*The Science of Nanotechnology: An Introductory Text*

Nanotechnology is a rapidly advancing field that studies and utilizes molecular structures that are at the nanometer scale -- just few atoms thick. The text, written by multidisciplinary team of chemists, physicists, and a mathematician, explores the basic science of nanoparticles, discussing the chemical, mechanical, magnetic, optical, and geometric properties of nanoparticles and nanotubes. The text is written for a sophomore audience in order to bring introductory notions of nanotechnology as early as possible in the undergraduate curriculum. Only a background of freshman mathematics, chemistry and physics is needed. The text was written through an NSF grant (Award DMR-0304487) as part of the NSF Nanotechnology in Undergraduate Education program.

*The Legacy of the Crash: How the Financial Crisis Changed America and Britain * September 2008 saw the most spectacular financial crash since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The crisis prompted record-breaking financial bail-outs in America and Britain. The legacy is record government debt and low growth on both sides of the Atlantic, which is profoundly reshaping society on both sides of the Atlantic.

*The Legacy of the Crash*provides a sophisticated account of how the administrations are faring. They explore the impact of the crisis and assess how political leaders in both countries have responded, whilst also looking at the challenges of governing in the new 'age of austerity'.

By Terrence Casey, Ed., The Legacy of the Crash: How the Financial Crisis Changed America and Britain, Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.
