Harold James Jenks practically grew up behind bars spending all of his teenage years in jails, reformatories and prisons. Jenks was not free until he was 24 years old-learned how to fight as a matter of survival. On the "outside" Jenks used knowledge acquired in prison for jobs managing unruly customers in nightclubs, etc.-getting upwards of $500 a day for occasional "trouble-shooting." In addition to knowledge acquired in prison Jenks dealt with knife... more...

Today's microchips have nearly reached their performance limits. Various heat removal, power delivery, chip reliability, and input/output (I/O) signaling problems stand in the way of next-generation 3D gigascale, system-on-a-chip technology, and this cutting-edge guide describes the latest breakthroughs in microfluidics, high-density compliant electrical interconnects, and nanophotonics that are converging to solve them. Engineers get full details on... more...

A concise and engaging overview of endocrine disruption phenomena that brings complex concepts within the reach of non-specialists For most of the last decade, the science of endocrine disruption has evolved with more definitive evidence of its damaging potential to health and environment. This book lists the major environmental chemicals of concern and their mechanism of endocrine disruption including remedial measures for them.... more...

Collating otherwise hard-to-get and recently acquired knowledge in one work, this is a comprehensive reference on the synthesis, properties, characterization, and applications of this eco-friendly class of plastics. A group of internationally renowned researchers offer their first-hand experience and knowledge, dealing exclusively with those biodegradable polyesters that have become increasingly important over the past two decades due to environmental... more...

This book provides relevant findings on nanoparticles’ toxicity, their uptake, translocation and mechanisms of interaction with plants at cellular and sub-cellular level. The small size and large specific surface area of nanoparticles endow them with high chemical reactivity and intrinsic toxicity. Such unique physicochemical properties draw global attention of scientists to study potential risks and adverse... more...


Soils are composed of grains but they are generally treated as continua in the classical framework of geomechanics. Their macroscopic response under loading, such as their non-linearity, yielding and anisotropy, is controlled by their micro-structure, the characteristics of the grains and the disposition of contacts between them. There have been rapid advances in technology both to investigate the microscopic properties of soils, and to simulate their... more...

Nutrition for Foodservice and Culinary Professionals is the must-have reference for the most thorough, up-to-date information on nutrition and diet. New and expanded material in this Sixth Edition addresses important topics such as the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, MyPyramid, balanced menu options and recipe ideas for morning and afternoon breaks, basic principles of food presentation, meeting special dietary needs, weight management, and much... more...

Flown by Commonwealth air forces as well as the RAF, the Sunderland was a heavily-armed maritime patrol seaplane that played a key role in defeating the U-Boats during World War II. This illustrated text details design, development and history.

This is the story of the world's first operational swing-wing bomber. The General Dynamics F111 was a far-sighted design, packed with radars and navigational aids to help pinpoint targets in bad weather and at night. Proved over Vietnam, used with great effect against Libya and excelling in the Gulf War, it will remain in service with the Royal Australian Air Force well into the next century. The authors interviewed many former F111 crews and gathered... more...

This book is intended for individuals who are interested in modelling heat transfer problems both in academic and non-academic settings. The main focus is on the COMSOL Multiphysics Heat Transfer module; however, the fundamentals may be applied to other commercial packages such as MATLAB, ANSYS, and AbaqusTM. The content can be utilized in variety of disciplines including aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil... more...
