Alu lauva  Ž .Ronī vecākais

Šī grāmata — ar pilnīgi patstāvīgu sižetu — risina tālāk tā paša autora pazīstamo stāstu «Cīņa par uguni» (iznācis latviešu valodā 1965. gadā) un tēlo divu ak­mens laikmeta aizvēsturisko cilvēku — Una un Zura piedzīvojumus. Abi jaunekļi devušies tālā ceļojumā mek­lēt savai ciltij jaunus medību apgabalus. Ceļā viņi uz­sāk cīņu ar zobenzobu tīģeri mahairodu un milzu žņau­dzējčūsku, sadraudzējas ar meža ļaudīm un paglābj vi­ņus no kareivīgās asinskārās uguns ļaužu cilts, pieradina milzīgo alu lauvu, kas savukārt ne vienu reizi vien nāk palīgā jaunekļiem.

 Автор: Haave Christopher E


Lt Col Phil M. “Goldie” Haun (BS, Harvard University; MA, Vanderbilt University) is from Cecilia, Kentucky, a weapons school graduate, and had A-10 assignments in England, Korea, Germany, and Alaska. Colonel Haun attended ACSC and SAASS and is curently serving as the operational officer of the 355th Fighter Squadron (FS) at Eielson AFB, Alaska.

Col Christopher E. “Kimos” Haave (USAFA) commanded 81st FS “Panthers” during Operation Allied Force (OAF) and is currently the commander of the 612th Air Operations Group at Davis-Monthan AFB, New Mexico. Kimos had A-10 assignments in England and Germany and flew AT-38s in New Mexico. Colonel Haave is Olmsted Scholar and a graduate of the French Joint Defense College.


There are certain dates in the history of warfare that mark real turning points…. Now there is a new date on the calendar: June 3, 1999, when the capitulation of President Milosevic proved that a war can be won by airpower alone.

—John Keegan, London’s Daily Telegraph

Colonels Haave and Haun organized the firsthand accounts of members of the 40th Expeditionary Operations Group into this book. Their descriptions of the application of airpower—a new wingman’s first combat sortie, a support officer’s view of an FS relocation during combat, and Sandy pilot’s efforts to find and rescue a downed F-177 pilot—provide the reader with a legitimate insight into an air war at the tactical level and the airpower that helped convice Milosevic to capitulate.

Обложка книги Atēnu Taīda Atēnu Taīda

 Автор: Jefremov Ivan


Pazīstamā krievu padomju rakstnieka (1907–1972) pēdējais romāns vēsta par notikumiem 4. g. s. p. m. ē., kad Maķedonijas Aleksandra karagājienu un grieķu filozofu humānistu mācību ietekmē veidojās plašāks pasaules un cilvēka esamības redzējums.

Kā sarkans pavediens romānam cauri vijas doma par mākslas un tās iedvesmotājas — sievietes nezūdošo daili.

Romāna «Atēnu Taīda» pamatā ir kāda antīkās vēstures avotos pazīstama epizode: Persepoles — vienas no persiešu valsts galvaspilsētām — nodedzināšana; to ierosināja slavenā Atēnu hetēra, kas pavadīja Maķedonijas Aleksandru karagājienā.

 Автор: Braithwaite Rodric


As former ambassador to Moscow, Rodric Braithwaite brings unique insights to the Soviet war in Afghanistan. The story has been distorted not only by Cold War propaganda but also by the myths of the nineteenth century Great Game. It moves from the high politics of the Kremlin to the lonely Russian conscripts in isolated mountain outposts. The parallels with Afghanistan today speak for themselves.

‘A superb achievement of narrative history, sensitive writing and exciting fresh research’: so wrote Simon Sebag Montefiore about Rodric Braithwaite’s bestseller Moscow 1941. But those words, and many others of praise that were given it, could equally apply to his new book.

