Summary of The Alice Network Book Description:

Summary of The Alice Network - A Comprehensive Summary The Alice Network by Kate Quinn tells the story of unlikely friends and their quest for revenge on a brutal man. Evelyn “Eve” Gardiner left her job as a spy in WWI to kill René, a warfare profiteer whom she blamed for the loss of the life of her best friend. Eve believed she would never get the revenge she desired when she was told René was dead. Many years later, Charlotte “Charlie” St. Clair came to Eve looking for her cousin, Rose, who had become linked with René and supposedly died during WWII. Figuring out that her enemy was alive after all, Eve set out to find and kill him. At the same time, Eve and Charlie found similarities in their lives and bonded as friends. Charlie’s mother had brought Charlie from their home in New York City to England for an abortion. Charlie manipulated their trip plans so that she could go to Eve, a woman whose name she had found in the search for her cousin, Rose. Charlie believed her cousin was still alive and was hoping that Eve could help find her. Eve agreed to assist Charlie but had her ulterior motive. René, the man for whom Rose had worked at one point, was Eve’s enemy. She had made it her life’s work to hunt René down and kill him. In WWI, Eve had wanted to take part in the war; however, she was unable to do so not only because she was a woman but also because she had a stammer. She was recruited as a spy and worked in René’s restaurant, Le Lethe, in German-occupied Lille. Because Eve could speak German, she should snoop on the German officials René catered to in his restaurant. Even though Eve had hoped that René would not notice her, he requested she become his mistress. Eve agreed because she believed she might be fired from her job and lose her task as a spy if she did not. After Eve and Lili were arrested while looking to get through a German checkpoint on a one-person safe passage pass, René closed his restaurant to take care of Eve. He suspected she became a spy and wanted to find out for sure. At some point in the night, René smashed all of Eve’s knuckles as he questioned her about the lady with whom she had been arrested. The following day René turned Eve over to the Germans. He claimed that she had informed him of everything about Lili while she was under the influence of a dose of opium that he gave her. Eve blamed herself for betraying her friend, a betrayal that brought about Lili, Eve, and Violette, any other spy, being sentenced to jail. Lili died in prison. Eve blamed herself for Lili’s death. In the meantime, Charlie found out that her cousin, Rose, had died in a bloodbath within the village of Oradour-Sur-Glane. Eve discovered through her research that René had turned Rose in as a member of the resistance, which meant that he was responsible for Rose’s death. Charlie agreed to assist Eve to find René, which resulted in Eve killing René and then turning the gun on herself. Charlie convinced Eve to live by telling her that she had found out that René had lied to Eve. Eve had never given René any facts about Lili or the Alice Network, a collection of women spies that Lili oversaw. The data instead came from an old cellmate of Lili’s.

Network Science A Decade Later Book Description:

Network Science, A Decade Later--the result of NSF-funded research that looked at the experiences of a set of science projects which use the Internet--offers an understanding of how the Internet can be used effectively by science teachers and students to support inquiry-based teaching and learning. The book emphasizes theoretical and critical perspectives and is intended to raise questions about the goals of education and the ways that technology helps reach those goals and ways that it cannot. The theoretical perspective of inquiry-based teaching and learning in which the book is grounded is consistent with the current discipline-based curriculum standards and frameworks. The chapters in Part I, "State of the Art," describe the history and current practice of network science. Those in Part II, "Looking Deeply," extend the inquiry into network science by examining discourse and data in depth, using both empirical data and theoretical perspectives. In Part III, "Looking Forward," the authors step back from the issues of network science to take a broader view, focusing on the question: How should the Internet be used--and not used--to support student learning? The book concludes with a reminder that technology will not replace teachers. Rather, the power of new technologies to give students both an overwhelming access to resources--experts, peers, teachers, texts, images, and data--and the opportunity to pursue questions of their own design, increases the need for highly skilled teachers and forward-looking administrators. This is a book for them, and for all educators, policymakers, students involved in science and technology education.

Security in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks Book Description:

Ad hoc and sensor networks are making their way from research to real-world deployments. Body and personal-area networks, intelligent homes, environmental monitoring or inter-vehicle communications: there is almost nothing left that is not going to be smart and networked. While a great amount of research has been devoted to the pure networking aspects, ad hoc and sensor networks will not be successfully deployed if security, dependability, and privacy issues are not addressed adequately. As the first book devoted to the topic, this volume constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the First European Workshop on Security in Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks, ESAS, 2004, held in Heidelberg, Germany in August 2004. The 17 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. Among the key topics addressed are key distribution and management, authentication, energy-aware cryptographic primitives, anonymity and pseudonymity, secure diffusion, secure peer-to-peer overlays, and RFIDs.

The Secretary Book Description:

‘Don’t cry.’ Christoph uncurled her clenched fingers. ‘You know why you must work for him: to keep your real work away from your family, to keep them safe so that, if you get caught, they won’t be taken. One day you’ll be able to tell them all of that.’ Germany 1940. As secretary to an influential businessman, Magda Aderbach spends her days sending party invitations to high-ranking Nazis, and her evenings distributing pamphlets for the resistance. When she is approached about a job by the leader of the SS, Magda embarks upon a dangerous double life smuggling secrets out of his office. It’s a deadly game, and eventual exposure is a certainty, but Magda is driven by a need to keep the man she loves safe as he fights against the Nazis… Forty years later. Nina Dahlke’s heart pounds as she leaves everything she has ever known and steps into an uncertain future carrying a forged passport, a few Deutschmarks, and the image of an ornate stone villa, The Tower House, seared into her memory. She has never forgotten the fear in her grandmother’s voice when Nina found the drawing of the elegant building hidden in her wardrobe. And now, with nothing left to lose, Nina is determined to uncover the past her grandmother ran from. But not even Nina’s wildest imaginings come close to the truth that she discovers when she reaches her destination… A haunting and poignant novel about bravery, loss and redemption during the second World War. A beautiful read for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, We Were the Lucky Ones and The Alice Network.
