Paper Soldiers of the Middle Ages the Crusades
David Nicolle
0883880962
Oct 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Born amid immense bloodshed and suffering, the Kingdom of Jerusalem remained a battlefield for almost 200 years. The long rivalry between Christianity and Islam led to the Crusades and gave rise to the Military Orders of the Templars and Hospitallers, and provided a backdrop to the careers of some of history's most famous leaders, including Richard the Lionheart and Saladin. This book shows how the savagery of the Crusaders often left their opponents reeling, creating frictions that survived more than 700 years. At the same time, as the book illustrates, art, architecture, and learning all benefited from new knowledge the Crusaders brought back from the East. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review
Macleod's is an essential part of your medical school kit. You will need this if you are ever going to learn how to percuss someone's lungs, listen for their heart sounds, and then feel like a proper doctor by asking them to say "Ahh" as they stick their tongue out at you.
Edinburgh Medics, a Res Medica supplement courtesy of the Royal Medical Society, July 2005

[Macleod's] has lists scattered through the text in little boxes titled "Examination Sequence". Finally someone is telling us how to actually do the examinations we were meant to be practising all year. The book is logically broken down into the different systems, including a separate chapter for neonates and infants. Throughout the book there are tables and diagrams to illustrate the text in addition to the photos.

History of European Housing in Australia
Patrick Nicol Troy (Editor)
0521771951
June 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"This is an important collection that will be useful for scholars of Australian housing, and indeed of the country itself, as housing is one of the human needs, if not rights. H-Net Reviews Jan 2002

Book Description
This collection of essays is the first systematic attempt to explain the social, administrative, technical and cultural history of "European" housing in Australia. Written by a collaborative team of scholars it explains how Australian housing has evolved from the ideas brought by the first settlers, and what makes Australian housing distinctive in social terms. The book will be invaluable for students of urban affairs and those engaged in housing and the design professions, as well as policy-makers and analysts in the public and private sectors.
