This remarkable volume presents a panorama of geographical writings from Hesiod to Humboldt, from the beginnings of geographical thought in the Western world to the emergence of topical specialization. It includes a wealth of material from non-Western sources, particularly Moslem and Chinese, that has not been collected before. The selections are arranged chronologically, and contain geographical theory, descriptions of terrestrial phenomena by early observers, and excerpts from major voyages of discovery. Some are obvious classics: Socrates on the nature of the Earth, Ezekiel’s des

Examining college and university curricula, this annotated bibliography cites over 300 articles, books, and other works that document the impact of multiculturalism on higher education during the 1980s and 1990s. Included are writings that address change in both the traditional disciplines and the interdisciplinary fields of women’s studies, African American studies, and ethnic studies, with emphasis on other controversial works that focus on integrating the emerging scholarship into core curricula and on the evolution and current status of that scholarship.After an introduction to mult

With the proliferation of computer languages and dialects, it is important to create tools to aid in the construction of source-to-source translators. By allowing users to make use of software (or data) written for another system, these tools form an important component in the quest for software reusability. After discussing the theoretical and practical issues of attribute grammar inversion, this book demonstrates how the technique can be used to build source-to-source translators. This is done by first identifying a common canonical form in which to represent the various source languages and

Gathered together in this book are the fundamental texts of the great classical period in modern logic. A complete translation of Gottlob Frege’s Begriffsschrift--which opened a great epoch in the history of logic by fully presenting propositional calculus and quantification theory--begins the volume. The texts that follow depict the emergence of set theory and foundations of mathematics, two new fields on the borders of logic, mathematics, and philosophy. Essays trace the trends that led to Principia mathematica, the appearance of modern paradoxes, and topics including proof theory, the
