Takaki traces the economic and political history of Indians, African Americans, Mexicans, Japanese, Chinese, Irish, and Jewish people in America, with considerable attention given to instances and consequences of racism. The narrative is laced with short quotations, cameos of personal experiences, and excerpts from folk music and literature. Well-known occurrences, such as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, the Trail of Tears, the Harlem Renaissance, and the Japanese internment are included. Students may be surprised by some of the revelations, but will recognize a constant thread of rampant racism. The author concludes with a summary of today's changing economic climate and offers Rodney King's challenge to all of us to try to get along. Readers will find this overview to be an accessible, cogent jumping-off place for American history and political science plus a guide to the myriad other sources identified in the notes.

A longtime professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, Ronald Takaki was recognized as one of the foremost scholars of American ethnic history and diversity. When the first edition of A Different Mirror was published in 1993, Publishers Weekly called it "a brilliant revisionist history of America that is likely to become a classic of multicultural studies" and named it one of the ten best books of the year. Now Rebecca Stefoff, who adapted Howard Zinn's best-selling A People's History of the United States for younger readers, turns the updated 2008 edition of Takaki's multicultural masterwork into A Different Mirror for Young People. Drawing on Takaki's vast array of primary sources, and staying true to his own words whenever possible, A Different Mirror for Young People brings ethnic history alive through the words of people, including teenagers, who recorded their experiences in letters, diaries, and poems. Like Zinn's A People's History, Takaki's A Different Mirror offers a rich and rewarding "people's view" perspective on the American story.

A little over ?ve years have passed since the ?rst edition of this book appeared in print. Seems like an instant but also eternity, especially considering numerous developments in the hardware and software that have made it from the laboratory test beds into the real world of powder diffraction. This prompted a revision, which had to be beyond cosmetic limits. The book was, and remains focused on standard laboratory powder diffractometry. It is still meant to be used as a text for teaching students about the capabilities and limitations of the powder diffraction method. We also hope that it goes beyond a simple text, and therefore, is useful as a reference to practitioners of the technique. The original book had seven long chapters that may have made its use as a text - convenient. So the second edition is broken down into 25 shorter chapters. The ?rst ?fteen are concerned with the fundamentals of powder diffraction, which makes it much more logical, considering a typical 16-week long semester. The last ten ch- ters are concerned with practical examples of structure solution and re?nement, which were preserved from the ?rst edition and expanded by another example – R solving the crystal structure of Tylenol .
Follow our hero on the roller-coaster ride that was his boyhood. From humble beginnings in a small coal-mining community, where life was largely idyllic, Joel is thrust into the alien environment of a plush boys' boarding school and things begin to unravel. As if on cue the Falklands Conflict touches Joel's life. A life already in a downward spiral due to isolation, bullying, and frequent beatings at school and at home. Disaster followed disaster as the once peaceful village becomes a war zone when a national strike turns friends and family against one another. Starved of affection both at home and at school, Joel's one friend blurs the lines of friendship and love, can friendship endure once innocence is lost? Will Joel sink or swim? Whatever happens he was certain not to go down without a fight.
Editorial Review Dr. Bakshi has compiled a thorough, clear reference text covering the important fields of EUV lithography for high-volume manufacturing. This book has resulted from his many years of experience in EUVL development and from teaching this subject to future specialists. The book proceeds from an historical perspective of EUV lithography, through source technology, optics, projection system design, mask, resist, and patterning performance, to cost of ownership. Each section contains worked examples, a comprehensive review of challenges, and relevant citations for those who wish to further investigate the subject matter. Dr. Bakshi succeeds in presenting sometimes unfamiliar material in a very clear manner. This book is also valuable as a teaching tool. It has become an instant classic and far surpasses others in the EUVL field. -- Dr. Akira Endo, Chief Development Manager, Gigaphoton Inc. Description Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) is the principal lithography technology aiming to manufacture computer chips beyond the current 193-nm-based optical lithography, and recent progress has been made on several fronts: EUV light sources, optics, optics metrology, contamination control, masks and mask handling, and resists. This comprehensive volume is comprised of contributions from the world's leading EUVL researchers and provides all of the critical information needed by practitioners and those wanting an introduction to the field. Interest in EUVL technology continues to increase, and this volume provides the foundation required for understanding and applying this exciting technology. About the editor of EUV Lithography Dr. Vivek Bakshi previously served as a senior member of the technical staff at SEMATECH; he is now president of EUV Litho, Inc., in Austin, Texas.
