|9781904313045 Castiglioni Phaidon Press Ltd. |
This is a comprehensive monograph on the work of Achille Castiglioni, one of the most important designers of the second half of the 20th century. Architect and designer of lighting, exhibitions, and a variety of products, the Milan-based Castiglioni has been working since the 1930s and is today recognized around the world as one of the undisputed masters of contemporary design. He has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, including a one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in the early 1990s. Many of his products have been awarded with the prestigious Compasso d'oro prize. Achille Castiglioni was born in 1918. After his degree in architecture in 1944, he started his career, concentrating mostly in architecture, often in collaboration with his brother Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Immediately after the war, in response to the industrialization of Italy, he turned his activity mainly to industrial and exhibition design. During his long career he has created objects that have become international icons, including the Arco, Frisbi (1978) and Parentesi lamps (1971), the San Luca armchair, the Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci tables. His strikingly innovative creations reveal just how much design can reflect an era, defining trends and cultural values. This book is a chronological account of all of Castiglioni's activities as both an architect and designer, revealing the wide scope of work he has done and the sheer number of projects he has conceived. Based on an in-depth study of Castglioni's archives, the text features illustrations of every project accompanied by a full and critical description. With a rich array of photographs and other graphic material, this book covers the whole range of Castiglioni's work, from architecture to product design, from museum-planning to the creation of exhibition spaces.

|9780199264872 Jameel, Moka Corporate Insolvency Law: Theory and Application Oxford Academ |
This volume analyses corporate insolvency law as a coherent whole, standing upon common fundamental principles.The author explains why consistency of principle must be sought, and how it might be found in the relevant statutory and case law. He then constructs an egalitarian theory for the analysis of corporate insolvency law, based on the premise that all the parties affected by insolvency law are to be treated as equals. He argues that this theory can reconcile the dictates of fairness with the demands of economic efficiency. The theory is applied to some of the most important aspects of insolvency law. Why should the individualistic method of enforcing claims against solvent companies give way to a collective method during insolvency? Why are there different formal mechanisms for dealing with troubled companies? What role does the pari passu principle play in the way the assets of an insolvent company are distributed? The book also provides a coherent explanation of why some transactions entered into by a company before it becomes insolvent are liable to be overturned during a formal insolvency procedure. It examines what impact the collectivity and the peculiar distributive con

|9780631233343 Daniel Usher Political Economy Wiley |

Additionally the text explores political topics from an economic perspective, including the avoidance of anarchy and despotism; and the mutual dependence of markets, voting, public administration, and law. Assuming no prior background in economics or calculus, the text relies largely on simple stories and paradigms to convey important economic concepts, preparing the student for more advanced courses and applying the lessons of economics for the citizen in a modern democratic society.

Is the average accountant being strangled by overregulation? Have traditional accounting and auditing practices been misunderstood and unfairly maligned? Can anything be done to reverse these damaging trends? In the 1984 edition of this book, Eugene H. Flegm gave an emphatic yes to all three questions. However, none of his suggestions were followed and today the condition of the accounting profession (defined as to include those in business as well as public accounting) is in dire straits. The regulators--FASB, SEC and the AICPA--have continued to overwhelm practicing accountants with a continuation of detailed rules making. In this updated version of his book, Mr. Flegm explains the causes of the current crisis, how the accounting profession and the FASB failed to deal with the developing problems 20 years ago, and how there is still some hope that the integrity of the profession can be restored. He reiterates his basic belief that only an historical cost based system can be used to establish the badly needed reliability in financial data which after all is why financial statements are relevant at all. He also brings to question whether or not the AICPA and the public auditing firms have not forfeited their self regulation franchise.

|9780826470300 West and the Rest Continuum |
Roger Scruton argues that to understand adequately the roots of Islamic terrorism, one must understand both the unique historical evolution of the state and the dynamic of globalization. Scruton reveals the philosophical and theological roots of the current clash of civilizations. He addresses issues such as the conflict between Islam and secular law, notions of citizenship, fulfilling the human need for belonging, and why globalization provokes such an apparent desire for revenge against the West in some Islamic minds. Scruton's narrative raises fundamental questions about the West's ability to recover and defend its own religious heritage while limiting the harmful effects of its decadent hyper-individualism and the culture of repudiation it has sparked both within its own societies and the societies it touches. Finally, Scruton calls for the West to re-examine some of its assumptions about such matters as immigration, multiculturalism, progress and prosperity.

