Introducing quantum theory by J. P McEvoy ( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and French and held by 507 libraries worldwide
"How does quantum theory explain all of the chemistry and most of physics? Why does this theory upset common sense? At the sub-atomic level, one particle seems to know what others are doing, so-called non-locality, and there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed, says Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. Yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied." "Introducing Quantum Theory takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key players - Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrodinger and others. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here along with description of the two questions raised against Bohr's Copenhagen Interpretation...the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved at the end of the 20th century."--BOOK JACKET.

9 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
"Stephen Hawking is the best-known theoretical physicist alive today but few people outside his field know what he has done. To the public at large he is a legendary figure of tragic dimensions - a brilliant scientist and author of the phenomenal bestseller, A Brief History of Time - and yet confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak or write." "Hawking has mastered the two great theories of physics from this century, Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. He has made breath-taking discoveries about where these theories break down or overlap, such as the edge of a Black Hole or the Big Bang origin of the Universe. Here is the perfect beginner's guide to Hawking's work including his present research into Quantum Gravity."--BOOK JACKET.

Introducing Freud by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Romanian and held by 222 libraries worldwide
Freud revolutionized the way we think about ourselves. His psychoanalytic terms such as Id, Ego, libido, neurosis and Oedipus Complex have become a part of our everyday vocabulary. But do we know what they really mean? "Introducing Freud" successfully demystifies the facts of Freud's discovery of psychoanalysis. Irreverent and witty but never trivial, the book tells the story of Freud's life and ideas from his upbringing in 19th-century Vienna, his early medical career and his encounter with cocaine, to the gradual evolution of his theories on the unconscious, dreams and sexuality. With its combination of brilliantly clever artwork and incisive text, this book has achieved international success as one of the most entertaining and informative introductions to the father of psychoanalysis--Cover,[p.4].

"Melanie Klein was a pioneer in child psychoanalysis, who developed several groundbreaking concepts in the study of infant and early child development."

However, her work on depression and paranoid schizophrenia, which caused much upset at the time, is now in common use with psychoanalysts and academics in other fields of the human sciences."--BOOK JACKET.

Machiavelli for beginners by Patrick Curry ( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 136 libraries worldwide
""Machiavellian" is a popular byword for treachery and opportunism. Machiavelli's classic book on statecraft, The Prince, published over 400 years ago, remains controversial to this day because of its electrifying frankness as a practical guide to power. Is it a how-to manual for dictators, a cynical philosophy of "the end justifies the means", or a more complex and subtle analysis of successful government?" "Machiavelli was a loyal servant of the Florentine Republic. His opposition to Medici despotism resulted in his torture on the rack and exile. Yet he chose as his model for the Prince the most notorious tyrant, Cesare Borgia. Introducing Machiavelli traces the colorful life of this paradoxical realist whose clear-sighted patriotism made him the first truly modern political scientist. Machiavelli is seen as central to the postmodern debate on Civil Society."--BOOK JACKET.
