«Mit diesem Buch wird der Autor vermutlich die Lücke ausfüllen, die von Tom Clancy und Michael Crichton hinterlassen wurde.» (Wall Street Journal) 1969 eroberte der Mensch den Mond. Und was ist die größte Errungenschaft unseres Jahrhunderts? Facebook? Was wurde aus den Visionen der Vergangenheit? Warum gibt es keine großen Erfindungen mehr? – Als dem Physiker Jon Grady die Aufhebung der Schwerkraft gelingt, hofft er auf den Nobelpreis. Doch statt Gratulanten kommen Terroristen, Grady stirbt. Das melden zumindest die Medien. Tatsächlich erwacht der Wissenschaftler in Gefangenschaft: Das hochgeheime «Bureau of Technology Control» entführt seit Jahrzehnten die brillantesten Wissenschaftler. Zum Schutz der Menschheit, angeblich, denn für Kernfusion und andere Erfindungen sei der Homo sapiens noch nicht weit genug. Für die Gefangenen gibt es nur eine Wahl: entweder Kooperation - oder eine türlose Zelle im Fels, tief unter der Erde. Doch die neuen Herren der Welt haben die Rechnung ohne Grady gemacht. «Ein würdiger Nachfolger für Michael Crichton.» (Publishers Weekly Starred Review) «Eine großartige Tour de Force.» (Booklist Starred Review) Der neue visionäre Thriller vom «Jules Verne des digitalen Zeitalters».

Change is dangerous, technology lethal. So what if our civilization is more advanced than we know? Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves a major breakthrough: a device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionise the field of physics. But at Grady's moment of triumph, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organisation whose mission is to prevent the social upheaval caused by sudden technological advances - advances they use to retain total command. They are living in the future we were promised. Now Grady finds himself in a nightmarish high-tech prison built to hold other rebellious geniuses. Can he and his fellow prisoners escape? And even if they can, is it possible to defeat an enemy that wields a technological advantage half a century in the making? The dark ages are ending. Our future is here...

InFlux: Contemporary Art in Asia brings together essays by leading critics and curators to examine modern and contemporary art practice and its discourses in Asia. Covering diverse regions spanning China, India, Thailand, Iran, West Asia, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Hong Kong, Tibet, and Cambodia, the book examines their multiple modernities and the arrival of many Asia's upon the contemporary art scene. Some centers have become celebrated in the international exhibition circuit and the art market, but there is also an Asia beyond their ambit, and the book throws light upon major and minor, established and emergent geographies of art. Asia’s own internal minorities fracture any unified sense of place, and representing this diversity has become a major challenge for today’s curator. What is the impact on contemporary art of state power and burgeoning economies, or the persistent stereotypes of Asian craftsmanship, exoticism, and religiosity or the new ones of terrorism and tourist paradise? The book aims to challenge some of these perceptions by viewing modern and contemporary Asian art not as a given field but as a project in flux, constantly under revision via art practice and curatorial interventions.

The objectives of this book are: (1) to educate the prospective Pressure Evaluation Geologist to a basic level of expertise; (2) to provide a reference tool for the experienced geologist; and (3) to foster constructuve thought and continued development of the field geologist. Despite the incorporation of many new ideas and concepts, elaboration of the more re cent concepts is limited due to space considerations. It is hoped that the geologist will follow up via the literature referenced at the end of each chapter. Easy reference is provided by the detailed table of contents and index. A glossary of terms, definitions, and formulae adds to the usefulness of this reference text. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS FOR FIGURES Figure 2-7 is reprinted by permission of the AAPG from Barker, 1972.
