Joe Haining - Editor

Hull, UK

Freelance copy editor, proofreader and consultant. Motivated and creative individual with a passion for writing, language and literature.

Overview

I am a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, a Professional grade member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, with experience across a variety of formats, both publishing and non-publishing. My work has included proofreading or editing books on mathematics, science and politics, as well as a wide range of non-publishing material. This has given me extensive experience in converting texts to make them language appropriate for different English-speaking markets (primarily the UK and North America).

I am a lover of fiction and am excited to get involved with new authors.

Having obtained a degree in English studies and spent several years teaching English to speakers of other languages, I have a passion for the language and for literature. A large proportion of my editorial work has been on texts written by non-native users of English, which my background has helped me to approach with great care and understanding.

I also have experience in writing (mainly sports related) for magazines and websites.

Home-grown Jihad: Understanding Islamist Terrorism in the Us and Uk

Sam Mullins

Based on seven years of original research, this book contains one of the most detailed and comprehensive assessments of 'home-grown' Islamist terrorism (HGIT) in the US and UK to date. Beginning with an examination of the development of militant networks during the 1980s and 1990s, it traces the origins of HGIT and highlights the significance of these early experiences in different countries f... read more

The Cyprus Bail-in: Policy Lessons from the Cyprus Economic Crisis

Alexander Michaelides

On June 28th 2012, the small island of Cyprus became the fifth government to request an economic bail-out from the Eurozone after losing access to international capital markets. Less than a year later, a 10 billion second rescue deal was agreed upon an unprecedented deal that bailed in creditors of Cyprus' two largest banks, and triggered an economic crisis that the nation still struggles to r... read more

From Spinors to Quantum Mechanics

Gerrit Coddens

From Spinors to Quantum Mechanics discusses group theory and its use in quantum mechanics. Chapters 1 to 4 offer an introduction to group theory, and it provides the reader with an exact and clear intuition of what a spinor is, showing that spinors are just a mathematically complete notation for group elements. Chapter 5 contains the first rigorous derivation of the Dirac equation from a simpl... read more

Parameterization of Atmospheric Convection:(In 2 Volumes)Volume 1: Theoretical Background and FormulationVolume 2: Current Issues and New Theories (Series on the Science of Climate Change)

Plant Robert S et al

Precipitating atmospheric convection is fundamental to the Earth's weather and climate. It plays a leading role in the heat, moisture and momentum budgets. Appropriate modelling of convection is thus a prerequisite for reliable numerical weather prediction and climate modelling. The current standard approach is to represent it by subgrid-scale convection parameterization.Parameterization of At... read more
