners as well as medical postgraduate students and researchers.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: The essential lifesaver for students who want to master probability For students learning probability, its numerous applications, techniques, and methods can seem intimidating and overwhelming. That's where The Probability Lifesaver steps in. Designed to serve as a complete stand-alone introduction to the subject or as a supplement for a course, this accessible and user-friendly study guide helps students comfortably navigate probability's terrain and achieve positive results. The Probability Lifesaver is based on a successful course that Steven Miller has taught at Brown University, Mount Holyoke College, and Williams College. With a relaxed and informal style, Miller presents the math with thorough reviews of prerequisite materials, worked-out problems of varying difficulty, and proofs. He explores a topic first to build intuition, and only after that does he dive into technical details. Coverage of topics is comprehensive, and materials are repeated for reinforcement—both in the guide and on the book's website. An appendix goes over proof techniques, and video lectures of the course are available online. Students using this book should have some familiarity with algebra and precalculus. The Probability Lifesaver not only enables students to survive probability but also to achieve mastery of the subject for use in future courses. A helpful introduction to probability or a perfect supplement for a course Numerous worked-out examples Lectures based on the chapters are available free online Intuition of problems emphasized first, then technical proofs given Appendixes review proof techniques Relaxed, conversational approach

BOOK OVERVIEWS: This is an essential text for primary trainees and teachers. While the focus in early reading is on systematic synthetic phonics, it is important to see the bigger picture and understand that teaching reading is a continuum that involves more much than the mechanics of reading. The book focuses on a range of issues to develop children who can read into children who do read, including extending reading with proficient readers, engaging disengaged readers, sustaining interest in reading in the transition from primary to secondary, and the importance of oracy in reading. Additionally, there is an exploration of the wider context of reading including international perspectives, new literacies and the importance of reading to personal development. Case studies and activities demonstrate practical applications with clear links to the underpinning theory, while critical reflections challenge the reader and encourage deeper thought about the chapter content.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: Foreword by Professor Emma Smith. The more you explore the plays of Shakespeare, the more you realise how they are an interrelated network of ideas and themes linked to his context, his audience and his understanding of the world. This book aims to equip busy teachers with the core knowledge of Shakespeare's body of work, enabling them to make links between themes, characters, language and allusions. Each section includes tips on how to bring this to life in the classroom, and features case studies from practising teachers in a range of contexts to illustrate how they can ensure that their students develop an appreciation of his work moving beyond the requirements of exams and empowering them to engage in the discussion around his influence and enduring appeal. The link between subject knowledge and pedagogical approaches runs throughout the book, focusing on the Shakespeare plays most popularly taught in the classroom and how we can enrich students' understanding of these by looking both at the links across the domain and the bigger picture his work presents.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Jura - Medienrecht, Multimediarecht, Urheberrecht, Note: 1,3, Hochschule Wismar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ein Problem so alt wie Pong. Nachahmungen beschäftigen die Bildschirmspielindustrie seit vielen Jahrzehnten – Anfang der 70er Jahre begonnen, in den 90er Jahren abgeebbt und seit einigen Jahren aufgrund der mobilen Plattformen wieder im Kommen. Vor allem der stete Aufstieg der Branche im 21. Jahrhundert macht Klonungen wieder rentabel. Durch die technische Fortentwicklung hat neben der Musik- und Filmindustrie vor allem die Bildschirmspielindustrie an Umsatz und Professionalität enorm zugelegt. Umso mehr Bildschirmspiele die Unterhaltungsbranche aufrollen,, desto wichtiger ist es für deren Entwickler und Hersteller, dass sie einen ausreichenden Schutz widerfahren. Die vorliegende Arbeit setzt sich mit diesem Thema auseinander und stellt sich die Frage, ob das aktuelle Urheberrecht genügend Schutz für Entwickler bietet. Es wird kurz auf die Geschichte und Entwicklung eingegangen, danach auf die einzelnen Werkarten die innerhalb eines Bildschirmspiels urheberrechtlichen Schutz genießen können, darunter vor allem auf den Unterschied zwischen Spielidee und Spielkonzept und ab wann eine Idee urheberrechtlichen Schutz genießen kann. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt liegt auf den urheberrechtlichen Schutzmöglichkeiten vor Nachahmungen, mithin wird hier die aktuelle Rechtsprechung zu Bearbeitungen und Umgestaltungen betrachtet und auf Bildschirmspiele angewandt. Letztlich wird ebenfalls an praktischen Beispielen (u.a. Crush the Castle ./. Angry Birds) gezeigt inwiefern geprüft werden kann, ob eine Nachahmung vorliegt oder nicht. Hierfür wurden Prüfungskriterien entwickelt die auf jeden Fall anwendbar sind. Es gibt zudem auch einen Abschnitt über die anderen Gewerblichen Schutzrechte und inwiefern diese für einen Bildschirmspielschutz anwendbar wären. Besonders müssen jedoch die Anlagen hervorgehoben werden. Dort stelle ich nicht nur Spielmuster vor an denen sich mehr oder minder alle Spiele bis heute halten, gebe Prüfungsmerkmale für das Spielgenre und Spielkonzept vor und erkläre alle benutzten Spezialbegriffe in einem Glossar. Letztlich bietet die Arbeit einen breiten Rundumschlag zum urheberrechtlichen Schutz von Bildschirmspielen der sowohl für privat Interessierte, wie auch für in den Fachbereich tätige, oder die es werden wollen, viele interessante und Kompakt zusammengetragene Informationen liefert, die weit über eine übliche Bachelorarbeit hinausgehen.