That he was a man of high intelligence and tender affections these letters abundantly establish. By their directness and humility they bring us an intimate understanding of genius.

It is the human spirit, not the fame of the artist, that is the secret of their perennial attraction. * This selection by Professor Mark Roskill, who contributes an introduction and notes, also includes the memoir of van Gogh written by his sister-in-law.

But now they find they'd better learn how to get along, because since their mother's death their aging father has been sliding into his second childhood, and an alarming new woman has just entered his life. Valentina, a bosomy young synthetic blonde from the Ukraine, seems to think their father is much richer than he is, and she is keen that he leave this world with as little money to his name as possible. If Nadazhda and Vera don't stop her, no one will. But separating their addled and annoyingly lecherous dad from his new love will prove to be no easy feat - Valentina is a ruthless pro and the two sisters swiftly realize that they are mere amateurs when it comes to ruthlessness. As Hurricane Valentina turns the family house upside down, old secrets come falling out, including the most deeply buried one of them all, from the War, the one that explains much about why Nadazhda and Vera are so different. In the meantime, oblivious to it all, their father carries on with the great work of his dotage, a grand history of the tractor.

Power interruptions of the scale of the North American Blackout of 2003 are rare, but they still loom as a possibility. Will the aging infrastructure fail because
deregulated monopolies have no financial incentives to upgrade? Is centralized planning becoming subordinate to market forces? "Understanding Electric Utilities and De-Regulation,
Second Edition" provides an updated, non-technical description that sheds light on the nature of the industry and the issues involved in its transition away from a regulated environment.
The book begins by broadly surveying the industry, from a regulated utility structure to the major concepts of de-regulation to the history of electricity, the technical aspects, and the
business of power.
Then, the authors delve into the technologies and functions on which the industry operates; the many ways that power is used; and the various means of
power generation, including central generating stations, renewable energy, and single-household size generators. The authors then devote considerable attention to the details of
regulation and de-regulation. To conclude, one new chapter examines aging infrastructures and reliability of service, while another explores the causes of blackouts and how they can
Based on the authors' extensive experience, this edition offers an up-to-date perspective on the major issues impacting the daily operations as well as the
long-term future of the electric utilities industry.

Rudolph Peters' book is about crimes and their punishments as laid down in Islamic law. In recent years some of the more fundamentalist regimes, such as those of Iran, Pakistan, Sudan and the northern states of Nigeria have reintroduced Islamic law in place of western criminal codes. Peters gives a detailed account of the classical doctrine and traces the enforcement of criminal law from the Ottoman period to the present day. The accounts of actual cases which range from theft, banditry, murder, fornication and apostasy shed light on the complexities of the law, and the sensitivity and perspicacity of the qadis who implemented it. This is the first single-authored account of both the theory and practice of Islamic criminal law. It will be invaluable for students, and scholars in the field, as well as for professionals looking for comprehensive coverage of the topic.

integration, such as in trade and economics generally, in financial matters, and in social provisions relating to the movement of people; the negotiation of the two sets of bilateral accords
which presently structure Swiss relations with the Union; and, the EU response and the prospects for future Swiss-EU relations. "Switzerland and the European Union" will appeal to

Everything from fur, gowns, dresses, and suits; work clothes, shoes, and even the undergarments are covered in this volume! Glorious hats, smart and chic gloves, and other accessories can be found here as well. The slim silhouette was the "look" for women during this time. These styles focused on feminine curves by way of figure-hugging gowns, dresses, skirts, and sweaters. Fur, whether a coat, wrap, or stole, was a must-have for women of this time. Fashion followed what was worn in Hollywood. Sportswear for women was influenced by a more masculine style. Sport suits, leather jackets, and middy slacks became popular. Men wore swanky suits, and new styles were bursting forth in this new era. The double-breasted jacket became popular in the 1930s, and suits were tailored with squared shoulders to give the visual effect of a larger torso. The tennis/sport shoe became popular during this this time, thanks to Hollywoods adopting this fashion. Hats for men and women were worn to stylishly complement their ensembles. Take a look at the fashions of yesteryear that were declared "fashionable" by the actors and actresses in Hollywood and designers in New York.

