Book description


January 16th, 1967...A secret agent resigns from MI6, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in 'The Village' - a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six. The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned - but it's a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out 'Who is Number One?'. EPISODE ONE: DEPARTURE AND ARRIVAL. A failed meeting in Belgium catalyses Agent ZM-73 to resign from his top secret post, but when he wakes the following morning everything has changed - even his name. Trapped in a bizarre coastal village, and with his every move monitored by the mysterious Number Two, the man now known as Number Six struggles to make sense of it all. EPISODE TWO: THE SCHIZOID MAN. Six finds himself fascinated by a strange bond which has suddenly developed between himself and Number Nine. But the next morning, Six wakes to find himself changed. A moustache, different hair, and...a new name. Number Twelve. EPISODE THREE: YOUR BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE. Something is very wrong, as Six experiences the most disturbing sense deprivation. Almost complete darkness, filled with haunting sounds, fragments of conversations, and a desperate call from Nine start to test his reason. EPISODE FOUR: THE CHIMES OF BIG BEN. A new prisoner arrives in the village. The woman is strong-minded, independent, and refuses to accept her new number - Eight. She is not a number, she is Nadia. And Six is convinced that she is his ticket out of the village. For the first time on audio, a dynamic, full-cast revisiting of the one of the most regarded and discussed cult TV shows of all time - The Prisoner! Writer Nicholas Briggs has a long history of script work for Big Finish, including popular Doctor Who stories and many others. His love of The Prisoner goes back to seeing its first broadcast on ITV. Guest star Celia Imrie is one of Britain's most well-known and regarded actors on TV and film, appearing in everything from Highlander to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Doctor Who to Absolutely Fabulous. This set contains four one-hour episodes, a Behind-the-Scenes audio documentary, and a lavish colour booklet.

Every year, countless young adults from affluent, Western nations travel to Brazil to train in capoeira, the dance/martial art form that is one of the most visible strands of the Afro-Brazilian cultural tradition. In Search of Legitimacy explores why "first world" men and women leave behind their jobs, families, and friends to pursue a strenuous training regimen in a historically disparaged and marginalized practice. Using the concept of apprenticeship pilgrimage-studying with a local master at a historical point of origin-the author examines how non-Brazilian capoeiristas learn their art and claim legitimacy while navigating the complexities of wealth disparity, racial discrimination, and cultural appropriation.

Book description


Als Walt Blackmore in ein altes Haus am Rande einer kleinen Stadt einzieht, scheint es für ihn wirklich aufwärts zu gehen. Sein Schicksal verändert sich jedoch unwiderruflich, als ein dunkelroter Fleck an der Decke erscheint, der schließlich Stück für Stück zu einer Kreatur heranwächst. Während Walt zunächst daran interessiert ist, deren Wohlbefinden zu fördern und anfangs streunende Tiere an das Ding verfüttert, reicht dies nur kurz. Allmählich wird es wieder menschlich, und um das zu erreichen, sind menschliches Blut und Fleisch erforderlich. Kaum hat Walt die Grenze zwischen Neugier und Mord überschritten, gibt es keinen Weg zurück.

»Seite um atemberaubende Seite macht es Ed Kurtz richtig. Für mich war dieses Buch ein Schwelgen in Erinnerungen, seine leuchtende Prosa und unaufhaltsame Spannung versetzten mich zurück in die großen Kleinstadt-Horror-Romane der 70er und 80er Jahre. Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass diese so noch gemacht werden, aber Gott sei Dank, ich habe mich geirrt. Denn mit BLEED hat Kurtz nicht nur eine intensive, beängstigend Geschichte geschrieben, sondern auch eine zeitlose.« - Joe McKinney, Autor von Apokalypse des Toten und Fleisch-Esser

