    Budapest Scientific - A Guidebook

    Hargittai István
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    This guidebook introduces the reader to the visible memorabilia of science and scientists in Budapest - statues, busts, plaques, buildings, and other artefacts. According to the Hungarian-American Nobel laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi, this metropolis atthe crossroads of Europe has a special atmosphere of respect for science. It has been the venue of numerous scientific achievements and the cradle, literally, of many individuals who in Hungary, and even more beyond its borders, became world-renownedcontributors to science and culture.Six of the eight chapters of the book cover the Hungarian Nobel laureates, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the university, the medical school, agricultural sciences, and technology and engineering. One chapter is about selected secondary schools fromwhich seven Nobel laureates (Szent-Györgyi, de Hevesy, Wigner, Gabor, Harsanyi, Olah, and Kertész) and the five Martians of Science (von Kármán, Szilard, Wigner, von Neumann, and Teller) had graduated. The concluding chapter is devoted to scientistmartyrs of the Holocaust.

    Leonardo Da Vinci - Obw Factfiles 2

    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Hogy néz ki a föld a holdról nézve? Hogyan működik a testünk? Tudnak-e az emberek repülni? Tudnék-e nyolc méter magas bronzlovat készíteni? Hogyan lehetnének tisztábbak városaink? Leonardo egész életében kérdéseket tett föl, és megpróbált rájukválaszolni. Noha elsősorban művészetéről ismerjük, a mai napig is ő az egyik legnagyobb valaha élt gondolkodó, napjainkban is tanulnak tőle tudósok, orvosok. Ismerjük meg közelebbről azt az embert, aki robot oroszlánt készített, tükörírással írt, ésúgy próbált háborút nyerni, hogy elterel egy folyót...Az új Factfile sorozatból megismerhetjük az 1460-as évekbeli Firenzét, ahol a gazdag emberek nem győzték elkölteni a pénzüket, biztos megélhetést adva ezzel a képző-és iparművészeknek. Itt dolgozott Andrea del Verrocchio mester is, számtalan segédjével.Köztük dolgozott a különös Leonardo, a mester Vinciből való barátjának fia, aki kitűnt a többiek közül érdeklődésével, végtelen tudásszomjával és tehetségével.A2-B1 szint, 700 kulcsszó

    The Road To Stockholm

    Hargittai István
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Nobel Prizes enjoy enormous prestige throughout the world. Every year, science is propelled into the limelight, and in October, when the prizes are announced, and December, when they are awarded at a ceremony in Stockholm, a chosen few scientistsacquire celebrity status and their science receives wide coverage in the news media. First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize remains the only science prize widely recognized by the general public. What sort of scientists become Nobel laureates? How arethey chosen? Are there features common to them, and to their prize-winning research? These sorts of questions have long intrigued Istvan Hargittai and seeking answers, he began interviewing Nobel prize-winning scientists about their careers. Some 70laureates, and a similar number of other distinguished scientists, have been interviewed, most of them during the late 1990s, and the result is this remarkable book. Written for a general readership, The Road to Stockholm illuminates the nature ofscientific discovery, the Nobel Prize selection process, the factors common to award-winning research, and the effects of the Nobel Prize on science itself. Here are stories of scientists who overcame adversity, eventually to win the Prize

    Jackson, Ashley

  • Biblical Archeology (Very Short Introduction - 217)

    Biblical Archeology (Very Short Introduction - 217)

