|9781904313014 Ito, Toyo Phaidon Press Ltd. |
This is a comprehensive monograph on the Japanese architect Toyo Ito, one of the most influential figures on the contemporary architectural scene. Born in 1941, Ito started his professional career in the early 1970s with residential buildings and in the following decade was awarded his first important public commissions. Since the 1990s he has been invited to participate, all over the world, in the most important architectural competitions, including the hotly debated plan for the enlargement of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Toyo Ito has, since the 1970s, been carrying out research into building materials, light and space-research that has led him to design buildings which he himself has defined as "non material". These aerial structures, fluid and permeable spaces, avoid rigid compositional geometries. Over the years, Ito has gradually simplified his language, and his works, the obvious structure of which has increasingly disappeared, can be studied as a series of variations on the layering of the facade. His "obsession" with lightness and transparency are expressed to the full in the most important work of his creative career, the Sendai Mediatheque (1995-2001). Through a striking series of illustrations, this book presents the Japanese architect's most significant projects, starting with the Aluminium House of 1970-1 through to the most recent project for the Mahler 4 office block in Amsterdam (2000-1). The appendix includes a complete list of Toyo Ito's works, a selection of his writings, most of them originally published in Japanese, as well as a biographical summary.

Many researchers and professionals need to be able to measure, assess and interpret human growth between birth and adulthood. However, much of the methodology is scattered in diverse literature. Human Growth: Assessment and Interpretation provides a complete reference to the field for all those who measure and assess child growth. It emphasises the interpretation of growth data taking into account the adjusted effects of influences such as genes, hormones and substance abuse during pregnancy, gives descriptions of normal and abnormal growth patterns, and of variant growth patterns such as failure-to-thrive and catch-up growth. Including methods to measure size and maturity, the judgement and interpretation of recorded data, evaluations of influences on growth and the significance of abnormal growth, it will be an essential source of information for pediatricians, human biologists, health workers, nutritionists, epidemiologists and others who are responsible for the health and welfare of children.

|9780192629609 Addington-Ha Palliative Care for non-cancer Patients.2001 Oxford Academ |
The specialty of palliative care has traditionally grown out of oncology and there has been little research into the needs of patients dying from causes other than cancer. Few non-cancer patients receive hospice in-patient, home care or day care although a good proportion of hospices say that their services are available to non-cancer patients. As a result, the importance of palliative care for non-cancer patients is now being increasingly recognized internationally, and in the UK a committee reporting to the Department of Health recommended that palliative care should be accessible to all patients who need such care. Palliative Care for Non-Cancer Patients considers the needs and experiences of patients dying from, for example, stroke, heart disease or dementia by,drawing on a range of disciplines and specialties in medicine. The provision of palliative care for patients dying from causes other than cancer raises a number of important questions for policy makers and purchasers. This book summarizes what is known about the needs of and appropriate service provision for people dying of causes other than cancer and begins to set a research agenda.

Geoffrey Hosking has been one of the foremost historians of Russia and her Empire for more than twenty years. He traces Russia's history from the settlement of Kiev through to the present day. He argues that two nation-building movements, one based on a messianic vision of Russia's destiny as God's people, the other a modernising and expansive imperial project of administration and assimilation, have clashed since the rise of Tsarism. These two nascent national identities offer a chance to compare & trace continuities in Tsarist and Soviet Russia & allow us to appreciate more fully the recurrent themes that have at times, and not least this century, appeared wholly without precedent in the history of the world.

|9781402029844 Jain S. Moha Protocol for Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants Springer |
Earlier, we edited a well received series on "Somatic embryogenesis in woody trees", volumes 1 to 6. These volumes provided readers detailed extensive reviews on somatic embryogenesis of important angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species; an excellent source of information for newcomers or those already engaged in research. However, these book volumes did not cover stepwise "detailed protocols" for inducing somatic embryogenesis. This book contains 46 chapters, divided into 4 sections : A) 12 chapters on conifers, B) 14 chapters on fruits, C) 14 chapters on angiosperms, and D) 6 chapters on histology, bioencapsulation, protoplasts, cryopreservation, double staining and thin cell layer sectioning. The book provides stepwise protocols for somatic embryogenesis of a range of selected woody plants in order to assist researchers to initiate somatic embryogenic cultures without too much alteration in protocols. Each chapter provides information on initiation and maintenance of embryogenic cultures; somatic embryo development, maturation, and germination; acclimatization and field transfer of somatic seedlings. Some chapters include applications of somatic embryogenic cultures, e.g. protoplasts, encapsulation, cryopreservation, genetic transformation, genetic fidelity with molecular markers, and bioreactor.

