Variend, S.
A practical approach to problems commonly encountered in paediatric tumour diagnosis. It comprehensively covers a wide range of common and unusual entities. Over 300 full-colour illustrations are complemented by a text which is pragmatic and succinct. References have been carefully selected to reflect current thought and well-written reviews. New treatment strategies have led to considerable improvement in the salvage rate and prognosis in childhood neoplasia. Histological diagnosis in this area is fraught with problems and the demand invariably has been for a prompt and accurate histological reporting. The problems, although wide-ranging, are particularly manifest in the area of the small round-cell tumours which constitute an important proportion of paediatric cancers. This atlas should be valuable as a bench manual for the practising pathologist and as a study aid for the trainee. It should also be of interest to all oncologists and paediatricians. 124pp.N.B.Small fade mark at base of d/j spine.

Evans, Max
315pp.Mildred Clark Cusey was a whore, a madam, an entrepreneur, and above all, a survivor. The story of Silver City Millie, as she referred to herself, is the story of one woman's personal tragedies and triumphs as an orphan, a Harvey Girl waitress on the Santa Fe railroad, a prostitute with innumerable paramours, and a highly successful bordello businesswoman. Millie broke the mould in so many ways, and yet her life's story of survival was not unlike that of thousands of women who went West only to find that their most valuable assets were their physical beauty and their personality. Petite at five feet tall with piercing blue eyes, Millie captured men's attention by her very essence and her unmistakable joie de vivre. Born to Italian immigrant parents near Kansas City, she and her sister were orphaned early and separated from each other. Millie learned hard lessons on the streets, but she never gave up and she vowed to protect and support her ailing older sister. Caught in a domestic squabble in her foster home, Millie wound up in juvenile court with Harry Truman as her judge. This would be only the first of many brushes in her life with prominent politicians. When doctors diagnosed her sister with tuberculosis and recommended she move West to a Catholic home in Deming, New Mexico, Millie moved with her. Expenses ran high and after a brief stint waiting tables as a Harvey Girl, Millie found that her meagre tips could easily be augmented by turning tricks. Thus, out of financial need and devotion to her sister, Mildred Cusey turned to a life of prostitution and a career at which she soon excelled and became both rich and famous.

Lindsey, Gene
Saudi Arabia is the centre of religious life for over one billion Muslims. It is the birthplace of Islam, Wahhabism, Osama bin Laden and most of the 9/11 hijackers. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia controls over one quarter of the world's diminishing oil reserves and billions of dollars worth of investments in the West and is often referred to as the only 'family-owned business in the United Nations'. The way the Saudis think, express themselves, act, work and solve problems is of increasing and overwhelming significance to the world. This candid, penetrating view of the culture, history and evolution of Saudi Arabia offers a thorough understanding of how the country developed and why things are as they are. 410pp.
