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.

Hall, Stuart; Held, David; McGrew, Tony
Modernity and its Futures is a major introductory textbook which examines the forces reshaping modern industrial societies and the new patterns, structures and relationships that are emerging in the contemporary world. The key debates about these changes are introduced and critically discussed; they include the transformation of Eastern Europe, the collapse of the USSR, globalisation, environmental challenges, post industrialism, cultural change and post–modernism. The book also looks back to the formation of modern societies, and of social science, to explore the character of 'modernity' and the relationship between 'early–modern' and 'post–modern' societies, and assess whether the paradigms and theories used to analyse 'modern' societies are adequate for social formations today. 391pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners of covers slightly rubbed.

Neillands, Robin
This is the story, from New Year's Day to VE Day, 8 May 1945, of the conquest of Nazi Germany in the words of those who were there. It is the follow-up to Robin Neilland's "D-Day 1944: Voices from Normandy". The story is told in the words of ordinary people: American infantry, British paratroopers, Canadian gunners, Australian pilots, New Zealand POWs and German civilians. Neillands paints a broad picture, and tells of events from the participants viewpoint: the men who flew on the Dresden Raid or fought the battles in the Hurtgen Forest, The Bulge, the Reichwald, and at the Rhine Crossing, those who made the horrific discoveries of Belsen, Dachau, Buchenwald and Dora. He talks to those who survived the concentration camps, and to Allied POWs who lived through the Death Marches from the East. Previous owners label on inside cover. 301pp.
