A Handbook for Engineers, Designers and Inventors
by IVAN I. ARTOBOLEVSKY, D.Sc.(Eng.) Member USSR Academy of Sciences,
Translated from the Russian by Nicholas Weinstein, MIR PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW, 1977 Edition.

This multi-volume manual of mechanisms in modern engineering design is the culmination of the author's life work on the theory and classification of mechanisms and is an encyclopaedic presentation of all the mechanisms used in modern engineering practice. The first edition, the four-volume Manual of Mechanisms, published in 1947-52 by the USSR Academy of Sciences, soon became an indispensible handbook for Soviet engineers, designers, and inventors. The new, enlarged manual will be found invaluable in all university and polytechnical departments of mechanical engineering, and in research and development and design organizations and laboratories. In Mechanisms in Modern Engineering Design each mechanism is represented by a diagram of its working principle with a concise description. The mechanisms are classified according to a scheme developed by Prof. Artobolevsky.

The contents of the volumes of this encyclopaedic work are as follows:
Volume 1 Lever Mechanisms. Elements of Mechanisms. Simple Lever Mechanisms. Linkwork.
Volume 2 Parts 1 and 2 Lever Mechanisms. Link-gear Mechanisms. Slider-crank Mechanisms. Lever-cam Mechanisms. Gear-lever Mechanisms. Lever-ratchet Mechanisms. Flexible-link Lever Mechanisms. Elastic-link Lever Mechanisms. Wedge-lever Mechanisms. Lever-screw Mechanisms.
Volume 3 Gear Mechanisms. Simple Gear Mechanisms. Lever-gear Mechanisms. Pin-gear Mechanisms. Ratchet-gear Mechanisms. Cam-gear Mechanisms. Worm-gear Mechanisms. Complex Gear Mechanisms.
Volume 4 Cam and friction, and flexible-link mechanisms.(Contents: Simple Cam Mechanisms, Cam-Lever Mechanisms, Gear-Cam Mechanisms, Cam-Ritchet Mechanisms, Simple Friction Mechanisms, Complex Friction Mechanisms, Simple Flexible-Link Mechanisms and Complex Flexible-Link Mechanisms).
Volume 5 Parts 1 and 2 Hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical devices.

About the Author: Prof. Ivan Artobolevsky, Mem. USSR Acad. Sci., was a leading Soviet engineer in the field of the theory of machines and mechanisms. He took his engineering degree in 1926 at the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy in Moscow, where his father was a professor, studying under Professors V.P. Goryachkin and N. I. Mertsalov. From his studies of the work of Assur, Burmester, Chebyshev, Reuleaux, Somov, Wills, and Zhukovsky, he developed a system of common classification of mechanisms, the rudiments of which are to be found in the work of L. V. Assur on plane mechanisms published in 1914-18. This system subsequently yielded the general method for designing mechanisms that had formed the basis of Prof. Arto-bolevsky's lectures on the theory of machines and mechanisms first at the Moscow Institute of Chemical Engineering and then at the Moscow Aviation Institute. Prof. Artobolevsky's Mechanisms for the Generation of Plane Curves (London, 1964) is already well known to English speaking engineers.

Professor Ivan ARTOBOLEVSKY, in addition to his teaching and research, is active in Soviet public life and an ardent exponent of the spread of science and the promotion of international scientific and cultural relations. He is a deputy of the Supreme Soviet and member of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. He is the President of the USSR Znanie Society (The USSR Society for the Dissemination of Scientific and Political Knowledge), the Soviet counterpart of the British and American and other Associations for the Advancement of Science, a Vice-President of the World Federation of Scientific Workers, and an officer or council member of many Soviet scientific and engineering professional bodies, including the USSR Academy of Sciences and the USSR Council of Scientific and Technical Societies. He is also a Vice-President of the Institute of Soviet-American Relations, and a member of the Council of the Union of Soviet Societies for Friendship and Cultural Relations. Prof. Artobolevsky has been honoured many times for his scientific and public activities. He has three times received the highest award of the Soviet Union, the Order of Lenin, and also the honorary title of Hero of Socialist Labour. He has also been awarded the Chebyshev Prize of the USSR Academy of Sciences (1946), the Joliot-Curie Silver Medal of the World Council of Peace (1959), the Silver Medal for Services in the Development of Science and Society of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (I960), and the James Watt Medal of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (1967).

Radio Transmitter Design, edited by Vagan V. Shakhgildyan

Translated from the Russian by Boris Kuznetsov, MIR PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
1987 Printing of the Revised 1984 Russian Edition, Hard Bound, 488 Pages.

When doing his design study, the student often runs into difficulties because the transmitter design poses a multitude of problems varying in complexity and in the matters involved. It is the objective of this book to help him overcome these difficulties, specially as regards the design of the most critical sections and circuits of a transmitter. In the simpler cases the authors refer the student to other published sources. Thus, this is not a stand-alone book, and it could hardly have been so. For one thing, it would be unreasonable even to try to cover all the problems arising in radio transmitter design the more so that any of these problems can be solved in more than one way. For another, no attempt has been made to give all the data on tubes, transistors, and other hardware. Rather, the book outlines general approaches and basic guidelines for transmitter design (the choice of a circuit configuration, element values, operating conditions, etc.) and includes a sizeable number of design equations and tables with a word of caution-as to their applicability. Also the authors have presumed that the reader will have a working knowledge of radio transmitter theory, so many relations and equations are given without derivation or proof.

