1.0 out of 5 stars Not history at all, 9 July 2011
Not what I was expecting at all - I thought this was a history of how the USSR in the 1950s and 1960s appeared to actually be ordering things so much better than the West. Instead the first 30 or so pages (and I have up at that point) are more like a novel - not worth bothering with if you want history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating!, 14 Jun 2011
This is a very handsomely presented book with lots of articles, short and long, surveying differrent aspects of how Guides have been presented in girls' fiction, some concentrating on particular authors, others on themes. They are all well-written and very interesting, and the bibliography is so useful.
Practical Approach to Logical Access Control by Ernst & Young
0 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This is a great guide to the concept of logical access path analysis and the role the difefrent infrastructure layers can play in securing data, plus the way that different groups of people may have (and need) differnt paths into that data. The concepts are sound, the reason why the rating is not 5 stars is because some of the examples that are provided are rather out of date now, other technologies having emerged.
