|9780500283813 Cyborg Thames & Hudson |
'Cyborg', from the Greek for 'steersman' combined with 'organism', was coined in the mid-20th century to describe the new human who would be required for space travel - enhanced by mechanical, chemical or electronic means, he or she would be half-human, half-machine. This excitingly-illustrated book discusses the astonishing changes in biotechnology that make the cyborg seem more science fact than science fiction. Soon we could all be Superman or Wonderwoman. What will this mean to us as individuals? How will it affect society? The author reminds us that the yearning for immortality and superpowers is as ancient as the human race; it's just that these now seem within our reach. We are guided on a journey through metamorphoses old and new, fictional and factual - from werewolves to genetic engineering, from Dr Frankenstein to a professor's arm controlled by another's thoughts, from the androids of science fiction to a real robot sensitive to human moods.

|9781904313038 Perrault, Dominique Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Dominique Perrault, born in 1953, is one of the leading figures of contemporary architecture. In addition to the French National Library, one of the most important buildings realized in Paris in the 1990s, Perrault's career features other works of international importance, such as the Berlin Velodrome and Olympic swimming-pool (1992-9), where he masterfully succeeded in blending the architectural structures with the natural environment. In the area of town-planning, Perrault has conceived designs for Nantes, Bordeaux, Berlin and Caen; he also designs furniture and researches new building materials. Major current projects by Perrault are under way for the extension of the Court of Justice of the European Community (Luxemburg) and the multimedia library of Venissieux. This monograph presents, in chronological order, the most important achievements of Perrault, along with several projects for invited international competition. Each project has a complete project description and it is illustrated with photographs and drawings. The illustrations and the concise critical essay by Laurent Stalder should make this book an invaluable tool for discovering and understanding the work of one the most appealing contemporary architects at work today.

|9780300063356 Impressionism in Britain Yale University Press |
A catalogue to the exhibition of Impressionism in Britain held at the Barbican Art Gallery in London in the spring of 1995, this work argues that in the late 19century, Impressionism was far less homogeneous than we recognize today. It defined itself internationally in a series of schools which had all originated through contact with Paris. In Britain, Impressionism involved the English paintings of Monet, Sisley and Degas, as well as the work of such groups as the "London Impressionists" of 1889, the Newlyn and Glasgow schools, and the Impressionist colonies at Walberswick and Staithes. Impressionism was practised and exhibited by such artists as James McNeill Whistler, George Clausen, Stanhope Forbes, John Lavery, John Singer Sargent, Walter Sickert and Philip Wilson Steer. McConkey demonstrates how their persistences moved Victorian painting away from stale classicism and literary anecdote, to a modern British art of colour, light and form, many examples of which are presented in this study.
|9780521644815 Richard J. E Human Molecular Biology Cambridge Academ |
Human Molecular Biology is an introduction to the molecular basis of health and disease for the new generation of life scientists and medical students. By integrating cutting-edge molecular genetics and biochemistry with the latest clinical information, the book weaves a pattern which unifies biology with syndromes, genetic pathways with developmental phenotypes, and protein function with drug action. From the origins of life to the present day, a narrative is traced through the workings of genomes, cells and organ systems, culminating in linking of laboratory technologies to future research horizons. Lavishly illustrated throughout with two-colour diagrams and full colour clinical pictures, this text brings the complexities and breadth of human molecular biology clearly to life. This seamless account breaks through the boundaries between molecular biology and medicine, and leads the reader on to a new dimension where the biological basis of health and disease is inescapably molecular. Human Molecular Biology scooped both the Richard Asher prize for best new textbook and the overall 'Medical Book of the Year' in the Society of Authors and Royal Society of Medicine Medical Book Awards 2003.

|9782880467692 Typo-graphics: The Art and Science of Type Design in Context Rockport/Rotovision |
The fascination of type for typographers and graphic designers alike has always been the interplay between the form, style and shape of the letterform itself and the content, the message that the type carries as it appears on the page. "Typo-Graphics" comes at a time when graphic designers are expanding their understanding of typography and taking a measure of control themselves. It explores the work of 24 typographers, art directors and designers from all over the world who are bringing new graphic and artistic understanding to type design. Radical, provocative, experimental or highly practical, the practitioners featured in the book all share one common idea - that with new tools and technologies, type can be made to work even harder and on more levels than ever before. Displaying an array of imaginative and beautifully crafted work, this volume demonstrates how cultural and commercial context influences type design; how type makes pictures as well as words; and how a new, closer relationship between the practice of graphic design and typography is essential for the profession's progress. It should provide designers a uniquely inspirational and practical understanding of how to take their work forward in a world where clients demand multi-skilled creativity and the pressures of time, cost and technology make that not just possible, but essential.

