♥ Book Title : Conversations with Ursula K. Le Guin
☯ Full Synopsis : "Conversations with Ursula K. Le Guin assembles interviews with the renowned science-fiction and fantasy author of The Left Hand of Darkness, The Dispossessed, The Lathe of Heaven, and the Earthsea sequence of novels and stories. For nearly five decades, Le Guin (b. 1929) has enjoyed immense success--both critical and popular--in science fiction and fantasy. But she has also published well-received works in such genres as realistic fiction, poetry, children's literature, criticism, and translation. In the pieces collected here, Le Guin takes every interview not as an opportunity to recapitulate long-held views but as an occasion for in-depth intellectual discourse. In interviews spanning over twenty-five years of her literary career, including a previously unpublished piece conducted by the volume's editor, Le Guin talks about such diverse subjects as U.S. foreign policy, the history of architecture, the place of women and feminist consciousness in American literature, and the differences between science fiction and fantasy. Carl Freedman is professor of English at Louisiana State University and is the author of Critical Theory and Science Fiction; The Incomplete Projects: Marxism, Modernity, and the Politics of Culture; and George Orwell: A Study in Ideology and Literary Form."Article| Carl Howard Freedman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Crystallographic Book List
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is a Crystallographic Book List - but what is Crystallography? We take the following working definition. Crystallography is the branch of science concerned with the description and understanding of the structure and properties of condensed states of matter in terms of the spatial relationships of atoms and interatomic forces in an extended array_ Moreover A Crystallographer is a scientist with an active interest in Crystallography, either for its own sake or for the contribution it can make to some other branch of science. (Obviously this defi nition is not an exclusive one) The problem of deciding what books should be included in this List made it necessary to think what topics are comprised in Crystallography, and to clarify the issue a draft syllabus was constructed, and is set out below. Though it probably covers too wide a spectrum for anyone indivi dual (or University Department) to deal with in detail, there is no part of it which would not be regarded by some Crystallographers as quite essential. It is apparent that some topics are central to Crystallo graphy - notably crystal geometry and symmetry, diffraction by perfectly and imperfectly periodic structures, methods of structure analysis, and the relation of physical and chemical properties to structure - and others are peripheral, linking the central topics to other fields of knowledge."Article| Helen D.

♥ Book Title : A First Course in the Mathematical Foundations of Thermodynamics
☯ Full Synopsis : "Research in the past thirty years on the foundations of thermodynamics has led not only to a better understanding of the early developments of the subject but also to formulations of the First and Second Laws that permit both a rigorous analysis of the consequences of these laws and a substantial broadening of the class of systems to which the laws can fruitfully be applied. Moreover, modem formulations of the laws of thermodynamics have now achieved logically parallel forms at a level accessible to under graduate students in science and engineering who have completed the standard calculus sequence and who wish to understand the role which mathematics can play in scientific inquiry. My goal in writing this book is to make some of the modem develop ments in thermodyamics available to readers with the background and orientation just mentioned and to present this material in the form of a text suitable for a one-semester junior-level course. Most of this presentation is taken from notes that I assembled while teaching such a course on two occasions. I found that, aside from a brief review of line integrals and exact differentials in two dimensions and a short discussion of infima and suprema of sets of real numbers, juniors (and even some mature sophomores) had sufficient mathematical background to handle the subject matter. Many of the students whom I taught had very limited experience with formal and rigorous mathematical exposition."Article| D.R. Owen| Statement ..."
