Ian Brown - A Colonial Economy in Crisis: Burma's Rice Cultivators and the World Depression of the 1930s
Published: 2005-05-17 | ISBN: 0415305802 | PDF | 144 pages | 3 MB
The book challenges the orthodox argument that rural populations which abandoned self-sufficiency to become single commodity producers, and were supposedly very vulnerable to the commodity price collapse of the 1930s Depression, did not suffer as much as has been supposed. It shows how the effects of the depression were complicated, varying between regions, between different kinds of economic actors, and over time, and shows how the 'victims' of the depression were not passive, working imaginatively to mitigate their circumstances.

T. P. Leung, H. S. Qin, "Advanced Topics in Nonlinear Control Systems"
2001 | ISBN-10: 9810244428 | 256 pages | PDF | 8 MB
Over the last 50 years or so, a number of textbooks, monographs and even popular books have been published on nonlinear control theory and design methods. In the area of classical control, for example, there exist books concerned with phase-plane analysis, describing function approach, absolute stability and so on. In the area of modern control there are those related to optimal control, using differential geometry and the differential algebra method, variable structural control, H-infinite control and so on. These books have been useful in promoting the development of automatic control science and technology. Since 1990 there have been many new results and contributions in the area of nonlinear control. This book introduces those topics to interested readers. It should also benefit automation engineers, researchers and scholars in related fields.
