The first part of the book provides a comprehensive introduction to microbiology for students of environmental science with little microbiology background. Topics then progress to the nature of the different possible environments in which the microbes are situated, the methodologies used to monitor microbes and their activities, and the potential effects of these microbes on human activities.

|9780714842875 Renzo Piano Vol 4 Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Renzo Piano - winner of the Pritzker Prize, 1998 - is an architect whose work seems increasingly relevant to our times. As Peter Buchanan has shown in the first three volumes of Piano's complete works, he follows no fashions of form or theory, nor is he limited to a personal idiom. Instead he concerns himself with the specifics and potential of a particular situation and moment, meeting the challenges of the programme, pushing the limits of technology, but always responding sensitively to the topography or urban fabric of the building's site. This fourth volume on Renzo Piano provides a study of the architect's working method, in particular his regard for context. Peter Buchanan's introductory essay is followed by a presentation of his projects from 1989 to 2000 - which range from urban works such as the Postdamer Platz masterplan, a science museum in Amsterdam and high-rise towers in Rotterdam and Sydney, to the acclaimed Beler Foundation and the Jean Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia. All projects are illustrated comprehensively, featuring colour photography of the buildings, their contexts and their detailing, as well as line drawings and sketches. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop is characterised by its sensitivity to site and local tradition as well as by its combination of traditional materials and techniques with those from the cutting edge of technology.

|9781851494002 Breed apart, A Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
Chronicled in this monumental volume is the combined encyclopedic collections of the American Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog. Because of the enormity of the two collections, it was impossible to include everything - during the selection process only the very best of the collected works were chosen. The collections are particularly comprehensive, and include not only nineteenth and twentieth century paintings and bronzes, but many watercolours, original prints, silver trophies, porcelains, and antique dog collars, each and every artifact directly related to dogs. Accompanied by an authoritative text, the exceptional combined collection of the AKC and the AKC Museum of the Dog, illustrated here in full colour, not only provide a catalogue but also virtually tell the history of the dog in art. It is in this spirit that the book is organised, starting with the Belgium, Dutch and Flemish art in the collections, countries where dog and animal art originated. England - the true home of dog painting is explored next, then France, and finally America, where animal art was maintained and flourished well into the twentieth century. The collections depicted in this volume are a testament to our love for the dog, in all its guises, in conformation dog shows, field and obedience trials, in the sporting field and as a pet. They are also a testament to the many artists, some of whom virtually forgotten until recently, who chose to use their insights and artistic skills to portray the dog on canvas, paper and in porcelain and bronze.

|9781851493630 Great Opera Houses Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
The artist, Andras Kaldor, was introduced to opera as a child by his parents who held season tickets to the Budapest Opera. Although he trained as an architect, his love of the opera has proved the stronger influence and he has spent the last twelve years painting major opera houses around the world. The facade of each opera house is illustrated in all its splendour, without the distractions of surrounding buildings and street scenes which so often detract from even the best photographs. Each opera house has been personally visited by the artist. The drawings are first done in pen and ink in architectural style, with scrupulous attention to detail. They are then painted in gouache. The effect is stunning and allows the viewer to fully experience the complexity and exuberance of these flamboyant 18th, 19th and 20th century buildings. In addition to the facades Andras Kaldor has also added many detailed drawings of particular aspects of both the exteriors and interiors of the buildings. The text accompanying the pictures is written, in many cases, by well known personalities who have a personal association with the individual opera houses. Background details of the history, architect

