Islands in the Net

**In a near-future new age of corporate control, hacker mercenaries, and electronic terrorism, a public relations executive on the rise finds herself caught in the violent epicenter of a data war**
Two decades into the twenty-first century, the world’s nations are becoming irrelevant. Corporations are the true global powers, with information the most valuable currency, while the smaller island nations have become sanctuaries for data pirates and terrorists. A globe-trotting PR executive for the large corporate economic democracy Rizome Industries Group, Laura Webster is present when a foreign representative is assassinated on Rizome soil during a conference for offshore data havens. Dispatched immediately on an international mission of diplomacy, Laura hopes she can make a difference in a volatile, unsteady world, but instead finds herself trapped on the front lines of rapidly escalating third-world hostilities and caught up in an inescapable net of conspiracy, terrorism, post-millennial voodoo, and electronic warfare.
During the 1980s, science fiction luminary Bruce Sterling envisioned the future . . . and hit it almost dead-on. The author who, along with William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Rudy Rucker, helped create and define the cyberpunk subgenre imagines a world of tomorrow in *Islands in the Net* that bears a striking—and disturbing—resemblance to our present-day information-age reality. Nominated for the Hugo and Locus Awards and winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, Sterling’s extraordinary novel is a gripping, eye-opening, and remarkably prescient science fiction classic.

Iran Awakening: A memoir of revolution and hope

In this remarkable book, Shirin Ebadi, Iranian human rights lawyer and activist, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, tells her extraordinary life story.
Dr Ebadi is a tireless voice for reform in her native Iran, where she argues for a new interpretation of Sharia law in harmony with vital human rights such as democracy, equality before the law, religious freedom and freedom of speech. She is known for defending dissident figures, and for the establishment of a number of non-profit grassroots organisations dedicated to human rights. In 2003 she became the first Muslim woman, and the first Iranian, to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
She chronicles her childhood and upbringing before the Iranian Revolution, her education and student years at the University of Tehran, her marriage and its challenges, her religious faith, and her life as a mother and as an advocate for the oppressed. As a human rights campaigner, in particular for women, children and political prisoners in Iran, her autobiography is a must-read for anyone fascinated by the life story and beliefs of a courageous and unusual woman, as well as those interested in current events (especially those of the Middle East), and those who want to know the truth about the position of women in a Muslim society. **

Introduzione a Darwin (I Filosofi)

Ogni volume di questa collana costituisce un ampio capitolo di storia della filosofia, dedicato a un autore o a una corrente di pensiero. Le singole «Introduzioni» offrono gli strumenti critici essenziali per intendere l’opera dei filosofi alla luce delle più recenti prospettive storiografiche.«Il 12 febbraio del 1809 nasceva un uomo schivo che ebbe in sorte di cambiare per sempre il nostro modo di intendere la natura, e il posto della specie umana in essa. Uno scienziato che ha saputo condensare in una vita sola: una giovinezza spensierata senza troppa voglia di studiare; un viaggio avventuroso di cinque anni attorno al mondo così denso di meraviglia da apparire come un perfetto romanzo di formazione; un secondo viaggio londinese, tutto mentale questa volta, all’inseguimento di un’intuizione rivoluzionaria e inconfessabile; venti lunghi anni di silenzio operoso nella campagna del Kent; la morte della figlia più amata; e poi un precipitare quasi teatrale di accadimenti con la lettera occasionale di un potenziale rivale, la corsa alla pubblicazione, il successo mondiale dell’Origine delle specie, lo scandalo nella buona società dell’epoca, il sottrarsi alle polemiche, la fama internazionale, le opere apparentemente bizzarre della vecchiaia, le ansie di vita eterna della moglie, un ultimo libro sui lombrichi, gli onori della sepoltura in Westminster. Il tutto in un uomo solo, che forse non cercava tanto».Telmo Pievani racconta l’affascinante e rocambolesca vita dello scienziato che con la sua teoria dell’evoluzione per selezione naturale ha cambiato per sempre la nostra concezione del mondo vivente. Oltre ai testi classici, il volume attinge anche a documenti privati e meno conosciuti della sterminata ‘industria darwiniana’ (diari, taccuini, le migliaia di lettere, le monografie cosiddette ‘minori’), una mole di testi così ingente da essere ancora oggi in corso di sistemazione e di studio.

Introducing Markdown and Pandoc

Discover how to write manuscripts in Markdown and translate them with Pandoc into different output formats. You’ll use Markdown to annotate text formatting information with a strong focus on semantic information: you can annotate your text with information about where chapters and sections start, but not how chapter and heading captions should be formatted. As a result, you’ll decouple the structure of a text from how it is visualized and make it easier for you to produce different kinds of output. The same text can easily be formatted as HTML, PDF, or Word documents, with various visual styles, by tools that understand the markup annotations.
Finally, you’ll learn to use Pandoc, a tool for translating between different markup languages, such as LaTeX, HTML, and Markdown. This book will not describe all the functionality that Pandoc provides, but will teach you how to translate Markdown documents, how to customize your documents using templates, and how to extend Pandoc’s functionality using filters. If that is something you are interested in, Introducing Markdown and Pandoc will get you started.
With this set of skills you’ll be able to write more efficiently without worrying about needless formatting and other distractions.
**What You Will Learn**
* Why and how to use Markdown and Pandoc
* Write Markdown
* Use extensions available in Pandoc and Markdown
* Write math and code blocks
* Use templates and produce documents

**Who This Book Is For**
Programmers and problem solvers looking for technical documentation solutions.

Discover how to write manuscripts in Markdown and translate them with Pandoc into different output formats. You’ll use Markdown to annotate text formatting information with a strong focus on semantic information: you can annotate your text with information about where chapters and sections start, but not how chapter and heading captions should be formatted. As a result, you’ll decouple the structure of a text from how it is visualized and make it easier for you to produce different kinds of output. The same text can easily be formatted as HTML, PDF, or Word documents, with various visual styles, by tools that understand the markup annotations.
Finally, you’ll learn to use Pandoc, a tool for translating between different markup languages, such as LaTeX, HTML, and Markdown. This book will not describe all the functionality that Pandoc provides, but will teach you how to translate Markdown documents, how to customize your documents using templates, and how to extend Pandoc’s functionality using filters.

Into the Out Of

Earth is being invaded by the shetani—-spirit creatures so small and stealthy that only one man knows about the increasing peril. The potential savior is an African elder named Olkeloki who is capable of fighting evil both in this world and the spirit one. But to be successful he must recruit the help of two others: government agent Joshua Oak and a feisty young woman named Merry Sharrow. Only the three of them can keep the shetani from destroying reality as we know it.
