    Robert Rosen was not only a biologist, he was also a brilliant mathematician whose extraordinary contributions to theoretical biology were tremendous. Founding, with this book, the area of Anticipatory Systems Theory is a remarkable outcome of his work in theoretical biology. This second edition of his book Anticipatory Systems, has been carefully revised and edited, and includes an Introduction by Judith Rosen. It has also been expanded with a set of Prolegomena by Dr. Mihai Nadin, who offers an historical survey of this fast growing field since the original work was published. There is also some exciting new work, in the form of an additional chapter on the Ontology of Anticipation, by Dr. John Kineman. An addendum-- with autobiographical reminiscences by Robert Rosen, himself, and a short story by Judith Rosen about her father-- adds a personal touch. This work, now available again, serves as the guiding foundations for the growing field of Anticipatory Systems and, indeed, any area of science that deals with living organisms in some way, including the study of Life and Mind. It will also be of interest to graduate students and researchers in the field of Systems Science.

    Goldovskaia, a prize-winning documentary filmmaker who taught for decades at Moscow State U. and now teaches at UCLA, has written a biographical account of her life and work in Russia, where she began making films in the 1930s. In an animated style, often incorporating dialogue to tell her stories, Goldovskaia describes her determined, lifelong pursuit to make films depicting both contemporary life and historic events, and the endless, pointless trials of dealing with Soviet bureaucracy as she struggled to have her films allowed, both to be made and to be shown. An alphabetical list of writers, actors, and others is included as an appendix, with short biographies of each. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
