Edited By Collins,G.M.;Dubernard,J.M.;Land,W. And Persijn,G.G.
This volume includes all procedures and practices relating to the selection of organ donors, removal of organs, preservation and allocation for a successful transplantation. The improving preservation solutions as well as the improving survival rates of transplant patients should make it a useful book on all aspects of transplantation. The chapters are divided into four sections: donor conditioning and surgery; organ preservation; allocation and logistics; ethics and legislation in organ donation. The growing awareness of the need for organ donation and adaptation of laws, as well as the increasing efforts of the transplantation organizations to stimulate organ donation, makes this text a timely publication. This book is aimed at medical specialists in any hospital involved, or potentially involved, in organ procurement, transplant co-ordinators and administrators, transplant surgeons, nephrologists and other organ specialists and researchers. The chapters on surgical techniques are illustrated with original artwork by Bernard Tardieu.381pp. Slight fade mark at base of spine.

Kelsohn, Caroline S. (editor)
178pp.Thomas Jefferson once envisioned the United States as a 'nation of yeomen farmers'. Looking around today, however, illustrates that nothing could be further from the truth. In a globalised world and techno-centred society, urban sprawl is overtaking rural America. For over a century, farming was the backbone of the American economy, and though it is still critical to American productivity, many rural areas are plagued by poverty and job reduction. Agricultural issues have a hold over national politics (as in the debates over farm subsidies), but they cannot change several significant trends in America today: the movement toward fewer and larger farms, environmental pressures from urban and suburban interests, and changing food consumption patterns. In order to assist the remaining 'yeomen farmers', a comprehensive and integrated agricultural policy must be initiated to sustain the nation's farming communities. This book analyses the status of the farm industry in rural America, providing a historical context for agriculture and assessing its future for the nation. Rural America and the numberless families it encompasses cannot be neglected, and the information provided in this book is necessary to understanding the nature of what has historically been a key component of American industry and life.

Edited By Fleming, Walter Lynwood
The purpose of these two final volumes is to round out this historical account by focusing on the Southern men and women who have contributed in a marked degree to the life and development of the South and the nation. Written from a sympathetic point of view, volume XI and XII constitute a quick reference to these leaders. Limitations of space may have led to the omission of some figures that another collection might have included. No attempt at glorification is made, and accuracy of social and historical setting is a priority. Character, personality, and individuality have always been treasured in the South. Those qualities are celebrated here. Volume XII lists entries for individuals with last names starting with the letters from K to Z., including Robert E. Lee, Meriwether Lewis and Jeb Stuart. 576pp.PLEASE NOTE THIS BOOK NUMBER REFERS TO VOLUME 11,VOLUME 12 BIOGRAPHY K-Z IS ALSO AVAILABLE SEE OUR LISTING BOOK NUMBER #006490.
