Masellis,M. And Gunn,S.W.A.
This book is a sequel to "The Management of Mass Burn Casualties and Fire Disasters" by the same editors. Like its predecessor, this book is a continuing reflection of commitment to the reduction of fire disasters and the improvement of burn therapy. The health professions have been continually developing effective management in burn therapy; in parallel, the community has been mobilizing fire prevention and fire fighting mechanisms that protect the environment from ever-increasing hazards of disasters. This work reflects their efforts. 603pp.

Zhivov, Victor
Victor Zhivov's magisterial "Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia" tells the story of the creation of a new vernacular literary language in modern Russia, an achievement arguably on a par with the nation's extraordinary military successes, territorial expansion, development of the arts and formation of a modern empire. The language served as the primary vehicle for Russia's modernization and for its entry into the Western European cultural sphere, and Zhivov demonstrates that the unusually intense debates over it, down to violent disagreements over particular grammatical endings, have profound implications for understanding the basic social, political, and cultural dynamics of the era. "Language and Culture" analyzes the European theories concerning modern literary languages that were transplanted into Russia and demonstrates the ways in which they were creatively transformed when adapted to the complex legacy of medieval and seventeenth-century literary culture. Zhivov traces this creative adaptation from the "hybrid Slavonic" of the late seventeenth century; through Peter the Great's demand for a new Russian vernacular literary language; to the "Slaveno-Russian" linguistic and cultural synthesis of mid-century and the beginnings of a Russian literary tradition; to the early nineteenth-century debates between "archaists and innovators"; and fi nally to the subsequent decoupling of secular and religious language and culture that in his view represented the last echo of eighteenth-century debates. Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia fundamentally revises much of the received wisdom concerning the development of the literary language and offers fundamentally new perspectives on the genesis and development of modern Russian language, literature, and culture. 506pp. N.B. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine very slightly bumped.

Stein, Joel B.
This is the ultimate guide to getting the most out of your visit to the City Different. With the aid of this book and the internet, you can plan your trip using over 1,000 links to sites belonging to hotels, restaurants, historical sites, museums, retail stores, galleries, spas, pueblos and special places just outside the city. This book was designed for the traveller who stays for a few days, a week or perhaps a little longer. It highlights everything to see in this centuries-old city and takes you to the places you are most likely to enjoy, the places that provide the most immediate contact with the rich history of one of the oldest cities in America, where three cultures interact separately and together to create a rich and unique cultural mosaic. The guide covers key travel information, a downtown walking tour, and diversions: from the famed Santa Fe Opera, to the unique Tesuque Pueblo Flea Market, to the legendary artist colony on Canyon Road. Also included are historical buildings and art galleries, museums, restaurants with a past, lodgings of historical value, shopping and spas, the countryside from Abiquiu to Taos, outdoor activities from hiking to skiing, the Pueblos, their feast days and casinos, places of worship, secret spots for taking those special pictures, and major yearly events and celebrations. World-renowned photographer Marcia Keegan lavishly illustrates every section with corresponding photographs. Internet links guide you to the actual web sites of the places covered, where you can learn a great deal before you even get to Santa Fe! If you will be pressed for time, you can also use the sites to help you decide before arrival which actual places you are most interested in spending your valuable time and money.220pp.
