This classic text, first published in 1971, has introduced tens of thousands of students to sound reasoning using a wealth of current, relevant, and stimulating examples all put together and explained in Howard Kahane's uniquely witty and invigorating writing style. Long the choice of instructors who want to keep students interested, LOGIC AND CONTEMPORARY RHETORIC combines examples from TV, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, and, in typical Kahanian fashion, our nation1s political dialogue. The text not only brings the concepts alive for students, but puts critical thinking skills into a context that students will retain and use throughout their lives. This is a book you can actually count on students to read. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

The best introduction to good reasoning available today, Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric: The Use of Reason in Everyday Life effectively illustrates when rational thought is skewed and the importance of background beliefs to cogent reasoning. On every page, these authors invite you to laugh, ponder, roll your eyes in disbelief at the flagrant dispensers of rhetoric that we love to hate - and, in the process, hone your own reasoning skills to a fine point.

Excerpt from Local Climatic and Hydrologic Consequences of Creating Openings in Climax Timber of North Idaho Practicing hydrologists, foresters, and big game biologists have a continuing need for information about the climatic-hydrologic consequences of creating openings in old climax timber. New information was gained recently from a study conducted in the Priest River Experimental Forest, an area which typifies much of the sloping forested land of northeastern Washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana.

This is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art, treatise on the energetic mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, that is, classical analytical dynamics, and its principal applications to constrained systems (contact, rolling, and servoconstraints). It is a book on advanced dynamics from a unified viewpoint, namely, the kinetic principle of virtual work, or principle of Lagrange. As such, it continues, renovates, and expands the grand tradition laid by such mechanics masters as Appell, Maggi, Whittaker, Heun, Hamel, Chetaev, Synge, Pars, Luré, Gantmacher, Neimark, and Fufaev. Many completely solved examples complement the theory, along with many problems (all of the latter with their answers and many of them with hints). Although written at an advanced level, the topics covered in this 1400-page volume (the most extensive ever written on analytical mechanics) are eminently readable and inclusive. It is of interest to engineers, physicists, and mathematicians; advanced undergraduate and graduate students and teachers; researchers and professionals; all will find this encyclopedic work an extraordinary asset; for classroom use or self-study. In this edition, corrections (of the original edition, 2002) have been incorporated. Contents:IntroductionBackground: Basic Concepts and Equations of Particle and Rigid-Body MechanicsKinematics of Constrained SystemsKinetics of Constrained SystemsImpulsive MotionNonlinear Nonholonomic ConstraintsDifferential Variational Principles, and Associated Generalized Equations of Motion of Nielsen, Tsenov, et al.Time-Integral Theorems and Variational PrinciplesIntroduction to Hamiltonian/Canonical Methods: Equations of Hamilton and Routh; Canonical Formalism Readership: Students and researchers in engineering, physics, and applied mathematics. Key Features:No book of this scope (comprehensiveness and state-of-the-art level) has ever been written, in any language, there are no real competitors. This (like the author's other books) is an entirely original work; several of its topics are based on the author's own research, and appear for the first time in book formReadability (“reader friendliness”) in spite of its advanced levelEconomy of thinking: Unified treatment based on Lagrange's kinetic principle of virtual workSuperior and clear notation: both indicial and direct notations for vectors, Cartesian tensors etc.Self-contained exposition: All background mathematics and mechanics are summarized in the handbook like chapter 1Keywords:Analytical Mechanics;Classical Mechanics;Classical Dynamics;Theoretical Mechanics;Advanced Engineering Dynamics;Applied MechanicsReviews: “A monumental treatise … which is going to become a reference book on the subject … It should not be missed by anybody working in the area of analytical dynamics or only wanting to understand major problems of the subject … This landmark reference source … [is] the most comprehensive exposition available of the advanced engineering-oriented dynamics.” Zentralblatt für Math. “This unique treatise should be part of every scientific library and scholarly collection in engineering science.” IEEE Control Systems Magazine “I recommend without hesitation Prof Papastravridis' treatise as a reference source to be acquired by every library of Mathematics, Physics, or Mechanical/Aeronautical/Electrical Engineering department. It is a different book, especially in our Internet era where instant satisfaction is often the primary (sometimes sole) goal of the student or researcher. Putting together 1392 (!!) pages of carefully prepared text and 172 figures (which then become somehow sparse) represents a major effort, to say the least.” Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society “Recipient of the annual competition award, in engineering, of the Association of American Publishers.” The Outstanding Professional and Scholarly Titles of 2002 (March 2003) “Unique in Contents and Perspective … has no Competition in Depth and Breadth.” Dr George Simitses Professor of Engineering Science, Mechanics, and Aerospace Engineering University of Cincinatti and Georgia Institute of Technology, USA “Probably the best of its kind and likely to become standard reference.” Dr Alex Dalgarno FRS, member of US National Academy of Sciences, and “father of molecular astrophysics” and Phillips Professor of Astronomy, Harvard University, and Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, USA “The reviewer shares the author's statement that this book with its almost 1,400 pages is unique among the comparable treatises in the breadth and the depth of the covered material. Regarding technicalities — the students and the young scientists will find a lot of interesting examples and solved up to their very end problems. I recommend you to read this special book in analytical mechanics. It is a useful tool to undergraduate and graduate students, professors and researchers in the area of applied mechanics, engineering science, and mechanical, aerospace, and structural engineering, as well for the physicists and applied mathematicians.” Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics
