Applied Solid Mechanics (Paperback): Peter Howell, Gregory Kozyreff, John Ockendon Applied Solid Mechanics (Paperback)
Peter Howell, Gregory Kozyreff, John Ockendon
R1,025 Discovery Miles 10 250 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The world around us, natural or man-made, is built and held together by solid materials. Understanding their behaviour is the task of solid mechanics, which is in turn applied to many areas, from earthquake mechanics to industry, construction to biomechanics. The variety of materials (metals, rocks, glasses, sand, flesh and bone) and their properties (porosity, viscosity, elasticity, plasticity) is reflected by the concepts and techniques needed to understand them: a rich mixture of mathematics, physics and experiment. These are all combined in this unique book, based on years of experience in research and teaching. Starting from the simplest situations, models of increasing sophistication are derived and applied. The emphasis is on problem-solving and building intuition, rather than a technical presentation of theory. The text is complemented by over 100 carefully-chosen exercises, making this an ideal companion for students taking advanced courses, or those undertaking research in this or related disciplines.

Monetary Economics - Policy and its Theoretical Basis (Paperback, 2nd ed. 2009): Keith Bain, Peter Howells Monetary Economics - Policy and its Theoretical Basis (Paperback, 2nd ed. 2009)
Keith Bain, Peter Howells
R1,660 R1,558 Discovery Miles 15 580 Save R102 (6%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This fully revised second edition of Bain and Howells' "Monetary Economics "provides an up-to-date examination of monetary policy as it is practised and the theory underlying it. The authors link the conduct of monetary policy to the IS/PC/MR model and extend this further through the addition of a simple model of the banking sector. They demonstrate why monetary policy is central to the management of a modern economy, showing how it might have lasting effects on real variables, and look at how the current economic crisis has weakened the ability of policymakers to influence aggregate demand through the structure of interest rates.
The second edition:

  • features a realistic account of the conduct of monetary policy when the money supply is endogenous
  • provides a detailed and up-to-date account of the conduct of monetary policy and links this explicitly to a framework for teaching macroeconomics
  • includes recent changes in money market operations and an examination of the problems posed for monetary policy by the recent financial crisis

"Monetary Economics" is an ideal core textbook for advanced undergraduate modules in monetary economics and monetary theory and policy.

This book contains contributions by scholars working on diverse aspects of speech who bring their findings to bear on the practical issue of how to treat stuttering in different language groups and in multilingual speakers. The book considers classic issues in speech production research, as well as whether regions of the brain that are affected in people who stutter relate to areas used intensively in fluent bilingual speech. It then reviews how formal language properties and differential use of parts of language affect stuttering in English, and then compares these findings to work on stuttering in a variety of languages. Finally, the book addresses methodological issues to do with studies on bilingualism and stuttering; and discusses which approach is appropriate in the treatment of bilingual and multilingual people who stutter.

Cian Duffy, Peter Howell
R2,623 Discovery Miles 26 230 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This critical anthology examines the place of the sublime in the cultural history of the late eighteenth century and Romantic period. Traditionally, the sublime has been associated with impressive natural phenomena and has been identified as a narrow aesthetic or philosophical category. Cultures of the Sublime: Selected Readings, 1750-1830: * recovers a broader context for engagements with, and writing about, the sublime * offers a selection of texts from a wide range of ostensibly unrelated areas of knowledge which both generate and investigate sublime effects * considers writings about mountains, money, crowds, the Gothic, the exotic and the human mind * contextualises and supports the extracts with detailed editorial commentary. Also featuring helpful suggestions for further reading, this is an ideal resource for anyone seeking a fresh, up-to-date assessment of the sublime.

In 'The Invisible Enemy', a mysterious cloud is causing havoc in space, infecting all those who pass through it with an intelligent virus which could spread throughout the whole galaxy. The Doctor (Baker) and Leela (Louise Jameson) try to come to the rescue, but the TARDIS passes through the cloud itself, leaving the Doctor infected with the virus. He and Leela then try to find help at a nearby medical station, where they meet the eccentric Professor Marius and his pet robot K-9. In 'K9 and Company', the pilot from the 'Doctor Who' spin-off series, the Doctor's former companion, Sarah-Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), arrives to take up residence with her Aunt Lavinia at the village of Moreton. She finds the house deserted apart from a crate marked for her attention, which turns out to contain a gift from the Time Lord: K9 Mark 3.

Twenty-First-Century Gothic (Hardcover, Unabridged edition): Brigid Cherry, Peter Howell, Caroline Ruddell Twenty-First-Century Gothic (Hardcover, Unabridged edition)
Brigid Cherry, Peter Howell, Caroline Ruddell
R1,159 Discovery Miles 11 590 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The essays in this volume reinterpret and contest the Gothic cultural inheritance, each from a specifically twenty-first century perspective. Most are based on papers delivered at a conference held, appropriately, in Horace Walpole's Gothic mansion at Strawberry Hill in West London, which is usually seen as the geographical origin of the first, but not the last, of the many Gothic revivals of the past 300 years. In a contemporary context, the Gothic sensibility could be seen as a mode particularly applicable to the frightening instability of the world in which we find ourselves at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The truth is probably less epochal: that Gothic never went away (when were we ever without fear?), or at least has persisted since its resurgence in the late nineteenth century. Gothic is at least as modern as it is ancient, and each essay in this collection contributes to current scholarship on the Gothic by exploring a particular aspect of Gothic's contemporaneity. The volume contains papers on horror novels and cinema, poetry, popular music and fan cultures.

R1,753 Discovery Miles 17 530 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The threat to use military force is a matter that commands immediate attention from many segments of government. Karsten, Howell, and Allen systematically analyze statistically significant numbers of actual cases to discover the determinants of success or failure of the threat to employ military force. After describing their methodology, they address several questions: what are the general characteristics of the typical threat? what types of threats succeed? what threats lead to war? did threats in the prenuclear past differ in outcome from those in the nuclear present? have the United States' threats differed substantially from those of other nations? can anything be said concerning the long-term consequences of the threats? In a concluding chapter the authors summarize their findings, compare them to the conventional wisdom, and then, as a test, apply them to six historical cases. They end their study with a look at the Solidarity and Falklands crises, and a theoretical scenario that suggests the significance of their findings.
