Portuguese-Japan 1550-1647 Historic Novel

Significant changes to the politics, religion, technology, commerce and the increasing accessibility of global transport spreads several members of the De Soto, De Lyma and Da Gama families (both Moslem and Catholic) far and wide: to Lisbon, Nagasaki, Madrid, Goa, Zurich, Malacca and Istanbul. This migration involves these individuals who are acting on behalf of military intelligence, in navigating many war zones, and regions of political turbulence in Japan, Java, India, Ternate, Milan, Aceh and Britain. It is the first occasion in history that European fleets can travel to Japan, in the immediate aftermath of the fall of the Caliph of Andalusia and the rise of Islam in Southeast Asia. They enjoy many business and espionage possibilities and are introduced to unfamiliar technology, as well as confronting mysteries and coming face to face with assassins and unexpected killings perpetrated by new forms of weaponry. Even later, as Harvard University professors in the 17th Century, both former Portuguese and Spanish admirals, still work with the Armada fleet, which participates in Britain's intelligence war between King Charles I and Cromwell.

Corporate Governance in Less Developed and Emerging Economies

Research on accounting in LDCs argues that a well-developed corporate governance structure, including accounting infrastructure, would promote economic prosperity. Economic development requires a modern, transparent corporate governance infrastructure based on efficient capital markets. Over the past decade corporate governance reform has become an important global policy agenda driven by events such as the 1997 Asian financial crisis, major corporate scandals (such as Enron and WorldCom) and the globalisation of capital markets. In several less developed and emerging economies corporate governance reform is also driven by the adoption of international donor led economic reforms. This in particular has made corporate governance reform an essential element of the development agenda promoted by the World Bank. The papers in the volume have provided wide ranging empirical and theoretical issues that will have policy implications and also generate future academic debates. Overall, the volume advances debate on corporate governance, accountability and transparency in less developed and emerging economies. We believe the audience will find the papers interesting and insightful in terms of theoretical development, practices and policy implications.

Knowledge Incorporation in Evolutionary Computation

Incorporation of a priori knowledge, such as expert knowledge, meta-heuristics and human preferences, as well as domain knowledge acquired during evolu tionary search, into evolutionary algorithms has received increasing interest in the recent years. It has been shown from various motivations that knowl edge incorporation into evolutionary search is able to significantly improve search efficiency. However, results on knowledge incorporation in evolution ary computation have been scattered in a wide range of research areas and a systematic handling of this important topic in evolutionary computation still lacks. This edited book is a first attempt to put together the state-of-art and re cent advances on knowledge incorporation in evolutionary computation within a unified framework. Existing methods for knowledge incorporation are di vided into the following five categories according to the functionality of the incorporated knowledge in the evolutionary algorithms. 1. Knowledge incorporation in representation, population initialization, - combination and mutation. 2. Knowledge incorporation in selection and reproduction. 3. Knowledge incorporation in fitness evaluations. 4. Knowledge incorporation through life-time learning and human-computer interactions. 5. Incorporation of human preferences in multi-objective evolutionary com putation. The intended readers of this book are graduate students, researchers and practitioners in all fields of science and engineering who are interested in evolutionary computation. The book is divided into six parts. Part I contains one introductory chapter titled "A selected introduction to evolutionary computation" by Yao, which presents a concise but insightful introduction to evolutionary computation.

Psycholinguistic Research (PLE: Psycholinguistics)

Implications and Applications

Originally published in 1979, this book represents an effort to bring together the two disciplines at the core of psycholinguistics, psychology and linguistics. It discusses a broad variety of theoretical approaches to psycholinguistics as well as covering a wide range of topics. At the time the book had four goals: to discuss many of the important contemporary issues in psycholinguistics; to explore the different views on major theoretical controversies; to provide an analysis of background literature as a framework in which to evaluate the issues and controversies; and to describe interesting high-quality research currently being done by the authors and some of their colleagues. Today it can be read and enjoyed in its historical context, with many of the chapters still relevant in psycholinguistic research today.

Student Vocabulary Companion

Most words used in the English language today were borrowed (taken) from other languages. Many English words are made up of a root (or base word) and a prefix. Some words also have a suffix. This book ofers basic understanding of word formation and extensive vocabulary, especially for students preparing for standardized tests including SAT, GRE, GMAT and End of Grade exams. At the end of each chapter you will find various worksheets to help you practice and master your vocabulary.

Global and Organizational Discourse about Information Technology

IFIP TC8 / WG8.2 Working Conference on Global and Organizational Discourse about Information Technology December 12–14, 2002, Barcelona, Spain

Over the past 20 years, the field of information systems has grown dramatically in theoretical diversity and global reach. This growth is reflected in the language that policy makers and organizational stakeholders use when they talk about their IT plans. As information technology penetrates further into organizational and global life, it becomes ever more important to articulate assumptions embedded in the discourse. This will help to clarify the complex and yet conceptually improvised or pasted-up worldview that becomes embodied in systems. The assumptions point to particular domains of discourse. The discourse sets up conventions and boundaries. It thus shapes what can or cannot legitimately be talked about, researched, addressed, or solved within the scope of IT. A number of practical and theoretical topics are discussed in detail, including: *Globalization, development, and space; *Mobilization of power; *ERP systems; *IS planning and projects; *Critical research and the study of discourse; *Public institutions; *Analytical frameworks. This book contains the selected proceedings of the Working Conference on Global and Organizational Discourse About Information Technology, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Barcelona, Spain in December 2002.
