Dickens Charles The Old Curiosity Shop

366 руб.
With an Introduction and Notes by Peter Preston, University of Nottingham. Illustrations by Hablot K. Browne (Phis) and George Cattermole. The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41), with its combination of the sentimental, the grotesque and the socially concerned, and its story of pursuit and courage, which sets the downtrodden and the plucky against the malevolent and the villainous, was an immediate popular success. Little Nell quickly became one of Dickens' most celebrated characters, who so captured the imagination of his readers that while the novel was being serialised, many of them wrote to him about her fate. Dickens was conscious of the 'many friends' the novel had won for him, and 'the many hearts it turned to me when they were full of private sorrow', and it remains one of the most familiar and well-loved of his works.

Sergey Sudoplatov Classification of countable models of complete theories. Рart 1

370 руб.
The book is the first part of the monograph “Classification of countable models of complete theories” consisting of two parts. In the monograph, a classification of countable models of complete theories with respect to two basic characteristics (Rudin–Keisler preorders and distribution functions for numbers of limit models) is presented and applied to the most important classes of countable theories such as the class of Ehrenfeucht theories (i. e., complete first-order theories with finitely many but more than one pairwise non-isomorphic countable models), the class of small theories (i. e., complete first-order theories with countably many types), and the class of countable first-order theories with continuum many types. For realizations of basic characteristics of countable complete theories, syntactic generic constructions, generalizing the Jonsson–Fraïssé construction and the Hrushovski construction, are presented. Using these constructions a solution of the Goncharov–Millar problem (on the existence of Ehrenfeucht theories with countable models which are not almost homogeneous) is described. Modifying the Hrushovski–Herwig generic construction, a solution of the Lachlan problem on the existence of stable Ehrenfeucht theories is shown. In the first part, a characterization of Ehrenfeuchtness, properties of Ehrenfeucht theories, generic constructions, and algebras for distributions of binary semi-isolating formulas of a complete theory are considered. The book is intended for specialists interested in Mathematical Logic.

For two decades, "Liki Rossii", an information and publishing company, has published many books and photographic albums on topics ranging from the history of Russia to Saint Petersburg and the Romanov Dynasty. Some of our books were devoted to a particular branch of the Imperial Family, the "Vladimirovichi" - Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich and his descendants. Among these works were: the memoires of Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich and his spouse Grand Duchess Leonida Georgievna, "Russia is in our hearts", published in 1995. The memoires of Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich, "My life in Russia's Service," were issued one year later. The authors, Galina Korneva and Tatiana Cheboksarova, have been working on this topic for many years. Back in 2001, "Liki Rossii" published an important and one-of-akind guidebook, "Saint-Petersburg Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir," authored by Korneva and Cheboksarova. It was to become the first of many such collaborations. The authors take part in conferences both in Russia and abroad; they deliver lectures and write articles on a regular basis. In fact, they have authored nearly 30 articles devoted to different aspects of Grand Duke Vladimir activity, as well as the life of members of his family. One the latest books written by G. Korneva and T. Cheboksarova is titled "Russia and Europe - Dynastic Ties." It contains many pages dedicated to detailed descriptions of this branch of Romanov family. "Liki Rossii" published it in 2010 in Russian and in 2012 in English. Expanded with many archival photographs, kindly provided by publisher and collector Arturo E. Beеche, it was printed in USA by Eurohistory.com in 2013 The authors used considerable amounts of archival documents that they collected during many years working in various archives, both in Russia and abroad. The book "Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna" includes also more than 300 photographs from archives and private collections. In a further collaboration with Eurohistory.com, nearly 70 photographs were kindly given to the authors by Arturo E. Beеche. In fact, as was the case with "Russia and Europe," Eurohistory.com is publishing "Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna" for the American, European and world markets. Proficiency in several foreign languages provided G. Korneva and T. Cheboksarova the chance to read and analyze a period covering the end of 19th - beginning of 20th century. Many of these works were printed in Russia, England, Germany, while also serving as source for many previously unseen photographs. Without a doubt, the authors' detailed knowledge of the topic only further enriches this very unique book. See also the previous published book of the authors "Empress Maria Fedorovna's Favorite Residences in Russia and Denmark".

