Your body is much more than a collection of organs. It is a masterpiece, waiting to be discovered. Over the course of his career as an emergency physician, Dr. Anoop Kumar has come to recognize that what we have learned about the human body is remarkably incomplete and outdated. In these pages, he offers insights into: > Why reconsidering what we've been told about our bodies is essential to healing and well-being. > What the complete anatomy of a human being looks like. > How a new framework for understanding the human body will help create a more inclusive and complete health care system. > What you can do now to start experiencing well-being . Personal and profound, these pages take us inside the mind of an emergency physician as he realizes that honoring his patients and his profession requires challenging the dogma of medical science and offering a unifying vision for well-being and health care.

Performing Arts Medicine (PAM) is a growing area of specialization within the performing arts field, which addresses the multi-faceted health and wellness of performing artists. This sub-discipline within performing arts is interdisciplinary in nature, involving the expertise of performing arts educators and researchers, physicians and other health professionals. This first of its kind text appeals to a very wide audience that includes performing arts clinical practitioners and health science researchers as well as performing arts pedagogues and performing arts students. The first part of the text gives the reader an overview of the field and discusses over-arching themes and issues in PAM. Part two presents an array of music and dance research involving primarily case studies that address significant issues of concern for performing artists and have implications for pedagogical practice. Part three provides research-based perspectives derived from professionals sharing their in-practice experiences. Finally, part four describes useful PAM models of implementation supporting the needs of performing artists in different settings. Written by experts in the field, Perspectives in Performing Arts Medicine Practice is a valuable resource for performing arts physicians, educators and researchers.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
At thirty one, Michelangelo was considered the finest artist in Italy, perhaps the world; long before he died at almost 90 he was widely believed to be the greatest sculptor or painter who had ever lived (and, by his enemies, to be an arrogant, uncouth, swindling miser). For decade after decade, he worked near the dynamic centre of events: the vortex at which European history was changing from Renaissance to Counter Reformation. Few of his works - including the huge frescoes of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the marble giant David and the Last Judgment - were small or easy to accomplish. Like a hero of classical mythology - such as Hercules, whose statue he carved in his youth - he was subject to constant trials and labours. In Michelangelo Martin Gayford describes what it felt like to be Michelangelo Buonarroti, and how he transformed forever our notion of what an artist could be.

William Rimmer (1816-1879) has long been considered an important figure in American art. He has been mentioned in all the major surveys of nineteenth-century American art, yet this is the first book devoted solely to him since 1946, when the last major exhibition of his work was held. Directed at an educated, popular audience, the book contains information on all of Rimmer's major work and presents many new findings about his life. In spite of the many developments in American rat research in the past four decades, RImmer has remained a particularly elusive figure - hard to know and harder still to categorize within the larger context of American art and style. This book reestablishes the details of Rimmer's career and reconsiders the quality of his artistry. -- from back cover.

This book uses a broadsheet print of the martyrdom of the Carthusians of the London Charterhouse during the reign of Henry VIII as a springboard to investigate several aspects of the Counter Reformation. Through an in-depth investigation of the text and images, Anne Dillon provides a lively account that connects Michelangelo, Cardinal Pole, Mary Tudor and Pope Julius III, and weaves them into a wider discussion of martyrology, polemic and the Catholic community in England and beyond.

A thorough knowledge of pharmacological and therapeutic principles is vital if drugs are to be used safely and effectively for increasingly informed patients. Those who clearly understand how drugs get into the body, how they produce their effects, what happens to them in the body, and how evidence of their therapeutic effect is assessed, will choose drugs more skilfully, and use them more safely and successfully than those who do not. Now in a fully revised 11th edition, Clinical Pharmacology is essential reading for undergraduate medical students, junior doctors and anyone concerned with evidence-based drug therapy. Introductory first three sections cover general principle of clinical pharmacology; five subsequent sections cover drug treatment of disease organised by body system. Retains approachable style set by the original author, Professor Laurence. Emphasis throughout is on evidence-based and safe drug prescribing.
