In Search of Alexander Gardner John Keay

Imagine spending thirteen years fighting and travelling in disguise in the deserts of Inner Asia, then another thirteen years as an officer in the army of the Sikhs. How would you convince a disbelieving Western audience? Lively reminiscences - such as saving the city of Lahore in 1841 by singlehandedly killing 300 invaders - and numerous scars would not impress them, nor would the eccentricities of old age. Gardner’s story, like Marco Polo’s, changed people’s understanding of the world. The urge to contest or authenticate his account contributed to the scientific and political penetration of a vast chunk of Asia. JUNE 2017 | Hardback | $29.95 | 978-1-9112-7100-0 | 352 pages | 6 × 9.2 | Biography & Middle Eastern History | NCR John Keay’s narrative histories of Asia are widely regarded as standard works.

Reflections of the Past (1808–1959)

Amandeep Singh Madra and Parmjit Singh

From its founding in 1588, the Golden Temple has come to symbolize the epitome of Sikh architecture as well as the undying love of its devotees.

Volume 1

Amandeep Singh Madra and Parmjit Singh

This first of two volumes explores the martyrdoms and conflicts that gave rise to a unique warrior culture steeped in the teachings of the 16th-century mystic poet, Guru Nanak. He was the first of ten Sikh spiritual masters hailing from Punjab. His Sikh followers would go on to change the course of world history. When the Mughal Empire began persecuting the Sikhs in the 1600s, this community of peaceful devotees was forced to take up arms or face extinction.

Treasures from the Toor Collection of Sikh Art Davinder Toor

Two centuries ago, Punjab’s Sikh ruling elite lavishly patronized artists and craftsmen. A sumptuous array of objects fit for Sikh kings, queens, warriors, and saints were produced by skilled artisans to reflect a vibrant and potent new power. By the mid-19th century, the Sikh kingdom had met its demise at the hands of the British Empire. With the loss of Sikh patronage, artistic production switched to serve the tastes of the new colonial rulers, bringing to an end a unique cultural endeavor. Some of the remnants of the Sikh empire ended up in institutional collections, while others were bartered and sold by collectors.

The Journey of Sikh Heritage from Imperial Loot to Auction Treasure Dr. Lucian Harris

At the heart of the royal Sikh court at Lahore laid one of the greatest treasure collections the world had ever seen. Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s spectacular treasury housed objects that are today the prized possessions of some of the world’s most famous public collections – the Koh-i-Noor diamond and his golden throne are perhaps the most well-known. The East India Company’s annexation of Punjab and capture of the treasury in 1849 saw a large volume of armor, weapons, manuscripts, jewels, and other precious artefacts brought to Britain. Collecting Sikh examines the facets of Sikh material culture, highlighting the fascinating stories accrued by these objects in their journey from the palaces of Punjab, to imperial Victorian Britain, and most recently to a global Sikh diaspora hungry to reclaim its lost heritage.

The 25th Battalion in Peace and War, 1918–1945 Doneley Bob

MARCH 2017 Hardback | $24.99 978-1-9219-4158-0 448 pages | 6 × 9 Military History

In 1942 Australia faced its greatest peril as Japanese forces advanced rapidly southward. The Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaya, Singapore, and Indonesia had all fallen, and the only land mass of significance between the Japanese and Australia was the island of Papua and New Guinea. If it fell, Australia, too, would eventually fall. One of the Militia units that held the Japanese at Milne Bay was the 25th Battalion from Toowoomba and the Darling Downs, originally raised prior to the First World War. From Milne Bay, the 25th Battalion went on to fight in Bougainville, clearing the Japanese from one of their last strongholds north of Australia. Toowoomba to Torokina traces the proud history of the 25th Battalion from the end of one war to end of the next. It tells the story of the men from Toowoomba and the Darling Downs who answered the call to fight a war that would threaten their country’s very existence. Like their First World War predecessors, they fought a determined foe in hellish conditions with, as the Battalion’s motto decrees, “Never a Backwards Step”.

Bob Doneley was born in Warwick, Queensland and grew up in Brisbane. In 1978, as a first year university student, Bob enlisted in the Army Reserve. He served as an infantryman and infantry officer for the next 18 years.


