The Biography of a New Canadian Family Volume 4
HK$ 36.00 HK$ 40.00
Kobo

A Happy and Informative Present: at the new Universit de Sherbrooke, Pierre had developed a four-month teaching program for clinical nurses prior to their departure to the Canadian Far North where they would be in charge of a Nursing Station. In 1973, a group of them gave me as a parting gift the French translation of The Scalpel and the Sword by Ted Allen and Sydney Gordon (Toronto, 1952); the French version was by Jean Pare, 'Docteur Bethune' (Montreal, 1973). As new Canadians, we thought it odd that the French version should take 20 years to appear on the scene. We had been in Canada for 15 years.

'With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan; this slightly built; duitful; unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth; steadfastly to think it through; and then to render it comprehensible in lucid; unpretentious prose. He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contempible. What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable; but also; in THE PERIODIC TABLE and THE WRENCH; his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a magically endearing man; the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known'

Principles of Islamic Psychology
HK$ 36.00 HK$ 40.00
Kobo

Psychology is the study of mind, and this is exactly why the Quran put a great emphasis between the relationship of man and his Creator and the role faith plays intellectually and spiritually in our lives. The Quran is a book of wisdom, and it includes all aspects of human life. Religion, as a matter of fact, is an intellectual property that cannot be seen. So the mind cannot be seen. Human beings are curious creatures. This curiosity elaborated in the story of Abraham when he wanted to find the truth for himself. Finding the truth is a principle of science and research. Islamic psychology is based on three principles, namely theo-ethics, socio-ethics, and psyco-ethics, which discusses human relations from a psychological point of view. It is the mind that relates to all aspects of life. Therefore, Islamic psychology deals with all spheres that originate from God alone. For that, ego or self plays a major role and makes mankind responsible for all his actions. Since Islam is a religion of unity, then all processes of mind interrelate to not only self but also to God and society. Therefore, like any other field of knowledge, it is hard to separate psychology or the study of mind from other life principles. As a matter of fact, it is the mind that regulates other affairs, being good or bad. Islamic psychology emphasizes on making humans responsible for their inner soul activities, which lead either to felicity or destruction. Since religion is an intellectual property, then the study of mind is also a spiritual and intellectually property.

Christian Principles for the Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy
HK$ 75.00 HK$ 93.00
Kobo

All approaches to counseling and psychotherapy rest on assumptions about human nature. Current theories are primarily derived from Buddhist, humanistic, and evolutionary perspectives where there is no God or faith. This book mines the riches of scripture to identify the dimensions of human nature as understood in the Christian faith that can illuminate the work of the practicing clinician. These dimensions of human nature serve as a scaffolding that organize the scientific findings from psychology and neuroscience while remaining attentive to the spirituality of the client. A neuro-psycho-spiritual approach takes a whole-person perspective, delving into the psychological, neurobiological, and spiritual layers of human experience that are relevant to clinical practice. The counselor and psychotherapist will learn how to utilize the dimensions of human nature found in the Bible and apply them to their clinical work through the treatment of Joe, a priest struggling with a sex addiction. Joe will serve as a guide to illustrate how Christian principles can serve as a roadmap to better understand how emotional healing can be facilitated.

James Garner: A Biography
HK$ 35.00
Kobo

Internationally known as the star of three dozen movies and three television series, and a familiar face in TV commercials, James Garner is one of our finest actors. He is also one our funniest, but as he points out, "I don't do comedy. I do humor." And it is Garner's special brand of wry, subtle, carefully crafted funniness that has brought him widespread fame and a devoted following. Raymond Strait's pioneering biography discusses in detail Garner's movie and TV roles, taking us behind the scenes of the "Maverick," "Nichols," and "The Rockford Files" series, and on the sets of many of Garner's movie credits including Victor/Victoria and The Americanization of Emily. Strait also takes a close look at the man behind the roles-the family man and Hollywood maverick. Always an independent spirit, Garner had a tumultuous childhood that led him to a series of survival jobs, intermittent high-school football stardom, a stint in the Merchant Marine, and two Purple Hearts in Korea. He brought the resourcefulness and self-reliance of his youth to Hollywood, where he has earned a reputation for his off-screen battles with the industry's moguls as well as for his phenomenally popular on-screen persona. This is a story none of James Garner's many fans will want to miss.

