Ramsden, E.H.
Although the book centres on an intensive study of five specific pictures,united by a provocative Prologue and Epilogue,the quest for identities has necessitated a close consideration of a number of works by other painters.The 'myth' of Giorgione has been critically examined and evidence from an exceptionally wide field of studies has been advanced in support of the author's proposed solutions to a variety of long outstanding problems.219pp.

Lee, Thomas F.
As a biologist with over thirty years of experience teaching a wide range of complex biomedical subjects and a person who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) himself, Dr Thomas F Lee is ideally suited to write a book that addresses the vital questions about the nature of the disease and the rationale behind its treatment. This is the only book that explains in layperson's terms the newest available therapies and the latest advances in our understanding of this often debilitating disease. These new insights have led to many molecular-based approaches already in clinical trial, and many more are waiting in the wings. All of these exciting developments are the result of the ongoing biotechnological revolution and a new understanding of the immune system aided by genetic research. Millions of people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a debilitating auto-immune disease that ravages the delicate lining of the joints. As in other auto-immune diseases, instead of defending against foreign invaders, the immune system inexplicably attacks healthy tissue. RA causes systemic effects as well; not only are joints painful, through the destruction of bone and cartilage, but there is often accompanying fatigue, decreased appetite, depression, and muscle pain. 255pp.

Edited By Salerno, Saverio; Gaeta, Matteo; Ritrovato, Pierluigi
Grid technologies are rising with the next generation of Internet by defining a powerful computing paradigm. Grid could be used as a technology "glue" providing users with a uniform way to access resources by means of several devices. These technologies can provide a support for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) by enabling new learning environments based on collaboration, real direct experience, personalization, ubiquity, accessibility and contextualization. Nevertheless, to be effectively used in TEL, Grid must be complemented with other elements like semantics and educational modeling; leading to the concept of "Learning Grid" as defined in the homonymous Special Interest Group (SIG) of the European Network of Excellence "Kaleidoscope: Shaping the Scientific Evolution of Technology Enhanced Learning".The key challenge that Kaleidoscope is facing is the scientific and structural integration of the European TEL research. In this context, the Learning Grid SIG aims at contributing to the achievement of an improvement in TEL practices through the definition of open, distributed and pervasive environments for effective human learning taking into account that effective learning requires an active attitude of learners and that learning is a social and collaborative activity so requiring a technology that allows for active and realistic experiments, personalization, knowledge creation and evolution, as well as autonomous and dynamic creation of communities. The first section of the book is about the concept of Learning Grid and related technologies. The second chapter analyses and compares existing languages for the dynamic composition of distributed learning resources and services in a Learning Grid. 245pp.

Markham, Leonard
York is one of the most visited cities in Europe, and in this book well-known Yorkshire author Len Markham explores many different facets of its long and extraordinary history - characters, institutions and achievements. We meet a Swiss confectioner who came to England to seek his fortune; on arrival in London, unable to speak a word of English, he was directed to the wrong station, boarded the wrong train and found himself in Yorkshire - where he founded the best-loved teashop in the country. We uncover the far from holy antics of York's former archbishops. We discover what prompted Hitler to order York's destruction. We shiver at the most haunted city in the world. And we learn all about 'Charlie Artful' - a detective who solved more murders than any other officer in the Murder Squad. This really is history with the boring bits left out - and anyone who lives in or visits the beautiful city of York will enjoy the tales that Len Markham tells. 151pp.
