Fifty-nine percent of the respondents to a 2000 survey
reported that their master-s programs had not adequately
prepared them to conduct research, something that has not
changed much in the ensuing decade. Yet, many library and
information services (LIS) practitioners are routinely
called upon to conducted job-related research. Where can
they turn for the guidance they need?

(Neapolitan novels , book 1).

A modern masterpiece from one of the Italy-s most acclaimed
authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense, and
a generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila.
Ferranti’s inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a
meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation
and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. The story begins in
the 1950s, in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples.
Growing up on these tough streets the two girls learn to rely on each other
ahead of anyone or anything else. As they grow, as their paths repeatedly
diverge and converge, Elena and Lila remain best friends whose
respective destinies are reflected and refracted in the other.

journey of self-discovery. The two young women share a
complex and evolving bond that brings them close at
times, and drives them apart at others. Each vacillates
between hurtful disregard and profound love for the
other. With this complicated and meticulously portrayed
friendship at the center of their emotional lives, the
two girls mature into women, paying the cruel price that
this passage exacts.

The empires of the past were far-flung experiments in
multinationalism and multiculturalism, and have much to
teach us about navigating our own increasingly globalized
and interconnected world. Until now, most recent
scholarship on empires has focused on their subject
peoples. Visions of Empire looks at their rulers,
shedding critical new light on who they were, how they
justified their empires, how they viewed themselves, and
the styles of rule they adopted toward their subjects.

This book examines the longue duree history--from the
early thirteenth century to the twenty-first--of a
particular text, Chachnama, written in Uch Sharif. The
Book of Chach (Chachnama) was written in 1226 CE and
provided an account, in Persian, of the 712 CE conquest
of Sind by the armies of Muhammad bin Qasim. This early
regional history became the foundation for British
colonial efforts to cast Muslim rule in India as one of
despotic foreigners--a rule to be replaced by the
benevolent British one.
