Cobra (1986)
Lt. Cobretti (Sylvester Stallone) is a one-man assault team whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom! Director George P. Cosmatos teams up again with Stallone for this thriller, pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer. The trail leads to not one murderer but also an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a "New Order", and killing a witness (Brigitte Nielsen) along the way. Fortunately, her protector is Cobra, a man who delivers vigilante justice like no other!

Assassins (1995)
Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas star as professional killers, for whom life is survival of the ruthless. And the only retirement is in a body bag. Robert Rath (Stallone) is the best in the business, but he wants out. New competition Miguel Bain (Banderas) aims to do the one thing that will clinch the job: murder Rath. And Rath must dodge an assassin's bullets while hunting his current target, a beautiful electronic surveillance expert (Julianne Moore), who may be his most dangerous assignment ever. Now, for Rath to stop killing--and live--he must do the one thing his instinct and training scream not to do--trust the enemy.

Tango and Cash (1989)
Ray Tango And Gabe Cash (Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell) are rival policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them up and they're like oil and water. But frame them for a crime and they're like a match and kerosene. After being found guilty in court and sentenced to do time, the two stage a prison breakout that's a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks - then roar after the shadowy crimelord who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.

The Specialist (1994)
Sharon Stone is May Munro, a beauty with a fatal past. She's sworn death to the mobsters who murdered her parents. To do the job, she recruits ex-CIA explosives expert Ray Quick (Sylvester Stallone). Miami grows white-hot as May lures the killers and Ray detonates them into ashes. But a vicious mob boss (Rod Steiger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic hired gun (James Woods) with a lethal grudge against Quick won't go without a fight. The passion the two avengers share can't hide Ray's ominous question. Is May falling for him... or setting him up, too?

Demolition Man (1993)
The future isn't big enough for the both of them--the 21st century's most dangerous cop and the 21st century's most ruthless criminal. John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) is a no-holds-barred 20th century cop who had been sentenced to cryoprison, a cop known in an earlier century as the Demolition Man. But when psychopathic killer Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) escapes cryoprison during a mandatory parole hearing, only officer Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock) has a plan to stop a criminal rampage from causing havoc in her now-peaceful world: free the one man capable of stopping Phoenix - the Demolition Man himself. Now, two men from another time bring a level of nonstop action long unseen in this future, idyllic world.

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right.

The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable, and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. No one quite knows why. News reports are scary and scientists are concerned. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don't Die — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival.

What kind of man kills his own family? A gripping, tender novel about fathers and sons from the highly acclaimed author 'A restrained tour-de-force, profoundly unsettling, brilliantly executed, and deeply humane' Emily St. John Mandel, on The Followers When Tom was eight years old, his father took a shotgun and shot his family: his wife, his son and baby daughter, before turning the gun on himself. Only Tom survived. He left his tiny, shocked community on the island of Litta and the strained silence of his Uncle Malcolm's house while still a young boy. For twenty years he's tried to escape his past. Until now. Without knowing how to ask, he needs answers - from his uncle, who should have known. From his neighbours, who think his father a decent man who 'just snapped'. From the memories that haunt the wild landscape of the Hebrides. And from the silent ones who know more about what happened - and why - than they have ever dared admit. By turns gripping, beautiful, devastating and tender, Our Fathers is a story about violence and redemption, control and love. With understated compassion and humour, Rebecca Wait gives a voice to the silenced and to the silences between men of few words.

`A travelogue that is refreshingly irreverent and deeply human.' James Naughtie `What makes this book so enjoyable is that the great friendship, affection, and respect that Waite and the Archbishop have for each other really shines throughout each tale.' Library Journal From darkest Africa to the darker and infinitely wetter birthplace of John Knox, from the remote expanse of the Alaska Highway to part of the Antipodes that even Bill Bryson could not reach, Terry Waite takes us on a guided world tour in the company of Dr Robert Runcie. Even an archbishop has little control over wars and missed connections, floods and food poisoning. But this Primate sailed majestically through the most troubled of waters, as his companions (including Chaplain Richard Chartres) baled energetically in his wake. Hilarious and affectionate, Travels with a Primate offers an unashamedly nostalgic return to the 1980s. It is a delightful tribute to enduring friendship.

A. D. Waite
R1,368 Discovery Miles 13 680 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The aims of the book - written by a practising engineer for practising engineers - are to provide an understanding of the basic principles of sonar and, to develop formulae and "rules of thumb" for sonar design and performance analysis. Ashley Waite uses his long experience in the design, trials and performance analysis of sonar systems to provide practical guidance and solutions to problems encountered by sonar engineers and technicians.

The books divides into the following parts:

  • Equipment parameters: the motion of sound in an elastic medium; definitions of sound intensity and source level; the use of projector arrays to increase the source level; the use of hydrophone arrays to improve the signal to noise ratio of a wanted sound.
  • The propagation of sound in the sea and the backgrounds to detection: spreading and absorption losses; propagation modes and simple modelling; noise and reverberation; the sonar equations
  • Practical sonar systems: passive and active sonar systems; passive broadband, narrowband, intercept and communications (as a special case of intercept) sonars; active sonars for the detection of submarines, mines and torpedoes.
Sonar for Practising Engineers, third edition, covers all aspects of sonar systems and has extensive worked examples. No prior knowledge of sonar is assumed and the physical principles and mathematics will be readily understood by engineers, technicians and students of underwater acoustics. New to this edition, are end-of-chapter exercises and solutions for self assessment and training.
Queer Asia - Decolonising and Reimagining Sexuality and Gender (Paperback): Matthew Waites Queer Asia - Decolonising and Reimagining Sexuality and Gender (Paperback)
Matthew Waites; Edited by Jennifer Ung Loh, J. Daniel Luther
R536 Discovery Miles 5 360 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Queer studies is now a rapidly expanding field, as scholars from a variety of disciplines seek to address the long-running marginalisation of queer perspectives and experiences. But there has so far been little effort to unify the study of queer communities outside the West, and much of the current writing views these communities through a narrowly Western lens. Building on the work of the annual Queer Asia conference, which the editors helped to establish, this collection represents the most comprehensive work to date on queer studies in an Asian context. Featuring case studies and original research from across the continent, covering the Middle East, South and East Asia, and Asian diasporas, the collection offers a genuinely pan-Asian perspective which places queer Asian identities and movements in dialogue with each other, rather than within a Western framework. By considering how queerness is imagined within plural Asian experiences and contexts, the contributors show a that re-envisioning of 'queer' through Asian perspectives has the potential to challenge existing discourses and debates in the wider field of contemporary gender, sexuality, and queer studies.
