|9781851492343 Houses and Garden Arts and Crafts Interiors Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
This classic work was conceived and written nearly a century ago by an author anxious to argue the case for sound house planning. It aimed to offer an alternative to the numerous books which instructed and advised their readers on the essentials of successful garden design and management, but paid scant attention to the actual houses which sat within their grounds. Indeed, the problems involved in house building, furnishing and decoration had hardly been treated with the consideration which the author felt they appeared to deserve. Interestingly, the author railed against much of the building design of his day comparing it to a disease rather than an art where, in his view, 'smirking self-conciousness' was often the consequence of an attempt to achieve the picturesque. Baillie Scott lamented the gradual disfigurement of town and village by what he saw as a plague of modern building and was saddened that his contemporaries seemed to have forgotten that houses had been and might yet be an added beauty rather than a blot on the landscape. He felt passionately that reform was urgently needed and that the plan of the average modern house, apart from artistic considerations, should be rationally designed. In this surprisingly timeless work, which provides today's reader with an intriguing insight into the thoughts of a designer from an earlier age, the principles of house planning are developed and supported by numerous described and illustrated exmples from the UK and abroad. The author includes all types of houses including terraces, cottages, semi-detached, flats, holiday homes and grander dwellings. All the principles of good house design are comprehensively discussed and illustrated as are the internal furnishings which, in the author's view, are so vital for the successful achievement of a unified and satisfactory whole.

The capabilities offered by netcentric technologies might seem to eliminate the need for physical workplace altogether, but the workplace remains, partly because the virtual, and in fact, the physical appearance of a typical office looks about the same.

In The Internet in the Workplace, Wallace shows how netcentric technologies touch every kind of workplace, and explores the challenges and dilemmas they create.
|9781850706816 Hurt History Of Cardiothoracic Surgery Informa |
This volume provides a comprehensive history of cardiothoracic surgery up to the introduction of open-heart surgery in the 1950s. It is the story of the pulmonary, oesophageal and cardiac surgery which relates mainly to the late-19th century and the dramatic advances in the first half of the 20th century. It also includes what was accomplished before this time, even as far back as Hippocrates before the introduction of percussion, auscultation and radiology, all of which revolutionized the diagnosis of thoracic disease. Many early clinicians were astute observers, and this is apparent in their writings, extracts of which have been included in the text in order to provide "atmosphere" to the surgical scene, and to enable the reader to relive the past and appreciate the problems of those early surgeons. It is surprising what they achieved despite a lack of modern investigatory facilities. This illustrated book is fully referenced, and includes an extensive bibliographical section. There are also chapters on: the history of the related topics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, bronchoscopy, oesophagoscopy and thoracoscopy; electrocardiography and cardiac catheterization; percussion and auscultation; thoracic anaesthesia, estimation of blood pressure and temperature; blood transfusion; and the discovery of the circulation of the blood.

|9780071121149 Evans The global challenge: frameworks for international human resource management McGraw-Hill |
Through its focus on human resource management and organization, this book provides a broad guide on how to manage the process of internationalization, with a particular focus on the transnational firm. The authors discuss the people implications of traditional strategies for internationalization and how such strategies get executed through human resource management (HRM). They discuss such topics as how to manage expatriates from the parent country; how to go about adapting management practices to circumstances abroad; how to localize management; how to recognize and ultimately avoid obstacles in joint ventures; how to expand across borders through acquisitions; how to respond to the contradictory pressures of the transnational firm, where HRM has a critical role to play in enabling managers to resolve these paradoxes in innovative ways; and how global competition is changing the nature of management and organization, even for firms operating in domestic markets. The book draws on practical examples from companies that have experienced the real challenges of international HRM. The authors carefully balance these real business applications with a wide scope of academic research.

