On November 2nd armed with a sheaf of visas...one suitcase...and my typewriter, I left humdrum London for the thrilling cities of the world... In 1959, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, was commissioned by the Sunday Times to explore fourteen of the world’s most exotic cities. Fleming saw it all with a thriller writer’s eye. From Hong Kong to Honolulu, New York to Naples, he left the bright main streets for the back alleys, abandoning tourist sites in favour of underground haunts, and mingling with celebrities, gangsters and geishas. The result is a series of vivid snapshots of a mysterious, vanished world.

Ambrose of Milan
The episcopate of Ambrose of Milan (374-97) is pivotal to understanding the developing relationship between the Christian Church and the Roman Empire in late antiquity. As bishop of Milan, Ambrose came into frequent contact with the highest levels of the imperial administration, including the emperors Gratian, Valentinian II, and Theodosius I themselves. He also exerted a degree of leadership in doctrinal matters over the bishops of northern Italy and adjacent regions. Any consideration of Ambrose’s career must begin with his own writings. This volume presents some of his most important works: the tenth book of his collection of letters; the letters that are preserved outside his published collection (Epistulae extra collectionem); and his funeral speeches for Valentinian II and Theodosius I. They document not only his influence over the bishops of neighbouring cities, but also his celebrated conflicts with the imperial court over the altar of Victory at Rome, the imperial siege of churches in Milan, the affair of the synagogue at Callinicum, and the massacre of civilians at Thessalonica. In these texts Ambrose sets forth his views about his rights as bishop to govern his church without imperial interference, and to condemn any emperor whose actions were deemed to be sinful. This volume will be of value to students and scholars of the history of the Church and the Roman Empire in late antiquity, and to anyone interested in the passage from pagan antiquity to the Christian Middle Ages.
C Programming Today
"C++ Programming Today, Second Edition is an easy-to-read, comprehensive introduction to today's C++ language and object-oriented programming. One step at a time, Barbara Johnston guides beginners from the simplest object-oriented techniques all the way to virtual functions and other complex topics." "Students learn C++ fundamentals through more than 115 complete, classroom-tested code examples, many of them new to this edition. Johnston not only explains the code snippets she presents, she also demonstrates how they fit into complete programs." "C++ Programming Today, Second Edition introduces important object-oriented classes and techniques exceptionally early, in Chapter 2. Since students quickly learn how to create objects and call class functions, they can begin building sophisticated and interesting programs earlier than they would in the traditional C++ curriculum." "This book offers extensive practical information for real-world development, based on the author's 20+ years as a working programmer and instructor. Johnston presents valuable style recommendations, mistakes to avoid, debugging and troubleshooting techniques, and commonsense advice. Each chapter contains hands-on exercises designed to promote mastery."--BOOK JACKET.
In this study Larissa Bonfante traces the development of Etruscan dress from the eighth to the fifth century B.C.E., using as evidence actual remnants of costumes, sculptures and other artistic representations, and literary passages dealing with the subject. Bonfante explores Near Eastern influences on Etruscan dress as well as the relationships of Greek and Roman styles to Etruscan styles. She also addresses the problem of determining which garments were actually worn and which were only artistic conventions. In addition, by tracing the origin of each style of dress, she provides a chronology of Etruscan relations with the Near East and the cities of Greece. For this paperback edition, an updated bibliographical essay discusses the latest research and discoveries in the field.