|9781850706113 Nicolaides Maternal & Fetal Thyroid Function Informa |
The "Frontiers in Fetal Medicine" series aims to provide comprehensive, up-to-date information on a variety of key topics in the field of fetal medicine. Each volume contains relevant information and practical advice to clinicians faced with the management of these problems in clinical practice. Although primarily aimed at specialist clinicians in the fields of obstetrics and foetal medicine, these volumes should also prove useful for other medical staff concerned with patient care in these fields. In fetal life, thyroid hormones are essential for optimal growth and development of the central nervous system, lung, gut and liver, and the regulation of carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. This volume reviews the actions of the thyroid hormones and the hormonal interplay between the placenta, foetus and mother, as well as the endocrine role of the polypeptide hormones produced by the foetal pituitary and placenta. It examines the management of maternal thyroid disease and the effect on the foetus of both the disease and its treatment. Additionally, the book provides data on foetal thyroid function in normal pregnancy and in the presence of various pregnancy complications such as intrauterine growth retardation and red-cell isoimmunization. Data are also provided on the foetal response to maternal administration of thyrotropin-releasing hormone, and the possible role of such therapy in promoting foetal lung maturity is evaluated.

|9780465083237 Sunlight at Midnight Daedalus |
A "biography" of St. Petersburg that is every bit as opulent, lavish, and monumental as Russia's imperial city itself. For Russians, St.
embodied power, heroism, and fortitude. It has encompassed all the things that the Russians are and that they hope to become. Opulence and artistic brilliance blended with images of
suffering on a monumental scale make up the historic persona of the late W.
Bruce Lincoln's lavish "biography" of this mysterious, complex city. Climate and comfort were not
what Tsar Peter the Great had in mind when, in the spring of 1703, he decided to build a new capital in the muddy marshes of the Neva River delta. Located 500 miles below the Arctic
Circle, this area, with its foul weather, bad water, and sodden soil, was so unattractive that only a handful of Finnish fisherman had ever settled there.
Bathed in sunlight at
midnight in the summer, it brooded in darkness at noon in the winter, and its canals froze solid at least five months out of every year. Yet to the Tsar, the place he named Sankt Pieter
Burkh had the makings of a "paradise. " His vision was soon borne out: though St.
Petersburg was closer to London, Paris, and Vienna than to Russia's far-off eastern
lands, it quickly became the political, cultural, and economic center of an empire that stretched across more than a dozen time zones and over three continents. In this book,
revolutionaries and laborers brush shoulders with tsars, and builders, soldiers, and statesmen share pride of place with poets. For only the entire historical experience of this magnificent
and mysterious city can reveal the wealth of human and natural forces that shaped the modern history of it and the nation it represents.

|9781841153193 Andy Dougan Dynamo HarperCollins UK |
In 1942 at the centre point of the Second World War an extraordinary event took place not on the battlefield but in a municipal stadium in Kiev. A match was arranged between a German Luftwaffe side and a team of impoverished Kievans from a local bakery - Start FC - that became the subject of legend. This is the true story of courage, team loyalty and fortitude in the face of the most brutal oppression the world had ever seen. When Hitler initiated Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, he caught the Soviet Union completely by surprise. At breathtaking speed his armies swept East, slaughtering the ill-prepared Soviet forces. His greatest military gains of the entire Second World War were made in a few short months, and the largest single country that he conquered was the Ukraine, roughly the size of France. Ukraine's capital, Kiev, was circled, assaulted and overrun, and among the city's defenders who were captured and incarcerated were many of the members of the sparkling 1939 Dynamo Kiev football team, arguably the best in Europe before the war . Captured Kiev was a starving city whose population were deported in vast numbers as slave labour. However one man determined to save not just the surviving players from the Dynamo side but other athletes. He offered them work, shelter and, most valuable, bread, as workers in his bakery. Inspired by the charismatic goalkeeper Trusevich, the Dynamo side was re-formed as Start FC and a series of fixtures was arranged, all of which the team win handsomely. To such an extent that they inspired Kievan spirits. The final fixture against the Luftwaffe was agreed by the German authorities: a well-fed team from the Fatherland would vanquish the upstart Ukrainians, especially if the game was refereed by an SS officer. The match is an allegory of resistance; its consequences are brutal. Andy Dougan has discovered the truth behind a legendary encounter, sorting fact from fiction and restoring to the centre of WW2 a moment of extraordinary poignancy and complex bravery, of which the clichi is demonstrably true: football is not a matter of life or death; it's much more important than that.

