Roland Barthes (1915-1980) was a major French writer, literary theorist and critic of French culture and society. His classic works include Mythologies and Camera Lucida. Criticism and Truth is a brilliant discussion of the language of literary criticism and a key work in the Barthes canon. It is a cultural, linguistic and intellectual challenge to those who believe in the clarity, flexibility and neutrality of language, couched in Barthes' own inimitable and provocative style. Translated and Edited by Katrine Pilcher Keuneman Introduced by Philip Thody

The book presents new effective digital algorithms for processing audio and tonal signals characterized by high natural redundancy. The redundancy is fully preserved in headers of compressed audio frames in MPEG-1 Layer 2 format. Extensive computer modeling proved that it is possible to detect and correct all catastrophic errors in three fields of a frame header. It was suggested that a Hamming error detection code with parity bits be used on the encoder end and transmitted over the existing low-speed channel to the decoder. By correcting errors in frame headers one can significantly reduce requirements to the signal-to-noise ratio of satellite digital channels used for radio or TV audio broadcasting.Strong correlation between digital samples of an audio signal presented in the non-linear PCM format makes detectable errors in the most significant bits of sample codes perceived as �crackling�. To make sure that no double threshold excess occurs (i.e. no two disturbances of opposite signs exceed the threshold values set for the first signal derivative), the distorted sample is replaced with the previous one.The notion of interval "spectrum" is introduced for intervals between successive points where digital samples change sign. Knowing the sign bit of the PCM code, one can roughly estimate the width of the signal�s frequency spectrum and distinguish between music, speech and signaling tones. The book demonstrates feasibility of quick adaptation of sampling rate to the content of broadcast programs.An adaptive speech compression algorithm based on time-domain compression technique is analyzed. By using this algorithm, one can ensure recognition of isolated words with speech compression rate as high as 30 while maintaining acceptable quality of sound.The proposed error correction algorithms are described in detail in the Appendix. As a bonus, the software package implementing those algorithms along with 12 compressed audio files that represent different types of content can be downloaded for free fromhttps://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6ll5nxyga6vrnu/AACsuq8ehSK67adZZoctDD_-a?dl=0.

For nearly a century, Richard John Cunliffe's Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect has served as an invaluable resource for students and scholars of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. As both an English-Homeric dictionary and a concordance, the Lexicon lists and defines in English all instances of Greek words that appear in the two epics. Now, with the inclusion of Cunliffe's “Homeric Proper and Place Names”—a forty-two-page supplement to the Lexicon—this expanded edition will be even more useful to readers of Homer. In his original preface to the supplement, Cunliffe explained that proper and place names had to be excluded from the Lexicon “chiefly on the ground of expense.” Although the Lexicon has enjoyed perennial popularity, scholars have long lamented the absence of “capitalized” name-forms in the Lexicon. By consolidating the two works into one handy single-volume format, this expanded edition fills the only gap in Cunliffe's indispensable reference. In his preface to the expanded edition, James H. Dee explains the benefits of uniting the two dictionaries. In addition, Dee provides a brief list of errata and a helpful key to Cunliffe's system of referencing the poems according to Greek letter.

An essential step in learning and using any language is the acquisition of a working vocabulary. Many methods have been devised to help with this acquisition, all of them stressing the fundamental importance of mastering the words most frequently used. The Owen and Goodspeed word-lists in which Homeric terms are arranged according to frequency of usage, divided into categories according to parts of speech, and presented in an easy-to-use format are particularly helpful.The word-lists are based in part upon Gehring s famed "Index Homericus" and are designed to help the student learn Homeric words in a systematic way, thereby marking the reading of Homer a rewarding and natural experience.

First published in 1903, "Selections from Homer s Iliad" has become a classic Greek textbook. Allen Rogers Benner presents selections from twelve books of the "Iliad" both in Greek and English. Short summaries between books bridge the narrative and aid the student in gaining a comprehensive view of the "Iliad" as a work of literature and art. Invaluable resources include an extensive section of notes on the text, a short Homeric grammar, and a vocabulary and Greek index.In a new foreword, Mark W. Edwards argues for the utility of Benner s text while offering a useful summary of current scholarship on the historical sources of the epic, Greek oral tradition, and Homeric style and diction. Benner s "Iliad" will join Barbour s "Herodotus" and Garrison s "Catullus" as indispensable volumes in classical culture and literature available from the University of Oklahoma Press.

