Marcia Bartusiak's new book, 'Dispatches from Planet 3,' published by Yale University Press, offers a tour of major discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics that digs into the history behind these breakthroughs.
The second edition of CSHLPress' essential book on cell death retains the bottom-up approach of the first edition, starting with the enzymes that carry out the execution (caspases) and their cellular targets before examining the machinery that connects them to signals that cause cell death. It also describes the roles of cell death in development, neuronal selection, and the development of self-tolerance in the immune system, as well as how the body uses cell death to defend against cancer.
'Enteric Hepatitis Viruses,' published by CSHLPress, examines recent progress in our understanding of the biology and pathogenic mechanisms of HAV and HEV, as well as prospects for improving their control. Contributors explore the molecular characteristics and life cycles of HAV and HEV, their interactions with the liver and immune system, the clinical manifestations of the infections they cause, and their transmission via contaminated food and water. Additional topics include the geographic distributions of the various HAV and HEV genotypes.
Black studies scholar and sociologist publishes 20th anniversary edition of his groundbreaking book.
Associate Professor Devin Caughey's new book looks at a massive political shift that took place in a one-party region.
Perhaps it is somewhat singular to focus on engagement, as this is the very cornerstone of any research problem in human sciences. The research problems of the present volume speak for themselves: identity and rights; transfer and evolution of linguistic concepts from one culture to another; reconsiderations of ethical interpretation.
US Southern literature? Isn't that something to do with Huck Finn, rocking chairs on the porch, mint juleps and evil plantation owners? Not necessarily. Literary scholar Martyn Bone from the University of Copenhagen redefines the genre in a new book that traces literary routes to Denmark.
The co-authors, both environmental scientists, argue that Other World that is Still Possible (OWSP) can become humanity's future, despite the ever-growing threat of catastrophic climate change. But its realisation will require radical changes in both the political and physical economies. These changes include solarisation of energy supplies, the ecological transformation of agriculture and bottom-up social management of the global economy. The prerequisite for this transition is demilitarisation, opening up a regime of global cooperation.
New book explores the history of the global Pan-African movement from key political figures Marcus Garvey and Malcolm X, to cultural expression including the Afro hairstyle and the music of Bob Marley.
A new book argues that entertainment media like Game of Thrones, House of Cards and the Avengers film series shape our beliefs, in ways we aren't aware of, about social justice, crime and terrorism, tolerance and diversity, the benefits or dangers of technology and the characteristics of leadership. The author, a political science professor at the University of Vermont, based his conclusions on 13 separate studies and experiments.
