    “An extraordinary discovery has recently shaken the foundations of Cosmology and Particle Physics, sparking a scientific revolution that has profoundly modified our understanding of our Universe and that is still far from over. Pioneering astronomers in the 1920s and 1930s had already noticed suspicious anomalies in the motion of celestial bodies in distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies, but it wasn't until the late 20th century that the scientific community was confronted with an astonishing conclusion: the Universe is filled with an unknown, elusive substance that is fundamentally different from anything we have ever seen with our telescopes or measured in our laboratories. It is called dark matter, and it constitutes one of the most pressing challenges of modern science. In this book, aimed at the general reader with an interest in science, the author illustrates in non-technical terms, borrowing concepts and ideas from other branches of art and literature, the far-reaching implications of this discovery. It has led to a worldwide race to identify the nature of this mysterious form of matter. We may be about to witness a pivotal paradigm shift in Physics, as we set out to test the existence of dark matter particles with a wide array of experiments, including the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, as well as with a new generation of Astroparticle experiments underground and in space.”

    « Dwight F. Reynolds brings together a collection of essays by leading international scholars to provide a comprehensive and accessible survey of modern Arab culture, from the early nineteenth to the twenty-first century. The chapters survey key issues necessary to any understanding of the modern Arab World: the role of the various forms of the Arabic language in modern culture and identity; the remarkable intellectual transformation undergone during the 'Nahda' or 'Arab Renaissance' of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the significant role played by ethnic and religious minorities, and the role of law and constitutions. Other chapters on poetry, narrative, theatre, cinema and television, art, architecture, humour, folklore, and food offer fresh perspectives and correct negative stereotypes that emerge from viewing Arab culture primarily through the lens of politics, terrorism, religion, and economics. »

    «One hundred years ago, Cecil B. DeMille made the first feature film ever shot in Hollywood and went on to become the most commercially successful producer-director in history. Between 1913 and 1956, he made seventy features, both silent and sound films. DeMille told his cinematic tales with painterly, extravagant images, the parting of the Red Sea in The Ten Commandments was only one of these. His films were distinguished by their epic scale, and by his cinematic showmanship. This lavish volume opens the Cecil B. DeMille Archives, presenting storyboard art, concept paintings, and an array of photographic imagery. Historian Mark A. Vieira writes an illuminating text to accompany these scenes. Cecilia de Mille Presley relates her grandfather's thoughts on his various films, and recalls her visits to his sets, including the Egyptian expedition to film The Ten Commandments. »

    „Jean-Henri Fabre, dessen Erinnerungen eines Insektenforschers für den Literaturnobelpreis nominiert waren und der mit diesem Werk unzählige Schriftsteller beeinflusste, war Zeit seines Lebens der ebenso faszinierenden wie geheimnisvollen Welt der Pilze verfallen. Von 1872 an aquarellierte er insgesamt fast 700 naturwissenschaftlich genaue und wohlkomponierte Pilzstudien, vornehmlich, um den Reichtum der Pilzwelt für die Nachwelt zu erhalten, da er zu Recht, wie wir heute wissen fürchtete, dass viele Arten aussterben würden. Dieser prächtige Folioband versammelt erstmals alle erhaltenen Pilz- Aquarelle Fabres und beweist eindrucksvoll, dass dem Naturforscher Jean-Henri Fabre neben seinem herausragenden Rang in der Literaturauch ein besonderer Platz in der Kunstgeschichte gebührt.“

    “Over the course of the last thirty years, the investigation of objects at the nano scale has rocketed. Nanoscale scientific research has not only powerfully affected the amount and orientation of knowledge, it has perhaps even more significantly redirected the ways in which much research work is carried out, changed scientists' methodology and reasoning processes, and influenced aspects of the structure of career trajectory and the functioning of scientific disciplines. This book identifies key historical moments and episodes in the birth and evolution of nanoscience, discusses the novel repertory of epistemological concerns of practitioners, and signals sociological propensities. It invites the question: to what extent does nanoscale scientific research constitute a kind of 'scientific revolution'? ”
