The?rsteditionofthistextappearedin1994.Shortlyafterthethirdprinting, our editor suggested that we attempt a second edition because new devel- mentsinstellarstructureandevolutionhadmadeouroriginalworkoutdated. We (the original authors, CJH and SDK) reluctantly agreed but with res- vations due to the e?ort involved. Our initial reluctance disappeared when we were able to convince (cajole, twist the arm of, etc.) our new coauth- colleague Virginia Trimble to join us. (Welcome Virginia!) We (i.e., all three of us) hope that you agree that the present edition is a great improvement compared to the 1994 e?ort.

To this end, this text presents the basic physical principles without chasing all the (interesting!) details. For those of you familiar with the ?rst edition, you will ?nd that some things have not been changed substantially (F = ma is still F = ma), while othersde?nitelyhave.Forexample,Chapter2hasbeencompletelyrewritten.
Artists' Interiors offers a rare and unique glimpse into the wonderful homes created by living artists from around the globe. From the stylish flat of jazzy Parisian painter Francoise Biver to the fabulous, fanciful, phantasmagoric Luna Parc home of the New Jersey multimedia artist Ricky Boscarino, this book is filled with inspiring interiors that truly celebrate the creative spirit. Featuring intimate photos and profiles, Artists' Interiors reveals how the artists' living and working spaces help them create the art that is integral to their lives. For these artists, art, home, work, and beauty are inseparable. And self-expression is the guiding principle for truly authentic interior design.

At a time in her life when she once thought a person should have been well settled in for the long haul, Sandor and her new beloved set out to being a new life together. They buy an old house between the large university which employs them both, and a small urban/student "wilderness." Sandor's young daughter, Hannah, divides her time between her father and her mother's new home. Almost immediately, Sandor's partner, Tracy, undergoes sudden heart surgery. He survives, but as they marvel at the fragility of their new life together, they discover that the Archdiocese of Portland is planning a multi-story student apartment complex just behind their small back garden. The development threatens their newfound haven. Making a life in art, finding domestic harmony in a new partnership, discovering how a neighborhood comes together to take on seemingly unbeatable developers, and learning how to move forward through hardship and fear to embrace life in its fullest are the enduring themes of this beautifully crafted memoir.--From publisher description.
