The popularity of the Harry Potter books among adults and the critical acclaim these young adult fantasies have received may seem like a novel literary phenomenon. In the nineteenth century, however, readers considered both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as works of literature equally for children and adults; only later was the former relegated to the category of "boys' books" while the latter, even as it was canonized, came frequently to be regarded as unsuitable for young readers. Adults—women and men—wept over Little Women. And America's most prestigious literary journals regularly reviewed books written for both children and their parents. This egalitarian approach to children's literature changed with the emergence of literary studies as a scholarly discipline at the turn of the twentieth century. Academics considered children's books an inferior literature and beneath serious consideration. In Kiddie Lit, Beverly Lyon Clark explores the marginalization of children's literature in America—and its recent possible reintegration—both within the academy and by the mainstream critical establishment. Tracing the reception of works by Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, Lewis Carroll, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank Baum, Walt Disney, and J. K. Rowling, Clark reveals fundamental shifts in the assessment of the literary worth of books beloved by both children and adults, whether written for boys or girls. While uncovering the institutional underpinnings of this transition, Clark also attributes it to changing American attitudes toward childhood itself, a cultural resistance to the intrinsic value of childhood expressed through sentimentality, condescension, and moralizing. Clark's engaging and enlightening study of the critical disregard for children's books since the end of the nineteenth century—which draws on recent scholarship in gender, cultural, and literary studies— offers provocative new insights into the history of both children's literature and American literature in general, and forcefully argues that the books our children read and love demand greater respect.

The Victorian period witnessed the beginning of a debate on the status of animals that continues today. This volume explicitly acknowledges the way twenty-first-century deliberations about animal rights and the fact of past and prospective animal extinction haunt the discussion of the Victorians' obsession with animals. Combining close attention to historical detail with a sophisticated analytical framework, the contributors examine the various forms of human dominion over animals, including imaginative possession of animals in the realms of fiction, performance, and the visual arts, as well as physical control as manifest in hunting, killing, vivisection and zookeeping. The diverse range of topics, analyzed from a contemporary perspective, makes the volume a significant contribution to Victorian studies. The conclusion by Harriet Ritvo, the pre-eminent authority in the field of Victorian/animal studies, provides valuable insight into the burgeoning field of animal studies and points toward future studies of animals in the Victorian period.

These AIP Conference Proceedings contain the papers of the two invited speakers: "Systems with Emergent Dynamics" by Ian Stewart (UK), who received the CHAOS AWARD, and "The Role of Anticipation in Intelligent Systems" by George J. Klir (USA), who received the CASYS'01 AWARD. Second, all the papers of the authors who received a Best Paper Award, and, third, a selection of invited papers. The scope is the study, research, and development in the new frontier of science dealing with the paradigm of computing anticipatory systems. A computing anticipatory system is a system which computes its current states in taking into account its anticipatory states. Strong anticipation refers to an anticipation of events built by or embedded in a system. Weak anticipation refers to an anticipation of events predicted or forecast from a model of a system. Topics include Anticipatory Systems, Cybernetics and Epistemology; Mathematical System, Chaos, Anticipation and Incursion; Relativity, Quantum Physics and Quantum Computing; Intelligent Agents, Learning and Cognitive Systems; Organisation, Regulation, Management and Planning; Control Systems, Robots, Neural Nets and Agents; and Information Science Models and Anticipatory Programs.

This special double issue of Cybernetics and Human Knowing is comprised of a collection of papers devoted to the cybernetics and mathematics of Charles Sanders Peirce with a special focus on its synergies with George Spencer-Brown's thinking. Peirce was a truly original American philosopher and logician working in the late 1800s and early 1900s; Spencer-Brown is an English polymath, best known as the author of Laws of Form. The contributions reflect the extraordinary richness of Peirce's work and his relevance to present concerns in cybernetics. The similarities in the focus on some of the deep foundational subjects are astonishing, amongst those especially the concept of the void or Firstness and the continuity of mind and matter.

Alice sitzt gelangweilt vor dem Fernseher; da fällt ihr Blick auf "Alice im Wunderland", das sie kürzlich gelesen hat. Sie sehnt sich danach, vergleichbare Abenteuer zu erleben, stürzt und fällt in Ohnmacht. In ihrem Traum fällt sie durch den Bildschirm hindurch, wo sie - verkleinert - auf die Elektronen trifft, die als Strahl den Bildschirm zum Leuchten bringen. Das ist erst der Anfang der Geschichte, in der Alice nach und nach die Besonderheiten der Quantenwelt kennenlernt. Sie begegnet Menschen wie Niels Bohr, die sie unter ihre Fittiche nehmen, und steht mit Elektronen und Quarks auf du und du. In dieser neuen Form der Geschichte von Alice beschreibt Robert Gilmore - selbst angesehener Physiker - kenntnisreich und amüsant, welche Besonderheiten uns die Welt der Elektronen und Quarks bietet. Schließlich wird Alice (und damit den Lesern) klargemacht, daß nach 70 Jahren der Forschung auf diesem Gebiet ungelöste Fragen an die Grundlagen der Quantentheorie übriggeblieben sind, die vielleicht nie gelöst werden können. Rezension erschienen in: junge wissenschaft Ausgabe / Band 12Jg., Heft 45, S. 60f Feb. 97 (...) ist es dem Autor in hervorragender Weise gelungen, eine didaktisch äußerst wertvolle Darstellung der Quantenmechanik zu präsentieren(...) (...)erreicht damit einen wesentlich größerenLeserkreis(...) (...)sehr abgerundetes Bild der Quantenphysik(...) (...)in sehr geschickter Weise(...) (...)in sehr prägnanter Form, jedoch in fachlicher Hinsicht völlig korrekt(...) (...)Als besonders gelungen darf man die Übersetzung aus dem englischen Original bezeichnen(...) (...)Sehr lobenswert erwähnt werden muß wohl auch die vom deutschen Übersetzer vorgenommene Aktualisierung beim inzwischen gelungenen Nachweis des top-Quark am Fermilab(...) (...)Der rezensent ist davon überzeugt, daß auch der versierte Physiker dieses Buch mit großem Genuß lesen muß(...)