|9780552771313 Brill Marius Making Love Transworld Publishers |
He was out of her league. She was out of her depth. When Miranda, the Miss Lonely Hearts of Shepherd's Bush, suddenly finds herself romanced by a tall, dark and deadly spy, she finds her life turned upside down. Could it have anything to do with the book she innocently took from the library, a book with a conspiracy theory about 'love' so devastating that every other copy has been destroyed by MI5 and the writer 'disappeared'? Spliced through Miranda's romantic adventure are pages from the 'lost' book itself. But the loudest voice in this piece of postmodern madness belongs to the lovelorn book itself, a sentient mass of paper and ink that cannot help falling in love with its reader. Marius Brill's send-up of po-faced conspiracy stories, spy thrillers and pulp romance is as sharp as Tom Sharpe - imagine Umberto Ecco with a sense of humour. Ludicrously logical and finely spun, this is hare-brained literary fantasy, an erudite romp, and above all, a novel to fall in love with ...

|9780195147575 Bgaron Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child.2003 Oxford Academ |
This essential desk reference will meet the demand for a broad and convenient collection of normative data in child neuropsychology. In a clearly written, well-organized manner, it compiles published and previously unpublished normative data for the neuropsychological tests that are most commonly used with children. Far from being a raw collection, however, it integrates concepts and models central to the neuropsychologicalsessment of children into the discussions of data. All these discussions have a practical, clinical focus. As background, the author considers the current status of child neuropsychology practice, test models, behavioural assessment techniques, observational data, procedures to optimize child evaluation, communication of results through the interpretative session and report writing, and preliminary assessment methods. Then she reviews the tests and data under the broad domains of intelligence, executive function, attention, language, motor and sensory-perceptual function, visuoperceptual, visuospatial and visuoconstructional function, and learning and memory. Written by a seasoned practitioner, this book will be an extraordinary resource for child and developm
|9780631210436 Norman Jones The English Reformation: Religion and Cultural Adaptation Wiley |
Recent debate over the English Reformation has turned around how Catholic the nation was before the Reformation. Most scholars now believe that there was little popular support for the change in religion imposed by Henry VIII. And yet, by the end of Elizabeth's reign England was clearly Protestant. It had abandoned much of its late Medieval culture and replaced it with a new formulation. The book explores how the English, over three generations, adapted to the religious changes and, in the process, radically reconstructed their culture. Using personal histories, the author explores how individuals and the institutions in which they lived and worked, such as families, universities, towns, guilds, and Inns of Court, refashioned themselves in the face of the rapid social, ideological, political and economic changes brought about by the Reformation. Tracing these responses across three generations, the author emphasizes the way generational interaction and self interest interrelated to adapt to new circumstances, creating, by the late-16th century, a multi-theological culture that exalted nationalism and valued the individual conscience.

|9780387986777 Czolczynski, Rotordynamics of Gas-Lubricated Journal Bearing Systems Springer |
Gas bearings have been used to support rotating parts in a wide range of applications - from magnetic recording heads in computer disk drives to gyroscopes and special machine tools. The advantage of gas bearings is the very low viscosity of air compared to that of most oils used in lubrication. As a result, not only is there much less frictional heat to dissipate, but the bearing remains very nearly isothermal. Gas bearings can thus support rotors spinning at much higher rotational velocities than those lubricated with liquids. This book discusses models for the behavior of gas bearings, particularly of the aspects affecting the stability of the system. It begins with a discussion of the mathematical models, identifying the stiffness and damping coefficients, and describing the behavior of the models in unstable regions. It then turns to apply these results to bearings: static characteristics and stability of various rotor systems and an extensive discussion of air rings.

Treating acutely ill patients is one of the most demanding and stressful aspects of being a doctor. Most medical textbooks can only give general details about the treatment, and often the specific specialist advice needed to safely manage these patients is insufficient or patchy. The aim of this book is to provide a single source for doctors to access this information, to give them the confidence that they are treating their patients with the best, most modern treatments available, and to teach them a little on how and why the treatments are working.

