Spalding, David A. E.; Oke, Kevin
144pp.The southern Gulf Islands between Nanaimo and Victoria are among British Columbia's greatest scenic treasures, projecting an appeal so powerful as to make nesomanes (island lovers) of the most unromantic souls. Ranging in size from Saltspring (pop. 12,000) to unoccupied D'arcy, they first began to attract European settlers in 1859 and have been home to a special breed of freedom-loving denizen ever since. Author David Spalding and photographer Kevin Oke are both members of this unique tribe and in this book pay tribute to their chosen region with the sensitivity and insider knowledge only long-time residents can provide.Brimming with gorgeous colour photographs by Oke, "Enchanted Isles" begins with a historic overview detailing how the islands served as a favoured hideaway of some of BC's most distinguished eccentrics. Remittance men and other escapees from British stuffiness form one stream of islanders, but there have been many others. A census of Saltspring in 1895 included a Patagonian, Germans, Portuguese, Hawaiians, Americans, Shetlanders and Scandinavians. Today you may expect to find individuals from virtually anywhere in the world. "Enchanted Isles" showcases local wildlife, captures local character and history and offers insider tips for visitors. It is a spectacular coffee-table book that shows why the Gulf Islands rank with Whistler and the Pacific Rim as one of the most popular tourist destinations in BC.

Mohiaddin, R.H.; Longmore, D.B.
Magnetic resonance is a safe, non-invasive technique which can be used to produce high resolution, thin tomographic slices in any chosen plane, or true three-dimensional blocks of information. It has become the method of choice for studying the central nervous system, the vertebral column and many joints, but has not yet gained general acceptance in the cardiovascular system, although there are techniques for overcoming the problems of cardiac movement to produce excellent cardiovascular images. The purpose of this book is to provide the student and radiologist with a reference which can be used to identify the major structures in the body, bearing in mind that in each region a more detailed high-resolution study can usually be obtained by specialized units. The illustrations, each of which is accompanied by an explanatory line drawing, are soft tissue images based on the water content rather than the familiar X-ray shadowgram of mainly hard tissues. 202pp.

Papadakos, Sue
Those We Do Not See". It could be just the title of a book. It may strike our curiosity and make us open it and admire beautiful pictures. But it could also be a strong stimulus. Not only of the vision, delighted by staring at the beauty, but of the spirit and soul as well. What is there beyond the visible? What our sight can catch we decided to really look around us? How much beauty is there within our reach, and we just pass by? This book offers exactly this peculiarity: it urges us to see. Through Sue Papadakos' sensitive eye and through her undoubtedly "technical" lens, we are given the chance to make a new start, looking around through different points of view, through different perspectives... It may become the starting point of a really essential and more beautiful life for all of us. Text in English and Greek. N.B.Rear cover of d/j slightly marked.
