              Syntactic Change in Akkadian: The Evolution of Sentential Complementation

              Akkadian, an ancient Semitic language spoken in Assyria and Babylonia, is one of the earliest known languages, with a surviving written history from 2500BC to 500BC. Guy Deutscher investigates its development over these two millennia. He shows that changes in the language can be ...linked to the emergence of complex patterns of communication required by an increasingly sophisticated civilization. His book will interest specialists and general linguists. It offers the former a significant contribution towards a badly needed historical grammar of Akkadian. Its value for the latter lies not only in the central theoretical questions it addresses on how and why languages change, but in the window it opens to a language that, despite its enormous historical importance, has rarely been presented to non-specialists. The fact that the book links linguistic to social change will also make it of interest to archaeologists and historians of the ancient Near East.

              Intends to prove that the energy crisis is an entropy crisis. This book uses examples from daily experiences to introduce the concept of entropy. It shows that the entropy increase due to irreversible transformations simultaneously determines the level of fresh energy supplies of... our society and the damage that it causes to the environment.

              While the possible depletion of energy sources has been emphasized in most literatures, this book aims to show that the increase of entropy in the biosphere, resulting since the dawn of industrial era, is a cause for urgent concern. As the entropy release puts a limit on sustaina...ble growth, and the CO2 atmospheric content is a reliable indicator of global entropy release that threatens the biospheric balance, a change of paradigm is necessary with the need to switch from an economy of exploitation to an economy of entropy.

              How new are the high Tc superconductors, as compared to the conventional low Tc ones? In what sense are these oxides different from regular metals in their normal state? This book aims to provide answers to these questions, drawing particularly on similarities between the high Tc... oxides and granular superconductors.

              In September 1997 in Cargese, France, scientists gathered to compare experimental results and models now that the availability of single crystals allows high-precision experiments that are reproducible and reliable. Oddly enough, many did not agree, and some heated controversy en...sued. They concentra
