"Prepare to fall in love with Binti." --Neil Gaiman
Winner of the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for Best Novella!
Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.
Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.
If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself -- but first she has to make it there, alive.

Reviews from the First Edition:
"An excellent text a ] The postulates of quantum mechanics and the mathematical underpinnings are discussed in a clear, succinct manner." (American Scientist)
"No matter how gently one introduces students to the concept of Diraca (TM)s bras and kets, many are turned off. Shankar attacks the problem head-on in the first chapter, and in a very informal style suggests that there is nothing to be frightened of." (Physics Bulletin)
Reviews of the Second Edition:
"This massive text of 700 and odd pages has indeed an excellent get-up, is very verbal and expressive, and has extensively worked out calculational details---all just right for a first course. The style is conversational, more like a corridor talk or lecture notes, though arranged as a text. a ] It would be particularly useful to beginning students and those in allied areas like quantum chemistry." (Mathematical Reviews)

Radiative Processes in Astrophysics This clear, straightforward, and fundamental introduction is designed to present—from a physicist’s point of view—radiation processes and their applications to astrophysical phenomena and space science. It covers such topics as radiative transfer theory, relativistic covariance and kinematics, bremsstrahlung radiation, synchrotron radiation, Compton scattering, some plasma effects, and radiative transitions in atoms. Discussion begins with first principles, physically motivating and deriving all results rather than merely presenting finished formulae. However, a reasonably good physics background (introductory quantum mechanics, intermediate electromagnetic theory, special relativity, and some statistical mechanics) is required. Much of this prerequisite material is provided by brief reviews, making the book a self-contained reference for workers in the field as well as the ideal text for senior or first-year graduate students of astronomy, astrophysics, and related physics courses. Radiative Processes in Astrophysics also contains about 75 problems, with solutions, illustrating applications of the material and methods for calculating results. This important and integral section emphasizes physical intuition by presenting important results that are used throughout the main text; it is here that most of the practical astrophysical applications become apparent.
This valuable resource provides support for teachers who may not be Physical Education teachers by illustrating simple exercises that can be easily done by an inexperienced teacher while ensuring that they are also scientifically based, safe, purposeful and cover all three domains of Physical Education (affective, cognitive and psychomotor).

The book covers basic content on anatomy and physiology, training theory and the teaching of skills, psychological aspects of coaching, drugs and nutrition in sport, sport injuries and first aid; as well as inclusive physical education and ethical behaviour in Physical Education and sports coaching. The book focuses on the South African context by being cognizant of cultural, geographical and sport diversity, giving due prominence to community or indigenous games and providing guidance on working in schools that are highly resourced as well as low-resourced schools. Guidance is also provided for engaging with CAPS subtopics, such as fitness, adventure sports, traditional games, traditional sport, and age-related activities as part of early specialisation.
