  • Alan Bell & Ana María Schwartz , McGraw Hill Companies, Inc , 2001

This book is aimed at upper-intermediate students, and is designed to further develop the four language skills through a content-based approach, for example by shifting the focus from grammar learning to learning grammar through communication. As such, the eight chapters are themed on concepts in the social sciences, humanities, and applied sciences, and the vocabulary taught is taken from a wide range disciplines. Further exercises and activities are available at the course website, www.mhhe.com/noticias

The question of how to run a good society has puzzled intellectuals for centuries. Should we allow governments to secure a better country, or place our trust in the individual?

  • Management Gurus (Penguin Readers 4)

  • David Evans , Penguin , 2000

From the factory and the boardroom to governments, schools and hospitals, management ideas influence almost every aspect of our lives. But what is the job of a manager? Is business really about people or profit? And is management an art or a science? An introduction to the main ideas of management through the lives of some of the most important thinkers in the history of business including Frederick Taylor, Alfred Sloan, Peter Drucker and Tom Peters.

  • The Strangest Man: The Life of Paul Dirac

  • Graham Farmelo , Faber & Faber , 2010

Paul Dirac was one of the leading pioneers of the greatest revolution in 20th-century science: quantum mechanics. The youngest theoretician ever to win the Nobel Prize for Physics, he was also pathologically reticent, strangely literal-minded and legendarily unable to communicate or empathize. Through his greatest period of productivity, his postcards home contained only remarks about the weather. Based on a previously undiscovered archive of family papers, Graham Farmelo celebrates Dirac's massive scientific achievement while drawing a compassionate portrait of his life and work. Farmelo shows a man who, while hopelessly socially inept, could manage to love and sustain close friendship. The Strangest Man is an extraordinary and moving human story, as well as a study of one of the most exciting times in scientific history.

  • Why Does E=mc2?

  • Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw , Da Capo , 2010

This is an engaging and accessible explanation of Einstein's equation that explores the principles of physics through everyday life. Professor Brian Cox and Professor Jeff Forshaw go on a journey to the frontier of 21st century science to consider the real meaning behind the iconic sequence of symbols that make up Einstein's most famous equation. Breaking down the symbols themselves, they pose a series of questions: What is energy? What is mass? What has the speed of light got to do with energy and mass? In answering these questions, they take us to the site of one of the largest scientific experiments ever conducted. Lying beneath the city of Geneva, straddling the Franco-Swiss boarder, is a 27 km particle accelerator, known as the Large Hadron Collider. Using this gigantic machine - which can recreate conditions in the early Universe fractions of a second after the Big Bang - Cox and Forshaw will describe the current theory behind the origin of mass. Alongside questions of energy and mass, they will consider the third, and perhaps, most intriguing element of the equation: 'c' - or the speed of light. Why is it that the speed of light is the exchange rate? Answering this question is at the heart of the investigation as the authors demonstrate how, in order to truly understand why E=mc2, we first must understand why we must move forward in time and not backwards and how objects in our 3-dimensional world actually move in 4-dimensional space-time. In other words, how the very fabric of our world is constructed. A collaboration between two of the youngest professors in the UK, "Why Does E=MC2?" promises to be one of the most exciting and accessible explanations of the theory of relativity in recent years.
