Mohammad Gholi Majd describes the rampant tyranny and destruction of Iran in the decades between the two world wars in a sensational yet thoroughly scholarly study that will rewrite the political and economic history of the country.
Widely regarded as a classic of archaeological writing, this edition offers an up-to-date look at one of archaeology’s greatest controversies: How, where, when, and why did human beings take the first steps in their journey to populate North America?
New to paper. This bestselling corporate/environmental history examines how the state's largest landowner has the potential to permanently and drastically alter the landscape, environment, and economic foundation of the northwestern part of the state.
In this eye-opening journey through some of America’s most innovative landscape architecture projects, Charles Flink shows why we urgently need greenways. A leading authority in greenway planning, design, and development, Flink presents inspiring examples of communities that have come together to build permanent spaces for the life-sustaining power of nature.

This is an introductory probability textbook, published by the American Mathematical Society. It is designed for an introductory probability course taken by mathematics, the physical and social sciences, engineering, and computer science students. The text can be used in a variety of course lengths, levels, and areas of emphasis. For use in a standard one-term course, in which both discrete and continuous probability is covered, students should have taken as a prerequisite two terms of calculus, including an introduction to multiple integrals. In order to cover Chapter 11, which contains material on Markov chains, some knowledge of matrix theory is necessary. The text can also be used in a discrete probability course. For use in a discrete probability course, students should have taken one term of calculus as a prerequisite. All of the computer programs that are used in the text have been written in each of the languages TrueBASIC, Maple, and Mathematica. Contents: 1) Discrete Probability Distributions. 2) Continuous Probability Densities. 3) Combinatorics. 4) Conditional Probability. 5) Distributions and Densities. 6) Expected Value and Variance. 7) Sums of Random Variables. 8) Law of Large Numbers. 9) Central Limit Theorem. 10) Generating Functions. 11) Markov Chains. 12) Random Walks. The text is best used in conjunction with software and exercises available online at http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chance/teaching_aids/books_articles/probability_book/book.html
