    The conservation of metallic archaeological and historic artifacts is a major challenge, whether they are ancient bronzes or relics of the more recent industrial past. Based on the work of Working Party 21 Corrosion of Archaeological and Historical Artefacts within the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC), this important book summarizes recent research on analytical techniques, understanding corrosion processes and preventing the corrosion of cultural heritage metallic artifacts.After an introductory section on some of the key issues with corrosion, part two reviews the range of analytical techniques for measuring and analyzing corrosion processes, including time resolved spectroelectrochemistry, voltammetry and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy. Sections three and four explore different types of corrosion processes for a range of artifacts and discuss on site monitoring techniques. The conclusion summarizes a range of conservation techniques and strategies to conserve cultural heritage metallic artifacts.

    Since the 1970's the authors of this book have been pioneers in the field, having produced several innovative methodologies that are currently used worldwide. This book will give the scientific and technical background to understand, to produce, and to apply nanosystems for conservation to works of art.Techniques based on nanotechnology are replacing traditional treatments. Scientists expanding their activities to conservation need to be acquainted with these advanced conservation methodologies through a suitable theoretical introduction to systems such as nanoparticles, microemulsions and gels. This unique book provides the detailed information necessary to understand and how to produce and use the modern systems for conservation. Numerous case studies will show how to handle these systems.Practitioners in cultural heritage activities and conservation science including scientists and conservators that operate in museums, universities, schools, and other institutions, as well as students, will find this book extremely useful. It also appeal to students in surface/colloid chemistry and nanoscience since it offers interesting practical applications to these fundamental sciences.

    The Abraham and Marian Sofaer collection consists of 4,000 coins and related objects produced by the peoples who inhabited the Holy Land from the Persian period in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE through the Crusader Kingdom in the 13th century of the modern era. Assembled over more than 30 years, the collection contains gold, silver and bronze coins of the Persians, Greeks, Samarians, Jews, Nabataeans, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Crusaders.Highlights of the collection include a rich selection of the fractional silver coinage of Samaria; a comprehensive assemblage of the coins of the Hasmonaean and Herodian Jewish dynasties; superb examples of coinage issued during the Jewish revolts from Rome; fully representative runs of the coinages of the cities of Galilee, Samaria, Judaea, Idumaea and the Decapolis under Roman rule; and rare examples of the Umayyad and Abassid coinages produced in Jerusalem and elsewhere.All coins are fully described and illustrated on 238 plates. These volumes will serve as standard reference works for archaeologists, historians and numismatists studying two millennia of the history of the Holy Land.

    As the theme of sustainability permeates the energy industry and many others, the field of green communications has emerged. And because the information and communications technologies (ICT) it represents use so much energy, companies and researchers are looking to energy efficiency as a way to control costs, but it is such a young field, research in energy efficiency for communications has only recently begun. The authors here address both academic research and pertinent applications for green communications and hope the discussions will encourage continued development of techniques and strategies for solutions. Editors are Wu (founding chair, Technical Subcommittee on Green Communications and Computing of the IEEE Communications Society and former communications engineering professional), Rangan (electrical and computer engineering, Polytechnic Institute of New York U.), and Zhang (information science and electronic engineering, Zhejiang U., China).