|9781851494781 Albert Collection Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
This unique collection of beautiful and intriguing objects, more than 700 pieces of British and European silver, was put together over the past forty years by a discerning English enthusiast. It is striking for its great variety of types, the five centuries represented and the widespread places of making, from Finland to Italy, offering an unparalleled overview of design and technique, as well as a social history of silver for eating, drinking, around the house and as accessories to daily life. Selected with a keen eye for their excellent condition, their historical interest, and their inherent quality, most objects are of museum standard, although no single museum holds so many examples of flatware, from England and France and drinking vessels from Spain, Germany, France and Britain, of such diverse designs and dates. Tableware ranges in scale and date from a bread basket by Paul Crespin to an elegant modern caviar spoon. Great names from the story of English silver are present, from Paul Storr and the royal goldsmiths Robert Garrard, Philip Rundell and Benjamin Pyne, to leading Huguenots, such as John Hugh le Sage, David Willaume and Edward Feline. A caster from Charles Kandler's service for the De of Norfolk, spoons by Hester Bateman, mustard pots by the Hennells, and small wares by Joseph Willmore and other specialist Birmingham makers of 'toys' tell the story of polite dining. Regional rarities from Plymouth, Liverpool, Norwich, Exeter, Chester and Scottish-made drinking vessels round out the coverage. Royal associations appealed to the collector, explaining the presence of a beaker from the Battle of Culloden, a set of two-handled cups are among half a dozen items from the Duke of Cumberland's famous collection and the badges worn by King's Messengers. Plaques by Simon de Passe depict Elizabeth I and other royal successors. Rarities include an early Stuart royal bell and a varvel for a hawk. A strong category is the engaging personal accessories, from a calendar to a shoe horn, with striking and varied boxes for patches, tobacco and snuff. Many boxes combine semi-precious stones or organic materials such as mulberry wood, turtle shell and mother of pearl. A history of changing taste emerges through the chinoiseries of a late seventeenth-century perfume flask, the pique work or allusive baroque engraving on snuff boxes, rococo chasing of cream jugs, chaste neoclassical teawares, flamboyant Regency wine labels and inventive and eclectic Victorian tableware. Each object has been catalogued and specially photographed, often with details, for this publication, making it a significant work of reference, as well as a handsome record of the ingenious art of the silversmith. Grouped by their purpose, each section is introduced with a brief summary of social and design history and supplementary illustrations such as the sources for engraving.

Acorna's people, the Linyaari, have started to reclaim their homeworld from the ravages of the brutal alien Khleevi.

|9781558590328 Madeleine De Empire Daedalus |
Reaching its height in France during the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte, "Empire" represents the late development of a neoclassicism that had held sway over Europe since the mid 18th century. Under Napoleon's extraordinary political and aesthetic influence, the style spread throughout the Continent and the United States during the early 19th century and came to embody the glory of the French Empire. Illustrated with a superb collection of paintings, drawings, watercolours, and 150 full-colour photographs of projects in France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States Madelaine Deschamps's gracefully written text discusses Empire interior, decorative arts, architecture, gardens, painting, slpture, music, literature, and lifestyle within the political and economic context that so strongly influenced the development and popularity of the style. Napoleon's political hegemony may have ended long ago, but the style he fostered has remained of enduring interest among architects and designers.

|9780553813135 Erikson House of Chains Transworld Publishers |
In Northern Genabackis, just before the events recounted in GARDENS OF THE MOON, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flat lands. Their intention is to wreak havoc among the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove an extraordinary destiny. Some years later, it is the aftermath of the Chain of Dogs. Coltaine, revered commander of the Malazan 7th Army is dead. And now Tavore, elder sister of Ganoes Paran and Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of the Seven Cities to take charge. Untested and new to command, she must hone a small army of twelve thousand soldiers, mostly raw recruits, into a viable fighting force and lead them into battle against the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind. Her only hope lies in resurrecting the shattered faith of the few remaining survivors from Coltaine's legendary march, veterans one and all. In distant Raraku, in the heart of the Holy Desert, the seer Sha'ik waits with her rebel army. But waiting is never easy. Her disparate collection of warlords - tribal chiefs, Hh Mages, a renegade Malazan Fist and his sorceror - is locked in a vicious power struggle that threatens to tear the rebellion apart from within. And Sha'ik herself suffers, haunted by the private knowledge of her nemesis, Tavore...her own sister. So begins the awesome new chapter in Steven Erikson's MALAZAN BOOK OF THE FALLEN - an epic novel of war, intrigue, magic and betrayal from a writer regarded as one of the most original, imaginative and exciting storytellers in fantasy today.

|9780750688369 Clive Peedel Concise Clinical Oncology, Elsevier Science |
Cancer will affect one in two of the population by the year 2015 and large amounts of money are currently being invested in improving and reorganising UK cancer services. Most healthcare professionals will at some point be involved in the management of cancer patients. In spite of this, oncology has traditionally had a low profile when it comes to medical education. During my training as a clinical oncologist, I found it a time-consuming and often frustrating exercise trying to extract useful information relevant to UK oncological practice from the huge body of cancer literature. This made me realise how difficult it would be for medical students, junior doctors, nurses and other busy healthcare professionals to grasp a full understanding of the principles and practice of modern oncology. I therefore decided to write a concise textbook on clinical oncology with the aim of condensing a large amount of cancer information into an easily accessible and readable form that was relevant to everyday UK practice.

