Der perfekte Einstieg in die Neurowissenschaften – ideal zum Verstehen und Lernen Seit vielen Jahren zählt diese didaktisch durchdachte, verständlich geschriebene und hervorragend illustrierte Einführung zu den führenden Lehrbüchern im Bereich der Neurowissenschaften. Mit der Übersetzung liegt nun auch im deutschen Sprachraum ein modernes Grundlagenwerk zur Hirnforschung vor, das sich an Studierende der Biologie, der Medizin und der Psychologie gleichermaßen richtet. Der Bogen spannt sich von der Anatomie des Gehirns bis zur Sinnesphysiologie, von der Entwicklungsbiologie bis zum Verhalten, von den Störungen des Nervensystems bis zur Kognitionswissenschaft, von den molekularen Mechanismen bis zu den neuen bildgebenden Verfahren. Ein eigenständiger „Bildatlas der menschlichen Neuroanatomie“ erlaubt dem Lernenden, seine Kenntnisse der Hirnstrukturen zu überprüfen und zu erweitern. Jedes Kapitel endet mit Verständnisfragen und Übungsaufgaben sowie einer Zusammenstellung wichtiger weiterführender Literatur. In spannenden Exkursen berichten renommierte Wissenschaftler, wie sie zu ihren entscheidenden Entdeckungen kamen. So führt das Buch den Leser von den Grundlagen zu den aktuellen Forschungsthemen des Faches. Die von Andreas Engel herausgegebene deutsche Ausgabe ist an die hiesige Studiensituation angepasst und stellenweise erweitert. Ein elektronisches Zusatzangebot finden Sie auf www.spektrum-verlag.de/bear. Für Dozenten gibt es außerdem eine DVD mit sämtlichen Abbildungen für die Nutzung in der Lehre (ISBN 978-3-8274-2075-6). Den drei Verfassern des Buches gelingt, womit Lehrbuchautoren im deutschsprachigen Raum sich nach wie vor schwer tun: anschaulich und spannend den Leser vom Einstieg in die Grundlagen bis an die vorderste Front der Forschung mitzunehmen; ohne überflüssigen Ballast wissenschaftliche Erkenntnis mehr erzählend als erklärend zu vermitteln ... Ein didaktisches Meisterwerk ist nun endlich auch in deutscher Sprache verfügbar. Aus dem Vorwort von Prof. Andreas K. Engel, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf Dieser unveränderte Nachdruck ersetzt die bisherige ISBN 978-3-8274-2028-2 ((c) Springer Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2009, korr. Nachdruck 2012).

Etliche Beobachter sind der Ansicht, dass der Euro die aktuelle Krise nicht überleben wird. Anders die Ökonomen Markus Brunnermeier und Jean-Pierre Landau, ein Deutscher und ein Franzose, sowie der britische Wirtschaftshistoriker Harold James. Sie sehen ein Kernproblem des Euro in den unterschiedlichen Wirtschaftskulturen der Euroländer, insbesondere Deutschlands und Frankreichs, die es zu überwinden gilt. Seit der Eurokrise setzen die Mitgliedsländer wieder auf nationale Lösungen, statt gemeinsame Antworten auf die europäischen Probleme zu suchen. Der Kampf der Wirtschaftskulturen ist entbrannt. Während das föderal geprägte Deutschland in der Fiskalpolitik auf starren Regeln beharrt, verlangt das zentralistische Frankreich Stimulusprogramme und eine flexible Handhabung, die den Regierungen Ermessensspielräume lässt. Für die Deutschen sind Finanzierungsengpässe vorwiegend auf Insolvenzprobleme zurückzuführen, die struktureller Reformen bedürfen, wogegen die Franzosen sie als temporäre Liquiditätsprobleme ansehen, die mit einer staatlichen Überbrückungsfinanzierung zu bewältigen sind. Dieses Buch plädiert für die Überwindung dieser Frontstellungen zugunsten einer gemeinsamen europäischen Wirtschaftskultur. Es verbindet ökonomische Analyse und ideengeschichtliche Reflexion und entwirft einen Fahrplan für Europas Zukunft.

Die 8. Auflage des Campbell (deutsche Ausgabe BA 11/09) wurde jetzt unter Beachtung der hiesigen Lehrpläne für die Oberstufe bearbeitet und erschien in einem wesentlich handlicheren, schultaschenfähigen Format. Der Campbell hatte sich bereits früher als Zusatzlehrbuch für Leistungskurse Biologie und berufliche Gymnasien mit entsprechend fachlicher Ausrichtung bewährt. Diese für Schulen optimierte Ausgabe ist im Rahmen des Imprints Pearson Schule eine folgerichtige Edition (vgl. auch M. Kölling: "Einführung in Java mit Greenfoot"; R. Hattenhauer: "Informatik für Schule und Ausbildung", beide BA 9/10). Ein Themenband zur Ökologie ist für November diesen Jahres angekündigt. - Vorrangig ist der Band für Bibliotheken mit den oben angesprochenen Schultypen im Einzugsbereich zu empfehlen. Als allgemeines Biologielehrbuch ohne bundeslandspezifische Varianten ist der auch preislich sehr akzeptable Titel aufgrund seines fachlichen Niveaus und seiner grafisch hervorragenden Gestaltung auch darüber hinaus einsetzbar.
