Описание: Twentieth-century Brazilian furniture design is perhaps the last great largely unknown tradition of modernism, characterized by rich and sensually textured hardwoods and an ingenuity, grace, and simplicity that exemplify the national character of "brasiliadade." With well over 400 historic images and new photography, "Brazil Modern: The Rediscovery of Twentieth-Century Brazilian Furniture" surveys the history and legacy of this innovative design tradition. Featuring the work of the titans of Brazilian design Lina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, Joaquim Tenreiro, and Sergio Rodrigues as well as numerous designers whose work and reputations only recently reached foreign shores, "Brazil Modern" is the first comprehensive guide to this untapped vein of modernist design."

The latest in Qiu Xiaolong's critically-acclaimed series about crime in modern China, featuring Shanghai Police Chief Inspector Cao
Chief Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai Police Department is in an unusual situation--a poet by training and inclination, he was assigned by the party to the Police Department after he graduated college, where he has continued to shine. Now he's a rising cadre in the party, in line to take over the top politic position in the police department, while being one of most respected policeman in the department. Which is why he's brought in by the Party to sign off on the investigation into the death of Zhou Keng. Zhou Keng--a trusted princeling, son of a major party member--was head of the Shanghai Housing Development Committee when a number of his corrupt practices were exposed on the internet. Removed from his position and placed into extra-legal detention, Zhou apparently hanged himself while under guard. While the Party is anxious to have Zhou's death declared a suicide, and for the renowned Chief Inspector Chen to sign off on that conclusion, the sequence of events don't quite add up. Now Chen will have to decide what to do - investigate the death as a possible homicide and risk angering unseen powerful people, or seek the justice that his position requires him to strive for. Qiu Xiaolong's Enigma of China is one of Publishers Weekly's Best Mystery/Thriller Books of 2013

In semiconductor manufacturing, understanding how various materials behave and interact is critical to making a reliable and robust semiconductor package. Semiconductor Packaging: Materials Interaction and Reliability provides a fundamental understanding of the underlying physical properties of the materials used in a semiconductor package.
The book focuses on an important step in semiconductor manufacturing--package assembly and testing. It covers the basics of material properties and explains how to determine which behaviors are important to package performance. The authors also discuss how the properties of packaging materials interact with each another and explore how to maximize the performance of these materials in regard to package integrity and reliability.
By tying together the disparate elements essential to a semiconductor package, this easy-to-read book shows how all the parts fit and work together to provide durable protection for the integrated circuit chip within as well as a means for the chip to communicate with the outside world.

Описание: Cognitive function is crucial to human beings right across the life course. Developed in an early age, cognitive function is influenced by environmental factors, changing over time. This book has reviewed and updated some areas on cognitive development, processes and challenges. Across 11 chapters, the book covers topics ranging from theory explorations to original studies in the real world. This book offers important insight into a theoretical understanding of the basic cognitive processes involved in the generation of new knowledge and ways in which to promote the development of learning and semantic memory. Cognitive development and its relation to emotional development is examined, and how traditional and current theories of cognitive development provide a framework for understanding the development of emotional processing in children. Childrens conceptual development and cross-classification theories have been reviewed, particularly examining how children use classification, the ability to group items into categories, to structure the world into meaningful units. The effects of different parent-child activities on early literacy have been examined with a discussion on the contribution of different parent-child dyadic activities at home in promoting skills that pave the way to reading and spelling acquisition. On determining the relations among parenting, socio-emotional engagement, shared practices, language and perspective taking skills, new data shows that constructivist approaches provide a powerful way to investigate the development of childrens social cognition. They also indicate that maternal factors and mother-child shared practices facilitate a childs mastery of sentential complements, conversation skill, and explicit perspective taking skills. In particular, this book has explored the face-inversion effect in children, with new perspectives indicating that expert face processing mechanisms are only employed for the recognition of faces from the age of 10, but inexpert mechanisms were employed prior to this age.
