The New York Times Bestseller *One of Rolling Stone's 10 Best Music Books of 2015* An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write. Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, to producing Del Shannon, backing Bob Dylan, putting together a band with George Harrison, Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, making records with Johnny Cash, and sending well more than a dozen of his own celebrated recordings high onto the charts, Tom Petty's story has all the drama of a rock and roll epic. Now in his mid-sixties, still making records and still touring, Petty, known for his reclusive style, has shared with Warren Zanes his insights and arguments, his regrets and lasting ambitions, and the details of his life on and off the stage. This is a book for those who know and love the songs, from "American Girl" and "Refugee" to "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," and for those who want to see the classic rock and roll era embodied in one man's remarkable story. Dark and mysterious, Petty manages to come back, again and again, showing us what the music can do and where it can take us.

The story that unfolds in this little volume--in ethereal photographs, perceptive essays, and revealing wildflower species descriptions--is a most moving experience in nature appreciation. Savor every image and word." --from the Foreword by Marion T. Jackson, author of 101 Trees of Indiana and The Natural Heritage of Indiana This lovely and thoughtful volume pays tribute to the native plants characteristically found in the Midwest's quiet waters, as distinct from its flowing streams. While most of the species populate broad ranges, all are part of the familiar display that may greet a summer visitor to lakes and wet grounds in the Great Lakes region. Wild Plants in Flower--Wetlands and Quiet Waters of the Midwest features color photographs of 45 species; delightful and engaging species notes for each plant, its habitat, appearance, and range; and perceptive mini-essays that describe the evolution of wetlands and botanical plants and the dangers they face. This field guide will help nature lovers identify and treasure the delicate flora of upland swamp forests, floodplains, wet prairies, marshes, fens, and bogs, and perhaps help preserve their dwindling numbers.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 1,5, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Volkskunde/Kulturgeschichte), Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Kulturkontakt: Die Engländer und die gälische Kultur, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Normalfall wird unter Reisen die Spannweite der Abwesenheit vom Wohnort verstanden. Reisemotive und Reisebedeutungen dagegen gibt es unterschiedlich viele. Sei es nur zur privaten Nutzung, um einem Publikum nach der Rückkehr zu begeistern. Das Reisen trug zum beruflichen Weiterkommen bei oder sollte zur Reifung des Reisenden beitragen. In jedem Fall erschien es sinnvoll, wie es die Historie zeigt, Reiseberichte anzulegen. Reiseberichte gehören zu einer der ältesten Literaturen, z. B. schrieb schon Odysseus über seine Reiseerlebnisse.1 Ab Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts änderte und erweiterte sich das geografische Wissen der Menschen. Die Welt wurde als ein Ganzes betrachtet, mit allen Meeren zusammen hängend. Es begann das Zeitalter der Entdeckungen. Die verschiedenen Gründe für den Entdeckungsdrang der Europäer waren z. B. Bevölkerungsverluste, Humanismus, wirtschaftliche Interessen und sie reisten auch aus religiösen Faktoren.2 Beide letzteren waren auch ausschlaggebend für die Engländer mit Blick auf Irland. Dennoch hatten die Reisenden, geprägt von der mittelalterlichen Literatur Schwierigkeiten die neuen Welten zu beschreiben. Ihre Denkformen wurden an das Fremde herangetragen und man konnte schwerlich zwischen fiktional, bzw. vorstrukturiertem Denken und der Realität unterscheiden. 3 Aber, dass diese Reiseberichte unersetzliche Erkenntnisobjekte für Historiker geworden sind, wundert nicht, versuchen sie doch die Realität vergangener Zeiten zu erlesen. Auch die Reiseberichte des 17. Jahrhunderts der Engländer über Irland waren von subjektiven Ansichten durchzogen. Die vorliegende Arbeit, die einen Reisebericht von William Petty behandelt, versucht über das Bild der Iren aus der Sicht der Engländer Aufschluss zu geben. Welche Kulturstände aufeinander stießen. Zu einer Zeit des politischen Umschwungs in England geschrieben, ist es herauszufinden, ob es neuzeitliche Ansichtspunkte bzw. Beschreibungspunkte über die Iren gab, um die realistischen Verhältnisse heraus zu kristallisieren, sowie die eher subjektiven Ansichten für England und näher für den Verfasser, z. B. in wirtschaftlicher Hinsicht. Ebenso stellt sich die Frage, welche Rolle der unterschiedlichen Konfessionalität zu teil kam. 1 Vgl. Maurer, Michael, Vorlesung: Geschichte des Reisens.

Langmuir-Blodgett films are the focus of intense current worldwide interest, as the ability to deposit organic films of nanometer thicknesses has many implications in materials science and in the development of new electronic and opto-electronic devices. This book provides a multidisciplinary introduction to the subject of Langmuir-Blodgett films. Beginning with the application of simple thermodynamics to the common bulk phases of matter, the book outlines the nature of the phases associated with floating monolayer films. The Langmuir-Blodgett deposition process itself is described in some detail and contrasted with other thin film techniques. The author separately discusses monolayer-forming materials and the structural, electrical and optical properties of Langmuir-Blodgett films. Each chapter is comprehensive, easy to understand and generously illustrated. Petty provides appendices for the reader wishing to delve deeper into the physics and chemistry background. Graduates and postgraduates in materials science will find this text of great interest.
