McCalman, Iain
Darwin's Armada tells the stories of Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley, Joseph Hooker and Alfred Wallace, four young amateur naturalists from Britain who voyaged to the southern hemisphere during the first half of the nineteenth century in search of adventure and scientific fame. It charts their thrilling voyages to the strange and beautiful lands of the southern hemisphere that reshaped the young mariners' scientific ideas and led them, on returning to Britain, to befriend fellow voyager Charles Darwin. All three crucially influenced the publication and reception of his Origin of Species in 1859, one of the formative texts of the modern world. For the first time the Darwinian revolution of ideas is seen as a genuinely collective enterprise and one that had its birth in a series of gripping and human travel adventures. Many of the most urgent ecological and social issues of our times are seen to be prefigured in this compelling story of intellectual discovery.

Pearce, Oliver
This book represents a review of all the subjects with which a junior doctor needs to be effortlessly conversant in their postgraduate surgical exams in order to qualify as a specialist trainee. It covers a full range of subjects, concisely written to aid the revision process and includes basic science, physiology, anatomy, examination techniques, operative surgery and clinical surgery topics. The latter two sections are further subdivided into their relevant surgical speciality for clarity and ease of learning: general surgery, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, ENT surgery, breast and endocrine surgery, and urology.The physiology section is further sub-divided into the following areas: respiratory, cardiac, renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and general. The purpose of the book is to pull together the main subject areas to provide a coherent overview of the facts, as well as the principles, which examiners are looking for when deciding whether a doctor has the requisite skills and knowledge to proceed further with their training in surgery as a specialist. It contains essential required information, which would otherwise take months to gather by reading a variety of textbooks, each one specifically aimed at its own specialist topic.N.B.Spine slightly bumped.418pp.

Calvet, Laouis-Hean
This is a biography of Roland Barthes - one of the most important European intellectuals of the post-war years. In a lively account of Barthes's life and work, Calvet follows the brilliant semiotician from his provincial origins to his sudden death in 1980. He describes Barthes's move to Paris as a child, where he lived with his mother in modest surroundings and constant hardship. He argues that the experience of having his academic prospects ruined by his illness at an early age remained a thorn in Barthes's flesh: until the end of his life his relationship with the academic world was never free of bitterness, even resentment. Calvet retraces his years in Paris, Bucharest and Alexandria after the war. During this period Barthes gained access to intellectual circles and experienced his decisive encounter with modern linguistics, particularly with "semiotics", which he helped to establish as a discipline through his work on everyday myths, fashion and literature. Calvet discusses the whole range of Barthes's work as a critic and literary theorist, and demonstrates his tremendous importance and influence in the second half of the 20th century. This book provides a detailed portrait of Barthes's life, and a vivid reconstruction of the intellectual culture of post-war France. It should be of interest to students and researchers in literature, cultural studies, French studies, and anyone interested in the life and work of Roland Barthes. 291pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to half title page.
