Encyclopedia of Addictions [2 volumes]

Buy

This two volume set contains frank and factual information about symptoms, causes, effects, prevention, and treatment of substance abuse—alcohol, nicotine, and drugs—and of behavioral addictions such as eating disorders, pathological gambling, and compulsive sexual activity. Including the most up-to-date research, the addiction entries are based largely on criteria established by the American Psychiatric Association in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.Tracing the history of the debate over whether addiction is a choice or a disease, the volumes explain how genetic and biological findings support the disease concept while lifestyle choices affect the course of the disease. Graphics and discussions of the brain structures that support this self-reinforcing mechanism illustrate why treatments that obstruct the pathway are showing such promise.

Between Deontology and Justice: Chinese and Western Perspectives (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Chinese Philosophy)
Between Deontology and Justice: Chinese and Western Perspectives (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Chinese Philosophy)

In China, political philosophy is still a comparatively new academic discipline. While there is no such phrase as “political philosophy” in ancient Chinese texts, there are elements within them that could be considered part of that field. Central questions of Chinese ancient political philosophy include the legitimacy of...

C++: No Experience Required
C++: No Experience Required
This is how the idea of developing multimedia programs was born. Readers shouldn’t have to learn boring input/output stuff just to see what happens with their programs. If I could provide them with a suitable class library, they could learn how to manipulate these objects to produce sounds, pictures, and animations.

The resulting

Dynamic-Mismatch Mapping for Digitally-Assisted DACs (Analog Circuits and Signal Processing)
Dynamic-Mismatch Mapping for Digitally-Assisted DACs (Analog Circuits and Signal Processing)

This book describes a novel digital calibration technique called dynamic-mismatch mapping (DMM) to improve the performance of digital to analog converters (DACs).  Compared to other techniques, the DMM technique has the advantage of calibrating all mismatch errors without any noise penalty, which is particularly useful in order to meet...
