The increasing use of powder metallurgy techniques to make an almost infinite variety of materials and products places greater emphasis on utilization of sophisticated experimental techniques. Usually research and development efforts initiate the use of newly developed equipment and analytical procedures. Indeed, the contents of this book are strongly linked to research endeavors, in both the academic and industrials worlds. However, this volume can serve a much needed function in industrial applied powder metallurgy. Although many researchÂ ers will find the contents of great value, the technical personnel more involved with production, quality control, customer services and product design now have at their dispoÂ sal a means to learn about the potential uses of several very important techniques. With today's "knowledge explosion" the present set of papers greatly facilitates the comprehension and adoption of new procedures. If powder metallurgy is to continue its rapid rate of growth in virtually all segments of industry, then the transition of modern equipment and procedures from tools of research and development laboratories to everyday plant operations and applications must be hastened. The editors hope that this volume aids in this process, as well as assisting students and researchers by providing a ready source of up-to-date useful information.
<i>The Virtual Self</i> is an engaging and exciting text that addresses issues relating to our rapidly changing society, social structure, and communication needs. In doing so, it addresses major issues in sociology that inform virtually all of a student’s course work.<br /> <ul> <li>Introduces students to concepts of the self and society in an age of rapid technology and high speed communication</li> <li>Examines the relationship between everyday life and social structure in key domains of communication, personality, work/family, leisure and entertainment, and economics</li> <li>Written in a lively, engaging style for readers without a sociological background</li> </ul>
Best-selling author Thomas A. Mauet--renowned for his skills as a writer and litigator--breaks the trial process down into its critical components for better and quicker student comprehension. His clear, engaging writing features excellent examples that illustrate strategies for opening statements, jury selection, direct- and cross-examination, exhibits, objections, and more. The Federal Rules of Evidence are given in the appendix for easy reference.
The Ninth Edition combines the most effective chapters from Trial Techniques (trial process, the psychology of persuasion, trial preparation and strategy, bench trials) with those from Trials (jury selection, opening statements and closing arguments, direct and cross-examinations).An updated, modern design follows a revised, thoughtful organization. Examples in the Ninth Edition reflect the three principal types of trials: tort, criminal, and commercial. A flexible new approach allows students to either read all the examples or, if they prefer, focus on the plaintiff's and defendant's side of a particular kind of case. Online access has been provided to an edited video of a jury trial, formerly only available to users of Trials.
Thoroughly updated, the revised Ninth Edition presents:
