Rosiek, Jan
This is a comprehensive interpretation of Paul de Man's theoretical itinerary prior to his emergence as the doyen of deconstruction in America. The book includes sections on Hegelian poetics, Heidegger's thought, and romanticism, the main areas in which de Man carried out his critical work before 1970. His encounters with dialectical negations in Mallarme and Blanchot, Heidegger's existential analytic poetics of Being, the antagonism of symbol and allegory in Benjamin, and Derrida's deconstruction of Rousseau all present opportunities for tracing the figures which, in various guises, remained crucial in de Man's Theory: being inaccessible, intention unfulfillable, truth unattainable - in brief, figures of failure. 247pp. N.B. Corners bumped. Spine slightly scuffed.

Graddol, David and Boyd-Barrett, Oliver
This volume is one of the four readers compiled as part of the course Language and Literacy (Code E825), which is one module of the (UK) Open University MA in Education programme. The collection of papers in this volume is the outcome of a collaboration between two editors: the first a linguist and the second a researcher in media studies. The papers reflect the growing convergence of the two disciplines in their treatment of the text. Analyses of film and television have for some time drawn on linguistics theory - particularly the structuralist model of language provided by Saussure. More recently, linguists have themselves developed and turned their attention to the kinds of text which pervade everyday life, and that has at last generated more principled accounts of the interaction between words and image, and more generally of the interplay and tension between verbal and non-verbal modes of meaning. This anthology is thus concerned with the complex ways in which texts communicate: at how the verbal and visual element of texts can be theorized within a linguistic framework; and at postmodern approaches which strive to "decanter" the text itself and explore the historical social contexts of their production and consumption. The collection should be of wide interest to students and researchers in linguistics, media studies, and communication. 282pp.

Howard, P. J. A.
Research workers in the field of environmental science are often faced with the problem of interpreting a multivariate set of observations. Commonly, especially with survey data, the problem is not statistical in the sense of hypothesis testing, rather it is a question of reducing a complex set of data to an efficient summary, a process which may result in the generation of hypotheses. In recent years a technique has been developed for coping with this problem - pattern analysis. This book gives a detailed description of pattern analysis and explains how to apply it in an ecological context. It aims to provide a practical basis which can be readily understood. As well as the various techniques of pattern analysis themselves, the book also discusses the types of data for which they are suitable, the problems likely to be encountered and the best strategies to adopt.254pp.