Англосаксонские хроники» - древнейшая летопись Англии, охватывающая период с римского завоевания до 1154 г. Ее составление началось в конце IX в. при короле Альфреде на основе "Истории" Беды, сохранившихся отрывков мерсийских и уэссекских хроник и устных преданий. Сохранилось 9 рукописей хроник написанных на англосаксонском языке и частью на латыни. Ранняя часть хроник до 731 г. в основном взята из сочинения Беды, но содержит много дополнении, касающихся истории Южной Англии (особенно Уэссекса), Лапидарные записи хроник постепенно становятся более длинными и дополняются вставными новеллами; особенно интересны сведения о событиях IX-XI вв., для которых хроники являются часто единственным источником. Расхождения между рукописями довольно значительны, однако в основном это касается более позднего периода. Большинство английских переводов ориентировано на сводную версию. Настоящий перевод сделан по английскому тексту хроник: The Saxon Chronicle. Tr. A. Savage. London, 1982, Текст сверен по изданию: Two of the Saxon Chronicles Parallel / Ed. C. Plummer. Oxford, 1892.

Обложка книги A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich

 Автор: Delattre Lucas


In 1943 a young official from the German foreign ministry contacted Allen Dulles, an OSS officer in Switzerland who would later head the Central Intelligence Agency. That man was Fritz Kolbe, who had decided to betray his country after years of opposing Nazism. While Dulles was skeptical, Kolbe’s information was such that he eventually admitted, “No single diplomat abroad, of whatever rank, could have got his hands on so much information as did this man; he was one of my most valuable agents during World War II.”

Using recently declassified materials at the U.S. National Archives and Kolbe’s personal papers, Lucas Delattre has produced a work of remarkable scholarship that moves with the swift pace of a Le Carri thriller.

No single weapon has spread so much raw power to so many people in so little time—and had such a devastating effect—as the AK-47 assault rifle. This book examines the legacy of this world-changing weapon, from its creation as means of fighting the Nazis to its ubiquity today in every kind of conflict, from civil wars in Africa to gang wars in L.A.

Бомбардировщик «Ланкастер» вызывает у англичан и жителей Британского Содружества чувство привязанности, смешанное с гордостью – примерно так же, как В-17 «Летающая Крепость» у американцев. Если «Спитфайр» олицетворял боевой дух Содружества перед лицом казавшегося неизбежным поражения, то вид и звук моторов армад «Ланкастеров», отправлявшихся в ночной рейд в центр нацистской Германии. воплощали желание измученных войной людей увидеть немецкую военную машину уничтоженной.

Обложка книги A History of Women in Russia A History of Women in Russia

 Автор: Clements Barbara Evans


A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2013

Synthesizing several decades of scholarship by historians East and West, Barbara Evans Clements traces the major developments in the history of women in Russia and their impact on the history of the nation. Sketching lived experiences across the centuries, she demonstrates the key roles that women played in shaping Russia's political, economic, social, and cultural development for over a millennium. The story Clements tells is one of hardship and endurance, but also one of achievement by women who, for example, promoted the conversion to Christianity, governed estates, created great art, rebelled against the government, established charities, built the tanks that rolled into Berlin in 1945, and flew the planes that strafed the retreating Wehrmacht. This daunting and complex history is presented in an engaging survey that integrates this scholarship into the field of Russian and post-Soviet history.

Обложка книги A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War" A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War"

 Автор: Boullosa Carmen, Wallace Mike


The “War Against Drugs”: who started it, and why? What are its consequences in real terms, not mere statistics, for the people most affected by it?

One hundred thousand deaths later — with the vast majority of those killed innocent citizens, such as the 43 teachers college students recently killed in Guerrero — the solution to peace requires a radical rethinking of how America, and its neighbors, approach the illegal drug trade.

The origins of this cataclysm of violence go back a century: and no two writers are better suited to this investigation than Carmen Boullosa and Mike Wallace, two legendary prize-winning writers, one Mexican and the other American. Through them we learn of economic disaster, mass migration of families fleeing violence, and the chaos that has ensued as direct results of this disastrous policy promulgated by the U.S. Government. Before the attack on a supposedly rampant drug “problem,” Mexico had one of the lowest crime rates and lowest addiction rates in Latin America. Now, it may be the most crime-ridden, drug-infested country on the planet.

