Part of Alice’s appeal is her ambiguity, which makes possible a range of interpretations in adapting Lewis Carroll’s classic Wonderland stories to various media. Popular re-imaginings of Alice and her topsy-turvy world reveal many ways of eliciting enchantment and shaping make-believe. Late 20th century and 21st century adaptations interact with the source texts and with each other—providing readers with an elaborate fictional universe. This book fully explores today’s multi-media journey to Wonderland.

The discovery of dinosaurs and other large extinct saurians - a term under which the Victorians commonly lumped ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, pterosaurs and their kin - makes exciting reading and has caught the attention of palaeontologists, historians of science and the general public alike. The papers in this collection go beyond the familiar tales about famous fossil hunters and focus on relatively little-known episodes in the discovery and interpretation (from both a scientific and an artistic point of view) of dinosaurs and other inhabitants of the Mesozoic world. They cover a long time span, from the beginnings of modern scientific palaeontology in the 1700s to the present, and deal with many parts of the world, from the Yorkshire coast to Central India, from Bavaria to the Sahara. The characters in these stories include professional palaeontologists and geologists (some of them well-known, others quite obscure), explorers, amateur fossil collectors, and artists, linked together by their interest in Mesozoic creatures.

This book takes the previously separate domains of time/results management, organisational information management and personal effectiveness, and combines their individual advice to produce an interrelated strategy that promotes time savings, efficiency and personal information management. It presents case studies and outlines techniques to simplify managing personal information and explains why people encounter difficulties when they try to organise the volumes of mail, memos, e-mail reports and computer files and publications that arrive daily.