Travelling the circumference of the truly gigantic Pacific, Simon Winchester tells the story of the world’s largest body of water, and – in matters economic, political and military – the ocean of the future.The Pacific is a world of tsunamis and Magellan, of the Bounty mutiny and the Boeing Company. It is the stuff of the towering Captain Cook and his wide-ranging network of exploring voyages, Robert Louis Stevenson and Admiral Halsey. It is the place of Paul Gauguin and the explosion of the largest-ever American atomic bomb, on Bikini atoll, in 1951. It has an astonishing recent past, an uncertain present and a hugely important future.The ocean and its peoples are the new lifeblood, fizz and thrill of America – which draws so many of its minds and so much of its manners from the sea – while the inexorable rise of the ancient center of the world, China, is a fixating fascination. The presence of rogue states – North Korea most notoriously today – suggest that the focus of the responsible world is shifting away from the conventional post-war obsessions with Europe and the Middle East, and towards a new set of urgencies. Navigating the newly evolving patterns of commerce and trade, the world’s most violent weather and the fascinating histories, problems and potentials of the many Pacific states, Simon Winchester’s thrilling journey is a grand depiction of the future ocean.

99 руб.
"The Masque of the Red Death", originally published as «The Mask of the Red Death: A Fantasy», is an 1842 short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. The story follows Prince Prospero's attempts to avoid a dangerous plague, known as the Red Death, by hiding in his abbey. He, along with many other wealthy nobles, hosts a masquerade ballwithin seven rooms of the abbey, each decorated with a different color. In the midst of their revelry, a mysterious figure disguised as a Red Death victim enters and makes his way through each of the rooms. Prospero dies after confronting this stranger, whose «costume» proves to contain nothing tangible inside it; the guests also die in turn. Poe's story follows many traditions of Gothic fiction and is often analyzed as an allegory about the inevitability of death, though some critics advise against an allegorical reading. Many different interpretations have been presented, as well as attempts to identify the true nature of the titular disease. The story was first published in May 1842 in Graham's Magazineand has since been adapted in many different forms, including a 1964 film starring Vincent Price.

Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickens's maturity. When Arthur Clennam returns to England after many years abroad, he takes a kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother's seamstress, and in the affairs of Amy's father, William Dorrit, a man of shabby grandeur, long imprisoned for debt in Marshalsea prison. As Arthur soon discovers, the dark shadow of the prison stretches far beyond its walls to affect the lives of many, from the kindly Mr Panks, the reluctant rent-collector of Bleeding Heart Yard, and the tipsily garrulous Flora Finching, to Merdle, an unscrupulous financier, and the bureaucratic Barnacles in the Circumlocution Office. .

Colour and the Optical Properties of Materials carefully introduces the science behind the subject, along with many modern and cutting-edge applications, chosen to appeal to today's students. For science students, it provides a broad introduction to the subject and the many applications of colour. To more applied students, such as engineering and arts students, it provides the essential scientific background to colour and the many applications. New to this Edition: The chapter framework of the first edition will be retained, with each chapter being substantially rewritten and some material would be relocated. Some chapters will be rewritten in a clearer fashion, e.g. There have been no significant advances in the understanding of rainbows recently, but the text could be clarified and improved. Colour has been an important attribute of many nano-particle containing systems, such as quantum dots. This aspect will be included, e.g. the colour of gold ruby glass, described in Chapter 5 as part of scattering phenomena now is better treated in terms of gold nanoparticles and surface plasmons. This would probably be transferred to Chapter 10 and considered in tandem with the colour of metals such as copper, silver and gold. A similar state of affairs applies to silver nanoparticles and polychromic glass. Some chapters will include extensive new material, e.g. Chapter 8, colours due to molecular processes [organic LEDs etc], and Chapter 12, Displays, [touch screen technologies]. For all chapters it would be intended to take into account the current scientific literature up to the time of submission – say up to the end of 2009. The end of chapter Further Reading sections would reflect this up-to-date overview. The end of chapter problems will be strengthened and expanded.

