Edited By Allen,Garland E. And MacLeod,Roy M.
This book highlights not only aspects of the career of Everett Mendelsohn, one of the premier historians of biology of our age, but also a wide range of topics that are now grouped under the general heading of science studies. This broad collection includes articles on the relations between science and the military, science as narrative, natural history and conservation, Marxism and science, the Human Genome Project, and the relation of philosophy to the study of embryonic development in the 18th century. This book is essential not only for those who admire Professor Mendelsohn's work but also for those who want a slice of the current field of science studies. The main readership of this volume consists of historians of science, technology, and medicine, and sociologists of science. The book will also appeal to philosophers of science and biologists. Those interested in Middle Eastern studies will find the discussion of Professor Mendelsohn's political work in this area, as well as the article dealing with his activism in general, of considerable interest.388pp.Volume 228 in the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science Series.

Sinha, Gayatri
Krishen Khanna speaks of his drawing as an intuitive process, "I start to scratch the surface of piece of paper. Soon enough, the pencil moves as if of its own accord, putting my hand this way and that rather like a pencil in a planchet creating a nervous scribble meaningful only to the directing ghost..." In an output of painting that exceeds fifty years, Khanna attracts more than one reading of his work. His paintings and drawings emerge as nuanced narratives in which the artist plays out his formal concerns, as well as the shifting and unfolding theatre of human relationships. Politics and identity remain fluid in the larger question of humanity. Effectively, the paintings constitute a powerful psychological engagement, one that also serves as a document of the passage of time in modern India. While many Indian artists during these decades have slipped in and out of experimentation with other media, Khanna has remained faithful to painting and drawing as central to his art practice. Retrospectively, in a career that has spanned nearly six decades, his large body of work places him at the apex of engagement with everyday Indian life. 120pp.

Gill, C. S.
This book provides a consolidated, comprehensive and yet accessible list of terms and acronyms that are used regularly in agriculture and with all the associated problems of usage of originally discrete technical terms. The book offers an up-to-date list of terms currently in use in biotechnology, genetic engineering and closely allied fields. It is intended to provide a convenient reference source for researchers, students and technicians. The work has been prepared in response to an expressed need. The terms included have been selected by examination of books, dictionaries, journals and abstracts dealing entirely or in part with culture or allied fields. The work is designed to give readers direct insight into the error sources occurring in their profession, especially those resulting from a poor understanding of the subject matter and the usage of particular terms to designate different concepts in different agriculture and plant engineering. Carefully reviewed for clarity, completeness, and accuracy, the book offers a standard of excellence unmatched by any similar publication. 426pp. N.B. Edges and corners of boards, spine and D/J bumped. Small closed tear to bottom edge of front D/J.
