Trautmann: The Biography
RM 31.90
Kobo

In April 1945, a group of bedraggled, weary German prisoners of war landed at Tilbury after being captured during the last days of the war. They were dispersed to prison camps throughout England and one of their number, a confused 22-year-old veteran of some of the harshest conditions and hardest battles experienced by the German forces, found himself in south-east Lancashire. His name was Bernhard Carl Trautmann, later to become famous as Bert. This book is the complete story, from his early life in Bremen where he was born and raised in the seething political climate of the 1920s, his involvement with the Hitler Youth movement and extraordinary war experiences to his often hilarious internment at prisoner of war Camp 50, until his signing by Manchester City in 1949 amid a barrage of controversy and prejudice. Trautmann ran the gauntlet of racial hatred to become, without doubt, one of the greatest goalkeepers ever seen. He played in two successive FA cup finals, 1955 and 1956, the latter year bringing him into world focus when he sustained a broken neck. Yet he continued with the game! Within weeks of that Cup Final he suffered further appalling personal tragedy, amid turmoil in his home life, as he fought to regain his fitness. This is an exciting story of courage and humour and it gives a rare insight into the professional football world of the 1950s and 1960s, while recording with candour Trautmann's often turbulent personal and professional life. The book also includes details of the Traumann Foundation and Trautmann's Obe.

Variational Principles in Dynamics and Quantum Theory
RM 54.40
Kobo

Concentrating upon applications that are most relevant to modern physics, this valuable book surveys variational principles and examines their relationship to dynamics and quantum theory. Stressing the history and theory of these mathematical concepts rather than the mechanics, the authors provide many insights into the development of quantum mechanics and present much hard-to-find material in a remarkably lucid, compact form. After summarizing the historical background from Pythagoras to Francis Bacon, Professors Yourgrau and Mandelstram cover Fermat's principle of least time, the principle of least action of Maupertuis, development of this principle by Euler and Lagrange, and the equations of Lagrange and Hamilton. Equipped by this thorough preparation to treat variational principles in general, they proceed to derive Hamilton's principle, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, and Hamilton's canonical equations. An investigation of electrodynamics in Hamiltonian form covers next, followed by a resume of variational principles in classical dynamics. The authors then launch into an analysis of their most significant topics: the relation between variational principles and wave mechanics, and the principles of Feynman and Schwinger in quantum mechanics. Two concluding chapters extend the discussion to hydrodynamics and natural philosophy. Professional physicists, mathematicians, and advanced students with a strong mathematical background will find this stimulating volume invaluable reading. Extremely popular in its hardcover edition, this volume will find even wider appreciation in its first fine inexpensive paperbound edition.

Principles of Environmental Economics and Sustainability
RM 336.10 RM 373.40
Kobo

Recent years have witnessed considerable consolidation between the disciplines of environmental and ecological economics at research level, but until now textbooks in the area have done little to reflect this. Ahmed Hussen's book is to date the only one to reconcile the two standpoints. The central focus of the book will continue to be on this systematic integration of both mainstream and ecological approaches to environmental economics, and an acknowledgement that enduring solutions to major contemporary environmental challenges can be obtained through studies based on a well-conceived and balanced interdisciplinary approach. However, this third edition also contains much that is new. Chiefly, brand new chapters appear covering the following topics: The economics of climate change The economics of biodiversity and ecosystem services 'Green' accounting and alternative economic and social indicators of sustainability The business case for environmental sustainability An Appendix that provides a brief historical account of the development of ecological economics The result is a comprehensive introduction to the main facets of environmental and ecological economics - a text that boldly refuses to put up barriers between disciplines and takes a holistic approach to vital issues. This student-friendly textbook contains a variety of study tools including learning points, boxed features, case studies, revision questions and discussion questions, and an Appendix that provides students with a review of basic economic principles relevant to the study of the environment and its management. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book will prove an excellent choice for introducing both students and academics to the world of environmental economics.

On the Principles and Development of the Calculator and Other Seminal Writings
RM 91.10
Kobo

Regarded as a crackpot by his contemporaries and a genius by modern scientists, Charles Babbage (1792-1871) was the true discoverer of the principles on which all modern computing machines are based. His achievements have been virtually forgotten, but this compilation of his writings, in addition to those of several of his contemporaries, illuminates his pioneering work. Part I consists of selections from Babbage's long-out-of-print autobiography, Passages from the Life of a Philosopher, in which he recounts the pursuit of his dreams and remarks on noteworthy acquaintances, including Laplace, Biot, Humboldt, and Sir Humphry Davy. Additional features include articles, sketches, and letters by Babbage himself along with notes by his contemporaries that explain the principles and operation of the inventor's brilliant - but never completed - calculating machines. An informative Introduction places these writings in their historical context.

