The Chain of Chance
Author: Stanisław Lem
Publisher: Northwestern University Press
Written in the style of a detective novel, The Chain of Chance is classic Lem: a combination of action, hard science, and philosophical investigation. An ex-astronaut is hired to look into the death of a wealthy businessman, one of several men to meet a gruesome end after visiting Naples. The authorities suspect a pattern, but neither the police nor a sophisticated computer enlisted for the investigation can crack the case. On a trail leading from Naples to Rome to Paris, the ex-astronaut barely escapes numerous threats on his life. Having set himself up as a potential victim, he realizes that he may now be the target of a deadly conspiracy - and that the conspiracy is not the work of a criminal mind but a manifestation of the laws of nature. The population has numerically exceeded its critical mass; certain patterns have begun to emerge from the chaotic workings of society. As the ex-astronaut unravels the puzzle, he begins to see that some of those patterns can be fatal.

This book focusses on new technologies and multi-method research designs in the field of modern archaeology, which increasingly crosses academic boundaries to investigate past human-environmental relationships and to reconstruct palaeolandscapes. It aims at establishing the concept of Digital Geoarcheology as a novel approach of interdisciplinary collaboration situated at the scientific interface between classical studies, geosciences and computer sciences. Among others, the book includes topics such as geographic information systems, spatiotemporal analysis, remote sensing applications, laser scanning, digital elevation models, geophysical prospecting, data fusion and 3D visualisation, categorized in four major sections. Each section is introduced by a general thematic overview and followed by case studies, which vividly illustrate the broad spectrum of potential applications and new research designs. Mutual fields of work and common technologies are identified and discussed from different scholarly perspectives. By stimulating knowledge transfer and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, Digital Geoarchaeology helps generate valuable synergies and contributes to a better understanding of ancient landscapes along with their forming processes. Chapters 1, 2, 6, 8 and 14 are published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com.

I Am Mine
Author: Mark E Rawden
How do you want to be defined? By your job, your heritage, or your social status? What if you were defined by your family and friends? Would that be an appropriate depiction of who you truly are? Or would you want someone to dig deeper if they want to truly know you? Many people choose to avoid artificial labels and want to be defined by their beliefs. They want their faith to be what they see in the mirror. They want their ideals to be on display for all to see. I Am Mine provides a podium for these people to share their stories of who they are, and how they've obtained this identity. We may not all agree with each other, and these disagreements may turn violent and may never reach a conclusion. But that's simply because so many of us hold our beliefs above all other aspects of our lives. We are our ideals, not our 9-5 jobs. We are our beliefs, not our bank account levels. And while we respect each other's beliefs, and each other's personal testimonies, we know that nothing can touch our own. While some of us may be able to identify with one another, and may even pray together, we are still separate. You are yours. And I Am Mine.