This second edition of a very successful vascular surgery text was developed in order to address significant changes that have occurred in contemporary vascular surgery and to highlight new information that has developed regarding vascular imaging, interventional and endovascular procedures. The overall length of the text is slightly shorter than the first edition with relevant core chapters being retained to emphasize the basic science nature of the text, with approximately 60 per cent of the material undergoing major revisions or being new chapters. The significant change from the first text is an emphasis on vascular pathology and physiology that is relevant to current practice including information that is currently included on the vascular board examinations. A new emphasis on endovascular therapies has been added by including five chapters on endovascular techniques and an additional section with six chapters comparing conventional vascular reconstruction to endovascular methods. These new chapters address the most important issue in contemporary vascular surgery, i.e., the role of endovascular methods in treating vascular lesions and the impact that this has on traini and A unique aspect of this book differentiating it from other texts is a comparison of conventional methods with the endovascular techniques. Overall the text provides a comprehensive perspective of contemporary vascular surgery and future perspectives. The authors are preeminent in the field and are most capable for addressing the assigned topics with the goals being to provide an updated and forward looking text that accommodates the needs of practicing and training vascular surgeons.

|9780120887958 Wu, K Switch-Mode Power Converters: Design & Analysis Elsevier Science |
This book introduces an innovative, highly analytical approach to symbolic, closed-form solutions for switched-mode power converter circuits. This is a highly relevant topic to power electronics students and professionals who are involved in the design and analysis of electrical power converters. The author uses extensive equations to explain how solid-state switches convert electrical voltages from one level to another, so that electronic devices (e.g., audio speakers, CD players, DVD players, etc.) can use different voltages more effectively to perform their various functions. Most existing comparable books published as recently as 2002 do not discuss closed-loop operations, nor do they provide either DC closed-loop regulation equations or AC loop gain (stability) formulae. The author Wu, a leading engineer at Lockheed Martin, fills this gap and provides among the first descriptions of how error amplifiers are designed in conjunction with closed-loop bandwidth selection. Benefit to the reader includes: Readers will gain a mathematically rigorous introduction to numerous, closed-form solutions that are readily applicable to the design and development of various switch-mode power converters.
|9780006513780 Patrick O’Br Blue at the Mizzen HarperCollins UK |
Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. All eighteen books are being re-issued in hardback by HarperCollins with stunning new jackets to coincide with a new film based on the adventures, and to introduce these modern classics to a new generation. 'If we had only two or three of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series, we would count ourselves lucky; with six or seven the author would be safely among the greats of historical fiction... This is great writing by an undiminished talent. Now on to Volume Twenty, and the liberation of Chile.' WILLIAM WALDEGRAVE, Literary Review This is the twentieth book in Patrick O'Brian's highly acclaimed, bestselling series chronicling the adventures of lucky Jack Aubrey and his best friend Stephen Maturin, part ship's doctor, part secret agent. The novel's stirring action follows on from that of The Hundred Days. Napoleon's hundred days of freedom and his renewed threat to Europe have ended at Waterloo and Aubrey has finally, as the title suggests, become a blue level admiral. He and Maturin have -- at last -- set sail on their much postponed mission to Chile. Vivid with the salty tang of life at sea, O'Brian's writing is as powerful as ever whether he writes of naval hierarchies, night-actions or the most celebrated fictional friendship since that of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Blue at the Mizzen also brings alive the sights and sounds of revolutionary South America in a story as exciting as any O'Brian has written.

