Edited By Gustafson, Paula and Nisse & Gogarty, Amy
This volume features 21 essays and critical commentaries by acclaimed Canadian practitioners, educators and curators, demonstrating the range of critical thought about craft as presented in symposiums, exhibition catalogues and art journals. Over 40 full-colour photographs of works in craft media including fibre, ceramics, metal, wood and 'new materials' accompany the essays. The texts in this volume explore the conceptual, social and cultural significance of craft practice today, and describe new initiatives in conceptualising craft practices in contemporary life. Essays by prominent academics and theorists such as Sandra Alfoldy, Paul Mathieu, Arlene Oak, and Kirsty Robertson discuss craft in terms of political and social activism, gender theory, semiotics and aesthetics, analysing shifting boundaries between craft, fine art and design.Artists Mackenzie Frere, Murray Gibson and Ruth Scheuing discuss their own work, providing insight into the relationship between skill, technology, history and personal expression. The diversity of contemporary craft practice is well-represented in essays by Mireille Perron, Shannon Stratton, Glenn Allison and others, whose thoughtful analyses raise challenging questions about craft practice today. This volume substantiates academic advancement of craft curricula and provides an authoritative springboard for debate and discussion among craft practitioners, educators, curators and collectors.213pp.

Edited By Ramenghi, Luca A.; Evrard, Philippe and Mercuri, Eugenio
This volume is based on a highly successful conference dedicated to Perinatal brain damage: from pathogenesis to neuroprotection. Neonatologists, paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, obstetricians, basic researchers involved in neurosciences, as well as rehabilitation professionals, will be interested by this publication. The volume covers pathogenic aspects of brain lesions occurring in the fetal and neonatal period, and addresses the issues of diagnostic work-up and treatment. The most authoritative basic researchers, clinicians, and specialists in the field of neuroimaging, provide chapters on recent clinical advances. A subject of particular importance is the neurological vulnerability of the preterm infant, which also touches on ethical aspects of the care of high-risk preterm babies and those born from multiple pregnancies. A particularly original section focuses on cerebral white matter and the many issues related to this crucial part of the developing brain. Experts also deal with cerebral visual impairment, motor development, cognitive function, and the mechanisms underlying the neuronal plasticity of the infant's brain. Concepts of neuroprotection are also outlined, based on pharmacological agents tested on experimental animals and the best drugs used to treat neonatal convulsions.264pp.

Busch, John Laurence
Painstakingly researched, this book contains much never-before-published archival material, presented in traditional storytelling style while still adhering to the strict rules for historical revelation. The saga told chronicles the dawn of steam-powered vessels in the early 19th century, and the resistance to this first technology that allowed humans to artificially overcome Nature to practical effect. While the brilliant Robert Fulton's first 'steamboats' proved their worth on rivers, lakes and bays, there was deep skepticism that such vessels were capable of overcoming the unpredictable powers of the sea. To prove that it was possible for such a craft to cross the Atlantic Ocean, Captain Moses Rogers designed not a 'steamboat,' but a 'steamship,' the first of its kind. To most mariners, however, this vessel named Savannah seemed so dangerous that they considered it nothing more than a 'steam coffin.' 726pp. N.B. Slight creasing to head and tail of D/J spine.
