Michael von Albrecht's "A History of Roman Literature," originally published in German, can rightly be seen as the long awaited counterpart to Albin Lesky's "Geschichte der Griechischen Literatur," In what will probably be the last survey made by a single scholar the whole of Latin literature from Livius Andronicus up to Boethius comes to the fore. 'Literature' is taken here in its broad, antique sense, and therefore also includes e.g. rhetoric, philosophy and history. Special attention has been given to the influence of Latin literature on subsequent centuries down to our own days.

Paget Toynbee for his help in reading the proofs. I cannot put out on this venture without acknowledgment of my obligation to two scholars, who have had nothing to do with my employment of all that I have borrowed from them, the Oxford editors of the Old Northern Poetry, Dr. Gudbrand Vigfusson and Mr. York Powell. I have still to learn what Mr. York Powell thinks of these discourses. What Gudbrand Vigfusson would have thought I cannot guess, but I am glad to remember the wise goodwill which he was always ready to give, with so much else from the...
This book is a review and analysis of the literature and presenta-
tion of data from a series of surveys that attempts to provide in-
sights into how engineers communicate. Much of the focus of the
book is on the professional aspects of engineers’ work, the infor-
mation resources used to perform their work, and information
output from their work that is communicated to others. Many of
our studies and those of others dealt with traditional interperson-
al and written communication channels....
This edition of theHandbook of Counseling Psychologylik,e all three prior editions, has three primary
objectives: (1) to provide a scholarly review of important areas of counseling psychology inquiry, (2) to
elaborate directions for future research, and (3) to draw specific suggestions for practice that derive from
the scholarly literature in counseling psychology and related disciplines.
This second edition of the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research (ENR), like the first, is a
comprehensive, yet concise and authoritative guide to existing nursing research literature. It
charts the course of nursing research since 1983 when the first edition of the Annual Review
of Nursing Research (ARNR) was published.
The original edition of ENR, published in 1998, grew from a long-standing commitment
of the publisher, Dr. Ursula Springer, to the field of nursing, and my commitment to nurse
scholars around the globe.
The moving stories that people with a mental illness have published were the
inspiration for this work, and we are deeply indebted to all those people who have
shared their experiences with others in order to enhance our understanding. We
have written this book to share a model of psychological recovery from mental
illness which was derived from many personal accounts. There is a large and growing
scholarly literature on recovery, most of which is in broad agreement about the
elements of recovery and the many influences on the course of mental illness and its
impact on the individual...
Priority is given to books and book series that have
relatively greater citation impact. Book Citation
Index now covers over 150 highly cited book series
in Science, Social Science, and Arts & Humanities.
Journal and proceedings citations to books in these
series indicate that they are well-integrated into the
scholarly communication network. The Book Citation
Index uncovers another dimension of this network
by opening citation pathways leading to and from
publications in the wider world of books.
In 1850 Charlotte Brontë paid a visit to Harriet Martineau at Ambleside, and she wrote to her friends various
emphatic accounts of her hostess. 'Without adopting her theories,' Miss Brontë said, 'I yet find a worth and
greatness in herself, and a consistency, benevolence, perseverance in her practice, such as wins the sincerest
esteem and affection. She is not a person to be judged by her writings alone, but rather by her own deeds and
life, than which nothing can be more exemplary or noble.'
The goal of these selection processes is to build a comprehensive view of the scholarly literature
across the major formats: journals, conference proceedings, and now scholarly books. By careful
evaluation of the content and format of each publication, Thomson Reuters assures not only that
all citation indexes in Web of Science contain the most relevant and timely research, but also that
rigorous Bibliographic Control will ensure that this research is discoverable.
But comprehensive does not necessarily mean all-inclusive.
The acceptance bias toward the traditional axis of scholarly literature confirms what publishers experience
day-to-day: there are greater challenges to reviewing and making decisions on this sharp influx of content
from new countries, with diverse cultures and attitudes to publishing, non-English languages (the lingua
franca of academic publication in most subject areas), and a lack of publishing history.
Professor Claus Westermann of the University of Heidelberg is well known
to Old Testament scholars and students in the English-speaking world. A number
of his important books have already been translated. He has visited the United
States of America several times and was made an honorary member of the Society
of Biblical Literature. In 1977 he was honored by the British Academy with the
Burkitt Medal for Biblical Studies.
For almost twenty-five years Professor Westermann was engaged in a commentary
on the book of Genesis.
The public service is being transformed as reform is occurring at all levels
of government both here and abroad. Although some of the changes
address narrow, specific issues, increasingly more radical innovations are
commonplace. A key example is the effort to modify or eliminate the
distinguishing characteristic of the merit system: safeguarding the independence
of the public servant corps from political influence.

This short book is my answer to their question. This book will reference
modern research, but it is not a book for scholars. This book will contain
information that will benefit English teachers, but it is not a book for
teachers. This is a book for you, the student. In my reading, much of the literature concerning language acquisition theory
and research are designed for teachers.
Sustainable tourism, sustainable development through tourism, principles of sustainable
development in tourism and tourism development in terms of sustainable tourism, in the
literature often treated as names for the same phenomenon, are becoming increasingly
interesting for scholars and practicians of tourism from various countries.
Stochastic volatility (SV) is the main concept used in the fields of financial
economics and mathematical finance to deal with time-varying volatility in
financial markets. In this book I bring together some of the main papers which
have influenced the field of the econometrics of stochastic volatility with the hope
that this will allow students and scholars to place this literature in a wider
The resource-based view of the firm (RBV) is one of the latest strategic management concepts to be enthusiastically em-braced by marketing scholars. This paper argues that the RBV holds much promise as a framework for understanding stra-tegic marketing issues but cautions that, before it is adopted, it needs to be fully understood. Consequently, the paper charts the development of the RBV from its origins in early economic models of imperfect competition, through the work of evolutionary economists to the contributions of strategy and marketing scholars over the past two decades.
My Father, John Hunter West, was a well known Oriental and Sanskrit scholar, and his name is still of weight with those who are interested in such matters. He it was who first after Sir William Jones called attention to the great value of early Persian literature, and his translations from the Hafiz and from Ferideddin Atar have earned the warmest commendations from the Baron von Hammer-Purgstall, of Vienna, and other distinguished Continental critics.
