This is a satirical look at the present day through the eyes of two stepbrothers in their forties. Michel is a researcher who lives like a monk, having renounced sex, and spends his spare time browsing the supermarket. Bruno is a professor, mass porn consumer, misogynist, racist, and expert in resentment.

Half-brothers Michel and Bruno have a mother in common but little else. Michel is a molecular biologist, a thinker and idealist, a man with no erotic life to speak of and little in the way of human society. Bruno, by contrast, is a libertine, though more in theory than in practice, his endless lust is all too rarely reciprocated. Both are symptomatic members of our atomised society, where religion has given way to shallow 'new age' philosophies and love to meaningless sexual connections. Atomised tells the stories of the two brothers, but the real subject of the novel is the dismantling of contemporary society and its assumptions, its political incorrectness, and its caustic and penetrating asides on everything from anthropology to the problem pages of girls' magazines. A dissection of modern lives and loves. By turns funny, acid, infuriating, didactic, touching and visceral.

2 classic books for the price of 1: Vintage Satire is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes ofGulliver's Travelsby Jonathan Swift and Michel Houellebecq's controversial bestsellerAtomised. Vintage Satire is just one of ten Vintage Classic Twins to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination. Gulliver's Travels: In the course of his famous travels, Gulliver is captured by miniature people who wage war on each other because of religious disagreement over how to crack eggs, is sexually assaulted by giants, visits a floating island, and decides that the society of horses is better than that of his fellow man. Swift's tough, filthy and incisive satire has much to say about the state of the world today and is presented here in its unexpurgated entirety. Atomised: Half-brothers Michel and Bruno have a mother in common but little else. Michel is a molecular biologist, a thinker and idealist, a man with no erotic life to speak of and little in the way of human society. Bruno, by contrast, is a libertine, though more in theory than in practice, his endless lust is all too rarely reciprocated.

Metal injection molding combines the most useful characteristics of powder metallurgy and plastic injection molding to facilitate the production of small, complex-shaped metal components with outstanding mechanical properties. The Handbook of metal injection molding provides an authoritative guide to this important technology and its applications. Part one discusses the fundamentals of the metal injection molding process with chapters on topics such as component design, important powder characteristics, compound manufacture, tooling design, molding optimization, debinding, and sintering. Part two provides a detailed review of quality issues, including feedstock characterisation, modeling and simulation, methods to qualify a MIM process, common defects and carbon content control. Special metal injection molding processes are the focus of part three, which provides comprehensive coverage of micro components, two material/two color structures, and porous metal techniques. Finally, part four explores metal injection molding of particular materials, including stainless steels, titanium and titanium alloys, thermal management alloys, high speed tool steels, heavy alloys, refractory metals, hard metals and soft magnetic alloys. With its distinguished editor and expert team of international contributors, the Handbook of metal injection molding is an essential guide for all those involved in the high-volume manufacture of small precision parts, across a wide range of high-tech industries such as microelectronics, biomedical and aerospace engineering. Provides an authoritative guide to metal injection molding and its applications Discusses the fundamentals of the metal injection molding processes and covers topics such as component design, important powder characteristics, compound manufacture, tooling design, molding optimization, debinding, and sintering Comprehensively examines quality issues such as feedstock characterization, modeling and simulation, common defects and carbon content control

This third edition of Metal Powders: A Global Survey of Production, Applications and Markets has been completely revised and updated to include information available up to mid-June 2000. The main purpose of the report is to review the manufacture, applications and markets for the metal and alloy powders of most commercial significance. As a result, the bulk of the report deals with ferrous powders (iron and steel, stainless steels and high alloy tool steels). Most of the non-ferrous metals and alloys are also reviewed, including aluminium, copper, nickel, cobalt, and the refractory metals tungsten and molybdenum.

The machinability of powder metallurgy steels is lower compared with wrought steels of appropriate composition and/or mechanical properties. This is due to a larger number of material and processing variables affecting the final properties of sintered materials. The aim of the book is to present knowledge for an overview of all interacting factors in machining, including those applied for improving machinability. They include the properties of basic plain iron and alloyed powders, various additions, compacting and sintering conditions. The effect of porosity, individual alloying elements and microstructure is considered.

Annotation The first five chapters in this manual for users and manufacturers of FIA technology describe the principles and properties of detection methods, including molecular and atomic spectroscopy detection methods, electrochemical methods, enzymatic methods and immunoassays, and photoacoustic spectroscopic detection. Chapters six and seven cover on-line sample processing and speciation analysis. Chapter eight (the longest chapter) discusses applications of flow injection methods in routine analysis, including environmental applications and analysis of food products and biological and mineral materials, clinical analysis, pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications, and process analysis. The last three chapters cover sequential and batch injection techniques, review commercially available instrumentation, and discuss current trends in developments of flow analysis.
