The Road to Chess Mastery
Chess players often reach a certain level and subsequently seem unable to become any stronger. They attain solid and even promising positions without having any well formulated ideas of how to continue the game. They frequently do not understand the strategic requirements of the niceties which go into the building up of a strong position. The Road to Chess Mastery is a collection of 25 games annotated specifically for the purpose of showing how to improve their chess. All phases of chess technique are included: discussions of the basic ideas behind modern openings, explanations of the handling of typical middle game positions, consideration of certain endgames, examples of the kind of technical analysis a chess player must make before deciding on the next move. Through an introduction that explains how the ordinary chess player can improve in the various phases of the game of chess, and in enlightening commentaries far more extensive than space permits in an ordinary annotated game, former World Champion Dr. Max Euwe shows how a chess player should think, by indicating the moves for all but the most obvious moves of each game. By applying what he learns in this work the reader may, indeed, find himself traveling the road to chess mastery.
Instruments of Science
This authoritative reference covers 325 scientific instruments ranging from antiquity to the present, and from the mundane to the highly sophisticated. Entries explain how they work and trace their invention, development, distribution and use. Fully illustrated and complete with bibliographies, it will be particularly useful to students and scholars of modern science and technology. Reflecting contemporary practice, it examines instruments used for testing and monitoring, as well as those used for research, and even considers a number of widely used laboratory organisms (such as drosophila and e.coli) as instruments.

Conservation of Glass
Includes a complete chemical examination of the causes of the deterioration of glass and discusses the possibilities of damage by conservation techniques that have not been fully tested. Provides the theoretical background and the practical procedures used in conserving different kinds of glass. Since the 1960s there has been a great upsurge of interest in the conservation of glass, and expecially of painted (stained) glass, with a concomitant change in emphasis from the work being carried out by museum technicians (or, in the case of painted glass, glaziers who have served an apprenticeship) to the use of trained conservator. This change has required by introduction of thoroughgoing instruction in conservation subjects, accompanied by scientific studies of the causes of deterioration of glass and of the possibilities of harm being done by conservation techniques that have not been fully tested. Much of the work on painted glass has been published only in various newsletters, and consequently there is a need for a book in which these techniques, and also those developed for vessel glass and for the conservation of excavated waterlogged glass, are described fully. This book, now for the first time in paperback, supplies both the theoretical background and the practical procedures used in conserving these different kinds of glass. Includes theoretical background and practical procedures Available in paperback for the first time

The History of Alexander
Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), who led the Macedonian army to victory in Egypt, Syria, Persia and India, was perhaps the most successful conqueror the world has ever seen. Yet although no other individual has attracted so much speculation across the centuries, Alexander himself remains an enigma. Curtius' History offers a great deal of information unobtainable from other sources of the time. A compelling narrative of a turbulent era, the work recounts events on a heroic scale, detailing court intrigue, stirring speeches and brutal battles - among them, those of Macedonia's great war with Persia, which was to culminate in Alexander's final triumph over King Darius and the defeat of an ancient and mighty empire. It also provides by far the most plausible and haunting portrait of Alexander we possess: a brilliantly realized image of a man ruined by constant good fortune in his youth.
