**Hermann von Helmholtz and the foundations of 19-century science**

Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) used to be a polymath of extraordinary highbrow diversity and effort. well known for his co-discovery of the second one legislation of thermodynamics and his invention of the ophthalmoscope, Helmholtz additionally made many different contributions to body structure, actual idea, philosophy of technological know-how and arithmetic, and aesthetic inspiration.

**A word for nature: four pioneering environmental advocates, 1845-1913**

The careers and concepts of 4 figures of enormous value within the background of yank conservation—George Perkins Marsh, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and John Wesley Powell—are explored in A notice for Nature. Robert Dorman deals vigorous photographs of every of those early environmental advocates, who witnessed firsthand the impression of financial enlargement and business revolution on fragile landscapes from the forests of latest England to the mountains of the West.

**Mathematicians Fleeing from Nazi Germany: Individual Fates and Global Impact**

The emigration of mathematicians from Europe throughout the Nazi period signaled an irrevocable and demanding historic shift for the foreign arithmetic global. Mathematicians Fleeing from Nazi Germany is the 1st completely documented account of this exodus. during this significantly extended translation of the 1998 German version, Reinhard Siegmund-Schultze describes the flight of greater than one hundred forty mathematicians, their purposes for leaving, the political and financial matters concerned, the reception of those emigrants through a variety of international locations, and the emigrants' carrying on with contributions to arithmetic.

Here's a lifeline for the person who has no longer been expert as a Webmaster, yet who— even if through selection or lower than duress—has develop into one still. whereas so much Webmastering books concentrate on programming and comparable technical matters, The unintentional Webmaster is helping readers take care of the whole diversity of demanding situations they face at the task.
