For two years, until his untimely death in 1718, the notorious pirate wreaked havoc on Atlantic coastal shipping. Many tales have been told about the bold deeds of this tall and wild sea rover, but few know about a daring crime that linked Blackbeard with the highest levels of government, a crime that would send two colonies to war and foreshadow the American Revolution. In her page-turning narrative based on a true story, Margaret Hoffman spins a tale of political intrigue, villainy and romance. Her infamous pirate emerges as a man of considerable charm and gallantry who not only becomes the confidant of the governor of North Carolina, but also wins the heart of a beautiful young heiress. Legends and myths about Blackbeard continue three centuries after his death, but the true story is the most incredible of all. With the recent discovery of Blackbeard's sunken ship, 'Queen Anne's Revenge', this book is sure to become as much a treasure as that ill-fated but much sought after shipwreck.
Illegal drug use in the United States is increasing among criminal offenders at an alarming rate. As communities struggle to cope due to a lack of effective drug control programmes, some urban studies have suggested that the offender population is virtually filled by cocaine users - a drug which has been linked with violent behaviour. Drug Control and the Courts is a welcome contribution to this crucial issue. The authors skillfully examine the history, development and current status of drug control programmes as they have impacted on the criminal justice system. They examine current trends - such as a growing awareness that incarceration alone has proved to be an inadequate solution - which suggest a strong need to re-examine the existing linkages between drug abuse treatment services and the courts.

Strategic info for conducting business, products, contacts
Information is a key factor in business today, and data warehousing has become a major activity in the development and management of information systems to support the proper flow of information. Unfortunately, the majority of information systems are based on structured information stored in organizational databases, which means that the company is isolated from the business environment by concentrating on their internal data sources only. It is therefore vital that organizations take advantage of external business information, which can be retrieved from Internet services and mechanically organized within the existing information structures. Such a continuously extending integrated collection of documents and data could facilitate decision-making processes in the organization. Filtering the Web to Feed Data Warehouses discusses areas such as: - how to use data warehouse for filtering Web content - how to retrieve relevant information from diverse sources on the Web - how to handle the time aspect - how to mechanically establish links among data warehouse structures and documents filtered from external sources - how to use collected information to increase corporate knowledge and gives a comprehensive example, illustrating the idea of supplying data warehouses with relevant information filtered from the Web.

Through an examination of the experience of transsexuals, this book
enhances understanding of how gender can and does function in
powerful, complex and subtle ways. The author, who has herself been
surgically reassigned, has conducted extensive interviews with
transsexuals from many walks of life. Her personal experiences,
which inform this book, have given her an access to her subjects
that others would likely be denied. While highlighting how the
gender identity of transsexuals relates to hormonal and surgical
changes in the body as well as to changes in dress, the book
investigates the pressures and motivations to conform to expected
gender roles, and the ways in which these are affected by social,
educational, and professional status. Differences in the
experiences of those who change from male to female and those who
change from female to male are also examined.
This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated
treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts
through mammals. It is designed to provide a readable, coordinated
description of reproductive basics in each group of vertebrates as
well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive
research and our understanding of reproductive events. Whereas each
chapter and each volume is intended to stand alone as a review of
that topic or vertebrate group, respectively, the volumes are
prepared so as to provide a thorough topical treatment across the
vertebrates. Terminology has been standardized across the volumes
to reduce confusion where multiple names exist in the literature,
and a comprehensive glossary of these terms and their alternative
names is provided.

CITIES: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUSTAINABILITY BRANTLEY LIDDLE AND FRED MOAVENZADEH OR at least 4000 years, cities have been centers of cultural, social, technological Fand economic innovation, inventions and their application, and political power. Only in the last 200 years, the industrial era, have urban areas grown so rapidly, and their populations increased so dramatically that their impacts on the natural environ- ment are being felt beyond their immediate geographic surroundings. As the 21" cen- tury dawns, megacities-great and far-reaching concentrations of power and influ- ence-have become centers of the phenomena of globalization and information ex- change. These concentrations of people and activity are placing stress on the natural environment so great that it is beginning to have extensive regional, and even global impacts. However, asconcentrations ofpower-political, economic, andintellectual- these great urban centers share with the ancestral cities of past millennia the resources to consciously shape the future. The management of these megacities (those having populations of over eight million) in their current formative stages so taxing to natural systems,paradoxicallypresents theopportunity torestoresustainableregional and global environments. Environmental problems consequent to urban growth have two sources: pov- erty and affluence. These two conditions often coexist in dramatic contrast within the same city, particularly in developing countries. In terms of environmental impact, poverty-based problems tend to have local effects, while affluence-based problems usually have transboundary and/or global effects.
