The Biology of Gastric Cancers
Author: Timothy Wang, James Fox, Andy Giraud
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
As someone who has spent nearly half his life wondering about the relationship between Helicobacter and gastric cancer, I find this textbook on the subject exciting and timely. In fact, I am not aware of any other volume that has been able to distil so much new knowledge into such a comprehensive account of a poorly understood field. Taking my own view, as a scientist placed in the middle of the spectrum between basic science and clinical medicine, I can see that the editors, Jim Fox, Andy Giraud, and Timothy Wang, provide a broad mix of expertise, which ensures that the subject is treated with the right balance. From clinicopathologic observations in humans, to epidemiology, through animal models, to molecular and cell biology, this team has hit the mark for most readers. Fox is a well-known leader in animal models with broad expertise. He pioneered the field with observations on Helicobacter species in animals, from the time when only one spiral gastric bac- rium was known, “Campylobacter pyloridis. ” Fox partners with Wang, whose team recently announced a dramatic advance in the field of carcinogenesis—the obser- tion that bone marrow–derived stem cells participate in the changes that become cancer. To this nice mix has been added Andy Giraud from my own country, who brings to the table some remarkable genetic models of gastric cancer based on alterations in the gp130/stat3-signaling pathway.
We organize things. We organize information, information about things, and information about information. Organizing is a fundamental issue in many professional fields, but these fields have only limited agreement in how they approach problems of organizing and in what they seek as their solutions. The Discipline of Organizing synthesizes insights from library science, information science, computer science, cognitive science, systems analysis, business, and other disciplines to create an Organizing System for understanding organizing. This framework is robust and forward-looking, enabling effective sharing of insights and design patterns between disciplines that weren't possible before. The 4th edition of this award-winning and widely adopted text adds content to bridge between the foundations of organizing systems and the new statistical and computational techniques of data science because at its core, data science is about how resources are described and organized. The 4th edition reframes descriptive statistics as organizing techniques, expands the treatment of classification to include computational methods, and incorporates many new examples of data-driven resource selection, organization, maintenance, and personalization. The Informatics edition contains all the new content related to data science, but omits the discipline-specific content about library science, museums, and document archives.
Following the global success of The 1000 Dot-to-Dot Book, author Thomas Pavitte is now taking his extraordinary illustrations to the urban jungle in 1000 Dot-to-Dot Cityscapes. With 20 incredible drawings of some of the greatest cities in the world each consisting of no fewer than one thousand dots and rendered in amazing detail youll discover the unique pleasure and satisfaction that comes from joining dots. Best of all, the fun doesnt end with the the last dot joined, because the perforated pages make it easy to tear out your drawing, rewarding you with a brilliant piece of art that you yourself had a hand in creating!
Between 1789 and 1848, clerks modified their occupational practices, responding to political scrutiny and state-administration reforms. Ralph Kingston examines the lives and influence of bureaucrats inside and outside the office as they helped define nineteenth-century bourgeois social capital, ideals of emulation, honour, and masculinity.

Expanding communication technologies (such as computers and telecommunications services) are changing the world we live in by contributing to an emerging information society. How do new information age concepts enter the traditional environment? How are schools, occupations, and the media affected by the expansion of information capabilities? Williams (and other well known contributors) examine an information age economy as an exemplar considering such questions as: What methods should be used in studying an information society? What generalizations can be made? What lessons can be learned? Practical and pertinent examples in this well-researched volume illustrate ways to integrate these studies into everyday political, economic, and cultural life. Measuring the Information Society will interest researchers involved in measuring change relative to information society concepts; and economic and social planners. "The writing is succinct, the graphics and tabulations are excellent, and the bibliography is extensive. The narrow and specialized focus of this volume makes it most appropriate for upper-division and graduate collections." --Choice "This book is a welcome addition to the literature on the information society and its growth in the U.S. . . . The work will be of interest to non-economists and policymakers." --Information Economics and Policy "Overall, the book is a stimulating case study of an issue that has major national implications in the United States. It uses diverse methodologies and diverse sources and synthesizes it all very well." --Canadian Journal of Communication
