A warm, witty and wildly romantic read set in the sizzling south of France. When Cat Hayes impulsively marries a handsome, penniless French waiter in St Tropez, she didn't realise she'd be widowed in just a few weeks. Neither did she know that her late husband was actually Oliver Ducasse, heir to the Ducasse perfume empire.
Patrick Suskind's Perfume follows the life of
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, abandoned at birth in the slums of
eighteenth-century Paris, but blessed with an outstanding sense of
smell. This gift enables Jean-Baptiste to master the art of perfume
making, but one scent evades him: that of a virgin, whom he must
possess to ensure her innocence and beauty are preserved. Laced with
sense and suspense, this is a beguiling tale of lust, desire and deadly
The dynamic systems approach is a rapidly expanding advancement in the study of developmental research and especially in the domain of adolescent development. It examines the processesof adolescent development and of howadolescents change, and provides knowledge that cannot be gained by the common ways of studying development. However, new techniques are required for this innovative study of developmental processes and there is a great need for a handbook that helps social scientists to translate dynamic systems conceptualizations into empirical research. This edited book provides both theoretical and technical knowledge about the application of dynamic systems theory in such a way that the readers will be able to implement this approach themselves. The first part discusses descriptive techniques that describe and assess specific process characteristics such as variability, sudden jumps and attractor states. The second part explores the different techniques for building a dynamic systems model, which can simulate the behaviour of a system to investigate the mechanisms behind the processes. Each chapter describes one technique and is based on a specific practical example of its application in adolescent development. This book is ideal for researchers who study development who are not statistical or methodological specialists. It provides a clear step-for-step description of theories and techniques that are designed for the study of developmental processes.