Major-General ‘Ginger’ Burston and the Army Medical Service in World War II Dr. Ian Howie-Willis

MARCH 2017 Hardback | $24.99 978-1-9219-4157-3 480 pages | 6 × 9 Military History & Biography

Australian soldiers and their American Allies won the land war against Japan in the Pacific Islands because they were healthier than their enemies. The troops’ fighting spirit, their armaments, their naval and air support, and their generals were certainly key ingredients in the Allied victory. Without good health, however, these other factors would have been nullified. Major-General ‘Ginger’ Burston led the Army Medical Service throughout the Pacific campaigns. This pivotal book explains how Burston and his medical team kept Allied troops healthy in primitive and hostile conditions and during the greatest medical emergency of World War II – the struggle against malaria. By keeping the soldiers healthy, and particularly by reducing malaria infection rates from 100 to less than one case per 1000 troops per week, the Army Medical Service assured an Allied victory over Japan. A Medical Emergency tells this remarkable story for the first time. In engrossing detail and using contemporary accounts, veteran historian Ian Howy-Willis brings to life the struggle of ‘Ginger’ Burston and his Medical Service to fight a deadly opponent that decimated the ranks of friend and foe alike.

Dr. Ian Howie-Willis is a professional historian. The author of 17 books, he is the historian to St. John Ambulance Australia. He and Margaret (his wife of 49 years) have three children and seven grandchildren.

WE ONCE WERE ENEMIES Bruce Frazer and Carol Glasgow

MARCH 2017 Hardback | $39.95 978-1-891928-51-2 Paperback | $23.95 978-1-891928-52-9 256 pages | 5.5 × 8.5 Military History

This is a story about hundreds of very young, very brave men who overcame their selfpreservation instincts to fight in one of the most costly and fiercely fought aerial engagements in history. It was Mission 115 flown by the 8th U.S. Air Force on October 14, 1943. The objective was to cripple Germany’s ball-bearing manufacturing capability. Sixty aircraft with 10-man crews were shot down, an additional 5 crashed in England, 12 others were so severely damaged they were scrapped, and 121 were battle damaged. Hundreds of Americans were killed, wounded, or imprisoned for the remainder of the war. There were few winners, mostly losers – in the air or on the ground. The Mission Commander, Col. Budd Peaslee, and Lead Pilot Captain J. Kemp McLaughlin (now a retired Brigadier General [BG]) sat side-by-side as they led the 291 plane, 30 mile-long, “bomber stream.” The book includes BG McLaughlin’s first- hand descriptions of the mission as only the lead pilot could recount. Personal narratives from the men who flew this mission and after-action reports say much about these gutwrenching experiences, but where, when and how did it all start? Equally important, how did it end?

Bruce Frazer is a former Army Aviator and test pilot for Bell Helicopter Company. He continues to fly for enjoyment and writes articles about aviation and other subjects. Carol Glasgow’s degree in Toxicology and Comparative Pharmacology is from UCSF. She has joined Bruce while flying hot air balloons, fixed-wing airplanes, and helicopters.

EXTREME FORGIVENESS Bruce Frazier and Carol Glasgow

AVAILABLE NOW Paperback | $19.95 978-1-8919-2850-5 154 pages | 5.5 × 8.5 Military History

The theme of Extreme Forgiveness is forgiveness, reconciliation, and assimilation. WWII German bomber pilot Kurt Fox sank the USS Maddox, an American destroyer, in 1943 killing 210 men and leaving seventy-four survivors. After the war, he earned a medical degree and emigrated to America where he practiced family medicine for twenty-nine years in rural Virginia. He then volunteered to provide medical care for two Indian reservations. Fellow practitioners and members of his community accorded him considerable respect. In 1995, fifty-two years after the sinking, Dr. Fox received an unexpected call inviting him to a reunion of Maddox survivors. There, they inducted him into their association as an honorary member. This book is not only an account of Fox’s life; it describes his interaction with the USA survivors” group. It is a moving, poignant story of extreme forgiveness.