Elibron Classics Replica of 1820 edition by John Murray, London. Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834) This British economist is most famous for the notion that whereas population increases geometrically, resources increase arithmetically-implying that an increasing population is doomed to be short of food and other necessities. Malthus concluded that this dilemma made such phenomena as disease and crime necessary for social stability, only later adding that morality, too, is a safeguard against social upheaval. His works include An Essay on the Principle of Population as It Affects the Future Improvement of Society, in which he sets forth these doctrines, and Principles of Political Economy.

About THE Book Ellen DeGeneres is a stand-up comedian, a TV show host, an actress, and an author. She gained her celebrity status through years of stand-up comedy in the early 1980s, earning her first major breakthrough after she was nationally recognized and named "The Funniest Person in America" after winning a competition sponsored by the cable network Showtime, according to IMDb. Her next big break in the public eye was in 1986 when "acting on a tip from Jay Leno, The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson sent a booking agent to catch her act at the Improv in Hollywood," as Bio reports.

Ellen also previously starred in two TV sitcoms, Ellen, from 1994 to 1998 and The Ellen Show, from 2001 to 2002. In addition to her comedic talent, Ellen has a strong voice in the gay and lesbian community, as she is a lesbian herself. She often uses her celebrity to speak out about gay marriage rights.

Nancy Wake Biography Revised Edition
RM 41.10
Kobo

The number one bestselling biography of our greatest war heroine - over 84,000 copies sold in its first two formats. In the early 1930s, Nancy Wake was a young woman enjoying a bohemian life in Paris. By the end of the Second World War, she was the Gestapo's most wanted person. As a naïve, young journalist, Nancy Wake witnessed a horrific scene of Nazi violence in a Viennese street. From that moment, she declared that she would do everything in her power to rid Europe of the Nazis. What began as a courier job here and there became a highly successful escape network for Allied soldiers, perfectly camouflaged by Nancy's high-society life in Marseille. Her network was soon so successful - and so notorious - that she was forced to flee France to escape the Gestapo, who had dubbed her "the white mouse" for her knack of slipping through its traps. But Nancy was a passionate enemy of the Nazis and refused to stay away. Supplying weapons and training members of a powerful underground fighting force, organising Allied parachute drops, cycling four hundred kilometres across a mountain range to find a new transmitting radio - nothing seemed too difficult in her fight against the Nazis. Peter FitzSimons reveals Nancy Wake's compelling story, a tale of an ordinary woman doing extraordinary things.

Principles of Brownfield Regeneration
RM 113.90
Kobo

The US. EPA defines brownfields as "idle real property, the development or improvement of which is impaired by real or perceived contamination." The authors of Principles of Brownfield Regeneration argue that, compared to "greenfields"-farmland, forest, or pasturelands that have never been developed-brownfields offer a more sustainable land development choice. They believe that brownfields are central to a sustainable planning strategy of thwarting sprawl, preserving or regenerating open space, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and reinvesting in urbanized areas. This is the first book to provide an accessible introduction to the design, policy, and technical issues related to brownfield redevelopment. After defining brownfields and advocating for their redevelopment, the book describes the steps for cleaning up a site and creating viable land for development or open space. Land use and design considerations are addressed in a separate chapter and again in each of five case studies that make up the heart of the volume: The Steel Yard, Providence, RI; Assunpink Greenway, Trenton, NJ; June Key Community Center Demonstration Project, Portland, OR; Eastern Manufacturing Facility, Brewer, ME; and The Watershed at Hillsdale, Portland, OR. Throughout, the authors draw on interviews with people involved in brownfield projects as well as on their own considerable expertise.

Rodney Eade has had an incredible journey in sport and in life. Growing up in Tasmania, sport was always an integral part of his life, with his dad playing state football and cricket. Early on, it looked as if cricket would be Rodney's game. Then the Hawthorn Football Club took him across Bass Strait as a 17-year-old to play VFL football. Little did anyone know - least of all Rodney - what lay ahead: four Premierships with Hawthorn; coaching the first interstate team to win a premiership; coaching the Swans to their first Grand Final since moving to Sydney; and becoming just the 12th person in the history of the game to both play and coach 200 games. Eade's life and career is an extraordinary story, and Kevin Hillier has interviewed a huge range of footballing talent and experience to fully do it justice.

