Описание: The first-ever collection of essays from across Elizabeth Hardwick's illustrious writing career, including works not seen in print for decades. A New York Times Notable Book of 2017 Elizabeth Hardwick wrote during the golden age of the American literary essay. For Hardwick, the essay was an imaginative endeavor, a serious form, criticism worthy of the literature in question. In the essays collected here she covers civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s, describes places where she lived and locations she visited, and writes about the foundations of American literature--Melville, James, Wharton--and the changes in American fiction, though her reading is wide and international. She contemplates writers' lives--women writers, rebels, Americans abroad--and the literary afterlife of biographies, letters, and diaries. Selected and with an introduction by Darryl Pinckney, the Collected Essays gathers more than fifty essays for a fifty-year retrospective of Hardwick's work from 1953 to 2003. "For Hardwick," writes Pinckney, "the poetry and novels of America hold the nation's history." Here is an exhilarating chronicle of that history.

Описание: The tools and technique used in the Design of Experiments (DOE) have been used around the world to solve seemingly impossible problems in science and engineering. The majority of engineers and scientists have had little exposure to this important technique and this book has been written with the authors 30 years experience in practical design of experiments aimed squarely at practising engineers and scientists rather than statisticians and mathematicians. Practical Design of Experiments takes a graphical approach using a software tool called Minitab. The author concentrates on each step of using the technique with explanations along the way of each decision point. Readers will find this guide both practical and useful, with copious screenshots of the software in use and clear precise explanations. The emphasis is on quantifying the effects of a number of variables before optimising them. Key points: * Provides tools and techniques for practical business and process improvement. * Introduces screenshots and explanations for each step of designing an experiment, carrying out an experiment and then analysing the results. * A worked example, again explained step by step with advice from the author at each step. This book will be extremely useful to engineers and scientists who want to solve quality, process and manufacturing problems quickly and easily. About the Author Colin Hardwick is the leading expert in the practical use of Design of Experiments in the UK. He holds a Masters Degree in Manufacturing Systems from Warwick University and a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sheffield. He has trained people extensively in Design of Experiments and is currently Managing Director of Hardwick Consultants Ltd. A qualified Master Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, he has also worked for other major companies such as Chemring PLC, Rolls-Royce and GEC.
The critically acclaimed author of Serving Victoria brilliantly illuminates the life of the little-known Bess of Hardwick--next to Queen Elizabeth I, the richest and most powerful woman in sixteenth-century England.
Aided by a quartet of judicious marriages and a shrewd head for business, Bess of Hardwick rose from humble beginnings to become one of the most respected and feared Countesses in Elizabethan England--an entrepreneur who built a family fortune, created glorious houses--the last and greatest built as a widow in her 70s--and was deeply involved in matters of the court, including the custody of Mary Queen of Scots.
While Bess cultivated many influential courtiers, she also collected numerous enemies. Her embittered fourth husband once called her a woman of "devices and desires," while nineteenth-century male historians portrayed her as a monster--"a woman of masculine understanding and conduct, proud, furious, selfish and unfeeling." In the twenty-first century she has been neutered by female historians who recast her as a soft-hearted sort, much maligned, and misunderstood. As Kate Hubbard reveals, the truth of this highly accomplished woman lies somewhere in between: ruthless and scheming, Bess was sentimental and affectionate as well.
Hubbard draws on more than 230 of Bess's letters, including correspondence with the Queen and her councilors, fond (and furious) missives between her husbands and children, and notes sharing titillating court gossip. The result is a rich, compelling portrait of a true feminist icon centuries ahead of her time--a complex, formidable, and decidedly modern woman captured in full as never before.
