For fans of E. L. James, Sylvia Day, J. Kenner and Meredith Wild. Dominated is the second in a sizzling hot erotic romance series, The Enforcers: these men don't play by the rules - they make them. In Drake's shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he's never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline - a woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away. Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn't know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she'll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realises there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust - and submit - to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he'll go to regain her love and forgiveness. For more exciting and steamy romance, read the whole series: Mastered, Dominated, Kept. And don't miss Maya Banks's emotionally seductive Surrender trilogy: Letting Go, Giving In, Taking It All.

This book brings together stories told by men and women. With a play on words sometimes used by feminists in the past, it could have been entitled "His/story and Her/story," in order to convey from the outset a banal, but sometimes overlooked, fact: the contents of stories depend on the voice telling them, and the experience recounted in first person differs according to the gender of the narrator.

This volume is the Proceedings of the Workshop on Analytical and Computational Methods for Convection-Dominated and Singularly Perturbed Problems, which took place in Lozenetz, Bulgaria, 27-31 August 1998. The workshop attracted about 50 participants from 12 countries. The volume includes 13 invited lectures and 19 contributed papers presented at the workshop and thus gives an overview of the latest developments in both the theory and applications of advanced numerical methods to problems having boundary and interior layers. There was an emphasis on experiences from the numerical analysis of such problems and on theoretical developments. The aim of the workshop was to provide an opportunity for scientists from the East and the West, who develop robust methods for singularly perturbed and related problems and also who apply these methods to real-life problems, to discuss recent achievements in this area and to exchange ideas with a view of possible research co-operation.

Religion is often denounced as one of the tools used by patriarchal societies to maintain the status quo, and especially to persuade women to accept subordinate roles. This does not explain, however, the existence of many religious groups in which women are both leaders and the majority of participants. How are these women's religions different from those dominated by men? What can we learn from them about the special ways in which women experience their unique reality? In this fascinating and pathbreaking work--the first comparative study of women's religions--Susan Starr Sered seeks answers to these compelling questions. Looking for common threads linking groups as diverse as the ancestral cults of the Black Caribs of Belize, Korean shamanism, Christian Science, and the Feminist Spirituality movement, Sered finds that motherhood and motherly concerns play a vital role in these female-dominated groups. Nurturing and concern for others are at the center, as are healing arts and ways of dealing with illness and the death of children. Religion not only enables women to find sacred meaning in their daily lives, from the preparation of food to caring for their families, but an offer intense and personal relationships with deities and spirits--often through ecstatic possession trance--as well as opportunities to celebrate and mourn with other women. By examining the shared experiences of women across great cultural divides, Priestess, Mother, Sacred Sister offers a new understanding of the role gender plays in determining how individuals grapple with the ultimate questions of existence. In the process, it not only highlights the profound differences between men and women, but the equally important ways in which we are all alike.

'Eckhard Hein examines the causes and consequences of financialisation. His book is economics as it should always be: it combines reflections, data gathering, empirical analysis, theoretical formalization, and policy recommendations. Hein goes beyond the exuberant behaviour of the banking industry to analyse the global financial crisis and the eurozone crisis, showing, through various variants of a Kaleckian growth model, the macroeconomic consequences of the rising dominance of finance over modern capitalism during the last three decades.' - Marc Lavoie, University of Ottawa, Canada

With a focus on environmentally friendly rice farming, this unique book integrates both ecosystem and human dimensions of ecological restoration to provide strategies to promote sustainable agriculture and rural development. Paddy fields have multiple functions beyond their role of producing rice: They serve as refuge habitats for a range of wildlife that once inhabited floodplain wetlands and contain a number of unique and threatened aquatic species. They also provide various ecosystem services for regional communities such as water retention, erosion control, flood control, fish culture, and educational opportunities. However, rice paddies are threatened worldwide due to the modernization of agriculture and abandonment of farmland caused by depopulation and the aging of rural communities. Therefore, multiple ecological and sociological aspects must be considered in the ecological restoration of paddy fields. This book aims to do so by incorporating various disciplines of natural and social sciences. Strategies for sustainable agriculture are reviewed, including financial incentives for farmers and the use of flagship wildlife species such as the crested ibis (toki) to promote ecological restoration. With the increasing popularity of environmentally friendly rice farming in parts of Asia and the western United States, this book offers model cases for sustainable management of paddy-dominated landscapes.

Numerical experiments, based on linear stability results, are invoked to model the evolution of two-phase vapor-dominated zones within geothermal systems. A reservoir model with all boundaries impermeable to fluid flow and a uniform heat flux at the bottom boundary is used. The results obtained show that different steady-states are accessible along different quasi-static paths from the same initial vapor-dominated steady-state. Thus, the realization of a steady-state with a two-phase vapor-dominated zone overlying a single-phase hot water region can indicate that the geothermal system undergoes a process of slow cooling. A steady-state with a two-phase vapor-dominated zone overlying a single-phase vapor region can be formed either as a result of slow heating or as a result of a reduction in permeability. A steady-state with an upper vapor-dominated part and a lower liquid-dominated part can occur if permeability of the system has been gradually increased.

Following in the footsteps of the earlier editions, hundreds of the most respected scientists and engineers participated in the creation of this new edition, including many Nobel Laureates. The articles are in-depth, yet accessible, and address all of the key areas of physical science--including aeronautics, astronomy, chemistry, communications, computers, earth sciences, electronics, engineering, materials science, mathematics, nuclear technology, physics, power systems, propulsion, and space technology. (Midwest).
Numerical simulation is used to define the rather special conditions under which large-scale vapor-dominated zones can evolve. Given an adequate supply of heat, a vapor-dominated zone can evolve within low-permeability barriers without changes in rock properties or boundary conditions. However, the evolution of the system is accelerated in cases involving an initially high fluid throughflow rate that decreases with time. Near-steady-state pressures within the vapor-dominated zone are shown to vary with depth to the caprock.