|9780091906146 Cohen, Josep Penis Book HB Random House |
Ah, the trusty penis. The cock, knob, widgie, pink python, groin bollard - call it what you will, this is one part of the male anatomy that never ceases to provide endless fascination and frequently mirth. Half the population have one and the other half, so Freud would have us believe, would like to. And yet still our flaccid friend is so often misunderstood. The Penis Book seeks to redress the balance, exposing all (quite literally) there is to know about the honourable member. Throbbing with facts, figures, photos and illustrations, the book leaves no foreskin unturned in its quest to bring you the low-down on its subject. Told with wit, vim and lashings of wicked humour, even the most prudish won't be able to resist raising a smile (and perhaps something else). The Penis Book is a celebration of the male member in all its purple-helmeted glory. So whether you're male or female, straight or gay, you'll find something in here to titilate and stimulate...
|9780847827718 Anne Knutson Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic Rizzolli |
While striving for a comprehensiveness that is appropriate to the breadth and scope of Wyeth's prolific oeuvre, "Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic" will focus on the artist's ongoing love affair with everyday things - domestic, natural and architectural. Found throughout Wyeth's portraits, landscapes and domestic interiors, these objects form patterns that illuminate core themes and reveal the artist wrestling with issues of memory, temporality, embodiment, and the metaphysical. The book will include a number of portraits, which will introduce readers to the people associated with these painted things and places. Organized chronologically and thematically, this book will explore how the artist's approach to these subjects was formed in his early career, became distinct in his middle period, and has been revisited in new and surprising ways in recent years.

|9780415325097 Bertrand Rus What I Believe Taylor&Francis |
Nothing is sacred. Sex, morality, politics, society. In What I Believe, first published in 1925, Russell took on organized religion. Along with Why I Am Not A Christian, this essay must rank as the most articulate example of Russell's famed atheism. It is also one of the most notorious. Used as evidence in a 1940 court case in which Russell was declared unfit to teach college-level philosophy, What I Believe was to become one of his most defining works. The ideas contained within were and are controversial, contentious and - to the religious - downright blasphemous. More than three quarters of a century after it was written, the arguments within this essay continto challenge one's faith and assumptions. A remarkable work, it remains the best concise introduction to Russell's thought.

|9780521606196 Masanao Aoki Modeling Aggregate Behavior and Fluctuations in Economics Cambridge Academ |
This book has two components: stochastic dynamics and stochastic random combinatorial analysis. The first discusses evolving patterns of interactions of a large but finite number of agents of several types. Changes of agent types or their choices or decisions over time are formulated as jump Markov processes with suitably specified transition rates: optimizations by agents make these rates generally endogenous. Probabilistic equilibrium selection rules are also discussed, together with the distributions of relative sizes of the bases of attraction. As the number of agents approaches infinity, we recover deterministic macroeconomic relations of more conventional economic models. The second component analyzes how agents form clusters of various sizes. This has applications for discussing sizes or shares of markets by various agents which involve some combinatorial analysis patterned after the population genetics literature. These are shown to be relevant to distributions of returns to assets, volatility of returns, and power laws.

In 1954, a fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat, and a local Japanese-American man is charged with his murder. In the course of his trial, it becomes

between a white boy and a Japanese girl; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost.
Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese
residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbours watched.

The development of advanced dielectric photonic structures has enabled tremendous control over the propagation and manipulation of light. Structures such as waveguides, splitters, mixers, and resonators now play a central role in the telecommunications industry. This book will discuss an exciting new class of photonic devices, known as surface plasmon nanophotonic structures. Surface plasmons are easily accessible excitations in metals and semiconductors and involve a collective motion of the conduction electrons. These excitations can be exploited to manipulate electromagnetic waves at optical frequencies ("light") in new ways that are unthinkable in conventional dielectric structures. The field of plasmon nanophotonics is rapidly developing and impacting a wide range of areas including: electronics, photonics, chemistry, biology, and medicine. The book will highlight several exciting new discoveries that have been made, while providing a clear discussion of the underlying physics, the nanofabrication issues, and the materials considerations involved in designing plasmonic devices with new functionality.The book is aimed at researchers and students interested in entering the field of plasmon nanophotonics, while serving as a reference to scientists already active in this area of research. It is written at the level of a first year graduate student with some background in electromagnetic theory and working knowledge of Maxwellâ€™s equations.