|9780007204434 Bella Bathur Lighthouse Stevensons, The HarperCollins UK |
An exciting new edition of Bella Bathurst's epic story of Robert Louis Stevenson's ancestors and the building of the Scottish coastal lighthouses against impossible odds. 'Whenever I smell salt water, I know that I am not far from one of the works of my ancestors,' wrote Robert Louis Stevenson in 1880. 'When the lights come out at sundown along the shores of Scotland, I am proud to think they burn more brightly for the genius of my father!' Robert Louis Stevenson was the most famous of the Stevensons, but not by any means the most productive. The Lighthouse Stevensons, all four generations of them, built every lighthouse round Scotland, were responsible for a slew of inventions in both construction and optics, and achieved feats of engineering in conditions that would be forbidding even today. The same driven energy which Robert Louis Stevenson put into writing, his ancestors put into lighting the darkness of the seas. The Lighthouse Stevensons is a story of high endeavour, beautifully told; indeed, this was one of the most celebrated works of historical biography in recent memory. 'My own interest in the Lighthouse Stevensons is threefold. Firstly, from the writings of Robert Louis Stevenson, who turned his family's trade into the raw gold of all his best fiction. Secondly, from various trips around Scotland. The country's coast is a mass of storm-beaten rocks and treacherous headlands on which even the seagulls have trouble landing. It is impossible not to speculate what combination of courage and skill built the lighthouses around such an environment. And thirdly, because somewhere in there, unrecognised and unsung, is the most wonderful story!'.

|9780261103559 Tolkien J.R. Finn and Hengest HarperCollins UK |
Tolkien's famous translations and lectures on the story of two fifth-century heroes in northern Europe. Professor J.R.R.Tolkien is most widely known as the author of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings", but he was also a distinguished scholar in the field of Mediaeval English language and literature. His most significant contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies is to be found in his lectures on Finn and Hengest (pronounced Hen-jist), two fifth-century heroes in northern Europe. The story is told in two Old English poems, "Beowulf" and "The Fights at Finnesburg", but told so obscurely and allusively that its interpretation had been a matter of controversy for over 100 years. Bringing his unique combination of philological erudition and poetic imagination to the task, however, Tolkien revealed a classic tragedy of divided loyalties, of vengeance, blood and death. Tolkien's original and persuasive solution of the many problems raised by the story ranged widely through the early history and legend of the Germanic peoples. The story has the added attraction that it describes the events immediately preceding the first Germanic invasion of Britain which was led by Hengest himself. This book will be of interest not only to students of Old English and all those interested in the history of northern Europe and Anglo-Saxon England, but also admirers of "The Lord of the Rings" who will be fascinated to see how Tolkien handled a story which he did not invent.

|9783131417619 Wolf Color Atlas of Dental Hygiene: Periodontology Thieme Verlagsgruppe |
Dental hygiene professionals need the very best scientific and clinical knowledge at their fingertips to effectively assist in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontology puts the needs of hygienists center stage, providing a detailed and brilliantly illustrated reference for daily practice, and a wealth of knowledge to underpin successful diagnosis and treatment.A firm grasp of the pathogenesis of periodontal disease is essential for the hygienist. This book clearly outlines the vital concepts in immunology, genetics and destruction and repair of periodontal tissues. The innovations and new scientific evidence in these fields are lucidly described and invoke new approaches to etiology, diagnosis and treatment.The importance of links between oral health and general systemic health cannot be overestimated. Periodontology conclusively demonstrates the necessity for patient and clinician to keep these associations to the forefront of risk assessment and treatment. The benefits of this integrated approach will be clearly seen in the focus on prevention of oral disease, a primary objective for all hygiene professionals. The book shows how the systemic considerations influence the combination of diagnostic, therapeutic, pharmacological and mechanical treatment strategies.Frequently encountered disorders such as gingival recession and pathological changes in the peridontium are comprehensively documented and the range of prevention and treatment options set out. The inclusion of specialized subjects such as oral manifestations of HIV disease and the developments in its treatment serve to underline the key position of the hygienist in the wider health care team.The exceptional color photos throughout will be an indispensable guide to clinicians and students, and indeed a welcome resource for educators. From diagnostic tools such as depictions of levels of bleeding right through to detailed instrumentation techniques, these photos and their concise accompanying text form an outstanding best-practice guide.Concluding with the American Academy of Periodontologys Classification of Periodontal Disease, Periodontology will augment the knowledge and skills of dental hygienists, keeping practitioners up to date and providing students with the essential knowledge base for a career in periodontics.

