It is not only a classification of tumours of the central nervous system but an authoritative and explicit account of this group of tumours...This the fourth edition contains a number of distinct improvements on previous editions both in layout and content... One new feature is the clear account of the WHO's grading system its rationale and its application... New tumour entities are included...Newly recognized histological variants include pilomyxoid astrocytoma. Both anaplastic medulloblastoma and medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity have gained recognition in the classification... There are some differences in classification from the third edition most notably relating to anaplastic oligoastrocytoma. The change in emphasis follows cited differences in prognosis between mixed tumours with and without necrosis. Other changes are also apparent e.g. within the atypical teratoid/rhabdoid section mention of the INI-1 locus in the genetics section in the third edition has been expanded to include immunohistochemistry in the fourth edition. The fourth edition is unique in its clear-targeted and succinct style of presentation of tumors of the CNS... it will be of universal appeal in neuro-oncology and will most certainly form the main basis for diagnosis by multidisciplinary teams managing patients with tumors of the CNS." -- Nicki Cohen* and Roy O. Weller** *Specialist Registrar in Neuropathology Southampton University Hospital NHS Trust UK. ** Emeritus Professor of Neuropathology Southampton University UK in" Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology. ."..Representing the first volume in the fourth edition series of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumours this book provides a welcome mix of old and new. ... Perhaps the most noticeable improvement comes by way of a voluminous expansion in the genetics sections of the majority of tumor categories. This update parallels the recent explosion of research utilizing high-resolution genome screening and other molecular techniques. The authors have done an outstanding job in distilling the information housed in over 2,500 cited references into a reader friendly authoritative reference of CNS neoplasia. In summation, the current edition of the "WHO Classification of Tumours of the Central Nervous System" will serve as an indispensable textbook for all of those involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with tumors of the CNS and will make a valuable addition to libraries in pathology, radiology, oncology and neurosurgery departments. --"Journal of Neuropathology & Exp.

Описание: "This encyclopedia, magnificently edited by Byron Kaldis, will become a valuable source both of reference and inspiration for all those who are interested in the interrelation between philosophy and the many facets of the social sciences. A must read for every student of the humanities." Wulf Gaertner, University of Osnabrueck, Germany "Like all good works of reference this Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is not to be treated passively: it provides clear and sometimes controversial material for constructive confrontation. It is a rich resource for critical engagement. The Encyclopedia conceived and edited by Byron Kaldis is a work of impressive scope and I am delighted to have it on my bookshelf.” David Bloor, Edinburgh University "This splendid and possibly unique work steers a skilful course between narrower conceptions of philosophy and the social sciences. It will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers in either or both fields, and to anyone working on the interrelations between them." William Outhwaite, Newcastle University The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is the first of its kind in bringing the subjects of philosophy and the social sciences together. It is not only about the philosophy of the social sciences but, going beyond that, it is also about the relationship between philosophy and the social sciences. The subject of the Encyclopedia is purposefully multi- and inter-disciplinary. Knowledge boundaries are both delineated and crossed over. The goal is to convey a clear sense of how philosophy looks at the social sciences and to mark out a detailed picture of how the two are interrelated: interwoven at certain times but also differentiated and contrasted at others. The Entries cover topics of central significance but also those that are both controversial and on the cutting-edge, underlining the unique mark of this Encyclopedia: the interrelationship between philosophy and the social sciences, especially as it is found in fresh ideas and unprecedented hybrid disciplinary areas. The Encyclopedia serves a further dual purpose: it contributes to the renewal of the philosophy of the social sciences and helps to promote novel modes of thinking about some of its classic problems.

