The State at War in South Asia Pradeep P. Barua
ISBN: 0803213441, 9780803213449
Publisher: University of Nebraska Press
Much research has been done on Western warfare and state building but very little on the military effectiveness of states, until now. Using South Asia as a case study, The State at War in South Asia examines how the state, from prehistory to modern times, has managed to wage war. The State at War in South Asia is the first book to cover such a vast period of South Asian military history-more than three thousand years. In doing so, Pradeep P. Barua explores the state's military effectiveness and moves beyond the western and nonwestern dichotomy characterized by most military analysis to date. He leads the reader through a selective study of significant battles, campaigns, and wars fought on the subcontinent. Barua combines this overview with an analysis of the state-building process, showing how the South Asian state has conducted war under its many political guises from the prehistoric and ancient periods to the modern era, with its threat of nuclear war. He challenges the historiographic idea that the Western way of war is superior, while examining in detail those battles, such as the Maratha-Afghan battle of 1763, that offer the most insight into the introduction of new tactics, organization, and technology. This meticulous study offers a panoramic view of the evolution of the South Asian state's military system and its contribution to the effectiveness of the state itself.
Pradeep P. Barua is an associate professor of history at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. He is the author of Gentlemen of the Raj: The Indian Army Officer Corps, 1817-1949.MORE EBOOKS:
Episodes in nineteenth and twentieth century Euclidean geometry Ross Honsberger
ISBN: 0883856395, 9780883856390
Publisher: The Mathematical Association of America
Professor Honsberger has succeeded in 'finding' and 'extricating' unexpected and little known properties of such fundamental figures as triangles, results that deserve to be better known. He has laid the foundations for his proofs with almost entirely synthetic methods easily accessible to students of Euclidean geometry early on. While in most of his other books Honsberger presents each of his gems, morsels, and plums, as self contained tidbits, in this volume he connects chapters with some deductive treads. He includes exercises and gives their solutions at the end of the book. In addition to appealing to lovers of synthetic geometry, this book will stimulate also those who, in this era of revitalizing geometry, will want to try their hands at deriving the results by analytic methods. Many of the incidence properties call to mind the duality principle; other results tempt the reader to prove them by vector methods, or by projective transformations, or complex numbers.MORE EBOOKS:
Future Perfect (Mass Customization) Stanley M. Davis
ISBN: 0201115131, 9780201115130
Publisher: Addison Wesley
From Publishers Weekly
In our aging postindustrial era, we're witnessing a technological explosion notes Davis, a Boston-based business consultant, and in this short but deeply provocative book he sets out "to give new meaning to time, space and matter in shaping tomorrow's business and organization." Readers will consistently nod in recognition as Davis ticks off what he sees happening today in business management as it has grown from the time of Henry Ford and GM's Alfred Sloan to what he considers the "hello from the future" that the Federal Express Corporationtoday's leading example of the holistic management approach as opposed to the mechanicalis shouting to business leaders. His insights into our already emerging "future perfect" economy of process, information and a host of intangibles made possible by the microchip is eye-opening. Admiring readers will conclude that Davis matches his own description of a certain Pakistani financial wizard"Gandhi in banker's pinstripes." 40,000 first printing; major ad/promo; Fortune Book Club and Macmillan Book Club alternates.

From Library Journal
Davis builds on an important vision that structure and style of organizational culture are the result of changes in the external environment, especially in science and technology. He presents examples featuring such high-tech wizardry as holograms, parallel processing, microcircuitry, and genetic engineering, and describes how Federal Express rose to prominence because its founder visualized how technology could be used to achieve overnight delivery. Unfortunately, much of this work trots out well-worn business anecdotes. Recommended only for general collections. BOMC/Fortune alternate.Gene R. Laczniak, Marquette Univ., Milwaukee

Nuclear Receptors as Drug Targets (Methods and Principles in Medicinal Chemistry) Eckhard Ottow, Hilmar Weinmann, Raimund Mannhold, Hugo Kubinyi, Gerd Folkers ebook pdf
ISBN: 3527318720, 9783527318728
"With increasing importance attributed to this area, the text is a welcome review of the current field.... The quality of the text is good with very readable chapters and many useful original literature references. The book will be clearly valuable for both academic and industrial groups engaged in drug discovery." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, March 2009)
"This is an excellent book for scientists interested in adding or expanding expertise in nuclear receptor drug discovery to their skill set. The chapters are timely, well referenced into the 2008 literature, and focused on the chemistry of successful and emerging therapeutic small molecules." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, March 10, 2009)
"The book is a good reference for medicinal chemists, pharmacologists and those working in the pharmaceutical industry." (RoSearch, December 2008)
From the Back Cover
Nuclear receptors are the site of action for some of the most widely used medications, namely oral contraceptives and related drugs derived from steroid hormones. Recent research has uncovered their pivotal role in a range of human diseases, including diabetes and metabolic syndrome, triggering a new wave of drug discovery efforts focused on this class of molecular targets.
Edited by two experts working at the pioneering pharmaceutical company and major global player in hormone-derived drugs, this handbook systematically treats the drug development aspects of all human nuclear receptors, including such recently characterized receptors as PPAR, FXR and LXR, and modern tools for nuclear receptor research.
With its contributions from authors working at leading pharmaceutical companies around the world providing examples and real-life data from their own experience, this is an invaluable reference for medicinal chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, pharmacologists and those working in the pharmaceutical industry.
