This classic guide offers an accessible initiation into the mysteries of violin-making. Charming in its style and cultivated in its research, it covers every detail of the process, from wood selection to varnish. A fascinating history of the instrument precedes discussions of materials and construction techniques. More than 200 diagrams, engravings, and photographs complement the text. Author Edward Heron-Allen served an apprenticeship with Georges Chanot, a preeminent nineteenth-century violin maker. The knowledge, skill, and experience Heron-Allen acquired in the master's shop are reflected in this book, which was the first to combine the history, theory, and practice of violin-making. Originally published in 1884 as "Violin-Making, As It Was and Is: Being a Historical, Theoretical and Practical Treatise on the Science and Art of Violin-Making for the Use of Violin Makers and Players, Amateur and Professional, "this volume has enlightened and informed generations of performers and players alike.

The importance of conservation is growing each year, with increasing concerns over the destruction of biodiversity and the rising awareness of ecosystem services generating new debates on the human-nature relationship. This compact overview integrates the process, theory and practice of conservation for a broad readership, from non-specialists to students and practitioners. Taking a global perspective, it uses examples from around the world to illustrate general themes and show how problems arise from the impact of societal trends on ecological communities. A significant practical component will be particularly valuable for environmental professionals, outlining the requirements for rigorous surveys, biodiversity valuation, the assessment of impact and its mitigation. Thoroughly revised and updated, this second edition reflects trends towards embracing multiple disciplines, considering the links between ecology and the social sciences and bringing conservation to the heart of sustainability and environmental policy.
'This book is exceptional in many ways. It captures the essence of the naturalist's fascination with the diversity of life while at the same time covering comprehensively the history and basics of conservation biology and the importance of conservation for the future of our planet. I am particularly pleased with the attention to priority-setting, and other important issues such as corridors, rewilding, the fundamental importance of species, and how essential ecosystem services derive from biodiversity. In the post Rio+20 world, there is growing recognition of the fact that nature must be central to sustainable development and not just an interesting side issue. This book makes a major contribution to demonstrating this, and overall greatly enhances our understanding of conservation in general. A must read for everyone, and especially for students, researchers, and conservation practitioners.' Russell A. Mittermeier, President, Conservation International'This is an updated edition of an important book, by two experienced and very knowledgeable people. Aimed at a broad readership, it ranges widely from basic ecological understanding to relevant areas of policy and social science, giving effective guidance for conservation action.' Robert M. May OM AC FRS, University of Oxford'… an outstanding summary of conservation, the issues facing biodiversity, and how working at a multidisciplinary level can achieve positive results. It will be of particular value to students at all levels, and should become a standard textbook especially for undergraduates. I only wish this book had been published when I was at university.' Ibis'For students or practitioners who seek a wide-ranging but not-too-technical introduction to core topics of conservation biology, this volume will serve well.' Barry W. Brook, Quarterly Review of Biology'… the coverage is impressive … a well-written and well-illustrated account … will end up as the standard basic textbook in many undergraduate and masters level courses. I would also recommend it as a course textbook because it is cheap enough for students to buy their own copies!' Robert H. Marrs, Biological Conservation
An attack by a British destroyer on a German U-boat in the Eastern Mediterranean in October 1942 altered the course of the entire war. The capture of secret coding material from U-559, at the cost of two of HMS Petard's crew, enabled Bletchley Park's codebreakers to successfully crack the U-boat cypher

In this riveting and spellbinding exposé of the second coming of Christ, Steven Medley guides and directs the reader in the most strategic and methodical manner, skillfully and masterfully choreographing a meticulously crafted dissection of the most profound Biblical prophecies in order to create a thought-provoking step-by-step analysis of the imminent return of Jesus. Over the course of tens of thousands of hours dedicated to the study and research of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible, Medley has uncovered one of the most mysteriously disguised time lines, which uniquely spells out the otherwise unperceivable details that would proceed and accompany Christ's return. While others have vaguely and ambiguously formulated their theories as to the timing of this momentous event, Medley allows the Scriptures themselves to paint a most thorough and detailed portrait, adding great clarity while providing an extensive series of proofs in order to consummate his remarkable finding: we are that final generation. It is a masterful examination of the hidden mysteries that lie beneath the pages of prophetic Scripture as it pertains to the elusive understanding of the end-times. It is an utterly artistic and stylistic approach to what is perhaps the most speculative and hotly debated question that pertains to the entire Bible: when will Jesus come again? It is a must read for both serious students of the biblically prophetic as well as for the casual novice. It is sure to leave the reader deeply intrigued and scratching his head in pure astonishment.

