From the bestselling author of The Sleepwalkers, a book about how the exercise of power is shaped by different concepts of time This groundbreaking book presents new perspectives on how the exercise of power is shaped by different notions of time. Acclaimed historian Christopher Clark draws on four key figures from German history—Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg-Prussia, Frederick the Great, Otto von Bismarck, and Adolf Hitler—to look at history through a temporal lens and ask how historical actors and their regimes embody unique conceptions of time. Elegantly written and boldly innovative, Time and Power reveals the connection between political power and the distinct temporalities of the leaders who wield it.

Joy: Hard to define, easy to identify. While success, financial security, meaning and overall well-being are primary drivers in our lives, at the root of our goals in life is finding joy. Though joy is more than a fleeting, superficial feeling. It can be the sound of your child's laughter or the sense of pride that comes with a major work promotion. It's also the small things, such as biting into a chocolate cupcake or watching your favorite show. Joy can be enormously empowering, liberating and beneficial to your health. For many, joy may be the driving force in life, but they've never had a firm understanding as to why. This special edition from TIME goes inside the power of joy to explain its many effects on your life. Highlights include: Finding joy even in difficult or stressful times, cultivating joyful relationships, from friendships to marriages and families, how pursuing and finding joy can lead to success in many areas of life, joy as a key component to health and wellness, and beyond faith &– the connections of joy to religious life and secular life.

From the best selling author of Art and Physics and The Alphabet Versus the Goddess comes a provocative new book that will change our views of human sexuality and evolution. According to Leonard Shlain there is no clear and compelling explanation for the sudden emergence of glib, big-brained Homo sapiens 150,000 years ago. In his latest book, he proposes an original thesis that variations in female sexuality changed the course of human evolution. Due to the narrowness of her bipedal pelvis and the increasing size of her infant's head, the human female began to experience high childbirth death rates. Natural selection adapted her to this environmental stress by drastically reconfiguring her hormonal cycles. Her estrus with its external signal that she was ovulating disappeared as her menses became the most florid of any mammal and it mysteriously entrained with the periodicity of the moon. These interlocking adaptations led the first women to grasp the concept of a month and make the connection between sex and pregnancy.

Time is the backdrop of historical inquiry, yet it is much more than a featureless setting for events. Different temporalities interact dynamically; sometimes they coexist tensely, sometimes they clash violently. In this innovative volume, editors Dan Edelstein, Stefanos Geroulanos, and Natasha Wheatley challenge how we interpret history by focusing on the nexus of two concepts—“power” and “time”—as they manifest in a wide variety of case studies. Analyzing history, culture, politics, technology, law, art, and science, this engaging book shows how power is constituted through the shaping of temporal regimes in historically specific ways. Power and Time includes seventeen essays on human rights; sovereignty; Islamic, European, Chinese, and Indian history; slavery; capitalism; revolution; the Supreme Court; the Anthropocene; and even the Manson Family. Power and Time will be an agenda-setting volume, highlighting the work of some of the world’s most respected and original contemporary historians and posing fundamental questions for the craft of history.

Undergraduate students in most preliminary courses in international politics are introduced to realist, liberal, and constructivist approaches, supplementing this theoretical introduction with conceptual discussions of the state, international system, and/or decision-making and policy formation. By the end of their college experience, undergraduate IR majors will engage coursework more narrowly focused on an empirical outcome, such as war, economic integration, development, or migration. These advanced courses are directly linked to modern research agendas and graduate level course material, usually with few references to the theoretical paradigms taught in introductory classes. This volume seeks to bridge the gap between what is taught in early undergraduate education and what is created by scholars, uniting abstract theoretical principles with practical contemporary policy and testable empirical questions.

In the last fifteen years or so, scientists have discovered some remarkable new facts about the human brain and mind. The first is that the brain is continually changing and growing new connections. Even more remarkably, these new connections can be influenced simply by thinking in a certain way! In other words, you can change your own brain just by learning to think differently. This has profound implications for changing your life and changing your personality. The second is that psychologists at Harvard and other Universities have recently discovered that the mind actually operates as a kind of time machine, processing information from the future as well as the past. You have a "Future Memory" which gives you access to the future in the same way that "memory" gives you access to the past! This is a truly astonishing discovery. It means that when you decide to change your life, in any way, you can get information from this new future which will show you what to do to make this new future a physical reality in your life. This book describes techniques for using these new discoveries to create a new life for yourself. This information is really the "secret of success" which successful men and women have spontaneously discovered and which science has now proven. "Mind, Time and Power!" describes a new psychology for the 21st century, based on the work of Albert Einstein and incorporating these newest discoveries. This new model of consciousness allows us to do things which would be impossible with the current psychological model. We can change our past, develop new talents and abilities and attract our goals and dreams seemingly like magic. As Anthony explains in "Mind, Time and Power!," these new discoveries in cognitive psychology show not only how the law of attraction works but also how each of us can develop it.

The Mighty Child offers an existentialist approach to the theorization and criticism of children’s literature, nuancing the academic claim that children’s literature, specifically defined as ‘didactic’, alienates childhood from adulthood and disempowers its implied child reader. This volume recentres the theoretical debate around the constructions of time and power which characterize conceptions of childhood and adulthood in children’s literature. The ‘hidden’, didactic adult of children’s literature, this volume argues, is not solely the dictatorial planner of the child’s future, but also a disempowered entity, yearning for unpredictability in the semi-educational, semi-aesthetic endeavor of the children’s book. Leaning on current work in the field of children’s literature theory, on French phenomenological existentialism, and on the philosophy and sociology of childhood, The Mighty Child is addressed to contemporary theorists and critics of children’s literature.

A number of experiments are described whose purpose was to determine whether peaks in power spectrums of time series of solar indices reflect a tendency for equidistant separation in longitude of solar active regions or are produced by the analysis technique. From comparisons of power spectrums of artificial time series with the spectrum of a solar plage index it is clear that there is no appreciable tendency for equidistant spacing of active regions.

Behavioral Intervals in Embedded Software introduces a comprehensive approach to timing, power, and communication analysis of embedded software processes. Embedded software timing, power and communication are typically not unique but occur in intervals which result from data dependent behavior, environment timing and target system properties. In system design, these intervals are used in many ways. In some cases, only the worst case is of interest, e.g. for single processor schedulability analysis, in another context both best and worst cases are relevant, such as for multiprocessor scheduling. In all these cases, these behavioral intervals of the individual software processes are fundamental data needed to analyze system behavior. With growing importance of embedded software, formal analysis of behavioral intervals has met increasing interest. Major contributions were the introduction of implicit path enumeration and the inclusion of cache analysis. While all approaches are conservative, i.e. all possible timing behavior (or communication, power consumption) is included in the resulting intervals, the main differences are in the architecture features that are covered by the hardware model and the width of the conservative interval. The closer this interval to the real timing bounds, the higher is the practical use of formal analysis. The current analysis techniques leverage on previous work in compiler technology by using basic blocks as elementary units for architecture modeling and path analysis. The work presented here opens a new direction moving from basic block based analysis to an analysis based on larger program segments with a single execution path. Such program segments frequently extend over many basic blocks, in particular in embedded system applications. The approach combines the generality and accuracy of formal analysis with the modeling precision of cycle true simulation without compromising formal completeness. The results show that with this combination of tracing and formal analysis both higher precision than previous approaches leading to tighter and more realistic intervals can be obtained and easier adaptation due to the use of standard off-the-shelf cache simulators, cycle-true processor models or evaluation boards is possible. Behavioral Intervals in Embedded Software will be a useful reference for academics as well as research scientists who are active in the field of Design Automation and Embedded Systems.
