For the first time, engineering for the packaging industry - and for the biggest packaging user, food processing - is presented in a way that clearly demonstrates its interconnected, globally integrated nature. Food and Package Engineering is a groundbreaking work that serves as a comprehensive guide to the complexities and the potential of the industry.
Packaging draws on nearly every aspect of science, technology, business, social science, and engineering.Ã¿ Rather than present a traditionally linear view of these topics, the author takes a "Packaging Cycle" approach by guiding readers through the life of the package from raw materials and conversion, operations, distribution, retail, all the way to recycling or disposal by the consumer. Ã¿Food and Package Engineering includes many essential topics usually not addressed in other food engineering or packaging texts, including:
ÃºÃ¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿ Raw materials production and conversion
ÃºÃ¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿ Inventory management and production scheduling
ÃºÃ¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿ Regulations, security and food safety
ÃºÃ¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿Ã¿ Recycling and landfill issues
W. J. Mander presents the first ever synoptic history of British Idealism, the philosophical school which dominated English-language philosophy from the 1860s through to the early years of the following century. Offering detailed examination of the origins, growth, development, and decline of this mode of thinking, British Idealism: A History restores to its proper place this now almost wholly forgotten period of philosophical history. Through clear explanation of its characteristic concepts and doctrines, and paying close attention to the published works of its philosophers, the volume provides a full-length history of this vital school for those wishing to fill a gap in their knowledge of the history of British Philosophy, while its detailed notes and bibliography will guide the more dedicated scholar who wishes to examine further their distinctive brand of philosophy. By covering all major philosophers involved in the movement (not merely the most famous ones like Bradley, Green, McTaggart, and Bosanquet but the lesser known figures like the Caird brothers, Henry Jones, A.S.Pringle-Pattison, and R.B.Haldane) and by looking at all branches of philosophy (not just the familiar topics of ethics, political thought, and metaphysics but also the less well documented work on logic, religion, aesthetics, and the history of philosophy), British Idealism: A Historybrings out the movement's complex living pattern of unity and difference; something which other more superficial accounts have tended to obscure.
