Exploring the Palace of the Peacock : essays on Wilson Harris by Joyce Sparer Adler( )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wilson Harris, Guyanese novelist, poet and surveyor, is known for his experimental and complex fiction. His is a unique and vivid perspective, and students of West Indian literature often find his fiction daunting, but it is nevertheless richly rewarding. Harris's voice is distinctive and unparalleled among West Indian writers, and indeed, as Joyce Sparer Adler shows, through his novels he engages in the ongoing literary and philosophical dialogue of the ages." "Adler's essays on Harris, originally published in various journals, are collected here for the first time and now available to a wider audience. The collection includes her previously unpublished essay on Harris's cross-cultural dialogue with Melville, and a substantial autobiographical essay by Wilson Harris."--BOOK JACKET
A new look at geometry by Irving Adler( Book )

21 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly detailed overview surveys the development and evolution of geometrical ideas and concepts from ancient times to the present. In addition to the relationship between physical and mathematical spaces, it examines the interactions of geometry, algebra, and calculus. The text proves many significant theorems and employs several important techniques. Chapters on non-Euclidean geometry and projective geometry form brief, self-contained treatments. More than 100 exercises with answers and 200 diagrams illuminate the text. Teachers, students (particularly those majoring in mathematics education), and mathematically minded readers will appreciate this outstanding exploration of the role of geometry in the development of Western scientific thought.