Due to increased media attention, most of us are now aware of the substantial costs and delays associated with probate. Fortunately, these problems can be avoided by simply creating a living trust. A living trust is a trust used for the purpose of avoiding probate. It is easy to set up and simply involves completing and signing a trust agreement in which you name yourself as both grantor (creator of the trust) and trustee of the trust. Once the trust is set up, you then transfer some or all of your assets to it. As trustee, you are responsible for the management of the trust assets. When you die, the assets are distributed to the beneficiaries named in the trust agreement. However, as the assets are held in the trust’s name rather than in your personal name, they will not form part of your probate estate, and therefore do not need to go through probate. This allows for the assets to be distributed quickly after your death. This self-help kit provides you with step-by-step instructions, detailed information, and all the legal forms necessary to help you create your own revocable living trust and avoid probate.

Rebel and Statesman-The Early Years

Joseph B. Schechtman, with foreward by Menachem Begin

MAY 2017 Paperback | $17.50 978-0-9354-3748-5 468 pages | 6 × 9 Biography & Religion

Now available in paperback, this two-volume work constitutes the definitive biography of Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky. Many historians call Jabotinsky a great Jewish patriot and statesman, but to others he was an opportunist. A man whose memory commands both reverent loyalty and fierce hatred at the same time, he is one of the giants of modem Jewish history, and one whose life story reads like a history of the creation of the State of Israel. Volume One, Rebel and Statesman, delves into his background as a journalist in Russia, the creator of the Jewish Legion that fought with the British in World War I, a soldier who fought in the liberation of Palestine from the Turks, and the organizer of the defense of Jerusalem against Arab pogroms. It shows the development of character that would drive him to become a political prisoner of the British, member of the Zionist World Executive, and eventually founder of the Jewish military underground. This volume closes with his resignation in 1923 from the World Zionist Organization in protest against the views of its leaders – a turning point in both his career and his life.

Joseph B. Schechtman was a close associate of Jabotinsky for over thirty years. In addition to being a journalist, author, editor, and political scientist of note, Dr. Schechtman was active in Jewish political organizations. He died in 1970.


Fighter and Prophet-The Last Years Joseph B. Schechtman

MAY 2017 Paperback | $19.50 978-0-9354-3749-2 640 pages | 6 × 9 Biography & Religion

Fighter and Prophet is the second volume in the definitive biography of Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky. This volume picks up the story of his life in 1923, at the crossroads of his political career. Deeply hurt and disillusioned at what he considered a defection of the World Zionist Organization from its true purpose, he resigned in protest and sought to devote himself to cultural work and journalism. His retirement proved to be short-lived, however. With a prophetic vision of the future, Jabotinsky called for the “evacuation” of East European Jewry, and launched a program of illegal immigration in defiance of British immigration rules. He also aided the creation of the Jrgun Zvai Leumi, an underground brigade. His tactics and philosophy earned him the devotion of the lrgun commandoes, who came to consider him their spiritual leader. The story of Jabotinsky’s life is a story of soaring hopes and shattering disappointments, of brilliant achievement and devastating failure. It is the story of a man’s spiritual and creative growth, and of the incredible effort he invested in reviving Herzlian Zionism as he forged a strong Zionist-Revisionist organization of his own.

Joseph B. Schechtman was a close associate of Jabotinsky for over thirty years. In addition to being a journalist, author, editor, and political scientist of note, Dr. Schechtman was active in Jewish political organizations. He died in 1970.

The Queen Mary and the Cunard Queens William Miller

MAY 2017 Paperback | $32.95 978-1-7815-5567-5 128 pages | 9.25 × 9 Maritime History

2016 will be the 80th anniversary of the maiden voyage of one of the greatest of all ocean liners. The Queen Mary, constructed in the 1930s, sailed until 1967 and today lives on as a museum & hotel in southern California. She is one of the most famous ocean liners of all time. She served valiantly in wartime, and altogether crossed the Atlantic more than 1,000 times. A beloved ship, the Queen Mary was favored by crew and passengers alike, including some Hollywood stars. She had an undefinable chemistry; “Something in the woodwork that embraced everyone,” according to one staff member. She was also part of Cunard, perhaps the most famous shipping line on the Atlantic. Along with a history of the Queen Mary, this book looks at her runningmate, the Queen Elizabeth, as well as the subsequent Queen—the QE2 and the current day Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth. This book stands as a salute to the Queen Mary, and also to the rest of the great Queens and Cunard itself.

