Peering into Advanced Mathematics Through Sage-Colored Glasses
Technology has become an indispensable aspect of most mathematics education. This is a BLACK-AND-WHITE edition of our full-color textbook; it contains the same abundance of graphics, algorithms, and assignments to introduce Sage, a free, open-source computer algebra system, and to reinforce important mathematical ideas of undergraduate mathematics, including some that a transitioning student will not yet have seen. This book should be useful for any situation where an individual is moving from high school mathematics, in which we include basic calculus, to university mathematics, which includes intermediate calculus and a lot of stuff besides, and is willing to experiment with a computer. You miss out on the color, but it costs less.

Fuzzy Logic Applications in Engineering Science
Fuzzy logic is a relatively new concept in science applications. Hitherto, fuzzy logic has been a conceptual process applied in the field of risk management. Its potential applicability is much wider than that, however, and its particular suitability for expanding our understanding of processes and information in science and engineering in our post-modern world is only just beginning to be appreciated. Written as a companion text to the author's earlier volume An Introduction to Fuzzy Logic Applications , the book is aimed at professional engineers and students and those with an interest in exploring the potential of fuzzy logic as an information processing kit with a wide variety of practical applications in the field of engineering science and develops themes and topics introduced in the author's earlier text.

Soldiers Pocket Book
Soldiers Pocket Book by John Harris & Rupert Godesen Soldiers Pocket Book has updated becoming the 11th edition of the publication. The concept of the book remains the same, namely, an aide memoire for regular and reserve soldiers covering the basics of kit, weapons, webbing packing, Bergan packing, first aid, military law and duties. The book is clearly arranged into chapters breaking the knowledge contained into well laid out and digestible sections. There is much that is not covered in the book and obviously it is not an alternative to phase 1 training but it certainly would be of benefit to someone at the end of phase 1 or to a reservist. Perhaps its strongest effect may be in helping reduce skill fade over time. The most interesting section, for me, is the discussion about duty, loyalty, and discipline. These are all very unfashionably terms in today's society, as the authors quickly point out, but they are also part of why you are reading this review now. If you have ever been in the services you are, by definition, rather unfashionable in today's civil focused world but have a deep understanding of duty, loyalty and discipline whether you like it or not. Throughout the book's updating new diagrams and colour images covering the latest vehicles in service, with a simple note on each vehicle. There are also tips on the purchase of the type of shiny object which will make a soldier's life easier such as collapsible rubber drinking mugs. One section that I cannot recommend strongly enough is map reading. A beautiful summary of everything anyone could ever need to navigate with a map in all climates and conditions. The explanations are in simple, clear terms are used and the result is a easily understood explanation of a subject which so many find hard to understand. Other areas covered which are of use outside the defined world of the army are the sections on personal security especially when travelling and first aid making this book a valuable pocket resource at both work and play. With several sister publications from the same publisher such as the Army Cadets Pocket Book, Military Pocket Books team have carved themselves a defined space in the specialist publishing world providing high quality books for demanding audiences.

Ethics & Biotechnology
The development of biotechnology has produced nothing short of a revolution, both in our capacity to manipulate living things from single plant cells to human nature itself, but also to manufacture brand new life forms. This power to shape and create forms of life has sometimes been described as the power to play God and this book is about the ethics of playing God in the field of biotechnology. International scholars cover moral dilemmas posed by biotechnology, from the smallest cells through animals to the engineering of human beings.

The Social Work Business
Social work has become a business. The traditional distinction drawn between social work as a non-commercial activity in the public and voluntary sectors of the welfare state and private commercial activities driven by the market's profit motive has largely disappeared. In The Social Work Business John Harris addresses the introduction and consolidation of business thinking and ways of operating in social work and considers the consequences for service users, carers, voluntary organisations and social workers. The book traces the development of the social work business from its establishment under Thatcherism to its modernisation under New Labour. It looks in detail at the use of capitalist sector methods - the heightened use of surveillance, the increase in managerial control, changes in work practices - and how this is being reflected in social work education. The Social Work Business provides a radical reappraisal of the far-reaching changes the profession has undergone. The sources of uneasiness experienced by many social workers, faced with a transformation in the organisational culture in which they work, are thrown into sharp relief and opened up for debate.