The 7 Principles of Stress

Ori Hofmekler, acclaimed author of The Warrior Diet and one of the first proponents of intermittent fasting, challenges conventional wisdom about diet, fitness, and anti-aging with a new approach to health that uses stress to live longer, stay fit, and ward off fat. Supported by cutting-edge research, this book redefines the term "nutrition" as it reveals the stress-mimicking nutrients that yield the same benefits as fasting and exercising. At the core of the book is the biology of stress and the way it affects key aspects of life from feeding and sexual behavior to mental and physical performance. Hofmekler demonstrates that that there is a thin line between beneficial stress and harmful stress, and shows how to put knowledge of the difference into powerful practice. His book is a call to action-a manifesto of living life to its utmost evolutionary potential, under stress, as nature intended.

About THE Book Albert Einstein is regarded by many people as the greatest scientific mind in the history of the world. Why? Well, there are many reasons, but one of the most important is that his theories led directly to the creation of the atom bomb, and with it, the dawn of the nuclear age. Not only did his work in theoretical physics-in particular, his famous e=mc2 equation-indicate that it would be possible to build a massively destructive bomb, the like of which had never been seen before, Einstein himself urged the United States government to go ahead and build it. Most historians agree that Germany's invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, marked the beginning of World War II in Europe. But about one month before that date-on August 2, 1939-Einstein, who was living in America at the time, wrote to the then President of the US, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, outlining the ongoing scientific breakthroughs-made by Enrico Fermi and Leo Szilard-that could lead to the creation of "extremely powerful bombs of a new type" and suggesting that the government should fund, manage and speed up the progress towards such weapons. In the letter, Einstein explained that the key element used in these scientific "chain reaction" experiments was an element called uranium, which would become critical to the making of the bombs in the immediate future. To that end, he recommended that the US government should give particular attention to securing the supply of uranium ore, particularly as the US had no significant uranium mines of its own. Einstein further pointed out that Germany had stopped exports from the uranium mines it owned in Czechoslovakia, implying that if the US did not develop the new bombs, Germany will. Excerpt From THE Book By the standards of most scientists, Einstein lived a varied and interesting life, living in several different countries over the course of his 76 years, formulating theories that not only changed the scientific establishment but also transforme

Principles of Sentencing
RM 268.90
The Co-op

On the one hand; modern legislation and appellate decisions have the effect of standardising many of the core principles of sentencing law. On the other; judges and magistrates retain a wide discretion in almost every case; while lawyers argue many different; often disparate and sometimes inherently complex factors. This book isolates; explains and critiques these principles. It identifies the key themes; analyses examples and examines the exercise of judicial discretion both in the scope of factors that may be taken into account and in the choice of sanctions. Specific chapters cover: sentencing procedure; general principles; mitigating factors; sentencing of juvenile offenders; non-custodial and substitutional sentencing options; imprisonment; sentencing for specific offenders and appeals against sentence.

Kobo

The Three Principles of the People is a timely work that is still relevant in today's economic times. In this book Dr. Sun Yat-Sen outlines his beliefs and principles for the people. In view of the prominent and influential position which The Three Principles of the People holds in the Chinese Nationalist movement and because of the difficulty involved in making passages for an abridged edition, Mr. Price has rendered a complete translation. The translation is faithful to the original and yet clear to the English reader. It will be of help to those who have read the book in Chinese and also to those who wish to know the English equivalents for Dr. Sun's ideas, terms and phrases. Three features not in the original Chinese text have been added in the translation: The number of paragraphs has been increased. A few brief notes have been added to explain generally unfamiliar names and references. A brief summary has been placed at the beginning of each chapter. This translation was issued under the auspices of the China Committee, Institute of Pacific Relations, as a volume of the "International Understanding Series" with the hope that it will promote a better understanding abroad of the great forces that are now driving China forward.

The Adventures of SahebaN: Biography of a Relentless Warrior
RM 19.80
Kobo

In 1949, Simone de Beauvoir, author of The Second Sex, wrote: 'All oppression creates a state of war, this is no exception.' In The Adventures of Saheban, Fauzia Rafique has taken the principle, weaving this fundamental truth through the lives of four women. Saheban, heroine of a popular Pakistani folk story, rebels against her family, refusing an arranged marriage; Saheban, the weaponless Warrior, rebels against a male-dominated society; Ego Feathers is forced to write Saheban's biography in secret code; and Fauzia, oppressed by rampant sexism in her native country, embarks on a new life in a different country, only to experience further oppression in the guise of racism, and economic disparity. Stumbling across Saheban's biography, Fauzia cracks Ego Feathers code, ultimately (and hopefully) freeing herself from the chains that have bound her existence.

