Lee, Thomas F.
As a biologist with over thirty years of experience teaching a wide range of complex biomedical subjects and a person who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) himself, Dr Thomas F Lee is ideally suited to write a book that addresses the vital questions about the nature of the disease and the rationale behind its treatment. This is the only book that explains in layperson's terms the newest available therapies and the latest advances in our understanding of this often debilitating disease. These new insights have led to many molecular-based approaches already in clinical trial, and many more are waiting in the wings. All of these exciting developments are the result of the ongoing biotechnological revolution and a new understanding of the immune system aided by genetic research. Millions of people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a debilitating auto-immune disease that ravages the delicate lining of the joints. As in other auto-immune diseases, instead of defending against foreign invaders, the immune system inexplicably attacks healthy tissue. RA causes systemic effects as well; not only are joints painful, through the destruction of bone and cartilage, but there is often accompanying fatigue, decreased appetite, depression, and muscle pain. 255pp.

Hyland, Paul
This title is a study in vanity and ambition, madness and resignation. Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the greatest courtiers of his day, Elizabeth's favourite, dashing, brilliant, wily and powerful. This book book takes as its subject his extraordinary last months, during the summer of 1618 when, his last voyage a failure and under great suspicion from James I, he was escorted back to London by Sir Lewis Stucley; the tragi-comic story of this journey, from Plymouth to the scaffold, of Raleigh's grotesque behaviour along the way, of the web of deceit and counter-treachery woven between him and his reviled and much misunderstood betrayer "Judas" Stucley, and of their travelling companion the French physician and double agent Dr Manourie. Around this last journey will be linked the other players in the drama: Bess, Raleigh's handsome, resourceful and distracted wife; Carew, their 13-year-old son; and Samuel King, privateering captain and link with past glories. On countless occasions Raleigh has the opportunity to escape, and refuses it; then, when he at last opts for freedom (in a false beard), he finds himself betrayed again. 242pp.

Sherman, Howard J.; Schultz, Ron
Drawing from groundbreaking research at the Santa Fe Center for Emergent Strategies, new insights on applying complexity thinking in business to break out of old patterns and imagine new possibilities. In Open Boundaries , Howard Sherman and Ron Schultz bring fresh insights from the field of complexity thinking (the study of dynamic, adaptive systems) to unleash creativity and innovation throughout the organization by helping readers understandand even challengethe underlying principles, cognitive models, and rules that govern their decisions and actions. Showcasing the pioneering efforts of such organizations as diverse as Applied Biosystems and the U.S. Marine Corps, the authors illustrate the power of complexity in actionfrom creating new markets to spreading emerging knowledge throughout the company. }Todays businesses are constantly under pressure to innovateto develop new products, processes, and even organizational structuresin order to remain vibrant and healthy. But many businesses fall into the trap of doing more of the same, only faster. How can they break free of old patterns without overextending their resources or losing sight of their core goals and capabilities?In Open Boundaries, Howard Sherman and Ron Schultz bring fresh, new insights from the field of complexity thinkingthe study of dynamic evolving systemsto unleash creativity and innovation throughout the organization. Drawing from their groundbreaking research at the Santa Fe Center for Emergent Strategies, the authors challenge readers to explore the underlying principles, cognitive models, and rules that govern their decisions and actions to revealand, more importantly, overcomeobstacles to innovation and growth. Open Boundaries introduces a practical vocabulary to help managers understand, analyze, and nurture the creative process by eschewing linear cause-and-effect approaches to decision making in favor of an approach that thrives on ambiguity and unpredictability. Showcasing the pioneering efforts of such organizations as Xerox-PARC, Applied Biosystems, Patagonia, and the United States Marine Corps, the authors vividly illustrate the power of complexity thinking in actionfrom creating new markets to establishing new ways of spreading emerging knowledge throughout the company.Ultimately, Open Boundaries is about ideas, the most powerful of which is realizing that organizations are not mechanical entities, but living systems that are constantly adjusting and adapting to both internal and external forces of change. By embracing this perspective, businesses can become far more creative, innovative, and profitable than they might have ever thought possible.