|9780099428435 Roth Philip Shop Talk Random House |
How is literature made in the writer's mind, and how is the writer's mind engaged by what is happening out in the world? In Philip Roth's intimate intellectual encounters with an international and diverse cast of writers, they explore the importance of region, politics and history in their work and trace the imaginative path by which a writer's highly individualised art is informed by the wider conditions of life. Featured are Milan Kundera and Czechoslovakia, Primo Levi and Auschwitz, Edna O'Brien and Ireland, Aharon Appelfeld and Bukovina, Ivan Klima and Prague, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Warsaw, Bruno Schulz and Poland, as well as appreciative portraits of two of Roth's late friends - the writer Bernard Malamud and the painter Philip Guston. Shop Talk concludes with 'Rereading Saul Bellow', a vivid presentation of Bellow's achievement and, in the spirit of this collection, very much a colleague's reading.

26-year-old Vadim hates his job in the PR department of Latvia's biggest bank. He spends his time playing his favourite shoot-em-up computer game, 'Headcrusher', and composing insulting emails about his bosses. When his manager catches him writing one such email, Vadim is so overcome with rage that he kills him. Then he kills the bank's security guard too, because he has seen him disposing of the body. Bumping people off comes to seem as easy as playing a computer game (or moving money between bank accounts) and Vadim embarks on a killing spree, putting paid to anyone who annoys him. But, as he becomes embroiled in the murky activities of the corrupt bank, which is laundering money for Mafia criminals, he starts to lose touch with reality. Where does truth end and fantasy begin - and is life just one big computer game? This high-octane debut novel has the energy of a Tarantino film, the game-playing of "The Matrix" and the philosophical quirkiness of "Fight Club". Nothing quite like it has come out of Russia before. It has been a major bestseller there, and has been picked up by publishers around the world.

|9780007224548 Osamu Tezuka Forest of Uruvela, The HarperCollins UK |
This is the fourth book in the classic eight volume graphic novel series retelling the story of Buddha, from the godfather of the genre. In book four, unfulfilled by the teachings of renowned ascetics, Siddhartha agrees to follow Dhepa into the forest of trials. But the final ordeal of little Assjai proves to be his most poignant lesson. As Sdhartha searches his heart and yearns for his family, the Kosalans discover the true caste of their queen - a despised shudra, disguised as a noble kshatriya. For the insult, the Buddha's homeland will pay dearly. Originated in the 1970s, "Buddha" is Osamu Tezuka's unparalleled rendition of the life and times of Prince Siddhartha. Tezuka's storytelling genius and consummate skill at visual expression blossom fully as he contextualizes the Buddha's ideas; with an emphasis on, action, emotion, humour and conflict as Prince Siddhartha runs away from home, travels across India and questions Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. Rather than recommend resignation and impassivity, Tezuka's "Buddha" predicates enlightenment upon recognizing the interconnectedness of life, having compassion for the suffering, and ordering one's life sensibly, his approach is slightly irreverent in that it incorporates something that Western commentators often eschew, namely, humour.

|9780007100682 Matt Beaumon e, a Novel HarperCollins UK |
An unforgettable first novel, an author to shout about, a campaign to ensure that everyone knows this is the funniest, sharpest read of the year. Consisting entirely of staff emails, e spends a fortnight in the company of Miller Shanks, an advertising agency that scales dizzying peaks of incompetence. Among the cast are a CEO with an MBA from the Joseph Stalin School of Management, a Creative Director who is a genius, if only in his own head, designers and copywriters driven by breasts, beer or Bach Flower Remedies, and secretaries who drip honey and spit blood. The novel is a tapestry of insincerity, backstabbing and bare-arsed bitchiness: that is to say, everyday office politics. Oh yes, and there is some work to be done too -- the quest for advertising's Eldorado, the Coca-Cola account. e is sleazy, scurrilous and scabrously funny. It also contains a first-class joke about the Pope and sound advice on the maintenance of industrial carpet tiles.

