ABOUT THE BOOK:This book tells a fascinating story of one of physics today: the discovery of primary building blocks of matter. This field of science is called particle or high-energy physics and is one of the frontiers of present-day physical research. How is it possible to detect particles a hundred thousand times smaller than the atom, which itself is many times smaller than an apple as the apple is smaller than the Earth? How can we follow motion of particles that have velocity almost that of light? How can we measure the lifetime of these particles when it is of the order of 0.00000000000000000000001 second? What kind of clock can we use? How can we investigate the properties of these astonishing and elusive bits of matter? All these and many other questions are comprehensively answered in this book written for the layman by the late Dr. Gersten Kopylov, who was a prominent scientist, well known in the world of particle physics. This book was written to be understood even by readers having only a secondary school education and it requires a knowledge of only elementary algebra and geometry. Nevertheless in the authorís treatment, the material is no way oversimplified or distorted.

|Elementary Textbook On Physics Edited by G. S. Landsberg
IN THREE VOLUMES
Translated from the Russian by Natalia Wadhwa, MIR PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
1988 English Translation, Revised from the 1985 Russian Edition, Hard Bound, 560 Pages (Volume 1), 448 Pages (Volume 2) ISBN's 5-03-000223-5 5-03-000224-3 5-03-000225-1 5030002235 5030002243 5030002251.
ABOUT THE BOOK: These three volumes form a course on elementary physics that has become very popular in the Soviet Union. Each section was written by an authority in the appropriate field, while the overall unity and editing was supervised by Academician G.S. Landsberg (1890-1957). This textbook has gone through ten Russian editions and a great deal of effort went into the last edition to introduce SI units and change the terminology and notation for the physical units. A feature of this course is the relatively small number of formulas and mathematical manipulations. Instead, attention was focussed on explaining physical phenomena in such a way as to combine scientific rigour and a form understandable to school children. Another aspect of the text is the technological application of the physical laws. These features make the text a world-class textbook. For students preparing to enter universities and colleges to study physics, and for those at high schools specialising in physics.

This two-volume richly illustrated work on human anatomy is the first English translation of the Soviet textbook by M. Prives, N. Lysenkov, and V. Bushkovich. Unique in its analytic and synthetic approaches to the subject, the book covers descriptive, evolutionary, functional and practical anatomy. The human organism is studied in depth as the product of long and continuing evolution, and both traditional anatomy and new directions in anatomical science are treated fully. The clear and detailed discussions of the influence of sports and various occupations on the human body will be of particular interest.
Volume I covers the following subjects: the history of anatomy, the science of bones and their articulations, myology, the science of viscera, and the science of the organs of internal secretion.
Volume II deals with the anatomy of the heart and blood-vascular system, the lymphatic system, the organs of haemopoiesis and immunological reactions, the nervous system and the sense organs. The phylogenesis and ontogenesis of the organs are discussed in detail. The effect of social factors on the structure of the organism is described. The importance of the principle of integrity in anatomy is stressed, namely that anatomy is a science of the structure not only of the separate systems but of the whole human organism. The description of the structure of the human body is supplemented by synthesis of the anatomical data as a result of which the human organism is represented as an integrity, a complex system of interrelationship of components and processes. The textbook is intended for anatomists and university students.

Translated from the Russian by Vladimir Shokurov, MIR PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
1986 English Translation, Revised from the 1982 Russian Edition, Hard Bound, 438 Pages.
ABOUT THE BOOK: This textbook like the rest of the series is compiled from lectures delivered by the author to students at Moscow State University. The audience was made up of final year students and postgraduates, and as a consequence, a certain level of knowledge (for example, the properties of manifolds) is assumed. The lectures fall into five parts. The first covers the basic concepts of Lie groups, Lie algebras, and the Lie algebra of a given Lie group. The second part deals with "locality theory", ihe third generalizes these Ideas. The first three sections could be used as a foundation course in Lie algebras for beginners. The fourth part considers Lie subgroups and Lie factor groups. The final part has a purely algebraic character, and is practically independent of the preceding four parts; it considers a proof of Ado's theorem, which is interesting in itself. This book will be useful for mathematics students taking courses in Lie algebras, because it contains all the major results and proofs in compact and accessible form.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: M, Postnlkov received his doctor's degree (Phyi.-Math.) In 1954, from 1955 to 1960 was Professor of the Higher Algebra Department (Moscow State University) and since 1945 he has been Professor of the University's Department of Higher Geometry and Topology. He is a senior research worker at the Steklov Institute of Mathematics. In 1961 Prof. Postnikov was awarded Lenin Prize for a series of works on the Homotopy Theory of Continuous Maps. He is the author of several monographs and textbooks some of which have been translated into foreign languages.