The 'red Macmillan' Iliad in the edition of W. Leaf, which had served since the 1880s, was replaced by this classic two-volume edition of M.M. Willcock. Coverage of twelve books of the Iliad in each volume demands a concise introduction and commentary. The editor also includes, for example, mention of significant aspects of Homeric diction more fully in the early lines of each book, so that the student may begin on any particular line. Although the book is designed for students at sixth form and undergraduates, the tight compass of these books does not prevent the editor engaging in - or referring to - problems of composition or text addressed by more advanced scholars.

The book presents new effective digital algorithms for processing audio and tonal signals characterized by high natural redundancy. The redundancy is fully preserved in headers of compressed audio frames in MPEG-1 Layer 2 format. Extensive computer modeling proved that it is possible to detect and correct all catastrophic errors in three fields of a frame header. It was suggested that a Hamming error detection code with parity bits be used on the encoder end and transmitted over the existing low-speed channel to the decoder. By correcting errors in frame headers one can significantly reduce requirements to the signal-to-noise ratio of satellite digital channels used for radio or TV audio broadcasting.Strong correlation between digital samples of an audio signal presented in the non-linear PCM format makes detectable errors in the most significant bits of sample codes perceived as �crackling�. To make sure that no double threshold excess occurs (i.e. no two disturbances of opposite signs exceed the threshold values set for the first signal derivative), the distorted sample is replaced with the previous one.The notion of interval "spectrum" is introduced for intervals between successive points where digital samples change sign. Knowing the sign bit of the PCM code, one can roughly estimate the width of the signal�s frequency spectrum and distinguish between music, speech and signaling tones. The book demonstrates feasibility of quick adaptation of sampling rate to the content of broadcast programs.An adaptive speech compression algorithm based on time-domain compression technique is analyzed. By using this algorithm, one can ensure recognition of isolated words with speech compression rate as high as 30 while maintaining acceptable quality of sound.The proposed error correction algorithms are described in detail in the Appendix.

The book presents new effective digital algorithms for processing audio and tonal signals characterized by high natural redundancy. The redundancy is fully preserved in headers of compressed audio frames in MPEG-1 Layer 2 format. Extensive computer modeling proved that it is possible to detect and correct all catastrophic errors in three fields of a frame header. It was suggested that a Hamming error detection code with parity bits be used on the encoder end and transmitted over the existing low-speed channel to the decoder. By correcting errors in frame headers one can significantly reduce requirements to the signal-to-noise ratio of satellite digital channels used for radio or TV audio broadcasting.Strong correlation between digital samples of an audio signal presented in the non-linear PCM format makes detectable errors in the most significant bits of sample codes perceived as �crackling�. To make sure that no double threshold excess occurs (i.e. no two disturbances of opposite signs exceed the threshold values set for the first signal derivative), the distorted sample is replaced with the previous one.The notion of interval "spectrum" is introduced for intervals between successive points where digital samples change sign. Knowing the sign bit of the PCM code, one can roughly estimate the width of the signal�s frequency spectrum and distinguish between music, speech and signaling tones. The book demonstrates feasibility of quick adaptation of sampling rate to the content of broadcast programs.An adaptive speech compression algorithm based on time-domain compression technique is analyzed. By using this algorithm, one can ensure recognition of isolated words with speech compression rate as high as 30 while maintaining acceptable quality of sound.The proposed error correction algorithms are described in detail in the Appendix. As a bonus, the software package implementing those algorithms along with 12 compressed audio files that represent different types of content can be downloaded for free fromhttps://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6ll5nxyga6vrnu/AACsuq8ehSK67adZZoctDD_-a?dl=0. The software allows simulating introducing, detection and correction of three types of catastrophic errors in the headers of compressed sound frames in MPEG-1 Layer-2 format.This book is addressed to researchers, practicing engineers and graduate students interested in adaptive digital processing of telecommunication signals with natural redundancy.

