Nissimi, Hilda
This book tells the little-known story of a fascinating crypto-Jewish community through two centuries and three continents. Beginning as a precarious settlement of a few families in mid-eighteenth-century Mashhad, an Islamic holy city in northern Iran, the community grew into a closely-knit group in response to their forced conversion to Islam in 1839. Muslim hostility and a culture of memory sustained by intra-communal marriages reinforced their separate religious identity, vesting it in strong family and communal loyalty. Mashhadi women became the main agents of the cultural transmission of communal identity and achieved social roles and high status uncharacteristic for contemporary Jewish and Muslim communities. The Mashhadis maintained a double identity - upholding Islam in public while tenaciously holding onto their Jewish identity in secret. The exodus from Mashhad after 1946 relocated the communal centre to Tehran, and later to Israel and after the Khomeini revolution to New York. The relationship between the formation and retention of communal identity and memory practices - with interconnected issues of religion and gender - draws upon existing research on other crypto-faith communities, such as the Judeoconversos, the Moriscos, and the French Protestants, who through the special blend of memory-faith and ethnicity emerged strengthened from their underground period. For the immigration period, the author challenges the old paradigm that "modernity and religion are mutually exclusive". The book also explores the sometimes uncomfortable yet intimate relationships that exist between seemingly incompatible ways of seeing the past, both secular and religious.180pp.

Feature interaction is a phenomenon well-known to the designers of modern feature-rich telephone switching systems (public or private). This phenomenon occurs when one feature modifies or subverts the operation of another one. This work brings together representatives of the telecommunications industry, the software industry, and the research community, working on various aspects of the problem in order to discuss possible solutions and their practical applications, as well as setting directions for further research. 329pp.

Lote, Christopher J.
The strengths of this popular text -- its conciseness and logical progression through renal physiology and pathophysiology -- are retained in the 4th edition. The text has been updated throughout, and the content has been expanded to make the book eminently suitable for `systems-based' courses. The book is designed for the needs of medical undergraduates but many doctors are likely to find it useful too.203pp.