|9780521700351 David Crysta Think On My Words Cambridge Academ |
‘You speak a language that I understand not.’ Hermione’s words to Leontes in The Winter’s Tale are likely to ring true with many people reading or watching Shakespeare’s plays today. For decades, people have been studying Shakespeare’s life and times, and in recent years there has been a renewed surge of interest into aspects of his language. So how can we better understand Shakespeare? How did he manipulate language to produce such an unrivalled body of work, which has enthralled generations both as theatre and as literature? David Crystal addresses these and many other questions in this lively and original introduction to Shakespeare’s language. Covering in turn the five main dimensions of language structure - writing system, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and conversational style - the book shows how examining these linguistic ‘nuts and bolts’ can help us achieve a greater appreciation of Shakespeare’s linguistic creativity.
|9780521697866 Paul Clark The Chinese Cultural Revolution Cambridge Academ |
A groundbreaking study of cultural life during a turbulent and formative decade in contemporary China, this book seeks to explode several myths about the Cultural Revolution (officially 1966–1976). Through national and local examination of the full range of cultural forms (film, operas, dance, other stage arts, music, fine arts, literature, and even architecture), Clark argues against characterizing this decade as one of chaos and destruction. Rather, he finds that innovation and creativity, promotion of participation in cultural production, and a vigorous promotion of the modern were all typical of the Cultural Revolution. Using a range of previously little-used materials, Clark forces us to fundamentally reassess our understanding of the Cultural Revolution, a period which he sees as the product of innovation in conflict with the effort by political leaders to enforce a top-down modernity.
|9780521597302 Martin Shaw Theory of the Global State Cambridge Academ |
This ambitious study rewrites the terms of debate about globalization. Martin Shaw argues that the deepest meaning of globality is the growing sense of worldwide human commonality as a practical social force, arising from political struggle not technological change. The book focuses upon two new concepts: the unfinished global-democratic revolution and the global-Western state. Shaw shows how an internationalized, post-imperial Western state conglomerate, symbiotically linked to global institutions, is increasingly consolidated amidst worldwide democratic upheavals against authoritarian, quasi-imperial non-Western states. This study explores the radical implications of these concepts for social, political and international theory, through a fundamental critique of modern ‘national-international’ social thought and dominant economistic versions of global theory. Required reading for sociology and politics as well as international relations, Theory of the Global State offers a historical, theoretical and political framework for understanding state and society in the emerging global age.

in-depth account of the complex interactions between administrative law, policy and practice. It is informed by inside access into a local authority and insider understanding.Drawing on
rich source material - one local authority's involvement in the epic central/local confrontation over local government spending in 1980s England - this book develops a multifaceted and
widely applicable analysis of public law within government as a process of 'sustaining the art of the possible'.

First published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, "Armageddon in Retrospect" is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and
peace. Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humour, the pieces range from a visceral nonfiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden during World War II - a piece that is as
timely today as it was then - to a painfully funny short story about three privates and their fantasies of the perfect first meal upon returning home from war, to a darker, more poignant story
about the impossibility of shielding our children from the temptations of violence. Also included in this title are Vonnegut's last speech as well as an assortment of his artwork, with an
introduction by the author's son, Mark Vonnegut.
"Armageddon in Retrospect" says as much about the times in which we live as it does about the genius of the writer.

