Finally back in print and now in audio – David Foster Wallace and Mark Costello's exuberant exploration of rap music and culture.

Signifying Rappers (Audiobook)
Living together in Cambridge in 1989, David Foster Wallace and longtime friend Mark Costello discovered that they shared "an uncomfortable, somewhat furtive, and distinctively white enthusiasm for a certain music called rap/hip-hop." The book they wrote together, set against the legendary Boston music scene, mapped the bipolarities of rap and pop, rebellion and acceptance, glitz and gangsterdom. Signifying Rappers issued a fan's challenge to the giants of rock writing, Greil Marcus, Robert Palmer, and Lester Bangs: Could the new street beats of 1989 set us free, as rock had always promised?

Available again at last, Signifying Rappers is a rare record of a city and a summer by two great thinkers, writers, and friends. With a new foreword by Mark Costello on his experience writing with David Foster Wallace, this reissue cannot be missed.

Basics of Thermodynamics and Phase Transitions in Complex Intermetallics

Complex metal alloys (CMAs) comprise a huge group of largely unknown alloys and compounds where many phases are formed with crystal structures based on giant unit cells containing atom clusters ranging from tens of to several thousand atoms per unit cell. In these phases for many phenomena the physical length scales are substantially smaller than the unit-cell dimension. Hence these materials offer unique combinations of properties which are mutually exclusive in conventional materials such as metallic electric conductivity combined with low thermalconductivity good light absorption with high-temperature stability high metallic hardness with reduced wetting by liquids etc. This book is the first in a series of four books issued yearly as a deliverable of the Laboratoire de Chimie Physique Matiere et Rayonnement in France a research school established within the European Network of Excellence CMA. Written by reputed experts in the fields of metal physics, surface physics, surface chemistry, metallurgy, and process engineering, this book brings together expertise found inside as well as outside the network to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge in CMAs.
