            Robust statistical methods are particularly useful for obtaining good results from non-normally distributed data with outliers. This book is the second edition of a book focussed on applying robust statistical methods using R. It is a substantial update, with new chapters on mult...ivariate models, large sample versus finite sample behavior, and measurement error models. The most significant update is that the computing component has been greatly improved with R code and examples now integrated throughout the book. The book is supplemented by a website with all code and data available.

            The World of DC Comics

            The first sustained study of the DC Comics Multiverse, this book explores its history, meanings, and lasting influence. The multiverse is a unique exercise in world-building: a series of parallel and interactive worlds with a cohesive cosmology, developed by various creators over... more than fifty years. In examining DC's unique worlds and characters, the book illustrates the expansive potential of a multiverse, full of characters, histories, geographies, religions, ethnographies, and more, and allowing for expressions of legacy, multiplicity, and play that have defined much of DC Comics` output. It shows how a multiverse can be a vital, energizing part of any imaginary world, and argues that students and creators of such worlds would do well to explore the implications and complexities of this world-building technique. Andrew J. Friedenthal has crafted a ground-breaking, engaging and thoughtful examination of the multiverse, of interest to scholars and enthusiasts of not just comics studies, but also the fields of media studies and imaginary world studies.