This is a beautiful, very moving, melancholic and elegiac novel set in the late 1960s in Melton, a small town in the West Country. The story revolves around a
disparate group of people who come together there to establish an arts festival. There is Jack Curtis a self-made millionaire who has bought and refurbished the local stately home,
Florence Plover, a garden designer in her sixties whom he has employed and her Anglo-Greek niece, Persephone.
There are the Musgrove siblings, Thomas and Mary, whose
family originally owned Melton Hall, who run a failing garden nursery nearby and there is Francis Brock, whose sister Celia, Thomas' wife, was tragically killed in a car crash some years
previously. This is the story of their intertwining relationships and how they come to love, and not to love each other in different ways and why - a perfect book to curl up and read by the
fireside on an autumn afternoon and as satisfying a read as "Brief Encounter" is a film.

|9781848540187 The Waiter Waiter rant Hodder |
Most restaurant customers are nice people, but a few are socially maladjusted psychopaths who relish giving their waiters a hard time. WAITER RANT gives
the inside scoop on what really goes on behind the scenes in a restaurant, how to be a good customer and get great service and why, strangely, a waiter's lifestyle is as addictive as
crack cocaine. After training as a priest, working in psychiatric hospitals and nearly having a nervous breakdown by the age of thirty, the Waiter began serving tables.
years later ...he's still figuring out what to do when he grows up, but has survived enough hellish shifts on the restaurant floor, smiling whilst holding burning hot plates and still smiling
whilst a customer changes her order for the seventh time, to know a thing or two. His outrageous anecdotes of appalling customer behaviour show that people are at their worst when
being served. Bad customers get bad service.
So if you don't want your waiter to spit in your food, or give you the table next to the toilets on Valentine's Day, the Waiter
suggests you follow a few customer rules.

|9781568982205 Thomas G E William I Price Birkhauser Verlag AG |
William L. Price, a disciple of Frank Furness who practiced in Philadelphia from 1883 to 1916, established the architectural character of two resorts, Atlantic City and Miami, thus shaping the architecture of the Roaring Twenties. Although his biggest and best-known projects, the Art Deco Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City and the Chicago Freight Terminal are both destroyed, his arts and crafts utopian community in Arden, Delaware, survive to attest to the vigour of his ideas. Price left a legacy of houses, railway stations, and commercial structures stretching from Atlantic City to Chicago, and from Canada to Florida that were widely emulated. In addition, he was a writer and furniture designer whose work was regularly featured in Gustav Stickley's "The Craftsman". His role in shaping American architecture is uncovered in this volume, which documents the architect's complete works - including over 350 hotels, houses and pieces of furniture - bringing to light this unknown American master.
|9783764356163 Mack G Herzog & De Meuron - Complete Works Vol I: 1978 - 1988 Birkhauser Verlag AG |
This volume traces the development of the work of the Basle architects Herzog and de Meuron in the first 11 years. Much emphasis is placed on the initial design processes, made tangible through plans and sketches. Finished buildings are presented in great detail. Spanning the years 1978-1988, it covers a number of projects, and explores how the men developed a methodological basis upon which the large projects of the following years could be based. Herzog and de Meuron's early designs were so condensed with the expression, function and structure, that they formed a whole. A central theme of the first decade of their work called for taking a fresh look at building materials. A house in a garden near Basle was joined together with completely different types of plywood on the outside and inside; the outside walls of an apartment building in Tavole were layered with rough stone; and a glass shell was planned for a laboratory in Basel. The early works already demonstrated an intense interest in the design of the facade. The Pilotengasse development in Vienna's city limits was the first project to grapple with far-reaching urban planning considerations.

|9783764358778 Redl Cytokines in Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock Birkhauser Verlag AG |
This book deals with the central role of cytokines in the generalized inflammatory response of the host as the consequence of severe infection/endotoxin action. International specialists cover several aspects in 20 chapters starting with the agents responsible (endotoxin, superantigens) and recognition during cytokine induction. Further chapters deal with the signal transduction cascade, its modulation due to sex or genetic polymorphism, and the possibilities and problems in detection (including surrogate markers). Major targets of actions are covered in the chapters on coagulation-/fibrinolysis, adherence molecules, vasoactive factors, apoptosis and metabolism. As not all actions of cytokines are beneficial, several chapters deal with the prevention of induction, modulation of the cytokine generation or scavenging cytokines including gene therapy approaches. Models are necessary for obtaining pathophysiological information and for testing therapeutic approaches, and thus all chapters deal with experimental models as well as clinical trials. The reasons why these have failed so far are the subject of the final chapter.