Обложка книги A Secret History of Brands A Secret History of Brands

 Автор: MacNabb Matt


We live our lives immersed in name brand products. It’s hard to drive down the street without seeing a plethora of chain restaurants, car dealerships, branded clothing they’re all around us. What most of us don’t know is that the origins of many of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world are shrouded in controversy, drug use and sometimes even addled with blatant racism.

A Secret History of Brands cuts through the rumors and urban legends and paints a picture of the true dark history of famous brands, like Coca-Cola, Hugo Boss, Adidas, Ford, Bayer, Chanel and BMW among others. Explore the mystery of the cocaine content of Coca-Cola, the Hitler-Henry Ford connection and why Bayer is famous for asprin, but began their journey with Heroin, and how Kellogg’s Corn Flakes were crafted to deter sexual arousal. Thoroughly researched, McNabb details firsthand conducted interviews alongside fairly weighed research to present the decisive view of brands histories that you haven’t heard of yet.

About the Author: Pop culture historian Matt McNabb has spent the better part of the past twenty years researching the history of comic books, toys, film and television and their effect on our culture. He regularly features in publications such as SFX Magazine, Variety, MacLeans Magazine, Brick Journal, on CNN and BBC Radio. Author of Batman’s Arsenal: An Encyclopedic Chronicle and Ghostbusters Collectables, A Secret History of Brands is Matt’s third book.

Обложка книги Architects of Death Architects of Death

 Автор: Bartlett Karen


Topf and Sons designed and built the crematoria at the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buchenwald, Belzec, Dachau, Mauthausen and Gusen. At its height sixty-six Topf triple muffle ovens were in operation – forty-six of which were at Auschwitz.

In five years the gas chambers and crematoria of Auschwitz had been the engine of the holocaust, facilitating the murder and incineration of more than one million people, most of them Jews.

Yet such a spectacularly evil feat of engineering was designed not by the Nazi SS, but by a small respectable firm of German engineers: the owners and engineers of J. A. Topf and Sons. These were not Nazi sadists, but men who were playboys and the sons of train drivers. They were driven not by ideology, but by love affairs, personal ambition and bitter personal rivalries to create the ultimate human killing and disposal machines – even at the same time as their company sheltered Nazi enemies from the death camps.

The intense conflagration of their very ordinary motives created work that surpassed in its inhumanity even the demands of the SS. In order to fulfil their own ‘dreams’ they created the ultimate human nightmare.

Обложка книги Atomic Thunder: The Maralinga Story Atomic Thunder: The Maralinga Story

 Автор: Tynan Elizabeth


In September 2016 it will be 60 years since the first British mushroom cloud rose above the plain at Maralinga in South Australia. The atomic weapons test series wreaked havoc on Indigenous communities and turned the land into a radioactive wasteland.

In 1950 Australian prime minister Robert Menzies blithely agreed to atomic tests that offered no benefit to Australia and relinquished control over them – and left the public completely in the dark. This book reveals the devastating consequences of that decision. After earlier tests at Monte Bello and Emu Field, in 1956 Australia dutifully provided 3200 square kilometres of South Australian desert to the British Government, along with logistics and personnel.

How could a democracy such as Australia host another country’s nuclear program in the midst of the Cold War? In this meticulously researched and shocking work, journalist and academic Elizabeth Tynan reveals how Australia allowed itself to be duped. Maralinga was born in secret atomic business, and has continued to be shrouded in mystery decades after the atomic thunder stopped rolling across the South Australian test site. This book is the most comprehensive account of the whole saga, from the time that the explosive potential of splitting uranium atoms was discovered, to the uncovering of the extensive secrecy around the British tests in Australia many years after the British had departed, leaving an unholy mess behind.

‘Just as witnesses to our A-bomb tests turned their backs on the blasts, Australia turned its back on the memory of one of the most diabolical times in our history. Compulsive reading? Make that compulsory. This is a brilliant book.’

