Good graphs make complex problems clear. From the weather forecast to the Dow Jones average, graphs are so ubiquitous today that it is hard to imagine a world without them. Yet they are a modern invention. This book is the first to comprehensively plot humankind's fascinating efforts to visualize data, from a key seventeenth-century precursor--England's plague-driven initiative to register vital statistics--right up to the latest advances. In a highly readable, richly illustrated story of invention and inventor that mixes science and politics, intrigue and scandal, revolution and shopping, Howard Wainer validates Thoreau's observation that circumstantial evidence can be quite convincing, as when you find a trout in the milk. The story really begins with the eighteenth-century origins of the art, logic, and methods of data display, which emerged, full-grown, in William Playfair's landmark 1786 trade atlas of England and Wales. The remarkable Scot singlehandedly popularized the atheoretical plotting of data to reveal suggestive patterns--an achievement that foretold the graphic explosion of the nineteenth century, with atlases published across the observational sciences as the language of science moved from words to pictures. Next come succinct chapters illustrating the uses and abuses of this marvelous invention more recently, from a murder trial in Connecticut to the Vietnam War's effect on college admissions. Finally Wainer examines the great twentieth-century polymath John Wilder Tukey's vision of future graphic displays and the resultant methods--methods poised to help us make sense of the torrent of data in our information-laden world.

Raw data is bewildering by itself, it means nothing, it scares and confuses. Human intellect rationalizes the immense continuum of its surroundings by means of categorizations, tables, and timelines. With this concept in mind, this book represents a challenging proposal: it is the attempt to find a cultural pattern for each country of the EU stated on the distinctiveness of the statistics, the arbitrariness of the samples and the persistency of the stereotypes. The rigorous approach treats the supposedly familiar, the obvious, and the obviously curious, in the same way. This book is meant as a search for the hidden and the subtle, setting out on a quest for a bird's eye view, and as a way to heed details, however small. Geo-graphic Europe is a book filled with dazzling trivia and curiosities; it embraces our national identities - in their economical, cultural and political aspects - and delivers them in a fun, informative and immediate way. Contents: Country; Politics and Government; Economy; History; People; Habits and Customs; Morality and Religion; Education; Language and Communication; Arts and Cultural Life.

The overarching contribution of this book is a review and assessment of the current and future impacts of globalization on the world’s forests. The work has been developed by the "Resources for the Future" Task Force for the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO). Four key themes are addressed: the effect of globalization on forests (including future trade flows); plantations as the primary source of forest products and its consequences, including plant breeding and forest health; the effect of new products such as bio-products and markets on forests; and the emergence of forest ecosystem services and their impact on the landscape and human communities. These four themes are examined in detail to map out the impacts of these trends for forests throughout the world and at multiple scales, and how forest research needs to be adapted to address these trends. Overall, the volume provides a major synthesis of current thinking and knowledge on the topic for advanced students, as well as policy-makers and professionals in the forest sector.
