The Student s Introduction to MATHEMATICA Book Excerpt:

The unique feature of this compact student's introduction is that it presents concepts in an order that closely follows a standard mathematics curriculum, rather than structure the book along features of the software. As a result, the book provides a brief introduction to those aspects of the Mathematica software program most useful to students. The second edition of this well loved book is completely rewritten for Mathematica 6 including coverage of the new dynamic interface elements, several hundred exercises and a new chapter on programming. This book can be used in a variety of courses, from precalculus to linear algebra. Used as a supplementary text it will aid in bridging the gap between the mathematics in the course and Mathematica. In addition to its course use, this book will serve as an excellent tutorial for those wishing to learn Mathematica and brush up on their mathematics at the same time.

The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness A Novel Book Excerpt:

The highly anticipated release of the most personal novel by Kyung-Sook Shin, who first burst on to the literary scene with the New York Times bestseller, Please Look After Mom. Homesick and alone, a teen-aged girl has just arrived in Seoul to work in a factory. Her family, still in the countryside, is too impoverished to keep sending her to school, so she works long, sun-less days on a stereo-assembly line, struggling through night school every evening in order to achieve her dream of becoming a writer. Korea’s brightest literary star sets this complex and nuanced coming-of-age story against the backdrop of Korea’s industrial sweatshops of the 1970’s and takes on the extreme exploitation, oppression, and urbanization that helped catapult Korea’s economy out of the ashes of war. But it was girls like Shin’s heroine who formed the bottom of Seoul’s rapidly changing social hierarchy, forgotten and ignored. Richly autobiographical, The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness lays bare the conflict and confusion Shin faces as she confronts her past and the sweeping social change of the past half-century. Cited in Korea as one of the most important literary novels of the decade, this novel cements Shin’s legacy as one of the most insightful and exciting writers of her generation.

Market Strategies and German Literature in the Long Nineteenth Century Book Excerpt:

Building upon recent German Studies research addressing the industrialization of printing, the expansion of publication venues, new publication formats, and readership, Market Strategies maps a networked literary field in which the production, promotion, and reception of literature from the Enlightenment to World War II emerges as a collaborative enterprise driven by the interests of actors and institutions. These essays demonstrate how a network of authors, editors, and publishers devised mutually beneficial and, at times, conflicting strategies for achieving success on the rapidly evolving nineteenth-century German literary market. In particular, the contributors consider how these actors shaped a nineteenth-century literary market, which included the Jewish press, highbrow and lowbrow genres, and modernist publications. They explore the tensions felt as markets expanded and restrictions were imposed, which yielded resilient new publication strategies, fostered criticism, and led to formal innovations. The volume thus serves as major contribution to interdisciplinary research in nineteenth-century German literary, media, and cultural studies.

Is It Safe Protecting Your Computer Your Business and Yourself Online Book Excerpt:

Is It Safe? PROTECTING YOUR COMPUTER, YOUR BUSINESS, AND YOURSELF ONLINE IDENTITY THEFT. DATA THEFT. INTERNET FRAUD. ONLINE SURVEILLANCE. EMAIL SCAMS. Hacks, attacks, and viruses. The Internet is a dangerous place. In years past, you could protect your computer from malicious activity by installing an antivirus program and activating a firewall utility. Unfortunately, that’s no longer good enough; the Internet has become a much darker place, plagued not only by rogue software but also by dangerous criminals and shadowy government agencies. Is It Safe? addresses the new generation of security threat. It presents information about each type of threat and then discusses ways to minimize and recover from those threats. Is It Safe? differs from other security books by focusing more on the social aspects of online security than purely the technical aspects. Yes, this book still covers topics such as antivirus programs and spam blockers, but it recognizes that today’s online security issues are more behavioral in nature–phishing schemes, email scams, and the like. Are you being scammed? Learn how to spot the newest and most insidious computer security threats–fraudulent retailers, eBay scammers, online con artists, and the like. Is your identity safe? Avoid being one of the nine million Americans each year who have their identities stolen. Today’s real Internet threats aren’t viruses and spam. Today’s real threat are thieves who steal your identity, rack up thousands on your credit card, open businesses under your name, commit crimes, and forever damage your reputation! Is Big Brother watching? Get the scoop on online tracking and surveillance. We examine just who might be tracking your online activities and why. Is your employer watching you? How to tell when you’re being monitored; and how to determine what is acceptable and what isn’t. Michael Miller has written more than 80 nonfiction books over the past two decades. His best-selling books include Que’s YouTube 4 You, Googlepedia: The Ultimate Google Resource, iPodpedia: The Ultimate iPod and iTunes Resource, and Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computer Basics.

The American Plague Book Excerpt:

In this account, a journalist traces the course of the infectious disease known as yellow fever, “vividly [evoking] the Faulkner-meets-Dawn of the Dead horrors” (The New York Times Book Review) of this killer virus. Over the course of history, yellow fever has paralyzed governments, halted commerce, quarantined cities, moved the U.S. capital, and altered the outcome of wars. During a single summer in Memphis alone, it cost more lives than the Chicago fire, the San Francisco earthquake, and the Johnstown flood combined. In 1900, the U.S. sent three doctors to Cuba to discover how yellow fever was spread. There, they launched one of history's most controversial human studies. Compelling and terrifying, The American Plague depicts the story of yellow fever and its reign in this country—and in Africa, where even today it strikes thousands every year. With “arresting tales of heroism,” (Publishers Weekly) it is a story as much about the nature of human beings as it is about the nature of disease.

Communications Systems Management Handbook Sixth Edition Book Excerpt:

Just a decade ago, many industry luminaries predicted the collapse of the centralized data center and IT structure. In its place would be a more decentralized client/server model built upon the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) networking architecture. However, client/server never fully realized all of its promises, and OSI floundered. Now, instead of client/server and OSI, we have the Web-based model and TCP/IP. Together, Web-oriented technologies (i.e., browsers, web servers, HTML, Java) and TCP/IP are completely changing how the enterprise views its network. Instead of serving as primarily an internal utility, the enterprise network is now a vital means of delivering products and services and of tying an enterprise more closely to its customers, partners and suppliers. The impact to the very structure of the enterprise network could not be more profound. Providing extensive coverage of planning, networking, LANs, systems management, communications issues and trends, Communications Systems Management Handbook, 6th Edition is your most reliable source for solid, dependable solutions to real-world data communications problems. The tips, strategies, and case-studies provided do more than just save you time and money. They also save your data communications network, and with it your professional life. This new edition of the Communications Systems Management Handbook provides you with detailed information on the different facets of change in the enterprise network: Enterprise network architectures LAN and campus networking Remote access WAN Data centers Client and servers Security Network Management What's more, the New Edition is dramatically restructured, providing a more logical grouping of articles into discrete sections that bring focus to a particular enterprise networking topic. In addition, the content of this edition has been substantially updated. Almost three-quarters of the articles are new to this edition. The common theme throughout the handbook is the change that the enterprise network is undergoing and how to manage it. The handbook's generous use of illustrations simplifies the technical workings of networks and communications systems. The comprehensive index makes it easy to find the topics you want and related topics. And because each chapter is written by an expert with first-hand experience in data communications, no other book gives you such a full range of perspectives and explanations of the technical, planning, administrative, personnel, and budget challenges of the communication manager's job. Covering everything from electronic commerce to multimedia, from system design and cost allocation to Ethernet switches and the impact of virtual private networks, this is your one-stop source for the best, most essential data communications expertise to be found anywhere. The Communications Systems Management Handbook serves as an information tool for proven advice and methods on managing network services and costs, creating networking solutions, and preparing for advanced communications network technologies.
