Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world. Robinson in Space incorporates material from the award-winning film of the same name that was released just before the British 1997 General Election. The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.

While many computer books designed for college-level courses are largely confined to programming code and languages, Algorithms and Data Structures: The Science of Computing takes a step back to introduce and explore algorithms, the content of the code. Primarily a text about understanding and thinking about computer science as well as working in it, the book focuses on three core topics: design (the architecture of algorithms), theory (mathematical modeling and analysis), and the scientific method (experimental confirmation of theoretical results). A solid understanding of these methods of inquiry helps students see that computer science is about problem solving, and is not simply the memorization and recitation of languages. Also, unlike most computer science texts, which typically cover this material separately, this book teaches them in an integrated manner so students can see explicitly how they interact. The book focuses heavily on recursion as the main control structure in algorithm design, and abstraction through object-oriented programming. A dedicated Web site with online lab exercises and tutorials is available to provide students with hands-on experience.
