    Godforsaken Sea: The True Story of a Race Through the World's Most Dangerous Waters [Derek Lundy] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Derek Lundy- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Anchor- ISBN-13: 9780385720007- Páginas: 304- Dimensiones: 20.22cm. x 13.08cm. x 1.57cm.- Peso: 0.30 kg.- Descripción:"The best book ever written about the terrifying business of single-handed sailing--.  Lundy tells a harrowing tale, as tight and gripping as The Perfect Storm or Into Thin Air."--San Francisco ChronicleA chilling account of the world's most dangerous sailing race, the Vendee Globe, Godforsaken Sea is at once a hair-raising adventure story, a graceful evocation of the sailing life, and a thoughtful meditation on danger and those who seek it.This is the story of the 1996-1997 Vendee Globe, a solo sailing race that binds its competitors to just a few, cruelly simple rules: around the world from France by way of Antarctica, no help, no stopping, one boat, one sailor. The majority of the race takes place in the Southern Ocean, where icebergs and gale-force winds are a constant threat, and the waves build to almost unimaginable heights.  As author Derek Lundy puts it: "try to visualize a never-ending series of five- or six-story buildings moving toward you at about forty miles an hour." The experiences of the racers reveal the spirit of the men and women who push themselves to the limits of human endeavor--even if it means never returning home.  You'll meet the gallant Brit who beats miles back through the worst seas to save a fellow racer, the sailing veteran who calmly smokes cigarette after cigarette as his boat capsizes, and the Canadian who, hours before he disappears forever, dispatches this message: "If you drag things out too long here, you're sure to come to grief." Derek Lundy elevates the story of one race into an appreciation of those thrill-seekers who embody the most heroic and eccentric aspects of the human condition...

    Nuclear Weapons: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) [Joseph M. Siracusa] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Joseph M. Siracusa- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Oxford University Press- ISBN-13: 9780198727231- Páginas: 152- Dimensiones: 11.18cm. x 17.02cm. x 1.02cm.- Peso: 0.01 kg.- Descripción:Despite not having been used in anger since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the atomic bomb is still the biggest threat that faces us in the 21st century. As Bill Clinton's first secretary of defense, Les Aspin, aptly put it, "The Cold War is over, the Soviet Union is no more. But the post-Cold War world is decidedly not post-nuclear." For all the effort to reduce nuclear stockpiles to zero, it seems that the bomb is here to stay. This Very Short Introduction reveals why. The history and politics of the bomb are explained: from the technology of nuclear weapons, to the revolutionary implications of the H-bomb, and the politics of nuclear deterrence. The issues are set against a backdrop of the changing international landscape, from the early days of development through the Cold War.In this new edition, Joseph M. Siracusa includes a new concluding chapter, moving away from the emphasis of nuclear weapons in the "age of terrorism", to the significant lessons to be learnt from the history of the nuclear weapons era. Siracusa shows that because 21st century nuclear proliferation has deep roots in the past, an understanding of the lessons of this nuclear history is paramount for future global policies to be successful.ABOUT THE SERIES:The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

    Principles of Brain Evolution [Georg F. Striedter] (Tapa Dura)

    - Autor: Georg F. Striedter- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Dura- Editorial: Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press- ISBN-13: 9780878938209- Páginas: 436- Dimensiones: 18.29cm. x 24.13cm. x 2.03cm.- Peso: 1.12 kg.- Descripción:Brain evolution is a complex weave of species similarities and differences, bound by diverse rules or principles. This book is a detailed examination of these principles, using data from a wide array of vertebrates but minimizing technical details and terminology. It is written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and more senior scientists who already know something about "the brain," but want a deeper understanding of how diverse brains evolved.The book opens with a brief history of evolutionary neuroscience, then introduces the various groups of vertebrates and their major brain regions. The core of the text explores: what aspects of brain organization are conserved across the vertebrates; how brains and bodies changed in size as vertebrates evolved; how individual brain regions tend to increase or decrease in size; how regions can become structurally more (or less) complex; and how neuronal circuitry evolves. A central theme emerges from these chapters--that evolutionary changes in brain size tend to correlate with many other aspects of brain structure and function, including the proportional size of individual brain regions, their complexity, and their neuronal connections. To explain these correlations, the book delves into rules of brain development and asks how changes in brain structure impact function and behavior. The two penultimate chapters demonstrate the application of these rules, focusing on how mammal brains diverged from other brains and how Homo sapiens evolved a very large and "special" brain...