Bill Miller has written over 80 books about passenger ships. He has been a popular guest lecturer aboard several ocean liners for over 30 years. Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, Miller has appeared in numerous TV documentaries and news programs, and he is the subject of a documentary called Mr. Ocean Liner. Miller is the recipient of numerous maritime awards.

17 BIG BETS FOR A BETTER WORLD Edited by Stig Tackman, Kristian Kampmann, and Henrik Skovby

NOVEMBER 2016 Paperback | $20.00 978-8-7932-2954-9 198 pages | 6.69 × 9.44 Political Science Essay Collection

The adoption of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals was a landmark for the global community and our global sustainability. Now, one year after the initiation of the goals, it is time to really start thinking about implementing and realizing the new global agenda. It is already obvious that traditional thinking will not suffice. To reach the new global goals by 2030, there is a pressing need to think creatively and innovatively. The annual investment gap amounts to US $2.5 trillion and the shortcoming of sufficient funding requires smart solutions, leverage of private sector capital, and inclusion of civil society in new ways. This book allows some of the world’s most renowned thought-leaders to provide their perspectives on how we can collectively reach the global goals.

Between Here and There Tom Young, with an essay by John Rohrback

AVAILABLE NOW | Hardback | $50.00 978-1-9380-8638-0 | 112 pages | 9 × 12 Photography & Art

“Backscatter” is the reflection of particles, waves, or signals back to the direction from which they came: in underwater photography, back to the lens. For this book, Tom Young has embraced backscatter as both subject and metaphor to render spaces below and above the water’s surface in highly original ways. Our senses are awakened as Young creates images that evoke an evolutionary path from sea to land, that speak of a global environment increasingly threatened by human action, and that enlighten our consciousness with an abiding spirit larger than ourselves. Metaphorically, Backscatter is about looking head on into a void where what lies above and below the water’s surface can seem harmonious yet helter-skelter. This book brings us to a myriad of places, conveying an overall sense of the human journey through life.

To m You ng lives in Buckland, Massachusetts. He is currently a professor of art, emeritus, at Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, Massachusetts. Young’s work has been exhibited internationally. CASEMATE | IPM NEW TITLES CATALOG SPRING 2017

ONE STAR AWAKE Andrew Meehan

APRIL 2017 Paperback | $15.99 978-1-9107-4272-3 224 pages | 6 × 9 Mystery & Literary Fiction

As far as anyone can tell, the young heroine of One Star Awake survived some kind of trauma, but her memory didn’t. On the day she came to, she was in the kitchen of Parisian restaurant chopping vegetables like an absolute pro. She knows she is Irish because she pronounces “oil” as “aisle”—otherwise, she has a defiant lack of curiosity about her own past. Her present is taken care of by her strident boss, Ségo, and her guileless American boyfriend, Lowell. One Good Friday morning she sees a familiar face in a queue in a pâtisserie. She follows the man, whom she christens “Eagleback”, across Paris’ 11th arrondissement and, over the course of a sticky summer, discovers what they know about each other. Her curiosity starts to grow, and she begins to solve the emotional puzzle of how she came to be in Ségo’s restaurant in the first place. One Star Awake is an emotional journey that combines both mystery and humor into one captivating narrative. Surprising, moving, and persistently witty, it is a novel that’s simply impossible to put down.

Andrew Meehan worked as the head of Development at the Irish Film Board, where he nurtured feature-films, including the Oscar-nominated Song of the Sea. He has been a winner of the Cúirt Literary Festival’s New Writing Award. One Star Awake is his first novel.

MARCH 2017 Hardback | $45.00 978-0-9929-8084-9 256 pages | 6 × 9 Middle Eastern Politics & Religion

Law and organization of society are viewed by Muslims as being based on Islamic Shari’ah (literally, the “the Way”), the body of moral precepts, laws, and rules divinely revealed in the Holy Qur’an and through the life and sayings (Sunnah) of the Prophet Muhammad. Inevitably, much is not explicitly covered in the Qur’an and the Sunnah, so legal scholars have had to employ ijtihad, or human intellectual judgement and interpretation based on the universal guidelines set down in the scriptures, to generate the laws and rules necessary to regulate all aspects of Muslim life, including politics and constitutional matters. In this study developed from his PhD thesis, the author shows that the principles of ijtihad are not so different from those of Western legal thinking. He goes on to compare Islamic political concepts such as shura, or consultation, with Western expressions of democracy. In arguing the ultimate sovereignty lies with the community, he shows that so far from being antithetical to Islam, democratic ideals in fact form the basis of the ideal Muslim political entity.

