How they are made? How should you choose one? How do you care for string instruments? What accessories are needed and what do you need to know about them? How do string instruments compare to one another? How does one learn to play? And so much more.

Description : Ecocriticism has emerged as one of the most fascinating and rapidly growing fields of recent literary and cultural studies. From its regional origins in late-twentieth-century Anglo-American academia, it has become a worldwide phenomenon, which involves a decidedly transdisciplinary and transnational paradigm that promises to return a new sense of relevance to research and teaching in the humanities. A distinctive feature of the present handbook in comparison with other survey volumes is the combination of ecocriticism with cultural ecology, reflecting an emphasis on the cultural transformation of ecological processes and on the crucial role of literature, art, and other forms of cultural creativity for the evolution of societies towards sustainable futures. In state-of-the-art contributions by leading international scholars in the field, this handbook maps some of the most important developments in contemporary ecocritical thought. It introduces key theoretical concepts, issues, and directions of ecocriticism and cultural ecology and demonstrates their relevance for the analysis of texts and other cultural phenomena.

Description : Every luthier and every performer has a personal concept of which sound they want from their instruments. To explain how these ideas can be turned in the design of a classical guitar, this book presents theoretical analysis, guidelines and practical indications. The book is meant for luthiers who feel the need to go beyond their experience, bringing forward their research with no need to forsake their personal touch and creativity. The book is also addressed to guitar players who may find answers about the guitar sound and cast a more competent look on the 'magic' world of lutherie. Although this is not an handbook on guitar construction, some reader will be possibly inspired to build its own guitar, following the designing criteria illustrated here. Finally the book addresses readers with a technical education in Engineering or Physics, curious about how certain basic principles of Acoustics can be applied to the operation of a musical instrument. Mathematical formulations have been reduced to a minimum; readers willing to go deeper on these subjects can refer to the specific publications mentioned in the text
