Schama, Simon
"Rough Crossings" is the astonishing story of the struggle to freedom by thousands of African-American slaves who fled the plantations to fight behind British lines in the American War of Independence. With gripping, powerfully vivid story-telling, Simon Schama follows the escaped blacks into the fires of the war, and into freezing, inhospitable Nova Scotia where many who had served the Crown were betrayed in their promises to receive land at the war's end. Their fate became entwined with British abolitionists: inspirational figures such as Granville Sharp, the flute-playing father-figure of slave freedom, and John Clarkson, the 'Moses' of this great exodus, who accompanied the blacks on their final rough crossing to Africa, wher they hoped that freedom would finally greet them. 447pp.

Grid technologies are rising with the next generation of Internet by defining a powerful computing paradigm. Grid could be used as a technology "glue" providing users with a uniform way to access resources by means of several devices. These technologies can provide a support for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) by enabling new learning environments based on collaboration, real direct experience, personalization, ubiquity, accessibility and contextualization. Nevertheless, to be effectively used in TEL, Grid must be complemented with other elements like semantics and educational modeling; leading to the concept of "Learning Grid" as defined in the homonymous Special Interest Group (SIG) of the European Network of Excellence "Kaleidoscope: Shaping the Scientific Evolution of Technology Enhanced Learning".The key challenge that Kaleidoscope is facing is the scientific and structural integration of the European TEL research. In this context, the Learning Grid SIG aims at contributing to the achievement of an improvement in TEL practices through the definition of open, distributed and pervasive environments for effective human learning taking into account that effective learning requires an active attitude of learners and that learning is a social and collaborative activity so requiring a technology that allows for active and realistic experiments, personalization, knowledge creation and evolution, as well as autonomous and dynamic creation of communities. The first section of the book is about the concept of Learning Grid and related technologies. The second chapter analyses and compares existing languages for the dynamic composition of distributed learning resources and services in a Learning Grid. 245pp.

Edited By Marneros,Andreas and Angst,Jules
This book is written by international specialists on bipolar disorders. All fields of this topic are covered: the history and the evolution of concepts of bipolar disorders from ancient Greece to modern times. Original quotations of Hippocrates and Aretaeus of Cappadocia, the views of the European founders of modern psychiatry, and modern operational and biological data are considered. The role of personality, temperament, interactions, as well as of neurotransmitter, endocrinological factors and other biological parameters are extensively discussed together with genetic and epidemiological findings. Topics such as 'soft spectrum disorders', mixed states, schizoaffective bipolars, and long-term prognosis are extensively considered, and the role of modern antipsychotics, antidepressants, and mood stabilizers is another main point of the book. Special aspects of children, adults, and women's disorders are also discussed. The costs of treatment of bipolar disorders are described in their own chapter. In this book can be found a combination of the classical use in literature of bipolar disorders with modern data-oriented use. 483pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of spine and slight mark to front board.