A Biography Of Ten Of The Wealthiest Female Entrepreneurs Part Four
HK$ 17.00
Kobo

Before the 20th century, women operated businesses as a way of supplementing income. In many cases, they were trying to avoid poverty or were replacing the income from the loss of a spouse. At that time, the ventures that these women undertook were not thought of as entrepreneurial. Many of them had to bow to their domestic responsibilities. The term entrepreneur is used to describe individuals who have ideas for products, and/or services that they turn into a working business. In earlier times, this term was reserved for men. Female entrepreneurs, also known as women entrepreneurs, encompass approximately 1/3 of all entrepreneurs worldwide. This ebook consists of ten female entrepreneurs. The book is part four in a series. The female entrepreneurs are: Esther Grether, Gayle Cook, Heidi Horten, Leonore Annenberg, Lily Safra, Liz Mohn, Meg Whitman, Milane Frantz, Zhang Xin and Zhang Yin.

Principles of Orchestration with Musical Examples Drawn from his Own Works
HK$ 32.00 HK$ 35.00
Kobo

In his "Memoirs of my musical life" the following passage occurs: "I had planned to devote all my energies to the compilation of a full treatise on orchestration. To this end I made several rough copies, jotting down explanatory notes detailing the technique of different instruments. What I intended to present to the world on this subject, was to include everything. The writing of this treatise, or, to be more exact, the sketch for it took up most of my time in the years 1873 and 1874. After reading the works of Tyndall and Helmholtz, I framed an introduction to my work, in which I endeavoured to expound the laws of acoustics as applied to the principles governing the construction of musical instruments. My manual was to begin with a detailed list of instruments, classified in groups and tabulated, including a description of the various systems in use at the present day. I had not yet thought of the second part of the book which was to be devoted to instruments in combination. But I soon realised that I had gone too far. With wind instruments in particular, the different systems were innumerable, and each manufacturer favoured his own pet theory. By the addition of a certain key the maker endowed his instrument with the possibility of a new trill, and made some difficult passages more playable than on an instrument of another kind. "There was no end to such complications. In the brass, I found instruments with three, four, and five valves, the mechanism varying according to the make. Obviously, I could not hope to cover so large a field; besides, of what value would such a treatise be to the student? Such a mass of detailed description of the various systems, their advantages and drawbacks, could not but fail to confuse the reader only too eager to learn. Naturally he would wish to know what instrument to employ, the extent of its capabilities etc, and getting no satisfactory information he would throw my massive work aside. For these reasons my interest in the boo

Principles of Sustainable Aquaculture
HK$ 406.00 HK$ 451.00
Kobo

Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, principally fish, molluscs, crustaceans and marine algae. It has seen phenomenal worldwide growth in the past fifty years and many people view it as the best solution for the provision of high quality protein to feed the world's growing population, particularly with the rapid decline in wild marine fish populations. Aquaculture now contributes approximately one third of the world's fish production, and has increased by about eight per cent annually over the last thirty years, while wild capture fishery production has remained static. Focused on developing more sustainable aquaculture practices, this book provides an ideal advanced-level textbook. It is based on extensive evidence and knowledge of best practices, with guidance on appropriate adaptation and uptake in a variety of environmental, geographic, socio-economic and political settings. The author concentrates on low-impact aquaculture systems and approaches, which have minimal adverse effects on the environment. He also emphasizes socially responsible and equitable aquaculture development; to enhance the natural resource base and livelihoods. Drawing on a range of case-studies from around the world, the objective is to show where progress in terms of developing ecologically sound and socially responsible forms of aquaculture has been made. A tool-box of approaches to support widespread adoption and appropriate adaptation of regenerating aquaculture strategies is provided, ensuring the book will have practical relevance for both students and professionals.

