An investigation of the computational turn in visual culture, centered on the entangled politics and pleasures of data and images. If the twentieth century was tyrannized by images, then the twenty-first is ruled by data. In Technologies of Vision, Steve Anderson argues that visual culture and the methods developed to study it have much to teach us about today's digital culture; but first we must examine the historically entangled relationship between data and images. Anderson starts from the supposition that there is no great divide separating pre- and post-digital culture. Rather than creating an insular field of new and inaccessible discourse, he argues, it is more productive to imagine that studying "the digital" is coextensive with critical models-especially the politics of seeing and knowing-developed for understanding "the visual." Anderson's investigation takes on an eclectic array of examples ranging from virtual reality, culture analytics, and software art to technologies for computer vision, face recognition, and photogrammetry. Mixing media archaeology with software studies, Anderson mines the history of technology for insight into both the politics of data and the pleasures of algorithms. He proposes a taxonomy of modes that describe the functional relationship between data and images in the domains of space, surveillance and data visualization. At stake in all three are tensions between the totalizing logic of data and the unruly chaos of images.

Set in the wild and wonderful Kootenay region of British Columbia, this novel probes the on-going battle between environmentalists and loggers over the forests both groups love--but for very different reasons. Author Steve Anderson has evenly divided the debate, allowing his characters to fully present their perspectives and the reader to decide who is right and who is wrong. But this time, the dispute has catastrophic results. The message is clear: confrontation is not the answer.
Sharply drawn characters and a fast-paced plot make "Cleacut Cause" a must for fiction readers interested in the fate of the ancient forests.

Reunited brothers confront a secret Allied betrayal in postwar Munich. Occupied Munich, 1946: Irina, a Cossack refugee, confesses to murdering a GI, but American captain Harry Kaspar doesn't buy it. As Harry scours the devastated city for the truth, it leads him to his long-lost German brother, Max, who returned to Hitler's Germany before the war. Max has a questionable past, and he needs Harry for the cause that could redeem him: rescuing Irina's stranded clan of Cossacks who have been disowned by the Allies and are now being hunted by Soviet death squads the cold-blooded upshot of a callous postwar policy. As a harsh winter brews, the Soviets close in and the Cold War looms, Harry and Max desperately plan for a risky last-ditch rescue on a remote stretch of the German-Czech border. A mysterious visitor from Max's darkest days shadows them. Everyone is suspect, including Harry's lover, Sabine, and Munich detective Hartmut Dietz both of whom have pledged to help. But before the Kaspar brothers can save the innocent victims of peace, grave secrets and the deep contempt sown during the war threaten to damn them all.

Part sea yarn, part guide book, part history, part culinary journal, this book relates a couple's experiences and impressions during a five-year, 16-country circumnavigation of the Mediterranean Sea in their sailboat. Here you will read of the compromises and surprising benefits of living in a small space afloat, of the tight-knit but welcoming community that is cruising sailors, of unexpected and wonderful encounters with locals, of Mediterranean food in all its magnificent variations, and of adventures ashore like camel riding in Tunisia, ballooning in Cappadocia, and camping with Bedouins in Jordan. Running throughout are the challenges of maintaining a yacht and sailing it into unfamiliar waters, told in non-technical language through anecdotes sometimes harrowing but more often merely amusing. It's all here.

The Losing Role (Paperback): Steve Anderson The Losing Role (Paperback)

R207 Discovery Miles 2 070 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the last winter of WWII a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join an absurdly desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan - he'll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he'd once abandoned. Max the performer is hardly a soldier let alone a double-crossing commando, yet in the deadly Battle of the Bulge he has to fool battle-shocked American GIs as well as dodge discovery by his reckless German comrades. Belgium's Ardennes forest becomes a snowbound hell and the magical America he'd loved is lost to him, replaced by a somber invading juggernaut. In the end, Max's gambles will lead him to a grim but honest payoff. Part espionage thriller, part expatriate noir and the first in a series, The Losing Role is based on an actual false flag operation that's been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.

R201 Discovery Miles 2 010 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

From Kingston-upon-Hull to Kempton Park and from Northamptonshire to New Zealand, the stench of death was rising. Kosovan Encephalopathy Syndrome would take no prisoners. And the family Talpidae, which had borne the brunt of so much slaughter since time immemorial, had now become Public Enemy No.1. As scientists confront the seemingly-irreconcilable concepts of karma and evolution, their quest leads them via an abandoned bank vault in Albania to the oldest hotel in England. Adult themes, non-PC humour and more than a passing reference to Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un, Waitrose, MUTS and ISIS combine to paint the bleakest of pictures for the future of mankind and the animal kingdom. "Karma - Where it all went wrong" is the book that lawyers, a unitary council and a village primary school sought to censor. You'd never believe it until you look inside...

Can an idealist from the city stop his estranged friend in the country from exposing a grim and damning secret from their past? On the surface, Greg Simmons seems an utterly improbable informant. He's an idealistic, Cascadia independence proponent from the city of Portland. When the FBI calls on Greg to go undercover to investigate a dangerous militia movement out in rural Oregon, he knows exactly why: his long-estranged friend from the country, Donny Wilkie, could have deep ties to the militia. Greg doesn't want the FBI's help. He needs to pursue the threat all on his own, because his true motives run far deeper making sure that his former friend will never reveal a damning secret from their past. Greg strikes out for the remote small town of Pineburg, a fish out of water. As he grapples with his and Donny's relationship and why it soured, as the threats to his worldview and to hiding the grim truth darken and mount, he discovers that no one is really who they seem, least of all himself. The dark misdeeds that both he and Donny covered up for so long threaten to reap their toll in the most deadly way.