A gripping narrative that brings to life a legendary moment in American history: the birth, life, and death of the Black Power movement With the rallying cry of "Black Power " in 1966, a group of black activists, including Stokely Carmichael and Huey P. Newton, turned their backs on Martin Luther King's pacifism and, building on Malcolm X's legacy, pioneered a radical new approach to the fight for equality. "Waiting 'Til the Midnight Hour" is a history of the Black Power movement, that storied group of men and women who would become American icons of the struggle for racial equality. Peniel E. Joseph traces the history of the men and women of the movement--many of them famous or infamous, others forgotten. "Waiting 'Til the Midnight Hour" begins in Harlem in the 1950s, where, despite the Cold War's hostile climate, black writers, artists, and activists built a new urban militancy that was the movement's earliest incarnation. In a series of character-driven chapters, we witness the rise of Black Power groups such as the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Black Panthers, and with them, on both coasts of the country, a fundamental change in the way Americans understood the unfinished business of racial equality and integration. Drawing on original archival research and more than sixty original oral histories, this narrative history vividly invokes the way in which Black Power redefined black identity and culture and in the process redrew the landscape of American

Marthe Cohn was in her late teens when Hitler was rising to power. Living across the German border in Alsace-Lorraine, her family began taking in Jews who were fleeing the Nazis, as well as the Jewish children being sent away by terrified parents. Soon her own homeland was under Nazi rule, and she and her parents, brothers, and sisters were forced to live the restricted lives of all Jews. As the Nazi occupation of France escalated along with the war, Marthe’s sister was arrested and eventually sent to Auschwitz, and the rest of her family was forced to flee to the south of France. Always a fighter, Marthe joined the French Army.Behind Enemy Lines is Marthe Cohn’s memoir of a time and place that has mesmerized the world for more than half a century. But at its heart it is the tale of an ordinary human being who, under extraordinary circumstances, became the hero her country needed her to be.Recently, at the age of eighty, Marthe Cohn was awarded France’s highest military honor, the Medaille Militaire, a relatively rare medal awarded for outstanding military service and given, in the past, to the likes of Winston Churchill. With this award came official acknowledgment of the heroic exploits of a beautiful young Jewish woman who faced death every day as she sought to help defeat the Nazi empire.When the spotlight was turned on Marthe Cohn, not even her children or grandchildren knew to what extent this modest woman had been involved with the Allies

[A] tale of power, perseverance and passion . . . a great story in the hands of a master storyteller."-- The Wall Street Journal The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra, and The Romanovs returns with another masterpiece of narrative biography, the extraordinary story of an obscure German princess who became one of the most remarkable, powerful, and captivating women in history. Born into a minor noble family, Catherine transformed herself into empress of Russia by sheer determination. For thirty-four years, the government, foreign policy, cultural development, and welfare of the Russian people were in her hands. She dealt with domestic rebellion, foreign wars, and the tidal wave of political change and violence churned up by the French Revolution. Catherine's family, friends, ministers, generals, lovers, and enemies--all are here, vividly brought to life. History offers few stories richer than that of Catherine the Great. In this book, an eternally fascinating woman is returned to life. "[A] compelling portrait not just of a Russian titan, but also of a flesh-and-blood woman."-- Newsweek "An absorbing, satisfying biography."-- Los Angeles Times "Juicy and suspenseful."-- The New York Times Book Review "A great life, indeed, and irresistibly told."--Salon NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times * The Washington Post * USA Today * The Boston Globe * San Francisco Chronicle * Chicago Tribune * Newsweek/ The Daily Beast

This far-ranging and personal collection of recipes emphasizes the importance of sustainable food production in its ingredients, the excitement of cooking with love to nurture the body, and the joy of accepting all of nature's bounty. Davis came to her wide culinary knowledge through growing up in England and eating a diet of "meat and veg," then switching to macrobiotics as a teen. After traveling the world, she landed in Australia, where she has been both a chef and founder of a natural-foods business. No surprise, then, when Davis cooks pungent Garlic Pickled Mushrooms flavored with Japanese tamari and toasted sesame oil, enlivens a stir-fry of rice noodles and sea scallops with cilantro and incendiary Indian lime pickle, then bakes a savory pie filled with roasted pumpkin, creamy sweet potatoes, eggplant, and pecans. Davis's frequent use of ethnic ingredients (particularly Asian) and the seasonal emphasis in her recipes will stimulate some cooks and intimidate others. If you're hesitant, the glorious color photos in this handsome book should tempt you to try the Flourless Orange and Almond Cake or the eggs baked in a nest of farm-fresh spinach. Nourish was originally published in Australia, so recipes are written with a combination of metric and U.S. measurements. Only liquids are measured in cups, making a kitchen scale useful. You will also find some British culinary terms, like bench for countertop, prawn for shrimp, and corn flour for cornstarch. Language aside, less familiar ingredients are described in detail, along with directions for using them. --Dana Jacobi
