Unfortunately, much of what people believe about war in space has been shaped, or misshaped, by Hollywood and other forms of popular media. In this book a STEM educator and a political science professor team up to explore the possibilities for warfare in space and explain why almost everything you've learned about space wars from movies is disappointingly wrong. The truth is stranger and more interesting than fiction. Using history, politics and STEM as guides, this book provides a detailed account of how Earth’s first war in space will be fought. As we show, it will begin not as an invasion of Earth by super-advanced aliens but by Earth starting a war with its Martian colony.

This lively and practical introduction to the mathematics of money invites us to take a fresh look at the numbers that underpin our financial decisions. Morton D. Davis talks about strategies to use when we are required to bet against the odds (purchasing auto insurance) or choose to bet against the odds (wagering in a casino or at the track). He considers the ways in which we can streamline and simplify the choices available to us in mortgages and other loans. And he helps us understand the real probabilities when we accept a tip on that "one in a thousand" stock, even when the tip comes from a successful day trader. With a wealth of entertaining and counterintuitive examples, The Math of Money delights as well as informs, and will help readers treat their financial resources more rationally.

Pascalian Fictions

represents the ante as tantalizingly ... to abandoning an entirely reasonable

"'Pascalian Fictions' presents the thesis that in fragments 135 and 418 (in Lafuma's edition) -- and a fortiori, throughout the 'Pensées' -- we see a coherent dialectic with Descartes and Cartesian thought. Kelly asserts that these two fragments contain a strident and active attempt on the part of Pascal to grapple with and subvert Descartes's ontological premises and to replace them with categories more germane to his system of Christian apologetics. Kelly's work focuses -- via an innovative analysis of structure, form, and syntax -- on narrative fiction as a mode of discourse in the 'Pensées' and particularly in the famous pari."--
