Editor Tilden, Jill
This volume explores the rich diversity of Asian art. The range of subjects examined includes silk in China under the Northern Song, Indonesian royal and ethnic gold, Islamic arhcitecture in the Deccan, a Persian manuscript of Sa'di's "Gulistan", Khmer sculpture and Mughal red-ground "grotesque" carpets. It highlights the complex interactions of Far and Near Eastern traditions as artistic and religious ideas were transmitted first along the Silk Road, and then as a result of the extensive conquests of Genghis Khan and Timur. The book forms part of the "Hali Annual" series which presents essays on Asian art.198pp.Plus adverts. N.B. Scuff mark to front D/J.

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.

Goldsmith, Zac
The earth's resources are finite, climate change threatens to dramatically transform how and where we live, and the global economic system is in disarray. One way or another we have to change. In this brilliant and timely book Zac Goldsmith argues here for the creation of what he calls 'a constant economy'. Since the industrial revolution, our economies have grown at the expense of the natural world. We can deny the need for change, in which case we will be at the mercy of events and the adjustments will be harsh. Or, as this book shows, there is an alternative. A 'constant economy' is one in which resources are valued not wasted, where food is grown sustainably and goods are built to last. It is a system whose energy security is based on the use of renewable sources, and communities are valued as a country's strongest hedge against social, economic and environmental instability. The constant economy operates at the human scale, and above all it recognizes nature's limits. Zac Goldsmith's landmark book will explain and inspire. He shows that almost everything that needs be done to support the environment is already being done somewhere in the world. And where companies, communities and even governments have blazed a trail, they have not only done the right thing, their customers - and their voters - have rewarded them for doing the right thing. Solutions exist, they work, and they are laid out in this ground-breaking book. 200pp.