JUNE 2017 Hardback | $32.95 978-1-7812-2009-2 160 pages | 5.5 × 8.25 True Crime | NCR

Was there crime in the Second World War? At a time of national emergency, the average person could be forgiven for thinking that crime rates would go down as everyone tried to help the war effort. However, the reality was that criminals saw the war as an opportunity to exploit the emergency conditions, and those with a previously unblemished reputation found themselves tempted off the straight and narrow. Criminal activity wasn’t just a civilian occupation. The military services had its share of crime, and the influx of foreign troops added to the problem. Heavily illustrated with both contemporary and modern photographs, this book takes you back to some of the most infamous wartime crimes, such as the blackout ripper, the bath chair murderer, and the last person to be prosecuted in Britain for witchcraft. At a time when rationing, shortages, and the blitz meant feeding the family became ever more difficult, it was all too easy for the increasingly blurred line of criminality to be crossed.

This monograph examines the wide artistic production of Louis XIV’s most prolific and powerful artist, Charles Le Brun (1619–1690), illustrating the magnificence of his paintings and focusing particularly on the interiors and decorative art works produced according to his designs. In his joint capacities of Premier peintre du roi, director of the Gobelins manufactory, and rector of the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture, Le Brun exercised a previously unprecedented influence on the production of the visual arts–so much so that some scholars have repeatedly described him as “dictator” of the arts in France. The Sovereign Artist explores how Le Brun operated in his diverse fields of activities, linking and juxtaposing his portraiture, history painting, and pictorial theory with his designs for architecture, tapestries, carpets, and furniture. It argues that Le Brun sought to create a repeatable and easily recognizable visual language associated with Louis XIV, in order to translate the king’s political claims for absolute power into a visual form.

This book describes a selection of people caught up in the turmoil that presaged the reformation - a period of change instigated by a king who brutally swept aside an entire way of life. The most famous and influential of the victims were the two people closest to Henry VIII: his mentor, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, a great churchman and a diplomat of consummate skill, and the King’s second wife, Anne Boleyn. These two adversaries, equally determined to succeed, had risen above the usual expectations of their time. They were brought down by the factions surrounding them and the selfish indifference of the man they thought they could trust. Though they succumbed to the forces aligned against them, their places in history are assured.

Sex, Scandal and Satire in the 18th Century Mike Rendell

This book provides a fascinating insight into life under the bedclothes in Georgian England, where the madams and pimps were able to thrive like never before. It looks at high-class seraglios as well as the brothels, jelly-houses, and bagnios which flourished openly. It looks at courtesans from the highest echelons of society, the kept women, the sex-workers in “houses of pleasure”, down through to the street walkers and common whores. It shows the way that the sex scene was portrayed in contemporary letters and press reports, and focuses on royal scandals, aristocratic shenanigans, and immoral behavior. It also looks at the way courtesans occupied a demimonde of great popularity. This book is lavishly illustrated in color and contains a useful glossary of many aspects of the world of the Georgian London sex trade.

His interest in the period was inspired by a fascinating cache of papers left by his 18th-century ancestors. He divides his time between homes in Spain and Dartmoor.


For over a century of turmoil, upheaval, and scandal, Great Britain was a Georgian land. From the day the German-speaking George I stepped off the boat from Hanover, to the night that George IV, bloated and diseased, breathed his last at Windsor, the four kings had presided over a changing nation. Kings of Georgian Britain offers a fresh perspective on the lives of the four Georges and the events that shaped their characters and reigns. From love affairs to family feuds, political wrangling and beyond, it is a chance to peer behind the pomp and follow these iconic figures from cradle to grave. As their very different lives will show, being a king isn’t always about grand parties and jaw-dropping jewels, and sometimes following in a father’s footsteps can be the hardest job around.

Over two decades later, Lord Charles’ eldest son, known to his family as Charley, fell in love with a beautiful gypsy girl and secretly married her. When his alliance was discovered, Charley was cast adrift by his family with devastating consequences. A love story as well as a brilliantly researched historical biography, this is a continuation of Joanne and Sarah’s first biography, An Infamous Mistress, about the courtesan Grace Dalrymple Elliott, whose daughter was the first wife of Lord Charles Bentinick.