The U.S. Navy's Vision For Information Dominance: Concept, Information as a Weapon, Guiding Principles, Road Map
HK$ 23.00
Kobo

The CNO has directed that the Navy position itself to remain pre-eminent in the fields of Intelligence, Cyber Warfare, Command and Control, Electronic Warfare and Battle & Knowledge Management. There is no other Service or nation that is as good, collectively, across these mission areas as the U.s. Navy. To obtain information age dominance, we will exploit new opportunities in distributed command and control, networking, and use of vast stores of collected data information and intelligence that too often lies at rest, undiscovered, unavailable, and untapped. In short, information will be elevated to a "main battery" of the U.s. Navy's arsenal. This paper provides a vision, principles, and initial direction to help guide us towards achieving our aspirations. The concepts in this paper boldly point to the new niche Navy will fill at the intersection of maritime, information, and cyberspace domains. We do not seek to replace kinetic combat with information warfare or diminish the need for traditional instruments of military power. Rather, we aim to develop a penetrating understanding of our adversaries and an unmatched knowledge of the operating environment to amplify traditional naval combat capabilities and expand options for our operational commanders. As we develop a globally-distributed, highly networked force, our Fleet will become much greater than the sum of its individual parts. Fundamentally, our information capabilities are being designed to deliver game-changing decision superiority and command and control overmatch. Time is short and the task paramount. Potential adversaries are working to offset our strengths and level the playing field. We can no longer afford inefficiencies incurred with stove-piped networks, systems and processes. Unless we leap ahead to develop a rigorous and comprehensive approach to control the electromagnetic spectrum and cyberspace, we will risk losing our competitive advantage. To achieve our aspirations, we must dramatically alter

Principles of Ethical Economy
HK$ 650.00 HK$ 722.00

John Maynard Keynes wrote to his grandchildren more than fifty years ago about their economic possibilities, and thus about our own: "I see us free, there- fore, to return to some of the most sure and certain principles of religion and traditional virtue - that avarice is a vice, that the exaction of usury is a misde- meanour. . We shall once more value ends above means and prefer the good to the useful" ("Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren," pp. 371-72). In the year 1930 Keynes regarded these prospects as realizable only after a time span ofone hundred years, ofwhich we have now achieved more than half. The pres- ent book does not share Keynes's view that the possibility of an integration of ethics and economics is dependent exclusively on the state of economic devel- opment, though this integration is certainly made easier by an advantageous total economic situation. The conditions of an economy that is becoming post- of ethics, cultural industrial and post-modern are favorable for the unification theory, and economics. Economic development makes a new establishment of economic ethics and a theory ofethical economy necessary. Herdecke and Hanover, October 1987 P.k. Table OF Contents Foreword v Introduction. 0. 1.

Uri Geller: Magician or Mystic?: Biography of the controversial mind-reader
HK$ 39.00 HK$ 43.00
Kobo

Jonathan Margolis's biography of Uri Geller, the controversial spoon-bending and mind-reading performer, was the first to examine dispassionately whether the former Israeli paratrooper is a talented magician or something altogether more mysterious - perhaps even an authentic paranormalist. Reviews "Superstitious atheists will find this book toxic. Jonathan Margolis clearly spooked himself writing it and I got an attack of the creeps one night just reading it." - Evening Standard "Uri's ability to perform amazing feats of mental wizardry is known the world over. Uri is not a magician. He is using capabilities that we all have and can develop with exercise and practice." - Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut and sixth man to walk on the moon "I think Uri is a magician, but I don't particularly believe that he is using trickery. I believe there are psychic abilities. They don't accord with any science we have at the moment, but maybe some future science will back them up with theories." - Brian Josephson, Professor of Physics, University of Cambridge, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics, 1973 "Uri bent a spoon for me. The first time he did, I thought there must be a trick. The second time I was stunned - completely, completely stunned and amazed. It just bent in my hand. I've never seen anything like it. It takes a lot to impress me. Uri Geller is for real and anyone who doesn't recognise that is either deluding himself, or he is a very sad person." - David Blaine "Geller has bent my ring in the palm of my hand without ever touching it. Personally, I have no scientific explanation for the phenomenon." - Werner Von Braun "I came to this book a rationalist and a skeptic. Yet, open-mindedness requires me to report that Jonathan Margolis' carefully researched, scrupulously detailed and even-handed exploration of Uri Geller's paranormal capacities suggests some of our current scientific understandings will need radical revision in the next century." - The Jewish Chro

The Lives of Margaret Fuller: A Biography

"Psychologically rich. . Matteson's book restores the heroism of [Fuller's] life and work."-The New YorkerA brilliant writer and a fiery social critic, Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) was perhaps the most famous American woman of her generation. Outspoken and quick-witted, idealistic and adventurous, she became the leading female figure in the transcendentalist movement, wrote a celebrated column of literary and social commentary for Horace Greeley's newspaper, and served as the first foreign correspondent for an American newspaper. While living in Europe she fell in love with an Italian nobleman, with whom she became pregnant out of wedlock. In 1848 she joined the fight for Italian independence and, the following year, reported on the struggle while nursing the wounded within range of enemy cannons. Amid all these strivings and achievements, she authored the first great work of American feminism: Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Despite her brilliance, however, Fuller suffered from self-doubt and was plagued by ill health. John Matteson captures Fuller's longing to become ever better, reflected by the changing lives she led.