– Phillip Adams

Обложка книги Annoying Annoying

 Автор: Palca Joe, Lichtman Flora


In ANNOYING: The Science of What Bugs Us, NPR science correspondent Joe Palca and Flora Lichtman, multimedia editor for NPR’s Science Friday, take readers on a scientific quest through psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and other disciplines to uncover the truth about being annoyed. What is the recipe for annoyance? For starters, it should be temporary, unpleasant, and unpredictable, like a boring meeting or mosquito bites.

For example, why is that guy talking on his cell phone over there so annoying? For one, it’s unpleasant and distracting. Second, we don’t know, and can’t control, when it will end. Third, we can’t not listen! Our brains are hardwired to pay close attention to people talking and follow the conversations. The loud chatter pulls our brains away to listen to half of something we’re never going to understand. In ANNOYING Palca and Lichtman can talk about annoyingness in any context: business, politics, romance, science, sports, and more.

How often can you say you’re happily reading a really ANNOYING book? The insights are fascinating, the exploration is fun, and the knowledge you gain, if you act like you know everything, can be really annoying.

 Автор: Allen James


This little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that -

"They themselves are makers of themselves"

by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.

Обложка книги Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

 Автор: Harvey Steve


Steve Harvey, the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years, whether it's through the "Strawberry Letters" segment of his program or while on tour for his comedy shows. These are women who can run a small business, keep a household with three kids in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. Yet when it comes to relationships, they can't figure out what makes men tick. Why? According to Steve it's because they're asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man. In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve lets women inside the mindset of a man and sheds lights on concepts and questions such as:

– The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?

– How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.

– When to introduce the kids. And what to read into the first interaction between your date and your kids.

– The five questions every woman should ask a man to determine how serious he is.

– And more…

Sometimes funny, sometimes direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships.

Обложка книги As Nature Made Him As Nature Made Him

 Автор: Colapinto John


In 1967, after a twin baby boy suffered a botched circumcision, his family agreed to a radical treatment that would alter his gender. The case would become one of the most famous in modern medicine—and a total failure. As Nature Made Him tells the extraordinary story of David Reimer, who, when finally informed of his medical history, made the decision to live as a male. A macabre tale of medical arrogance, it is first and foremost a human drama of one man’s—and one family’s—amazing survival in the face of terrible odds.

 Автор: Ballantyne Andrew


This highly original and sophisticated look at architecture helps us to understand the cultural significance of the buildings that surround us. It avoids the traditional style-spotting approach and instead gives us an idea of what it is about buildings that moves us, and what it is that makes them important artistically and culturally. The book begins by looking at how architecture acquires meaning through tradition, and concludes with the exoticism of the recent avant-garde period. Illustrations of particular buildings help to anchor the general points with specific examples, from ancient Egypt to the present day.