(Contents: An Outline of Transmitter Design, Calculation of Operating Conditions for the Tube and Transistorized Amplifier Stages of Transmitters, Low-Frequency and Medium-Frequency Radio Transmitters, High-Frequency Radio Broadcasting Transmitters, Calculation of Operating Conditions for the Stages of AM Broadcasting Radio Transmitters, Modulators for Radio Broadcasting Transmitters, Single-Sideband HF Transmitters, Radio Transmitter Exciters, VHF UHF and SHF Power Amplifiers and Oscillators, Coaxial Resonators, VHF and UHF Television Picture Transmitters, FM Radio Broadcasting and Television Sound Transmitters, Klystron Transmitters for Tropospheric Scatter and Satellite Communications and Television, Transmitters for Microwave Radio Relay Systems).

Anna Karenina by Lev Tolstoy
Books 1 & 2, Eight Parts in Two Voulmes, Translated by Margaret Wetlin, Illustrated by Orest Vereisky

Third Printing, 1987 Raduga Publishers, Moscow, Hard Bound, 518+438 pages, ISBN 5-05-001571-5, 5-05-001573-1, 5-05-001572-3, 5050015715, 5050015731, 5050015723

A distinguishing feature of Anna Karenina is the novel's trueness of life. The readers recognised themselves and their contemporaries in its characters and found a response in it to all the most important events of that time. It was one of the most complex periods in Russian history, when, after the abolition of serfdom, in Tolstoy's own words, "everything had been overturned and was only just beginning to fall into place"-the activities of the Zemstvos, the military reforms, education, the reaction of Russian society to the struggle of the Slav peoples for liberation from the Turkish yoke and so on, together with the more specific and personal details of life at various levels of Moscow and St. Petersburg society and of the Russian countryside.

"This novel, which is precisely that-a novel, the first in my life, has really gripped me, I am wholly absorbed in it..." Tolstoy wrote in May 1873 as he began Anna Karenina. Contemporaries were struck by the "every-dayness" of the book that followed War and Peace. Here Tolstoy combined free and unfettered narrative with a view of life integrally his own. Ivan Goncharov, the patriarch of Russian novelists, said about it: "This is something quite without precedent, a pioneering work. Is there any writer among us who can match it? And who in Europe can offer anything of the kind?" It was an opinion endorsed by Dostoyevsky who found in Tolstoy's novel "a tremendous psychological handling of the human soul" and a realism of portrayal such as had never been seen before. Time has confirmed these contemporary judgements. Anna Karenina has become one of the greatest social novels in world literature.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky found in Anna Karenina "everything of any importance in our currant Russian political and social issues, and concentrated in one place." Vladimir Korolenko, wrote: "Tolstoy's world is a world flooded with sunlight, simple and bright, in which all the reflections, in size, proportion and light and shade, correspond to the phenomena of reality."

I did not hesitate to name Anna Karenina the greatest social novel of all time-Thomas Mann
He sees the world from behind the scenes of politics and society, whilst most of us are sitting to be gulled in the pit-George Bernard Shaw
If a man could but write like Tolstoy and have all the world listen to him! -Theodore Dreiser

The Government Inspector and Selected Stories by Nikolai Gogol
The Government Inspector, Comedy in Five Acts, Translated by Christopher English and Gordon Mcdougall, Selected Stories Translated by Christopher English

Designed by Pyotr Ivashchenko. 1989 Raduga Publishers, Moscow, Hard Bound, 318 pages, ISBN 5-05-002437-4, 5050024374

In The Government Inspector I decided to gather in one pile all the bad in Russia of which I was then aware, all the injustices which are committed in those places, and on those occasions where justice above all is demanded of man, and at the same time, to laugh at everything. -Nikolai Gogol

Gogol was a strange creature, but genius is always strange; it is only your healthy second-rater who seems to the grateful reader to be a wise old friend, nicely developing the reader's own notions of life. Great literature skirts the irrational. "Hamlet" is the wild dream of a neurotic scholar. Gogol's "The Overcoat" (in our edition "The Greatcoat"-Ed.) is a grotesque and grim nightmare making black holes in the dim pattern of life. The superficial reader of that story will merely see in it the heavy frolics of an extravagant buffoon; the solemn reader will take for granted that Gogol's prime intention was to denounce the horrors of Russian bureaucracy. But neither the person who wants a good laugh, nor the person who craves for books "that make one think" will understand what "The Overcoat" is really about. Give me the creative reader; this is a tale for him. Steady Pushkin, matter-of-fact Tolstoy, restrained Chekhov have all had their moments of irrational insight which simultaneously blurred the sentence and disclosed a secret meaning worth the sudden focal shift. But with Gogol this shifting is the very basis of his art, so that whenever he tried to write in the round hand of literary tradition and to treat rational ideas in a logical way he lost all trace of talent. When, as in his immortal "Overcoat", he really let himself go and pottered happily on the brink of his private abyss, he became the greatest artist that Russia has yet produced. -Vladimir Nabokov

