Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
In Goliath, New York Times bestselling author Max Blumenthal takes us on a journey through the badlands and high roads of Israel-Palestine, painting a startling portrait of Israeli society under the siege of increasingly authoritarian politics as the occupation of the Palestinians deepens. Beginning with the national elections carried out during Israel's war on Gaza in 2008-09, which brought into power the country's most right-wing government to date, Blumenthal tells the story of Israel in the wake of the collapse of the Oslo peace process. As Blumenthal reveals, Israel has become a country where right-wing leaders like Avigdor Lieberman and Bibi Netanyahu are sacrificing democracy on the altar of their power politics; where the loyal opposition largely and passively stands aside and watches the organized assault on civil liberties; where state-funded Orthodox rabbis publish books that provide instructions on how and when to kill Gentiles; where half of Jewish youth declare their refusal to sit in a classroom with an Arab; and where mob violence targets Palestinians and African asylum seekers scapegoated by leading government officials as "demographic threats." Immersing himself like few other journalists inside the world of hardline political leaders and movements, Blumenthal interviews the demagogues and divas in their homes, in the Knesset, and in the watering holes where their young acolytes hang out, and speaks with those political leaders behind the organized assault on civil liberties. As his journey deepens, he painstakingly reports on the occupied Palestinians challenging schemes of demographic separation through unarmed protest. He talks at length to the leaders and youth of Palestinian society inside Israel now targeted by security service dragnets and legislation suppressing their speech, and provides in-depth reporting on the small band of Jewish Israeli dissidents who have shaken off a conformist mindset that permeates the media, schools, and the military. Through his far-ranging travels, Blumenthal illuminates the present by uncovering the ghosts of the past—the histories of Palestinian neighborhoods and villages now gone and forgotten; how that history has set the stage for the current crisis of Israeli society; and how the Holocaust has been turned into justification for occupation. A brave and unflinching account of the real facts on the ground, Goliath is an unprecedented and compelling work of journalism.
From C numbers to Q numbers
The history of quantum theory is a maze of conceptual problems. In this lucid and learned book, Olivier Darrigol tracks the role of formal analogies between classical and quantum theory, from Planck's first introduction of the quantum of action to Dirac's formulation of quantum mechanics. In so doing, Darrigol illuminates not only the history of quantum theory but also the role of analogies in scientific thinking and theory change. The most remarkable result of such analogical argument in quantum theory was Bohr's correspondence principle which, in Darrigol's words, "performed the acrobatic task of bridging two mutually contradictory theories (classical electrodynamics and atomic theory), without diminishing the contrast between them". By analyzing the origins, development, and applications of this principle, From c-Numbers to q-Numbers explains the remarkable fruitfulness of the research done under Bohr's guidance between 1916 and 1925 and shows why Heisenberg claimed that quantum mechanics was born as "a quantitative formulation of the correspondence principle". With a physicist's sure hand, Darrigol examines the formal and the epistemological aspects of the analogy between classical and quantum mechanics. Unlike previous works, which have tended to focus on qualitative, global arguments, he follows the lines of mathematical reasoning and symbolizing, and by doing so he is able to show the motivations of early quantum theorists more precisely - and provocatively - than ever before. For instance, Darrigol demonstrates that a universal principle of elementary chaos underlay Planck's analogies, and that Bohr's correspondence principle was related to his elaboration of a minimal-quantumtheoretical language. Most striking, Darrigol reveals how Dirac's personal conception of the relations among algebra, geometry, use of the analogy between c-numbers and and physics conditioned his highly creative q-numbers. Original, erudite, and witty, From c-Numbers to q-Numbers sets a new standard for the philosophically perceptive and mathematically precise history of quantum mechanics. For years to come it will influence historical and philosophical discussions of twentieth-century physics.

The Right to Innocence
Based on the author's extensive counseling experiences, this volume offers a seven-step recovery program for men and women who were sexually abused as children, helping them heal and face a positive future
Homeopathy is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional medicine, but many people are still unsure whether it really works. In this book, a Stanford-trained physician examines the science that lies behind homeopathy's success. Chapters include: principles, clinical evidence, physics of potentized water, effects on cells and tissues, transmission to living organisms, and remedy archetypes.
Music to Move the Stars
Jane Hawking, divorced wife of Professor Stephen Hawking and mother of his three children has written a memoir which relates the story of a marriage begun in optimism, despite facing the terrible odds of motor neurone disease, and of its gradual decline which became inescapably apparent as Hawking`s academic career and renown began to soar. Jane Hawking writes of her marriage and remembers the vigorous young man with whom she fell in love prior to the onset of his debilitating motor neurone disease. Moreover, she tells of the difficulties of looking after a wheelchair-bound husband and three small children - all demanding attention 24 hours a day. These experiences, coupled with the author`s evident inner-strength can offer inspiration to others faced with a similar family situation. The collapse of the high profile Hawking marriage, provoked by Stephen`s affair with a nurse, is related in honest detail and Jane`s recent re-marriage to an old family friend offers the hope of happy ending to a life of struggle and alienation.
