Animal Visions: Posthumanist Dream Writing (Palgrave Studies in Animals and Literature)
Animal Visions: Posthumanist Dream Writing (Palgrave Studies in Animals and Literature)
Animal Visions considers how literature responds to the harms of anthropocentricism, working with Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights (1847) and various adaptations of this canonistic novel to show how posthumanist dream writing unsettles the privileging of the human species over other species. Two feminist...

The Scandal of the Century: And Other Writings
The Scandal of the Century: And Other Writings
“The articles and columns in The Scandal of the Century demonstrate that his forthright, lightly ironical voice just seemed to be there, right from the start . . . He’s among those rare great fiction writers whose ancillary work is almost always worth finding . . . He had a way of connecting the souls in all his...
Topographical Tools for Filtering and Segmentation 1: Watersheds on Node- or Edge-weighted Graphs (Digital Signal and Image Processing)
Topographical Tools for Filtering and Segmentation 1: Watersheds on Node- or Edge-weighted Graphs (Digital Signal and Image Processing)

Mathematical morphology has developed a powerful methodology for segmenting images, based on connected filters and watersheds. We have chosen the abstract framework of node- or edge-weighted graphs for an extensive mathematical and algorithmic description of these tools.

Volume 1 is devoted to watersheds. The

Visual Saliency: From Pixel-Level to Object-Level Analysis
Visual Saliency: From Pixel-Level to Object-Level Analysis
This book provides an introduction to recent advances in theory, algorithms and application of Boolean map distance for image processing. Applications include modeling what humans find salient or prominent in an image, and then using this for guiding smart image cropping, selective image filtering, image segmentation, image matting, etc....
Diesel Heart: An Autobiography
Diesel Heart: An Autobiography
The doctors gathered around, passing the stethoscope from hand to hand, taking turns listening to my chest. Finally, the lead doctor said, "Now, that's what I call a heartbeat!" I snapped, "Whaddaya mean?"

"It's like hearing a diesel engine inside a Mustang body," he said.

The Syrian Social Nationalist Party: Its Ideology and History
The Syrian Social Nationalist Party: Its Ideology and History
The emergence of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) during the Syrian civil war as a military and political force has elicited interest and debate among observers and analysts of the Middle East. Long considered as irrevocably marginalized by decades of prohibition and persecution, the SSNP has over the last decade re-asserted itself as...
Nervous States: Democracy and the Decline of Reason
Nervous States: Democracy and the Decline of Reason

In this age of intense political conflict, we sense objective fact is growing less important. Experts are attacked as partisan, statistics and scientific findings are decried as propaganda, and public debate devolves into personal assaults. How did we get here, and what can we do about it?

In this...