Book description


Soldier and adventurer David Neild was the youngest officer to serve in the legendary Trucial Oman Scouts when he joined them at the age of only 20 in 1959. In 1968 Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, with whom Neild had formed a good working relationship, called on Neild to set up and command a national defence force for the Sheikhdom, with the rank of Lt Colonel. Then, in 1972 after the Ruler of Sharjah was assassinated, Neild was asked to establish and command the Sharjah National Guard. The account of Neild’s career in Arabia is set against the backdrop of unrest and uncertainty and the emerging national politics of the day. It is both a valuable historic record as well as an entertaining and honest account, told with empathy and in the lean, objective style of a military man who on a daily basis had to balance the need for rapid political, strategic and tactical decisions with respect for the traditional ways of a complex tribal Arab culture.The evidence of his success is revealed through the enduring relationship that has been forged with HH Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, son of the founding Ruler and his former employer, as well as the continuing presence and strength of both the Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah Defence Forces. A Soldier in Arabia is a unique first-hand account of a life lived to the full during a significant period of history on the Arabian Peninsula. The author writes with understanding and insight of the sheikhs and soldiers, statesmen and scoundrels encountered along the way. Part memoir, part history, but always full of adventure, this compelling account will provide the reader with a better understanding of a part of the world frequently misunderstood by outsiders and an appreciation of the remarkable man who earned the lasting respect of both the leaders he served and the soldiers he led.

Book description


'This volume covers an impressively wide ground of issues related to (and originating from) the EU's Common Agricultural Policy, from both a domestic and an international perspective. Legal, economic and political matters are treated by top-class scholars. Each individual chapter is worth reading, and collectively they constitute a treasure chest of highly valuable insights into the operation and deficits of the CAP.'
- Stefan Tangermann, former OECD Director for Trade and AgricultureFollowing the conclusion of the latest round of reforms to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in 2013, theResearch Handbook on EU Agriculture Law provides an up-to-date discussion of these reforms and the changing landscape in which the CAP now operates.

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, and with international contributors from across Europe and the United States, the Handbook commences with analyses of the legal instruments which implement the reformed CAP, before moving on to consider questions of land use, the role of agriculture within the wider food chain and the international dimension. In these contexts, particular issues identified include: the environmental impact of past, present and future farming practices; the ability of the food chain to accommodate consumer preferences and scientific innovation; and the hurdles to be cleared before international consensus can be reached on a whole range of agricultural imperatives.

As well as providing a state-of-the-art point of reference for academics, this comprehensive book will be of great interest to students, scholars and policymakers dealing with these new challenges faced by agriculture in the EU.

Book description


Donald Winnicott is currently the most popular author in contemporary psychoanalysis. His writings are cited in bibliographies even more frequently than those by Sigmund Freud. And yet how many mental health professionals have actually managed to read and digest the nearly twenty published volumes of Winnicott’s books, chapters, essays, reviews, and letters?

Professor Brett Kahr, an award-winning biographer and scholar of long-standing, has resurrected Donald Woods Winnicott from the dead and has invited him for a memorable cup of tea at 87 Chester Square – Winnicott’s London residence – in which the two men discuss Winnicott’s life and work in compelling detail.

After digesting Kahr’s highly accessible “posthumous interview” with Winnicott, readers will have come to acquire a thorough overview of Winnicott’s corpus of writings, and will appreciate the historical context in which he scripted his pioneering psychoanalytical contributions.

A highly creative exercise in “imaginative non-fiction”, this book – the first in a new series entitled Interviews with Icons – will delight novices and experienced professionals alike.

Lavishly illustrated by Alison Bechdel--winner of the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” award and author of Fun Home--with original drawings of Winnicott based on unpublished photographs of Winnicott from Kahr’s archive, this book will be the perfect guide for both students and scholars, and the ideal gift for colleagues.

Book description


'While no one can deny the broad sweep of US Supreme Court landmarks, if one really wants to understand the justice system in America, and the interrelationship of courts and governance, one cannot overlook state systems. American Judicial Power does a thorough job of explaining the many interactions of state governments with state courts, including especially the allocation of governmental powers between state and local governments. For those seeking to understand state government beyond its superficial parallels to the federal system, American Judicial Power is an essential work.'
- Michael A. Wolff, Saint Louis University, School of Law, US'Justice for most American citizens lives in the corridors and on the websites of state, not federal, courts across the country. This book is a much-needed and extraordinary addition to the scholarship about those courts. State courts are overburdened and underfunded, but as the authors note, they are innovative and exciting as well. Each court is a creature of its own state's history and culture, but ideas and attributes cross state lines regularly. Readers will come away from this book with a far greater understanding of where our state courts have been, and where they are going.'
- Rebecca Love Kourlis, IAALS, Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System

