Book Summary:

South Africa needs no introduction to the global narratives of violence and crimes against women and children. With reported sexual offences exceeding 60000 and incidents of murder totalling 17805 for the 2014/2015 period, our countrys notoriety in this arena contributes to the landscape within which The Symbol of No Escape plays out. As forensic thriller The Symbol of No Escape is an emergent property of qualities that not too many authors are able to harness. These include Dr Tanya Robinsons practical experience and extensive work with the abused child, her knowledge in forensic psychopathology and her laudable scholarly credentials that underpins each page with legitimacy whilst powerfully infusing the characters of protagonist Dr Claire and villain Dann Carmen. The reader is systematically drawn in and absorbed in the lifeworld of Dr Claire, a profiler and expert assessor who is tasked to create a profile that would help close the case against depraved child serial murderer and family killer, Dann Carmen. His crimes are brutal and bizarre, yet Dr Claires assertion that Dann instils no fear in me paves the way for explicating her goal which is to establish what contributed to him becoming a monster (Marcel Van der Watt, University of South Africa, Department of Police Practice).

Book Summary:

In the writing of prefaces for works of this sort, most editors report being faced with similar challenges and have much in common in relating how these challenges are met. They acknowledge that their paramount ob jective is to provide more than an overview of topics but rather to offer selective critical reviews that will serve to advance theory and research in the particular area reviewed. The question of the appropriate audience to be addressed is usually answered by directing material to a potential audience of social scientists, graduate students, and, occasionally, ad vanced undergraduate students. Editors who are confronted with the problem of structuring their material often explore various means by which their social science discipline might be subdivided, then generally conclude that no particular classification strategy is superior. In elabo rating on the process by which the enterprise was initiated, editors typ ically resort to a panel of luminaries, who provide independent support for the idea and then offer both suggestions for topics and the authors who will write them. Editors usually concede that chapter topics and content do not reflect their original conception but are a compromise between their wishes and the authors' expertise and capabilities. Editors report that inevitable delays occur, authors drop out of projects and are replaced, and new topics are introduced. Finally, editors frequently con fess that the final product is incomplete, with gaps occurring because of failed commitments by authors or because authors could not be secured to write certain chapters.

Book Summary:

This book presents a variety of widely used algorithms, expressing them in a pure functional programming language to make their structure and operation clearer to readers. In the opening chapter the author introduces the specific notations that constitute the variant of Scheme that he uses. The second chapter introduces many of the simpler and more general patterns available in functional programming. The chapters that follow introduce and explain data structures, sorting, combinatorial constructions, graphs, and sublist search. Throughout the book the author presents the algorithms in a purely functional version of the Scheme programming language, which he makes available on his website. The book is supported with exercises, and it is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses on programming techniques.

Book Summary:

This lively, compact textbook introduces readers to semantics - the study of how we construct meaning in communication. Easy to follow, and with a clear structure, it explains formal terminology in a simple and understandable way, without using formal notation or logic, and draws on dozens of examples from up-to-date empirical research findings. Offering a tight integration of classic semantic issues with cognitive science, Javier Valenzuela provides a complete and coherent overview of the main topics in this area, including a review of the empirical methods used in semantic theorizing, and discussions of both non-traditional and new topics, such as how meaning is acquired by children and how meaning is constructed cross-linguistically. Featuring illustrations, exercises, activities, suggestions for further reading, highlighted key terms, and a comprehensive glossary, this book is accessible to beginners and undergraduates, including those from non-linguistic backgrounds with no prior knowledge of linguistic analysis. It will be an essential resource for courses in English language, English studies, linguistics and the cognitive sciences.

Book Summary:

Following A. N. Whitehead, this book takes up the principal challenge facing a natural philosopher who wishes to engage with Nature while rescuing both Life and Thought from materialistic approaches which rob them of their 'quicknesses'. Selecting certain insights and intuitions from the writings of Peirce, Coleridge, Deleuze and Nietzsche, the author proffers a remedy for the pervasive nihilism of 'the moderns' which illustrates Deleuze's suggestion that philosophy should be imaged as a dynamic collage that is forever in the making.
