Description : Volume eight: New aliens, old adversaries, and planetary disasters confront Enterprise. The loyalty of the Bridge crew to Kirk is tested when Sulu and Chekov, labeled traitors, are helped by Dr. McCoy and Scotty, along with Kirk, Spock, and Klingon commander Kang, to bring the real traitors to justice. Kirk faces a Dohlman and with Uhura's help everts a war and establishes the true Dohlman on the throne. Kirk is sorely tested by the joy machine created by a planet seeking unbounded joy if one gives control to the machine. Enterprise and crew, thrown back in time during military maneuvers, discover their home planet never evolved humans. A landing team must stop a group of Ru determined to destroy the asteroid that changed the evolutionary line of earth. New comrades come from the future seeking help against the suffocating control of the Consilium. Enterprise meets new aliens: the Tauteans who nearly destroy themselves in the search for unlimited energy; the Rimillians facing a civil uprising as one group attempts to re-start their planet's spin; Furies, a dedicated group of new aliens, who threaten the Klingon Empire; and the yagghorth, a radiation-sensitive alien. Dr. McCoy faces the news of an unknown daughter while Sulu embraces the daughter he didn't know he fathered. An aging Kirk, called upon to witness the launch of a new hospital ship, which he fears will be disastrous as it has no captain, finds his fears confirmed. Deciding he doesn't want to grow old and give up adventuring in space, Kirk agrees to help the planet Chal.

Description : Handbook of Convex Geometry, Volume B offers a survey of convex geometry and its many ramifications and connections with other fields of mathematics, including convexity, lattices, crystallography, and convex functions. The selection first offers information on the geometry of numbers, lattice points, and packing and covering with convex sets. Discussions focus on packing in non-Euclidean spaces, problems in the Euclidean plane, general convex bodies, computational complexity of lattice point problem, centrally symmetric convex bodies, reduction theory, and lattices and the space of lattices. The text then examines finite packing and covering and tilings, including plane tilings, monohedral tilings, bin packing, and sausage problems. The manuscript takes a look at valuations and dissections, geometric crystallography, convexity and differential geometry, and convex functions. Topics include differentiability, inequalities, uniqueness theorems for convex hypersurfaces, mixed discriminants and mixed volumes, differential geometric characterization of convexity, reduction of quadratic forms, and finite groups of symmetry operations. The selection is a dependable source of data for mathematicians and researchers interested in convex geometry.

Description : Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

Description : This volume in honour of Michael Halliday begins with a section on the background to the development of MAK’s ideas. The second section groups papers on language development in early childhood, which has always been one of Halliday’s main interests. The focus of the third section is on aspects of synchronic and diachronic change in language. Halliday has always emphasised the dynamic interaction between these two perspectives in relation to language use in social contexts. The final section caters to Halliday’s interest in ethnographic, anthropological and educational issues and explore language use in a diversity of world contexts.

Description : Based on the authors' work at the prestigious PENN Council for Relationships (formerly the Marriage Council of Philadelphia), this book is their latest volume to focus on marriage and couples therapy using the Intersystem Model, which assesses and treats couples' problems from individual, interactional, and intergenerational perspectives. The book addresses the most common problems confronting contemporary marital relationship therapists: commitment, intimacy, anger, and conflict. The authors also address the complexities relating to the treatment of depression in conjoint therapy: addictions and extramarital sexuality, marital adjustments to life changes associated with aging, and problems of inhibited sexual desire, while including the often difficult task of instilling hope in the therapeutic process. In each chapter, the authors balance the theoretical and practical, providing the clinician with a solid conceptual background as well as effective techniques for resolving the problems that occur so often in couples therapy. And the book does not stop with problem resolution; it also suggests ways for couples to move toward a higher level of functioning and personal growth.

Description : From Ishmael Reed and Toni Morrison to Colson Whitehead and Terry McMillan, Darryl Dickson-Carr offers a definitive guide to contemporary African American literature. This volume-the only reference work devoted exclusively to African American fiction of the last thirty-five years-presents a wealth of factual and interpretive information about the major authors, texts, movements, and ideas that have shaped contemporary African American fiction. In more than 160 concise entries, arranged alphabetically, Dickson-Carr discusses the careers, works, and critical receptions of Alice Walker, Gloria Naylor, Jamaica Kincaid, Charles Johnson, John Edgar Wideman, Leon Forrest, as well as other prominent and lesser-known authors. Each entry presents ways of reading the author's works, identifies key themes and influences, assesses the writer's overarching significance, and includes sources for further research. Dickson-Carr addresses the influence of a variety of literary movements, critical theories, and publishers of African American work. Topics discussed include the Black Arts Movement, African American postmodernism, feminism, and the influence of hip-hop, the blues, and jazz on African American novelists. In tracing these developments, Dickson-Carr examines the multitude of ways authors have portrayed the diverse experiences of African Americans. The Columbia Guide to Contemporary African American Fiction situates African American fiction in the social, political, and cultural contexts of post-Civil Rights era America: the drug epidemics of the 1980s and 1990s and the concomitant "war on drugs," the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, the struggle for gay rights, feminism, the rise of HIV/AIDS, and racism's continuing effects on African American communities. Dickson-Carr also discusses the debates and controversies regarding the role of literature in African American life. The volume concludes with an extensive annotated bibliography of African American fiction and criticism.

Description : In the past twenty-five years many Native American writers have retold the traditional stories of powerful mythological women: Corn Woman, Changing Woman, Serpent Woman, and Thought Woman, who with her sisters created all life by thinking it into being. Within and in response to these evolving traditions, Leslie Marmon Silko takes from her own tradition, the Keres of Laguna, the Yellow Woman. Yellow Woman stories, always female-centered and always from the Yellow Woman's point of view, portray a figure who is adventurous, strong, and often alienated from her own people. She is the spirit of woman. Ambiguous and unsettling, Silko's "Yellow Woman" explores one woman's desires and changes--her need to open herself to a richer sensuality. Walking away from her everyday identity as daughter, wife and mother, she takes possession of transgressive feelings and desires by recognizing them in the stories she has heard, by blurring the boundaries between herself and the Yellow Woman of myth. Silko's decision to tell the story from the narrator's point of view is traditional, but her use of first person narration and the story's much raised ambiguity brilliantly reinforce her themes. Like traditional yellow women, the narrator is unnamed. By choosing not to reveal her name, she claims the role of Yellow Woman, and Yellow Woman's story is the one Silko clearly claims as her own. The essays in this collection compare Silko's many retellings of Yellow Woman stories from a variety of angles, looking at crucial themes like storytelling, cultural inheritances, memory, continuity, identity, interconnectedness, ritual, and tradition. This casebook includes an introduction by the editor, a chronology, an authoritative text of the story itself, critical essays, and a bibliography for further reading in both primary and secondary sources. Contributors include Kim Barnes, A. LaVonne Ruoff, Paula Gunn Allen, Patricia Clark Smith, Bernard A. Hirsch, Arnold Krupat, Linda Danielson, and Patricia Jones.
