Description : This volume is a comprehensive collection of critical essays on The Taming of the Shrew, and includes extensive discussions of the play's various printed versions and its theatrical productions. Aspinall has included only those essays that offer the most influential and controversial arguments surrounding the play. The issues discussed include gender, authority, female autonomy and unruliness, courtship and marriage, language and speech, and performance and theatricality.
Description : Interest in solvent-free adhesives is increasing because of environmental concerns about the use of solvent containing adhesives and the subsequent need to decrease or eliminate solvent use. In this report adhesives are classified by the type of chemistry of the adhesive rather than the mode of application or the end-use. An additional indexed section containing several hundred abstracts from the Rapra Polymer Library database provides useful references for further reading.
Description : This volume offers a coherent account of the concepts that underlie different approaches devised for the determination of free energies. It provides insight into the theoretical and computational foundations of the subject and presents relevant applications from molecular-level modeling and simulations of chemical and biological systems. The book is aimed at a broad readership of graduate students and researchers.
Description : This book presents recent developments in systematic studies of hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer in laminar free convection, accelerating film boiling and condensation of Newtonian fluids, as well as accelerating film flow of non-Newtonian power-law fluids (FFNF). A novel system of analysis models is provided with a developed velocity component method and a system of models for treatment of variable thermophysical properties is presented.
Description : Butterfield, an ex-Amway distributor, dissects the dynamics of this "Free Enterprise" empire with an insider's insight.
Description : The worldwide trend toward lead-free components and soldering is especially urgent in the European Union with the implementation strict new standards in July 2006, and with pending implementation of laws in China and California. This book provides a standard reference guide for engineers who must meet the new regulations, including a broad collection of techniques for lead-free soldering design and manufacture, which up to now have been scattered in difficult-to-find scholarly sources.