Herbert Spencer and William James on the Principles of Psychology (Illustrated)
RM 8.60
Kobo

The book has an active table of contents for readers to access each chapter of the titles: 1. The Principles of Psychology - Herbert Spencer 2. The Principles of Psychology - William James Hebert Spencer coined the famous expression "survival of the fittest". Spencer's theory inspired Andrew Carnegie and William Graham Sumner's visions of unbridled and unrepentant capitalism of the United States in late nineteenth-century. Carnegie interpreted Spencer's social theory as justifying merciless economic competition. Spencer's reputation was not recovered for many years from the interpretative caricatures of many scholars, thus marginalizing him to the hinterlands of intellectual history. Fortunately, recent scholarship has begun restoring and repairing his legacy and theory. The work in the book by William James were widely used by students of psychology. William James influences on Psychology theory are as the follows: 1) Pragmatism According to pragmatism, the truth of an idea can never be proven. James proposed we instead focus on what he called the "cash value," or usefulness, of an idea. 2) Functionalism James opposed breaking down mental events to the smallest elements. Instead, James focused on the wholeness of an event, taking into the impact of the environment on behavior. 3) James-Lange Theory of Emotion The James-Lange theory of emotion proposes that an event triggers a physiological reaction, which we then interpret. According to this theory, emotions are caused by our interpretations of these physiological reactions. In addition to his influence on Psychology, William James' discussion of choice and rationality, as well as self-interest, made significant contributions to areas of concern in modern economic theory. Each of these themes is connected with aspects of relevant economic literature and is the contribution of James' pragmatism to economic theory. This is a must book for readers who are interested in studying and correctly interpreting Spencer'

Lewis Hamilton - Champion of the World - The Biography
RM 28.50 RM 31.60
Kobo

Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal and the loss of McLaren's constructors' points, bestselling sports author Frank Worrall describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world. From the momentous first podium finish in Melbourne to victories throughout the year in Canada, the United States, Hungary and Japan - as well as the dramatic crash at the Nurburgring and the gripping final race in Brazil - the entire season is covered. With the definitive take on Lewis' rise through the motor racing ranks and the crucial role of his family, this is must for every sports fan. Ever-confident, Lewis goes from strength to strength and is guaranteed to set the track alight for many years to come. This is the ultimate story of the driver whom Sir Jackie Stewart says 'has re-written the rookie rule book'. But he is a rookie no more. Lewis Hamilton is here to stay. Hamilton is the first black driver of African/Afro Caribbean ancestry to compete in F1. He is also the most prominent British hope for the Championship title. Ticket sales for the British GP have risen as a result of Lewis' success proving that there is huge interest in this rising star. This biography will be fully updated to include the full 2008 season.

Ad Infinitum: A Biography of Latin
RM 41.10
Kobo

An in-depth biography of the Latin language from its very beginnings to the present day from the widely acclaimed author of 'Empires of the Word'. The Latin language has been a constant in the cultural history of the West for over two millennia. It has shaped the way we think of ourselves and of our (central) place in the world. It has formed and united us as Europeans, has been the foundation of our education for centuries and defined the way in which we express our thoughts, our faith and our knowledge of the workings of the world. And yet, Latin began life as the cumbersome dialect of a small southern Italian city-state. Its active use lasted three times as long as Rome's Empire and its use echoes on in the law codes of half the world, in terminologies of biology and medicine, and until forty years ago in the litany of the Catholic Church, the most populous form of Christianity. In 'Ad Infinitum', Nicholas Ostler examines the reasons why Latin made such a long-lasting impact on language, and how it managed to stay alive for two millennia despite the cultural superiority of Greek. He will look at how Latin's sturdy roots remained untouched while empires rose and fell, the influence of religion, war and the ways it has progressed through medieval times right up until the present day.

Must-Read Biographies Everyone Should Include into their Personal Collection

Biographies provide a glimpse into the past or capture the life and experiences of an icon, allowing readers to walk in someone else’s shoes. A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject. Fictional stories make for fun reads as well, but nothing is as compelling and inspirational as real-life recollections of one’s life. Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.
