With energy issues so much in the news, it is important that students get a clear understanding of how energy is produced and how it affects virtually every aspect of our lives. The multivolume set A Student Guide to Energy does just that, with an accessible introduction to the basic concepts and key topics concerning nonrenewable energy sources, future renewable energy programs, and the importance of achieving a sustainable energy program for future generations. A Student Guide to Energy is divided into five separate volumes. Volume 1 highlights our present dependence on nonrenewable energy sources-oil, gas, coal, and nuclear power. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 look at the renewable energy sources that will play a vital role in our future, including solar energy, hydrogen fuel cells, wind and water power, and geothermal energy. The concluding volume focuses on efforts to develop a global sustainable energy system that encompasses energy efficiency, conservation, and a healthy, cleaner environment.
This book is an important contribution to the philosophy of music. Whereas most books in this field focus on the creation and reproduction of music, Bruce Benson's concern is the phenomenology of music making as an activity. He offers the radical thesis that it is improvisation that is primary in the moment of music making. Succinct and lucid, the book brings together a wide range of musical examples from classical music, jazz, early music and other genres. It offers a rich tapestry incorporating both analytic and continental philosophy, musicology and performance-practice issues. It will be a provocative read for philosophers of art and musicologists and, because it eschews technicality, should appeal to general readers, especially those who perform.