'In the preamble to the United States Constitution the country's founders pronounced that their paramount purpose was to 'establish justice'. But how and why those architects of the American justice system adopted a bifurcated federal and state system of courts was obscure until the publication of American Judicial Power. Buenger and De Muniz illustrate for us a blueprint of the amazingly crafted separation of state and federal power, subject matter jurisdiction and appellate review that is the foundation of the world's most transparent and balanced justice system. American Judicial Power leads the reader through the evolution of state and federal judicial authority, judicial selection and balancing of separation of powers not only among the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government but through the preservation of the precarious equilibrium of a democratic republic. Written by two dynamic court leaders, American Judicial Power connects the past with the future.'
- Mary Campbell McQueen, President, National Center for State Courts, US

American Judicial Power: The State Court Perspective is a welcome addition to the breadth of studies on the American legal system and provides an accessible and highly illuminating overview of the state courts and their functions.

The study of America's courts is overwhelmingly skewed toward the federal government, and therefore often overlooks state courts and their importance. Michael Buenger and Paul De Muniz fill this gap in the study of American constitutionalism, as they examine the wide and distinctive powers these courts exercise, and their role in administering the bulk of the nation's justice system. This groundbreaking work covers many critical topics pertaining to the state courts, including: a comparison of the role of state and federal courts, the history of America's state courts, the judicial selection processes utilized in the states, the unique roles assigned to state courts and the varying structure of those courts, the relationship between state judicial power and state legislative power, and the opportunities and challenges that are and will be facing the state courts.

With an insightful foreword from Sanford Levinson, this revolutionary book will be of interest to students, educators, and researchers in the fields of law, political science, and government. Constitutional law experts will also benefit from an analysis of the state courts and their powers.

Book description


For centuries, the remains of the great Roman-British bathing and temple complex in the center of Bath have attracted the interest and imagination of countless visitors to the city. But there is more to the archaeology of Bath than its Roman monuments. Human settlement here has spanned ten millennia, dating back to the final retreat of the ice sheets from Britain at the close of the last Ice Age. Antiquarians, archaeologists and scholars have long been drawn not only to the Roman structures, but to the worked flint scattered on the hills and in the river silts around the town, the earthworks surviving on the surrounding uplands, and the great medieval Abbey that dominated the town from the 11th century. As a result, hundreds of recorded observations have been accumulated, stretching back to the 17th century, but augmented over the last century by increasing numbers of excavations, in many cases combined with meticulous research. This volume provides a collection and rigorous assessment of this accumulated information, much of which has to date been either unpublished or available only in obscure sources, and offers a synthesis of what this information tells us of Bath's past. Part 1 comprises an overview of the area's natural topography, a summary of antiquarian and early archaeological investigation, and a survey of the archaeological evidence available to us today.

Book description


Parmigianino (1503-1540) was among the leading artists of Mannerism, the style that characterised the later years of the Italian High Renaissance and spread throughout Europe, and is known for the exquisite grace and refinement of his art. Heir to Raphael and Correggio he is considered one of the most accomplished draughtsmen of all times. The Louvre has the largest collection of his drawings and the catalogue traces his development as an artist through the analysis of over 60 magnificent drawings.

Parmigianino was extremely precocious, and after having absorbed the innovations coming from different artistic centres of Northern Italy (Venice, Ferrara, Cremona, Parma), at only 19 years of age he went to Rome and was presented to the pope. After the sack of Rome, he moved to Bologna and then returned to his hometown, Parma. Never satisfied with the results attained, he drew and sketched continuously leaving us an exceptional legacy.

Contents: Essays - Parmigianino in the eye of the mirror by Dominique Cordellier; ' La maniera bella': the style of the draughtsman by Laura Angelucci; An alchemist of draughtsmanship: observations on drawing techniques by Roberta Serra; The formation of the Parmigianino collection at the Louvre by Laurence Lhinarès; Chronology; Catalogue; 1517-1524: from Parme to Rome by Dominique Cordellier; 1524-1530: Rome and Bologna by Roberta Serra; 1530-1540: Parme and Casalmaggiore by Laura Angelucci; Bibliography; Index of names and places.

