Technology permeates almost every dimension of our lives. But who controls technological development? Can technology cause social inequality? And how will technology continue to affect lives in the digital era? Technology and Social Power provides a fresh examination of the role of technology in our society. Bringing together critical, classical and contemporary social theories, it fully examines everything you need to know about the sociology of technology. From the invention of the modern toothbrush to the design of Google, the book uses relevant examples to give useful insights into the social dimension of everyday technology. With clear definitions of key terms alongside a well-balanced approach to the most important empirical and theoretical work in the field, this book provides a clear and thorough account of the subject. Making complex ideas accessible, it is invaluable reading for all students seeking to understand the role of technology in our society today, and its likely impact in the future.

World Bank Discussion Paper No. 373. This discussion paper constructs a consistent, nationwide poverty profile of Cambodia to support the governments effort to strengthen the design of poverty reduction policies. Basic data are given on the level and distribution of living standards as measured by per capita household consumption expenditures. The authors use the Socioeconomic Survey of Cambodia (SESC) of 1993-94 to estimate poverty measures and make poverty comparisons for Cambodia.

★ABOUT THE BOOK: A book on this subject in the manner in which it has been presented was long over due. Almost every engineering industry uses fluid power products in one form or the other and there are not many books around to expose practicing engineers, technicians and students to the art and science of this vital technology. The author has made conscious efforts to enable the reader with degree or diploma level education to master this technology by emphasizing less on what he has already been taught and more on what he needs to know. This book therefore in itself is sufficient to understand and master the basic industrial hydraulic system. There are many number of illustrations, circuit diagrams and solved problems. In application engineering the author explains and justifies the system design and the hydraulic components chosen to per form a particular task. ★OUTSTANDING FEATURES: -Proven and working Hydraulic machine circuits explained in simple terms. -The art of day-to-day maintenance and trouble shooting of hydraulic machinery explained in simple terms. -Three appendixes cover all the vital information. ★RECOMMENDATIONS: A textbook in S.I. UNITS and recommend for all Engineering Branches, Competitive Examination, ICS, and AMIE Examinations. ★ABOUT THE AUTHOR Prof. Ram. S. Srivatsa Formerly Chief Engineer, Southern Industrials, Joint Director Govt. of India; Design Engineer, Sundaram Clayton Ltd. Presently, Consultant, Fluid Power Technology.

Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology is poised to take its place as one of the major contributors to the future clean energy mix. Using straightforward manufacturing processes, CSP technology capitalises on conventional power generation cycles, whilst cost effectively matching supply and demand though the integration of thermal energy storage. Concentrating solar power technology provides a comprehensive review of this exciting technology, from the fundamental science to systems design, development and applications. Part one introduces fundamental principles of concentrating solar power systems. Site selection and feasibility analysis are discussed, alongside socio-economic and environmental assessments. Part two focuses on technologies including linear Fresnel reflector technology, parabolic-trough, central tower and parabolic dish concentrating solar power systems, and concentrating photovoltaic systems. Thermal energy storage, hybridization with fossil fuel power plants and the long-term market potential of CSP technology are explored. Part three goes on to discuss optimisation, improvements and applications. Topics discussed include absorber materials for solar thermal receivers, design optimisation through integrated techno-economic modelling, heliostat size optimisation, heat flux and temperature measurement technologies, concentrating solar heating and cooling for industrial processes, and solar fuels and industrial solar chemistry. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Concentrating solar power technology is an essential guide for all those involved or interested in the design, production, development, optimisation and application of CSP technology, including renewable energy engineers and consultants, environmental governmental departments, solar thermal equipment manufacturers, researchers and academics.
