In August 1988. the Sixth International Coral Reef Symposium was held in Townsville resulting in an influx of most of the world's coral reef sCientists to the city. We seized this opportunity at the Australian Institute of Marine Science to run a small workshop immediately before the symposium on the outbreaks of the crown-of-thorns starfish. Aeanthaster planei. We invited that small band of mathematicians who had been modelling the phenomenon, (and who may not have normally attended an international meeting so thoroughly dedicated to natural science) to meet with those SCientists who had been been actively working on the phenomenon in the field. John Casti notes in his delightful new book Alternate Realities (Wiley, 1989): 'If the natural role of the experimenter is to generate new observables by which we know the processes of Nature, and the natural role of the mathematician is to generate new formal structures by which we can represent these processes. then the system SCientist finds his niche by serving as a broker between the two. ' I think our book shows the fruits of that brokerage through the wide range of models explored within its pages. the high level of collaboration and interaction across disciplines evident in the individual papers, and in the emerging synthesis that reflects a far deeper understanding of this complex phenomenon than was possible even a few years ago.

This, the sixth title in the Official History of the Royal Regiment of Artillery new series, takes a thorough and comprehensive look at the part played by the Gunners in the war against Japan. The Regiment was ill-equiped in the quality and quantity of its guns and in its readiness to fight in the jungle. The story of the loss of Hong Kong, Malaya, Singapore, the Netherlands, East Indies and Burna to a well equipped, trained and prepared opponent is a dark one, but illuminated time and again by the gallantry of the men who served the guns. The fight back, unsuccessful to begin with, followed by the arrival of more and better guns, the institution of thorough training and the tremendous contribution of gunners from India, led to victory at last. Many men saw themselves as part of The Forgotten Army: this book demonstrates that they are by no means forgotten.

When Beatrice Graham is caught spying on a meeting between an influential senator and a powerful Arab prince, the Institute is left with no choice but to act quickly to protect both the naive eighteen-year-old intern and the secret she unwittingly overheard. Once she has been taken into the Institute’s custody, it isn’t long before Beatrice is naked and blushing as she is thoroughly and intimately examined. After the humiliating ordeal reveals her long-hidden need to be mastered properly by a dominant man, she is sold as a concubine to Diyab al-Rashan, the handsome sheikh on whom she so recently eavesdropped. Diyab promptly sets about training Beatrice, teaching her to offer her beautiful body for him to enjoy in any way he pleases and spanking her bare bottom soundly whenever she disobeys him. Her new owner’s stern punishments and fierce lovemaking leave Beatrice deeply ashamed yet satisfied in a way she never dreamed possible, but can she truly find a place for herself in the sheikh’s household? Publisher’s Note: Tamed by the Sheikh is the eleventh book of The Institute Series. The books of The Institute Series are stand-alone novels which can be read in any order. Tamed by the Sheikh includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
