|9781876907112 Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man: Mas V Cb Images |
Dennis Lau and NG Chun Man Architects and Engineers' (DLN's) architecture is characterised by its diversity in design language. There is no pre-determined or standardised architectural style stamped upon its work. DLN upholds a firm belief that architecture should be more than just building design. Each project is recognised as having a constructive urban role in the environment and urban fabric of the city as a whole. The positive engagement of buildings with their contexts is considered more important than the creation of stylised or fashionable forms that sacrifice urban priorities for aesthetic goals. DLN buildings are an integral part of city life and contribute a sense of humanity and a better living environment for the occupants, the neighbours and passersby. In a congested city like Hong Kong, this is an invaluable asset. Buildings featured include: The Golden Centre Star TV Broadcasting Centre Central Plaza Festival Walk The Harbour Front The Master Architect Series V features work of some of the world's leading architects and architectural firms in full colour. Each volume in the series includes an essay by an internationally recognised critic, or an introduction by the master architect. The projects selected for inclusion represent the most significant works from each stage of the architect's career, including works currently in progress. Project descriptions feature the architect's working drawings, plans and renderings, as well as full-colour photographs, many in large format.

|9781904313120 Brunelleschi Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Here, Eugenio Battisti, one of the world's leading experts on the history of Italian architecture, presents the work of Brunelleschi. Brunelleschi studied with passion the forms and technical processes of classical Roman architecture which, along with the invention of perspective, led him to found a rational method for measuring space and to seek an architecture in which each single part is harmoniously blended and in proportion with the whole. This rationalism is the foundation of his language, and marks the entire urban structure of Florence: the colonnade of the Ospedale degli Innocenti (Foundling Hospital), San Lorenzo and the Sacrestia Vecchia, the Chapel dei Pazzi, Santo Spirito, and above all, the ground-breaking solution to the dome of Stanta Maria del Fiore.

|9781859962084 Introduction To Immunocytochemistry Taylor&Francis |
The use of immunocytochemical methods, introduced in the 1950s, has gradually expanded. They are now among the most widely used means of identifying tissue constituents, whether in biological research or for pathological diagnosis. The technique exploits the highly specific reaction between antigen and antibody, by using labelled immune reagents to localize antigens in situ . Ways of preparing tissues for the different methods and according to the antigen to be localized are discussed. The most common methods are described in detail with explanatory diagrams and photomicrographs. More complicated methods are touched on, with a full reference list being provided. Sources of error and non-specificity are pointed out. One chapter deals with recording results photographically. An appendix contains step-by-step practical instructions for many of the basic techniques at light and electron microscopical levels. A newcomer to the field will find enough information to understand the principles of the subject and to be able to produce acceptable results. For this revised edition, the authors have updated the text in the light of the latest developments, and added 20 new references to the literature and a new colour illustration.

|9780521002868 Pete Alcock Work to Welfare Cambridge Academ |
This book provides a new perspective on joblessness among men. During the last twenty years vast numbers of men of working age have moved completely out of the labour market into Сearly retirementТ or Сlong-term sicknessТ and to take on new roles in the household. These trends stand in stark contrast to rising labour market participation among women. Based on an unprecedented range of new research on the detached male workforce in the UK, and located within an international context, the book offers a detailed exploration of the varied financial, family and health circumstances Сdetached menТ are living in. It also challenges conventional assumptions about the boundaries between unemployment, sickness and retirement and the true health of the labour market. Work to Welfare represents an important contribution to debates about the labour market and benefit systems and will be of interest to readers and practitioners in social policy, economics and geography.