It has been a long time since the world has produced a writer of such importance for his people, as Gogol was for Russia... He told us who we are, what we lack, what we should aim for, abhor and love. All his life he fought passionately against ignorance and rudeness ... he was fired by a single goal-the thought of serving his country. -Nikolai Chernyshevsky

Maths with Mummy introduces young children to mathematics. What should a child learn during this first introduction? Obviously this basic information must include numbers from one to ten, simple mathematical operations using them, and the main geometrical figures. At the same time the modern approach to teaching mathematics is in favour of extending the range of this traditional information to include new concepts such as multitude, relationship (including comparing numbers of different magnitude) and the unknown. We also believe that this initial stage should teach children to distinguish and classify objects according to different characteristics and to add up these combinations when necessary. Children should also learn to develop simple measurement skills.

"Wild and domestic animals played a tremendously important role in my childhood, since I practically lived among them... And I became an artist and a writer only thanks to the childhood I had, because my impressions of those years were so powerful and fascinating, exciting enough to last me a lifetime," wrote Yevgeny Charushin, a well-known Soviet artist and author of many animal stories for children, a man of rare charm and kindness.
Many of the animals he writes about were the pets and playmates of his son Nikita, who has also become an artist. Many of their books father and son did together, as in the present case: Yevgeny Charushin wrote the text, and Nikita Charushin did the drawings.

Collected Works : Lenin. Volumes 1 to 35

Collected Works, Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Volumes 1 to 45
Only 20 out of 45 volumes are left in stock.
The English-language edition of the Collected Works of Marx and Engels, which is a joint publication of Lawrence & Wishart Ltd., London, International Publishers Co. Inc., New York, and Progress Publishers and the Institute of Marxism-Leninism, Moscow, will include all the works of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels published in their lifetime and a considerable part of their legacy of manuscripts as well as their letters.
The whole edition is planned to comprise fifty volumes, organised into three main groups: (1) philosophical, historical, political, economic and other works, in chronological order; (2) Marx's Capital, with his preliminary versions and works directly connected with it, particularly the Economic Manuscript of 1857-58, better known under the editorial heading Grundrisse der Kritik der Politischen Okonomie; (3) letters of Marx and Engels after they began to work together (August 1844).
The earlier volumes will appear in numerical order. Thereafter the sequence of publication will not necessarily follow that order.
Previously published translations of works of Marx and Engels will be checked and revised for this edition. Many works are, however, being translated into English for the first time. Articles by Marx and Engels written in English for the British and American press of their day will in many cases be republished in English for the first time.

Volume 15, Progress Publishers, 1986, Hard Bound, 778 Pages
Volume 15 contains the works of Marx and Engels written between May 1856 and September 1858, consisting mainly of articles contributed to the New-York Daily Tribune. The volume also contains Marx's work "B. Bauer's Pamphlets on the Collision with Russia", published for the first time in English, and the unfinished Revelations of the Diplomatic History of the 18th Century.
A considerable portion of the articles are devoted to the economic crisis of 1856-57, and illustrate with great clarity Marx's views on capitalist crisis.
Several articles deal with the domestic and foreign policies of the main European powers, particularly Britain and France, and also their expansionist policy in Asia.
The volume contains a large number of articles connected with the Indian popular uprising of 1857-59, as well as two articles by Marx which summarised the course of the fourth Spanish revolution of 1854-56.
In the section "From the Preparatory Materials" Marx's sketch "Venice" appears in English for the first time.

About the Authors: Viktor Ilyin and Anatoli Kalinkin are among the leading scientists of Moscow University specialising in problems of the philosophy of science. Their original works-monographs, pamphlets, and articles-are well-known in the USSR. Viktor Ilyin, Candidate of Philosophy, Associate Professor of Moscow University, has studied the theory of knowledge and the history of science at the Department of Philosophy of that University. He is a major researcher in the field of epistemology. Anatoli Kalinkin, Candidate of Philosophy, Associate Professor of Moscow University, has studied logic and the methodological problems of the humanities. He has obtained some highly important results in this field.
About the Book: What is the nature of science? What are the factors conditioning it? Where lies the boundary between science and the sphere of everyday experience, mythological-poetical, artistic-symbolic thinking, morality, religion, and other areas of the social superstructure? These highly topical issues are discussed in the present volume in the context of a comprehensive discourse on ancient and contemporary science. The authors have closely studied the general and particular criteria of scientificity, the origin of science from pre-scientific forms of knowledge, and the dynamics of scientific rationality at the various stages of mankind's history. Typology of knowledge is worked out, scientific types are characterised and an original conception of the progress of science outlined. This work is the first practically implemented attempt of an all-round analysis of the phenomenon of science as a specific type of conceptual processing of reality, one that is subject to autonomous laws of development and self-change.
