Imagining Life on the Moon During the Rise of the Telescope

release date: Oct 13, 2020
Imagining Life on the Moon During the Rise of the Telescope
In the early 1600s, the first telescopes came into use. Astronomers debated if the Moon''s dark spots were seas, if it had an atmosphere, and if life existed there. Scientific debates inspired fiction writers to imagine that life.Telescopes improved in the 1700s. In a report on the Moon, however, esteemed astronomer William Herschel still referred to "the great probability, not to say almost absolute certainty, of her being inhabited." Science-fiction writers continued to explore this possibility.By the end of the 1800s, most scientists agreed that the Moon is lifeless. As telescopic technology waxed, fiction about life on the Moon waned. Featuring works by Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, and other visionaries, Imagining Life on the Moon During the Rise of the Telescope brings this phase of science into clearer focus.

In the Evil Day

In the Evil Day
On the afternoon of August 19, 1997, John Harrigan-owner and publisher of the News and Sentinel newspaper in Colebrook, New Hampshire-arrived at his building to find the woman he loved lying dead in the parking lot. Lawyer Vickie Bunnell had been shot and killed by a local carpenter wielding an assault rifle. By then, three more people were already dead or dying. More mayhem was to ensue in an afternoon of plot twists too improbable for a novel. The roots of the incident stretch back twenty-five years, with tendrils deep in the history of New England''s North Country. These bloody events shocked America and made headlines across the world. Hundreds of local citizens became unwilling players in the drama-friends and colleagues of the dead, men and women who were themselves real or potential targets, along with their neighbors in law enforcement-but the town and its inhabitants were never passive victims. From the first shot fired that day, they remained courageously determined to survive. This is the story of that town, those people, and that day. In the Evil Day is a moving portrait of small-town life and familiar characters forever changed by sudden violence.

Sawyer and Finn

release date: Oct 08, 2013
Sawyer and Finn
Richard DeLong Adams has performed a remarkable literary tour de force, bringing back two of our favorite characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, placing them in the Civil War in Missouri. They harmonize with historic characters, including Congressman Frank Blair, the outlaw Jesse James, and Confederate guerilla Wild Bill Anderson, along with those borrowed from Twain, such as the Widow Douglas, Judge and Becky Thatcher, and Jim, with a few inventions of his own, to create a wonderful tour of one of the tragic episodes in American history. The voices that emerge from this dark storm are potent reminders of who we Americans are, where we come from, and why. Adams has created authentically American voices on both sides of our most terrible conflict and has traced to their sources the most intractable of U. S. paradoxes, including the Westward Expansion, slavery, miscegenation, agricultural versus urbanized society, North versus South, and commercial against patriotic interests. Perhaps the most remarkable achievement of the book is a voice at once contemporary and authentic to the Missouri of the 1860s. The ever-changing aspects of America’s turn from rural to urban, from slavery to freedom resonate today. We see in Adams’s Huck and Tom not only Twain’s America, but our own, and the thunderous collisions of the ongoing ominous tragedy we still can feel today. This exceptional novel will delight readers and recall why we’re proud — however silently, however provisionally — to be Americans.

Migrant Labor Remittances in South Asia
According to a recent World Bank study of remittances, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are all among the top 20 receivers of remittances, with estimated receipts of US$3.2 billion, US$8.4 billion and U.S$ 1.5 billion respectively.

It examines the development and implementation of policies, processes, and infrastructure to foster a development-oriented transfer of financial resources between migrants in developed economies and their families in the region. Rather than duplicate previous remittances work, this title only focuses on the region?s distinguishing characteristics, namely: --A large migrant population of semi-skilled and unskilled workers largely concentrated in the Arabian Gulf countries, particularly Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. --The presence of dedicated public institutions and government financial incentives aimed at facilitating and providing incentives for temporary migration and remittance inflows --The existence of large state bank branch networks with immense potential for a more effective and efficient remittance financial market. --The widespread usage of trade related informal remittance channels by both legal and illegal migrants. The book is intended for policymakers who legislate and regulate the financial sector, as well as for researchers and providers of remittance services.

In Shardik Adams sets a different yet equally compelling tale in a far-off fantasy world.

Mighty, ferocious, and unpredictable, Shardik changes the life of every person in the story. His advent commences a momentous chain of events. Kelderek the hunter, who loves and trusts the great bear, is swept up by destiny to become first devotee and then prophet, then victorious soldier, then ruler of an empire and priest-king of Lord Shardik—Messenger of God—only to discover ever-deeper layers of meaning implicit in his passionate belief in the bear’s divinity.

Beyond Command and Control

release date: Apr 20, 2017
Beyond Command and Control
This book will advance the understanding of leadership beyond the inherited myths and modalities of command and control. Leadership is separated from ideas and institutional seniority and explained as the collaborative power of one with others. Enabling the intelligent co-participation of all people, the constructive effect of this approach to leadership is in the engagement of people. This is significant when task accomplishment depends not on managerial direction, but on the interaction of people with each other, with technical systems, and with complex regulations which are often across jurisdictional boundaries. Examples and case studies are included.