|9780300095562 Natter Oskar Kokoschka Yale University Press |
Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980) is one of Austria's finest Expressionist artists. His paintings are renowned and admired for their vivid colour and restless energy.
This book focuses on the early portraits that Kokoschka painted in Vienna and Berlin on the eve of World War I.
Perhaps the best known and most highly esteemed of all his
works, these portraits are examples of Kokoschka's use of ecaggeration and distortion of colour to convey deep emotioni and psychological tension. they also present a look at many of
the important intellectual figures of the era, for their subjects include Peter Altenbery, Adolf Loos, Alma Mahler and Kokoschka himself (in his "Self Portrait as Knight Errant"). This
illustrated book includes not only these oil portraits but also some of Kokoschka's drawings of the same sitters and a selection of the postcards, fans and posters he made for the Wiener
Werkstatte in the period before the portraits were completed, all of which shed light on his early development.
There are also discussions on the culture and history of Vienna
and Berlin in the pre-war period; Kokoschka's shift from Art Nouveau to Expressionism; his place within the German and Austrian Expressionist movements; his reception in the United
States; and more. This book is the catalogue for a major exhibition that opens at the Neue galerie, New York on 15th March 2002 and runs until 10th June. The show then travels to the
Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany from 4th July to 29th September 2002.

|9780300105810 Bikker Willem Drost (1633-1659) Yale University Press |
Willem Drost was one of Rembrandt's most gifted pupils, and he is also considered one of the most mysterious. This book, the first ever devoted to this
exceptional artist, unravels many of the mysteries of Drost's life and career. Curator and art historian Jonathan Bikker offers not only new archival evidence of the artist's date and place
of death but also a new assessment of Drost's place in the Rembrandt workshop and in the Venetian art world of the mid-seventeenth century.
Drost emerges as one of
Rembrandt's most talented imitators and, despite his short career, an artist with a variety of faces. The book features a meticulously researched and fully illustrated catalogue raisonne
with 38 paintings now attributed to Drost (several formerly attributed to Rembrandt) and 35 other paintings today known only from old sale catalogues or reproductions. The author also
discusses 32 paintings he rejects as Drost's work.

|9780805850376 Rhea Paul Language Disorders From a Developmental Perspective. Essays in Honor of Robin S. Chapman. Taylor&Francis |
The last 25 years have witnessed an explosion of research at the intersection of typical language development and child language disorders. A pioneer in
bringing these fields of study together is Robin S. Chapman, Emerita, University of Wisconsin.
This contributed volume honors her with chapters written by former students and
colleagues, who track in their own research the theme of psycholinguistic contributions to our understanding of the nature and remediation of child language disorders. In this volume,
such renowned researchers in child language development as Dorothy Bishop, Judith Johnston, Ray Kent, among others, discuss their research in certain populations in the context of
the significance of, limits of, and alternatives to Robin Chapman's developmental interactionist perspective. Studies of disordered language in Down's Syndrome and Specific Language
Impairment, in particular, attribute much progress in our understanding of the pragmatic and comprehension skills in these populations to the developmental perspective.
"Language Disorders From a Developmental Perspective" opens with a reprint of Robin Chapman's seminal 2001 article from "The Journal of Child Psychiatry and Psychology". It
concludes with a new chapter from Dr. Chapman summarizing what we know and what we don't know about language disorders within the developmental framework, and pointing to
future areas of research and intervention.
Clinicians as well as scholars will benefit from this book, as will students in programs of developmental psycholinguistics, child
language disorders, and learning disabilities.

|9780521030786 Edited by Ba Europe s Postwar Recovery Cambridge Academ |
Western Europe’s recovery from World War II was nothing short of miraculous. From the chaos of the war and the crisis of 1947, Europe moved directly to the most rapid quarter-century of economic growth in her history. The contributors to this volume seek to identify the sources of this singularly successful recovery. That all European countries shared in the miracle suggests that its roots may lie at the international level. The chapters therefore focus on the role played by international institutions - the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Payments Union, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade - and weigh the relative importance of domestic and international factors in Europe’s postwar recovery. This book will be of interest to students of modern European history and to economists interested in economic growth, European economic integration, and reform of the Bretton Woods institutions.
|9780521850049 Tony Claydon Europe and the Making of England, 1660–1760 Cambridge Academ |
Wide-ranging and original re-interpretation of English history and national identity during the vital century (1660–1760) in which the country emerged as the leading world power and developed its peculiarly free political culture. Disputing the insular and xenophobic image of the English in the period, and denying that this was an age of secularisation, Tony Claydon demonstrates instead the country's active participation in a 'protestant international' and its deep attachment to a European 'Christendom'. He shows how these outward-looking identities shaped key developments by generating a profound sense of duty to God's foreign faithful. The English built a world-beating state by intervening abroad to defend Christendom and the reformation, and their politics were forged as they debated different understandings of these international entities. England may have diverged from continental norms in this period but this book shows that it did so because of its intense religious engagement with that continent.

|9781847202604 O brien The Development of Monetary Economics a Modern Perspective on Monetary Controversies Edward Elgar Publishers |
The literature of monetary economics has been characterised by controversy and changes in the received wisdom throughout its history. The controversies
have related not merely to the effects on incomes and prices of changes in the money supply, but even to the question of whether causality runs from money to incomes and prices or
vice versa. This book begins with the pioneering work of the sixteenth century French writer Jean Bodin, followed by the celebrated John Law, and John Locke (and his eighteenth
It considers both the theory and the evidence involved in the controversy between the Currency and Banking schools. Closely related to this was the work of
two writers, Thomas Joplin and Walter Bagehot, both of whom provided perspectives strikingly different from those of the main controversialists and, in so doing, advanced the subject
of monetary economics. The book seeks, through the examination of monetary controversies, to provide an historical perspective on modern understanding of monetary
It will be essential reading for economists with an interest in monetary economics and the history of economic thought.

