Yet not even Hamish thought someone would permanently silence Lady Jane's shrills--until her strangled body is fished out of the river.

Bored, lonely, and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest. Despite the fact that Agatha has never baked a thing in her life, she is sure the pie she has secretly bought from an upper-crust London quicherie will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when the judge not only snubs her entry—but falls over dead!

Starling
13 Introducing Starling - Thibault Imbert
Auteur : Thibault Imbert
Genre : Programmation
Starling is an ActionScript 3 2D framework developed on top of the Stage3D APIs (available on desktop in Flash Player 11 and Adobe AIR 3). Starling is mainly designed for game development, but could be used for many other use cases. Starling makes it possible to write fast GPU accelerated applications without having to touch the low-level Stage3D APIs.

Most Flash developers want to be able to leverage GPU acceleration (through Stage3D) without the need to write such higher-level frameworks and dig into the low-level Stage3D APIs. Starling is completely designed after the Flash Player APIs and abstracts the complexity of Stage3D (Molehill) and allows easy and intuitive programming for everyone.

Obviously Starling is for ActionScript 3 developers, especially those involved in 2D game development; of course you will need to have a basic understanding of ActionScript 3.

14 Introducing Game Theory - Ivan Pastine & Tuvana Pastine
Auteur : Ivan Pastine & Tuvana Pastine

When should you adopt an aggressive business strategy? How do we make decisions when we don’t have all the information? What makes international environmental cooperation possible?

Game theory is the study of how we make a decision when the outcome of our moves depends on the decisions of someone else. Economists Ivan and Tuvana Pastine explain why, in these situations, we sometimes cooperate, sometimes clash, and sometimes act in a way that seems completely random.

Stylishly brought to life by award-winning cartoonist Tom Humberstone, Game Theory will help readers understand behaviour in everything from our social lives to business, global politics to evolutionary biology. It provides a thrilling new perspective on the world we live in.

Quantum
17 Introducing Quantum Theory - J.P. McEvoy & Oscar Zarate
Auteur : J.P. McEvoy & Oscar Zarate
Genre : Physique
Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics. At the subatomic level, one particle seems to know what the others are doing, and according to Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle", there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed. And yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. "Introducing Quantum Theory" takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key figures, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's "Copenhagen Interpretation" - the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved.

Auteur : Christophe Fagiano, Detlef Helmbrecht, Jon Herd, Jeffrey Irving, Jana Jamsek, Carsten Larsen, Renato Santos & James Thompson
Genre : Ordinateurs
The success or failure of businesses often depends on how well organizations use their data assets for competitive advantage. Deeper insights from data require better information technology.

As organizations modernize their IT infrastructure to boost innovation rather than limit it, they need a data storage system that can keep pace with highly virtualized environments, cloud computing, mobile and social systems of engagement, and in-depth, real-time analytics.

Making the correct decision on storage investment is critical. Organizations must have enough storage performance and agility to innovate as they need to implement cloud-based IT services, deploy virtual desktop infrastructure, enhance fraud detection, and use new analytics capabilities. At the same time, future storage investments must lower IT infrastructure costs while helping organizations to derive the

Anthropology
24 Introducing Anthropology - Merryl Wyn-Davis
Auteur : Merryl Wyn-Davis
Genre : Sciences sociales
Anthropology originated as the study of 'primitive' cultures. But the notion of 'primitive' exposes presumptions of 'civilized' superiority and the right of the West to speak for 'less evolved' others. With the fall of Empire, anthropology became suspect and was torn by dissension from within. Did anthropology serve as a 'handmaiden to colonialism'? Is it a 'science' created by racism to prove racism? Can it aid communication between cultures, or does it reinforce our differences? "Introducing Anthropology" is a fascinating account of an uncertain human science seeking to transcend its unsavoury history. It traces the evolution of anthropology from its genesis in Ancient Greece to its varied forms in contemporary times. Anthropology's key concepts and methods are explained, and we are presented with such big-name anthropologists

Everything she had tried using conventional and alternative medicine had failed, until she employed a simple technique that she used in her work as an intuitive reader. Amazed that she had cured herself instantaneously, Vianna started to use this technique in her sessions with clients and saw person after person miraculously heal.

