1. Essentials of sensation and perception - Mather, George
The study of sensation and perception looks at how we acquire, process, and interpret information about the outside world. By describing key ideas from first principles, this straightforward introduction provides easy access to the basic concepts in the subject, and incorporates the most recent advances with useful historical background. The text takes a uniquely integrative approach, highlighting fundamental findings that apply across all the senses - including vision, hearing, touch, pain, balance, smell and taste - rather than considering each sense in isolation. Several pedagogical features help students to engage with the material. ‘Key Term’ and ‘Key Concept’ boxes describe technical...

2. Foundations of sensation and perception [2nd Ed.] - Mather, George
This comprehensive introduction to Sensation and Perception has been highly praised for its unique approach, which begins with the minor senses and progresses to vision. The book begins with an introductory chapter on general physiological, perceptual and theoretical principles which gives the reader the conceptual tools to build a clear understanding of how we perceive the world. The next two chapters then flesh out basic topics such as transduction, receptive fields, and sensory adaptation via coverage of the minor senses (touch, balance, smell, and taste). Later chapters on hearing and vision build on these foundations. This approach allows students to thoroughly...

3. The motion aftereffect: a modern perspective - Mather, George; Verstraten, Frans; Anstis, Stuart
Motion perception lies at the heart of the scientific study of vision. The motion aftereffect (MAE), probably the best known phenomenon in the study of visual illusions, is the appearance of directional movement in a stationary object or scene after the viewer has been exposed to visual motion in the opposite direction. For example, after one has looked at a waterfall for a period of time, the scene beside the waterfall may appear to move upward when ones gaze is transferred to it. Although the phenomenon seems simple, research has revealed surprising complexities in the underlying mechanisms, and offered general...

4. Royal Court: International - Aston, Elaine; O'Thomas, Mark
Royal Court: International is the first full-length study of the Royal Court Theatre's International Department. It charts the engagement of the UK's premiere theatre for new writing with an internationalist agenda and takes readers inside the process developed by the Court for the workshop projects it has undertaken in different parts of the world since the late 1990s. Covering the theatre's unique programming of international plays and seasons, it highlights new writing from different parts of the globe, including France, Spain, Germany, Russia, Eastern Europe, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Columbia, Iran, the Near East, North Africa, Nigeria and India. First-hand accounts...

5. Social movement campaigns on EU policy: in the corridors and in the streets - Parks, Louisa
The book explores the impacts of social movement campaigns on EU policy issues, arguing that a ‘political-technical’ divide in campaign styles exists, with corresponding effects on outcomes. Specifically, this argument refers not to the actual content of the issues campaigns form around, but the shapes that campaigns take according to their degree of involvement in consultation processes with the European Commission. Six campaigns (on GMOs, chemicals legislation, the right to water European Citizens' Initiative, the Lisbon Agenda, the Services Directive and the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) are investigated using tools from the study of social movements to illustrate this argument.

6. Access to justice: a critical analysis of recoverable conditional fees and no win no fee funding - Peysner, John
Access to Justice addresses a remarkable experiment in the funding of money damage claims - largely personal injury claims - which began in 2000 and which the Government effectively abolished in 2013. The model - recoverable conditional fees - adopted by the incoming New Labour administration was unique and, for reasons that the book explains, it has remained so. This book is based on a review of published material, the author's own view as a 'participant' in the process and anonymised semi structured interviews with other participants, from Government; claimant and defendant lawyers and litigation insurers. It covers the development,...

7. Innovative clusters: drivers of national innovation systems - Hertog, Pim den; Bergman, Edward M.; Charles, David; Remoe, Svend
The growth potential of countries increasingly depends on the effectiveness of their innovation systems in creating, diffusing and using knowledge. A large share of market-based or informal knowledge flows occur within industrial clusters that can be seen as reduced-form innovation systems. Policies to stimulate innovation at national and local levels must both build on and contribute to the dynamics of innovative clusters. This book presents a series of papers written by policy makers and academic experts in the field, that demonstrate why and how this can be done in different national contexts

8. Technology transfer in Europe: public and private networks - Charles, David; Howells, Jeremy
The book examines university industry links in the UK, Spain and Greece.

9. Technology and competition in the international telecommunications industry - Charles, David; Monk, Peter; Scibberas, Ed
The book examines the effects of economies of scale and scope and the effects of manufacturing technologies on the competitiveness of firms in the telecommunication subscriber equipment industry. Case studies are drawn from the UK, France, Germany, Japan and the US.