is the unpredictable criticism from her father.
Frequently berated for breaking any of Dad's hyper-fussy house rules, as well as for her lack of looks, confidence and friends,
Beauty lives in uneasy fear whenever Dad's at home. Her pretty, sweet mum is equally subject to Dad's tirades. Eventually, after an unbearable birthday party and a very real fear that
Dad's temper is out of control, Mum and Beauty run away.
Very soon Mum and Beauty find themselves in an idyllic seaside resort where their new-found freedom and a
moment of culinary inspiration give them a hobby, an income and even a new nickname for Beauty. Soon all Beauty's dreams come true - and she deserves it! This is a charming,
page-turning and heart-warming story from this beloved author.

In the modern era, techniques are still being invented by which man can portray the three-dimensional world on a flat surface.

Over 80 colour plates of some of the most significant maps ever made detail important advances in the portrayal of three dimensions in map form. The final section of the book contains 20 plates presenting a revolutionary cartographic technique that allows viewers wearing ordinary 3-D glasses to view planetary surfaces without distortion. This invention, developed by the authors with Dr Russell Ambroziak and named "Infinite Perspective Projection" is in use by NASA and the US Department of Defense.

|9780821223451 Roy C Balthus Hachette Book Group |
Although not part of any contemporary painting trend, Count Balthasar Klossowski de Rola, better known as Balthus, has been gradually gaining recognition for his work over the past 20 years - particularly since an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1983. Often characterized as brooding and intense, his work is known for its figural representations, primarily women and children, within seemingly commonplace interiors which, upon closer inspection, reveal undercurrents of eroticism, despair and instability. This candid monograph by a lifelong friend, reveals much about the artist's life and reproduces many of his paintings.

|9780714832425 Cooper The Cubist Epoch Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Cubism originated in Paris between 19 and 19O8 and was the creation of Picasso and Braque, a Spaniard and a Frenchman. Within four years, however, the pictorial methods and technical innovations of these two young painters had been seized on by other artists in France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Russia and England. Thus Cubism, the first fundamental reevaluation since the Renaissance of what artists should record in their works of art and how they should do it, rapidly became the most influential movement in Western art in the first half of the 20th century, continuing to affect the pictorial method of most major artists until the 1940s. This book was first published to accompany a major exhibition curated by the author at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in 1970. Douglas Cooper had himself known well the principal protagonists in the Cubist Movement, owned works by them and written extensively on the subject. The exhibition was mounted when many of the artists, dealers, writers and collectors who created and furthered the development of Cubism were still alive to act as primary documentary sources. It brought together from the collections of Europe and America Cubist paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints to present for the first time a vivid compendium of Cubism as an historic and aesthetic achievement which transformed the visual world of the 20th century. This re-issue of the book not only presents a record of an epoch-making show, but provides an authoritative, informative and lively introduction to all aspects of Cubist art by its foremost historian.

|9781861540683 General Knowledge - Stephen Bayley Thames & Hudson |
This volume gathers Stephen Bayley's collected writings on design. Since the late 1970s, Bayley has advised Sir Terence Conran, created the influential Boilerhouse Project at the Victoria and Albert Museum, directed London's Design Museum and advised the Labour government. His journalism, although best known for covering taste and design in the widest meaning of the words, has also delved into a much wider range of issues related to popular culture, car culture, art and society. The book groups early academic pieces, essays from exhibition catalogues and book extracts with his better known lighter journalism to give a shaped overview of his writings as a coherent body of work that has grown around key themes. In doing so, the book also reveals the changing role of design in the past two decades from being the subject of purely professional interest to a mainstream interest and even a government concern. Bayley prefaces certain pieces with retrospective comments on their context and aftermath.

|9780122007316 Protein Targeting ,Transport & Transloc Elsevier Science |
Proteins are constantly being made within our cells and must be transported either out of the cell or to different compartments within the cell. They contain intrinsic signals that mediate their targeting, transport and translocation. These signals can be compared to post codes which ensure that a persons luggage reaches the correct destination. A number of human hereditary diseases, such as primary hyperoxaluria, which causes kidney stones are caused by errors in these signals and transport mechanisms. The cells' machinery can also be used to produce important drugs. Written by experts in the field, Protein Targeting Transport and Translocation provides a current and exciting synthesis of this fast-moving, and hot topic. It includes a spectacular colour plate section. It is a must for researchers working in all areas of protein science including protein targeting, secretion, folding, assembly, structure, localisation, quality control, degradation and antigen presentation. Essential reading for senior undergraduate/ postgraduate students studying biochemistry, protein science, cell biology, molecular biology, biophysics, biotechnology, microbiology, chemistry and pharmacology.