F. Nīcšes Zaratustra latviešu valodā ierunājās 1908. gadā Viļa Plūdoņa tulkojumā mēnešraksta «Zalktis» 2. numurā un līdz 1939. gadam pieredzēja sešus izdevumus. F. Nīcšes ideju parādīšanos Latvijā nesen pētījusī Nora Ikstena** atzīmē, ka «Tā runāja Zaratustra» tulkojums savulaik ir uztverts kā trešais nozīmīgākais veikums pēc E. Glika Bībeles un Raiņa-Aspazijas «Fausta» tulkojumiem. Kaut arī latviešu gudrajiem vēl nāksies izstaigāt taku takas un radīt vērtību vērtības, lai reiz varbūt spētu uzklausīt «Antikristu», taču jau uzreiz cilvēki ironizēja par sevi: «lai iegūtu mācīta vira patenti, vajadzēja dievināt «Zaratustru»». Šīs dievināšanas pēdas, protams, visvieglāk ir pamanīt latviešu literātu tekstos, bet «mācīto vīru» guvums no Zaratustras bija ne tikai viņnu «mākslinieciskās neatkarības nepieciešamība» (N. Ikstenas pieticīgais formulējums) - kopuma vispirms kā «mācīto vīru» nepieciešamība un pēc tam kā realitāte tapa Latvijas valsts.*** Nākamreiz Zaratustra uz Latviju tika saukts 1989. gadā, kad S Latvijas Kultūras fonds sarūpēja V Plūdoņa tulkojuma faksimilizdevumu. Daži vārdi no tā tika atzīti par Latvijas valsts argumenta cienīgiem. Aigars Jirgens patapināja no Nīcšes astoņus vārdus «nevis jūsu grēks - jūsu pieticība kliedz pret debesīm»,**** kauninot tos tautfrontiešus, kuriem joprojām rēgojās brīvā Latvija brīvā Krievijā. No viņu puses atbildi sniedza Guntis Valujevs, arī iepinot Nīcšes uzvārdu sava raksta nosaukumā: Latvijas neatkarī­ba, lūk, nedrīkst tikt uzskatīta par mērķi, bet tikai par līdzekli cil­vēku labklājībai un vēl dažām labām lietām, kurām, ja gribat zināt, pēc «lielā maksimālista» Nīcšes prāta, traucē tieši «demo­krātiskie aizspriedumi», «mazo valstu komēdijas», «nacionālās neirozes»…"*****

 Автор: Gyatso Tenzin


Of the many problems we face today, some are natural calamities and must be accepted and faced with equanimity. Others, however, are of our own making, created by misunderstanding, and can be corrected. One such type arises from the conflict of ideologies, political or religious, when people fight each other for petty ends, losing sight of the basic humanity that binds us all together as a single human family. We must remember that the different religions, ideologies, and political systems of the world are meant for human beings to achieve happiness. We must not lose sight of this fundamental goal and at no time should we place means above ends; the supremacy of humanity over matter and ideology must always be maintained.

Обложка книги Absence of Mind: The Dispelling of Inwardness from the Modern Myth of the Self Absence of Mind: The Dispelling of Inwardness from the Modern Myth of the Self

 Автор: Robinson Marilynne


In this ambitious book, acclaimed writer Marilynne Robinson applies her astute intellect to some of the most vexing topics in the history of human thought — science, religion, and consciousness. Crafted with the same care and insight as her award-winning novels, Absence of Mind challenges postmodern atheists who crusade against religion under the banner of science. In Robinson’s view, scientific reasoning does not denote a sense of logical infallibility, as thinkers like Richard Dawkins might suggest. Instead, in its purest form, science represents a search for answers. It engages the problem of knowledge, an aspect of the mystery of consciousness, rather than providing a simple and final model of reality.

By defending the importance of individual reflection, Robinson celebrates the power and variety of human consciousness in the tradition of William James. She explores the nature of subjectivity and considers the culture in which Sigmund Freud was situated and its influence on his model of self and civilization. Through keen interpretations of language, emotion, science, and poetry, Absence of Mind restores human consciousness to its central place in the religion-science debate.

Обложка книги Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction

 Автор: Ward Colin


What do anarchists want? It seems easier to classify them by what they don't want, namely, the organizations of the State, and to identify them with rioting and protest rather than with any coherent ideology. But with demonstrations like those against the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund being blamed on anarchists, it is clear that an explanation of what they do stand for is long overdue.

Colin Ward provides answers to these questions by considering anarchism from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, historical, and international, and by exploring key anarchist thinkers, from Kropotkin to Chomsky. He looks critically at anarchism by evaluating key ideas within it, such as its blanket opposition to incarceration, and policy of "no compromise" with the apparatus of political decision-making. Can anarchy ever function effectively as a political force? Is it more "organized" and "reasonable" than is currently perceived? Whatever the politics of the reader, Ward's argument ensures that anarchism will be much better understood after experiencing this book.

