英文概要: Darwin’s theory of evolution was for more than a century dogged by a major problem: the evidence proving the connections between the main groups of organisms was nowhere to be found.

By the 1970s this absence of ‘transitional fossils’ was hotly debated; some palaeontologists wondered if these ‘missing links’ had been so quick that no trace of them was left. However, during the past three decades fossils of walking whales from Pakistan, feathered dinosaurs from China, fish with feet from the Arctic Circle, ape-like humans from Africa, and many more bizarre creatures that fill in crucial gaps in our understanding of evolution have all been unearthed. The first account of the hunt for evolution’s ‘missing links’, Written in Stone shows how these discoveries have revolutionised palaeontology, and explores what its findings might mean for our place on earth.

代理商:大苹果 ATOM (ICON SCIENCE)
by PIERS BIZONY
页数:224    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-15
< /td>
英文概要: Riddled with jealousy, rivalry, missed opportunities and moments of genius, the history of the atom’s discovery is as bizarre, as capricious, and as weird as the atom itself.

John Dalton gave us the first picture of the atom in the early 1800s. Almost 100 years later the young misfit New Zealander, Ernest Rutherford, showed the atom consisted mostly of space, and in doing so overturned centuries of classical science. It was a brilliant Dane, Neils Bohr, who made the next great leap - into the incredible world of quantum theory. Yet, he and a handful of other revolutionary young scientists weren’t prepared for the shocks Nature had up her sleeve.

This ‘insightful, compelling’ book (New Scientist) reveals the mind-bending discoveries that were destined to upset everything we thought we knew about reality and unleash a dangerous new force upon the world. Even today, as we peer deeper and deeper into the atom, it throws back as many questions at us as answers.

英文概要: Since his wife’s death at sea, San Francisco Police Detective Michael O’Higgins has been paralyzed by grief and shame - unable to care for their teenaged daughter, who saw her mother swept away, and unable to deal with the daily requirements of his job. Almost a year after his wife’s death, O’Higgins takes a ferry ride as part of his therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. On the boat, he meets a charming Indian family: successful young husband, two lovely daughters, and a kind, beautiful wife and mother.

O’Higgins has no idea that he will meet this woman again on his first day back after bereavement leave, when he and his partner are called to a Nob Hill mansion to investigate a homicide. The victim is the handsome man O’Higgins met on the ferry, and his wife, Asha Chaundhry, is the obvious suspect.

Asha Chaundhry becomes the center of O’Higgins’ investigation. The victim’s father, a prominent Indian politician and business tycoon, is anxious to keep his son’s death out of the public eye, and to have the investigation resolved as quickly as possible. As O’Higgins digs into the Chaundhrys’ business and political dealings, he becomes convinced of Asha’s innocence, while her father-in-law seeks to isolate her from friends and defenders, even sending her children back to extended family in India. Increasingly desperate, Asha turns to O’Higgins for comfort, in a way that threatens both his recovery and his career.

LAST FERRY HOME is a riveting novel of grief, obsession, recovery and passion from acclaimed author Kent Harrington, as well as a gripping portrait of a man torn apart by loss, but looking for something, anyone, to believe in.

代理商:大苹果 MICHAEL FARADAY AND THE ELECTRICAL CENTURY (ICON SCIENCE)
by IWAN RHYS MORUS
页数:240    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-15
< /td>
英文概要: The only scientist to ever appear on the British twenty pound note, Michael Faraday is one of the most recognisable names in the history of science. Faraday’s forte was electricity, a revolutionary force in nineteenth-century society. The electric telegraph had made mass-communication possible and inventors looked forward to the day when electricity would control all aspects of life. By the end of the century, this dream was well on its way to being realised. But what was Faraday’s role in all this? How did his science come to have such an impact on the lives of the Victorians (and ultimately on us)? Iwan Morus tells the story of Faraday’s upbringing in London and his apprenticeship at the Royal Institution under the supervision of the flamboyant chemist, Sir Humphry Davy, all set against the backdrop of a vibrant scientific culture and an empire near the peak of its power.

