tro improvviso con una certa signora, l� sul ponte dello sbarco, sarebbe stata una cosa molto imbarazzante.Il battello appoggi� adagio adagio, scricchiol� contro i pali e la folla cominci� ad incontrarsi sul ponticello mobile. Quasi sospinto da essa e dai facchini che trasportavano i bagagli, il commendatore Massimo Bagliani si trov�, non sapeva ben dire in che modo, all'ombra d'una robinia con due mani nelle mani, davanti a un ometto vestito di grigio, che aveva lasciata crescere una barbetta crespa sopra una faccia di terra cotta, in cui brillavano due occhi neri, la faccia bruna di can barbino dell'unico e invariabile suo amico Cresti. E questi, dopo aver palpata e allacciata colle braccia la rotondit� d'una discreta pancia che dodici anni prima non esisteva ancora, si arrampic� sull'amico colossale e volle baciarlo e farsi baciare: tutto questo in silenzio, s'intende, come � bene di fare quando si avrebbero troppe cose a dire.

Publisher: Macmillan Higher Education
Global warming. Renewable energy. Hazardous waste. Air Pollution. These and other environmental topics are being discussed and debated more vigorously than ever. Colin Baird and Michael Cann's Environmental Chemistry is the only textbook that explores the chemical processes and properties underlying these crucial issues at an accessible, introductory level. With authoritative coverage that balances soil, water, and air chemistry, the new edition again focuses on the environmental impacts of chemical production and experimentation, offering additional "green chemistry" sections and new case studies, plus updated coverage of energy production (especially biofuels), the generation and disposal of CO2, and innovative ways to combat climate change.

The Laser Inventor
Author: Theodore H. Maiman
In these engaging memoirs of a maverick, Theodore H. Maiman describes the life events leading to his invention of the laser in 1960. Maiman succeeded using his expertise in physics and engineering along with an ingenious and elegant design not anticipated by others. His pink ruby laser produced mankind’s first-ever coherent light and has provided transformational technology for commerce, industry, telecom, the Internet, medicine, and all the sciences. Maiman also chronicles the resistance from his employer and the ongoing intrigue by competing researchers in industry and academia seeking to diminish his contribution in inventing the first laser. This work will appeal to a wide readership, from physicists and engineers through science enthusiasts to general readers. The volume includes extensive photos and documentary materials related to Maiman’s life and accomplishments never before published. "No one beat Maiman to the laser. How important is the laser? How important are all lasers? That is how important we have to regard Maiman’s contribution.He and the laser changed all of our lives, everyone’s!"Dr. Nick Holonyak, Jr., Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics, University of Illinois at Champaigne-Urbana, and inventor of the light-emitting diode (LED) and co-inventor of the transistor laser "More than five decades later, we can safely conclude that Theodore Maiman's groundbreaking discovery changed the world. Our modern life just as scientific research would be quite different without the laser."Dr. Ferenc Krausz, Director, Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Garching, Germany, and Professor of Physics, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich, and pioneer in attosecond lasers and attophysics "Maiman had the stroke of genius needed to take a different approach [from his competitors]. The sheer elegance and simplicity of his design belies the intellectual achievement it represents. If his invention seems obvious to some today, it was far from obvious in 1960."Jeff Hecht, authoritative science writer on the historical development of the laser, author of books on lasers and fiber optics

The Homeric Gods
Author: Walter Friedrich Otto
Publisher: Mimesis Edizioni
In many respects, this book is considered to be the best guide ever written on Homeric religion. The analysis by W. F. Otto, while being very careful in terms of interpretation, denotes an open consonance of the author with the spirit - sometimes brutal and, for our mentality, immoral - of Greek polytheism. A thrilling and amazing journey to Olympus.This is a new edition of the Pantheon Books (New York) 1952 publication.
