The Odyssey Of A U-boat Commander

RRP $347.99

Admiral Topp's memoirs reflect the faith, hopes, errors, and transformations in a man's life, indeed those of a whole generation whose understanding of history and ideology were held captive by the myth of power. The terrible annihilation in World War II and, even more so, the unimaginable destructive potential of nuclear weapons, have resulted in a change in the use of power. The author's diaries and journals, along with their contemporary interpretation, illustrate the political dimension of this change. Topp wrote this book to illuminate a segment of twentieth century history which can only be portrayed truthfully by those who themselves have lived and suffered through it. Topp also describes freely the era of the Third Reich. Even today, after long years of occupying positions of leadership, the author feels the burden of historical responsibility. In this sense his book is a statement about the ambivalence of human existence. It provides answers to the question of why a whole generation of Germans followed the mesmerizing siren song of a totalitarian regime, an experience which still looms like a shadow over the living.


Don't Dance In A Small Boat

RRP $0.00

This romantic rouse crosses the Pond from Ireland to America. It's 1985. Rich American Businessman Bradford Thompson is at Dublin's Trinity College to interpret the message of The Book of Kells. When he collides with Mary Grace Clooney, she turnes his world upside down and inside out. A twist of fate? Perhaps. Bradford, enraptured with the young girls's Irish suductiveness, needs to bring Mary Grace to America as his mistress. But Mary Grace has a secret scheme of her own... Has Bradford fallen into her trap? This Dublin game player is blessed with gypsy power, clever allies, and the guidance of her Grandmum Clooney, who spouts Irish wit and Irish warnings. When Mary Grace threatens Bradford's world, the game turns vicious. These prime players will stop at nothing to triumph. But alas! There can only be one winner left dancing!


Low-power Cmos Wireless Communications

RRP $68.00

Low-Power CMOS Wireless Communications: A Wideband CDMA System Design focuses on the issues behind the development of a high-bandwidth, silicon complementary metal-oxide silicon (CMOS) low-power transceiver system for mobile RF wireless data communications. In the design of any RF communications system, three distinct factors must be considered: the propagation environment in question, the multiplexing and modulation of user data streams, and the complexity of hardware required to implement the desired link. None of these can be allowed to dominate. Coupling between system design and implementation is the key to simultaneously achieving high bandwidth and low power and is emphasized throughout the book.
The material presented in Low-Power CMOS Wireless Communications: A Wideband CDMA System Design is the result of broadband wireless systems research done at the University of California, Berkeley. The wireless development was motivated by a much larger collaborative effort known as the Infopad Project, which was centered on developing a mobile information terminal for multimedia content - a wireless `network computer'. The desire for mobility, combined with the need to support potentially hundreds of users simultaneously accessing full-motion digital video, demanded a wireless solution that was of far lower power and higher data rate than could be provided by existing systems. That solution is the topic of this book: a case study of not only wireless systems designs, but also the implementation of such a link, down to the analog and digital circuit level.


Three Men In A Boat

RRP $14.95

Jerome's comic masterpiece - and one of the best-known classics of English humor - follows the misadventures of 3 bungling, Victorian-era bachelors who take off on a rowing excursion up the Thames. Their disastrous struggles with camping equipment, meal preparation, and rampant hypochondria trumpet simple truths that still resonate today.
