The Japanese Discovery of America by Peter Duus
English | Mar. 1997 | ISBN: 0312163789 | 226 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

This brief documentary history chronicles the nineteenth-century (1837-1871) encounters between Japan and the United States that led to the opening of Japanese society to Western influence. An extensive introduction describes American attempts to overturn Japan's long-standing policy of isolation (culminating in the 1853-1854 Perry Expedition) and considers the lasting effects of Japan's fascination with a culture radically different from its own.

Ant Encounters: Interaction Networks and Colony Behavior
Language: English | EPUB | ISBN-10: 0691138796 | 2010 | 152 pages | 0.3 MB

How do ant colonies get anything done, when no one is in charge? An ant colony operates without a central control or hierarchy, and no ant directs another. Instead, ants decide what to do based on the rate, rhythm, and pattern of individual encounters and interactions–resulting in a dynamic network that coordinates the functions of the colony. Ant Encounters provides a revealing and accessible look into ant behavior from this complex systems perspective.

Greatest Hits is a strange release. Sure, Tupac Shakur had more than enough hits to make a terrific compilation, but its appearance in the fall of 1998 felt a bit like another opportunity to milk his catalog, simply because of the plethora of releases, from previously unheard recordings to interview discs and bootlegs. Even with these misgivings taken into account, it has to be said that Greatest Hits does its job well. Given that it runs 25 tracks and two CDs, some may argue that it does its job a little too well, but the fact of the matter is, this contains all of his big hits, from "Keep Ya Head Up" and "Dear Mama" to "California Love" and "I Ain't Mad at Cha." Some may argue that it would have been more effective if it was sequenced in chronological order, but this remains the best place for casual listeners to get all the 2Pac they need.
