Dynamics of Particles and Rigid Bodies: A Systematic Approach is intended for undergraduate courses in dynamics. This work is a unique blend of conceptual, theoretical, and practical aspects of dynamics generally not found in dynamics books at the undergraduate level. In particular, in this book the concepts are developed in a highly rigorous manner and are applied to examples using a step-by-step approach that is completely consistent with the theory. In addition, for clarity, the notation used to develop the theory is identical to that used to solve example problems. The result of this approach is that a student is able to see clearly the connection between the theory and the application of theory to example problems. While the material is not new, instructors and their students will appreciate the highly pedagogical approach that aids in the mastery and retention of concepts. The approach used in this book teaches a student to develop a systematic approach to problem-solving. The work is supported by a great range of examples and reinforced by numerous problems for student solution. An Instructor's Solutions Manual is available.
Undoubtedly the most popular book in American labor history, the I.W.W.'sLittle Red Song Book has been a staple item on picket lines and workers' gatherings for generations and has gone through numerous editions. As a result of I.W.W. efforts to keep up with the times, however, recent versions of the songbook have omitted most of the old-time favorites, especially the raucous lyrics of the free-spirited hoboes who made up such a large portion of the union's membership in its heyday. Reprinted here is the 19th edition, originally issued in 1923, the year the I.W.W. reached its peak membership. Of the 52 songs in this book, the overwhelming majority have not been included in the I.W.W.'s own songbooks for many years. Here are such classics as Joe Hill's "John Golden and the Lawrence Strike," "We Will Sing One Song," "Scissor Bill," "The Tramp," and others; T-Bone Slim's "I'm Too Old to Be a Scab," "Mysteries of a Hobo's Life," "I Wanna Free Miss Liberty," and others; Ralph Chaplin's "All Hell Can't Stop Us," "Up from Your Knees," "May Day Song," and more; and other songs by C. G. Allen, Richard Brazier, Pat Brennan, James Connelly, Laura Payne Emerson, and many others.
