Prentice Hall

Prentice Hall is a major educational publisher owned by Pearson plc. Prentice Hall publishes print and digital content for the higher-education market. Prentice Hall distributes its technical titles through the Safari Books Online e-reference service. On October 13, 1913, law professor Charles Gerstenberg and his student Richard Ettinger founded Prentice Hall. Gerstenberg and Ettinger took their mothers' maiden names—Prentice and Hall—to name their new company. Prentice Hall became known as a publisher of trade books by authors such as Norman Vincent Peale. Prentice Hall was acquired by Gulf+Western in 1984, became part of that company's publishing division Simon & Schuster. S&S sold several Prentice Hall subsidiaries: Deltak and Resource Systems were sold to National Education Center. Reston Publishing was closed. In 1989, Prentice Hall Information Services was sold to Macmillan Inc.. In 1990, Prentice Hall Press, a trade book publisher, was moved to Simon & Schuster Trade and Prentice Hall's reference & travel was moved to Simon & Schuster's mass market unit.

Publication of trade books ended in 1991. In 1994, Gulf+Western successor Paramount was sold to Viacom. Prentice Hall Legal & Financial Services was sold to CDB Infotek. Wolters Kluwer acquired Prentice Hall Business. Simon & Schuster's educational division, including Prentice Hall, was sold to Pearson by G+W successor Viacom in 1998. Prentice Hall is the publisher of Magruder's American Government as well as Biology by Ken Miller and Joe Levine, their artificial intelligence series includes Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Stuart J. Russell and Peter Norvig and ANSI Common Lisp by Paul Graham, they published the well-known computer programming book The C Programming Language by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie and Operating Systems: Design and Implementation by Andrew S. Tanenbaum. Other titles include Dennis Nolan's Big Pig, Monster Bubbles: A Counting Book, Wizard McBean and his Flying Machine, Witch Bazooza, Llama Beans, The Joy of Chickens. A Prentice Hall subsidiary, Reston Publishing, was in the foreground of technical-book publishing when microcomputers were first becoming available.

It was still unclear who would be buying and using "personal computers," and the scarcity of useful software and instruction created a publishing market niche whose target audience yet had to be defined. In the spirit of the pioneers who made PCs possible, Reston Publishing's editors addressed non-technical users with the reassuring, mildly experimental, Computer Anatomy for Beginners by Marlin Ouverson of People's Computer Company, they followed with a collection of books, by and for programmers, building a stalwart list of titles relied on by many in the first generation of microcomputers users.

Susila Budhi Dharma

Susila Budhi Dharma is a book written by Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, the founder of the World Subud Association, in the city of Jogjakarta, Indonesia, in 1952. Its name corresponds to the three main qualities that are to be developed through the training in the Subud path; the name "Subud" is a contraction of these three Javanese words of Sanskrit derivation. The book refers to the series of experiences that practitioners of the Subud'latihan' may go through in the process of training their inner feeling in practical life, it describes how one can feel the various influences of the forces that accompany human beings in this world, i.e. material, animal and "ordinary human" forces. The book discusses how, through awareness of their influences upon the inner feeling, it is possible to integrate and be in harmony with these forces, which were provided to humanity for living in this world, to be no longer dominated by them, through the support of the Great Life Force; the book explains many examples of.

Situations are described whereby a person may feel and'receive' what occurs in the inner feeling when approaching this or that circumstance. This represents'training' in how to understand the various indications so that human beings may be able to deal with the pressure of the life forces and develop their human qualities and faculties. Subuh's writing illustrates how humans come to be in thrall to material things which they own or desire, it offers an explanation as to why inner conflicts arise and how people can so be swept up by impulses and emotions inconsistent with humane action. In the book the various "life forces" which struggle for dominance within a person's consciousness are referred to as "Nafsu"; the book is not intended to be a teaching but to indicate what one might experience as a result of the continued practice of the latihan. "Susila" is said to represent a quality of human beings which enables their behaviour to be'noble' because they are conscious of what is right and what is wrong.

"Budhi" is said to be part of God's authority, placed inside every creature. When this Budhi is directed voluntarily by people in the direction of God's will their lives will be blessed. "Dharma" is said to be the projection in practical human life of God's blessing. Accordingly, various forms of human activity, including business, education, health and so on, may become outer expressions of the grace that humanity has received within, thereby engendering welfare and happiness. Pak Subuh called this "True Human Culture"; the word dharma is central to both Hindu and Buddhist thought, the term Budhi shares a root with the word Buddha. Although the author described himself as a conventional Muslim, the book's name chimes with ancient Indian wisdom; this is consistent with the Wayang stories whose characters and parables Subuh refers to in his earlier talks. The book was written in High-Javanese language and Kawi, it was reputedly received in the form of a poem, accompanied by traditional Javanese melodies.

It was recommended by Pak Subuh as being for only Subud members to read, since people who have not experienced the latihan of Subud might try to understand the book in an analytical way, yet be unable to relate it to their own direct experiences. There is some discussion about this as the Subud association does not aim to be secretive, but wants to avoid making unverifiable claims; the book was intended as an optional supplementary guide for people undertaking their own spiritual journey.
