Britain and the Making of Argentina

Gordon Bridger, UK

 

"… the author's own background as a United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America shines through in his very clear explanations… the organisation of the book should be thoroughly applauded and complemented."

Managing Complexity

 

Managing Complexity

G. Rzevski, The Open University, UK and P. Skobelev, Samara State Aerospace University, Russia

 

"...a beautiful book that tells a unique story created by two talented researchers and entrepreneurs... It is original, it is refreshing, it is brave and it will benefit all those who are able to change their minds, based on the current, well established and hardly ever challenged, belief that the future is predictable and controllable."

The Future of the City: Tall Buildings and Urban Design

 

The Future of the City: Tall Buildings and Urban Design

K. AL-KODMANY, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA and M.M. ALI, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

 

"The Future of the City is a treasure trove of skyscraper designs from around the world. Almost an encyclopaedia, the book tells you everything you would want to know about the architecture and urban design of the tall buildings sprouting up in Dubai, Beijing, Chicago, London, and elsewhere. This is the masterwork of Al-Kodmany, who has documented the state of the art of today’s skyscraper design through his meticulous drawings and striking color photographs."

Stochastic Methods in Engineering

 

Stochastic Methods in Engineering

I. Doltsinis, University of Stuttgart, Germany

 

"The book is written with the readership of the engineering community in mind. For instance, definitions are often given in an intuitive approach, not in a mathematical style. [The book] will be encouraging for those, starting from a problem of structural (material) analysis and design, to go deeper into the field of non-deterministic engineering applications. For a first entrance step to the literature on "stochasticity found in an engineering problem", the book seems well suited."