Most Anticipated Book of 2017 at Publishers Weekly, BuzzFeed, and more. A book-length poem about how an American Indian writer can't bring himself to write about nature, but is forced to reckon with colonial-white stereotypes, manifest destiny, and his own identity as an young, queer, urban-dwelling poet
Nature PoemProblematic expectations are wryly discussed . . . In making the subliminal overt, Pico reclaims power by calling out microaggressions and drawing attention to himself in the face of oppression.--Publishers Weekly, Starred ReviewHumor lays the groundwork for a hard truthA thrilling punk rock epic that is a tour of all we know and can't admit to.Pico centers his second book-length poem on the trap of conforming to identity stereotypes as he ponders his reluctance to write about nature as a Native American . . . In making the subliminal overt, Pico reclaims power by calling out microaggressions and drawing attention to himself in the face of oppression.--Publishers Weekly, Starred ReviewInstead of following the conventions of the pastoral tradition, in which nature is revered, Pico adopts a tragicomic view. On the one hand, the land of his native people can be described with great reverence, desert nights that "chill and sparkle and swoon with metal/ lighting up the dark universe." On the other, that same landscape carries and extends legacies of racism and genocide that Pico is determined not to forget.--The San Francisco ChroniclePico has pulled me out of a poetry slump. His poems make me want to live with more poetry, to read, write and revel in poetry as a form that does not have to be a container.--Brooklyn MagazineFew people capture New York, queerness, and the artful use of hashtags in a poem quite like Tommy Pico.--NYLON
If 9/11 was the great pretext for war and fascism in the USA, London's 7/7 bombings brought Britain quickly closer to an Orwellian police state. Is there a basis to the "war on terror" - or is the state itself terrorizing the British populace?The answer is in this compelling investigation. In its indictment of the prime suspects - the UK, US and Israeli secret services. In its demolition of the fabricated evidence they brought into play. In its posthumous exoneration of four innocent young men, sacrificed and framed to shore up the rule of a crime cabal over our planet. In this appeal against the fascist propaganda trick of false-flag terror.Author Nick Kollerstrom has assembled the evidence and solved the mystery of the 7/7 bombings: something Britain's billion-budget security apparatus will never do.

In order to provide sound, person-centred care, mental health nursing students need a thorough understanding of theory alongside the ability to translate this knowledge into practice. It can be difficult to apply ideas from the classroom and books when learning how to work with mental health service users for the first time. That is why the theoretical aspects of this book are presented alongside realistic accounts of nursing practice.
Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursingis a case-based and service user centred textbook for mental health nursing students. Designed to support students throughout their pre-registration studies, the text covers the essential knowledge required to provide high quality nursing care.Contributions from real service users and cases of fictional clients are explored in detail to provide excellent transferable skills for practice.
Dedicated chapters explore fundamental nursing skills and mental health law before providing a case-based exploration of the areas and subjects that will be encountered by students in university and placement. Practice-based chapters introduce students to the needs of a diverse range of fictional clients and explain how the skills of communication, assessment, care planning and monitoring can be applied. Each chapter provides a sample care plan explaining why and how clinical decisions are made, so that students can develop their own skills and practice. The text opens with clear advice to help students succeed in their studies and concludes with a wealth of practical and thoughtful advice on becoming a professional and getting that first job.
Online Resource Centre * Twenty one video clips of fictional service users demonstrate the application of theory and prepare students for real nursing practice * Quizzes, scenarios and a range of activities help students to apply their learning * Interactive glossary explains terminology and jargon * Sample CV's and self awareness exercises aid professionaldevelopment
The knowledge base and skills necessary for mental health nurses undertaking pre-registration courses are clearly presented in this informative text. There are many texts recommended to mental health nurse students. If you can only afford one, go for this one. (Mental Health Practice, June 2009)I can't find anything to compare to this book, no other text has everything in one place. I just found the chapters so friendly and captivating - they inform my knowledge further...I can't wait to recommend this to student nurses. (Justin Watts, Student Nurse Mentor, employed within Plymouth Teaching Primary Care NHS Trust.)I would recommend it as a main text for the mental health pre-reg branch programme. The text has been written in a consistent, user centred style with realistic scenarios which recognise the contemporary challenges of modern day mental health practice. (Dr Steve Tee, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing, Southampton University School of Nursing and Midwifery)This book is extremely user friendly and very useful for new comers to the profession or those attempting to teach it. I recommend this book for all mental health nursing students to beg, borrow or buy. (Amazon.co.uk reviewer)