10. Typewriter art: a modern anthology - Tullett, Barrie; Dowling, John; Simpson, Jodi
This book brings together some of the best examples by typewriter artists around the world. As well as key historical work from the Bauhaus, H. N. Werkman and the concrete poets, there is art by contemporary practitioners, both typewriter artists who use the keyboard as a ‘palette’ to create artworks, and artists/typographers using the form as a compositional device.

13. Quality improvement in primary care: the essential guide - Gillam, Stephen; Siriwardena, A. Niroshan
This book provides readers with an invaluable set of tools to convert the endless challenges for quality and myriad opportunities for improvement into meaningful and useful change. It begins by considering how to manage primary care organisations in order to improve quality of care. Patient perspectives on quality are examined initially, moving onto market mechanisms and commissioning which are increasingly being used as levers for change. It also considers how general practices are regulated and held accountable for the quality of the services they provide. All doctors work within teams, organisations and the wider health system. How these are designed...

14. Masculinity and same-sex desire in industrial England, 1895-1957 - Smith, Helen
This book provides the first academic study of non-metropolitan men who desired other men in the period from 1895-1957. It places issues of class, masculinity and regionality alongside sexuality in seeking to understand how men experienced their emotional and sexual relationships with each other. This in turn, demonstrates new understandings of working-class culture, gender and the position of work in the identity of working-class men. The book takes a thematic approach to analyse the changes and continuities in how men experienced their sexual and emotional lives over the period and to map broader social and cultural changes. It uses a...

15. Watching the watchers: parliament and the intelligence services - Bochel, Hugh; Defty, Andrew; Kirkpatrick, Jane
This study offers a new and detailed examination of parliamentary scrutiny of the British intelligence and security agencies. Through detailed analysis of parliamentary business, coupled with interviews with MPs, peers and senior officials, it examines the various mechanisms by which parliament seeks to scrutinise the secret state, and assesses the extent to which parliament has both the capacity and the will to provide effective oversight of intelligence and security policy and agencies. In addition to providing a detailed analysis of the impact of the Intelligence and Security Committee, this is the first book to examine the various other means by...

16. Transitional justice and legacies of state violence - White, Lisa
As politicians, public bodies and non-Governmental organisations continue to profess an interest in making peace with the past, this highly original study explores the motivation, significance and legacy of ‘making public’ experiences of state violence in Northern Ireland. Based on a synthesis of documentary material with the findings from a series of contemporary interviews, this timely book uncovers the reasoning behind many Republican former detainees’ accounts of state violence and torture. It examines the aims of those who ‘went public’ during the conflict and discusses the meaning they attached to their stories and the various responses to them. It also identifies...

17. Friendship in medieval Iberia: historical, legal and literary perspectives - Liuzzo Scorpo, Antonella
Private and public relationships between individuals or groups - frequently labelled as friendships - have played a central role in human societies. Yet, over the centuries ideas and meanings of friendship transformed, adapting to the political and social climate of a period, and consequently resisting rigid definitions. Changing concepts and practices of friendship characterized the intellectual, social, political and cultural panorama of medieval Europe, including that of the fascinating and yet understudied thirteenth-century Iberia. The Peninsula’s fascinating history, as the subject of conquests and ‘Reconquest’, land of convivencia, but also of rebellions, political instability, and secular and religious international power-struggles,...

18. What is creativity, where is innovation? - Maycroft, Neil; Shorthose, Jim

19. The correspondence of Dr. Martin Lister (1639-1712) [Volume One 1662-1677] - Roos, Anna Marie
Martin Lister (1639–1712) was a consummate virtuoso, the first arachnologist and conchologist, and a Royal physician. As one of the most prominent corresponding fellows of the Royal Society, many of Lister’s discoveries in natural history, archaeology, medicine, and chemistry were printed in the Philosophical Transactions. Lister corresponded extensively with explorers and other virtuosi such as John Ray, who provided him with specimens, observations, and locality records from Jamaica, America, Barbados, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and his native England. This volume of ca. 400 letters (one of three), consists of Lister’s correspondence dated from 1662 to 1677, including his time as...

20. The return of the epic film: genre, aesthetics and history in the 21st century - Elliott, Andrew
This book explores the return of the 'epic' in 21st-century cinema. With the success of Gladiator, both critics and scholars enthusiastically announced the return of a genre which had lain dormant for 30 years. However, this return raises important new questions which remain unanswered. Why did the epic come back, and why did it fall out of fashion? Are these the same kinds of epics as the 1950s and 60s, or are there aesthetic differences? Can we treat Kingdom of Heaven, 300 and Thor indiscriminately as one genre? Are non-Western histories like Hero and Mongol epics, too? Finally, what precisely...
