Hanes Walton, Jr.: Architect of the Black Science of Politics By Robert C. Smith
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 99 Pages | ISBN : 3319755706 | 1.41 MB
Hanes Walton Jr. (1941-2013) was a pioneering and prolific scholar of African American politics, and the architect of the modern scientific study of the subject.The first person to earn a PhD in political science from Howard University, Walton devoted his career to laying the intellectual foundations in his writings, and lobbying for the establishment of black politics as a subfield in political science. This study comprehensively analyses Walton’s corpus, while providing a history of the development of the study of black politics in political science. It concludes with an analysis of how the subfield has evolved since Walton’s pioneering work.
Mapping South American Latina/o Literature in the United States: Interviews with Contemporary Writers By Juanita Heredia
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 241 Pages | ISBN : 331972391X | 3.51 MB
This collection of interviews demonstrates that U.S. Latinas/os of South American background have contributed pioneering work to U.S. Latina/o literature and culture in the twenty-first century. In conversation with twelve significant authors of South American descent in the United States, Juanita Heredia reveals that, through their transnational experiences, they have developed multicultural identities throughout different regions and cities across the country. However, these authors’ works also exemplify a return to their heritage in South America through memory and travel, often showing that they maintain strong cultural and literary ties across national borders. As such, they have created a new chapter in trans-American history by finding new ways of imagining South America from their formation and influences in the U.S.
Shock and Materials By Stepan S. Batsanov
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 9811078858 | 10.42 MB
This book highlights how the properties and structure of materials are affected by dynamic high pressures generated by explosions, projectile impacts, laser compression, electric discharge or ball milling. Starting with the basics of shock-wave physics and an outline of experimental techniques, it then surveys dynamic compressibility and equations of state of various substances, phase transitions and syntheses of novel compounds under shock. It covers various industrial applications including hardening of metals and grinding (fragmentation) of solids, saturation of solids with defects for use as catalysts, production of superhard materials (synthetic diamond, BN (boron nitride)) and nanomaterials, especially nanodiamond, and discusses state-of-the-art techniques such as combining dynamic and static compression to obtain monolithic materials.
Neurodegenerative Diseases: Clinical Aspects, Molecular Genetics and Biomarkers, Second Edition By Daniela Galimberti
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 412 Pages | ISBN : 3319729373 | 9.08 MB
This book gives an overview of the current knowledge on the most common neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, Lewy body dementia,Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and additional less common neurodegenerative diseases. Both clinical and basic aspects of each disease are treated, including novel diagnostic criteria, old and new treatments, basic discoveries (genetics, epigenetics and molecular biology), and translation of basic research into biomarkers for early diagnosis, particularly to identify peripheral biomarkers.

Investigations in Computational Sarcasm (Cognitive Systems Monographs) By Aditya Joshi
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 150 Pages | ISBN : 9811083959 | 3.65 MB
This book describes the authors’ investigations of computational sarcasm based on the notion of incongruity. In addition, it provides a holistic view of past work in computational sarcasm and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Sarcastic text is a peculiar form of sentiment expression and computational sarcasm refers to computational techniques that process sarcastic text.
Mathematica for Bioinformatics: A Wolfram Language Approach to Omics By George Mias
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 397 Pages | ISBN : 3319723766 | 34.69 MB
This book offers a comprehensive introduction to using Mathematica and the Wolfram Language for Bioinformatics. The chapters build gradually from basic concepts and the introduction of the Wolfram Language and coding paradigms in Mathematica, to detailed worked examples derived from typical research applications using Wolfram Language code.
Gender and HIV in South Africa: Advancing Women’s Health and Capabilities By Courtenay Sprague
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 423 Pages | ISBN : 1137559969 | 5.52 MB
This book addresses the ongoing problem of HIV in black South African women as a health inequity. Importantly, it argues that this urgent problem of justice is changeable. Sprague uses the capabilities approach to bring a theory of health justice, together with multiple sources of evidence, to investigate the complex problem of HIV and accompanying poor health outcomes in black South African women.
