Demystifying Explosives covers topics ranging from explosives, deflagration, detonation, and pyrotechnics to safety and security aspects of HEMS, looking at their aspects, particularly their inter-relatedness with respect to properties and performance. The book explains concepts related to the molecular structure of HEMs, their properties, performance parameters, detonation and shock waves including explosives and propellants. The theory-based title also deals with important (safety and security) and interesting (constructive applications) aspects connected with HEMs and is of fundamental use to students in their introduction to these materials and applications. Explains the concept of high energy materials in simple language and down-to-earth examples Worked examples and problems are given wherever required Demystifies the concept of explosives Limited use of big and complex equations Questions and Suggested Reading are given at the end of each chapter

Demystifying the Peace Dividend Book Review:

Die weltweiten Militarausgaben sind seit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges vor 10 Jahren um mehr als ein Drittel gesunken. Enorme finanzielle Mittel fur zivile Verwendungen wurden frei und nahrten so die Hoffnung auf eine direkte Friedensdividende fur nachhaltige und soziale Entwicklung.Der Sammelband beleuchtet Mythen und Realitaten um diese Friedensdividende. Wer hat vom Ruckgang der Verteidigungsausgaben profitiert? Wie hoch sind die Einsparungen, wie wurden sie in unterschiedlichen Landern verwendet oder verschwanden sie durch die Folgen der Abrustung?In acht Landerstudien (USA, Sudafrika, Deutschland, Rualand, Guatemala, Nigeria, China und Pakistan) analysieren die Autoren dieses Spannungsfeld von direkten Verbindungen zwischen niedrigeren Militarausgaben und positiven sozio-okonomischen Entwicklungen einerseits und der Komplexitat politischer und okonomischer Prozesse in einem langeren Zeitrahmen andererseits. Deutlich wird dabei vor allem auch die Relevanz landerspezifischer Besonderheiten.Der Band wird herausgegeben vom Internationalen Konversionszentrum Bonn (BICC), das sich vor allem durch sein seit 1999 im Nomos Verlag erscheinendes Jahrbuch conversion survey einen Namen gemacht hat.

Demystifying Therapy Book Review:

Originally published by Constable in 1994, PCCS Books is delighted to be re-issuing this still popular and very well-received book. During the last decade, as public awareness of the role of therapy has increased, so too has criticism of specific approaches to therapeutic practice. In this book, Dr Spinelli examines the assumptions of his profession. He argues that in seeking to cure, heal, educate, free and change the client, in seeking to promote 'mental health', psychotherapists and counsellors not only end up abusing their clients and themselves but they also succeed in setting themselves impossible tasks and goals which actually impede the therapeutic process. Through his critique, Spinelli demystifies therapists' language and theories. He argues that key areas of the client-therapist relationship have been neglected and, using case material from his own practice, explores in full the way in which therapists should engage with and listen to their clients in order to be of help. naivete of many therapists - their unnecessary and artificial reliance on 'techniques' and their abuse of the power bestowed on them in the therapeutic relationship.

Demystifying Exotic Products Book Review:

In recent times, derivatives have been inaccurately labelled the financial weapons of mass destruction responsible for the worst financial crisis in recent history. Inherently complex and perilous for the ill-informed investment professional they can however also be gainfully harnessed. This book is a practical guide to the complexities of exotic products written in simple terms based on the premise that derivatives are not homogenous, and not necessarily dangerous. By exploring common themes behind the construction of various structured products in interest rates, equities and foreign exchange, and investigating the economic environment that promoted the explosive growth of these products, this book will help readers make sense of their relevance in this period of economic uncertainty. Subsequently, by explaining exotic products with simple mathematics, it will aid readers in understanding their potential use in certain investment strategies whilst having a firm control over risk. Exotic products need not be inaccessible. By understanding the products available investors can make informed decisions ensuring features are consistent with their investment objectives and risk preferences. Author Chia Chiang Tan takes readers through the risks and rewards of each product, illustrating when products can damage investment strategies and how to avoid them, leading to suitable, profitable investments. Ultimately, this book will provide practitioners with an understanding of derivatives, enabling them to determine for themselves which products will fit their investment strategy, and how to use them based on the economic environment and inherent risks.

Demystifying the Brain Book Review:

This book presents an emerging new vision of the brain, which is essentially expressed in computational terms, for non-experts. As such, it presents the fundamental concepts of neuroscience in simple language, without overwhelming non-biologists with excessive biological jargon. In addition, the book presents a novel computational perspective on the brain for biologists, without resorting to complex mathematical equations. It addresses a comprehensive range of topics, starting with the history of neuroscience, the function of the individual neuron, the various kinds of neural network models that can explain diverse neural phenomena, sensory-motor function, language, emotions, and concluding with the latest theories on consciousness. The book offers readers a panoramic introduction to the “new brain” and a valuable resource for interdisciplinary researchers looking to gatecrash the world of neuroscience.
