This ancient Chinese work on military strategy by Master Sun is dating back a period in Chinese history where the central feudal state governed by the Zhou rulers was in decline with the result that regional rulers waged war among themselves to gain supremacy over each other. Sun, living at some time during the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 B.C.) was a military leader who wrote a remarkable piece of work dealing with the thirteen strategical principles (strategems) to be applied in warfare. His text is considered the oldest book on military strategy, and what he wrote was studied and considered useful and applied many centuries later inside and outside military. This book is in its essence a “psychology” and “philosophy” of war dealing with opponents in military struggle and civil life alike. The principles elaborated on are appreciated by leaders of military, business corporations and in sports today.

Introducing a revolutionary new approach to detail design in landscape architecture In this groundbreaking book, Niall Kirkwood of the Harvard Graduate School of Design takes a fresh,holistic approach to the theories, approaches, and practices of landscape detail. With the support of a wealth of graphic and written material taken from historic and contemporary landscape designwork, he clearly demonstrates the role that landscape detail plays in the design process. Going beyond theoretical considerations, Professor Kirkwood outlines landscape detail as a primary design activity, both pragmatic and poetic, using a range of built landscape design examples. A valuable resource for professionals and students in landscape architecture, architecture, urban design, and environmental design, The Art of Landscape Detail: * Provides a practical introduction to the aesthetic concerns, form, language, and expression of landscape detail * Explores a wide range of detail issues-including materials, climate, durability, implementation, and failure-and their influence on the overall detail design process * Examines detail design processes and research approaches that designers can apply in the analysis and development of their own work * Contains in-depth case studies of eight award-winning landscape architecture design projects, including provocative discussions with the designers on the establishment and evolution of their detail design philosophy * Features more than 150 images illustrating forms and site detail from national and international built landscapes

The Art Of Examining And Interpreting Histologic Preparations

The examination and interpretation of tissue sections seen under the light microscope in a laboratory setting is an example of student-directed, independent problem solving. The proper reading of a histologic section is an acquired art that can only be developed through practice, close observation and repetition. This laboratory manual was designed as a guide for students to aid them in this endeavor. The laboratory study guide/manual was designed to be used as a supplement to any current textbook and/or atlas of Histology. Learning objectives provide the overall goals for each chapter. The narrative of the study guide explains how to systematically breakdown, examine and interpret each tissue and/or organ encountered, without regard to a given histologic slide from a specific slide collection. Thus, this systematic method can be used to examine and interpret histologic preparations from any collection or of any species. The student is encouraged to sketch, label and create a personalized atlas while using this laboratory manual as a guide. The vocabulary that should be developed and used during the laboratory can be found quickly by going to the bold face type in the appropriate segment of the text. Each chapter contains one or more tables in which key structures used in the identification of a tissue/organ are presented, offering the briefest possible summary of important histologic features. As a final short review, an appendix provides summary tables that compare and contrasts the basic differences of several structures that are somewhat similar in general architecture.

Bette Davis said ‘Old age ain’t no place for sissies’. If that’s true, we could all use a little help as we approach our twilight years. Translator Tom Payne turns to Ovid, Seneca, Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Aristophanes to discover invigorating counsel on mental decline, medicine, late love affairs, death and legacy. This lively tour of ancient attitudes to ageing, supplemented by a translation of Cicero’s ‘On Old Age’, reveals the true art of growing old gracefully.
