Summary

“A range of naval experts . . . build[s] a diverse and deeply-thought out picture of where maritime warfare is now and where it is likely to go.”—Army Rumour Service   What is the purpose of navies in the modern world, and what types of warship does this require? This book tackles these questions by looking at naval developments, both technological and operational, in the quarter century since the end of the Cold War. It provides the overall political and economic context, assesses significant naval operations from the first Gulf War to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, reviews changes in the objectives and composition of the principal fleets, describes major design developments amongst the main warship types, and examines wider technological and operational developments, including naval aviation, shipbuilding and manning.   “A high quality publication with a great many superb photographs. For those wishing to keep fully informed on world naval affairs, it is excellent value and strongly recommended.”—Scuttlebutt   “This new book follows the successful approach and format of the very popular naval annual Seaforth’s World Naval Review. Under the same editor, a new team of specialists have been assembled to write authoritative articles in their particular fields of expertise. The absorbing text is fully supported by many outstanding images—Most Recommended.”—Firetrench   “Provides a most useful contextual analysis of the post-Cold War period, explaining how technological developments and a range of world events have variously shaped the fleets of today.”—Warship

Who are the women who keep bees and what can we learn from them? Beeconomy examines the fascinating evolution of the relationship between women and bees around the world.   Bee expert Tammy Horn profiles female beekeepers, describing their work and how they manage it; the sense of community they enjoy; how beekeeping is relevant to questions about globalization and politics—and how it provides an opportunity for a new sustainable economy, one that takes into consideration environment, children, and family needs.

    Humans have always had the need to tell. In the dark millennia of prehistory, people used fingers or made incisions on bones. There are about 4000 years early civilizations developed elaborate numbering system to record transactions from business to astronomical cycles. The hand tools calculation appear millennia later. Today, the prodigious complexity of calculations, as well as the whole set of activities with no apparent relationship to numbers are made by these sophisticated "electronic brains" called computers. Experts are rushing to point out that a computer is a brain, is just another tool, another machine designed to reduce the work or extend our dominion over the world. 
    In this book, you will learn more about the science of computing through subtle explanations and summarized chapters. Once pointed out the importance and necessity of the study of history in general and, more specifically, the history of science and technology, it is easy to see that the study of the History of Computing is an impressive relief in the vast landscape of scientific knowledge. Just remember that the impact of this technology in our society is immense and our increasing dependence on it.

    From woman’s suffrage to Babe Ruth’s home runs, from Louis Armstrong’s jazz to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s presidential terms, from the finale of one world war to the dramatic close of the second, War, Peace, and All That Jazz presents the story of some of the most exciting years in U.S. history.  With the end of World War I, many Americans decided to live it up, going to movies, driving cars, and cheering baseball games aplenty.  But alongside this post-WWI spree was high unemployment, hard times for farmers, ever-present racism, and, finally, the Depression, the worst economic disaster in U.S. history, flip-flopping the nation from prosperity to scarcity.  Along came one of our country’s greatest leaders, F.D.R., who promised a New Deal, gave Americans hope, and then saw them through the horrors and victories of World War II.  These three decades—full of optimism and despair, progress and Depression, and, of course, War, Peace, and All That Jazz--forever changed the United States.
