Have you ever wandered along a street and wondered about its history? What was it like in the past? Has anything of interest happened there? There may be some clues in the street name. This book explores over one-hundred major (and some not so major!) streets in central Newcastle upon Tyne. As well as information about likely origins of street names, there are descriptions of events that took place nearby. Generously illustrated with photographs from Newcastle City Library's Local Studies Collection, some of which have never been published before, each section of the book is arranged so that it can be used as a guide for city walks.
Might we be parts of a divine mind? Could anything like an afterlife make sense? Starting with a Platonic answer to why the world exists, "Immortality Defended" suggests we could well be immortal in all of three separate ways.
Tackles the fundamental questions posed by our very existence,
among them, "why does the cosmos exist?," "is there a divine mind
or God?," and "in what sense might we have afterlives?"

The information systems field has contributed greatly to the rise of the information economy and the information society. Yet, after more than a quarter-century since its formation, it still is plagued by doubts about its identity and legitimacy. "Information Systems: The State of the Field" contains the reflections of leading IS scholars on the nature of the discipline, its core identity and the challenges of creating a strong and legitimate academic enterprise centred on information systems. It includes debates, reflections and commentaries from a group of leading information system scholars, and offers an overview of the state of the field at this time. This book is intended for all who are interested in the nature and direction of the information system field as it enters the 21st century.
"The sociologist Zygmund Bauman has defined a discipline which
is constantly debating its credentials as a "flawed" discipline.
This critique can certainly be applied to the IS discipline. The
editors of this book must be congratulated on collecting together
the principal writings reflecting the nature of the debate to
provide a learned and fascinating account of where the field now
stands and perhaps where it is going. It is essential reading for
any student of IS."
"The struggle for identity, according to Alford North Whitehead
entails a dialectic of "becoming." It evolves from coping with
continuous change, a conflict of perspectives and always asking:
"Who am I?," "Who are we?," "Who are we not?," "What do we inherit
from our past?." In this imaginatively edited volume, King and
Lyytinenrecount information systems' restless pursuit for identity.
Anyone who is affected by the struggles, but more importantly
everyone who wants to join it must read this book."
