Long ago, settlers from a faraway continent built a floating city under the command of the Engine Master. High above the mountains and sprawling pine forests of the new land, Morinuin runs on coal and steam, and bustles with automatons and flying steam cars as well as humans. It's the year 121, and the Native villagers below the city are getting in the way of the coal mines. War breaks out and everyone must take a side. It won't be long before the city will run out of energy, unless someone finds another power source... Aneka does all she can to provide for her younger brother, Oliver. That's the way it always has been, at least since the siblings' parents died. But everything changes when their parents' legacy leads them to a quest to save their dying city, Morinuin. In search of a new power source, Aneka and Oliver are joined by a pickpocket, a royal servant, a former assassin, and a Native outcast to find the enigmatic Engine Master, who disappeared long after Morinuin was built. Will their mission keep the city afloat amidst war and death?

A research-driven approach, fine-tuned for even greater ease-of-use and student success
For the Fourth Edition of Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Knight continues to build on strong research-based foundations with fine-tuned and streamlined content, hallmark features, and an even more robust MasteringPhysics program, taking student learning to a new level. By extending problem-solving guidance to include a greater emphasis on modeling and significantly revised and more challenging problem sets, students gain confidence and skills in problem solving. A modified Table of Contents and the addition of advanced topics now accommodate different teaching preferences and course structures.
Personalize learning with MasteringPhysics
MasteringPhysics from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.

In the last couple of decades the Boundary Element Method (BEM) has become a well-established technique that is widely used for solving various problems in electrical engineering and electromagnetics. Although there are many excellent research papers published in the relevant literature that describe various BEM applications in electrical engineering and electromagnetics, there has been a lack of suitable textbooks and monographs on the subject. This book presents BEM in a simple fashion in order to help the beginner to understand the very basic principles of the method. It initially derives BEM for the simplest potential problems and subsequently builds on these to formulate BEM for a wide range of applications in electromagnetics. The book aims to introduce both undergraduate and graduate students to the BEM fundamentals in a way that enables the reader to solve more complex problems on their own. In addition, it will serve as a useful text to enable professional engineers and research students to make full use of BEM in electrical engineering.
A new revolution in homeownership and living has been sweeping the booming cities of China. This time the main actors on the social stage are not peasants, migrants, or working-class proletariats but middle-class professionals and entrepreneurs in search of a private paradise in a society now dominated by consumerism. No longer seeking happiness and fulfillment through collective sacrifice and socialist ideals, they hope to find material comfort and social distinction in newly constructed gated communities. This quest for the good life is profoundly transforming the physical and social landscapes of urban China. Li Zhang, who is from Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province, turns a keen ethnographic eye on her hometown. She combines her analysis of larger political and social issues with fine-grained details about the profound spatial, cultural, and political effects of the shift in the way Chinese urban residents live their lives and think about themselves. In Search of Paradise is a deeply informed account of how the rise of private homeownership is reconfiguring urban space, class subjects, gender selfhood, and ways of life in the reform era. New, seemingly individualistic lifestyles mark a dramatic move away from yearning for a social utopia under Maoist socialism. Yet the privatization of property and urban living have engendered a simultaneous movement of public engagement among homeowners as they confront the encroaching power of the developers. This double movement of privatized living and public sphere activism, Zhang finds, is a distinctive feature of the cultural politics of the middle classes in contemporary China. Theoretically sophisticated and highly accessible, Zhang's account will appeal not only to those interested in China but also to anyone interested in spatial politics, middle-class culture, and postsocialist governing in a globalizing world.
Proceedings of sessions honoring the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal at the ASCE Global Engineering Conference 2014, held in Panama City, Panama, October 7-11, 2014. Sponsored by the History and Heritage Committee of ASCE. The history of the Panama Canal began nearly 500 years ago with the discovery by the Spanish of the isthmus between the oceans. Almost 400 years with several failed attempts would pass before the canal finally opened to boat traffic in August, 1914. This collection of nine papers presents the lives and experiences of the engineers and planners who struggled for decades to get the canal accepted, funded, built, and launched in order to ensure its successful operation during the last 100 years. Topics include: early British and French efforts to construct a canal; building the canal and the Gatun Dam; lives of the engineers who worked on the canal; and the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition celebrating the completion of the canal. This collection will be of interest to engineers, students, historians, and anyone interested in the building of this engineering landmark.
