In surveying Tyler's Senate career, Monroe examines his conflict with President Andrew Jackson, the tariff controversy with South Carolina, and the Removal crisis."
Shapers of the great debate on the Civil War : a biographical dictionary by Dan Monroe( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the conclusion of the Mexican War in 1848, the United States seemed poised to fulfill the manifest destiny that was on the lips of journalists and politicians. Yet, even before the war was over, tensions over the issue of slavery erupted. Slavery symbolized the social, cultural, constitutional, and economic differences that were dividing the North and South. Through four years of bloody civil war and the loss of over 600,000 lives, the American republic decided the fate of slavery, asserted the supremacy of the federal government over state authority, and began to grapple with the difficult issues of reconstruction. This work provides substantial biographical entries of 20 individuals who shaped and defined the debates during the Civil War period

Midnight to the boom : painting in India after independence : from the Peabody Essex Museum's Herwitz Collection by Susan S Bean( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revolutionary art movement asserted itself in India between the declaration of independence at midnight on August 15, 1947, and the economic boom of the 1990s. This is the first in-depth study of the three generations of artists responsible for critical shifts in the development of India's modernist art.Their achievements and the country's unprecedented boom ushered India's modern and contemporary art into a new era of globalism, a soaring international market, and an explosion in the media and technologies of art. After independence, India's artists faced a particular artistic challenge: how to express the new nation's distinctive character while entering a global discourse focused on modernism's universal premises of experimentation and shared human values. In the absence of a dominant aesthetic, painters could turn where they wished and blend as they liked -- from Abstract Expressionism to Tantric spiritualism; from Rajasthani painting to changes in India's complex politics, religions, classes, and vernacular life. The contributors to this beautifully illustrated publication bring a deep knowledge of both India and modern and contemporary art: Susan S. Bean, Curator of South Asian and Korean Art at the Peabody Essex Museum; Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University; Rebecca M. Brown, Johns Hopkins University; Beth Citron, Rubin Museum of Art; Ajay Sinha, Mount Holyoke College; and Karin Zitzewitz, Michigan State University."--Publisher's website

Introduction to Digital Image Processing( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Digital image processing is the manipulation of the digital representation of an image. Source of the image can range from a common television video signal to complex imaging systems, such as a scanning electron microscope. Whatever the source of the image, the basic techniques for storing and manipulating data are common to many image processing applications. The actual hardware used in image processing is called a video frame grabber or frame buffer. Video frame grabbers costing under $1000 are now available for many microcomputers including the IBM-PC, APPLE, and S-100 bus systems. Thus, image processing is available to users where previously costs were prohibitive, This document describes the image storage, filtering techniques, and one possible application in the biological sciences. Keywords: Pixels; Convolution techniques; Fourier filtering; and Resolution. (Author)
Computer Visual Simulation of Contrast Sensitivity Deficits Induced by Laser and Chemical Antidote Exposure by Harry Zwick( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Training in some complex combat-related tasks may produce a degree of transient visual impairment which may simulate what could be expected in combat. This paper presents a method for simulating visual impairment produced by potential combat conditions. The use of a computer to both digitize and store as well as produce the simulated image has provided an ideal tool for research. The degree of realism provided by such simulation offers suggestions for development of more realistic training techniques. Keywords: Computer image analysis; Contrast sensitivity; Image simulation; Degraded images; Spatial vision; Noxious environments; Blurred vision; Adverse conditions; Benactazine; and Atropine

The green building bottom line : the real cost of sustainable building( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As any builder knows, cost estimation and reality are often two very different things. "The Green Building Bottom Line" makes the case for green building by providing the insights and data that demonstrate the true costs and benefits of building green. It's a "why to" and a "how to" that explores everything from the ground up. "The Green Building Bottom Line" puts an entire development team at the table to better understand both the issues encountered and what's behind the perceived price premium for building green. This candid and transparent account explores every aspect of green development on groundbreaking projects, from the nation's first all-retail LEED core and shell project to an innovative multitenanted LEED-Existing Buildings office project, to a mixed-use hotel-retail-condo project in a transitional urban market. The authors focus on such issues as values, culture, life-cycle costs, insurance, financing, coordinating a team, marketing, and negotiating leases