|9780300108279 Ekserdjian Parmigianino Yale University Press |
Parmigianino (1503--1540) was one of the Italian Renaissance's great geniuses. Characterized by a distinctive and elegant style and exquisite draftsmanship, he was also one of the first painter-etchers, engraving his own work and disseminating it throughout Italy and northern Europe. This beautiful volume, the definitive work on Parmigianino, focuses on both the public world of his paintings and the private realm of his drawings. It encompasses the latest research and takes full advantage of recent cleanings and restorations of the artist's major works. David Ekserdjian, a leading authority on Parmigianino, draws on more than twenty years of research on the artist to consider his entire oeuvre--paintings, drawings,and prints. The book contains several unpublished drawings and a new painting, and it brings together for the first time the new paintings and drawings that have been discovered and published in recent years, some by Ekserdjian himself. The author discusses these works in the context of the artist's career and development, demonstrating the extraordinary extent of Parmigianino's creative powers.

|9780521865029 Edited by Da The Political Economy of Power Sector Reform Cambridge Academ |
Over the last fifteen years the world's largest developing countries have initiated market reforms in their electric power sectors from generation to distribution. This book evaluates the experiences of five of those countries - Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa - as they have shifted from state-dominated systems to schemes allowing for a larger private sector role. As well as having the largest power systems in their regions and among the most rapidly rising consumption of electricity in the world, these countries are the locus of massive financial investment and the effects of their power systems are increasingly felt in world fuel markets. In-depth case studies also reveal important variations in reform efforts. This accessible volume explains the origins of these reform efforts and offers a theory as to why - despite diverse backgrounds - reform efforts in all five countries have stalled in similar ways.

|9780521600484 Kathy Bowrey Law and Internet Cultures Cambridge Academ |
This book raises the profile of socio-political questions about the global technology and information market. It is a close study of communication flows, networks, nodes, biopolitics and the fragmentations of power. It brings to life the role played by personalities, corporate interactions, industry compromises and the regulatory incompetencies, affecting the technological world we all live in. US technology powers the internet and disseminates American culture on an unprecedented scale. Assessing this power requires an analysis of the diffuse ways that US practice, policy and law dominates, and a consideration of how influence is negotiated and resisted locally. This involves a discussion about how ideas about trade and innovation circulate; of the social power of engineers that establish conventions and protocols; of the reach of Leviathan corporations; and questions about global marketing and consumer tastes. For readers interested in intellectual property law, information technology, cultural studies, globalisation and mass communications.
|9780521710664 M. Bacon 3-D Seismic Interpretation Cambridge Academ |

This new paperback edition includes an extra appendix presenting new material on novel acquisition design, pore pressure prediction from seismic velocity, elastic impedance inversion, and time lapse seismics. Written by professional geophysicists with many years’ experience in the oil industry, the book is indispensable for geoscientists using 3-D seismic data, including graduate students and new entrants into the petroleum industry.
|9780521843225 Zoltan J. Ac Entrepreneurship, Geography, and American Economic Growth Cambridge Academ |
The spillovers in knowledge among largely college-educated workers were among the key reasons for the impressive degree of economic growth and spread of entrepreneurship in the United States during the 1990s. Prior ‘industrial policies’ in the 1970s and 1980s did not advance growth because these were based on outmoded large manufacturing models. Zoltan Acs and Catherine Armington use a knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship to explain new firm formation rates in regional economies during the 1990s period and beyond. The fastest growing regions are those that have the highest rates of new firm formation, and which are not dominated by large businesses. The authors also find support for the thesis that knowledge spillovers move across industries and are not confined within a single industry. As a result, they suggest, regional policies to encourage and sustain growth should focus on entrepreneurship among other factors.
|9780262134200 Miranda, Mar Applied Computational Economics and Finance Wiley |
This book presents a variety of computational methods used to solve dynamic problems in economics and finance. It emphasises practical numerical methods
rather than mathematical proofs and focuses on techniques that apply directly to economic analyses. The examples are drawn from a wide range of subspecialties of economics and
finance, with particular emphasis on problems in agricultural and resource economics, macroeconomics, and finance.
The book's Web site provides an extensive Web-site
library of computer utilities and demonstration programs. The book is divided into two parts. The first part develops basic numerical methods, including linear and nonlinear equation
methods, complementarity methods, finite-dimensional optimisation, numerical integration and differentiation, and function approximation.
The second part presents methods for
solving dynamic stochastic models in economics and finance, including dynamic programming, rational expectations, and arbitrage pricing models in discrete and continuous time. The
book uses MATLAB to illustrate the algorithms and includes a utilities toolbox to help readers develop their own computational economics applications. The book's Web site can be
found at .

