Story Merchant Books presents the debut novel Interrogator’s Notebook from prize-winning author and blogger Martin Ott. A former U.S. Army interrogator, Martin Ott uses his real-world experience and meticulous research in creating the character of Norman Kross, a master interrogator skilled at unlocking others’ secrets but blind to the truth of his relationship with his wife, sons, father and friends.In the novel, Norman Kross is a career interrogator who has worked covertly in some of the most dangerous places in the world. It’s taken its toll, though. He returns to his Los Angeles home, contemplating retirement and coming to terms with his past in his Interrogator’s Notebook.Floundering as a teacher, Norman agrees to take on one last assignment, to interrogate the character actor George Stark who may be responsible for the death of a director’s daughter. Armed with cunning, deceit and a deadly past, the actor poses an escalating challenge, and a terrifying threat to everything Norman has ever cared about. For the author, the heated debate surrounding enhanced interrogation techniques and the role of the interrogator in protecting our national interests provides the backdrop to this crossover literary/suspense novel. But it is the personal life of a man pushed to the brink of his and societal moralities, and the choices he makes that is at the heart of this story.Find out more at www.interrogatorsnotebook.com.

Numerical Methods of Statistics
 
by
John F. Monahan

This book explains how computer software is designed to perform the tasks required for sophisticated statistical analysis. For statisticians, it examines the nitty-gritty computational problems behind statistical methods. For mathematicians and computer scientists, it looks at the application of mathematical tools to statistical problems. The first half of the book offers a basic background in numerical analysis that emphasizes issues important to statisticians. The next several chapters cover a broad array of statistical tools, such as maximum likelihood and nonlinear regression. The author also treats the application of numerical tools; numerical integration and random number generation are explained in a unified manner reflecting complementary views of Monte Carlo methods. Each chapter contains exercises that range from simple questions to research problems. Most of the examples are accompanied by demonstration and source code available in from the authors Web site. New in this second edition are demonstrations coded in R, as well as new sections on linear programming and the Nelder-Mead search algorithm.

Adriatica Village McKinney Texas (Replica of Supetar, Croatio): A Story to Tell

  10/02/2012       Djiraika      0 Comments

Introduction One day in 2007, I was riding around McKinney looking at the beautiful neighborhoods and came upon Adriatic Village under construction, It didnt look liked much, but it look different like cobblestone Streets and slated roofs (old European Architecture). I would go back about once a month to see the progressing it was taking. It seem like nothing was being done. I assumed the venture went bankrupted. About a year later I went by and saw they was carving the Dove and erecting the Bell Tower, I became excited and fascinated that they was working on the project again. I would go back about every two weeks to see what was new. It dunned on me, the material was unique and it took special creative people to do the work. So I decided to be patient and enjoy the construction as it moved alone. Adriatica of McKinney is a housing development in Stonebridge Ranch, McKinney, Texas nearing completion at the writing of this book. It is notable for being a partial replica of the town of Supetar, Croatia. I was intrigued and researched the internet on the History of Croatia and was compelled to write a book on the struggle this Country had to go though different Periods though out history to get where they are today. What a story to tell! Croatia, today has become a destination for travelers around the World to come and visit their beaches, sightseeing and nightlife. However, the people are poor, with an average income of $8K per year. But they do enjoy most of the modern conveniences and value relationships. The Society is somewhat closed and the people are suspicious of outsiders. Maybe of what they had to endure and suffer during different periods of their history. The roots of Catholicism run deep in the Slovenian culture. All Americans and the World should visit Adriatica of McKinney and get the feel of a creative people living in harmony, peace and happiness, in a village from a replica of a Town named Supetar, Croatia.

Spaces in Migration: Postcards of a Revolution

  10/02/2012       ftqepps      0 Comments

December 17, 2010 - January 14, 2011. These dates have been fixed as the beginning and completion of a revolution which took the world by surprise, opening up a sudden and peculiar spatial upheaval. Mohamed Bouazizis gesture, setting himself on fire, was an extreme one. Immediately following this act, squares and streets started to fill up, from Tunisia to Tahrir square, to Sanaa, to Tripoli and to Damascus. The revolutions that originated were revolutions against political dictatorships and against dictatorship over peoples lives, against the way poverty was rendered invisible and against unbearable existences. These revolutionary struggles staged an unprecedented capacity for common action based on a logic of spatial takeover. These existences decided to stand up and be counted, taking over streets, squares, Kasbas, medinas, taking up their freedom, the freedom to be, to go, to be noticed at last. They did so forming an uncontainable movement, from Tunis to Cairo, from Maghreb to Mashreq. From Tunisia to Europe. These Arab Revolutions and, the one that sparked in Tunisia in particular, have not followed just one direction in their spatial takeover. They have also managed to fill a series of European spaces with existences and bodies: streets, islands, stations, parks; from Lampedusa to Paris, crossing the sea in an unexpected and sudden capacity to unify two shores and two continents, hence erasing centuries of history, acting on and performing the natural proximity of these shores. Spaces in Migration: Postcards of a Revolution attempts to rearticulate some of the images of what happened starting from December 17, 2010, sketching a necessarily fragmented story, a series of postcards, and piecing together fragments of before- and after- moments, following the spaces in migration of this revolution. Spaces in Migration is a compelling read, which brings together a plethora of voices while making a decisive intervention in debates about migration in the wake of the Tunisian revolution. Voices that sorely need to be heard find space in this book. Deftly combining analysis with rich empirical detail, the authors succeed in highlighting critical dimensions of the revolution as well as key problems of contemporary migration and humanitarian regimes. - Vicki Squire, Associate Professor of International Security, University of Warwick, UK Spaces in Migration is an intellectual eruption - the eruption of the Arab Spring, and the Tunisian Revolution in particular, into the critical study of migration and borders. Combining the very nuanced analyses of the Italian scholar-activist contributors with the transcripts of their interviews with Tunisian migrants and their families, and also with refugees from various African countries encamped in the borderzone between Libya and Tunisia, this book provides a poignant exploration of how the autonomous subjectivity of migrants can radically destabilize the logics of border control. - Nicholas De Genova, co-editor of The Deportation Regime: Sovereignty, Space, and the Freedom of Movement (Duke University Press, 2010)

The Bronze Eagle
 
by
Emmuska Orczy

This is a full and lively account of Napoleons return from his island exile to turn his Old Guard once more into his loyal cadre and wreak havoc on first, established order in France, then on the rest of Europe. We see through the eyes of various people including a British soldier and the young woman he loves, as they are thrown into the turmoil of war. The ending is with Waterloo; I found this a memorable account of the battle and the human cost. Because I am a horse person I will also note the equine cost. Cavalry, gun carriage horses and pack horses all suffered. Leaders rode large horses so as to be better seen and to have a mount with stamina. Wellingtons favourite, bred in Ireland, was called Copenhagen after one of Nelsons naval victories. Napoleons favourite mount was called Marengo after one of Napoleons land battles. The Bronze Eagle is written excellently from a Continental point of view because the author was Hungarian. She is best known for her Scarlet Pimpernel books about the French Revolution. For a more British point of view I recommend reading An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer, who describes how the wealthy of Europe were entertaining at balls in Brussels mere days before Waterloo. There is also A Close Run Thing about a soldier at the battle, by Allan Mallinson.
