Riots : an international comparison by Matthew Moran( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The past ten years have been marked by a series of high profile and heavily mediatised riots across the globe. From the overspill of racial tensions in Sydney to anti-police riots in London, democratic societies have witnessed powerful and costly outbursts of anger and violence. But what are the causes of these large-scale episodes of collective disorder? Do they share common features? And what can they tell us about the nature and significance of riots more broadly? In this book, the authors address these questions and more with a wide-ranging comparative study of rioting in five countries (Australia, England, France, Greece and the United States). Using a revised and expanded version of the Flashpoints Model of Public Disorder, Matthew Moran and David Waddington dissect these violent and ephemeral social phenomena, laying bare their internal logic and demonstrating the essentially political nature of riots."--Back cover
Living on the edge : Iran and the practice of nuclear hedging by Wyn Q Bowen( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the authors explore the controversial Iranian nuclear programme through the conceptual lens of nuclear hedging. In 2002, revelations regarding undeclared nuclear facilities thrust Iran’s nuclear activities under the spotlight and prompted concerns that Tehran was pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran has always denied nuclear weapons aspirations, yet it cannot be disputed that the Islamic Republic has gone well beyond what is required for a civil nuclear programme based on energy production and scientific research. What, then, is the nature and significance of Iran's nuclear behaviour? Does it form part of a coherent strategy? What can Iran's actions in the nuclear field tell us about Tehran's intentions? And what does the Iranian case teach us about proliferation behaviour more generally? This book addresses these questions by exploring the nature of nuclear hedging and how this approach might be identified, before applying this logic to the Iranian case. It provides fresh insights into the inherently opaque area of nuclear proliferation and a more nuanced interpretation of the Iranian nuclear challenge
Trust in nuclear disarmament verification by Wyn Q Bowen( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how human factors, in particular the contested notion of trust, influence the conduct and practice of arms control verification. In the nuclear arena, disarmament verification is often viewed purely in terms of a dispassionate, scientific process. Yet this view is fundamentally flawed since the technical impossibility of 100 per cent verification opens the door to a host of complex issues and questions regarding the process and its outcomes. Central among these is the fact that those involved in any verification inspection process must inevitably conduct their work in a space that falls well short of absolute certainty. Drawing on extensive empirical evidence, the authors explore the complex interplay between evidence-based judgements and perceptions of intentions that frames the science of verification. The book provides new insights into the role and influence of human factors in the verification process, shedding light on this 'blind spot' of verification research. It is an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics and students working in arms control and disarmament. Professor Wyn Bowen is Head of the School of Security Studies at King's College London.

The semantic web : semantics for data and services on the web ; with 18 tables by Vipul Kashyap( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Semantic Web is a vision - the idea of having data on the Web defined and linked in such a way that it can be used by machines not just for display purposes but for automation, integration and reuse of data across various applications. Technically, however, there is a widespread misconception that the Semantic Web is primarily a rehash of existing AI and database work focused on encoding knowledge representation formalisms in markup languages such as RDF(S), DAML+OIL or OWL. Kashyap, Bussler, and Moran seek to dispel this notion by presenting the broad dimensions of this emerging Semantic Web and the multi-disciplinary technological underpinnings like machine learning, information retrieval, service-oriented architectures, and grid computing, thus combining the informational and computational aspects needed to realize the full potential of the Semantic Web vision. Throughout the book, the use-case of a clinical vignette will serve to motivate and explain solutions based on Semantic Web technologies, emphasizing the application aspects related to data integration, knowledge acquisition, change management, semantic web services, and workflow management. With this textbook, the authors deliver an application-driven state-of-the-art presentation of Semantic Web technologies, ideally suited for academic courses on the Semantic Web and architectures of information systems, and for self-studying professionals engaged in the design and implementation of advanced application systems