Описание: The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language is one of the publishing phenomena of recent times. Rarely has a book so packed with accurate and well researched factual information been so widely read and popularly acclaimed. It has played a key role in the spread of general interest in language matters, generating further publications and broadcasting events for an avid audience. Its First Edition appeared in hardback in 1995 and a revised paperback in 1997. There have been numerous subsequent updated reprintings; but this Second Edition now presents an overhaul of the subject for a new generation of language-lovers and of teachers, students and professional English-users concerned with their own linguistic legacy. The length of the book has been extended and there are 44 new illustrations, extensive new material on world English and Internet English, and a complete updating of statistics, further reading suggestions and other references.
Описание: This new, thoroughly revised edition of the acclaimed Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language incorporates the major developments in language study which have taken place since the mid 1990s. Two main new areas have been added: the rise of electronic communication in all its current forms from email to texting, and the crisis affecting the world's languages, of which half are thought to be so seriously endangered that they will die out this century. • All language statistics have been updated, and additional information provided about their linguistic affiliation • All topics involving technology have been revised to take account of recent developments, notably in phonetics, language disability, and computing • Maps have been revised to include new countries or country names • Special attention has been paid to fast-moving areas such as language teaching and learning • The text design has been completely updated with many new illustrations throughout

Описание: Changes in the field of central banking over the past two decades have been nothing short of dramatic. They include the importance of central bank autonomy, the desirability of low and stable inflation, and the vital role played by how central banks communicate their views and intentions to the markets and the public more generally. There remains considerable diversity nevertheless in the institutional framework affecting central banks, the manner in which the stance of monetary policy is determined and assessed, and the forces that dictate the conduct of monetary policy more generally. The global financial crisis, which began in the United States in 2007, only serves to highlight further the importance of central bank policies. The aim of this volume is to take stock of where we are in the realm of the practice of central banking and considers some of the implications arising from the ongoing crisis.

Описание: Praise for Central Banking Thammarak Moenjak has written a remarkably clear description of the nature and history of central banking, with emphasis on the challenge presented by the Great Financial Crisis and the complexity of markets. A useful and readable text book not only for a student but for the interested public. Paul Volcker, Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve This comprehensive textbook on central banking covers the history, functions, objectives, actions and future concerns of these institutions. It is written in clear, simple English, which befits a book whose intended audience extends much wider beyond expert economists. The authors own personal experience as a Central Bank official in the Bank of Thailand, with spells working both in developed and emerging economies, has enabled him to assess the role of Central Banks in a broad, sensible and balanced fashion. A good introduction to the subject of Central Banking, which has become increasingly important to the workings of our economic systems. Charles Goodhart, Emeritus Professor, London School of Economics; Former External Member of the Bank of Englands Monetary Policy Committee The recent financial crises, especially the global financial crisis of 20082009, have eroded faith in many financial institutions. Surprisingly, Central Banks remain strong and respected. Indeed, a positive halo continues to hang over them. Yet, few people understand how Central Banks work. This is why Thammaraks book is truly timely. He throws new light on these key institutions. We are truly proud that a graduate of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy has produced this informative and enlightening book. Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore and author of The Great Convergence: Asia, the West, and the Logic of One World The author is to be congratulated in providing an introduction to central banking that is very well written and informative. I am especially impressed with the coverage given to central banks in emerging economies and the stress which is placed on the role central banks can play in sustaining both monetary and financial stability. Robert Dixon, Professor, University of Melbourne Thammarak Moenjak has written a very useful text that provides a broad perspective on the functions central bank perform and the challenges faced in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Not only does he manage to blend together old and new perspectives of central banking, but also he is able to provide a holistic view of how central banks apply their monetary and financial stability mandates and deal with the numerous challenges posed by zero–interest floors. Charles Adams, Former Visiting Professor, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore Thammarak Moenjaks book is an important contribution to the literature on central banking. The coverage of topics is impressive both in terms of the theoretical coverage but also the wide–ranging historical examples. What is especially exciting about this book is the fact that it is highly accessible to a broad audience. While it will no doubt be of great use to a course in monetary economics at the upper undergraduate or graduate level, it will also very likely be used in graduate courses in public policy schools. Christopher Worswick, Full Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Economics, Carleton University
