Details :The classic medical text referred to as Gray’s Anatomy is one in every of the foremost notable books ever created. during this masterful work of inventive prose, Bill Hayes uncovers the extraordinary lives of the seminal volume’s author and artist whereas providing a “scalpel’s-eye” read into the ingenuity of the chassis.

“Hayes’s history of the illustrated medical text Gray’s Anatomy coincides with the 150th day of its 1st publication. Fascinated by the very fact that small was famous regarding the notable book’s genesis, Hayes scrutinized nineteenth-century letters and medical-school records, learning that, besides Henry grey, the good scholar and doctor WHO wrote the text, another expert was crucial to the book’s popularity: Henry Vandyke Carter, WHO provided its conscientious drawings. Hayes moves agilely between the dour streets of Victorian London, wherever grey and Carter trained at St. George’s Hospital, and also the sunnier school rooms of a geographical area university crammed with athletic physical therapists in coaching, wherever he enrolls in anatomy categories and discovers that ‘when done well, dissection is extremely pleasing esthetically.’”

Detail - One November morning, Tom Jeffreys set off from Euston Station with a walking stick and an overloaded rucksack. His aim was to walk the 119 miles from London to Birmingham along the proposed route of HS2. Needless to say, he failed. In part, this is the story of the author's shortcomings - his inability to understand the city he lives in and to forge a meaningful relationship with his home-county hometown. It is also a critique of humanity's most urgent failures: of capitalism, community, the city and the suburbs and our age-old failure to find our place in the world.

Detail - This edited volume systematically reviews the evidence for early human presence in one of the most relevant geographic regions of Europe - the Balkans and Anatolia, an area that has been crucial in shaping the course of human evolution in Europe, but whose paleoanthropological record is poorly known. The primary aim of this book is to showcase new paleoanthropological (human paleontological and paleolithic) research conducted in the region. The volume is organized into three sections. The first one deals with the human fossil record from Greece, the Central Balkans, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. The second section presents the paleolithic record of the same countries. In the third part, the authors provide a synthesis of current paleoenvironmental evidence for the Balkans. Chapters summarize and systematize the available human fossil evidence, examine their context, and place them within the framework of our understanding of human evolution in Europe and beyond, as well as present new analyses of existing human fossils. This book will be of interest to professionals, upper undergraduate and graduate students in paleoanthropology, human paleontology and paleolithic archaeology and in a variety of related fields, including human variation and adaptation, paleontology and biogeography. It will also be appropriate as a reference book for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on human evolution and European paleoanthropology.

Detail - "To all who love the God with a 1000 names and respect science” In the last quarter century, the academic field of Science and Theology (Religion) has attracted scholars from a wide variety of disciplines. The question is, which disciplines are attracted and what do these disciplines have to contribute to the debate? In order to answer this question, the encyclopedia maps the (self)-identified disciplines and religious traditions that participate or might come to participate in the Science and Religion debate. This is done by letting each representative of a discipline and tradition answer specific chosen questions. They also need to identify the discipline in relation to the Science and Religion debate. Understandably representatives of several disciplines and traditions answered in the negative to this question. Nevertheless, they can still be important for the debate; indeed, scholars and scientists who work in the field of Science and Theology (Religion) may need knowledge beyond their own specific discipline. Therefore the encyclopedia also includes what are called general entries. Such entries may explain specific theories, methods, and topics. The general aim is to provide a starting point for new lines of inquiry. It is an invitation for fresh perspectives on the possibilities for engagement between and across sciences (again which includes the social and human sciences) and religions and theology. This encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work for scholars interested in the topic of ‘Science and Religion.’ It covers the widest spectrum possible of academic disciplines and religious traditions worldwide, with the intent of laying bare similarities and differences that naturally emerge within and across disciplines and religions today. The A–Z format throughout affords easy and user-friendly access to relevant information. Additionally, a systematic question-answer format across all Sciences and Religions entries affords efficient identification of specific points of agreement, conflict, and disinterest across and between sciences and religions. The extensive cross-referencing between key words, phrases, and technical language used in the entries facilitates easy searches. We trust that all of the entries have something of value for any interested reader. Anne L.C. Runehov and Lluis Oviedo