|9780674021907 100 Caterpillars Harvard University Press |
Every bright monarch butterfly or striking luna moth started out in a far subtler form of nature's mosaic, a humble caterpillar. It is this early stage of life - crafted by natural selection into machines for converting a vast array of plant matter, mostly leaves, into the beautiful adults that have captivated humans for millennia - that this book brings to dazzling light. Unobtrusive as they go about their business, these caterpillars are rarely seen by humans - and are virtually never seen from the perspective presented in this sumptuous volume: photographed in extreme close-ups at a resolution that captures in sharp detail the exquisite colours and features eluding the casual observer. Gathered by biologists Daniel Janzen, Winifred Hallwachs and Jeffrey Miller in the tropical dry forests, cloud forests and rain forests of north-western Costa Rica, over 100 large-format photographs of caterpillars document the dizzying variety of shapes, vivid colours, and cryptic markings among these species. The pictures are accompanied by capsule species accounts - revealing life histories as diverse as their forms - and magnificent images of the adult butterfly or moth. Throughout, the authors convey an intimate sense of these creatures - studied over 25 years - by focusing on how their features figure in their behaviour and ecology, and on the beauty of nature in this life stage, as well as the nature of that beauty. The story of the caterpillars is also the success story of Area de Conservacion Guanacaste - where the long-term work of Janzen and Hallwachs, and a team of gusaneros (caterpillar collectors and rearers), along with the participation of neighbouring farming communities, has deepened understanding of Costa Rica's Lepidoptera and has brought about advances in restoration ecology of tropical habitats, biodiversity prospecting, biological control of pests, biotechnology, residents' bio literacy, and ecotourism development.

|9780300113327 Harry Callahan: The Photographer at Work Yale University Press |
Harry Callahan (1912 - 1999) was one of the most influential photographic artists of the twentieth century. A master of modernist experimentation, Callahan
explored a range of subjects - from landscapes to city streets to portraits of his wife - and techniques throughout his career. Beautifully designed and produced, this book focuses on
understanding how Callahan worked, both his day-to-day photographic explorations and his resulting fifty-year career in photography.
Exploring the rich contents of the Harry
Callahan Archive at the Center for Creative Photography, the authors look at how Callahan's choice of subjects and visual ideas emerged from deliberate and improvisational processes,
and how such processes might be revealed with archival materials such as negatives, transparencies, proof prints, sequential ordering and variant printings. This close investigation of
Callahan's individual and experimental approach to materials in turn leads to a larger consideration of his relationship to seemingly contradictory strains in American visual culture of the

Whether a house is in the city, out in the country, or near the water, the presence of a patio, a porch or a veranda can provide an important connection
between the interior realm of a home and the external context of a residence. Depending on the location, a porch can serve different functions. In the city, it is a refuge from the loud,
hectic traffic; in the countryside, it serves as a platform from which to admire the landscape.
These spaces, at the border between interior and exterior, can also be used as
outdoor dining rooms and sitting rooms, play rooms, or just intermediate ambiences where one can relax and enjoy the surroundings. This volume gathers a selection of international
examples of patios, porches, and verandas where the reader will find inspirational design ideas and tips to make the most out of these spaces. Special attention to furniture and plants
will help to create great projects.

|9780764322181 Roland Kalte German Mountain Troops in World War II Schiffer |
Under the emblem of the Edelweis, the soldiers of the German mountain corps fought on every front in the Second World War in the tundra of Lapland, in the gorges of the Balkans, on Crete, in the High Caucasus, at Monte Cassino and finally in Upper Italy and the Western Alps, at the Semmering, in Bavaria and Tyrol. Mountain troops even formed part of Rommels famed Afrikakorps. During the war, the army alone formed a total of eleven mountain divisions, plus independent battalions and units.

Someone has set fire to a cottage on the premises of the prestigious Black Lotus Temple in 1691, Japan, killing three sect members. Veteran samurai -
detective Sano Ichiro, the Most Honourable Investigator of Events, Situations and People, is uncharacteristically quick to blame a delinquent orphan-girl found fleeing the scene. But his
young wife, Reiko, has different ideas.
After hearing rumours of ill doings within the sect, and using information privy only to a woman of the samurai class, Reiko finds that
newcomers to the Black Lotus are mysteriously disappearing almost as quickly as the sect can convert them. Unfortunately for the orphan and all who have disappeared in the name of
the Black Lotus, no one will believe Reiko. If only she can convince her husband before he condemns an innocent to burn at the stake...This is the latest in a smashingly-received and
best-selling series starring Sano Ichiro.
Now, since the introduction of his winsomely take-charge wife, the series, set in the luscious finery of the samurai court of medieval
Japan, has won an enormous following.