Обложка книги After the Sheikhs : The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies After the Sheikhs : The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies

 Автор: Davidson Christopher Michael


The Gulf monarchies (Saudi Arabia and its five smaller neighbours: the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain) have long been governed by highly autocratic and seemingly anachronistic regimes. Yet despite bloody conflicts on their doorsteps, fast-growing populations, and powerful modernising and globalising forces impacting on their largely conservative societies, they have demonstrated remarkable resilience. Obituaries for these traditional monarchies have frequently been penned, but even now these absolutist, almost medieval, entities still appear to pose the same conundrum as before: in the wake of the 2011 Arab Spring and the fall of incumbent presidents in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, the apparently steadfast Gulf monarchies have, at first glance, re-affirmed their status as the Middle East s only real bastions of stability. In this book, however, noted Gulf expert Christopher Davidson contends that the collapse of these kings, emirs, and sultans is going to happen, and was always going to. While the revolutionary movements in North Africa, Syria, and Yemen will undeniably serve as important, if indirect, catalysts for the coming upheaval, many of the same socio-economic pressures that were building up in the Arab republics are now also very much present in the Gulf monarchies. It is now no longer a matter of if but when the West s steadfast allies fall. This is a bold claim to make but Davidson, who accurately forecast the economic turmoil that afflicted Dubai in 2009, has an enviable record in diagnosing social and political changes afoot in the region.

1 November 2006. Alexander Litvinenko is brazenly poisoned in central London. Twenty two days later he dies, killed from the inside. The poison? Polonium; a rare, lethal and highly radioactive substance. His crime? He had made some powerful enemies in Russia.

Based on the best part of a decade’s reporting, as well as extensive interviews with those closest to the events (including the murder suspects), and access to trial evidence, Luke Harding’s A Very Expensive Poison is the definitive inside story of the life and death of Alexander Litvinenko. Harding traces the journey of the nuclear poison across London, from hotel room to nightclub, assassin to victim; it is a deadly trail that seemingly leads back to the Russian state itself.

Harding argues that Litvinenko’s assassination marked the beginning of the deterioration of Moscow’s relations with the west and a decade of geo-political disruptions – from the war in Ukraine, a civilian plane shot down, at least 7,000 dead, two million people displaced and a Russian president’s defiant rejection of a law-based international order. With Russia’s covert war in Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea, Europe and the US face a new Cold War, but with fewer certainties.

This is a shocking real-life revenge tragedy with corruption and subterfuge at every turn, and walk-on parts from Russian mafia, the KGB, MI6 agents, dedicated British coppers, Russian dissidents. At the heart of this all is an individual and his family torn apart by a ruthless crime.

Обложка книги Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction

 Автор: Ward Colin


What do anarchists want? It seems easier to classify them by what they don't want, namely, the organizations of the State, and to identify them with rioting and protest rather than with any coherent ideology. But with demonstrations like those against the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund being blamed on anarchists, it is clear that an explanation of what they do stand for is long overdue.

Colin Ward provides answers to these questions by considering anarchism from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, historical, and international, and by exploring key anarchist thinkers, from Kropotkin to Chomsky. He looks critically at anarchism by evaluating key ideas within it, such as its blanket opposition to incarceration, and policy of "no compromise" with the apparatus of political decision-making. Can anarchy ever function effectively as a political force? Is it more "organized" and "reasonable" than is currently perceived? Whatever the politics of the reader, Ward's argument ensures that anarchism will be much better understood after experiencing this book.

Обложка книги Agile Software Development Agile Software Development

 Автор: Cockburn Alistair


The agile model of software development has taken the world by storm. Now, in Agile Software Development, Second Edition, one of agile’s leading pioneers updates his Jolt Productivity award-winning book to reflect all that’s been learned about agile development since its original introduction.

Alistair Cockburn begins by updating his powerful model of software development as a “cooperative game of invention and communication.” Among the new ideas he introduces: harnessing competition without damaging collaboration; learning lessons from lean manufacturing; and balancing strategies for communication. Cockburn also explains how the cooperative game is played in business and on engineering projects, not just software development

Next, he systematically illuminates the agile model, shows how it has evolved, and answers the questions developers and project managers ask most often, including

· Where does agile development fit in our organization?

· How do we blend agile ideas with other ideas?

