Between 1890 and 1920 over one-third of the peasants of Mount Lebanon left their villages and traveled to the Americas. This book traces the journeys of these villagers from the ranks of the peasantry into a middle class of their own making.
Inventing Home delves into the stories of these travels, shedding much needed light on the impact of emigration and immigration in the development of modernity. It focuses on a critical period in the social history of Lebanon--the "long peace" between the uprising of 1860 and the beginning of the French mandate in 1920. The book explores in depth the phenomena of return emigration, the questioning and changing of gender roles, and the rise of the middle class. Exploring new areas in the history of Lebanon, Inventing Home asks how new notions of gender, family, and class were articulated and how a local "modernity" was invented in the process.
Akram Khater maps the jagged and uncertain paths that the fellahin from Mount Lebanon carved through time and space in their attempt to control their future and their destinies. His study offers a significant contribution to the literature on the Middle East, as well as a new perspective on women and on gender issues in the context of developing modernity in the region.
Modern Methods in Partial Differential Equations
Upon its initial 1977 publication, this volume made recent accomplishments in its field available to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students of mathematics. Requiring only some familiarity with advanced calculus and rudimentary complex function theory, it covered discoveries of the previous three decades, a particularly fruitful era. Now it remains a permanent, much-cited contribution to the ever-expanding literature on partial differential equations.
Author Martin Schechter chose subjects that will motivate students and introduce them to techniques with wide applicability to problems in partial differential equations as well as other branches of analysis. Uniform in theme and outlook, the text features problems that consider existence, uniqueness, estimates, and regularity of solutions. Topics include existence of solutions, regularity of constant and variable coefficients, the Cauchy problem, properties of solutions, boundary value problems in a half-space, the Dirichlet problem, general domains, and general boundary value problems.

Word Smart, 4th Edition
Knowing which words to use and how to use them is key to communicating accurately and effectively. That’s why more than one million people have used this book to improve their vocabularies.
To find out which words you absolutely need to know, The Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults by analyzing major newspapers and books and focusing on the words that people misunderstand or misuse. We also examined the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently.
All of the entries in Word Smart, 4th Edition are necessary for an impressive vocabulary, and learning and using these words effectively can help you to get better grades, score higher on tests, and communicate more confidently at work.
European Social Law
European Social Law Noreen Burrows and Jane Mair School of Law, University of Glasgow, UK The creation of an EU-wide social policy is firmly on the agenda of the EU institutions in Brussels but turning that goal into a reality has met with many opponents. Some question the impact of a social policy on the competitiveness of Europe with the rest of the world, while others question whether the policy fits with related European policies such as the protection of small and medium-sized enterprises. European Social Law analyses these problems and discusses the methods adopted by Brussels to achieve its aims. The authors concentrate on several distinct areas to map the development of European social law, such as:
* sex discrimination
* workers? rights in the event of a transfer of undertakings
* social policy to date as it operates in the working environment
Within each chapter, the background, substance and interpretation of a particular directive are examined. Implementation of the directive within the UK is then analysed as an example of the problems faced in trying to impose a European policy on an established legal order. This analysis in many cases illustrates the problems that can be caused 151; through poor legislation, inadequate drafting and incomplete implementation - to those governed by the terms of the directive and those that have to enforce it. Also featured, after each chapter, is a list of key questions on the content of the chapter, designed to act as a revision exercise for students studying this broad-ranging subject. With its breadth of coverage and detailed analysis of implementation, European Social Law is essential reading for all students and academics of European law and practitioners specialising in this area.
Analysis on Real and Complex Manifolds
Chapter 1 presents theorems on differentiable functions often used in differential topology, such as the implicit function theorem, Sard's theorem and Whitney's approximation theorem.
The next chapter is an introduction to real and complex manifolds. It contains an exposition of the theorem of Frobenius, the lemmata of Poincare and Grothendieck with applications of Grothendieck's lemma to complex analysis, the imbedding theorem of Whitney and Thom's transversality theorem.
Chapter 3 includes characterizations of linear differentiable operators, due to Peetre and Hormander. The inequalities of Garding and of Friedrichs on elliptic operators are proved and are used to prove the regularity of weak solutions of elliptic equations. The chapter ends with the approximation theorem of Malgrange-Lax and its application to the proof of the Runge theorem on open Riemann surfaces due to Behnke and Stein.Readmore …