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).

1987 English Translation of the 1984 Russian Edition, Soft Bound, 215 Pages.
ABOUT THE BOOK: An historical survey of our ideas about space, time and gravitation. In three chapters, the authors consider how space and time were perceived from ancient times to the present (as marked by the publication of Einsteinís theory of relativity) how they are now perceived, and finally how this field of mathematics and physics might develop in the future. Although there are many presentations of our current understanding of this subject on the market, the topics covered in the second chapter of the book are not those usually examined. However, the main difference between this and other popularizations is the third chapter, in which the authors try get to grips with subjects such as cosmological singularities, generalizations of Einsteinís gravitational theory, the quantization of gravitational fields, and the dimensionality of space-time. Written for students and professionals specializing in physics or related sciences.

1988 Printing of the 1984 Russian Translation, Hard Bound, 190 Pages, ISBN 5-03-00124-2, 503001242.
ABOUT THE BOOK: This text is divided into two major parts. The aim of the first part is to convince the reader that the random world begins directly in his or her own living room because, in fact, all modern life is based on probability. The first part is on the concept of probability and considers making decisions in conflict situations, optimizing queues, games, and the control of various processes, and doing random searches. The second part of this text shows how fundamental chance is in nature using the probabilistic laws of modern physics and biology as examples. Elements of quantum mechanics are also involved, and this allows the author to demonstrate how probabilistic laws are basic to microscopic phenomena. The idea is that the reader, passing from the first part of the book to the second one, would see that probability is not only around us but is at the basis of everything.

|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

In January 1985, the 125th birth anniversary of the world-famous Russian writer, Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), was celebrated in the Soviet Union.
Chekhov's name rightly stands beside those of Lev Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Chekhov hated tyranny, falsehood, the complacency of the "strong" and the humility of the "weak" and attacked vulgarity in all its forms. Most of all, he valued truth, human dignity and moral beauty.
Between 1918 and 1985, books by Chekhov have been published in the Soviet Union 1.726 times in editions totalling 145 million 300 thousand copies in 92 languages spoken by the peoples of the USSR and other countries all over the world.
"I only wanted to tell people honestly and frankly: Look at yourselves and see how badly and tediously you live," wrote Chekhov. "The main thing is that people should understand this, and when they do, they will surely make another and better life For themselves... It will be entirely different and not like the one they live at present,"

|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

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

|The Impatient Ones by Yuri Trifonov
Translated from the Russian by Robert Daglish, Designed by Pyotr Pinkisevich
1978 English Translation, Progress Publishers, Moscow, Hard Bound, With Illustrations, 488 Pages.
The gifted Soviet writer Yuri Trifonov, a State Prize winner, is well known for two novels The Quenching of the Thirst and Students, a trilogy of novellas The Exchange, A Preliminary Summing Up and The Long Goodbye, and numerous short stories.
He has long been interested in historical subjects. His Reflection from a Fire (1966) looked back at the revolutionary past and his most recent historical novel The Impatient Ones (1972) tells the story of the legendary Andrei Zhelyabov (1850-1881), one of the leaders of the Peopleís Will movement, and his comrades. "They displayed the greatest self-sacrifice", Lenin said of the members of the Peopleís Will, "and ... astonished the world. Undoubtedly these sacrifices were not in vain; undoubtedly they promoted, directly or indirectly, the subsequent revolutionary education of the Russian people."
In a preface to the novel the well-known Soviet literary critic Alexander Svobodin describes the authorís life and work.

|Mikhail Sholokhov, Collected works in Eight Volumes.
Volume 8: They Fought for their Country (A Novel) and The Fate of a Man (A Story)
Translated from the Russian by Robert Daglish, Designed by Alexei Ostromensky, Covel Illustration by Boris Alimov
1984 English Translation, Raduga Publishers, Moscow, Hard Bound, 294 Pages.
(From the Afterword) In this volume you will have read the novel that Mikhail Sholokhov began writing and serializing in the periodical press during the Second World War, and also the famous story he produced some ten years after the war. In March 1939, just two years and three months before Hitler's armies invaded the Soviet Union, when the shadow of world war had begun to loom menacingly over the Soviet people's joy and sense of achievement, Sholokhov made a speech that had powerful reverberations across the country. His words engraved themselves on the public memory like a vow. Speaking at the 18th Party Congress, he said that Soviet writers were no pacifists. If the enemy attacked, they would put aside the pen and take up a different weapon. 'In the units of the Red Army, under its glorious banners, we will beat the enemy as no one has ever beaten them before... And when we have beaten them, we shall write books about how we did it. And these books will be useful to our people and remain as a lasting lesson to any aggressor that happens to have survived...'