Antonov B. Russian tsars: Русские цари: Альбом на английском языке ( футляре)

3010 руб.
Стильно оформленный подарочный альбом в оригинальном футляре с позолоченным узором и шелковым ляссе. . .Reflecting on the history of Russia, a country straddling two continents, one comes to the conclusion that it combines features of Eastern despotism and Western civilization - an explosive cocktail inevitably influencing the character of the Russian autocracy. .We trace our tale of Russian absolutism from its original sources to its tragic finale. The first chapter is dedicated to the birth of statehood in Russia. The second is an account of the history of the Rurikid princes - the first Russian dynasty. The third tells the story of the Time of Troubles, when the state was on the verge of complete ruin. The fourth begins with the coronation of Michael Romanov and ends with the execution of the last Russian autocrat, Nicholas II, and his family. We know the names of the leaders of popular revolts, kings and khans, but we often know very little about the personalities of the Russian tsars. These men and women were exceptional in many ways. Besides ruling one of the greatest empires that the world has ever known, many were fascinating personalities in their own right. Not all of them were ideal rulers. Like all human beings, they had their own faults, passions, feelings and habits. The only difference is that private individuals control only their own fates or those of their friends and relatives. .The personal whims of a sovereign, however, can have enormous consequences for the history of the entire nation and the fates of his or her subjects and their descendants. This helps to explain our fascination with the people who, for many centuries, ruled over the Russian lands.

Willis Domingo Against Epistemology. A Metacritique

5245.15 руб.
This classic book by Theodor W. Adorno anticipates many of the themes that have since become common in contemporary philosophy: the critique of foundationalism, the illusions of idealism and the end of epistemology. It also foreshadows many of the key ideas that were developed by Adorno in his most important philosophical works, including Negative Dialectics. Against Epistemology is based on a manuscript Adorno originally wrote in Oxford in 1934-37 during his first years in exile and subsequently reworked in Frankfurt in 1955-56. The text was written as a critique of Husserl’s phenomenology, but the critique of phenomenology is used as the occasion for a much broader critique of epistemology. Adorno described this as a ‘metacritique’ which blends together the analysis of Husserl’s phenomenology as the most advanced instance of the decay of bourgeois idealism with an immanent critique of the tensions and contradictions internal to Husserl’s thought. The result is a powerful text which remains one of the most devastating critiques of Husserl’s work ever written and which heralded many of the ideas that have become commonplace in contemporary philosophy.

For two decades, "Liki Rossii", an information and publishing company, has published many books and photographic albums on topics ranging from the history of Russia to Saint Petersburg and the Romanov Dynasty. Some of our books were devoted to a particular branch of the Imperial Family, the "Vladimirovichi" - Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich and his descendants. Among these works were: the memoires of Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich and his spouse Grand Duchess Leonida Georgievna, "Russia is in our hearts", published in 1995. The memoires of Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich, "My life in Russia's Service," were issued one year later. The authors, Galina Korneva and Tatiana Cheboksarova, have been working on this topic for many years. Back in 2001, "Liki Rossii" published an important and one-of-akind guidebook, "Saint-Petersburg Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir," authored by Korneva and Cheboksarova. It was to become the first of many such collaborations. The authors take part in conferences both in Russia and abroad; they deliver lectures and write articles on a regular basis. In fact, they have authored nearly 30 articles devoted to different aspects of Grand Duke Vladimir activity, as well as the life of members of his family. One the latest books written by G. Korneva and T. Cheboksarova is titled "Russia and Europe - Dynastic Ties." It contains many pages dedicated to detailed descriptions of this branch of Romanov family. "Liki Rossii" published it in 2010 in Russian and in 2012 in English. Expanded with many archival photographs, kindly provided by publisher and collector Arturo E. Beеche, it was printed in USA by Eurohistory.com in 2013 The authors used considerable amounts of archival documents that they collected during many years working in various archives, both in Russia and abroad. The book "Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna" includes also more than 300 photographs from archives and private collections. In a further collaboration with Eurohistory.com, nearly 70 photographs were kindly given to the authors by Arturo E. Beеche. In fact, as was the case with "Russia and Europe," Eurohistory.com is publishing "Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna" for the American, European and world markets. Proficiency in several foreign languages provided G. Korneva and T. Cheboksarova the chance to read and analyze a period covering the end of 19th - beginning of 20th century. Many of these works were printed in Russia, England, Germany, while also serving as source for many previously unseen photographs. Without a doubt, the authors' detailed knowledge of the topic only further enriches this very unique book. See also the previous published book of the authors "Empress Maria Fedorovna's Favorite Residences in Russia and Denmark".
