Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Hopper, Robert DeNiro, Marilyn Monroe, and Joanne Woodward-these are only a few of the many actors trained in "Method" acting by the great and legendary Lee Strasberg. This revolutionary theory of acting-developed by Stanislavsky and continued by Strasberg-has been a major influence on the art of acting in our time. During his last decade, Strasberg devoted himself to a work that would explain once and for all what The Method was and how it worked, as well as telling the story of its development and of the people involved with it. The result is a masterpiece of wisdom and guidance for anyone involved with the theater in any way. .

What others in the trenches say about The Pragmatic Programmer... “The cool thing about this book is that it’s great for keeping the programming process fresh. The book helps you to continue to grow and clearly comes from people who have been there.” —Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change “I found this book to be a great mix of solid advice and wonderful analogies!” —Martin Fowler, author of Refactoring and UML Distilled “I would buy a copy, read it twice, then tell all my colleagues to run out and grab a copy. This is a book I would never loan because I would worry about it being lost.” —Kevin Ruland, Management Science, MSG-Logistics “The wisdom and practical experience of the authors is obvious. The topics presented are relevant and useful.... By far its greatest strength for me has been the outstanding analogies—tracer bullets, broken windows, and the fabulous helicopter-based explanation of the need for orthogonality, especially in a crisis situation. I have little doubt that this book will eventually become an excellent source of useful information for journeymen programmers and expert mentors alike.” —John Lakos, author of Large-Scale C++ Software Design “This is the sort of book I will buy a dozen copies of when it comes out so I can give it to my clients.” —Eric Vought, Software Engineer “Most modern books on software development fail to cover the basics of what makes a great software developer, instead spending their time on syntax or technology where in reality the greatest leverage possible for any software team is in having talented developers who really know their craft well. An excellent book.” —Pete McBreen, Independent Consultant “Since reading this book, I have implemented many of the practical suggestions and tips it contains. Across the board, they have saved my company time and money while helping me get my job done quicker! This should be a desktop reference for everyone who works with code for a living.” —Jared Richardson, Senior Software Developer, iRenaissance, Inc. “I would like to see this issued to every new employee at my company....” —Chris Cleeland, Senior Software Engineer, Object Computing, Inc. “If I’m putting together a project, it’s the authors of this book that I want. . . . And failing that I’d settle for people who’ve read their book.” —Ward Cunningham Straight from the programming trenches, The Pragmatic Programmer cuts through the increasing specialization and technicalities of modern software development to examine the core process--taking a requirement and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users. It covers topics ranging from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse. Read this book, and you'll learn how to Fight software rot; Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge; Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code; Avoid programming by coincidence; Bullet-proof your code with contracts, assertions, and exceptions; Capture real requirements; Test ruthlessly and effectively; Delight your users; Build teams of pragmatic programmers; and Make your developments more precise with automation. Written as a series of self-contained sections and filled with entertaining anecdotes, thoughtful examples, and interesting analogies, The Pragmatic Programmer illustrates the best practices and major pitfalls of many different aspects of software development. Whether you're a new coder, an experienced programmer, or a manager responsible for software projects, use these lessons daily, and you'll quickly see improvements in personal productivity, accuracy, and job satisfaction. You'll learn skills and develop habits and attitudes that form the foundation for long-term success in your career. You'll become a Pragmatic Programmer.

The Portrait of Dorian Gray is a novel by Oscar Wilde, published in 1890 (revised in 1891) and written in the context of the Victorian era. The author includes themes of aesthetics such as art, beauty, youth, morals and hedonism. The novel is fantastic, but also philosophical, and highlights the equivocal personality of the Irish dandy as well as the current decadentist, prompting virulent exchanges of letters between Wilde and several very critical papers judging the work "repugnant." It is also Wilde's only novel in his entire career. Summary Dorian meets Lord Henry, says Harry, a friend of Basil Hallward, a renowned painter. Conscious of the fascination and perversion that Lord Henry might have for his ideal of beauty, "this simple and beautiful nature," Basil asks Lord Henry not to attempt to corrupt him. But Dorian lets himself be seduced by theories about youth and the pleasure of this new friend who reveals it to himself by flattering him: "A new hedonism ... You could be the visible symbol. With your personality, there is nothing you can do. " From then on, he became deeply jealous of his own portrait painted by Basil Hallward. He expressed the hope that the painting would age in its place in order to be able to preserve its beauty as a teenager. "If I were still young and the portrait grows old in my place! I would give everything, everything so that it would be so. There is nothing in the world that I would not give. I would give my soul! ." Eventually the young man falls in love with an actress whose fascination, Sibyl Vane, and promises him marriage. But his love for Dorian prevents Sibyl from embodying her characters as she did before and her game becomes very bad, which can be seen by Basil and Lord Henry that Dorian took with him to the theater. Deeply disappointed and humiliated, Dorian repudiates Sibyl and leaves her brutally, leaving her collapsed. On returning he notices on the portrait an expression of cruelty which he did not know. He begins to suspect that his senseless wish might have been realized. The next day Harry learns of Sibyl's suicide. Surprisingly, he only feels a superficial pain at the announcement of this death: "However, I must admit that this event did not move me as much as it should have. It seems to me as the sublime denouement of an astonishing piece. He has all the frightful beauty of a Greek tragedy, a tragedy in which I played a great part but from which I emerged unscathed. ." It is a pivotal moment of the novel, the moment when Dorian's return is no longer possible, although he does not know it yet. The portrait began to change: Dorian's soul is no longer that of the innocent young man who could feel compassion for his fellow men....

"Forgotten Peace examines Colombian society's attempt to move beyond the Western Hemisphere's worst mid-century conflict and how that effort molded notions of belonging and understandings of the past. In this book, Robert A. Karl reconstructs encounters between government officials, rural peoples, provincial elites, and urban intellectuals during a crucial conjuncture that saw reformist optimism transform into alienation. In addition to offering a sweeping reinterpretation of Colombian history--including the most detailed account of the origins of the FARC insurgency in any language--Karl provides a Colombian vantage on global processes of democratic transition, development, and memory formation in the 1950s and 1960s. Sweeping in scope, Forgotten Peace challenges contemporary theories of violence in Latin America."--Provided by publisher.

The book presents a selection of papers on syntactic variation from different theoretical and methodological points of view. As such, it contributes to a process of reflection on the dialectical relationship between theoretical explanation and empirical description. In the first part, the authors discuss the use of corpora in syntactic variation studies. The rest of the book presents some new approaches to a number of controversial topics. Part Two concentrates on word order, information structure, and its phonological realization, while Part Three enlarges on variations in the encoding of syntactic relations.
