Principles of Bone Biology, Two-Volume Set

Jan 2002
Hardcover
·
 
From The New England Journal of Medicine, February 19, 1998
Over the past two decades the field of bone biology has expanded rapidly and exponentially. This remarkable growth is due to a large extent to the development of tools that allow an understanding of the fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling bone metabolism in physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions. A spinoff of this research endeavor was the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools and their application to clinical investigations of various bone diseases. Moreover, skeletal disorders received progressively more attention with the appreciation of their prevalence in the population. One of these disorders, osteoporosis, was little known 20 years ago, but today is considered a major public health problem requiring preventive programs and the...

Book Description
Numbers and other mathematical objects are exceptional in having no locations in space or time or relations of cause and effect. This makes it difficult to account for the possibility of the knowledge of such objects, leading many philosophers to embrace nominalism, the doctrine that there are
no such objects, and to embark on ambitious projects for interpreting mathematics so as to preserve the subject while eliminating its objects. This book cuts through a host of technicalities that have obscured previous discussions of these projects, and presents clear, concise accounts of a dozen
strategies for nominalistic interpretation of mathematics, thus equipping the reader to evaluate each and to compare different ones. The authors also offer critical discussion, rare in the literature, of the aims and claims of...

Patio Daddy-O: The Golden Age of Barbecue: 50s Recipes with a 90s Twist

From Publishers Weekly
A domestic region, defined by time rather than geography, is plumbed in Chronicle's Patio Daddy-o: '50's Recipes with a '90's Twist. Authors Gideon Bosker, Karen Brooks, Leland Payton and Crystal Payton gather representative recipes (Maverick Martini; Mondo Bongo BBQ Chicken) and illustrations that seem lifted right out of Eisenhower-era family magazines. The recipes, while nostalgic, are for now (calling for creme fraiche, small Japanese eggplants and food processors). Dagwood and Elsie the Cow are featured. (Cloth $12.95 96p ISBN 0-8118-0871-8; June)Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From: Adobe Magazine Perhaps the most over-the-top example of the Chronicle Books style is a small, square volume called Patio Daddy-O: '50s Recipes with '90s...

Book Description
New Yorker Elizabeth Mann travels to London on a travel writing assignment. Little does she know that her ultimate discoveries will be far more captivating than the happenings at Buckingham Palace or the activities of the royal family. When she becomes lovers with an infertility specialist, the two conceive a plan to create a new person using the DNA of an infamous 18th-century criminal. Combining elements of Girl, Interrupted and A. S. Byatt’s Possession, Heredity is both a deadpan detective story and a twisted historical romance.

Review
"Fabulous Fabrics of the '50s )and Other Terrific Textiles of the '20s, '30s and '40s)," by Gideon Bosker, Michele Mancini and John Gramstad, gives us yet another of this publisher's definitive glimpses of the pop-culture past. Warning: Grandma's-house-flashbacks ahead. With its great images of birch-bark weaves, wafflecloth, barkcloth, pima cotton and much, much more, you will want to run your fingers over the pages but, alas, samples aren't included.

The authors are vintage textile collectors and purveyors, and they trace the evolution of the fabrics as patterns exploded accroding to the thmese and trends of the era. --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Now reissued with a striking new cover, Fabulous Fabrics of the 50s is the classic guide to the textiles of the exuberant...

From Publishers Weekly
Displaying less lounge lizardry and more sleuthing than in his previous two outings (Killing Me Softly; Night and Day), Key West PI and cocktail pianist Gideon Lowry investigates the purported suicide of a young woman. It seems that half the men in town knew paid escort Katy Morgan intimately. Lowry used her services; so did Brendan Scott, in the salvage business, and Joe Delgado, Scott's right-hand man. Morgan's death comes just when she was poised to turn her life around. She had reconnected with her father and had recently come into possession of a valuable chalice, which several parties showed some interest in buying. After her death, Lowry takes possession of the chalice and a list of her clients. Meanwhile, a reclusive and elderly judge is thinking about getting married. His intended is a little younger,...