The Beginning of the Modern Holiday Neil Matthews

This book reveals a story never told before: the early years of one of Britain’s leading modern travel agencies, the Polytechnic Touring Association (PTA). Created in 1888, the PTA was an emblem of the era. It served a growing mass of middle-class and lower middle-class consumers, who found for the first time that they had the time and money to take extended holidays, often abroad. This book uncovers the recollections of those who went on “Poly holidays” before 1914: how they experienced the journeys, what they did when they reached their destinations, and what they thought holidays should be about. Also included are a selection of postcards, photographs, and promotional items from the PTA archives. Victorians and Edwardians Abroad is a fascinating glimpse into holidays as they were, just over a hundred years ago.

Delve further into the carnage that took place around the world, in which unscrupulous and money-grabbing individuals would callously slaughter whole colonies of birds purely to provide the millinery trade with ornate feathers to decorate fashionable hats. The book also takes the reader into the world of millinery sweatshops in poverty-stricken New York. You’ll even learn about the background, history, and amazing life of one of the world’s greatest fashion designers, Coco Chanel. With superb fashion color plates of the day, together with images of creative and colorful hat pins from both the UK and America, the author shares the fruits of his 40 years of postcard collecting.

Nelson Mandela said nothing about his personal religious beliefs in his writings or in his public pronouncements. But those who were close to him know that he held Christian views, and, at his request, the final part of his funeral followed the Methodist service rather than a traditional Xhosa ceremony.

South Africa is a vast country, extending from pristine coastal plains through rugged mountain passes and across wide stretches of semidesert and forest, hills and valleys. Even travelling South Africans are unprepared for the sheer scale and enormous diversity of this grand landscape. Every day, everywhere, there are new sights to behold and new experiences to share – a graceful old Cape Dutch homestead set against lush vineyards, blue-purple mountain ranges in the distance, the demure smile of a Zulu bride, an arid landscape filled with flowers. It is the sun, the sand, the textures, the colors, and the sounds that conjure up the spirit of South Africa. This volume is a fine tribute to the country, showing its people, its landscapes, and its cityscapes in all their glorious colors and moods.

THE GOLDEN REPUBLIC T.V. Bulpin, illustrated by Charles Thomas Astley-Maberly

The Golden Republic tells of the adventure that raised the Republic to its peak and the complex intrigues that brought it down to the dust. It tells of misfortune and riches, and despair of such magnitude that the birth of a Republic seemed inevitable, considering the economic disaster it at times experienced, until gold poked out its shiny head and gave hope again. The characters who crowded into diggers’ towns were some of the wildest and most colorful ever known in the Transvaal. From all over South Africa they flocked to the scene, in the hope of finding fortune. Most of them were just opportunists, who knew nothing about gold except how to spend it.

Just Do It

Anona Armstrong

Whistleblowers have always existed. In general, we are all reluctant to disclose bad news. And bad news has long been associated with shooting the messenger. Today, whistleblowing is still associated with the risk of retribution for the whistleblower, but the messages are now usually directed at the institutions of society. Governance of Whistleblowing: Just Do It examines the value of whistleblowing and its impact on corruption. In short, corruption can flourish in an environment of secrecy, and whistleblowing is one of the best inhibitors of fraudulent conduct. Whistleblowing can be defined as a disclosure of illegal conduct or other wrongdoing.

Options, Futures, Swaps, MBSs, CDOs and Others Robert A. Strong and Nagaratnam Jeyasreedharan

Although most universities now have an undergraduate derivatives course, many instructors were, and still are, in desperate need of a book with coverage that is both adequate and accessible – as most textbooks on financial derivatives are either too basic or too advanced for undergraduate students. This book provides a broad introduction to the options, futures, swaps, and interest rate options markets, and also provides the intuition needed to understand the fundamental mathematics of pricing. In addition, coverage of innovative derivative products such as exotic options, weather derivatives, catastrophe futures, and volatility spreads has not been neglected. We cover these concepts and conclude with a contemporary issues chapter that discusses the latest developments in the field.
