Marcus,Jon
This is both an exciting history and a tour guide, illustrating the fascinating development of the lighthouses of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island. Marcus and Kelly explain and show the technological evolution of lighthouses, the development of lights and lenses, the architecture of lighthouses, their construction and maintenance on remote sites, the life of the Lighthouse Service keepers, and the movement today to preserve and restore lights. Also included are excerpts from original logs and a descriptive tour of the last manned lighthouse in America, Boston Light, with its three resident Coast Guardsmen and their dog. The stunning photography includes intriguing images of lights in all kinds of weather -- plus photographs that bring readers inside the structures, showing the curling stairways, lenses, the keeper's homes, and more. A comprehensive appendix lists all the current New England lighthouses. 160pp.

Cheesman, Clive and Williams, Jonathan
Slight crease on back cover.Throughout history, individuals have pictured themselves becoming emperor, king, queen or president. Some have proved successful, others not, while some were pure fantasists. Many produced coins, banknotes, stamps and heraldic devices as proof of the status they claimed. In exploring the issues surrounding political legitimacy, this volume brings together evidence for an amazing variety of would-be sovereigns and phantom countries, rebel states and royal imposters, ranging from ancient to modern times and from the Orient to the New World. The extraordinary personalities, their individual stories and the images they employed are interesting in themselves, but set in a wider context they also demonstrate the changing tradition of pretence and rebellion. The authors examine fundamental concepts of loyalty and group identity in a commentary on the nature of legitimate power and established sovereignty. Their analysis reveals the convenient fictions, collective myths and pseudo-histories inherent even today in the construction and maintenance of a dynasty or modern nation. 192pp.

Ritrovato,P. Et al.(Eds.)
Volume 127 in the Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications Series.There is a paradigm shift in Informatics in general and in technologies enhancing human learning in particular. The debate between the "evolutionaries" - those that wish to optimize and refine current approaches - and the "revolutionaries" - those that support a fundamental change of approach - is quite actual. Within the Internet communities, the debate is hidden behind the words "semantic WEB" versus "semantic Grid"; within educational technologists between "content/resource centered" and "conversation centered" e-learning, or either between "teaching" and "pedagogy" on the one side, and "learning" and "communities of practice" on the other. In general, in Informatics, the shift from a product-page oriented to a service-conversation oriented view may possibly impact most if not all the foreseen applications, in e-learning, but also in e-science, e-democracy, e-commerce, e-health, etc. Part A of the book is dedicated to Position papers: visions about what to do and why to do it in the next years. The remaining parts (B to D) offer partial answers to "how" to do it. Part B concerns what we called: Content-centered services.239pp.
