Gold, Jerome
In this title, publishers from 31 independent presses talk about how they came to publishing and why they stayed (or didn't), the mistakes they made, their relationships with authors, the problems of growth, definitions of success, why they do or do not seek grants, their relationships with distributors, bookstores, New York and Toronto, and each other. More than just a directory, "Publishing Lives" presents these publishers as the spiritual heirs of the nineteenth-century founders of the great New York houses. 570pp. N.B. Bottom corners of boards slightly bumped.

Edited By Picazo,J.
An account of the use of the gastrointestinal hormone glucagon in different clinical emergencies. An international group of experts from different fields of medicine cover a wide range of situations within acute medicine: cardiology; internal medicine; endocrinology; diabetology; clinical toxicology; surgery; paediatrics; gastroenterology; hepatology; and radiology. Based on an International Workshop held in Barcelona in October 1992, this volume contributes to the growing interest in the importance of glucagon both as a diagnostic tool and as a therapeutic agent in acute medicine. It should be of value to physicians and emergency and critical care specialists as well as to researchers interested in this hormone. 172pp.

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.

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.