|9781852337292 Practical Atlas of Congenital Heart Desease Springer |
Developed to integrate cardiac anatomy with surgical repair by reviewinndividual heart defects within an easy-to-follow reference format, A Practical Atlas of Congenital Heart Disease is designed to allow the reader to examine a congenitally malformed heart while referring to its anatomic and surgical description on a single page spread. Simple line drawings are used to identify the diagnostic anatomic features and to emphasize important surgical landmarks, allowing readers to differentiate the infinitely variable morphology in clinical practice. The anatomic pathologist will also gain an understanding of surgical repairs of postoperative hearts. For virtually every malformation, the position of the specialized conduction tissue is indicated. The book provides examples of malformations and the relevant surgical considerations, reflecting clinical practice: anatomical specimens are shown in the anatomical position, while the surgical figures are shown as they would be seen operatively. This enables the reader to practice mental imaging of the morphologic and spatial relationships that are integral to congenital heart surgery. In addition, some of the illustrated cases and morphology presented in these pages are themselves rare and sometimes unique examples of particular congenital heart malformations.

A dramatic and remarkable narrative of an extraordinary teacher's determination, from the author of the "Sunday Times" bestsellers "The Tiger's Child" and "One Child". Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle - three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatised by the horrors of war; an eleven-year-old boy, who only knew life inside an institution; an excitable girl, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and unable to speak. But Torey's most daunting challenge turns out to be Leslie's mother, a stunning young doctor who soon discovers that she needs Torey's love and help just as much as the children. "Just Another Kid" is a beautiful illustration of nurturing concern, not only for a few emotionally disturbed children, but for one woman facing a personal battle.

|9780415328630 Michael Hoey Lexical Priming Taylor&Francis |
"Lexical Priming "proposes a radical new theory of the lexicon, which amounts to a completely new theory of language based on how words are used in the real world. Here they are not confined to the definitions given to them in dictionaries but instead interact with other words in common patterns of use. Classical theory holds that grammar is generated first and words are then dropped into the opportunities thus created; Hoey's theory reverses the roles of lexis and grammar, arguing that lexis is complexly and systematically structured and that grammar is an outcome of this lexical structure. He shows that the phenomenon of 'collocation', the property of language whereby two or more words seem to appear frequently in each other's company (e.g., 'inevitable' and 'consequence'), offers a clue to the way language is really organised. Using concrete statistical evidence from a corpus of newspaper English, but also referring to travel writing and literary text, the author argues that words are 'primed' for use through our experience with them, so that everything we know about a word is a product of our encounters with it. This knowledge explains how speakers of a language succeed in being fluent, creative and natural.

Anyone with an eye for trends or with an affinity for what's new knows that it is no longer a mortal sin to add decoration to the interior. Until a couple of years
ago, it was just not the done thing to break the clean minimalism with fantasy motifs. Nowadays, decorating a minimalist-looking table with a vibrant ceramic or a colourful textile seems to
be a sign of excellent taste.
Birds with elegant wings, flowers in full bloom, insects which seem to have escaped a fairytale, dripping icicles, Greek Goddesses, baroque curls
and elegant curves are invading the design world. "Forms with Fantasy" investigates and interprets this rampant trend for the first time. Over 100 designers illustrate how minimalism is
becoming increasingly decorated, how they experiment with lace and cut-out techniques and how old styles can be brought up to date again and again.

|9780521673129 Lee Palmer W The Eucharist in the Reformation Cambridge Academ |
The Eucharist in the Reformation: Incarnation and Liturgy takes up the words, Сthis is my bodyТ, Сthis doТ, and Сremembrance of meТ that divided Christendom in the sixteenth century. It traces the different understandings of these simple words and the consequences of those divergent understandings in the delineation of the Lutheran, Reformed, and Catholic traditions: the different formulations of liturgy with their different conceptualizations of the cognitive and collective function of ritual; the different conceptualizations of the relationship between Christ and the living body of the faithful; the different articulations of the relationship between the world of matter and divinity; and the different epistemologies. It argues that the incarnation is at the center of the story of the Reformation and suggests how divergent religious identities were formed.
|9780521803465 David Yearsl Bach and the Meanings of Counterpoint Cambridge Academ |
In Bach's Germany musical counterpoint was an art involving much more than the sophisticated use of advanced compositional techniques. A range of
theological, cultural, social and political meanings attached themselves to the use of complex procedures such as canon and double counterpoint. This book explores the significance
of Bach's counterpoint in a range of interrelated contexts: its use as a means of reflecting on death; its parallels to alchemy; its vexed status in the galant music culture of the first half of
the eighteenth century; its value as a representation of political power; and its central importance in the creation of Bach's image in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Touching on a wide array of contemporary literary, philosophical, critical, and musical texts, the book includes new readings of many of Bach's late works in order to re-evaluate the
status and meaning of counterpoint in Bach's work and legacy.