|The Road to Life, Parts 1 and 2 by A. S. Makarenko
(An Epic of Education)
Translated from the Russian by Ivy and Tatiana Litvinov, Progress Publishers, Moscow, (Progress Soviet Authors Library).
Fourth Priting 1973, Hard Bound, Part I, 275 Pages, Part II, 453 Pages.
... After the October Revolution unprecedented possibilities opened up before me. These possibilities went to our heads, and, to be quite honest, we pedagogues came up with a lot of half-baked theories in our enthusiasm.... I was put in charge of a colony for juvenile delinquents. The task confronting me was so difficult and so urgent that there was no time for indulging in half-baked theories. Nor did I have anything to guide me. The old experience of colonies for juvenile delinquents was no use to me, and there was no new experience and no books. I was in a difficult, almost hopeless position.
I could not find any "scientific" solutions. So I was forced to turn to my general ideas about man and for me that meant turning to Gorky. I need not have re-read his books, because I knew them very well, but nevertheless I read them aJJ again from cover to cover. And I would still recommend the young educationalist to read Gorky.
In the autumn of 1920, when the Civil War was not yet quite over and life was only just beginning to settle down to normal, the Department of Public Education gave Anton Semyonovich Makarenko, then a young schoolteacher, the task of organizing a colony for homeless children and juvenile delinquents. The Gorky Colony, as it was called from 1921, collected strays whose parents had been killed in the Civil War, or had died from epidemics and hunger. Reforming these difficult youngsters and making honest, worthy citizens of them became the cause of Makarenko's whole life. In the course of his practical activity he evolved his own novel system of education which has placed him among the world's outstanding educators.
Being a gifted writer, Makarenko was able to set out his educational theory in fictional literary form, thereby making it known to the world reading public at large. The seven-volume collection of his works includes several novels, short stories, plays and film scenarios. Makarenko's most popular books are The Road to Life, Learning to Live,and Book for Parents.
Makarenko took almost ten years (1925-1935) to write his The Road to Life, and in a letter to Gorky he wrote: "This work means everything to me." The book is based on facts, and there is nothing fictitious, in it except for a few names and situations. The boys and girls described in it grew up to be teachers, doctors, aircraft designers, and other useful members of society. There are dozens of books in which the careers of Makarenko's charges have been traced, thus making a sequel to The Road to Life.
From all the recollections about him Makarenko emerges as a man of action, a fighter, and thinker. "You are an amazing man, a giant of a man," Gorky once said to him. "It's people like you that Russia needs."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The name of Alexander Fadeyev (1901-1956) is well-known in many countries of the world. He is the author of the novels The Rout and The Last of the Udeghe about the Civil War in Siberia in 1918-1920. He wrote The Rout when he was twenty-five years old, and became famous overnight. The Young Guard he wrote when he was forty-four. Immediately after the liberation of the Ukraine from the Nazi invaders, Fadeyev went to Krasnodon where hot on the heels of events he studied the documents relating to the immortal feat of the Young Guard underground organisation. He put his all into the book, everything he had accumulated in his mind, everything he had emotionally experienced and suffered in his heart. Several years ago two youth papers- the Molodoi Leninets in the Soviet city of Kaluga and the Freies Vort in the GDR made a sociological analysis, the purpose of which was to elucidate what books were most popular with young readers today. Among the books named were Fadeyev's The Young Guard, Nikolai Ostrovsky's How the Steel Was Tempered, and Boris Polevoi's The Story of a Real Man.

|The Lay of the Warfare Waged by Igor
Translated into Modern Russian by Dmitry Likhachov, Translated from Old Russian into English by Irina Petrova,
Illustrated by Vladimir Favorsky, 1981, Hard Bound, 124 Pages, PROGRESS PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
About the Book :The Lay of the Warfare Waged by Igor was written as long ago as in 1187, but time has not muted its patriotic appeal or dimmed ils brilliant colours. Interest in The Lay, far from slackening, is actually growing wider and deeper.
Why is this not very long epic poem enjoying such a long life? Why do the ideas it carries and the writing itself continue to move us till this day?
The Lay was first published in the autumn of 1800. The manuscript had been acquired a few years previously by Count Alexei Musin-Pushkin, a well-known collector and lover of Russian antiquities. True, it was not the original author's text, but one of the copies made by a scribe in the 16th century and included in a collection of old Russian secular writings. And it was this collection that Musin-Pushkin bought among other manuscripts through a commission agent from Archimandrite Joel of the since closed down Spasso-Yaroslavsky Monastery.
Mere than a thousand investigations have been published since The Lay first appeared in print. And research continues.

