In a context of almost instantaneous global communications, where technology moves faster than the law, Mills traces the sharp edge between freedom of expression and the individual dignity that privacy preserves.
A Problem Course in Mathematical Logic is intended to serve as the text for an introduction to mathematical logic for undergraduates with some mathematical sophistication. It supplies definitions, statements of results, and problems, along with some explanations, examples, and hints. The idea is for the students, individually or in groups, to learn the material by solving the problems and proving the results for themselves. The book should do as the text for a course taught using the modified Moore-method. The book is available in LaTeX, PDF, and PostScript formats at: http://euclid.trentu.ca/math/sb/pcml/pcml.html
This is an introductory book to programming and computer science using assembly language. It assumes the reader has never programmed before, and introduces the concepts of variables, functions, and flow control. The reason for using assembly language is to get the reader thinking in terms of how the computer actually works underneath. Knowing how the computer works from a "bare-metal" standpoint is often the difference between top-level programmers and programmers who can never quite master their art. Contents: 1) Computer Architecture. 2) Functions. 3) Files. 4) Developing Robust Programs. 5) Sharing Functions with Code Libraries. 6) Counting Like A Computer. 7) High Level Languages. 8) GUI Programming. 9) Common x86 Instructions. 10) Important System Calls. 11) Table of ASCII Codes. 12) Idioms in Assembly Language.

The approach of this text is to take learners through a progression of materials in order to develop skills of modular, structured programming. The text was written, for the most part, without consideration of a specific programming language. However, in many cases the C++ language is discussed as part of the explanation of the concept. Often the examples used for C++ are exactly the same for the Java programming language.