Book description


Feminist Experiences develops and defends a distinctive understanding of feminist philosophy as social critique. Feminist philosophy is essentially a political endeavor, Johanna Oksala argues, aiming to expose, analyze, and ultimately change gendered power relations. However, such an understanding of feminist philosophy raises a host of theoretical problems and paradoxes. Oksala investigates the philosophical challenges and outlines the ontological presuppositions and methodological innovations the project requires.

Drawing on conceptual tools from the thought of Michel Foucault, but also from the tradition of phenomenology, she explores the role of experience in feminist philosophy and its relationship to language and linguistic meaning. Oksala concludes by sketching a feminist ontology of the present through a critical investigation of neoliberalism and the challenges it presents to feminist theory and politics

But it also teems with Old West history that is salted with iconic figures of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Last Chance Byway tells the stories of human endeavor and folly in a place historians have long ignored. The history of Nine Mile Canyon is often the story of those who came with dreams and left broke and disillusioned, although there were exceptions. Some who left their mark include famed outlaw hunter Joe Bush, infamous bounty hunter Jack Watson, the larger-than-life cattle baron Preston Nutter, and Robert Leroy Parker, better known as Butch Cassidy.

Book description


'[This book] offers a rare practical analysis of the real significance and relevance of international law in juridical practice.'
- Páll Hreinsson, EFTA-Court'This book offers a very practical examination of the relationship between international law and domestic law, not least by a detailed analysis of domestic case law. It reveals a variety of possible approaches to giving effect to unimplemented international law in both national law and dualistic countries. It also provides very interesting insights into, and an understanding of, highly topical issues.'
- Gudmundur Alfredsson, University of Akureyri, Iceland

What are the theoretical and practical issues relating to the intersection between domestic and international law? This important new book discusses how general theories, including monism and dualism, transpire in practice.

The author examines several key areas: the rules relating to treaty making and the ratification of treatises, the doctrine of automatic incorporation and transformation, the direct effect of international norms in the domestic system, and a discussion of the principle of consistent interpretation. With a focus on the European Convention on Human Rights, the author concludes that, although traditional theories are still relevant, they fall short in grasping the complexity of the different ways in which the legislator and the courts have given effect to international law on the domestic level.

Students and scholars of international and domestic law will find this book to be useful in their studies. It will also be of interest to academics, judges, and practicing lawyers.

Book description


Data accumulated about customers, products, and website users can not only help interpret the past, it can help predict the future! Probabilistic programming is a programming paradigm in which code models are used to draw probabilistic inferences from data. By applying specialized algorithms, programs assign degrees of probability to conclusions and make it possible to forecast future events like sales trends, computer system failures, experimental outcomes, and other critical concerns.

Practical Probabilistic Programming explains how to use the PP paradigm to model application domains and express those probabilistic models in code. It shows how to use the Figaro language to build a spam filter and apply Bayesian and Markov networks to diagnose computer system data problems and recover digital images. Then it dives into the world of probabilistic inference, where algorithms help turn the extended prediction of social media usage into a science. The book covers functional-style programming for text analysis and using object-oriented models to predict social phenomena like the spread of tweets, and using open universe models to model real-life social media usage. It also teaches the principles of algorithms such as belief propagation and Markov chain Monte Carlo. The book closes out with modeling dynamic systems by using a product cycle as its main example and explains how probabilistic models can help in the decision-making process for an ad campaign.

The hit BBC series is back! Big Finish create a new series of stories featuring the characters of the internationally-successful Doctor Who spin-off! It has been four years since the Miracle, and Gwen and Rhys's lives have gone back to normal, very normal. They're raising their daughter (they've got pictures they'd be only too happy to show you), they're living in a nice house, and they're almost on top of the laundry. Captain Jack Harkness has been missing from the world and their lives for a long time. But late one night the phone rings, and they're summoned to an isolated part of North Wales. The Bryn Offa Nursing Home contains a dark secret, an alien threat, and someone who really shouldn't be there. Gwen and Rhys are about to discover that Torchwood stays with you for the rest of your life. The huge, and long-running, public interest in new Torchwood adventures resulted in a server melt-down when this series' return on audio was announced by star John Barrowman on his Sunday night radio slot. Eve Myles was originally introduced to Doctor Who fans in the Christopher Eccleston story The Unquiet Dead, before being chosen to co-lead the spin-off series Torchwood in 2006. iC* Producer James Goss wrote several best-selling Torchwood hardback books, and most recently launched his novel Haterz, looking at social media personalities. This is the third of a much-anticipated set of six stories running monthly until April 2016. Interest has been so significant that a second series already been greenlit, starting a month later...CAST: Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), Kai Owen (Rhys Williams), Philip Bond (Griffith), Valmai Jones (Elunedd), Sean Carlsen (Gary), Emma Reeves (Ceri).