The Backpacker
Leaving the blinding sand for the cool shade of the trees, I walked carefully through the undergrowth to where Dave, using two twigs as chopsticks, was picking up a freshly severed human finger... John's trip to India starts badly when he finds himself looking at the sharp end of a knife in a train station cubicle. His life is saved by the enigmatic Rick, who persuades John to abandon his mundane plans for the future for much, much more. Fast forward to the Thai island of Koh Pha-Ngan where they pose as millionaire aristocrats in a hedonistic Eden of beautiful girls, free drugs and wild beach parties. Soon pursued by Thai Mafia, they escape to Indonesia, Australia and Hong Kong, facing danger at every turn. Filled with wild adventures in exotic locations, this is not travel writing for the faint-hearted: this is an amazing true story of the hunt for excess at any cost.

Moon Gardening: Ancient and Natural Ways to Grow Healthier, Tastier Food
This is not your average gardening book. In it you will discover how to increase your crop yield and grow healthier, better tasting food, whilst reducing work in your garden and forking out less on your fertiliser. This seemingly impossible win-win is achieved by planting and reaping in tune with the phases of the moon. Lunar gardening has been around for as long as man has pulled food from the soil. It was practised by the Incas and the Native Americans, and is still followed by the Maoris and rural communities in Eastern Europe. Because it works. But with the mass adoption of fertilisers achieving quicker results for a need-it-now-generation, these techniques have been all but forgotten by the modern gardener. Until now. Head gardener at Cornwall's famous Tresillian Estate, John Harris has researched, studied and put in to practise the principles of gardening by the phases of the moon for more than forty years. The results he's achieved are nothing short of astonishing. He has never watered his garden (even during the drought of 1976), he only grows organically and yet he's won numerous show awards and prizes for the size, abundance and taste of his produce.In The Moon Gardener, he shows you how you can do the same by following a few simple principles. Moon gardening is not some groundless fad. It's been followed for thousands of years with great success. Anyone who's met John Harris knows he's one of the most down-to-earth people you could wish to meet. This book, written in his own inimitable style, is packed full of tips that improve results, anecdotes that inspire and resources you can rely on. Its ultimate aim is to pass on John's treasure trove of horticultural knowledge to future generations, so that we can all get more from our garden. And before you ask, no: moon gardening doesn't mean you have to start digging at night.

HAIL! HAIL! ROCK'N'ROLL is the ultimate guide to what Spinal Tap called 'the majesty of rock, the mystery of roll'. Gloriously irreverent, it is also satisfyingly definitive, with a list of every Glastonbury line-up; a dictionary of obscure genres from Alt.country to Shoegazing; a brutally honest guide to the Beatles' solo albums; the surprising wit and wisdom of Shaun Rider and Noel Gallagher; Bob Dylan's collected thoughts on Christianity and Keith Richards' less-collected thoughts on drugs; and a handy flow chart that shows you how to listen to all of Captain Beefheart's albums without going insane. From essential stage equipment to strange collaborations (Lou Reed and Kiss, anyone?) to the long, tragic journey of the rock moustache, HAIL! HAIL! ROCK'N'ROLL is an endlessly fascinating miscellany from one of the best music writers around.

The Last Party: Britpop, Blair and the demise of English rock
'The loveliest - and certainly the most human - book about pop music I've ever read ...A delightful and humane soap opera, a real page-turner, full of rounded and entirely recognisable characters.' Jon Ronson, Daily Telegraph THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF BRITPOP - BLUR, OASIS, ELASTICA, SUEDE & TONY BLAIR Beginning in 1994 and closing in the first months of 1998, the UK passed through a cultural moment as distinct and as celebrated as any since the war. Founded on rock music, celebrity, boom-time economics and fleeting political optimism - this was 'Cool Britannia'. Records sold in their millions, a new celebrity elite emerged and Tony Blair's Labour Party found itself, at long last, returned to government. Drawing on interviews from all the major bands - including Oasis, Blur, Elastica and Suede - from music journalists, record executives and those close to government, The Last Party charts the rise and fall of the Britpop movement. John Harris was there; and in this gripping new book he argues that the high point of British music's cultural impact also signalled its effective demise - If rock stars were now friends of the government, then how could they continue to matter? Britpop in numbers: *There were an astonishing 2.6 million ticket applications for the Oasis gig at Knebworth in 1996. 1 in 24 of the British public wanted to see them play. In the end the band played to 250,000 fans across two nights with a guest list that ran to 7,000. *'Definitely, Maybe', Oasis's debut album, went straight to No 1, selling 100,000 copies in 4 days and outselling the Three Tenors in second place by a factor of 50% *On its first day in the shops Oasis's second album, 'What's The Story, Morning Glory', was selling at a rate of 2 copies a minute through HMV's London stores. * By 1997 Creation Records (which had been founded 12 years earlier with a bank loan of GBP1,000 by an ex-British Rail Clerk Alan McGee) announced a turnover of GBP36million thanks almost entirely to one band: Oasis.