|9781847205988 Dahan Secured Transactions Reform and Access to Credit Edward Elgar Publishers |
Secured transactions reform, also known as collateral or pledge law reform, is increasingly seen as an important building block for economic development. The
commonly held view is that the availability and cost of credit, as well as the efficiency of the market for secured credit, are directly influenced by the laws affecting secured transactions
and their implementation. However, there is still a lot of confusion about this relatively obscure and technical area of the law and its role in promoting access to credit and economic
This collection of essays gives for the first time a truly comprehensive and cutting-edge view of the subject - from both a legal and economic perspective. It starts at
the macro level of financial systems, moving towards the behaviours of lenders (commercial banks and micro-lenders), policy options for government and the mechanisms of collateral
law reform.By approaching the subject from different angles and experiences, this work advocates an inclusive approach to the subject where all stakeholders' interests can be taken
into account. It addresses the question of what role laws and institutions can play to encourage access to credit.
This book will be of primary interest to those involved in
economic development and the interaction between law and economics, either for practical reasons (e.g. working on reform or providing advice on investment in transition economies)
or for research purposes.

ABOUT THIS BOOK
With their most treacherous mission yet behind them, heroes Seregil and Alec resume their double life as dissolute nobles and master spies. But in a world of rivals and charmers, fate has a different plan.…
After their victory in Aurenen, Alec and Seregil have returned home to Rhiminee. But with most of their allies dead or exiled, it is difficult for them to settle in. Hoping for diversion, they accept an assignment that will take them back to Seregil’s homeland. En route, however, they are ambushed and separated, and both are sold into slavery. Clinging to life, Seregil is sustained only by the hope that Alec is alive.
But it is not Alec’s life his strange master wants—it is his blood. For his unique lineage is capable of producing a rare treasure, but only through a harrowing process that will test him body and soul and unwittingly entangle him and Seregil in the realm of alchemists and madmen—and an enigmatic creature that may hold their very destiny in its inhuman hands…. But will it prove to be savior or monster?

|9780300102864 Lightbown Carlo Crivelli Yale University Press |
Carlo Crivelli (c. 1430 - 1495) is a painter whose individuality of style and mastery of powerful line have fascinated many, but whose life and art have remained
enigmatic. This absorbing book, produced after much research in Venice and the Marches, the region of central Italy that Crivelli dominated artistically from 1468 until his death in 1495,
examines his paintings in depth, tracing the fundamental influences of the Vivarini, of Squarcione and Mantegna, and later of Flemish art.
It also identifies them as projections
of a society that enclosed them in a strangely dramatic world, with its motley pattern of fiercely republican communes and feudal lordships, of refined humanism and simple popular
devotion. The Marches were a stronghold of the Franciscans and of their extreme heretical wing the Fraticelli, and the book sets Crivelli's art within a religious world in which a profound
faith was nourished by sainted friars and by visions and miracles. Ronald Lightbown, the eminent historian of Italian Renaissance art, has written a book that is the first to expose
systematically the reasons that led to the choice by patrons of the saints figured in Crivelli's altarpieces; some of their devotional programmes acquire an unexpected human urgency
when set in relation to their place and time.
It also examines the initiations of new cults, and the devising of an iconography for them and the authenticity of portraiture are
among the problems it illuminates. The symbolism that Crivelli used with his exquisite skill in his still-life pictures is studied and explained, and its independence of clerical dictation
demonstrated. By interweaving stylistic and iconographical analysis with historical and cultural background, a world is revealed in which the divine beauty of heaven, as reflected in
Crivelli's exquisite art, responds to the spiritual anxieties and pleas of a whole society, in both its ecclesiastical and secular m
mbership, speaking to all, from simple rustics to learned theologians and humanist courts.

