Politicizing Science
In this book leading scientists share their experiences and observations of developing and testing hypotheses, offering insights on the dangers of manipulating science for political gain. It describes how politicization--whether by misapplication, overextension, or outright manipulation of the scientific record to advance particular policy agendas--imposes expenditures of money, missed opportunities, and burdens on the economy.

Colloid Science
Colloidal systems are important across a range of industries, such as the food, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, cosmetics, polymer, paint and oil industries, and form the basis of a wide range of products (eg cosmetics & toiletries, processed foodstuffs and photographic film). A detailed understanding of their formation, control and application is required in those industries, yet many new graduate or postgraduate chemists or chemical engineers have little or no direct experience of colloids. This book is based on lectures given at the highly successful Bristol Colloid Centre Spring School, designed to provide a thorough introduction to colloid science for industrial chemists, technologists and engineers. The course has attracted a wide range of industrialists from major companies with over 1000 delegates attending in all. This book brings together the BCC Spring School lectures and presents them in a coherent and logical text on practical colloid science. The authors are well known internationally in their respective fields and the book will be uniquely focussed on providing the reader with a detailed understanding of the practical application of colloid science.

Action Science
Put student engagement on the fast-track Think action sports like skateboarding and BMX have nothing to do with physical science? Think again, especially as they relate to fundamental physics concepts--not to mention the problem solving required. What's more, because kids will want to, observing action sports is the perfect vehicle for promoting self-directed and collaborative learning . . . with Action Science as your driver's manual. Through a combination of book and video, Robertson provides all the materials you'll need to get started, with the NGSS very much in full view. You'll find: Detailed instructional methods Hands-on classroom activities and experiments Captivating video via QR codes

Actuarial Science
Since actuarial education was introduced into China in the 1980s, Chinese scholars have paid greater attention to the theoretical research of actuarial science. Professors and industry experts from well-known universities in China recently worked together on the project “Insurance Information Processing and Actuarial Mathematics Theory and Methodology”, which was supported by the Chinese government. Summarizing what they achieved, this volume provides a study of some basic problems of actuarial science, including risk models, risk evaluation and analysis, and premium principles. The contributions cover some new applications of probability and statistics, fuzzy mathematics and financial economics to the field of actuarial practices. Discussions on the new insurance market in China are also presented. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: Risk Models and Ruin Theory (1,049 KB). Contents: Risk Models and Ruin Theory; Compound Risk Models and Copula Decomposition; Comonotonically Additive Premium Principles and Some Related Topics; Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation and Fuzzy Information Processing for Risks; Application of Fuzzy Mathematics to Actuarial Science; Some Applications of Financial Economics to Insurance; Exploring on the Risk Profile of China Insurance for Setting Appropriate Solvency Capital Requirement. Readership: Graduate students and professionals in actuarial science and statistics.

Secret Science
Charting the ethical trajectory and culture of military science from its development in 1915 in response to Germany's first use of chemical weapons in WW1 to the ongoing attempts by the international community to ban these weapons, Secret Science offers a comprehensive history of chemical and biological weapons research by former Allied powers.

Regionalizing Science
Victorian England, as is well known, produced an enormous amount of scientific endeavour, but what has previously been overlooked is the important role of geography on these developments. Naylor seeks to rectify this imbalance by presenting a historical geography of regional science. Taking an in-depth look at the county of Cornwall, questions on how science affected provincial Victorian society, how it changed people's relationship with the landscape and how it shaped society are applied to the Cornish case study, allowing a depth and texture of analysis denied to more general scientific overviews of the period. Winner of the Marc-Auguste Pictet Prize, 2010