|9780805843323 Vardi, Yoav Misbehavior in Organizations Taylor&Francis |
For many years, scholars aligned with mainstream research paradigms that make up organizational behaviour (OB) have been leaning toward the more positive
depiction of organizational reality. To better understand people's behaviour in the workplace, they must also explore misbehaviour. Organizational Misbehaviour (OMB) is a term that was
coined by Yaov Vardi when he found out there were no models for how to predict "misconduct" at work.
Thus, the purpose of this book is to delineate a new agenda for OB
theory and research. Devoted to the study and management of misbehaviour in work organizations, this volume is divided into three parts. Part I discusses the prevalence of these
It searches for typologies and definitions for misbehaviour in the management literature using a historical perspective and proposes a general framework of OMB.
Part II explores some important manifestations and antecedents of OMB at different levels of analysis - the person
the job and the organization. Finally, Part III presents practical and methodological implications for managers and researchers.
The authors offer a comprehensive and
systematically developed framework for the development and management of misbehaviour in organizations. The book is intended for students, scholars and practitioners who manage

|9780521864961 Paul Steege Black Market, Cold War Cambridge Academ |
This book explains how and why Berlin became the symbolic capital of the Cold War. It brings the history of the Cold War down to earth by focusing on the messy accounts of daily struggles to survive rather than seamless narratives of diplomatic exchange. By following Berliners as they made their way from ration offices to the black markets, from allied occupation bureaus to the physical and symbolic battles for the city’s streets and squares, Paul Steege anchors his account of this emerging global conflict in the fractured terrain of a city literally shattered by World War II. In this history of everyday life, he claims for Berliners a vital role in making possible Berlin’s iconic Cold War status. The world saw an absolutely divided city, but everyday Berliners crossed its many boundaries, and these transgressive practices brought into focus the stark oppositions of the Cold War.

At the heart of this epic saga, set just before the Opium Wars, is an old slaving-ship, The Ibis. Its destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean, its
crew a motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts. In a time of colonial upheaval, fate has thrown together a truly diverse cast of Indians and Westerners, from a
bankrupt Raja to a widowed villager, from an evangelical English opium trader to a mulatto American freedman.
As their old family ties are washed away they, like their
historical counterparts, come to view themselves as jahaj-bhais or ship-brothers. An unlikely dynasty is born, which will span continents, races and generations. The vast sweep of this
historical adventure spans the lush poppy fields of the Ganges, the rolling high seas, and the exotic backstreets of China.
But it is the panorama of characters, whose diaspora
encapsulates the vexed colonial history of the East itself, which makes Sea of Poppies so breathtakingly alive -- a masterpiece from one of the world's finest novelists.

|9780192628053 Barnes Textbook of Rehabilitation Med. Oxford Academ |
Knowledge of the techniques of rehabilitation is an increasingly important component of training in a range of medical and surgical specialties. It is now recognized that rehabilitation medicine requires specific training and has evolved as a distinct medical specialty. This trend has been encouraged by the move away from acute hospital care, towards care and services delivered in the community setting. The practice of rehabilitation medicine produces real benefits, which can be measured in terms of improved function, fewer complications, better co-ordination, cost-effectiveness and the general education of health professionals, the disabled person and their family. This text, aimed at all members of medical staff involved in the care of the disabled or handicapped patient serves to outline the underlying principles of rehabilitation medicine and provide information about the benefits of applying the relevant principles and techniques. There are chapters on the management of general physical and psychological disabilities, as well as consideration of specific disabling conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and stroke.

|9781855858848 Art of chesley bonestell, the Paper Tiger |
Chesley Bonestell was, without a doubt, the most influential space artist of all time. From a childhood interest in astronomy, Bonestell drew on his expert skills as a draughtsman to create inspired paintings of the planets. Considered the dean of space artists, Bonestell's work appered in hundreds of magazines, from Life to Popular Mechanics, bringing his visions to an avid public for several decades from the mid-1940s onwards. His work is still breathtaking today, still the paradigm which other space and astronomical artists strive to match. Some of his paintings - of the lunar surface, or Saturn as seen from Titan - are classics and, although our knowledge of these remote parts of our universe has overtaken Bonestell's visions, they have never been superseded as works of art. Edited by Ron Miller and Frederick C. Durant III, this glorious collection of over 300 illustrations covering all facets of Bonestells' art and carcer, has an accompanying full-length biographical commentary by Miller. As the definitive book of Bonestell's art, this is a treasure that belongs on every shelf.

This book's comprehensive chapters cover the pre-history of photography, the advent of dry plates and roll film, and stereo photography and the motion picture. While particular focus is given to historic technical achievements and pioneering advances in design, objects such as books, magazines, cartoons, photo-related toys, darkroom supplies and original film add value and dimension to this scholarly but accessible volume.
