The Confession

The Confession

An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. For every innocent man sent to prison, there is a guilty one left on the outside. He doesn't understand how the police and prosecutors got the wrong man, and he certainly doesn't care. He just can’t believe his good luck. Time passes and he realizes that the mistake will not be corrected: the authorities believe in their case and are determined to get a conviction.

He may even watch the trial of the person wrongly accused of his crime. He is relieved when the verdict is guilty. He laughs when the police and prosecutors congratulate themselves. He is content to allow an innocent person to go to prison, to serve hard time, even to be executed. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high school cheerleader.

She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence.

Now Salander is fighting back. From the Hardcover edition.

Encyclopedia of Cold War Espionage, Spies, and Secret Operations

Encyclopedia of Cold War Espionage, Spies, and Secret Operations

Everybody spied on everybody else during the Cold War. France had agents in the U.S., China had agents in East Germany, Poland had agents in Great Britain, and the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. had agents everywhere—in governments, in industry, in the military, and within each other's, and their own, intelligence agencies. A-Z entries provide a fascinating glimpse into the subterranean world, events, people and operations of the Cold War. Cold War espionage was a nightmare of errors, seen darkly in a wilderness of mirrors, raining desperate deceptions in a climate of treason, with assassins trading in treachery using hidden hands running invisible governments. As fascinating as it was lethal, this labyrinthian world is still masked in mystery. A good amount is known and knowable, however, and this encyclopedia offers up the latest and most up to date information available, drawn from scholarship, memoirs, and journalism.




Computers and communication devices in book format - the future of books

The future of book are electronic computers and telecommunication devices with all the following properties and functions:

- They have a size like an A4 book or A3 book, and are thin and lightweight.

- They have a big screen suited for reading with good resolution like a book baper..

- They have full telecommunication facilities built inn like a mobile telephone

- They have full networking capabilities so that they can be connected to any computer or telephone network,

- They have voice input and output unit like a mobile telephone

- They can be connected to any printer or scanner like any other computer.

- They have full computing capabilities like a mobile PC

- They have softwere that allows navigation vand isualisation of text, pictures and videos in a way analogically to the way you navigate through a book. - There will be central databases of book titles so that any book can be uploaded for use or where own written material can be downloaded into the device so that others can upload it

- Use of the material in the central databases will sometimes be based upon a fee, and sometimes be free, according to decisions made by the database provider and the people and instances furnishing the databases with produced material or books.

These developments will provide for a more democratic distribution of books written by authors and other produced materials. Any person that write a book will be able to publish the book without it being accepted by a redactorial unit before publication.

In some way the future is here allready. Amazon Kindle and iPad are a new generation of elctronic booklike communication and computer devices. These devices and the central database services behind the devices do not still have the full capabilities listed, but these are gradually developed and brought to the market.

For the time being the central book databases are owned by Amason and Applem but gradually there will appear many such book databases fthat can be freely used by any author or instance to diribute own produced books.

The standard books with text and still pictures will still exist, but videos, music and interactive program units will steadily more be integrated into electronic books.



ABOUT ENCYCLOPEDIAS (encyclopaedias)

An encyclopedia is a compendium of a certain size that is ment to encompass all knowledge in the world or all knowledge of a certain field. The compendium is divided in articles about each object treated. The articles are each constructed such that they can be read and understood separately, without reading other articles before or after.

Encyclopedias often contain guides on how to do a variety of things, as well as embedded dictionaries and gazetteers.

The articles in an encyclopedia are ordered in a predetermined way so that they can easily be searched out and found. The articles in most encyclopedias are ordered alphabetically, but they can be ordered in another lexical or numerical way. Som encyclopedias have an organization in hierarcical categories.

In addition to the primary organization, there may be several secondary modes of organizations as cross references, references by keywords and in encyclopedias on modern electronic media also keyword search or free text search.

In order to comprehend all knowledge in the size available, most of the knowledge in the articles must be generalized to a certain level. Knoweledge and detailles of a finer level can only be included when they are especially imortant for understanding the subjct as a whole or as examples.

Traditionally encyclopedias was contained in traditional book volumes. They have contained written text graphical pictures and photographs. Nowadays encyclopedias are found as online services, sold on CDs or DVD and can be installed on private PC or servers. This new mediums allow modern encyclopedias to contain live music and video movies in addition to rigid elements as text and images. They also allow them to contain advanced functions for search by keywords, text combined with disambuigation help.

Traditional encyclopedias are written by experts in the various fields and have rigorous routines for professional and language quality.

The newest development are encyclopedias that are built up and edited by the users, so called wikis. Such encyclopeadias, of which the Wikipedia is the best known, are continually edited and improved by users that include their own knowledge into the database. Such encyclopedias have the advantage of being updated very swiftly.

They also have the advantage of including information that is not yet fully proven, but that can be of value for some people. They have however the problem of articles with various quality levels, with various sizes and depth of information, and it is not always easy to judge weather information is correct or not.

The future development of online encyclopedias will be articles consisting of three main areas. The first area is written by engaged experts and is subjected to rigorousl quality control. The second area will be free to edit for everyone, and can contain additional information. In the third areas users can leave comments and corrections to be concidered by the official editors of the encyclopedia.

By now general software systems for organizing, maintaining, publishing and editing encyclopedias has been developed and can be bought or resceived on tha market. They are generally based on web technology with general database systems in the bottom. In this way organizations or people can build up their own private encyclopedias. Wikipedia and other wikis are maintained by means of such general software.

Software for publishing encyclopedias on mobile telephones or wap-units is also available by now, and many publishers of encyclopedias offer a mobile service in addition to the traditional web version.

Encyclopedias were developed in the 18th century from dictionaries. Dictionaries show the orthographic writing or a term, show some flectional detailles and a simple definition. The need for more detaiiled explanations were often felt, and this gave the idea of developing the dictionaries into treatises with fuller knowledge.

The pioneers of the first encyclopedias often had a wider idealistic aim. They wanted to preserve all information for the benefit of coming generations so that new development of knowledge could be based upon allready available knowledge in a smooth way and all knowledge be accessible for everyone that needed the knowledge.

The English-language Encyclopædia Britannica and German Brockhaus are well-known examples of general encyclopedias. Examples of encyclopedias with a particular cultural, ethnic, or national perspective are the Great Soviet Encyclopedia or Encyclopaedia Judaica.

Encyclopedias of special professional fields, as for example medical encyclopedias, may have the aim of comprehending all information known on that field at a given time.

Many people use search engines as a sort of encyclopedia of everything in the world. The web contain after all knowledge of everything. However, the result you get from search engines are not allways what you expect. You get material containing certain words or word combination, but it is not given that much of that material really are articles about the subjects indicated by the words you use, and it is sometimes difficult to get material with the quality you want.

There is by now efforts going on to make search engines that behave in a more encyclopedia like fashion. The great search engines like google and yahoo are moving in that direction, by adding functionallity that make them suitable as a sort of ecyclopedia. AskTheBrain.com is another effort to make a web-based encyclopedia that uses material that is allready on the web and present it in a way that is most useful for a knowledge seeker.