    Cline, Eric H.
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Public interest in biblical archaeology is at an all-time high, as television documentaries pull in millions of viewers to watch shows on the Exodus, the Ark of the Covenant, and the so-called Lost Tomb of Jesus. Important discoveries with relevance tothe Bible are made virtually every year-during 2007 and 2008 alone researchers announced at least seven major discoveries in Israel, five of them in or near Jerusalem. Biblical Archaeology offers a passport into this fascinating realm, where ancientreligion and modern science meet, and where tomorrow's discovery may answer a riddle that has lasted a thousand years.Archaeologist Eric H. Cline here offers a complete overview of this exciting field. He discusses the early pioneers, such as Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and William Foxwell Albright, the origins of biblical archaeology as a discipline, and themajor controversies that first prompted explorers to go in search of objects and sites that would prove the Bible. He then surveys some of the most well-known biblical archaeologists, including Kathleen Kenyon and Yigael Yadin, the sites that areessential sources of knowledge for biblical archaeology, such as Hazor, Megiddo, Gezer, Lachish, Masada, and Jerusalem, and some of the most important discoveries that have been made, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Mesha Inscription, and the Tel DanStele. Subsequent chapters examine additional archaeological finds that shed further light on the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, the issue of potential frauds and forgeries, including the James Ossuary and the Jehoash Tablet, and future prospects of thefield.Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction captures the sense of excitement and importance that surrounds not only the past history of the field but also the present and the future, with fascinating new discoveries made each and every season.

  • The Trojan War (Very Short Introduction - 356)

    The Trojan War (Very Short Introduction - 356)

    Cline, Eric H.
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Homer's tale of the abduction of Helen to Troy and the ten-year war to bring her back to Greece has fascinated mankind for centuries since he related it in The Iliad and The Odyssey. More recently, it has given rise to countless scholarly articles andbooks, extensive archaeological excavations, epic movies, television documentaries, stage plays, art and sculpture, even souvenirs and collectibles. However, while the ancients themselves thought that the Trojan War took place and was a pivotal event inworld history, scholars during the Middle Ages and into the modern era derided it as a piece of fiction.This book investigates two major questions: did the Trojan War take place and, if so, where? It ultimately demonstrates that a war or wars in the vicinity of Troy probably did take place in some way, shape, or form during the Late Bronze Age, therebyforming the nucleus of the story that was handed down orally for centuries until put into essentially final form by Homer. However, Cline suggests that although a Trojan War (or wars) probably did take place, it was not fought because of Helen'sabduction

  • American Immigration (Very Short Introduction - 274)

    American Immigration (Very Short Introduction - 274)

    Gerber, David A.
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Americans have come from every corner of the globe, and they have been brought together by a variety of historical processes-conquest, colonialism, the slave trade, territorial acquisition, and voluntary immigration. A thoughtful look at immigration,anti-immigration sentiments, and the motivations and experiences of the migrants themselves, this book offers a compact but wide-ranging look at one of America's hottest issues.Historian David Gerber begins by examining the many legal efforts to curb immigration and to define who is and is not an American, ranging from the Naturalization Law of 1795 (which applied only to free-born white persons) to the Chinese Exclusion Actof 1882, the Emergency Quota Act of 1921, and the reform-minded Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which opened the door to millions of newcomers, the vast majority from Asia and Latin America. The book also looks at immigration from theperspective of the migrant-farmers and industrial workers, mechanics and domestics, highly trained professionals and small-business owners-who willingly pulled up stakes for the promise of a better life. Throughout, the book sheds light on therelationships between race and ethnicity in the life of these groups and in the formation of American society, and it stresses the marked continuities across waves of immigration and across different racial and ethnic groups.

    The Conquistadors (Very Short Introduction - 301)

    Restall, Matthew & Fernández-Armesto, Fe

    With startling speed, Spanish conquistadors invaded hundreds of Native American kingdoms, took over the mighty empires of the Aztecs and Incas, and initiated an unprecedented redistribution of the world's resources and balance of power. They changed thecourse of history, but the myth they established was even stranger than their real achievements. This Very Short Introduction deploys the latest scholarship to shatter and replace the traditional narrative. Chapters explore New World civilizations priorto the invasions, the genesis of conquistador culture on both sides of the Atlantic, the roles black Africans and Native Americans played and the consequences of the invasions. The book reveals who the conquistadors were and what made their adventurespossible.