代理商:大苹果 MOVING HEAVEN AND EARTH (ICON SCIENCE): COPERNICUS AND THE SOLAR SYSTEM
by JOHN HENRY
页数:192    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-15
< /td>
英文概要: When Nicolaus Copernicus claimed that the Earth was not stationary at the centre of the universe but circled the Sun, he brought about a total revolution in the sciences and consternation in the Church. Copernicus’ theory demanded a new physics to explain motion and force, a new theory of space, and a completely new conception of the nature of our universe. He also showed for the first time that a common-sense view of things isn’t necessarily correct, and that mathematics can and does reveal the true nature of the material world. As John Henry reveals, from his idea of a swiftly moving Earth Copernicus sowed the seed from which science has grown to be a dominant aspect of modern culture, fundamental in shaping our understanding of the workings of the cosmos.

代理商:大苹果 THE GREATER EAST ASIA CO-PROSPERITY SPHERE: WHEN TOTAL EMPIRE MET TOTAL WAR (STUDIES OF THE WEATHERHEAD EAST ASIAN INSTITUTE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY)
by JEREMY A. YELLEN
页数:0    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-15
< /td>
英文概要: In The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, Jeremy Yellen exposes the history, politics, and intrigue that characterized the era when Japan’s "total empire" met the total war of World War II. He illuminates the ways in which the imperial center and its individual colonies understood the concept of the Sphere, offering two sometimes competing, sometimes complementary, and always intertwined visions―one from Japan, the other from Burma and the Philippines.

Yellen argues that, from 1940 to 1945, the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere epitomized two concurrent wars for Asia’s future: the first was for a new type of empire in Asia, and the second was a political war, waged by nationalist elites in the colonial capitals of Rangoon and Manila. Exploring Japanese visions for international order in the face of an ever-changing geopolitical situation, The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere explores wartime Japan’s desire to shape and control its imperial future while its colonies attempted to do the same. At Japan’s zenith as an imperial power, the Sphere represented a plan for regional domination; by the end of the war, it had been recast as the epitome of cooperative internationalism. In the end, the Sphere could not survive wartime defeat, and Yellen’s lucidly written account reveals much about the desires of Japan as an imperial and colonial power, as well as the ways in which the subdued colonies in Burma and the Philippines jockeyed for agency and a say in the future of the region.

by AUTHOR BY ZIAUDDIN SARDAR AND ILLUSTRATOR BY BORIN VAN LOON
页数:176    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-14
< /td>
英文概要: The media is ubiquitous. Every day we watch hours of TV, listen to the radio, read newspapers and magazines, go to the cinema, sit in front of videos or surf the Web. These information commodities exercise enormous influence and power over all of us. Introducing Media Studies explores the complex relationship between the media, ideology, knowledge and power. It provides a scintillating tour of media history and presents a coherent view of the media industry, media theory and methods in media research. It explains how ’the audience’ is constructed and how it in turn interprets the content and meaning of media representation. We also learn how to analyse film, deconstruct advertising and appreciate how TV and the press shape public opinion. The media is a condition of our existence and, in an unprecedented way, the pervading shape of our history. No one can afford to neglect a critical understanding of its omnipresence. Here is an entertaining and informative book, accessible to students and general readers concerned with the increasing power, influence and proliferation of the media.

代理商:大苹果 INTRODUCING STATISTICS: A GRAPHIC GUIDE
by AUTHOR BY EILEEN MAGNELLO AND ILLUSTRATOR BY BORIN VAN LOON
页数:176    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-14
< /td>
英文概要: From the medicine we take, the treatments we receive, the aptitude and psychometric tests given by employers, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear to even the beer we drink, statistics have given shape to the world we inhabit. For the media, statistics are routinely ’damning’, ’horrifying’, or, occasionally, ’encouraging’. Yet, for all their ubiquity, most of us really don’t know what to make of statistics. Exploring the history, mathematics, philosophy and practical use of statistics, Eileen Magnello - accompanied by Bill Mayblin’s intelligent graphic illustration - traces the rise of statistics from the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Chinese, to the censuses of Romans and the Greeks, and the modern emergence of the term itself in Europe. She explores the ’vital statistics’ of, in particular, William Farr, and the mathematical statistics of Karl Pearson and R.A. Fisher.She even tells how knowledge of statistics can prolong one’s life, as it did for evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould, given eight months to live after a cancer diagnoses in 1982 - and he lived until 2002. This title offers an enjoyable, surprise-filled tour through a subject that is both fascinating and crucial to understanding our world.

英文概要: For Sam Lovell, organising the summer festival in her hometown is one of the highlights of her year. It’s not always smooth sailing, but she loves to see Porthmellow’s harbour packed with happy visitors, and being on the committee has provided a much-needed distraction from the drama in her family life (and the distinct lack of it in her love life).

When their star guest pulls out with only a few weeks to go, everyone’s delighted when a London chef who grew up locally steps in at the last minute. But Gabe Matthias is the last person Sam was expecting to see, and his return to Porthmellow will change her quiet coastal life for ever.

英文概要: Once upon a time… there was a young Jewish boy who was born in Warsaw a few years before the start of the Second World War. Driven out to far away Soviet Republics by Nazism, he survived and arrived in Paris with his parents in early 1950. Destined to become a painter, but led by fate and random encounters, Marek Halter will instead become the popular writer known worldwide and the relentless Peace activist who always kept hope alive and never gave up. From his childhood to today, as a real story-teller relying on an absolute faith in the power of the Word and of the dialogue, Marek Halter revisits each step of his unique destiny where we will meet with Stalin, Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, Nasser, Sadat, Yasser Arafat, Peres, Peron, Che Guevara, Putin, John Paul II, Pope Francis… not to forget the French presidents with whom he always maintained privileged relations.

His never ending fight for peace in the Middle East or for freedom of speech wherever combat needs to be carried out, but also his friendships, his loves, his inspiring sharing of Jewish culture… All told in a moving and original way as he addresses Clara, his wife and partner in battle for over forty years. She sadly passed away last year. Marek Halter invites us to take a look, through his personal journey, at almost a century of History.

< /td>
英文概要: INTRODUCING guide to the cult author, semiologist and analyzer of advertising, Roland Barthes. Roland Barthes is best known as a semiologist, a student of the science of signs. This sees human beings primarily as communicating animals, and looks at the way they use language, clothes, gestures, hair styles, visual images, shapes and colour to convey to one another their tastes, their emotions, their ideal self-image and the values of their society. Introducing Barthes brilliantly elucidates Barthes’ application of these ideas to literature, popular culture, clothes and fashion, and explains why his thinking in this area made him a key figure in the structuralist movement of the 1960s. It goes on to describe how his later insistence on pleasure, the delights of sexual non-conformity, and the freedom of the reader to interpret literary texts in the light of ideologies such as existentialism, Marxism and Freudianism, as well as structuralism itself, continues to make him one of the most dynamic and challenging of modern writers. This is the perfect companion volume to Introducing Semiotics.

英文概要: Islam is one of the world’s great monotheistic religions. Islamic culture, spanning 1,500 years, has produced some of the finest achievements of humanity. Yet the religion followed by a fifth of humankind is too often seen in the West in terms of fundamentalism, bigotry and violence- a perception that couldn’t be more wrong. Introducing Islam recounts the history of Islam from the birth of Prophet Muhammad in the 6th century to its status as a global culture and political force today. Charting the achievements of Muslim civilisation, it explains the nature and message of the Qur’an, outlines the basic features of Islamic law, and assesses the impact of colonialism on Muslim societies. Ziauddin Sardar and Zafar Abbas Malik show how Muslims everywhere are trying to live their faith and are shaping new Islamic ideas and ideals for a globalised world.