Usually classified as a `problem comedy', All's Well that Ends Well invites a fresh assessment. Its psychologically disturbing presentation of an aggressive, designing woman and a reluctant husband wooed by trickery won it little favour in earlier centuries, and both directors and critics have frequently tried to avoid or simplify its uncomfortable elements. More recently, several distinguished productions have revealed it as an exceptionally penetrating study of both
personal and social issues.

|9780500277744 Dormer The New Jewelry (Revd Ed) Pb Thames & Hudson |
Jewellery has come alive again. 20 years ago a mere handful of designers in Europe and America were fighting the cliches of conventional design. Today there has been, in Ralph Turner's words, a "burgeoning of many kinds of ornament". Comprehensively revised and updated to incorporate the challenging work of the late 1980s and the 1990s, this book now presents in three sections the very latest examples of contemporary inventiveness. Mainstream abstract jewellery encompasses the diversity of modern ornament; whilst contemporary figurative jewellery is made by artists who sculpt and model in precious metals or everyday materials; and today's "jewellery as theatre" features radical workers and their controversial "wearables". Recent trends are given a special section of their own.

|9780789202178 Alex Orloff St. Petersburg Abbeville Press |
Before becoming a city, St. Petersburg was a utopian vision in the mind of its founder, Peter the Great. Conceived by him as Russia's "window to the West," it evolved into a remarkably harmonious assemblage of baroque, rococo, neoclassical, and art nouveau buildings that reflect his taste and that of his successors, including Anna I, Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great, and Paul I.
Crisscrossed by rivers and canals, this "Venice of the North," as Goethe dubbed it, is of unique beauty. Never before has that beauty been captured as eloquently as on the pages of this sumptuous volume. From the stately mansions lining the fabled Nevsky Prospekt to the magnificent palaces of the tsars on the outskirts of the city, including Peterhof, Tsarskoe Selo, Oranienbaum, Gatchina, and Pavlovsk, photographer Alexander Orloff's portrait of St. Petersburg does full justice to the vision of its founder and namesake. The text, by art historian Dmitri Shvidkovsky, chronicles the history of the city's planning and construction from Peter the Great's time to the reign of the last tsar, Nicholas II. Anyone who has ever visited--or dreamed of visiting--the city of "white nights" will find St. Petersburg irresistible.

|9780738203218 Ross Living Dangerously Perseus |
Why understanding the numbers behind our personal and collective decisions is essential to surviving in a complex world.. From cholesterol to cancer, asteroids to AIDS, we face more risks than our grandparents ever dreamed of. But most of us are 200 years behind the curve when it comes to making intelligent risk-based decisions: We refuse to fly, but dont wear seat belts in our far more dangerous cars. We panic about toxic waste dumps, but collectively smoke a billion cigarettes a year. In this entertaining and enlightening look at risk in the modern age, John Ross argues that the burgeoning science of risk assessment has given us powerful new tools to cope in a complex world, if we could only learn how to speak the language. Ross examines the building blocks of this new language, and helps us identify and relinquish long-held, often pre-set, biological and psychological responses to risk. Through vivid stories and compelling science, Ross empowers us to take control of our lives and to exercise our most basic democratic freedomthe power to make our own decisionsboth as individuals and as a society.

|9783764366179 Feireiss K Andre Poitiers Birkhauser Verlag AG |
This young German architect contributes to the current debate in modern architecture with his innovative designs. Andre Poitiers' adventure in design has been one of experimentation, an experimentation in which he has pursued difficult objectives and pushed himself to the edge of known territory. The expertise is there, acquired in the studio of Norman Foster, but his dream has invaded the territory of architecture and generated intentionally provocative figures. Poitiers picked his own, original way, driven by futuristic and iconoclastic impetus. Technology and New Pop seem to have been the hardware and software of his path. The most recent goal on Poitiers' journey is Plasma, the liquid, organic and living material, liable to alter in relation to functional and environmental factors. Poitiers' unusual and individual approach to designing is reflected in the graphics and presentation of the book.
