Why buy our paperbacks?
BEWARE OF LOW-QUALITY SELLERS
Don't buy cheap paperbacks just to save a few dollars. Most of them use low-quality papers & binding. Their pages fall off easily. Some of them even use very small font size of 6 or less to increase their profit margin. It makes their books completely unreadable.
About A Study In Scarlet
A Study in Scarlet is an 1887 detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle. Written in 1886, the story marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, who would become among the most famous characters in literature. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes, an amateur detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it." (A "study" is a preliminary drawing, sketch or painting done in preparation for a finished piece. The story, and its main characters, attracted little public interest when it first appeared. Only 11 complete copies of the magazine in which the story first appeared, Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887, are known to exist now and they have considerable value. Although Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories featuring Holmes, A Study in Scarlet is one of only four full-length novels in the original canon. The novel was followed by The Sign of the Four, published in 1890. A Study in Scarlet was the first work of detective fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as an investigative tool.
Violence Among The Mentally Ill: Proceedings Of The Nato Advanced Study Institute On Effective Prevention Of Crime And Violence Among Persons With Major Mental Disorders, Il Ciocco, Italy, 16th May To 26th May 1999
The NATO Advanced Study Institute on the Prevention of Crime and Violence Among the Mentally III was held in May 1999 in Tuscany, Italy. Participants from 15 countries attended. Since care for persons with mental illness (schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disorder, delusional disorder, atypical psychoses) has been deinstitutionalized, some persons with these disorders are committing crimes and serious violence. Consequently, societies around the world are confronted with a new challenge: to provide mental health care and social services to mentally ill persons in a humane way that will prevent illegal behaviours. Research in this field has been dominated by investigations designed to improve clinicians' accuracy in predicting violent behaviours, with little attention focused on the organization and implemen- tation of treatments. The premise of the Advanced Study Institute was that treatments must have em- pirically proven efficacy. Both professional ethics and public accountability require empirical evidence that each treatment will alleviate the problem that it targets. However, despite the fact that Western industrial societies provide treatment for mentally ill persons who have offended, there is a very limited base of knowledge on what constitutes effective treatment and how such treatments should be organized and delivered. The Advanced Study Institute was an attempt to stimulate and encour- age research that will extend this knowledge base. The goals were to review what is known about mentally ill offenders and about effective treatments for them, and to provide a framework for the orientation of future investigations designed to improve treatment efficacy.
Crystal Structure Of Fiber Structured Pentacene Thin Films - A Crystal Truncation Rod Study Using Synchrotron X-rays
It is widely recognized that the intrinsic charge transport properties in organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) depend strongly on the crystal structure of the organic semiconductor layer. Pentacene, showing one of the highest charge carrier mobilities among organic semiconductors, is known to crystallize in at least four polymorphs, which can be distinguished by their layer periodicity d(001). Only two polymorphs grow as single crystals, and their detailed crystal structure has been solved. The substrate-induced 15.4 A polymorph is the most relevant for OTFT applications; however, its crystal structure has remained incomplete as it only grows as a fiber structured thin film. In this work, the crystal truncation rod X-ray scattering technique is extended to fiber structured thin films. Through this novel technique, the complete crystal structure of this polymorph grown on technologically relevant substrates could be solved. It was also discovered, that the molecular arrangement within the unit cell is substrate dependent, which may lead to a controlled fine-tuning of intrinsic charge transport properties."