Book description


A serial killer is on the loose in Naples, Florida, an enclave of wealth and privilege on the Southwest Gulf Coast. At first, the murders have been disguised as accidents, but when Police Chief Wade Hansen becomes suspicious, Mayor Charles Beaumont orders him to apprehend the killer before the truth becomes public knowledge.

Hansen reaches out to retired Chicago homicide detective Jack Starkey. Starkey, who has been shot three times: twice on the job and once in the army, is enjoying every cop's retirement dream, but at the same time, misses the thrill of the hunt, so he accepts the job.

As the bodies stack up like cordwood, Starkey searches for anything that the victims might have in common. He decides to go undercover as a member of the Naples elite in an attempt to get himself noticed by the killer, drawing the attention of Count Vasily Petrovich, who operates a hedge fund named for the Atocha, a Spanish galleon that sank in a hurricane off the Florida Keys in 1622.

When Starkey discovers that all of the victims so far had been investors in that fund, and that the count is not a count at all, but a member of the Russian mafia he suspects that the Atocha Fund might have a substantial penalty for early withdrawal.

Meanwhile, William Stevens, a Chicago Tribune police reporter, has been writing a series of best-selling crime novels based upon his pal Starkey's career. Starkey's alter-ego is Chicago homicide detective Jack Stoney.

Things are not what they seem, plot twists abound, and the bullets begin to fly. Starkey, in desperation, reaches out to the fictional Stoney, to help him catch the killer.

Book description


Charlotte Moorman was a bold, barrier-breaking musician and performance artist and a tireless champion of experimental art, whose avant-garde festivals in New York City brought new art forms to a broad public. To date, recognition of Moorman has been limited mostly to her collaborations with other artists, including composer John Cage and pioneering multimedia artist Nam June Paik, and to her 1967 performance of Paik’s "Opera Sextronique," for which she became known as the "topless cellist" after being arrested on indecency charges. A Feast of Astonishments looks deeper to portray Moorman as a leading international figure in her own right.

With more than 150 color images and essays by art historians, curators, and musicologists, this catalog will offer a fresh perspective and complement an exhibition that opens at Northwestern University’s Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art in January 2016 before traveling to New York University’s Grey Art Gallery in Manhattan and the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg, Austria. The exhibition will feature original sculptures, photographs, video, props and costumes, annotated music scores, archival materials, film clips, and audio recordings, many drawn from the Charlotte Moorman Archive at the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, Northwestern University Library. The exhibition is a partnership between the Block Museum and the Northwestern University Libraries.

Book description


The idea behind Docker, a free an open source program, is simple. Create a tiny virtual environment, called a container, for an application that includes only its particular set of dependencies. The Docker engine accounts for, manages, and builds these containers through functionality provided by the host operating system. Software running inside containers share the Linux OS and other resources, making their footprints radically smaller, and the containerized applications easy to install, manage, and remove. Applications can be packaged without worrying about environment-specific deployment concerns, and the operations team gets cleaner, more efficient systems across the board.

Docker in Action starts with a clear explanation of the Docker model of virtualization and shows how to create, deploy, and manage applications hosted in Docker containers. It offers specific techniques for testing and distributing applications via Docker Hub and other registries. It shows how to take advantage of the Linux OS features that Docker uses to run programs securely, and how to manage shared resources. Using carefully-designed examples, the book guides readers on orchestrating containers and applications from installation to removal. Along the way, it teaches techniques for using Docker on systems ranging from personal dev-and-test machine to full-scale cloud deployments.
