Energetic Materials
by Ulrich Teipel

Incorporation of particular components with specialized properties allows one to tailor the end product’s properties. For instance, the sensitivity, burning behavior, thermal or mechanical properties or stability of energetic materials can be affected and even controllably varied through incorporation of such ingredients. This book examines particle technologies as applied to energetic materials such as propellants and explosives, thus filling a void in the literature on this subject.

Following an introduction covering general features of energetic materials, the first section of this book describes methods of manufacturing particulate energetic materials, including size reduction, crystallization, atomization, particle formation using supercritical fluids and microencapsulation, agglomeration phenomena, special considerations in mixing explosive particles and the production of nanoparticles. The second section discusses the characterization of particulate materials. Techniques and methods such as particle size analysis, morphology elucidation and the determination of chemical and thermal properties are presented. The wettability of powders and rheological behavior of suspensions and solids are also considered. Furthermore, methods of determining the performance of particular energetic materials are described.

Each chapter deals with fundamentals and application possibilities of the various methods presented, with particular emphasis on issues applicable to particulate energetic materials. The book is thus equally relevant for chemists, physicists, material scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers and anyone interested or engaged in particle processing and characterization technologies.


40 by 40
by D. Duane Engler

40 by 40 is inspired by creativity, brevity and imagination that allows you to fill in the blanks. The 40 stories in this collection encompass scenes, thoughts and descriptions that range from grief filled to exciting, random to hopeless and by design are no more than 40 words long. I was in awe of Ernest Hemingway’s six-word story— “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn” Nonetheless….with emphasis on … ‘the less’ a story, let’s begin.

Imagining Human Rights in Twenty-First Century Theater
by Brenda Werth, Florian Nikolas Becker, Paola Hernández

There is extraordinary diversity, depth, and complexity in the encounter between theatre, performance, and human rights. Through an examination of a rich repertoire of plays and performance practices from and about countries across six continents, the contributors to this volume seek to open the way toward understanding the character and significance of this encounter. Divided into three interrelated sections, the book focuses on a range of critical and timely human rights questions as they relate to transitional justice, memory politics, citizenship, the ‘War on Terror,’ transnational spectatorship, and the global economic order. Authors ask what artists, audiences and readers imagine, expect, and desire from the engagement of theatre and performance with these crucial questions. Ultimately, this book aims to provide nuanced, global perspectives on the emerging and transformative aesthetics, ethics and effects of this encounter at the turn of the twenty-first century.


Electrochemical Sensors, Biosensors and their Biomedical Applications
by Xueji Zhang, Huangxian Ju, Joseph Wang

This book broadly reviews the modem techniques and significant applications of chemical sensors and biosensors. Chapters are written by experts in the field – including Professor Joseph Wang, the most cited scientist in the world and renowned expert on sensor science who is also co-editor. Each chapter provides technical details beyond the level found in typical journal articles, and explores the application of chemical sensors and biosensors to a significant problem in biomedical science, also providing a prospectus for the future.

This book compiles the expert knowledge of many specialists in the construction and use of chemical sensors and biosensors including nitric oxide sensors, glucose sensors, DNA sensors, hydrogen sulfide sensors, oxygen sensors, superoxide sensors, immuno sensors, lab on chip, implatable microsensors, et al. Emphasis is laid on practical problems, ranging from chemical application to biomedical monitoring and from in vitro to in vivo, from single cell to animal to human measurement. This provides the unique opportunity of exchanging and combining the expertise of otherwise apparently unrelated disciplines of chemistry, biological engineering, and electronic engineering, medical, physiological.

  • Provides user-oriented guidelines for the proper choice and application of new chemical sensors and biosensors
  • Details new methodological advancements related to and correlated with the measurement of interested species in biomedical samples
  • Contains many case studies to illustrate the range of application and importance of the chemical sensors and biosensors

  • The Anabaptists
    by Hans-Jurgen Goertz

    The Anabaptists were at the radical, utopian edge of the Reformation, ruthlessly repressed by Catholic, Lutheran and secular authorities alike. Hans-Jurgen Goertz gives a comprehensive account of their political and religious significance, their views, and their social setting within the wider context of the Reformation. Particular attention is paid to the role and experience of women and of ‘ordinary’ Anabaptists in addition to those of the educated elite. Whilst the focus of the book is on Germany, extensive coverage is also given to Anabaptism in England, Switzerland, the Netherlands and elsewhere.
    This English edition includes a new introduction which considers the historiographical context of the book. The opening chapter has also been expanded to include a section on the emergence of Anabaptism in England.
    The Anabaptists has been fully revised since its publication in German, and takes account of the most recent historiography on the subject. It also includes a selection of primary sources together with a full listing of important Anabaptist works.

    British Masculinity in the ‘Gentleman’s Magazine’, 1731 to 1815
    by Gillian Williamson

    The Gentleman’s Magazine was the leading eighteenth-century periodical. By integrating the magazine’s history, readers and contents this study shows how ‘gentlemanliness’ was reshaped to accommodate their social and political ambitions.
