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 ultimatum is irreversible. Earth has only two options. Get chained by the being titled jal-o who claims to be the promised god kalki. Or, die, getting drowned fathoms deep under her waiting oceans. The battle lines keep getting tangled more and more. The alien teenagers secretly hidden on earth have their own plans; the distant planet's ruler, who had sent jal-o to earth, comes to earth demanding obedience, or, else...the guru of a religious sect joins forces with kalki/jal-o. And, jal-o creates a trap for himself, craving for the missing space-opera heroine, determined to make her his slave-queen. Who'd win?

This book examines the social and cultural impact of the 'thaw' in Cold War relations, decision-making and policy formation in the Soviet Union under Nikita Khrushchev. It highlights the fact that many of the reform initiatives generally associated with Khrushchev personally, and with his period of office more generally, often had their roots in the Stalin period both in their content and in the ways in which they were implemented. Individual case studies explore key aspects of Khrushchev's period of office, including the introduction of the 1961 Communist Party Programme and popular responses to it, housing policy, the opening up of the Soviet Union to the West during the 1957 youth festival, public consultation campaigns and policy implementation in education and family law, the boost given to voluntary organisations such as women's councils and the trade unions, the reshaping of the internal Soviet security apparatus, the emergence of political dissent and the nature of civil-military relations as reflected in the events of the workers' uprising in Novocherkassk in 1962. The findings offer an important new perspective on the Khrushchev era.

In N.L. Katzuk's Tallie, the Guardian of Fire, an undeveloped country known as The Territories is a haven for demons who roam the land freely. Humans are in danger, but not all the demons are evil-some are half human and half demon and some are seeking justice. Tallie is a beautiful half demon-part woman and part panther demon. Tallie learns she has six brothers and sisters during her quest to revenge her mother's death. She embarks on a journey with her long lost love, Blaze and her childhood best friend, Shinya to the Northern Territory to save her baby sister and brother from their father. Unforeseen incidents cause Tallie to lose control of her newly found power over fire and now she must prove that she is worthy to become the next Guardian of Fire and Queen of the Demon Hunters. When Tallie discovers the real truth about her mother's fate, she will stop at nothing to seek vengeance and keep the balance of the known world. Who murdered Tallie's mother? Will she be able to realize her destiny or will her mother's murderer destroy that as well? Katzuk's masterful debut novel is filled with bloodthirsty demons, a beautiful heroine and the universal theme of good and evil. Once you begin reading, you won't be able to put it down until its dramatic climax.

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.
