Lindsey, Gene
Saudi Arabia is the centre of religious life for over one billion Muslims. It is the birthplace of Islam, Wahhabism, Osama bin Laden and most of the 9/11 hijackers. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia controls over one quarter of the world's diminishing oil reserves and billions of dollars worth of investments in the West and is often referred to as the only 'family-owned business in the United Nations'. The way the Saudis think, express themselves, act, work and solve problems is of increasing and overwhelming significance to the world. This candid, penetrating view of the culture, history and evolution of Saudi Arabia offers a thorough understanding of how the country developed and why things are as they are. 410pp.

The goal of the 7th International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS-7) is to exchange and stimulate research ideas that make future robots and systems more intelligent and autonomous. This conference emphasizes that intelligence should and could best be illustrated by systems that can directly sense and act in their own environment without demanding detailed supervision from humans. As more and more robots are entering our daily life, researchers in IAS are facing increasingly many challenges in how to construct, control, and interact with such systems. The IAS-7 conference provides an exciting environment for researchers to present and discuss their novel theoretical results, implementations, and applications. A total of 71 technical papers were submitted by authors from 15 countries, representing more than 40 universities and research institutions. The overall outcome of the revision process is an excellent selection of papers that showcase the research of autonomous systems today. 414pp.

Risjord, Norman K.
In "Shining Big Sea Water", historian Norman K Risjord offers a grand tour of Lake Superior's remarkable history, taking readers through the centuries and into the lives of those who have travelled the lake and inhabited its shores. Through lively, informative chapters, Risjord begins with the lake's cataclysmic geological birth, then explores the lives of native peoples along the shore before European contact and during the fur trade, showing how Superior functioned as an unusual "blue water highway" for Indians, early explorers, industries, and settlers. He outlines the development of such cities as Sault Ste.Marie, Michigan; Ashland, Wisconsin; and Two Harbors, Minnesota, and tells the fascinating histories of life-saving lighthouses and famous shipwrecks. In the final chapter, Risjord looks to the future, offering a clear-eyed account of the environmental and economic challenges faced by America's largest freshwater lake. Interspersed throughout the book are handy tips for travelers, highlighting historically significant sites that illustrate key pieces of Lake Superior's natural and human history, including national lakeshores, in the United States and provincial parks in Canada.178pp.
