It's 1962 in Jackson, Mississippi, and Skeeter has just graduated from Ole Miss. At a time and place where the ideal white woman is petite with carefully groomed straight hair and even more carefully groomed manners, Skeeter is tall and outspoken, with curly hair. Her mother wants Skeeter to wed; Skeeter wants to be a journalist. With the help of two of the town's black maids, Skeeter sets out to write a book telling the maids' stories from their point of view. But in Jackson, where a black boy is blinded for accidentally using a whites-only bathroom, and Civil Rights activist Medgar Evers is shot in his driveway in front of his children, this is a dangerous undertaking. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

In recent times the idea of cloaking has become very popular. After radar and sonar were discovered, problems of visibility reduction for physical bodies in air (by electromagnetic waves) or in water (by acoustical waves) have immediately become serious areas of research in physics. New technologies (sensors, actuators) of high spatial-temporal resolution, metamaterials and new computers with fast and accurate calculations, in combination with nontraditional versions of solutions to these boundary problems, have allowed physicists to obtain successful results in some cases. This e-book presents a rare attempt to understand the cloaking problem as a whole. the book should be useful for readers with a strong interest in contemporary problem solving approaches in the physics of waves.