Originally published in 1823, "The Pioneers" is the first of Cooper's five "Leatherstocking Tales", and the one that incorporates most fully his own experience of growing up in a town of the American frontier.

Harriett Woods argues that it will take more than a woman president to assure women effective power in the next millennium. She believes that getting more women to enter the political pipeline will take both their commitment and a knowledge of the past. The author uses her own life story to recall how women excluded from public life were fired by their determination to solve local problems and their passion for social issues. The author tells stories about such colourful figures as Bella Abzug and Betty Friedan; provides step-by-step advice on becoming a candidate; and describes from her own personal experience such moments as the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, the 1992 Year of the Woman, the appointments of Janet Reno and Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her own breakthrough race for the US Senate in Missouri in 1982.

|9780789207135 Eliane Stros Art and Science Abbeville Press |
The dialogue between art and science has powerfully shaped both endeavors since antiquity. Artists have been pioneering figures in disciplines from engineering to medicine, while scientists have decisively influenced our visual culture with their discoveries. In an authoritative and accessible text with over 200 diagrams and illustrations, Art and Science explores the fascinating history of this interaction for the first time. Throughout history, science and art have reflected similar values and used parallel tools and methods. Artists and scientist today are intrigued by the advancements in each other's fields. Artists are fascinated by atomic structure, the Big Bang, and DNA, while scientists try to explain theories with images that will embody "the beauty of logic." Art and Science focuses on the most illuminating intersections of art and science - how science has shaped architecture, from Stonehenge to contemporary buildings that reflect research on DNA; how mathematical principles have impacted decorative design; how perceptual discoveries have influenced the development of painting; and how discoveries in the physical disciplines have transformed the performing arts, from music to movies. In a wide-ranging discussion across these and many other disciplines, this clearly written, well-illustrated volume provides an accessible introduction to an enduring dialogue.

|9780851157276 St. Birgitta of Sweden Boydell & Brewer |
St Birgitta of Sweden was one of the most charismatic figures in the late medieval mystical tradition. In Rome she succeeded in commanding prelates and popes, and throughout the courts of Europe she engaged in political secular intrigues; she married and produced eight children, yet became the only woman in the fourteenth century to be canonised; and in an age where new monastic foundations were proscribed, she founded an order of her own devising, primarily for women. This first modern biography presents an account of her extraordinary life and achievements, placing the saint in the context of the society from which she emerged, and showing how her public voice and reforming zeal were informed by a private spirituality at all stages of her life. Particular attention is given to her most lasting achievement, the monastic foundation which bears her name and has produced a network of communities throughout Europe, active to the present day. Dr BRIDGET MORRISis senior lecturerin Scandinavian studies at the University of Hull.

|9781851493746 Paris salons Vol.6 1895-1914: Textiles and Leatherware Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
The catalogues of the Paris Salons at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century provide a unique archive of illustrations of the decorative arts at a pivotal time in their development, the five previous volumes covering Jewellery, Furniture, Ceramics and Glass, and Objets d'Art. The fabric designers of the Art Nouveau style who exhibited at the Paris Salons produced a remarkable oeuvre in printed and woven fabric, silk, lace, embroidery and tapestry. Bookbinding was, and still is, a well-established French tradition, and bibliophiles commissioned unique bindings from artist-designers who, at the same time, were also creating and exhibiting non-bound leather goods - handbags, blotters, upholstery. This volume is probably the most important in the series. Because of wear and tear, practically none of the approximate 1,200 textile and leatherware pieces illustrated have survived outside museum collections or appeared at auction, unlike the items covered by the earlier volumes.