· How do we extend agile ideas more broadly?

Cockburn takes on crucial misconceptions that cause agile projects to fail. For example, you’ll learn why encoding project management strategies into fixed processes can lead to ineffective strategy decisions and costly mistakes. You’ll also find a thoughtful discussion of the controversial relationship between agile methods and user experience design.

Cockburn turns to the practical challenges of constructing agile methodologies for your own teams. You’ll learn how to tune and continuously reinvent your methodologies, and how to manage incomplete communication. This edition contains important new contributions on these and other topics:

· Agile and CMMI

· Introducing agile from the top down

· Revisiting “custom contracts”

· Creating change with “stickers”

In addition, Cockburn updates his discussion of the Crystal methodologies, which utilize his “cooperative game” as their central metaphor.

If you’re new to agile development, this book will help you succeed the first time out. If you’ve used agile methods before, Cockburn’s techniques will make you even more effective.

Обложка книги Agile-менеджмент. Лидерство и управление командами Agile-менеджмент. Лидерство и управление командами

 Автор: Аппело Юрген


Во многих организациях на пути внедрения Agile оказывается традиционный менеджмент. Командам тяжело применять гибкие методологии, если их лидеров заклинило на устаревших управленческих подходах.

Цель этой книги – дать понять, как работают Agile-команды. В ней нет кейсов, простых решений и банальных советов. Чего в ней в избытке, так это интересных идей, результатов экспериментов и поводов для размышления. В ней есть то, что действительно необходимо современным менеджерам: понимание общих подходов, с помощью которых вы сможете создать собственные рецепты, соответствующие именно вашим потребностям.

Обложка книги Au commencement était le verbe… Ensuite vint l'orthographe Au commencement était le verbe… Ensuite vint l'orthographe

 Автор: Fripiat Bernard


L'orthographe, ses règles obscures et ses exceptions vous font souffrir ?

Rassurez-vous, c'est voulu !

Comment pourrait-il en être autrement dans un pays à l'histoire si tumultueuse ? Comme la France, notre orthographe a traversé les siècles en empruntant des voies détournées, sans craindre détours et autres pirouettes.

Il fallait un Belge comme Bernard Fripiat pour raconter cette histoire avec un humour et une irrévérence qui déculpabiliseront les pires cancres. En une centaine de pourquoi, il explique l'origine de chaque difficulté et raconte la folle épopée d'une orthographe que le monde entier nous envie…

Biographie de l'auteur

Historien passionné par la langue française, Bernard Fripiat anime depuis vingt ans des stages d orthographe en entreprise. Auteur dramatique, il est également comédien et chroniqueur radio. En 2013 il a publié L'Orthographe : 99 trucs pour en rire et la retenir (éd. Gunten).

Обложки нет A short history of nearly everything

 Автор: Bryson Bill

 Серия:


A Short History of Nearly Everything (ISBN 0-7679-0817-1) is a general science book by Bill Bryson, which explains some areas of science in ordinary language. It was the bestselling popular science book of 2005 in the UK, selling over 300,000 copies.[1] A Short History deviates from Bryson's popular travel book genre, instead describing general sciences such as chemistry, paleontology, astronomy, and particle physics. In it, he explores time from the Big Bang to the discovery of quantum mechanics, via evolution and geology. Bryson tells the story of science through the stories of the people who made the discoveries, such as Edwin Hubble, Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein. Bill Bryson wrote this book because he was dissatisfied with his scientific knowledge - that was, not much at all. He writes that science was a distant, unexplained subject at school. Textbooks and teachers alike did not ignite the passion for knowledge in him, mainly because they never delved in the whys, hows, and whens.