ThetaHealing is essentially applied quantum physics. Using a theta brain wave, which until now was believed to be accessible only in deep sleep or yogi-level meditation, the practitioner is able to connect with the energy of All That Is – the energy in everything – to identify issues with and witness healings on the physical body, and to identify and change limiting beliefs.

35 Capitalism of Happiness: Introducing a New Economic World Order that Puts Happiness at Its Core - Axel Bouchon
Auteur : Axel Bouchon
Genre : Développement personnel
The saying goes that money can’t buy happiness, but what if happiness were a currency?

In this thought-provoking book, Axel Bouchon walks us through the science of human behavior to show us how capitalism as a system is not built to satisfy human needs. Instead it drives a toxic consumer culture that systematically blocks brain development and erodes mental health. It’s no surprise that some of the wealthiest areas of the world are struggling with record levels of depression, addiction, and anxiety. But what if we could change this? What if we could revamp this system by putting happiness at its core?

The answer is a radical vision for a new economic world order that values happiness as the central measure for progress. Based on the latest insights from neuroscience and technology, this powerful approach could improve the lives of people in the poorest developin

36 Social History Present and Future (Introducing the Issues) - Journal of Social History
Auteur : Journal of Social History
Genre : Histoire
Social history has often had its temperature taken. In the United States the first probes came in the 1960s, when social historians had to define their core interests against a skeptical history establishment, reluctant to accept new topics and approaches that did not necessarily aim to illuminate standard subjects. This stock taking evolved, by the 1970s, into seemingly endless needs and opportunities to define the "new social history" to teachers and others now a bit more willing to accept legitimacy but still unsure of what subjects and methods were involved. With the 1980s came the challenge of the "new cultural turn"--was it something different from social history, even a danger to it, or rather an innovation within it?--and also attacks from conservative historians like Gertrude Himmhelfarb, convinced that social history was unseating history's true purposes in uplifting youth and

Auteur : Journal of Social History
Genre : Histoire
1. The current situation of social history Social history in Europe has passed through a period of changes and severe difficulties during the last twenty years or so. The general public became less interested in social history than in the 1960's and 1970's. Social history books sold less well than before. The big European newspapers now rarely present social history when they select history books for review. The same is true among history specialists themselves. Historians in general are far less enthusiastic about social history than before. New history journals no longer intend to promote primarily social history themes. New chairs in social history are difficult to imagine. Retiring social historians are often replaced by historians with other specialties. The glorious days of social history are a matter of the past.

38 Losses, Gains and Opportunities: Social History Today (Introducing the Issues) - Journal of Social History
Auteur : Journal of Social History
Genre : Histoire
The impression is widely spread that this is not a good moment to be a social historian. It has become common-place that our present situation differs strongly from the situation around 1970 when Eric Hobsbawm made his famous proclamation of optimism. Social history seems to have gone through a long period of decline which started in the early 1980s and may not have reached its rock-bottom yet. Mounting challenges to social historical views from outside, increasing internal doubt about basic principles of social-historical thought, fragmentation and loss of identity, declining popularity among researchers, students and in the public at large have been characteristic for the last 20-25 years, or so it seems. Certainly in Germany nobody would nowadays characterize social history the way it was characterized by Hans Rosenberg in 1969. With irony and sympathy he remarked that social history

39 Feminism: A Graphic Guide - Cathia Jenainati
Auteur : Cathia Jenainati
Genre : Sciences sociales
What is feminism? Why are we still talking about it, and what can it tell us about ourselves, our societies and prejudices?    In this unique, illustrated introduction, we’ll explore the early history of conscious struggle against sexist oppression, through the modern “waves” of feminism, up to present-day conversations about MeToo, intersectional feminism, and women’s rights in the Middle East. We’ll look at critical theory, popular action and the social and cultural forces that affect attitudes toward gender, women’s lives and the struggle for equality. And we’ll hear about the contributions of pioneers like Mary Wollstonecraft, Simone de Beauvoir and Kimberlé Crenshaw. As we’ll see, feminism is at once global, local and individual.

