The only comprehensive book in the field, this text is a veritable encyclopedia of medical genetics. The third edition has been updated in so many ways it is practically a new book, but it carries on its reputation from previous editions as the dominant work on the subject worldwide. Highly authoritative and clinically focused, the text covers the whole field of medical genetics, including an introductory section on basic principles of the subject - which has been completely updated.The book's contributors are among the foremost experts on the conditions which they describe. It is pitched at a level useful to clinical geneticists, but also accessible to other specialists (paediatricians, haematologists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, oncologists, general physicians) needing guidance on genetic matters. Where previously the book went only as far as diagnosis, it now includes focus on management of conditions and contains 30 new clinical chapters. Features: * Revised section on basic principles: up-to-date information on molecular and cytogenetic assays including recombinant DNA, PCR amplification, blot analysis, and in situ hybridization protocols * Full-color examples of FISH probes and chromosomal painting * More focus on the clinical aspects of genetics including photographs of the full spectrum of clinical phenotypes * Latest information on teratology * An up-to-date human gene map contributed by Victor McKusick * Stronger emphasis on the management of conditions including genetic screening and gene therapy * Reviews of the second edition include these excerpts: A landmark book...well written, attractively designed and properly organized...The hundreds of illustrations, and references to the primary literature make this book a must..." The New England Journal of Medicine "80% of its pages are devoted to a comprehensive clinical coverage of genetic disorders...it seems to be a mine of useful information, well tabulated and extensively referenced." Trends in Genetics "No medical geneticist will practice without this book. Every library that deals with human biology or medicine should order this text. Highly recommended!" Annals of Human Biology "There is no competitor as a basic text for the trainee in clinical genetics, or for pediatric, obstetric and general medical libraries." British Journal of Hospital Medicine"

Product Description: Dealing mainly with the works of William Shakespeare, the essays in Close Readings without Readings reflect Stephen Booth’s lifelong interest in uncovering the ways great literature works upon readers.

The enduring and engaging guide to educating yourself in the classical tradition.Have you lost the art of reading for pleasure? Are there books you know you should read but haven’t because they seem too daunting? In The Well-Educated Mind, Susan Wise Bauer provides a welcome and encouraging antidote to the distractions of our age, electronic and otherwise.Newly expanded and updated to include standout works from the twenty-first century as well as essential readings in science (from the earliest works of Hippocrates to the discovery of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs), The Well-Educated Mind offers brief, entertaining histories of six literary genres―fiction, autobiography, history, drama, poetry, and science―accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the end of each chapter―ranging from Cervantes to Cormac McCarthy, Herodotus to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, Aristotle to Stephen Hawking―preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing.The Well-Educated Mind reassures those readers who worry that they read too slowly or with below-average comprehension. If you can understand a daily newspaper, there’s no reason you can’t read and enjoy Shakespeare’s sonnets or Jane Eyre. But no one should attempt to read the “Great Books” without a guide and a plan. Bauer will show you how to allocate time to reading on a regular basis; how to master difficult arguments; how to make personal and literary judgments about what you read; how to appreciate the resonant links among texts within a genre―what does Anna Karenina owe to Madame Bovary?―and also between genres.In her best-selling work on home education, The Well-Trained Mind, the author provided a road map of classical education for parents wishing to home-school their children; that book is now the premier resource for home-schoolers. In The Well-Educated Mind, Bauer takes the same elements and techniques and adapts them to the use of adult readers who want both enjoyment and self-improvement from the time they spend reading. Followed carefully, her advice will restore and expand the pleasure of the written word.