|Malachite Casket by Pavel Bazhov
Tales from the Urals
Translated from the Russian by Eve Manning, Illustrated by Viktor Kirillov
English Translation, 1981, Hard Bound, 220 Pages, PROGRESS PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
About This Book and Its Author: The Malachite Casket, a delightful collection of tales, is being re-published for the centenary of the birth of the author, Pavel Bazhov (1879-1950). Bazhov spent many years collecting the legends, traditions and sayings which he later wove into this collection which well merits the description "something different". In the music of Urals speech, characters-real and fantastic -come to life: the Mistress of the Copper Mountain who guards its wealth, the Great Serpent with its trail of gold, and skilful artist-craftsmen to whom the secrets of the mountain depths and of their craft are open. The Malachite Casket is rightly regarded as a classic. It has served as the theme for sculptured groups, Sergei Prokofiev drew from it inspiration for his ballet "The Flower of Stone", and it has provided the themes for operas, symphonies and films. In the present collection we offer twenty of the best stories, taking the reader back to the times of old, the joy of craftsmanship and the rich colours of folk fantasy.
TRANSLATOR'S NOTE: Perhaps the most frustrating thing in translating a work of this kind is the inevitable loss of vivid local colour. The Malachite Casket is written in Urals dialect, dynamic and rhythmical, as rich in association as the singsong of the Scottish Highlands, the "broad" speech of Yorkshire or the drawl of Kentucky. Although I have made every effort to recapture the spirit of the original, in returning to the Russian text I am conscious that it is still but a pale copy. I offer it therefore with apologies.

|Maths with Mummy by V. Zhitomirsky, L. Shevrin
Translated by Diana Miller, Edited by Katherine Hamilton, Illustrated by M. Romadin and B. Chuprygin
English Translation, 1980, Hard Bound, 200 Pages, ISBN: 5-05-001159-0 5050011590, RADUGA PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
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.

|Miracles on Wheels by Anatoly Markusha
(A Book for Inquiring Minds)
Translated from the Russian by Graham Whittaker, Illustrated by Boris Lavrov
English Translation, 1987, Hard Bound, 206 Pages, ISBN: 5-05-001165-5 5050011655, RADUGA PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
About This Book and Its Author:This book has been written not only for budding engineers and mechanics; it is addressed to anyone who is thinking of becoming closely involved with machines and technology at any level, to anyone who is interested in the history of technology, or who likes to solve absorbing puzzles and make useful things with their own hands. In short, Miracles on Wheels is a book for inquiring minds.
The title of the book was chosen because our world literally runs on wheels, the wheels of cars, lorries and trains, and the wheels turning inside millions of machines. Wheels have a complex and dramatic history, a history which is also the history of technology.
Anatoly Markusha has written more than fifty books, and he never tires of telling young people about technology's past and present, about its development, its achievements and the prospects for its future. He always tries to help the young reader share his enthusiasm, and he explains how to master technology and find a common language with machines.
Before he began writing books, Anatoly Markusha had been a reporter for an evening newspaper, he was a fighler pilot during the war and he gained a qualification as a test-pilot. After his health forbade him to continue flying, he began working as a mechanic. It was then that he started his first book, entitled You Have Take-off.
He has now been writing books for over twenty years and his works have been published in over a dozen languages, both in the Soviet Union and abroad, with a total output of around ten million copies. And always, in every book, the author returns to his main theme of Man and Machine. For him the world of technology is not merely a world of amazing machines, it is also a world of restless and thinking people who make great demands both on themselves and on others. The author calls on young people not to delay, not to put off their entry into this remarkable world. And his books help his young readers to make their choice and to find their way in an active and interesting life.

"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, Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Volumes 1 to 45
Only 20 out of 45 volumes are left in stock.
Marx and Engles, PROGRESS PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
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.

|The Nature of Science by V. Ilyin, A. Kalinkin
An Epistemological Analysis.
Translated from the Russian by Sergei Syrovatkin, Designed by Vladmir Achkanov.
1988, English translation of the revised Russian text, PROGRESS PUBLISHERS, MOSCOW.
Hard Bound, 254 Pages, ISBN 5-01-000503-4 5010005034
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.
