Which mathematician elaborated a crucial concept the night before he died in a duel? Who funded his maths and medical career through gambling and chess? Who learned maths from her wallpaper? Ian Stewart presents the extraordinary lives and amazing discoveries of twenty-five of history's greatest mathematicians from Archimedes and Liu Hui to Benoit Mandelbrot and William Thurston. His subjects are the inspiring individuals from all over the world who have made crucial contributions to mathematics. They include the rediscovered geniuses Srinivasa Ramanujan and Emmy Noether, alongside the towering figures of Muhammad al-Khwarizmi (inventor of the algorithm), Pierre de Fermat, Isaac Newton, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky, Bernhard Reimann (precursor to Einstein), Henri Poincar, Ada Lovelace (arguably the first computer programmer), Kurt Gdel and Alan Turing. Ian Stewart's vivid accounts are fascinating in themselves and, taken together, cohere into a riveting history of key steps in the development of mathematics.

Μάιος του 1937. Ένας τριαντάρης περιμένει δίπλα στον ανελκυστήρα μιας πολυκατοικίας του Λένινγκραντ. Περιμένει όλη τη νύχτα ότι ανά πάσα στιγμή θα τον οδηγήσουν στο Αρχηγείο της Υπηρεσίας Κρατικής Ασφάλειας. Καμιά από τις διασημότητες που γνώρισε την περασμένη δεκαετία δεν μπορεί τώρα να του φανεί χρήσιμη. Και ελάχιστοι από όσους οδηγούνται στο Αρχηγείο επιστρέφουν. Αυτή είναι η αφετηρία του νέου αριστουργηματικού μυθιστορήματος του Μπαρνς, μια ιστορία για τη σύγκρουση ζωής και τέχνης, το θάρρος, τη δειλία, και τον πόνο του αναπόφευκτου συμβιβασμού. Το βιβλίο αναφέρεται στη ζωή, το έργο του Ντμίτρι Σοστακόβιτς καθώς και στη σύγκρουσή του με το σταλινικό καθεστώς.

The field of public administration holds social equity and inclusiveness as a core administrative value, but African American voices in the discourse about the theory and practice of public administration have been ignored all too often. This book is the first to formally chronicle the evolution of the field of public administration in the United States through desegregation, equal opportunity, affirmative action, diversity/multiculturalism, and presumptions about a "post-racial" society, incorporating African American contributions to public policy-making and implementation at every stage. As long as the "post-racial" America myth continues to influence the design, development, and implementation of public policies, African American perspectives need to be reconsidered as a legitimate and important focus of public administration’s theoretical and practical framework. Focusing on the lives and profound contributions of several unsung but seminal African American public administrators, accompanied by personal accounts of perseverance and detailed descriptions of unique approaches used for social change, this book demonstrates the intellectual, academic, and pragmatic evolution of these leaders as they built careers in their discipline and blazed the trail for those to come. Authors Beverly C. Edmond and Ron W. Finnell demonstrate how these pioneers extended the very definition of the enterprise of public administration through their movements between the intersecting worlds of academia, practice, social movements, and community activism. Trailblazing African American Public Administrators serves as a timely practical, social, and historical teaching text for graduate and undergraduate courses in Public Administration, Public Management, Public Affairs, and Human Resource Management.

Comprehensive, succinct, and applied, HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFE-SPAN VIEW has proven its ability to capture students' interest while introducing them to the issues, forces, and outcomes that make us who we are.

J. B. S. Haldane (1892-1964) was one of the most brilliant of British scientists - and one of the most controversial. A trail-blazing geneticist and physiologist, who used himself as his own guinea-pig, he was also a highly successful populariser of science, a dedicated Marxist, and a devotee of Hindu culture. His private life was often tempestuous: early in his career he was sacked from his Cambridge post after being cited in a divorce case - but reinstated on appeal; and his relations with scientific colleagues and the political establishment were normally acrimonious. Haldane's most important scientific research, on the mathematical basis of evolutionary theory, was done at University College London. Towards the end of his life he founded the Genetics and Biometry Laboratory at Bhubaneswar in India having become an Indian citizen in 1960. In writing this definitive biography, Ronald Clark was able to draw upon Haldane's private papers, as well as the reminiscences of the great man's friends (and enemies). Mr. Clark has written extensively on scientists and the application of science to modern life. His books include major biographies of Einstein and Freud.

Against the Gods sets up an ambitious premise and then delivers on it." -Business Week "Deserves to be, and surely will be, widely read." -The Economist "[A] challenging book, one that may change forever the way people think about the world." -Worth "No one else could have written a book of such central importance with so much charm and excitement." -Robert Heilbroner author, The Worldly Philosophers "With his wonderful knowledge of the history and current manifestations of risk, Peter Bernstein brings us Against the Gods. Nothing like it will come out of the financial world this year or ever. I speak carefully: no one should miss it." -John Kenneth Galbraith Professor of Economics Emeritus, Harvard University In this unique exploration of the role of risk in our society, Peter Bernstein argues that the notion of bringing risk under control is one of the central ideas that distinguishes modern times from the distant past.

On December 21, 2012, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, a 5,125-year cycle calendar system pioneered by the Maya, will come to an end. At the same time, the earth, the sun, and the center of the galaxy will come together in an extremely rare cosmic alignment. More and more people believe that the world as we know it will experience a transformation in 2012, but few are aware of the complete history or significance of the date. John Major Jenkins, among the most authoritative voices of the 2012 movement, has written a definitive explanation of one of the most thought-provoking phenomena of our time. Drawing from his own groundbreaking research (including his involvement in the modern reconstruction of Mayan 2012 cosmology) and more than two decades of extensive study of Mayan culture, Jenkins has created the crucial guide to understanding the story of 2012—an essential overview of the history, theory, cultures, and personalities that have brought this extraordinary idea into modern awareness. Jenkins provides illuminating answers to some of the most-asked questions about 2012, including: - How did the early Maya devise the calendar that gives us the cycle ending in 2012, and how does it work? - How did the calendar come to be rediscovered and reconstructed in our era? - What controversies and intrigues surround the topic, and what do scholars and researchers have to say about them? - How can we cut through all the noise about 2012 and gain true wisdom from the Mayan teachings about this moment?

«Γυρίζοντας το φάκελο απ’ την άλλη μεριά, με χέρια που έτρεμαν, ο Χάρι είδε πως ήταν κλεισμένος με μια σφραγίδα από κόκκινο κερί, η οποία είχε ένα περίεργο έμβλημα: ένα λιοντάρι, έναν αετό, ένα σκαντζόχοιρο κι ένα φίδι, πλαισιωμένα από ένα κεφαλαίο Χ». Ο Χάρι Πότερ δεν ήξερε τίποτα για το Χόγκουαρτς όταν τα γράμματα άρχισαν να πέφτουν βροχή στο χαλάκι της εισόδου, στο σπίτι της οδού Πρίβετ 4. Η διεύθυνση είναι γραμμένη με πράσινο μελάνι επάνω σε κίτρινη περγαμηνή και είναι κλεισμένα με μια σφραγίδα από κόκκινο κερί. Η απαίσια θεία κι ο θείος του Χάρι του τα παίρνουν αμέσως. Τότε, στα ενδέκατα γενέθλια του Χάρι, εισβάλει ο Ρούμπεους Χάγκριντ ένας γίγαντας με γελαστά μάτια που έχει να του πει εκπληκτικά νέα: Ο Χάρι Πότερ είναι μάγος και η θέση του στη Σχολή για Μαγεία και Ξόρκια Χόγκουαρτς τον περιμένει. Μια απίστευτη περιπέτεια ξεκινά!
