Harold Brown served as U.S. secretary of defense when the Soviet Union posed an existential threat with superior conventional force capability and a daunting nuclear weapons arsenal. No one could have been better suited to deter the Soviets during that most dangerous period in the Cold War.A physicist, Brown had previously led Livermore Laboratory and its development of the Polaris missile warhead. By age 33 he was director of Defense Research and Engineering, and he later served as secretary of the U.S. Air Force early in the Vietnam War.In the Carter administration, Brown reinvigorated the NAT O alliance, promoted AWACs, increased U.S. conventional force capabilities, and developed a new generation of nuclear weapons and delivery systems. As a senior negotiator of SALT II, he also helped set their limits.Brown was the first American secretary of defense to visit China; as principal interlocutor he forged military-to-military relations. During his tenure, the Soviets invaded Afghanistan; the Iranian revolution resulted in the capture of American hostages; President Carter achieved the Camp David Peace Accords; and the Panama Canal Treaties-that still protect U.S. interests-were rewritten. Browns role in each was integral.Star Spangled Security provides lessons from the past to inform the future: from Afghanistan to Irans pursuit of nuclear weapons; from international alliances and interests the U.S. needs to consider in a changing world to specific ideas for jumpstarting technological innovation that could boost American security and our economy today. Based on his twelve years of top-tier government service and nearly fifty more as a president of Caltech, a board member of a dozen corporations, the chair of recent, comprehensive studies of Chinese military capability, U.S. Intelligence, and technological innovation, and as the past chair and a current member of the Defense Policy Board that advises sitting secretaries of defense, Brown offers wise counsel to any American voter as well as to aspiring leaders.
An updated revisting of the themes of Robin Marris classic The Economic Theory of Managerial Capitalism (1964). This was widely recognised as pathbreaking as it was the first attempt by a professional economist to make a formal theory of the behaviour and growth of a large-scale managerial corporation based on a realistic assessment of the sociological and institutional environment. The model determined the long-run growth rates of individual firms on the basis of the financial and market environment on the one hand and the needs, interest and aspirations of both managers and shareholders on the other. Managers in particular were shown to trade desire for growth against fear of takeover. These then novel important features of modern capitalism - mergers, takeovers and executive bonuses and the relationship between the growth of firms and the growth of the economy - have become increasingly topical. The book contains the original introduction along with reworked and updated coverage of the theoretical model, along with completely new chapters both of micro-theory and Marris substantive response to the debate which the original book created.
The essays in this volume investigate the challenges of transitioning to lower levels of inflation and conducting monetary policy in low-inflation economies. The essays make both theoretical and empirical contributions.
Cet ouvrage sonde deux grands types de transfert interlinguistique: la traduction professionnelle, enseignee dans les ecoles et instituts de formation de traducteurs, et la traduction didactique, pratiquee en enseignement des langues. Les auteurs des textes reunis ici, tous des pedagogues dexperience, tentent de repondre a quelques-unes des questions fondamentales du domaine: En quoi lenseignement de la traduction professionnelle se distingue-t-il des exercices de traduction didactique ? Comment enseigner a bien comprendre les textes avant de les traduire ? Comment convient-il devaluer les traductions ? La puissance dInternet peut-elle etre mise au service de lenseignement de la traduction ? Quel metalangage utilise-t-on dans les cours de traduction ? Pourquoi est-il important dinculquer aux etudiants des habitudes denominatives ? Lintrospection a haute voix (think-aloud protocols) peut-elle contribuer a ameliorer la pedagogie de la traduction ? Autant de questions qui trouvent dans ce collectif des elements de reponse propres a faire progresser la pedagogie de la traduction a stimuler la recherche.
Con Mucho ruido y pocas nueces, Shakespeare hace una divertida incursion en la festiva sociedad de Messina, donde la ceremoniosidad exarcebada y el amaneramiento cortesano daran paso a la expresion abierta y sincera del amor. El caracter metateatral de esta comunidad queda en evidencia cuando asistimos a la preparacion escenografica, por parte de los personajes, de cada uno de los eventos que tendran lugar a continuacion. Los multiples equivocos producidos ante la erronea interpretacion de lo visto y lo oido solo se solventaran cuando nuestros protagonistas se despojen de sus mascaras linguisticas, aunque la estructura circular de la obra deja abierta la posibilidad de que se vuelva a tropezar con las perpetuas convenciones sociales. Esta edicion bilingue resultara util tanto para los especialistas de literatura inglesa como para los de traduccion gracias a su enfoque interdisciplinar. Ademas de la introduccion critica, el texto traducido esta complementado con notas a pie de pagina en las que se explica el proceso traductologico al mismo tiempo que se aporta informacion sobre el contexto literario y social de la epoca.
Reflecting the latest advances in investigative techniques and treatment the authors have fully revised and updated this self-assessment volume.

The book will appeal to a wide range of professionals in practice and training from young hospital doctors preparing for higher qualifications in cardiology and internal medicine, to established physicians who are stimulated by a problem-oriented Review their subject.
While Lonergans work has been developed and applied to a range of cultures and ideas, few scholars have addressed the question of whether it is subject to feminist critique. And few feminists have employed the transcendental method of Lonergan to aid the feminist scholarly agenda.This collection of ten essays initiates dialogue among scholars interested in Lonergan and concerned with feminism, and engages several fields of enquiry: philosophy, natural science, human science, ethics, and theology. Frederick E. Crowe deals with the challenges involved when one applies the work of a generalist, such as Lonergan, to a particular set of concerns, such as those of feminists. Three articles by philosophers - Paulette Kidder, Michael Vertin, and Elizabeth Morelli - treat questions of epistemology and gender. Cynthia Crysdale discusses womens ways of knowing from a social scientific perspective. Articles by Tad Dunne and Denise Carmody deal with the question of authenticity and the criteria by which feminist truths are delineated. Michael Shute examines Lonergans work on emergent probability in light of eco-feminist critiques of the great chain of being. Mary Frohlich addresses the question of the theological significance of sexuality. Charles Hefling examines Lonergans Christology in reference to the feminist question of whether a male saviour can save women. Lonergan invites his readers to engage in an experiment in cognitive self-appropriation - Lonergan and Feminism encourages this experiment.
When explaining cognition one must explain how representations in the mind, or symbols, become meaningful by connecting to the external world. This process of connecting symbols with sensorimotor experiences is known as symbol grounding. The classical view of symbol grounding is that it is an individual process: a person or machine interacts with the environment and associates symbols with external experiences.This volume contains views from different disciplines - ranging from psychology to robotics - on how this view can be extended by first extending symbol grounding to encompass semiotics and by showing how the classical view exaggerates the importance of written language: grounding does not necessarily involve written notations, but rather language is an external cognitive resource that allows us to acquire categories and concepts. Secondly, as symbol grounding relies on language to acquire and coordinate the process and language is a dynamical process rooted in both culture and biology, symbol grounding by extension is also sensitive to culture, emotion and embodiment.The contributions to this volume were previously published in Interaction Studies 8:1 (2007).
