Nikita (1990) is the story of a nineteen-year old junkie, Nikita (Anne Parillaud) who is given a second chance in life through being trained to be - and becoming - a skilled assassin for the State. Nikita is a cult classic, directed by Luc Besson (with Thierry Arbogast as director of photography) in his hallmark powerful style. The film was an international hit, which spawned a TV series and a Hollywood remake. Susan Hayward develops here a fresh and provocative way of understanding Nikita's plot structure as a neo-baroque symphony. She goes in depth into key sequences of the film, examines its reception as a popular film by audiences and critics, and looks at The Assassin, the Hollywood remake of Nikita. This is a wonderfully exciting book on an underrated film. It also shows that the woman placed at the center of a film noir can, as Susan Hayward points out, "for once win - or at least 'get away with it.'"

This is the third and last volume of the only complete and fully reliable English-language version of the memoirs of the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. In the first two volumes, published by Pennsylvania State University Press in 2005 and 2006, respectively, Khrushchev tells the story of his rise to power and his part in the fight against Hitler&’s invasion of the Soviet Union. He also discusses agriculture, the housing problem, and other issues of domestic policy, as well as defense and disarmament. This volume is devoted to international affairs. Khrushchev describes his dealings with foreign statesmen and his state visits to Britain, the United States, France, Scandinavia, India, Afghanistan, Burma, Egypt, and Indonesia. In the first part, Khrushchev talks about relations between the Soviet Union and the Western powers. Of particular interest is his perspective on the Berlin, U-2, and Cuban missile crises. The second part focuses on the Communist world&—above all, the deterioration of relations with China and the tensions in Eastern Europe, including relations with Tito&’s Yugoslavia, Gomulka&’s Poland, and the 1956 Soviet intervention in Hungary. In the third part, Khrushchev discusses the search for allies in the Third World. The Appendixes contain biographies, a bibliography, and a chronology, as well as the reminiscences of Khrushchev&’s chief bodyguard about the visit to the United Nations in 1960 at which the famous &“shoe-banging&” incident occurred&—or, perhaps, did not occur.

The field of mathematical statistics called robustness statistics deals with the stability of statistical inference under variations of accepted distribution models. Although robust statistics involves mathematically highly defined tools, robust methods exhibit a satisfactory behaviour in small samples, thus being quite useful in applications. This volume in the book series Modern Probability and Statistics addresses various topics in the field of robust statistics and data analysis, such as: a probability-free approach in data analysis; minimax variance estimators of location, scale, regression, autoregression and correlation; "L1-norm methods; adaptive, data reduction, bivariate boxplot, and multivariate outlier detection algorithms; applications in reliability, detection of signals, and analysis of the sudden cardiac death risk factors. The book contains new results related to robustness and data analysis technologies, including both theoretical aspects and practical needs of data processing, which have been relatively inaccessible as they were originally only published in Russian. This book will be of value and interest to researchers in mathematical statistics as well as to those using statistical methods.