Обложка книги Acacia mangium  Willd. - A Fast Growing Tree for Tropical Plantation Acacia mangium Willd. - A Fast Growing Tree for Tropical Plantation

 Автор: Hegde Maheshwar, Palanisamy K, Yi Jae-Seon


Acacia mangium  is an evergreen fast-growing tropical tree, which can grow up to 30 m tall and 50 cm thick, under favorable conditions. It is a low-elevation species associated with rain forest margins and disturbed, well-drained acid soils. It is native to Papua, Western Irian Jaya and the Maluku islands in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and north-eastern Queensland in Australia. Due to its rapid growth and tolerance of very poor soils,  A. mangium  was introduced into some Asian, African and western hemisphere countries where it is used as a plantation tree.  A. mangium  has good quality wood traits, such as a comparatively low proportion of parenchymatous cells and vessels, white and hard wood, and high calorific value. Therefore, it is useful for a variety of purposes, such as furniture, cabinets, turnery, floors, particleboard, plywood, veneer, fence posts, firewood, and charcoal. It is also being used in pulp and paper making because it has good pulp traits, with high yields of pulp, quality of kraft, and produces paper with good optical, physical and surface properties. Because there are significant provenance differences in growth rate, stem straightness, heartwood formation and frequency of multiple leaders, the productivity and quality also varies depending upon environmental conditions, so genetic improvement programmes have been undertaken in countries like Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand. The programme includes provenance identifications and testing, plus tree selection and clonal multiplication, establishment of seed orchards and hybridization. The phenology, reproductive biology, fruit characteristics, silvicultural practices for cultivation, pest and diseases problems, production of improved planting stock, harvesting, wood properties and utilization have been discussed in this paper.

Обложка книги Abstract of the book. The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload Abstract of the book. The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload

 Автор: Levitin Daniel


This is the abstract of Daniel Levitin's book

Taken from https://www.blinkist.com/en/reader/the-organized-mind-en/

Who should read it?

Anyone who wants to be more organized

Anyone who is interested in the way our brain processes data

Anyone struggling with the information overload of modern life

Who's the author?

Daniel Levitin is a cognitive psychologist and neuroscientist. He is particularly well known for his work in music theory. He has authored several best-selling books, including This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession, and The World in Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Created Human Nature.

New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin shifts his keen insights from your brain on music to your brain in a sea of details.

The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we’re expected to make more—and faster—decisions about our lives than ever before. No wonder, then, that the average American reports frequently losing car keys or reading glasses, missing appointments, and feeling worn out by the effort required just to keep up.

But somehow some people become quite accomplished at managing information flow. In The Organized Mind, Daniel J. Levitin, PhD, uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how those people excel—and how readers can use their methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and time.

With lively, entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to executive office workflow, Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to the challenges of our daily lives. This Is Your Brain on Music showed how to better play and appreciate music through an understanding of how the brain works. The Organized Mind shows how to navigate the churning flood of information in the twenty-first century with the same neuroscientific perspective.

Обложка книги After the Sheikhs : The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies After the Sheikhs : The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies

 Автор: Davidson Christopher Michael


The Gulf monarchies (Saudi Arabia and its five smaller neighbours: the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain) have long been governed by highly autocratic and seemingly anachronistic regimes. Yet despite bloody conflicts on their doorsteps, fast-growing populations, and powerful modernising and globalising forces impacting on their largely conservative societies, they have demonstrated remarkable resilience. Obituaries for these traditional monarchies have frequently been penned, but even now these absolutist, almost medieval, entities still appear to pose the same conundrum as before: in the wake of the 2011 Arab Spring and the fall of incumbent presidents in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, the apparently steadfast Gulf monarchies have, at first glance, re-affirmed their status as the Middle East s only real bastions of stability. In this book, however, noted Gulf expert Christopher Davidson contends that the collapse of these kings, emirs, and sultans is going to happen, and was always going to. While the revolutionary movements in North Africa, Syria, and Yemen will undeniably serve as important, if indirect, catalysts for the coming upheaval, many of the same socio-economic pressures that were building up in the Arab republics are now also very much present in the Gulf monarchies. It is now no longer a matter of if but when the West s steadfast allies fall. This is a bold claim to make but Davidson, who accurately forecast the economic turmoil that afflicted Dubai in 2009, has an enviable record in diagnosing social and political changes afoot in the region.