|9780300102369 Brown Private Lives in Renaissance Venice Yale University Press |
This book offers an engaging and original perspective on the private lives and material culture of patrician families in sixteenth-century Venice. Distinguished
art historian Patricia Fortini Brown takes us behind the elegant facades of grand palaces built along the Venetian canals and examines the roles of both fine and applied arts in family life,
as well as the public messages that these impressive homes conveyed. Illustrated with a wealth of varied and unusual images, the book provides a lively picture of the aristocratic
lifestyle during a period of changing definitions of nobility.
The author considers such wide-ranging themes as attitudes towards wealth and display, the articulation of family
identity, and the visual culture of Venetian women - how they decorated their homes, dressed, undertook domestic tasks, entertained, and raised their children. Recapturing the interplay
between the public and the private, she offers an account of Venetian households unequalled in vividness and detail.

|9780521671354 Charles Till Trust and Rule Cambridge Academ |
Rightly fearing that unscrupulous rulers would break them up, seize their resources, or submit them to damaging forms of intervention, strong networks of trust such as kinship groups, clandestine religious sects, and trade diasporas have historically insulated themselves from political control by a variety of strategies. Drawing on a vast range of comparisons over time and space, Trust and Rule asks and answers how and with what consequences members of trust networks have evaded, compromised with, or even sought connections with political regimes. Since different forms of integration between trust networks produce authoritarian, theocratic, and democratic regimes, the book provides an essential background to the explanation of democratization and de-democratization.
|9780521030847 Sarah Basset The Urban Image of Late Antique Constantinople Cambridge Academ |
From its foundation in the fourth century to its fall to the Ottoman Turks in the fifteenth, the city of Constantinople boasted a collection of antiquities unrivalled by any city of the medieval world. The Urban Image of Late Antique Constantinople reconstructs the collection from the time that the city was founded by Constantine the Great through the sixth-century reign of the emperor Justinian. Drawing on medieval literary sources and, to a lesser extent, graphic and archaeological material, it identifies and describes the antiquities that were known to have stood in the city’s public spaces. Individual displays of statues are analysed as well as examined in conjunction with one another against the city’s topographical setting, in an effort to understand how ancient sculpture was used to create a distinct historical identity for Constantinople.

|9781845429072 Troilo Marketing knowledge managememnt Edward Elgar Publishers |
Gabriele Troilo explores the entire marketing knowledge management process from a unique perspective. He emphasises the fact that in today's markets,
competitive advantage is achieved by companies which are knowledge-based and market oriented. The role of marketing in a knowledge-based company is also underlined: its
purpose is to generate marketing knowledge, share it with other departments, and promote its use.
As a consequence, the author argues, the marketing department is no
longer simply responsible for functional activities, but rather must become a diffuser of knowledge dispersed within the organization. "Marketing Knowledge Management" describes the
individual phases of the process in detail, exploring marketing knowledge emersion, marketing knowledge generation and marketing knowledge sharing and use. The tools required to
effectively implement any single phase are also discussed.
Emphasising that marketing should broaden its scope to encompass effective marketing knowledge management,
this book will be invaluable to: students, researchers and academics with an interest in knowledge management and all areas of marketing (including organizational aspects, marketing
in an information age and marketing information systems). Practising marketeers will also find that this book essential provides reading material.

|9780321227256 David Abraha C++ Template Metaprogramming: Concepts, Tools, and Techn Pearson Education |
C++ Template Metaprogramming sheds light on the most powerful idioms of today's C++, at long last delivering practical metaprogramming tools and techniques into the hands of the everyday programmer.
A metaprogram is a program that generates or manipulates program code. Ever since generic programming was introduced to C++, programmers have discovered myriad "template tricks" for manipulating programs as they are compiled, effectively eliminating the barrier between program and metaprogram. While excitement among C++ experts about these capabilities has reached the community at large, their practical application remains out of reach for most programmers. This book explains what metaprogramming is and how it is best used. It provides the foundation you'll need to use the template metaprogramming effectively in your own work.
This book is aimed at any programmer who is comfortable with idioms of the Standard Template Library (STL). C++ power-users will gain a new insight into their existing work and a new fluency in the domain of metaprogramming. Intermediate-level programmers who have learned a few advanced template techniques will see where these tricks fit in the big picture and will gain the conceptual foundation to use them with discipline. Programmers who have caught the scent of metaprogramming, but for whom it is still mysterious, will finally gain a clear understanding of how, when, and why it works. All readers will leave with a new tool of unprecedented power at their disposal—the Boost Metaprogramming Library.
The companion CD-ROM contains all Boost C++ libraries, including the Boost Metaprogramming Library and its reference documentation, along with all of the book's sample code and extensive supplementary material.
