A military historian describes three basic transformations that have taken place within the U.S. military since the Vietnam War, including a move to an all-volunteer force, the emergence of stealth technology, and the application of information technology after the fall of the Soviet Union.

The Logic of Metaphor uses techniques from possible worlds semantics to provide formal truth-conditions for many grammatical classes of metaphors. It gives logically precise and practically useful syntactic and semantic rules for generating and interpreting metaphors. These rules are implemented in a working computer program. The book treats the lexicon as a conceptual network with semantics provided by an intensional predicate calculus. It gives rules for finding analogies in such networks. It shows how to analyse texts containing metaphors both syntactically and semantically and how to use structural similarities between parts of possible worlds to provide truth-conditions for metaphors. Meanings for metaphors are linked to the modal logics of identity and indiscernibility. The book shows how to extend deductive and adductive inference systems so as to handle metaphors and how to handle novel metaphorical word-senses. Indispensable reading for philosophers, logicians, linguists and computer scientists.

This book sheds fresh light on developments in British nuclear weapons policy between October 1964, when the Labour Party came back into power under Harold Wilson following a thirteen year absence, and June 1970 when the Conservative government of Edward Heath was elected.

During the last three decades there have been enormous advances in our understanding of the neural mechanisms of selective attention at the network as well as the cellular level. The Oxford Handbook of Attention brings together the different research areas that constitute contemporary attention research into one comprehensive and authoritative volume. In 40 chapters, it covers the most important aspects of attention research from the areas of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, human and animal neuroscience, and computational modelling. The book is divided into six main sections. Following an introduction from Michael Posner, The Oxford Handbook of Attention begins by looking at theoretical models of attention. The next two sections are dedicated to spatial attention and non-spatial attention respectively. Within section 4, the authors consider the interactions between attention and other psychological domains. The last two sections focus on attention related disorders and on computational models of attention. A final epilogue chapter written by Nobre and Kastner summarizes the questions, methods, findings, and emerging principles of contemporary attention research. For both scholars and students, The Oxford Handbook of Attention provides a concise and state-of-the-art review of the current literature in this field.

Advances in Clinical Child Psychology is. a serial publication designed to bring together original summaries of the most important new develop ments in the field of clinical child psychology and its related disciplines. Each chapter is written by a key figure in an innovative area of research or by an individual who is particularly well qualified to comment on a topic of major contemporary importance. These chapters provide con venient, concise explorations of empirical and clinical advances in the field. In Volume 6, the chapters reflect the changing nature of research on the disorders of children. Since the beginning of this series, increasing amounts of innovative and promising research have focused on the classification, etiology, and development of childhood psychopathol ogy. This volume contains chapters on the classification of autism, the nature of sexual abuse, the development of social deficiencies and affec tion, and the important variables of maternal depression, infant-child interactions, sibling interactions, and early temperament. This volume also highlights another significant trend in clinical child psychology-its increasing rapprochement with developmental psychology. A chapter on the importance of cognitive development in dictating child interview strategies is an important example of this trend. We appreciate the roles played by the advisory editors in suggesting excellent topics and thoughtfully editing the chapters. As always, our strongest thanks go to the volume's authors for their outstanding contributions.

This book is an international collection of contributions from academia, industry and the armed forces. It addresses current and emerging Spatial Vision Models and their application to the understanding, prediction and evaluation of the tasks of target detection and recognition. The discussion in many of the chapters is framed in terms of military targets and military vision aids. However, the techniques analyses and problems are by no means limited to this area of application. The detection and recognition of an armored vehicle from a reconnaissance image are performed by the same visual system used to detect and recognize a tumor in an X-ray. The analysis of the interaction of the human visual system with night vision devices is not different from the analysis needed in the case of an operator examining structures using a remote (endoscopic) camera, etc. The book is organized into three general sections. The first covers basic modeling of central (foveal) vision and its theoretical background. The second is centered on the evaluation of model performance in applications, while the third is dedicated to aspects of peripheral vision modeling and the expansion of peripheral modeling to include visual search. Contents:Quantittive Models for Pattern Detection and Discrimination (H R Wilson)Visual Processing in the Joint Spatial/Spatial-Frequency Domain (M A García-Pérez & V Sierra-Vázquez)Simulating Normal and Low Vision (E Peli)A Multiple Spatial Filter Model for Suprathreshold Contrast Perception (M W Cannon)Discrimination Information in Natural Radiance Spectra (W S Geisler)The Oracle Approach to Target Acquisition and Search Modelling (K J Cooke et al.)Characterization of Task Performance with Viewing Instruments (A van Meeteren)Validation of Prediction Models for Target Acquisition with Electro-Optical Sensors (B L O'Kane)Applying Human Spatial Vision Models to Real-World Target Detection and Identification: A Test of the Wilson Model (S R Thomas & N Barsalou)A Visual Discrimination Model for Imaging System Design and Evaluation (J Lubin)Template Recognition Based on Expansion Matching with Neural Lattice Implementation (J Ben-Arie & K R Rao)Modeling Off-Axis Vision I: The Optical Effects of Decentering Visual Targets or the Eye's Entrance Pupil (A Bradley & L N Thibos)Modeling Off-Axis Vision II: The Effect of Spatial Filtering and Sampling by Retinal Neurons (L N Thibos & A Bradley)Quantifying Target Contrast in Target Acquisition Research (W Kosnik)Simulation of Selective Attention and Training Effects in Visual Search and Detection (T J Doll et al.) Readership: Scientists, engineers, and systems designers interested in the integration of modern vision science into the design and evaluation of human performance with novel display and sensor technologies. keywords:Spatial Vision;Temporal Effects;Low Vision;Military Applications;Natural Images;Display;Search;Visual Discrimination;Visual Identification;Peripheral Vision
