Curtis, Natalie: The Indians' Book. An Offering by the American Indians of Indian Lore, Musical and Narrative, to form a Record of the Songs and Legends on their Race. Recorded and edited by N. Curtis. Illustrations from Photographs and from Original Drawings by Indians. New York and London, Harper and Brothers Pubishers, .
First time it was published in 1907. "The indians are the authors of this volume. The songs and stories are theirs; the drawings, cover-design and title-pages were made by them. The work of the recorder has been but the collecting, editing, and arrangig of the Indians' contributions." - "Indeed, with the passing years, The Indians' Book has become a treasury to musician, artist, poet, and ethnologist alike, and the historian of the future will owe a debt of gratitude to the young woman who made her rare musical gifts and wide knowledge, her spiritual understanding, intellectual penetration, and flashing artistic intuition the medium through which the Indian's contribution of art and creative thought should be recoded for all time." (Preface by B.C.) - The jacket is knocked, rubbed and torn, one piece of the flap is cut out; the book itself is in good condition, just with dedication on the paste-down, the pages are uncut.

Zupancic, Jo e/Wrycza, Stanislaw/Wojtkowski, Gregory/Wojtkowski, Wita/Papadopoulos, George Angelos: Information Systems Development Towards a Service Provision Society, SPRINGER, BERLIN, Dezember 2009 ISBN: 0387848096
This volume of Information System Development, Towards a Service Provision Society is the published proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD2008) that was hosted by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus at the Annabelle Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus from August 25-27, 2008. The theme of the conference was Towards a Service Provision Society.In total, 131 delegates from 34 different countries registered for the conference, making it a truly international event. Papers presented at the conference strongly reflected the conference theme. Of 165 papers submitted, 99 were presented at the conference, representing an acceptance rate of approximately 60%. All papers were peer reviewed by three or four referees (a total of 543 review reports were submitted, corresponding to an average of 3.29 reviews per paper).Over the course of three days, 28 paper sessions were held, covering a range of areas such as: Information Systems Engineering & Management, Business Systems Analysis & Design, Intelligent Information Systems, Agile and High-Speed Systems Development Methods, Enterprise Systems Development & Adoption, Public Information Systems Development, Information Systems Development Education, Information Systems Development in Developing Nations, Legal and Administrative Aspects of Information Systems Development, Information Systems Research Methodologies, Service-Oriented Analysis and Design of Information Systems, IT Service Management, Philosophical and Theoretical Issues in Information Systems Development, Model-driven Engineering in ISD, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in Information Systems Development. The book is organised by order of the conference sessions. While all the presented papers were of high quality, we have selected two of them to share the Best Paper Award. The first one is: Modeling the contribution of enterprise architecture practice to the achievement of business goals by Marlies van Steenbergen & Sjaak Brinkkemper. The second one is: Why can't we bet on ISD Outcomes: ISD Form as a Predictor of Success by Mike Newman, Shan L Pan & Gary Pan. Furthermore, to acknowledge the quality of the reviews he completed, the quality of the paper he submitted, his role as a track and session chair, and his general participation in the conference, we have awarded an Ovreall Contribution Award to Michael Lang of the National University of Ireland, Galway. Details of these awards can be found on the conference Web site at isd2008.cs.ucy.ac.cy.Our gratitude is extended firstly to all those who attended and authored work for the conference. The contribution of the International Program Committee was invaluable in identifying track chairs and reviewers to commit to doing vital work. While volunteering to host a conference is a highly personal undertaking, without support it would be impossible. Thus, we wish to thank our sponsors for their financial support and other aid.The ISD conference community has developed over the years a real sense of collegiality and friendliness, perhaps unusually so for a conference. At the same time it has been a stimulating forum where a free exchange of views and perspectives is encouraged. Perhaps what brings the community together is a belief that the process of systems development is important; whether it is systematic or structured or improvised or spontaneous, there is something about the process and the outcomes that excites us. We form a spectrum of thought from those who see the activity as somewhat scientific to others that see it as wholly sociological; we span a divide between abstract and conceptual, to hard code and artefacts - somewhere in-between lies the truth. If our work is to make a meaningful contribution to both practice (by teaching students) and research (by sharing our experiences and studies with others), then hopefully this conference will have done a little of the former and much for the latter.

H.,Schnyder;Johannes,Isselstein;F.,Taube;Karl,Auerswald;J.,Schellberg;M.,Wachendorf: Grassland in a changing world Book of Abstract, Mecke Druck und Verlag, August 2010 ISBN: 3869440201
ForewordGrassland is the major resource to sustain the living of about one billion people worldwide. In industrialized Europe, grassland covers some 30 % of the agricultural area and forms the basis of a strong ruminant livestock sector. Grassland also provides a broad range of services that are beneficial for man. In addition to the production of herbage for livestock, grassland plays a major role in, for example, the maintenance of biodiversity, carbon sequestration into soils, clean surface and ground water, and the provision of an attractive environment for recreation and leisure activities. The way grassland provides these services is increasingly being affected by large scale processes that are commonly summarized as global change. Grassland farming, the intensity of management and utilization, and the production of goods and environmental services at a given site are strongly affected by global markets for tradable goods, by international societal developments, by worldwide and realtime information exchange, and, most importantly, by climate change. These factors are seriously challenging the functioning of grassland and there is a great uncertainty as to how grassland will maintain its importance. Grassland researchers have realized this challenge and they have responded with in depth research in the various aspects of grassland farming and global change.This was the background for the organizers of the EGF 2010 General Meeting to select 'Grassland in a Changing World' as the general topic of the conference. It is the first time that this topic has been addressed as the major theme for an EGF conference. Within this theme, five sections have been identified, ranging from 'grassland, climate and socio-economic change', over 'the future of grassland production systems', 'from grass to milk and meat', 'grassland ecosystem services', to 'pastoral systems'. Peer reviewed papers have been included in the present conference proceedings that are published in the EGF book series 'Grassland Science in Europe' as volume 15. Each section is introduced by a pair of review-papers from experienced scientists, followed by a set of voluntary submissions that had been presented at the conference as either oral or paper contributions. The book is an excellent source for up-todate research in the field of grassland science and global change.We wish to express our gratitude to the many people who have contributed to the conference. First of all we thank the 400 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world for their scientific contributions as lectures, papers, posters and in the discussions. We particularly thank the numerous people that actively supported the planning and preparation of the conference: the members of the Organizing and the Scientific Committees, the many external reviewers, Alan Hopkins for the anglicizing of the manuscripts, Karl Auerswald for revising, formatting and proofreading of the whole book, and Melitta Sternkopf for managing the correspondence with the authors. Special thanks go to the members of the organizing group at Kiel University, Antje Herrmann as the Conference Secretary, Sigmone Hoffmann, Karin Rahn and the many 'helping hands' in the conference office, and the technical support team. Many thanks also to Martin Elsäßer and his team for organizing the most attractive preconference tour. They were all very dedicated to the conference and it was a pleasure to share the experience of organizing a General Meeting with them. The European Grassland Federation Secretary Willy Kessler was very helpful in giving sound advice throughout the four years of conference preparations.The conference was supported by many sponsors whose contributions are gratefully acknowledged.Hans Schnyder Chairman of the Scientific Committee Friedhelm Taube Chairman of the Organizing CommitteeJohannes IsselsteinPresident of the European Grassland FederationTable of ContentSession 1.
