  5. Geoffrey Swain: Against the Grain


    Acclaimed historian, and retired Alec Nove Chair in Russian and East European History at the University of Glasgow, Geoffrey Swain, has written extensively on the history of Russia and Eastern Europe during the twentieth century, in particular on Russia during the Civil War, Latvia during the first years of Soviet rule, and the career of Josip Broz Tito. Esteemed for his pursuit of historical enquiry which went "against the grain" of commonly accepted views of communism in power, significantly, Swain also explored the strength or coherence of some of the alternatives that emerged to the paths actually taken, themes which, in...

  6. Russian Modernisation: Structures and Agencies


    Russia’s post-Soviet modernisation is complex and subject to changing interpretations among Russian political leaders and observers of Russia. This has created serious problems for understanding Russia and the changes it is currently undergoing. With this in mind, a new Finnish Centre of Excellence was established in 2012 at the Aleksanteri Institute of the University of Helsinki under the title ‘Choices of Russian Modernisation’. This collection of essays represents some of the first examples of the Centre’s research. Reflecting the broad range of issues explored in the work of the Centre, it covers questions of Russia’s historical legacy, technological development, energy...

  7. Understanding Energy Security in Central and Eastern Europe: Russia, Transition and National Interest


    The purpose of this book is to move beyond the approach which views energy as a purely geopolitical tool of the Russian state and assumes a 'one size fits all' approach to energy security in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). It argues that in order to fully understand Russian involvement in the regional energy complex, the CEE-Russian energy relationship should be analysed in the context of the political and economic transitions that Russia and the CEE states underwent. The chapters on individual countries in the book demonstrate that, although Russia has and will continue to play a substantial role in...

  9. Handbook of Textile Coloration and Finishing


    Textile wet processing involves a series of complex physico-chemical steps throughout the production process of a wide variety of consumer and industrial products. Textile dyeing, printing and finishing are most basic aspects of textile manufacturing process. The ever growing demand of sustainable textile coloration and finishing technologies has created immense pressure on researchers and various stakeholders in textile industry to develop highly competitive, resource efficient, technologically advanced and sustainable methods to meet current industrial requirements. Fundamental knowledge and technical understanding of current developments is necessary for all stakeholders in textile industry to grow and remain competitive in global market. The...

  10. Frontiers in Modern Optics


    The year 2015 was designated by the United Nations General Assembly as the Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, and also marks the anniversaries of a number of significant historical events related to light. In 1015, Ibn Al-Haytham published his book of optics; in 1815, Fresnel first proposed the notion that light is actually a wave; James Clerk Maxwell then firmly established this concept with his electromagnetic theory of light propagation; and Einstein announced his discovery of the photoelectric effect, demonstrating that light is made of photons in 1905, followed in 1915 by his general theory of relativity, in which...

    This edited collection, including contributors from the disciplines of art history, film studies, cultural geography and cultural anthropology, explores ways in which islands in the north of England and Scotland have provided space for a variety of visual-cultural practices and forms of creative expression which have informed our understanding of the world. Simultaneously the essays reflect upon the importance of these islands as a space in which, and with which, to contemplate the pressures and the possibilities within contemporary society. This book makes a timely and original contribution to the developing field of island studies, and will be of interest...

  17. Proceedings Third Workshop on Graphs as Models


    Graphs are used as models in many areas of computer science and computer engineering. For example graphs are used to represent syntax, control and data flow, dependency, state spaces, models such as UML and other types of domain-specific models, and social network graphs. In all of these examples, the graph serves as an intuitive yet mathematically precise foundation for many purposes, both in theory building as well as in practical applications. Graph-based models serve as an abstract communication medium and are used to describe various concepts and phenomena. Moreover, once such graph-based models are constructed, they can be analyzed and...