40 Word of Life - Timothy J. Wengert
Auteur : Timothy J. Wengert
Genre : Étude biblique
Renowned Reformation scholar Timothy J. Wengert explores the genesis of Lutheran biblical interpretation by tracing the early work of Martin Luther, Melanchthon, and other Wittenberg exegetes. Their new approach led them to view Scripture in terms of "law and gospel," to read and translate the Greek and Hebrew text, and to focus on a theology of the cross and justification by faith. Luther and his colleagues found God working in the last place anyone would reasonably look: on the cross, in weakness and foolishness. Wengert demonstrates how these key historical and theological perspectives can be demonstrated in preaching, reflection, and teaching today. Using brief examples of preaching The Seven Last Word of Christ and reflecting on Luther's work on a variety of Psalms, the author provides a path for students and pastors alike to plumb the depth of Lutheran hermeneutics in their preach

This textbook provides a clear and concise overview of the issues involved in these and other questions, exploring prominent contemporary approaches to the main issues relative to how to conceive of the God-world relationship within Christian theology. In so doing, Peckham surveys a range of live options regarding each of the primary questions, briefly considering where each falls within the spectrum of the Christian tradition and providing clear and readily understandable explanations of the technical issues involved. The result is a stimulating survey of the most prominent options in Christian theology relativ

Auteur : Meg-John Barker
Genre : Sciences sociales
Join the creators of Queer: A Graphic History (‘Could totally change the way you think about sex and gender’ VICE) on an illustrated journey of gender exploration. 
We’ll look at how gender has been ‘done’ differently – from patriarchal societies to trans communities – and how it has been viewed differently – from biological arguments for sex difference to cultural arguments about received gender norms. We’ll dive into complex and shifting ideas about masculinity and femininity, look at non-binary, trans and fluid genders, and examine the intersection of experiences of gender with people’s race, sexuality, class, disability and more. Tackling current debates and tensions, which can divide communities and even cost lives, we’ll look to the past and the future to ask how might we approach gender differently, in more socially construc

45 Introducing User-Friendly Family Therapy - Sigurd Reimers & Andy Treacher
Auteur : Sigurd Reimers & Andy Treacher
Genre : Psychologie
All too often the experience of users of family therapy is neglected in the theory and practice of family therapy as well as in the literature itself. In Introducing User-Friendly Family Therapy the authors describe in detail how the results of an action research project helped the professionals involved to modify their practice. They draw out the implications of the research for providing a genuinely user-friendly service and set the arguments for a more humanistic approach in the wider context of contemporary social policy.
Thought-provoking and practical in emphasis, this book places the user at the centre of the stage and insists that family therapy can only flourish if it becomes genuinely empowering and user-friendly.

Auteur : Academy of Educational Leadership Journal
Genre : Éducation
INTRODUCTION Since the inception of NAFTA, trade between the U.S. and its southern and northern trading partners has grown immensely. Much of the debate about NAFTA has focused on Mexico and the phenomenal growth of its trade with the U.S. Lost somewhere among the debates on American jobs lost to Mexico, illegal Mexican immigrants, trade deficits, plant closings and machiladora plants on the border of Mexico and the U.S., is the fact that Canada remains the largest single trading partner of the U.S. In fact, the Canadian government reports growth in bilateral trade between Canada and the U.S of almost six percent over the last 10 years (Government of Canada, 2007). Ironically, in spite of its importance to the American economy, very few studies have addressed Canada as a relevant topic in undergraduate or graduate business programs.
