Fo, Dario.

Accidental Death of an Anarchist / Dario Fo ; adapted by Gavin Richards from a translation by Gillian Hanna, inrtoduced by Stuart Hood.

London : Methuen Drama, 1997.

Methuen contemporary dramatists

Abstract: In its first two years of production in Italy, Dario Fo's notorious Accidental Death of an Anarchist was seen by over half a million people. It has since been performed all over the world, and become a classic of twentieth-century drama. A sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window. 'I ought to warn you that the author of this sick little play, Dario Fo, has the traditional, irrational hatred of the police common to all narrowminded left-wingers and so I shall, no doubt, be the unwilling butt of endless anti-authoritarian jibes.' (Inspector Bertozzo, Central Italian Police HQ) 'A marvellous concept: a zany political farce.' (Michael Billington) This edition has been adapted by Gavin Richards from Gillian Hanna's translation and features an introduction by Stuart Hood and a preface by Dario Fo.

Geographic information systems for geoscientists : modelling with GIS / Graeme F. Bonham-Carter.

1st ed.

Oxford ; New York : Pergamon, 1994.

Computer methods in the geosciences ; v. 13

Abstract: This valuable reference book is unique in its coverage of examples from the geological sciences, many centred on applications to mineral exploration. The underlying principles of GIS are stressed and emphasis placed on the analysis and modelling of spatial data with applications to site selection and potential mapping. The book commences with a definition of GIS and describes a case study of mapping mineral potential. The ways in which spatial data are organized with models (raster, vector, relational) are discussed and data structures, such as quadtrees and topological structures are introduced. Data input including digitizing, geographic projections and conversions is covered together with output (visualization, representation of colour and spatial query). Spatial data transformations are dealt with thoroughly and attention is paid to map analysis and modelling as related to single maps, map pairs and multiple maps respectively. Methods of quantifying the associations between pairs of maps are also emphasized. Finally, examples of landfill site selection and mineral potential mapping illustrate the application of map algebra for combining maps and tables with models, employing Boolean logic, index weighting, fuzzy logic and probability methods such as weights of evidence. There is an extensive glossary of terms, and references that accompany each chapter. It also contains 40 pages of colour illustrations.

The civilization of Europe in the Renaissance / John Hale.

1st American ed.

New York : Atheneum ; Toronto : Maxwell Macmillan Canada ; New York : Maxwell Macmillan International, 1994. poi: New York : Touchstone, 1994

Abstract: The masterpiece of Britain's leading Renaissance scholar. Winner of the Time-Life Silver Pen Award and The Royal Society of Literature Award. 'A superb evocation of the Europe of the "long 16th-century", wonderfully fresh and rich in its copious illustrative detail, full of innumerable delights. The book is the summation of John Hale's career as a historian, and as the crowning achievement of a master-designer whose richly fabricated works have given so much pleasure.' John Elliot, Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford. 'The Civilization of Europe in the Renaissance' is the most ambitious achievement of Britain's leading Renaissance historian. John Hale has painted on a grand canvas an enthralling portrait of Europe and its civilization at a moment when 'Europe' first became an entity in the minds of its inhabitants. John Hale's Renaissance has no compartments. With astonishing range and subtlety of learning, he paints a gigantic picture of the age, enlivened by a multiplicity of themes, people and ideas. It contains memorable descriptions of painting, sculpture, poetry, architecture and music, but Hale is not simply concerned with the arts. He examines the dramatic changes during the period in religion, politics, economics and global discoveries. And throughout his book approaches the art of war and the art created for princes from the point of view of their impact on the imaginations, sensibilities and lives of ordinary people.

A concise history of Italy / Christopher Duggan.

Cambridge [England] ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1994.

Cambridge concise histories

Abstract: Since its creation in 1861, Italy has struggled to develop an effective political system and a secure sense of national identity. This concise history, which covers the period from the fall of the Roman empire in the west to the present day, looks in particular at the difficulties Italy has faced during the last two centuries in forging a nation state. The opening chapters consider the geographical and cultural obstacles to unity, and survey the long centuries of political fragmentation in the peninsula since the sixth century. It was this legacy of fragmentation which Italy's new rulers had to strive to overcome when the country became united, more by accident than design, in 1859-61. The book aims to weave together political, economic, social and cultural history, and stresses in particular the alternation between materialist and idealist programmes for forging a nation state.

Ang Lee

Eat drink man woman.


Abstract: His follow-up to his breakthrough success The Wedding Banquet (1993), Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman (1994) is another wise comedy-drama of manners about life, love, and the Taiwanese generation gap. With food as the sensory analogue to familial relationships, Lee's attention to detail deftly mines the varied emotions as well as the humor in master chef Mr. Chu's attempts to deal with his adult daughters' different stabs at independence (and his own burgeoning romance) as he loses his sense of taste. The superb opening scene of Mr. Chu's bravura preparation of the customary, and resented, Sunday family feast not only reveals the affection for his daughters that he cannot articulate, but also is guaranteed to inspire cravings for gourmet Chinese food. Praised for its charm and skill, Eat Drink Man Woman became another genial art house hit for Lee and earned him his second Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film.

Rosenberg, Nathan

Exploring the black box : technology, economics, and history / Nathan Rosenberg.

Cambridge [England] ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1994.

Abstract: The process of technological change takes a wide variety of forms. Propositions that may be accurate when referring to the pharmaceutical industry may be totally inappropriate when applied to the aircraft industry or to computers or forest products. The central theme of Nathan Rosenberg's new book is the idea that technological changes are often 'path dependent', in the sense that their form and direction tend to be influenced strongly by the particular sequence of earlier events out of which a new technology has emerged. The book advances the understanding of technological change by explictly recognising its essential diversity and path-dependent nature. Individual chapters explore the particular features of new technologies in different historical and sectoral contexts. This book presents a unique account of how technological change is generated and the processes by which improved technologies are introduced.

De-scribing empire : post-colonialism and textuality / edited by Chris Tiffin and Alan Lawson.

London ; New York : Routledge, 1994.

Abstract: De-Scribing Empire is a stunning collection of first-class essays. Collectively they examine the formative role of books, writing and textuality in imperial control and the fashioning of colonial world-views. The volume as a whole puts forward strategies for understanding and neutralising that control, and as such is a major contribution to the field. It will be invaluable for students in post-colonialist criticism.
