              By Barnes, David

              On 15 January 1972, James Menzies Renwick made his international rugby debut for Scotland against France at Murrayfield. He was 19 years old.

              The role of operations management in the 21st century brings with it many complex challenges, not least of which is the international context in which all businesses now operate. The forces of globalization, underpinned by Internet-based technologies, the lowering of trade barrie...rs and a reduction in transport costs have prompted firms of all sizes to source their supplies, outsource their activities, set up production facilities and serve markets well away from their own home countries. In this concise text, David Barnes focuses on the key issues of international operations management from a strategic and conceptual perspective, using relevant international theory to expand upon the solid foundation of a traditional operations management syllabus. Using well known examples and case studies from real companies around the world, he offers a well-balanced look at both services and manufacturing operations. His accessible and engaging writing style makes this books ideally suited to those encountering Operations Management for the first time at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

              Based on exclusive interviews with players past and present, Behind the Thistle gives a unique insight into the drama and emotion of representing Scotland in that most rarefied of environments - Test match rugby. Drawing on first-hand interviews from a vast array of former and cu...rrent players, from Russell Bruce and Frank Coutts in the 1940s, all the way through to the present day, the authors uncover the heart and soul of Scottish rugby, recounting the ecstasy of victory and the despair of defeat, drawing out innumerable humorous anecdotes and heart-warming memories. Behind the Thistle presents an inside access to the private moments in the changing and team rooms, on tour, and on the pitch itself. From the tension before kick-off to the tumultuous heat-of-battle and the high-jinx thereafter, this is the story of what it is like to play for Scotland, the sacrifices and joys experienced by those who have shed blood, sweat and tears in pursuit of glory in the international jersey. Absorbing, illuminating and compelling, this is a must-have for all supporters who have dreamed the dream of playing for Scotland.

              Objects First with Java: A Practical Introduction Using BlueJ, Global Edition

              Objects First with Java: A Practical Introduction Using BlueJ, Global Edition (Paperback, 6th edition, Contains 1 Digital product license key and 1 Paperback / softback)

              A Modern Approach to Functional Programming Objects First with Java: A Practical Introduction is an introduction to object-oriented programming for beginners. The main focus of the book is general object-oriented and programming concepts from a software engineering perspective. T...he first chapters are written for students with no programming experience with later chapters being more suitable for advanced or professional programmers. The Java programming language and BlueJ-the Java development environment - are the two tools used throughout the book. BlueJ's clear visualization of classes and objects means that students can immediately appreciate the differences between them and gain a much better understanding of the nature of an object than they would from simply reading source code. Unlike traditional textbooks, the chapters are not ordered by language features but by software development concepts. The Sixth Edition goes beyond just adding the new language constructs of Java 8. The book's exploration of this new language demonstrates a renaissance of functional ideas in modern programming. While functional programming isn't new in principle, it's seen a boost in popularity based on the current computer hardware available and the changing nature of projects programmers wish to tackle. Functional language constructs make it possible to efficiently automate currency, make use of multiple cores without much effort on the side of the programmer, are both more elegant and readable, and offer great potential in solving the issue of parallel hardware. Functional programming has become an essential part of the field, and Objects First with Java gives students a basic understanding of an area they'll need to master in order to succeed in the future.