|9780711227996 Christina Ha Dream Babies Frances Lincoln |
Parents have long been bombarded with conflicting advice on how to bring up their babies: from Locke, Rousseau, and Truby King to Spock, Penelope Leach and Gina Ford. Behaviourist warnings in the 1920s about physical contact ('Never hug and kiss them. Never let them sit in your lap') swung to Jean Liedloff's 'continuum concept' that babies should be wrapped round mum and fed on demand. Today enthusiasts for the 'family bed' are at war with Gina Ford's call for a return to the strict routines of pre-Spock days. Who is right and who is wrong?
In this updated edition of her classic account of how and why the experts' advice has changed with changing times, Christina Hardyment analyses the anxieties of our own age and gives parents much-needed confidence in their own ability to choose the advice that best suits them and their babies.

|9783716512968 Vierny Andre Bauchant: Catalogue Raisonne ACC-distribution titles |
Andre Bauchant (1873-1958) is one of those French artists long known as 'naive painters' for whom the term 'modern primitives' would be more appropriate.
Besides landscapes of the Touraine countryside and pictures of flowers and birds, he painted poetic and mythical visions. A horticulturalist by profession, he did not embark on his
career as a painter until he was 46.
His work is marked by his close affinity with nature and his passion for ancient mythologies. In 1921, Bauchant exhibited for the first time at
the Salon d'Automne in Paris, where he came to the attention of Amedee Ozenfant and Le Corbusier, who became Bauchant's mentor and a passionate collector of his work. Andre
Bauchant's position in the shadow of his far more famous fellow-painter Henri Rousseau is unjustified.
For the first time, this catalogue raisonne offers a comprehensive
overview of Bauchant's art, and thus provides the basis for a re-evaluation.

|9780099111610 Friday Women on Top Random House |
This is a compilation of the many letters sent to the author by women sharing their most intimate sexual fantasies about topics such as masturbation, oral sex, sex with more than one man, lesbian sex and anal sex. In her extended introduction to these erotic fantasies the author compares the fantasies of today's women with those featured in her previous book, "My Secret Garden". She concludes that despite everything the fantasies of the women of the 1990s are more liberated, more experimental and more outrageous than those of the women of the 1970s. She also notes a tendency for younger women to be freer of guilt about explicit sexual fantasizing. Nancy Friday is the author of "Men in Love".

When physicists and others construct models to explain the phenomena and laws of nature, do those models actually simulate whats really out there in the world, or do they only synthesize the way we think the world is? And how does our cultural upbringing affect the way we think about the world? In this far-reaching yet penetrating book, two world-class physicists, one born and raised in the West, the other in the Far East, examine these and many other intriguing questions not yet resolved by modern scientists.

|9780714838366 Chinoiserie Phaidon Press Ltd. |
It was in the 17th century that myths of exotic "Cathay" began to be replaced by more definite knowledge of things Chinese, through the activities of English and Dutch traders. In the 18th century, however, the taste for designs and architecture based on ideas of Chinese design - "Chinoiserie" - became highly fashionable in the French court, and in its many imitators throughout Europe. Ever since, Chinoiserie has been a factor in the decorative arts and interiors throughout Europe and America. This book celebrates the flowering of the style, and, through over 200 images, shows its development through the 19th and into the 20th century. Packed with colour, the book creates a visual source for all those involved with interiors, collecting, architecture and design.