Clinical Manual of Drug Interaction Principles for Medical Practice
HK$ 461.00 HK$ 512.00
Kobo

Drug interactions have become a significant iatrogenic complication, with as many as 5% of hospitalizations and 7,000 deaths annually attributable to drug-drug interactions in the United States. There are several reasons these numbers have increased. First, many new medications have been brought to market in recent years. Second, advances in medical care have resulted in increased longevity and more elderly patients than ever before - patients who are more likely to be following polypharmacy regimens. Population patterns in the U.s. have amplified this trend, with aging baby boomers swelling the patient pool and demanding treatment with medications advertised on television and in print. Fortunately, drug interactions can be prevented with access to current, comprehensive, reliable information, and the Clinical Manual of Drug Interaction Principles for Medical Practice provides just that in a user-friendly format psychiatry clinicians (including residents and nurses) and forensics experts will find indispensable. With this new edition, the book has evolved from "Concise Guide" to "Clinical Manual" and offers the expanded coverage and features healthcare providers need to keep up with this critical field. The book is well organized, with major sections on metabolism; cytochrome P450 enzymes; drug interactions by medical specialty; and practical matters, such as the medicolegal implications of drug-drug interactions and how to retrieve and review the literature. In the section on P450 enzymes, each chapter addresses what the individual enzyme does and where, its polymorphisms, and drugs that inhibit or induce activity. Each chapter also includes extensive references and study cases to help the reader understand and contextualize the information. A number of additional features enhance the book's scope and utility: The book boasts the very latest information in the area of drug metabolism, transport, and interaction.

Environmental Principles and the Evolution of Environmental Law

Environmental principles - from the polluter pays and precautionary principles to the principles of integration and sustainability - proliferate in domestic and international legal and policy discourse, reflecting key goals of environmental protection and sustainable development on which there is apparent political consensus. Environmental principles also have a high profile in environmental law, beyond their popularity as policy and political concepts, as ideas that might unify the subject and provide it with conceptual foundations or boost its delivery of environmental outcomes. However, environmental principles are elusive legal concepts. This book deepens the legal understanding of environmental principles in light of recent legal developments. It analyses the increasing legal effects of environmental principles in different jurisdictions and demonstrates how they are shaping and revealing innovative and evolving bodies of environmental law. This analysis is a step forward in understanding a key feature of modern environmental law and presents a robust methodology for dealing with novel legal concepts in the subject. It also makes a contribution to environmental policy debates and discussions internationally that rely heavily on environmental principles, including their supposed legal effects.

Michael Fassbender - The Biography

He's the outsider who rocked Hollywood with a string of powerful films, earning him plaudits, awards and an army of adoring fans. His chiselled yet rugged good looks and masculinity set him apart from the 'pretty boy' actors, which has made him popular with both men and women. His intriguing mix of Irish/German roots has infused him with an easy-going charm combined with a steely confidence and determination to succeed. Michael Fassbender doesn't just 'act' he 'becomes' the people he is portraying in a type of method acting that has seen him likened to Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro - both of whom were his childhood heroes. And he is an actor with remarkable versatility. In his breakthrough movie Hunger, he went on a strict diet to lose weight in order to play IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands. By contrast he portrayed an English army officer in the rollicking World War Two adventure Inglorious Basterds; the comic book villain Magneto in X-Men: First Class and psychiatrist Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method - in which he famously spanked Keira Knightley's bottom! He shamelessly bared all as a sex addict in Shame and got moody and broody as a chilling hired killer in the action thriller Haywire. In this eagerly awaited biography, Jim Maloney tells of his remarkable rise to fame from Heidelberg in south-west Germany, to Killarney in Ireland, on to London and Hollywood.
