Medical student turned professional soldier David S. Stanley offered forty years of service to his country on the western frontier and during the Civil War. He participated in some of most important Civil War battles, including the Battle of Iuka, the Battle of Corinth, the Battle of Stones Rivers, the Battle of Resaca, the Battle of Spring Hill, and the Battle of Franklin. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at Franklin where he was shot while rallying his troops. Stanley was a complex individual who showed concern for his soldiers and ferocity in battle. As Rosecrans’ chief of cavalry, he deserves much credit for making the Union cavalry an important and daunting power in the Western Theater. He also commanded the IV Army Corps at the end of the war. Stanley was a formidable adversary of his enemies and he clashed with William T. Sherman, Jacob Cox and William B. Hazen. This biography covers not only his military career but also his personal life, including his conversion to Roman Catholicism and problem with alcohol.
Drawn largely from the extensive personal papers of Stanley Marcus, now housed in the DeGolyer Library at Southern Methodist University, Stanley Marcus: A Life with Books sparkles with the names of literary history, most but not all of them Texans - Tom Lea, Henry Nash Smith, J. Evetts Haley, Alfred Knopf, Jose Cisneros, Elizabeth Ann McMurray and McMurray's Personal Bookstore, E. L. DeGolyer, Paul Horgan, and a host of others. David Farmer chronicles Marcus' early fascination with books during his Harvard years, his founding of the Book Club of Texas, his friendship with J. Frank Dobie and his working relationship with El Paso's Carl Hertzog, his own books - Minding the Store and Quest for the Best, and his Somesuch Press, noted for publishing exquisite miniature books.
Stanley and Frances are deeply in love and begin their life together expecting the promise of happiness and fulfillment. Living during the Great Depression and struggling through numerous and severe hardships, however, put a strain on their marriage. They live on The Farm on Ginger Hill with Stanley's father, a tyrant who controls and dominates his family with fear and greed. Frances' father is equally as tyrannical. These two men manipulate and dominate the lives of Stanley and Frances in ways that create a dysfunctional family life. However, their two mothers are both strong forces who have held the families together. The young couple's lives are consumed with challenges that demand patience and endurance. World War II introduces new problems, which prove to be extremely difficult. There are sad times and happy times in this true-life family saga but, throughout, Stanley and Frances continue to travel a hard road. Their uplifting story transcends bad times and evil men to prove that love - and strong women - can conquer all.
Previous biographies of American actress Frances Farmer (1913–1970) have downplayed her professional achievements to emphasize her turbulent personal life, including several police arrests and repeated confinements in a state mental hospital. By focusing upon her acting career, this book endeavors to restore her position as a significant Hollywood player of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. An analysis of her film, radio and television work is offered, as well as assessments of the three Frances Farmer biopics and the documentaries in which she is featured. Each of her 16 films receives a chapter-length discussion. A very lengthy biographical chapter is included.

I was invited to join the Organizing Committee of the First International Conference on Complex Sciences: Theory and Applications (Complex 2009) as its ninth member. At that moment, eight distinguished colleagues, General Co-chairs Eugene Stanley and Gaoxi Xiao, Technical Co-chairs János Kertész and Bing-Hong Wang, Local Co-chairs Hengshan Wang and Hong-An Che, Publicity Team Shi Xiao and Yubo Wang, had spent hundreds of hours pushing the conference half way to its birth. Ever since then, I have been amazed to see hundreds of papers flooding in, reviewed and commented on by the TPC members. Finally, more than 200 contributions were - lected for the proceedings currently in your hands. They include about 200 papers from the main conference (selected from more than 320 submissions) and about 33 papers from the five collated workshops: Complexity Theory of Art and Music (COART) Causality in Complex Systems (ComplexCCS) Complex Engineering Networks (ComplexEN) Modeling and Analysis of Human Dynamics (MANDYN) Social Physics and its Applications (SPA) Complex sciences are expanding their colonies at such a dazzling speed that it - comes literally impossible for any conference to cover all the frontiers.
