Java for Students Book Description:

Aware that many students need a careful introduction to programming and that they respond well to graphical illustration, this concise book adopts a visual approach to programming. Throughout the text, programs that use graphical images are emphasized to clearly demonstrate all the important programming principles. The authors use a spiral approach to programming concepts; introducing concepts simply early on, then in a more sophisticated way later, (e.g., objects are integrated throughout five chapters). Java for Students emphasizes the use of applets but also shows how to program free-standing applications. The authors have been careful to put together a text that covers the powerful features of Java and presents the language to students as both a fun and useful tool.

The Interrogation of Ephraim Sparkman and Other Stories Book Description:

This small volume of 4 short stories, the whole of which can be read in one sitting, takes the reader on what the author hopes will prove a fascinating journey. In the first story, from which the book takes its name, The Interrogation of Ephraim Sparkman, we travel, by the magic of words, through time and space to Mars in the distant future. In The Buddha’s Smile we find ourselves in a small Kalmyk village seized by the German SS deep inside the Soviet Union during World War 11. Next, comes The Blame Game. It’s 1975 and we are standing with the accused in the dock at the Old Bailey criminal court in London charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The last story, The Rabbi, follows the destiny of a young man from Berlin in 1938 to the battle of Stalingrad in 1943.

Art Museums in Modern Society Book Description:

This volume explores the process of transformation that is affecting art museums and their role in the modern world. It considers art museums from the perspectives of their social disposition, pedagogical practices, and the education they offer. The book embraces modern perspectives as a part of the international process where museums’ activities are transforming from the established traditional approach to more innovative methods, such as the digital environment, websites development, and social activities, among others. The volume is divided into three parts wherein museums are considered as agents of different spheres in society, pedagogy, and education. The transformation that modern museums have to accept is rooted in new challenges that society offers, and the book offers various examples that could be inspirational for developing new strategies for museums. It also features interviews with museum educators throughout the world in which they share their experience and vision on the questions presented here.

Sherlock s Home La Casa Vuota Book Description:

Il 1903 vide L'avventura della casa vuota e Il ritorno di Sherlock Holmes al 221B di Baker Street in cui egli spiega l'inganno della propria morte alle Cascate del Reichenbach al suo fedele amico, il Dr. John Watson. Il 2012 vede il Crimine della Casa Vuota in cui Undershaw, un tempo casa di Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, si trova in degrado e a rischio di essere distrutta per sempre. Commissionata da Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stesso, Undershaw ha assistito alla creazione di molte delle sue opere più famose, incluso Il mastino dei Baskerville e Il ritorno di Sherlock Holmes. É un edificio che merita di essere preservato, per la nazione Britannica, e per il mondo intero, per sempre. Purtroppo, al momento, l'edificio è minacciato dagli imprenditori edilizi, che intendono dividere la casa in tre unità separate e costruirne altre cinque. I permessi edilizi per i lavori sono già stati approvati dal Waverley Borough Council. L'Undershaw Preservation Trust, (UPT), con Mark Gatiss (BBC Sherlock) come sostenitore, è un fondo che si occupa della conservazione e protezione di questo edificio di importanza culturale, e sta portando avanti una campagna per revocare questa decisione, affinché la casa possa essere riportata allo splendore originale, e vissuta come la dimora che Sir Arthur Conan Doyle aveva progettato. Questo libro è una raccolta di racconti brevi e poesie su Sherlock Holmes, scritti da fan di tutto il mondo a sostegno della campagna 'Save Undershaw', persino la copertina è stata ideata dai fan. I diritti d'autore del libro sono destinati all' UPT allo scopo di conservare questa meravigliosa abitazione per le future generazioni di fan di Doyle, appassionati di Sherlock Holmes, e amanti della letteratura di tutti i tipi.