    Rereading the Sophists: Classical Rhetoric Refigured [Professor Susan C. Jarratt] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Professor Susan C. Jarratt- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Southern Illinois University Press- ISBN-13: 9780809322244- Páginas: 184- Dimensiones: 21.59cm. x 13.97cm. x 1.27cm.- Peso: 0.17 kg.- Descripción:This book is a critically informed challenge to the traditional histories of rhetoric and to the current emphasis on Aristotle and Plato as the most significant classical voices in rhetoric. In it, Susan C. Jarratt argues that the first sophists—a diverse group of traveling intellectuals in the fifth century B.C.—should be given a more prominent place in the study of rhetoric and composition. Rereading the ancient sophists, she creates a new lens through which to see contemporary social issues, including the orality/literacy debate, feminist writing, deconstruction, and writing pedagogy.The sophists pleasure in the play of language, their focus on historical contin-gency, and the centrality of their teaching for democratic practice were sufficiently threatening to their successors Plato and Aristotle that both sought to bury the sophists under philosophical theories of language. The censure of Plato and Aris-totle set a pattern for historical views of the sophists for centuries. Following Hegel and Nietzsche, Jarratt breaks the pattern, finding in the sophists a more progressive charter for teachers and scholars of reading and writing, as well as for those in the adjacent disciplines of literary criticism and theory, education, speech communication, and ancient history.In tracing the historical interpretations of sophistic rhetoric, Jarratt suggests that the sophists themselves provide the outlines of an alternative to history-writing as the discovery and recounting of a set of stable facts. She sees sophistic use of narrative in argument as a challenge to a simple division between orality and literacy, current discussions of which virtually ignore the sophists. Outlining similarities between ecriture feminine and sophistic style, Jarratt shows that contemporary feminisms have more in common with sophists than just a style; they share a rhetorical basis for deployment of theory in political action. In her final chapter, Jarratt takes issue with accounts of sophistic pedagogy focusing on technique and the development of the individual. She argues that, despite its employment by powerful demagogues, sophistic pedagogy offers a resource for todays teachers interested in encouraging minority voices of resistance through language study as the practice of democracy...

    If Our Bodies Could Talk: Operating and Maintaining a Human Body [James Hamblin] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: James Hamblin- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Anchor- ISBN-13: 9781101970829- Páginas: 400- Dimensiones: 20.83cm. x 14.73cm. x 2.03cm.- Peso: 0.39 kg.- Descripción:"If you want to understand the strange workings of the human body, and the future of medicine, you must read this illuminating, engaging book." Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Gene In 2014, James Hamblin launched a series of videos for The Atlantic called "If Our Bodies Could Talk."  With it, the doctor-turned-journalist established himself as a seriously entertaining authority in the field of health. Now, in illuminating and genuinely funny prose, Hamblin explores the human stories behind health questions that never seem to go away and which tend to be mischaracterized and oversimplified by marketing and news media.  He covers topics such as sleep, aging, diet, and much more:   * Can I "boost" my immune system? * Does caffeine make me live longer? * Do we still not know if cell phones cause cancer? * How much sleep do I actually need? * Is there any harm in taking a multivitamin? * Is life long enough?   In considering these questions, Hamblin draws from his own medical training as well from hundreds of interviews with distinguished scientists and medical practitioners.  He translates the (traditionally boring) textbook of human anatomy and physiology into accessible, engaging, socially contextualized, up-to-the-moment answers. They offer clarity, examine the limits of our certainty, and ultimately help readers worry less about things that dont really matter. If Our Bodies Could Talk is a comprehensive, illustrated guide that entertains and educates in equal doses.From the Hardcover edition...
