• Année après année, Giuseppe Verdi reste le compositeur d'opéras le plus joué dans le monde. Pourtant, peu d'études musicologiques sur son style ont été publiées à ce jour, et encore moins en français. En fait, ce livre, véritable guide d'analyse opératique, est le premier dans toutes les langues qui traite de façon systématique du langage musical du compositeur. En s'appuyant sur les 23 opéras en italien et en mettant en lumière leurs conventions et leurs principes sous-jacents, l'auteur examine méthodiquement les personnages et leurs intrigues au regard de l'écriture musicale et brosse ainsi le portrait d'une oeuvre grandiose. À l'aide de plusieurs exemples, il décrit avec brio la forme musico-dramatique d'un compositeur dont le style unique est, ultimement, au service de la théâtralité. Steven Huebner est musicologue à l'école de musique Schulich de l'Université McGill et titulaire de la chaire James McGill.

    Open Source Software for Digital Forensics is the first book dedicated to the use of FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software) in computer forensics. It presents the motivations for using FLOSS applications as tools for collection, preservation and analysis of digital evidence in computer and network forensics. It also covers, extensively, several forensic FLOSS tools, their origins and evolution.

    Open Source Software for Digital Forensics is based on the OSSCoNF workshop, which was held in Milan, Italy, September 2008 at the World Computing Congress, co-located with OSS 2008. This edited volume is a collection of contributions from researchers and practitioners world wide.

    Open Source Software for Digital Forensics is designed for advanced level students and researchers in computer science as a secondary text and reference book. Computer programmers, software developers, and digital forensics professionals will also find this book to be a valuable asset.

  • Through an interdisciplinary approach, this book explores the phenomenon of artistic migration in Paris during the Third Republic. This allows a comparison of case studies by researchers from different fields, and encourages reflection that goes beyond the disciplinary specializations of music, literature and the visual arts in order to produce a more general understanding of issues related to artistic migration in the French capital. This project offers insight into the formation of national imaginaries, the place occupied by foreigners in the artistic tradition of a territory, and the relationship among nationalism, internationalism, xenophobia and aesthetic judgment. Cultural historians, immigration historians and musicologists, as well as historians of art and literature, are the targeted readers.
    Cet ouvrage explore de façon interdisciplinaire (musique, littérature et arts visuels) la réalité de la migration artistique à Paris sous la Troisième République, donnant ainsi la possibilité à des chercheur(e)s issu(e)s de différents domaines de comparer leurs études de cas, et de formuler des réflexions qui dépassent leur champ de spécialisation en vue d'une compréhension plus générale des enjeux liés à l'immigration artistique à Paris. Ce thème offre une profondeur diachronique - donnée par l'histoire de la culture - aux réflexions actuelles sur la formation interculturelle des imaginaires nationaux, la place occupée par les étrangers dans la tradition artistique d'un territoire, ou encore les rapports entre nationalisme, internationalisme, xénophobie et jugement esthétique. Les historiens culturels, les historiens de l'immigration, les musicologues, les historiens de l'art et de la littérature constituent le large bassin de lecteurs ciblés.

  • This volume of the series was designed to provide a comprehensive primer on the existing best practices and emerging developments in the study and design research on crime and criminology. The work as a whole includes chapters on the measurement of criminal typologies, the offenders, offending and victimization, criminal justice organizations, and specialized measurement techniques. Each chapter is written by experts in the field and they provide an excellent survey of the literature in the relevant area. More importantly, each chapter provides a description of the various methodological and substantive challenges presented in conducting research on these issues and denotes possible solutions to these dilemmas. An emphasis was placed on research that has been conducted outside of the United States and was designed to give the reader a broader more global understanding of the social context of research. The goal of this volume is to provide a definitive reference for professionals in the field, researchers, and students. This volume in the Handbooks in Criminology and Criminal Justice series identifies the principal topical areas of research in this field and summarizes the various methodological and substantive challenges presented in conducting research on these issues. In each chapter, authors provide a summary of the prominent data collection efforts in the topical area, provide an overview of the current methodological work, discuss the challenges in the measurement of central concepts in the subject area, and identify new horizons emerging in data collection and measurement. We encouraged authors to discuss work conducted in an international context and to incorporate discussion of qualitative methodologies when appropriate.
