This guide provides the novice with helpful information to guide them over the hills, while experienced walker is provided with background information.. ., The Scottish Mountaineering Trust, 1979, Ess Ess Publisher, 2006. Hardcover. New. Dr. Jean Anker invited me to write a monograph on the Philosophy of Library classification for his series Library Research Monographs and I accepted the invitation. I now find that it has provided me with an opportunity to straighten in my own mind the principles of library classification on which I had been thinking for some years, The moment which he chose to invite me was one of crisis in my mind My recent visit to Europe and America, which made me contact Dr Anker himself and many other colleagues, helped me to realise the great Demand which is developing in all spheres of thought - pun as well as applied - for documentation service of the most exact and exhaustive kind. It also gave me an opportunity to experience the inadequacy of the existing classificatory technique to meet that demand. The feeling in me has been very similar to what it was when; visited the British Libraries twenty-five years ago. At that time also I experienced the inability of the then known classificatory technique to meet the demands of book-service. It was this which led to the Designing of new foundations for library classification and to; comparative Study leading to the enunciation of the canons and principles of the subject. The present experience has led to the deepening of these founda-tions so as to take the additional load of documentation. So far it has not been possible to find a totally new foundation. All that ha happened is to carry the existing foundations to a deeper level. It is on occasions like this when the foundations of a subject are re-examined and re-designed or deepened that one is led to a study of it general principles. And it is study of this kind which constitutes ii philosophy. For, the sixth meaning of philosophy recorded in the New English dictionary is "The study of the general principles of some particular branch of knowledge, experience or activity". Library classification is surely an activity which has become essential to all librarians who wish to make their libraries an effective agency in the exact and expeditious distribution of all recorded Knowledge among the right consumers. Library classification is also an experience whose profoundness increases with the depth to which it is taken to keep step with the new formations in the field of knowledge, especially in its deeper layers. Library classification has itself become a region of knowledge which has well-defined boundaries. Its Cultivation has an individuality of its own. It calls for specific methods of Investigation and development. It has acquired all the features of a discipline which is entitled to be recognised as a branch of knowledge. There are various branches of knowledge which" have knowledge itself as the object of study. Psychology is one of them. It seeks to explore what happens to the mind and in the mind in building up knowledge. Logic is another which deals with the way in which the Intellect develops the Impressions and Experiences stored in Memory and creates new impressions and experiences which add to knowledge. Epistemology deals with one aspect of the Nature of the knowledge restored and stored in one`s memory : Its sources and validity. Ontology examines another aspect of the nature of knowledge - its Reduction to the minimum number of ultimates and the reality or otherwise of the correlates of knowledge outside the knower`s mind. A fifth branch concerns itself with a description and assorting of the different kinds of knowledge-formations, their interrelations and the distinctive methods of investigation used in them. This I have called the Field of Knowledge. A sixth branch is concerned with the organisation of the specific subjects - macroscopic as well as microscopic - which are recognisable in the field of knowledge, the mode of their arrangement in a helpful order and the development Printed Pages: 134., Ess Ess Publisher, 2006, Ess Ess Publisher, 2006.

Mussolini’s capture and execution by Italian partisans, the suicide of Adolf Hitler, and the fall of the German capital signaled the end of the four-year war in the European Theater. In Five Days That Shocked the World, Nicholas Best thrills readers with the first-person accounts of those who lived through this dramatic time. In this valuable work of history, the author’s special achievement is weaving together the reports of famous and soon-to-be-famous individuals who experienced the war up close. We follow a young Walter Cronkite as he parachutes into Holland with a Canadian troop; photographer Lee Miller capturing the evidence of Nazi atrocities; the future Pope Benedict returning home and hoping not to get caught and shot after deserting his infantry unit; Audrey Hepburn no longer having to fear conscription into a Wehrmacht brothel; and even an SS doctor’s descriptions of a decadent sex orgy in Hitler’s bunker. In skillfully synthesizing these personal narratives, Best creates a compelling chronicle of the five earth-shaking days when Fascism lost it death grip on Europe. With this vivid and fast-paced narrative, the author reaffirms his reputation as an expert on the final days of great wars.....