代理商:大苹果 RETHINKING THE BUSINESS MODELS OF BUSINESS SCHOOLS: A CRITICAL REVIEW AND CHANGE AGENDA FOR THE FUTURE
by KAI PETERS, RICHARD R. SMITH AND HOWARD THOMAS
页数:200    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-13
< /td>
英文概要: Management education growth and the rise in accompanying business schools over the last few decades are fuelled by global economic development, coupled with the promise of success in business careers. Recently, questions have been raised about the value and relevance of a traditional business school education – so what does the future hold for traditional business schools?

In this book, we examine the current model and the pressure points of business schools by considering the evolution of – and the various value chains that are associated with – business school offerings (including MBA, undergraduate, pre-experienced and executive programmes). We also offer insight on funding and value orientation, and the potential challenges these may raise for some schools. To highlight these challenges, we provide a strategic group framework for business schools and review the implications of future strategies for these groups.

Finally, after reviewing the current landscape of business school mergers, alliances and failures, we reflect on innovation considerations for the business school business model. Management education is changing, and business schools must be ready to re-evaluate their strategies for growth… and, in some cases, survival.

页数:132    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-13
< /td>
英文概要: This treatment manual provides mental health professionals with instructions for conducting written exposure therapy (WET) with clients who have posttraumatic stress disorder. Authors Denise Sloan and Brian Marx developed WET in response to a growing demand for an effective PTSD treatment that is easier to implement, more affordable, and has lower dropout rates than other trauma interventions. In their unique approach, the client writes about a single traumatic event, and the therapist focuses on the client’s experiences in writing about the trauma, rather than the event itself. This book contains a scripted protocol for WET along with detailed clinical guidance for conducting each session. Sloan and Marx answer frequently asked questions from clinicians and review real-life case examples that demonstrate solutions to common issues and challenges that can occur during WET sessions. They also explain how to assess the client before treatment to determine the appropriateness of WET and during treatment to monitor the client’s progress. Key background information about PTSD symptoms and WET’s theoretical underpinnings are also reviewed.

by VALYA DUDYCZ LUPESCU AND STEPHEN H SEGAL
页数:160    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-2-12

封面暂缺
英文概要: With its high concept, exceptional writing, eye-popping set design, stellar cast, meaningful explorations of what it means to be a good person, and clam chowder fountains, The Good Place has captured the hearts and minds of critics and viewers alike. Known for its unique blend of existential humor and philosophy, the fantasy-comedy follows Eleanor, a young woman who finds herself in a heaven-like utopia known as The Good Place after her untimely death, even though she knows she belongs in The Bad Place. With the help of her new friends Chidi, Tahani, and Jason, Eleanor designs a self-improvement plan to earn her spot in The Good Place, even as her presence threatens the stability of the afterlife, sending jumbo shrimp flying through the sky and frozen yogurt flowing through the streets.

For the first time ever, fans can indulge their cravings for The Good Place with delicious, comforting, original recipes like "Macaroni and Socra-cheese," "I Think Therefore I Clam (Chowder)," "Arendt You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana (Split)," "I Kant Believe It’s Not Buttermilk Pancakes," and more. Each recipe title references a philosopher or philosophical concept from the show and uses food analogies to explain those concepts to readers who, like Eleanor, can’t always follow Chidi’s lectures.

A refreshing and entertaining twist on cookbooks, Forking Good will inspire you to brew a pot of "Moral Uncertain-tea" as you catch up on the latest episode, plan a "Hegel’s and Locke’s Brunch" for your next viewing party, or whip up a batch of "Muffin to Lose" in between seasons. And if you’re not the type to slave over a hot stove, you could always throw on your teal powersuit, make yourself a "Mindy" cocktail (rum and a lot of Coke), and re-binge your favorite show.
